I don't recall any suburban

I don't recall any suburban white kids trying to light their underwear on fire as they get on planes or blowing up train stations...

selective memory

Does the name "Timothy McVey" ring any bells?

Cameras

You know there are cameras everywhere. What happens after the bad officers are weeded out and you have a bunch of bad actors/offenders caught digitally?

We need to move upstream on this families, pregnancy prevention and pre-school. What's racist is funding a Vikings Stadium and not those efforts.

Ellison's a phony

How would anyone know Ellison's a Muslim unless he told us? He doesn't use a Muslim name. He doesn't wear traditional Muslim clothing. So the only ones who would know he's a Muslim and thereby be in a position to discriminate against him would be people who he chose to know about his religion.

So if he claims he's been discriminated against, it's of his own making. Hey Keith, go pay your overdue parking tickets like us non-Muslims have to.
