(Right Country) – The thing about political correctness is that it’s supposedly immoral to tell the truth about large groups of people if they adhere to an ideology that’s associated with a race or a religion.
No matter how often we see people who adhere to this religion openly declare, and act upon, their desire to kill people in the name of their god.
It doesn’t matter who gets offended by it: the cold, hard truth about Islam is that many of its adherents want to kill you.
And anyone with even the slightest understanding of recent history knows they often seek out airplanes to do it.
In fact, we’re all subject to much more stringent airport security measures because of the greatest Islamic attack in the modern history of the religion: September 11, 2001.
Airline boss Michael O’Leary is being slammed by the usual crowd for suggesting that airport security checks should pay more attention to male Muslim passengers traveling alone as opposed to families with children “because that is where the threat is coming from”.
“Who are the bombers? They are going to be single males travelling on their own,” O’Leary, CEO of Ryaniar, said in an interview with The Times of the UK.
“If you are travelling with a family of kids, on you go; the chances you are going to blow them all up is zero,” he suggested.
“You can’t say stuff, because it’s racism, but it will generally be males of a Muslim persuasion. Thirty years ago it was the Irish. If that is where the threat is coming from, deal with the threat.”

This caused heads to explode, of course.
“He openly advocates discrimination against ‘males of a Muslim persuasion’, which presumably is not based on specific intelligence but solely whether someone ‘looks or acts like a Muslim’,” declared a Muslim Brotherhood-linked Muslim Council of Britain spokesman.
“This is the very definition of Islamophobia,” the spokesman added.
No, it’s the very definition of sensible and realistic.
British Muslim MP Khalid Mahmood, who Breitbart notes “gained a certain notoriety during the expenses scandal when he was revealed to have claimed £1,350 for a stay in a five-star hotel with his then-girlfriend” also criticized O’Leary’s comments.
“Security at airports is not an easy process but these comments do not contribute to the debate and are not the way to deal with it,” he said.
“He’s effectively saying ‘everyone is game — if they look like a Muslim then they must be a terrorist’. It doesn’t improve community relations; it gives succour to people of a fascist mindset… Should we profile white people to see if they’re fascists?” he declared.

“[O’Leary is] being very blinkered and is actually encouraging racism.”
