TSA propaganda cartoon aimed at children

“Stop. Screen. Go.”
Those are the magic words in a new TSA video cartoon aimed at children, called Prepare for Takeoff. It’s on a nifty page — “TSA Kids” — that’s part of the “Official Website of the Department of Homeland Security,” which also includes links to other fab TSA stuff, such as “Fun Page” and “Parents Page.”
As all propagandists know, you gotta get ‘em while they’re young.
To that end, the TSA has already been a busy little bee. Its employees are known to stand around at the checkpoint passing out little badges (though no more fake than the ones they themselves are wearing), in effect deputizing children as “Junior TSA Officer.”
This might seem strange to anyone who’s observed how the TSA actually treats children, but then why let facts get in the way of a good game? And anyway, millions of parents have already been brainwashed — willingly — into supporting the TSA’s make-believe; why shouldn’t their children follow suit?
The family that gets scoped & groped together, stays together!
