A White Army of Terror


Fox News offers shocking new proof that al-Qaeda doesn't fight fair:

Al Qaeda is building a white army of terror in the United Kingdom, according to the U.K.'s Scotland on Sunday.
This will make things much harder for the UK's white army of anti-terror:
Security experts say the growing number of white terrorists poses a serious threat because they are less likely to be detected than members of the Asian [?] community.
Want to build your own white army of terror? Here's how:
One reported strategy the terrorists use is to look for converts in prisons, where those in custody tend to be lonely and particularly susceptible. Recruiters comfort and support the inmate, with little mention — if any — to religion, according to the paper. Over time, conversations turn more radical.
This is altogether terrible news. I don't want to sound like an alarmist...but we're all gonna die! (Eventually.)

On the bright side, Western civilization does have an ace up its sleeve:
One of leading Muslim leaders [sic] disputed the claims of radicalization, saying Islam's strict moral code made it unattractive to many Westerners, the paper reported.
Mass murder is one thing, but giving up booze and porn is quite another. Thank heavens for Western decadence!

Seem to remember that some of the Sept. 11th bombers spent their last night boozing it up in a strip joint, so maybe that's not so safe either.

After that attack or maybe it was during the hey-day of Tom Ridge Garrison Keilor did a skit about exposing Islamic terrorists by inviting them in and offering them a ham sandwich or, as I recall, a drink. Maybe they should make drinking manditory. I'd advocate the other test but I'm a vegetarian.

Clearly the only solution is more racial profiling: Frisk *all* us white people!

Hey, it's a sacrifice I'm willing to make to keep us all safe - after all, I have nothing to hide.

Or at least the ones who don't have flag lapel pins....

OMG does that mean Al Qaeda will be going after spinsters next?

Angela, dahlin, Al's a pretty horny guy...virgins, on the whole, aren't really THAT much fun...Spinsters needn't be virgins, but if they are, then they're likely to be grateful for the attention...

madamab, don't forget Timmuh McVeigh, that pore, inn'cent boy...

olvlzl, i think we should have bars set up at all the points of entry in the country, with mandatory shots of whiskey, tequila, and rum. Refuse the drink--we could call it the Presidential Dram--and be unceremoniously returned whence you came...

Phila, those flag pins have sharp points which could be used to hijack an airplane and fly it into a skyscraper. I'm surprised at you; I thought you were serious.

eli, your blameless life is an icon to us all, brother
