Bristol Palin has some profoundly stupid thoughts on abortion, of course

bristol1

Bristol Palin was on a blogging bender yesterday, and she brings out the rage-monster in me. I’m sorry if I’m offending people, but I just can’t even start with all of the gentle think-pieces being written about how Bristol is being “slut-shamed” or how we need to go “easy” on Bristol. NOPE. She’s a hypocritical liar. She’s a douchebag. And she’s an a—hole. Bristol posted the above photo yesterday as part of her blogging bender, because this too is probably some “response” to all of her “haters”. Bristol carries a big shotgun. Bristol doesn’t pick up her cartridges because littering is for winners. She actually had the audacity to blog about that Ted Cruz-gun photo “controversy” right after she posted this too. She also posted the same photo on Instagram with the caption: “She is clothed with strength and dignity; she can laugh at the days to come. Proverbs 31:25.” Oh, Jesus.

As we’ve said before, Bristol can’t even get her story straight about whether her second unwed pregnancy was an accident or whether she “planned” it. She also hasn’t bothered to come up with a lie about exactly who the father is. But she did have time yesterday to write a blog post called “When Killing Babies Is More Important than Women’s Health.” Her blog post is just for Bristol’s thoughts about the SCOTUS decision to issue of stay for the state of Texas’s legislation to shut down more than half of the abortion providers in Texas. The Texas legislation, HB2, was part of the years-long anti-choice crowd’s agenda to attack reproductive choice through access to constitutionally protected services. As in, there has been a very focused effort to create crazy rules, regulations and faux-medical addendum to the process of termination in the hopes that abortion providers will simply collapse under the weight of all the excess regulation. Most of the new “regulations” are simply being created with that aim, to shut down abortion providers. The aim is not to “protect women.” The best way to protect women is to trust them to make their own reproductive choices and provide them sexual education, inexpensive and quality medical care and access to affordable birth control. But I digress. Let’s hear Bristol’s thoughts on this matter.

In another outrageous move this week, the Supreme Court temporarily blocked a common-sense abortion regulation in Texas. After the elected representatives voted to enact laws to protect the health of women and unborn children, 5 unelected judges are once again putting their policy preferences above those of the American people.

The Associated Press Reports: “The Supreme Court refused on Monday to allow Texas to enforce restrictions that would force 10 abortion clinics to close. The justices voted 5-4 to grant an emergency appeal from the clinics after a federal appeals court upheld new regulations and refused to keep them on hold while the clinics appealed to the Supreme Court. The Supreme Court order will remain in effect at least until the court decides whether to hear the clinics’ appeal of the lower court ruling, not before the fall.”

The court’s decision to block the regulations is a strong indication that the justices will hear the full appeal, which could be the biggest abortion case at the Supreme Court in nearly 25 years. While celebrities like Lena Denham are celebrating the Supreme Court’s decision in the name of choice, what is happening here is placing the murder of babies on a pedestal.

Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton issued the following statement: “The Highest Court in our country just put Texas women in harm’s way. HB 2 ensures abortion clinics and doctors meet basic health standards if they choose to operate their businesses in Texas. Today’s delay subjects Texas women to substandard care all to the benefit of the abortion industry’s bottom line.”

How can these pro-abortion advocates claim to be pro-women when they won’t even support laws that are designed to ensure women get safe and quality health care? And they call me hypocritical!?!

[From Patheos]

I really hate this, you guys. Her stupidity is dangerous. You know what will subject Texas women to substandard medical care? When more than half of the abortion providers – the same clinics that also offer sex education, pap smears, cancer screenings, birth control and prenatal care to mostly lower middle class and poor women – are put out of business because Texas Republicans wanted to find a backdoor way to simply punish women for having sex. Republicans all around the country want to punish women for having sex. And when I say “women,” of course I mean “every woman other than Bristol Palin, who is somehow immune from all criticism.” The simple fact that Bristol is too stupid to even understand the concept of her own reproductive CHOICE is beyond me.

    “In another outrageous move this week, the Supreme Court temporarily blocked a common-sense abortion regulation in Texas.” For some reason, when looking for common sense, I do not look to the rants of an uneducated bigot who can’t hold a job or figure out how to use birth control. And stop name-dropping celebrities, nobody but you cares what Lena Dunham has to say on any subject.

    • Kitten says:

      +1,000,000

      It’s shit like this that prevents me from having even one ounce of sympathy for this terrible person.

      Also, I could never ever live in Texas.

      • Lilacflowers says:

        I really couldn’t either but I almost grew up there. My dad turned down a job offer in Texas when my mom was pregnant with me because, pretty much at the last minute, she decided she didn’t want to raise her kids far away from her family in Boston.

      • Kitten says:

        Oh man. Close call! Glad you ended up in Boston instead :)

      • Size Does Matter says:

        Hey! Texas isn’t all bad. I’m here. :)

      • Algernon says:

        Keep an eye on Texas, it’s about to undergo a political sea change that will be very funny to watch. Austin, the little blue dot in a sea of red, is exploding population-wise, and it’s wildly democratic/liberal. As millennials begin entering the heights of our political power, and as Austin’s liberal population grows exponentially, Texas is going to shift. I can’t wait, because I actually love Texas and would like to encounter less aggressive idiocy when I visit.

      • Lilacflowers says:

        @Size, and it gave us Lyle Lovett and Nanci Griffith and Molly Ivins.

      • Kitten says:

        Austin should secede! Just kidding.

        @Size-It’s not Texas, really, just its politics that I take issue with.

        Texas also gave us Texas toast and Kiddo’s #1 All-Time-Celeb-Crush-4-Eva Matthew McBongany.

      • Lynnie says:

        Actually cities like Dallas-Fort Worth, Plano, and Austin are not that bad. I used to live there when I was little and all the cities were beautiful! The people were nice and friendly, and the cities were really metropolitan. My understanding is the rest of Texas is a joke though.

      • doofus says:

        Algernon, I’ve read similar things from a lot of political analysts…they predict that Texas will be “blue” within 10 years.

      • Algernon says:

        @ doofus

        I don’t think it will take even that long.

      • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

        I lived in Texas twice. I absolutely hated it, but it was when I was married to The Shrimp, my first husband, and he was sleeping with everyone he met there. Also, it was so hot that my heels sank into the road because THE ROAD WAS MELTING. I would just look around and think “the road is melting and nobody but me is panicking…” But I digress. I was just going to say that I didn’t find the people to be all Bristol Palin conservative. They were actually nice, for the most part. So this surprises me about all of the laws. Maybe I was just too miserable to notice.

      • FLORC says:

        GNAT
        I’ve had my heel sink into pavement before in New England. It happens :)

        IMO This ignorance is from people who have control/insecurity issues. Or from those who do not feel they need to hear the other side of the argument/do not have the mental capacity to understand the other side.

        Lilacflowers
        Awesome.

      • kcarp says:

        I live in Texas, I do not own a gun, I believe in a women’s right to choose, I support gay marriage. I do not live in Austin or anywhere close to it.

        People in Texas are generally not ignorant, racist, homophobic, we do not wear cowboy hats to work, or ride horses to town. The generalization that Texas is bad because they vote Republican is as ridiculous as saying a state that votes Democrat is good. People tend to forget that Texas was blue for many years.

        Texans generally believe that they are Texans first, American second. Right or wrong that is the mindset.

      • Marty says:

        Kitten, does this mean if I leave Texas me and my kitties have a place to crash in Boston? ;)

        My city of Houston was also the first to elect an openly gay mayor. You don’t realize how ass-backwards this state is until you start talking about it’s politics. I’m desperately hoping we can get an appeal on the restrictive abortion laws. A lot of the places closing provide really affordable healthcare to women.

      • Anne tommy says:

        I won’t ask why you called your first husband The Shrimp GNAT. But I get the feeling it’s not flattering…Bristol is an idiot. She should sort herself out before having the cheek to lecture others.

      • Kitten says:

        @Kcarp. Fair enough and point taken but I don’t believe I made the generalization that “Texas is bad because they vote Republican” in my comment. But yeah, Texas’s political and cultural differences are worlds away from what I’m used to. Am I allowed to say that?
        “Nice people” is great, but it’s not enough of a reason for me to want to live somewhere.

        Now I must admit, I do think Texas gov. Rick Perry is the Anti-Christ. Perry, you know, the guy who just referred to the Charleston shooting as an “accident”. Texas-R Rep Joe Barton, who tried to strip away tanker safety requirements and oil spill protections from Puget sound (and everywhere else BTW), Texas Rep Louie Gohmert who said that if the principle at Sandy Hook had a M-4 in her office that maybe it never would have happened. I mean, I have two close friends who were born and raised in Texas, and both of them say that Texas is insane when it comes to women’s rights and nuts when it comes to gun control.

        None of this means that Texas does not have great people or great cities or that it isn’t a beautiful state.

        But Texas has a political record that’s impossible to argue with. I don’t think the truth should be seen as offensive nor should anyone interpret my comments to mean that where I live is somehow better than Texas for anyone else BUT me.

        If Texas is changing politically then I think that’s awesome. I’m all for it. But you know what? I still wouldn’t live there. I wouldn’t live anywhere where I need to have a car. *shrugs*
        So my opinion isn’t just based on politics, people.

        @Marty-ABSOLUTELY! Any time. I even have a place for you to crash. And maybe I’ll even share Hardy with you if you’re nice ;)

      • Marty says:

        It’s more then fair Kitten. I’ve lived here most of life and I am in complete agreement with you. Call a spade a spade.

        You know the sad thing about Rick Perry? He’s not even half as bad as our current Governor Greg Abbot. :/

      • Lilacflowers says:

        @Marty, you and your kitties are welcome in Boston any time. Just don’t expect smiles from the locals. We must maintain our gruff image, even though we’re all softies. And I’m with Kitten. I can’t live anywhere that requires a car. Yes, I have one but it isn’t unusual for it to sit in its parking space without moving for weeks at a time.

      • Marty says:

        Thanks Lilac! I’m so jealous y’all don’t need cars. I live in a city with over 4 million people, it takes an hour and a half just to get across town sometimes.

      • Veronica says:

        While it is a more conservative state, Texas isn’t quite the bloody steak it wants America to believe it is. Plenty of moderates, liberals, and less fanatical conservatives down there, but like most states, it’s been gerrymandered to hell to ensure the supremacy of one political party.

    • Shambles says:

      She sounds just like Sarah– name dropping for shock value. Just regurgitate what your mother has been telling you all your life, little sheep. I mean no disrespect to mothers and their wisdom, but she is the exaggerated personification of everything that frustrates me about some of the people from my small, southern hometown. They grew up hearing that things were a certain way, and that’s the way it is. Don’t question me, you’re disrespecting my beliefs. Freedom of speech. Murrica.

      I’m so glad for teachers and other influences that nurtured my drive to ask questions and develop a mind of my own. Bristol’s robotic wingnut regurgitation is infuriating and sad.

      • Lilacflowers says:

        The whole name-dropping thing is really, really annoying. Seriously, Lena Dunham is a spokesperson only for Lena Dunham but the likes of the Palins are name-dropping her all over the place, just as they did previously with Rosie O’Donnell and Michael Moore.

      • Esmom says:

        Yes, the name dropping is a classic Palin tactic. She and her mom seem to love pitting people against each other, just stirring up s%^t whenever and however they can.

    • Liberty says:

      Applause for Lilacflowers, Kaiser, and Lori, Shambles, Kitten…..

      This self-important, uneducated, hypocritical little fake just keeps on giving.

    • lizzie says:

      lilacflowers – i love you and this^^^

      no one has ever been more right about anything than you are about bristol palin!

    • Katenotkatie says:

      No matter that medical practices like plastic surgeons’ and proctologists’ offices DON’T need ANY of the requirements being placed on abortion providers by these laws. I love (to hate) how anti-abortion arguments always try to utilize the “women’s health” angle as if a) an abortion is the single most dangerous medical procedure a person can undergo (spoiler alert, it’s not), and b) abortion providers don’t also provide other SUPER VITAL reproductive health services like cancer screenings and Pap smears. As if people as really that ignorant. As a result, you end up with a situation like in South Texas, which has the HIGHEST rate of cervical cancer in the entire country, yet has its reproductive health centers systematically shut down. Oh yes they’re all about women’s health. End rant.

