GOP Establishment Could Learn From ‘Stars Earn Stripes’ Participants

Posted by Adrienne Ross on August 14, 2012

By Adrienne Ross – http://www.motivationtruth.com

Despite all the false narratives about the Palins permeating the minds of people, due in large part to the media’s agenda, the one-on-one encounters with Todd and Governor Palin always leave a lasting impression, and it’s not the impression the lamestream media and the political left want people to receive.

Steve Flesher detailed here, as I did here, the response Todd Palin’s Stars Earn Stripes co-star, Andrew McLaren, had upon spending time with Todd and the Governor. Though some of his friends are “shocked” that he has become good friends with the Palins, he stated that his view of them changed from the “vastly distorted” media image, and he went so far as to say, “Todd and Sarah Palin are the nicest people I have ever met.” That’s quite a compliment from someone who admits to disagreeing with them on some important issues. It also demonstrates a maturity that too many do not possess today, as they choose to cling to their bitter view–a false one–of the Palins.

Add The Biggest Loser trainer, Dolvett Quince, to the list of those who have now come face to face with the Palins and speak highly of them.

According to Access Atlanta:

Palin, he said, became a good friend. “He invited me to his home in Alaska,” said Quince, who came to the national scene last year when he joined “The Biggest Loser” as a coach. During the “Stars Earn Stripes” shoot, he got to meet Sarah. “Politics aside,” he said, “she’s a great person.”

The key seems to be an ability to set politics aside and get to see people for who they are, even when you do not agree on everything.

It seems that this reality show is much more reality than show, as it not only serves as a means to support our military and first responders, but brings together people whose separate paths may have never crossed otherwise. This endeavor to bring awareness to our nation’s finest, raise money for a great cause, and push one’s physical and mental capacities to the absolute limit has also served to stretch people beyond their usual ability to see what others try to block them from seeing. It has allowed people to view the Palins, in particular, without the faulty lens of the media’s even faultier microscope. So much for the memes that the Palins cannot interact with people who do not share their political persuasions, do not share their racial backgrounds, or do not share their particular ideologies. What remains, unfortunately, is the intolerance with which the Palins are too often treated by others, the constant attacks on their character, and the denial that they have always respected others’ rights to have their own perspectives, even when they differ from their own.

I respect that Andrew McLaren and Dolvett Quince have allowed themselves to see the Palins for who they are and have acknowledged what they have discovered. Now if only the GOP Establishment would follow in the footsteps of these Stars Earn Stripes participants, set aside their own fears which hinder them from celebrating the gifts that Governor Palin brings to the table, and utilize those gifts for the benefit of the country, we could praise their maturity as well.

Sarah Palin tells PARADE: “Todd’s a hardcore, kick-butt athlete”

Sarah Palin 'Wholeheartedly' Supported Husband Todd's Role on 'Stars Earn Stripes'

From an article by Erin Hill at PARADE.com:

Todd Palin talked to PARADE about his involvement in the new series, and former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin opened up about supporting her husband as he steps into the spotlight. Stars Earn Stripes premieres tonight on NBC at 8 p.m. ET.

What was the most difficult thing about filming Stars Earn Stripes?

“Just some of the missions that we were going through and the level of danger and the mental, emotion, and physical strain. I knew that we were going to do some pretty gnarly stuff, but I didn’t expect jumping out of helicopters!”

Many of the celebrity contestants say it was a life-changing experience. Do you agree?

“There’s no question. When you have a teammate in the mission and you put your life in his or her hands, it’s life changing. We all learned from each other. ”

How did your family react to you joining the series?

“I put it in front of the family before I made the decision to participate. They were definitely supportive.”

Sarah, what was it like cheering Todd on from the sidelines?

“I support him in his commercial fishing, snowmobile racing, flying, raising five kids, and everything else that he does! I supported him wholeheartedly. This was something very worthy and very fun to support. It was such an awesome experience for Todd.

There are some serious athletes competing on this series. Were you concerned about how Todd would do in some of the more challenging missions?

“No because Todd’s a hardcore, kick-butt athlete — that’s what a commercial fisherman is! All of the things he does in real life as a racer and a pilot came together very well for him as a competitor. I’m looking forward to watching it as a family.”
