Bristol Palin Blasts Obama For Listening To His Pro-Gay Gals


In case you've been missing illogical statements from the Palin brood, daughter Bristol today admonished President Obama for listening to his girls' words on gay marriage, which he credited with helping him "evolve" toward full acceptance of marriage equality.

"While it’s great to listen to your kids’ ideas, there’s also a time when dads simply need to be dads," Palin said in a blog post. "…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.”

Pardon, Ms. Palin, but I don't believe there's any evidence suggesting kids do better in heterosexual homes. Actually, there's no proof whatsoever of that go-to right-wing argument. Nice try, though.

  1. That whole clan are just so douchy. Unwed Christian celeb mom tells America the importance of growing up in a good Christian mom and dad family. Really honey!? In the Biblical world would not someone have stoned you by now?

  2. Even IF kids "do better in a mother/father home" (NO evidence to support that, plenty of evidence to support they do just as well, however), why in the world wouldn't we give equality to the parents of the estimated 2 MILLION children being raised in LGBT homes? Wouldn't we WANT to make life as easy for them as possible by giving their parents equal rights and equal benefits?

    Failed argument continues to fail.

    But hey, Mitt Romney agrees with Bristol Palin. He must be like, super smart.

  3. Don't these people know how much "traditional marriage" has evolved.

  5. Yes, the poster child for straight marriage!

    Ummm, obviously your Mom listened to you and "evolved" on the subject of unwed teenaged mothers. You know, those slutty girls the religious conservatives (her Mom's ilk) usually like to judge and demonize. She apparently changed her tune with you!

  6. How can that crystal-addled little fool not know what a laughing stock she makes of herself? Palin girls must really like the taste of their own feet.

  7. But don't question her comments or lack of knowledge because Mamma grizzly will then turn it back and blame the "lame stream media" and liberals for what just came out of her daughter's mouth. Wait for it any second now.

  9. If only we adhered to the literal teachings of the Bible this idiot would have already been stoned to death for being an unwed teenage mother and we wouldn't have to listen to her rantings.

  10. I am trying to find the citation online but didn't a recent study (last three months or so) indicate that lesbian couples make the best parents?

  11. Maybe I have no right to comment on a story that I did not bother to read . . . but that is kind of the point I want to make.

    Why is anyone listening, and worse, repeating anything Bristol Palin has to say?

    Jesus Antony Christ! What's next the musings of Willow, then Trip!!

    Stop it Towleroad. Just stop it!!

  12. Father of her baby = Levi johnston, so there's that.

  13. @Ricco: I think Towleroad should have posted it! We need to know about and be able to point out the hypocrisy and sheer stupidty of the same people who want to deny us equal rights. She mad the comments, so it should be reported...this is what we are dealing with from the religious right.

  15. As a social conservative and a Republican, I find the entire Palin family to be one huge embarrassment. I mean if Bristol entered into a lesbian marriage her son would have TWO parents instead of the half parent he has now (an immature still acting like a teenager girl whose baby daddy ignores his offspring.) While this isn't what I'd wish for the poor kid, it also is a good argument in FAVOR of same-sex marriage. But Bristol appears too stupid or naive to understand this or understand why she of all people should be the last person in the Republican orbit to talk about marriage in any form.

    For the past few years the social conservative movement has been afflicted with a terminal case of D-U-M-B. I don't know how the heck this happened. If this keeps up, I myself may have to run for office just to correct the problem. Then Towleroad posters can come to my rallies and throw real tomatoes...not just the Internet virtual ones!

  16. Who cares what this bottom feeding troll has to say? Trolls are best ignored.

  17. @topdawgbombadil: yes, the religious folks are always saying we should follow the traditions of the bible! LOL

  19. Could anything be more bizarre than a morality lesson from any of the palins... one of the most celebrated disfunctional families in the US?? After hearing this I've come to the final conclusion that they were dropped off here by aliens...the ones from outer-space...who conveniently forgot to come back to get them.

  20. I've had a somewhat bad day and needed a good laugh. Thanks Bristol for your idiotic comedy of words.

    Posted by: Ro | May 10, 2012 4:02:22 PM

  21. Wrong, Paul B. The Palins are actually robots created by the Left to make social conservatives look bad. They were a political gift from some liberal scientist to the Democratic party. And they are the gift that keeps on giving.

    .......(a joke,folks. I only wish they really WERE just robots!)

  22. Lol, looks like Trig's not the only Palin child with severe developmental issues.

  23. Why would anyone, ever imagine that a sentient being could issue forth from such a caustic environment as Sarah P's uterus. Any spawn whelped from that Snow Hag of the North will not only be missing a chromosome or two, but their guttural bleating's should be given as much credence as one would the sound of fingernails on a classroom blackboard.

  24. I still blame McCain for bringing this bigoted family to national prominence. They're like an evil version of the Kardashians.

  25. This is the most classic quote from the past day. I don't know where to begin... Hmm, she obviously didn't listen to her mom when she got knocked up, every study shows kids do just as well if not better when raised by gay parents, etc, etc, etc...
