Far-right 'Moms for Liberty' group demands schools stop exposing kids to 'sexy' pictures of seahorses

By Matthew Chapman September 24, 2021

https://www.rawstory.com/book-banning/

 

“On Friday, The Daily Beast reported that a far-right group in Williamson County, Tennessee, is demanding schools censor a number of books and subjects — including an unusual demand regarding pictures of marine life.”

“Among their demands are that lessons about Martin Luther King, Jr. and Ruby Bridges be cut for being divisive, lessons about civil rights crackdowns be cut for "negative views of firemen and police," and lessons about Galileo be revised for being too anti-church. The story of Johnny Appleseed was also condemned as "sad and dark," Greek and Roman mythology for depicting the goddess Venus naked, and textbooks explaining the effects of hurricanes as too violent for first graders. But one of the oddest crusades of the group is against a children's picture book on seahorses, which they believe, according to Weill, "is too sexy.""

Galileo?

Now I lay me down to sleep. I pray the Lord my soul to keep. If I should die before I wake, I pray the Lord my soul to take.

And God, pleas don't ever make me live in Tennessee.

Who am I to look down?

If given that choice, I suppose I'd be an onanonist.

 

In a related matter. I found these old home movies of Lady Bird.  Very pretty, sort of Texas High Society 1941.  What a gal!

I tried to queue it to the second movie that she's in at 3:01.

Bits and pieces that have washed up on my computer screen:

 

I lived in a houseboat for a while and started seeing the girl next door...Eventually, we drifted apart.

 

My boyfriend tried to make me have sex on the hood of his Honda Civic...I refused. If I'm going to have sex, it is going to be on my own Accord.

A man tried to sell me a coffin today...I told him, that's the last thing I need.

The neighborhood barber just got arrested for selling drugs...We had been his customers for 8 years. We had no idea he was a barber.

100 years ago everyone had a horse and only the rich had cars. Nowadays everyone has a car and only the rich have horses...Oh how the stables have turned.

My boyfriend was dying. I was by his bedside when he said something with a weak voice, "There's something I must confess."..."Shhh," I said "There's nothing to confess. Everything is alright."..."No, I must die in peace," he said, "I had sex with your sister, your best friend, and your co-worker"..."I know" I whispered, "That's why I poisoned you... Now close your eyes."

Did you hear about McDonald's trying to get into the high-end steakhouse market?...It was a Big McSteak.

Trump Extremists Brought Numerous Guns on January 6th, Evidence Shows

Rioters at the Capitol carried concealed pistols, allegedly stockpiled weapons nearby, and called for overthrowing the US government.

You can do your own primary research here:

https://www.justice.gov/usao-dc/capitol-breach-cases

According to official arrest records of those at the Capitol, exactly one was carrying a firearm. The one rioter carrying firearms was Christopher Alberts, who was also wearing body armor, and who was released on his own recognizance on Jan. 7. 

It has been confirmed at least one federal informant was in the scrum on Jan. 6. Other arrest records indicate informants were involved, but this cannot be confirmed, due to the use of cryptonyms. Informant "T-1" and so on. 

There is a long, long history of authorities and allied media exaggerating the threats posed by "domestic subversives" and "foreign enemies." I sense a replay here.

Daily Beast goes after Facebook (this joining the Wall Street Journal--- yes, the WSJ--- in bashing Facebook for hosting misinformation and hate messaging. 

I hope it goes without saying I oppose any form of violence or hate messaging, and as for misinformation and disinformation---well, my guess is 99% of misinformation and disinformation you read or see comes from the established legacy media and government, not from pitiful, anti-establishment outsiders. 

But that 1% of information not controlled by establishment platforms? That is going to get snuffed out too. 

The scrum on Jan. 6 means we must have much more censoring online and a much bigger police state.  Liz Cheney says so, and so does Nancy Pelosi.  

You see where this headed?

REVEALED: Mike Flynn hid $200K payments for Middle East nuclear plan before joining White House

by Travis Gettys October 04, 2021

https://www.rawstory.com/michael-flynn-2655217298/

“Michael Flynn received $200,000 in undisclosed payments for consulting work in the Middle East before joining Donald Trump's administration.

The retired U.S. Army general was paid for his work in 2014 and 2015 on a plan to build 40 nuclear power plants in the Middle East, which never came to fruition but would have involved companies from Canada, France, Russia and the U.S. constructing and managing nuclear plants in Arab nations, reported the Dutch newspaper NRC Handelsblad.”

 

Gee, what could go wrong?
