"An ABC of Equality"

Obscene material pushed on minors may not be the worst of it.  This is the education being programmed to ages 0 to 5 in Wyoming libraries -- in a picture book.  Placed on shelves for the 2-5 year old age group.

Kirkus Review of "An ABC of Equality:"

Social-equity themes are presented to children in ABC format.

Terms related to intersectional inequality, such as "class," "gender," "privilege," "oppression," "race," and "sex," as well as other topics important to social justice such as "feminism," "human being," "immigration," "justice," "kindness," "multicultural," "transgender," "understanding," and "value" are named and explained.  There are 26 in all, one for each letter of the alphabet.  Colorful two-page spreads with kid-friendly illustrations present each term.  First the term is described:  "Belief is when you are confident something exists even if you can't see it.  Lots of different beliefs fill the world, and no single belief is right for everyone"  On the facing page it concludes:  "B is for BELIEF / Everyone has different beliefs."  It is hard to see who the intended audience for this little board book is.  Babies and toddlers are busy learning the names for their body parts, familiar objects around them, and perhaps some basic feelings like happy, hungry, and sad; slightly older preschoolers will probably be bewildered by explanations such as:  "A value is an expression of how to live a belief.  A value can serve as a guide for how you behave around other human beings.  / V is for VALUE / Live your beliefs out loud."

Adults will do better skipping the book and talking with their children.  (Board book. 4-6)

Amazon Reviews by people who purchased "An ABC of Equality:"

Transgender Board Book

We were surprised by this book and returned this product because it's heavily focused on transgender, for a baby board book... We were looking for more of a diversity supported and anti-racism board book.

Indoctrination not education.

Totally inappropriate for little children.  "Social" and "political" topics for youngsters? I can't imagine.  More like an adult book in a children's format.

Baby's First Book of Progressive Wokeness

I bought this book thinking how lovely it sounded, but seriously, some of those descriptions of gender choice and the LBGTQ sexuality are so inappropriate for a little child.  This is more of a Baby's First Book of Progressive Wokeness, rather than an ABC.  How is one supposed to explain sexuality in ANY form to a 2yo? What kind of person would even want to do that? My plan is more along the lines of seeing a lesbian couple out in public and saying, "Look at that cute baby! He has two mommies, isn't that nice?" We don't need to drag sexuality into this quite yet.

Know your libraries and keep an eye on what they're up to.

Dan Kleinman started raising awareness of the ALA, and is considered an expert on the anti-American activities of the American Library Association.  His blog archive dates back to 2008, and contains articles even older than that.

In 2003 the American Library Association took it to Federal Court that they wanted to allow kids access to internet sex content.  As I understand it, the Supreme Court ruled they couldn't do it with taxpayer money.

The Iowa Standard

The Iowa Standard prints great news from an American stance and many of the articles apply to Wyoming as well, as the same books they are posting about are in our Wyoming libraries.

The Iowa Standard sends a newsletter that highlights articles and shares miscellaneous information such as:

On Day 1 we asked people if they trusted the mainstream media.  On Day 2 we asked if they have confidence in the 2020 Presidential Election results.

240 people said NO they do not trust the mainstream media.
16 people said YES they do.

342 people said NO they do not have confidence in the 2020 Presidential Election results.
63 people said YES they have confidence in the 2020 Presidential Election results.

The most encouraging thing I can report back to you guys from the fair is you are not alone.  And every time someone else uses their voice and their freedom of speech to stand up for their conservative beliefs, it emboldens others to do the same.

The silent majority is no longer silent.  But we're definitely still the majority -- especially here in Iowa.  

We are still the majority in Wyoming also, and to borrow from an original feminist anthem (ironically, one of the songwriters on "I Am Woman" [1971] was a man).  Songwriters:  Ray Burton / Helen Reddy.

We are Americans, Hear Us Roar, In numbers too big to ignore!

I discovered a new website that I want to share with you which is called Wyoming Principles of Freedoms.

We're taking back our country one county, maybe one board at a time.

God Bless Americans and Freedom Lovers across the world.

Thank you for reading. The purpose of my campaigns is to highlight corruption and to get assistance from anyone who is able and willing to help return Gillette and Campbell County and Wyoming to American Ideals, and hopefully a culture that applies the law equally to all citizens regardless of position or social class. Thank you so much for the efforts you are making and have already made. Please forward to everyone that you know who might be interested in the information I share. God Bless You, and God Bless America.
