Occupy Lovitz

I frequently get comments below my blog posts which go something like this:

Why do we care what you think?  Aren’t you just some girl in Alaska?

(Okay, so usually there’s more profanity in the comments I receive!)

In other words, people question my ability to have a political opinion simply because I’m not some pundit living in Washington, DC.  And they’re right – I am just a girl. I don’t eat, breathe, and live politics like some.  I’m actually glad my life doesn’t revolve around political debates and the latest on CSPAN.

However, I am seeing a trend.  I’m beginning to see normal, every day people speaking out against what’s happening in Washington.  You know, people who aren’t supposed to have opinions.  People like me.  People like Jon Lovitz. Have you heard this famous Saturday Night Live alum talk about the President?  It’s a powerful statement against President Obama, and this is coming from a man who actually voted for Obama in 2008.

(Warning: Language!  He uses more F words than you might hear in a year, but it’s nothing new for those of you who have been reading my comment threads lately!)

    You tell ‘em Bristol!

  • bellagrazi

    Awesome rant! Hahaha I’ve always loved Jon Lovitz, he’s so effing funny! But now I love him even more. I’m sure this is what 99% of the Hollywood celebrities think, but are too afraid to say publically. Thank you, Jon Lovitz, for being brave enough to say it.

    • K

      If Jon Lovitz drops dead tomorrow I don’t think it will be a “coinsidence”. Think about that other brave man that was willing to speak TRUTH to power (rhymes with Shmandrew Shitebart) who lived in L.A. and his fatal “heart-attack”. Be careful Jon and Bristol.

      • K

        Meant “coincidence”.

      • LMA

        “SHITE – bart”! Ha! Unfortunate. Freudian slip, maybe?

  • Joseppi

    I don’t think people care that you have a political opinion… I think it’s more the hubris that you show when you behave like you know more than those who do have age and experience on you. You frequently spread falsehoods, that I’m quite sure given where and who you live with, you actually believe, and you take on the role of total hypocrite often. So it’s just people calling you out for being uninformed and uneducated on some of the topics you choose to discuss.

    I will give you tremendous credit though for allowing dissenting opinion on your blog and it seems that you are actually reading the criticisms so it takes some courage to allow that. There are many who don’t have that courage and censor their sites. You are young so I hope that you are learning something through this.

    • Jeanne Swaney

      @ Joseppi – “the hubris that you show when you behave like you know more than those who do have age and experience on you…” Boy aren’t we condescending Joseppi! You are doing exactly what you accuse Bristol of doing, behaving as if you know more and “hoping she learns something through this”. I have yet to hear one falsehood, and one instance of hypocrisy. Let’s just keep these holier than thou opinions to ourselves, shall we?

      • Mrs. Sixx

        You obviously have not been reading all of the comments. I posted this one the other day:
        .
        “So, let’s recap. Bristol, here’s what you did:
        You falsely implied that President Obama only chose to support marriage equality because of his daughters’ opinions, and you ignored everything else he said on the matter.
        You cited “thousands of years of thinking about marriage” as a reason why gay marriage is wrong.
        You claimed that “in general kids do better growing up in a mother/father home”, contrary to actual studies about same-sex parenting.
        After people reacted to your statements, your only response was to quote a selection of rude comments and threats you’ve received, and accuse people of “hate and bullying”.
        You then said that they had no arguments against your views.

