You do that, and if you survive the riots caused by travelers just wanting to get to their destinations on the biggest travel day of the year, you would justifiably be sued for many millions of dollars for people's lost vacation and travel expenses.
You would have families traveling with children calling for the TSA to shoot you on the spot. I would be surprised if some protester didn't get beaten to death with a stroller by a mother who snapped from the stress.
Dealing with the new procedures while traveling over the holidays may very well get the public upset enough to demand Congress and the administration make changes. However, if instead problems get blamed on protesters making a mess of things and making life hell for travelers rather than letting them make up their own minds about the procedures, the public will likely have considerable sympathy for the TSA and the issues they have to face.
If you are upset with the TSA, don't protest in such a way that makes life hell on your fellow travelers and harms the airline industry even more. If you do, you will alienate allies and give credibility to the TSA's claims that they have a difficult job to do, and the procedures are an unfortunate result of having to deal with both dangerous and unreasonable people.
What we need is about a 100,000 people who dont care if they miss a plane - or can go to the airport long before their plane leaves - to all descend on Reagan in DC and refuse to be photographed but will put up with a grope.
Traffic at Reagan would come to a halt since the grope takes so long (been there, now engaged).
Cloward-Pivan for our side

Good idea. I suggest that be done on November 24th at airports across the Nation. That sort of activist protest of TSA would be sure to get plenty of MSM TV coverage.
BO & Big Sis appear very scared of what is going to happen on November 24th, National Opt Out Day.
> you would justifiably be sued for many millions of dollars for people’s lost vacation and travel expenses.
You cannot be sued for exercising your rights, or they aren’t rights at all.
You have the right under the current regs to opt out.
Starting your argument with a dispositive negates your line of reasoning.
