Liberals destroyed libraries

I no longer allow my six grandchildren to go to Spokane public libraries, as they no longer offer a safe environment for children or the general public.

My youngest grandchild was horrified recently when she had to use the restroom. She described a “smelly lady that was washing herself in the sink.” Really? And now the city is promoting morally bankrupt deviants to dress in drag and have “storytime”? And what about the poor library employees who endure these people on a daily basis, cleaning up their vomit, decontaminating chairs or calling the police on unruly patrons? God bless them for their patience. We are Seattle now: a failed Third World hellhole.

It was bad enough that our libraries became shoot-up centers for drug addicts and day care centers for the homeless. Now our once great public libraries are in the sewer, thanks to liberal Democrats. Unfortunately, Democrats destroy everything they touch. Look around America and see the destruction: Los Angeles, Seattle, Detroit, St. Louis, Oakland, Cleveland … on and on.
