In the videos below, ad agencies attempt to portray Gestapo TSA goons in a light and comical fashion. The result of this is to excuse and normalize what a few short years ago was considered the sort of abusive activity found primarily in totalitarian police states, not republics.

Scowling TSA goons going through our luggage – and sticking their hands down our pants – is now part of the routine.

Airing propaganda masquerading as television commercials gets us accustomed to what we should find abhorrent. It reduces fascism to a Saturday Night Live skit. It sends a message – lighten up, this is part of life and the cost of doing business (as the victims in the video discover). It’ the price we pay to stop terrorists.

It should come as no surprise large transnational corporations like FedEx and AT&T find Gestapo behavior normal and something to poke fun at. Corporations have funded fascist military coups and violent takeovers around the world, most notably in Chile, Haiti, Guatemala, and elsewhere in the third world. Transnational corporations operate more effectively in police states where troublemakers are disappeared and bureaucrats easily paid off.