  3. Jenns says:

    I guess I should be pissed at her comments, but she is so irrelevant that i don’t even care. Seriously, name one thing that she has actually done with her life besides dumb reality shows and getting knocked up twice by two different men.

    • MinnFinn says:

      One thing she has done – can’t think of anything.

      But here is something she did not do – she did not write that blog post. She objects to abortion but the rest of it – come on — she didn’t finish high school. BP has no clue about how the Supreme Court operates and she certainly does not monitor their docket to know that this abortion case was being heard.

      • GingerCrunch says:

        She MIGHT have written that last sentence? Maybe?

      • Leelee says:

        You are soooooo right! She didn’t write one word of that. If she was engaged enough to note all of that judicial activity she would also know how f****d up it is that someone attributed all that rhetoric to a girl – who in a parallel Palin world would be on the receiving end of a finger wagging “shame on you”.

      • MinnFinn says:

        Thanks for the laugh and good catch GC! And I bet she also added the extra punctuation [!?!] to the last sentence.

    • Otaku Fairy says:

      That. and parroting the same old tired bigotry passed down to her from her parents and ancestors. She’s such a puppet.

    • stoner says:

      She has had a ghostwriter on her blog since it’s inception – her name is Nancy French.

  4. Sixer says:

    I love it that she gets your goat, Kaiser. Go for it. Bristol Palin to Kaiser is as the BRF to Sixer!

    True story: my cousin lives in Houston. I visited one time when she was pregnant and went with her to an ante-natal check. There were armed guards (more than one) at the clinic door. “WTF?” I said. “It’s because he does abortions,” she said.

    Mahousive culture shock for me.

    • Kiddo says:

      That happens here too. Different regions of the US can be so different culturally and politically, it’s like visiting another country.

    • Lilacflowers says:

      Yep. Some people here have so much “respect for life” that they are quite happy to murder doctors and receptionists and anyone else who is in their sightlines.

      • Kiddo says:

        The lead photo with the gun is a subliminal message sent by Kaiser.

      • Liberty says:

        This. Babies grow up into people with opinions and lives —- but who cares about them, apparently.

      • Algernon says:

        It’s not about human life at all. Anti-choice advocates don’t give a fig about human life. As Kaiser said, it’s just about punishing women for having sex. If they really cared about the childrenz, they would support social services and public education and all the many things it takes to raise healthy, well adjusted children. But they don’t. They just don’t want women having sex “like men.”

      • Pinky says:

        @Algernon Actually, the anti-choice folks (read: the people with some education and money, i.e. generally those in power) are more about population control and lining their pockets. The prison industrial complex would collapse if women had more access to birth control, family planning, etc., and women and men of color had equal opportunities when it came to education and accumulating wealth. AND THAT. CAN’T. HAPPEN. It’s economics, people! Our country thrives on a lower class corralled into prisons, which is the new slavery. The chattel of the underclasses are keeping our economy afloat and keeping the wealthy wealthy. If there were fewer poor, well then, the wealthy would have to find someone else to exploit. It’s another reason why the wealthy keep racism going–it’s less about being bigots, it’s about economics. They just feed the white lower-class’s fears about black boogeymen so the ignortati will do all the leg work for them and maintain the politically-sanctioned institutional racism that keeps our country great. /rant

    • Sixer says:

      I think you read about this stuff – like this post on here, for instance – but it’s a completely different matter when you see it for yourself, in action, as it were. IYKWIM. I spent the rest of that day feeling a bit sick inside, with my cousin telling me the only way to combat it is what she’d done: actively choose a doctor that performs terminations as her OBGYN.

      • Lilacflowers says:

        Twenty years ago, a mentally unstable man attacked two clinics in the Boston area, killing the receptionists in each and wounding several other people. He was convicted, appealed, and committed suicide in prison, which, on a technicality erased the conviction. There are websites devoted to holding him up as a hero and claiming he was innocent of the murders he committed, while admitting that he did kill the two women. It is sickening.

      • Kitten says:

        Yeah I remember going to Planned Parenthood when I was in my early twenties to get Plan B after a condom broke. There were tons of aholes holding up signs of aborted fetuses and shit at the entrance to the building. It was already an uncomfortable and scary feeling to be there but those nut jobs made it so much worse. I guess that’s their motivation though.

        But that just goes to show you how wide-reaching the anti-choice network is. Even in a relatively liberal college town like Boston, you can find these wackos.

      • Sixer says:

        Like I said below, we do have anti-abortion demonstrations outside clinics here, but I think the situation vis a vis emergency contraception might be a bit different? Here, you can go into literally any pharmacy and just buy it for about £25, no questions asked. And if you don’t want to pay, your GP, most hospital emergency departments and any NHS walk-in clinic would prescribe it to you for free, no questions asked. You wouldn’t have to go anywhere “special” (ie noticeable) to get it.

      • Lilacflowers says:

        @Sixer, emergency contraception was illegal here until recently.

      • Sixer says:

        Er… Lilac, I don’t know what else to say other than “blimey”!

    • Vampi says:

      Sadly..in 1986…I had to get a VERY large bodybuilder type friend to help me escort my best friend.. at the time..past the vile, sometimes physical aggressive protesters in Pittsburgh to get her into the clinic for her procedure.
      He blocked all the arms trying to shove graphic photos at her, while I held her to my chest and covered her eyes and ears ( horrible vile things!) as best I could till we got inside.
      That was the most agonizing decision she had ever made. No one knew why she was there, or her personal details. They just wanted to call her a murderer and scar her even more than she already had been.
      I will NEVER forget that day…….and as long as I breathe, I will fight for a woman’s right to choose or else I don’t want to live on this planet any more.
      *sigh*

      • aims says:

        In the state of Oregon your reproductive health rights are firmly protected. We even have additional laws covering any property damage to an clinic that provides abortion. We also just had a bill signed by our governor allowing birth control to be given in a twelve month supply once a year. so when I hear about other states cracking down on women’s health care rights, it’s shocking to me.

        I feel that there’s a war on women right now in parts of this country. Bristol Palin is an asshole for many reasons and her blatant arrogant behavior and hypocrisy is disgusting. She and her family are total trash and bottom feeders.

        She and anyone who wants to take choices away from women can kiss my liberal, lefty ass.

