Targeted Harassment: TSA Agents Exploiting Positions for Political Purposes

Over the past decade or so, we’ve seen a concerning trend of government-funded groups becoming politically weaponized at a rapid pace. However, it’s not just the FBI or public schools that this happening to. Now, it seems the TSA might be joining the list. Reports indicate that some agents within the TSA are using their positions for political purposes, and their latest alleged target are the families of January 6 political prisoners.

Let’s face it, the TSA has an awful track record when it comes to professionalism and how they treat innocent folks. The workers over at TSA make excuses for their rotten behavior and claim they treat people poorly because of the “stress” of their job.

As if we’re not all under extreme stress, every day. That’s the American way of life.

The Verge:

Today, there are eight different tasks that TSOs might perform at a security checkpoint. These include checking documents, performing pat-downs, and “Divestiture,” a fancy term for telling people what items to put on the X-ray conveyor belt. Each task is heavily regulated and standardized. A TSA-approved pat-down, for example, consists of 18 individual steps, and pat-down training alone takes nearly three hours of classroom time.

To ensure compliance with TSA policies, supervisors monitor TSOs via security cameras, random inspections, and regular covert tests. And they hand out discipline liberally. In most cases, TSOs spend their first two years on probation, during which time they can be fired for anything deemed to be “unacceptable performance or conduct.”

This compliance fetish creates a lot of anxiety among the TSA’s front-line workers. “The lower the level you occupy in the organization, the more severe the punishment for committing an error in judgment,” writes Becker. “Everyone [is] always afraid of making a mistake and getting fired.”

That anxiety gets transferred onto the flying public, too. From the moment we step into the security line until we are disgorged on the other side, shoeless and unbelted and without any liquids greater than 3.4 oz, we become Potential Threats, worthy of severe scrutiny. It’s not personal. It’s just policy.

Many people believe it’s less about “stress” and more about the low caliber of people being hired to fill these positions. One former TSA agent wrote a “tell-all” book about his fellow employees and how they routinely mocked and made fun of passengers.

And TSA agents are known for their inappropriate pat-downs, even when it comes to children.

This recent report involving targeted harassment of January 6th families is extremely alarming. During a congressional committee, Marjorie Taylor Greene spoke to the mother of  Matthew Perna, a J6 defendant who committed suicide, thanks to relentless government harassment.

The New York Post:

A Capitol rioter killed himself while awaiting sentencing — dying from a “broken heart” over his case and because “the justice system killed his spirit and his zest for life,” according to kin.

Matthew Perna, who pleaded guilty in December to four charges related to the attempted insurrection, killed himself at home Friday.

“The constant delays in hearings, and postponements dragged out for over a year. Because of this, Matt’s heart broke and his spirit died,” says his obituary in the Herald, a local newspaper in Sharon, Pa.

“Matt did not have a hateful bone in his body. He embraced people of all races, income brackets and beliefs, never once berating anyone for having different views,” the obit added.

Matthew’s mother revealed how her family and friends, none of whom were anywhere near the Capitol on January the 6th, are targeted by politicized and vengeful TSA agents and put through grueling pat-downs to which other passengers are not subjected. MTG polled the room, and several other J6ers confirmed that this was also happening to their family and friends, including one elderly relative of Matthew Perna with a cane who has Parkinson’s disease.


Sadly, this seems to be yet another example of the growing decay within our government, which has seeped into nearly every aspect of American life today. This is what the left calls “Build Back Better” –  singling out and abusing suicide victims simply because their departed loved one held differing political views. The extent of the left’s callousness knows no bounds and has no moral limits.
