Bristol Palin's Heckler Speaks Out: VIDEO


TMZ caught up with the Stephen Hanks, the L.A. consultant caught on video heckling Bristol Palin at Saddle Ranch bar in West Hollywood. He says he has no regrets about what he said:

"The way she said 'homosexual'...She's a racist homophobe in my opinion...Her mother's a media whore and a money-grubbing whore, and a Dominionist who is evil and dangerous for this country...I think we all go to that line every day. Sometimes we stand behind the line and sometimes we cross it..."

  1. Not the single best spokesman for the community, but he's not the worst and he's not wrong in anything he's said yet.

  2. he's not even REMOTELY wrong in anything he said here.

    did i like his "tactic" in the bar? no. do i understand where it came from? yes. would i have done what he did? no. would i have said "something"? YES.

    Bristol did indeed show her true colours with her specific use of the word "HOMOSEXUAL" - and all LGBT and LGBT-supportive people need to clue in to exactly WHO uses that word, and realize WHY.

    There is a very specific reason that the anti-gay bigots in culture use the word "homosexual" and folks who arent' aware of it had better brush up on it.

    Bristol is a pious little hypocrite, as well. Making all her money from giving....talks about abstinence? if she truly BELIEVED in her message she'd be doing it for free. as is, getting knocked up was the best financial move of her life.

    and her new story on getting pregnant? tried alcohol for the first time (yeah right), got drunk, passed out in a tent, levi screwed her while she was unconscious, woke up and talked it over with him, decided not to do it again, then decided to do it again with no condom and BOOM ! - she's pregnant.

    yeah right.

  3. I agree with Just me. Although I'd add that I'd rather have this guy as the "gay spokesman" than Perez Hilton anyday.

  4. Whether this guy is right about his opinion of Sarah Palin or not. He deserved to get punched in the head by Bristol. And the fact that he is trying to act so "offended" by the way she said the word "homosexual" - after he called this girls mother a "F'ING WHORE" - in the most seething way possible - is laughable. I don't like Bristol and I don't like anything about that family - but she didn't say anything with NEARLY the amount of hatred that he did. He is a 47 year-old man - he should have NEVER behaved like such a total jackass. And I'm pissed for wishing Bristol had cold clocked him.

  5. i think he's kinda hot. a little bombastic, perhaps, but definitely hot.

  6. He is so right........
    She tries to say who should have babies, parades around in a Christian born again self righteous shirt and seems to be under the impression that anyone who hates hre quitter mother must be a "homosexual".

    She is dumb and putting herself in the public domain with her TV appearances. That makes her completely deserving of negative comments.

  7. Bristol's the whore.

  8. I don't know anyone can be in agreement with this idiot. His behavior was completely 100% inappropriate! Regardless of how he felt about her Mother, he should not have behaved in that manner. The man needs to grow up and seek some help regarding his anger.

    Posted by: Matt | Sep 23, 2011 3:47:31 PM

  9. This guy needs to STFU. He's now calling Bristol a racist. Based on what?

    I am as far left as you can get, but if anyone talked about my mom (who is a Republican) in the way he did, that dude would not be standing.

    And his argument that a young mom has no credibility to speak about abstinence is ridiculous. That's like saying only non-drug users can speak to drug addicts about staying clean.

    Go away, dude. Seriously.

  10. @Matt - If you watched the video it was Palin who attacked this man, cameras in tow. He was perhaps a bit too passionate and could have used better language but Palin was looking for some press for her "reality" show and she got it. "Why do you hate my mother? Is it because you're a homosexual?" That pretty much says it all. To her credit, having a shrill shrew for a mother doesn't really give her the coping skills to deal with a situation such as this.

  11. I totally understand where he's coming from and Bristol was there...time for target practice! I think it would have been more appropriate if Sarah was there to receive his greeting...that would have made total sense. But Bristol is the next best thing! We've got good reason to be angry and venting it healthy...where's Sarah when you need her?

  12. @ Matt : yeah, and we all need to cooperate and talk about our differences and how we can resolve them through a civil discourse.

    Yeah, and there should be bi-partisan cooperation in the Congress.

    Don't you get that the ideological divide is unbridgeable, that the extreme right is just that , extreme.
    It would be a dialogue of the deaf.
    The aim of the extreme right is to role back on our rights, to reintroduce DADT and the sodomy laws......why ?
    Because we are all sinful and abominations. Ask Palin and Santorum and Bachman......jeez, her husband has even made a business out of denigrating us.

