Deidre DeJear is a Democrat running for Governor of Iowa. It seems, right now, she is the likely candidate to compete against Republican Gov. Kim Reynolds.
And last month, DeJear was going after Republicans who were criticizing school libraries for having a book containing adult sexual content (according to Google) on the shelf. Other books have explicit sexual content.
Facebook noted the material violated its community standards on sexual activity.
Again — that’s Google and Facebook. Not exactly far-right, fringe social conservatives.
DeJear was all over efforts to clean our school libraries.
“‘The attack on our children is no longer hidden,'” she quoted Sen. President Jake Chapman as saying. “The attack is no longer hidden, and it’s coming from the Senate floor,” DeJear added.
Yeah, I’m not exactly sure what she’s talking about either.
DeJear has gone from defending sexually explicit, vulgar, inappropriate materials in school libraries to publicly proclaiming a conservative organization has no business in Iowa schools.
“We cannot and will not be the state that makes teachers the enemy and gives reign to hate groups like TPUSA, who assisted in the January 6 attack,” DeJear wrote. “This is not who we are, and groups like this do not belong in our schools.”
So, just to be clear, DeJear is saying pornographic books are OK for Iowa school libraries, but Turning Point USA isn’t acceptable.
We look forward to all the stories from mainstream media about how DeJear is guilty of banning the First Amendment in Iowa schools. Surely they’ll start rolling in any time now…
