One of the most significant differences we note from our Mapping Analysis
is the tendency of the press to downplay the representation of the Irish as a whole as a threat, especially when compared with the tendency to magnify and extend the perceived threat posed by Muslims to entire communities. We found that Muslims were homogenized as a cultural and religious Other outside Britishness. Whereas, the Irish/IRA tend to be homogenized as a threat to British institutions and the British State.
While political actors rarely if ever made speeches explicitly relating to Catholicism when addressing the IRA bombing campaign in Britain, since the 1990s there were frequent and open mentions of Islam and Muslims under New Labour. This shows both an attempt to extend the parameters of what was problematized within New Labour’s ‘project’ of social cohesion, and a shift in public perceptions of terrorism. The IRA had come to be understood and fought as a domestic problem, whereas so-called Islamist terrorism came to be framed ontologically as an attack on globally shared liberal values and on British society.
A retired special education teacher on his way to a wedding in Orlando, Fla., said he was left humiliated, crying and covered with his own urine after an enhanced pat-down by TSA officers recently at Detroit Metropolitan Airport.
This is more of Obama’s degradation of the U.S.A.

YOU are the fearful one. You fear your liberties are being taken away because you think you have a right to board someone else's aircraft freely
OK genius the aircraft are privately owned by the airline so the federal government is violating their right to be secure in their property. Do you really think the Airlines would choose to put people through this nonsense if they had a choice since they are near bankrupts because of it?... Sigh!
Yea we really need security at the airports while millions come across our southern border yearly unchecked... Sigh!
I am not the one fearing my liberties are being taken away, because they aren't.
Sigh again!.. No one is more enslaved then he who thinks he is free when he is not. There is not much you can do in this country anymore without permission from and being extorted by some government agency.
But hey stupid is as stupid does...
And that quote you provided, my dad loves. I laugh, though, cause I know he is enslaved by money. It's funny how you say you can't do anything in this country anymore without permission. Really, cause I've never, ever had to ask permission for almost everything I do every single day of my life. I do not fear the government is trying to take our rights by putting security in airports. I bet if they really wanted to take our rights, they would actually invade our houses, truly violating the 4th. But of course, you live in fear, and are blinded by it.
