âIâve been doing parody videos for a long time and Iâm interested in the subject of TSA groping and fondling, which has been in the papers, the news and YouTube, all over the place, so I decided to exercise my First Amendment right and made a funny video,â Blackwood tells the caller.
Continuing his probe, the caller delves deeper into the parodyâs content, noticeably offended by the videoâs comparison of TSA employees to Nazi Gestapo.
âThe second question is why would you do such a video comparing our hard workers to Nazis and Adolf Hitler?â the caller asks.
Continuing to defend his First Amendment right, Blackwood refers to recent news that revealed the TSA to be threatening travelers with arrest for simply making jokes about airport security, a driving factor behind the Infowars contest from the beginning.
âMy concerns are our workers are being portrayed as criminals when theyâre here to protect us from terrorists. They do that on a daily basis,â the caller says.
Ironically, that very day, documents obtained through a Freedom of Information Act request confirmed that the TSA allowed Muslim Brotherhood members, a group declared a terrorist organization by the Egyptian government for terror attacks and close ties to Al Qaeda, to skip pat downs and secondary screening while traveling through the US in 2012.
âAnd how many terrorists have you guys caught since day one of this program?â Blackwood asks.
While attempting to defend the TSAâs daily âhunt,â which according to the caller allegedly stops âpotential terroristsâ every single day, recently released internal TSA documents prove the opposite to be true. Sealed court documents published last October revealed the risk of terrorist airline hijackings and bombings to be non existent, no thanks to TSA procedures.
âMany workers have already seen your video and find it very offensive and our workers have families with children sir. How would you feel about it if one of their kids came across your video, seeing people that looked like their parents groping people?â the caller asks.
Apparently unaware of the countless viral videos online showing TSA agents groping woman, children and the elderly, the caller continues by demanding the video be taken down, even warning of legal action before threatening to put Blackwood on a government âlist.â
âAs federal employees we would like to request you take this video down immediately and if your not willing to comply we will pursue getting your video removed from YouTube by all legal means and take you to court for defamation of character,â the caller threatens. âWeâre prepared to take action if you donât comply by this and if you donât comply, theyâre going to take some serious action Iâm telling you. You can say whatever you want but you can consider your name flagged when traveling the airways.â
The âlist,â which could refer to the governmentâs no fly list, was recently ruled unconstitutional by U.S. District Judge William Alsup. A secondary list known as the terror watch list, which now contains more than one million secret names, seems to be a more likely possibility regarding the callerâs threats.
While the TSA has yet to confirm or deny the callerâs claims, the agencyâs documented history of lies has many wondering whether the issue will be resolved any time soon. Judging by the callerâs comments, the call was likely an unsanctioned threat by a rogue employee.
Unfortunately, if the video was to be censored, it would not be YouTubeâs first time targeting those critical of the TSA.
In 2012, a TSA parody video produced by Natural News was censored through age restrictions shortly after being published. That same year, blogger and engineer Jon Corbett was censored in similar fashion after exposing the TSAâs lies regarding the efficiency of naked body scanners.
Last year during Infowarsâ âOperation Paul Revereâ film contest, Blackwood and Off the Hook TV experienced similar phone harassment and even had their YouTube channel suspended after their contest entry, âGeorge Washingtonâs Revenge,â received national attention. The video even attracted an angered response from filmmaker Michael Moore, who was depicted for his anti-Second Amendment beliefs.
