Todd Starnes Claims a Library Banned His Book, Completely Ignoring All Their Other Books Written by Conservatives

Todd Starnes is furious that a small library in Alaska won’t accept a donation of his book. Shelf space is limited so they have to be selective and Starnes’ book didn’t receive many professional reviews (the usual bar for a book’s inclusion in many libraries).

Also, you know, no one wants to read Todd Starnes’ book.

But Starnes knows this is really oppression!

I’m just glad the Cordova Public Library has ample room on their shelves for the works of Bill Clinton, Hillary Clinton, Jimmy Carter, Al Gore and President Obama. No wonder they don’t have room for the bad boy of the literary world.

See?! A liberal conspiracy!

I wonder why Starnes left out the part about how the same library has books written by Laura Bush, Rush Limbaugh, Pat Robertson, Ronald Reagan, and Newt Gingrich.

Sorry. I wasn’t supposed to tell you that. It’s a liberal conspiracy!!!

Starnes is taking the news of his “rejection” well:

I can’t say I’m all that surprised that the public library refused to accept my book. A few years ago Amazon banned my second book, “Dispatches From Bitter America.” They said it contained offensive material.

You mean the book that Amazon has right here…?

Starnes has to know his audience is so dumb, they would never bother fact-checking his articles. And he’s right, given the nature of the comments on his site.

It doesn’t mean the rest of us can’t do it for him.

If the library does end up accepting his book, full of stories of Christian persecution like the kind he just experienced, let’s hope they file it in the fiction section where it belongs.
