Bill O’Reilly made yet another appearance on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart.
During the show, Jon Stewart said this:
“Just to be lumped in with people based solely on one factor is unfair … It’d be like let’s say somebody committed an act of terror and we took their whole religion and we lumped them all in for special singling out.“
O’Reilly tried to break the argument. I think he failed.
Let me give it a try.
If targeting Muslims for extra scrutiny because of the acts of terrorism committed in the name of Islam is wrong, then isn’t making every American get a background check before buying a gun wrong too?
I mean, just to be lumped in with people based solely on one factor is unfair, right? Is that a universal, or is it just if Muslims?
Stewart was surely against gun control, right?
In Stewart’s world, there’s nothing wrong with making everyone in the country jump through extra hoops based on the actions of a few, but it’s wrong to submit Muslims to a little extra attention based on all the acts of terror committed in the name of Allah.
Therefore, I made this:
If it’s wrong to profile Muslims, then it’s wrong to profile gun owners.