      • Jenna says:

        The hatred is just… terrifying. The only comfort I have ever managed to find is in knowing the truly STAGGERING levels of idiocy that follows along with most of it. (Seriously, at times you have to laugh to keep from crying. Here in Akron there is a church group that has been planting themselves in front of a clinic and screaming for 7 YEARS. Why laugh? They are actually protesting a podiatrist’s office who with sweet resignation allows them to confuse his slightly differently spelled name with that of a doctor who works for a PP clinic on the other side of town. The office building also holds the lease office for the company that owns the building the actual clinic is in. That is all that is required for the idiots. No one has ever even gone into the leasing office OR the podiatrists to actually find out if it IS a clinic. Not once. I checked. They stand outside screaming their hate at a rental office and a foot doctor. God help you if you need to get your shoe inserts AND drop off a rent check!)

        Thank you for being so amazing with your friend. I wish I had planned as well when I had to take in a college roommate who’s ex had drugged her and had his friends all take ‘their turns’. She was in 7 kinds of hell from the assault to start, was told by her doctor (I was with her when she found out) it was unsafe for her to keep the baby and went through a lot of pain to make the only choice that would keep her on the planet (something we had to fight to get her to want in the first place) and that gauntlet was just…. evil. Vile to the point of seriously wondering what had been done to these people that they could be such hateful horrible people. I stupidly thought my pissed off Amazonian backside would be enough and I was very nearly terrifyingly wrong.

        I ~did~ however manage to find a few massive lad friends to help me go have a slight… ‘talk’ with her ex and his friends though later. But if I had your smarts I would have had them take us to the clinic not just for protection but also to get them more… intent in how and why they needed their chat with the pieces of human crap who assaulted her and then put her through that gauntlet of hell.

      • Meghan says:

        I went to a Planned Parenthood to get the Depo shot (and I’d had my abortion there a few years before, but that was not the task on this particular day) and there were protesters outside and an RV/camper like thing, and this teenage girl comes up to me asking if I would come into the RV and get an ultrasound and I am all “no, thanks” and of course she starts on about protecting life and blah blah blah. And I am standing there thinking “why in God’s name would I go into a creepy RV with a person that I DO NOT KNOW and allow you to perform a medical procedure on me? God only knows what kind of “ultrasound” you would give me and where those things have been.”

        I will fight until I die for a woman’s right to choice and no one will ever shame me for having an abortion, and the best part is that I actually prayed about my abortion and had very little side effects/cramping, and to me, that was my sign from God that I made the right decision.

      • Vampi says:

        @Jenna- It wasn’t so much that I was smart…I had just seen recent news reports where protesters at that very clinic were out of hand… and I knew that I was taking her there in a few short days, so I called in our local “hulk” to go with. Bless his gentle heart and bulky bod! He is forever a hero! (and a state policeman now.)

    • Wren says:

      When I was in college an anti-choice group had, no joke, 10 foot tall pictures of aborted fetuses on display on the quad and were shouting a bunch of nonsense about their cause. Very, very graphic pictures and more than one of them.

      I remember being horrified that they were allowed to do this, but I’d just had a reproductive physiology class where we looked at fetal mutations, so the shock and awe was lost on me and my classmates. We actually decided to open our textbooks and loudly exclaim, “Look! We have gross pictures too! Look at these fused piglets!!!! Here’s a calf with legs growing out of his head!” They were not amused, which amused us greatly.

      They were also calling for people to join their planned picketing (i.e. yelling at patients) of the local Planned Parenthood. If you have to resort to gross pictures, yelling and violence against other people to “prove” your argument, you never had much of an argument to begin with. These people make me sick.

      • Kitten says:

        “If you have to resort to gross pictures, yelling and violence against other people to “prove” your argument, you never had much of an argument to begin with.”

        Exactly. But this is the right-wing extremist standard scare tactic. They do this for everything because fear and shame are the only tools they really have.

      • Sixer says:

        We also have demonstrations outside abortion clinics – mostly in London, which has the only significant number of evangelical Christians in the UK – albeit nothing like some places in the US. The government is currently looking at creating buffer zones around clinics where these people can’t go, after a big campaign. Can’t come soon enough for me.

      • Lilacflowers says:

        We’ve had bumper zones here in Boston for years but the Supreme Court struck down the Massachusetts buffer zone law last year.

      • Wren says:

        @Kitten: Very true, but fortunately the shock tactics do wear thin in the absence of an actual argument. Not fast enough for my tastes, but eventually you need something to back it up or people will simply stop paying attention. There’s only so much you can do and so far you can go before people get tired of it.

        I can only hope that will happen with the anti-choice crowd. They’ll scream long enough about DED BEHBEHS! that people will just start shrugging like, “eh, whatever”.

      • Kitten says:

        Agreed, Wren.

        Sigh.

        This site is such a sanctuary from the madness.

      • Marine says:

        3 years ago I was in D.C with a group of French teenagers,we were on Capitol Hill and met those loons with their pictures of dead foetuses!
        One lady even grabbed one of the girls by the arm ,telling her that sex was a sin and basically verbally abused the poor girl who was 16 and didn’t understand of Much of what was said to her ! When I translated her what the lady has said, the only thing the poor girl was ” is it because I look like a slut?”

        That was a massive culture shock ! Here in France the morning after pill can be given by the School nurse! We do have our religious zealots * catholic tradionalists* but they ‘ve Never killed anyone as far as I remember!

      • Kitten says:

        @ Marine-Because France has been able to achieve something that the US has not and probably will never achieve: a true separation of Church and State.

      • Tarsha says:

        And the pictures never truly represent the actual stages, ie when they are terminated. Most anti-choicers use almost full term babies as pictures. It is dishonesty at best, emotional manipulation at worst.

    • Belle Epoch says:

      WHOO HOO! Great post, Kaiser! I am SO with you on this.

      Do we really believe BP wrote this? She never graduated from HS and probably does not know what SCOTUS even is.

      Personally I think she had an abortion back on DWTS when she got BIGGER in the middle instead of smaller. Her explanation was the usual traffic accident of convoluted lies:

      Pro-lifers have no problem making an exception for their personal circumstances while condemning abortion for everyone else. Yes, this is a sweeping generalization. But there are plenty of examples of total hypocrites.

      I really don’t enjoy the concept of abortion, but having the option is VITAL for American women! Even dumbass Sarah Palin said she CHOSE to have Trig (another lie, since she was never pregnant with him in the first place).

