They conservatives and the far right complain about censorship of Trump and others not being allowed to say what they want on Twitter and Facebook, both private companies who take off their sites political lies from both sides. At the same time these same people are burning books, figuratively, and changing school curriculums in government owned libraries and schools, which really is censorship. Florida, one of the worst states for education to begin with, now has rejected 45 math books because they reflect CRT teachings. They have done this but have not explained how the math books do that. And this is not the end. This will only get worse as each GOP controlled state will try to outdo the other states in their censorship of libraries and schools.

It's great that states still have some autonomy left.

Maybe expanding this autonomy is the key to the future of this changing nation.

People that like Florida's laws can move there and live with like-minded people.

People that oppose Florida's laws can move to New York state and live with like-minded people.

Seems to be a win-win for everyone.

No need for a "civil war."

Just let the states become more independent.

Hmm… when liberals make changes to school curriculums and introduce new school text and/or library books do they not also *gasp* stop teaching the old school curriculums and discard old text and/or library books?

BTW, links to support your assertions would have been helpful.

Righties are hypocrites when it comes to free speech. With one side of their mouths, they claim to be for it, and with the other side, they demand censorship of any idea they don't like.

I do not want to censor people's views, I do want speech that encourages violence through lies censored as in do not yell fire in a crowded theater. All other political speech is fine with me. Are you saying you want to encourage violence as long it is your side of the aisle? And banning books of any kind is a real move toward autocratic rule. And in Florida the law does not allow anything to be taught that can make a person feel uncomfortable due to their race or religion. If that law is followed to its far right position, you can say we had slavery in the USA, but you can not say that the white population enslaved blacks. And how do we discuss the stealing of the nation from the natives or taking part of northern Mexico from the Mexicans. All of these might make someone feel bad about themselves. When you start to censor the truth, it never ends.

Show us the Florida math textbooks where this is happening. Oh wait, you can't, because DeathSantis won't release the book titles.

I am still serving a 1000 Year ban from a huge Right Wing pundits Message Board for asking a Moderator a simple question. One of the more popular topics on that Message Board at the time I was banned for my speech was how all the evil Left Wing social media sites were "unfairly violating Right Winger FREE SPEECH". So when I see Right Wingers piss and moan about their First Amendment rights getting violated on any social media platforms and see the anti FREE SPEECH rules of places like TRUTH SOCIAL I just laugh sand laugh. Then again I say as I have so often said, hypocrisy, thy name is Republican!

Conservatives are selfish, dishonest, hypocritical assholes, plain and simple. They project, they love censoring things they don't like as we see with all the moronic book banning they have going on.

This thread is already a dumpster fire at its creation.
As per usual, censoring speech about censoring is hilarious concept just I the title, let alone the OP's posts.

Nobodies actually burning books and removal of math books ALSO ha to do with removing common core, not just CRT indocrination.

Letting states become more independent is in violation of the US Constitution that made the federal government more powerful than the state. the Articles of Confederation put more power in the hands of the states but the frames learned that in just a few years the country was ungovernable because of that power imbalance. That is why the AoC was scrapped the US Constitution was created. You didn't learn US history or civics.

Telling people to move to a different state was also a claim of the racists/bigots in the American south who opposed equal rights for the US as a whole. You are on the wrong side of history and equal rights.
