The latest example of the GOP war on education and information comes in Gaetz's home state of Florida where a five-man board of commissioners denied a library request for a digital subscription to The New York Times because "it's fake news" and they "don't need a New York paper" in their county.
This is America, people. The library already has a print subscription that costs $3,000. The digital subscription would cost $2,700 and give all library users access to the newspaper. But, well, Gaetz's "real people" apparently don't need it as long as they have their Bibles, guns and fried foods. After all, we can't have them stumbling across stories about kefir or kamut or kale or quinoa, now, can we?
