Banned in Wasilla: Palin Bans Liberal Bloggers From Going Rogue Signing

December 23, 2009

(ChattahBox)—-The former half-term governor of Alaska Sarah Palin, who quit her office to scribble a few tales on Post-it notes for her ghostwritten memoirs, “Going Rogue,” and to spout nonsense full-time on Facebook and Twitter, took her book tour to her hometown this week. According to coverage of the event, as reported by the Anchorage Daily News, “Sarah Palin was treated like a homecoming queen,” and the only noticeable signs were not of protest, but of “conservative causes or Christmas.”

And Palin wanted to make sure the conservative atmosphere, was not sullied with the likes of dirty hippy liberal bloggers, so she placed four Alaskan bloggers on a banned list and had at least two of them escorted out of the site by local police.

Three of the four bloggers on the list are known: Dennis Zaki, an Anchorage photographer and videographer, the Immoral Minority’s Gryphen and Shannyn Moore, Huffington Post blogger and local radio host.

Both Gryphen and Zaki were escorted out of the event when they signed in at the media desk. They were told that it was a private event, since it was paid for by Palin’s publisher, giving them the right to ban anyone they wanted.

According to Gryphen’s account:

“My first hint that something may be wrong down in Who-ville was when I was asked for my ID, not once, but twice. Then as Dennis and I were about to sign in, and the lady behind the desk took our picture with a little digital camera! … Almost as soon as I had my picture taken I felt a hand on my shoulder. I turned around and came face to face with a local police officer who quickly apologized and then informed me that I was on the “banned list.” I am on the WHAT list? I asked. The banned list sir, I am going to have to escort you off of the property. This is a private event.”

The blogger Gryphen was later told that four names appeared on Palin’s Wasilla enemies list.

Wasilla Recreation and Cultural Services Manager James Hastings defended the banning of liberal local media as a safety issue, because the nearly 1,000 conservative Palin supporters might have gone berserk if the bloggers were allowed to attend.

“At the end of the day, if something had gone wrong, it would have been my responsibility,” Hastings said. “If I take three minutes on Google I can see that, given the nature of the people who were here, it wasn’t in his (Zaki’s) best interest to be here. He and others could have found themselves in a negative situation,” said Hastings.

The Anchorage Daily News reported that about 1,000 showed up for Palin’s Going Rogue book signing at the Curtis D. Menard Memorial Sports Center in Wasilla. Well, at least the sports center is being put to use. While Palin was mayor of Wasilla, the sports center was her pet project and it turned into a boondoggle that subjected the small town to years of costly litigation, leaving Wasilla with about $1.3 million in debt.

    This incident will be forgotten about in a week. I know who these bloggers are. Jesse Griffin, aka knows as Gryphen, should work for the National Enquirer. He posts photos of Sarah Palin only to mock her appearance, invents a fable about he she is getting divorced, spreads rumors about a hideous lie that Trig is not her son, and then to top it all off, claims she is neglectful mother and wife. Shannyn Moore willingly associates with this man and peddles her own false allegations, one of those claiming a big scandal was going to take down Palin forcing the Governor to resign.

    As for Dennis Zaki, him and Jesse Griffin are like two peas in a pod. They both collaborate on their conspiracy theories.

    I know who these people are, and their self-righteous proclamations fall on deaf ears. Besides, I know both heavily censor all comments on their own blogs. They’re hypocrites of the highest order.
