Once upon a time, in 2015, a writer in San Francisco named Michelle Tea got the idea for “Drag Queen Story Hour”: men in full drag reading children’s books to kids and parents in programs aimed at providing “positive and unabashedly queer role models.”

It looks to me the children are trying to get away:

Ah, saw the AP ref, and immediately know the slant of the article.
Confirmed it times 100.
Journalism has discovered lows where no man/woman/whatever has ever gone before.

Ah, Slime Trek.

Oops, that’s “knew” not “know”. I don’t want to be classified as someone as stupid as a journalist.

“positive and unabashedly queer role models.”

A sin that cries out to Heaven for vengeance.

that is sick. sure having been born in the 50s and raised in the 60s and 70s we had our hippy freaks but truly scary monsters roam our streets today. Sadly, democrats want to make these monsters mainstream and they’ve been doing it for 50 years.

But just imagine this reaction from these liberal library groups, if a group such as Focus on the Family wanted to have a storytime with Bible stories or otherwise about traditional values. Then this talk of diversity and love and acceptance would not be criteria used to determine how outside groups get access to the library.

There was a time they would have been burned alive for subjecting innocent children to this, and I mean all involved.

Official: Library Budget Cut Not A Retaliation For Drag Queen Story Hour

"A proposed $500,000 cut to the Mobile Public Library's budget next fiscal year is not a retaliatory action for the library's hosting of a controversial Drag Queen Story Hour event next month, a city official said."

But that’s not child abuse.

In Lafayette, Louisiana, west of New Orleans, the president of the local public library board resigned amid debate over plans to hold “Drag Queen Story Hour.” Mayor Joel Robideaux has indicated he may seek to cancel the Oct. 6 program.

If both the president of the library and the mayor are against it, who was the person to make the decision to have it?

“So how was school today?”

“Great, Mom. We had Drag Queen Story Hour today!”

Name a state that Trump won where this exchange would be OK...

What would the reaction be, if a traditional values group, such as Focus on the Family, pushed to have story time in The Castro library, and say they are doing it to provide positive traditional role models? What would the liberal reaction be to that?

Even the children know those are freaks.

Sounds very Barack and Michelle Obama-ish.

That crap will not be tolerated in my town. If they do this in some other library within a reasonable driving distance, I will go to bitch slap the wigs off their queer heads, and toss them out the door.

I am willing and able to face any charges. ENOUGH!

Only “conservative” towns are disgusted by this?

What kind of reprobate mentality would not be disgusted?

Teresa Elberson, the Director of the Library, apparently made the decision. Most of the politicians are running for the tall grass, avoiding the issue like ebola. Rep. Clay Higgins has made his disapproval known. The mayoral criteria of “appropriate” and “meets the needs of the community” fall flat, but so far, it is still on the library schedule.

In additional to all the reasons for why not in the article, the accompanying drag queen photos look like Marti Gras costumes gone terribly wrong.

OK, here is what I propose. Since it’s now acceptable to be whatever “sex” you want to be, why should this apply only to ‘gender’. Why can’t a group of MEN decide that they are between three and six years of age and demand to sit in on this event? Fill the room and act like three to six year olds to the extent that the perverts run for their lives the hell out of town. Use their twisted ways against them. Who wants to start “Toddlers For Trump”?

No real women would dress like that.

Always watch the hands when pigs like that are touching little boys.Thankfully little girls are as safe as kittens around these pigs...safe at least from the standpoint of molestation.

Next Saturday, I’m hoping to be at the Mobile library protest with the Common Sense Campaign Tea Party. They’re a great group of people who’ve had me speak at a few of their rallies back in the TEA Party heyday.

This is demonically sick, these reprobates targeting little babies and children! Certainly, shame on them, but DOUBLE shame on any “parents” who take their little ones to such an evil display!
