Need a dozen bibles, a dozen pocket constitutions and two dozen fake book jackets that will fall off when tossed on to a fire.

Because Leni Riefenstahl was such an effective propagandist cinematographer that the near orgasmic joy she attributed to this abhorrent activity is still perpetuated culturally in the nation that defeated hers some ninety years after filming it.

If that's the case, we should start burning bibles....

So they are cancelling the books.

These assholes really have nothing better to do. Do some charity work, help a neighbor, learn something new. Don't waste all the oxygen you are getting for free on such nonsense.

Books educate and inform. They rely on superstition and belief. Anything that gets in the way of that has to go.

That fire code sounds rather explicit...

How many farking kids are frequenting the school library this far into the 21st century?
This is what they decided is turning their kids into genderqueer transnational communist wakandans? The school library?

They haven't noticed their kid spends every waking hour looking at:

So is there a list of the books these fine folks were attempting to save us from?  I'd like to go buy a bunch for Christmas gifts.

Yes, he would be appalled at these obstacles to kids learning that he raped a 14-year-old slave, impregnated her, and kept on raping her after the fetus died. Or that he was 44 years old at the time. And he would be so upset that they couldn't learn that the slave was his wife's half-sister, because his father-in-law sired her by raping the slave's mother. His disgust would peak when Virginians couldn't find out he inherited his wife's slave half-sister as a toddler.

Stop calling them Nazis, they are Republicans.

Fun fact: I go out of my way to introduce authors whose books were burned by Nazis.

First, most are magnificent texts.

Second, it feels as good as kicking Goebbles in the crotch.

Let's see where this is.

Oh look. It's really close to me.

I know exactly where that is. Although I'm surprised to learn that the Sheriff put an end to it.

When people read they become enlightened. When people become enlightened they become harder to control.

That's entirely anti-abrahamic religion. You can't have free thinking open minded thinkers it breaks the book when people can think above a stillborn level.

That's true of fundamentalism, not necessarily of religion. Have you ever heard of the Jesuits?

When the GOP found out they could obstruct justice, successfully, in cases of National Security; they joined the Taliban.

Amazing how not prosecuting public terrorists, traitors, spies and nazis, gets America more terrorists, traitors, spies and nazis.

The FBI and DOJ need a public trial  on CSPAN to remove all the russian terrorist supporting republicans.

That's because, Alexandria at least, is full of US government employees and US government contractors..

Republicans joined the Taliban to fark with America, or people are getting to eventually be prosecuted for treason, sedition and the RICO level terrorism Trump ordered.
The only way forward, without capital charges, is for the GOP to completely destroy democracy, so that the DOJ cannot function.

The difference between Evangelical Christian utopia and Taliban's Sharia-law Afghanistan is a mere rounding error on some of the finer details - they both worship Abraham's God, and enforcing His edicts upon the masses by force is their one and only goal, come hell or high water.
