I don’t know if this is a joke. It seems like it might be… but I don’t think it is.
This is the Playmobil Security Check Point for sale on Amazon.com.
Here is the best review. I wish I’d written it:
Thank you Playmobil for allowing me to teach my 5-year old the importance of recognizing what a failing bureaucracy in a ever growing fascist state looks like. Sometimes it’s a hard lesson for kids to learn because not all pigs carry billy clubs and wear body armor. I applaud the people who created this toy for finally being hip to our changing times. Little children need to be aware that not all smiling faces and uniforms are friendly. I noticed that my child is now more interested in current events. Just the other day he asked me why we had to forfeit so much of our liberties and personal freedoms and I had to answer “well, it’s because the terrorists have already won”. Yes, they have won.
I also highly recommend the Playmobil “farm fencing” so you can take your escorted airline passenger away and fence him behind bars as if he were in Guantanamo Bay.
This has gotten horrible.
One of the things I’ve said about the TSA and everyone giving up their liberties for the feeling of security is that we know this stuff is wrong… invasive at the least, but our children are growing up in a world where, if they are NOT searched, they will think something is wrong.
