Banned Books 2021 – Crippled America: How to Make America Great Again

Marshall University does not ban books! The information is provided to let people know what has been banned/challenged elsewhere.


A Chattanooga (TN) Public Library employee recorded himself allegedly burning two library books by conservative authors — How to Talk to a Liberal (If You Must) and Crippled America — and posted the recording on Instagram. The employee claimed that the books were set to be removed and that officials told him he could take them. After the library administration investigated the incident for violations of library policy, the employee was fired. Library officials said, “The city of Chattanooga Human Resources Department completed its investigation of an allegation that books were removed from the Chattanooga Public Library’s Main Branch on Dec. 1, 2020. The city of Chattanooga has policies in place to protect the public’s interest, and we follow those directives.”
