Secondhand Smoke Hysteria Crosses Into Psychosis

The moonbat campaign against cigarettes has reached levels of hysteria not seen since the Salem witch trials. In Dallas, Chris Daniel is suing for six figures because her former neighbor smoked.

According to Daniel, cigarette smoke somehow managed to seep through the “solid, two-hour fire wall from the foundation to the roof” that separates homes in her townhouse development, causing her to suffer the torments of the damned. Nonetheless,

the Daniels renewed their lease at Estancia — where smoking is permitted — six months after they say the problem began.

Management bent over backwards trying to pacify the petty tyrant.

Managers replaced air filters repeatedly, installed sealant-type electrical plates and — at the Daniels’ request — used an industrial-grade roofing sealant to caulk pipes under their kitchen cabinet.

However, greedy moonbat bullies are not so easy to appease.

The neighbor moved after a judge forbade her from smoking in her own home. This still wasn’t enough. Only large amounts of other people’s money can satisfy a moonbat. The Daniels have moved too:

Last week, movers wearing surgical masks loaded trucks with their belongings.

The Daniels said furniture will need to be reupholstered, artwork restored and closets full of clothing dry cleaned. The bills are still piling up.

The point of this theatrical farce: an avaricious lawsuit.

But wait, there’s more moonbattery:

Chris Daniel also filed a complaint under the Texas Fair Housing Act, alleging that her sensitivity to cigarette smoke qualifies her for protection set aside for people with disabilities. …

Dr. Barbara Stark Baxter, a clinical associate professor at UT Southwestern Medical Center, wrote that Daniels “qualifies as disabled under the Texas Fair Housing Act and the Americans with Disabilities Act.”

If bureauweenies reward Daniel with coveted victim status for claiming she could smell a cigarette through a firewall, she will officially become a higher being, whose whims are law to the rest of us.

Until recently, cigarettes were a normal part of life. What aspects of daily living that we take for granted now will generate this kind of uproar in the near future, as liberal authoritarianism draws ever tighter around us like a python constricting its prey?
