Dad Arrested over Pornographic Content 9th Grade Novel

A reading assignment has some parents in New Hampshire confused and upset.

The controversial book “Nineteen Minutes” by Jodi Picoult is required reading for some 9th grade students at Gilford High School. The book is a fictional story about a school shooting and has been part of the curriculum since 2007.

School officials say that the book contains important themes, but parents say that message is overshadowed by what some call pornographic content on one page.

The book was assigned to students last Monday, but the school failed to give parents of freshmen students notice of the sexually explicit content in the novel. One page of the book contains a graphic description of rough sex between two teenagers.

Some parents are outraged, and attended a school board meeting to make their feelings known.

William Baer, whose 14-year old daughter is a student at the school, was one of the parents who spoke out at the meeting. He was promptly arrested for doing so:

Baer tells EAGnews he became aware of the book’s objectionable material purely by chance. A family friend was visiting last Wednesday and talking to Baer’s 14-year-old daughter about how things were going in school. When she mentioned that she’d just been assigned the novel, the friend picked up the book and casually opened it to page 313 which contains a very graphic description of a sexual encounter between two adolescents. The friend was aghast as he read the passage, and asked Baer if he was aware of the book’s content.

“I was shocked when I read the passage, and not much shocks me anymore,” Baer says. “My wife was stunned by the increasingly graphic nature of the sexual content of the scene and the imagery it evoked.”

Warning: This is an extract from the book assigned to 14 year-olds in NH. No newspaper would print it: “He pinned her hands over her head and ground his hips against hers. She could feel his erection, hot against her stomach … Yeah,’ he groaned, and her pushed her thighs apart. And then suddenly Matt was inside her, pumping so hard that she scooted backward on the carpet, burning the backs of her legs. … (H)e clamped his hand over her mouth and drove harder and harder until Josie felt him come. Semen, sticky and hot, pooled on the carpet beneath her.”

Adrien Nash:  What would have been crisis making would have been if a parent took their two minutes for reading the passage out loud, with the challenge to the policeman to arrest the reading parent afterward for public indecency or open distribution of pornography. Take him to jail, and charge him, or charge the school board for promulgating pornography to children. You need a Sheriff, elected by the People, -not a Police Chief appointed by leftist politicians, to arrest the school board members who voted to approve the use of that book for minors, as well as the teachers who used it. What is otherwise next down the road is the same sort of text but involving males. Male on male rape. That is what their goal is in order to destroy all moral authority associated with sex. Let the morals of Gomorrah rein across America. Then they will be freed from the umbrella of Judeo-Christian sin and guilt that covers our American landscape. Their goal is to be free of all guilt since they have no desire to be free from carnal desires of any and all sorts (sex with students? there’s no atmosphere that says that is immoral since there is nor moral atmosphere at all in public schools.) To them, freedom means freedom from guilt, not freedom from tyrannical government. ~~~

Bob EvansThe power of the state to deprive a citizen of liberty should only be exercised for reasons of high import. To keep a petty bureaucrats from having her petticoats ruffled is not sufficient cause. And why in God’s name is a police officer authorized to arrest a citizen for violating a bureaucrat’s policy restricting speech. I presume the woman officiating at the meeting is a district administrator. She – and the police officer – should be fired. Yes, the officer too, because I expect the enforcers of the law to recognize when the arrest power of the state is being misapplied.

Kristin Moore CravensI found the particular page that this father was objecting to, and it is like reading a pornographic x rated movie script.. Disgusting! My role as a mother is to protect what my kids see and read as much as possible. If this was required reading I would stand up and scream from the rooftop, that my children would not be reading this book. Especially not at 14. Just my opinion.

Derek AndersonHe should have proceeded as follows:
1. Hand a copy of the lewd content to each board member and media present. Copy also includes the names of the teachers, principles, and superintendent responsible.
2. Set his timer for 2 minutes.
3. Read the content out loud, clearly and slowly.
4. At 1:45, state that this is required reading for 9th graders. Name the teacher, principal, and superintendent.
5. When 2 minutes are up, next person in line reads it again.
6. Continue until the clock runs out. Beat the board at their own game. 2 minutes is plenty enough time per person.