        And here’s what you did not do:

        You did not acknowledge that you blatantly mischaracterized Obama’s support for gay marriage.
        You did not provide any explanation for your use of tradition as an argument against marriage equality.
        You did not offer any evidence that “kids do better growing up in a mother/father home” or that same-sex parents are inferior.
        You did not explain why that would mean they should be deprived of the right to marry.
        Throughout all this, you gave no further defense of your position on gay marriage.
        Again, while death threats are clearly intolerable and repugnant, this is unfortunately par for the course for anyone of even slight notoriety online, let alone the daughter of a vice presidential candidate. Practically any discussion could be diverted from the issues at hand to how hostile some people are, and you’ve seized that opportunity shamelessly. You say, “Those who claim to be loving and tolerant certainly are hateful and bullying.” Really, all of them? Would that happen to include yourself? I’m sure you can see how misleading it is to accuse literally everyone who supports gay rights – or just love and tolerance – of being “hateful and bullying”, and this argument certainly doesn’t make you any more right.”

        http://zjemptv.tumblr.com/post/23552799952/bristol-palin-not-a-victim-just-acting-like-one

        How’s that for falsehoods and hypocrisy?

        And unless you’ve actually read all of the comments with thoughtful arguments, perhaps you should also keep your condescension to yourself.

        • Michelle

          Excellent response.

        • otlset

          Mrs Sixx here complains of Bristol’s condescension in an extremely condescending post of her own.
          Her post just oozes a certain nasty and irrational animus towards Bristol, almost to the point of derangement.
          I can only come here to post every now and then because I am at work without much extra time for this type of blog posting, and have a busy life away from the internet. But this Mrs. Sixx must have lots of time on her hands to be so preoccupied with Bristol’s blog, and to do whatever she can to spread disruption and try to put Bristol down in her exercise of free-speech and voicing her opinion on topics of her choice here. Real nice lady that Mrs. Sixx, but typical I’ve found of liberals who think they’re just so much smarter and knowledgeable than everybody else and don’t hesitate to show it by putting others down. She’s a bully really, and I believe even liberals are against bullying (or at least they now pay a lot of lip-service to fighting bullying, That is, when they aren’t out bullying someone themselves like Mrs. Sixx here).
          By the way Mrs. Sixx, (and LMA and Allison and Joseppi and the rest of the libs who feel they are actually doing a good thing by trashing others and their opinions here) — your hapless and incompetent Obama is going down to defeat big-time come November, despite the mainstream media’s ongoing suppression of any news harmful to him and shameless boosterism of all things Obama as if it were an arm of the White House publicity machine. He sure pulled the wool over the country’s eyes to get himself elected, but now he has a track record of incompetency, and the country knows it now and will boot him out next election. Get your crying towels now because the Chicago liar in the White House who never does a lick of work as president (he just takes credit for the work of his underlings, and of course reads from his teleprompter) will be rejected by America for a president who actually works at the job of president, rather than continuing to merely cultivate a phony *image*. And in so doing America will be much better off and get back on the track to fiscal responsibility, and honesty in governing (among many other things that need to be turned around).

          • Mrs. Sixx

            Will you just stop addressing me if you have nothing of significance to say? Please!

            All that I have done is provide information to show where Bristol erred in some of her comments. What I said is correct, and you know it, because all that you can do is complain about the “tone”. You then go on a rant direct from Faux News about Obama, using all the same talking points that have been used ad nauseum for the past four years. Don’t you have anything new or useful to say? It’s just so glaringly hypocritical that you call me a bully for posting factual information and then you turn around and try to bully me. Can you not see the irony?

            So run along and quit bothering me. I’m sure you have some tinfoil hats you need to create.

          • LMA

            I don’t trash anyone, otslet. I have yet to see Bristol point to any of my comments as being bullying and over-the-top. You call libs intolerant, but then you call me out just because I’ve expressed a point of view that doesn’t align with yours. You say Mrs. Sixx must have a lot of time on her hands to visit Bristol’s blog, but what are you doing here, then, if you don’t have time on YOUR hands? You visit “every now and then”? Riiiiight. I’m sure Bristol’s got enough fight in her to read our comments without weeping into her mommy’s shoulder. In fact, with her new reality show ready to roll, I’m sure she likes the attention. Just because you can’t tolerate a different opinion doesn’t mean that we need to shut up and stop typing.

  • Danielle

    I love this. Had to share thank you.

  • Stephen

    Good work, Bristol!

