The degradation must stop

Lee DeCovnick
The TSA literally put their blue-gloved hands down my pants Sunday.  I was patted, pawed and squeezed as if I were a high school homecoming queen on her third date with the star quarterback. It was a humiliating, degrading and an unacceptable invasion by this government into my private affairs. This was after government x-ray machines poured unwanted x-rays though my body. No warning, no explanation, no alternatives offered. All just to board a plane to come home.

And who the hell thinks our Constitution allows a government employee to touch my wife on her blouse like that? If that smirking grope occurred in any other public venue, the pervert would wake up in the prisoner ward of the hospital, requiring a feeding tube, and a good deal of plastic surgery. Where the hell are all the men in this country? Why aren't they protecting their wives and loved ones?  For heaven's sake, we teach three year olds that their bodies are their own and their privates are private. Who in hell changed the rules?

The American government is no longer acting as guardian of our freedoms; rather they have become our jailers. This Administration's perverted behavior toward its own citizens has been purposely allowed to flourish, all in the name of preserving political correctness in enemy identification.

Why is this failure to discern between the enemy and the people who need protection from the enemy occurring? Because our political, social and MSM institutions have been thoroughly corrupted by progressive liberalism. The Marxist/ Socialists intent is to control the citizenry through humiliation, degrading perversions of personal privacy, and the insidious decoupling of our Constitutional rights from our basic freedoms of choice in travel, medicine, food, housing and information.

Why must we demand to profile Muslims men between 18 and 50 years old before they get onto an airplane? Who else on the planet has been hijacking planes and committing untold numbers of terrorist acts around the globe for the past 40 years?  Do the bureaucratic zombies responsible for this insanity honestly believe that 70 year old nuns, toddlers, teenage musicians, priests, English teachers, Orthodox rabbis, postal inspectors, insurance salesman from Wisconsin, astronomers, and landscape architects are in the same high risk category as male Muslims?  Or is this Kabuki theater that masquerades as effective security really what Congress intended: just another government jobs program for TSA agents and their unions?

Where is the empirical evidence that X-rays and aggressive pat downs are more effective then metal detectors and wanding? We could at least pretend to believe that metal detectors were for our protection. These new aggressive practices cross the bright line between guarding our freedoms and government in the role of our jailers.

Make no mistake, these direct physical assaults on American citizens flow directly from Obama's increasingly dysfunctional narcissism.  This carefully crafted (post election) lab experiment has a dual purpose. American air travelers, primarily white and upper middle class, are targeted by the Soros/Obama thugocracy for collective punishment stemming from their overwhelming rejection of his socialist redistributive policies in the midterm elections. The second part of this Orwellian test is to determine exactly how far Americans are willing to surrender their personal freedoms and privacy in name of safety and security. 

Obama and his ideological stooges (those shadow government czars) are in a desperate panic to start cooking us frogs before we jump out of the pot, turn off the stove and restore order to the kitchen. We are in a deadly serious race for our freedoms and our country. They have a two-year head start. We must continue to roll back this madness, and to excise the people who are willing to compromise our Constitutional freedoms.
