    J. Michael Luttig is a dyed in the wool conservative and he is issuing an unvarnished warning that Trump and his allies are “executing that blueprint” to overturn the next election in 2024 “in open and plain view of the American public.”

    This angers me so much. Libraries are there for everyone.

    Book bullies attempt to hide our diversity
    Libraries, bookstores deal with patrons trying to keep titles on Black and LGBTQ people out of sight.
    By Neil Steinberg Jun 16, 2022, 5:48pm CDT

    When Anderson’s Bookshop in Naperville announced June 9 that someone is plucking books from their displays and hiding them in the store, they didn’t specify what sort of books are being taken.

    I assumed the stashed volumes were books about queer youth and trans acceptance and such, the segment of human behavior currently singled out for special harassment by those who feel entitled to establish limits on human nature that maximize their own comfort.

    But that isn’t the kind of book being targeted.

    “Any book with a cover showing a person of color on it gets covered up,” explained Ginny Wehrli-Hemmeter, director of events and marketing at Anderson’s, one of the largest independent bookstores in the Chicago area

    About 50 books have been found tucked behind other books. Police have been notified; a man, caught in the act, was confronted.

    Nor was my next thought — that this must be a freakish anomaly — correct. Can people really be offended by the sight of a children’s book about Jackie Robinson? In 2022? This has to be the handiwork of some lone-wolf, west-suburban hater indulging in repairable acts of racism, I figured.

    Sadly, it is not.

    While other large independent bookstores in and around Chicago — the Book Stall in Winnetka, Powell’s in Hyde Park — do not report similar vigilante mischief, it is endemic at public libraries around the country.

    “The books overwhelmingly being targeted deal with the lives and experiences of LGBTQ persons,” said Deborah Caldwell-Stone, director of the office for intellectual freedom of the Chicago-based American Library Association.

    But it is by no means limited to them. The lives of Black persons also are a particular focus, she added, “under the false idea that books about Black people are some kind of ‘critical race theory.’ There is a lot of rhetoric that’s being used to vilify these materials. It’s truly tragic.”\


    Caldwell-Stone said rather than being the acts of isolated vigilantes, these book purges are being organized in plain view. She pointed to the “Hide the Pride,” effort by CatholicVote, encouraging people to check out books involving gender issues en masse from public libraries to avoid the risk that a child might see one.

    “They have a website, a social media presence,” Caldwell-Stone said. “It’s stunning to see they have this idea that public libraries are just for them, and they should take actions to sanitize the library from materials that reflect the lives of gay, queer or transgendered people. It’s a real effort to silence the voices of communities that are finally finding a place on the public stage in our society so that we can understand the experiences of others.”

    “Not everything that calls itself ‘Catholic’ is in fact part of our church,” said Paula Waters chief communications officer for the archdiocese. “CatholicVote is not a Catholic organization, It’s not a part of the church, or sanctioned by the church or has any relationship to the church. It has no standing. It’s a PAC that appears to be well-funded.”

    Mike Pence is not a hero.

    He had good legal advice and refused to jeopardize his freedom despite four years of being “loyal” to Trump and never standing up to him. This time Trump went way too far and Pence was at least wise enough to see the dire consequences, mainly for himself.
