Coulter lauded discrimination against Arab, Middle Eastern,

In Ann Coulter's April 28 syndicated column, titled "Arab Hijackers Now Eligible For Pre-Boarding," the right-wing pundit described her search for the airline that, post-September 11, has "engaged in the most egregious discrimination" against passengers who appeared to be Arab, Middle Eastern, or Muslim, "so [Coulter] could fly only that airline."

Undeterred by airlines' "heated" denials, Coulter suggested some "great slogans" for those airlines accused of the most egregious acts of discrimination:

Like many of you, I carefully reviewed the lawsuits against the airlines in order to determine which airlines had engaged in the most egregious discrimination, so I could fly only that airline. But oddly, rather than bragging about the charges, the airlines heatedly denied discriminating against Middle Eastern passengers. What a wasted marketing opportunity! Imagine the great slogans the airlines could use:

  • "Now Frisking All Arabs -- Twice!"
  • "More Civil-Rights Lawsuits Brought by Arabs Than Any Other Airline!"
  • "The Friendly Skies -- Unless You're an Arab"
  • "You Are Now Free to Move About the Cabin -- Not So Fast, Mohammed!"

If John Kerry would promise to fire Norman Mineta and start racial profiling at the airports, I would campaign for him. Unfortunately, like George Bush, Kerry doesn't travel commercial air with the little people.

Coulter's column, which is syndicated by Universal Press Syndicate, also appeared on The Heritage Foundation's website Townhall.com and on her own website.
