Why Did a Tennessee Grade School Ban Pork?
A Tennessee elementary school banned students from eating ham sandwiches, BLT’s and anything else made with pork, but eventually lifted the ban after parents complained."Approved snack list". Sure sounds like something you'd hear coming out of Massachusetts, doesn't it? I mean, we do have the "Approved Firearms Roster", so you know our nannies love to only let you have "approved" things.
Third grade teachers at Sunset Elementary School in Brentwood, Tenn. sent home an “Approved Snack List” for the school year and it specifically banned anything that comes from a pig. “No meats containing pork,” read the memorandum. “Starting Monday, August 12, 2013 your child must provide their own snack from the above approved snack list.”
But no, this is down in Tennessee, voted one of the top five free states. And yet they're caving to the pressure of a very vocal, very minor minority - just like their northern brethren. Now, the school did rescind the ban on pork products after only one day, so there is that much of an improvement over the lily liberal northeast, but the fact remains that they tried it in the first place.
It's hard to imagine the rationale behind a "pork-free" school. One of my son's favorite lunches is a ham and cheese sandwich - verboten under the regulations. Why pork? It's easy to understand peanuts, as peanut allergies can be quite serious and severe - even as much as sitting next to someone eating peanut butter can trigger a reaction in a severely allergic person. But a pork allergy? I just don't see it.
Stay vigilant - the PC idiots will not rest, and we need to keep an eye on their foolishness no matter where we are...
That is all.
