“COEUR d’ALENE, Idaho — From her office next to the public computer terminals, Bette Ammon finds herself peering through a window to watch patrons moving through the Coeur d’Alene library’s nonfiction stacks.

Someone has been hiding books lately — specifically, those that explore politics through a progressive lens, or criticize President Trump. They wind up misfiled in out-of-the-way corners where readers will be sure not to find them.

“I am going to continue hiding these books in the most obscure places I can find to keep this propaganda out of the hands of young minds,” the mystery book relocator wrote in a note left for Ms. Ammon, the library director, in the facility’s comment box. “Your liberal angst gives me great pleasure.”

This is not the library’s first battle with book hiders - after white supremacists invaded the area in the 1980s, the city was awarded the prestigious Raoul Wallenberg Award for Civic Courage for its efforts in resisting the racists. With the money presented with the prize the city augmented their library’s catalogue of books on human rights, women’s’ issues, LGBTQ rights and such. The books started to go missing with such regularity they had to be locked away in a glass case............................................

Anyone with even just sufficient powers of observation can see that Trumpists have a inherent aversion to acquiring knowledge, and at least one in Coeur D’Alene, Idaho is determined that no one else will be able to obtain any on their watch.

1. "Your liberal angst gives me great pleasure."

Perfectly reveals the malice these degenerate assholes cultivate and nurture.

4. Remember when Joseph Welch asked, "Have you no decency?"

Turns out the answer was "No."

3. Might be one of my cousins.

I have several TrumpHumper cousins in Coeur D'Alene. Though I doubt they would ever step foot in a library.

Once she spoke out against their supreme leader she became one of the lost children to be attacked and shamed as much as possible. To them she is now the enemy to us she is useless...

10. If anything, she's protected him

Yeah, there was a bit of criticism back when she had a book to promote, but she's pretty much vanished since.

And I'm *STILL* waiting for all those hours of tape of Trump going on racist rants that she claimed to record... She played the #resistance for suckers.
