She isn't a self-hating Japanese. She's Philipino, or half Philipino. And frankly, the point she makes about how we should use racial profiling makes sense. We weren't attacked on 9/11 by a bunch of Irish Catholics from South Boston, or a bunch of Homeboys from Bedford Stuyvesant. We have forced old women, little kids, and a whole slew of people to be inconvenienced because we are too PC to make the obvious connection between Islamofascism and people of Arab/South Asian descent. Because we are afraid of offending the sensitivities of a few, we are trampling on the civil liberties of everyone else--all so that we can claim to be "sensitive", and "diverse".
Okay, I stand corrected on Michelle being Phillipino-American. I read in some comments thread over at Atrios, I think, that she was Japanese. Last time I believe nything a moonbat says...
We're largely in agreement otherwise; if you're looking for a big Irishman with a scar across his face, you're not gonna go strip-searching li'l ol' Sister Mary Molecule.
But it's just that Michelle was defending the internemnt of Japanese-Americans during World War II, which I found surprising. Opposing the search no more than two arabs per flight rule by defending the internments during WW2 might not be the most effective way to gain support.