  • Melissa Jurgensen

    42% of Democratic KY voters in our primary this week voted “uncommitted” for president this week. That really says something.

  • Mark

    Joseppi,
    Please back up your assumptions with facts. Please show the “falsehoods” that you claim Bristol spreads. Show where Bristol has been a hypocrite. It is easy to throw these claims out there when you do nothing to back them up. I haven’t seen any instances of hypocrisy. I have seen a beautiful young woman admit mistakes, take responsibility, and move forward with her life in a way that would make anybody proud. I am frequently amazed at the depth of her posts, especially at such a young age.

    Bristol, you are an amazing young woman. Your child is blessed to have you as a mother. Keep moving forward with truth and compassion!

    • Ang

      Agreed! :)

    • Mrs. Sixx

      Here you go. I posted this the other day:

      Anything else I can help you with?

  • Georgia

    Lovitz is spot-on and he can apparently think for himself!!!! You go Jon! Bristol, your opinions are important to those who respect you and there are so many of us!

  • Ang

    As far as Joseppi saying “you frequently spread falsehoods” as a function of your age and upbringing, and that you take on the role of total hypocrite, everyone may be reminded that there are sitting politicians, pundits and big media types who have been spreading falsehoods with more political motivation and less conscience for longer than you’ve been alive. A little more accountability on that end should be warranted, huh? :) That being said, Jon Lovitz is a Hollywood guy who has probably made a bit of money and he is telling it exactly how it is. More people there need to jump off the “follower” bandwagon and be brave enough to tell the truth. Hollywood doesn’t exist to fund the Democratic party campaigns nor initiatives (even though George Clooney would disagree). Somebody send out the memo! I’m glad Jon gets this and isn’t afraid to say something about it.

  • Sue Lynn

    Loved it and Bristol you rock….keep them comming!!!

  • LMA

    Jon Lovitz? He has an opinion (you know what they say — a–holes and opinions, everybody’s got one), but it’s not particularly weighty. He’s more the right’s version of Victoria Jackson or Stephen Baldwin. But I agree that it’s always nice to find that a celebrity shares your political opinion. I admit, even with his gorgeous looks and award-winning acting, George Clooney’s politics make him that much more appealling to me.

    • Jeanne Swaney

      Pretty shallow LMA. That’s the reason you go along with his politics, because he’s good-looking? Go buy your People Magazine and please stay out of the voting booth.

      • LMA

        No, idiot. I said it’s ONE of the reasons he appeals to me. “…even with his gorgeous looks and award-winning acting…” Read much?

        • Jeanne Swaney

          Ha, you accuse me of “reading much?” and you don’t even know what you said. No where in your post do you say ONE of the reasons… Very credible there LMA.

          • LMA

            Jeanne, you have a problem with reading comprehension. I wrote, “EVEN WITH HIS GORGEOUS LOOKS AND AWARD-WINNING ACTING, GEORGE CLOONEY’S POLITICS MAKE HIM THAT MUCH MORE APPEALLING TO ME.”

            Let’s break this down: “even with” is another way of saying “added to his gorgeous looks and award-winning acting.” Do you not understand that I like George Clooney because I think he’s handsome and a great actor?

            Now, I followed with “his politics make him that much more appealling to me.” The words “that much more” indicate that I liked George Clooney before, but when I found out he also leaned Democratic, then I liked him MORE. You can then reason (correctly) that I liked him before I knew he was left-leaning. Jeez.

          • LMA

            You tell me to stay out of the voting booth, but I’m not sure any vote you’d cast would be well considered, given your inability to understand basic English.

          • LMA

            And I don’t even know why you’re trying to call me out, Jeanne. If anything, I was posting a comment that demonstrates that, apparently like Bristol and her fans, celebrities appeal to me when we share political views. And if you don’t believe me, then here’s what I wrote: “I agree that it’s always nice to find that a celebrity shares your political opinion.”

