TSA declares gropin’ season on Thanksgiving travelers

Many travelers heading home for the holidays this week already had to contend with #Strikesgiving protests at LAX and mechanical failures that closed Penn Station. Those flying home this weekend can anticipate a second trip though the TSA checkpoint, and no, the experience hasn’t gotten any less invasive, if these tweets are any indication.

Your buns are a prime target for a TSA pat-down.

Secrets? Oh, there are no secrets when you’re in line at the airport.

So, just what is being smuggled onto commercial airlines this holiday season?

While many are packing less these days to avoid baggage fees, some are reporting their bags feel just a bit lighter after landing.

Doesn’t anyone have any love for the TSA? If they do, it’s not enough to motivate them to tweet about it.

    I’m not afraid to fly. The Global War on Terror makes it impractical to do so. I’ll drive if I travel anywhere… Even Hawaii.

    Twitchy: You included the tweet above from gay adult video star Jake Lyons complaining how he was patted down in Detroit by TSA. I think that speaks to how bad the TSA practices are.

    I had a bobby pin holding my bangs out of my face. After TSA groped my hair where it was pinned, I had to remove the pin and leave it behind. The dangerous weapon that a bobby pin is.

    TSA is a disgrace and it baffles me seemingly nothing is being done to arrest the gross malpractice of the unfit, so-called TSA agents. Since its inception exactly what has been achieved? Sarai Gras is spot on: “I just caught a terrorist!”…. said no TSA agent ever.

    They always go through my luggage, always. Every time I open my suit case I see the little TSA note saying they inspected it. Also, they almost always inspect my carry on and my purse. Ugh. lol Luckily I’ve never been groped. If I do get groped, I will ask them to take me to dinner.

    If the Democrats are so anxious to have the entire southern border wide open, why not just eliminate airport security altogether? If one part of the border isn’t closed, why should the rest? Just let anyone do anything to get here. Sure, we might lose a few thousand people every year, but at least the DNC will have more voters.

      I always wonder why they bother, when actual terroists can just walk right in?

    When gay porn stars start complaining about the TSA groping, you know you have real problems. You can’t make this stuff up.

      When the masculine agent felt me up, she starred into my eyes and I just GLARED AT HER. I could tell she was on a power trip and loving that she knew I was PISSED OFF! I hate them! errrr they are PATHETIC aholes!

    Sexual Harrassment is OK if done by the government.

    • SineWaveII

      Sure just ask Bill Clinton. And is anyone surprised that it’s the DHS (The parent agency of TSA) that has had the highest level of complaints for sexual harassment
      for the last four years?

    I had to travel over 550 miles to a meeting, and with all the delays plus the plane change my coworkers faced, it took me only 30 minutes longer to DRIVE there than it took my coworkers to FLY.

    No pat-downs. No checked-bag fees. No one telling me to take my shoes off. I spent less money to boot, driving my own car with my iPod hooked up the whole way.