Bob EvansKent, I’m more than a little concerned about the subject matter of the novel Baer objected to. Great novelists and poets have been able to write about love without subjecting us to graphic images of rough sex and semen puddles. It’s not a matter of “shielding” children so much as preventing them from being coarsened and dehumanized by those who equate innocence with naievity and depravity with sophistication.

Bob EvansHi Kent… I know my sons came across this kind of reading on their own, as did I. But it’s a huge difference I think when it’s taught in school. That puts a kind of imprimatur on it – and I think that kind of cultural approval should be reserved for literature of enduring value – in other words, the classics.

Derek AndersonBob, I agree with you on all points. This book was written 7 short years ago. Not nearly long enough for it to stand the test of time. Shock value content will not rise to the level of classic, or even relevant. It takes zero talent to pen explicit sex scenes between teenagers. When teachers/schools serve up these types of dime-store books, they do nothing to elevate the minds of young students.
(Also, as a father of girls, I don’t relish the thought of them being in a classroom with hormone dripping teenage boys after they all read and discussed a school-approved graphic teenage sex scene.)

I think personally that Paul Reville is likely a pedo.

EDIT: I Google this guy and nothing shows up under news in a custom range except for the last year?? He was the secretary of education for the last 5 years for the state of Massachusetts?? I would think this guy would be all over? Why no news articles on Google??

The sexualization of children has been a known part of the agenda since Alduous Huxley’s novel Brave New World was published in 1932. Mind you, this was not some wild speculation on Huxley’s part, but straight from a ruling elite blueblood who had seen the future’s blueprint. If you haven’t read this novel it’s time. If you read it a long time ago, re-read it just to see how much has come true in your lifetime.

Why is everyone just sitting there passively while this guy is arrested?

Just read another article where a woman was quasi-arrested (nothing legal) and detained and harassed for reciting the Constitution while going through airport screening — and again, no one else stepped up or said anything.  WTF, people?

A.Nash:  This slowing boiling pot feels pretty darn comfortable.  It’s a tad bit hot for my taste, but this frog isn’t concerned enough to do something drastic like jump out.  That would be alarmist and extremists.  I ain’t no paranoid conspiracy fanatic who thinks that the government doesn’t have our best interest at heart instead of its own power.  That’s just crazy thinking, -although it does seem to be getting a bit on the unnecessarily hot side in this pot.

Because like MOST people in these here Untied States, (spelling intended) they are chicken shit to stand up for what is right and let the wrong happen right in front of their faces out of _____ , you fill in the blank as all is appropriate. We are loosing against our handlers because we will not stand together, We the People my ass! It is easier to do nothing and go home at night than to fight this crap and suffer a little in the name of right and wrong… then we actually have the gall to say that the system, THE SYSTEM, is failing our children !!! We the People do not even deserve the insult of pathetic. We the People are so far beyond pathetic at this point.

Ah….an Awakening!

That cop NEEDS an asswhipping BADLY. Begging for it. And when they keep asking for it, they will receive it…in SPADES.

On my last return to US, at LAX Terminal 4, I was flagged for “extra scrutiny” because I refused to tell the immigrant Filipino ICE officer where I would be staying in US. I could barely understand his speech.

Then had the pleasure of watching a Mexican immigrant ICE supervisor pull a Black Los Angeles Laker and his White girlfriend out of the line, walk them through security check while stating “You don’t need to wait in line, I am a BIG FAN!.” I know that they were also walked through security in Taiwan, I was on same flight. I watched it happen.

Lord knows American Blacks commit no violence.

Then, I had a Japanese immigrant ICE officer give me the third degree over where I would be staying in US. Warning me to “tell the truth or you can be prosecuted for PERJURY.”

I told him this: I’ll stay where I please. And even if I did tell you one adress, and didn’t stay there? It isn’t PERJURY you genius, it is an American CHANGING HIS MIND OVER WHICH HOTEL HE STAYS AT.

