Recently, we have been bombarded with mainstream media stories over the mandatory NFL searches. This year, the government is enforcing a policy that all NFL games require a search/pat-down prior to entering the stadiums. All major news networks have been promoting this as being unconstitutional and invasive. With them is the Anti-Christian Lawyers Union (ACLU) filing a lawsuit to stop the searches from occurring. Here are a couple of quotes:
"The pat down search is basically an unlawful search and seizure violates the 4th amendment of the constitution." - Becky Steele, ACLU
"I believe we will be sued or could be sued, personally I don’t even know if I want pat down searches to occur on myself." - Patrick Manteiga, Tampa Sports Authority Chairman
I find it quite humorous because all of the individuals interviewed for comments felt that not only was this practice acceptable but also non-invasive. This just goes to show that the majority of the citizens don’t side with the opinions of the MSM or ACLU. Finally the media found one individual at the recent Tampa Bay game claiming that the Bush Administration enacted this policy to ‘instill fear’ in the citizens to boost his approval ratings over the war in Iraq. Wow, that conspiracy sounds genius! Bush and his Halliburton cronies are patting everyone down so they still think terrorism exists. I just want to know how the liberals found out that terrorism in the US isn’t going to happen ever again. On a side note, everyone else interviewed and supported the decision received about 10 seconds of talk time while the one lunatic, also drunk I might add, received nearly 5 minutes.
The MSM and ACLU are also pointing fingers at picking up the bill. They can’t help but mention that the government might pay the bill, in turn, coming from us, the taxpayers. Oh no, I can’t afford any more taxes that might prevent a terrorist attack. It’s amazing how slanted the MSM is, now trying to repeal the government’s efforts to protecting its citizens. And for those who don’t like the rule are undoubtedly the ones trying to hide something, be it a joint or a bomb.
