TSA Singles Out #Qanon Believer
If you espouse pro-Qanon ideology online, and use personally identifiable information, there is a better than reasonable chance that your name has been added to a TSA watchlist instructing agents to profile and search any person known to self-identify as an “anon.”
Javion Hardaway, an electrician living in Boston, said “aggressive” TSA officials prevented him from boarding a flight from Boston to St. Petersburgh upon learning that he loved “Q.”
An avid “Q” enthusiast, Mr. Hardaway said he spends eight-to-ten hours a day reading and posting to “Q” message forums across all types of social media. Moreover, he believes that JFK Jr., who in 1996 perished in a private plane crash off the coast of Martha’s Vineyard, is alive and well and helping President Trump wage a clandestine war against a cabal of “Deep State” pedophiles led by none other than Hillary Clinton, who, according to Mr. Hardaway, drinks children’s blood to prolong her unnatural life.
On August 3, Mr. Hardaway stood ready to board his flight, having completed the TSA’s mandatory X-ray screening procedure. He was just about to hand a flight attendant his boarding pass when two TSA agents demanded he accompany them to a “private office” for additional screening. Mr. Hardaway said he informed them that his status as a “sovereign citizen” prohibited unwarranted searches, seizures, or detainments. He added that he admonished them for violating his Constitutional rights and freedoms and cordially informed them that he, as a sovereign citizen, had a right to travel unmolested within the United States of America.
“They accosted me, told me I couldn’t board my flight unless I went with them first. As far as I’m concerned, they abducted me—kidnapped me. I intend to file charges. They took me into an office and made me strip. Told me to bend over, man, and one of them shoved his finger up my sphincter. When I asked what all that crap was about, they told me it was standard procedure. Then they asked me what I thought about Qanon,” Mr. Hardaway said candidly.
Then the agents asked him to complete a lengthy, intrusive questionnaire, with questions ranging from what types of firearms he owned to whether he, based on Q’s advice, would participate in an armed insurrection against democratically-elected or appointed politicians.
“When I asked them what authority they had to ask me all this garbage, they said they were doing it on Trump’s authority. I said bullshit. Told them that Trump’s draining the swamp, not filling it, and refused to answer their damn questions. They told me I couldn’t board my flight unless I did, but by that time the plane had left the gate,” Mr. Hardaway said.
According to Mr. Hardaway, the TSA agents excused themselves, saying they’d be right back, but left him in a locked room for nearly three hours, without food or water. Mr. Hardaway claims they turned up the heat in the room to heighten his already stringent discomfort.
“I was sweating balls in that room. When they finally came back, I demanded to know why they’d incarcerated me against my will and asked them what they intended to do about the $600 I spent on now useless plane ticket. Know what they said—“Sorry about the inconvenience. You should be more cautious about your online activity.”
In closing, Mr. Hardaway said he is working alongside the ACLU to bring charges against the TSA for violating his civil rights. ACLU lawyer Omar Jadwat declined to comment on specifics but expressed full confidence that his client would be vindicated.
