Obama Condemns ‘Profoundly Misguided’
Book Bans in Letter to Nation’s Librarians

Original Article

Posted By: Dreadnought, 7/17/2023 5:17:25 PM

Barack Obama released a rare public letter denouncing the “profoundly misguided” attempts to ban books in libraries across the country. “Today, some of the books that shaped my life – and the lives of so many others – are being challenged by people who disagree with certain ideas or perspectives. It’s no coincidence that these ‘banned books’ are often written by or feature people of color, indigenous people, and members of the LGBTQ+ community,” the former president wrote. Obama’s comments come amid a wave of parent concern over the addition of highly sexualized content to public-school libraries. Much of the concern has focused on the book Gender Queer

Continuing his performance as a jerk , the book in question " Gender Queer " is not for kids even though those pushing it say that it is. You know that you're correct when the left goes into hysterics re pushing garbage on kids.

There you have it. Absolute proof that the school administrators insuring that books are age appropriate are absolutely on the right track. By the way Obama- No books are being "banned" so shut up.

So he is saying that racial/sexual minorities write more than their share of sexually inappropriate books for children? And that he was profoundly affected by these type of books? Goes with the long-standing rumors

I don't know why he is complaining that books that influenced his life are banned. No one is proposing banning Karl Marx and the writings of Communist Frank Marshall Davis his mentor.

Name ONE, just ONE banned book! Never underestimate a treasoncrat's ability to twist something to mean the complete opposite of what it actually is. While normal people view Animal Farm and 1984 as a warning, treasoncrats view them as how to manuals

What a crock of misinformation! Parents are asking that pornography be placed in the adult section, not prominently displayed in the children's section. If you doubt the porno label, look at the book "Gender Queer." We're not talking about "To Kill a Mockingbird" or "Huck Finn."

The book is described officially as “...a useful and touching guide on gender identity — what it means and how to think about it — for advocates, friends, and humans everywhere.” Those parents who believe their children need "guidance" on their gender identity, or "how to think about it" are free to expose their children to the graphic illustrations and opinions such books provide. Parents have watched with alarm as school systems have become more aggressive in their efforts to introduce controversial ideas and beliefs to American children, whether their parents like it or not. There seems to be a great deal of resentment toward parents who insist on deciding for themselves what material is developmentally appropriate. That's not a "book ban." Parents are free to present their kids with such material if they think their kids will benefit from the illustrations in those books. What they can't do, much as they would like to, is put it out for all the kids when the parents disapprove.

No one is banning books. What they are asking/requiring is that books are age and subject appropriate. Sex has no place in the library of elementary schools, period. Gay sex books have no place in 6-12. But then we all know this has nothing to do with educating students and everything to do with grooming them. As Toni Morrison said, when someone tells you who they are, believe them. They told us they are coming for the children. I believe them.

Disgraced Disney CEO Bob Iger “put roughly a third of the company up for sale this week,” Bloomberg Business reports. According to the report, the sale announcement was a subtle but unmistakable one. Iger made the announcement during his disastrous CNBC interview last week, where he was caught lying with the false claim that Disney is not sexualizing children. By declaring its cable and broadcast TV assets “noncore,” the report says, Iger told the world ABC TV, the FX cable networks, National Geographic, and Freeform are all for sale. He’s also looking for a partner for the failing ESPN.

US District Court Judge Karin Immergut ruled that Ballot Measure 114’s restrictions on large-capacity magazines that hold more than 10 rounds are constitutional because these magazines are “not commonly used for self-defense, and are therefore not protected by the Second Amendment.” “Even if LCMs are protected by the Second Amendment, BM 114’s restrictions are consistent with this Nation’s history and tradition of regulating uniquely dangerous features of weapons and firearms to protect public safety,” the ruling said.

Iowa was, for a long time, a political swing state. Speaking as one who grew up there and lived there until my 26th year, and most of whose family still lives in Iowa, I can say with some confidence that Iowa is a place of great momentum. In small towns and rural areas like the one I grew up in, not much changes from generation to generation. Not industries, not farming practices, not families. But Iowa is an important state politically, mostly due to its status as the opening bell for presidential primaries. Note Tucker Carlson’s recent series of interviews with various GOP POTUS candidates – in Iowa.

Interspersed with what was being seen in public at the time was a battle behind the scenes. As multiple women have testified, Thomas invaded women’s locker rooms, flaunting his decidedly male genitalia with no care for their comfort.
