SHOCKING MOMENT: Senator Reads X-RATED Excerpts From Children’s Books At Senate Hearing

America has been subsumed by the most evil forces of darkness. That this is even being debated illustrates just how depraved we’ve sunk to being.

Daily Signal: Sen. John Neely Kennedy read from pornographic books at a Senate hearing on Tuesday amid a heated exchange about school boards removing such books from libraries.

Kennedy, R-La., read from two books—“All Boys Aren’t Blue” and “Gender Queer: A Memoir”—both of which have been removed from bookshelves in school districts across the country over their sexual content. The hearing, titled “Book Bans: Examining How Censorship Limits Liberty and Literature,” was held by the Senate Judiciary Committee.


At today’s Senate Judiciary Committee hearing, Sen. John Kennedy (R-LA) read aloud from controversial books that have caused upset among some conservative parents.

The books the American Library Association and the left want children to be able to read — and even be forced to read — include some of the most graphic, perverse, pornographic descriptions you can imagine.

Sen. John Kennedy, R-La., drove home the point of frustrated parents across the nation when in a Senate hearing he read from two books that parents want to ban from school libraries, exposing the true graphic nature of the books and forcing the witness to respond that the content is “very disturbing.”

Sen. John Kennedy read from the two books that the American Library Association (ALA) claims were banned more than any other book during the 2021-2022 school year.
Kennedy was questioning the Illinois Secretary of State, who is also the state librarian, about the state’s new law that defunds any library that bans a sexually explicit book.

The two books, Gender Queer and All Boys Aren’t Blue, are so graphic and difficult to listen to that when concerned parents read them out loud at school board meetings, they are asked to stop talking.

Left-leaning activists are seeking to ban classic literature such as The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn and To Kill a Mockingbird due to claims that they use racist language.

Kennedy read the two books, Gender Queer and All Boys Aren’t Blue, during a hearing called “Book Bans: How Censorship Limits Liberty and Literature.” The books feature grotesquely graphic depictions of minors engaging in various homosexual acts.

The hearing was held as the American Library Association (ALA) and PEN America decry “book bans,” claiming that parents who demand that sexually explicit books be removed from school libraries are engaging in censorship.

PEN America lists the two previously named books as the most banned books during the 2021-2022 school year.

Kennedy read excerpts from the books and questioned Illinois Secretary of State Alexi Giannoulias, who is also the state librarian, about why the books should be allowed in school libraries. Illinois has enacted a “Right to Read” law that pulls funding from any library that removes books, including books that are pornographic.

“You come here and say censorship is bad, and of course it’s bad,” Kennedy said. “But the obvious response is — you heard the books we’re talking about. We’re not talking about Catcher in the Rye. So tell me, who gets to decide? And all I’ve heard is the librarians. And parents have nothing to do with it. and if that’s your response, what planet did you just parachute in from?”

The Secretary of State replied, “With all due respect, senator, the words are disturbing, especially coming out of your mouth, it’s very disturbing, but we’re not advocating for kids to read porn. We’re advocating for parents, random parents, not to have the ability under the guise of keeping kids safe to try and challenge the worldview of every single manner on these issues.”

That claim seems suspect as Illinois requires libraries to adopt the ALA bill of rights. ALA not only fought for the removal of the Children’s Internet Protection Act (CIPA), which requires libraries to install filters on computers that prevent children from accessing pornography but also pushes its list of supposedly Top 10 Most Challenged Books. With its 2022 list, ALA celebrated the authors and their books, which included graphic depictions of sex between children, as well as pedophilia.

PEN America and ALA claim that thousands of books have been banned, although those statistics are inflated by the fact that any book that is challenged by parents is automatically placed on the “banned books” list, even if the library puts the book back on the shelf.
