New Jersey Teachers Can Now Give Obscene Material to Minors

Published on

Republicans across the country have been working hard to protect children’s innocence and life from dangerous groomers that seek to sexualize or abuse them. When Republicans succeed in preventing pornographic material from being made available to children at public or school libraries, it’s not a small victory.

You’ve probably heard stories about angry parents who are upset that schools and libraries offer such materials to children.

It’s absurd to think this is a battle that must be fought, but the truth is the radical left is hell-bent on exposing kids to pornography and is aggressively fighting against efforts to remove this garbage from schools.

Democrats in New Jersey last week introduced Senate Bill 2421. Euphemistically called the “Freedom to Read Act,” it exempts teachers and librarians from state obscenity law but also allows them to receive monetary compensation for being criticized.

I wish I could say that I was just joking.

State Sens. Andrew Zwicker and Teresa Ruiz are the main sponsors of this bill.

The bill seeks to amend state laws on obscenity that criminalize the distribution of obscene materials to minors. It adds that “it is an affirmative defense to prosecution […] if the defendant is a member of the teaching staff, including a library media specialist in a school, who is performing the person’s duty …”

Teachers and librarians are not covered by the obscenity laws protecting children. What does New Jersey law define as obscenity material? The law defines “obscene materials” as any depiction of specific anatomical areas, sexual activities, or live performances in images, publications, sound recordings, films, or videos that use posing or composition to create “sensuality of sufficient impact to focus prurient attention on the area or activity.”

Ask yourself why a teacher or librarian would need legal protection to show obscene materials to children. The bill not only protects educators from losing their jobs for refusing to remove these materials from schools but also from being fired if they refuse to do so. It also enshrines them as “members of a protected group” who are protected by anti-discrimination law.

The motives of the politicians are no longer hidden. You can read the bill here. It doesn’t sugarcoat their intentions. Teachers and librarians are protected from being sued for showing pornographic material to children.
