“Teaming Up” With Your Rapist

Few things are more craven and despicable than a serf who cooperates with Our Rulers in her own degradation. But that is indeed the shameful record of a talking head named Denise Albert.

Late last year when trying to board her flight, Denise “had one of the worse experience [sic] of my life. It’s right up there with the news I got last December, that I was positive for breast cancer. …TSA agents aggressively attempted to do a body cavity search in public. … the woman shove[d] her hand up my crotch and then tr[ied] to go down my shirt.”

In other words, the TSA treated Denise to its standard sexual assault though she was battling cancer and had a port in her chest to prove it. She was rightfully furious (what a pity all victims aren’t), proclaiming at the time, “I have never been so humiliated or felt more violated in my life.”

But the Thieves and Sexual Assailants didn’t limit themselves to gate-rape: while rifling her luggage, “another TSA agent joked about all of the eyelashes I had. I told her it was because I don’t have real ones from my cancer treatment. …While all of this was happening, I knew it was wrong. I knew the TSA agents were out of line. I knew I had to do something about it…”

That something turns out to be “Team[ing]  Up with TSA for Powerful Video [sic for ‘Propaganda’] After Last Year’s ‘Horrific’ Airport Body Search [sic for ‘Molestation’].” Denise is singing a different, albeit awkward and ugly, tune now: “I think it’s really important that a passenger and also the agents really review and know what each of their rights are and what the protocol is…”

Yo, Bumblebrain: ever heard of the Fourth Amendment? That’s “what each of our rights are and what the protocol is,” not what some perverts high on their own power-lust decree.

But I interrupted the inarticulate Bumblebrain: “When somebody’s traveling with the illness — no matter what the illness is — I think it’s important for agents to know that obviously they have to do their job but to be a little sensitive.”

I wonder whether Bumblebrain would be as accommodating to unofficial rapists. I’d also like to know how much the TSA is paying her or whether her need for attention is so overwhelming she’ll jump in front of any camera, even those of her torturers.
