    Florida teachers told to remove books from classroom libraries or risk felony prosecution — (

    Ironically, Manatee County made thousands of books inaccessible to students just in time to celebrate “Literacy Week” in Florida, which ran from January 23 to 27. Only about 50% of students in Manatee County are reading at grade level.

    Gotta get those darn books out of classrooms before kids learn to read. repugs are too busy fighting stupid culture wars and pandering to a group of religious fanatics that don’t even live up to the standards that they try to force on the rest of us. Then they accuse teachers of being groomers while ignoring that Matt Gaetz PAID MINORS FOR SEX.

    As Charlton Heston might say with the voice of DeSantis or some other cracker mouth-breathing Knucklewalker:

    “You can have your book when you take my gun out of my cold dead hand.”

    A proposed draft of a Florida physical education form would require all high school athletes to provide information on their menstrual cycle to state athletic officials, which the “Morning Joe” host bashed as an unnecessary and cruel attack on a minuscule number of transgender teens who play sports.

    “The percentage is so small that they’re doing this to every girl in Florida schools?” Scarborough said. “Talk about overkill. Just stop already.”

    “I mean, let’s talk about that Florida law,” Scarborough continued. “Can you imagine doing that as a young girl when you were, like, in high school, middle school? Come on, talk about, again, the obsession over 0.003 percent of the population, and then the unbelievably small number of transgender students who are playing sports. The Florida Republican Party has gone crazy. They sent out tons of mailers on this, the obsession, and now they’re making young girls self-report on menstrual cycles because of this bizarre obsession?”

    Republicans become more fascist every day.

    Censorship like this interferes with parental decisions regarding what they want their kids to read. My parents (both teachers) would have pitched a fit.

    It’s clear too many “good” republicans are cowards, afraid to do what’s right. Or they have other priorities. It’s amazing how they fail to see that by doing so, they fail to live as a Christian (okay, I’ll leave open a crack, so argue it’s WJWD).

    What I don’t understand is why the large Cuban refugee population thriving in Florida, doesn’t recognize the authoritarianism being perpetrated by Ron DeSantis. If I can recall those refugees, some of whom were transplanted to Wisconsin, and the reason they were fleeing Cuba, why don’t they recall this as well? DeSantis is basically imitating Castro. Have they forgotten how they or their ancestors came to America?

    libs can do their pedophile recruiting elsewhere. When the content of “Children’s Books” can NOT even be publicly aired, they Are Not appropriate for children. This is the Stupidest lib comics Ever!

    The above trolls are so misguided and so incredibly ridiculous. HEY GENIUSES, how many kids have been molested or hurt at drag queen book readings? Aaaaand how many by your CHRISTIAN clergy? And just because you don’t like the contents of a book does NOT mean you have the right to tell me what I can and cannot read or what others’ children have the right to read. You have been whining about rights, yet have no problem restricting those YOU don’t agree with. Idiots. You “people” complain about cancel culture when your heroes are the targets of scrutiny, but are willing to be GIANT hypocrites by actually censoring what you deem inappropriate. I think the bible is filled with all the crap you find distasteful. I think we should ban that first…

    North Dakota’s legislature wants to send librarians to jail if they don’t remove the books they’re told to remove. Librarians are educated on selection criteria, and are better judges of what is appropriate in libraries than those folks are.