He didn’t like my reply, I didn’t like his attitude. A fair exchange.

My family has been in the US since 1680.
1680. 1680. My ancestors FOUGHT a REVOLUTION. I won’t put up with this crap much longer.

Two weeks later…someone shot up Terminal 4 and supposedly killed a TSA agent (which I do not believe happened). I think it was a planned PR event to distract from TONS of COMPLAINTS at Terminal 4, LAX.

Bottom line: if you see a fellow citizen being abused by authorities….watch closely. Do not confront the offending authority…but let that fellow citizen know you are watching and documenting what they endure. Give them your number, in case they need witness to fascism.  When the worms turn….America will “get right” again. Not before. Bullies only understand a stout punch on the nose.

Bystander Effect. One of, if not, the biggest and worst parts of group mentality psychology. “Someone else will say/do something, so I will remain silent/inactive.”

It is terrible, but very, very prevalent. Also a good reason for why a ‘revolution’ hasn’t fully developed. No one is stepping up to be a voice of leadership, as much as people on our forums/comment boards tout not being a sheep, they will not lead, only follow.

***Baer, who is an attorney, told EAGnews that the school “has no business introducing such themes” to students – ***
You don’t get it?? Someone behind a desk approved that book.
They did NOT read it; it was not even scanned.
Somewhere money changed hands..wanna bet??
Curriculum changes every 2 or 3 years to NOT update is to enhance publishing companies that will be out of business when all schools succumb to online instructions.
Follow the money!!!

No disrespect but you are wrong on a complete 180. Not only did they know it was there, it probably is the only reason the book is mandatory and why they are trying to hide it on one page only. I commend this Dad.

The literary choices contain inappropriate sexual content for the age ranges for a specific reason. Refer to the Daily Sheeple article on Common Core with a link to Dr. Duke Pesta’s speech. It’s very enlightening.

The inclusion of this type of material as required reading for 14-year-olds is an obvious example of a planned, POLITICAL (i.e., indoctrination) agenda. The key is to find who was behind the decision to include this book in the school curriculum, and why. I fact, if the book was written specifically for teenagers, the question is why was that type of material was included in such a book originally. This whole affair, INCLUDING THE ARREST AND HANDCUFFING of the parent, represents the tip of an iceberg and should be given widespread publicity and discussion.

It is about parental choice and being informed. It is about out of bounds dictates by government. It is about resigned acceptance that what government does is not for you to debate or violence will be used against you as intimidation to the other sheep.

But no newspaper will print it. If something like this was printed in a 9th grade book even just 20 years ago I see jail time for the one who authorized it.

Hey evil genius, it isn’t about whether teenagers are having sex, although that is bad enough because we all know how emotionally and physically prepared they are to handle it. This is about parental rights. The fact that you completely missed the point shows the level of degradation you yourself have embraced. You know there used to be time in this country, not so long ago, when people actually stood up for decency. That father who tried to protect his daughter was doing his job. I pray to God you never have a child if you are so cavalier in accepting that they be dragged into the slime with these worthless, clueless, despicable losers put in charge of public education. You are just another ugly citizen who has absolutely no idea what being an American is because sadly your parents obviously never taught you. Pathetic and stupid. Gee maybe they should just hand Playboy magazines out when the kids enter the school doors. Perhaps we should all send our daughters out with a six pack of condoms when they go out on Saturday night, because you never know what stranger they might decide to hook up with.

One more point. If you go to the website of the book’s author, you’ll see her description of the book plus her own video about it. […,…], The central theme of the book seems to be that a high school kid commits a school shooting because he has been “bullied”. The author says that these school shooters have been victimized because they are different somehow, including because of their SEXUAL ORIENTATION. Those of us who are not sheeple know that virtually all of the (genuine, not staged) school shootings arose because the shooter became psychotic as a result of antidepressant drug usage. So, the drug companies would love her book because it deflects people away from learning the truth. The book seems to be a sickening amalgamation of various “politically correct” indoctrination agendas. The only thing not mentioned is the inclusion of man-made global warming. But I bet that’s included somewhere in the book, too.

