Two Democratic lawmakers from New Jersey have found another scapegoat for their politically correct crusade against the evils of racism in society: Mark Twain’s legendary book The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn.
These race-obsessed hucksters are triggered by the book’s uncensored content which includes racial slurs and attitudes of the late 19th century, the time period in which the book was written. These passages are considered abhorrent and unacceptable to these snowflake government officials.
Assembly members Verlina Reynolds-Jackson (D-Mercer) and Jamel Holley (D-Union) are leading a legislative book burning of sorts as they attempt to rob children of their educational experience because due to their own sad victim complexes.
“The novel’s use of a racial slur and its depiction of racist attitudes can cause students to feel upset, marginalized or humiliated and can create an uncomfortable atmosphere in the classroom,” the resolution claims.
“The inclusion of [the novel] in the school curriculum in effect requires adolescents to read and discuss a book containing hurtful, oppressive, and highly offensive language directed at African-Americans,” the resolution continues.
These assembly members hope New Jersey joins Pennsylvania, Virginia, Minnesota and Mississippi as other states to ban the book. The authors of the resolution, which is non-binding and would only encourage New Jersey schools to ban Mark Twain’s literary masterpiece, defend their censorship push as necessary for social justice.
“There are other books out there that can teach about character, plot and motive — other ways besides using this particular book for that lesson,” Reynolds-Jackson said during an interview with Politico.
This race-baiting leftist, of course, made it abundantly clear that this is all about herself and her own self-serving political agenda not what is best for the children.
“I think this is a racist book,” Reynolds-Jackson said. “I think in the climate that we’re in right now, where you have a president that is caging up our children and separating us in this way, I think to use this book in this climate is not doing the African-American community any justice at all.”
Even hardcore leftists like Nobel Prize-winning author Toni Morrison, who writes white guilt novels to indoctrinate young adults, feels that banning Huck Finn is wrong because of the classic book’s “ability to transform its contradictions into fruitful complexities and to seem to be deliberately cooperating in the controversy it has excited.”
“The brilliance of Huckleberry Finn is that it is the argument it raises,” Morrison wrote.
New Jersey children will no longer be provoked intellectually if socialists likely Reynolds-Jackson and Holley have their way. Political correctness will ultimately snuff out all that is authentic in Western culture if it is not put to an end quickly.

President Trump Rejects Paying For Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s Private Security
The royal celebrities will foot the bill.
President Trump made it clear on a Sunday tweet that British royals Prince Harry and Meghan Markle would have to pay for their own security costs upon moving full-time to the United States, clarifying that they wouldn’t receive federal security under an existing arrangement that covers British royals temporarily visiting the US.
I am a great friend and admirer of the Queen & the United Kingdom. It was reported that Harry and Meghan, who left the Kingdom, would reside permanently in Canada. Now they have left Canada for the U.S. however, the U.S. will not pay for their security protection. They must pay!
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 29, 2020
The royal celebrities have distanced themselves from the Queen, apparently viewing themselves as victims of relentless paparazzi and media attention.
Harry and Markle initially moved to Canada after resigning from the royal family, but they’ve recently moved to Hollywood just before the Canadian border was closed to nonessential travel due to the Chinese coronavirus epidemic. The elitist couple apparently plans on reinventing themselves as American-style celebrities, and have hired a small army of media consultants and public relations agents to market their image.
When information of their move to Los Angeles became public knowledge, many began to speculate if they’d recieve taxpayer-funded security in a manner akin to British royals visiting the United States on official state vists. President Trump’s Sunday tweet appears to eliminate that possibility.
The thirteen colonies that became the United States rebelled against the yoke of the British monarchy for a reason. President Trump’s decision to cut off the wannabee celebrities from publicly-funded security is a deeply American decision. The UK’s monarchy is one of the wealthiest legacy institutions in the western world, and it would be absurd to imagine that it can’t afford to hire private security for the ‘former’ royals, who are set to fully renounce their royal obligations at the end of the month.
