They have gone TO far this time!!!

The American Library Association is going to ban The Hunger Games, from public library's. Can you believe it? It is third on their list of top banned books. They are going to ban it, just like with a whole bunch of my other favorite books. They are baning it. the reasons are because "it is anti-ethnic, anti-family, satanic, and violent." Wow. It's violent? No duh! But Satanic? Really? And anti family? Really? Katniss does most of these things to protect her family! I don't know what anti-ethnic means but I'm sure it's just a ridiculous. I'm also sure they are just doing it because it's becoming so huge, like Twilight and Harry Potter (which are also banned books) So stupid. They do it to "protect" us from "inappropriate subjects". I don't want to be "protected" from my Favorite book!!!!!  To read more about this go to this website which will tell you more about it. http://www.care2.com/causes/banned-books-the-hunger-games.html I may have to protest.  Don't let them ban our books! Bri π

P.S. Oh my gosh. This is really stupid. It has also been banned for Sexuality.  Really? There is no sexuality in The Hunger Games! Human beings are IDIOTS!!! This just adds to my hatred of the government. GRRRRR!!!!!

  1. I think that protection from inappropriate subjects is the family's job, not the governments'.

    1. Definitely, The government should fricking butt out. Book banning is a primitive practice, have we learned nothing from Fahrenheit 451? Which is officially the best banned book ever!

  2. Woah... They banned Fahrenheit 451? That's daring. I've never read it, but Dad explained the plot to us. Our library once did a presentation on it. I think it was like a movie....

  3. Yeah I know, I Have read it and I loved it. I think the government is ridiculous. There is such Irony to the banning of Fahrenheit 451. It's a banned book about burning banned books. But so many other great books are banned also. For example: To Kill a Mockingbird, A Wrinkle in Time, Little Women, Roll of Thunder Hear My Cry, The Diary of Anne Frank, The Bible (Siriously), Green Eggs and Ham, Bridge to Terribithia, and The Lorax. All of these books are good, and they are ridiculously banned,
