A public library in Texas is suffering major backlash after news broke that one of the readers from “Drag Queen Storytime” is a convicted child sexual offender.
The Heights Public Library, part of the Houston Public Library system, was all smiles at the announcement of “Drag Queen Storytime” that began in July 2018, but those smiles quickly turned upside down. After management failed to stop a man who was convicted of sexually assaulting a young boy a few years ago from participating in the reading, the library system isn’t singing the praises of men in dresses reading to little kids anymore.
“Tatiana Mala Nina”, whose real name is Alberto Garza, is 32-years-old and was convicted of sexually assaulting an eight-year-old boy in 2008, according to Breitbart. He “somehow” found his way into a reading gig for the public library, where he read to numerous little boys and girls. The library is stating the Garza never had a background check completed before starting to volunteer at the public library. He was last seen reading to children at the Montrose Library in September 2018, according to ABC 13.
Let’s keep in mind that many moms who took their kids to these “Drag Queen Storytime” events were all about it. They really wanted their kids under 10-years-old to learn about people with confused sexualities. Excited to “expose them to things they don’t get to see every day, I want it to become more normal and more accepted,” one mom said of the storytimes.
Alexandra Drake, the Heights Library Assistant Manager told KHOU11, “It is amazingly unique and that is something we strive for, for sure. At this particular branch but also at Houston Public Library we always want to promote diversity, understanding, inclusion, and fun.” So, Houston Public Library is big on inclusion for sexual predators?
Simply apologizing for a ‘slip’ in the system isn’t cutting it. Do your job, city government, and maybe things like this won’t happen. This library allowed a child predator to have interaction with young kids all because they tried so hard to be overly inclusive. How’s that working out, HLP?
Houston Public Library released statement on Friday about the incident.
We were made aware today that one participant for Drag Queen storytime who read at the September 29, 2018, Drag Queen Storytime has a criminal background that should have prevented him from participating in the program.
We assure you that this participant will not be involved in any future HPL programs.
In our review of our process and of this participant, we discovered that we failed to complete a background check as required by our own guidelines. We deeply regret this oversight and the concern this may cause our customers. We realize this is a serious matter.
Every program sponsored by HPL is supervised by HPL staff, and all children are accompanied by a parent and/or guardian. No participant is ever alone with children, and we have not received any complaints about any inappropriate behavior by participants at storytimes.
We are taking the appropriate action to ensure that the status of every participant in every program throughout our system is verified. We will continue to review our process to ensure that this cannot happen again.
Once again, we apologize for our failure to adhere to our own process in this matter and to the hundreds of parents and caregivers who have enjoyed this program with their children.

San Francisco Dumps Environmentalism, Bans Reusable Bags at Grocery Stores During Coronavirus Pandemic
Environmentalism is thrown by the wayside during a crisis.
The ultra left-wing city of San Francisco, Calif. is bailing on environmentalism during a time of great crisis, banning the use of reusable plastic bags at grocery stores temporarily due to concerns regarding the spread of coronavirus.
The San Francisco Department of Public Health has issued an ordinance preventing city residents from taking reusable items into the public and using them in essential stores. They believe this will make it more difficult for germs to proliferate throughout the city.
“There is no effective treatment or cure yet for the disease, testing ability while improving remains constrained, and San Francisco’s health care system is at ongoing risk of being overwhelmed. For these reasons, it is imperative that San Francisco not only extend the duration of its stay at home order but also further limit essential activities and extend social distancing requirements outside the home,” the ordinance reads.
San Francisco Mayor London Breed has not hesitated to shut down civil society in order to combat the spread of coronavirus. She has effectively tossed environmentalism to the wayside, showing that the frequent leftist bugaboo is not actually a pressing concern.
“I can’t reiterate enough how important it is for all of us to continue to comply, for all of us to continue to be good citizens, to cooperate,” said Breed, who has issued lockdown edicts that last until at least May 3.
Today we officially extended the stay at home health order through May 3. I want to thank the people of San Francisco for continuing to do their part to save lives. I know this isn’t easy but we will get through it together. pic.twitter.com/4rggISBnQv

In 2007, San Francisco was the first city in America to ban the use of plastic shopping bags. The leftists on the Board of Supervisors enacted this prohibition to satisfy Mother Earth and potentially start a trend throughout the country.
“I am astounded and surprised by the worldwide attention,” Supervisor Ross Mirkarimi said at the time, according to the SFGate. “Hopefully, other cities and other states will follow suit.”
The grocery store lobby in the state came out against the regulation at the time, believing that it would accomplish little to help the environment and only serve to frustrate consumers.
“We’re disappointed that the Board of Supervisors is going down this path,” said Kristin Power, who worked as the vice president of government relations for the California Grocers Association.
“It will frustrate recycling efforts and will increase both consumer and retailer costs. There’s also a real concern about the availability and quality of compostable bags,” she added.
By instituting their emergency measures, San Francisco has demonstrated that environmental concerns are not particularly important in the grand scheme of things. These lofty goals are put on the back burner when a real crisis, such as the coronavirus panic, takes precedence.
