Governor Kim Reynolds and Iowa Senate President Jake Chapman both spoke out in their remarks last week regarding sexually explicit, vulgar, inappropriate books being in school libraries.

House Republican Rep. Garrett Gobble said Chapman went “too far” in his remarks. Gobble’s claim that Chapman went “too far” was liked by fellow House Republicans Shannon Lundgren, Megan Jones and Chad Ingels.


GOP Rep. Skyler Wheeler said on Facebook he is thankful Chapman and Reynolds took such a strong stand.

“Teachers and librarians do not have the right to push pornographic books and materials on their students,” Wheeler said. “And (they) do not get to hide behind this idea that they are necessary for education or are artistic by nature. I’m with (Chapman) and Gov. Reynolds. And any Republican who isn’t should rethink their party affiliation.”

Democrats and mainstream media have routinely defended these books, but refuse to actually publish the content of the books — likely because they either cannot publish them due to obscenity laws or they know doing so will reveal how sick and twisted the agenda is.

Chapman said it is time to take a stand against those who wish to “normalize sexually deviant behavior against our children, including pedophilia and incest.”

“Our children should be safe and free from this atrocious assault,” he said.

Reynolds assured parents she and legislators have heard them “loud and clear.”

“There’s a difference between late-night cable TV and the school library,” Reynolds said. “If school boards and administrators refuse to understand that — if they believe the classroom is about pushing their worldview — then we’re on the wrong path. So to the parents who are listening tonight, who are frustrated with what’s happening: Know that I and members of this legislature have heard you loud and clear. Enough is enough.”
