In the 21st century, the rights of decent law-abiding citizens must always yield to the rights of freaks and weirdos.
That’s the lesson in the Chicago suburb of Orland Park, Illinois, where the local public library considers it their duty to provide perverts access to Internet pornography at taxpayer expense. There have been reports of degenerates masturbating in the library and using the library’s computers to access child pornography.
You might think that Orland Park is committed to the First Amendment, but when it comes to the right of citizens to peaceably assemble and petition their government for a redress of grievances? Eh, not so much. Orland Park mom Megan Fox explains:
The most recent board meeting at the Orland Park Public Library was an illustration of tyrannical government in action. . . .
The public embarrassment and citizen outcry has not made one iota of difference to the hardcore leftists on the board. Their commitment to porn and the American Library Association’s insistence that [pornography] is protected in a public space (even when paid for by unwilling taxpayers) is unwavering.
I have spoken at five board meetings along with other members of the community. Each time the topic was the same. “Put filters on the computers.” . . . But at the last meeting . . . the board decided they had heard enough about the porn problem at their library. They arbitrarily decided we are no longer able to speak about anything relating to “computers” or “sexual misconduct” in their library. Keep in mind, these are the “free speech” people. . . .
(No, they’re free porn people.)
They bluster that those of us who don’t want porn in public libraries are trying to censor adults from hardcore porn or “information” in their words, but they have no problem actually stopping citizens and taxpayers from speaking to them!
Read the whole thing at PJ Media. Orland Park’s idiotic policy has nothing to do with the First Amendment. Nobody is threatening the right of porn producers to “publish” their material, nor is any individual’s right to view such products at risk. Freaks can buy their own computers — hey, Amazon sells lots of computers for under $400 — and surf the ‘Net in the privacy of their own
homes public housing homeless shelters basement rape dungeons.
The question is whether taxpayers are obligated to provide free access to such material in a public space.
No sane person would answer that question “yes,” but no sane person is a member of the Orland Park Library Board, which evidently has been captured by the Pervert Rights Movement.
