Posted on 04/24/2017 10:08:23 PM PDT by vannrox
4th Amendment Wear is a series of underclothes that have the Fourth Amendment to the United States Constitution printed on them with metallic ink that so that it will show up when worn through a TSA X-Ray machine.
The clothes are designed as a silent protest against the new reality of being searched to the point where were basically naked. We dont intend for this to be anything more than a thought-provoking way to fuel the debate about safety vs. civil liberties. If we sell a few items, great. But the main intention is to open more dialogue. Its more of a conceptual piece than anything else.

Great idea. Thanks for post.
I have been through enough airports to suspect that at some, this will be grounds to get you specially search and/or refused boarding.
Was recently herded into one of the L3 millimeter wave scanning machines at a Western US airport by an African immigrant wearing a TSA uniform.
I can recall when an individual like him would have stood out like a sore thumb in that city, because 40 years ago, no one had ever seen anyone like that there.
But there he was, ordering the Americans around, and of course, if you said “do you think this is Constitutional?” he would have snarled and said “I don’t geev a damn about jor Constitution, just move”.
Isn’t it wonderful that we are now nothing but cattle to be kicked around by foreigners most likely of the Muslim persuasion?
And isn’t it a bit like being in an insane asylum, where the inmates are running it?
It doesn’t pay to draw more attention to oneself while in the shadow of the TSA baton.
There should be better ways.
If one does choose this form of activism, God bless you.
Just be very sure to have at least two people filming it from different angles and have a couple of unafraid lawyers ready to aggressively defend you.
Do not, repeat, DO NOT rely on TSA ‘seeing the light’ of your logic and suddenly share a can of Pepsi.
I think this is excellent.
With an artistically placed assault rifle.
"...shadow of the TSA baton..."
“It doesnt pay to draw more attention to oneself while in the shadow of the TSA baton.”
I don’t know, I thought the woman who showed up at O’Hare wearing only erotic looking underwear under her over coat was a pretty funny response. If I remember right she said something like, “If TSA get’s to look so does everyone else.”
I wonder if United would seat me if I tried to board a plane wearing only a speedo and flip flops?
It’s the price of national cowardice.
There were the choices of going to war against nations sponsoring terrorism or of turning our nation into a police state in an effort toward civilian police detection of foreign enemy threats.
Our nation has no will to fight, so the decision was made to routinely search Americans and the personal effects of Americans in an effort to detect whatever kinds of lawbreaking.
For some reason it reminds me of some retard spending $30 for a Che T-shirt.
It won’t make any difference in a few years anyway. Only military personnel will be flying then.
It was legal to own, but by a strict reading of the law it was illegal to show it to any foreigner, including those just walking down the street.
Wonder how it works on “millimeter wave” machines? All X-Ray backscatter machines were removed from airports 3 years ago. And on millimeter wave machines, all the TSA operators see is the “stick figure” graphic with a yellow box for the “problem area”. Only TSA techs or vendor repair people might see the message in the “RAW” data/display. If you lay the tee shirt flat in your carry on it might work as it passes thru the belt-fed x-ray station, but that is about it.
“FCK TSA - The only thing missing is U”
Underwear that reads “SCAN THIS” with an arrow pointing down.
A TSA guy asked to have a separate inspection of my cell phone. He knew it was dumb and basically apologized and said it was a required random inspection.
These guys are “mailing it in”, collecting a paycheck.
They know their job is a joke.
The average janitor in a high rise is more important to every-day security than the TSA inspectors.
Today’s airports are just gigantic fourth amendment violations and a symbol of lost American liberties.
