Totalitarian L.A. Times

John Seiler:

All of America is aghast that the TSA goons at airports are molesting passengers, even nuns and children; or forcing passengers to pass through irradiating porno machines that take, and store, nude pictures of the victims, while dosing them with dangerous radiation.

Not the Totalitarian L.A. Times. Its editorial begins with a Soviet command in the title:

Shut up and be scanned

The airport security devices may be intrusive, but they’re also a necessary evil.

Would you rather pose for a nude photograph or be groped by a federal employee? To hear many fliers these days, those are the only two choices for air passengers as the Transportation Security Administration installs full-body scanners at airports and introduces a more invasive pat-down technique that some have likened to sexual molestation. We’re not wild about the new methods either, but they’re a necessary evil in the era of suicide bombers who board planes with chemical explosives in their underwear.

Jawohol, Mein Führer!

Actually, what should be done is to abolish the TSA, an unconstitutional agency to begin with, and let the airlines themselves take care of security. They have every reason to protect their passengers in a reasonable manner without hiring perverts to grope children.

By the way, since the L.A. Times likes and trusts government so much, in its financial agony, why doesn’t it gift itself to the federal government? As an official government paper, it couldn’t possibly by more of an apologist for government tyranny than it already is.

Oh, and this just in on the TSA’s groping perverts that the Totalitarian L.A. Times defends:

The TSA’s invasive new screening measures include officers literally putting their hands down people’s pants if they are wearing baggy clothing in a shocking new elevation of groping procedures that have stoked a nationwide revolt against privacy-busting airport security measures.
