I Missed It. Monday Was "RIGHT TO READ" Day As Designated By The National Education Association

The National Education Association is always an entertaining group of propagandists. Their page often excoriates groups pushing for parental rights, demands taxpayers pay teachers ridiculously high salaries while allowing schools to ignore protecting teachers, and of course, pushed the myth of "book banning" by those mean old Conservative parents who don't want their young children learning how to have anal, oral, and vaginal sex via a library book from the school library; a book that has graphic, pornographic pictures.


So, it is not a surprise that they are pushing "Right to Read" as their latest fundraiser, I mean, cause du jour. Here is a picture of their web page:




Their even clever enough to use the Solar eclipse in their one-page diatribe, a page filled with half-truths and total lies. The half-truths are lines like " Organized pressure groups have used their power, and a long list of titles to wage an aggressive campaign to empty library shelves of all books instead of allowing people to decide for themselves what they and their children read. " The dead giveaway of the half-truth is the phrase, "empty library shelves of all books."


Funny, I never heard a call to get rid of all library books. What I heard was a call to get pornography, whether gay or straight, trans or "cis," black, white, Hispanic, out of school libraries where young children could possibly check them out without their parents ever knowing. Imagine your third grader coming home with Penthouse Magazine in its heyday.

And there is a huge lie regarding the fact that effort to remove pornography severely impacted titles about LGBTQ+ Individuals and people of color. What are you trying to say here NEA? That the only books about LGBTQ+ and people of color involve pornography? I think there might be some people in those groups that would object to that.


One other lie is that the NEA doesn't address books that promote or depict pedophilia. They skirt this issue because many of the books parents want removed involve pedophilia in the story lines and scenes. Either the NEA condones pedophilia or they have their collective heads shoved in a hole in the ground.


Strange huh?


Here's the bottom line. When you see the National Education Association go balls to the wall to promote something, it's not good for kids. Or teachers. Or anyone who is good and decent.

I guess using the eclipse was a good idea, since the NEA never gives the whole, true picture. They always block it with lies.


NOTES: If you want to see how pornographic these books are, look here to see just ONE of them: ( WARNING! Don't let your child see these images. Gender Queer.pdf (booklooks.org)
