Skip to comments.Leave Trig Palin Alone!

Enough already! I have had it with the sickening attacks on Trig Palin! First the partisan blogger, Wonkette, made extremely offensive, and stupid remarks about Trig. Next, the not-funny comic, CK Louis makes an obscene, gut-churning rant about Trig and his beleaguered mom, Sarah Palin. In his attempt to lampoon, he spews so much bile that the piece is unwatchable.
These are bottom-of-the-barrel, dregs-of-the-earth, examples of junk media in America. There seems to be an agreed-upon rule among these hacks that it is okay to disparage a child and his disability simply because his mother is a controversial political figure. It is the selective political correctness that colors all modern political debate. If you are conservative, or the innocent child of a conservative, you have a target on your back and it is open season on every personal and sensitive aspect of your life. You can't shoot back, and you certainly can't use politically incorrect tactics to make fun of Liberals, because they will howl, gnash their teeth, and ensure that you are labeled a racist, sexist, homophobic, abusive, uneducated, inbred, Nazi, hater. The truth is that most public figures on the "left" are so insecure in themselves and their political beliefs that they recoil at the slightest intonation that they might be plain wrong.
One and all, shut up when it comes to Trig Palin. Pick on someone your own size! Sarah Palin is a tough cookie, this is true. And when she ran on the McCain ticket for Vice President she surely got a big taste of the blood and dirt of modern political debate. The attacks on her and her family, the disturbing images and words that saturate print, video, and digital media, have reached a critical mass. It is not funny. There is no political value in such public abuse. And the entire culture is eroded by the crass, and hurtful assaults on one family and their child with special needs.
Trig, and so many like him born with Down Syndrome, are cute, playful, and joyful little kids. They learn, love, and bless our lives. Special attention must be given the medical, educational, and vocational needs of individuals with Down Syndrome. Life is not easy for any of us, and no one should be disqualified from dignity, love, and respect because they are born different.
There is a price to be paid for the creepy attacks on Trig. Wonkette lost numerous sponsors as a result of her inane remarks. CK Louis has been roundly criticized for his idiotic jokes. Perhaps the rubbish coming from the mouths and keyboards of these people will be matched by the stinking carcasses of their careers. Unfortunately, the greater price is paid by our entire society. It is easy to gradually devalue certain people, especially if it becomes an acceptable trend among the media and entertainment elite. Let's hope for the sake of Trig Palin, all individuals with disabilities, and Americans at large, that it stops here and now.

There is a strange paradox of complexity in the liberal psyche. While they talk of compassion and caring they prove over and over again to vulgar mouths and nasty hearts.
Damn right. I don’t care what you think of any politician, their young kids ought to be off limits.
Never heard of CK Lewis until this moment.
After a quick search, and seeing he’s a writer for Letterman, I guess that explains a lot.
The Immoral Press can’t help itself. This is part of the Liberal/Progressive media’s down spiral.
Good piece. She missed one thing:
“And the entire culture is eroded by the crass, and hurtful assaults on one family and their child with special needs.”
Leftscum WANT to erode our culture. That’s the nature of marxist thugs!
These people kill babies.
Harassing one is no thing for them.
That is a good reminder.
Letterman can hire a hundred more writers and he still would not be funny or relevant!
The first night he was aware of Governor Sarah Palin he went bananas over her good looks(nothing about her accomplishments) and was planning on having her on his show! Twenty four hours later he was attacking her in a very personal way, and never ceased!
My deduction was he was told to get back on the Liberal trash wagon and forget her pluses. Since then I have not seen his shows unless by accident and then not more than a few seconds. Dave and suCK Lewis can Pi$$ off!!!
Actually, I have a different opinion about this.
Let the writers and the comics and the pundits revel in gutter talk about a Down’s Syndrome child. Let them do it, loudly and forcefully. Show the world who they are. Demonstrate through actions and words what is important to them, and how they really feel about other people. Allow the world to see what a dyed-in-the-wool leftist really looks like.
To paraphrase Lenin, they’ll hang themselves with the rope they’ve cobbled together with hatred and rancor. It couldn’t happen to a better bunch of folks.
As I said on another thread, every time they attack Trig they give his mother a million or two votes.
