Reason & Quietude On The Left: Heheheheee!

In Communist nations book banning was one of the first things ordered by the leadership. After, of course, the murder of opposition figures. No way the leaders were about to allow thoughts to be published or promulgated that went against the Holy Doctrine of Marx & Engels, and later Lenin, Stalin, & Mao. Or against whichever blood-thirsty Dictator had come to power. So books were banned. By order of the government.

Our own government has, from time to time, advocated the banning of books. Usually these have been books that were seditious in nature, or advocated acts of treason. We all are a little leery of the publishing of books that explain in detail the making of bombs, poisons, and so forth. Yet, the Left in this country has always fought tooth-and-nail to allow such dangerous literature to be published. They have been far less vigorous in their defense of the rights of those who would publish books in support of Conservative voices and ideas. Ever-ready to protest any attempt by anyone to remove a book from any library, no matter how warped the ideas within, the Left is usually silent when the ideas are not sufficiently radical. “Bomb Manuals, Yes! Bibles, No!”

From Newsmax: “Two New Jersey Democrats are pushing to have Ann Coulter's new book "Godless: The Church of Liberalism," banned from all bookstores in their state because she criticized four 9/11 widows known as ‘the Jersey Girls.’

In a joint press release issued Friday, New Jersey Assemblywomen Joan Quigley and Linda Stender say they want New Jersey retailers to ‘ban the sale of [Coulter's] book throughout the state.’

‘Ann Coulter's criticism of 9-11 widows, whose only desire since the attacks have been to repair their shattered lives and protect other families from the horrors they have experienced, is motivated purely by petty greed and hate,’ the two Democrats complained.

‘Coulter's vicious characterizations and remarks are motivated by greed and her desire to sell books . . . She is a leech trying to turn a profit off perverting the suffering of others.’”

There you have it! Ann Coulter’s ideas go against the wisdom of these two harridans of the Democrat Party, so her book is to be banned in New Jersey! As if New Jersey isn’t a big enough joke throughout the US, we now have elected officials pushing book-banning because they don’t like the ideas contained within.

Idiots! Betcha neither of these deep thinkers have ever complained about Jesse or Al. I would bet they never denounced the hate-filled blitherings of Louis Farrakhan. But Ann Coulter? Well, let’s get her banned! The leadership of the Democratic Party routinely call the Republicans the most vile things, but this isn’t hate-filled speech to these two New Jersey blockheads, is it?

From Newsmax, again: “Quigley and Stender conclude:

‘No one in New Jersey should buy this book and allow Ann Coulter to profit from her hate-mongering. We are asking New Jersey retailers statewide to stand with us and express their outrage by refusing to carry or sell copies of Coulter's book. Her hate-filled attacks on our 9-11 widows has no place on New Jersey bookshelves.’”

Ignorant and foolish, these two witches would advocate silencing the ideas they cannot accept, or even understand. And I’d bet that neither of these Einsteins of the New Jersey Legislature have not even read her book. Betcha they based all of this on the warped maunderings of the MSM. Can I get an ‘Amen’?

Sheesh! What a pair of rubes!
One wonders what they'll say the next time some concerned parent wants a gay-advocacy book removed from their child's second-grade classroom. Will they support the parents? Or will they denounce those parents as hate-mongering, right-wing, religious loonies? Betcha I know! ; )

The fact that there is a call to ban any book is a shameful thing... Forgive me for being blunt, but; This is America, for heaven's sake, not Nazi Germany, or any of it's wannabe's!

Aren't these the same women who said Ann Coulter should just go ahead and commit suicide because it would be best for everyone?

Along with Das Kapital. LOL

Banning books is idiotic. But putting them in a place the youngsters can't reach is understandable. The two are not the same thing, even though the Left likes to pretend they are.

The idea that someone speaking to - supposed - adults, about whatever, is so dangerous - or hateful, in their idiom - is antithetical to American thought. Only on the fringes of the political spectrum is 'hate-speech' a reality. For the rest of us, using the 'N'-word, or referring to a woman using the 'c'-word, or calling a white a 'cracker' or 'honky' is distasteful, uncalled-for, and reason to avoid a person. For the radical tyrants of the Left, use of the 'N'-word or 'c'-word is a call for a death sentence. The disconnect with reality is startling!

Thus, banning a book - even the call to do so - on a governmental level, should start the alarms ringing and the red flags waving.

As a conservative, I loathe the idea of banning books! As a bibliophile I find it the act of an insane person.

Was that too over-the-top? ;)

Interesting that the people who go around screaming that Bush and Republicans are Nazis seem to act more like Nazis than any Republican ever could.

This NewsMax article not only misrepresents a call for a boycott as a call for a “ban”, it contains a blatant lie. The actual press release
does *not* say “ban the sale of her book throughout the state”, it says “boycott the sale of her book throughout the state”. The text as given here has been altered.

Dan, perhaps so, but from the same site comes this comment: "Quigley and Stender's original press release used the word "ban", not "boycott", in both the title and the body of the text. The word "boycott" was edited into the release (both here and on the Assembly Democratic website) either on Monday the 12th or Tuesday the 13th.

Perhaps they did not bother to read their own press release before it was distributed. And only afterwards did their political handlers inform them that what they were advocating violated the first amendnment.

Or perhaps their first instinct is to use the power of the government to silence their enemies."

I'll stand by the post as written. And frankly, since the Left seems to think a boycott is only legal when they put out the call, not when the Right calls for a boycott, and since the LEft tries to use the boycott to destroy those who disagree with them, I think 'ban'/'boycott' are pretty interchangeable here. We both know what the Assemblywomen are pushing, don't we?

We have yet to hear the same outrage when Mother Sheehan has spouted her hateful rhetoric, have we? I guess the Assemblywomen have not gotten their talking points about that, eh?

I grew up in New Jersey. As soon as I was old enough to make up my own mind where I wanted to live, I left. I've never looked back.
