Sarah Palin’s Going Rogue #3 In Heterophobic San Francisco Despite Ban

1 Stones Into Schools, by Greg Mortenson (Viking; 420 pages; $26.95)

2 The Big Burn: Teddy Roosevelt & The Fire That Saved America, by Timothy Egan 
(Houghton Mifflin Harcourt; 336 pages; $27)

3 Going Rogue: An American Life, by Sarah Palin (Harper; 432 pages; $28.99) 

4 What The Dog Saw, by Malcolm Gladwell (Little Brown; 410 pages; $27.99)

Quite ironic because the bankrupt (morally & financially) San Francisco Chronicle ran this story back in November.  The open-minded, tolerant liberals in San Francisco who own the smaller (non-chain) bookstores all decided to ban "Going Rogue" from their inventory. When asked why they were refusing to sell Sarah's book, here are some of the explanations these small-brained little twits gave for their book banning:

It might as well have cooties. Hardly anyone wants to touch the thing, or even get close to it. The new autobiography by moose hunter and failed vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin is harder to find in the Bay Area than a hockey mom. Some bookstores figure it's one of those grit-your-teeth First Amendment deals that principled booksellers must put up with from time to time. But many non-chain bookstores won't handle it.

"Our customers are thinking people," said Nathan Embretson, a bookseller at Pendragon Books in Oakland. "They're not into reading drivel."

There are no copies of the book at Cover to Cover Booksellers in Noe Valley, either. "Anything like that we wouldn't carry," said clerk Emily Stackhouse. "We're a small store and it would probably gross us all out. Some things you carry because of freedom of speech, but a book like that is just gross."

"Nobody around here is particularly interested in her politics or her opinions...There's a certain curiosity, sure. But I don't think that translates into what people are willing to pay money for."Had she ordered 50 copies of the book, Cotleur said, she would probably wind up shipping 50 copies of the book back to the publisher in a couple of weeks. "I would expect to take a bath on it," she said. "The job of a book buyer is to be something of a psychic. You have to know your community. I don't want to waste a lot of money and shelf space on a book nobody wants.'

Borders Clerk Darron Smith,"I would never read it myself," he said. "I also would never push it on anyone. But it's here, if somebody wants to ask for it. So far, I haven't had anyone ask."


Hah! Today it was announced that "Going Rogue" is 3rd in sales in the San Francisco Bay area and climbing fast.  I guarantee it would be number one if their was no book banning.  Looks like these sanctimonious buffoons lost out on some profit by sending customers to the local chain stores that did carry the book.

  1. One of the first indications of a slave state is losing the right to exercise a freedom of being able to select and read any document or ledger or book available in the free world or nation.

    Printed material "unavailable" in a market setting reminds me of coercion of knowledge and opinion.

    Clearly the Franciscans have been brainwashed - imagine all those bright creative people being led around by some who fear anything which might
    offer some new thought to reflect upon.

  2. As always, the left shows its fascist nature.

  3. There is nothing so powerful that liberals will not find some way to deny it. Truth is to a liberal what sunlight is to a vampire

  4. They are inflicted with militant ignorance, and proud of it! They should be in quarantine lest the infection spreads!

  5. I can respect the store owners fears of offending thier regular client base, but I sure would like to see Amazon's "local" volume on her book. I'm sure most will be buying it purely to find more information to bash her with, not to see why the rest of America is intrigued.
