More ALA Lunacy

The policies of the American Library Association are dangerous. I have written extensively about the ALA's anti-child/pro-pervert policy of resistance to internet filters, now Deroy Murdock at NRO writes that Libraries should be a key target of the Patriot Act.

As Congress considers reauthorizing the Patriot Act, it explicitly should add libraries to the locations where federal investigators may hunt terrorists. Here are five reasons why: Marwan al Shehhi; Mohand, Wail, and Waleed Alshehri; and Mohamed Atta — September 11 hijackers, all.

It seems that the ALA is willing to sacrifice not only our children but our very lives at the altar of free speech. The founders of the nation and the authors of the Constitution would be horrified to see the degree to which their intentions have been twisted. Consider this:

"We're quiet rebels," Cindy Czesak, director of New Jersey's Paterson Free Public Library, told Fox News. Her institution collects every completed computer sign-up sheet. "After that, it's removed and destroyed." She added: "We bought a nice new shredder." Paterson happens to be the Garden State town where Nawaf and Salem al Hazmi, Khalid al Mihdar, Hani Hanjour, and Majed Moqed rented an apartment in spring 2001. All five slammed American Airlines Flight 77 into the Pentagon. Death toll: 184.

These dangerously naive or clandestinely seditious librarians are beyond foolish. They potentially jeopardize the lives of American citizens.

Frankly, this attitude is not surprising to me. I have seen it again and again in regard to protecting children from pornography in PUBLIC libraries. Michael Savage is right: "Liberalism is a Mental Disorder."
