Sarah Palin is still whining about the meanie avalanche of criticism she received for posting what she thought was an inspirational photo of her son, Trig, standing on his dog. Her latest gambit is to blame it all on PETA hypocrites for attacking her while supposedly wearing leather.
Last night, Palin visited the Hannity show for some more viciousness.
Palin complained about “the ridiculousness of it all” at the beginning of her interview. She talked tough, saying, “I eat, therefore I hunt,” and “We eat organic but you just gotta shoot it first.”
However, before long, Palin acknowledged, “This one, I have to admit, even though it seems like I’ve seen it all, this one kind of took me aback.
Hannity used the moment to boast about “all the groupers that I caught” he caught while out fishing under the pretext of claiming that PETA wouldn’t like him either. Then he read a comment from PETA that happened to remind us of another Palin debacle: "This bizarrely callous woman who actually thought it appropriate to be filmed while turkeys were being slaughtered right behind her in full view of the camera." If you’ve forgotten about Palin's Thanksgiving turkey pardon #fail, I’ve posted the video below.
Palin groused about PETA:
I guess they don’t know where their leather belts and leather chairs and their crocodile purses - many of the elites who are part of that leftist PETA group – where those come from.
My guess is that they came from cloth. How many PETA members wear leather or carry crocodile purses? I’m going to go out on a limb here and say they are few and far between.
Nevertheless, Palin continued:
…I think what we’ve done is proven the irrelevance of PETA and many on the left because the double standards that they apply – so hypocritical.
Yeah, so irrelevant that Palin can't stop talking about it.
The hypocrisy, Palin claimed, was PETA’s lack of concern for Ellen DeGeneres posting a photo of a (much smaller) child standing on the back of a dog and not getting criticism. But DeGeneres did not post the photo as something to admire and emulate. DeGeneres wrote, “Well that’s one way to reach the sink” as her caption.
Palin, on the other hand, wrote:
May 2015 see every stumbling block turned into a stepping stone on the path forward. Trig just reminded me. He, determined to help wash dishes with an oblivious mama not acknowledging his signs for “up!”, found me and a lazy dog blocking his way. He made his stepping stone.
The other supposed hypocrisy was Mayor Bill de Blasio who accidentally killed a groundhog when he dropped it on Groundhog Day.
But here’s what Palin and Hannity conveniently ignored: Much of the criticism on her Facebook page was not just about the mistreatment of the dog but about her parenting skills in letting the child step on her. Also, many of the comments came from Palin’s fans, not the so-called liberal elite.
But once again, these two proved that personal responsibility is for other people.
