Report: Children Anthology of Fascism Planned


It’s a little early for Bedtime Reading, but these books really fit the category:

A conservative children’s book startup has begun publishing a series focused on conservative icons and what it views as childhood role models, including former President Reagan, actor John Wayne and social critic Thomas Sowell.

I hope they use diminutive words instead of big ones so Republicans can read them to their kiddies, unassisted.

The publisher of the books, Heroes of Liberty, was created to counter numerous children’s books focusing on progressive heroes like Ruth Bader Ginsburg, according to Heroes of Liberty editor Bethany Mandel.

  • The effort to counterprogram those books comes as right-leaning parents — and some on the left — seek to ban books on race and gender amid culture wars seeping into the nation’s school districts.

Wait. They are gonna release Reagan fanfic to counter Maus? HAWT!!1!

Driving the news: Heroes of Liberty recently released a book on Wayne targeted to children aged 7 to 12. That followed releases for books about Reagan, Sowell and newly installed Supreme Court Justice Amy Coney Barrett.

What 7-year old doesn’t want to learn about John Wayne (Gacy?) and how he failed as a song-and-dance man so Hollywood shoved him into westerns, and who has not made a film since [checks notes] before he died in 1979?

  • It plans additional releases every month about figures like Douglas MacArthur and former British Prime Ministers Margaret Thatcher and Winston Churchill.

Imagine the excited look on a 7-year old shining face, “Daddy, read me a bedtime story about how Justice Coathangers is limiting my future!” or, “Oh, I can hardly wait to hear how Margaret Thatcher destroyed miner unions… in Wales!”

    I distinctly remember John Wayne. He was the iconic definition of manhood (by the parental unit) in the days before the hippies swarmed across North America and asserted their presence, while (re)discovering classics such as “The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test,” and “Stranger In A Strange Land,” The Beatles, Country Joe And The Fish, The Stones, and so much more material fodder for the revolution. Too bad the revolution never happened as Nixon was proof of it’s failure, but I think we made the world a better place at least for a while…

    “right-LEANING parents — and some on the left”
    WTF? That doesn’t even make it to both siderism. There trying to blame the left and the centerists for what the extreme right is up to.

    It’s bitterly interesting to me that they’d choose John Wayne over, say, Dwight D. Eisenhower (indeed a conservative Republican, no matter how you slice it.) It also seems they’d have wanted to include Colin Powell. Ah, well.

    We could use a life of Smedley Butler, Marine general and two-time Medal of Honor winner, who was disappeared from the history books when he blew the whistle on fascist coup plotters in 1933. John Wayne was a WWII draft dodger.

      Spent some time in the Marine Corps. The marine drill sargeants made sure we learned about Smedley Butler. He was an American hero of the first water, and probably saved the republic from the 1933 version of fascism which was running amuck (sic) in the world as it is now…

    Yep, those folks really seem like they know what 7-18 yr old kids want to read, and they are making damn sure that the kids don’t read THOSE books.
