AWFUL: Republicans Are Literally Burning Books

Hyperbole. It's not just a river in Egypt (Virginia Star).

A mother of a student at Fairfax County Public Schools called out the school board for indirectly making accessible to students two books featuring child pornography and pedophilia in school libraries at Thursday night’s school board meeting.

...[the mother stated] that she watched what had happened at a Texas school board meeting after parents discovered two books accessible to their children, Lawn Boy by J. Evison and Gender Queer by M. Kobabe. [She] looked for and found the books at her own child’s school, Fairfax High School, as well as other places in the county, including Robinson Secondary School…

...[she] discovered that the books depicted pedophilia and sex between men and boys, including one book that showed a fourth-grade boy performing oral sex on an adult male.

“The other book has detailed illustrations of a man having sex with a boy,” Langton said to the school board, while she unfolded copies of the x-rated illustrations. “The illustrations include fellatio, sex toys, masturbation and violent nudity.”

The school board recording of the meeting avoided a close up shot of the book content and censored the images, Nomani reported.

“I can’t wait to have your cock in my mouth — I’m going give you the blow job of your life,”  Langton read from the book Gender Queer. “Then I want you inside me.”

Burning books? Burning books isn't asking schools -- which we pay for -- to avoid porn in their officially sanctioned library.

Today, so far as I can tell, the only real book-burning is censoring the teaching of American civics, history and exceptionalism.
