Palin Favors Banning Books
I ran across a reference to this, and I can’t believe it’s not getting more press. According to a recent article in TIME magazine, GOP VP candidate and all around ignorant hayseed Sarah Palin not only favors the banning of controversial books from libraries, but actually attempted on one occasion to fire a librarian in Alaska who had the temerity to stand up to this Nazi cow and defend the 1st Amendment.
Stein says that as mayor, Palin continued to inject religious beliefs into her policy at times. “She asked the library how she could go about banning books,” he says, because some voters thought they had inappropriate language in them. “The librarian was aghast.” That woman, Mary Ellen Baker, couldn’t be reached for comment, but news reports from the time show that Palin had threatened to fire Baker for not giving “full support” to the mayor.
No matter if you believe in fiscal conservatism, libertarianism, or are like me a godless ivory-tower liberal, I would kindly suggest that you might want to think twice before electing someone as Vice-President of the United States of America who actively favors banning books that don’t conform with her own personal religious views. Someone who is willing – eager – to abuse her public office to enforce her totalitarian and Dominionist agenda. Someone who would become President if John McCain is elected, has a fifth cancer, and dies. Are you frightened yet?
