GA: Farm stand ordinance passes 4-1; Antoine warns of produce-seeking pedophiles

A zoning ordinance that would allow farm stands at a day care center in Forest Park passed 4-1 Monday.

Here’s how I would’ve imagined this meeting went:

The Council: “Before we make a vote for the zoning ordinance that would allow farm stands at a day care center in Forest Park, does anyone have anything to say about it?”

*Councilman Antoine stands up and clears his throat*

Councilman Antoine: “I’m concerned a farm stand at the day care might attract pedophiles and human traffickers who would visit under the pretense of shopping for produce.”

*The Council pauses for a second*

The Council: “You’re a f#ckin’ moron…”

@Bill
I will second your above comment.

Some of these so-called “Politicians” will say some crazy things just to get their name mentioned in a news article.

I guess the next thing this person will try to introduce is a residency restriction – Registrants can’t live within 1,000 of a road-side ‘Produce Stand”.

Educated response from a parent int he article.

Leonard also said she was offended by Antoine’s comments. “I took that very personally, coming from somebody from abuse, and it’s actually statistically proven that any sort of abuse, especially typically on pedophiles, is typically within the family or somebody the family knows. I have never felt safer in a school environment as I do with Little Ones …. Why is this an issue?”

That’s hilarious. Why do smart people put up with such stupidity? Unreal.

I posted a comment at the article. I addressed the stupidity. It is quite easy to post a comment there.

Lettuce, tomatoes, pedophiles, oh my

Hahaha…thanks for the laugh this morning. Really?? We all know kids don’t like to eat their vegetables 😫

The PD in that town better be watching Councilman Antoine, anyone that thinks and say stuff like this is dangerous to children.

“…anyone that thinks and say stuff like this is dangerous to children.”

I totally agree!!! People who come up with crap like this are probably themselves tormented these kinds of thoughts and compulsions.

My goodness, I do believe he is correct. This could be a concern. In fact, I suggest the ordinance be extended to any politicians that wish to speak in school gymnasiums or auditoriums. For all we know, most of those that have been attending to hear politicians could be pedophiles just trying to gain access to the school. No more campaigning, no more town halls, no more meetings of poiticians anywhere children could congregate,

Are they gonna ban selling carrots, egg plant and corncobs? They are potentially phallic and we don’t want OUR CHILDREN seeing those objects of Satan in plain view in a public setting. /S

The good councilman gets political cred for this effort with the people though off the backs of others. That’s all that matters with the votes. Even in failure, others still win in politics.

Yeah, come here little feller, I got some broccoli for you in my van. You said it right, “fu%$ing morons.” These pussy ass people destroying the country, what ever happened to land of the free and home of the brave and all that? So glad real Americans are starting to step up around this country and take back our heritage and value systems.

OMG!!!!
Now they want to deny registrants the right to buy food????????
What will they come up with next?

What happened? Did I type in ACSOL and land on The Onion? Produce Pedophiles! My mother always warned me to be wary of strangers handing out broccoli and parsnips. You can’t make this stuff up.

Funny thing is that a good portion, if not most, of commercially available produce in this country is most likely sourced by individuals who probably fit the description of “human trafficking” – in third world countries but also here, let’s not kid ourselves. Which is more than just prostitution. But if it does not involve sex, human trafficking / forced labor does not bother us and delights our wallets.
