Department of Transportation, Hoplophobia, Norman Mineta, Political Correctness, Threats to Liberty, War on Terror
Norm Mineta is resigning as Secretary of Transportation July 17th. Good! But not soon enough.
Under Mineta, the irrational prejudice against Americans defending themselves on air flights continued, and politically-correct safety measures reached levels previously unsurpassed. White-haired grannies were scrupulously searched in order to avoid ethnic profiling.
The Mineta regime’s rent-a-cop insanity reached its ultimate expression in 2002, when in Phoenix, 87-year-old WWII-hero and former governor of South Dakota Joe Foss was detained and had his Medal of Honor confiscated.
