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