Well, at least he didn’t make it through the right wingnut republican 4th Congressional District primary in August. Not that there’s any difference.

I’m proud to have banned these books in school libraries. It’s sick that people think this is appropriate for school age children.

You need to watch Footloose again.

Can you also ban a book full of violence, bigamy, and murder?

Child sacrifice, rape, incest …

We see what you did there.

People who ban books are always on the right side of history… Right? [….]

Meh, Gender Queer is totally fine for high school kids. I’m sorry you are embarrassed by it, but not your place to say what is or is not appropriate for others’ kids.

If parents don’t like it, they can ban it for their own kids.

Stop encroaching on my kids’ liberty and choice

It takes a special kind of lack of intellect to pat on one’s back for trying to dumb the next generation to one’s level. Fortunately, there are plenty of smart parents who hand all kinds of books to their kids & tell them that life is full of variety & diversity & it’s beautiful!

Aren’t you that waste of synapses that wanted to teach young Earth Creationism?

Heh. Yep.

Nazis ban books (P)Rick

It fits.
