Gay activist skewers Jeb Bush in new satirical children's book

Last edited Tue Dec 29, 2015, 12:04 AM - Edit history (2)

Gay activist Konrad Juengling, known for purchasing the URLs of anti-gay lawmakers in Indiana and forwarding the domains to the Human Rights Campaign (more on that here), has come out with a new book lambasting Jeb Bush called Jeb's ABCs.

The Huffington Post just came out with a review of the book, calling it "brilliant" and "actually genius." Here's a synopsis from their article:

Jeb's ABCs, which focuses on The Republican presidential candidate's policies regarding the rights for queer people and women, welfare, people of color movements and climate change, operates in the framework of a children's ABCs book, though it's intended for adults. Each letter corresponds to a policy by Bush that actively works against the wellbeing of marginalized groups in America.

The book also covers what Jeb thinks about teacher's unions (spoiler: he hates them), immigrants (let's just say he finds them "fertile", and how gays = "sodomites". The book is in a children's format, but I wouldn't give it to a child. It uses Jeb's real life quotes to help the reader understand just how dangerous Jeb's views really are. Like Juengling said in the interview with Huff Post, "The overarching vision is to point out Jeb Bush's lack of insight having to do with minority people. That includes the LGBTQ population, people of color, women, immigrants -- basically anyone who isn't a wealthy, white man. For someone who wants to be president of one of the most powerful nations in the world, Jeb has a startling dearth of understanding of people."

Not only is Jeb Bush a terrible candidate for political office, he's kind of a wet rag overall. I'm glad there's a book out there criticizing him, which the HuffPost article pointed out is now available on Amazon. Let's help out an LGBT author who continues to fight against anti-gay politicians in creative ways!
