At JFK airport in New York, this past week, TSA agents strip-searched a ticketed passenger going through security.
Why? Because the passenger didn't want to go through the X-ray equipment, fearing that it might interfere with her defibrillator. The usual alternative is a pat-down search (something I've had done myself), but in her case, they opted for a strip search.
Why? That's a bit unclear, as the passenger didn't fit any threat profile I've ever heard of: she's white, 85 years old, weighs 107 pounds, and uses a walker.
Somehow in the process of doing the humiliating strip search, they managed to injure her as well.
The only reason the TSA would strip-search a passenger like that is in their eagerness to avoid “profiling”. In an all-too-familiar example of the triumph of multi-culturalist political correctness over common sense, our TSA has decided that we cannot recognize the rather clear fact that terrorists seem to be overwhelmingly (1) Muslim, (2) young men, and (3) Middle Eastern. Not that there aren't exceptions (though I'm pretty certain that 85 year old Caucasian women are not amongst them), but the preponderance of terrorists do, in fact, fit this profile. There, I did it: I used the politically-incorrect word.
The good news: Europe, where our “elites” get their cues, seems to have figured out that the multi-culti movement has been a disaster for them. The first steps to reversing the ravages of multi-culti are underway. If they can avoid a new Nazi takeover as the pendulum swings the other way, even our “progressives” will wake up and start singing a different, politically-incorrect song.
I can hardly wait!