      • LMA

        And I’m sure you were a big Jon Lovitz fan before his anti-Obama tirade, right? And if his tirade were pro-Obama, you’d be saying what a has-been he is, just a tool for the Hollywood liberal machine, right? Ol’ Jeanne…nice try.

        • Jeanne Swaney

          Wow, now you’re a psychic medium, you can read my mind LMA! Truthfully, I could care less what Jon Lovitz says, but yes I am glad that he’s seen the light and has spoken out against Obama’s policies.

          • LMA

            Given the number of Republican politicians in the past who were closeted gays but publicly spoke out against gay rights, for example, or Democratic politicians who spoke out on behalf of the working man but behind closed doors colluded with big business, I always temper my appreciation for a celeb’s public opinion with the understanding that I truly have no idea how he or she will vote in that private booth.

  • Trish

    I agree with Joseppi in the sense that you do come off as, ‘I’m right, you’re wrong- la la la not listening’ (& I think that having a mother in the politcal world and most of us do not have any connection to anyone politcal, it encourages this). Yes, everyone is entitled to their own opinion, but at the same time, I feel that listening to others and why they believe in a different way than yours without being judgemental says a lot about a persons character.

  • Colleen D

    Bristol what I don’t get is if they don’t want to know what you think and what your interest are, then why are they following you on your blog or FB??? I don’t understand people that follow people they say they don’t like just so they can get on that person’s site and bash them. Yet they are the first one screaming about bullying. Well isn’t that a form of bullying??? I don’t like Bill Marhr or Kayne West or others so I DON”T CARE WHAT THEY HAVE TO SAY!!!! AND I don’t follow them on FB, Twitter, their blogs or TV shows. So to all those HATERS out there KEEP YOUR HATE TO YOURSELF!!! If you Don’t like Bristol or her mother than STAY OFF THEIR SITES. We who do DO NOT want to read your CRAP!!!!!!

    • Ronda

      Colleen, you said just what I was thinking! Thank You..

    • Lisa W

      Coleen D, those types have no idea how idiotic they appear to the rest of us who make a point of coming to ANY blog, story, opinion piece, read it and then say “Why should I read this, it’s so stupid.” Ookay. So, YOU, The Replier, take your time go GO to a website. SEE a headline, READ the headline, then presumably READ the article and then call the writer stupid — and then wonder why we can’t take you, The Replier, serious? So Coleen, “have pity on the fools” and Bristol, keep building and sharing your outlook. It’s people who actually THINK about what they believe and why who will be the leaders of the future, not the ones who just follow the pundits and don’t know why.

    • Joseppi

      Umm… Just want to make a small point… This blog mostly bashes others… Bristol wants others to read it when she bashes those she doesn’t agree with. And frankly she gets the most attention when she is bashing.

  • Bruce O’H.

    Hey, I’m just a guy in Maryland. But, I thought we were each allowed to have, and express, an opinion, in America. You know, Land of the Free, Home of the Brave?

    Remember this one, “I may not like your opinion, bit I will fight to the death for your right to say it.” ?

    As for the opinions of the Left, they are certainly welcome to them, but I don’t have to give idiocy any credence. And I don’t.

    Keep speaking your mind, Bristol. Because of the unique twists of fate in your life, you now have an opportunity to speak for millions of us who share your values, principles, and views.
    Thank you for doing so :-)

    • Cillab

      What Bruce said!

    • Mrs. Sixx

      “As for the opinions of the Left, they are certainly welcome to them, but I don’t have to give idiocy any credence. And I don’t.”

      This sentence negates what might otherwise be a thoughtful post. Do you not see the hypocrisy in that?

      • Hefmier

        “Mrs. Sixx”, I have seen far more hate and idiocy from the Left than the Right. The cameras don’t lie, and there is a lot of footage. What is interesting is that the footage from the Left’s activities comes from BOTH the Left and Right, and the Left often act like they are proud of what they are filming. Don’t believe me? Case in point: see footage of TEA Party rallies, and then see the ones from Occupy events. The contrast is almost as night is to day. I have never seen any bad things happen at the TEA Party ones (you may beg to differ, but again you would have no valid points anyway, and choose to make up false narratives to defame them, like you choose to come here to Bristol’s blog to defame her, case closed), but the Occupy ones shown plenty of appaling displays of vulgarity. At the Occupy rallies, even simple by-standers have been victims of the attendees.

