Under normal circumstances, illustrations from an elementary school book that the lieutenant governor displayed at a press conference would be considered fair game for a news publication. However, not in this case.
Rather than using the illustrations themselves, the Rhino is providing a link to those illustrations with a warning that this link is to graphic illustrations of sex acts that many may not consider appropriate. However, they are from a book currently being used in in North Carolina elementary schools. Here is the link: https://ibb.co/qRKqd9j
The News & Observer has confirmed Lt. Gov. Mark Robinson’s statement that the illustrations are from a book that is available in some public school libraries in the state.
This is what Robinson called “filth” and has stated repeatedly that he does not believe it is appropriate for elementary school children, whether it is in the library or used in the classroom.
Because Robinson made strong statements against this type of graphic sexual material being used in North Carolina’s public elementary schools to teach children about transgenderism and homosexuality, he is being viciously attacked by the left.
At the press conference, Robinson was asked if the problem he had with the illustrations was that they depicted homosexual sex acts and Robinson pointed to the illustration and said, “I’m talking about things of this nature, whether it be heterosexual or homosexual doesn’t matter.”
He added, “Any type of highly sexual material of this nature does not need to be spread in the schools.”
Robinson, who is North Carolina’s first black lieutenant governor, also displayed several of the emails that he and his office have received regarding this latest controversy (some of which are shown below).
