Rep. Jamie Raskin made an impassioned speech that criticized Republican efforts to ban books in the wake of a new report that found that banned book attempts reached a record high in 2022.

Attempted book bans and restrictions at school and public libraries continue to surge, setting a record in 2022, according to a new report from the American Library Association released Thursday. More than 1,200 challenges were compiled by the association in 2022, nearly double the then-record total from 2021 and by far the most since the ALA began keeping data 20 years ago.
"I've never seen anything like this," says Deborah Caldwell-Stone, who directs the ALA's Office for Intellectual Freedom. "The last two years have been exhausting, frightening, outrage inducing."

Wtf is on his head? Cultural appropriation is bad I thought?
He’s dealing with a very serious but curable cancer. He’s on treatment which made him lose a lot of hair, and that’s why he’s wearing the bandana on his head.
Democrats need to just leave children alone.
That’s the book that should be banned!
Is Jamie trying to dress more urban?
He is going through cancer treatment, you bully.
The kite runner was definitely a good book
Why does he dress like Prison Mike?
It’s his gangster Persona P stain
Jamie Raskin is so right!
