Leave Governor Palin’s Children Alone! (UPDATED with Gov. Palin’s Facebook Note)

Posted by Adrienne Ross on February 16, 2010

By Adrienne Ross –

I do not watch “Family Guy” for one simple reason: I’m not a fan of puking my guts out, and no doubt the show would create that kind of reaction from me. I’ve seen enough previews to know that it is the kind of thing I simply would not find humorous. I’ve seen their mocking of Jesus, for example, and frankly, I don’t give place to that in my home.

Therefore, had it not been the talk of the day, I would not have known about last night’s episode that alludes to Governor Palin and her son, Trig.

In the episode, a feisty girl with Down Syndrome has a date with a teenage boy. Forgive me for not knowing these characters’ names. Like I said, I prefer not puking.

The special needs character identifies her mother as “the former governor of Alaska.” Without the use of names, it is an obvious reference to the Palins, as Trig has Down Syndrome and Palin is the former Alaska governor.

There has been a lot written and much discussed today about this episode. Even leftists see this as below the belt. You can see the clip and decide for yourself by clicking here. Personally, I cannot figure out why the Palin reference was necessary. I cannot figure out how it adds to the storyline. It certainly doesn’t contribute to any humor that might be found somewhere in this show. All I have to say is this: Barack Obama told the media early in his candidacy to leave his children alone. He was right to make such a request/demand–and everyone obliged. Children of public figures should be off limits. Governor Palin’s children deserve the same respect President Obama’s children have been given, which is the same respect every child deserves.

So in the name of decency, “Family Guy” (and everyone else who has declared a never-ending hunting season on her children): “Leave Governor Palin’s children alone!

UPDATED with Governor Palin’s Facebook note:

Fox Hollywood – What a Disappointment

People are asking me to comment on yesterday’s Fox show that felt like another kick in the gut. Bristol was one who asked what I thought of the show that mocked her baby brother, Trig (and/or others with special needs), in an episode yesterday. Instead of answering, I asked her what she thought. Here is her conscientious reply, which is a much more restrained and gracious statement than I want to make about an issue that begs the question, “when is enough, enough?”:

“When you’re the son or daughter of a public figure, you have to develop thick skin. My siblings and I all have that, but insults directed at our youngest brother hurt too much for us to remain silent. People with special needs face challenges that many of us will never confront, and yet they are some of the kindest and most loving people you’ll ever meet. Their lives are difficult enough as it is, so why would anyone want to make their lives more difficult by mocking them? As a culture, shouldn’t we be more compassionate to innocent people – especially those who are less fortunate? Shouldn’t we be willing to say that some things just are not funny? Are there any limits to what some people will do or say in regards to my little brother or others in the special needs community? If the writers of a particularly pathetic cartoon show thought they were being clever in mocking my brother and my family yesterday, they failed. All they proved is that they’re heartless jerks. – Bristol Palin”

    Upon reflection over the many events during the past two years (from the 2008 campaign forward), I have come to the sad realization that Obama’s request/demand that his children be “off-limits” to the media was ONLY honored NOT because it was the right thing to do and he & Michelle were within their rights to make such a request/demand, but because they were “Liberals” & Democrats & the lamestream media was going to give them a total pass – PERIOD. No hard questions, no delving into the locked-up records, no examination of Obama’s unusual “personal history” and his less-than-savory friends – AND hands off the kids – no problem!

    But for Sarah Palin and HER family – for whom that same lamestream media is psychologically and pathelogically obsessed – NOTHING is sacred – INCLUDING the children. And an even “juicier” target has been the youngest and least able to speak up for and defend himself. Through God’s blessing, however, he is blissfully ignorant of all the ridicule and hatred aimed at his innocent self.

    Here is what the lamestream media have become – and, ironically, it’s the very same bete noir that [redacted] bemoan & berate in other circumstances: Namely, the MSM and the entire Left Wing population of this country, who dump so cruelly on Palin & her family (including single-mom Bristol & her own darling son), are the grown-up & exceedingly evil version of the school yard BULLY!! They have raised bullying to almost an art form – [redacted]. THEY are, indeed, weapons of Satan [redacted].

    God help them – and God protect Sarah and her family. Her mettle is being tested every day – and a stronger person than Palin will never emerge on the political stage in the near future.
