Obama Comes Out Against Parent Attempts To Keep Highly Sexualized “LGBTQ+” Books Out Schools, Calls It “Banning”

Obama Comes Out Against Parent Attempts To Keep Highly Sexualized “LGBTQ+” Books Out Schools, Calls It “Banning”

Libs of TikTok, retweeting content from some challenged LGBTQ+ books, asked, ‘Why does Obama want your kids to read porn like this in school?’

Former President Barack Obama attracted controversy after he penned a letter criticizing books “being challenged by people who disagree with certain ideas or perspectives,” citing books “often written by or featur[ing] people of color, indigenous people, and members of the LGBTQ+ community.”

Several conservative Twitter accounts immediately took the former president to task with examples of LGBTQ+ books frequently challenged for their “pornographic content.”

These accounts highlighted books like Doing It!: Let’s Talk About Sex, Flamer, This Book Is Gay, and Gender Queer: A Memoir, three of which appear on the American Library Association’s list of 2022’s most challenged books because they are “claimed to be sexually explicit.”

According to the PEN America’s Index of School Book Bans, these books have been banned a combined 65 times. PEN America claims Gender Queer is “[t]he most frequently banned book” and “has been called ‘obscene and pornographic’ by the groups who lobby for its removal.”

Conservative commentator Dinesh D’Souza offered some insight into why these LGBTQ+ books have so frequently faced challenges:

D’Souza asked the former president whether any of these books “shaped how [he] experience[d] the world:

Conservative account Libs of TikTok, retweeting the letter, asked why the former president would “want your kids to read porn like this in school?”

Conservative commentator Matt Walsh offered a tongue-in-cheek take on the former president’s letter, proclaiming that “Barack Obama has finally come out as gay”:

The conservative Canadian news magazine The Post Millennial also ridiculed the former president’s statement, retweeting his letter with graphic, albeit censored, pictures from Gender Queer:

we are having this issue in my very conservative, Christian (22 churches for a town of 3500) NorId community.

there is a move to create an either-or fallacy. It is EITHER this OR that. Not the thing in between

Those that object to our petition to MOVE explicit books to the adult section are saying we want to BAN them. Nope. That has not ONCE crossed our lips or pens or fingers. We are just asking that they be removed from the CHILDRENS section of the library. I do not care what age-appropriate the publisher says a book is. If it is explicit =, it is not a children or youth book.

That is the proper term to use when specific books are forbidden in schools and libraries. Don’t deny it, own it. Sexually explicit books should not be made available to public school students on the taxpayers’ dime.

    The hypocrisy of the left these days is actually fun to watch. They go max hysteria about ‘banning books” right up until the part where they are forced to defend the pornographic content of books like ‘Gender Queer’.

    Cherokee County School District Chairwoman says a parent is “out of order” for reading sexually obscene material that the district permits in the school library.

    Out of order in the School Board meeting but just fine for the school library? Explain that to me.

    Then explain how those books got approved for the library in the first place and by whom.

Pagans acting like pagans is a surprise? The surprise is how long they were in the closet.

    If all else fails, blame the Pagans.

    Meantime, I see all manner of Christian denominations and Jewish synagogues going against the teachings of their own texts, often openly embracing the more radical and flamboyant aspects of the “gay community”, or this trans-sexual nonsense.

    Point the blame where much of it belongs, please. I am willing to be you never knowingly met a Pagan in your life.

      Plenty of blame to spread around. A relative of mine claims paganism. She has a trans kid and a girl who took a boy in a dress to the prom. I have a coworker that also claims it but I think he is mostly just an atheist who is making his wife happy. I would also say the full embrace radical and flamboyant LGBT++ is a falling into sin by those churches. All the sinners are welcome. But the sins should not be encouraged and the unrepentant sinners should not be leading.

      That said Romans 7:19
      For the good that I would do, I do not; but the evil which I would not do, that I do.

      So we will always be lead by sinners and backsliders.

      anyone who endorses sodomy is endorsing paganism, no matter what they call themselves

    Martin in reply to geronl. | July 22, 2023 at 8:55 pm

    Obama is not a Pagan. His altar has a mirror on it.

Calls it ‘banning.’ That’s because it is banning, barry.

Why does Obama want your kids to read porn like this in school?

To paraphrase Auron MacIntyre, “It ain’t rocket surgery, folks. They’re just evil and want to diddle little children.”

