Republicans know exactly what they believe is the greatest threat to American students: books.
Republicans are also deeply worried that a child might enjoy a drag queen story hour, in which drag performers use their skills at entertaining a crowd to get kids excited about reading.
Of course, considering the Republican hostility to children reading, the "story hour" may be as offensive to them as the "drag" part.
At this point, the Republican callousness to the carnage is so baked in that it barely feels worth remarking upon.
To make it worse, what little Republicans are willing to do in Congress is in real danger of being dismantled by Republicans in the federal courts.
The threat of the targeted books is not to students, who will only benefit from learning more about the world around them.
A murdered child, after all, is unlikely to think for themselves, much less grow up to vote against Republicans. »
