4 States Cut Ties With American Library Association Over Heavily Sexualized Content

Montana, Missouri, Texas state libraries and Campbell County, Wyoming, cut ties with the American Library Association (ALA) in 2023, and nine other states are demanding similar action, The Associated Press reported in September.

The ban came after a series of books detailing and promoting pedophilia and sexual grooming and experimentation of young children, the Christian Post reported.

“This effort to change what libraries are, or even just take libraries away from communities, I think, is part of a larger effort to diminish the public good, to take away those information resources from individuals and really limit their opportunity to have the kinds of resources that a community hub, like a public library, provides,” ALA’s office of intellectual freedom director Deborah Caldwell-Stone told the AP.

No More Marxism

The ALA’s choice to stock heavily sexualized content for children was called “the crest of [the] culture crisis,” by one community member in Wyoming.

ALA president Emily Drabinski called herself a “Marxist lesbian” on social media, which led to significant backlash over the content of the stories sent to young people. “Marxist ideologies directly oppose our Montana values,” Montana’s superintendent of public instruction Else Arntzen said of the comment.

“I have been made aware that the American Library Association (ALA) has elected Emily Drabinski, a self-proclaimed ‘Marxist lesbian’ and member of the Democratic Socialists of America, as president,” Republican Texas state Rep. Brian Harrison said. “Texas should be leading the fight against Marxist ideology, not subsidizing it.”

Blatantly Political

“The Missouri Secretary of State’s office, which administers the Missouri State Library, cannot continue to support an organization that does not protect the First Amendment rights of Missourians and refuses to follow its own governing documents,” Missouri secretary of state Jay Ashcroft said of the ALA. “Therefore, I have instructed my staff to discontinue any future financial payments to the American Library Association. My hope is that you (ALA) reconsider this blatantly political stance, abide by your own principles, and protect the rights of Missourians.”
