Paul Allor defends propaganda for children in a public library

Comics writer Allor tweeted the following:

Meaning what? That it's okay to send children the message that homosexuality is perfectly okay, or worse, that it's something children should practice to boot? Sigh. I guess if somebody complained about books with positive presentation for Judeo-Christianity and patriotism in the library for children, he'd take their side in sharp contrast? Melanie Phillips is right; this is a World Turned Upside Down. There have been children's books coming out in the past several years where the authors even tried to normalize drug abuse, and it's very sad how these are given a pass while patriotism, capitalism, self-support and Judeo-Christianity are shunned.

He makes no mention whether the "a-hole" was a father, nor does he seem to respect that parents have a right to argue what they think is or isn't suitable for their children. Suppose a book promoting communist totalitarianism were being kept at the public library? Would he say parents are wrong to protest marketing socialism to their children as an acceptable belief?

On the plus side, he did write:

Well I'm glad to see he understands Boko Haram are a bunch of savages. Now maybe if he'd just argue that it's high time the comics medium start writing serious stories about the dangers of jihadism, even if only metaphorically, then we'd be getting somewhere.

If "some a-hole" turns out to be a Muslim instead of a Jew or Christian, then Allor will do an about-face and start whining about the need to be sensitive, and how we must respect their religion.

But the "a-hole" probably was a Christian or Jew. He only asked that the book be placed on high shelves, so little kids could not get it without an adult's permission. A Muslim would have blown up the library.

  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
