WGN Chicago (via cable TV) was at O’Hare Airport to report on the We Won’t Fly Opt Out (of the body scanners) Day.
And ohhhh it was soooo drippy “SWEET” of a news report.
The young female reporter was almost GIDDY at how WELL everything was going, that there were…
–NO PROTESTORS AT ALL,
–NO ONE HOLDING SIGNS,
–FLIGHTS ARE ON TIME,
–EVERYTHING GOING Sooooo Smooth & Fast that the passengers were all saying, “We wish it was like this EVERY DAY!”
The camera zoomed in on a big burly scanner guy in blue shirt with big smile showing his pearly whites.
They quickly interviewed 3-4 passengers (all young, 20’s-30’s) who all basically said the SAME THING,
–“No problem! It’s for America!”
–“The opt out protest is dumb, they are taking things too far,”
–“I didn’t find the pat down offensive AT ALL,” etc. etc.
THEN!! They had an EIGHT-months pregnant lady get the pat down while being filmed as she described every minute DETAIL as they touched ALL her body parts…
“My big belly”
(Yes, she & the News actually said crotch! I was shocked!
AND IT WAS WONDERFUL! NO PROBLEM AT ALL!!! she said.
If all that wasn’t pathetic enough…
THEN!! They said “YOU MAY BE SPREADING GERMS” if you choose to opt out & get the pat down!
(Unbelievable! I would exclaim, “Who WRITES this stuff?” but we already know!)
It seems there are no rules for the friskers to CHANGE their blue pat down GLOVES. So after they frisk you, they wear the same gloves to pat down the NEXT person. So BEWARE NOW! GERMS GERMS GERMS!
At that point I had to mute the TV. I couldn’t stomach any more of it, even though the next segment was going to be a psychologist to advise how to prepare your child for being frisked!
2. Nobody has a problem with it.
3. Not even pregnant ladies with huge bellies.
4. Nobody is uncomfortable about it.
5. Young people love it.
6. It’s for America vs. The Boogeyman, you know!
7. Things go So Well, So Fast, So Smooth if you just fall in line & do as you’re told!
8. Any one who objects is dumb & taking things too far.
9. Opting out of the scanner means you may CATCH GERMS from the gloves!
10. Kill two birds with one stone (fake germ scare combined with sheeplike compliance).
11. The Opt Out Day was a total failure & flop.
THAT’s the police state message you are supposed to swallow, hook line & sinker!
