Supermom vs. the Gutless Wonder That Is a Jury

You may remember
Andrea Abbott: she was Mother of the Year in 2011 when she protested
the TSA’s ogling and groping of her teen-aged daughter at Nashville
International Airport. "According
to an affidavit, Abbott first refused to allow her daughter
– then 14 – to go through a body scan machine, saying she didn't
want ‘someone to see our bodies naked.’" Good for her! If Leviathan
employed normal people instead of psychopaths, the TSA’s perverts
would have profusely apologized for their voyeurism and pedophilia
and slithered back to their sewer.
and her daughter went through a metal detector and TSA Officer [sic
for ‘deviant’] Karen King was sent to conduct a pat-down [sic
for ‘sexual assault’]. King testified that before the pat-down [sic
for ‘sexual assault’], Abbott yelled in her face that she didn't
want anyone ‘touching her daughter's crotch.’" See? Told you this
lady is an exemplary mother!
But alas, she
also committed an unforgivable sin in the totalitarian state: she
assumed that her authority over her daughter supersedes Leviathan’s,
that bureaucrats may not interact with, let alone touch, the girl
sans parental permission. "Abbott was accompanying her
daughter to the gate but not flying herself. She eventually allowed"
– intriguing but expected choice of words from the corporate media:
wanna bet she "allowed" this the way most passengers "allow"
the TSA to molest them? – "her daughter to undergo the pat-down,
but then refused one for herself."
You can guess
the outcome. In Amerika’s police-state, cops arrest women resisting
case came to trial this week. And yep, the jury found her guilty
of "disorderly conduct."
hear from intrepid readers who vow to defy the TSA when it attacks
them or their families at the checkpoint. I always advise against
this: a far more effective and prudent course is to avoid nationalized
aviation no matter what. Defiance so mild or natural that no
rational person would recognize it as such – for really, what is
more natural than a mother’s fight to protect her child? – will
result in arrest. These folks then respond, "Fine, let the
TSA call the cops, because any jury will exonerate me."
Courts and juries were once more of a viable weapon against tyrants,
and intended to be so, too: the Founding Fathers could not conceive
that self-respecting adults would side with a dictatorial, abusive
government against one of their own, that they would applaud the
State’s savaging of a citizen who has done nothing wrong or, in
Ms. Abbott’s case, behaved heroically.
juries have degenerated until they are nothing but another of the
State’s tools. Progressive government has assiduously infantilized
Americans over the last century; most today are about 4 years old
emotionally and intellectually. They look on Leviathan with the
same trust and affection that they did their teacher in kindergarten.
Like her, the State is always right. And anyone daring to challenge
even its outright, obvious crimes is a troublemaker threatening
the whole class. The good children want said troublemaker to stand
in the corner while they cozy up to the teacher. They cravenly glow
as she praises their obedience.
I applaud the
vital and essential work of the Fully
Informed Jury Association, but they struggle with a Herculean
task. Until they succeed, no dissident should ever gamble his life
and freedom on twelve snot-nosed, squalling babies.
Ms. Abbott continues to stand tall, a heroine among pygmies. The
judge scolded her as though she rather than her assailants is the
malefactor and sentenced her to a year’s probation. "Her defense
attorney, Brent Horst, said she was disappointed in the verdict,
but felt she got a fair trial. ‘She just wanted to stand on principle,
because she felt that she had done nothing wrong,’ said Horst, who
handled the case pro bono. ‘And I admire her for that.’"
