Responding to the Viral Sensation, Loving my Brother

I’ve been totally blown away by the responses to my post below, which went viral beyond my wildest dreams. Hundreds of thousands of people have read the post, and it’s been shared – at the time I write this — 88,000 times. Thank you for reading, sharing, and commenting. I received over 1,700 comments, and I’d like to take a moment to respond to some of them. The comments basically fell into one of three categories:

Category 1: “I hate you.”

Example: “JLE” at 7:52 am on March 20:

Bristol Palin you have some nerve President Obama does not owe you anything your a nobody, a young loose cow with kid!!!!! You and your mom are true idiots your Alaskan Hillbillies so go back in your igloos stay out of the public eye we are tired of your UGLY FACED YOUR SON TOO& BROTHER TOO!!!!

At first, the Patheos moderators weren’t letting these types of comments through, but we decided to let you have at least a glimpse of the things people say about my family. (We still don’t approve the dozens and dozens of truly obscene rants. This is a family blog after all!) You can see that Bill Maher is not some lone comedian with a unique perspective on us. Rather, he taps into something evil and dark that resides in the hearts of many people who hate our family. Even after so many years, I’m still a little surprised when people make fun of my little brother. They, however, can’t silence me or my mom. In fact, they motivate the to keep speaking. Evil can’t win!

Category 2: “You’re comparing apples to oranges.”

Example: Donna Hess wrote at 1:14 am on March 20:

Bull, a comedian pretty much can say what they want. Limbaugh actually represents the Republican Party. They pay him. Obama has nothing to do with what Bill Maher says it is his opinion.

Bill Maher is much more than a comedian. He’s a big-time political player who hides behind the “comedian” label whenever he gets criticized. His guest list represents a huge chunk of the Washington establishment and sometimes even includes prominent Republicans. And as I said in my original post, he’s put himself straight in the middle of presidential politics by giving $1,000,000 to President Obama’s SuperPAC. Bill Maher isn’t just some guy behind a microphone in a seedy comedy club in the middle of nowhere. He’s a comedian and political commentator like Rush is an entertainer and political commentator. He’s a little bit less popular, but his professional failure compared to Rush doesn’t make him any less accountable for his vile speech.

Category 3: “We love you!”

Example: most of the other 1,700 comments – thanks!

I think the reason my blog post struck such a chord is that people are fed up with the double standards in this country. The very people who call out for “civility” in our conversations ignore the hatred that spills out of their friends, allies, and million-dollar donors. However, most people have shown such an amazing amount of support to my family over the years, and we are so thankful to have gotten to “meet” you… even if it’s just in the comments section below.

Thanks so much for talking with me here at my blog. It won’t always be political, but sometimes I have to speak out!

    Me and my family fall in the third category! We love you, your mom, and the rest of your family down here in MS! I, myself, am a teen mom and you’ve been an inspiration to me!
    Keep doing good, you really change and inspire people more than you know!

  • http://www.facebook.com Bryce Perry

    Bristol, just keep doing what your doing an let the haters be haters! You’re family is amazing and so are you! Youve worked really hard for your son and people don’t realize that! I admire you for that!

  • Melissa Nelson

    Its always the truely ugly that spread hate.
    I think your brother has a beautiful face!!!
    What a blessing!

  • Cara

    I have to admit, Bristol, that as someone who has a huge amount of respect for your mother, I did not really have an opinion of you other than realizing how strong you were to have your baby and commit to raising him. Your last two blogs have left me struck by your ability to get at the issue with just the right amount of emotion and connection. I will definitely continue to read – political or not!

  • Lisa

    Stay strong Bristol and God Bless you and your Family!!

  • Jan Sheffield

    Hey there Bristol! I am so very sorry that you have to be exposed to the slime of America on you very own blog. Hatred isn’t a family value…if you know what I mean! I love that you aren’t afraid to get out there and face the enemy. Know that those wicked ones are in the minority! I have a lot in common with your family! Right after your mom accepted the VP spot I actually got custody of my granddaughter that was born out of wedlock. I am glad that your family is ‘REAL’ and can relate to what goes on out here in the heartland! God bless you and your family! We love you and pray for you all the time! By the way, my girl knows who you and your mother are. I am raising her right!

  • http://www.ak365.blogspot.com LisaJ

    The people who leave the mean and ignorant comments, the ones who make fun of your little brother….they do so because they have nothing intelligent to say. They have no facts to debate with you, no knowledge of what is really going on, so instead they draw on the false information the media puts out and spout ridiculous torments and remarks that one might find on an elementary school playground.

    As for the picture of Trig, oh my goodness!! He is getting SO big and what an absolutely adorable little guy he is! What a wonderful addition to the world he is, thanks so much for sharing this snapshot with us.

  • Sue Peterson

    Bristol, You are a young woman who should be commended on your strength and courage. I have said to my husband as well as other’s…..God had a hand in John McCain choosing your mother, most of us had never heard of Sarah Palin until that day when she was announced as VP candidate…….and even though it didn’t turn out the way we had hoped…..your mom is a voice and she speaks the truth that the left does not want to hear. I cannot believe the cruel things that have been said about your family and little brother…just keep on doing what your doing…who knows maybe you will one day be president !!!

  • Tammy

    ‎”Courage is not simply one of the virtues, but the form of every virtue at the testing point.” (C. S. Lewis)

    Bristol, You (and your mom!) have courage in spades!!! So proud of you for fighting the good fight!!! God bless you and yours!!

  • Carol Leonard

    You are a inspiration and breath of fresh air just like your momma!!! Prayers for civility during these very trying times. Sure would be nice if the President of these United States got off his political pulpit and took a stand for you, your mom and the other women who have been spoken to or about in such vile manner…$1m is holding him back…just saying. God bless you and your beautiful family.

    • Sweetpea

      He has. Many, many times. Where have you been?

  • speppers69

    That is SUCH an adorable picture of Trig! As the auntie of a special needs nephew I understand the cruel and hurtful things that people say. And I have SEEN some of the AWFUL things that people have said about you and Trig and your family. I am so glad to see you standing up for your little brother. If it keeps one person from saying something vile and mean then it will have done its job. Let’s hope that it does. The world would be a much better place if it did.

    • L3

      Trig looks just like her doesn’t he!

      • Bryan

        l3 your a idiot!!!

        That made me laugh so hard vodka almost came out of my nose.

  • Donna in NY

    I knew from the moment this blog began last week that it was going to be GOOD! Thank you Bristol for giving us a different perspective into the lives of you and your awesome family.

  • Claudia

    onderful Bristo, keep up the good work….May GOD BLESS you & your family.

  • Judy

    Bristol – you are one of the strongest young ladies I have come across. I’ve never met you but I have read your book and have followed your family since 2008. Keep up the good work – stay strong. There are more of us out here that fall into #3 than there are in #1 or #2.

  • Claudia

    that’s supposed to be Wonderful!!

  • Jennifer Swartz

    It is so easy for me to say “let them say want they want, it doesn’t matter,” BUT in reality it is different when anything bad is said about “ME.” I admire you for taking a stand. We will always face evil, and what makes us different is how we deal with it and respond. Your response did not add more evil and knowing you have restrained yourself puts you on the high road AND much much much better off in the long run.

  • Tracy McCallister

    Omg Trig is so adorable! The first comment is actually sickening, but obviously we are hearing from someone with some deep seeded mental issues that can have so much hate and venom to attack a child, and not even talk about real issues. She or he needs some prayer.

  • Jodi

    Bristol –
    I love your spunk! You are a very well spoken, and intelligent young woman and I am proud that there are strong and independent women like you who do not allow themselves to be bullied into falling for left’s garbage.

    As a woman, I am also forever thankful for the trail your mother blazed.

    I love your family! Tripp and Trig are adorable little boys and anyone who would write vile things about such innocent souls are themselves damaged beyond repair.

  • http://crayfisher.wordpress.com votermom

    Thank you, Bristol, for always speaking up against the hate thrown against you. You and your mom & your whole family continue to inspire.

    PS Trig is so cute in that pic! Thanks for sharing it!

  • Melissa Cameron

    Thank you Bristol for speaking out! I, like you, am a young conservative. It seems that so many of today’s youth are getting their news from the liberal media. It’s good to know that there are some young people with common sense. People are so into pushing their political agendas rather than being fair. It disgusts me what society has become.

  • Judy Henkel

    You go girl and your family too. Don’t ever go out of the public eye. Much love to you all.

  • Velma Bush

    I see sterling qualities in you and your family. I am sure that someday and probably not very long from now, you will hear the wonderful affirmation from the LORD say,”Well done, good and faithful servant.”

  • Lynda Armstrong

    You are neat young lady …you give a voice to young that girl that it okay to say no and if you lose the guy may be he was not worth having …as for your little brother he is such a gift from God…you mom gives hope and to people who have just given up….and from what I have read about your grandma …you have the neatest grandma a kid could ask for…

    Keep your Faith Thank God the Anchor does hold…
    In Christ

  • Jen

    I can’t believe people make fun of your brother. Everyone knows atleast one person who is effected by Downs. It’s not something to poke at or make fun of. It’s sad that people can get away with this. It shows a lot about a persons character when they would attack an innocent child. I guess there are A LOT of people without character.
    As for you and your family, I love all of you. Your mom cracks me up, your little boy is adorable, and you are beautiful. Stay strong, keep the faith, and to hell with the rest of them!
    Much love!

    What a beautiful example of womanhood, grace and maturity you are for young women everywhere.

    Be blessed, not stressed!

    • Richard Gallagher

      Thank you for telling the truth, living your life to the fullest and loving and caring for your child, little brother and family. The hatred you hear is self-hatred from those who could never do what you have done. They are lonely, afraid and angry at a world they do not understand.

  • William Lee Martin

    Thank you and your family for all you do and stand for. You honor us with your stance on issues. I believe being respectfull to the otherside is dead. my respects to you and your family.

  • Ellen

    Isn’t it ironic that the more people hate, the more it seems the simple rules of correct spelling and grammar elude them?

    Thank you for calling attention to the double standard. Let us know if he calls! (Ha!)

  • HAC

    Ms Palin, I just wanted to say thanks for your grace and poise. The ladies and gentlemen in your family always represent Americans and America well. Thanks for standing for all of us, even when so many don’t stand up for you. I pray my two girls learn from you and grow to be as gracious in the face of hardness and adversity as you have become.
    With utmost respect,
    hac

    Don’t “hate” on our igloos here in Alaska! I happen to have satellite attached to mine!
    I’m sorry but I believe most Alaskans have more tact than a lot of people down south. I admire your courage and it breaks my heart that people in our country cannot be civil.

    Only 3.3″ until we hit record snowfall!!

  • Pat Stephenson

    You truly are an example of a positive and encouraging young lady…Yes, you became a mother very early but, you’ve proved to be responsible and caring and very mature. You have become a role model and I am so proud that you and your family don’t let those who want to hurt others get you down. Stay strong, be true to your faith and God will continue to bless you and keep you in the confort of His arms! I admire you for stepping up and speaking out to help other teenagers and young adults. May God continue to work through you and your family and for all people and America!!!

  • Diya

    Your little brother is precious!! Keep up the good work, loving your blog so far!

  • colliemum

    Do speak out, Bristol, your letter to Pres Obama showed that you can speak out with the best of them. It was excellent.

    Thanks for that photo of Trig – gosh, he’s growing all right! And he’s got his father’s eyes …

    God bless you and your family, and keep you safe in the shadow of His wings.

  • Gilly Mac

    Really, Bristol? It is so telling that all you care about is the number of times your post has been read or shared. “Viral beyond my wildest dreams.” SMH Don’t you have more important things to do than make up this fake outrage, and allow yourself to be used by your mother’s political staff? Yikes.

    Everyone is entitled to their opinions, but there is no need for you to pimp out your son and disabled brother while expressing them. Having a disabled family member does not insulate you from disagreement or criticism. Certainly they are beautiful kids and nobody with a heart would say anything negative about them, but that doesn’t mean you need to keep bringing them up. I know you are getting what you want by inserting yourself into the public discourse this way – ATTENTION. I also know you won’t take this good advice, but you should: go to school, get educated, be a good mother, and keep your child out of the public eye.

    • John.Frank

      This comment is a classic example of the hatred that Bristol Palin spoke about in her post.

      Bristol Palin points out the President’s double standard towards misogyny in a straight forward and well written blog post.

      The post goes viral in a huge way.

      A Front-Row Seat To Palin Power

      So, Bristol Palin writes a post about what has happened, and someone immediately shows up and writes down their hate.

      P.S. Excellent post Bristol Palin. Keep speaking out on subjects that are important to you and other young women across America.

      • Gilly Mac

        There is nothing hateful about what I wrote. It is very obvious that Miss Palin desires to be some kind of celebrity. Disagreement comes with the territory.

        • Ed Fiskeaux

          And you Gilly, are adding to her celebrity status by commenting as in her #1 or #2 category. Go start you your own blog and see how long it takes you to have over 88,000 shares and comments.

          • Gilly Mac

            Well, I don’t desire to have a blog, Ed. But rest assured if I did, it would not be exploiting the image of my son or disabled brother. I respect what Meghan McCain does, though I don’t always agree. At least she educates herself and has something of substance of say. Bristol seems very much like her mother – attack, and then when called on it, play the victim. Bristol – Go to school. Stop getting surgeries, badmouthing the President of the United States, and trying to be a celebrity. Do what is best for your boy and keep him OUT of the public eye. I hope his father has given permission for this kind of use of his son’s image. If I were him, I’d be furious.

        • http://primordialslack.com Joan of Argghh!

          It is so telling that all you care about is the number of times your post has been read or shared. “Viral beyond my wildest dreams.” SMH Don’t you have more important things to do

          Standard troll-speak. Boilerplate. I’ve had it leveled at me almost word-for-word by people with no other argument to make. And I’m a nobody.

          Casting aspersions upon Ms. Palin’s intentions is thought-policing and passive mud-slinging. Man up, coy boy, and make your best pass at a real argument; something that doesn’t set yourself as moral arbiter of what you can’t possibly know.

          • Sweetpea

            So nobody is supposed to comment on the very obvious publicity seeking going on here? Drumming up more donation to the SarahPAC as we speak, I’m sure. But no, pay no attention to that…

  • Rachel

    You have an amazing family. Every single one of you is a beautiful person, inside and out. Wish I knew you personally, but love what you allow us to see :) Blessings as you persevere!

  • Elizabeth Mullins

    Love how your example for comment type # 1 says you and”your” family are idiots and hillbillies, yet her spelling, grammar and punctuation leave a little to be desired. :)
    Keep the faith and fight the good fight!

  • donna

    The nasty replies that you received are no surprise. The left likes to preach about diversity, tolerance and equality, but it only applies to those who agree with them and their narrow, liberal, and many times angry and vile view of everything.
    You have grown into an intelligent, informed, brave and responsible young woman, just like your mom, and I would be proud to call you my daughter.
    Thank you for keeping us up to date and informed. GOD never promised our paths would be smooth, but that He would walk it with us. GOD bless you!

  • Kim L.

    Just love it when you stand up for what is right!!! So sorry you had to be subject to hate messages and negative people. Hang in their kiddo…

  • RaeLynn DiNicola

    Bristol,

    My remarks will sound very much like some others, I just wanted to say that you are doing a great job, keep up the good work, and don’t ever back down from anyone. Bullies can’t get away with bullying. The reason they keep going after you and your family is because they are weak, and your family is a strong, God-Loving family. They can’t break any of you, and they don’t know how to handle that! The truth will always remain in the light, and soon, they will be back in the dark, until the next time they come crawling out of the shadows. Great job Bristol…. :-)

  • Ramona Long

    You have stated it very well. I would like to say “shake it off and let them be” but I get angry about the comments. I find it so very disgusting when I hear a comedians remarks made public…..it just shows the rest of the world the IQ they are working with…it isn’t much!! When someone needs to make nasty remarks about a disabled person, they obviously are not smart enough to do some “comedy in good taste” on their show. Sadly, there are people that watch these shows…what does it say about them???? I happen to love the Palin family..keep doing what you are doing!!
    You keep doing what you are doing….I happen to love the Palin family!

  • Mary Ann in Louisiana

    Bristol, you are an inspiration to every young woman today! It’s not asking too much to have equal and fair treatment. What has your family ever done to deserve the hate-inspired reaction from so many liberals. I believe your family values convict them of what is wrong in their lives so they have to bring you down to build themselves up.

  • DeniseVB

    Bristol … Keep on keeping on ! Oh and do make responding to your “critics” a regular feature :D

  • Jeffery Foster

    Keep fighting the fight. the uglyness in this world is growing and if we dont stick together and fight for our core beliefs, we are all certinally doomed……. Thank you for taking a stand and speaking out.

  • Chris in Ottumwa

    Common sense is what is missing from most of the people in politics, your mom being one of the few exceptions and its easy to tell that the common sense has been passed on!

    Thanks for sharing with us!

  • Rebecca

    So sorry that such ignorant people would attack your family in these ways, consider the sources. Your little brother is beautiful!! I saw your mom at the Bristol speedway in Tennessee on Sunday for the NASCAR race, I was excited to see her!! I just donated to the ShePAC, hopefully enough people will see this and we can double the million!!!

  • Linda

    I dont think all the people who say they hate you really do. I think when people really hate, they hide it deep within them, too coward to let it show. These trolls get a thrill out of posting outragious comments on your page for a few seconds it takes them to think deep to do it. In reality, I believe that the people who post hate at you see the Christ in you and are fighting HIM, not you. Keep on being the woman of God that you are, and always remember that no weapon formed against you shall prosper!! Blessings from Ohio!!!!!

  • Ken Scott

    Bristol, I have ben where you walk today. I had to keep telling myself that, GOD will be my only judge. People are the way they are because they have something to hide. Liberals, most of them don’t want to even think about GOD for if they did they would be held accountable. You brother by the way is one handsome man, It’s great he has such a loving family, and his own fan club. (count me in).
    It is my hope this will be a great country again, this si what your mom represents to me. I think you have a real AMERICAN FAMILY WITH VALUES, alot of the other class can’t stand that. Good Luck and if your mom ever needs anything (such as a donation for President,) hit me up, Ken Scott, St. Ignatius, MT.

  • Jesi Toomey

    Your brother is adorable and as sweet as can be. Shame on anyone who sneers at one of God’ s gifts. I have nothing but respect for you and your mom for standing up for what is right and staying strong in the face of adversity.

  • Chris in Ottumwa

    Top story on the fox news website! Well done!

    • Gwen

      Yeah, even more donations to the pac. You people don’t see this as a stunt to garner attention and quick cash? I don’t agree with the one or two comments re: Trig, but that’s all there were. There is no left wing backlash against Trig Palin. Most Dems like him and would love to see more of him and hope that, now that he’s away from the public eye, that he’s well cared for.

  • Kim

    You are a courageous person, and I wish you and you family all the best. I’m glad you use your notoriety to make a positive impact on culture. God Bless You.

  • Richelle Emery

    Keep shining the light on the double standard and hypocrisy. You are doing a great job. We are all Citizen Journalists now.

    Bristol, I love you and your family. It is really sad that we have people with such venom living in our country. Makes me wonder if they have families. Keep up the good fight. Many of us have your back and your Mom’s, as well.

    AGAIN YOU ROCK!!!!

  • http://heritagecreek.blogspot.com/ Debbie

    Bristol,
    Ever heard of the Wack-A-Mole game? That’s what I think when I read some of these comments (like the first guy on this thread). I wish I had a huge rubber mallet that I could just whack them with, when they start spewing their hatred!

    Keep up the great work and give your mom a hug from we Conservative Christians down in Texas!

  • Floyd Strayer

    I am so proud you called Mr. O.B. out on this issue. I am a little tired of the Liberals saying anything they like and condeming Conservatives for saying the most inocent thing. You have your mother’s fiber and I am sooooooo glad of that.

  • Michelle Arnold-Yeager

    Dear Bristol – The vast right wing (not conspiring to overthrow but to rebuild values in America) believes Todd and Sarah did a great job raising you! You are exactly what America truly represents – you got up from the things that knocked you down and dusted yourself off and learned to do what many of us old folks still haven’t mastered…showing grace and mercy where justice is deserved. You have, in my opinion, as much political savy as the ‘feet on the desk’ guy in the Oval Office. As for your darling brother, its interesting 2 me that the left, who are all over those PSA’s on bullying, sure can’t seem 2 stop demeaning those less fortunate, can they?

