Skip to comments.Racist or Reality? Seattle Congressman Wants FBI Terrorists Ad Pulled
Posted on 06/21/2013 11:52:45 AM PDT by nickcarraway
In the global war on terror, information is everything.
A single tip from the public can save countless lives. A terrorist could be right in front of your own face. Thats why the FBI rolled out a new ad campaign on billboards and buses. It shows the faces of 16 of the world's most wanted terrorists.
Some, however, say they're being depicted in a less that flattering light.
You look at the pictures, they're all one color of folks, said Congressman Jim McDermott of Seattle. McDermott has asked the FBI to pull the ads, calling them racist because there are no white people.
Terrorists come in all shapes and sizes. If you're gonna talk about terrorists, then dont just talk about people with brown skin, he said. How many white faces were there on there?
Truth be told, there is at least one. His name is Omar Hammami. The FBI lists him as a 29 year old native of Alabama, but its hard to tell behind the beard and head wrap. The ad also shows three men of Asian descent. Of the 32 people on the FBI's most wanted terrorist list, only six are not of Middle Eastern origin.
Some say the poster isn't racist. It's reality.
If these are the faces of terrorism, you have to go with what the truth is, said Dale Cavanaugh after seeing the ad. It's too bad that it comes across as racist.
McDermott says he hasn't gotten a response from the FBI about his request to pull the ads. Calls from KING 5 to the agency were not returned Thursday.
“Baghdad” Jim McDermott is a long time supporter of islamic terrorists.
Sometimes - the truth hurts. That’s real. Politically correct liberals can’t handle the truth.
Keep in mind that this is the same scumbag who blames tea party targeting by the IRS on the tea partiers.
F him. He is typical of many left wing lunatics.
99% of what Liberals and people of color call “racist” is actually reality. As time goes by and internet reporters peel away the false narratives the propagandist media has constructed, more and more people will become race realists and will no longer be scared away by the racist label that Liberals affix to people to silence debate.
I’m sick of these liberal bastards. Panties in a wad CONSTANTLY over stupid things like “how many of a race” do you show for this crime or that, whether it’s actual people or representing the whole.
These bastards really need to get out and make their own damn country. I’m sick of them.
Jim McDermott is a criminal. last guy anyone would hire to do an ethnographic workup on a bunch of people.
Truth doesn’t advance their agenda.
Liberals believe terrorism is a political issue. People like McDermott want white males listed who are TP terrorists. For him Muslims are devout religious believers who are offended by Christians and Jews. Color him mad as a hatter.
The problem is us crackers just are not “Represent’n” in the world of crime.
Satan vs the human race, racist!
Islame Delenda Est.
Typical pig McDermott.
He’s still alive? When’s the Navy gonna christen his namesake ship?
McDermott’s goofy, commie lib antics are getting old and tiresome. Do America a favor Jimmy. Move to Baghdad with your buddies.
McDermott continues to be a total utterly stupid @zzhole. His voters must be @zzholes too.
30/32 = 93.75%
Not to profile is stupid. People should identify Muslims as more likely to be be terrorists as that is the reality.
His voters are the urban citizens of Seattle. He regularly wins with about 80% of the vote, and he wins because he accurately reflects the values of his district.
Actually, the FBI’s Most Wanted Terrorist list is sexist.
Only one woman, which means 29 out of 30 are men despite 50% of the world’s population being female.
I’m am seriously offended. Who do I sue?
Accckk. Reading too fast. Make that 31 out of 32 are male.
They hold US security hostage to their political demands.
ALL COMMITTED BY LUTHERANS!
I'd say that this guy has a good point.
McDermott took funds from a Saddam ally....’nuff said

A few questions.
Are these people NOT the 16 most wanted terrorists in the world?
Is this man suggesting that more white folks become terrorist so that they can replace some people of color?
Is this man a total mental midget?
Is this man a total mental midget?
It IS Jim McDermott we're talking about here, is it not? And you have to ask this question? Next to Jim McDermott a mental midget would seem a giant.
That's the fact, but within his party he doesn't really stand out against Shirley Jackson Lee, Nancy Pelosi, Debbie Wasserman Shultz, Maxine Waters, Barbara Lee, Henry Waxman, Gerald Nadler and so many more i can't name them all. Mental midgets all.
Dokka Umarov is a white Chechen. And a lot of the Arabs look pretty white to me.
Baghdad Jim doesn’t want to lose any more of his constituency.
#23 — thank you!
I was just going to post, “Hey Jimbo, anytime you want to add your fat pasty commie mug to the list, be my guest, you filthy scum-covered traitor!”
