Rising Censorship

River Springs Charter Schools in California instructed librarians to remove Christian-themed publications as well as any books written by Christian authors or distributed by Christian publishers from the shelves. One supposes the next step would be to burn them.

Imagine, if you can, that a school ordered the removal of books by gay authors, black authors, or Muslim authors. The uproar would be monumental and the media would swarm like bees. The very idea of banning books usually brings outrage but removing Christian books is not even news-worthy.

It wasn’t just subject matter determining removal. Mere association with Christianity was the criteria being used and that brings this to a new level that should be frightening to all. It puts Christianity on the same progressive-deemed evil level as guns, smoking, virginity, and American tradition. It also ramps up the far-left’s censorship campaign.

Blind to its own hypocrisy, the far-left continually tries to censor opposing views while forcing their progressive agenda everywhere. In schools, many books with homosexual, pro-Islamic, or pro-abortion content are pushed onto students and parent’s attempts to remove them are met with indignant diatribes on free speech and diversity. Crosses, bibles, prayers, or even American flags, however, are not allowed because they “might” offend someone.

This rise in censorship was encouraged by Obama’s election. The far-left felt that one of theirs was now in the White House and, therefore, believed the majority agreed with their agenda and silencing of the opposition. Obama started speaking out against FOX News and progressed to the point where reporters now say the White House demands they change their reports to be more favorable to the administration.

From the LA Times refusing to print letters from global warming “deniers” to network news shows ignoring stories unfavorable to the administration, attempts at censorship by the left are increasing. A change in Washington is needed to stem the tide of censorship. Use your vote wisely or that, too, could end up censored.

    Self-centered conservatives who did not vote because “their guy” was not the GOP candidate are responsible for the censorship climate encouraged by Obama.

    It won’t stop if people don’t make their voices heard. Perhaps California is ripe for the picking? But if you value freedom you need to understand what is happening is the agenda of the left wing and if you keep giving them access and allow them to do these things, then you will have sold your freedoms away.
