In the incredible, ongoing TSA saga, I've been waiting to hear from two particular entities on the left side of the political spectrum: one is Glenn Greenwald at Salon.com, a constitutional attorney who in the past never failed to defend the rights of individuals against the tyranny of the state; the other is the feminists.
Glenn Greenwald finally spoke out against two despicable writers at The Nation magazine, in the article titled "Anatomy of a journalistic smear".
And I finally heard from the other entity, feminists, or at least I think that what they want to pass themselves as such. Their view is fully expressed in the video clip below, which I found in the post by Thomas DiLorenzo at LRC Blog. This particular group of middle-aged women as you see in the clip below includes several who walked out of the TV set over the Muslim terrorist remark by Bill O'Reilly.
Do they defend women and men who suffered sexual abuse in the past and who refuse naked scanning and highly intrusive patdowns? Hell no.
Are they indignant that the TSA had a woman scanned and then patted down in the groin because she had a sanitary napkin on? Hell no.
Instead, they loudly pronounce people who refuse the scan and end up in the heavy patdown as terrorists! Why? In their feminine logic (oxymoron, I know), these people, by refusing the scan, are tying up the valuable TSA resource by forcing the TSA to individually pat them down, while some real terrorists may snuck by them unnoticed.
What's the big deal, they all say.
It is by far the most disgusting video I've seen so far on the topic.
If it is the Democratic government doing the molestation, particularly under the charming (to them at least) black president, it's all fine and dandy to them. This particular feminist lawyer who claims to fight "on behalf of victims whose rights have been violated" announced she thoroughly enjoyed the heavy patdown.
Do you see the message they are sending to the rest of us? If we are as sophisticated, educated as they are, we should be enjoying the sexual abuse. Just enjoy the occasion.
Much like we've been pushed to appreciate abstract paintings (now we know the CIA was behind the promotion), twelve-tone and atonal music ("because all notes are created equal"; and this was another CIA job), which to many unsophisticated people including myself look and sound like a crap.