  • Pat Stephenson

    You truly are an example of a positive and encouraging young lady…Yes, you became a mother very early but, you’ve proven to be responsible and caring and very mature. You have become a role model and I am so proud that you and your family don’t let those who want to hurt others get you down. Stay strong, be true to your faith and God will continue to bless you and keep you in the comfort of His arms!! I admire you for stepping up and speaking out to help other teenagers and young adults. May God continue to work through you and your family for all people and America!!!

  • Carol

    Thanks for fighting back Bristol! Your brother is so cute. Same birthday as my 10 yr old son.
    I actually stopped going to a hair stylist in Tampa after 2 yrs, because she said she gets her political news from Bill Maher & comedy central. She was serious about it too….LOL! Capitalism at it’s best. My money found somewhere else go.

    We Love you guys KEEP It up!!!!!!! They will not silence us! America time to wake up!

    God bless you and your family. I am sorry that there are so many mean people out there. Stay strong and we will always support you!

  • Gilly Mac

    It is so funny that anybody believes you write this stuff!! Don’t let yourself be used this way, Bristol. It’s really unbecoming.

  • Lavina Burgess

    I believe, we are put on this earth by God, for a purpose. Life, begins at conception, when that first seed was planted inside of you, that began… the meaning of “life”. The heart, one of the most gifted organs that was giving to us, that keeps the blood flowing through our body, and the brain, to keep us alive, to love, to hate, to have emotions, our eyes, to see the beauty of life and all living creatures around us.
    The world we live in, the air we breath, the rain that keeps all living things green, that’s “life”. New planted seeds, that we put into my garden, that are now… beautiful flowers, that’s “life”. The old oak tree, we plant from a seed, now tall for all to see, and also gives us shade, that’s “life”. The little calf, born in the pasture, and when he first stands up to feed from his momma’s milk, that’s “life”. The caterpillars, or moths, coming out of its spun cocoon, that transforms into a beautiful butterfly, that’s “life”.
    And… most of all, The Meaning of life…
    Feeling for the first time, a little life growing inside, and, knowing that, God had a purpose for life, let it be human, animal or the seeds we plant in my garden.

    I thank God, for making Adam and Eve, because… without Adam, how could we give birth to someone as wonderful as a baby. Life… is so precious, it starts out as a tiny seed planted from Adam into Eve, not Adam and Steve. Thank you God, for our precious children, and thank you God, for giving us a
    mom and dad.

  • Pattie Grimes

    Your family is respectable as far as I can see. And is no different that most of the American families than I know. Keep up the good work. Kudos for keeping your head held high, even when the hits keep coming.

  • Regan Mies

    Bristol… A few months ago I stood behind you in line at Costco. I was surprised to hear the check out guy say “wow, she’s just like any other normal person”. He said it in a surprised way…like he expected you to be any different. I feel for you because although you are just like anybody else, you also put yourself out there and are in turn exposed to criticism more than most people who don’t have the balls to speak about what matters to them. You have a unique a gift in that you have the platform to speak to people and to get through to them. Your family has been thrust into the spotlight and not everyone will agree with what you have to say (don’t stop saying it though)…I have a great admiration for the fact that you can handle comments like the one at the beginning of this page in such a mature way. That would be so hard for me. I have a daughter who just turned one…and I know I would have a hard time not responding to comments about her. Don’t stop speaking about what matters to you… there’s always going to be someone who needs to hear it.

    • Gilly Mac

      I think it’s already been deleted, just like on her and her mother’s facebook page.

    From one tough Alaskan chick to another…I am so proud of you and your stand for whats right! Stay strong, I am praying for you and your family! <3

    Blessed are you when people revile you and persecute you and say all kinds of evil things against you falsely on My account.
    Rejoice, for your reward in heaven is great! For in this same way people persecuted the prophets who were before you.

    Love and Prayers for you and your family! :)
    Matthew 5:10~12

  • Maleena

    I am still a lot surprised at the things said to and about your family. The amount of venom is astounding. It breaks my heart for all of you. You guys do NOT deserve that kind of treatment. Trig is beautiful and a wonderful blessing from God! Tripp is a beautiful blessing. I pray for your family daily. Just know there are people behind you all.

    And Palin’s remember; Let your haters be your motivators!!!! Keep on keeping on! God Bless you all :)

    • Tina

      Amen!! :)

  • Gilly Mac

    And already deleted and banned from your facebook for posting the exact same, completely NON-hateful, disagreement. You are your mother’s daughter… Though, you are not nearly as quick at the suppression of disagreement as she is. Good luck to you, young woman. I expect you’ll be writing a book in ten years about how you’ve been used by your mother. Sigh.

    • Patriot

      Absolutly Gilly. Bristol deletes all comments from her FB page that are even slightly critical. Republicans only want to see things that reinforce their fragile belief system….any other information is quickly discarded.

  • Tina

    First of all I want to say that you and your mother and especially Tripp, have inspired me to return to school to get my degree in special education. I volunteer regularly with every special needs organization I possibly can. I want to add that you and your mom are VERY admired for your class, your poise, and your sense of self, and also for your self control. :) I know it has got to be hard to stand amongst the monsters that some how have been created in the last 4 years. The demons have truly come out in people over this last presidential term, for whatever reason is beyond me. It is so unfair to us, the real people of America, to sit back and watch so many of what we believe in be torn away (or at least attempted to). I pray that this country gets backs to what we stand for. It scares me to think that my 6 and 9 year old boys will be living in a country that no longer feels good to represent. We keep a flag out 24/7 in honor of what WE feel is right…God!! I pray that God has a bigger hand in desiding who gets elected this next term. My family and I, love the Palins (especially little Tripp) and support and honor ANYTHING that you stand by!!!! :)

  • Michele

    Being a Registered Nurse and a home grown Texan, I can state proudly ” We love our Palin’s!!!” As a Palin family supporter of every Palin big or small. I can only say the ingnorant bully and belittle those who can not defend themselves!!! Being a mother, I question society “how can we end bullying when an adult attacks a defenseless child based on his parents political views?” Im disappointed in adults that attack children instead of the important issues at hand. If someone doenst care for you or your family then they shouldnt be reading your blog and books, views or opinons because they are not going to agree with it either way. Someone is just looking for a reason to say something ugly about you or your family. Obviously they need a hobby instead of the ” I hate Palin band wagon” they have been riding!!! Chin up and Im sure you know the motto “Sticks & Stones”

  • Sandra Ort

    Bristol i love and respect you and your family. . I could be your Grandma. I want to show you in Latin a phrase that I have always wanted on a plaque. I would not say this in English, as i told a friend I guess I am thinking God can’t read Latin.
    Lol. Illegitimi Non Carborundum. Meaning in English Don’t Let the Bas___ds
    Get you down. I hope we have an open convention and your Mom is on the ticket. She will bring out the vote and would put in place those who know what to do to get this country on track. Remember Deborah from Book f Judges, when no man would go God sent her into the battle and if I recall she was victorious. The remarks about your little brother show the true lack of character of people who say vile things against your family. Remember Illegitimi Non Carborundum.

    • ROTFLMAO GMAFB

      Sandra,

      I doubt Bristol has a clue what Illegitimi Non Carborundum means, since she hasn’t yet learned proper English. :D

  • Robin

    Very nice blog! You write very well and I am looking forward to reading more! There will always be people with small minds, limited vocabulary (hence the liberal use of the ***) and a hateful agenda. You are a breath of fresh air! Please know that there are MANY more who support you and pray for you than those who would try to tear you down!

    God’s best to you in everything you do!

    Bristol keep keeping it real Girl! I’m with ya!

  • Robert Kessinger

    Bristol, you be you. Don’t let these armchair idiots stray you from the path you have chosen. Your Mom is beautiful. When she came to Springfield, Mo. it was a very happy day for us Ozark hillbillies. I hope that the people who make fun of someone with a disability realize how small that makes them in the eyes of others. Hope Mom & Todd are fine and you folks don’t forget to return to these Ozarks hills. We love them as much as you love McKinley. Be Good.

  • Dawn Elle

    Well I happen to love you & your family. I got the honor of actually holding Trig when he was a baby. It was out at Seward when we were camping. Thanks for the updated picture of him! He’s so precious!

  • Barbara Riddle

    I so admire the strength your family has. Like the post above says, don’t stop standing up for your beliefs – God fearing people will win in the end!! Your little brother is so sweet, I don’t understand people who ridicule others. Keep up the good work!!

  • Kendra

    Way to stand up for the double standard in this country! Cute picture of your son :)

  • ken

    After reading some of the hateful comments, it makes me realize that there is a definite line between good and evil. The people that are saying such vile things can’t help that they have a broken spirit. Had one of these people been present at the stoning when Jesus said, he without sin cast the first stone, one of these clowns would have. When these people scream and spew, they are showing an unclean spirit. Right now the dark side resides in the liberal minds. Being decent takes training and disipline, they have none.

  • Desi

    Bill Maher is a douche… Pardon the dirty word but I can’t think of anything else that best describes him. He sunk to a new level of low when he made fun of your brother but I believe he did it on purpose to stir controversy. He is still an animal, regardless of the reason. Doesn’t he know your mom is a force to be reckoned with? Ignore the nasty comments from people that say they “hate” you/your family, make wild accusations, and are just plain mean.

  • Judi Fields

    Your little brother is beautiful. I am the Great Grandmother of a wonderful 7 year old boy who just happens to have Down Syndrome. I wouldn’t trade him for any other child. I think you’d agree that these special children are the greatest teachers of all. Bless you and your family.

  • Ronda Szlavich

  • Caroline Jenkins

    This is my first visit to your blog. I am so happy that you are responding to Bill Maher and also to the idiots who post such ugly, ignorant things about you and your family. Keep up the fight, Bristol!

  • notafan

    maybe we need to post all the ugly things you and your sister had to say about gay people…

    • ROTFLMAO GMAFB

      @NotaFan, yes, maybe we do. Bristol is a vile bitch and a flaming hypocrite. It’s deplorable but unsurprising that she and her family use a disabled child to get sympathy and publicity.

      Another thing I find unsurprising is Bristol’s refusal to even address let alone condemn Limbaugh’s blather about Fluke. She’s obviously too stupid to comprehend how disgusting it is, and besides, in her selfish, narcissistic world, everything is always about her and her perceived victimhoood.

      Apparently she can’t comprehend the concept of abstinence either, which I honestly wouldn’t give a damn about were she not hypocritically pontificating about it to anyone brainwashed enough to listen to her. While she’s correct in stating that no one can silence her from whining about the bed she made that she’s lying in now, she best not expect to silence her critics either, at least until hell freezes over and the censoring pig who spat her onto the planet holds presidential office.

      I disagree with Maher on many fronts, but he is hardly a “professional failure” unlike Limbaugh, whose nauseating comments sent many of his sponsors running the other way.

  • Shelley

    Love that Trig!!! I was just thinking about him and wondering how he is doing. Thanks to you and your family for allowing us into your lives. Please tell your Mom that we want her to do another Sarah Palin’s Alaska series. We watched every week and couldn’t wait to see what was next.

  • Michael

    God Bless You Bristol and Your Wonderful Family. You show more wisdom and maturity than the hateful embarrassment that is Meghan McCain. You make your mother and father proud.

  • bellagrazi

    I was blown away by the response, too, Bristol. I know that most of the comments you received were positive. But it’s amazing how truly cruel some people can be. The hate directed at your family is absolutely beyond the pale. It’s pure evil. But there is a special place in hell for those who would hate on a child. Especially these two beautiful, sweet, innocent boys. What I admire most about you, Bristol, is your fighting spirit. It’s what I admire most about your mom, too. I know that the two of you will never, ever “sit down and shut up”. Continue to “fight like a girl”, Palin women! That’s how you win. And know that we will always have your back. May God bless you all.

  • Ashleigh Jayne

    Bristol, you and your mom are super cool. Very gorgeous. Tripp and Trig are the cutest things ever and anyone who makes fun of Trig are down right stupid and rude! Love Y’all!! Best of Luck.

  • Susan

    We (my family) all love your family Bristol….I met your Uncle during the election four years ago in Henderson NV…..We love & respect your mom and hope someday she will be the first woman President….All of us who have shared your lives the last four years feel our connection to you because we share the same.. way of living. That is why we want to defend you each time we hear the evil words and actions people enjoy extending to you all..but greater is He that is in you then he that is in the world…….your baby brother is adorable….and so is your son…..to me it is just so unbelievable how mean and cruel spirited people can become…..we are all truly now days living with good vs evil….but we know who will win in the end and that is all that matters…God BLess You…..I love Your Blog and so glad I found it…..

  • Glenn Briggs

    Some folks would have the gall to suggest that your courage is based on the wonderful character of your parents. I acknowledge they doubtless have influenced you positively, but cannot accept that you are not your own woman. YOU decide what you say and YOU take responsibility for your communications. Too few people are willing to accept that responsibility, but you clearly DO. You are a very brave person with enormous integrity and outstanding character. In the face of crippling adversity you have risen above it all and are living a life of love, caring, sound judgment and admiration for those family values which Our Lord tells us will lead to happiness. Thank you for being who you are!

  • Bobbi

    Obama was correct in telling people that your mother’s children are off limits but I doubt he owes anyone an apology every time another person says something offensive just because that person is a fan of his. He has already given his feelings on this matter. Why must he reiterate it?

    I don’t see members of the republican party reaching out to a young woman who testified about the importance of insurance companies providing contraceptives when they are willing to provide Viagra or Cialis free of charge. There are many married couples who want to wait to have children for varying reasons, some of which would be considered admirable to a party who complains of young couples having numerous children they cannot afford to care for.

    Additionally, as Ms. Fluke testified, there are many women who are put on birth control to help with DEBILITATING ovarian cysts. I was told I should for that very reason but refused and had friends who were also is this category.

    I didn’t have a child until I was 21 and married, not because I was on birth control but because I chose abstinence in my teens due to the SEX EDUCATION classes I took in school not because of anything I learned in my home (my mother was VERY absent when it came to sex education). Many people don’t have a positive role model in their home and need this type of education that they won’t get otherwise.

    The only reason this has become such a hot button is because the president showed compassion for a young woman who is not a celebrity or a person who has chosen to become a host on a national television news channel but a woman who is an advocate for all women. You should have celebrated another strong young woman willing to stand up for all women and not be surprised that the president didn’t call you to apologize for something someone has said about you because he has a vulgar mind. This is a hot button because the right wants to take the focus off of their own vulgar behavior and direct it back at another person rather than taking responsibility for one of their own. And Rush Limbaugh has been celebrated by many members of the republican party in spite of his misogynistic views and rants, including your mother, and has been called one of their own, that’s why.

    • Gilly Mac

      Here, here Bobbi! The key sentence to me was that her article “went viral beyond her wildest dreams.” This is only an attempt to get publicity for herself and further whatever 15 minutes of fame she may have left. I find it offensive that she must include her son and brother in her attention seeking.

      • Sue

        I have a solution – go away.

  • Lori Hylton

    You’re family is an inspiration to so many. Few of us could handle the attacks you’ve endured with such grace. But please forge on, you’re seriously driving them all crazier :)

  • Mary

    Thanks, Bristol, for allowing ‘us’ into your life and the lives of your family. In fact, the way I feel about it all: ‘You are family!’ I love all of you! Just remember: ‘People hated Jesus, too…and some of the same ones who are so cruel to your mom and family…they hate Jesus even today!’

    • Patriot

      yes Mary…when I think of the palins I think of jesus too! They have persecuted this family almost as much as our lord and savior!

  • Alaska Joe

    Bristol, you and your family are good people. Your brother woked for me when we were deployed with the 1/25th. I spent some time talking with him. From what he’s told me, and from what I’ve seen in the media, I truely do beleive that you are good hearted people. I don’t see how someone can make fun of your little brother. Don’t ever let those comments get you down. They don’t know you or your family.

  • Mongcon

    Ms Palin. Maher alluded in his arguably unfunny way to factual behavior of yours that, even you must admit, belie the philosophy and morals espoused by your family. If hypocritical behavior is not a valid target for humor, it’s hard to imagine what is.

    Rush Limbaugh, over the course of several days built a (faux) logical argument which was carefully calculated to bring listeners to the conclusion that Rush had drawn, that Ms. Fluke was a slut and prostitute. Those words have specific meanings, they are not just nasty names (which Maher has called your mother). If you can’t see why Maher’s is at best, vulgar humor, and that Limbaugh’s is arguably slander, then you need to spend some more time in school.

    Perhaps your effort to get a call from the President is something all your own, but it surprises me that anyone on the GOP side would attempt to draw equivalency between you and Sandra Fluke. You enjoy your fame solely because of the limelight extending from your mother. Your biography appears to accuse your own husband of rape.

    Sandra Fluke, on the other hand, is working her way through law school and is able to manage her own fertility effectively. Her notoriety (much enhanced by Limbaugh’s comments) results from her poise and ability to be well spoken on a significant policy issue.

    No comparison.

    • sue

      1. Fluke is a 30 something activist that went to a school knowing it’s policy and decided to go ask congress to force others to compromise their moral and religious beliefs to pay for her & her friends birth control. Obviously she is asking others to pay for “managing her fertility”. Her noteriety is for trying to trample on others convictions & asking for handouts.
      2. Bristol is not married- and what does that have to do with anything?
      3. You don’t really think that Bristol cares to talk to Obama on the phone, do you? Speaking of hypocrisy, amazing how offended Libs get when theirs is called out.

      • Sweetpea

        Sandra Fluke is a young woman that chose to attend a religious school (that happens to be very prestigious), true. The school REQUIRES her to purchase health insurance, but does not cover contraception. She simply testified that it was her belief that they should. This is a valid policy argument. Are you suggesting that she deserved to be called a prostitute, and asked “where did she get her birth control in sixth grade?” To be berated and attacked and slandered for three straight days and nine straight hours? Bristol is just trying to piggyback on that publicity, and it’s really quite shameless.

      • Mongcon

        Mother Teresa and Martin Luther were “activists” as well. Sorry, you’re right, Bristol is not married. She portrayed the father of her child and childhood sweetheart as a rapist. I stand corrected.

        I don’t know if Bristol really cares to talk to Obama. I can only take her at her word. Or are you saying her word is unreliable?

        I’m more bemused than offended, I assure you. And what makes you think I’m a “Lib”?

        • Sweetpea

          And from many, many accounts, the story she told in her book of losing her virginity was a complete lie.

          • Sue

    You are turning into quite the woman. When I watched Greta last night and heard about your blog I started clapping and cheering! Good for you! There are a lot of people that owe your family an apology…but the fact that Obama is so one-sided shows his bias and political game. ((hugs)) to you and yours.

  • Lakerfanalways

    You know why the left hates you and your family Bristol, because your HAPPY..they have tried for almost 4 years now to destroy your family..The left loves to pretend that they are SO much smarter then us, really, if they are SO smart how come they can’t have an honest debate with us about the issues? They can’t, instead they resort to name calling, disgusting names, and death threats. That is all they can do, they wake up everyday wondering what can they do to destroy your family..DESTROY being the key word. I don’t want to destroy Obama, or Pelosi, or Reid, I just want them out of office. But the far left, they want to destroy your family and it drives them nuts that everyday your Mom and your family are more and more popular and they hate it, drives them bananas.
    They hate Trig because most leftists have had abortions sometime in their life and when they look at Trig, they see the baby that they aborted and that drives them nuts too. Trig is a beautiful little boy, God Bless that child, but when the left sees him, they see a child that should have been murdered, disgusting isn’t it?
    The more they hate you, the more I and millions of others will continue to support you. The left is all about hate, that is all they know, just keep your head high, they are the ones without souls, your family is proof that you can go through emotional hell and still live through it. Your an inspiration!

      “…most leftists have had abortions sometime in their life and when they look at Trig, they see the baby that they aborted and that drives them nuts too. …when the left sees him, they see a child that should have been murdered, disgusting isn’t it?”

      • ROTFLMAO GMAFB

        “Most leftists have had abortions?”

