Palin On Muslim Profiling: ‘I’m All For It’

On Hannity last night, former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin said she’s “all for” profiling Muslims if it saves “innocent American lives.”

Speaking about the Fort Hood shooting, she said there were “massive warning flags that were missed all over the place” because of a “fear of being politically incorrect.”

“Profiling” the alleged shooter, she said, would have meant investigating the “simple things, like looking at his business card that had the secret code word for who it actually was” he was working for.

Watch:

Late update: This wasn’t a one-off remark. Palin also lauded the idea of racial or religious profiling in an interview with the Weekly Standard.

“I say, profile away,” she said.
