Tea Party Condemns Children's Book 'A Rule Is to Break: A Child’s Guide to Anarchy'
A humorous children’s book entitled 'A Rule Is to Break: A Child’s Guide to Anarchy' has come under fire from the Tea Party, which has often advocated rebellion against President Obama and Obamacare.
'A Rule is to Break,' which was released last month by publisher Manic D Press, is written and illustrated by husband-and-wife team John Seven and Jana Christy.
The book follows the character 'Wild Child' as she learns about being herself and the value of being unique, reports The Guardian.
The book's advice includes “don’t look like everybody else," "paint pictures on your T," "forget about grocery stores and get dirty in your garden," "educate yourself, use your brain" and “listen to the tiniest voice."
In its review, Publishers Weekly called the book: "The softer side of anarchy, with an emphasis on fun and independence, but also community and kindness."
However, the Tea Party publication Liberty News Network condemned the book as “downright shocking."
The Tea Party is also angry that Chicago educator and 1960s rebel Bill Ayers called the book “a delight to read” and says that “a children’s book on anarchy seems somehow just right: an instinctive, intuitive sense of fairness, community, and interdependence."
The Liberty News Network stated: "The book alone is horrendous enough. But it gets even worse when we realize Bill Ayers, radical terrorist leftist and friend of Obama, not only endorsed it through his Twitter account, his comments in support of the book are listed on the actual Amazon.com book page. Wow … If a person can be read by the company he keeps, what does this say about Obama?”
Publisher Jennifer Joseph told Publishers Weekly: “The Tea Party doesn’t like 'A Rule Is to Break' because it’s anti-capitalism."