We are at war. Prepare accordingly.

I always thought B. Hussein Obama (PBHN) was a little pervy. Now I know why.

    “Barack Hussein Obama” (or whoever he really is) is one of the greatest scams in history. And who ever he is, he is a closet homosexual, who is married to a transvestite.

    Anti-American forces puting that useful weasel in office was akin to Pearl Harbor x 100. The damage that asshole did to our country is likely permanent.

These books are not being banned. They can still be published, still go to bookstores and county libraries, etc. Parents don’t want sexually explicit books in school, any more than they want teachers to talk about their own sex lives to these kids.

    Every library has always curated the books it maintains as part of its collection. Obviously these should not be in elementary, middle school/Jr High libraries. They simply are not age appropriate for kids that young. A reasonable discussion could be had about their inclusion at a high school library. Unfortunately the leftists don’t want a reasonable conversation about anything. As a result we are forced into easy to apply rules without any grey area to be exploited; remove them from all school libraries.

    alaskabob in reply to Valerie. | July 22, 2023 at 7:43 pm

    They are trying to capture the language… again… and create its definitions. SOP. These forms of books

    Gosport in reply to Valerie. | July 25, 2023 at 3:16 am

    Those books are also being purchased with taxpayer funds. Which makes them absolutely open to question by those taxpayers.

I wonder if Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn are still on the shelves in those libraries. The left wing started this “book-banning” by removing these kinds of books.

    4rdm2 in reply to OldProf2. | July 23, 2023 at 4:19 am

    That should indeed be part of the response. Ask about a list of that sort of book and if they have been removed from the shelves or ‘banned’.

Perhaps, Mr Obama can give a reading of one of these books so all Americans can get on the same page.

Obama is a culture arsonist, the main culprit in the degradation of American values that may finally be ebbing as the extremists expose themselves.

Guy is always all wee wee-ed up about something or other. Don’t know what his problem is this time. Most overprivileged whiner in history.

Who would have imagined that the satirists and sketch comedians who brought us 1974’s THE GROOVE TUBE were actually predicting the future

– – – – – – –

Does anybody else think it odd that of alllll the things that this guy could opine about publicly, this is one of the topics he chose?

Why would any parent allow their children to be under the care and influence of American k-12 teachers/administrators/librarians/etc

E Howard Hunt | July 23, 2023 at 7:33 am

I hope they stock my favorite Obama book- Barack Obama and Larry Sinclair. Larry was the original whistle BLOWER.

Note to Obama: GFY

The vile and insufferable narcissist-incompetent, Obama, doing what he does best — obnoxiously and sanctimoniously lecturing Americans on how he’s allegedly so much smarter and morally superior to everyone else, while distorting and dishonestly framing the issue, in his typical, greasy demagogue/hustler style.

And to think, Americans put that preening red diaper baby in office twice.

So I should donate porno magazine subscriptions? Because we wouldn’t want schools to censor explicit sex acts even though such things do pass Constitutional muster as set forth in Ginsburg v New York (1968).

Obama is always pushing on the left edge of the Overton window. Some people think he’s moderate because he’s sensitive to where that window lies, and his messages are wordsmithed and very strategic. But he is a community organizer, a Marxist, with all that implies. He only tries to appear moderate because that way he plans to get even more success in destroying our system.

    guyjones in reply to artichoke. | July 24, 2023 at 10:30 am

    Yes. Contrived and fallacious trappings of alleged “moderation” constitute costumes and window-dressing, for the vile Dumb-o-crats — theatrical props to conceal the intrinsic and obnoxious totalitarianism of their ethos and agenda.

    M Poppins in reply to artichoke. | July 25, 2023 at 6:34 pm

    everyone should understand by now that there’s no such thing as a moderate

thalesofmiletus | July 24, 2023 at 12:45 pm

Yes, please banish pornography from children’s libraries.

President Lightbringer’s driving global warming again, what with torching all those straw men.

He’s got two tricks. The other one isn’t as good.

Let’s make this simple, we’ll try to read, what’s in the textbooks, on MSNBC. When they tell you it’s against the rules, then say you don’t want you kids to have it forced on them in school. I doubt this will last long.

Obama’s cook did not share the former President’s opinion.

The books in the Twits were written in 2014, 2019, 2020, and 2021. A book the Great O read when he was 59 really shaped his life?
