The Tebow-Palin Connection

Posted by Adrienne Ross on November 28, 2011

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

An insightful, inspiring article about the similarities between NFL wonder, Tim Tebow, and tea party wonder woman, Governor Sarah Palin, can be found at American Thinker:

Tim Tebow is really annoying to certain people in a Sarah Palin sort of way. Whenever Tim or Sarah shows up, an uncomfortable feeling accompanies him or her, and it’s called conviction. One definition for “convict” is “to impress with a sense of guilt.” That is precisely what Tim Tebow and Sarah Palin are guilty of: impressing shame and remorse upon America that it would prefer to avoid.

The Palin family has been mocked and derided for many reasons, including baby boy Trig, born with Down Syndrome. This past spring, after former Gov. Palin posted a birthday tribute to her son, former Wonkette writer Jack Stuef called Trig a “magic intellectually disabled baby prop.” Stuef questioned “Trig’s parentage, implying he was conceived in incest, and used the R word.” Stuef has since apologized and said he regretted using the word “retarded,” but he stands by his criticism of Palin.

By approving of and promoting policies that destroy innocent human life, the left is hateful enough. However, when a conservative public figure “chooses” life, what emanates from hate-spewing liberals amounts to a new level of vitriol.

That rage is evidenced by liberal reactions to Sarah Palin, who celebrates the life of a child whom some liberals would deem a disposable burden on society. Palin said it so well in a 2011 Thanksgiving tribute to Trig when she shared:

Through Trig, I see firsthand that there is man’s standard of perfection, and then there is God’s. Man’s standard is flawed, temporary, and shallow. God’s standard lasts an eternity. At the end of the day, His is what matters.

And what about that pesky Tim Tebow? In 1987, Tim’s mother Pam chose to grant her son the gift of life. Pregnant and suffering from a life-threatening infection, Pam Tebow, a missionary with her husband Robert to the Philippines, was told that her and Robert’s child would be stillborn. Rather than take the advice of her doctor and abort, Pam Tebow chose to trust God.

Both mother and baby survived, and today, much like Sarah and Trig Palin, Pam and Tim Tebow both pose a problematic contradiction to one of the strongest arguments abortion advocates use when arguing to justify disposing of the unborn.

To this day, 24 years after proving the doctor wrong, starting quarterback for the Denver Broncos Tim Tebow remains downright annoying. Every time he makes an appearance on the football field, without opening his mouth, the abortion survivor takes all the fun out of the sport. Why? Because pro-choice America is forced to look into the face of a strapping miracle child whose mother put his life ahead of her own.

To make matters worse, not only did the Tebow family allow the child to be born, but they then did the unthinkable and raised him to be a devout Christian.

[…]

Not only does abortion survivor Tim Tebow live, but as a staunch follower of Jesus Christ, he is a source of double-conviction in a godless world where devotion to sports often supersedes commitment to God.

Based on the left’s reaction, seems Trig Palin and Tim Tebow are huge thorns in the side of pro-choice America. So are their mothers, who, if they’d only exercised the right to choose, would have made life a lot more comfortable for those who would rather avoid dredging up past mistakes.

Read the full article here, which includes comments by two people voicing their utter disdain for Tim Tebow’s unabashed faith. It seems they would rather he hide it in a corner. I can’t help but wonder why it bothers them so much. Perhaps this article hits the nail right on the head.

The Price of Taking on Trig Palin

Posted by Adrienne Ross on April 22, 2011

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

Sometimes it’s best to just sit tight and watch people self-destruct. I got to do just that this week.

Wonkette, the disgusting, vile, pro-abortion, Palin-hating rag of a website, decided to show how “courageous” it is by going after Trig Palin on Monday, his third birthday. This innocent young man, born with Down Syndrome, has done nothing to deserve this treatment. Of course, many on the far-left deem him the enemy simply because he’s alive, because his mother didn’t abort him, and mostly because they are plain evil. They went too far this time, and they’re paying the price.

Wonkette writer, Jack Stuef, put up a doctored picture of Trig, and in an article called “Greatest Living American: A Children’s Treasury of Trig Crap On His Birthday,” wrote:

What’s he dreaming about? Nothing. He’s retarded.

[…]

His mom went to a lot of trouble to leak amniotic fluid over 8 states to make sure that he arrived in this world somewhat alive,”

[…]

Enjoy yourself today, Trig. Have fun! Get drunk (on purpose this time)! We can hardly wait for 15 years from now, when you will finally be able to vote and will be sent off by your mother’s junta to fight the Union in the Great Alaska War. It’ll be quite a loss. You’re the smartest one in that family.

You won’t find that full post anymore because after the Internet community lit Wonkette’s butt on fire, they had to walk back their “satire.” They then issued some poor excuse of an apology and pulled the post. Prior to that, however, Governor Palin thanked those on Twitter who spoke up in defense of her little man. She tweeted her appreciation:

Big thanks from the Palin family to folks on Twitter today who took a stand for children w/special needs. Happy Easter!Thank you #TrigsCrew

I have great respect for how Governor Palin handled this. We all know that, like all mothers, she doesn’t want people messing with her kids. Her mama grizzly instincts rise up. She would have been perfectly within her rights to lash out at Wonkette, but she was able to allow others to fight for her. All that was left for her to do was to offer her thanks to the army of people who not only have her back, but Trig’s as well. Believe it or not, even intense leftists took a stand and denounced Wonkette’s reprehensible behavior.

Palin-Derangement Syndrome is a serious illess, we know. But this is just over the top. Going after those who cannot defend themselves, who have done nothing wrong, and who only offer love and joy to those they come in contact with will not be tolerated. These people will pay a price.

I am glad that Mama Grizzly didn’t have to rise up on her hind legs to defend her cub this time. Others did, much to the chagrin of Wonkette. Companies have pulled their ads from them, a long overdue exodus. M. Joseph Sheppard highlights the first sponsor to throw Wonkette under the bus, where it belongs:

Many have joined Papa John’s. According to Josh Painter, at least 27 have now chosen to do the right thing. For an incomplete list of those companies who have pulled their support, go here.

Hopefully, the message has been sent loud and clear. Family members of public figures are off-limits. President Obama made it clear that his children were not to be touched, and everybody obliged. However, from Day 1, Governor Palin’s children have been put on the chopping block to be smacked around at every little whim. And don’t even come with that stupid meme that she used her children as props in 2008, so they’re fair game. She did no such thing. She did only what every loving parent has done. She introduced us to her children, which is what President Obama did–which is what everyone does. Had she not allowed them to come on stage, she would have been accused of being ashamed of them. She’s not ashamed of her children, and that includes Trig. This is what bugs people like those affiliated with Wonkette. They would rather she had done what 90% of Americans pregnant with a Down Syndrome child still do–abort him. Since she didn’t, they’d like her to tuck him away somewhere so they don’t have to see him, so they’re not reminded of their own lack of humanity. How dare she love him so much? Doesn’t she know he has special needs? This is how these people think.

I sure hope Wonkette and Jack Stuef’s despicable attempt to mock Trig Palin and hurt his family was worth the price they’re now paying because now they’re the ones who have been hurt. Good.

We love Trig Palin and the Palin family–and we stand with them.
