Biden Says Juneteenth Is About Not ‘Banning’ Books

Original Article

Posted By: Imright, 6/19/2023 1:37:31 PM

President Joe Biden said Monday that Juneteenth is about “reading books, not banning them,” in an apparent reference to efforts to ban pornographic books from children’s libraries. “Juneteenth is about Americans feeling the progress we can make for America. It’s about remembering history, not erasing it. It’s about reading books, not banning them. That’s what great nations do, and we are a great nation,” the president said in a tweet.(Tweet) Biden has made his fight against book banning a key part of his reelection campaign, featuring a clip about the issue in his 2024 launch video.

It's kind of like Summer Kwanzaa. A hyped, semi-legitimate holiday. All part of the Global Marxist plan to destroy American identity. Also helps them forget our first Republican President: The Great Emancipator. Of course now, they have Zero: The Great Hallucinator.

NO books have been banned. No library can possibly purchase every book that has been published. And schools have limited funds and must choose carefully. The books these school libraries choose not to purchase can be bought on the open market and privately and they may be available at a public library. These books can be found and read.

Notice no one ever asks for the title and contents of the dang book. Besides that minor detail, no one tells the truth about the books. They are not banned. The trash books are moved to a different section. No one explains that. Remember when playboy magazine came out. The book was behind the cashier and covered. Only the name of the magazine could be seen. That was a time when children were protected and allowed to be kids. Also a time when others beliefs and opinions were respected. Now the Dems want things their way and only their way.

Sorry Joe, the holiday isn't about reading at all. But in fact if it was, Blacks might find out that the Dem Party is the party of slavery, segregation, Jim Crow. No, reading isn't part of Juneteenth.

Silly me; I had no idea that 'Juneteenth' was about books in any way, banning them or reading them. I thought it was about getting together for a big party / brawl and acting like a 'Chicago Weekend', only nationwide. I'm glad to hear that it is all about the pursuit of knowledge. Thanks for setting me straight, Joe.

Who ever said that Juneteenth was ever about burning books? From the looks of it in certain “communities” it appears that Juneteenth is much more about people who can’t read shooting other people!

I turned on my conservative talk radio station today and the host was not there today. Instead they had a show celebrating Juneteenth. Do they have a show celebrating Independence Day or Presidents Day? Suddenly this day becomes so important.

As a Black man who grew up in rural 70s and 80s I never heard of Juneteenth. Only when I joined the Navy and got stationed in Oakland CA in the early 90's did I find out about it. After that I didn't hear ANYTHING about it until our moron president made it another day off for the federal work force. I didn't care then and don't care now. Get back to me when the leftards care about the real holiday coming up next month.

Ron DeSantis still finds himself having to defend 'hogwash' claims against his second place campaign following reports of firings and strategy shake-ups. The Florida Governor pushed-back on Donald Trump's attacks on his campaign – specifically claiming that he has 'set money on fire' and has 'collapsed in polling' – and says the criticism comes because he is a 'threat' to the ex-President. Fox News host Harris Faulkner, however, made it clear during an interview Wednesday that she agrees with Trump that DeSantis' campaign is a 'mission failure.'

The op-ed, headlined, "How Joe Biden’s compassion for his son blew up in his face," argued that the president was partially responsible for his son Hunter’s personal struggles with drugs and other issues.

You know how bad it was when Rep. Dan Goldman (D-NY) was first out the door trying to spin away what Archer said. Among the things that Archer confirmed was that Joe Biden was on the speakerphone at multiple meetings and that he was the “big guy.” Incredibly, Goldman tried to deflect away from that, insisting the calls were after Beau Biden had died. Somehow, I’m thinking people aren’t going to buy that as an excuse. The Democrats can’t deflect away

FIRST ON FOX: Former President Trump was indicted Tuesday on charges stemming from Special Counsel Jack Smith's investigation into the Capitol riot on Jan. 6, 2021, Fox News Digital has learned. This is the second federal indictment the former president faces out of Smith’s investigation. Trump, who leads the 2024 GOP presidential primary field, has already pleaded not guilty to 37 counts related to his alleged improper retention of classified records from his presidency. Those charges include willful retention of national defense information, conspiracy to obstruct justice and false statements. Trump was charged with an additional three counts as part of a superseding indictment out of that probe last week.

Fox News’ Bret Baier shared how Republicans are describing the indictment for what it is: Democrats looking at a box of chocolates, trying to figure out what was the best box of chocolates to “prevent him from becoming president again.” That’s hitting the nail

Do you think this might be related to the inability of the military to meet recruiting goals in recent years? This is horrible news for the good men and women of our armed services but more importantly, it’s a national security issue. Low morale is not good for defense. The Hill reports: (Snip) The survey found 60 percent of Americans have confidence in the military, matching the lowest level since 1997. Confidence has not been lower since 1988, when it sunk to 58 percent.
