In an opinion piece in The Guardian, Maeve Higgins writes:

As the Guardian has reported, the censorship frequently pushed by conservative groups is linked to wealthy rightwing donors even as they masquerade as grassroots efforts, with names like “Moms for Liberty” and “Parents Defending Education”. EveryLibrary, a political action committee for libraries, reports that many states have passed laws to change how libraries handle complaints about books, making it easier to remove them. Republican legislators, who loudly claim they are all for freedom of speech, are working to change how library board members are appointed and challenging laws that protect librarians and teachers from prosecution should they be accused of sharing something someone could find offensive…

… Are they so frightened of young people reading about someone else’s life experience? I think the right wing is really afraid of libraries not because libraries promote any one type of information but because libraries promote information itself.
