Democrat State Sen. Sarah Trone Garriott is running against Senate President Jake Chapman. Trone Garriott has often criticized Chapman for his efforts to rid Iowa school libraries of materials that Google says contain adult sexual content and Facebook says violates its community standards on sexual activity.

Trone Garriott, and Iowa Democrats, are allowed to do this because the media refuses to do a couple of things.

First, the media refuses to show what is actually in these books. Because when the average Iowan sees or hears what is actually in these books, an overwhelming majority will agree the books don’t belong in the school libraries.

Second, the media doesn’t force Democrats to own these books. If Democrats are going to criticize Republicans for efforts to remove these vulgar materials from school libraries, does this automatically mean Democrats support these items being on the shelf? Does the media show Democrats the materials and then ask if they support it being on the shelves?

Again, Google says “Gender Queer,” for example, contains adult sexual content. Facebook states “Gender Queer” images violate its community standards on sexual activity.

These aren’t conservatives just being prudes. These are Big Tech lefties.

Here are some scenes from the book “Flamer.”

The Iowa Standard reached out to Sen. Trone Garriott, who is listed as a “minister” as well, and asked her if she would provide her position on books containing such language being in school libraries. We asked if she believes the book is appropriate for a public school library and if it is an appropriate use of taxpayer dollars. We also asked if she is comfortable with the book being attainable by children in the Waukee School District.

After a few days, she is yet to respond.

We will publish her response when we receive one.
