What a national embarrassing spotlight our Board of County Commissioners has shined on Citrus County with their ridiculous giggling decision to reject our public library from subscribing to a digital copy of the New York Times, when they already have hard copy subscriptions. Why? Because Floral City resident Scott Carnahan likes Trump and hates the “Fake News” that isn’t fake at all when reporting on Trump.
If you don’t believe that, just go to YouTube and watch the video’s of Trump’s lies, distortions, stumbling speech, calling the CEO of Apple Tim Allen, Tim Apple, or calling the tragic fire in Paradise, California, Pleasant, California, and on and on ... that is not fake video. It, unfortunately, is very, very real.
This is the same BOCC that voted to let the FDOT build the Suncoast 2 “anywhere north of 44 they wanted to go.” This is the same BOCC that wants to spend over $45,000 to study the impact of the Suncoast 2 on the Pine Ridge community ... something they should have done before giving the FDOT carte blanche to build the road through our county.
Now, with the national jokes by Twitter, USA Today, NBC reporting and video of the BOCC giggling about rejecting the library request to get the New York Times digital edition, the Suncoast 2 will be famous as the fastest way to drive through and beyond Citrus County Trump country.
Each commissioner has a right to their political beliefs; they do not have a right to censorship on our taxpayer funded public library.
