Where is the defenders of the constitution? Where is the supporters of smaller government?? Why isn't your newly elected saviors speaking out against this draconian strip searching, junk fondlers?

Why is it the liberal labeled groups the only ones standing up and saying this isn't right???

The Tea Partiers are all over this issue... Posting hundreds of mostly hyperbolic threads on Internet websites, such as ATS, writing angry and hostile blogs, and waiting for Glen Beck to give them instructions about what to do next.

Ah the olden Dick Armey-Koch Brothers brigade! Simple truth is many of the people who support the tea party could care less about TSA screenings. They voted for who Glenn Beck and Limbaugh told them to.

I have to go back to aborting babies and throwing feces at soldiers since I'm a dirty liberal according to people around here. Gotta make my quota.

Well the elections are over, most are no longer on the payrolls to post their opinions. We'll hear from them again around the 2012 election cycle. The elected TP candidates are too busy meeting with the bankers or demanding their government-run health care kick in.

They came first to fondle the flyers,
and I didn't speak up because I didn't fly.

Then they came to fondle the train riders,
and I didn't speak up because I didn't ride trains.

Then they came to fondle the bus riders,
and I didn't speak up because I didn't ride buses.

Then they came to fondle me in the trailer park,
and by that time no one was left to speak up.

Where are the Tea Partiers?

Same place as the ACLU, that great defender of American Constitutional Rights... how about NOW? Where are all the one's that oppose the Patriot Act? AARP... how's it feel having grand ma felt up by the TSA?

Frankly, we are all here and voicing our opposition to these illegal pat downs... and despite the silence of the Obama Administration...we know he and the TSA hear us.

I bet the Dems are rolling their eyes... "oh, great...another issue we didn't need." Some folks can't understand the Fed or abstract ideas or Socialism...but they understand how it feels to have their kids or wife or parents felt up by a stranger in the name of security.

We are here and getting more pissed by the minute... this is exactly the kind of issue that will expedite the revolution.

I think the general tone was "The Tea Party isn't doing that". By and large the major Tea Party candidates have been supportive of Bush's security measures. Ron Paul is something of a blip. I think there are many Tea Party supporters who don't support such things, but truthfully speaking the movement got hijacked ages ago. Many of the conservatives who are decrying the TSA all of a sudden supported it when Bush was in office. The TSA was groping people back then too.

It's political football. In a few weeks it will be a different issue. I'm tired of all the hypocritical BS.

They don't have anyone worthy anyway. Just more elite-approved nonsense.

Damn, you are stupid.

Get over the left, right, middle political garbage. This isnt about party affiliation, or tea, or coffee, or even donuts. Its about our rights as Americans. Our rights protecting us against unlawful search and seizure. Our basic dignities are being attacked and you would rather find out where a tea party is?

Congratulations on being exactly what they want you to be.

Did you take any time to investigate your question, before posting it to a thread? Or, was this just another of many ad hominem attacks on the Tea Party?

Tea Party Nation founder: TSA scanners and body searches are abusive, appalling, and unconstitutional



CAIVN: What do you think about the TSA’s “nude” body scanners?

Judson Phillips: I am appalled by them. First is the radiation hazard which the regime does not even address. Second, I don’t want people staring at me without clothes or my wife or my teenaged daughter or my grade school sons. There are other and better ways to protect us.

Nowhere to be heard and awefully silent. You think they'd say something about this but no! Another attempt to strike our freedoms and not a peep.

You mean besides recording the footage you are seeing on youtube?

Don't start blasting the tea party when it's a liberal democrat telling you this is all "necessary"

You've got enough problems to worry about, like why how you got hoodwinked and elected a bunch of fascists.

Hannity and Beck were talking about TSA scanners before they were such a faddish taboo.

It's more like, the "Tea party" and "Neocons" have already heard the song and dance and discussed it, and already figured out how to solve the problem. Now we are just amused at how long it took the rest of the world to figure it out.

Why didn't the rest of the world get in on this as early? They were too busy following the election drama on the evening news segment.

Turn on the radio - it was a common topic about six months ago on almost all talk show programs. Now it's the -only- topic due to revived caller demand.

Yes I did and the Elected Tea Party members have not come out in support of the people and the constitution.

Im happy that the founder of the tea party movement has come out against these practices as any American should as this is a gross violation of the constitution.

But what of the politicians you elected????

Scott Brown?????

Nikki Haley????

Ron Johnson???

Any one in the pro constitution party gonna stand up and defend it???? Or are they waiting for Glen Beck to tell them what to do like everyone else?

Rand Paul???

Anyone who is Elected????

Perhaps you should research who and what party introduced this legislation.....

Here's another for ya...

Texas Governor Rick Perry

"How about we take all those TSA agents and put them on the border with Mexico where they can do some security there?" Perry said. "That's where we need security substantially more than in our airports and what we're seeing out of this bunch."
