NAMPA, Idaho (CBS2) — About 50 or more parents, students, and others showed up Thursday evening to protest the Nampa School Board’s decision to ban a list of 22 books from school shelves.
A group called Idaho Liberty Dogs indicated it would show up to counter-protest, but that did not happen.
The board decided last month to ban the books and called them pornographic. The folks who showed up on Thursday said they wanted to show the trustees how many of them there were who wanted the board to reverse its decision.
CBS2 talked with board member Tracey Pearson, who said she saw the protesters and knew there would be backlash to the board’s decision. She said she thinks the protesters were the vocal minority.
A vocal minority? When one person called for said “ban”? Wow. Just wow.
