We reported earlier about Sarah Palin's pro-censorship position regarding books in her local library of Wasilla Alaska, while she was mayor. ABC reported that Palin wanted specific books banned but those reports have likely been unsubstantiated, fact remains she did inquire about the process of removing books, three times!
Now according to the New York Times some colleagues of Mrs. Palin have said she wanted to remove a children's book called "Daddy's Roommate" for gay families that helps kids understand different family structures.
"But in 1995, Ms. Palin, then a city councilwoman, told colleagues that she had noticed the book “Daddy’s Roommate” on the shelves and that it did not belong there, according to Ms. Chase and Mr. Stein. Ms. Chase read the book, which helps children understand homosexuality, and said it was inoffensive; she suggested that Ms. Palin read it.Sarah Palin is a grave threat to our civil liberties as Americans and in particular a danger to the LGBT community. There is no doubt in my mind that QU made the right decision in endorsing the Obama/Biden ticket.
“Sarah said she didn’t need to read that stuff,” Ms. Chase said. “It was disturbing that someone would be willing to remove a book from the library and she didn’t even read it.”
“I’m still proud of Sarah,” she added, “but she scares the bejeebers out of me.”
