Skip to comments.TSA screeners fire back: We donít want to touch your filthy, flabby, disgusting junk

Sounds like its almost unanimous, then. Everyone hates the junk-touching, except of course for Gloria Allred.
Lest you doubt their sincerity, look at it this way: Considering how little money they make at TSA, if they were really into touching junk, wouldnt they look for a more lucrative outlet for their interest?
Some comments from these TSOs include:
It is not comfortable to come to work knowing full well that my hands will be feeling another mans private parts, their butt, their inner thigh. Even worse is having to try and feel inside the flab rolls of obese passengers and we seem to get a lot of obese passengers!
Do you think I want to go to work and place my hands between womens legs and touch their breasts for a few hours? For starters, I am attracted to men, not women and if I was attracted to women, it would not be the large number of passengers I handle daily that have a problem understanding what personal hygiene is.
So...probably didn't work?
They could say no. En masse. I’m sure it sucks to be a TSA agent, and I know it’s a tough time to find another job. However this is about more than jobs and being felt up. This policy is about subjugation. It is certainly NOT about security, and they are on the front lines, so they are going to take the brunt of the blowback. It sucks, but that’s the way it is.
If we make the TSA employees the bad guys in this, we lose. BIG TIME. Mark my words.
People are not happy about the policy, but are they are NOT projecting this on the employees.
To hell with that. Crime is caused by criminals, not the Crime Fairy. The Nuremburg trials resulted in the executions of Nazi war criminals, not Genocide Pixies.
These scum are culpable in the abuses of a police state, and should be held accountable, as should their superiors.

Fire all the TSA personnel, close the agency.
Chill out. Comparing TSA agents trying to find explosives to Nazis sending people to ovens is absurd. You sound like a moonbat comparing Bush to Hitler.
Your remedy is to push a well articulated alternative policy. Not to denigrate every TSA agent.
No way. And Glenn Beck is way off base with that idea. These people are taking a job as muscle for a bunch of thugs. They’re not going to get a free pass from me for their depravity. I don’t give a damn how much they claim to hate it.
An old phrase comes to mind:
“Let’s not and say we did.”
Yeah, TSA are the real victims here. TSA is just following orders! They don’t really want to feel us up! They deplore having to embarrass us and humiliate us! The just can’t stand participating in destroying the constitution like this! And besides, we all stink!
I see we are in a tit-for-tat with TSA now.
Name calling and insult slinging.
Can they honestly believe eStripping and fondling honest ordinary citizens will do anything to stop terrorism?
There was a device I heard about a few years ago that was like a phone booth that did a high air volume bomb sniff of the passenger. That and the metal detector would be more appropriate than this visual or tactile invasion of privacy happening now.
Israeli-style security would be great, except that it’s ridiculously expensive.
Israel pays $76.92 in security costs per passenger.
The United States pays $7.80 per passenger.
Not to mention the additional 123 million man-hours of work it would require. In order to achieve anything resembling efficiency at the airport, the TSA would have to be larger than the ENTIRE active and reserve military.
Also, here are the statistics for pay-rates for TSA agents:
10.91 - 15.59/hour or 28,800 to 38,787 a year.
Never thought of that, but, wow, that sure sounds probable. Kind of makes me suddenly sick in the pit of my stomach.
If they hate it so much, and the pay is bad, then they can do what the rest of us out in the real world would do. Get another job. Of course then we wouldn't be part of a (soon to be ) government union.
Quit. And STFU. It ain't your rights that are being violated.
In case anyone here misses my point, I don't give a damn what these people think. Remember..................
I will not “chill out”.
Right now a nascent authoritarian police state seeks to expand its authority in America. The inevitable result if these people are not stopped is a totalitarian state. Anyone trying to aid and abet such expansion differs from Nazis or Red Guard only in degree, not in kind. I repeat, they are simply smaller, feebler and more timid than Checka or Sturmabteilung, but are of the same squalid statist essence.
Anyone who would hold such a job is a thug, and should be held liable in criminal and civil law.
To hell with these dishonorable, contemptible statist toadies.
agree 100%. If they just as a group said, we don’t work until this policy is abolished, it would be abolished! I despise anyone who is party to this destruction of America and our rights as citizens. the difference between this unpalatable job and others is in this, they are actually abusing and humiliating their fellow citizens and taking away their rights. No mercy!
It’s the Power Rangers, Groper and Prodder.
It looks like the pay range is GS-5 through GS-8....high 20’s to high 40’s, depending on locality.
the death camp guards were “only following orders” too...that defense did not work at Nuremberg either...
"Then don't do it, you jackwagon!"
Note to you perverts and molesters at the TSA: If you cannot stand the abuse you're getting from the people you are molesting and assaulting, then do the right thing and quit! You do not have to follow illegal orders.
I say that every American who's manhandled and demeaned by this scum should demand that law enforcement arrest the TSA goons and we sue the pants off the TSA, Director Pistole, DHS, and Secretary Napolitano . . . just for starters.
“And I am sick of people like Shawn Hannity defending the TSA agents
If the majority of conservatives disagree with you, thats telling you something.”
That’s because “The Majority Of Conservatives” don’t fly.