        Really? Wow!

        Using that “logic,” I guess it’s safe to say that most right wingers got drunk and pregnant as teens, which is why most are now bad parents and woefully ignorant flaming hypocrites who have never read a word of the Bible yet quote it incessantly despite their inability to practice what they preach. 8-)

        • Patriot

          Sweetpea and ROTFLMAO I’m afraid logic is wasted here. From what I have read so far it appears that the majority of Bristol’s 1700 favorable responses are from women who are christians but also became pregnant when they were teenagers and didn’t marry the father. And for this Bristol is told she is a great American. LOL!

  • John Rebeaud

    Bristol, the thing you must always keep in mind is whom you’re dealing with. Liberal’s can never admit when they’re wrong. They only choose to point thr finger when the other guy is wrong. Rush screwed up. He was absolutely wrong in saying that about that young woman. He apologized . Bill Moron on the other hand is a complete idiot. He’s not even smart enough to know he’s wrong anyway.

    Keep your head up. Raise your son to be the best he can be, no matter what that is.Stay positive, and let the haters hate.

    • Patriot

      Really John liberals can never admit when they are wrong?

          See the most shocking part of this entire story for me is that Rush isn’t considered a comedian?

          I just can’t believe the Palins are still in the media spotlight. If they would get out of politics and go into movie production or PR relations.. Palin obliterated McCains presidental election and yet still managed to gain so much post-election attention. It’s simply amazing. Are we sure she isn’t a comedian too??? Just saying..

  • Jeffrey V Wojtowicz

    I’m guessing you are really busy and can not answer this e-mail. Don’t let them get to you, I had a stroke 11 years ago and I’m your parents age and now retired from the Postal Service. I do stuff that has to do with wildlife in my free time and have learn a lot about how nature works and what to fear in the woods I have had run in with deer and elk in Yellowstone and never had an issue with the bears or wolves. I work on a project on Isle Royale that studies wolves and moose and how they kinda need each other to survive. The man who runs the project I got to know and has a great amount of knowledge about why prey needs predators to stay healthy. The elk around Yellowstone are really wise now and the hunter are not happy about that. The first time I was out there in 1997 the elk where not that hard to find and the last time I was out there 2007 we had to really look for them in the Lamar Valley. It makes me laugh how the left thinks the right is not for the environment, but ask them who sign the endangered species act and they do not know. Richard Nixon did. and we have to thank him for that. Bristol don’t let them get to you, “Keep Happy” and all us good people will come out ahead in Gods eyes. Sending you and yours a God Bless and we will win this fall. Jeffrey V Wojtowicz.

        • Sweetpea

          It’s sad, yes. About as sad as Sarah Palin challenging the President of the United States to a debate when she doesn’t realize that Africa is a continent, or that Paul Revere wasn’t warning the British.

  • sandra lee

    Bill Maher and Barack Obama better enjoy their lives because they will not enjoy what awaits them in eternity. Such vile, vitriolic, unabashed hatred springs from totally reprobate minds and completely hardened hearts.

    If they allow the Holy Spirit to touch them and melt them, and they lay their sins at Jesus’ feet, asking His forgiveness, you and your family will receive heartfelt apologies.

    If not, you will take no joy in their unredeemed fate. Pray for them.

    Yes there is definately a double standard going on, how is it not obvious? It is obvious, just justified by those who practice the double standards. Why hasnt Bristol recieved a phone call from Obama? Does he pick and choose to make himself look good? Ummm, another obvious one, Why h*ll yeah he does. Supporters of his, most anyways, are starting to concern and worry me. Ive never seen such discrimination, negativity, judging and targeting from a group of fanatics in my entire life! Yes, hypocrits come from all sides, evil does too, but again, after many months of observations online offline, Liberals win the hate and blame game. they love tit for tats, they love screaming, dont step on my rights, while their stomping on others. They are for rights and freedoms, But only if it benefits them and its their rights and freedoms, only theirs. Otherwise, if you dont jump on their ship, follow the flock, you will be targeted. God is needed in this country morethan ever, good versus evil! thumbs up to you Bristol for your respectful, tasteful letter to Obama. But I doubt you will get a response, Classy versus Trashy. Bill Maher? Yes, hide behind the comedian title, a million bucks donation for Obama? Yep, typical biased loud mouth liberal…. no doubt about it. Im so glad I can think for myself, and not be easily brainwashed!

          One wonders how you managed to compose the comment you did above with your empty head stuck so far up your ass.

  • Carolyn

    We are so proud of you…

    • Patriot

      Why Carolyn? What in earth did she do that made all of you adore her so much? Did she enlist and fight for our freedom? Did she testify in congress for women’s rights? Did she go to college and become a doctor so she could save lives? I swear republicans have the worst self-esteem of any creature on earth. Anyone of you who shows the slightest bit of indignance (whether justified or not) is immediately risen up and hailed as a patriot and great American. Its embarrassing. What is stunting your development as a human being? Clearly religious dogma has a lot to do with it..but theres got to be more to it than that.

      • Gilly Mac

        Amen. Worshiping and adoring the Palin Family is bizarre by just about any measure.

  • Jenn

    Bristol, you and your family are really strong to have to read or hear things so negative. Keep doing what you’re doing and stay strong. The enemy will always attack when you are doing the right things. You have a good head on your shoulders despite what people say. People talk trash cause they are jealous of you, want to be you or are intimidated by you. With all the negative comments, looks like you’re really getting to them. GREAT JOB!!! =) GOD BLESS YOU AND YOUR FAMILY!

  • Rita

    Bristol there are alot of sick people out there, and all they have time to do is hurt other people with their fowl mouths.
    I think you have wonderful family. Your son and brother are so cute, how could you not love them. Keep your chin up. You and your family are special…..

  • bellagrazi

    I was just on the Fox News website. “Bristol Palin awaits Obama’s call” is the number one story Trending In Politics! Awesome!

    http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2012/03/20/bristol-awaits-obamas-call-shoulder/

    • Leigh Ann

      Well, of course it is…on Fox News! Fox Newsers love the Palin family. Doesn’t prove a thing. Sarah Palin’s nationwide popularity numbers are still in the toilet. Hopefully Bristol will make her own way in the world and become the successful young woman that even many Democrats hope she’ll be.

    • LMA

      Just on the Fox News site? Why am I not surprised…

  • ChrissyR

    Like you, I’m in my early twenties and it’s so refreshing to hear other young conservative women’s voices out there, especially on these issues. I honestly couldn’t think of a better person to be our spokeswoman. :)
    You have a beautiful family and you’ve been blessed with an incredible support system. As the great Ronald Reagan said, “the family has always been the cornerstone of American society. Our families nurture, preserve, and pass on to each succeeding generation the values we share and cherish, values that are the foundation of our freedoms.” So, keep it up! We need you!
    Stay strong and I look forward to reading more of your blog!

  • Lori

    I do admire you Bristol. And I have always admired your mom. I’m not politically savy but she just makes sense to me.
    Stay strong Bristol! You are blessed.

    • Leigh Ann

      “I’m not politically savvy…” And that’s why Sarah Palin makes sense to you.

      • Patriot

        LOL Leigh Ann.

  • http://postrepublica.wordpress.com NWBill

    Great response, B. Your brother is lucky to have you as a sister, and your child is very lucky to be blessed with you as a mom. Keep on keepin’ on …. you’re great!

  • Linette Fink

    That is a really cute picture of your brother. Sending much love your way I know your mom is proud of you. Best wishes for you and your family. When people say negative things about you and your family just look at the source, give them no notice and move on.

  • Sam

    Guess what… there are idiots on either side of the political ideology fence. Hannity highlights college-aged liberal ignoramuses on his show during election years with a “Man on the Street” segment, and Maher and his ilk highlight… well pretty much any Republican.

    I am not particularly keen on anybody calling you or your mother undeserved names, like “twat,” “cunt,” “whore,” or “floozy.” That’s all intellectually pointless. What does matter is that your mother crashed into the public forum four years ago, and there is no doubt in any thinking, educated person’s mind that she has no business doing anything aside from selling underwear at Victoria’s Secret. She has shown herself to be an opportunist, and one that will stomp others in the mud to get ahead (such events during her governorship in Alaska are well-documented). She is obviously ignorant of domestic and international affairs, which should immediately disqualify her from public office… but everyone knows that holding office has little to do with your abilities as a leader or diplomat, and everything to do with how popular you can make yourself. Sarah Palin is simply a caricature of the ignorance that typifies politicians in this country. And to say she’s among the worst of the worst is not a trivial thing… she is a laughing stock in the entire civilized world. Go ahead and drop in at a secular university and just ask any random person.. student or professor, and you will see that their impression of her is more than just unfavorable. Try asking someone in Europe… if they have heard of her, I can almost guarantee they will shake their heads in contempt. And not because of the so-called “left wing media’s” portrayal of her. No, people think she’s stupid because of what she actually says. I was behind your mother all the way… from what little I knew about her fiscally conservative reputation. But then she opened her mouth. And it was bad… but it got worse… because she opened it again, and again, and again… until I wanted to stuff something in it to stop her making a fool of herself and her family.
    This is not misguided hatred. This is what intelligent people really think of her. It has nothing to do with you.

    Political commentators aside… you cannot escape the bald-faced fact that your mother is a joke to the civilized secular world. In Germany, for example, they would be completely unable to wrap their heads around the fact that a woman who had a witch doctor perform an exorcism on her actually ran for one of the highest offices in the most powerful country in the world.

    The US scares other countries. People like your mother, Rick Santorum, Herman Cain, Michele Bachmann, Christine O’Donnell, Rick Perry, Glenn Beck, Rush Limbaugh, and Bill O’Reilly are the reasons why… They look at a crazy person like Sarah Palin and think “Apocalypse Now.”

    • Daewen

      Ignorance? They shoved the “right words” down Sarah Palin’s throat and then left her to defend herself. John McCain never once stood up to the words hurled – like a real hero and a gentleman would have done. However, don’t bash a daughter for what her mother may or may not have done. This is not the place. Children are not responsible for their parents and parents are not responsible for what their adult children do. Leave it at that.

    • Sue

      Oh- brother, I know people from other countries who are crazy about Gov. Palin. The “intellegent” people that you speak of are liberals. By the way, she did an excellent job in Alaska.Know of any other governors who had 80% approval ratings. For someone who you say doesn’t know aanything, she sure got a lot done.As far as the “witch doctor” stuff, boy you realy have drunk the liberal kool-aid haven’t you.

      • Sweetpea

        Tell us what her approval rating is now, Sue.

    • Patriot

      Sam this statement by you above “Sarah Palin is simply a caricature of the ignorance that typifies politicians in this country.” is one of the best things I have read today. Thank you.

  • Daewen

    Bristol, keep your head held high. I am praying for you and for the country of scorners that they will one day realize the error of their ways. But for the meantime, know there are people who love you and will back you up no matter what.

  • Mary

    We love your family ! Wouldn’t have missed one of you Alaska shows. Loved them all. Your mom is a wonderful person and so are you! Your little brother is a special gift from our Heavenly Father! He would not have come into your family is your family was not the best family for him to be a part of . Remember, families can be together forever , thru Heavenly Fathers plan.
    Don’t listen to the negatives… You are loved and admired. Stay strong an give your mom a hug from me…. Hugs…Mary

  • Todd

    I’m sure your family is proud of you for standing up for them, and we should all be proud of you for standing up for conservative values. The only way for the diabolical left to win is if decent-minded Americans remain silent. Keep talking, keep writing, these are your weapons against the tyrannical liberal establishment. Take care.

  • http://SarahPalinInformationBlog Dr. Fay

    Bristol, we are all so proud of you for what you have accomplished and for the stands that you have taken. Keep up the good work! And may the Lord ever be with you and all your family, with His angels guarding about you.

    I think this article may give some insight into at least one of the reasons behind those comments in Category 1:

    http://musingsofanoldpastor.blogspot.com/2008/11/election-2008-prophecy.html

    I think there is a spiritual component to the attacks on your family. Note what Pastor Foss said in October of 2008:

    “I had a vision earlier this year. I saw Barack Obama in this vision. He was speaking to a large crowd and being broadcast on television. He was speaking incredible words of unity, peace, and bringing all sides together; the words were elegant, the words were comforting, and the words were inspiring.

    But while he was speaking I saw all a powerful spirit of violence coming out of his spirit feeding into the spirits of those that were hearing him. That spirit of violence was directed at anybody who opposed what he was saying. Those who heard his words and received it had the spirit of violence being implanted inside of them. It was a rage like I have not seen before.

    It was the rage that would be unleashed against those who oppose and stand in the way of Barack Obama’s agenda. We are already seeing the beginnings of this spirit manifested here in America. The vicious attacks against Sarah Palin have been unlike anything we have ever seen before. The sheer hate for this woman from people who knew nothing about her, and who claim to stand up and protect the little people, and women, has been shocking.

    We now see it with Joe the plumber. These people who are under the influence of this demon spirit of rage desire to completely destroy this man because he dared to question Barack Obama. In fact it wasn’t just the question; it was because Barack Obama revealed his true agenda that Joe the plumber became a threat. So the supporters of Barack Obama who had been fed and affected by the spirit of violence went into full swing to destroy a fellow citizen; the very kind of person that Barack Obama has been speaking about in his eloquent speeches, saying how he is the only candidate fighting for them.

    I want to put this deep in your spirit. I am speaking as a prophet. The words I’m about to tell you are “thus saith the Lord”. If Barack Obama is elected, the attacks against free speech, against those who believe differently than he does, and the systematic use of the government and laws to silence the voice of fundamental Christians will be unlike anything ever seen in this nation before. ”

    But we know that He that is within us is greater than he that is in the world.

    • Leigh Ann

      Now, this is what Bristol is talking about. These words are full of accusation and false witness. Bristol wants President Obama to be a protector of all women, and I’m sure she’s ready to reciprocate: Bristol wants everyone to know that the evil words from both sides has to stop. Right, Bristol?

      • ROTFLMAO GMAFB

        If Bristol really cared about protecting all women, she’d have stood up for Sandra Fluke instead of avoiding Limbaugh’s remarks and painting herself as the victim.

        • Gwen

          Exactly. Has Bristol taken birth control for whatever reason? Cramps, perhaps? Acne? A lot of young women go on bc pills for reasons other than the prevention of unwanted pregnancies. That is what Sandra Fluke was testifying about. Rush called her terrible names and said that she should put videos of her having sex on the internet. WTF? Why hasn’t that outraged anyone with daughters who have taken bc for the reasons mentioned above?

        • Gilly Mac

          She would have also come to the defense of Meghan McCain when Glenn Beck pretended to throw up at the sight of her naked on the radio. But because Bristol doesn’t like Meghan McCain, you heard nothing.

          • ROTFLMAO GMAFB

            I just read Bristol said she felt like she had to “watch her back” around Meghan McCain. That’s a rather ironic statement coming from someone whose mother is so fond of guns.

            Bristol apparently also complained about the McCains’ Louis Vuitton luggage, but it seems she saw no problem with her mother spending $150,000 on clothes and accessories courtesy of the RNC during the 2008 campaign.

            Hypocrisy abounds!

  • Pat Hickey

    I am proud of every young woman out there who is not afraid of standing up for herself. We must continue to DEMAND respect and the shameful treatment of conservative women must be stopped. We truly admire your family and think your little brother is a gift from God. It is wonderful to see people like your mother try to make a difference in this world. We hope to hear more from the Palins in the years ahead. Let’s just pray we can clean out that White House soon!

  • Kim

    Bristol, you’re far more mature beyond your years. Your family knows how to take these lemons that are handed to you and turn them into Lemonade. Good job!! You have so many that love and support you and your family. Don’t let the haters win. Keep up what you are doing!!!
    War Eagle!!!

  • DEF

    I am proud of you and your family for standing up for what is right. You’re an inspiration and I hope your mother reconsiders running for office. This country needs someone with your family’s views.

  • Karen Cross

    God Bless you and your family Bristol. Your all loved in my family….

  • LMA

    Bristol, comments like the horrible ones directed at your family are similarly directed at the Obamas all the time. It’s not fair, no, but when everyone decides to turn the mirror away from themselves, and that includes the Palins, then no one gets the message. If you want President Obama to speak up for you (again…), then why don’t you start? Why don’t you make a bold and unexpected move and ask Rush Limbaugh to stop calling Mrs. Obama “Moochelle”? Why don’t you ask your mom to stop accusing President Obama of having terrorist associations? Why don’t you encourage your mother’s worshippers to stop calling President Obama a Muslim and not a citizen? If we libs are so awful…then by all means, show us how it’s done.

    I wish you the best, and I’ll be checking back in to see if you get the “kinder” and “gentler” conversation started. Meanwhile, President Obama, I’m sure, will be tending to matters of greater consequence.

    • Sweetpea

      Amen. The amount of attention these Palin’s want on themselves at all times is just about sociopathic.

    • Sue

      Um maybe because Obama does have terrorist associates? Bill Ayers ring a bell. Maybe because Mrs. Obama mooches off the tax-payers for frequent over-the top vacations. A lot different from the nasty filth thrown at the Palins. I’ve never heard any public rape jokes about the Obama’s, I’ve never heard nasty vulger sexual things said about them in public. There would be outrage, people would be fired. It happens to the Palins…. crickets.

      • Sweetpea

        BS. Just an FYI: The Obama’s pay for their own vacations, Sue. Sarah Palin, however, uses her contributions as she pleases, while she pretends she’s going to run for President so you all keep giving. So because President Obama has met Bill Ayers a few times he now has “terrorist associations?” Well then what about Todd Palin’s allegiance to the Alaskan Independence Party and their drive toward succession? That’s okay, though right? I have heard ENORMOUS amounts of vile things said about President Obama and his family. Even the Arizona Tea Partiers meet his plane with armed with guns! Please spare us all the supposed Palin victimhood.

        • LMA

          Really, Sue, get over the “terrorist associations” BS. Get over the “Mrs. Obama spends our tax money on vacations” BS. She was an accomplished lawyer before becoming First Lady. And please spare me the “the stuff hurled at the Palins is worse” argument. It doesn’t fly. I’m sure you wish that NOBODY said anything awful about your Blessed Sarah Palin. Hell, so do I. My point was, however, that when we ask for kind treatment, we better be prepared to give it, AND THE PALINS ARE NEVER PREPARED TO GIVE IT.

          • Sweetpea

            *fistbump*

      • Angela

        Truer words were never said, Sue. Thank you.

      • Jay

        Nope just regular old vulgar stuff said about them. Nothing sexual.

      • LMA

        Sue, are you familiar with Free Republic? Here’s what commentors said about Malia Obama in 2009: “a typical street whore…ghetto street trash…Wonder when she’ll get her first abortion?” Google it.

        Sorry, no rape jokes, though. So I guess you’re right — you folks are better.

        • Gwen

          Just read the comment section under any story on Fox re: President Obama. The things people say about he and his family are disgusting. The difference is, the Obamas are mature and well centered. They don’t harp on the people who hate them and say those things; although Michelle had a difficult time early on. She asked in one interview: “Why do people hate us so much?” That was during the campaign, when the death threats against her husband surged to an all time high.

  • Sweetpea

    Obama already came to Bristol’s defense in 2008:

    “I have heard some of the news on this and so let me be as clear as possible. I have said before and I will repeat again, I think people’s families are off limits, and people’s children are especially off limits. This shouldn’t be part of our politics, it has no relevance to governor Palin’s performance as a governor or her potential performance as a vice president. And so I would strongly urge people to back off these kinds of stories. You know my mother had me when she was 18. And how family deals with issues and teenage children that shouldn’t be the topic of our politics and I hope that anybody who is supporting me understands that is off limits.” ~ President Barack Obama

    • Sweetpea

      So pardon the LEADER OF THE FREE WORLD if he doesn’t have time, yet again, to come to your defense. You really are an embarrassment, Bristol. Get a clue.

  • Gina

    Bristol,

    You are a wonderful mother, daughter, sister and woman in general! Your Mom must be so proud of you! Don’t ever let the crazy left get you down. We have your back and your whole family’s backs!

  • Sue

    By the way, Trig is adorable. Anyone who hates on him is a lost soul, and will undoubtably pay for being so evil. God doesn’t look kindly on those who offend his little ones.

