In Which Otters Fight Political Correctness

Yet another member of a Certain Ethnic Group has been arrested on charges of being armed and ready to carry out a terrorist attack on American soil. This guy had ricin, the same stuff that shut down the Capitol when it was sent to Bill Frist, the same stuff that can kill a person in half-milligram quantities. And this comes less than four months after another member of the same Ethnic Group was caught planning to bomb U.S. churches and other civilian targets. It comes less than two years after federal agents uncovered an enormous network of terrorist activity, including fake federal IDs and caches of weapons, even a sodium cyanide bomb capable of killing hundreds - all, you guessed it, organized by members of this same Ethnic Group.

It must be taking truly heroic effort on the part of the interests who control our media, to willfully avoid connecting the dots here. We're supposed to believe that all these crimes are isolated incidents. We're supposed to piously mouth assurances that these repeated terrorist plots don't reflect on the "vast majority of Certain Ethnic Group members, who are peace-loving, law-abiding, loyal citizens," and ignore the evidence that these so-called law-abiding Ethnic Group members covertly support the terrorists among them. No doubt, we'll be expected to ignore the links between the latest suspect and radical religious movements, just as we weren't allowed to ask hard questions about the religion that supported the last guy - because (of course) "theirs is a religion of peace."

Well, I've had enough. I don't care how "politically incorrect" it is - I want to do whatever it takes to keep America safe from terrorism. If that means a crackdown on the civil rights of members of Certain Ethnic Group, well, so be it.