    • velvet says:

      Oh great reply!

    • Original T.C. says:

      She also learned from her mom how to distract the public. Get knocked up by an unknown man before your wedding/cancel your wedding in shady manner/ write blog post disappointed implying your family and friends are disappoint in your pregnancy/be called out as a hypocrite? Well just distract the public and get your people back on your side by dropping the abortion bomb. Followed by another post about abortion. Let me guess, the next post will also be about abortion right Bristol? Don’t look over here, look over there quick: abortion.

    • mtngirl says:

      Perhaps she got pregnant on purpose by Mr. Military to get long-term benefits for her child. Nothing like making a career out of scamming others. She’s had a great role model for that.

  6. Detritus says:

    I feel your pain/rage.
    She’s been handed all the pieces to make logical decisions, but nope.
    I almost wish some GOP idiot did publicly and loudly slut shame her, so she could feel what many women who don’t have power go through.

    I doubt even that would teach her empathy though, she seems immune to personal growth

    • Otaku Fairy says:

      They won’t slut-shame her because she’s an upper class white republican they want to shield from “The evil Liberal Media.” I bet you some of the tradional values groupies who don’t want to shame her are some of the same bigots who have no problem leaving those nasty judgmental comments you’ll see on other popular celebrity gossip sites whenever more liberal female celebrities get pregnant before marriage, especially if one or both of the baby’s parents are not 100% white. One conservative female MRA wrote a post defending her, when usually her argument is that any woman who has a baby without being married to the father first is a ‘selfish slag’. I won’t link to it or name her, because I don’t want the bigot or her pathetic site to get any more attention.

      It’s the same sort of thing with the Duggars though: Race and political affiliation allow the parents and Joshua to be defended by their political allies because NOTHING can be allowed to interfere with the backward “Return to good ole’ traditional ‘Murrica” political agenda.

      I’m not saying that Bristol having a baby out of wedlock compares to what the Duggars have done at all, she really doesn’t have ashamed of that.- I’m saying in both cases you have people rushing to defend and protect political allies who have done something they consider wrong and will usually criticize harshly.

  7. Jen43 says:

    She brings out the rage monster in me , too. I have googled old stories about her, and the one constant is that she is a complete liar. She gained like 25 to 35 pounds when she did DWTS the first time. She claimed she only gained 5 and didn’t lose any weight like every other contestant in the history of DWTS because she was in such good shape from high school basketball that the 8 hour dance rehearsals were a downgrade for her. Meanwhile, pictures don’t lie and pregnancy rumors flew. There are some who believe that this is actually her 4th out of wedlock pregnancy.

    I am convinced that she is looking for another reality show. I also think that she may have some Octomom issues.

    • Christin says:

      I never heard those rumors until digging into some blogs the other day. Just before that, I read an article that included a photo of mama grizzly posing with her during DWTS. Her puffy appearance was startling, given how most contestants look thinner and more fit.

      I share your opinion about the reality show. She would jump at the chance to make money and stay in the spotlight.

      • Jen43 says:

        I think we found the same blog. Ha I mean the weight gain issue is ridiculous. If she stress gained 25 pounds, then just admit it. Instead, she covers up lie on top of lie.

        I also found it interesting that in previous interviews she talked about adopting a baby from Haiti and also about how she couldn’t wait to give her son a sibling when she was dating some other guy. I am not sure I believe she was pregnant more than twice, but she does seem to have some real issues.

      • GingerCrunch says:

        Ugh. First I’ve heard of this and it’s horrifying, if true. There’s some twisted pathology going on with her and it’s a result of being raised by Sarah, imo. I would truly feel some sympathy for anyone else, but her hate speech disgusts me, as do all these pregnancies. Jesus.

  8. BengalCat2000 says:

    I know this is rude, but I wish stupid people wouldn’t procreate. Her initial statement announcing her pregnancy sounded like a eulogy. I think she wishes she could have an abortion and is trying spin this into some sort martyr situation. Bristol, we aren’t mad at you for getting knocked up, we’re mad because you are a mean-spirited hypocrite!

    • Kiddo says:

      Of course it is. She’s trying to elevate herself to hero status now and change the conversation that she started.

    • Snazzy says:

      ” I wish stupid people wouldn’t procreate!”
      YES!! They really really shouldn’t be allowed to.
      And yet, they are everywhere …

  9. Size Does Matter says:

    Why does anyone listen to the ramblings of this uneducated, hypocritical liar? Scary.

  10. Nick says:

    The bottom line is that she is just not that intelligent. And, if her mother was not thrust into the spotlight by McCain’s camp, we would never had heard about the palin’s including Bristol.

  11. LadyAnne says:

    Go get the douchebag Kaiser !! You are absolutely spot on.

  12. Lilacflowers says:

    Why won’t she just go away?

    • Duchess of Corolla says:

      +1

      Add her mother to that, as well. The Palins are a waste of space.

    • Kiddo says:

      Because she is the knock-off dollar store version of a Kardashian. She has done nothing to be elevated for attention, except having sex and procreating. At least Kim had a sort of porn angle on it. Bristol got pregnant and then just wanted to spread the shame, not the enjoyment. You will never hear this from me again, so here it is: Winners-Kardashians.

      Tme to stop paying attention to all of them. Let’s refocus on talent and intelligence.

      • The other paige says:

        ‘At least kim had sort of a porn angle on it’
        You are in rare form this morning….

      • Christin says:

        They are the political K family, plain and simple. Complete with the head idiot mama and ridiculous, untruthful spawn. Yet comparatively, the K bunch is more tolerable. And I take no joy in saying that, either.

      • Otaku Fairy says:

        Yep. At least the Kardashians haven’t been fighting to take anybody’s rights away. They’re just vapid, annoying, and overexposed.

      • Blackcat says:

        “Because she is the knock-off dollar store version of a Kardashian”
        that’s brilliant!
        Oh how 12 seemingly simple words when linked together speak volumes.

    • Pilar says:

      @LILACFLOWERS: “And Willow and Piper and Todd and Track and Tripp and Trig”

      What’s a seven year old boy done to provoke such ire?

