The Sitka Public Library, like many across Alaska and around the nation, is firmly under the control of hard-leftist cultural and political activists.

The library contains gender-confusing books for children, hosts children’s story time readings that promote transgenderism and drag queen culture, and regularly celebrates Gay Pride Month.

While the library highlights the fact that it opposes banning books or limiting the flow of information, next week the Sitka Assembly will consider replacing an outgoing member of the library’s governing body with a woman who once backed an effort to pressure the Federal Communications Commission to ban the Rush Limbaugh Show from America’s airwaves.

A long-time resident of Sitka, Sandra Fontaine’s personal Facebook page includes posts in support of many controversial far-left political issues such as the Black Lives Matter movement, same-sex marriage and LGBTQ political goals. She also once enthusiastically supported an effort to remove the late Rush Limbaugh from the airwaves. In 2012, Fontaine published five anti-Limbaugh posts, including an article calling on the FCC to revoke the licenses of local radio stations that dared to air the most popular U.S. talk show in history.

“Yes, the FCC should clear Limbaugh from the airwaves!!!” Fontaine stated, adding in another post: “We need to work on getting this guy off the air.”

If approved by the Sitka Assembly at its March 22 meeting, Fontaine will serve a three-year term on the Library Commission board where she will help oversee the library’s building, staffing, budget, regulations and rules.

    It’s obvious that she needs to NOT be installed because she’s to prejudice to govern fairly for all. This is something that all politicians have forgotten. It’s time someone brings it to their attention again!

    Since when is gay marriage controversial? Is it 1999?

    • Steve P Peterson says:

      1999? Wish it was! Gay “marriage” is; A. not marriage, and B. an aberration.
      As for the conservative people of Sitka (there were many when I lived there), they should cease to pay city tax wherever they can. Tax revolts really scare lefties because they are all about big government and big government requires lots of tax money.

        Not marriage according to whom? I know Republicans are trying to turn this country into a Christian theocracy but that goes against the very tenets this country was founded on. Separation of church and state. Also, who cares who’s marrying who? How does that affect your life in any way? Get over yourself.

    • Gouge says:

      No kidding. It’s crazy hownregressive Republicans are.

    Wait you mean we need to Stop You, from getting on the Library Commission board.
    People take your kids out of these woke schools before it’s to late.

  • Johnny says:

    Anyone who puts these books in the children’s library should not be near children much less near a school.

    The woman wouldn’t be where she is professionally today if she wasn’t encouraged by
    a christian conservative whether or not she knew her earliest supporter was one: be a teacher, a sunday school teacher, a church elder, an early employer, or even an admired aqaintance for how they loved others, or her hetersexual parents who out of love concieved her- a very conservative act to do- plus all the other self sufficent lessons they given her so she isn’t dependent-more conservative acts,
    What do liberals do for others? Nothing! They just live for themselves using all services offered to them. Their whole value system doesn’t add to
    building up neighbors and nation. Everything a liberal has was freely given came about through their interaction with a christian conservative, their benefactor saw them as christ see them as valuable. Its really too bad the liberal can’t see beyond the joy recieving the service.

      I was molested by a leader in my church when I was a kid. He was married and had kids that I knew but he still took advantage of me and then acted righteous and holier-than-thou at church. Once my dress got dirty after I pulled away from his hands and I fell in the mud and when my mother yelled at me about it, he didn’t even say anything to defend me. My mother always punished me because I didn’t want to go to church but it was because of the people there that were supposed to be leaders and top evangelicals that everyone respected but they did bad things with kids and I couldn’t deal with the hypocrisy.

  • Gouge says:

    Asking for black people to stop getting murdered by police in wildly disproportionate numbers is a controversial far left ideology? Also, same sex marriage is a threat to you or anyone else how, exactly? Why would you care? It has nothing to do with you.

    This is all scared snowflake talk.
