Bristol Palin Chimes In On 'Duck Dynasty' Controversy

Bristol Palin

True to form for the Palin family, Bristol's comments are light on substance and heavy on hypocrisy. Said the younger Palin of the backlash to Phil Robertson:

[I]f you don’t agree with their lifestyle, they spread the most hate. It is so hypocritical it makes my stomach turn. They need to learn how to respect others’ opinions and not just jump to the conclusion that everyone who doesn’t support homosexuality and gay marriage is homophobic.

It's hard to fathom any of her strawmen spewing something as hateful as Phil Robertson did in a sermon from a few years ago when he said,

They’re full of murder, envy, strife, hatred. They are insolent, arrogant, God-haters. They are heartless, they are faithless, they are senseless, they are ruthless. They invent ways of doing evil.

She also assumes, wrongly, that all opinions are valid and deserving of respect. Unfounded climate change denial, for example, is not of equal validity to evidence proving climate change to be true. Similarly, opinions baselessly demonizing gays are not of equal validity to those arguing for equality and thus are not entitled to the same level of respect.

Lastly, yes, not supporting homosexuality or gay marriage is homophobic. This is unambiguous. Just as not supporting Judaism is antisemitic and opposing miscegenation is racist, so too is not supporting homosexuality or gay marriage homophobic. Just as one need not be a robe-wearing Klan member to be a racist, neither does one need to be an Uganda-level hater to still be a homophobe.

Bristol Palin Denies Her Son Tripp Used an Anti-Gay Slur: VIDEO


Last night Brandon posted a now widely-circulated video from Life's a Tripp, Bristol Palin's reality show, in which her son Tripp is seen calling her what looks like the word "faggot".

On her blog today, Palin denies that's what he said:

Let me be clear.  I’m not proud of what he did say.  Sadly, he used a different “f word.”

Lifetime filmed over 12 months (on and off) and they caught a moment on film that would cause any parent to be red in the face.  Tripp is always surrounded by adults – around the campfires with cousins and their friends, at the shop with my dad and his snowmachine buddies.  He’s apparently picked up some language that I’d prefer he not use. On national television or at home.

I do oppose gay marriage, as I’ve written about before (and the HuffPo points out).  I guess the temptation to label my three year old son is just too great for the lefty papers to resist.  However, one of my new Twitter followers made an excellent point.

He tweeted that the left tries to hold my three year old son more accountable than their adult spokespeople.

You might as well tell him that all this time he thought you were human you were really a horse.

 A handful of advocates, armed with nothing more than their keyboards, have put many of the country’s largest retailers, including Apple, Microsoft, Netflix and Wal-Mart, on the spot over their indirect and, until recently, unnoticed roles in funneling money to Christian groups that are vocal in opposing homosexuality.

The advocates are demanding that the retailers end their association with an Internet marketer that gets a commission from the retailers for each online customer it gives them ... a share of the commission that retailers pay is donated to a Christian charity of the buyer’s choice, from a list that includes prominent conservative evangelical groups like the Family Research Council and Focus on the Family.

Bristol Claims Threats After Gay Marriage Critique


Bristol Palin last week injected herself into the gay marriage debate by dissing President Obama for citing his young daughters' support for his shift on the matter. Now Palin says she received death threats for her remarks, and appears to be pinning the blame on Hollywood:

[Palin shared] screenshots of some the comments written on her site, including ones that say "kill yourself," "may death be upon you," and "You all, including your son, deserve a slow, painful and miserable death."

However, the 21-year-old isn’t backing down and argued the death threats only serve to undermine her critics who are attacking her.

"Around Hollywood, there's lots of concern and great initiatives to try to encourage more kindness in this world,” she wrote. “Then why do I get so many messages telling me I should die?"

Palin claims in the post she is victim of “bullying.”

"Here's a newsflash, guys. Your hate and bullying won't work,” she wrote. “People see through it, and they don't like to be pushed around. You think it's completely obvious that you're right, but this younger generation is more pro-life than their parents, and voters just keep defending traditional marriage."

As Irish Central points out, Palin's chattiness on marriage, and the former Dancing With The Stars contestant's claims of threats, come mere weeks before the premiere of her latest reality show about her life as a single mother.

It's called Bristol Palin: Life's a Tripp. Because, you know, her kid's name is "Tripp." Word play!
