The EXCUSE used to justify the TSA's airport porno-scanners and sexual assaults is radical Islam. Well, I call bull. Because that story simply doesn't fit with reality.
We're told radical Islam "hates our freedom." OK, then why has our own government been going out of its way to steal our freedoms since 9/11? Who hates our freedom again?
If radical Islam really hated our freedom, the smartest thing to do would be to expand our freedom, not limit it. Because contrary to what Michelle Malkin thinks, ALL liberty is essential. Liberty is not qualified.
They tell us we're at war with terrorists. Really? Because if we were, Osama bin Laden would be dead, instead of livin' large in Pakistan like he is today. They're lying to you. It's all bull.
There is no War on Terrorism. American lives are being lost and American treasure is being spent, for the sole purpose of "immanentizing the global eschaton," while gaining power and control over your lives.
Same goes for Homeland Security and the Transportation Security Administration. They aren't designed to keep you safe from terrorists. Their sole purpose is to gain power and control over your lives.
At least the Japanese are having fun at our expense.
H/T - Opting Out.
All war is bull.
Don't think so? Think again ... America's "ally" in WWII was communist Joseph Stalin, one of the most brutal mass murderers in all of history. Stalin killed more people than Hitler. By definition, a brutal dictator is not an ally of free people. We're old that we defeated fascism in WWII too, yet FDR used the war as an excuse to bring fascism to the United States.
Same with the Cold War. We're told we defeated communism. But if we really did, tell me why today's America looks just like yesterday's USSR?
Naturally, many Americans will tell themselves that the machines are really not all that bad and justify their decision to submit to this invasive and Orwellian system by thinking about how disappointed Grandma will be if she doesn't see the grandkids at Thanksgiving or how upset Aunt Martha will be if Billy and Susie don't come for Christmas. It's just this one brick, after all, so why not just go along to get along?
Consider this: "The Transportation Security Administration" is responsible for security in all modes of transportation. If Americans submit like stupid sheep to this procedure, there can be little doubt that the technology will be adapted over time for use in trains, buses and perhaps even automobiles, all in the name of national security. And once it becomes ubiquitous throughout the various modes of modern transportation, it will also replace the millions of metal detectors and security cameras that are installed in so many buildings and public places.
At which point, the totalitarian Panopticon of which technocratic fascists have long dreamed will be erected over the "Land of the Formerly Free and the Home of the Erstwhile Brave."
