(RoyalPatriot.com )- Despite sexually explicit books being shown to children in public school libraries, the first lady told NBC News last week that “all books” should be in schools, according to Daily Caller. Jill Biden called it unAmerican to ban books, in spite of the ongoing controversy over what books are appropriate to show children.
“All books should be in the library, all books,” she said. “This is America, we don’t ban books.”
She was asked about parents’ roles in their children’s education and said that both parents and teachers need to work side by side to decide on the content that are shown to students.
“I think with the pandemic, parents saw how hard teachers work and how difficult this job really is,” she said. “And I think if they work together in their school districts and decide what they want with their curriculum.”
The first lady’s remarks come amid controversy over sexually explicit books being shown to children. In the state of Tennessee, a book was reported to be shown in school libraries to children. The book is obscenely pornographic and encourages children to have sex with adults on sex apps.
In honor of "BANNED BOOK WEEK" next week, I thought I’d show you the pornographic, obscene content these Marxist librarians, teachers and parents want to give kids. This book is all over American libraries and schools; including in my "conservative" state of Tennessee! pic.twitter.com/ReKcxnryzV

Fairfax and Loudon County Public Schools in Virginia was also experiencing a host of issues last year when parents discovered that sexually explicit material was being offered to their children in libraries. They eventually removed books containing sexually explicit material after receiving national backlash when a parent was filmed reading sections of a book that was in her child’s school library.
“Lawn Boy” by Jonathan Evison and “Gender Queer” by Maia Kobabe were in the libraries at Fairfax High School and Robinson Secondary School, according to Daily Caller. They depict pedophilia and sexual acts between men and young boys. In November, Fairfax County Public Schools reportedly voted to reinstate the books to “provide diverse reading materials that reflect [the] student population.”
“What if I told you I touched another guy’s dick? What if I told you I sucked it? I was 10 years old but it’s true. I sucked [Doug]’s dick, the real estate guy, and he sucked mine too,” one book read.
Loudon County Public Schools voted to remove “Gender Queer” from libraries in January 2022. In Massachusetts, public schools reportedly recommended summer reading books that focused on “white privilege” and “whiteness” for kids in Kindergarten through third grade.
