Minnesota Schools Ban To Kill A Mockingbird, Huckleberry Finn

Modern day book burning continues in the form of increasingly widespread censorship. This time fiction is on the chopping block: Harper Lee’s To Kill A Mockingbird and Mark Twain’s Huckleberry Finn have both been banned from Minnesota school syllabuses due to making students feel “marginalized”.

The Express is reporting that the two works of fiction have been scrubbed from the syllabuses across the schools in Minnesota. However, they will still be available in the school libraries.

The article explains…

“The reason being a concern that racial slurs used in Harper Lee’s To Kill a Mockingbird and Mark Twain’s The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, could make pupils feel “humiliated or marginalised”. According to The Telegraph, The Duluth school district, which includes over 20 schools, is removing the books from the curriculum for ninth and 11th grade English classes.”

The classic novels join an ever-growing list of banned reading material, including the Harry Potter series, which was banned from a Tennessee Catholic school, and 200 classic children’s books that were banned from a Catalonia school in Spain because they contained “toxic stereotypes”.

A number of books have also been banned from Amazon, many of which dealt with race realism and identity politics. However, they contained facts that Leftists didn’t want people to be informed about, hence they were banned.

The Regressive Left now control the stage, and anyone and everything that doesn’t align with their puritanically tenuous worldview is being expunged.

Expect Centrists™ to run defense for the Social Justice Warriors, claiming that the books are “…only banned from the syllabus”, and then later when the censorship increases they will move the goal posts and claim that “…they’re only banned in one state”, and then eventually when there’s a national ban on the books, they will use the excuse that “…they’re only banned in America”.