    • Sweetpea

      Of course Trig is adorable. But what does he have to do with anything Bristol is saying, and why does she keep focusing attention on him?

      • LMA

        Exactly. Notice how President Obama and the First Lady just don’t acknowledge all the hatred directed at them? That’s the best way to make it go away. When do you think the Palins will learn that lesson? It seems awfully difficult for them to turn the other cheek. I’ll bet they sure can preach about it, though!

        • Sweetpea

          That’s because being a self-righteous victim is their favorite thing.

        • Gwen

          Because they can’t make money by ignoring the trash talk. By getting down in the dirt with their “haters,” and drawing attention to it, they make a living. Her mother made a pac ad on Breitbart’s death to rake in some cash.

          They whine about the media but without that attention, they’d be broke.

          • LMA

            “They whine about the media but without that attention, they’d be broke.”

            Thank you!

          • Patriot

            No Thank you LMA!

  • Nate Whilk

    Dear Ms. Palin,

    I think you could’ve mentioned one specific point: David Letterman’s “joke”. You should’ve gotten Obama’s call right then. Obama didn’t say anything about how Letterman should think how he’d like it if it was about one of HIS daughters.

    A detractor wrote, “Limbaugh actually represents the Republican Party. They pay him. ”

    Present the proof.

  • Carla Larson

    And the Dem’s claim they’re not haters…you have a lovely family…Obama lovers just hate the fact that you are so down to earth and can communicate with the public in away that relates our feelings, like your Mother I feel we could sit down at the table for coffee and still be chatting at midnight. Don’t let the evil people break your spirit. Evil pays for their bad deeds eventualy, either on earth or by God when the leave this earth…stay strong and keep talking..

    • Gwen

      I’m not an “Obama lover” but I am a Democrat, and I don’t hate the Palins because they are so “down to earth.” I detest BS and phoniness even on my own side of the political aisle.

      I have to admit, just the fact that she is allowing adverse opinions to be posted to this blog is refreshing. I can’t help but wonder if it’s part of a stunt but, time will tell.

  • falling

    Bristol, I have so much admiration for you and your family. You have withstood so much for no reason other than your mother stepped up to serve her country when asked. I will forever believe that if she had been at the top of the ticket or been allowed to speak the truth, things would have turned out much differently. I volunteered at my local McCain headquarters and saw first hand the change your mother made to the campaign. And the fear she put into the hearts of the Obama machine! Keep telling it like it is…just as your mother does.

  • Eiri Cummings

    Whatever, hypocrite. Has your mother returned all the hundreds of thousands of dollars she received spinning fantasies for her deluded Tea Party fan base about the presidential run she never even intended to make?

    Still, gotta love your plan to reach for relevancy and extend that 15 minutes of tabloid fame. Come back when you can spout a political opinion that ISN’T drafted for you by your family’s PR team of spin doctors.

    • SpecialNeedsMom

      Woot!

    • TCN

      Sweetie: I bet she will when Obama returns all his overseas illegal donations from 2008. Right about then.

      • Sweetpea

        LOL. You right wingers just make crap up about the President. Lying is okay for you. We get it.

  • Jay

    Get over yourself. Don’t compare yourself to someone testifying on Capitol hill. Your mother either. The vile she herself has constantly spit out about others should be your concern. The POTUS owes you nothing. Do something politically worthwhile, get called a slut for it, and then, maybe you can begin to compare yourself to Sandra Fluke. Oh, and I don’t fit under any of the three categories you have listed. I don’t hate you, I don’t love you, and I too think Bill Maher is more than a simple comedian.

    • TCN

      Ms. Fluke did not testify at anything other than a media opportunity. She was not invited nor did she speak at any official hearing, grand jury or other legal proceeding. You might consider getting the facts straight before you start slinging rocks from that glass house of yours. And what, exactly, is politically worthwhile about asking 1/4 of this country to violate their religious beliefs, protected by the Constitution, so that a failed grad student can do the nasty without getting knocked up? Once again, think a bit before you answer.

      • Sweetpea

        You are a pig, TCN. How is being a law student a “failed grad student?” Why is working on behalf of the rights of all women so offensive to you conservatives? And she was invited by the Democratic caucus. What do you think, she just jaunted on down to the Capitol for kicks? Who is she asking to violate their religious beliefs? It’s the health insurance SHE pays for! And why is sex “nasty?” Just an FYI – she never discussed her sex life. She talked about the medical need for contraceptives. And you just got owned.

        • Gwen

          “Why is working on behalf of the rights of all women so offensive to you conservatives? ”

          Because they’ve been told they should be offended. As much as it kills me to say it, Ann Coulter had a good point recently.

  • jim

    Bristol – you are truely loved, by your family and fans. I say this in a good way.. the apple did not fall far from the tree with you and your mother. I respect you both and hope your mother decides to run for president.. and you as her VP. that would be so cool. your boyfriend is one lucky guy luv ya all

    • Patriot

      I agree jim. It would wonderful (and i think divinely inspired) if the GOP nominated Sarah Palin as the candidate for President and she chose her daughter Bristol as her running mate. Please God…please let this happen.

  • http://rogerupton.wordpress.com Roger

    I agree that there is a double standard in our country. No man (or woman) should be allowed to communicate in a way that you wouldn’t communicate with the stranger sitting next to you in a restaurant.

    The reality is Bill Maher and Rush Limbaugh are cut from the exact same cloth, though they come from different sides of the political spectrum.

    Both are are tasteless and offensive, not real men, and who pander to the far side of each one’s respective political preference.

    Whether the president steps in is unimportant, and I realize Bristol is being somewhat tongue-in-cheek with her post, it’s past time for citizens to start holding one another accountable.

  • Jon Thom

    Well written. The double standard illustrated perfectly.

  • sherry

    Bristol pay the low life’s nothing that talk about your family in such a manner. Your brother is adorable and may the good Lord have mercy on them for they have alot to pay for. JUST HATRED. IN THEIR HEART. I love you and your family so just keep on keeping on!!

  • http://talkwisdom.blogspot.com/ Christinewjc

    Gilly Mac wrote, “Everyone is entitled to their opinions.”

    Let me share my opinion about everything else you wrote in your comment “Gilly.”

    You pretend to know the motivation behind Bristol’s exclamation that her post “went viral.” Is it possible that she was happy that her message went further than this blog so that it will help educate more and more people about this particular issue? Claiming that Bristol’s outrage is “fake” looks like your attempt to just demean her views. Your nasty “pimp” comment is only designed to hurt her. My guess? Your silly accusations absolutely fall flat.

    Gilly Mac wrote, “Certainly they are beautiful kids and nobody with a heart would say anything negative about them, but that doesn’t mean you need to keep bringing them up.”

    I agree with you that “anyone with a heart would not say anything negative about them.” But we live in the real world. Children who are verbally abused and made fun of – for whatever reason – NEED to be brought to the attention of society at large for the simple reason that they NEED DEFENDING.

    I don’t have a disabled child, but I worked with a family who had a severely disabled child (back when I was in high school). There was a technique called “patterning” back then which was an experiment to help the child regain motor skills. Unfortunately, it didn’t work. I heard only a few years later that cute, drooling, smiling, little disabled boy died. It broke my heart. Those few weeks of contact with him and his family changed my heart forever.

    So you see, Gilly Mac, there is a purpose involved here with Bristol’s attempt to bring awareness on several issues…including her Downs Syndrome little brother, her teenage pregnancy and birth, and her advocacy against the terrible and degrading misogynist “jokes” that Bill Maher spews. Calling out Obama on his former claim that children of political persons should be “off limits” (except if the child is from a conservative or Republican family) is a great point to make. It shows the blaring hypocrisy that often lives in the leftists of this nation. It is very unfortunate.

    I congratulate Bristol for having the courage to speak her mind on this and other issues. Keep up the great work young lady and don’t ever let they naysayers get you down.

    For someone like you, “Gilly Mac,” to lecture her on what she should and should not say is hypocritical and demonstrates that you have a liberal leftist mindset that wants to shut out the free speech efforts of those with whom you disagree.

    • Gilly Mac

      LOL. Bristol has the right to speak, just as I have the right to disagree. They are BOTH our free speech rights. Sadly, Bristol is certainly not writing these, so we’re all just playing into Sarah Palin’s ego. The Palin’s love to attack people, and then when called on it, play the victim (like putting gun sights on Gabrielle Giffords back, and then when she is shot and nearly killed, make a self-righteous video about POOR YOU). Here, Bristol seems content to use her son and disabled brother to gain some sort of sympathy for herself. The President has defended the Palin children in the past. However, it is not his problem if they keep trying to be pseudo celebrities at ever turn. When conservatives start condemning the incredible amount of hatefulness and bigotry coming from “their side,” then they’ll have a moral leg to stand on. Instead, they whine, and point to Bill Maher and yell, “He said mean stuff, too!!!” Please spare us. People might take the Palin’s seriously if Sarah Palin wasn’t responsible for drumming up so much hate toward the President that his daughters received death threats and his wife cried. Truly disgusting behavior from the lot of you, and not surprisingly, no one acting in accordance with their supposed Christian faith.

      • Patriot

        Amen Gilly!

      • http://talkwisdom.blogspot.com/ Christinewjc

        gilly mac,

        Thanks for coming back and proving my point with your latest diatribe. You have just added even more lies (e.g. the Gabrielle Giffords whopper) to your previous hate filled rant. I suggest that you stop getting your brainwashing propaganda points from places like “Media Matters.” The ugliness that you continue to spew only makes you look mean, foolish, pathetic, bigoted, sad and un-informed about the real world.

        • Gilly Mac

          LMAO! What did I say that was untrue about the Gabrielle Giffords tragedy? What are you disputing, exactly? I am only stating the truth, and you don’t like it. Not my problem.

          And Bristol – stop having plastic surgery, exposing your son to publicity, and trying to be a celebrity. Take all that money you’re making and get an education, and move on to a life of substance.

    They hate you because they know you are right. They are evil.

  • Teri McRae

    Bristol, I think you are doing a great job!! You are so young, and have to deal with things that most adults haven’t really had to, to the extent that you have. You and your family have a lot of prayers covering you!! You are exactly right…..you are dealing with a lot of evil out there. It is so sad that those people including, Bill Maher are so hateful. I’ve always heard hurting people….hurt people. I pray that God will open there eyes and see what love really is. Your brother is so very precious as the rest of your family. Stay strong STAND!! God bless you and your family. Hopefully someday we can meet you and your wonderful family…if not here on earth….in heaven! Blessing, McRae’s

  • Jan

    What an adorable photo of Trigg. You see innocent love and happiness in his face. He is a blessing to the world. Only cowards like Maher cannot see that. Keep speaking up, Bristol.

  • Allison

    Bristol,
    Wow! You must be hitting a nerve with those haters. Their posts are so typical of the name-calling (because they don’t have logical arguments for their positions), illogical, narrow-minded, “tolerant” types. Look up, keep shining your light and stay strong. :)

    • Patriot

      Why are conservatives so obsessed with shining lights? Do you all have cataracts?

  • Joseph Peterson

    Bristol,
    I am proud of you. I don’t know you or have a right to feel that way but I can’t help myself. You give me hope that there are young people who have an understanding of love and grace. Please give your son and brother a hug for me. They will grow into strong young men with the love you and your family provide them.

  • Pamela Masterson

    Bristol, Your doing a great job, your child is beautiful and so are you. I’v like your Mom from the first time she step out on the stage. Wow, Sarah Palin truly is special. Bristol keep up your good work and don’t let a few dead beat’s and the stupid things they say get to you. Your a winner, be proud of yourself. Reach out go forward their are more good people than bad. God Bless and your family.

    Blessings

  • Kristi

    Go Bristol!!!

    I have found over the years that ultra liberals are the most mean-spirited closed-minded people on the planet. I don’t watch Bill Maher, so I had no idea what had been said about your family over the years. I was stunned. Good thing I turned off my tv a couple of years ago.

    I think your brother is the sweetest little peanut and I applaud you for having the courage to stand in the spotlight and be ridiculed by so many idiots. Being a teen mom is not an easy route no matter who your family is or how much support you have. And as a woman, you are the one with the obvious pregnant belly and then the baby. No man will ever understand that. God bless you and your family!

  • Jennifer Hendrick

    I havent followed closely to you or your mom lately but from all I saw during their election run, you are one strong woman for all you continue to do. It is unfortunate that people have the ability to posses this kind of hatred in their hearts to not only viciously target you, but your younger sibling and son as well. This isnt a problem in politics, its a problem with society. The ethical and moral values are no longer present in the human race, but strong willed women like yourself continue to give me faith that our country will be alright. You are right about there being a double standard. Comedian or not(i wouldnt call him that, tasteless is more like it since when is bullying funny?) people need to be held more accountable not only for their actions but their words as well. Yes, I believe in the First Amendment but there is always that line some seem to cross. If myself or any other “average” citizen were to make tasteless comments of this nature we wouldn’t be able to hide behind our claim of being a “comedian.” Keep your head up and remember they only throw rocks at the ones who shine; )

    OMGosh, he is too cute.. So glad God gave him to your family.. “HE” only chooses people HE knows will love them unconditionally and take good care of him. Just tell all the haters to go watch Maher. LOL… I have never, ever watched his show and quite frankly can’t understand why or how he still has a ?show? if that is what you want to call it. I heard he averages three viewers per night???? Oh well.. Keep your head up Sweetie.. You have so many people pulling for you and your family…

    Thank you for speaking up. All the best to you and your lovely family!

  • Charlyn Witcher

    I’m in the “I love you” category. :-) Bristol, the same apologies demanded by Obama of Rush L. SHOULD HAVE BEEN paid to you for the unforgivable things that have been said. You are an amazing young woman who believes in standing up for what is right! Double standards are often used by immoral people to make their demented points of view seem logical. Keep on keeping on. God is with you! Both your son and your little brother are PRECIOUS!!! I, for one, am ashamed that anyone in America has been so callous and cruel to have attacked your family in such horrific ways. It’s part of the territory that comes with being in the political spotlight, I guess, but it is inexcusable, regardless.

  • Donna Seele

    Stand up to the scumbags,Bristol. We love your family and pray that your Mother will fight for us in whatever capacity. (But I still voted for her in our Primary!)

  • Misty

    Love the pic of Trig!

    What happened was also mentioned on National Review Online and Rick Perry tweeted about it too!

    That’s why I’ve always supported you and Sarah. Keep up the good fight!

  • Randy

    Thank you for speaking up! I’ll back you up anyday, anytime, anyplace.

  • LloydRMc

    Bristol,
    Your calm demeanor in the presence of such vile hatred is a breath of fresh air.

    1,700 or so messages of support, eh? Yes, it is too bad that conservatives and Republicans are waging a “war on women”, isn’t it.

    Yes, it’s the liberals who spew much of the vile filth in what passes for discourse on the Internet nowadays. I have noticed that their brand of logic fails them early, and then they go straight for ad hominem attacks.

    Keep up the good work, and please tell your mother for me that I was sorry to hear she wasn’t running, and I trust her instincts and judgement, and I think she is doing a splendid job.

  • Juli

    Bristol you just say what ever is on your mind. We are all Brietbarts now wellcome to citizen journalism. I love the photo of your brother he is so darn cute. By the way they are calling it Palin Power, talk about viral, speak to the truth and never stop. We are right here with you and your Family to take on those who would bear false witness and walk the path of rightness.

  • Bullseye

    Congrarulations! You got exactly the attention you so desperately crave. Of course you too no responsibility for any of the hateful names your family has called people. Nope it’s all about exposure and attention with the palins. Your mother must be very jealous…I’m sure she will be along shortly to try and still the spotlight from you. Better grizzly up girl!

    • izzy

      Bullseye… get lost.

    • Lynda Parker

      Wer did u git yur skoolin Bulzeye? Becuz i bet sheel be reely jelose of that! (Clearly you have much to learn. I suspect the Palin gals will get a “grizzly” chuckle out of your comment – much like the rest of us!)

      • Bullseye

        Guess I should have transferred to community college after community college like mamma grizzly did so I would be smart like she is. But u r right the palins are chuckling…all the way to the bank because idiots like you support them. Why do conservative Christians have such chips on their shoulders? You should talk to your religious leaders about you’re persecution complex.

        • Lynda Parker

          Bullseye: You’re cute when your frustered :) That momma grizzly has more smarts in one paw than you do in your entire … administration. I was just wondering … why are you following an idiot, conservative, christian blog anyways? Shouldn’t you be watching Bill Maher right now?

          • Bullseye

            Not frustrated at all…just trying to dumb myself down by misspelling words and adding unnecessary r’s so the ‘folk’ here will be able to understand me.

            But you are right. I’m sure Sarah Palin with her BS from the esteemed (that’s a fancy word that means well respected) University of IDAHO (lol) has more knowledge in her crusty paw than my guy from Harvard.

            Oh I noticed you didn’t answer my questions about why Christians feel like everyone is out to get them. Go deep Lynda…what happened in your past that caused you to be so angry and sad…constantly seeking approval and being confused by the modern world around you. Crap I haven’t used any rrrr’s yet…grrrrrr. Better?

            Bill Maher comes on Friday nights.

          • L3

            Mama Grizzly sure did show her smarts when she told Katie Couric what she read, oh, and when she named her favorite Supreme Court Cases….crickets. Exposure and celebrity can lead to great wealth but it can never be confused with hard work and intelligence.

          • Lynda Parker

            Like I said Bullseye … So cute!!!

      Keep your Grr face on girl. Love your spirit and strength. Know that many out here pray for you and your family and that God keeps you all Safe!

    Well done! I’m very proud of you. I’m right there with your family. We stand together. I hate what is being said and it brings tears to my eyes…not just for your family…but for all American’s who feel as you/we do and are working so hard to do the right thing only to be torn down by hatred.

  • Betty Laluna

    Dear Bristol, it appears President Barak Obama has already come to your defense in 2008:

    “I have heard some of the news on this and so let me be as clear as possible. I have said before and I will repeat again, I think people’s families are off limits, and people’s children are especially off limits. This shouldn’t be part of our politics, it has no relevance to governor Palin’s performance as a governor or her potential performance as a vice president. And so I would strongly urge people to back off these kinds of stories. You know my mother had me when she was 18. And how family deals with issues and teenage children that shouldn’t be the topic of our politics and I hope that anybody who is supporting me understands that is off limits.” ~Barak Obama

    Perhaps rather than divide the masses, as a young woman who has the visibility and the voice and can serve to represent the younger generation, rather than continuing to propagate divisiveness, you can find a way to bring both sides together. It is not easy…it is quite hard but if this country stands any chance it doesn’t have a chance when mindless sheeple jump on the bandwagon and camoflauge ignorance by latching on to the issue of the day by straining for a few blog view hits because said topic is ‘trending’…true character requires we dig deeper than that and face adversity. I am no fan of your mother’s however I don’t hate her. What hurt me most was witnessing her capitalizing and screaming President Obama’s middle name “Hussein” in front of a crowd she had to know was not worldy enough to see behind the barriers of hatred and racism and the crowd roared for more. It was my fear that move alone could have incited enough hate for somone to kill the man who is now our President. Politics is one thing, and I equally understand what your mother was up against fighting as a WOMAN in that arena and so for that I respect her but it is so clear she too was used by the establishment. It is my hope that you both will gain wisdom. While I understand we live in perilous times…and we might not always agree…it is time American’s stood together in peace and as WOMEN I believe we can create change – I believe my President is committed to women’s rights. It is my hope you will accept his taking a stand in 2008 which directly defended you and your mother and use wisdom and discernment in the issues you wish to raise as in my estimation given the situation you’ve been in – not unique by a long shot…these issues affect you too. Be blessed Bristol and always seek wisdom…

    • Gwen

      “It is my hope you will accept his taking a stand in 2008 which directly defended you and your mother and use wisdom and discernment in the issues you wish to raise as in my estimation given the situation you’ve been in – not unique by a long shot…these issues affect you too. ”

      It was my hope, too. Past tense. I had hoped that she would get an education so that she could provide for her son and maybe lend a younger, fresher light to our current, and even future problems.

