A Nice day for a book burning

School Board Bans Pulitzer-Winning Graphic Novel About the Holocaust (msn.com)



Quote:The move to ban Art Spiegelman’s Maus, first reported by The Tennessee Holler, is the latest in a wave of book banning sweeping the country, particularly school districts in conservative areas.

The McMinn County school board’s 10 members voted to axe Maus from curricula and school libraries, citing its use of the phrase “God Damn” and its drawings of “naked pictures,” though those are cartoon mice.

School members said the ban was not related to the book’s depiction of the Holocaust as it tells the story of author Spiegelman’s father in German concentration camps, with Jews depicted as mice and Nazis as cats. Serialized over nearly a decade, it was collected in a book that in 1992 became the first, and so far the only, graphic novel to win the Pulitzer Prize.

I have no problem with parents deciding what their children are allowed to read in SCHOOL libraries.
Yet, isn't it interesting, you have no problem with censoring, banning and suppressing medical information about treatments to adults.

I have big problems "censoring, banning and suppressing medical information about treatments to adults"

Parents can control what the own kid reads, that is if the kid lets them. Public schools can't do anything about that.

That's the best kept secret for the last 2 years.

You have been consistent. Denigrating anyone who has used Ivermectin as taking horse de-wormer paste.

That ain't censoring, banning or suppressing. Though I'm flattered that you think I have that power.

Too bad you can't read otherwise you'd know what I'm saying.

I don't denigrate anybody using the horse wormer either.
