CBS Cries Over Sexual Grooming Books Being Banned in School Libraries

Breaking News

On Wednesday’s CBS Evening News, anchor Norah O’Donnell and correspondent Elaine Quijano whined that there’s been a “sharp rise in book bans in America’s schools and libraries” because of the sexually inappropriate content of the books which seek to push the left’s radical LGBTQ agenda on young defenseless children. 

Focusing in on the small town of Jamestown, Michigan, Quijano bemoaned that the town “is locked in a war over words. The battle is over these five books with LGBTQ themes.” 

Continuing her complaining, Quijano reported that a group called the Jamestown Conservatives had “led a successful drive to essentially defund the library.” “They want those books removed from the shelves,” she wailed. 

She then interviewed Larry Walton, the library board president who claimed it was heartbreaking that his library was “defunded” because it reportedly refused to remove sexually inappropriate books:

QUIJANO: Library board president Larry Walton opposes moving or removing the books, calling it censorship. 

WALTON: It’s heartbreaking to be associated with this situation. 

“Across the country, book banning in libraries and schools is gaining momentum. A recent study found more than 1600 books were banned in more than 5,000 schools in 32 states,” Quijano fretted. 

Quijano ended her report by noting “the final chapter here will be written in November when voters will again be asked to decide on funding and the fate of the library.” 

Actions have consequences. Parents shouldn’t have to tolerate their children being exposed to degeneracy and sexual indoctrination. CBS’s entire report made the library seem like the victims when it’s really the parents and children who are.
