Polls Show Majority Of Americans Support Ethnic/Terrorist Profiling And Consider September 11 Attack More Significant Than The Attack on Pearl Harbor
Well, the same pollster - Quinnipiac - shows that 60 percent to 37 percent margin, respondents said authorities should single out people who look "Middle Eastern" for security screening at locations such as airports and train stations -- a finding that drew sharp criticism by civil liberties groups.
60 percent to 37 percent! Why, that's a Michael "Fat Bastard" Moore sized gap between those who FAVOR "Middle Eastern" profiling and those who are against it!
And the poor peeing-in-their-pants civil liberties groups are all bent out of shape about these results. Well, that should tell you volumes about the differences between people who honestly want to combat terrorism and consider it a very real threat and those who prefer to pacify terrorists at any cost, especially the cost of maybe "insulting" them (G A S P)!
Quinnipiac also found that 56 percent of voters [polled] picked Sept. 11 as more significant, while 33 percent picked Pearl Harbor. Voters older than 65 picked Sept. 11 as more significant 42 percent of the time, compared to 39 percent for Pearl Harbor.
Since Liberals loooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooove polls, because polls "tell them" how to pander to their constituents, and since Liberals loooooooooooooooooooooooooooooove the Quinnipiac poll, I'm sure they'll adopt a brand new outlook on profiling, won't they?
Gee, do you think Liberal Politicians will glom onto these results in the hopes that by doing so they will be elected or re-elected? C'mon Libs --- you're the group that took poll results as gospel during the Clinton Administration. Will you put these two Quinnipiac polls where your mouth is? My bookie cautions not to bet on it.
