Sarah Palin Hates Freedom

September 13, 2008

I’ve been hearing lots of rumors lately about an incident in ’96 when Palin allegedly tried to ban select books from the Wasilla, Alaska library and have the librarian fired.

Palin twice asked about removing books from the library, but in an ABC article, she says it was a rhetorical question. 

Right. 

As a USA Today article says, a list of titles Palin supposedly tried to ban is being passed around via the internet and email. The list really contains the most frequently banned books, or something similar, and is obviously false as some of the books on the list weren’t even published back when all this was happening. It’s unfortunate that people are spreading this list without checking their facts or putting any critical thought behind it, stealing credibility from an issue that needs to be discussed and taken seriously.
