Every year, Americans butcher fifty million turkeys for Thanksgiving.
But now, turkeys – of the featherless variety – are taking revenge.
A new article from Business Week explains “How Airport Security Is Killing Us“:
For millions of Americans, the misery of holiday travel is made considerably worse by a government agency ostensibly designed to make our journeys more secure. Created in the wake of the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks, the Transportation Security Administration has largely outlived its usefulness, as the threat of a terrorist attack on the U.S. homeland continues to recede. These days, the TSA’s major role appears to be to make plane trips more unpleasant. And by doing so, it’s encouraging people to take the considerably more dangerous option of traveling by road.
The Business Week article repeats some of the same statistics cited in my book Questioning the War on Terror (soon to be issued in its Third Edition). Those facts and figures prove that terrorism is not a significant threat. Even counting 9/11, your chances of being killed by “terrorists” are vastly smaller than your chances of being hit by lightning or drowning in your bathtub. And according to the FBI, extremist Muslims commit only 6% of the few terrorist attacks that do happen. Extremist Jews actually commit more terrorism than Muslims.
Automobile travel, however, is extremely dangerous. America loses a 9/11’s worth of people on our highways every 28 days! As Business Week observes, “To make flying as dangerous as using a car, a four-plane disaster on the scale of 9/11 would have to occur every month, according to analysis published in the American Scientist.”
In other words, even if all airport security were completely abolished, you would still be far more likely to die driving ten miles to the airport, than to die in a terrorist attack.
By making air travel so unpleasant that many people choose to drive rather than fly, the TSA is, in effect, slaughtering hundreds if not thousands of Americans. That’s not counting the high blood pressure and eventual heart attacks they’re inducing, or the cancer they’re spreading with their radioactive naked body scanners.
With their eight billion dollar budget to protect us against a nonexistent threat, the TSA is forced to terrorize us into believing the threat is real. And by terrorizing us, they are killing us.
They brag about all of the dangerous things they’ve confiscated – such as GI Joe action dolls with four inch plastic rifles, light sabres, medicine from old people, and other alleged weapons of mass destruction.
Yet the TSA has never once, in its whole history, prevented a would-be terrorist from boarding an airliner.
Indeed, the whole notion of “terrorists boarding airliners” may be a collective paranoid hallucination, an instance of “extraordinary popular delusions and the madness of crowds.” As respected researcher and human rights activist Elias Davidsson shows, no evidence was ever produced that any Arab terrorists, or any Arabs at all, boarded any of the four doomed flights of 9/11. No ticket stubs, no authenticated official airline passenger lists, none of the dozens of security videos that would have to exist, and no testimony from airline employees who would have ticketed and boarded the malefactors was ever entered into evidence by the government.
The various mutually-contradictory unofficial passenger lists somehow provided to the media (with no chain of custody) had no Arab names on them. A scholarly book issued by Europe’s top academic publisher affirms that ten of the alleged hijackers were documented to be alive after 9/11. And the US government pointedly refused desperate requests from the 19 hijackers’ relatives, who are convinced their loved ones are innocent, to do DNA tests on human remains allegedly discovered at the alleged crash sites (again, with no chain of custody) to determine whether the Arab patsies were indeed aboard the planes.
By butchering Americans in service to a gargantuan hoax, the TSA turkeys are committing mass murder.
It’s time to save America – and sacrifice the turkeys of TSA.
