Must be either a science or a history textbook.
MLF is one of those “Everything that’s not explicitly allowed is forbidden” groups. The US constitution is the other way ‘round: Everything that’s not explicitly called out in the constitution is up to the states to handle.
Mom brought back Tropic of Cancer from their trip to San Francisco since we couldn’t get it in Southern California at that time.
This is what happens when the supply chain fails and some women can’t get supplies to make smores. . . . /S
Autumn, a glass of wine, a warm fire and a good book. Who could ask for more?
now, we know from whence those Trump idiots came. One would have pity on them if they hadn’t try to destroy America.
“…and the only light is from the fire of the burning books.” from “Out of Control” by Jefferson Starship, “Winds of Change” (1982)
It would seem those screaming the loudest about their freedoms are quite willing to take away everyone else’s freedom.
An indoor BBQ, illustrating the opposite of knowledge and intelligence.
Liberty. Sure. Pull the other leg. It has bells on.
I see this cartoon as a reference to the book burnings in Germany in the early Nazi era. I am possibly wrong on this, but I’m also surprised that no one else has thus far commented on this possibility.
—) One of the books that might give the group pause is the novel “Set This House on Fire,” by William Styron. Not only is the title apropos to the cartoon, but to our country at this time. The title is taken from one of John Donne’s epigraphs —
“His mercies hath applied His judgments, and hath shaked the house, this body, with agues and palsies, and set this house on fire with fevers and calentures, and frightened the master of the house, which is my soul, with horrors, and heavy apprehensions, and so made an entrance into me.”
“What this country needs… what this great land of ours needs is something to happen to it. Something ferocious and tragic, like what happened to Jericho or the cities of the plain – something terrible I mean, son, so that when the people have been through hellfire and the crucible, and have suffered agony enough and grief, they’ll be people again, human beings, not a bunch of smug contented cows rooting at the trough."
That sounds similar to the message the far right-wing might hope for So, burn or not to burn? Whoops — it has sex scenes, so burn!
Like all well-funded GOP “grassroots” organizations …
The letter sounds passionate and personal.
It is motivated, the author explains, by a desire to “speak up for what is best for my kids.” And it fervently conveys the author’s feelings to school leaders: “I do not believe little kids should be forced to wear masks, and I urge you to adopt a policy that allows parental choice on this matter for the upcoming school year.”
But the heartfelt appeal is not the product of a grassroots groundswell. Rather, it is a template drafted and circulated this week within a conservative network built on the scaffolding of the Koch fortune and the largesse of other GOP megadonors.
Groups like these are direct descendants of the Nazis.
Whiners who just can’t take the truth about American and world history protest to ban certain books! Just because they don’t like a line or the subject matter. What really kills me is schools, and libraries CAVE TO THESE IDIOTS!
If you don’t like it, don’t read it or buy it.
The most innocent books,novels and etc were taken off the shelves because one person whined about it.
Schools, libraries,and institutions need to GET A SPINE!
America has lost its backbone to the handful of protesters who don’t have a life. Just because their opinion differs, everyone must suffer.
First, they burn books, then they burn people.
Yes, they want the “Liberty” to tell EVERYONE ELSE exactly what to think.
Its founders, Tiffany Justice and Tina Descovich, the statement reads, are “moms on a mission to stoke the fires of liberty. Burn baby burn.
Every mom should welcome explicit, graphic pornography in elementary school libraries. It is the cradle of Democratic Party thought.
It’s ok. The carbon monoxide will get them.
A book burns . . . Humanity loses.
I’ve said it once and I’ll say it again: this is how Nazi Germany started.
Soooo, they never read the warning about “outdoor use only”?

I see Silly Billy tossed out quite the straw man argument.
As with 1984, Farenheit 451 is NOT an instruction manual.
Definitely MFL. Not a MILF among them.

Why aren’t they wearing their red hats!?
banning and burning books in the US predates the Nazis, so no need to invoke them.
From Wikipedia: Book censorship in the United States
During the 1600s, a typical form of book censorship in the United States was book burning. In October 1650, William Pynchon’s pamphlet, The Meritorious Price of Our Redemption, was criticized and promptly burned by the Puritan government. This book burning in Boston, Massachusetts is often referred to and even considered the “first book burning in America”
Do you know who else liked to burn books? The Nazis, Iran, China…
Freedom from emotional discomfort. Best part of the First Amendment.
The Turd Reich trolls are just trying to whore for attention by listing their obnoxious BS and inflammatory comments. Do not responds directly to them. Don’t feed the trolls. Let ’em starve for attention and pout.
To quote Henry Jones Sr “maybe they should try reading books instead of burning them”
For Halloween, they are disguised as “values voters.”
Good way to put themselves to sleep, via carbon monoxide poisoning…
If they want to have their little Fahrenheit 451 style party indoors, they really should consider opening that window. Otherwise they’ll soon receive Darwin’s new FAFO award.
Unfortunately, this sort of thing is no longer confined to the Right:
As a participant in the Berkeley Free Speech Movement of the sixties, I still hold to the principles we fought for then. I was disappointed to hear at the 50th Reunion that some current activists no longer do, that freedom of speech (and inquiry) has fallen to political correctness.
3…2…1…KABOOM! And 4 dead in the living room from using the ol’kettle grill IN THE HOUSE!!!!!
You just gotta adore those Talibangelical South Carolina Belles of Heaven Republican Women’s Club … well, nobody else does. They are so gosh-darned mad about all that porn on the e-internets machine that they want legislation mandating the installation of “filters” to block porn on computers. Aside from having some group of prudes somehow able to tell everybody what “porn” is, I don’t think it’s gonna fly, ’cause after all, the only thing worse than some pissed-off MAGA guy is a pissed-off MAGA guy unable to access porn on his computer.
Being the Hypocrites they are, they read the “Spicy” bits first.
How long before Texas tries to mandate that the entire history of the Civil War be taught using Disney’s “Song of the South” as the sole presentation?
It always fascinates me how groups stubbornly opposed to the concepts of Patriotism, Human Rights, Liberties, Justice and Freedom always idiotically incorporate those terms into their names, as if by having them as their name somehow magically makes them that thing instead of the staunch enemies of that thing.
With luck they’ll all succumb to carbon monoxide poisoning.
