Time to Boycott OLD Navy & it's acceptance of TSA Groping. (Video)

I've seen this on TV several times & it has disturbed me. I'll not shop there that's for sure.

I like the commercials

It shows just how stupid the TSA and some of the agents can be.

It might be 'funny' if it weren't so accurate

The female TSA is clearly getting very sexually excited by close examination of the female passenger. It might be funny if it weren't so dead-on accurate of a sick society.

As disturbing as the insurance commercial

where the Pillsbury Dough Boy giggles at being poked and prodded by a TSA screener. I don't shop at Old Navy and I don't eat much gluten any more. Though I have seen this commercial on TV, I don't watch much of that either without recording it first and hitting the FF button past the commercials.

and scroll down to the picture with this caption:

This is a page from a children’s book called ‘Olivia Goes to Venice’. Why is Olivia “very pleased” about being searched by these two pigs? Looks like an attempt at normalizing TSA searches to young children.

It's all good fun...right?

You guys don't get it

The gag of this ad seems to have gone over most of your heads or you take every little thing too seriously. NO ONE LIKES THE TSA. That's the point! You take a TSA agent who would normally be intrusive, forceful, authoritative, and unlikable but the joke is that the OLD Navy pants are SO great that the agent acts completely out of character. How many times have we seen this concept throughout the history of TV and cinema? Good or bad, it's comedy. It's about as accurate as saying that Harold and Kumar Escape From Guantanamo Bay "conditions" us to passively accept torture. No, it's making fun of it! I would say pick your battles, but there's not even a battle.

Getting people to go against the TSA is probably the easiest part of the liberty movement. Once again, NO ONE LIKES THE TSA. The OLD Navy commercial, in fact, demonstrates this.

Not worked up. Not advancing

Not worked up. Not advancing liberty much by having discussions with the choir either. Harold and Kumar efgb was a great parody of how stupid the drug laws and the government is. Most of the Nazi's were ordinary folk carrying out what their leadership ordered. No different than the TSA. I think the ones defending this commercial are the ones getting worked up. It pissed me off as they are subtley manipulating the less astute by dressing tyranny in a clown suit.

Yes people are apathetic, but

Yes people are apathetic, but that doesn't mean that they are stupid. Maybe I'm worked up because too many people in the liberty movement focus on non-issues and make them a big deal. I've seen the Nazi propaganda videos. They straight up lied to the public. I've seen the U.S. war propaganda videos. They scare people into getting on board. How is an OLD Navy commercial that caricaturizes a TSA agent somehow trying to get people "on board" with the TSA? It's a joke. No one can even have fun anymore it seems.

The fact that these TSA

The fact that these TSA agents are portrayed as ditzy, funny, and cute is what makes the commercial funny! -- Because it is in stark contrast to reality!

And to the person who asked if you would still be laughing if they were Nazi soldiers acting all silly instead of TSA agents: Yes. Yes I would be.

I hate the TSA, refuse to fly, and genuinely am disturbed by the reality of what they do to American citizens. And hell, I don't even like shopping at Old Navy! But is this commercial really something worth getting worked up over?

voice of reason

voice of reason

Nothing like reason. Like

Nothing like reason. Like reasonable gun control. Who said, Extremism is no vice in the defense of liberty

Old Navy advocating tyranny, not cool.

Screw the TSA, and screw Old Navy for advocating it! WE THE PEOPLE don't need this mainstream horse crap, give us our freedom back NOW!!! now…….

kind people rock

Other than injecting the TSA

Other than injecting the TSA as fashionable and attractive it was about the same as a jillion other gag commercials then and now. Their customer base is probably oblivious. To bad. Then again those kind of people will do fine in the NWO.

How is this ad offensive?

Seems like this ad is good. It is reminding people of the TSA and depicts them acting really poorly. I thought it was a good ad. It might actually help to bring people over to our side.

I saw this ad on tee-vee and was going to post it here.

But then I forgot. Thanks for being as offended as I was.

Old Navy sucks anyway... but i'm still going to BOYCOTT!

This commercial doesn't offend me

But to each their own.

Old Navy should have stuck

Old Navy should have stuck with the mannequins. No more OLD NAVY for me. Go ahead Telfire...comment pro tsa on this too.

If you walk blindly through life, you will run into a lot of walls.

Wtf!?

Just get offended by anything that even mentions the TSA, even tongue in cheek.. That will accomplish a lot.

agree with you, I don't see

agree with you, I don't see how this in the slightest promotes or supports the TSA, if anything it says TSA agents are stupid people who will abandon their post to go buy jeans.

What if they were Nazi agents instead of TSA

Would you still be slapping your thighs in laughter?

This ad is dangerous because it fundamentally misrepresents the TSA. They're not ditzy, funny and cute. They're powerful and dangerous.

i dont understand the comparison? youre saying tsa agents are the same as soldiers who participated in and helped murder millions of innocent people?

Yep, that is what he is

Yep, that is what he is saying and if you don't get it, you just don't get it.

Yup, totally agree

it normalizes an institution that should not exist in any free society. Obviously TSA does not equal Nazi, but the same public complacency enabled both to form and persist.

ya downvote me!! woohooo its

ya downvote me!! woohooo its funny how so much emotion fuels the "logic" of members here

It has to do with.....

The attempt to the legitimizing of these antics to the Masses, & that somehow these employees are just like all the rest of us. Which is for the most part correct except for their complicity to the act of Tyranny they are performing.

It's pretty obvious to me

It's pretty obvious to me that the commercial is not attempting to legitimize the TSA.

It is pretty obvious that the TSA is already legitimized

in your mind.

You really hate freedom don't you?

This ad is unacceptable.

Not on national TV. It just goes to demonstrate that this kind of behavior is both "funny" and "acceptable."

It is neither.

The ad turns it into a backdrop, not a focus, when this kind of groping behavior should be the focus of outrage.

Bump for the boycott.
