News from China's security efforts with regard to the Olympics revealed that China has banned Muslims from flying on domestic airlines (sorry no link for this part, but trust me) and the police are ordering Chinese merchants and hoteliers to report suspicious persons, specifically anyone Muslim, Indian (not the Sioux), Middle Eastern, or black and, at least at first glance, moronic Jewish American comedians turned Senate candates, to the police. http://www.usatoday.com/news/world/2008-08-04-china-host_N.htm
Now, the radical left will have us believe that racial profiling began with the LAPD pulling over blacks for driving while black and expanded to the whole U.S. where innocent blacks and others (just fill in your favorite oppressed minority except for homosexuals, who have yet to get on this bandwagon) are questioned and arrested "just because they are _____". http://www.manhattan-institute.org/html/mac_donald.htm?f=yes#01 (Read all of Heather McDonald on the myth of racist police profiling.)
The Chinese, though, are not impressed with such nonsense and are concentrating, mostly, on the dangers to the Olympics and the safety of their society overall, which, of course, would explain efforts to censor the idiocy of Al Franken. Obviously the Chinese don't want a 9/11, or another Olympic Massacre, or destroy their ecomony with the bad advice from a hasbeen comedian. But the essential truth is that the Chinese, and we, except for Norman Minetta, know who is killing people for political and religious profit. The Chinese do not deny it, but we do. Perhaps that is why this century will be a Chinese century.
