The heat is on…

Missouri GOP candidate Valentina Gomez went viral this week for a video posted to X in which she takes a flamethrower to books she says are “grooming, indoctrinating, and sexualizing our children.”

The video, which has over 1 million views, featured the 24-year-old GOP candidate holding the weapon in a backyard.

“When I’m Secretary of State, I will BURN all books that are grooming, indoctrinating, and sexualizing our children. MAGA. America First,” her X post read.

“This is what I will do to grooming books when I become secretary of state,” Gomez said while taking a flamethrower to a stack of books.

“These books come from a Missouri Public Library. When I am in office, they will burn,” she added.

The books featured in the video included “Naked: Not Your Average Sex Encyclopedia” written by Myriam Daguzan Bernier and “Queer, 2nd Edition: The Ultimate LGBTQ Guide for Teens” by Kathy Belge and Marke Bieschke.
