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?

New York's Green Light Law - Allows Illegal Aliens To Get Driver’s Licenses

New York passed a law to allow illegal immigrants to obtain driver’s licenses earlier this year but it was held up by challenges.

Now it is set to take effect this week.

In typical leftist fashion, supporters claim this is going to somehow make New York’s roads safer for everyone.

Could it really be about voting?

FOX News reports:

Illegal immigrants to be able to get driver’s licenses in NY after legal challenge fails.

Illegal immigrants in New York will able to obtain driver’s licenses starting next week after a last-minute legal challenge was dismissed — making it the 13th state to allow the practice, but one that critics say is unconstitutional.

The Green Light Law, signed by Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo earlier this year, allows anyone to apply for a driver’s license regardless of immigration status and does not require a Social Security number.

Illegal immigrants can use a combination of documents that include a valid passport from a foreign country and a valid foreign driver’s license, as long as it has been expired for less than two years.

“After waiting 18 years to have their right to drive restored, thanks to our legislature, New York can now officially join 12 other states in making driver’s licenses legally available to all residents,” New York Immigration Coalition Executive Director Steve Choi said in a statement this week, arguing that it will make roads safer and the economy stronger.

County clerks in New York have concerns and are sounding an alarm.

CBS News in Albany reports:

County clerks concerned by loopholes in Green Light law.

Undocumented immigrants now have the green light to get a driver’s license in New York…but several county clerks in the Capital Region are concerned.

Saratoga County Clerk Craig Hayner said, “We found that everything we were concerned about as far as fraud and all sorts of other things are in that bill, in that regulation and we’re very concerned.”

Hayner tells CBS6’s Lynsey Smith there are a few loopholes in the Green Light Law.

Loopholes, such as a person coming in to get their license and not having to provide their social security number.

“That could lead to criminals coming from other states, coming in and use that as a way to defraud by just simply saying they don’t have a social security number…and that’s a very dangerous loophole,” replied Hayner.

Does anyone believe this is going to make New York safer or that this is really about driving?
