- "Is Library Association's 'Banned Book Week' Really 'Gay' Promotion?; Critic Calls Event a 'Hoax Perpetrated on the American Public Since 1982,'" by Dave Tombers, WorldNetDaily, 25 September 2011.
Go read the WND report to see for yourself.
The ALA faked #9 and awarded school librarian Dee Venuto for LGBT-related reasons (archive link), a librarian who admitted in a New Jersey Education Association publication that she cannot bring herself to read racy material for children so she lets her students read it for her.
Might the ALA have faked #1, And Tango Makes Three, also about the same "big deal"? Well, it was challenged only four times yet it is supposedly #1. We are talking about an organization that used plagiarism to promote Banned Books Week, after all.
|The story is an exclusive, and it headlines WorldNetDaily!|
Think about it. If the top book challenged in the USA was challenged only four times in a year, obviously there is no crisis that the ALA keeps shouting about. If the ALA has to artificially push LGBT material higher on the list, obviously there is no crisis about the "big deal." Even progressive critics of the ALA decry the ALA's use of BBW as "propaganda."
Can anyone ever trust the ALA for anything ever again? Really, I mean it. Faked lists. Plagiarism. Political agenda. Propaganda. So much more I'm leaving out for brevity. Is there no limit to the ALA's dishonesty?

NOTE ADDED 6 OCTOBER 2011:
Remarkable. The ALA posted a YouTube video of author Amy Sonnie speaking in support of Banned Books Week. I "favorited" the video and left a comment in favor of the author but critical of the ALA.
The ALA removed the comment! The self-arrogated freedom of speech advocates deleted my free speech! I'll take that as further evidence of guilt.
Here's what I said, followed by a graphic of what it looked like online with "All Comments (1)" before the ALA deleted it:
I really admire Amy Sonnie. I spoke with her for a half hour at a New Jersey Library Association meeting and saw her speak there.
That said, her book has not been banned and the ALA admitted to her that in truth her book was not the 9th most challenged of 2010. See "Is Library Association's 'Banned Book Week' Really 'Gay' Promotion?; Critic Calls Event a 'Hoax Perpetrated on the American Public Since 1982,'" by Dave Tombers, WorldNetDaily, 25 September 2011.
So the ALA top 10 list is faked.

ALA's faked top 10 list

So much for freedom of speech.
I'll be posting soon about how the ALA has tacitly admitted it plagiarized a low quality "censorship map," exactly as I said about a year ago. I'll point out that plagiarism violates its own code of ethics and I'll demand some action be taken, else the code is mere window dressing. Let's see if/how the ALA will block me on my own blog. We already know the ALA has gotten me blocked on Wikipedia. So the free speech people got me blocked from Wikipedia and now from YouTube.
So much for freedom of speech.
NOTE ADDED 9 APRIL 2012:
In what I view as a major if tacit acknowledgement by the ALA that it fakes the annual top 10 challenged book list to use the LGBT community to promote the ALA's own interests, after claiming And Tango Makes Three is in the annual challenged book list "for the past five years," and after I exposed the fraud used to promote that work and another, the book has disappeared from the 2011 list:
- "Top 10 Challenged Books of 2011," by George Eberhart, American Libraries, 9 April 2012.
Listen to the 2010 award-winning author admitting the ALA faked the list to promote her LGBT book, starting at about the 45:13 mark, as reported in the WND piece above.
As research shows faking claims of LGBT harassment results in increased, not decreased, LGBT harassment and suicide, I am very happy that I have, it appears, stopped the ALA from faking claims about LGBT community harassment that harms the LGBT community while helping the ALA. Yes, the ALA harms the LGBT community, and faking the 2010 list was just one way.
I'll never hear from any in the LGBT community who have not been harassed as a result of stopping the ALA from making false harassment claims that thereby harms the LGBT community, but I still feel good that I may have contributed even a little to improving the lives of those in the LGBT community who may have been targeted as a result of the ALA false harassment claims.
NOTE ADDED 22 JUNE 2015:
Here is further evidence ALA fakes data used to create its annual "banned" books fraud:

NOTE ADDED 3 NOVEMBER 2017:
Dropbox dropped all the URLs, so I think this one is now correct, to hear the awarded author admitting ALA faked the list to promote her LGBT book, starting at the 45:13 mark:
NOTE ADDED 6 JANUARY 2018:
I added the link to the recording of the author admitting ALA fakes it annual banned books list to some of the text above. and checked all the links for currency. Changed some links to archive links.
