Kirk Cameron to hit more public libraries in response to outcry from ‘abused’ parents


FIRST ON FOX: Speaking exclusively to Fox News Digital over the weekend, actor-writer Kirk Cameron announced that he will visit a number of public libraries to deliver his message of faith, freedom, family and love of country to millions of Americans. in big cities — people are clamoring against today’s woke culture “to push someone back,” he said.

“I’m on my way,” Cameron told Fox News Digital.

He “goes out” to talk to Americans in big cities, he said, especially in some public libraries, which have rejected previous requests to hold story hours at their facilities or never responded to book publishers’ requests to stock books. based on events there.

Cameron’s new book Growing Up is a children’s picture book that tells the story of an oak tree through the seasons of its life.

The story encourages children to develop and share patience, joy, kindness, compassion, self-control, and other biblical values.

He noted that at his recent appearances at the Indianapolis Public Library in Indianapolis and at the Scarsdale Public Library in Scarsdale, New York, many people came up to him and thanked him for sharing his Christian values ​​and beliefs.

“So now I go to Los Angeles, San Francisco, Portland, Seattle, Denver, Chicago, Detroit, Atlanta” and other cities, Cameron said, “and ask people to push somebody back and get up and bring it These are the kinds of values ​​that have liberated this country and brought its blessings.

Cameron added, “When those 50 libraries that woke up initially came to us and said they weren’t able to tell stories and that their communities weren’t interested in that kind of messaging, I didn’t believe them.”

Then, “when we pushed the two back, they opened up,” he said. “And we came out and were greeted by thousands of people in Indianapolis and Scarsdale.”

He continued, “The message I heard was, ‘Thank you for coming to our city.’ People have passed us by and thought that we want this woke mafia to teach our children these values ​​- and that’s not true. We love what you’ve brought us and we’re very grateful to have you here.”

In addition, Cameron said, “we’ve been inundated with emails and comments on social media, people asking us to come to their libraries.”

So he said: “I’m going – and I’m going.”

Cameron said her tour of public libraries could take months, and that her family, including her parents and sister, Candace Cameron Bure, is behind her in sharing her faith in traditional values ​​across the country. they stand

“Let their voices be heard”

“We’re jumping right into it because people are saying they want to be a part of something that tells other people, ‘We don’t want this woke trash,'” Cameron said of his new public library tour. We want the right values ​​for our children, families and communities to thrive.

Cameron and her publisher, Brave Books, said the Indianapolis and Scarsdale public libraries have previously held “drag queen story hours” at their facilities — events widely advertised on the libraries’ websites and elsewhere.

“A lot of people are looking for some way to be represented,” Cameron said. “They’re looking for some way to make their voices heard and show what they stand for.”

And “they see this as an opportunity to be a part of something that can turn the country around.”

At the end of the day, he added, “there are millions of Christians, parents, patriots and concerned Americans who understand that we are in a battle for the hearts and minds of our children.”

“And we’ll bring them back one story hour at a time — if that’s what it takes.”

Cameron says she and her publisher understand how to partner with America’s public libraries to provide storybook reading time.

“We are responding to the cries of parents and grandparents, even public school teachers and librarians,” he said, “Please! “We feel silenced, insulted and silenced by unions and other groups that do not represent the values ​​and aspirations of the people.”

And “I think if you look at the number of people that came for what we brought compared to what other bands brought, I think that speaks for itself,” he said.

“There were thousands of people,” he noted, even as the Indianapolis Public Library tweeted on Thursday, Dec. 29, that Cameron’s attendance was much lower than that.

“That’s what you do,” Cameron said of the comment, “when things don’t go your way.”

He also said, “But there are obviously thousands of people. We’ve had a lot of comments and testimonials that have actually been at events that counted the people there, and some said there were over 2,500 people at the Indianapolis library, it was 3,000 or more. said.

He added about the library events he hosts: “It’s unique. One of the things I’ve learned through this is that there are a lot of people who are very busy, raising families and going to work. They love this country and they see the values ​​in this country deteriorating politics will break.”

He said: “And I wondered, where is the line where people can finally say, ‘Enough?’ No longer; there will be no other …; Not anymore? And that line seems to be very clearly drawn in the hearts and minds of their children, especially the little ones,” Cameron said.

“There are many people who did not come to the polling stations to vote. Many people send their children to public schools, even though they know that these schools do not reflect their values.

But “when you come in at story time for the little ones,” Cameron said, “and you send men in women’s underwear and clown makeup and wigs to read them sex stories — it’s like the line that moms and dads and grandparents tell them. , ‘No more.'”

He added: “If it has to be there – we will fight there,” he said.

And “I’ll be in charge with the story hour,” he said.

Cameron also said, “Public perception is often not true. And I know from Hollywood, the land of make believe – where perception is not reality. There is a perception in the country that everyone is in favor of the transgender agenda, that everyone is progressive in their values, and that they want to support anti-God, anti-American ideologies. And this is not true,” he said.

“I saw the truth when I went to the libraries. That is, thousands of mothers and fathers, caring citizens, people of faith and character, who want to sing, “God Bless America” in the middle of the public library.”

He said a “grandmother in tears” came up to him and told him she was worried about what was happening to her country.

He told me: “I have 18 grandchildren. I see what’s going on. What can I do to protect them and help them and stop this awakening [culture] from winning their hearts and minds?’

He said he’s seen it over and over again.

Cameron said, “As much as I love the book I wrote and what Brave Books is doing with this book and others, I didn’t expect it to awaken a sleeping giant of parents and grandparents who want to join the army. mercy to protect our children.

He noted that Brave Books has published dozens of books set on Liberty Island — “And Liberty Island represents the United States of America,” Cameron said.

“We are the island of freedom in the world. We are where freedom lives. We are surrounded by other places that don’t have freedom.”

Cameron said: “I feel like that’s what we’re doing. We are working at the forefront of children’s storytime to save Liberty Island. So when people read these stories every month [from the Brave Books subscription series] – honesty, exposing corruption, gender, biblical wisdom, and more – will provide a steady stream of resources to teach families how to liberate Liberty Island.

Cameron added, “America has a lot of libraries — about 9,000 — and we go to the ones that need it the most.”

A spokesperson for Brave Books confirmed on Sunday: “Over the next few months we will be traveling and trying to get into as many libraries as possible. We’re all in it.”

Trent Talbot, CEO of Brave Books Houston, TexasIn an interview with Fox News Digital, “Kirk Cameron and Brave Book are fighting to ensure that America has a generation based on truth and strong morals – so that they are ready for the fight that lies ahead.”
