When the TSA Strip Searches a Little Boy ...

Topics: Political News and commentaries

When Barack Obama and his TSA say i's OK to strip search and grope little boys, isn't it time for the people and their representatives in Congress to say ENOUGH IS ENOUGH (before voting the narcissistic SOB out of office in 2012)!

From lukemtait, who posted the video at YouTube:

Lets get the facts straight first. Before the video started the boy went through a metal detector and didn't set it off but was selected for a pat down. The boy was shy so the TSA couldn't complete the full pat on the young boy. The father tried several times to just hold the boys arms out for the TSA agent but i guess it didn't end up being enough for the guy. I was about 30 ft away so i couldn't hear their conversation if there was any. The enraged father pulled his son shirt off and gave it to the TSA agent to search, thats when this video begins.
Like Robert Spencer has pointed out and we have previously discussed, while we're standing there waiting with our shoes in a plastic bin (and having our junk groped, and our wives and children fondled by strangers, and/or getting blasted with radiation), let's not forget why so many security procedures have come into being in the first place. Because of one reason and one reason only: Islamic jihadists (not Baptists, Presbyterians, Catholics, Jews, Buddhists, Hindus, athiests, etc.) keep trying to bring down our planes, more and more with explosives concealed on their bodies. Yet, as Charles Krauthammer aptly notes, (the people now in control of our government) refuse to profile because people are too cowed to even question the absurd taboo against profiling - when the profile of the airline attacker is narrow, concrete, uniquely definable and universally known.
.... Nowhere do more people meekly acquiesce to more useless inconvenience and needless indignity for less purpose. Wizened seniors strain to untie their shoes; beltless salesmen struggle comically to hold up their pants; 3-year-olds scream while being searched insanely for explosives - when everyone, everyone, knows that none of these people is a threat to anyone.


.... This has nothing to do with safety - 95 percent of these inspections, searches, shoe removals and pat-downs are ridiculously unnecessary. The only reason we continue to do this is that people are too cowed to even question the absurd taboo against profiling - when the profile of the airline attacker is narrow, concrete, uniquely definable and universally known. So instead of seeking out terrorists, we seek out tubes of gel in stroller pouches.

Shouldn't strip searching children have taken us to the point at which all of us stand up for ourselves and demand a stop to this insanity? Have we truly become a nation of sheep who, like Krauthammer suggests, meekly acquiesce to more useless inconvenience and needless indignity for less purpose?
