The Thought Police Are Coming

Republican Alabama lawmaker Gerald Allen (Nazi asshole) says homosexuality is an unacceptable lifestyle. Under his proposed bill, public school libraries could no longer buy new copies of plays or books by gay authors, or about gay characters.

"I don't look at it as censorship," (WTF?) he says.... "I look at it as protecting the hearts and souls and minds of our children." (Isn't that MY job, as a parent?)
Books by any gay author would have to go: Tennessee Williams, Truman Capote and Gore Vidal. Alice Walker's novel "The Color Purple" has lesbian characters.
I suppose most musical theater is completely out of the question, then.

Allen originally wanted to ban even some Shakespeare. Can you fucking believe it?!
It was only after criticism that he narrowed his bill to exempt the classics, although he CAN'T define what a classic is.

Next it will be books that empower women and people of color....

I am thoroughly disgusted.
