Oklahoma James Inhofe: “All Terrorists Are Muslims Or Middle Easterners…By And Large”
If this is the kind of rhetoric Republicans think will help them, they’ve got another thing coming. During a Senate Armed Forces Committee hearing looking into the Fort Hood shooting, Oklahoma Senator James Inhofe advocated racial and ethnic profiling by smearing an entire ethnicity and religion.
INHOFE: I’m, for one — I know it’s not politically correct to say it — I believe in racial and ethnic profiling. I think if you’re looking at people getting on an airplane and you have X amount of resources to get into it, you get at the targets, and not my wife. And I just think it’s something that should be looked into. The statement that’s made, it’s probably 90 percent true with some exceptions like the Murrah federal office building in my state, Oklahoma. Those people, they were not Muslims, they were not Middle Easterners. But when you hear that not all Middle Easterners or Muslims between the age of 20 and 35 are terrorists, but all terrorists are Muslims or Middle Easterners between the age of 20 and 35, that’s by and large true.
