Rest easy, innocent children of Gilbert, Arizona: You won't have to worry about being corrupted by your biology textbooks anymore! The Gilbert School Board voted Tuesday to remove a page from the high school's honors biology textbook, because they were worried it might be in violation of an Arizona law requiring that all instructional materials promote "childbirth or adoption" instead of abortion.


You see, the page in question has one whole sentence that mentions the abortion pill, and even worse, it discusses emergency contraception, which is exactly like an abortion except for how it isn't an abortion at all, except lots of wingnuts have a sincerely held belief that it is. Clear enough? Gotta teach science right.

An Arizona law passed in 2012 is quite clear on why the X-Acto Knives must be taken to the textbook:

In view of the state's strong interest in promoting childbirth and adoption over elective abortion, no school district or charter school in this state may allow any presentation during instructional time or furnish any materials to pupils as part of any instruction that does not give preference, encouragement and support to childbirth and adoption as preferred options to elective abortion.

And by golly, a Concerned Parent called up a board member to complain about the textbook, Campbell Biology: Concepts & Connections because page 547 is just loaded with slut pills. Oh, sure the page starts with a note that "Complete abstinence (avoiding intercourse) is the only totally effective method of birth control," but just look at the outrageous pro-abortion propaganda in the final paragraph of the section:

Now, even though the Arizona Department of Education and the school's lawyer said in September that the passage wasn't in violation of the law -- it says that Mifepristone exists, but it doesn't recommend it or say "go kill your babby and become a witch" -- the school voted 3-2 to remove the entire page. But it is definitely not censorship, says board member Julie Smith:

"By redacting, we are not censoring," she said. "This school district does offer sexual education classes. If we were censoring we would not offer anything on this topic whatsoever."

See? It's not censorship if you remove something, as long as you replace it with something else. That is just Logic.

Even better, board President Stacy Bunk said that several parents had already volunteered to help remove or redact the offending pages, which is certainly a happy thought. Can't you just see the decent church-going parents with their mean, pinched, bitter, evil faces, taking up Sharpies or razors to fix those terrible, terrible books that don't tell children about their sacred duty to give birth?

Well folks, we think we have a geopolitical relations first for an American president. We might need to consult with Doris Kearns Goodwin or Kevin Kruse, but we cannot recall a time one of America's purported enemies OR friends has called the president of the United States "retarded" or anything along those lines. We remember leaders hating American presidents. We remember them recoiling like UGH GET OFF ME when an American president tried to give them a friendly sensual love massage during the G8. We remember them literally attacking our democratic elections in order to prevent the inaugurations of potential presidents they despise and fear. But we don't remember anything like this.

President Hassan Rouhani of Iran, commenting on Donald Trump after the Trump administration threw some new sanctions at Iran on Monday:

Iran warned Tuesday that new U.S. sanctions targeting its supreme leader and other top officials meant "closing the doors of diplomacy" between Tehran and Washington amid heightened tensions, even as President Hassan Rouhani derided the White House as being "afflicted by mental retardation."

Here is the full quote, in case you were wondering if something was lost in translation, like that time Vladimir Putin called Trump "brilliant" and Trump was so excited he left a ring of orange jizz around the bathtub, but what Putin actually said in Russian more accurately translates as "colorful" or "shiny." There's no confusion here:

The news is coming at us so fast we have to double up stories -- like little children being crammed into border detention cells without enough blankets for everyone, that is what it is like. Tuesday, we learned Acting Customs and Border Protection Commissioner John Sanders, who has only been in the job for two months, will resign effective July 5, and will be replaced by current Acting ICE Director Mark Morgan.

The news of Sanders's resignation came by pure coincidence just hours after a CBP official told the Washington Post that 100 children would be returned to a Border Patrol detention facility in Clint, Texas; this was quite a surprise given that CBP had rushed to get over 300 kids out of that same border jail starting Monday, after lawyers reported the kids were filthy and poorly fed, and that the care of very young children had been left to slightly older kids -- like seven and eight years old. Probably just a coincidence that Sanders is deserting ship just as the news is full of just how horrible those baby jails were -- in this administration, that's something to be proud of.