      • Lilacflowers says:

        Nothing on his own. But a seven year old boy should be allowed the normal, private, fun and rewarding life of a normal seven year old boy and not shoved in front of cameras. featured on blogs, or appearing on on reality shows constantly. And yes, Bristol constantly posts pictures of Trig on her blog.

  13. Serenity says:

    This woman……I just can’t. To try and deny women the right to decide what happens to their bodies…..how can anyone support that? Like women are just handy incubators that can be forced to carry a fetus to term, no matter how reluctantly. Eff that shit!

  14. Tig says:

    Clearly, she’s a nut job. That being said, where is the surprise here? She is getting WAY too much unwarranted attention. Save it for when she starts whining when she thinks she’s being called out for her pregnancy weight gain. And of course all this is just a major deflect from the “who’s the daddy?” Lottery.

  15. Lucy2 says:

    Choice only matters to her when it’s something she can be praised for.
    It’s disgusting that she is spouting off on this in the name of protecting “women’s health”, and anyone who says “pro-abortion” automatically loses any credibility with me (not that she ever had any to begin with).
    She is just like her mother- turning her own mistakes, missteps, or mishaps into a chance to play the victim and make it everyone else’s fault.

    • Kitten says:

      Yep she definitely suffers from a martyr complex.

      • Lilacflowers says:

        Joan Rivers told her to stop playing the victim years ago and she’s still playing the victim instead of admitting her own mistakes.

    • BengalCat2000 says:

      ^^^EXACTLY. That term “pro-abortion” is so condescending.

  16. D says:

    I read somewhere that her ex-fiance deleted all photos of her from his instagram and facebook, if it is his kid I’m sure that they will have a wonderful co parenting relationship…I mean they’re both so mature.

    • Wren says:

      Ah, but if it isn’t his kid, wouldn’t that make so much sense?

      • D says:

        Good point

      • doofus says:

        if it were his kid, that would have come out by now.

        either he or Bristol would have said, publicly, in NO UNCERTAIN TERMS, that yes, he is the father. the fact that she avoids talking about the father AT ALL, in ANY of the posts/statements she’s made, is telling.

      • Liberty says:

        Exactly. Pre-planned ? Fine — with WHO?

        *crickets*

  17. NewWester says:

    Interesting how Sarah Palin has been very quiet about Bristol’s pregnancy. She must be so furious she can’t speak( which is a good thing) or getting ready to do some interview that will be Oscar worthy with all the bs she will unleash.

    • jwoolman says:

      Maybe Dakota said something that gave even Sarah pause. If he told her that he definitely was not the father, for instance, that would keep her quiet. I don’t think she would be too bothered by an “out of wedlock” pregnancy, she just spouts stuff against such things for her audience. But if her Medal of Honor winning potential son-in-law told her he’s not the father and won’t pretend he is and won’t marry Bristol as a result – that’s a different matter. It is peculiar that neither he nor Bristol have said anything about paternity. It really wouldn’t be awful if he was the dad but they decided not to continue their relationship and cancel the wedding. It happens, not really different from divorcing after a wedding. So it does seem as though he isn’t the father, and that’s causing PR people to pull their hair out figuring out how to spin it.

      There was serious speculation that Levi wasn’t actually Tripp’s bio dad but was pulled in (possibly without his knowledge) to play the role during the campaign. Don’t know if there was ever any testing done. Levi does seem to really like kids and he might honestly not care, his name is on the birth certificate and that would be enough. They were dating, but Bristol had been dating quite a few other guys before him at the time. She did seem to lose interest in him after the election. He had to fight her in court to get visitation.

      • NewWester says:

        You know I can see Sarah Palin actually being shocked into silence by Dakota telling her such information. I never heard the rumour about Levi, but a poster up thread did mention that when Bristol was on Dancing with the Stars there were whispers that she was expecting because she gained weight when most contestants lost weight on the show. Things that make a person go hmmmm

  18. Jessiebes says:

    Shooting guns whilst you are pregnant can damage the fetus hearing.

    • Lilacflowers says:

      Well, it will spare the child from having to listen to Sarah.

      • Lucky Charm says:

        S/he can tell them all kinds of things in sign language that Sarah or Bristol wouldn’t have a clue about, (except for one!) Lol!

      • Honeybee Blues says:

        You slay me! I haven’t listened to her voice since the ’08 debate with Biden, and only lasted a few minutes. I decided, as much of a political junkie as I am, I would just prefer to read the recap.

      • Casey says:

        if only we could all be so fortunate!

    • pinetree13 says:

      I didn’t think about that but you are absolutely correct. Loud noises such as that can absolutely cause permanent damage.

  19. Debbie says:

    Here is my opinion on this if you want children and don’t want to get married then I don’t think there is anything wrong with making that choice (when not in high school). No judgement on the unwed mother thing it’s cool. However, I will call foul with her because she has the audacity to judge everyone else and let’s be real she wasn’t making an active choice she was having sex before marriage (again no big deal) and had an oops twice. One would think this would humble her not make her a more arrogant and hateful.

    correct me if I’m wrong as I’m not religious but doesn’t the bible say only those without sin get to judge? Pretty sure she needs to have a seat!

    • Lilacflowers says:

      Those without sin may cast the first stone. She needs to put the rocks down.

  20. kri says:

    Gross.She is just so dumb and gross. She got to choose to have unprotected sex, and she got to choose what to do about this pregnancy. How is it possible she isn’t seeing this? oh, the stupidity.

  21. Tracy says:

    Why are we wasting space on discussing someone whose only claim to fame is that she is the adult daughter of a comically unqualified failed Vice Presidential candidate, and has undergone extensive facial plastic surgery? There are a million Bristols out there. A million knocked up young women who are trying to justify why their kids won’t have fathers in their lives, how they’re the victim of poor partner choices, etc. Bristol is allowed her political views, as is every high schooler, administrative assistant, unemployed single mother or unemployed but desperate-to-be-relevant ex-Governor. Who cares?

    • Kitten says:

      I would think it would be obvious but we’re discussing her because not ever “Bristol” out there has the floor like Bristol Palin does. Not every “Bristol” has a podium, not every “Bristol” comes from a privileged political family, and not every “Bristol” gets paid to lecture others on abstinence. We’re discussing it because like it or not, this chick does have influence.

