TOMMY LEE JONES DOESN'T MINCE WORDS ON FENCE

Rating: 2 votes, 5.00 average.

The big-time actor says the border fence plan "bears all the credibility and seriousness of flying saucers from Mars
or leprechauns. Or any manner of malicious, paranoid superstition. In
other words, it's bull[bleep]."

    Fence is diverting attention from fighting Middle Eastern terrorism by focusing on the wrong enemy despite similar religions based strictly on the color of the skin. Secondly, the fence tantamounts to Berlin Wall, ie., communism, although granted, the latter was meant to keep people in..it also was meant to keep western troublemakers out. So, fence = Marxism...which brings me to the final point that Pat Buchanan is a communist masquerading as a conservative.

    Recovering alcoholic? Based on his views on immigration and his frequent claims that Americans can and are willing to pay $4 a lettuce if illegals are sent home makes me think that alcoholic is a right description, but recovering, I doubt it.

    I agree with you George this guy is such an idiot, but for some reason CNN did not think it had enough idiots on with Lou Dobbs so they had to bring another one on board, it must bring ratings up or something!!!

    Unfortunately in Asia listening to these idiots is taken as an entertainment...a comedy.

    George you call other people racist, but you are talking about middle east terrorism isn't that a racist statement? or at least racial profiling. Terrorism is not just Middle eastern or Islamic for that matter. Terrorism does not have a religion or race it is simply a Terrorism. Some of the worlds most infamous Terrorist organizations aren't middle eastern or Islamic for that matter. Most of the middle eastern people are just like you and me peace loving. Please don't tarnish the message by putting race in it.

    I was referrring to fighting Islamic fundamentalists such as the Taliban. Talking about the Taliban, severe action should be taken against the American talibans, ie., the white Polygamists in the Texas compound who treat women worse than the Taliban,

    It is the South Asians, especially the dark skinned South Indian and Sri Lankan christians who get detained at the airport security..several of my relatives who are actually fundamentalist christians get detained and harassed all the time because the officers cannot tell the difference between a Hindu/Christian vs a moslem name..hence they detain on the basis of skin color.

    Still George My point stays. Race has nothing to do with Terrorism. Also you mentioned Taliban; Taliban is not Middle eastern it is Afghan. Middle eastern are Arabs they are as different as from Afghans as Europeans are from Latin Americans. They are a different race, different culture, different language. The only similarity is the religion. You mentioned "several of my relatives who are actually fundamentalist christians get detained and harassed all the time because the officers cannot tell the difference between a Hindu/Christian vs a moslem name" are you suggesting that Racial profiling is bad but religious profiling is not? No religion in its true form spreads hate. All religions including Islam are about loving thy neighbor and other such things.

    "are you suggesting that Racial profiling is bad but religious profiling is not?"

    No, I am saying that in the profiling comes down to skin color. A darker skinned person could automatically be assumed to be a moslem. Profiling is always directed at a dark skinned person. If a white looking moslem woman with no head scarf and a dark skinned Singaporean Tamil Christian go to a TSA check point, the white skinned moslem would be let go and they will detained the dark skinned Tamil Christian. This happened recently in the US.

    May be "they" were looking for LTTE. And as you say "they" can't tell the difference between a Hindu/Christian and a Muslim south asian.

    Actually, they let the moslem Lebanese go because she looked white with a "western" name Brenda. But, they detained the dark skinned Tamil woman from Singapore, and they did not ask her about LTTE..they asked her about Islamic fundamentalists...all based on skin color...not religion.
