Bristol Palin and her mother Sarah Palin publicly commented on the drunken brawl the family recently engaged in. And guess how much personal responsibility they took? Hint: none
In case you missed it, TMZ released audio last week of Bristol Palin’s statements to the police after the brawl. The f-bomb laden recording (embedded below) is summed up in TMZ’s headline: “But Occifer, They Started It ... Says Bombed Bristol.” Even worse, in my opinion, Bristol Palin reveals her five-year old was in the car during the melee. Assuming the kid had adult supervision while his mother was slugging it out at the party, it still brings into question just what kind of “family values” the conservative Bristol and her family thought they were demonstrating.
But to Bristol and Mama Sarah Palin, they’re just victims of those meanie liberals again.
The day after the audio was released, Bristol Palin took to the internet with a post entitled, “The Truth about the “Palin Brawl” – The Media Reveals Its Bias Against Conservative Women Once Again.”
In her post, Bristol recounted the “scary and awful” details that placed blame on everybody else, including someone who supposedly decided to “get famous” on social media. Then came a lengthy rant in which Bristol apparently thought that highlighting misdeeds of Vice President Biden’s son and Chelsea Clinton’s father-in-law was a good way to make herself look better. She continued:
So why does the media still choose to put the Palins into an entirely different category of people?...
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.
…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.
Nope, not a peep of personal responsibility there. But wait, we’ll need two wah-mbulances for this family. Not long after Bristol posted, Mama Sarah Palin took to her Facebook page with another sob story. Sarah Palin laughably claimed nobody had played “the victim card”:
My kids aren’t proud of what happened, nor are they seeking sympathy by playing the victim card – that’s why they haven’t commented on this for all these weeks. Instead, they had to have faith that the truth would come out, despite those who did the cold-cocking actually using social media to brag, “’bout to get famous!” Screen shots of tweets captured their bold intentions, and they’ve certainly enjoyed the publicity.
Looking at the reports, it strikes me as bitterly ironic that the same people who tell us there is a “war on women” have no problem laughing at the recording of my daughter crying as she tells police about being assaulted by a man. I’d like to say shame on the media and those on the left laughing at her or at any young woman in a similar situation, but I no longer think they have any shame.
Nope, not a peep of personal responsibility there, either.
Now, I'll agree that the audio is no laughing matter. But Bristol's language hardly makes her sound sympathetic. And if she was really the victim of an assault, then why didn't she press charges?
I’m surprised the Palins didn’t blame the liberal media for the entire brawl in the first place.
