A Great Win at the Palmetto Library


Lots of stuff brewing!! Well, I guess it is October. The witches are hard at work!! But they did NOT put a spell on these unwavering, unstoppable, defenders of our country and liberty!!

With everyone manning their stations for the election, at the Palmetto Library we uncovered quite an interesting display. 

Inside the Library was a huge wall filled with LGBTQ information by way of posters, books, and flags. These large cardboard exhibits consist of squares of information about the LGBTQ movement over time. The MOST interesting piece of information was a square that housed Alfred Kinsey. Now for those who are not familiar with Mr. Alfred you can check him out by clicking here  A quick synopsis on Kinsey, he did experiments on children and babies pertaining to sex and orgasms along with having a philosophy that anything goes in sex including sex with animals and family members. But you can research more about this on your own.

Someone approached the librarian about the display and other political books that were displayed on shelves. This librarian was at a loss for words as were the Democrat workers outside when asked about their candidate! It’s funny how they react when they are put on the defensive…Nothing is about facts or knowledge only about chaos, lies, and destruction! 

I went to speak with the head Librarian in charge of all the libraries. I asked what the message was that this display was made to give to the public. She said it was just a Historical Era of information. If it was just for historical facts then why was Alfred Kinsey in the display? "He was just a part of history even if it was a bad part, or to show what not to repeat," she replied. I conveyed that just that one piece of information was giving out a message of sexuality to children for the overall theme along with the LGBTQ agenda being about sexual genders and promoting sexual partners of any kind. It was not clarified why he was placed in the exhibit. Funny how two past presidents were also in the exhibit as heroes for the movement, Clinton and Obama and Trump was as usual condemned.

Additional emails and phone calls were made to the county commissioners. The very next day Scott Hopes showed up! and ONE hour later the display was completely REMOVED!!!! A huge win for all!! It was a great effort of Team Work!! 

But our work is NOT DONE…..

I asked the librarian, “How does one get to put a display in the library?” Can anyone make a display? What are the procedures for these displays? She said anyone can submit a for a display. How about the history of the American Flag or a past president (45!!) or the constitution?? She said anything could be looked at to be put on display. 

History right now is being rewritten!!! Great history is going away and it is being replaced with lies. Children do not know what American culture is any longer. 

What if we took over the displays in the Libraries?? She said she has a hard time filling them. It could be a way to keep the true History and educate children not indoctrinate them. It would also get our hands, ears and eyes in the Libraries. We know that once these inappropriate books are out of the schools they will find other avenues and ways to spread their agendas!

Let’s team up! Become a part of... instead of combat against. 

There are six libraries in Manatee County. Is anyone interested in being a part of a display committee? We have someone interested in heading it up. Are you artistic, crafty, idea oriented, retired or ooking for something to do? It could be a lot of fun coming up with ideas and putting together fun projects. Email me and let me know if you are interested. 

Here are some other ideas that might be of interest and ways you could get involved to keep a watchful eye on this wokeness in the Libraries:

Library Locations 

This horrific display is gone! You can see pictures of the display below and find out more about ALSO YOUTH who put up the display, (We will be investigating next!!) Thankfully, the librarian confirmed that it would not be traveling to other locations….especially now that it has been taken down before its ending date.

We have to stay one step ahead. We knew eventually we would have to start monitoring the libraries and now the time has come! 

It was also noticed that particular books are on display near the voting rooms and those areas. Particular books are on shelves that are demeaning to Trump with pro Obama right next to it. They are crafty and playing tricks. This has to STOP!! Only we can stop them. We need volunteers to go into the other libraries and see what they are displaying and promoting. If you live near a library please take some time to check it out. Take pictures and report back. We have to strike while the iron is HOT!! We’ve applied the Pain and Pressure (aka Glen) don’t let up! Let them know we are watching. Put them on alert to know at any time we WILL SHOW UP!

Email your ideas and thoughts. 

We had a great WIN let’s keep it going!! 

Your Patriot Friend and Sleuth,

Deanna Brinkley