    Spare me the homage to "politeness"......that ship has sailed.

  13. Since Bristol and her demented mother are both such serious attention and media whores her next reality show visit will probably be San Francisco's Castro district but she might want to watch her pretty little(medically enhanced) mouth since the gay men/queens/homos here would both verbally and physically smack her(or her pathetic mother)down without hesitating. Now that is some "reality" TV I could watch! :)

  15. @ GIGI

    "a bit too passionate" really? That's what you call it?

    Please, he is a bad example for anyone to be following. He is nothing but trash fighting with trash. He needs to grow up and chill. What was he trying to accomplish or prove?

    Posted by: Matt | Sep 23, 2011 3:59:31 PM

  16. She used the word HOMOSEXUAL.

    DUDES.....that freakin' speaks volumes.

    you show me someone who chooses to use that word who isn't a bigot and i'll show you a unicorn.

  17. @jackfkntwist

    So what should we do? Start calling every evangelical christian a whore or any other derogatory name....if all civility is out of the window, why not just beat the hell out of everyone that doesn't agree with you. Being a gay man, living in the current situation, I too become frustrated but it doesn't do anyone any good to turn that frustration into hatred. Being angry is one thing but volatile hatred is just unacceptable.

  18. Two dysfunctionals walked into a bar...

    Posted by: anon | Sep 23, 2011 4:14:26 PM

  19. This guy looks a little like Roger Simon of Pajamas Media. Although Roger Simon would NEVER speak to any woman the way this man did.

    Kiwi, we finally agree on something! Yes, getting knocked up WAS the best financial move of her life (so far.) And it didn't even occur to me to consider that if Bristol really believed her abstinence message she's speak about it for free. That's a good point.

    As a social conservative myself, I've always found the Palin family an embarassment. What kind of woman would parade a pregnant unmarried daughter around on a convention stage? Any liberal teenager of 1986 would have known what was wrong with this. Yet Sarah needed to be told? Now Bristol is a "star" for ....being an unwed mother! And we can't even blame this on the RINOS. Conservatives are hardly critical of her for this breach of etiquette that they would have screeched about to the high heavens if it had occurred in the Obama family. Sarah was "one of our own" so we had to overlook her lack of digity. Sad.

    I'll be happy when the whole Palin family exits the national stage for good.

  20. @ Matt ; when they come for you I will still be fighting.
    and yes the evangelicals are worse than whores !

    Posted by: JackFknTwist | Sep 23, 2011 4:18:31 PM

  21. ANON got it right. The man could have expressed his dislike for Sarah Palin in a less aggressive manner, with less abusive language. Calling the woman a 'whore' is preposterous (really, who would pay for sex with that?). Calling her a lying, fear-mongering homophobe would have been right on the money.

  22. @jackfkntwist

    You just made my point! You are just as bad as those you hate. A hypocrite to the nth power! Hate begets hate, poor soul, when will you learn?

    Posted by: Matt | Sep 23, 2011 4:27:01 PM

  23. HE WAS PAID!!!!
    Reality TV is totally staged. Do you really think they just showed up at the bar with their camera crew? This guy was a plant and the whole thing was a set-up.

    Posted by: The Iron Orchard | Sep 23, 2011 4:30:42 PM

  24. Even though I agree with what he said, he did not deliver his message correctly. I guess it was because he was so drunk and wasn't able to give her good answers on why he detests her mom. And there are MANY reason to detest sarah plain, yet he was unable to articulate that.

    Also, when bristol says "Why do you hate my mother? Is it because you're a homosexual?" He should have said something, what!? Are you calling me a "fag". The way bristol said it does sure seems to me that she wanted to say "fag".

    Read more:

    Maybe he should have been calling bristol a whore instead ... I mean she was sleeping around before "marriage". Oh wait! She never got married! What a "fornicator"! ;-)

    At the end of all this mess, it does not matter. She's just having the confrontation for some drama. Her "reality" show will stink just like her mother's tv shows. Remember, sarah palin is polling very low, so they are getting their comeuppance already

  25. ACORLANDO: the bar is on Sunset Blvd. and not necessarily on the gay strip. But yes, it is a bar with MANY gays living in the city, not to mention a city council that is half gay.
