What is truly chilling is the Orwellian call for children to burn books in order to be a more “inclusive country.”
Update: The Conseil Scolaire Catholique (CSC) Providence has issued a statement of regret but notably does not state any intention to fire or sanction those responsible for this heinous act.

I thought long and hard about this development and found I have little to say here as its all already been said so many times before. Who needs to be told book burning is evil? I’m honestly left a bit bewildered by how it would happen, especially in a university or scholastic environment. After all the very first book burnings in Germany were also by schools. University students around Germany at more than 30 colleges and universities burned tens of thousands of books. It started there, in the colleges and universities.
So what else is there to say?
How it can happen I don’t know, but it is a great evil that we never would have tolerated in America or Canada, until now.
What the hell, are we doing?
“Fahrenheit 451” by Bradbury and Richard Condon’s “Manchurean Candidate” — sure wish we could find somebody to channel those two authors for their opinions on these horros?
Thanks, Prof. Turley.
I want to the record to show that I vehemently oppose ANY source of information- be it books, newspapers or cable programs- being treated like trash either by literally burning it or figuratively by calling it “fake.”
Book burning is only bad when done by evil Nazis but ok when done by those fighting for a more inclusive society.
Just waiting for some s@@tlib to justify this with a straight face.
Sigh. Book burning.
The destruction of statues.
Removal of classic literature and art from curriculum.
Racially segregated graduations.
Fools don’t hang on to freedom.
I agree completely. This nation was founded under Judeo-Christian principles a nation founded as a Christian nation that allows all religions freedom to practice three faith. Unless ww turn around and fast and honor our Constitution we are going down.
