Don’t mess with a Cuban mother

Once again, a Miami-Dade County Public School features a pro-commie book in its library. This time, a Cuban-American mother fights back:

A Miami-Dade mother says a book she checked out from her son’s school library contains false information about Cuba and she won’t give it back.

Dalila Rodriguez checked out the book this month.

Rodriguez said, “If you take it out and don’t return it, no kid can read it. It’s not censoring; it’s protecting our children from lies.”

While I’m no fan of censorship, I’d like to make two points here:

– Children are very impressionable and it is indeed an obligation to be careful with what they are taught; as they grow older and begin to develop good judgemement, only then should they be exposed to more

– It’s funny how those who scream “censorship” the loudest when a book that makes Castro’s Cuba look good is removed from a library’s shelf, are silent when a timeless classic like Huckleberry Finn is the book that gets removed.
