Florida School Board Cuts Mic Of Dad Who Was Reading “Porn” Found In School Library

The school board in Clay County, Florida, cut the mic of a man who was citing alleged pornographic material to them - which he found in the school district’s library books.

The school board in Clay County, Florida, cut the mic of a man who was citing alleged pornographic material to them – which he found in the school district’s library books.

According to a Fox News report from Tuesday, Bruce Friedman, president of Florida’s No Left Turn in Education, a group dedicated to exposing left-wing politics in schools, went before the school board on June 30.

He opened his comments by saying, “I’m going to read things; if there’s children watching, cover their ears.”

Friedman attempted to read from a book called “Lucky” by Alice Sebold, which is a story of a college girl who survives a rape. She recounts the attack in the book, which is available in at least two public high schools in Clay County.

Yet as Freidman started, the board stopped him.

“I’m going to stop you right there, sir,” a school district official told him. “Turn off his microphone, please.”

When Friedman asked why, the official answered, “The problem is, sir, that these meetings are broadcast, there are people at home that are watching it on YouTube.

There are people that are watching it on community television. Are you going to listen? Or are you going to run your mouth?”

Friedman was told he could not read “pornography” during the broadcast.

“There are federal and state laws that prohibit you from saying the things that you’re getting out to say on television,” the official continued.

“There are state laws that prohibit and federal communications laws that prohibit you from publishing these things to a child. You don’t have the ability at this point to determine who’s watching the television show. And for you to say, ‘everybody cover your ears’ just doesn’t cut it,” the official told Friedman.

When Friedman kept objecting about not being allowed to speak, the official told him he could “talk about something besides reading pornography into a public television set.”

Freidman, who has a 15-year-old son, told the board he wanted to find out the process by which the book wound up in the library.

In the interview with Fox, Friedman said, “These books are so vile that reading any excerpt that I captured will end this interview.”

“Somebody failed drastically in their mission to protect children,” he added.

“As soon as I announced that I was going to read from some books that parents… found in the public school libraries that are clearly pornographic, [they] had the mic cut off.”

He said he wanted to protect his son and others by speaking out.

“In my experience, people don’t get off the couch until it’s on fire. People don’t work to protect their children until they’re harmed,” said Friedman.
