Seattle Restaurant Refuses to Serve TSA Workers

A restaurant in Seattle has made a powerful statement by refusing to serve TSA agents until the invasive pat downs stop.

Excellent, and I hope only the beginning of a growing pushback against these goons...

give them a pat down

better still,
why not give them the option of going through a pat down or a cavity search before entering the restaurant, of course for their own safety !!

Take away their social comfort zone. I've been on that idea for two years. You can help, right here, from home, for free.

this is like proof

I sure hope this catches on.

Anyone have a guess of how many airports and the number of TSA workers there are?

This could be huge!

Could this be expanded to other establishments like gas stations, grocery and hardware stores?

that was fair and balanced coverage


It's the modern American caste system...

At the airport travelers are second-class citizens...

In this restaurant TSA workers are second-class citizens.

It may be old news, or made up .. but it's still a great idea!


It makes me sick when I watch them slide their fingers across

John Lennon was pretty cool

He wrote "Imagine" in 432 Hz A, instead of 440 Hz.

I think you meant "Leninism", and I hope you appreciate this informative correction. I learned about 432 Hz A here, a month or so ago, thanks to fishyculture.

I love you. I'm sorry. Please forgive me. Thank you.

I might have missed it the first time, but did they say the name of the restaurant doing this? It would be nice to know, so if anyone is near Seattle they could drop in, get some coffee, and say thanks to these people.

Good point...

The interviewer and interviewee here were way to propagandish to explore those thoughts, but come to think of it, it makes a lot of sense. The interviewer automatically assumes the business would make less money by turning down business, but actually, the restaurant might make a whole lot more by taking a stand. Then, like you say, all of us in agreement with their principles would be more likely to go there and give them our business.

Reminds me of when the Chik-fil-A guy said he didn't agree with gay marriage, then they had a huge business boost!

WOW! They don't even mention the fact the getting pat downs

is offensive and violates our rights. Oh no, it's that union issue, WTH? I hope the viewers could put 2 and 2 together for themselves. I am soooooo happy that the TSA agents are getting some peer rejection. They need to be shamed!!!

Don't blame us!

We are only following orders. Said the Nazis at the Nuremberg trials.

Just wanted you to know...

That picture based on your comment is really getting some action over at Facebook, so thanks again.

That's really good! Liked.

That's really good! Liked.


Just making sure people remember how the German mindset was during the mass killings in WWII! Thanks for the share!


I had the exact same thought! The Nazis were just following orders right? Haha, what a bunch of brainwashed morons, it's sad, but now that their propaganda and brainwashing is getting more obvious maybe even some of the idiots will wake up?

Nice comment.

I made this picture based on your comment. I hope it gets some views.

Seriously. How do people say

Seriously. How do people say with a straight face, "they don't make the laws, they just carry them out." FUCKING SERIOUSLY? What is going on in your HEAD woman?

lol yeah. Don't blame ze TSA

lol yeah. Don't blame ze TSA agentz. They have to feed their families by molesting yours.

Did anyone else notice MSNBC finally hired a black person?

Had to chuckle

when the "reporter" asked about losing business by denying their bread and butter customers... How much business has this move generated? I know I would certainly support this cafe if I lived in the area.

Another term for preventive war is aggressive war- starting wars because someday somebody might do something to us. That is not part of the American tradition.

Who knows? The word may have gotten out and made their business better!

Does it have anything to do

Does it have anything to do with "legal" at all? This restaurant owner exercised his own imperial mandate just like Obama did when he instituted the highly questionable "legal" entity,TSA, in America. It seems to me that the restauranteur's decision to reject the TSA is more "legal" than Obama's.

Just remember, unless the

Just remember, unless the restaurant owner is of the same race and gender as Obama then he has to meet a higher standard before the title of legal is achievable. Thus is the way of the NEW land of liberty and equality for all.

Can't the restaurant

Can't the restaurant implement the same security they exhibit in the TSA workplace? Make every person the restaurant selects go through any search including a full body cavity search, before passing a certain point in the restaurant. Select only TSA workers and you have broken no laws. I applaud the restaurant and if I am ever in Seattle I will find out which restaurant it is and go buy a big meal there every day for as long as I am in town.

they cant...

They would be charged with sexual assault. It is only legal if the gubmint is doing it. Its for your own safety. Ha!

My Dad lives in Tacoma

I haven't seen him for some time. Perhaps sooner would be better to fly into SeaTac and meet him for lunch somewhere.