      I’m thrilled when young Conservatives find their own paths and voices that aren’t shackled by the past. I know that Bristol isn’t thrilled with Meghan McCain and how she uses her position in life, but what about Barbara Bush? This video gave me hope for the young people of our Nation:

    Bristol,
    You and your family are amazing. Thank you for taking a stand and standing strong. You are your mother’s daughter! We love you and your family and those precious little guys: your son and your little brother.
    Never give up. We sooo need more people like you in this country and in the whole world. You are a class act.
    Love, love and love!

  • Corrine Hamilton

    You should be ashamed of yourself, asking President Obama to call you. For what, exactly? You want to tell him that you are with child again and still unwed? That’s the only thing I can think of. Besides, he’s much to busy trying to spar with these senseless Repubs and keep the nation afloat. You did that to yourself, Ms. Fluke was trying to keep herself out of “YOUR” situation. Mr. Obama has the right to call whom he choose too. Let me ask you a question, “Do you actually think that you are important?”

    • Sweetpea

      It’s really quite shameless, isn’t it? Typical Palin arrogance. However, I do feel sorry for Bristol. She certainly didn’t write these articles, and is merely being used by her mother’s political machine.

  • blackbird

    Trig is an adorable little guy, thanks Bristol for posting the photo.

    The Old Fisherman

    Our house was directly across the street from the clinic entrance of Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore. We lived downstairs and rented the upstairs rooms to out-patients at the clinic.

    One summer evening as I was fixing supper, there was a knock at the door. I opened it to see a truly awful looking man. “Why, he’s hardly taller than my eight-year-old,” I thought, as I stared at the stooped, shriveled body. But the appalling thing was his face, lopsided from swelling, red and raw, yet his voice was pleasant as he said,

    “Good evening. I’ve come to see if you’ve a room for just one night. I came for a treatment this morning from the eastern shore, and there’s no bus ’til morning.”

    He told me he’d been hunting for a room since noon but with no success, no one seemed to have a room. “I guess it’s my face… I know it looks terrible, but my doctor says with a few more treatments…”

    For a moment I hesitated, but his next words convinced me: “I could sleep in this rocking chair on the porch. My bus leaves early in the morning.”

    I told him we would find him a bed, but to rest on the porch. I went inside and finished getting supper. When we were ready, I asked the old man if he would join us.

    “No, thank you. I have plenty.” And he held up a brown paper bag.

    When I had finished the dishes, I went out on the porch to talk with him a few minutes. It didn’t take a long time to see that this old man had an oversized heart crowded into that tiny body. He told me he fished for a living to support his daughter, her five children, and her husband, who was hopelessly crippled from a back injury.

    He didn’t tell it by way of complaint; in fact, every other sentence was preface with a thanks to God for a blessing. He was grateful that no pain accompanied his disease, which was apparently a form of skin cancer. He thanked God for giving him the strength to keep going.

    At bedtime, we put a camp cot in the children’s room for him. When I got up in the morning, the bed linens were neatly folded and the little man was out on the porch. He refused breakfast, but just before he left for his bus haltingly, as if asking a great favor, he said, “Could I please come back and stay the next time I have a treatment? I won’t put you out a bit. I can sleep fine in a chair.” He paused a moment and then added, “Your children made me feel at home. Grownups are bothered by my face, but children don’t seem to mind.”

    I told him he was welcome to come again. And on his next trip he arrived a little after seven in the morning. As a gift, he brought a big fish and a quart of the largest oysters I had ever seen. He said he had shucked them that morning before he left so that they’d be nice and fresh. I knew his bus left at 4 a. m. and I wondered what time he had to get up to do this for us.

    In the years he came to stay overnight with us, there was never a time he did not bring us fish or oysters or vegetables from his garden. Other times we received packages in the mail, always by special delivery; fish and oysters packed in a box of fresh young spinach or kale, every leaf carefully washed.

    Knowing that he must walk three miles to mail these, and knowing how little money he had made the gifts doubly precious. When I received these little remembrances, I often thought of a comment our next-door neighbor made after he left that first morning. “Did you keep that awful looking man last night? I turned him away! You can lose roomers by putting up such people!”

    Maybe we did lose roomers once or twice, but oh, if only they could have known him, perhaps their illnesses would have been easier to bear. I know our family always will be grateful to have known him, from him we learned what it was to accept the bad without complaint and the good with gratitude to God.

    Recently I was visiting a friend who has a greenhouse, as she showed me her flowers, we came to the most beautiful one of all, a golden chrysanthemum, bursting with blooms. But to my great surprise, it was growing in an old dented, rusty bucket. I thought to myself, “If this were my plant, I’d put it in the loveliest container I had!”

    My friend changed my mind. “I ran short of pots,” she explained, “and knowing how beautiful this one would be, I thought it wouldn’t mind starting out in this old pail. It’s just for a little while, till I can put it out in the garden.”

    She must have wondered why I laughed so delightedly, but I was imagining just such a scene in heaven. “Here’s an especially beautiful one,” God might have said when he came to the soul of the sweet old fisherman. “He won’t mind starting in this small body.”

    This happened long ago — and now, in God’s garden, how tall lovely soul must stand. The LORD does not look at the things man looks at. Man looks at the outward appearance, but the LORD looks at the heart.” (Samuel 16:7b)

  • Mary

    I praise and thank God for you and your lovely family, Bristol. Keep up the good work. Keep the truth flowing into this truth-starved society. I’ll keep you and your family in my prayers, that God’s holy angels keep you safe.

    I can’t post on your Fox News site. I’ve registered, but the site is somehow blocking me. I think most major media outlets block folks who post from the conservative viewpoint. That may be why you didn’t get more shares or postive comments.

    I shared your letter to Obama on Facebook by copying and pasting the IP address onto my page. That kind of sharing is not tallied as a “share.”

    God bless you and yours always– holding you close to His Sacred Heart.

  • Betty H. Short

    What heartwarming stories – all. Can only believe that unless they truly find
    Jesus as their Savior that Bill Moyer and the President will spend eternity saying
    “if only” – but they won’t get to come back and play “let’s make a deal”.

    Hell is going to be dark (the absence of the Lord who IS the Light of the World). Truly feel sad for them and will pray they accept Him before it’s too late. Life is too short, eternity too long and hell is too hot. I don’t want anyone to go there.
    Jesus died for all of us; but we must make the choice to accept that death as the only substitute for our sins and live for Him.

    The President’s remarks, putting Rush down, sounded like it would be OK with
    him if his own daughters went into that kind of lifestyle. In my opinion, that was
    the saddest thing of all. I can’t believe he meant it; but that’s what I gleaned
    from his comments. I’m proud of you Bristol – keep up the good work ! ! ! ! ! ! !

    • LMA

      Come now, Betty. As a Christian, you know better than to speculate how our President will spend eternity.

      What lifestyle would that be? A young law student that stands up for the healthcare needs of her fellow women? You’re sad about Rush Limbaugh, who spews more hate than just about anyone? C’mon now. WWJD?

      Bill Maher, not Bill Moyer. Vastly different personalities. One is a comedian, the latter is a respected journalist. As a matter of fact, google Bill Moyer and read some of his editorials and writings. It might open up a whole new world to you.

    Your determination to speak truth to lies and expose hypocrisy is inspiring. Keep it up!

  • http://I'mguessingthiswon'tmakeitontheblog=P Brandologist

    No one should be insulting you or your family. :(
    Obama probably wont apologize, but I am certainly sorry you had to hear those things. I have a brother that suffers from autism. I could relate to your situation. I often had to care for him.

    But, as much as I hate to say it.. you and your family asked for this, you asked for it when your mother accepted the VP nomination, you ask for the criticism everytime you step into that public spotlight. I’d ask on a side note, has you or your mother said anything hurtful to anyone in the public light? Should we play ghosts of soundbytes past? Nah, I’m to tired for that and walking dead season 2 is finished downloading.

    This issue is drawing attention to the fact that contraception, in the year 2012, is.. controversial. If I was a republican, I’d want to get away from the issue of contraception and any sort of apology requests that draws attention to that very issue, politically motivated or not. As long as the dems and liberals don’t get lazy, this will be a landslide victory. Your half decade forecast is looking… demtastic!

  • ROTFLMAO GMAFB

    Calista,

    You’re proud of Bristol’s “hole” family? Are you referring to the hole you’re sitting on from which excrement exits? Should a staunch supporter of theirs really be calling them what they repeatedly prove themselves to be in the public arena? :D

  • Carol Cumbie

    Bristol I hope you are not holding your breath waiting for president Obama to call. It won’t happen. He is afraid of your mom. Since you are a lot like your mom that probably makes him scared of you. He is really a wuss. He likes doing things underhanded. That is why so many do his bidding. Keep up your great attitude. I loved the picture of your little brother he handsome and has grown so much.
    Take care
    hugs

  • wodiej

    First time here Bristol and glad to see you are just as scrappy as your Mama! That picture of little bro Trig is adorable. Big fan of your Mom’s. Read your book-it was very good.

    On Maher, no one should be talking like that period. At least Limbaugh apologized but I am disappointed in the many conservatives defending him.

    Unfortunately, as long as we are on this earth, Christians will be persecuted and there will always be evil. All the best with your new blog.

    Hello Bristol, You are an inspiration for young adults such as yourself. You and your family have been thrust into the political arena and the public eye and your whole family have maintained a Christ like attitute in your responses to some of the most hateful and hurtful dialog. May God grant you all safety and success and may you continue to use your 1st Amendment rights to opine on the politics of the day. Your mom is certainly an inspiration to millions and now you too are building a following. Continue to use that influence for the youth of America and at the same time, put to shame those adults that dwell only on evil continually. No, I know you know you’ll never get a call from the WH but you were dead on in trying!

    God’s richest blessings and your brother is the coolest kid in town.

      Too bad what you call the Palins’ “Christ like attitude” doesn’t extend to their views about minorities, homosexuals, and various other things.

      • Johnny

        Explain Christ’s attitude toward minorities, homosexuals, and various other things, please.

  • GiveMe ABreak

    I knew you would throw in some made up “comment” that makes fun of your brother. You, Bristol are the sick one. You obviously put that in so that you could play VICTIM ONCE AGAIN.
    No one is that foolish to believe your lies. You and your Mom are horrible liars, using whatever you can to make it seem like you are the victim, when in fact, you are the evil ones.

    You must be feeling lonely in Alaska. Out of the spot light since Hollywood did not want you. So you have to blog to get attention. After all you did graduate High School, so you must think you are smart. Why not try to better yourself be attempting to get into a college. You can only try to make a living off your son for only so long.

    • John Long

      Yes cw (too afraid to let anyone know your full name) – because people are just worth NOTHING if they are not “famous” and on TV. Most of us have REAL lives, and can get by just fine without 24 hour fame – have not seen you on TV lately either, have we? @ Bristol – glad you have found a good outlet to post your views without having to go through Hollywood – Hope your family can return to as close to “normal” as you want to be as quicky as possible.

  • CharterOakie

    Bristol – your righteous challenge to the president was outstanding! Thanks for drawing attention to the double standard and ugly hypocrisy on the left. And congratulations on the success in getting that message out.

    With regard to the way the angry, lost souls react to you and your family…
    “Indeed, all who desire to live godly in Christ Jesus will be persecuted. ”
    2 Timothy 3:12

    And as your mom asked rhetorically and so correctly in her speech last weekend (http://conservatives4palin.com/2012/03/governor-palins-speech-in-greenville.html):
    Would God lie? Is there error in His Word? No, He wouldn’t; no, there isn’t. It means what it says and says what it means.

    Further:
    “Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me.”
    Matthew 5:11

    Bristol, you and your family are blessed indeed. We thank God for your lives.
    Carry on, sister.

    Bristol:
    People like cw above offend me. I have a three college degrees (two post undergraduate), and I teach college students. To cw, going to college makes you no more intelligent than barking makes you a dog. Many times, I would gladly give all my degrees up for the simpler life, and the 100,000s of dollars spent in pursuit of them.
    The response above just goes to show the hypocrisy from the left. He/she cannot discuss how the president is being hypocritical and you point it out. Instead, that person has to attack you for not going to college?
    Bill Maher was recently in our area (Huntsville, AL) and all the media could do was make fun of the people in another part of the facility for going to a monster truck show. Maher makes me sick, not because I disagree with his political opinions that he has the right to have, but because he represents a segment of our society that tries to shout down the rest of us who don’t see things as he does.
    His and cw’s attacks on you and your family show their true colors in that it is not about your family’s political opinions, but for what (Who) you stand for. It is an attack against our Creator and those who stand with Him.

    Bristol,

    You persevere with your right to blog and share your thoughts from the heart. These negative comments are designed to discourage you from participating in your 1st Amendment rights to free speech. These are people who probably sit at their desk all day long and fire their vile from behind an e-mail address in safety. If they could put that energy by stepping away from their computers long enough and doing volunteerism, much positive could result in this world. If their statements had merit, then fine but since I’ve been on here, nothing even registers as intelligent.

    Keep on keeping on Bristol and God give you strength and wisdom.

    Bristol, you have no idea how happy it makes me to see you speaking out against hatred, injustice and just plain evil. I always had hope that good would triumph over evil, but now that we have another courageous Palin woman speaking out, I suddenly have a better feeling about the outcome. Keep it up!

  • Mel

    You have so much growing up and learning to do. Why are you doing it in the public’s eye instead of the privacy of your family circle? You do have a choice, you know. You can live a life without conflict if you just decide to.

    • Daewen

      Would it make more sense to hide? Sarah Palin isn’t running for office and there are those who still seek out ways to cause damage. Bristol is standing up because the media doesn’t seem to want to give her the privacy the most of us take for granted.

      • Mel

        Daewen, Sarah Palin behaves like she’s running for office and many of her supporters believe firmly that she is.

        Bristol would not need to stand up to the media if she would just top tweaking them. You cannot be a public figure but be asking for privacy at the same time. What she’s really asking for is 100% adulation, and she simply won’t get that. She’ll only get more pain, which will affect her family and her relationship with her son, who should be more important to her than self-promotion.

      • ROTFLMAO GMAFB

        The media doesn’t seem to want to give her privacy?

        I must’ve missed the media forcing her lard ass to volunteer to be on “Dancing With the Stars” and her mother’s failed reality show. Last I checked, no one’s twisting her arm and making her exploit her son on aLifetime show either. 8-)

  • Patriot

    It’s sad how many good, honest Americans are being manipulated by this family. They will do ANYTHING for publicity. At this point I am ashamed to be a Republican. We are the party of finger pointing and hatred. We condemn anything and everything that is different and take no personal responsibility for our actions. When did we become such losers? Constantly whining whenever someone looks at us wrong. I think we are in for major disappointment in November and maybe at that point we will reassess and stop letting folks like the Palins shape our message and use us for their own profit and gain.

    • Glenn Briggs

      “Patriot”, your monicker is a JOKE! You’re no more a patriot of this country than Comrade Obama.

  • Lisa

    I don’t agree with you politically at all; however, anyone that would make fun of your brother is dead wrong. Trig is a gift from God. His smile lights up the world and because he doesn’t understand evil – he will always see the good in everyone. On any day that you or your mom feel down, all you have to do is see the love in his little face and everything will be alright. God makes no mistakes. My cousin is also one of God’s special children. So ignore every idiot that has something mean to say about him. They have no idea what a gift Trig is to the world. God bless you sweetie.

  • Tim

    Hey Bristol, Thanks for sharing all that you have. I cannot imagine being in the spotlight, and hearing the horrible things that people say. If I don’t agree with someone’s political views, I won’t tell them they are ugly, horrible, etc. It is still ‘just’ politics. We have have a healthy debate, but at the end of the day, I still go to work, spend time with my family, and enjoy my hobbies. Politics ‘is what it is’. If you vote one way, I vote the other… we can still go for a run together, or spend a weekend camping, etc.
    For the people that have said such hateful things, just ignore them. Stay focused on what you love to do, work hard, play hard, and ignore the idiots! :)

    • Lisa

      Tim – you and I agree 100%. Political views aren’t everything! I am one person that totally disagrees with the Palin family politically, but I greatly admire Bristol for what she’s accomplished. I have friends from both sides of the political aisle – we just don’t discuss it.

      I just told Bristol to ignore the idiots as well. Sound advice. :) Have a great day!

  • Nita

    What an enjoyable woman you are Bristol. Your parents raised you right, in the word, surrounded by the scriptures that prove you have many reasons on earth to live for our Lord. One is to be brave, speak your mind, protect your self from the likes of those who say horrible things, even when they haven’t a clue as to who you are or where your heart is. God is awesome, to which you know. Satan, well, he’s causing so much havoc in God’s earth and His heavens it’s pathetic, as those who choose to follow the wide path have no place walking the streets of gold. Our Lord’s very words. Keep being the beautiful woman you are, stay strong in prayer, spend time alone with our Father, and he will forever set your path straight. I’m so far from perfect, yet He who died on the cross for my sins forgave me, to which I thank Christ Jesus daily for the brilliant days he wakes me to each morning. We have stumbling blocks, of course, but keeping our eye on the reward and helping others find theirs as well, it’s a Commandment. Pray for those who have that forked tongue, and your job will be lightened, for God takes over, protecting you. Can I borrow your adorable baby brother? What a GOD SEND indeed. I love you and your whole family, wishing I could have the privilege of meeting you someday! I always keep you in my heart and prayers. We are strong in Him who knew us before ever being weaved in our mother’s womb. God bless, and U GO GIRL!! Always in HIS GRIP our little Sampson Grizzly, female style!! :)

The hatred comes from illiterate and brainwashed sheep ! As you can see ,it’s incredible how much your family has endured ! Bless you & the U.S.A.

  • Jack2211

    Is a blog a viral sensation when written by a Palin and reported by dozens of news sites?

    Okay, so I don’t think you can brand all people with liberal views as haters or say they’re against your family — anymore than all conservatives can be branded as racist or ignorant. I wish we’d focus on issues in the country and not attack people merely for having opposing views.

    That said, I agree that comments against your brother and against your son are, well, horrible and unnecessary. I don’t think the president of the united states should be apologizing to you personally. Although, had you been a citizen testifying before a committee and suddenly got slammed personally, well, that might be different. I also wasn’t thrilled with all the knocked-up jokes about you. I think some of these horrible attitudes about teen/single pregnancy (while, not
    desirablr, shouldn’t be shameful) are part of the problem — we either attack abortion or praise choice but we don’t look enough at education and alternatives like adoption, or scholarships to help single moms move forward.

    I agree that you didn’t ask for any of this, originally, but I also think that actively pursuing celebrity opens you up to these jokes and comments. Horrible things get said about people on reality TV shows — should the president be apologizing to them?

    What’s the issue here? Are you trying to address lousy language and attitudes against women? Are you calling for civility in public discourse! Or is this just anger about what people have said about your family?

    You’re in a position to really help other people and raise awareness on issues that transcend party lines…

  • Ashley

    Bristol- Thank you for having the drive you have to write what you did. I sympathize with you having a child at 17. You had to be out in the public and for that you have my respect. I don’t know how you or your family did it. I have nothing but respect for your family. My husband serves in the military and so as a fellow military family & Conservative I wanted to encourage you. Don’t lose faith, Don’t give up, Don’t pay attention to the silliness and hatred on the left. We already know there is a double standard when it comes to the Left and the Right. It would appear those on the left can say and or do whatever they want, say the most vile of things and it’s all good. God forbid Rush call someone a slut though *gasp* the world is crumbling all around us. Hang in there!

  • Minie

    Bristol, I just love reading about you and your family, you all are so strong and brave. I too had a child when I was 17 but married. I know it’s hard but you’ve endured so much criticism. Just remember, you are your family are the most respected, not those who do the name calling-they are just showing their ignorance. I love Alaska, have been there 5 times and enjoy everything I can read, see or hear about it. You go girl, I voted for you every possible time that I could on Dancing With the Stars……….enjoyed seeing you and what courage that took!
    God Bless and keep you and your family, you are precious.

