You protect them, nurture them, and treat them as the valuable treasures they are. You teach them that their body is their own, and no one has a right to touch it.
No one but the government, that is.
Your precious, sweet, wholesome daughters that you you’ve vowed to protect can now be mauled by the government simply because they want to get on an airplane and fly.
We teach our daughters that their bodies are precious and that no boy has a right to see them naked just because he asks.
But, the government, they can see them naked, and it’s okay.
Your precious daughters, whose cell phones you check, and facebook you monitor, to protect them from sexual predators, can now be viewed naked by a random TSA agent.
But it’s not sexual assault because the government is doing it. And if you’re a good leftist, you don’t see anything wrong with that.
The woman who, in public, was ordered to remove her prosethetic breast — that’s someone’s daughter, a breast cancer survivor.
The woman who was handcuffed to a chair, after being randomly chosen to be scanned, that’s someone’s American daughter.
Ella Swift, who was singled out for a search simply because she was wearing a skirt, and was searched so roughly that she was lifted off her heels–she’s a citizen of the United States of America. And someone’s daughter. By the time she got to her plane, all she wanted to do was cry. “I was in pain for about an hour afterwards. It just felt excessive and unnecessary.”
When will America’s mothers and fathers stand up and protect their daughters?
Who will protect them from the sexual assault that occured to Erin?
She did not tell me that she was going to touch my buttocks, or reach forward to my vagina area.
She then moved in front of my and touched the top and underneath portions of both of my breasts.
She did not tell me that she was going to touch my breasts.
She then felt around my waist. She then moved to the bottoms of my legs.
She then felt my inner thighs and my vagina area, touching both of my labia.
She did not tell me that she was going to touch my vagina area or my labia.
Erin was traveling alone with her baby:
“I stood there, an American citizen, a mom traveling with a baby with special needs formula, sexually assaulted by a government official. I began shaking and felt completely violated, abused and assaulted by the TSA agent. I shook for several hours, and woke up the next day shaking.”
A November 16, 2010 exclusive (to subscribers) Wayne Madsen Report asserts:
“There are reports from across the nation of invasive pat down searches involving male TSA screeners forcing their hands into the crotches of male passengers, fondling their penises and testicles, and even putting their fingers in rectums. As far as women passengers are concerned, female screeners have fondled the breasts of women and placed their fingers into the vaginas of passengers, including underage teen girls, elderly women, and even a nun.”
America’s daughters and sons have done nothing to deserve being treated like chattle. If this continues–the terrorists have won.
This is not the type of so-called freedom I want my children to pass down to their daughters and sons. Besides the physical violation, unlawful TSA searches are desensitizing citizens against violations of liberty. When it becomes the norm for our children to be searched/violated in an airport, won’t it soon become the norm to be searched in the street? Will there be anyone left to speak up for the 4th ammendment?
I’m a daughter of the American Revolution, the Civil War and the Korean War. This is not the kind of freedom my forefathers fought for.
This is not the kind of freedom our soldiers fight for today.
