TSA agents at the Louisville, Kentucky airport laughed at a deaf man, called him “f***ing deafie,” and then stole his candy – another perfect example of why this loathsome federal agency needs to be abolished immediately.
Blogger ‘Tea and Theater’ was traveling back home having attended a week-long conference for deaf people in Louisville. His t-shirt, part of promotional material for the conference, clearly identified him as being deaf.
As soon as he approached airport security, the TSA officers began laughing at the man.
“They went through my bag (for no reason), and found a couple bags of candy I brought. I was told I wasn’t allowed to fly with that (wtf? I’ve flown with food before — these were even sealed still because I brought them right in the airport). I was then asked if I would like to donate the candy “To the USO”. Since I know the airport there has an Air National Guard base, and I figured it would go to the soldiers, I (annoyed) said sure, why not?”
“The guards, as I was getting scanned, started eating the candy they just told me was for the soldiers. In front of me, still laughing at me (very clearly now). One of them asked why they were laughing, and one of them came up to me, pointed at my shirt, laughed at me and said, “Fucking deafie”. The Louisville TSA called me a “fucking deafie” and laughed at me because I was deaf, and they expected wouldn’t say anything back (or wouldn’t hear them). Make no bones about it — she was facing me and I read her lips. There was no mistake. I would later find out that they had called at least 4 other individuals the same thing.”
After the man became agitated, his friends tried to calm him before another TSA agent began filming and laughing, calling the group of deaf people “dumb apes”. When the group threatened to make a complaint, the TSA agent retorted, “You’re dumb deafies anyway so no one would believe you”.
The man’s story is now going viral as part of the nationwide backlash against the TSA, an agency that is so institutionally corrupt and staffed by the lowest dregs of society that it is faced with numerous scandals on an almost weekly basis.
Claims that the TSA is deliberately hiring criminals and people with mental disorders make perfect sense in light of recent events which prove that goons working for the federal agency are not merely content with treating travelers like prisoners, but also have to humiliate them for good measure.
