WATCH Pro-Trumpers Get Tricked Into Agreeing The Bible Should Be Banned From Schools

All over the country, conservatives and right wingers are trying to have certain books banned from classrooms and school libraries because they insist the content of the books is inappropriate for young people.

NBC News compiled a list of 50 books that parents in Texas want removed from schools, including some that have impeccable literary credentials. Here’s a couple of examples:

“The Bluest Eye by Toni Morrison: This classic novel by the Nobel Prize-winning author Toni Morrison should be banned from schools, according to a parent in the Fort Worth suburb of Birdville, because it includes a graphic description of rape. 

“White Bird: A Wonder Story” by R.J. Palacio: A parent in the Spring Branch ISD said this graphic novel — about a Jewish teen living in France after Nazis seized power — should be banned because it’s “biased” and could lead to the “skewing of a young child’s mind.”

So exactly what is “acceptable” for young readers? The only possible solution would seem to be refusing to let young people read anything at all because they might encounter something that offends their parents.

But would the Bible be acceptable to those parents? Nope. Not even the “Good Book” gets a thumbs up from people who were interviewed by a group that calls itself the Good Liars, which consists of two guys, Jason Selvig and Davram Stiefler. They asked people if they thought the story of two daughters who get their father drunk (the story of Lot) and then have sex with him was something young people should read, according to the Daily Dot:

“There’s a book that we’ve seen that’s in libraries in lots of schools that features a story of two daughters having sex with their dad,” Jason Selvig said to a couple, one of whom was wearing a MAGA hat. 

In another clip, Davram Stiefler elaborates to a different women wearing an American flag pin: “They get their dad drunk to have sex with him.”

The reactions of all three people are strictly negative, with the couple immediately agreeing the book in question needs to be banned from schools.

“Why do kids need to read that?” MAGA Hat asks.

“That book is actually the Bible,” Stiefler tells the woman in the other clip, and suddenly, her whole demeanor changes. 

Think about it: Do you want your kids reading about incest and stoning people to death? Probably not. Which means you need to keep the Bible out of your house, the library, all churches, etc. Because someone might get the wrong idea and try to imitate that kind of behavior.

How sweet to see so much irony and hypocrisy wrapped in a neat package for the right-wing zealots to choke on.