  • Tara Grunlund

    Bristol, I’m impressed at what a well-spoken young lady you are. Wise beyond your years, & I applaud you for staying strong & being a good mom despite all the adversity your family has had to face. A previous commentor mentioned your parents raising you right & that is so true. Both figuratively & literally. lol Honestly I think there are many more people out there who think highly of you & your family despite what the mainstream media would have you believe. Those who use slurs/slander or the like are probably as the saying goes, “jealous”. Probably the same people that picked on those less forunate in some area, in High School. They aren’t worth debating, they show their true, ignorant colors. Keep strong & may God Bless you & your family, especially considering the storms you’ve had to endure in the name of what you believe in. At least that is the freedom we have in the good ol’ USA, to be able to discuss & debate. Press on!

  • http://thespeechatimeforchoosing.wordpress.com/ IwjwI

    The way you posted some of the awful comments reminded me of how Breitbart did that on Twitter. Keep up the great work that you are doing here. You and your mom tag-teaming BHO this past week with the TRUTH was priceless. I’m thrilled that you have grown into the spunky, fearless, and tell it like it really is woman that you are now.

    May God protect you and your family to continue standing up for what is right. May you continue to be an example of a strong voice and an inspiration for young conservatives. We need you in this fight to save our great country and ourselves from a Marxist takeover.
    Your blog serves many purposes, but the gathering together of right minded supporters in the comment section is a very important one, as it helps us support one another in the cause for Freedom and Liberty.
    I’m very grateful that you have added your blog to the much needed places that we have to have good conversations.

    Your photo of Trig is priceless. What a precious little man you have the
    opportunity to grow with and love.

  • JuLeah

    I don’t know what words were said or how you were attacked. No one ought to be attacked based on ….. gender, race and so forth. Children are off limits, even grown children.

    President Obama can’t really spend his time calling all attacked in the press by folks who hate women, hate people of color, hate non Christian, hate LGBT and so forth. He would never get off the phone.

    The long distance to Sec. of State Clinton alone would exceed the phone budget. She gets slammed every day. So does the First Lady. Has anyone heard what they are saying about Rosie these days? Remember when Ellen was under fire?

    Do you recall what was said about Pres. Clinton’s child? The press called her ugly almost every week.

    Right now, if President Obama were to use his ‘focus on just one person’ time, for anyone, it needs to go towards the family of the child shot in FL.

    Bristol, I am sorry you are under attack. No one deserves that! And, your child is not a mistake. That you had that child is not a mistake. Your bother is not a mistake. I am so sorry if that is the message you received.

    And, maybe you could blog about the child in FL? Maybe you could use your voice and position to help his family? You did not deserve to be attacked. Trayvon did not deserve to be shot.

    Do you know how many woman die every day at the hands of people who hate women? How many children die every day at the hands of their parents or care givers?

    You are on the correct path; to understand the comments made about you were not okay and to speak up in your own defense. Good on ya for that.

    Step back and see the bigger picture. You have a powerful voice and are in a position to help. Use your voice to make a difference for all women, all children, all people on the fringes and unheard.

  • Leslie Wagner

    I love it when some reasonable person says I do not like the names they call you but you ask for it because you are a celebrity and you open yourself up for these things. (Did Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords get what she should have expected because she was a public figure I wonder?) Oh and the 9 year old little girl that was killed when Gabby was shot. Yes what about her she was not a public person right?) I always wonder if it is understood by these same reasonable people, that you were called horrible names when your mother Sarah was known but you were only known as her 17-year-old daughter not a public figure or a celebrity yet. Hummmm I wonder did they know???? I wonder if calling your sweet little brother ugly names from the time he was born with in some cases an insulting picture to go with the name calling was Trig fair game? Hummmmmm I wonder? I always wonder how these people can sooth their souls with remarks like you open up yourself because…..! I also have a problem seeing how people can find this Law Student a victim. She is an activist not just some poor girl wanting to help all women out with the pill. Please. No one has a problem getting the pill. Even if they do not have the $$’s we tax payers have been paying for their pills since they could get the pill. I do agree that it would be nice to debate this issue with people however in the way that we once could debate. Without personal insults and violent and filthy language. But until we get back to both sides staying civil during the debate, I am through being nice to nasty people with nasty filth coming out of their mouths just because they don’t like my politics. Get a clue here, if the silly people think that America is easily changed they should read their history books. This Administration is not the first group of folks that thought we were asleep at the wheel and they could just move in and take control of the car. I can drive my car

    I find it funny that those who want you to shut up are spending time reading your blog. There are plenty that I would love to see shut up but I don’t waste my time reading or listening to what they have to say. I mean really if all you have to do in life is spend your time throwing hate around at the side you are not in favor of, you should find another hobby. You are not going to hate someone into not saying what they believe, and you are not going to change the passion that two wonderful women have to better our country.
    With that said, Bristol, I adore you, you keep saying what you need to. It is obvious that you are making a difference and that you have more than enough supporters. Keep it up girl!

  • jennifer

    It breaks my heart that anyone could look at the precious face of your brother and not see the beauty and innocence of a child. I admire you Bristol, and your entire family. Keep doing all you can to speak out against the wrongs of this crazy world we live in. God bless.

  • Doug

    Bristol,
    I truly think it is a shame that people have slammed your family so hard. I believe it arises from jealousy, but even then, there is no place in America for hate and bigotry. You keep up your blogs, and many of us will keep reading and responding. Frankly I think that your Mother is an amazing woman, with great perspective. I also think that you and your family are pretty tough people to be able to continue to deal with all of this. I wish you all the best of everything today, and in the future.
    Your friend, Doug

We were birthed into a greater respect for one another than what is being spoken today. There is A Spirit,yes I said spirit that is creating great hate in this nation that is diabolical in nature and content.

    Bristol I feel compelled to stand in for all the hate mongers and apologize to you and your mother and your whole family for a people gone mad. Sadly this Spirit is spreading like while fire. Yes I did say Spirit!!

    Bristol as you said evil will not win, they may think they are winning but we do know the end of the story and God has already won, we are just walking it out.

    Bristol.
    I wish you the best, always.

    Yet you might learn to let go a bit.
    Asking the President to call you? Do you not know it was Obama who protected you in the first place?
    In 2008, when your pregnancy was made public, Obama stopped his campaign from saying anything derogatory – and he pointed out that his mother was a teenager when he was born.
    You must acknowledge the fact that Obama did, in fact, protect you when you were most vulnerable.

    Add to it not everyone is going to like you, or your family. But plenty do – and there should be comfort in that fact.
    Rather than concentrating on those who make you miserable, and obsessing about what a few said about Trig, I recommend looking beyond petty slights.
    At the end of the day, the only important people are those who care about you, and those you care for.

    • Gwen

      I wonder if these people ever notice that her older brother is rarely ever talked about. Well, except for his paternity but that was a hot topic long before her mother was tapped for vp.

      My theory is that he’s not speculated about because he doesn’t seek celebrity status. He’s gone about his own private life with his wife and new baby. They aren’t interested in reality shows and magazine spreads. If the lime-light bothers her that much, maybe she should consider doing the same.

  • Raz

    Look, Funs fun but lets be serious for a minute, I’ve read some of Bristols FB posts and I remember her from her Moms failed reality Tv show and there is no way on this blue green planet that Bristol Palin is writing this blog, I don’t know who is ghost writing it for her but it’s definitely not Bristol, She just isn’t that smart !

    • Doug

      Raz, that would seem to be a pretty outrageous statement that you have made here. I guess my question would be: Do you have any proof to substantiate such a slanderous statement? I certainly hope that you do, as slander is a pretty serious thing. My suggestion is that if you can’t make a nice comment, then maybe you should read a different blog?

    I’ve said it elsewhere (over on the Hot Air thread), Bristol, I’ll say it here, but not verbatim. You’re of stronger stock than am I. There is no way I could withstand the massive amount of hatred that is slung at you, your mother, your sisters, your bothers, or your son. You come from much stronger stock than do I.

    We are all truly blessed by Providence to have your family in our midst. And we are all truly blessed by Providence to have a sinner such as you in our midst. And we are all sinners, as is evidenced by the need for Jesus’ most Holy Sacrifice, some of us in the same way, but many of us in worse ways.

    I have to say there are a great many “JLE”s on the intartubes” (that Al Gore “invented”). “Your a hillbilly and Im smarter than you (but I can’t write worth a lick while you can write circles around me).” My brother, a tenured college English professor, would shake his head and laugh at the buffoonery those folks attempt to pass off as intelligent dialogue.

    It is very obvious “JLE” is incapable of reading for comprehension, since “JLE” didn’t see your statement that you didn’t expect Obama to call you or to return that million-dollar-contribution from the misogynist (he’ll need every dime of it to get re-elected). But “JLE” only wanted to spew his/her hatred and feel “holier than thou”. As usual, the Leftist only succeeded in proving the depravity of a great many on the Left.

    But, Bristol, you keep on truckin’. And I hope you do more than dip your toe into the dangerous waters of politics. We need more heady swimmers like you.

    And, as some famous person you might know once said, “Game On!”

  • Joann

    Thank you for standing up for what is right. It appears that you are taking your moms advice by making a difference without a title. The reason why the haters are attacking not only your mom, you and your family is because they can’t stand decent people, it goes against the evil inside them and it also reflects their evil back on them, which they cannot stand, it’s as if someone sprinkled holy water on the devil itself. ;0) Never sit down and shut up, always fight for what you believe is right and never take any prisoners.

  • Karen Blodgett

    Bristol, I hope you and your family keep doing what you guys are doing. Keep stirring stuff up and pointing out the hypocrisies of the moronic, classless liberals.

    OF COURSE liberals would try to turn the point you made into a whole different issue. It’s what they do when they lack a valid argument that’s a direct response to what’s been said. They’re unable to respond to what you’ve argued so they generate some philosophical b.s. that’s not on the topic. The fact is, both maher and Limbaugh are media figures and commentators, and nothing gives maher the right to say all the BS he said. But of course, clueless liberals defend maher’s nasty speak as his “freedom of speech” and label Limbaugh’s words as hate speech. It’s sad there’s so many simple minded morons out there.

  • Julian

    God bless you and your family; I have not seen such a combination of class, grace, beauty and strength as exemplified by every one of you, in the political world over the last 50 years.
    Just ignore – don’t even read! – that hate mail, for the comments made by the sad and angry losers are never worth the effort. Truly, the left, and the democrat party, are the tools of hatred and evil in our time, and they embrace filthiness and lying as though they were virtues to be prized.
    You are remarkable, and I salute your courage and honesty. You would be a good role model for any young girls today.
    Oh – one last thing: a wonderful side effect of the demonic morons who attack your family. Four people I have known over the years, who always voted democrat, have left that party of evil specifically because of the mindless hatred which the left has directed at your beautiful family. Two of them are now voting as Republicans, one is an independent and one is a Libertarian. and every one of them reacted this way to the vile words and actions of the democrats.
    So carry on, sister in Christ, and live a good and full life. You are an inspiration.

  • Donna

    Bristol, those of us who support your family are so proud of you. Not just for fighting back, although it’s time, but for being such an exceptional mother at such a young age. I am very sorry that your son’s father has not helped you more, but you can hold your head high. I hope we can expect to hear more from you, you are a chip off the old block, as they say, and that’s a very good thing! God Bless you, and your family.

  • Erika

    Bristol, you will always find people who will like you and who don’t. It’s a part of life. The best thing to do is to ignore the haters, keep positive thinking people in your life and talk to young people who think it would be cool to have a baby that it isn’t the same for everyone. It’s great to have a family that helps you, but not everyone has wonderful parents who will help support you and help you with your baby. My parents would have helped had I asked for it but I was too proud and stubborn to ask for help from anyone.

    People like Bill Maher and JLE simply show their ignorance. Rush is NOT paid by the Republicans which shows Donna’s ignorance.

    You and your family know who special your brother is. I went to school with a boy who had Downs and back then it wasn’t called Downs Syndrome. Back then, when he was born, the doctors told the parents to put him in an institution. They refused and when he was school aged, they entered him in public School. “Cal JR” and other children like him are the most happy children you will ever meet. They love everyone, they don’t know the meaning of the word “hate,” they love help everyone, they are very affectionate and most well adjusted kids you will ever meet. There is nothing like the feeling when you are feeling sad, depressed or unappreciated and have a child like this to wrap their arms around you, give you a hug and tell you “everything is going to be okay. Tomorrow is going to be a new day and it will be than today.”
    I use to get teased a lot growing up because I was the smallest student in the school. Even Cal who was a grade or two below me was taller and I was an easy target. He use to tell me that I had to think tall and I will feel as though I was as tall as mountain. I didn’t have the heart to tell him it didn’t work lol. I will have to ask my mom what ever happened to Cal. I should have kept in touch with him more often after I married and moved out of State.

    Cherish your brother and ignore those who call your family awful names. The more a person responds to that kind of thing, the more they will continue to attack you and your family.

  • CindyLou

    Bristol, we are looking forward to you growing up and expressing your true self.

  • Tee Vww

    I call BS on that coment. No one belives he is your brother.

  • Roger W Abraham

    Bristol, I commend you for your stand against an administration that has shown itself to be a bunch of immoral hippocrits, that could care less about what this country stands for, where it came from, or even what will happen to the US and its people after his stupidity is implemented! The many politicians and people he has conned into helping him accomplish his immoral crap will figure it out after it’s too late for the country to survive in it’s present form, and too late also for his helpers! Bottom line is, those people who live off everyone else will find they won’t be so favored after he becomes dictator in chief!! Bill Maher comes from the bottom of the barrel, and Obama’s failure to repudiate him and those who act in the same way only show Obama’s glaring moral backruptcy and ignorance!
    I applaud you for your stand, I applaud your mother and your family for being the kind of people who have made America a beacon of hope around the world for all these years!
    PS My wife and I watched you on “Dancing with the Stars” – we thought you were great!!

  • Patriot

    Remember everyone to go out and buy Bristol’s book and donate to her Mother’s non-existent campaign! Its the only way we can really show our support to the fine upstanding CHRISTIAN women. Remember its us against them..don’t let anyone tell you any different and absolutely don’t make the mistake of thinking about something for yourself. The Palin’s will tell us how we are supposed to feel about something. And if you find yourself forgetting remember that they have a special needs child which makes the entire family more special than any other family and more deserving of out pity and attention. It also makes them more patriotic and america loving. GOD BLESS!

    • http://truthbeforedishonor.wordpress.com John Hitchcock

      “Patriot”, you really need to go back to Moby School and Mockery School. You failed dismally on both counts.

      Just remember, “Patriot”, they’re not laughing with you; they’re laughing at you.

      • Patriot

        Thanks John! And God Bless You!

  • Laura

    Just remember Bristol that the ones that attack, aren’t worth the trouble worrying about. They have a lack in their life and are unhappy so they have to lash out to make themselves feel better. My mother always taught me, If you don’t have anything nice to say then don’t say anything at all.

  • http://truthbeforedishonor.wordpress.com John Hitchcock

    Off-topic, but Bristol, I expect you’ll find out what I found out: Multiple nestings of comments will not lead to a comment thread that can be followed very well at all. If you continue your nested comment section, I suggest one or two nests at a maximum for readability and for following. Beyond that leads to gobbledygook.

  • Angie

    The first comment is mean spirited, but it cracks me up. If you’re going to tell someone that they are an idiot, at least learn some basic grammar/spelling rules first.

  • WMoonFox

    I truly admire the way you have taken this unfortunate situation and made it entirely about you and your family. Even Limbaugh and Beck must sit in awe of your PR team.

  • Carrie

    You have turned out to be a bright young woman and mother! I am a mom to six beautiful children- 2 of them girls- I hope my girls will look up to you and learn not only from your mistakes, but also from your ablitily to stand firm in who you are and what you believe in. We are praying for you and your whole family!

    Hi Bristol. Hatemongers are always going to be around to cause pain if allowed. I have a lot of respect for you and your family for the way all of you handle yourselves in tough situations. My daughter was pregnant before marriage and we love our grandson and her, now he is a dad and having to fight to see his child. He’s great dad too. He works full time and goes to college, graduating with his associates degree in electronics in May. I have kept up with your family and enjoy your mom on Fox News. I voted for her and John and I stand behind her in how she believes. In that, we are very much alike too. Keep your faith, keep your truths and ALWAYS keep your head held high. I really feel as if I know your family, ya’ll are that important to me. I am from the south(Alabama) and proud of it. May God bless you and all your family. Please tell your mom I was not a soccer mom, but I was a baseball/softball mom and also a wrestler/football grandmother and a basketball/volleyball/cheerleader grandmother. lol

  • Pamela Masterson

    Thank you Bristol, for your reply, it’s so wonderful that you take the time. Please keep up all the good work that your doing, stay true to yourself. Keep all the love going for your son and family, I truly believe their is nothing like family. It can be lost so easily. God’s Blessing to you and your.

  • Cory

    Hi Bristol,

    Your Mom is awesome. All of us in our home in CA – Love her.
    You’re growing up to be exceptional too! And, Trig definitely is an assett to the world. Whenever I see him with your Dad my heart gets softened :)

    All liberals should be aware, conservatives will prevail; we have much more reserve and resolve to persevere. You’re wasting to much energy on a diminishing return; you’re being used by your leaders and your hatred is the clue.

  • chuck quinn

    Bristol; Those who say and do hateful things.May find in the future, something may happen to them,or someone they hold dear.That will relate to the hatered they cast at others. What goes around often comes around. Keep your head up!You and your family are to be admired!

  • mprince

    There’s one if difference,Bristol. You and your mother have made the choice to be in the public eye. You are a target just like other politicians and celebrities. Sarah Fluke is a private person who simply gave her opinion. If you don’t like what’s being said about you,then maybe you shouldn’t be placing yourself in the public arena. You obviously don’t have the maturity you need for it.

    • http://rndnum.wordpress.com Brian Epps

      Sorry, that lie won’t pass a simple look at Fluke’s bio. Fluke is a political activist who “testified” (no oath) before a political rally. She went to Georgetown, by her own words, to fight it’s policy of not paying for elective contraception. She is in all ways a public person.

      Bristol was actually thrust into the public arena through the sheer hatred of left-statists for her mother. She had no choice in the matter. In such a situation, one can become very bitter and defensive, but Bristol chose instead to handle the situation by embracing it with good cheer.

      • Jesus

        Brian her mother thrust her into the spotlight when she accepted John McCain’s offer. After the election Bristol could have chosen a private life but instead she went on 2 reality shows, wrote a book and did a publicity tour for a shoe line. To say she had no choice in the matter is ridiculous. She’s laughing at you all the way to the bank.

  • Millie

    You just keep on keeping on. Cream rises to the top and you just keep climbing upward.

    • Gwen

      Do you agree that the “nasty” are on both sides, regardless of how much Christian jewelry one wears or how much scripture they quote? I certainly see enough on both sides. The difference is, most dems aren’t out there touting the family values, moral high ground card. It’s the hypocrisy that most people dems don’t like.

  • Cerces Czuu

    I’m still wondering how “Bill Maher is much more than a comedian. He’s a big-time political player,” but is also a “professional failure.” LMAO! Just more Sarah Palin word salad.

    • ROTFLMAO GMAFB

      Apparently Bristol doesn’t consider politicians who quit before their terms are up, (like her morally bankrupt, sorry excuse for a “mother” did) professional failures.

      I daresay those in Alaska who aren’t mindless Palin sheep and actually use their brains beg to differ!

  • Curt Wilson

    Bristol, you and your mom inspire me when you both keep speaking out. There may be evil in this world but there is more good. I’m proud of you and your mom.

    Thank you for the sacrifice your whole family has made on behalf of Americans. You are all so brave and strong ,your family’s voice has inspired a lot of Americans to stay sane and hold on to values in a world that is so influenced by a hypocritical ,twisted ,self centered and selfish Hollywood . Please keep it up, we need your strong voices. May G-d bless your whole family. By the way your baby brother and your son are absolutely beautiful.

  • christopher finley

    I think the fact that you and your family have gotten such seething hatred from liberals and the like is because they know what you say is true and they have no legitimate argument to make in they’re defense. You should be very proud of yourself for standing up to them. It just shows what little class these people really have. keep up the good work

    • Gwen

      Some of us have highly developed BS detectors. I can see some in my own party. But there’s a heck of a lot more of it on the right side of the aisle. Ann Coulter recently spoke about it. I thought the sky was going to fall the day I agreed with her.

