Bristol Palin has now tasted what some of the countless LGBT she denigrated last week suffer through their whole lives after criticizing Obama's support of legal recognition for gay-couple-helmed families. Though it's always a head scratcher when a bully throw a tantrum after being criticized for their bullying ways, a few of the comments posted to Bristol's blog entry do take it way too far.
Last week, Bristol struck tabloid headline gold when she reacted to President Obama's endorsement of same-sex marriage with an insulting slam. "While it’s great to listen to your kids’ ideas, there’s also a time when dads simply need to be dads," she wrote. "In this case, it would’ve been helpful for him to explain to Malia and Sasha that while her friends parents are no doubt lovely people, that’s not a reason to change thousands of years of thinking about marriage. Or that – as great as her friends may be – we know that in general kids do better growing up in a mother/father home. Ideally, fathers help shape their kids’ worldview."
Thousands of comments flooded Bristol's blog, with some commenters parroting posts with an unfortunately common refrain heard by the LGBT community: go kill yourself.
Newser curates a few of the unbecoming comments:
"bristol: kill yourself you fat fuck," reads one comment. "you are offensively stupid," reads another, "you're an argument for abortion. your child would be better off without you to 'guide' it through life." Still another tells her that "You all, including your son, deserve a slow, painful, and miserable death."
Bristol blasted the bullying in a blog entry posted last night and vowed to, wait for it, continue bullying LGBT families and remaining strong in her campaign for discrimination.
Here’s a news flash, guys. Your hate and bullying don’t work. People see through it, and they don’t like to be pushed around. You think it’s completely obvious that you’re right, but this younger generation is more pro-life than their parents, and voters just keep defending traditional marriage. Why? Why would we if you’ve been telling us what to think for all these years?
Because we think for ourselves. And we’ll keep thinking for ourselves no matter what you call us. So keep sending the hate, but realize that hate doesn’t win arguments.
Hmmm. Perhaps Bristol should take a bit of her own advice? Well, on second thought, if she was any good at practicing what she preaches she would've remained abstinent and never penetrated pop-culture to begin with.
