Pride bats aloft

The San Francisco Public Library posted on Facebook a couple of hours ago:

SFPL exhibits are intended to address social issues of the time. We do not endorse nor advocate the viewpoints of the exhibits. Due to concerns raised by library patrons, we are altering the degenderettes antifa art exhibit at the Main Library to remove an offensive shirt, a piece of artwork that could be interpreted as promoting violence, which is incompatible with our exhibitions policy. See the attached poster for more info about the exhibit.

“…pride bat in hand” – ready to club a woman. If it were a member of the KKK with a burning cross would the SFPL be celebrating the “defiance” with an exhibition? Museums and libraries do have exhibitions of racist violence, of course, but not in celebration.

Strange times.