  • Brad Karr

    I will repeat a previous reply, ” Keep on Keep’in on ” You are one tough young lady, just like your Mom. I wouldn’t want to mess with your Dad either :)

  • Chris

    I agree with you. People can be unkind and say terrible things. The majority of people probably feel a huge amount of resistance due to your mom’s somewhat misinformed approach to politics. She appears to be a genuinely nice person on television, but lacks knowledge I would prefer my political leaders to have.

    In regards to your request that President Obama call you, he shouldn’t. Fluke was testifying to congress and was publicly humiliated because she did that. You have never been publicly humiliated as a result of testifying before congress.

    I’m sorry you were insulted in the way you were, but by you making these comments you have once again opened yourself up to a lot of criticism.

    Remember, a closed mouth gathers no foot.

  • CJ

    Bristol,
    GOD BLESS YOU for sharing that BEAUTIFUL video on Down’s Syndrome! It is deeply moving and the message is awesome!!
    I’m still wiping the mascara off my face as I type :) I’d like to share that for the past 10 yrs, I have been working in Special Education with THE MOST INCREDIBLE CHILDREN who BLESS my life each and every day. It began with a simple prayer. “Lord, please provide a job I can really love”. Well, within days, my prayer was answered and although it was the desire of my heart to help these precious kids, little did I know, that THEY would end up helping ME!! :) You, know, we serve such an AWESOME GOD who knows exactly what we need far better than we do. It has been such a BLESSING and a PRIVILEGE to take care of these children…….and a far greater BLESSING to be the recipient of all that THEY teach ME! :) Here we are, in a world gone mad believing that “we”and “they” have the right to decide who is worthy of life and who isn’t…….who has value and who doesn’t…….who are useful and who are “USELESS EATERS” as “they” call them!! How malevolent, vile and arrogant this is and the devastating consequences of same are just beginning to manifest. However, that being said, we can take great comfort in knowing that GOD is still on HIS throne, and “of HIS Kingdom there shall be NO end”. HIS justice will prevail, HIS enemies will be defeated and “HE shall reign forever and ever”! :) What a beautiful, peaceful world it is going to be and the likes of Bill Maher and Co. will not be present to contaminate it. Now, that’s what I call GOOD NEWS!

    Bristol, please give your 2 very special, precious “little guys” a great BIG hug for me, ok? Oh my goodness…They’re both getting sooooo big!
    You are BLESSED w/ the gift of FAITH and a close, loving, wonderful family. Stay strong in the Lord and continue to counter and confound the ravenous wolves w/ the light and love of CHRIST. You and your family are in the hearts and prayers of so, so many :) And remember…….“If the world hates you, keep in mind that it hated me first. If you belonged to the world, it would love you as its own. As it is, you do not belong to the world, but I have chosen you out of the world. That is why the world hates you. Remember what I told you: ‘A servant is not greater than his master.’ If they persecuted me, they will persecute you also……………………………………………John 15:18-20
    But, He will never leave you or forsake you <3

  • Brian McAndrew

    I love your brother Trig, he’s so adorable!

  • Janice Duncan

    Thanks Bristol for being a strong independent young woman!! I just subscribed to your blog last week and I enjoy it so much!

    I admire your Mom too; being the Mother of a 30 year old “young man” with Down Syndrome, I feel a connection to her and the fact that I believe in her political views too is just icing on the cake!!

    Way to go…………two strong Palin women!!
    Thanks for standing up for all of us and your sweet adorable little brother too!

  • Dennis McHale

    Bristol, with your comments above, you are very obviously a smart well balance young woman, and should never stop doing what your doing as long as it remains significant or fun for you.

    Trigg: I was number ’9′ of ’11′ children and my sister Claire was number ’11′. Claire was a Down Syndrome child. She was the center of attention of an already tight family. I was eight years old. We grew up together and it seemed we never stopped laughing. My friends didn’t understand why my mom “Wanted” Claire. I never questioned it. She was a child that loved life like any other child. Anyway there were difficult times when I watched as some of my siblings didn’t come to her defense when people ridiculed ‘Retarted’ (it was the only name referred to them back in the 60′s and 70′s). Many times I got angry, but as I got older I realized it was them that was missing out. I never went a day without a hug from my sister, even if she was mad at me, or me at her. Bristol I KNOW, you know what I am saying. Claire lived until she was 33. We were told she would never make it past her teens. You got two bundles of joy! Trigg and Tripp. Tripp was born the same day as me, Dec. 27th, just 52 years later. Be well!

  • Gabe

    Thank you for what you and your family do and represent. I am truly fed up with this none-sense and frankly tired of turning the other cheek. We need to take a stand, stop being so civil, and start pushing back much more. Let’s go on the offense and show these fools we are going to take our country back.

    I so admire your courage and tenacity! I read your book when it came out and very much enjoyed your message. Now I have a 19 year old Granddaughter who got pregnant shortly after she started college. She is trying to decide whether to keep her baby or give it up for adoption. I know she is praying a lot about her decision. I sent her the copy of your book, hoping it might help her focus and make a decision about “Ellie Rue”, her little girl. Yes, baby has a name. Thank you for your courage. And good luck for your future. I have been sending your blogs on to Melodie, in hopes she will read them. Myrna Beeber

  • TammyChicago

    Consider me in the 3rd category. I have nothing but love and admiration for your family. You have been exposed, on a regular basis, to the most vile things imaginable and yet you have not become hateful or jaded. You all see life for what it is- a wonderful blessing with *some* not so wonderful moments. Your enemies truly get more frustration out of seeing you thrive than any amount of satisfaction they would derive out of taking you down. Godspeed Palins!

  • Tina Sweet

    Bristol,

    I am so proud of you and I’m sure your parents are too! It is easy to sit behind a keyboard and take pot shots at people. It’s despicable to do it to children. The left has been trying to minimize your Mom since 2008. Ironically, like poking lion (or in her case, a momma Grizzly) in a cage, they have only made her stronger! I have been privileged to hear to speak at the Extraordinary Women’s Conference and I was at CPAC 2012. I see alot of her in you :) You’re mom is a force to be reckoned with. The left know it and Republican establishment know it, and their all scared!!! It’s horrible the things they say about your family; but rest assured the majority of Americans do not believe it. They know better. Anyone who has heard your mother speak or talked with her knows better — ask Bob Beckel :) Trig is a sweetheart — I can’t believe how he is growing so. The important thing is that he is loved, and with such a big family, he will be. He is loved too by all your mom’s supporters of which there are very many — his extended family :) May God continue to bless the Palin family.

You are so miserable about your horrible life that you project your hatred onto others you don’t even know…..you are a sad person who needs therapy.

  • Victor

    Dear Bristol,

    I hope you are doing well. As you know, neither the President, nor any Presidential candidate has any authority when it comes to the actions of a SuperPAC. They are not to have any contact or be associated with each other in any shape or form, whatsoever and any contact is strictly against the law. Which makes your comment asking for the President to return the money (which he has no control over) either misinformed or misleading. This is rather troubling to me.

    As you have stated in your blog, the President has defended you and your family on several occasions. So why do you question the Presidents sincerity in his respect towards you? I believe that rhetoric in the US has become far too divisive and far too misleading when it comes to political discourse and it gives the uninformed public a false impression. I know you know what that feels like; having the public unjustifiably and spitefully attacking you. In that regard, I am confused as to why you would do the same thing, knowing how it feels to be accused of something you have no control over.

    What ever your political leanings are, is by no means my concern. I respect your political views just as much as I respect anyone else’s. It’s just that I got the impression that your comment is trying to place the sincerity of the President into question in order to garner a certain political advantage. It doesn’t feel genuine. It feels more politically motivated then sincere. I hope I’m wrong on that, but either way, it is still troubling. If I’m wrong, than your comments are leading the public (including your admirers) into believing something that isn’t true, which damages civil discourse and makes people even more divisive and more polarized than they need to be. If I’m right, then what should an uninformed reader of your blog take away from that?

    Political discourse is unlike any other form of conversation. If it isn’t treated delicately and with repsect, it can divide neighbors, friends and family. That is not the US we should live in. Nor will I teach my son and daughter that when it comes to politics, it is ok to bend the truth. When it comes to society and being in the public eye, we should be better than that.

    Please forgive the length of my comment and thank you for allowing me to voice my opinion. Best wishes to you and your family.

    Sincerely,

    Victor

    • Allison

      Victor,

      I don’t know Bristol personally, but I wanted to respond to your post. Even though you question Bristol’s motives, your post was very civil and I appreciated that so much!

      The President may not benefit directly (via cash) by Super PACs or have direct authority regarding the Super PAC’s activities, but he DOES have influence, simply by association, to address the publicized behavior of well-known contributors. (This courtesy applies to any candidate receiving Super PAC support.) Especially when celebrity-bullies support the President via despicable name-calling and taunting. Your post did not address Bristol’s well-stated main point: the President, after calling for civility in political debate, quickly defended a woman with a liberal-agenda while he has previously consistently failed to defend conservative women who have also been called equally ugly names. For this reason, Bristol has a logical and legitimate reason to question the President’s sincerity.

      Because you support respect of all political perspectives, and you care enough to write a lengthy opinion on Bristol’s blog (which I really enjoyed reading BTW), I want to encourage you to write to Bill Maher (via his Manager-Marc Gurvitz, address below). I believe you might be able to enlighten him about how misleading, disrespectful, spiteful, attacking rhetoric leads to polarizing civil outrage.

      Kindly and sincerely,
      A

    I’m appalled that anyone would have negative comments about your litle brother, or your son. They are innocent children, caught up in a drama of someone else’s making. Keep on loving them, and continue to try and protect them from that venom! As for Bill Maher getting a pass because his job description is “comedian”, I’m not buying it. He’s a political commentator and now, with that huge donation to Obama, he’s much more. I haven’t agreed with everything your mother has said and done in the political arena but your family shows great integrity.

    I am a senior(63yrs.) I have never seen this country so embellished in hate as I have seen in the past few years. ALL human beings are equal in the eyes of GOD. I can not even begin to understand what all of your family is going through. Your brother is adorable! Your son is also precious! As far as Bill M. why are people like this? They must be so unhappy with their lives that they love hurting others in the hope that they are miserable too! I pray for all of you! As far as Obama, I feel he is no way as smart as he thinks! He has done NOTHING but cause problems in our country. I can not respect or look up to him. Hopefully in Nov. he will be gone! Lynn

  • http://vernerable.wordpress.com/ Vern Crisler

    Bristol, you said: “Bill Maher is much more than a comedian. He’s a big-time political player who hides behind the “comedian” label whenever he gets criticized.”

    I think you’ve got it right except for one point. I thought one was supposed to be funny before one could be called a comedian. I think it’s been twenty years or so since I last laughed at a joke told by Maher.

    Like Letterman, he has long overstayed his welcome, and their jokes have about as much humor as there is in filing a tax return.

    • kris

      Well said Vern…
      I have no problem with those that pulled support of Rush after his rant. But can we please pull the plug on Maher’s programming too. There is really nothing funny about insult after insult with no real substantive thought. I’m honestly disapointed with the president and the republican nominees both. It’s pretty easy to point out “the other side’s” weaknesses. We need some politicians who are willing to clean their own house first.

  • CME

    Bristol, I met your parents at an event in Illinois, quite a team. They tolerated my prattling on about my trip to Alaska for several minutes… I’m very politically active & aware, but if it hadn’t been for Sarah Palin, I wouldn’t have voted in 2008. I can’t stand any more limp, pathetic politically correct reach-across-the-aisle so-called conservatives. The left is 10,000% hypocrititical on every issue, and nothing points it out more than their treatment of your mom. A successful, intelligent and motivated woman who has held high elective office, raised 5 kids, has a solid marriage and career. Isn’t this what my generation railed about in the 60′s & 70′s? She’s the poster child for everything they screamed about – a woman should ‘have it all’ – well, there she stood. But of course she doesn’t follow the Marxist line, and heaven forbid she has traditional American values. Then of course she’s the enemy. They love to pick on you, too, and I think to some extent it’s because they see in you a mirror image of their own failures, except YOU haven’t caved, you didn’t put your hand out to Big Brother, you turned your life around and haven’t lost sight of the values you grew up surrounded by. Whereas, they did lose those values, if in fact they ever had them. My wife and I are big fans of your family, and if there is any hope for America we’ll have a new president and your mother will take over the department of energy, the state department, and be put in charge of dismantling the EPA & Obamacare. If so, we will breathe a sigh of relief. (I won’t hold my breath.) God bless.

  • education

    Your Father says nothing., but yet you think people care what you think. Bristol, get an education. Try to show your son that in America things can get better by education & hard work & not sitting on your butt & whining.

    • Sue

      Apparently you care, ’cause here you are.

      • Justanothermom

        Ha ha Sue good one! And Todd says nothing because he never did. Hats off Sue, no one cares, be ed is searching Bristol on Google ha ha! Google hypocrite Education, lol.

  • Dougman

    “Why are you using your brother once again to get sympathy for yourself?”

    Projecting right from the start Darklady?

    The rest of your incoherence is something for a professional to help you with. Good luck.

    • Justanothermom

      She doesn’t need any sympathy, but the fact that you feel the need to come on here and harass a little girl shows you do. In reference to her incoherence, considering you called a kid “dark lady”, I have to imagine who the one with issues is all together. She is a kid, and according to your name you are a man, somehow I find that hard to believe. MEN don’t harass little girls.

  • education

    Well your blog has run out of steam. Hope your new show does not end last your last show, cancelled. Get an education instead of making a living off your son ( reality shows). Get an education.

    • Justanothermom

      She will get an education when you get a life.

  • Evelyn Waugh

    We have a “challenged” child. Do not sentimentalize Trig. Instead, get him the medical help he needs with glasses, hearing aids, and tutoring, so he can be best he can be, not your poster child for how good you are. It’s about him, not you.

    • kahne

      You sound like a judgemental person, who couldn’t possibly be a mother to a challenged child….I feel sorry for your kid. How you can criticize someone you don’t even know through your transparent bias is amazing. Hopefully your comment goes unheeded or unanswered.

    • Sweetpea

      Amen, Evelyn. It’s extremely distasteful to use your disabled brother to score some sort of political points or sympathy.

      • Justanothermom

        That’s rich! Don’t use trig (which by the way she was in now way doing) but you people and your kind can use her and her family to further your agendas. Lmfao, typical liberals. DO AS I SAY NOT AS I DO.

        • Patriot

          I guess JustAMom is saying that the whole family is mentally challenged. LOL.

      • Millie

        Evelyn and Sweetpea,

        What do you not understand about being proud of
        a little brother as Bristol is and having to speak out
        on his behalf against people like you who don’t seem
        to know anything about love, and that is sad.

        It is people like you and others of the same mind that
        will bring anyone out in defense of a brother or any memeber of their family and be defensive. You just
        can’t seem to handle others who are appreciative of
        this family that let them know it.
        of the family.

  • Evelyn Waugh

    Please tell us whose mother and father belong to Trig. The more you use him for publicity, the more I suspect his father is Todd and his mother was one of Todd’s wayward dalliances, swept up by Sarah for her own political ends.
    It shows that he’s not being cared for adequately in this picture.
    Give him back to his natural mother, who’ll do a better job than you are.

    • Kristin T.

      Why don’t you go ruin somebody’s else day Evelyn??? If you don’t have anything positive or reasonable to contribute to the blog…leave.

      • kahne

        Kristin,
        It is AMAZING to me that people hate others they don’t even KNOW!! It leads me to believe, all of the vitriol and excuses made towards the Palins by leftists, are just unhappy people, projecting their own problems on those who have been deemed punching bags by the media and democrats…..It is such a sad state of affairs, when a single mother of 21 affects such hatred and verbal violence….such hypocrites. Such miserable and unhappy people who need to take a good hard look at themselves and maybe go to a therapist or a minister.

      • Johnny

        Evelyn, what the hell is wrong with you?

    • Sue

      Oh brother- one of the Hater-loons is loose. They make up lies- then believe them. They frantically run from one Palin article to another- spewing nonsense. Really people, get some help.

    • Justanothermom

      Evelyn, you are the poster child for condoms. Just think how much nicer this world would be without your idiocy and hate. Grow up!

    • Millie

      Evelyn,

      I will be praying for you that you will soon find happeness in your
      life. Only a very unhappy person that is angry at the world would
      write such stuff and know not a bit of it is true. You seem so
      unhappy that you want to make others miserable like you are.

      I look at that beautiful little boy and see a very happy child who does
      not need glasses or a hearing aid and has two wonderful christian
      parents. A family that loves him dearly and another beautiful little
      boy named Tripp and in all of the pictures of the two of them that i
      have seen they are having the time of their lives and couldn’t be
      happier. His parents are trying to make a difference in America!!

      I agree with what Kristin T. says!!!!

  • Kristin T.

    It always amazes the level of hatred and vileness that people can reach in their pathetic worlds until I read some of the nasty, hateful things that get written here. Maybe she just loves her little brother people. Just because you disagree with her politics and her Mother’s political affiliations doesn’t make her an evil person. But I have to say the things that people write and say really make THEM look evil. God forgive you and soften your hearts, you are in desperate need of it. Keep up the good work Bristol, there are plenty of us out here that support and stand with you and your family. And your little brother is a great example of what true innocence, love and purity are all about. The haters are burned and scorned by such love, they cannot comprehend what it is all about. Their hearts are too full of hate and scorn to feel such emotion….pray for them.

  • sophia jackson

    I am not a conservative, but I read your blog as I am interested in the recent stoprush movement. I think you make a valid point and as a woman, I think all hate speech like this degrades all women, liberal or conservative.

    What I would like to know however, is why conservatives are spending all their time pointing out other examples of hate speech instead of condemning Rush for his constant attack on minorities, immigrants, poor people, people with disabilities, liberals, women, etc. For 20 years we’ve listened to THE voice of the conservative movement teach us how to reduce a conversation to name calling and pettiness. Rush has ruined the political dialogue in the this country and no one can come close to comparing to his reach or influence. Not Bill Maher, or any of the other random people I’ve seen named as having made slurs against women who I’ve never heard of.

    There are many ways to stand up for women. I don’t think attacking Obama and turning this into a political fight is going to do anything for women, if that was your motive.

    • Sweetpea

      Absolutely. McCain warned Sarah Palin to stay away from these extremists, and instead she has courted them. It’s despicable. The Palin’s cannot help themselves, apparently.

      • Peter Burke

        No, you two are the vile ones. Why are you here?

        Go back under your bridge.

        • sophia jackson

          Your comments – “vile ones” and “go back under your bridge” are exactly kind of thing that I would expect from a Rush follower. I wrote a commentary to Bristol without meanness or name calling. I even said, “I think you made a valid point”. But your response to that is to call me names. It’s like you want a 3rd grade playground fight….

          • kahne

            As a woman who listens to Rush quite frequently over the last 15 years while I sit at my desk and work, those who accuse Rush of all this vitriol and sexism and blah blah blah, have never listened to a word he said….he is being accused of all these things, because he is reading word for word articles that leftists have written in newspapers across the country. “Barrack the Magic Negro” was an article written by a black Los Angeles journalist, which he read on his program, showing the utter hypocrisy and racism of the left….yet Media Matters reported Rush as having coined the term. If you think that criticizing the race baiters like Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson and the biggest anti semite on earth, Louis Farakhan as racism, then you need to get a grip lady….I heard the Sandra Fluke comments and I laughed out loud because I thought the same thing…..a woman begging the country to pay for her birth control and manufacturing the issue that Republicans are somehow going to take away BC from women?? Fluke set womankind back 30 years!!! He called her a slut and he apologized for lowering his standards by using that language….TWICE…but when democrats do it to Bristol or her Mother or to Willow, it is ok, because they are not Democrats. The double standard and manufacturing controversy for the Birth Control issue is what most of us are seeing through….that is why we don’t care about Sandra Fluke with her hand out for somebody to pay for her sex life / ovaries / uterus / etc….get a job and go to Planned Parenthood. Nobody cares about Rush’s comments because he apologized and because we know that he was being absurd and making a joke, just like everyone else does to the Palins….
            Personally women like Sandra Fluke, are sad pathetic creatures, still wanting someone else to take responsibility of their lives from them, thus making them unable to grasp responsibility for their actions….pregnancy is not a disease, and BC is not medicine.