      She’s not just some nameless, faceless woman who had a baby at 16 out of wedlock, she’s a person who’s made a career out of telling other woman what to do with our bodies.

      Now we get to tell her to STFU and call her a hypocrite.

      See how that works? ;)

  22. Jaded says:

    She has her mother’s totally misguided verging on mentally unstable belief that she can justify the most idiotic behaviour with lies, finger-pointing and judging. Sorry Bristol but you’ve painted yourself into a corner this time that no amount of self-aggrandizing blogging, bible-quoting or gun-toting pictures can get you out of. Just go away, have the kid, and in my cold cold heart I hope it grows up to be a liberal/gay/lesbian/transgender human being with a big brain and a kind heart.

  23. Jayna says:

    I had gone back and read some of her remarks and blogs after this story broke. I realized she’s a mini me, isn’t she, but she just didn’t bother to get a degree and a real job like her mom did for a while. She just went straight to I’m a voice for the conservatives and let me vomit out my ridiculous viewpoints because I’m important. Maybe Sarah and Bristol can go on a comedy tour, Dumb and Dumber.

  24. Murphy says:

    Why don’t they spend some of this energy on helping mothers who did choose life and need help?

    • Christin says:

      Yeah, she should share some of the wood she’s using to build her massive cross. She actually used the word crucified. Unbelievable, the martyr syndrome with this one and her mama.

    • Sammy says:

      Pro-life really means pro-birth. They aren’t interested in whether the child is clothed, fed, or educated. Only that is is born. There is a great quote from a nun about that, but I am too lazy to look it up.

      • pinetree13 says:

        Exactly. Forcing unwanted children to be born isn’t great for the child. Often it means a life of poverty, neglect or worse, abuse. Children should be planned to prevent those sad situations.

  25. JustCrimmles says:

    SIT DOWN, IGNORANT CHILD!

    I mean, I just want to give her a good shaking whenever I see that face. I don’t know which is worse, the fact that she is freely spewing “her” idiocy, or that there are people who will actually take her seriously.

  26. MediaMaven says:

    Keep the fetus at all costs. But, once that child is here, they want nothing to do with it, and welfare-shame the mother. Hypocrisy, thy name is Republican.

  27. Jen says:

    Everyone has raged on all of her stupidity and the issue of women’s rights, so I don’t need to go there. But can I just mention, she called the Supreme Court Justices, “5 unelected judges”?!?!? Hahahaha hahahaha bless your heart, you hypocritical a-hole, you.

    • Lilacflowers says:

      What the little moron doesn’t get is that the people who have been elected to Congress haven’t amended the Constitution. Also, if the question were ever put to a nationwide vote, her side would lose.

  28. Allie May says:

    Well said, Kaiser. I can’t believe Bristol isn’t smart enough to take a break from posting absurd crap for a while, as well.

  29. FingerBinger says:

    Bristol is trying to change the conversation. This is typical of the Palins and the rest of their ilk.

  30. Tiffany says:

    If men could get pregnant, morning after pill will be despense like a ATM.

      Tiffany, it would already be turned into a best-selling bacon.

      • Tiffany says:

        Holy crap Liberty. I think we found our product. A bacon you can eat the morning after. We just need someone who is connected with a pharmaceutical company and get this done. Pills just have a awful chalky after taste.

      • Liberty says:

        Tiffany — we own this! Let’s do this!! A pharmacy once made our cat’s medicine taste like liver, so……..!!!!!!!!!!!!! Promise we will buy tiaras w our first million.

  31. Mich says:

    This screechy moron regularly uses words like “dignified” and “dignity” to describe herself. LOL! Lots of words come to mind to describe the Palin Clan, but “dignified”? Hahahahahahahahahahaha!!

  32. Brittney B says:

    “You know what will subject Texas women to substandard medical care? When more than half of the abortion providers – the same clinics that also offer sex education, pap smears, cancer screenings, birth control and prenatal care to mostly lower middle class and poor women – are put out of business because Texas Republicans wanted to find a backdoor way to simply punish women for having sex.”

    I couldn’t have said it better myself. Thank you for being a voice of reason, Kaiser. I depend on Planned Parenthood for affordable pap smears, STD screenings and birth control. Guess what, Bristol?! I’ve never had an abortion BECAUSE of Planned Parenthood. I’ve never been pregnant BECAUSE of Planned Parenthood. Without it, I’d rely on condoms alone… and your party lovvvvvves to remind us that condoms aren’t 100 percent reliable.

    If you really cared about bringing EVERY EMBRYO TO TERM, you’d be taking things much farther than Sofia Vergara’s ex and requiring doctors to implant all those thousands of frozen embryos asap. You’d be supporting research into miscarriage, or mourning every single pregnancy that ends naturally before the woman even realizes she’s pregnant (this happens a LOT more than I previously thought). If this is about fertilized eggs being as valuable as adult women, you would be picketing the people who go through IVF and selectively terminate certain embryos to prevent dangerous multiple births or select their gender.

    If you really wanted to prevent abortion, you’d be backing Planned Parenthood and increasing their funding, not trying to shut them down. When women have access to affordable reproductive health care, they DON’T GET PREGNANT IN THE FIRST PLACE. But I guess you wouldn’t understand that, because you’re far more privileged and you have access to the best health care in the world… and you STILL managed to get pregnant twice. Bristol, you are the worst kind of idiot.

  33. cheryl says:

    The caption of the photo should be “my lonely shotgun wedding” or something. Just waking up…it hasn’t come to me yet.

  34. Elfie says:

    She doesn’t even believe the nonsense she spouts, she’s just regurgitating ideology that has been drilled into her since she was born. If she genuinely shared the beliefs she claims she wouldn’t have soon to be two children outside marriage with no active fathers in the picture. She lectures others about abstinence and the importance of fathers in children’s lives (I agree with the father bit in most circumstances but from her??? Really!!!!).

    She’s a hypocrite and her pontificating on gays and abortion has nothing to do with beliefs and everything to do with trying to claim moral superiority. It makes her feel better about herself that there are people more ‘sinful’ (in her head) than her. That is all.

    • Brittney B says:

      “If she genuinely shared the beliefs she claims she wouldn’t have soon to be two children outside marriage with no active fathers in the picture.”

      That’s a really good point… so simple I didn’t even see it.

