TSA bars stripper surgeon, but ok's terrorist's wife to fly.

What is going in in this country when this woman is not allowed to board aircraft for domestic flights,
but this one is A-OK for international flights?

That's this new system of airline "security", where all are slated to be inconvenienced equally (except for those who appear to be muslims, because that would be profiling), Tammy Banovac, a woman in a wheelchair who gained notoriety for protesting TSA by stripping, has once again been barred from boarding an aircraft for no apparent reason, while another one--Kathie Smith--who is married to a Jihadist, advocates terrorism against the Unites States, and poses for pictures holding guns and surrounded by pictures of other terrorists gets to fly wherever and whenever she wants to.
Tammy made TSA look like idiots last month when she took off all but her bra and panties to protest the way that she'd been groped on a previous screening, so now she's getting jerked around every time she shows up at the airport. But Kathie Smith...well she hasn't challenged TSA so they're apparently willing to overlook a few red flags in the name of diversity:

On her MySpace page, currently available for viewing via Google cache, Smith wrote: “As salamu alaikum akhi.. it is time for Jihad and it is now Fard ayn for ALL Muslims whether their in the United Snakes or else where...Insha'Allah!!!!”

Smith has lauded Awlaki, celebrated the deaths of U.S. soldiers -- who she called “terrorists” -- at the hands of the Taliban in Afghanistan, and applauded another user’s posting of a rendering of the two planes hitting the World Trade Center towers on Sept. 11, 2001.

And while she has repeatedly called for jihad against the West, Smith told “I am exercising my right, as an American citizen to freedom of speech, religion, and the right to bare arms. I have the right in America to say what ever I want. That is what makes America so great, right?”

But a paid government consultant aware of Smith’s movements said there’s concern that Smith could follow the path of Colleen LaRose, a suburban Philadelphian dubbed “Jihad Jane,” who pleaded not guilty in March to conspiracy charges involving a plot to kill a Swedish artist and providing material support to terrorists.

“When her husband released the video earlier this month of the two of them holding weapons and included standard jihad imagery, such as pictures of German jihadists that have left to join terrorist groups in Pakistan and Afghanistan or have been arrested for plotting terror attacks, we were concerned that they might be escalating to an attack themselves,” the consultant said.
It's nice to see that TSA has got their priorities straight.

So I ask you: Who would YOU rather sit next to on a long-distance airline flight?

Tammy? Or Kathie?

Unfortunately, you don't get a choice. Since Tammy has dared question TSA's authority, they've ordained that you'll have to share your flight with the jihad-supporting, terrorist-marrying Kathie.
Kathie Smith...has been flying back and forth between the U.S. and Germany as recently as two weeks ago...The FBI also did not respond to an e-mail from asking why Smith is not on the federal government’s no-fly list.

Good luck with that. I'll just drive.


  1. I'll take Tammy since you asked!

    This just pi@@ me off.This broad should be bared from America.She is a traitor.

  3. This is why you can't racially profile people. A blond-haired, blue-eyed, 46-year old Grandmother from Indiana named Kathie Smith is an avowed jihadist and potential terrorist.

  4. So who is supporting racial profiling? I personally support profiling based on a number of factors, including country of origin or destination, citizenship, adherence to extreme aspects of the muslim religion, and facts known to law enforcement, which in this case, would keep Kathie Smith off of aircraft forever.

    That said, let us not forget that so far, every major terrorist act has been committed by young muslim males. It would be stupid to ignore that fact in the name of some pansy-assed desire to appear politically-correct.

  5. Kathie just gives ME a warm and fuzzy about boarding a plane with her in Indy. There's freedom of speach but when you call for the deaths of soldiers that die to protect people like her, it just sort of turns the stomach.

  6. I'm not saying anyone is supporting racial profiling. I'm just saying that this news story is a perfect example of why it's pointless.

    By all means profile. That's police work. Everything you've listed is a perfectly reasonable characteristic to profile.

    I agree that Muslim men have committed most of the attacks against the US recently but lets not forget anti-government Hutaree militia that just got busted this year, the Unibomber, numerous bombings, assassinations, and attempted assassinations by extreme pro-lifers, and Timothy McVeigh. A professor at my school recently had his home and car firebombed by extreme animal rights activists.

    Radical Muslim men have generated a higher body count, but they are by no means the only threat to Americans. As long as we are fighting a "War on Terror" let's fight a war on all terror.

  7. NE, all of the things that you cite are NOT equal. Law enforcement cannot protect every possible target from every possible bad actor out there. The loner on a mission is almost always going to pull something off.

    However, the muslims are different in that they are engaged in a war against us as part of their lifestyle. None of the white criminals that you list in your attempt to make this a racial relativism issue were religiously motivated, nor were they supported by the rest of the people around them like muslim plotters always seem to be. The muslims are also the vast majority of the threat today. There was only one Tim McViegh and one Unabomber but there are millions upon millions of muslims, and while some of them are peaceful and law-abiding, a large number of them are focused only on murdering people. Radical Islam is the threat, and the prime actors in that movement are by and large not dispersed indiscriminately among our populace. Therefore, the security efforts need to be aimed predominantly at this sub-sector of the populace, even if it makes a few liberals feel all mean and unfair.

  8. By all means allocate the most resources towards Islamic terrorism. I'm just afraid of a Cold War situation where we focus everything on the USSR and completely miss the rising tide of Middle-Eastern radicalism. Also, everyone I listed (with the exception of the Unibomber) had support and encouragement from fringe terror groups. McVeigh from the anti-government movements of the 90s, the Hutaree from the anti-governments movements of the 00s, ect. Thankfully they are nothing like Al Queda, but they can still provide the loner on a mission with the training and equipment to kill

  9. TSA has to be one of the most messed up agencies/bureaus ever created. Airplane pre-flight security is an absolute joke.

    I'd take a seat by Tammy also. :)
    I only want to know where she shops. really.
