Flying in Europe? Don't fear a pat-down

BRUSSELS, Belgium — “Don’t touch my junk” probably wouldn’t translate well into all 23 official languages of the European Union.

But Europeans don’t need a rallying cry to resist what the U.S. Transportation Security Administration (TSA) calls “enhanced pat-downs” and aggrieved travelers are calling “government-approved groping” — it’s not happening in Europe.

Despite escalating warnings about terror attacks in or originating in Europe — Belgium arrested almost two dozen suspected terrorists this week, for example — none of the 27 EU governments have instructed airport officials to employ extra-rigorous pat-downs on travelers who set off alarms on the normal metal detectors or opt out of full-body scans in the few airports where they’re used. When European air travelers do have to endure a pat-down, apparently they don’t complain about it.

Why? Why is it that airport security in the European Union and the rest of the world does not emulate the airport security of the United States, courtesy of the fascist TSA?

I'll tell you one answer: It is all about control, dominance and subjugation of the American people against their will.

Despite all those staged terrorist attacks, the E.U. is not willing to subjugate its population into a fascist police state just yet...
