Trump Spokesthug Kellyanne Conway thinks that its silly for her to go not to breeze through airport checkpoints because she doesn’t look like a terrorist. (Translation: White people are never terrorists)
Not so much:
Maybe it is because I am part Irish, or because I am flying to Dublin this week to present at the Trinity Economic Forum, but Kellyanne Conway’s claim that though she does not “resemble” any “terrorist,” she has to go through security checks at airports, stunned me. Given her name and looks, that struck me as a bizarre statement. Surely, she must “resemble” some of the IRA terrorists. It took me four minutes of research to find an Irish terrorist that she resembles.
This is a photo of Conway.
Now, we all know what she means when she says that she does not “resemble” a terrorist – she does not look like her origins were the Middle East. She looks like her family origins were in Northern Europe. (Yes, I know, we all share African origins.) Her family name was “Fitzpatrick” prior to her marriage. Her dad was Irish and her mom Italian. She went to Catholic schools.
It is no surprise, therefore, that she closely resembles terrorists. Conway (nee Fitzpatrick), meet the famous Irish terrorist Dolours Price who grew up attending Catholic schools in Belfast – and helped blow up Old Bailey.
I dunno ……… I think that Ms. Conway does resemble a bone fide terrorist, and a particularly nasty one (she also facilitated an IRA hit on a mother of 10) at that.
Note to self: Perhaps Going to Catholic School should put people on a DHS watch list. (Not really)
