Glenn Beck reacts to ‘stop and freeze’ TSA policy: ‘go to hell’

Get Glenn Live! On TheBlaze TV

On radio this morning, Glenn expressed his frustration with the lack of common sense in the actions of the TSA. There just seems to be no rhyme or reason to the method of their madness – so Glenn offered some advice: ‘stop treating people like criminals’! He shared some of his own experiences dealing with the TSA, and found it amazing that we keep giving the TSA more and more control over our security in airports when their incompetence runs rampant.

TheBlaze explains their new training exercise:

Video of a so-called Transportation Security Administration “freeze drill” has been posted online, showing a TSA officer instructing passengers to remain in place at Phoenix’s Sky Harbor International Airport before permitting them to leave.

The 24-second footage, posted on YouTube Tuesday, appears to show about a dozen passengers stopped in their tracks with two uniformed TSA officers supervising.

“Stay right where you are,” a blue-gloved TSA officer says as one person tries to walk through. “Stay right there.”

The user who uploaded the video stated the entire drill lasted about two minutes and that it took place within the “secured” part of the airport.

“The tension was rather palpable, as you might imagine. No explanation was given, no other words were spoken. No one moved a muscle. Parents grabbed their children. Anyone who fidgeted or made a step forward got yelled at,” the video’s description stated.

    This is being done not only to intimidate and control and condition people – it is being used as a provocation; the TSA wants someone to become violent.

    I have dealt with many of the TSA near the Phoenix International where this happened, and they actually gloat about it – they have admitted it – they WANT someone to become shaken or violent enough to ‘allow them to commence the intimidation and establish control over everyone they can.’

    This is one more reason the corrupt and criminal TSA needs to be disbanded in its entirety. How long until someone on the TSA pushes too far and causes someone to die of a stroke? Or tries to shove a disabled person and causes massive injuries to them from a fall?

    It is because of my opposition to the TSA and their Thugee- tactics that I am on the no fly list – as if it matters when having to deal with them.

    Maybe they are training Joe Biden just in case he and his boss loses in 2012. In the case of your hand gun maybe it a new Bloomberg policy of shipping guns to Canada when they can. He called it is their problem now act.

    They don’t want you to leave the country now!

    great now freeze tag is next, or Duck-Duck-Goose or their favoured game Red Light-Green Light.

  • Ray Main

    This is one reason I don’t fly anymore. If I can’t drive there, I don’t go. I will not comply with the demeaning that goes on. It has nothing to do with security. They are training you to “obey” mindlessly.

    How is this stopping a terrorist attack on our planes? What a bunch of dolts.

    • John David Galt

      Right on the money. The only so-called threat that TSA “protects” us from ended before the day 9/11 was over, and Flight 93 proved it.

      We need somebody — preferably a state or local cop — with the balls to arrest those jerks (who are NOT police) for violating our civil rights. If that doesn’t happen then some civilian will have to step up, literally fight back, and risk jail.

      I sure won’t vote to convict that civilian, and I hope the rest of you won’t either.

    Does TSA stand for Testing Stupidity in America?

    It as though they are intentionally making fools of the American people by a performing bad SNL skit and calling it airline security.

    They have wasted billions of dollars in passenger and airline time taking naked images and groping us, emptying terminals for hours when they screw up, testing drinks bought within feet of the jet way and doing warrantless interrogations of innocent travelers, demanding answers to questions that law enforcement cannot even ask.

    Now they add a child’s game to their procedures, unbelievable. What’s next from these morons, hopscotch from the checkpoint to the gate or get ejected from the airport?

    They are showing up at bus and train stations and even at public events that don’t even involve transportation. Soon they’ll be stopping people leaving their house under the pretext of “safety”.

    What’s next from this unstable agency, random executions? TSA is out of control and must be compelled to act rationally before this nonsense and incompetence results in a tragedy.

    Ever hear the term “What one generation tolerates the next generation embraces”? What the hell are we doing to our children in this country? SIT! ROLL OVER! FETCH! FREEZE!!! Give it all up in the name of what? Our Safety? “They that can give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety.” — Benjamin Franklin

    If there is any terrorist act involving the TSA in the future, Americans should be comforted in knowing that glenn beck will immediately change his views in order to criticize lack security.
    P.S. It is not Americas fault that the TSA needs a little extra time to wand and scan glenn’s saggy man breasts and multiple belly folds.
    Keep eating fat boy!!!

    So this is it? We turn the country over to idiots in the name of safety? Close the colleges because you just need a HS diploma and a blue shirt to be a national leader?

    Wherever Adolf Hitler, Sadam Hussain, Osama BibLadden are today….they are laughing.