  • kris

    While back in ’08 I didn’t care much for some of your mom’s policies… and still don’t care much for the way *some* in the republican party choose to debate. I must say your post here and the previos one are eloquent and insightfully true. I admire your ability to call people on their negative behavior in a way that remains so positive. I know how difficult it can be to respond to hurtful things without lashing out or being equally hurtful, and you did it!
    So when will you be 35, and will you please consider running for president? please please please? I am tired of choosing between hate and other hate. :)

    • Sweetpea

      LOL. Are you really thinking she’s writing this? Talk about gullible.

      • Justanothermom

        Sweetpea, and you know she isn’t how? Oh yea, because in liberal land no one writes their own stuff they just read from the teleprompter or shit themselves when it screws up!*cough obama*

  • Peter Burke

    Bristol -

    I like the way you say it as it is. Rush was wrong but not nearly as vile as some of the comments I hear here and elsewhere. The folks are truly stunted emotionally.

    Here in Texas talk directed at a woman publicly is dealt with directly. At least from us ‘bitter clingers’. We have a tendency to unload on the trash.

    Your Dad has shown remarkable restraint. However, I do not doubt if he met Letterman, Maher or their ilk in person and they mouthed off as they are wont to do that those individuals would like the outcome. I’d help.

    Stay classy. Your family is remarkable.

  • Susan Seale

    I LOVE you! As I posted to my friend’s page that also shared your letter “shes’s got spunk just like her Momma”! I still have my Sarah sticker on my Van in hopes your Mom would get in this race especially after we lost Herman Cain. Yes Bristol you may have made mistakes but as the Bible says he who is without sin cast the first stone but oh that’s right NObama thinks he is perfect like unto God. I personally along with many others admire that you chose to raise Levi as a single parent and make the best and enjoy years of blessings of what could have been a bad situation. Or sadly like so many like the liberals of whom you spoke would have killed Levi in the womb without as much as a second thought. You hold your head high and continue being a great Mom. God’s blessings on you and your entire family! Praying daily for you!

    • Dave

      Bristol is going to raise Levi? Good luck; LOL! That might be quite a challenge.

    I do not believe they have tapped into something evil. As a strong environmentalist, I am continually offended by conservative comments. As an artist and a Christian, I believe in approaching *every* person with an open mind and a loving heart. It is difficult to be interested in politics with so many condescending jabs and arrogant know-it-all attitudes.

    I absolutely loved both this post and the one directed towards the president. Both times you showed such class and professionalism.

    I can relate to you personally in many ways as I have seven younger siblings, and was born in the beginning of 1991 and graduated in 2009.

    I read your book and it was inspiring to see another person my age with such a grounded view on life.

    One last thing…both your little son and baby brother are absolutely beautiful and adorable. You are very blessed.

    I just seen you picture of you beautiful Brother for the first time and I must say God must love your family so much ,to Bless you with such a wonderful Gift as Trig . He is adorable and i could just hug him.
    Please let the remarks of these less desirables just roll off you back like coming up from a beautiful swan dive..
    You will have more love and joy from Trig then any of us could wish for.
    God Bless you and your family I know” Trig is already blessed.”… Hugs Trig!

  • Sherry Bradford

    People in general put so much passion behind unimportant things. Yes, politics are important, but isn’t it much more important to respect others and their freedom to have their own personal beliefs.
    From your post above :
    Bristol Palin you have some nerve President Obama does not owe you anything your a nobody, a young loose cow with kid!!!!! You and your mom are true idiots your Alaskan Hillbillies so go back in your igloos stay out of the public eye we are tired of your UGLY FACED YOUR SON TOO& BROTHER TOO!!!!
    I mean:
    REALLY???? How much hate went behind actually posting this to someone, about someone and their child, over politics. Some things are not that important. I personally would like to find some happiness in the world without creating more hate. There is enough of that. Re-evaluate what kind of person you want to be!

  • pattie@pattiemyhre.com

    Mr. President should appologize but we know that will never happen – it is all about his liberal base. The crazy left can dish out all the hate and horrible things they say all they want and get away with it over and over. Your brother and your son are beautiful.

  • Kurtis

    Yikes, people are relentless. These people (mostly) don’t know Christ and aren’t asking Him for forgiveness. That being the case, they’ll be dealt with sooner or later. But its so sad to see people attack people for…believing something different? We don’t discriminate against Catholics or Mormons or Muslims. So because politically people dont agree with us they have to attack us? I love it. Bring it on. Feel free to use this saying I’ve made up. “Liberal name calling and harassment is an allergic reaction to facts and logic.”

    Bristol, Obama may find himself a grandfather of an unwed daughter someday and understand your situation a little better. I have been a single mom and a single mom with a disabled son. There are many kinds of handicaps in this world and prejudice is one. The public always assumes that it is black hating whites but it seems that lately it is very much reversed.Obamas’ comment in reference to Trayvon Martins shooting was uncalled for. I am sorry for your loss would have been appropriate. Vanity of how people look seem to be important to him, as well. “if I had a son he would look like Trayvon.” Was that a slam to his daughters? Obama should not even be employed in the public eye let alone the President of the United States. I read your mothers’ book, “Going Rogue”, so I understand why she is not running. Selfishly, I think she or Debra Medina are the only two who could pull us out of the mess this country is in! Stay strong and remember “OUr God is an awesome God! He reigns, on Heaven and Earth!”

  • Alexis

    I find it interesting that you feel justified in attacking the president’s family but feel justified in defending your own. you canplacethis inthe hate category if you want but I ONLY feel SORRY for you. It is the very type of limited thinking and white priviledge only attitude that priviliedged individuals feel the need to express that make me feel that your comment is inappropriate. NOT ONCE has the president attacked your family but you feel it is appropriate to hide behind the publicity and networks established by yours while you have the right the audacity to attack someone else’s. IT is people like you that make me realize that come this presidential election i WILL VOTE #OBAMA 2012

  • Jimi

    You are a vile human being and your mom is one of the worst and least educated people to ever be involved in running for the highest office of our nation. She ran on a platform of hatred, fear, and utter ignorance and she’s obviously passed it on to her children. Your family puts itself in the public eye ad nauseum to suck the last bit of money and fame out of your 15 min, this other young woman spoke out about birth control, something you yourself should have been made more familiar with. She’s a slut for using birth control? What are you for having a baby out of wedlock? I love how you think just because you exist and have an opinion you should be respected, but maybe you would if all your opinions didn’t seem to be your mothers and her supporters. Maybe you should try being a normal person and not sucking on the tit of your mothers fame if you can’t handle the criticism.

  • Renee White

    Bill Maher is such a sad, angry person. But then again, most liberals are. But you know that already. We love you, and your family. You have grown up in front of America, and you should be very proud of the woman, and Mother you have become. I know your Mom and Dad must be proud of you. Keep it up girl, ya doing great!

  • Tim Kelley

    I LOVED THIS! ABSOLUTELY LOVED IT! You nailed it. THEY ARE UNASHAMED HYPOCRITES! Bill Maher is the slimiest of the slimy. Women are an object to be used by old granpas’ like him and hefner. A VERY SAD EXCUSE for an “ADULT” Male. His best work was in the movie “Attack of the Killer Tomatoes”?! not sure about the name…no wonder he become an off color commentator the guy could NOT act …it’s been downhill for him since then. I am still irritated that Matt Damon was so condescending and rude in regard your mother’s candidacy- they were a bunch of predatory wolves attacking her before they really even knew anything about her just because she had an R next to her name. I got a book ecently that has listed all the prayers of the Presidents and many, many, many of them adrress God as Creator. But ALL of the SUDDEN, according to the god of Hollywood, Matt Damon, if you believe in God as Creator you are not fit to be President. Well I guess George Washington acc to Matt was unfit to be President, or Abraham Lincoln…or MANY others….They were just not intelligent enough for Matt. Not ACCORDING TO THIS ARROGANT KNOW IT ALL Matt Damon Who PRETENDS for a living. I won’t take it away form him- he wrote a good movie script with Good Will Hunting and he is a good actor but in reality his little european car in The Bourne Identity would have never made it down the steps without cracking aprt and he wouldn’t have made it through ONE FIGHT he would have got his butt kicked… Maybe he is having a A Bourne Identity Crisis , where he really does think he is invincible. My brother used to do the same thing when he would put on his batman cape as a kid. INt’s sad really. Notice he plays these roles where he is borderline genius…maybe he really beileves he is more intelligent than everyone. Well perhaps the fact that he grew up in a commune in Cambridge MA near Harvard… may have influenced his squeued view of our Presidents faih in CREATOR GOD. He was probably not taught the true history of these great men. (As a side note: If God can make a fully mature man-(Adam), with ther appearance of age, why could he not create a fully developed mature looking universe that in actuality is not as old as people think??)..Well in Matt’s mind…His worldview is “In the beginning was Matt”…and he knows EXACTLY how it all began – Keeep pretending Matt…you are good at it.My brother has been an aspiring actor in hollywood for a long time and has bought into the “groupthink”It is pretty sad that to get ahead you have to totally agree with the powers that be or be marginalized. Back to Bill Maher. I would pay good money to see your Dad and Joe the Plummer in a tag team bout with Maher and Matt. or you can throw Al freanken in there. Your dad give Matt a good manly beating and then say…”HOW do YOU like DEM APPLES?!?” HA!!…All in good fun i am teasing of course…i think. I am thinking about running for the Senate in MN in 2014. I am going to do some comedy like Freanken and some wrestling like Jesse Ventura…and then i should be all good to go to get elected to the second highest office in the country!!!!! And they say your mother didn’t have experience …HA…SUCH a double standard!!!!! Remember TJK for US Senate-Minnesota 2014. you heard it hear first!!!! :)

  • jessica

    It absolutely sickens me how people treat your family. You all are wonderful people, and I speak on behalf of the good hearted democrats when I say that I wish you all the happiness in the world! I am too a single teen Mon, and I really relate to you and think you are a very strong woman. Keep smiling and don’t listen to the evil out there.

  • Erin

    I really don’t care for anything that the Palin family represents. I find them to mostly be uneducated, backwards thinking psedudo-political pundits who stir up controversy in a desperate attempt to stay relevant as their 15 minutes slowly tick away. Despite that, I thought that I would read some of Bristol’s blog and watch an episode of her show (call it morbid curiosity or call it a bored attempt to confirm my feelings for the whole Palin clan).

    What I found was that Bristol Palin is one of the most vile human beings I’ve ever seen. Bristol obviously has no opinions of her own – she systematically spews her mom’s political rhetoric verbatim. She is the biggest damn WHINER on the planet. No one forced you to have children out of wedlock as a teenager! It’s no surprise you’re a single parent. 17 year old boys are not typically known as the most stable people on the planet, which is why having babies with one isn’t generally a good idea. But here’s the other thing — MILLIONS of other people are in your situation and don’t bitch and complain about it. They just move on and try to make better lives for their children. My sister-in-law is a single parent whose (now) ex-husband took off two months before my nephew was born and no one has seen or heard from him since. You know what she did? Went back to college, got an advanced degree, got a better job, took care of her son. You know how many times I’ve heard her complain about her situation? Twice. Know how many times I’ve heard Bristol complain? About 36,000.

    Sheesh, she constantly whines about people picking on her and her family but obviously loves the attention. People who don’t love the spotlight and scrutiny and attention don’t write books, star in their own reality shows and appear on nationally syndicated political talk shows. There are easy ways to solve the problem of poeople “picking on your family” – quit intentionally putting yourselves in those situations. I find it ironic, or more accurately, HYPOCRITICAL, that Bristol wants people to stop scrutinizing her, but has no problem pulling the president’s young daughters into a spitefully crafted blog post about gay-marriage. Don’t tell people to be respectful when you have a blog post about your missing dog and (foolishly) make a tongue-in-cheek reference to the president eating it.

    The Palin family is a modern day example of how our society has allowed pop culture to invade everything in our lives, including our politics. It’s shameful, really. Bristol has a lot of growing up to do. She would be wise to do it off-camera, then she may have a shred of credibility.

      Really? Wow! A simple suggestion for you, get a hobby/slash life. I actually feel sad for you that you spewed for several paragraphs about someone you hold in such a low regard. Why not spend time somewhere you actually enjoy being instead of being so hateful? Cyber anonymous bullying, what a true prize you must really be.

      Bristol keep on keeping on girl!

        Tori and Erin if you think she gets too much face time why are you here? I supposed you feel the NEED to trash someone how about you get a hobby/life demon spawn. She was thrust into the limelight by the campaign but more so by the vile comments she got. And just remember for LIBERALS…their kids are off limits. Act like adults you two judgmental twits. Good for you Kate. Looks like we have to take our country back from the neanderthals that have taken over. We rose above and didn’t say anything back then and now they are going to find out how sick of them we are. BTW trolls Bristols life seems to be going quite well…that would be the best revenge. Loved your Mom’s Big Gulp moment at CPAC Bristol!

      Erin, you nailed it on the head. I watched the first episode of her show and don’t really understand the point? Bristol never went to college, she never had to work a day in her life for anything – everything has been handed to this girl. Anyone see the hilarity in a single mom moving to L.A. staying in a mansion in Beverly Hills to work for a volunteer organization? I mean…come on people, utter nonsense. In no way is her life a struggle – the reason she receives so much backlash is because she is constantly forcing herself into the spotlight, most people are tired of hearing about you Bristol, you are literally famous for being pregnant at 16 while your mother was selected as VP. How can you even be proud of that? I’d be embarrassed if I were Bristol and as Erin suggested I would instead try to prove people wrong by getting an education, earning my own income (not from reality TV gigs) and showing everyone that I am not swinging from my mother’s coattails.

    I would be so proud to be called a Palin, and even more proud to be Sarah Palin’s daughter. We absolutely love your family and think you are all true patriots!!! Your Mom must be soooooo proud of how you and Willow have turned out, as well as, your big Bro and little sister as well. And little I am a mother of a child with Special Needs…Autism. And just read yesterday some terrible comments made by 50 cents and Autism. And even though it hurts for a moment….we have to remember that these people that say such evil and horrible things are obviously very very demonic. So with that said….Try your best not to let it bring you down. In fact, it should be the fuel that ignites your fight. Read Psalm 37!! Love your show, love you, love your entire fam!!! May the Lord continue to richly bless each and everyone of you. Now…..can I move to Wasilla??? I LOVE IT THERE!!!! It has been a life long dream to live in Alaska…and from what I see Wasilla is just the place I would want to be. LOL

    I thinks your family is awesome I wish my family was as loving and fun as yours! Your show is such an inspiration to everybody out there thinking there is nothing to live for. I love how you guys stick together no matter what. So don’t listen to the haters I think what you are doing is brave and it has truly touched my heart to get to see your life and how brave of you to let everybody in like that!!!! Keep doing what your doing you’re awesome Bristol ! Next time you come to Florida I’d love to come to a book signing or hey there is Disney fun here too :)

  • Sami May

    Bristol, you are truly an inspiration to me. I am a young girl who has recently graduated, and I really admire the way you have taken your situation and used it to help other girls. Your strength to withstand everything people say — the horrible stuff about your family, your situation, etc.– makes you someone I look up too. I want to be able to inspire other girls to follow God and trust in Him to bring them through and show them where to go. I didn’t really know what post to put this under– I enjoy so many of them! Please keep up all the posts!…I love our show as well! Prayers go out to you and your family :) By the way….I think your family is awesome, and your little brother is absolutely adorable!

    It sickens me how everyone treats everyone else, especially in the political arena. The hyperbole is absurd on both sides. As for same sex marriage, I don’t see how other consenting adults’ choices have any bearing on me. As for the Bible; it says a lot of weird stuff that people choose to ignore. I don’t really think you are in a position to judge other people’s sexual behavior.

  • The Truth Hurts

    The only reason anyone looks up to a Palin is because they are looking down at you! Most teen moms who choose to keep their child “pay” by way of self sacrifice. Unfortunately, Bristol’s preference appears to be the role of “payee.” She is laughing all the way to the bank.

  • Sad Morals have Disappeared

    The worst part in the negativity of the commentary on this site towards the Palins simply lies in the fact that society has lost it’s sense of what is right and wrong in life. 50 years ago no one would have dared to speak about one another in the fashion they do today. We have become a nation of Haters and non-supporters. When 9-11 happened, this nation pulled together, regardless of race, sexual orientation, political affiliation or who our family was and now we simply don’t bother to even fly our flags…much care about one another, after all we are still fighting a War, does anyone even care anymore about the Soldiers who are still dying for your right to spew the hateful comments you broadcast at will? With all the acts of domestic terrorism happening in our own back yards we have grown into a country that simply sighs and says to one another “such a shame” and turns the channel to some reality television show.

    What will it take for us to come together as a Nation that cares for one another again? Perhaps an incident worse then 9/11, I certainly hope not, but the thought that it takes that truly frightens me. I too am a conservative Christian but I do not hate anyone regardless of who they are. My sister is a lesbian, I love her regardless of her sexual orientation, I love her partner, she is a wonderful woman. They are happy, my sister is happy and that is what is important to me, not who she is or what her choices in life are. So why is it such a stretch to believe that Bristol is honest in her words when she says that her Christian beliefs don’t affect her feelings towards human beings on a humanity level.

    The Palin family is not unlike any other American family, they have their problems, challenges in life and they find a way to work through it together as a family verses the way most people these days do it. Most don’t try to pull their families together, they let it fall apart. I commend the Palins for supporting their daughter when she found out she was pregnant instead of turning their back on her. Just because young adults make mistakes does not give pause for parents to not be the same loving and caring people they were before the mistake, regardless of how they feel about the mistake and in the end the Palins did not alienate their daughter and they now have a beautiful grandson.

    In a perfect world I would love to see people take a hard look at themselves and see their own deficiencies in who they are and stop projecting it towards people they feel “deserve it” because they can’t admit that they are the ones that truly have a problem. I admit what my issues in life are, I face my problems, my family deals with issues openly and honestly. We are conservatives and we have values and morals. We are a Military family that has tolerance for everyone in life, even those who are so ignorant that they have to spend their spare time spewing hatred against others to make themselves feel better. Now enjoy spewing it at me because you have nothing better to do with yourself, because I do. I just happened upon this blog tonight after a few other sites and I wont come back to it.

    Bristol I love your mother, she is a fabulous example of a strong female role model and it shows in her daughter, continue to be who you are and let the hate roll off your back like water, it too eventually dries up and evaporates if simply ignored.

  • mike

    Bristol thank you for the video in another post I caught a moment ago…I for one couldn’t appriciate any trash talk toward you or your family…as for Bill Mar I actually honestly tried to give him a chance, him being a comedian they typically are rude, but when I heard him talking bad about you and your family I knew he was just sick and evil…as for my “republican” family not voting for your mom and disowning me AND not allowing me to vote for your mom…well, I left them far behind as the candlebox song goes.

  • Justamom

    Wow, Darklady, you are incredible but not in a good way.

  • Justanothermom

    Actually I beg to differ. Firstly there is nothing “Dark” about anyone in the Palin family. How can people who are always smiling and have a kind word for everyone be considered “Dark”? And quite frankly, if being happy all the time and being a good person is not “in a good way” I don’t know what is. Oh wait? Did she pick on your messiah? The only thing “dark” and “not in a good way” is Obama’s blatant party pandering and incredulously obvious racism, and ability to be a perfect hypocrite! You go Bristol! Show him for what he is!

  • Bonnie

    I have to say, you are a daughter to be proud of. I am so sick of the main stream media playing onto the hands of the corrupt DC liberal “elite”. THEY are the reason this country is in the mess it is. They are greedy, corrupt and liars! We need someone like your Mom in Washington to clean house! I voted McCain/Palin in 2008, and would again. Obama IS NOT my president and NEVER will be! Your son is adorable! And your little brother is a gift. My youngest grand son was born handicapped. He has Stickler’s Sydrome, which effects his hearing and eyesight. He wears glasses and hearing aides, and was born with a cleft palate. He spent most of his first 2 years in Cincinnati Children’s Hospital with surgeries to correct the palete and a trache. He is almost 7 and in Kindergarten, and is a total joy! Keep your head up high and trust in the Lord. He will see you through anything. God Bless your family!
