So, Senator Obama, when did we start rounding up Arab-American families?
Terrifyingly, the ad below was thought to be a *good* idea.

Were you doing that Sliders dimension-hopping fanfic/cosplay thing again?
(Originally via Riehl World View, although the comments section gave me pause.)
Anyway, when did we start doing this? In fact, why did we start doing this? Even if the current Presidential administration actually had taken the rather insensitive and bigoted assumption that Arab = Islamist (note suffix) terrorist/terrorist sympathizer (which, might I note, is a very difficult charge to make against the Bush administration while still keeping a straight face, much to the disappointment of various and sundry progressive masochism fetishists), it remains true that the vast majority of Arab-Americans are not Muslims, and that the vast majority of American Muslims are not Arabs. I somehow doubt that the government can be simultaneously dumb enough to carry out a boneheaded policy of rounding up Arab-American families, while at the same time being clever enough to simultaneously keep it off of the nightly news and not manage to round up Maronites by mistake.
Look them up, Senator. Then explain the difference to your acolytes. It apparently doesn't register with them unless you say it.
