Opt out! TSA goons grope refusenik passengers

With the holiday travel season just a week away, DHS and the TSA have stepped up their efforts to make airline travel as uncomfortable, intrusive and inconvenient as possible – for everyone including pilots and flight attendants. There is a big push to install full body scanners at all major airports. These are the devices which take a high resolution snapshot using X-Ray or Millimeter Wave technology. As you can see from the above picture, they leave little to the imagination, essentially taking a nude picture. Although the TSA claims that they cannot save these images, this story proves they are lying about that.

The new “safety” regs have caused a firestorm of protest from the traveling public, airline pilots, and flight attendants. The TSA says that the body scans are “voluntary” but what happens if you refuse to have nude photos taken? While shouting “Opt out,” to draw everyone’s attention, you’re hauled off for a groping session. The new rules allow for “enhanced” pat downs that include the grabbing of breasts and genitals. (story here)

The government’s aggressive new pat-down searches at airports are raising privacy concerns and dividing frequent fliers.Transportation Security Administration (TSA) security screeners last week began more aggressively patting down airline passengers as a matter of policy across the country. The agency calls it one of its several layers of security to keep travelers safe.

“Pat downs are one important tool to help TSA detect hidden and dangerous items such as explosives,” the agency says.

The new searches are done with screeners’ hands sliding over a passenger’s body. However, the searches require screeners to touch passengers’ breasts and genitals. And that’s prompting some fliers and the American Civil Liberties Union to question the policy’s intrusiveness and effectiveness.

Frequent business traveler Richard Boyd of Beverly Hills says the pat downs “serve no real purpose.”

“It’s another TSA delusion of enhancing security,” Boyd says. “It will accomplish nothing other than adding to a traveler’s frustration and time required to clear security. It should be abandoned before implemented.”

Pat-down searches are used when a passenger sets off a metal detector, chooses not to go through a “full-body” scanning machine or the machine detects something suspicious.

The new rules are also being applied to pilots and flight attendants because, you know, a pilot might pull a knife on himself and take over the plane. Huh? WTF? Needless to say, they’re not happy about it. (stories here and here)

To add insult to injury, it appears that the TSA is becoming even more aggressive as the number of “opt outs” have increased. They’re trying to punish people who refuse the nude photo scan:

Department of Homeland Insecurity chief Janet “Big Sis” Incompetano and her TSA stooge John Pistole are of course denying what everyone else is seeing with their own lying eyes (story here). They claim that nude photos and groping are necessary to prevent another “man caused disaster.”

Despite multiple reports of TSA agents groping, molesting and sexually assaulting passengers in a nationwide epidemic of abuse, a TSA.gov website claims that there are no instances of groping or even squeezing occurring at all, and that TSA agents are completely “professional” in their duties.

The denial appears on the blog.tsa.gov website, an official Transport Security Administration clearinghouse for news about the TSA and airport security.

After being asked the question, “Why are you posting about this and not about TSA’s ongoing sexual assault on travelers who don’t wish to be irradiated by untested machines run by poorly trained screening clerks?,” Bob the TSA blogger responds with the following.

“There is no fondling, squeezing, groping, or any sort of sexual assault taking place at airports. You have a professional workforce carrying out procedures they were trained to perform to keep aviation security safe.”

This claim is of course a flagrant lie designed to quell the massive backlash against invasive new airport security measures which is being led by numerous prominent travel and pilots associations.

New TSA “pat down” measures introduced at the end of last month for people who refuse the dangerous naked body scan involve TSA agents using the front of their hands and literally cupping and squeezing women’s breasts and men’s testicles. As USA Today reported last week, “The searches require screeners to touch passengers’ breasts and genitals.”

This is not airport security, it’s airport security theater. The simple fact is that every incident of airline terrorism in the last 40 years has been perpetrated by islamic males between the ages of 19 and 34. If we were really serious about security, we would adopt some or most of the tactics of Israeli security. Their approach is that “things don’t hijack planes, people do.” (more here and here) With our ridiculous PC driven regime, where the very word terrorism (or terrorist) cannot be uttered, this will never happen. No, we’ll be forced to have old ladies and little kids be groped because we don’t want to offend a muslim (who are perpetually offended by just about everything anyway).

Don’t look for this to simmer down anytime soon. There is now a website that is calling for a national Opt Out Day on November 24th. (website here) This is a perfect example for the Alliance of Non-compliance. If you will be traveling for the Holidays, prepare for chaos.

Here’s a huge roundup of stories on the situation.
