Bristol Palin's gay marriage rant: Obama girls watch too much 'Glee'
Politico ^ | 5/10/2012 | By CAITLIN MCDEVITT

Posted on 05/10/2012 11:17:00 AM PDT by Bill Buckner

Bristol Palin thinks it’s laughable that President Barack Obama’s children influenced his decision to support same-sex marriage.

“While it’s great to listen to your kids’ ideas, there’s also a time when dads simply need to be dads,” Bristol, the eldest daughter of former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, wrote in a blog post titled “Hail to the Chiefs – Malia and Sasha Obama” on Thursday.

Obama said on Wednesday that his daughers' acceptance of friends with same-sex parents helped prompt his "change in perspective." In response, Palin writes:

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.

In this situation, it was the other way around. I guess we can be glad that Malia and Sasha aren’t younger, or perhaps today’s press conference might have been about appointing Dora the Explorer as Attorney General because of her success in stopping Swiper the Fox.

Sometimes dads should lead their family in the right ways of thinking. In this case, it would’ve been nice if the President would’ve been an actual leader and helped shape their thoughts instead of merely reflecting what many teenagers think after one too many episodes of Glee.

They'll get savaged for the comment, but Bristol is right.

DMB will go running to Levi for a quote now. Hopefully we'll start to hear more Bristol and less Meghan.

Yep. Do not forget the rage they went into over Rush’s comment on Sandra Fluke. Watch close, because the Left’s comments on this will make his look like child’s play. We need to be ready to hang ‘em high over their comments about Bristol.

This looking to the youngsters for leadership rather than instructing them is really at the heart of almost ALL of the cultural decline we see.

Good point. Mothers and fathers have the vocation of teaching their children, and should not hesitate to correct their childrens' errors ... particularly when those errors have been deliberately introduced by malicious adults.

Glee should have been canned after the first or second season.

Has anybody ever glimpsed at that show on TVLand, “Happily Divorced”? It’ll make your skin crawl. They even had Rosey O’Donuts on last night. I could hit my remote fast enough after “Everybody Loves Raymond” reruns.

“Glee” is one of the most insidious evils in our culture today. It’s extremely pro-homosexual, targets kids and teens, and does so with a bright, bouncy, innocent-looking/sounding air to it that makes it easily concealed to those who aren’t paying attention. If you tell someone “Glee” strongly promotes cultural degradation, they’ll look at you all funny because all they see are bright colors, fun songs, and witty dialogue.

Sometimes it’s not just the Left. Just a couple of weeks after very effectively slapping the snot out of Obama and the Dems over the Maher misogyny/double-standard on her new blog, here on FR there was a thread about a National Enquirer story claiming Bristol was living with her boyfriend (which she came out and said was an all-out lie). The thread got pulled, but not before the PDS crowd jumped in, believing every word, and started basically calling her a whore! It was pathetic, how easily manipulated some people are.

I suspect in a week or so, after this also-effective piece, there will be another deliberate “hit job” on Bristol by the media.

Very nicely done Bristol.

I think in time, the Left may come to regret their attacks on the Palins, because clearly, Sarah and Todd are well accomplished in the business of raising formidable young women. Imagine the force of nature that Piper may become...

May God bless and keep the Palin family.

Well, what to say — the GLEE TV show on Fox is pushing too much gayness on everyone.

I would not mind one gay character with a high voice on the show. I would not even mind that Jane Lynch, the bitchy gym instructor is gay in real life.

What I hate is their continously pushing the gay agenda on people.

First, it was the gay kiss, then it was the gay guy getting voted Prom Queen. Then now we have the character Santana Lopez (portrayed by actress Naya Rivera) declaring herself a lesbian And developing of her romantic feelings for her best friend Brittany Pierce.

I’ve QUIT watching the show.

There used to be a time when gay love was “The love that dare not speak its name”.

Now it’s the love that won’t shut the F up!!

That’s great. Malaria and Sushi must make their parents so proud. I think they’ve earned another vacation. Where haven’t they been yet? How about an afternoon in the Castro district of San Francisco. They can observe same sex marriage up close and personal.

