Governor Ron DeSantis has been taking a lot of heat for wanting certain books pulled off the shelves in Florida.
Democrats and the media are making him out to be some type of book-burning zealot that is out of control.
DeSantis decided to debunk that narrative by holding a televised presser to read the content from the books that he wanted to be pulled from the library that K-3 children have access to.
The content was so bad, the TV feed was cut to prevent pornographic images from being broadcast, reports Newsweek.
Now, think about that… adults watching TV were not permitted to see the books that are available for children as young as nine years old.
DeSantis called the press conference the “Exposing the Book Ban Hoax,” reports the Daily Caller.
He presented a five-minute long video covering books that were available to children under 10 in the school library.
Breitbart reported, “The books include ‘Gender Queer,’ which depicts masturbation and oral sex between girls, and ‘Flamer,’ which describes explicit sex acts between boys. ‘Let’s Talk About It’ is another book that explains to how men and women can masturbate, and shows how to perform anal sex.”
DeSantis Press Secretary Bryan Griffin noted, “Some of the media had to cut their feed when books with graphic content were displayed that were found in K-12 school libraries.”
Mahsa Saeidi, an investigative reporter at WFLA, stated, “When we were told sexually explicit content would be shown – we went down. I am not disputing that. I emailed my newsroom, concerned.”
The video that was played by DeSantis is in the tweet below and I can flat-out tell you, kids do not need to be seeing garbage like this. It is utterly disgusting…
Warning: This video contains pornographic images and content not suitable for children. If you can’t read these books at a school board meeting, should they be in a school? https://t.co/gHBoQh5eYa

As you can see above, Twitter has put a content warning on the video, but a seven-year-old child could walk into the library and check any of those books out.
