Bristol Palin Attacked by the Left for Exercising Her First Amendment Rights

Posted by Sarah Palin Web Brigade on May 14, 2012

There was a fast and furious response by the Left to Bristol Palin’s blog post  in which she expressed her disagreement with President Obama’s stance on gay marriage and emphasized the double standard applied to the manner in which he claimed to have arrived at his decision.

Blog posts critical of Bristol’s statements  flooded the Internet.  Bristol was attacked on Twitter and in the comments  section on her blog.   Death threats  were posted in comments on her blog and on Twitter.  Michael Sheppard and Jackie Siciliano exposed one such perpetrator of hate, a college student who supports Obama, here and here.  John Nolte wrote here about violence against Bristol being promoted on the Facebook page of  Magnet Releasing, a film company owned by Obama supporter Mark Cuban.  Tony Lee wrote here about the Hollywood intolerance reflected in Bristol’s hate mail.

This was an obvious effort to overwhelm and silence a dissenting viewpoint from that of the Left and their Dear Leader.   It appears that only the Left has First Amendment rights in this country.  At least, that is what they would have us believe.  However, the last time I looked, the Constitution and the Bill of Rights were still the Law of the Land.  And may they ever remain so.

We at SPIB would like to give Bristol a shout out for the courage and strength she has displayed in the face of these attacks.  We stand in solidarity with her in support of the moral principles that made our country great.

Here are excerpts from Bristol’s  original post:

Hail to the Chiefs – Malia and Sasha Obama

May 10, 2012 By Bristol Palin

Is anyone really surprised by the fact that President Obama came out of the closet for gay marriage? What was most surprising is when he explained how his position (supposedly) “evolved,” by talking to his wife and daughters: 

It’s interesting, some of this is also generational,” the president continued. “You know when I go to college campuses, sometimes I talk to college Republicans who think that I have terrible policies on the economy, on foreign policy, but are very clear that when it comes to same-sex equality or, you know, sexual orientation, that they believe in equality. They are much more comfortable with it. You know, Malia and Sasha, they have friends whose parents are same-sex couples. There have been times where Michelle and I have been sitting around the dinner table and we’re talking about their friends and their parents and Malia and Sasha, it wouldn’t dawn on them that somehow their friends’ parents would be treated differently. It doesn’t make sense to them and, frankly, that’s the kind of thing that prompts a change in perspective.”

Let’s pause for just one second.  When Christian women run for high office, people inevitably bring up the question of submission.  Once, Michele Bachmann, for example, was asked during a debate, “As president, would you be submissive to your husband?”

People automatically assume that a Christian female President isn’t capable of making decisions without her spouse’s stamp of approval.  (I should add female Republicancandidates –liberal women don’t get the same kind of questions.)

[…]

So let me get this straight – it’s a problem if my mom listened too much to my dad, but it’s a heroic act if the President made a massive change in a policy position that could affect the entire nation after consulting with his teenage daughters?

While it’s great to listen to your kids’ ideas, there’s also a time when dads simply need to be dads.  In this case, it would’ve been helpful for him to explain to Malia and Sasha that while her friends parents are no doubt lovely people, that’s not a reason to change thousands of years of thinking about marriage.  Or that – as great as her friends may be – we know that in general kids do better growing up in a mother/father home.  Ideally, fathers help shape their kids’ worldview.

[…]

Sometimes dads should lead their family in the right ways of thinking.  In this case, it would’ve been nice if the President would’ve been an actual leader and helped shape their thoughts instead of merely reflecting what many teenagers think after one too many episodes of Glee.

Here is an excerpt from her post responding to the hater attacks:

Hate in the Name of Love, Bullying in the Name of Tolerance

May 14, 2012 By Bristol Palin

Well, I stirred up a hornet’s nest.  You know you’ve struck a nerve when even J-Woww tweets insults at you.  But the thing that most amazes me is how few people actually addressed the points I made in my recent blog post.  They were pretty simple.  Conservative women like my mom get grief because people think they can’t make decisions without their husband, but Barack Obama gets applauded for changing his mind on a huge issue after consulting his wife and young daughters. The double standard amazes me.