Parenting can be stellar and yet the kid still messes up. It happens. At a certain age, they start making their own choices, and they can be disappointing, opposed to fundamental truths you taught them. But in Bristol’s case, there are extenuating circumstances. She was, in essence, date-raped. Victims of this often blame themselves to some degree. But the reality is that sex without informed consent is, both morally and legally, rape, and it is not right to blame the victim or the victim’s parents for the vile deeds of third parties, even if the victim struggles to reconstruct the event into something she can handle.

It’s a party poll meme that Obama took his cue on this issue from his daughters.

He’s been for same-sex marriage all along.

He had to claim otherwise the last election because the church going black voters do not support homosexual marriage.

He’s tossing them under the bus this time around.

Take a look at history, probably even in your own family, the first one can come anytime, the rest all take nine months. I can forgive and understand “once”...at the same time I”m so glad she is free of that stud Levi. Hopefully she has realized that there is a difference between “love” and “passion”. Her efforts to display remorse and to love, honor, cherish and raise her little boy is commenable. Few, and that is a precious few, are qualified to throw stones. You managed to cast one of the first, The Bible has some real surprises for hypocrites you might want to read.

Parenting can be stellar and yet the kid still messes up. It happens. At a certain age, they start making their own choices, and they can be disappointing, opposed to fundamental truths you taught them.

I have four daughters and my first daughter and last the last two are pretty devout conservatives: socially, fiscally, everything.

But, my second daughter is an off-the-rails, OWS-wannabe! Even my youngest at 16 years old asked, "What house did she grow up in?" I changed my parenting skills to meet the needs of my kids, because they are each different, but my core message has always been, self-reliance, self-discipline, hard-work and family love will keep you out of trouble and guarantee you a long life.

She thinks the world, me and everyone else owes her something! I truly do not know what caused her to have this attitude. Now that she has two daughters, she has calmed down some but still thinks that the government should provide houses, jobs, food, cars, etc... for the people. She started slipping away in the eight grade and by the end of the tenth grade she was completely out of my hands. Still to this day I don't know or understand.

She’s exactly right. The propaganda spread by the filth on TV is why young people hold views in opposition to traditional values. What’s more, the failure of fathers to teach their children is what is causing the downfall of our civilization.

We were warned, and are constantly reminded to keep the Obama kids out of things. They are just children.

However, whenever Obama wants to talk about something controversial...or he wants to act as though he cares about an issue...he mentions his daughters. He did it when he said he favored abortion, he did it when he talked about contraception, and now he does it when he talks about gay marriage. Guess the kids are no longer off limits since Daddy is constantly including them and obviously considers their input valuable to our nation????

Actually, it is disgusting how Obama uses his daughters, and hides behind them. They probably would have been better off with another woman as a parent, because Obama is certainly no man! Imagine the confusion in that family.

Daddy is supposed to have been so smart, but no one can see his grades. Daddy said he was born in Kenya when he was running for the Senate, but that was changed to Hawaii when he ran for President. Daddy said he didn't believe in late term abortion, but when he was a Senator he voted in favor of it. Daddy has several social security numbers and several different names. Daddy was a citizen of Indonesia when he was a child, but no one has seen any proof that he reaffirmed any U.S. citizenship. Daddy used to take them regularly to Rev. Wright's Black Liberation Theology church to listen to the rants against America...and then he severed ties with Wright and claims to love this country. And speaking of religion, Daddy claims to be a Christian...but they don't go to church except on holidays for photo ops. Daddy cancelled the National Day of Prayer Breakfast at the White House, saying government and religion shouldn't mix...but allowed the Muslims to hold a religious celebration on the White House lawn. I could go on and on, but we have all seen the hypocrisy of What's his name Obama.

How can that man face his children when, now that they are older, they must realize the lies and conflicting stories that they have been told by the man who claims (and the media claims) is such a good and loving father?

Seems to me he is a father who has to be giving them examples of how to live a lie, how to cover up your lies, and how to blame others for your own decisions. Let alone making them question their own heritage. If Obama was confused as a child, imagine the confusion of his children! What an awful example he is.
