...I don't get it.
The last sentence indicates that the Congressman thinks he is a good looking ripped guy just like his life-partner, and that only old fogeys like the guy on the left commit terrorism. Am I hearing that wrong?

its funny how some people are so god damned stupid they can't get past our most basic psychological tendencies to group things (or people) based solely on appearance.
Plus there's been attempted attacks by people old and young, weak and fit, white, black, Arab, and Hispanic. The only underrepresented group is women. But for some reason he ignores the obvious physical difference that would protect half the population, in favor of characteristics that describe himself.
Give me a break, though appearance doesn't say everything about everybody it does say a lot. Stating that law enforcement can't be guided by people's appearance is pure idealistic bullshit. You guys are likely guilty of it too. If you just got a lot of money from an ATM who would you rather see when you turn around a young black man or a little white woman. And If you tell me it wouldn't matter to you then you're a liar.
It wouldn't matter. I'm not a liar. I'm a Canadian. Maybe black people are scarier in the states.
Or maybe you're a racist.
KillerGAYzebo: You're a Canadian so I'll just profile you as an idiot and ignore you.
Your middle-school debate tactics are an inspiration to Conservatives everywhere.
For real, ain't no party like a Mark of the Nation party. Nice to see you again.

The guy on the left looks like a fucking serial killer.
The guy on the right is also the most likely to be a marine, a police officer, an air marshal, a stripper, and an Italian. The guy on the left looks like he has less to live for, more room in his clothing for concealed weapons, and (under Dan Fanelli's perfect system) wouldn't have gone through security.
@The Mothership we already have the Chris-chan tag.
Rather than talking about profiling a priori, why not just look at the fucking numbers? I'd be willing to buy it's "common sense" (it's animal sense, but that's besides the point) if it actually bought us anything.
And then, only at that point, could we begin to ask: are the rights of brown people to be secure in their persons worth more than the rights of white people to feel more secure in their airports?
But only then.

Makes sense to me. If a crime is committed you can make fairly good bets on the criminal's race. I don't think of it as racial profiling, but more like statistical analysis.
I am ordering you, and Cena_Mark to be kidding. If you refuse, how about pulling up some statistics that actually support what you're fucking saying? You should both also know that criminologists in the past have theorized that there is a link between physical characteristics and "criminality". That idea died in the last century when no one could find any empirical fucking evidence of it.
Anyway, I am refusing to believe this video is not fake.
Thank you, good Doctor. It's not a "white guy crime", it's not a "brown guy crime", it's a fucking crime. It doesn't have a face. Not even terrorism has a face. There have been acts of terrorism throughout history, it hasn't only been in existence for the last 9 years.
A few more recent examples of terrorists who were not brown:
Ted Kaczynski, unibomber
Eric Robert Rudolph, Olympic park bomber
Andrew Joseph Stack III, flew his plane into an IRS building
Lucas John Helder, Midwest pipe bomber
Bruce Edwards Ivins, suspected anthrax-mailer
Oh and I found this handy wiki page here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Terrorism_in_the_United_States
The point: You cannot spot a criminal by the way he or she looks.
Are we counting shooting sprees? Because then there's pretty much every workplace shooting spree ever.
CHARLES FUCKING WHITMAN
Or schools. Dylan Klebold and the other kid, plus countless others.
Charles, those are good examples and only further prove my point. I am not sure if that was your intention or not. When looking for a terrorist suspect, we can hone down are search to a high probability of being middle eastern as well as a smaller, but still high probability of being white. Statistics also show us that the suspect we look for is most likely not black, chinese or japanese.
We can also apply statistics to other crimes. For example when we are looking for a...
..drive by gang shooting, there is a good chance they are black or mexican.
...serial killer, there is a good chance they are white.
...abortion clinic bomber, there is a good chance they are white.
Of course no rule could be 100%, but you already knew that.
A study that links physical characteristics and crimes sounds silly. I can't imagine that there would be a successful study like that.

Old white people have committed more acts of terrorism than any life form in planetary history.

Stop invading our privacy, and start invading others' privacy!
Specifically, swarthy well-built men's privacy.
Also pretty sure the "good-looking, ripped guy" line was supposed to be ironic, like all the kids are into these days. The delivery was just so teeth-grindingly awkward.

So uhh, is this meant to be tongue in cheek or not?

Re: the stuff above about how white people also commit terrorist acts:
This has nothing to do with crime and everything to do with FL being a place where you can get votes with this ad. He's not running for Senate, so what the fuck is he going to do about profiling? Cosponsor some dead-in-the-water bill that would indemnify law-breaking mall cops whenever the girl that got strip searched wasn't white?
Look at his site. He lists the "green movement" as enemies under the "warn on terror" section. He whines about the constitution being "trampled upon" while running ads that piss all over the 4th amendment. He complains categorically about politicians while running for office.
ONE BROWN GUY WITH AN UNEXPLODED BOMB DOES NOT MEAN WE NEED TO BE A FUCKING POLICE STATE, JESUS FUCKING CHRIST

the original video was just fanelli's first ad with no commentary. this one has two of his ads, with commentary, and a little KITH to boot.
