Mid-Continent Public Library board member believes ‘homosexual activists’ and ‘globalists’ are driving the library’s agenda

It’s typically pretty easy to find a seat at the monthly meetings of Mid-Continent Public Library’s board of trustees. Tuesday’s meeting, though, was standing room only.

The unusually high attendance followed the recent publication of an editorial by one of the library’s board members in a Platte County newspaper. The editorial criticized Mid-Continent’s LGBTQ-centric materials and programs like Trans 101.

“A once-safe community setting known as the public library has become a space that, in the guise of intellectual freedom, wants to change thinking on voyeurism and gender confusion, while promoting materials and programs that lead children toward being sexually exploited,” wrote Rita Wiese, who represents Platte County on the MCPL board.

Later in the editorial, Wiese calls the United Nation’s LGBT rights advocate Vitit Muntarbhorn a “homosexual activist” and blames “globalists” who “wage war on the family and religious foundations to protect the ‘diverse’ from stigma” for changes happening at the library—i.e., a class educating people about trans issues.

They have such great programs and leadership. Their director and staff are fabulous and they work creatively and competently with the other library systems in the area. I am happy and not surprised that their board is not aligning with these hateful views of one member.
