are we going to continue to pretend this isnt a sexual assault?

23 Nov

a women traveling through colorado springs was violated by tsa when she was randomly singled out for an enhanced pat down and had her vagina forcefully touched twice.

really? is this who we want to be as a nation? a nation of sheep being humiliated for a false sense of safety provided by this kubuki security theatre?

see the local news video report with interview of her.

TSA Gropes Menstruating Woman Because of Panty Liner

Good grief. It’s astonishing that people are being treated this way in this country.

But what ultimately happened is that I was subjected to search so invasive that I was left crying and dealing with memories that I thought had been dealt with years ago of prior sexual assualts. Why? Because of my flannel panty-liner. These new scans are so horrible that if you are wearing something unusual (like a piece of cloth on your panties) then you will be subjected to a search where a woman repeatedly has to check your “groin” while another woman watches on (two in my case – they were training in a new girl – awesome). So please, please, tell the ladies not to wear their liners at the airport (I didn’t even have an insert in).

She provides some biographical background:

I’m a strong, confident woman; I’m an Army vet (which is why those camo liners crack me up), I work full-time and go to graduate school full-time, I have a wonderful husband, and I don’t take any nonsense from anyone. I don’t dramatize, and I don’t exaggerate. I’m trying to give you a sense of who I am so you won’t think that this is a plea for attention, or a jumping on the bandwagon about the recent TSA proposed boycott.

Every time we hear one of these stories, John Pistole runs for the cameras and reassures us that this isn’t what is supposed to happen; that no one should be treated in this fashion or made to cry; that it shouldn’t be regarded as a common occurrence or used as the basis to judge the whole program or the TSA; that they listen and are always adjusting their policy, and that–most importantly to him–we all must put up with these “enhanced searches” to keep terrorists from bringing down airplanes. And then it happens again. Each time, he circles back around to tough-talking bluster with that asinine, barely-disguised “everyone’s a perp” mentality.

Does John Pistole strike you as a little psycho at this point?

    All this money…all this inconvenience…and they have NEVER caught one terrorist. Not one. And many TSA and Homeland Security departments have several Muslim employees that are known sympathizers of the enemy. I have never seen such poor leadership or appointees in all of my 75 years! We need to get over this brainwashed feeling of “Political Correctness!” Yes, America, we have an enemy. It is Islam. The Islamic belief system and its Sharia law is completely incompatible with our Constitution. COMPLETELY. They can NOT coexist side by side. Now, get over it… plan accordingly…profile individuals at all security checkpoints according to the race and religion of those committing terrorist acts around the world (and NOT wasting the publics time by strip searching little African-American and Caucasian boys or grandpa’s in a wheelchair or select teenage girls)… and get busy PROTECTING OUR BORDERS!!!

    the elites of our nation decided a long time ago not to address the real enemy or the real issues around security.

    and this direction where all americans are the enemy is they path they chose for us.

    I doubt it will change.
