This is nonsense.


Freedom of speech. Freedom of creativity. Freedom of self expression. These are American values. If 'righty' values differ then they are no longer American. These "lefty' values are the reason you can be a furry. "Righy" lie and falsely accuse the furry fandom. "Lefty" gives freedom. "Righty" seeks to take freedom away. "Lefty" believe that all points of view are equal. "Righty" believes their point of view is the only one.

"Lefty" = American
"Righty" = Nazi

It is very cut and dry.

Praising oppressive governments for banning books is very "righty" of you.  If there was anything in those books that wasn't appropriate they would not have been in schools to begin with. Banning them because they have different views than "righty" is wrong. Is anti-American. Cut and dry.

Let's take this one at a time.

"Freedom of speech. Freedom of creativity. Freedom of self expression".

Who is it that's destroying these freedoms? That would be Facebook, Twitter, Google, YouTube -- all run by far left CEOs like Zuckerberg. They are the ones doing the shadow banning, the demonitizations, and the outright banning: always of conservative opinions, never leftist.  It's leftist college boys who resort to violence to silence consrvatives such as Ben Shapiro and Ann Coulter. Political Correectness is about nothing other than suppressing freedom of speech.

" "Righy" lie and falsely accuse the furry fandom".

Evidence please? This has not been my experience. When the subject comes up, the furbashing always happens on left sites, never conservative ones.

""Lefty" gives freedom. "Righty" seeks to take freedom away"

Like bans on autoloading (misidentified as assault rifles) rifles that would deny me the freedom of purchasing an AR-15? Or "vaccine" mandates that would deny pure bloods the right to travel, go to school or work? Last time I checked, it wasn't Republicans or conservatives doing that.

""Lefty" believe that all points of view are equal"

Demonstrates just how mindless lefties really are. Phlogiston Theory is not equal to Oxidization Theory. Creationism is not equal to Evolution. Astrology is not equal to Astronomy. Flat Earth is not equal to Round Earth. All points of view are not at all equal.

""Lefty" = American
"Righty" = Nazi"

You do understand that "Nazi" is the English mispronounciation of the German acronym: NSDAP? What does NSDAP stand for? Nationalsozialistische Deutsche Arbeiterpartei. What does that mean? National Socialist German Workers Party. Doesn't sound very conservative to me. However, "Nazi" is another thought stopper that means nothing more than "I don't like you".

"Praising oppressive governments for banning books is very "righty" of you"

Congratulations, you learned your Rules for Radicals: accusing the opposition of being/saying/doing what the left really is being/saying/doing/. I did no such thing and you know it.

"If there was anything in those books that wasn't appropriate they would not have been in schools to begin with".

How would they know unless there was an honest debate? There has always been differing opinions as to what is age appropriate and what is not. There have long been controversies over such books as Catcher ibn the Rye or The Learning Tree. These decisions are best left to the parents and their representatives on local school boards.

When you come down to the basics, there are only two political philosophies. One is to disperse state power as widely as possible, to place it in the hands of the people. This is what the authors of the Constitution tried to do with a system of checks and balances between the legislarture that enacts laws, an executive that enforces laws, and a judiciary that intreprets laws. It is also why the United STATES was organized as a federation of semi-autonomous states -- a fourth branch of government.

The other philosophy is to concentrate state power in a central government that becomes large and highly intrusive. This is the system you find in Communist China or North Korea. Is this really what you want?

So how else do we know that banned books... Nazi Germany. Simple equation. Nazi = Republican therefor Republican = Nazi.

Spoken like a true leftoid. Stalinist Russia, Maoist China, and all their vassal states banned books too. I'm sure North Korea still does. So what's your point? Authoritarian regimes gotta authoritarien.

It's a false equivalency when it comes to discussions as to what materials are age appropriate for children. Censoring adults is never acceptable.

"School reunions suck. I don't see the point in going to them. I have no interest in going to mine."

Agreed! I skipped out on mine. I didn't see any point, and I wasn't particularly interested in seeing these folks. I have better things to do with my time.

Why the fork are we still banning books?! Kids and adults need books like these and if they start banning warrior cats then I'll have lost what little faith I have in humanity  :goldbloody:

That's a bit Godwin-y Cause but I will say that no one good or on the side of equal freedoms has banned books and/or knowledge. Republican or Democrat or other.

Thanks Jade. I have everything on youtube's search criteria turned off. I do get random weird videos when I open the youtube channel. But I shouldn't get off the wall videos when I do a search. Have no clue what the words "oil painting" have to do with right wing propaganda. It's my hope their so desperate they tag hundreds of words to their videos. Hoping to make up for losses due to people getting tired of hearing things that never come true. It is unfortunate that some brain washing victims will never recover. But most do.

My gripe today is I have to work Sat. Don't like the time. But I do like the pay.

In the last several months, there's been a flurry of activity in Texas, Florida, and other states to ban or limit books in schools and libraries on the topics of race and gender. It doesn't matter whether the books are fiction or non-fiction, books for adults or books for children, and everything in between.
Here is just one example news story:

https://www.cnn.com/2022/09/07/us/book-bans-school-changes-reaj/index.html

How do you feel about books being banned on race and gender topics? Or any other topic?
Do you agree with the bans or do you believe that you should have the right to decide for yourself what you want or not want to read, and not have politicians or other people decide for you?

Me? I'm all for book freedom. I will decide for myself what I want to read. Not somebody else. You can have my book (whatever it may be) when you pry it from my cold dead paws.
