On Sunday afternoon, talk radio host and Breitbart’s Contributing Editor, Dana Loesch had an interesting encounter with the TSA. She tweeted, “TSA said I was covered in explosives, took me to a private room and touched my vagina. So how was your day?” Clearly, we were having a better day than she was.
Loesch unleashed a series of tweets explaining the situation. She says that she tested positive for explosive residue, which meant that the TSA needed to pat her down. She insisted on having a public screening so everyone could see. But the TSA would not allow that and put her in a closed room to conduct their inquiry. They subjected her to such unthinkable cruelty as depriving her of food. She tweeted, “Despite arriving two hours early, due to TSA molestation I now have no time to eat and am hurrying to gate.” Actually, they might have done her a favor in that regard. Airport food isn’t really food. Does boiled pizza sound good to you?
After the intrusion, Loesch continued to tweet advice to her followers. “If there are body scanners OPT OUT,” she wrote. “If they subject you to screening, RECORD IT. If they take you to private area make them STOP U from rec. ” She also made it clear that she wouldn’t take this lightly, saying, “I AM going to file a complaint against the TSA. ” Loesch then uploaded the video below showing as much of the incident as she could. She tweeted this quote to drive her point home. ““Those who would give up essential Liberty to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety.” – Ben Franklin.”
