    Default Tennessee school board votes unanimously to ban book about the Holocaust

    A Tennessee school board voted unanimously to ban the Pulitzer Prize-winning graphic novel "Maus," which details the horrors of the Holocaust.

    On Jan. 10, the McMinn County School Board voted 10-0 to remove the graphic novel from an eighth-grade language arts curriculum, citing foul language, nudity and copyright issues.

    "I consulted with our attorney, Mr. Scott Bennett. After consulting with him, we decided the best way to fix or handle the language in this book was to redact it," Director of School Lee Parkison said at the beginning of the Jan. 10 meeting, according to a meeting transcript. "Considering copyright, we decided to redact it to get rid of the eight curse words and the picture of the woman that was objected to."

    "Maus" is a graphic memoir, meaning it's based on a true story and the experiences of the author’s Jewish family during the Holocaust.

    “It shows people hanging, it shows them killing kids," he added, describing the depictions in "Maus" of true historical events. "Why does the educational system promote this kind of stuff? It is not wise or healthy."

    Kreizman, also the host of the literary podcast The Maris Review, says banning books and lessons that make people "uncomfortable" has become a disturbing trend.

    “There’s been so much hand wringing about cancel culture from the right, but the banning of books from public places like schools and libraries is as 'cancel culture' as it gets,” Kreizman says. “This is fascism.”

    It's a very disturbing tread indeed.

    1. CRT
    2. Holocaust
    3. LGBT
    4. Christian right
    5. Immigrants

    You may add more to the list.

    From the OP article:

    '"Parkison said two or three board members came by his office to discuss the book and its rough, objectionable language." One board member, Tony Allman, said in the meeting that educators "don't need to enable or somewhat promote this stuff," according to the transcript, and cited the book's author's past history of creating graphics for "Playboy."

    “It shows people hanging, it shows them killing kids," he added, describing the depictions in "Maus" of true historical events. "Why does the educational system promote this kind of stuff? It is not wise or healthy."'


    This is NOTHING to do with religion.
    And EVERYTHING to do with 'objectionable language'.
    I don't agree with banning ANY book...but whatever.


    You are clearly trying to make this religious (because you are Jewish)...when it CLEARLY is not.

    Lighten up.

    I saw this on the 'ReidOut' with Joy Reid. She said it made 'White People' feel uncomfortable.

    Question: Do the Negro Schools that Joy must have attended teach that it was the Americans that fought the Nazis and Liberated the Concentration Camps?

    Stay calm...like I heard Jesus did before he was killed.

    Ohhhh...bad example.

    Sorry.


    The way Joy Reid attempted to portray it, it was the 'White People' ... and it made Americans feel 'uncomfortable'. Implying 'the Nazis' were 'White People' and so were 'Americans'. Hence, 'White Americans' should feel guilty over this. Apparently, not really having a firm grasp of History.

    Yeah. Most feel the same way. Somehow, Joy made the comment 'White People' and 'feeling uncomfortable'.

    Am I out of the Loop here? Are the 'White People' now the group to Hate? I know that is Guno's contribution here, but Joy? A TV anchor person?

    I'm not there. You tell me. Maybe it's the Naked Lady (think of the children APL), or maybe it's the 'curse words', or maybe it's the Administration that thinks the whole 'Holocaust thingy' is overblown?
