California Progressives Now Launching Attack To Ban Books
This is logical to all people who identify as progressives. They try to eliminate all “non-progressive” speech and thought. History has shown us ultimately, they attempt to throw their ideological opponents into prison or something much worse.
See what happens when you don’t teach history in public schools? How can these fascists not realize what they are doing? Oh wait, I just might have just answered my own question.
There’s a California bill that could ban the sale of books advocating Christian sexual morality and theological orthodoxy? Seriously? Yes, seriously. A grotesquely unconstitutional bill is sailing through the California assembly: https://t.co/OFNco4DAvH

On Sunday evening, New York magazine’s Jonathan Chait published a piece asking why more disgruntled Republicans don’t punish their party by switching sides. Chait notes that the “strongest defense against the election of an extreme or unfit leader is for his more mainstream partners to defect en masse.” Yet with few exceptions, Never Trump Republicans — especially Never Trump social conservatives — were steadfastly Never Hillary and remain (as Chait calls it) “Never-Democrats.” Why?

I’d suggest the answer lies in the words “extreme” and “mainstream.” Chait’s premise implies that Republicans have gone extreme, yet more-sensible conservatives are strangely refusing to join a mainstream opposition. Yet that’s not how the world looks from the right side of the aisle. From there, it looks as if the Democratic party is responding to Trump by galloping away from the center, doubling down on the very policies and ideologies that led Evangelicals to vote en masse for Trump as a form of simple self-defense.
It’s interesting, for example, that Chait makes the argument just as the California State Assembly is set to vote on a bill that would actually — among other things — ban the sale of books expressing orthodox Christian beliefs about sexual morality.
Yes, ban the sale of books.
Assembly Bill 2943 would make it an “unlawful business practice” to engage in “a transaction intended to result or that results in the sale or lease of goods or services to any consumer” that advertise, offer to engage in, or do engage in “sexual orientation change efforts with an individual.”
The bill then defines “sexual orientations change efforts” as “any practices that seek to change an individual’s sexual orientation. This includes efforts to change behaviors or gender expressions, or to eliminate or reduce sexual or romantic attractions or feelings toward individuals of the same sex.” (Emphasis added.)
This is extraordinarily radical. Christian orthodoxy is simple — regardless of a person’s desires (their “orientation”), the standard of right conduct is crystal clear. Sex is reserved for marriage between a man and a woman. More
Note that this would include speech by scientists questioning the scientific evidence in support of transgender ideological claims.
#California “is creating a new religion of sexual libertinism, declaring that religions opposing it aren’t just false but harmful”
Based on this, the Bible will be soon prohibited.#WakeUpAmerica#ab2943

A half century after being the birthplace of the free speech movement, California is today on the leading edge of eroding free speech. https://t.co/xxe2Cnprje
