Trump suggests ‘profiling’ in US to stop domestic terrorism

Donald Trump suggested Sunday that the U.S. start “profiling” people inside the country to thwart terrorism, calling it a hateful but “common sense” tactic, in the aftermath of recent terror attacks.

“I think profiling is something we’re going to have to start thinking about as a country,” Trump said on CBS’ “Face the Nation.” “I hate the concept of profiling, but we have to start using common sense.”

The presumptive GOP presidential nominee also argued that other countries, including Israel, profile “and they do it successfully.”

Trump, as he has frequently argued, said radical Islamic groups are creating “big problems.”

It is a sound idea.

    Sorry Donald but it is NOT hateful at all and has nothing to do with hate. It has everything to do with national security and protecting the American people. If some insist it is hateful, who cares? It would also be just common sense in dealing with common criminals.

  • When the popular press and the left wrongly profile others, what does everyone think that they are doing?

    It’s time for the race hucksters and other assorted miscreants to pipe down. They are part of the problem. An elderly woman in a wheelchair is no threat to airplane security. A Middle Eastern man claiming to be fourteen when he clearly is forty is.

    I wish our pope could be as honest and truthful as Donald Trump.

    The Quran Profiles the 6,000,000,000 unbelievers as enemies of islam and allah to be killed if they don’ t accept the peaceful religion of islam or agree to the Head-tax to fund the sloth in islam .

    Muslims profiles every morning the they get and every Friday in the mosque as they believe they are the Master-Faith blessed by allah to rule the Earth by sharia .
    How sad that this Master-Faith in Europe and N America has the highest Welfare rate of any minority which is just over 50% in the USA and 70% in Europe.

    Islam in the USA has now started to slaughter the gays in mass.

    All serious policing always already profiles. You look for what is out of place, or what might go wrong. Trump should make clear that the present problem is that we (the leftist elites) don’t admit that profiling is integral to policing so that the left can play the anti-cop card whenever they want: look profiling! (no shit, Sherlock.)

    The problem is that we will never have enough cops to keep eyes on everyone who is into ISIS propaganda. Open the door to a large Muslim population and the terrorism problem, given the percentages, never goes away as long as the call to Jihad remains central to the religion. Let’s see Trump face this reality honestly.

      He is. He proposes banning all further Muslim immigration “until we figure out what’s going on.” Even with the reticence he has shown, his stance has still pissed off the media and the establishment of both political parties.

        Loretta Lynch has already stated the terms “ISIS” “Islam” etc. will be scrubbed from the Orlando 9ll tapes. How’s that going to be helpful going forward. At least Trump is naming the problem, maybe not using the exact correct terminology but he’s not trying to “whitewash” the problems with Islam, muslims, jihad.

      • truepeers

        Yes, but figuring out what’s going on is admitting that the FBI are going to again miss a mass killer, because there are not ever going to be enough cops to watch all the wannabes, given the present demographics, not pretending that lifting the magic ban on profiling is a serious solution. Religious murder will only end with a genuine, hence highly intelligent, war against all cults of human sacrifice, including those of the modern liberal West.

          Take islam off from the protection of religious liberty…as islam is not a religion…they know it and we know it.

          • truepeers

            Oh i think Islam is very much a religion. The problem is that the Western idea of religious liberty is rooted in the mediation of schisms and wars within Christianity. It was never intended to apply to cults of human sacrifice around the globe, that is until the modern West devolved and became itself obsessed with “revolutionary” or “progressive” (the “shooters” are just articulating their post-colonial oppression, we must not say anything too harsh, in fact we must appease and ncourage more killing, in the name of our gods) violence. The problem is to see, like Rene Girard, how only the Judeo-Christian tradition turns against human sacrifice, unlike other religions, but that the difference between Christianity and other religions is still a small (albeit very significant) one.

        We The People are pissed off at the establishment (bureaucrats), self proclaimed elites (politicians/bankers/international corporations) and news media…entertainment class too. They know their marxists house of cards is falling.

  • infedel

    Profiling…why that is just common sense; sure the indoctrinated snowflakes would explode, but they are not special…they were trained to be consumer surfs…but will wake up one day, before the last of us save their…or maybe we will not.
