Public library manager fired after staff allegedly tried to stop Kirk Cameron’s reading event
A Tennessee public library director has reportedly been fired following allegations that he and some library staff tried to shut down a children’s reading event last month featuring conservative actor Kirk Cameron.
The Sumner County Library Board voted 4-3 on Wednesday to fire Hendersonville Public Library Director Allan Morales, according to a report from News Channel 5 Nashville.
Morales lost his job after last month’s Children’s Library event which featured Kirk Cameron, swimmer Riley Gaines and duck dynasty star Missy Robertson. It was Missy Robertson who accused the librarian of organizing a campaign against the event, although she did not use his name.
“He started a campaign in the community to shut down [the event] without officially canceling it because he knew then it wouldn’t be good for their library,” Robertson allegedly said on a recent BlazeTV episode of “Unashamed with Phil & Jase Robertson.”
She alleged that while she and others were trying to shoot promotional videos, some library staff began behaving in a disruptive way to prevent the crew from recording footage.
“They slam books together. They hit the cupboards. They’re screaming out loud,” Robertson said.
In a Facebook post, Kirk Cameron referred to the “wicked repulsion” of “a disgruntled librarian”.
“Despite the rain and the nasty pushback (from a disgruntled librarian), an OVERFLOW crowd of families, mayors, county commissioners and celebrities greeted us and joined us at the library in Hendersonville, TN. for singing the National Anthem, the Pledge of Allegiance to the Flag, praying and teaching faith in God and moral values to our children,” Cameron wrote.
Kirk Cameron has held children’s reading events at public libraries across the country to promote patriotism, faith and other values at a time when children are being subjected to left-wing indoctrination, including story time drag queen.
“I join with grandparents, parents, patriots, worried Americans, to reclaim in prayer and determination the hearts and minds of our children. The Republic depends on it,” the former Growing pains the star said in a recent interview on SiriusXM’s “Breitbart News Daily” with host Alex Marlow.
