Trump is not mincing words and he has a PLAN. “Our leaders are — I don’t even say ‘weak,’ — I say ‘stupid,’” he said.”
Many believe that political correctness is making us less safe, and vulnerable to the modern threats of terror presented by Radical Islam. If you are of a similar opinion, Republican Presidential Nominee Donald Trump has a few ideas that will make you happy.
Breitbart reported Trump’s comments:
“You’ll never solve the problem if you’re afraid to use the real name, this is radical Islamic terrorism,” he said, after a bomb went off in New York City and injured 29 people. Over the weekend, law enforcement officials discovered and diffused several bombs placed around the city.
Trump praised law enforcement for doing an excellent job combating terrorism in America’s cities, but suggested that political correctness was getting in the way. He cited the security measures by Israel as an example.
“In Israel they profile, they’ve done an unbelievable job, as good as you can do,” Trump said. “They profile. They see somebody that is suspicious, they will profile, they will take that person in, they’ll check out. Do we have choice? Look what’s going on? Do we really have a choice? … This is only going to get worse.”
This is not the first time Trump has called for such a practice. “Other countries do it, you look at Israel and you look at others, they do it and they do it successfully. And I hate the concept of profiling, but we have to start using common sense and we have to use our heads,” Trump told CBSNews in June 2016.
Trump ridiculed President Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton on Monday, criticizing them for being weak on terror and failing to address the source of terrorism because of political correctness.
“Our leaders are — I don’t even say ‘weak,’ — I say ‘stupid,’” he said in an interview on Fox and Friends.
Trump warned that these kinds of attacks would continue, as long as Obama and the Democrats continued to welcome additional refugees from Syria into the United States and fail to destroy ISIS overseas.
“These are sick evil people that want to destroy this country, the way we coddle them, and the way we’re afraid to say anything, and we’re afraid to say what the problem is and who they are and they don’t want to say radical Islam they don’t want to talk about radical Islamic terrorism,” Trump said.
It is certainly true that Israeli El Al Airlines has an excellent record in preventing hijackings and acts of terror. El Al has been profiling in some fashion for decades.
Trump’s proposal likely mimics aggressive Israeli counter-terrorism practices, which include racial and religious profiling. Israel’s Ben-Gurion International Airport remains one of the safest airports in the world, in large part due to Israeli security. When asked why security practices at Israeli airports were superior to U.S. airports, an Israeli defense official told the country’s media in 2010, “Oh, that’s simple …We use racial profiling, they don’t.”
Passengers boarding flights in Israel are subject to a battery of questions before boarding their flights. These questions focus on age, race, religion and destination to query the passenger’s potential terrorist threat. Based on the results of these questions, passengers are relegated to different levels of security screening before takeoff.
Do you support Trump’s ideas? Should these profiling practices be in place in America?
