This is either really, really tasteless satire or the most incredibly stupid ad ever made. You decide which. It must be seen to be believed.
Beyond the obvious stupidity of lining up an old gray white guy and a young burly olive-skinned guy and asking which looks like a terrorist, his punch line actually argues for racial profiling.
“Let’s face it. If a good-looking ripped guy without much hair was flying an airplane into the twin towers, I’d have no problem being pulled out of line at the airport.”
Or, put a bit differently, racial profiling is really just fine with Dan Fanelli. He thinks it makes us safer.
Oh, he’s also one of a zillion candidates running against Rep. Alan Grayson. If you feel so inclined, please consider a donation to Blue America for Rep. Grayson. The idea of any candidate like this actually having a prayer of winning is almost more than my little blue heart can stand.
