Supermom vs. the Gutless Wonder That Is a Jury

by Becky Akers

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.

Instead, "Abbott 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 gate-rape.

Ms. Abbott’s case came to trial this week. And yep, the jury found her guilty of "disorderly conduct."

I occasionally 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."

Au contraire. 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.

Tragically, 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.

Meanwhile, 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.’"

So do all free adults.
