I support Cupcake's protest. The TSA is an authoritarian, intrusive federal agency. It should be abolished. Let the airports hire their own private security.

Here's his explanation from the local news

I love living in the Portland area; we have all kinds of folks (and issues).

Mags, stripping naked in a public place, particularly in front children, is
a 'melt down' in my book.

I find it disturbing that you don't understand that.

During his '02 PCT hike this same guy (John Brennan), aka, 'Cupcake' 
wore a message on his shirt that said 'PCT FAG' while hiking among a group
of boy scouts on Baden-Powell.

Another of his poorly executed 'protests'.

Please, go ahead and continue to defend his behavior.


Didn't seem too much of a meltdown FWIW:

It is more of a protest  Whether you agree or not with the protest is
another story.
To call it a meltdown? A (large) bit of hyperbole.
