‘My daughter’s on the no-fly list’ wr…

‘My daughter’s on the no-fly list’ writes Chris Kelly. She’s 12 years old.

So I should hate the No Fly List. Besides the personal inconvenience, it runs counter to a solid third of the Bill of Rights. But I’m conflicted. Because I have a pretty good idea why my daughter’s on the list. It’s because she has the same name as this guy:


In 1993 this IRA thug walked into a fish shop in Belfast with a bomb that went off prematurely (of course) injuring 57 people, including a 79-year-old woman and two two-year-old boys. It also killed ten people, including a thirteen-year-old girl named Leanne Baird, and her little sister, Michelle, seven. Just like Jesus would have wanted.

But I have some disappointing news for Mike Gallagher [radio host who recently said all people with the following names should get profiled]: The killer’s name isn’t Abdul or Ahmed or Mohammed. It’s Sean Kelly.

Which is why America has to wake up, get serious about terrorism, and racially profile all Irish Catholics. Because you never know where they’ll strike next with their religion of hate. Wait, that can’t be right.

Kelly also coins a new term: “Varadarajan Stoicism” – as in Tunku Varadarajan, who recently attempted to popularize the phrase “going Muslim.”
