Average White Guy Terrorists? PUH-lease.

There’s an ongoing controversy about how the TSA screens everyone aggressively, no matter how young, old, or incredibly unlikely to be a terrorist they are.

On the one hand, they’re just doing their job. On the other hand, six-year-old girls, old ladies in wheelchairs wearing diapers, and celebrities just don’t seem to be a pressing threat in the fight against Islamic fundamentalist jihad.

–Whether you’re sick of the debate or not, there’s a corny new educational video from the Department of Homeland Security that’s pretty amusing.

It’s not just because the acting is awful,

It’s because of the INCREDIBLE lengths they go to portray terrorists as average, middle-aged white dudes . . . whether it’s the guys in the scenarios planting bombs, or the news clippings of the Unabomber and the Oklahoma City bomber.

–And every time someone in the video “does the right thing” by noticing something suspicious . . . they’re black, Asian, or Arab. PUH-lease.
