It Can’t Happen Here

Some morons in a Philly school have banned a book.Remember this is the United States of America. We don’t do that here. It can’t happen here. But it is. Brick in the wall, but I haven’t see one opinion on this. Maybe I’ll put up an adorable kitten in a Nazi armband. That will make an impression. Read below and I hope you’re appalled by  Friends’ Central School in Wynnewood, PA (Philly suburb) who banned “Huck Finn.”   – ” Ironically, early critiques of the novel were aimed at its anti-slavery stance and for its portrayal of a friendship between Jim, an African American escaped slave, and Huck Finn, a white boy.”        People are losing their minds in this country.

“The important thing is this:

“The students, along with brown shirted storm troopers, tossed heaps of books into a bonfire while giving the Hitler arm-salute and singing Nazi anthems. Among the 20,000 volumes hurled into the flames were the writings of Henri Barbusse, Franz Boas, John Dos Passos, Albert Einstein, Lion Feuchtwanger, Friedrich Förster, Sigmund Freud, John Galsworthy, André Gide, Ernst Glaeser, Maxim Gorki, Werner Hegemann, Ernest Hemingway, Erich Kästner, Helen Keller, Alfred Kerr, Jack London, Emil Ludwig, Heinrich Mann, Thomas Mann, Karl Marx, Hugo Preuss, Marcel Proust, Erich Maria Remarque, Walther Rathenau, Margaret Sanger, Arthur Schnitzler, Upton Sinclair, Kurt Tucholsky, Jakob Wassermann, H.G. Wells, Theodor Wolff, Emilé Zola, Arnold Zweig, and Stefan Zweig.”

It can’t happen here but it is. If you see something say something.