        • Mrs. Sixx

          Please show me where I have defamed Bristol.

          Please show me where I have made up false narratives.

          What points have I made that are not valid? You’ve not made any points at all.

          If you’ve seen more hate and idiocy from the left than you have from the right, then you haven’t been paying attention. Rush Limbaugh, Michelle Malkin, Hannity, Beck — just to name a few.

    • Lee

      The right to free speech can often backfire. Need proof? Go no further than the Westboro Baptist Church. I’m sure that neither the left nor the right can fully agree with what they do because it hurts both sides in a different way.

  • https://twitter.com/#!/ Juli

    Lovitz Bris. ;o) Looks like they are starting to wake up. I just don’t read the negative ones. Keep them coming there are many of us out here who love it when you share.

  • http://mostlyquestions.wordpress.com Bernard Shuford

    Keep blogging, Bristol. You’ve got a voice. Use it. Don’t change your convictions just to keep those who disagree with you from yelling at you. There’s nothing wrong with disagreeing with people that disagree with you.

  • LMA

    I notice that the celebrities who haven’t really done much lately get a nice name for themselves in the Conservative press by bashing the prez. I don’t see Angie Harmon complaining, though. Or Gary Sinise. Or Clint Eastwood. Or Dean Cain. They’re actors with talent. Conservatives, too. I’m a fan of them all, Conservatives or not. Jon Lovitz — bah. You can have him.

  • Trish

    Just becuase we don’t agree with something Bristol says doesn’t make us some hateful-yelling-bully. Some of us are actual fans, and just becuase we nicely commented, ‘hey, you’re coming off as this way to some of us which is probably why people are reacting a certain way to you’…….doesn’t make us a bully. It’s called informing. Besides, if you’re going to post political things on the web, then obviously there are going to be some differences with certain areas of it. Chill out people.

  • Nicole

    Bristol,
    I just wanted to thank you for your blog posts! Your thoughts mirror mine so often and it’s so wonderful to see other people who think the way I do. Your post about bullying in the name of tolerance and hate in the name of love really struck a chord with me! I have been dealing with the exact same thing, simply because I have a different opinion and speak my mind. I look forward to reading more of your blog posts in the future and you are doing a great job! :)

  • sodakhic

    Lovitz nailed Obama in a later interview saying, Obama bashes the 1%, then goes to Hollywood and Clooney’s 1% party, to raise money, then goes to his Wall St buddies, the 1%, to raise money. Hypocrisy on parade, or steroids. Keep these posts coming, Bristol. If I had a daughter, she would look just like you.

  • Emma Lora

    I like this quote… “You can’t keep a bird from flying over your head but can keep it from building a nest.” All of the angry hate filled ‘wanna be s” keep snarking because they don’t have within them to figure who they really need to be. All they have left is this hate and anger for who knows what. Confused and owners of ugly attitudes will keep at it and what frustrates them is it won’t land in our heads. Loss of contol or the illusion of their control !!

    Love your blog. Stirs thing up doesn’t it . LOL

    • alison harris

      what are you talking about.

    • K

      Emma Lora, that is one of my favorite quotes as well! It’s perfect for showing liberals loss of control or illusion of control! Since I think we speak the same language, here’s one of MY favorite quotes for your enjoyment. “What good are the teeth in your mouth if the salt water taffy is at the bottom of a well?”.

  • BobbyJoe

    Hahaha, now Bristol Palin agrees with a foul mouthed, evil left wing comedian (last week, when he was an Obama supporter). Next thing you know she’ll be supporting Bill Maher, if he says something negative about Obama.

