‘Marxist Lesbian’ American Library Association head says conservative book bans are ‘attacks on children’

The new head of the American Library Association (ALA) weighed in on conservative efforts to remove kids’ books with sexually-graphic LGBTQ themes from public libraries, calling these efforts “attacks on children.”

ALA president Emily Drabinski spoke on the New York Times podcast “The Ezra Klein Show” Tuesday with guest host Tressie McMillan Cottom about the current debate over what the left has deemed conservative book bans. She also commented about various U.S. states looking to leave the ALA over Drabinski’s openly progressive politics. 

The Montana State Library Commission voted in July to withdraw from the American Library Association after Drabinski posted a tweet celebrating her election as president of the ALA last year.

Drabinski’s tweet read, “Hey, I cannot believe that a Marxist lesbian who believes that collective power is possible to build and can be wielded for a better world is the president-elect of @ALALibrary.”
