Parents in Edgewater, Florida are expanding the scope of their protests of a first grade school girl's right to attend school in a peanut free environment. The young lady is afflicted with a peanut allergy so sensitive that just breathing peanut dust could cause a reaction. Parents at the school feel that requiring students to wash their hands, rinse out their mouths in order to protect the first grader is going too far.
"Look -- it's bad enough that my kid's school put in a wheelchair ramp for some gimp kid, but now we have to deal with this peanut thing too?" Jed Clempkit told the FarceHaven. "I saw that little terd last week, so smug, going up his ramp and I told him he should learn to take the stairs like normal people do."
Asked if he thought the American with Disabilities act took things too far, Clempkit replied. "I think it does. Why the next thing you'll know, we'll have to let seeing eye dogs on campus and get interpreters for kids who are too stupid to speak. You know, if people behaved more like good Christian folk like myself and my wife, and they'd man up a bit and quit relying on the charity of others."
Asked what he'd do if his own child were in the same situation, Clempkit replied, "Like that'd ever happen. I'm just sick of these folks, acting all disabled, taking advantage of good Christian taxpayers like myself, acting like they are people with rights and needs like the rest of us normal folk. They should be ashamed."
