As the “textbook wars” heat up in California, those seeking to protect children from filth are raising fresh concerns about a book available to children through the school library known as Push. The book, listed under “African American Studies,” is primarily about incest but includes references to raping babies and sexual activities with dogs, among other perversions.
The novel, written by an author who goes by the name “Sapphire,” ostensibly tells the story of a 16-year-old obese and illiterate girl from the ghetto who is raped and impregnated by her father. It features language so outrageous it cannot be repeated here, including countless graphic references to anal sex, bestiality, oral sex, masturbation, incest, and more. It is written in “ghetto” English.
The outrageous situation was first discovered by Santa Ana Unified teacher Brenda Lebsack, a former school board member who has worked for years to expose what is happening in her district and in public schools across California. Her writings have been featured at The Epoch Times, the Heritage Foundation’s Daily Signal, and other major outlets.
“Is this how the black community wants their culture represented in our schools across America?” asked Lebsack, a veteran teacher and advocate for children, in a post about the book and its outrageous content on her website Brenda4Kids.com. “After reading this, I am ashamed to be an alumna of Santa Ana High School.” Her research found at least a dozen copies at the Santa Ana High School library.
Lebsack blasted the idea that raping babies and sex with dogs would be considered “diverse,” “inclusive,” or an appropriate way to “teach anti-racism” in public schools. And yet, California political and education leaders, including the California Teachers Association, are waging war on any effort to protect children. Lebsack vowed to consult the NAACP to see if that is how African Americans want to be represented.
Push has been banned in public schools in numerous jurisdictions, for obvious reasons. But under the recently approved AB 1078, Push and other books normalizing the most horrific perversion cannot be removed, regardless of how the community, parents, or the local school board feel about it. If school boards try to protect children, they will face fines and the state will provide the book anyway.
“From Temecula to Tallahassee, fringe ideologues across the country are attempting to whitewash history and ban books from schools,” said California Gov. Gavin Newsom as he signed the legislation into law. “With this new law, we’re cementing California’s role as the true freedom state: a place where families — not political fanatics — have the freedom to decide what’s right for them.”
The measure came partly in response to efforts by the Temecula school board refusing to offer books glorifying Harvey Milk, a prominent homosexual activist who raped multiple children, some of whom went on to commit suicide. Citing its praise for a “pedophile,” the board voted to reject the textbook for elementary students. That is when Newsom and the legislature sprang into action with the new law.
Despite their frenzy to keep Bibles and Christian literature out of government schools, radical leftists such as Gov. Newsom and his allies in the legislature believe this sort of monstrous filth is appropriate and needed for children. Any parent who loves their child will grab him or her and run for the exits like the building was on fire.