I’ve seen similar crap in my daughter’s ELEMENTARY SCHOOL readings, maybe not this explicit, more subtle but the meaning is clear to an observant reader. Of course the daughter didn’t understand it consciously, but they are not communicating to the child’s conscious mind, they are communicating to the subconscious. You can often see the same subtle garbage in children’s programming, so keep them off the TV. These are the mind control tactics these freaks play with our kids during their education; turning children in to sex objects. Because most if not all of the elite class of people who control education are pedo’s and want to turn back the clock to the Roman empire days when the Caesar and his acolytes would openly bang little boys. Here’s an example of this garbage from back when I was a kid…

Thank God my kids are grown. I would be fuming just like this guy. I remember reading this kinda stuff in Penthouse! Yes it is pornographic and should not be required reading for anyone (including college)!
No good can come from sexually arousing 14 year old kids or anyone else in that male/female environment WTF are wrong with these people? People today can’t even stay together not to mention what happens when an unplanned child is introduced or worse an abortion. I’m not religious but I see this as being very evil, normalizing sex like everyone all ages is doing it. This sh!t makes one look forward to God’s judgment.
Also that cop had to have been called by the school or board before the meeting. This guy needs to get the whole community behind him and throw out the entire school board to be replaced with normal people.

To Lou and other people who like to use words such as “Communist indoctrination” to describe this kind of situation, let me give you a few definitions. “Communism” refers to an economic system in which the state owns virtually all the major means of production and administers virtually all the major services. Basically, it represents ownership of the means of production by the masses of people themselves, administered through the government. “Socialism” is a lesser form of communism and exists everywhere to varying degrees, wherever the government owns assets and runs services such as ports, electricity production etc. Communism, as we saw it in the Soviet Union, was “totalitarian” meaning the state exerted almost total power over the citizens. But there is another “ism” that is also totalitarian. That is Fascism, which has always been a mortal enemy of communism and socialism. As Mussolini himself said, “Fascism is the amalgamation of corporations and government”. In other words, when fascism is fully implemented, the state owns virtually no major assets or services – these are all privatized. So, you choose – what kind of indoctrination are we being subjected to today in our media and schools, communist indoctrination or fascist indoctrination (= the New World Order)?”

Pull your kids from the state schools when they do this. If a private person or teacher actually said this to a minor, they could be charged with corrupting the morals of a minor.

I feel ill when I read that “anal sex” is taught to school children. As a former nurse I encountered many injuries as a result of this perverted and disgusting practice and patients who had to wear diapers because the sphincter muscle never regained its elasticity. It is not only revolting – why would you want any part of your body coming into direct contact with feces? – but dangerous too. The result is incontinence and yet it is hailed as an alternative in Hollywood movies and social engineering and even girls are encouraged to try it. People should google the self-inflicted “gay bowel syndrome” before they allow it on the school syllabus.

This is disgusting. PEOPLE WAKE UP!!!!! We must take back our children. HOMESCHOOLING IS AN ANSWER. I am a grandmother that graduated our grandson in 2010; from beginning to end. We live in PA. one of the most restrictive states. I have a highschool diploma. The public library is very helpful,as well as there are LOTS of free or cheap curriculums. Home School Legal Defense Association offer lots of free information, as well as laws of each state. Computers make doing school at home easy. There are no snow days, clothes are casual, and there are support groups for field trips, PE games, and interaction. HSLDA phone # (540) 338-5600 , or go to their website.

I looked over all of the comments on this article and not one mentioned ‘Common Core’, which is what this is all about. Common Core curriculum is the most evil thing that has ever happened in education – anywhere – ever. Funded by Bill Gates (of Hell) at the tune of $150,000,000, Common Core is nothing but a dumb-down, brainwashing, propagandizing tool for kids to be subservient to the government. If you want to know what Common Core is, go here:… – I guarantee you will not like what you here – unless of course you are of the reptilian slime inclination
