"He who does not think himself worth saving from poverty and ignorance by his own efforts, will hardly be thought worth the efforts of anybody else." -- Frederick Douglass, Self-Made Men (1872)
McDonald v. Santa Fe Trail Transportation Co., 427 U.S. 273, 96 S.Ct. 2574 (1976). Two White employees and one Black employee were charged with stealing property from their employer. The two White employees were fired while the Black employee was retained. In the first big reverse discrimination case, the Court decided that Title VII is not limited to discrimination against minority persons, but includes discriminatory actions against majority persons as well.
If the DHS is really so wildly incompetent (or willfully blinded by P.C. nonsense, the jury's still out at this point) as to allow unapologetic and potentially dangerous radicals amongst their own ranks, what possible chance can they really be said to have when it comes to thwarting the operations of more organized groups?
This incident simply doesn't speak well for the agency's viability as a deterrent to potential terrorist threats.