    I wouldn’t change my opinions of Rush (Oxy) Limbaugh, Glen (conspiracy)Beck, Sean(loser)Hannity, or the right’s biggest comedian, Dennis(washed up) Miller if they showered praise on Obama.

    • Paul

      Next thing you know she’ll be supporting Bill (I hate God, and God is also Fake at the same time) Maher, …

        Huh… ?

    • jojo

      she didn’t say anything about supporting him……do you read? all she said was his own team is turning on him…….and that’s the difference between the right and the left, The right will support people who are saying the truth even if it crosses party lines…..the left would eat there own ass before doing that

      • BobbyJoe

        So, what you are saying is…the right will ridicule and slander people (Fox News 24/7) on the left UNTIL they say something negative about Obama. That’s called ODS and you righties have it bad. What are you babies going to do for 4 more year.

        And the right will throw anyone under the bus, like Colin Powell for example.

        P.S jojo, she sure does support Lovitz. NOW.

        • Michael Teuber

          Excellent job completely rewriting “jojo’s” comment! “Jojo” asserted that people on the right are tolerant of those on the right with whom they disagree, or who assert factually accurate statements supportive of those on the left. ODS is a neologism and pseudo-pathology, the philosophical disease in politics is called ‘Dialectics’, and as a convinced Marxist in his youth, the community organizer in chief could tell you all about ridiculing and slandering people just because they oppose you politically.

          Regarding your postscript, the entire point of “Occupy Lovitz” is the rabid antagonism ‘Master Thespian’ faces as a result of daring to criticize ‘Dear Leader’. Not a fangirl rave, this.

    • Medbob

      I have the ability to agree with something that someone says,while disagreeing with other things. That’s the concept of growing beyond “Identity Politics”. While Bristol agrees with what Jon said, I’m sure that she disagrees with the expletives used in expressing it. Given a study in that area, I know that there are things that I would agree with BHO about, say, the necessity for the SEALS to kick butt and chew bubblegum (and I hear that they’re all out of bubblegum).
      That said, there are many things that I agree with when it comes to Rush, Sean, Dennis, Mark Levin, and Michael Savage. There are also points that I have disagreement with them as well.
      If Bristol is anything like me, I’m sure that she has heard things from Maher that are really funny. It’s just difficult and disgusting to try and pick out the kernels of corn from the…..
      Thanks Bristol!!! Keep ‘em coming!!!

      • BobbyJoe

        The difference is Medbob..is that Rush, Levin, Hannity, Savage et al, never have anything positive to say about President Obama. Even when something positive happens that should have bi-partisan support, they always put a negative spin on it.

        I liked Lovitz’s acting before and what he says about politics means nothing to me. He is an actor, you know one of those Hollyweird people that the right hates so much. Whenever an actor comes out in support of Obama..George Clooney etc., the right are screaming shut-up and act or sing (Dixie Chicks).

    Never watch Lovitz… he is spot on the mark. All Obama has got is old class rhetoric right out of the Alinsky playbook, you swap Hope and Change for Fear and Despair… that is all there is.

    Bristol I would wager to bet that those posts too vile to let through are from the top 1% of the 1%’ers. They are protecting their gravy train while we bend under the burden of Obama and his corrupt administration. http://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/2012/05/20/gIQA2ok4dU_story.html

    This is getting pretty embarrassing for Bristol as she is just making a fool out of herself at this point. And to everyone defending her let me ask you this: if she were writing a science blog while clearly knowing very little about science would you not expect the experts to call her out on it? I can just it now ” Gravity? Please that’s just liberal scientists way of trying to keep us grizzly girls down” And some of the comments would from her fans would be ” You Go Girl..God gave you the patriotic right to float as high as you want!” “Bristol – tonight i looked up in the sky and I thought thats the prettiest star I have ever seen and then I realized it was you! Keep Blogging!”

    • Ray

      So who are these “experts” that are calling out Bristol? Maher and the loony left?

