Stepped-up security screening at airports in the wake of foiled terrorism plots has provoked an outcry from airline pilots and travelers, including parents of children who say they are too intrusive. (Reuters)
Since the inception of the porn scanners at our airports the Freedom Movement at large has been up in arms about it; blogging, commenting, and making the case for the unconstitutionality, backwardness and ineffectiveness of such intrusive electronic searches and intimate pat downs.
Recently, pilot Michael Roberts posted a letter at LewRockwell.com “Pilot to TSA: No Groping Me and NO Naked Photos“” which went on to be picked up by the Main Stream Media and became viral, inspiring a larger wave of indignant articles from the MSM and the Freedom Movement. Michael also inspired the Allied Pilot Association to join the protest.
Dave Bates -Allied Pilot Association “Backscatter AIT devices now being deployed produce ionizing radiation, which could be harmful to your health,” ”Requiring pilots to go through the AIT [naked body scanner] means additional radiation exposure. I share our pilots’ concerns about this additional radiation exposure and plan to recommend that our pilots refrain from going through the AIT. We already experience significantly higher radiation exposure than most other occupations, and there is mounting evidence of higher-than-average cancer rates as a consequence.”
The Grassroots has started many initiatives to boycott the travel industry and protest the Porn Scanners. The DailyPaul.com, as usual, has been a meeting place for activist to promote their efforts, currently promoting “National Naked Opt-Out Day Nov. 24,” from optoutday.com.
Gigi Bowman of Liberty-Candidates.org and Save Long Island is currently organizing the protest at Kennedy Airport in NYC on National Opt-Out Day on Nov 24, in addition to collaborating with the Liberty Candidates to make the TSA, and the threats to the 4th Amendment, a priority on their next run, which they are already strategizing for.
The Tea Party local forums and websites are starting to light up with activity preparing the protests at their airports. The discussions are full of mentions of the 4th Amendment and how important it is for the States to regain their rights in securing their transportation.
Back in 2006 pro-Liberty think tank, Mises.org, was already exposing the TSA as an “Stalinist Creation” by then President Bush, and with articles like “The Economics of Flying”
