Here is a photo for you. You probably have a copy of the same item.

This book was/is banned in Venezuela.

I bought this many many years ago when I went to college in the US, then I moved back to Venezuela taking it with me. Even prior to the socialist cockroaches running the country now, if you were caught with this or similar books, you were going to have a very nasty time in the hands of internal security and spend some extended time in their dungeons. Or they could just have said you were some sort of danger to the country and shoot you on the spot.

And yet, they could not stop me from owning one.

Banning books is impossible (ask the Soviets about samizdat) and that goes tenfold in the era of electronic publications.

What the stupid Lefties are claiming to be bans, are just the equivalent of movie rating system. Yet they make it sound like Republicans have an army of Guy Montages cruising libraries and schools setting books on fire and arresting teachers for having forbidden publications.

But I wonder what their reactions would be if I showed up at schools demanding to read Unintended Consequences, Enemies Foreign and Domestic, 1984, A Brave New World and even The Turner Diaries.

Or worse: The Bible.

Please, spare me the histrionics.

  1. Sounding like a broken record here, but leftists are children. Yep, adult sized, with a better vocabulary, but children nonetheless.
    And, what do children do when they do not get what they want? Throw a tantrum. Claim that Mommy HATES! them, and generally exaggerate to the Nth degree whatever “offense” led to the tantrum.
    Is restricting books with graphic depictions of homosexual sex to the adult section “banning” them? Not in any way. But, because they cannot get what they want (sexualizing children) they will make an overblown claim, throw their tantrum, and declare victory.

  2. You know what I can’t see in that display? The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn. Because leftists demand it be kept away from kids. And the presence of Roald Dahl books there is ironic, because it’s leftists who want his works bowdlerized.

Only one rule: Don't be a dick.
