Joe Biden and his regime have pushed culture war on America since Day One and tyrannized those who dare stand in their way. They now have their sights set on Granbury, a small city in Texas.
The Texas Tribune reported Tuesday that the U.S. Department of Education launched an investigation into Granbury Independent School District because a superintendent ordered the removal of certain LGBTQ books in school libraries. This probe comes in the wake of the communist American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) filing a complaint accusing the school district of discrimination based on gender and sexual orientation.
Granbury superintendent Jeremy Glenn told librarians in a January meeting to remove LGBTQ books with adult-oriented themes. He later clarified his policy was based on ensuring age-appropriate material for kids, not bigotry toward transgender individuals.
From The Texas Tribune:
“I acknowledge that there are men that think they’re women and there are women that think they’re men,” Glenn told librarians in January, according to a leaked recording of the meeting obtained, verified, and published exclusively by the news outlets. “I don’t have any issues with what people want to believe, but there’s no place for it in our libraries.”
Later in the meeting, Glenn clarified that he was specifically focused on removing books geared toward queer students: “It’s the transgender, LGBTQ and the sex — sexuality — in books,” he said, according to the recording.
The policy Glenn articulates is basic common sense. Adult-themed books, LGBTQ or otherwise, have no place in school libraries. Safeguarding children from harm should always be the priority for schools along with educating the next generation.
Some of the books the Regime wants available to kids qualify as gay porn. Please view this video of a mom reading excerpts of a few books Fairfax Country Public Schools has made available to their students:
This does not matter to the Regime, however. Biden and his fellow travelers are all in on shoving radical gender identity policies down America’s throat.
Back in July, Biden signed an executive order promoting puberty blockers and sex reassignment surgeries for underage children. Biden back in October also called efforts to curb these so-called gender affirming treatments “outrageous” and “immoral.”

Leander Independent School District in Leander, Texas, has removed several books from school reading lists. Teachers in the district have rallied to defend the rights of students to read the books. While Leader ISD has followed its instructional material review policy appropriately, it’s notable that two of the three books thus far recommended for removal tell LGBTQ+ stories and the initial challenge was spurred by parental opposition to the inclusion of LGBTQ+ books.
NCAC has written the district to express concern with the apparent targeting of LGBTQ+ stories for removal. The review of the books lists is ongoing.
In Leader ISD, all middle and high school English classes participate in book club-style units. Students choose a title from a list of 15 books designated for their grade level to encourage them to read books that pique their personal interest. The full review of book club reading lists was sparked by a complaint about the inclusion of In the Dream House by Carmen Maria Machado, an award-winning memoir of an abusive gay relationship. The district halted all book club reading until a review of all of the titles on the selection list could be completed. Thus far, the books tagged for removal are primarily LGBTQ stories and graphic novels, as well as books that deal with sexual assault.
