  1. Why doesn’t the KUSD have a clear cut policy that will keep this garbage out of our schools? No way will I ever vote for more money for the public schools. They better not dare even think of pushing a referendum. Not when this trash is being bought with tax payers money.

      1. Where can I get the forms to get these books out? I don’t see them posted online anywhere. How convenient.

            1. it is apparently the librarians who do this. They are picking new books on Nov. 3, I believe! they should not be purchasing pornographic, radical gender ideology books and other grooming materials!

  2. What is the hold up on creating a policy to keep the pornographic books out of the school libraries? KUSD certainly acted quickly to pull a few books off the shelves when the media called them out on it. I would think making a policy should be a priority.

  3. Kevin, thank you for posting the names of the schools that have these nasty books in their libraries. I had no idea. Do you have a link where I can see what other books are in my son’s library?

  4. Thank you for putting this together. People need to be aware of what is going on. This is not an LGBT issue. There are ratings on things for a reason, would you let your kid watch an x rated movie? What educational purpose is to teach a child how to have anal sex or join an online dating site that preys on kids?! WTH is wrong with these crazy lefty groomers?!

  5. Clowns like Joel, crazy sue lady and other left idiots seem to think it’s ok to have these books. One clown even spoke up after hearing paragraphs of a book that talked about a dad and his daughter. Stated kids should explore that and learn. It’s almost disgusting to think these idiots are not only parents but being honest. Complete losers

    1. Oh yeah, that was Jodi Muerhoff! She thinks books on incest are healthy! I remember hearing her on YouTube at the School board meeting! What a sicko

    1. pretty much! No wonder they are closing schools and it is not solely due to declining birth rate–it is because parents are sick of their kids being forced the LGBTQwhatever agenda and having their kids read porn. Can’t they just teach anymore? We are pulling our kids out after this year–maybe before the year’s end. I can’t stand it anymore

      1. Thank you Mass Resistance you are doing amazing work for the students of KUSD. Keep up the outstanding job!

      2. We pulled ours as well and I know several others doing the same. How many schools have to close until KUSD looks in the mirror…

  6. CUSH (community activist group) and their member Churches, are supportive of these books and are collecting these type of books to create their own collection. This is stated in CUSH’s October Newsletter. If you are a member of one of these supporting Churches and object to these books being made available to children, please let your Pastor, Priest, etc… and Church staff know. Here is a link of Churches that support CUSH and their efforts to make these books available in the Public Schools and their evolving collection https://www.cushkenosha.com/about/member-congregations/

  7. All of these books are rated 14+ and none of them are in Elementary Schools (according to this article).

    The pearl clutching about what books are available for the intended age groups needs to stop.

    If you don’t want your kids to read these books, tell them specifically you don’t want them to read them.

    Leave every parents’ children alone.

    1. How about no! They need to remove these books from the schools. They should have never been in the schools to begin with. If you want your kids reading this nasty stuff then you can go to the library with your kids! The majority of parents do Not want their kids exposed to porn, how to use butt plugs, rape, how to have gay sex, and how many genders, and pronouns there are to choose from! There is a reason so many kids have mental health problems right now. Their being mentally abused by this indoctrination BS!