Oh, and in that post I also said generally kids do better with mother/father families – the kind of family I’d like to have for Tripp one day.

That’s it.  That’s pretty much the post.  (Yes, I made a little joke about Swiper the Fox, but anyone with a brain would know that wasn’t serious.)  You see arguments like that all the time in political magazines.  It’s not a big deal, and the people who make arguments like that don’t stir up much controversy.

But I’m not a pundit.  I’m just a mom made famous in one of the most intense and embarrassing ways possible – by having your teen pregnancy announced in the middle of a presidential campaign.  Oh, and I was a finalist on Dancing with the Stars, one of the most-watched shows on TV.  But all that means I’m more a part of pop culture, the culture that creates the television we watch and the music we listen to.  When real pundits write blog posts, they don’t pop up in Us Weekly… but mine do.

And I’m glad.  Why?  Because pop culture needs a little bit of debate.  It needs a little bit of disagreement.  Because not everyone who watches their shows or listens to their music thinks the way the directors, producers, and actors think.  When you’re in Hollywood you’ll meet some great people, some terrible people, and many somewhere in between.  In other words, they’re people just like everyone else.  But what you won’t find is any disagreement about things like gay marriage or abortion.  For those folks, there’s one way to think, and anyone who disagrees is stupid, hypocritical, hateful, or bigoted.  (Of course, I’m not the only one facing the wrath of the Hollywood-type sheeple – there are some celebrities bold enough to speak out, and they get attacked and ostracized too.)

If you read the almost 3,000 comments after my controversial post, or read the entertainment magazines, you’ll see some of the most terrible words against me, my mom, and my entire family.

  1.

    Has anyone realized that a strong conservative woman does not have a voice in this country when it comes to the some Democrats and especially the extreme left. I thought when we elected a President that he or she became the President for the entire United States of America. They do not become a rock star for Europe and individuals in this country illegally. The President is suppose to represent this country, but so is Congress. I know we elect 2 Senators from each state and they should also represent their respective states, but one of my Senators is a joke and only seems to represent Democrats. The other is up for re-election so it is hard to tell, but she is better. Than there are our representative and mine is a real joke. Somehow my more conservative community is grouped with a more liberal Minneapolis and we get a very far left representative. I have been on conferences calls with him, but I am never picked to give my question or comment, and the ones that are picked would never challenge our representative.

    Sometimes I feel it is becoming too late for this country and I don’t think we will recognize it if President Obama is elected to a second term.

    But we must be careful. We can’t sacrifice our beliefs, but if we go too far right are we any better than the far left?

    I have fought since I first started working in 1957 to be recognized especially with men and now women are attacking women. When a became a VP at a bank and then the manager, I was never really acknowledged by women for my strengths and opinions. I hope that isn’t happening on a National level. We need another Margaret Thatcher and an Angela Merkel. Maybe we would get something done for this country and we could be proud and strong again.

    I noticed that the hateful comments in response to Bristol’s post included criticism of her spelling, punctuation and grammar. She is in good company. If you check out verified samples of President Obama’s writings, you find that he struggles with the basics of English composition.

    Not all of us can be as casually literate as Bristol’s mom. Not only did the Palin emails fail to expose a scandal, they revealed a woman who can do a far better job of writing while casually tapping out tweets on her blackberry with her thumbs than Obama could when writing for the Harvard Law review.

    As for the criticism of Bristol’s alleged hypocrisy, Let he who is without sin cast the first stone. People are people, even the Palins. If Levi Johnston hadn’t been encouraged by the Democratic Part to dump her to dump on her mom, Bristol would be no different than all of the other, eager young brides who have always been renown for their abbreviated gestation periods.

    Now that President Obama has came out of the closet about Gay Marriage, will he come out of the closet about Frank Marshal Davis, the avowed communist, published pornographer and notorious pedophile with an affinity for teenaged boys who the young Obama used to hang out with to drink booze and do drugs while he was a student at the Punahoe school?

  5. Bristol, just know that for all the Haters out there, there are many more people, like myself and my family, who support you and your family, all of your values and convictions.
