Van Jones: If Trump Is Going to Profile Muslims for Mass Shootings, Should Profile ‘Young White Men’ Too

CNN contributor Van Jones responded to Trump’s call for racially profiling with a few pointed statements condemning the new plan. In a Sunday interview, Trump laid out his plan for racially profiling in order to prevent further attacks against the United States

“Well I think profiling is something that we’re going to have to start thinking about as a country. Other countries do it, you look at Israel and you look at others, they do it and they do it successfully. And I hate the concept of profiling but we have to start using common sense and we have to use our heads,” said Trump, in an interview with CBS news.

Jones pointed out this afternoon that Muslims are not the primary perpetrators of mass shootings:

“I just think it’s really interesting that we’re talking about racially profiling in the context of mass shootings,’ he said. “The vast majority of the people who are doing the mass shootings in America aren’t Muslims at all.”

“Young white men,” CNN host Brooke Baldwin said.

“You are seven times more likely to be killed by a right wing extremist — a racist or an anti-government nutjob — seven times more likely than a Muslim,” Jones added.

Percentages can be tricky. Muslims only make up, hopefully, not more than 2% of the white male American population. Of course the larger percentage will be White males. I wonder what their per capital numbers are?

... and Comrade Jones deliberately failed to mention that Black criminals commit murder at a rate 11 times that of White & Hispanic criminals combined ...

Behavioral profiling such as the Israelis use will pick up signals from people of all races, ethnicity and nationalities ... Comrade Jones, the would-be Commissar Jones, is a racist-Communist nut case.

Van is so silly he is amusing.

He is a communist traitor to this country

spin spin spin, that is what we are all so damn tired of.

Gaslight, gaslight and more gaslighting!

The Israelis are alive because of this.  We need to remove these troglodytes from our country and protect ourselves from these 7th century savages.  It's a matter of safety which this fool does not understand.

If it is the group of Middle-Eastern, male, Muslims who have committed the overwhelming number of terrorist attacks then it is that group of people who must be subjected to increased observation, however - in today's climate of the neo-liberal who is afraid of "offending" someone (anyone), such warranted increased observation of that group  will not happen.

I challenge Van-Jones to prove the assertion " “You are seven times more likely to be killed by a right wing extremist — a racist or an anti-government nutjob — seven times more likely than a Muslim.”  I wonder which races he includes in the terms racist and anti-government nut-job.  In addition, let us recall that most of the White Nut-Jobs killing people were wacked out leftist, Democrats.

I agree with Van-Jones... profiling should be used to identify and isolate individuals (regardless of their race) who have a high potential for committing terrorist acts. (regardless of their race or religious affiliation)  Profiling is a tool and should be used by law enforcement to identify SUSPECTS... to focus their limited resources on those most likely to engage in terrorist acts.

I take no advice from a card carrying communist.

One isn't taking advice  From Van Jones...  if they happen to agree with profiling as a tool .... it is color blind when properly used.  If Van Jones says the sky is blue and one agrees with that statement does it mean they are taking advice from Van Jones?  Hardly.

So CNN (Communist News Network) why don't you call Jesse Jackson back for his comments?

ALERT ALERT

Joe Biden Vows: Give Taxpayer-Funded Obamacare To All Illegal Aliens In U.S.

Former Vice President and 2020 Democrat presidential primary candidate Joe Biden is vowing to give Obamacare, funded by American taxpayers, to all 11 to 22 million illegal aliens living in the United States.

During an interview with Telemundo’s Jose Diaz-Balart, Biden forgot that Obamacare technically bans illegal aliens from enrolling in healthcare plans — although illegal aliens are still able to obtain subsidized and free healthcare at Americans’ expense — and promised that under his plan, all 11 to 22 million illegal aliens would be able to get Obamacare.

The exchange went as follows:

DIAZ-BALART: When I … NBC moderated that first debate with you, I didn’t … I don’t recall a clear answer, under your plan should … would the 11, 12 million undocumented immigrants that live in the United States, that have been here many for generations, would they have access …

BIDEN: Yes.

DIAZ-BALART: — to health insurance.

BIDEN: Yes, they … if they can buy into the system like everybody else.

DIAZ-BALART: Because you know, in [Obamacare] they can’t.

BIDEN: Yeah. Yeah, I know. Well they can, that’s my point. They continue to be able to do that.

DIAN-BALART: They cannot under the ObamaCare.

BIDEN: Well and that’s my point, they will though. They will be able to buy into … [illegal aliens] would be able to buy in, just like anyone else could.

Biden joins Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), and South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg — among other 2020 Democrats — in committing to forcing American taxpayers to pay for healthcare for illegal aliens who arrive in the U.S.

Already, due to loopholes, American taxpayers are spending nearly $20 billion every year to provide illegal aliens with subsidized healthcare, emergency room visits, and other health services.

Under the 2020 Democrats’ plan to provide taxpayer-funded healthcare to all illegal aliens living in the U.S., Americans would be billed potentially $660 billion every decade just to cover the costs. Other research has found that the plan would cost Americans at least $23 billion every year.

As Breitbart News has reported, experts have said that giving taxpayer-funded healthcare to effectively all foreign nationals who can make it to America’s borders would drive “strong incentives for people with serious health problems to enter the country or remain longer than their visas allow in order to get government-funded care.”

Despite 2020 Democrats’ continued push for taxpayer-funded healthcare for illegal aliens, American voters are overwhelmingly opposed to the plan. The latest Wall Street Journal/NBC News survey revealed that the healthcare-for-illegal-aliens plan is the least popular policy position, with opposition from 62 percent of U.S. voters.

Similarly, a CNN poll from July discovered that 63 percent of likely swing voters oppose providing healthcare to illegal aliens, along with nearly 6-in-10 of all likely U.S. voters and 61 percent of moderates. A Rasmussen Reports survey also found that likely voters, by a majority of 55 percent, oppose giving healthcare to even the most low-income illegal aliens.
