Slide Back Under the Rock, Trolls

Just disgusting:

The family of an autistic boy is reeling after the child’s mother received an anonymous hate letter that suggested the family move or “euthanize” him.

“I was shaking when I was reading it,” said the boy’s grandmother Brenda Millson to CityNews. “It’s awful words…terrible. You don’t know why somebody would ever do such a thing.”

Neighbors rallied together to show support for 13-year-old Max, who was diagnosed with severe autism at the age of two.

Karla Begley, the boy’s mother, wept as she read portions of the hate mail to local news.

“I also live in this neighborhood and have a problem,” the writer stated in the one page letter that was received on Friday. “You selfishly put your kid outside everyday and let him be a [sic] nothing but a nuisance and a problem to everyone else with that noise polluting whaling [sic] he constantly makes!!!”

“That noise he makes when he is outside is DREADFUL!!!!!!!!!! It scares the hell out of my normal children!!!!!!!” it says.

“When you feel your idiot kid needs fresh air, take him to our park you dope,” the letter reads.

Calling the boy a “hinderance to everyone” the letter writer states that “no employer will hire him, no normal girl is going to marry/love him and you are not going to live forever”.

“Personally, they should take whatever non retarded body parts he possesses and donate them to science," the letter said. "What the hell else good is he to anyone!!!”

“You had a retarded kid, deal with it…properly!!!!! What right do you have to do this to hard working people!!!!!!! I HATE people like you who believe, just because you have a special needs kid, you are entitled to special treatment!!!”

The letter ends by asking the mother to move or have her child terminated.

“Do everyone in our community huge a [sic] favor and MOVE!!!!”

“Go live in a trailer in the woods or something with your wild animal kid!!! Nobody wants you living here and they don’t have the guts to tell you!!!!!”

"Do the right thing and move or euthanize him!!! Either way, we are ALL better off!!!”

The letter is signed: “One pissed off mother”.

Why doesn't this "brave" person affix her name to this garbage?

It is my fondest wish that she is "outed" and treated as she would clearly treat others.

Absolutely appalling. I work, as a school-based physical therapist, with especial-need children, including some who exhibit autistic behaviors. They are fully human beings, reflecting in their own way the Creator's love for them. . . . But, then, so are the millions of children--including many who have genetic defects detectable by amniocentesis--who are murdered in the womb every year, in countries that were once part of Christendom. The time is coming (I fear it will be soon) when the state will use its police powers to enforce the demands of such as the despicable "one pissed off mother."

I applaud your work and too fear what the State will do to the most vulnerable in society. If this woman was simply concerned, that letter would have taken a totally different tone. But, as it happens, this woman is a word that cannot be uttered in polite society.

"Why doesn't this 'brave' person affix her name to this garbage?"

Because hypocrites in society who favour abortion and euthanasia tend to get upset about things like this and she would have been subject to equally hypocritical persecution.

The outrage over this has virtually no right to exist, given that so many people that are outraged would have told that mother to have an abortion years ago, maybe favoured post-birth infanticide and euthanizing people with defects.

Either you find a problem with this as a whole because you value human life, or shut the hell up.

With that said, that letter is vile and disgusting, with no regard for the value and dignity of human life.

God forbid people should re-think their stances on any of these issues. They favour "weeding out" the disabled yet are angered by this letter? Why bother?
