Call to Action: No tax dollars for ALA groomers
By John Labriola - The Citrus County Library Advisory Board will meet this Tuesday to discuss the library system's proposed 2023-24 budget. The $4.2 million budget, which is funded by property taxes, pays for the operation and upkeep of the county's five libraries, including staff salaries, book purchases, periodical subscriptions and building maintenance.
membership dues for the American Library Association (ALA), the far-left organization that has become notorious for its aggressive promotion of "drag queen story hours" and sexually explicit LGBT materials targeting children.
The ALA's current president is self-proclaimed "Marxist lesbian" Emily Drabinski, who has a long track record of advocating for the "queering" of public libraries. Her academic works include "Queering the Catalog: Queer Theory and the Politics of Correction" and "Gendered S(h)elves: Body and Identity in the Library," in which she discusses an experience she had as a 14-year-old girl when she came across a library book with a "fantastic queer sex" scene that awakened her to lesbian desires.
The ALA's website devotes an entire page to resource links and "toolkits" on how librarians can organize a "drag queen story hour" for children at their library.
Republican U.S. Sens. Marco Rubio, Kevin Cramer and Mike Braun recently called for federal funds to the ALA to be halted and demanded the government investigate the organization for advising libraries to discriminate against Christian book publisher Brave Books, which publishes author/actor Kirk Cameron's children's books.
A growing number of conservative counties and state library commissions across the U.S. have moved to cut ties with the ALA over its radical LGBT grooming agenda, including Campbell County, Wyo., Midland County, Tex., and the Montana and Texas state library commissions.
If you believe Citrus County taxpayers should stop being forced to subsidize the ALA's perverted campaign to sexualize America's children into homosexuality and transgenderism, join fellow citizens in demanding an end to ALA membership dues at the Citrus County Library Advisory Board meeting on Tuesday, Aug. 22, at 8 a.m. in Room 166 of the Lecanto Government Building, 3600 W Sovereign Path, Lecanto, FL 34461.
Just Say No to LGBT grooming in the libraries!
