The TSA: More Crimes, More Lies

Now the government-goons who molest little kids while claiming without a single blush that pedophilia is “proper procedure” are strip-searching grannies with the same excuse — even as they deny inflicting any such wickedness.

The latest brutality to catch the corporate media’s attention features an 84-year-old woman who divides her time between New York’s Long Island and Florida. Lenore Zimmerman wears a defibrillator, uses a walker and wheelchair, weighs less than 110 pounds and stands under 5 feet tall. She also boasts a nose for nonsense: “I really look like a terrorist,” she sarcastically told New York’s Daily News.

 

Now the government-goons who molest little kids while claiming without a single blush that pedophilia is “proper procedure” are strip-searching grannies with the same excuse — even as they deny inflicting any such wickedness.

The latest brutality to catch the corporate media’s attention features an 84-year-old woman who divides her time between New York’s Long Island and Florida. Lenore Zimmerman wears a defibrillator, uses a walker and wheelchair, weighs less than 110 pounds and stands under 5 feet tall. She also boasts a nose for nonsense: “I really look like a terrorist,” she sarcastically told New York’s Daily News.

Ms. Zimmerman tried to catch a flight on November 29 from JFK to Fort Lauderdale and “asked if she could forgo the advanced image technology screening equipment [sic for ‘carcinogenic porno-scanner’], fearing it might interfere with her defibrillator. She said she normally gets patted down [sic for ‘sexually assaulted’]. But this time, she says that two female agents escorted her to a private room and began to remove her clothes. ‘I was outraged,’ said Zimmerman, a retired receptionist.”

Who wouldn’t be? But that didn’t end her travails: “As she tried to lift a lightweight walker off her lap, she says, the metal bars banged against her leg and blood trickled from a gash. ‘My sock was soaked with blood,’ she said. ‘I was bleeding like a pig.’ She says the TSA agents [sic for ‘sociopaths’] showed no sympathy, instead pulling down her pants and asking [sic for ‘brusquely ordering in stentorian tones,’ or I miss my guess] her to raise her arms.”
