"Censors" are So Scary!

"Censors" are So Scary!:
So if some rube gets a book removed from some library, that's the "power of the state" suppressing ideas? What a tremendous leap in logic. Since most book challenges seem to be about books for children, the argument becomes even more bizarre. So, EVERY book is suitable for children? Oh, even on the off chance some librarian actually removed a book, how does that suppress ideas for any of us? If a book is gone, does that really mean "no one else has the chance to read" it? How dumb do you have to be to believe this stuff?

Click to see more clarity like that. It really exemplifies everything SafeLibraries has been saying. The Annoyed Librarian sees right through the ALA's "shameless propaganda."

I highly recommend everyone read the Annoyed Librarian at her new blog at the Library Journal. Here's her former blog.

Brava, AL.
