Faux "progressives" at it again

We've already seen how "progressives" "value" free speech; here's yet another example:

Via Big Government:

The authors of the books we offered to ban were Glenn Beck, Sarah Palin, Ann Coulter, Andrew Breitbart, Ayn Rand, Michael Savage, Bill Clinton, Michael Moore, Karl Marx, Adolf Hitler and Barack Obama. While there were in fact less than two handfuls of individuals who did tell us they donít think any books should be banned, unfortunately there were a shocking amount of guests at this book fair who were quite open to the idea, and in fact lined up quite excited for the opportunity to voice their opinion.

Participants overwhelming chose Sarah Palin who received 53 votes putting her at 36% overall, Glenn Beck at 23% and Ann Coulter at 22%.

All of the other choices received a very minimal amount of votes, with the next most popular to ban being Adolf Hitler at 0.5%. Ironically, Michael Savage, who has been banned from entering Britain over things he often says, did not receive one vote to have his words banned in Chicago.

How 'bout that -- Uncle Adolf coming in behind Palin, Beck and Coulter.

What can one say to such lunacy?

A Nation at Risk thanks to the liberal educrats/nea efforts to keep the nation from becoming dumbed down has become a dumbed down nation at risk.

Oh, good grief, don't you know anything? Clearly, Andrew Breitbart organized this somehow, and edited the results to make it look like liberals were the ones who wanted to ban books.

However, when you refer to "Uncle Adolph," rather than Uncle Adolf, you are referring to Adolph Rupp, as any Kentuckian knows, and you need to change that!

Changed! Thanks, Dana! :-)
