Former Governor Jesse Ventura: ‘We’re a fascist nation now’

Former Governor Jesse Ventura: ‘We’re a fascist nation now’

Former Minnesota Governor Jesse Ventura lambasted Friday at a federal
court hearing "un-American" security procedures implemented at airports
across the nation in 2010.
He filed a lawsuit with the Transportation Security Administration in
January, claiming their use of pat down searches at airport security
checkpoints is unconstitutional. Pioneer Press reported
that a lawyer for Ventura argued in federal court that the searches
violate his Fourth Amendment right against unreasonable and unwarranted
searches.
The Justice Department has filed a motion to have the lawsuit
dismissed, claiming that the searches are legal and that they can only
be challenged in a federal appeals court.
"In a free country, you should never feel comfortable being
searched," Ventura told the Justice Department lawyer Tamara
Ulrich. "This is not the country I was born in. We're a fascist nation
now."
The former professional wrestler had a titanium hip implanted in 2008
that sets off metal detectors at airport checkpoints. Since 2010, new
TSA procedures require him to undergo invasive physical pat down
searches when he sets off the device.

The body imaging scanners and pat down procedure implemented by the
TSA have received intense scrutiny amid reports of travelers feeling
humiliated and traumatized
