Bristol Palin's gay marriage rant: Obama girls watch too much 'Glee'

ProudProgressive 2012/05/10 18:42:50

If there was any remaining doubt about the wisdom and courage President Obama has shown in once again leading this country forward by his public support of same sex marriage, a word from a member of America's favorite family of trailer park rejects ought to seal the deal. Bristol Palin, the promiscuous unwed mother who was once touted as America's poster child for abstinence only, seems to be trying to prove to America that she is just as ignorant and just as bigoted as her corrupt mother. I guess being laughed off the stage at "Dancing With the Stars" wasn't enough to convince the younger Palin that she shouldn't get involved in things that are too intellectually complex for her ghost writers to handle.

And given that her latest rant not only spreads patently false claims but also seeks to implicate the President's children in her silliness, can there be much doubt that Sister Sarah is behind this latest embarrassment? After all, there has rarely been anyone in American politics more ready and willing to exploit and humiliate her own family for political gain, so why should anyone else's family be off limits. And the same nonsensical bullsh*t that the Right has pushed for so long - that "in general kids do better growing up in a mother/father home" - a notion that Bristol herself disproves - is pure Sarah.

Bristol Palin's gay marriage rant: Obama girls watch too much 'Glee'
By CAITLIN MCDEVITT
5/10/12

Bristol Palin thinks it’s laughable that President Barack Obama’s children influenced his decision to support same-sex marriage.

“While it’s great to listen to your kids’ ideas, there’s also a time when dads simply need to be dads,” Bristol, the eldest daughter of former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, wrote in a blog post titled “Hail to the Chiefs – Malia and Sasha Obama” on Thursday.



Obama said on Wednesday that his daughers' acceptance of friends with same-sex parents helped prompt his "change in perspective." In response, Palin writes:

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.

In this situation, it was the other way around. I guess we can be glad that Malia and Sasha aren’t younger, or perhaps today’s press conference might have been about appointing Dora the Explorer as Attorney General because of her success in stopping Swiper the Fox.

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 we go again with the thousands of years of thinking. As I posted in a response to the new Obama campaign commercial with regard to what Romney stated as his opinion on same sex marriage thought: 3,000 yrs of human history shouldn't be discarded so quickly." Maybe we should ask women if it was OK to discard 2,917 yrs of history when the right to vote for woman passed!!!! Lets ask black people if it was OK to discard 2,853 yrs of history with the emancipation proclamation.

    Like mother, like daughter. Bristol is selling herself in any form or fashion just like Sarah, to make that money. Talk about some successful capitalists- all body and no brains. See how far they’re willing to go for the cash at http://dregstudiosart.blogspo...

    Bristol only has the relevence you grant her with your obsessive need to rant about the Palins. Seriously, she's a dumb young person not running for office. And at this point her mom isn't even running for office. But she says something that few people are going to be exposed to and you grant it more airtime pretty much just to mock.

    I mean did you miss any insult? Trailer park trash (because people that live in trailer parks are worthless right)? Dancing with the Stars? Promiscuous (because liberals think thats wrong too . . . wait, did you just dance around calling her a slut PP? Fluke would be appalled). Did you miss any potential insult? You just copied an pasted an open file right?

    Seriously, this isn't a story. This is an excuse to unleash a little. Its lame.

    This has Falin' Palin written all over it, as I doubt Bristol has ever had an original thought, and we know no aspirins between her knees ever either. Another attempt by Momma Grizzley to get a dig in. Unbalanced Fox News might have even demurred at Sister Sarah trying that on air.

    I don't see any point. The President obviously did not base his decision on this issue on his daughters' feelings; he merely said that that was one factor to consider. And he's right - do we teach our children tolerance and respect for people whose lives aren't exactly the same as our own, as the President and the First Lady have done, or do we teach them that the only thing that matters in life is your own ego and your own bank account and it's ok to slander and attack anyone who gets in your way and that ethics regulations and an oath of office are meaningless when there's a profit to be made, as Bristol's mother has done?

    He seems to be a wonderful loving and supportive father, and the First Lady seems to share those traits. I guess Bristol's just jealous, what with coming from a family where parents exploit their own children for political and financial gain, where they are made the object of national ridicule just so their mother can get another 15 seconds of fame, where words like "ethics" are foreign to the language, where she can't even openly love her own firstborn child because her mother wants to pretend he was her child instead. Sad, really.

    So in your view a dad isn't being a dad when he listens to his kids? That's nonsense. He didn't decide to make his support public BECAUSE his daughters don't see why there should be a distinction between same sex couples and "traditional" couples; he simply saw them as an example of why discriminating against same sex couples makes no sense.

    No, in my view a dad isn't a dad when he lets his kids make his decisions for him, but that's neither here nor there.

    My point was, the point Ms. Palin had was the one I posted from the article, after you said, "I don't see any point." Nothing more, and nothing less.

    I don't think the President's daughters made his decision for him. He obviously has spent a great deal of time on this issue, and the fact that he mentioned his daughters as one example of the many factors that led him to his ultimate conclusion has no particular significance. In my opinion, of course. :) Personally, I think the suggestion that there are times when parents should ignore their own children simply reflects how badly disfunctional Bristol Palin's own upbringing was.
