House Panel to TSA: Stop Patting Down Beyonce “She’s not going to blow a plane up”

It seems that no bridge is too far for the Transport Security Authority (TSA), as they officially conform to the cult of sycophantic celebrity worship which has plagued our once great egalitarian western culture. It seems that some Americans are more deserving of freedom and liberty than others.
Let’s put this new TSA social caste system to the test…
As a system of control, the bedrock of it’s authority was first derived from the concept of collective safety, as it vowed to treat ‘everyone the same’ in their mission to protect Americans from a grave and present terror threat.
But according to Rep. Mike Rogers (R-AL), head of the House Homeland Security Transportation Subcommittee, this is no longer the case. Rogers says, “There are certain people that are just so well-known that you’ve just got to use your common sense.”
“There’s certain people that are so well known, you just have to use common sense because if you start patting them down, people are gonna say ‘they’re patt’in down Beyonce‘, she’s not gonna blow a plane up,” explains Rogers.
According to a Los Angeles Times article earlier this month, the esteemed House Committee also included others in this esteemed list of ‘recognizable’ public figures who are now deserving of a free pass, like Donald Rumsfeld and wanted international war criminal Henry Kissinger. This, they believe will ‘help to fix the TSA’s poor public image’.
We should really ask the question then: would Jeff Lewis qualify as a non-risk ‘celebrity’ according to the House Committee’s new-found TSA standards of social compartmentalization?
Jeff Lewis is nationally known a motivational speaker who travels around the country to share his inspiring story to Americans. Still however, even a quadruple amputee such as Arizona resident Jeff Lewis, isroutinely stopped by the TSA, so that they can swab his artificial limbs for explosives. Take a look for yourself…
The case of Jeff Lewis is an extreme one, but he really is the canary in the coalmine in terms of determining the basic concept … that you are innocent until proven guilty. A so-called ‘free pass’ with the TSA means that your basic First Amendment Rights have been observed and preserved. For our elected officials to only extend those rights to celebrities and political insiders only, should be seen as an act of war against Americans.
The TSA claim that complaints filed against the agency are rare and in decline, according to U.S. Department of Homeland Security records, but it should also be common sense to understand that most Americans will not complain because:
1. They will not lodge a complaint on site for fear of missing their travel appointments, and leave any complaints dead there.
2. Most Americans will not complain for fear of being included on an already million-person strong ‘no-fly’ list.
There are signs of progress, but in the end, it will be impossible to measure. The TSA Administrator who testified to the House panel, John Pistole, claims the TSA has implemented less-intrusive screening methods for certain customers… including a recent decision to allow passengers 75 and older to leave their shoes and outerwear on as they pass through security.
That’s progress, according to the TSA.
Moral of the story: If you are not as famous as Beyonce, a globalist operator, or political insider, you are nobody. So it’s important now to remember that you are nobody and that indeed, flying is a privilege – not a right.
In the face of such tyranny in America, we cry out, “We are all celebrities now!”
