A Tennessee lawmaker wants to make sure the public has a vehicle to exercise a degree of control over what happens at public libraries.
State Representative Andy Holt (R) tells OneNewsNow that many Tennessee residents are alarmed by the events occurring at their local libraries.
"Unfortunately for us in Tennessee, events … are being held in public libraries here in our own state that would be, in my opinion, unfit for pretty young children," Holt laments.
Drag queen story hours are not the only thing that have many parents alarmed; other events promote the homosexual lifestyle. So in response, the state representative has introduced the Parental Oversight of Public Libraries Act.
"It goes through and gives a designation of how a five-member panel would be elected and maintained, and these individuals would be elected through a process that is separate from the current library oversight committees, which have already been formed here," Holt explains.
So the public would elect the panel and could hold them accountable if a library approves events like drag queen story hours for children.
As OneNewsNow has previously reported, conservative parents are not the only ones who oppose the drag queen story hour phenomenon. A drag queen known as Kitty Demure posted a YouTube video earlier this year saying, among other things, that there is no reason to normalize the drag queen fetish or make it seem attractive to innocent children.
