Cranky, obnoxious Liberals want Rush Limbaugh’s best-selling children’s book removed from the Every Child a Reader (ECAR) program’s Children’s and Teen Choice Book Award ‘Author of the Year’ contest. The Children’s Book Council answered publicly and I appreciate that as I would expect them to fold for the wonky cranks, but they didn’t. It sickens me though, that something so obvious must be explained, and other very obvious things, like American history and civics are openly lied about and supplied to children with our own tax dollars. How do we explain that? Any person taking one peek inside Rush’s beautiful books knows that only a consummate hater of the truth and pride could get their briefs in a wad over Paul Revere, brave Pilgrims and the American spirit of exceptionalism.
Last year, Limbaugh published his first children’s book, Rush Revere and the Brave Pilgrims: Time-Travel Adventures with Exceptional Americans. The book instantly landed on best seller lists across the industry. This year, Limbaugh published his second book, Rush Revere and the First Patriots, and it, too, quickly hit the top selling list, appearing as number five on The New York Times bestsellers list for the week of March 23.
Consequently, along with three other authors, Limbaugh’s momentous book sales landed him in the CBC’s Children’s and Teen Choice Book Awards author of the year contest. Source: Breitbart
First, our finalist selection process for the past 7 years of the program, always posted here on bookweekonline.com, has been exactly the same. The Children’s Choice Book Awards comprises 6 categories: Kindergarten to Second Grade Book of the Year, Third to Fourth Grade Book of the Year, Fifth to Sixth Grade Book of the Year, Teen Book of the Year, Author of the Year, and Illustrator of the Year…
The Author of the Year and Illustrator of the Year finalists are determined solely based on titles’ performances on the bestseller lists – all titles in those categories are listed as a result of this protocol. Some of you have voiced concerns over the selection of finalists from bestseller lists, which you feel are potentially-manipulable indications of the success of a title. We can take this into consideration going forward, but cannot change our procedure for selecting finalists after the fact.
Ultimately, kids and teens (over one million of them if as many vote this year as did last year) will decide who wins in all 6 Children’s Choice Book Awards categories on May 14, so encourage them to vote starting March 25 at ccbookawards.com. We have procedures in place to eliminate duplicate, fake, and adult votes during the voting period as much as possible.
You only have to think back to Kevin Jennings, Obama’s first “Safe Schools” Czar to understand what Liberals want your children to read, and be assured patriotism or founding principles are not on their list.
The new whoops is a safe-sex guide distributed in a Massachusetts [the state where Jennings taught] high
school in 2005. Included in the book are the addresses and phone numbers of Boston-area gay bars to make it easier for teens to find the businesses that cater to homosexual men over the age of 21. The guide’s descriptions of what goes on in these bars is explicit.
Over here, there’s “dancing, young guys and those who like young guys.” Over there, the ambience is “old school, cruisy, sex-charged late at night.”
At another hot spot, there’s “porn on the television, the old, the young. Something for everyone.” Read more about Jennings here
God Bless America, Jenning’s books have not made it on a New York Times best seller list yet, but his writings and his recommended reading lists have been made available to all teachers, and are much more high-profile with the support of Barack Obama.
It is a long and gosh-awful list. Somewhere, there are teachers ordering from this list. God help you if your child is subjected to this swill. Can it really be that bad, you are asking? Well, yes it can. Below is a very small sampling, and you can read all of the examples here. I’m asking you to brace yourself, and for the good of this country, follow the link and read the excepts from eleven of the books on the list. Here is an example of one of the tamer quotes:
(At the age of six, the author frequently performed fellatio on his fellow first-graders in the school restroom, part of a “busy homosexual childhood.”)
It is deeply saddening to realize that if people like Rush Limbaugh do not write these stories, the history will disappear. We can no longer count on our children’s text books to explain our founding principles, we cannot count on our teachers, we cannot count on our school boards or our Parent-Teacher Associations.
