Big Sis Ordered NFL Grope Downs
The NFL’s new policy to conduct pat downs of all people entering stadiums nationwide is a consequence of the organization’s partnership with Homeland Security, the federal agency that has come to resemble an occupying army enforcing the notion that Americans are guilty until proven innocent.
“The NFL wants all fans patted down from the ankles up this season to improve fan safety,” reports USA Today.
“Under the new “enhanced” pat-down procedures, the NFL wants all 32 clubs to search fans from the ankles to the knees as well as the waist up. Previously, security guards only patted down fans from the waist up while looking for booze, weapons or other banned items.”
The Buffalo Bills and the Indianapolis Colts have already announced the new measures will be in place for this weekend’s games.
The policy arrives following the NFL’s partnership with the Department of Homeland Security, who back in January for the Super Bowl recommended that fans entering the Dallas Cowboys stadium be subjected to airport-style metal detectors as well as pat downs. The NFL is following orders as it gets on board with the plan to litter the United States with checkpoints at public places where Americans will be forced not just to show their papers, but to assume the position for minimum wage morons to conduct invasive pat downs of themselves and their children.
But this only marks the beginning of the role DHS sees itself in assuming as part of its occupation of the country.
Homeland Security is also developing technology to be used at “security events” which purports to monitor “malintent” on behalf of an individual who passes through a checkpoint. The promotional video for the program explains how “Future Attribute Screening Technology” (FAST) checkpoints will conduct “physiological” and “behavioral” tests in order to weed out suspected terrorists and criminals.
The clip shows individuals who attend “security events” being led into trailers before they are interrogated as to whether they are terrorists while lie detector-style computer programs analyze their physiological responses. The subjects are asked about their whereabouts, and if they are attempting to smuggle bombs or recording devices into the “expo,” proving that the technology is intended to be used at public events and not just airports. Individuals who do not satisfy the first lie detector-style test are then asked “additional questions”.
Tests for the program were carried out by the DHS back in May, suggesting its implementation is close to fruition. Forget pat downs – the next step for entering NFL stadiums, shopping malls or any public place where crowds gather will be a behavioral interrogation and a radiation body scan.
The NFL policy was enacted following the arrest of a man for using a stun gun at the New York Jets-Dallas Cowboys game last weekend. Using that logic, any time a gun is used in a shopping mall, on a highway or in any building or at any event, everyone will be treated as a criminal and subjected to a pat down as a routine response.
It is estimated that over 16 million people will undergo the grope downs over the course of the football season, acclimatizing them to accept the notion that the 4th amendment is completely null and void. And you can forget the argument about ‘no one is forcing you to go to a football game’ – pat downs and body scans are set to completely infest every level of society – there will be no easy way out if you want to live any kind of reasonable public life whatsoever.
In the coming years, staying away from airports won’t be enough to avoid a run-in with goons groping your private parts. Homeland Security has embarked on a massive gestapo-like occupation of America where “security” checkpoints will litter highways and roads, transport hubs, as well as public events and anywhere crowds gather, and even as saw recently in Santa Fe, at your kid’s local prom night.
This in turn will be reinforced by an army of citizen tattle tales being trained to be the eyes of the state under the See Something, Say Something campaign, which was heavily promoted ahead of the 2011 Super Bowl.
Indeed, Big Sis has made herself a permanent fixture of public life, popping up at every major event and now at Wal-Mart to remind Americans that they live in a police state and should behave obediently and meekly accept the body scans, the behavioral interrogations and the pat downs unless they want to be treated like a terrorist. The NFL has prostrated itself to be exploited by the DHS as a showcase for turning America into a Soviet-stye hellhole. This special relationship between the state and the private sector to push police state measures is a classic example of an inherently fascist public-private partnership that we have seen many times before in historical tyrannies.
America in 2011 is all about being guilty until proven innocent and the complete evisceration of what the country is supposed to stand for in the pursuit of unobtainable “security”. The NFL is merely the next stop on the road to transforming America into one giant prison camp, where the prisoners will constantly have to prove their obedience every time they enter a mall, a sports event, a public building, a stretch of highway, or any place imaginable that formerly allowed freedom of movement.
