First, the media said Trig was not really my mom’s kid.
Then, they claimed my mom said “I can see Russia from my house.”
Recently, they said my parents are giving a divorce.
And now, they’re saying my family started a “drunken brawl.”
Most of the time, I let the lies pass. After all, the truth eventually comes out. But when people are selling “scoop,” photos, and false information… sometimes the truth just isn’t as profitable.
That’s why, after a month and a half of hearing rumors about myself and family, I’ve finally decided to comment about the situation. Instead of listening to all the people who weren’t there — people who claim they heard this from their cousin/brother/sister-in-law/step-daughter/long lost little brother – let me tell you what actually happened.
Our friend got knocked out from a cheap shot from behind. (His injury resulted in ten stitches, so it was really low.)
Why would anyone do this? Well, here’s a hint. The guy was on social media during this incident, tweeting, “about to get famous.”
When Willow saw all this happening she looked at the guy’s mom and said “get ahold of your son.”
But apparently the apple didn’t fall too far from the tree, because his mom pushed Willow. A grown woman pushed my little sister.
By this point, I’d already gotten into the car. But when Willow ran to me crying, telling me that some lady had pushed her down, I got out of the car to go talk to her. Any big sister would do this.
Next to God, family is the most important thing to me. In fact, that day, we’d had a surprise party for my dad. We all secretly gathered in garage and yelled “surprise!” when he walked in. The real surprise was that we’d gotten him a truck too.
But the evening that began so well took a turn for the worse when this guy decided he wanted to “get famous.”
After I got out of the car, I didn’t get far. I never even got to talk to his mom, because a guy in his late thirties or early forties got in my face. He was towering over me – probably at 6 foot something and over 200 pounds. He puffed his chest out and started yelling.
“You c-nt!” he looked right in my eyes and said. “Get the f-ck out of here, you slut!”
I was alarmed that things had gotten so bad so fast. But it got even worse when this guy started pushing me. He had his hands on me, pushing me down. That’s when I swung and hit his face.
Some would say I should’ve never retaliated in defense against him, but certainly he should never have pushed a girl. It didn’t phase him. He pushed me down to the ground and kept me there.
It was scary and awful. He held me down until someone got me out of the situation.
That’s it – that’s the story.
I didn’t “swing and hit him seven times with a strong right hook” as so many so-called news stories have reported. After this incident, I still had a perfect manicure on all ten of my nails. Plus – I’m left handed. I wouldn’t even begin to know how to begin “swinging” at someone.
The incident was scary and infuriating. I had bruises all over me from being pushed down.
This is what I don’t understand. I have mostly stayed out of the public eye for the past few years. I clock in and out of work – yes I actually have a job – like most middle class Americans and chip away at making my son’s life just a little bit easier. So why does the media still choose to put the Palins into an entirely different category of people? This “story” is still running over a month and a half later. Rumors still run wild, unsubstantiated claims are printed as true, and random people who weren’t even there are considered “eye witnesses.”
In the meantime, did you even hear about Vice President Joe Biden’s adult son who kicked out of the Navy for cocaine? (That’s the real Vice President’s kid…) So pause for a moment and consider the hysteria over our stupid “incident”, compared to our actual Vice President’s son not even being able to hold on to a position in the Navy Reserve.
I’m sure you heard the happy news that Chelsea Clinton had a baby. But did you know her father-in-law and Clinton family pal Edward Mezvinsky is a convicted felon because of committing bank, wire, and mail fraud?
Of course, you didn’t. Because the friends and family of the revered liberal elite are treated like delicate China. Don’t handle too roughly. They are precious. They are off limits. Don’t push on them too hard.
In the meantime, I was pushed and held down by some guy… and the media salivates like a dog that’s just been given a bone.
Here’s the thing. Violence against women is never okay… Even if that violence occurs against conservative women. Imagine for a second the outrage that would happen if Chelsea Clinton had gotten pushed by some guy. Had she tried to defend herself, the liberal media would’ve held her up as some feminist hero.
But it wasn’t Chelsea.
It wasn’t Hillary.
It wasn’t someone they liked or someone they agreed with.
It was a conservative.
And once again, the hypocrisy of the media is laid bare.
