Ok cupcakes, allow me to tell you one little thing: THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS BOOK BANNING ANYWHERE IN THE US.
A bookstore in Florida or anywhere else can carry any of the books in the list and you can buy them. If you are too lazy to go to the store, you can get them in Amazon or any online bookstore and have them delivered to your door without the fear of the FBI or local yokels coming and making you wear steel bracelets.
When you hear or red ZOMG BANNED BOOKS is nothing more than a political and merchandising campaign. Don’t believe me?
Thhis is from Learn About Banned Books | Powell’s Books (powells.com). Oh yes, they sell books online and at their physical location in Portland, Oregon. And if the store is familiar to readers of this blog, is because I posted about them when they caved to the pressure of Antifa and removed Andy Ngo’s book Unmasked: Inside Antifa’s Radical Plan to Destroy Democracy from their store because it was “fascist”, but it seems other books by assorted fascist are not an issue for them to sell.
Here is a bit confirming by point
Powell’s Books in Portland, Ore., closed early each day this week after protestors plastered signs on the store’s windows. The protesters are opposing the store’s offer of pre-orders of conservative journalist Andy Ngo’s book Unmasked: Inside Antifa’s Radical Plan to Destroy Democracy on its website. The book will be published in February by Center Street, the politically conservative imprint of Hachette Book Group.
On Monday, Powell’s Tweeted, “This book will not be placed on our shelves. We will not promote it. That said, it will remain in our online catalog. We carry a lot of books we find abhorrent, as well as those that we treasure.”
But I guess that ban does not count.
In this day and age of internet sales of dead tree book and EBooks delivered instantly to your favorite device, the concept of banning books has simply ceased to exist. Anybody telling you otherwise is full of political mushroom-growing medium.
