Surprise! Leftists are Drowning in Hypocrisy

It must be tough to be a left-wing nutjob these days. The excitement of Sarah Palin has the Obamatons absolutely wrecked with fear, and so they resort to spreading vicious rumors and lies. One of the lies that has the Socialists Against Sarah most worked-up is that she tried to censor library books. shoots down that lie in Sliming Palin:

She did not demand that books be banned from the Wasilla library. Some of the books on a widely circulated list were not even in print at the time. The librarian has said Palin asked a “What if?” question, but the librarian continued in her job through most of Palin’s first term.

Michelle Malkin’s syndicated article today, The book-banners Hollywood ignores documents the numerous case of real censorship by leftists. They are hypocrites of the worst kind. Michelle nails it when she points out that this is a case of “Classic projection”.

They are getting desperate, and it’s so fun to watch them squirm.

And now we know what keeps feminist playwrights like Eve Ensler (“The Vagina Monologues”) awake at night. Not Iranian nuclear ambitions or al Qaeda beheading videos. She is haunted by nightmares of Bible-thumping, book-burning Sarah Palin. A McCain/Palin ticket “is one of the most dangerous choices” of her lifetime, Ensler seethed in her viral call-to-arms e-mail, because “Sarah Palin does not much believe in thinking,” The evidence: “From what I gather she has tried to ban books from the library, has a tendency to dispense with people who think independently. She cannot tolerate an environment of ambiguity and difference.”

Classic projection. Damon, Ensler and the anti-censorship crusaders are the unthinking ones who can’t tolerate independence, ambiguity and difference. The rumormongers continue to spread a bogus banned book list attributed to Palin that includes books not even published at the time she served as mayor. No city records corroborate Internet reports that she tried to keep anti-homosexual books, as gay lobbying organizations have claimed, or any other books off government-funded library shelves available to children. …

If book banning is such a life-and-death issue to these celebrity foot soldiers for free speech, where were they four years ago when John Kerry and his rabid minions were pressuring Regnery Publishing to withdraw “Unfit for Command” from bookstores? Where were they when members of the Borders Books Employee Union were openly advocating sabotaging book sales? A message on the union’s members-only website urged:

“You guys don’t actually HAVE to sell the thing!

“Just ‘carelessly’ hide the boxes, ‘accidentally’ drop them off pallets, ‘forget’ to stock the ones you have, and then suggest a nice Al Franken or Michael Moore book as a substitute …

“I don’t care if these Neandertals (sic) in fancy suits get mad at me, they aren’t regular customers anyway. Other than ‘Left Behind’ books, they don’t read. Anything you can do to make them feel unwelcome is only fair. They are the people pushing retailers to cut costs, don’t forget. And they would censor your speech, your books, your music in a heartbeat, so give them a taste of it!”

Read on for many more examples of real liberal censorship as opposed to make believe Sarah Palin censorship.