    • Michael Teuber

      Please save those with delicate sensibilities the trauma of reading an argument ad hominem to the effect that Bristol is a fool, unless you have constructed your fallacious case perfectly free of misspellings, punctuation and grammatical errors.

      I can just it now” incomplete sentence, missing a verb
      ” Gravity? …down”” note the end quotes before and after the quotation
      And some of the comments would from her fans would be” note redundancy
      ” You Go Girl …high as you want!”” again two end quotes
      “Bristol …Keep Blogging!”” open and close quotes correctly just for inconsistencies sake

      The argument itself depends on a straw man, hypothesizing a Bristol blog that doesn’t exist and attributing qualities to it arbitrarily, ‘confirming’ your original but still arbitrary claim.

    I question those who guestion your ability to give a political opinion.

    • Dittobugs

      Right on.

    Lovitz is right, 50 percent is way too much. Its time for people to understand the problem is not the amount of money going into our gov’t. Its the amount of money comming out.

    As an er, um, well… older lady, I let a couple of decades go by where I went to the voting booth and just penciled in every democrat I saw, regardless of if I knew their record or if they were the shady type that most democrats are. THEN… back in 2007, when an UNKNOWN, COMMUNITY ORGANIZER POPPED OUT OF NO WHERE, AND I MEAN NO WHERE, I started my quest into who this guy was, and who I WAS. That’s when I realized that I not only was a moron for voting democrat for several decades, but that all of the values and morals I had in my heart and soul, were those of the REPUBLICAN PARTY! Was I shocked? You betcha! (LOL) And from the moment of realization that hit me, I then became an a person with a voice.

    I am so glad that you Bristol, learned at a younger age, to become politically involved. As for me, I can be polite or just as rude as the creepy democrats that throw crap my way, and when they do that, I just hit them back with proof that can be corroborated, then I get the usual silence of the lambs. LOL

    Keep up your politcal views and may God bless you and your family!

    Bristol,
    Good for you for speaking your mind! Don’t ever stop. God bless you!

    Bristol, All I can say is this: I respect your Mother and Father and I read your blogs and love your opinions and honesty. Keep it up, there are many of us out here who support you. Thought you might want to read this article on a 16 yr old who voiced her opinion:

    Bristol,
    I’ve been sensing something for some time now. It is something that transcends politics and the ever increasing iniquity we are experiencing as never before. Everything negative that we see taking place around is merely a manifestation of a much larger picture which is emerging and it is going to continue escalating until mankind learns that it cannot govern, sustain itself or ever hope to exist peacefully, UNLESS AND UNTIL, WE REPENT, ACKNOWLEDGE, SUBMIT AND RETURN TO GOD AND LIVE OUR LIVES IN REVERENCE TO HIS COMMANDMENTS, NOT OUR OWN.
    WE MUST LEARN THAT WITHOUT HIM, UNIMAGINABLE EVIL BEGINS TO PERMEATE, METASTASIZE, AND DESTROY EACH AND EVERY NATION, ONE SOUL AT A TIME BY VIRTUE OF MAN’S PROCLIVITY TOWARD SIN: PRIDE, ARROGANCE, REBELLION, LUST, GREED, JEALOUSY, HATRED, IDOLATRY AND DISOBEDIENCE.
    Just as we, if loving, responsible parents, find it necessary to correct and discipline our children for unacceptable behavior, so it is with OUR LOVING HEAVENLY FATHER…….are we paying attention yet?
    How severe do things have to become before we “get” what is happening? What is it going to take to knock us off our self centered, self righteous, arrogant pedestals? How dark and how ugly does this world have to become before we run, BROKEN AND HUMBLE, to the “LIGHT OF CHRIST” for the love, comfort, protection, salvation and hope we so crave?
    Isn’t it ironic that the word “SIN”, which epitomizes the very CORE of what is manifesting, has now become “hate speech”? There is a malevolent stronghold…….a ravenous wolf in sheep’s clothing…….and it is deceiving millions by twisting words and ideologies. Suddenly, there are no absolutes anymore…our values/morals/ethics are skewed and upside down. “Morality”, another dirty word of late, has become merely “relative” to personal opinion and preference rather than possessing any semblance of DIVINE LAW as it’s foundation, But, then again, HOLY SCRIPTURE is now mocked and considered by some to be irrelevant to “modern society” in which the laws of man supersede THE LAWS OF GOD. Are we naive enough to believe that we will not be disciplined for this behavior? Sadly, it has already begun and all I can share from the bottom of my heart is:

