Trump: U.S. Should ‘Seriously’ Consider Profiling Muslims in U.S. as Terrorism-Fighting Tool

by Associated Press
June 20, 2016

Donald Trump suggested Sunday that the United States should “seriously” consider profiling Muslims inside the country as a terrorism-fighting tool, the latest example of the Republican presidential nominee-in-waiting increasingly backing positions that could single out a group based on their religion.

“We really have to look at profiling,” Trump said in an interview broadcast Sunday on CBS’s “Face the Nation.” ”It’s not the worst thing to do.”

The presumptive Republican presidential nominee added that he “hate(s) the concept of profiling, but we have to use common sense.”

The statements are consistent with Trump’s other, long-expressed views on how to stop terrorism in the United States, including a temporary ban on foreign Muslims from entering the country until the U.S. can figure out “what is going on.”

    The State Department has no problem profiling Evangelicals, Tea Party members, etc. as a mythical group they call right wing extremists. But to profile a real group which is violent, and to put forth efforts to curtail their acts would take nerve, which they lack.
    They, Congress, and the Courts, find it easier just to submit and see what happens with an ideology boasting of “kiss the enemy’s hand until you find an opportunity to cut it off.”

    Israel has successfully profiled for years. We have had planes hijacked many times over the years, how many has Israel had hijacked? They do have attacks by the arabs in Jerusalem and other cities but most of the arab terrorists are killed on the spot something that the U.S. has lost it’s ability to do.
    We should profile and track every muslim in this country and deport them immediately if they are even suspected of anything that is un-American. No trial, no lawyers just put them on a plane with nothing but the clothes on their backs and send them to what ever hell hole they came from and include all of their extended family members as well.

    Pretty simple technique, profiling! all of us are profiled every time we fly!!!! they check each one of us….except for those in burkas!!! I say lets all wear a burka when we fly. it should do one or two things….stop checking everyone when they want to board an aircraft, OR CHECK EVERYONE IN A BURKA!!! either way its a win win….

    Why not? The moslimes are actually in their religious centers planning and preaching this jihadist crapola. The government knows this and has been covering for them during BO’s terms cause he is a moslime himself who has moved moslimes into agency positions during his terms. God, the idiots who voted him in which includes the dead, deaf, and dumb were so dense not to see this coming. I sincerely hope some of them have felt the pain of doing so. BO has no favored legal citizens in this country. He has contempt for all including the dem lemmings he has manipulated so adroitly. And now Hillary with the same agenda is running for that prez spot too. Better rethiink the whole NWO and open borders dems.

      Censorship has begun in the United States now. We can’t be allowed to hear what terrorists are saying. That is completely against the American way of life. Next is Obama burning all the books he doesn’t want around. He already wants to throw you in prison if you don’t agree with his climate BS. So much for free speech. How anyone didn’t see this coming with this dictator, is beyond belief.

    American citizens giving up their right to privacy and illegal search and seizure, while demeaning the need to profile are simply morons, and cowards. They are the same that will enjoy govt. surveillance in their own bathroom in a few short years.

      Can’t agree with you on that in these times. Trump is right in wanting a temporary ban on Muslims and on the need to profile until the United States can get a handle on terrorists and get a way to stop them from killing any more people. People are profiled by law enforcement every day. If a white 300 lb guy robs a bank, then the police will look for a white 300 lb guy. That is profiling. No one is saying make profiling a permanent policy. In times of war, some tough measures must be taken. We have a administration that not only will not identify the terrorists, but know is censoring what the American people can hear what the terrorists are saying. How UN-American is that. When will Obama start book burning? He already want to jail people that don’t agree with his global warming ideas.
