TSA: Political Correctness Comes Home to Roost

PC and bureaucratic pig-headedness demand we continue to ignore time-tested and common sense solutions to airport security already used by the Israelis:

Airport “Israelification”

“It is mindboggling for us Israelis to look at what happens in North America, because we went through this 50 years ago,” said Rafi Sela, the president of AR Challenges, a global transportation security consultancy. He’s worked with the RCMP, the U.S. Navy Seals and airports around the world.

“Israelis, unlike Canadians and Americans, don’t take s— from anybody. When the security agency in Israel (the ISA) started to tighten security and we had to wait in line for — not for hours — but 30 or 40 minutes, all hell broke loose here. We said, ‘We’re not going to do this. You’re going to find a way that will take care of security without touching the efficiency of the airport.”

That, in a nutshell is “Israelification” – a system that protects life and limb without annoying you to death.

You don’t have to replace anything. You have to add just a little bit — technology, training. But you have to completely change the way you go about doing airport security. And that is something that the bureaucrats have a problem with. They are very well enclosed in their own concept.”


Instead, Mohamedanism and the Left once again converge in this perfect storm of political correctness where EVERYBODY is frisked, patted, probed and scanned so that those most likely to bomb a plane (guess who) not be profiled.  Here passengers are body slammed– yes, body slammed– to the ground if they don’t remove their nipple rings and prosthetic limbs, or are covered in urine when their colostomy bags are torn.  Just another reason why Islam and the Left are such a scourge on Western civilization.

Meanwhile, even though we are more than two years into the Age of Obama, the loonie commenters at the Huffington Post are still blaming “Booosh” for this madness.  You see, Bush “invented” the terrorist threat, and Obama is just falling for it. Unreal.

UPDATE: Here, the longest line you have ever seen at an airport.

  1. TSA claims that they randomly select passengers for the full-body scanners. I don’t quite believe that since we have yet to hear about an overtly Muslim man or a Muslim woman wearing a hijab being screened by the scanner or having the enhanced pat-down.

    I assume that CAIR would have already had the press conference if one had actually happened.

    Perhaps TSA is profiling but just to select who to NOT screen.
