Sandcrawler PSA: Half Pint is Raycyst!

JFC!

The board of the Association for Library Service to Children (ALSC), a division of the American Library Association, made the unanimous decision to remove the name of author Laura Ingalls Wilder from a major children’s book award at a meeting in New Orleans on Saturday.

The name of the prize has been changed from the Laura Ingalls Wilder Award to the Children’s Literature Legacy Award, the Guardian reports.

The association, which took the vote at its board meeting in New Orleans, said the vote “was greeted by a standing ovation by the audience in attendance,” Fox News reports.

Wilder is best known for her beloved Little House on the Prairie novels, which the ALSC has stated “includes expressions of stereotypical attitudes inconsistent with ALSC’s core values” based on Wilder’s portrayal of black people and Native Americans.

Dumbasses!

you first have to make everyone else forget it.

And that is the way history dies,
to a standing ovation.

6 Agreed that the ruling locusts of the "Liibree" society are both blind and deaf. But I take heart that such ignorance makes more room at the top.

The standing ovation to virtue signalling is spew-worthy.
