TSA Loudspeakers Threaten Travelers With Arrest For Joking About Security

While traveling through George Bush Intercontinental Airport in Houston, Matt Miller heard a security announcement repeatedly aired on the airport intercom that left him disturbed.

“You are also reminded that any inappropriate remarks or jokes concerning security may result in your arrest,” the loudspeaker message states.

These new loudspeaker warnings remind us that the TSA continues to excel at indoctrinating Americans to be well-behaved prisoners via obedience training – reminding them that they can be disappeared if they dare speak out of turn, even in a humorous way.

This is a totally unlawful and illegitimate violation of the First Amendment and is obviously designed to intimidate travelers and stop them from complaining about aggressive grope downs which in some cases involve TSA workers touching travelers’ genitals.

The message is clear – grovel and enjoy your genitals being groped or face arrest.

The prospect of travelers cracking jokes about airport security procedures is by no means unlikely given the increasing absurdity of the policies being enforced by the TSA.

Generally speaking, the American people have become so weak, gullible, and stupid, that they don't realize their freedom and liberty is being slowly and gradually taken away from them. Perhaps, when facebook and twitter are shut down, they will then notice. Perhaps.

How many would be terrorists have been caught at the gates by TSA ?

Or indeed in any western airport. Serious terrorist/s could avoid all these so-called airport security procedures. Dangerous terrorists could only be caught or traced by other "intelligence".

Government intelligence - at an all time low.

I don't think they are referring to jokes about their procedures. They probably are referring to comments about bombs, guns, terrorism etc which will flag you as a possible threat. Personally, I think it would be foolish to make such comments in an area where security is tasked with preventing another 9/11 type incident. People have paid to for a safe flight to their destination and probably don't like being frightened by their fellow passengers making stupid comments. Someone perceived as a threat will obviously not be allowed to board and the signs are merely informing you of that fact.

If preventing terrorists are the goals of the TSA they are incompetent morons. If culling the American populace into accepting unnecessary fascism is their goal they are wildly successful. Personally, I would throw a BBQ and do a jig if a bus of them drove off a cliff or got hit by a meteor.

Yeah like terrorists would draw attention to themselves by openly mentioning or joking about bombs or "security". While humor about negative situations is supposed to relax people not make them more nervous.

Do not wash for six weeks before flying. Go to lots of saunas and do a lot of running. Do not change underwear or socks. Insist on a body search at the airport. Be very friendly and polite. You may also find the seats next to you become mysteriously vacant early on in the flight. See, nothing but benefits! Not sure if you'll be charged excess baggage for your personal cloud of flies, though.

Welcome to the Nazi party that is the democrat machine people!

No decent is allowed in the obamanation unless approved by the party!

"The Party seeks power entirely for its own sake. We are not interested in the good of others; we are interested solely in power. . . . Power is not a means; it is an end . . . not power over things, but over men. . . . In our world there will be no emotions except fear, rage, triumph, and self-abasement. . . . There will be no loyalty, except loyalty toward the Party. There will be no love, except the love of Big Brother. . . . Always, at every moment, there will be the thrill of victory, the sensation of trampling on an enemy who is helpless. If you want a picture of the future, imagine a boot stamping on a human face forever."

-George Orwell, 1984