      She obviously has premarital sex, and often. Both of her engagements seemed to be scrambling attempts to appease her parents’ party and avoid looking like a *complete* hypocrite… but she doesn’t actually disappoint herself when she “sins”. She does exactly what she wants with her own body, on her own time. Then she gets caught and tries to act superior. That’s it.

    • kcarp says:

      Ya I think you are right too. She just spouts off all the stuff that has been drilled in her head. I seriously doubt this past bf is the only person she has had sex with since her other baby daddy.

      I feel like people who claim to be completely against abortion would change their minds real quick if their 12yr old was raped and ended up pregnant.

    • anne_000 says:

      Yeah, it’s hypocritical that right-wingers like her mother would be against gays adopting because they say a child needs both a mother and a father, but then she’s having babies with men from different states and like you said, no fathers there daily in her kids’ lives.

  35. HK9 says:

    Until this girl learns how to use birth control and manage her multiple baby dadies she needs remain silent on the choices and decisions of others. Triflin’ hoe.

  36. BrandyAlexander says:

    She’s jumped onto the “Non-elected judges” schtick now too. I just can’t with this. Her mom ran for Vice President, and she had no real idea of how the constitution works. I wish they would all just go away.

  37. Jocelina says:

    “Common-sense” my ass.

    More people die under sedation during dental procedures than during first-trimester abortions, and yet no one is yammering about making dentists who perform those procedures get admitting privileges or adhere to guidelines appropriate for ambulatory surgical centers.

    I support her in whatever choices she makes regarding her own reproductive health, but it’s distasteful to me that she’d presume to judge me for mine.

  38. Mrs.Krabapple says:

    Planned Parenthood also provides cancer screenings and birth control. Removing sources of birth control will INCREASE the demands for abortion. Of course, this woman obviously has never heard of birth control, so she wouldn’t know that. But she’s also a hypocrite — “women’s health”? Really? So where is the law that requires childbirth to be performed in a hospital? Many, many, many, many, many, many, many, many, many, many, many, many, many, many (that’s 14 “many”s) times more women die in the US from childbirth than from abortion, and that includes the abortions performed BECAUSE there is a already a serious danger to the life of the mother. Yet, the religious conservatives don’t pass any bills requiring childbirth to take place in a hospital. They don’t give a rat’s ass about women’s health, and that’s just the ruse they use to do away with a woman’s access to abortion (and birth control, and cancer screenings). Doesn’t Palin claim to be religious? Then why doesn’t she feel bad about flat-out LYING over the reasons for the bill? Lying is one of the top ten big sins.

    • Vampi says:

      …Because they don’t actually “believe” in The Bible…they just need theor followers to believe they believe. They don’t appeal to the critical thinkers of society. They are just like The Duggars. They practice what I call “Pick and Choose” Christianity.
      *blows raspberry*

  39. anne_000 says:

    There’s a reason why the justices on the Supreme Court aren’t elected. Maybe she should read some history books on why the Founding Fathers set it up like that. Right-wingers love to bring up the Found Fathers to promote their own ideology, but they don’t seem to care about what the F/F really did.

    Why should basic health care for women be based on whether a women gets an abortion or not? Shouldn’t that be something handled by the overall health care system?

    If Bristol does really care about government-enforced basic health care for women, then geebus, is she becoming a socialist?

    • Lilacflowers says:

      She should also check on the statistics of ethics violations for elected judges. which some states have, and non-elected judges. That whole getting elected thing often leads to numerous ethics and conflicts of interest and election fraud problems.

  40. Lilacflowers says:

    On today’s Bristol blog, she is screaming about an Associated Press photograph of Ted Cruz standing in front of a poster depicting a gun in such a way that the gun appears to be pointed at his head. She is screaming that this is a double standard of the liberal media because of the reaction her mother got when she used a gun crosshairs to target Democratic voting districts, because the crosshairs of a gun aiming at a target aren’t a gun or something. And she’s quoting Ann Coulter as a voice of reason.

    Uhm, Bristol, let me explain the difference for you. The Associated Press photographer did not add the gun pointing at Cruz’s head. Ted Cruz CHOSE to stand there. It is not the responsibility of the photographer to edit out Ted Cruz’s chosen background. Your mother’s poster CHOSE to use gun imagery to indicate she was hunting seats in democratic districts – and you don’t free up those seats by shooting rabbits.

    It is an issue of CHOICE, Bristol. Just like you CHOOSE to be irresponsible in your sexual habits.

  41. labman57 says:

    The sad irony is that knuckleheads such as the Palin clan are unable to comprehend the causal relationship between the lack of comprehensive sex education in schools and unplanned teen pregnancy rates.

    In other words, “abstinence only” is to Sex Ed as “take the bus” is to Driver’s Ed.

  42. Mollie says:

    Ok you guys, you do understand that Bristol has NO IDEA what is going to be, or is posted on her blog, right? Because Nancy French and Sarah plan it. Bristol’s being used, and allowing herself to be used, and probably gets paid to be used. She’s an A-hole for sure, but she is NOT writing this crap.

  43. Mollie says:

    Bristol has free reign of her instagram, but NOT her blog.
    She’s an idiot, and lets herself be used like a puppet. I think pregnancy is her way of acting out.

  44. Casey says:

    girl ain’t even holding that gun correctly.

  45. Leelee says:

    I remember one day, after picking my son up from daycare, we were in a traffic jam. I kid you not for what felt like a lifetime we were next to a flatbed truck with a massive billboard of aborted fetuses. I did all I could to distract my sweet son so he would only look at me while those horrifying photos were outside of his window. The next day I called the ACLU to see if they could help get these things to be taken off the streets. I thought if I approached it as a violation if my & my son’s civil rights to have to have to be exposes to these images – if not mine then those of my precious little 4 year old. It took a month but they responded! A young lawyer met with me, heard my reasons and made a case on my behalf. What? Yes! He understood the part about exposure of these profound and horrifying images… of death to young eyes, who can’t read but know what they’ve seen is – frankly -something no one should see. In the end it turned out these fanatics were protected by the first amendment. OK. I understood but have never seen another one – 15 years later. So in the end fanatic pro-life activists can segally scare the shit out of the little psyches & souls they want to save. God bless America this Independence Day.

    • pinetree13 says:

      That is a really good point. Who wants their children to see images like that?