    “Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter. Therefore, as tongues of fire lick up straw and as dry grass sinks down in the flames, so their roots will decay and their flowers blow away like dust;
    for they have rejected the law of the Lord Almighty and spurned the word of the Holy One of Israel”__________________________________Isaiah 5:20,24

    Bristol…….you are so precious! Sadly, we are living in a day and time in which hatred, vulgarity and malice are beginning to dominate. It is temporary, but, difficult/painful to experience, nonetheless. There are ppl who are so spiritually empty, they cannot see your heart or comprehend the true essence of your writings. But, happily, there are so, so many who can :) As the LORD leads you, continue to dispel the darkness by continuing to be a light for HIM…….yes, it sure upsets “the enemy”, but,
    it comes with the territory whenever we walk in obedience :)

      …“Morality”, another dirty word of late, has become merely “relative” to personal opinion and preference rather than possessing any semblance of DIVINE LAW as it’s foundation…” –So true!
      Thnx for the great post CJ and God Bless!

    My G-d, that is, quite unintentionally, some the best two minutes of improvisational comedy since Lenny Bruce passed away.
    I’m not surprised that Lovitz came to this conclusion some weeks ago. Privately more and more members of Hollywood’s “1% Club” realize that both the State and National Democratic parties are cratering the economy that is the foundation of the entertainment industry that is the lifeblood of their state.
    It was NO ACCIDENT that “Battle L.A.” was filmed in Bobby Jindal’s Louisiana. Disney relocated a lot of its film resources to its plant in Orange County, Florida PRECISELY because Florida’s business and regulatory burdens are so late. As did Universal. You folks are just deceived by the fact that the two entertainment giants built theme parks around their studios.
    The grips, gaffers, prop guys, stunt men, caterers, etc., who lived in Palmdale, Santa Clarita, La Cieniga, and Thousand Oaks can’t afford to live in that state anymore. They have been under relentless attack by the state and federal governments, led by a party their bosses and the highly paid talent support. So they are slowly moving out of the state.
    Lovitz knows all of this. So do a lot of his friends. They just won’t say it out loud because Right Deviationism can get you blacklisted in Hollywood as sure as the old McCarthyite blacklists did during the Red Scare period in the Early Fifties. Maybe Lovitz escapes because he claims he’ll give Obama another chance or something, but I bet he has trouble getting jobs from here on in.

    Brilliant post, Bristol! Brilliant post!!!

  • Pete

    Bristol, people question your ability to have a political opinion because you are aren’t well informed on the issues, not because of the fact that you are not a pundit living in Washington DC, you would do well to remember that in the future. If Jon Lovitz was dropping F-bombs while criticizing your mother, you would be the first person whining about it not promoting it on your blog. You would be referring to him as a “has been” comedian and criticizing him for using his celebrity status to influence other people, you would call him a HATER! Let’s face the facts Bristol, neither you nor John Lovitz are actually normal every day people…but you are both celebrities. Mr. Lovitz’s statement against President Obama was not powerful, it was totally WEAK! Sorry but any message containing profanity does not deserve to be heard by anyone. You should be ashamed of yourself for promoting such trash, Bristol. This type of offensive language may be nothing new to anyone reading your comment thread, but that doesn’t make it appropriate and it certainly doesn’t make it acceptable either!!! Bristol you are truly delusional!
