Are the Palin Girls Cyberbullies?
Slate.com ^ | Nov. 17, 2010 | Emily Bazelon

Posted on 11/18/2010 4:56:53 PM PST by Artcore

While the premiere of Sarah Palin's reality show was pulling in record ratings for TLC Sunday night, her daughters Willow and Bristol Palin were apparently going to the mat on Facebook. The girls, who are 16 and 19, were defending the show from posters who said they didn't like it.

We knew the leftists would become totally unhinged if Palin even hinted about running for POTUS in 2012.

These people really are human debris!

I’m “concerned” and “worried” about what this says about “Palin” as a mother.

So I guess calling Bristol “Fat” and talking about “Nailin Palin” is totally allowed when it comes to the left..when a Conservative defends themselves, that is not tolerated. I wonder where were all the leftists when Andrew Breitbart was called “A faggot” anything happen to that person..nope

Why would they want to be on Facebook anyway? I wouldn’t sign up with any of those sites or whatever they’re called.
FR and my emails keep me busy enough. But I guess I’m a foggie.

Wow. What important journalism from such an important journalistic website. The country can rest assured that we get important info like this. Pulitzer anyone? I remember when we used to get info on the Bush daughters and their love of drink and the wild life. Hugely important stuff. Funny, I can’t remember any stories on Chelsea when she was a minor. Weird. I am sure I am just forgetting them.

Did Bristol and Palin forget for a moment that everything they wrote would be public?

Common for Facebookers and Tweeters the world over, it seems. They write as if it's private email.

I was one of Sarah's biggest supporters "BUT" I am concerned that this proves that her family will sink her chances which is why I believe Mitt Romney will make a better candidate

Don't think so. But the poster was correct that there is a story out there. Whether it's true or not, we will have to wait and see.

I think this goes beyond a Liberal/Conservative issue. There was a piece on the news last night about a local teenage boy's memorial page on FaceBook being trashed. The boy was killed when hit by a school bus. The family had started a memorial page on FaceBook where friends could leave comments and stories about their son. The social networking “pirrahna” swarmed in, making comments that just simply broke my heart. After hearing some of the comments, it dawned on me that there seems to be an entire generation of sociopaths out there. No feeling, no empathy, a seeming inability to understand the family's grief or why it would be inappropriate to trash a memorial site. Stunning indifference.

I was surfing channels during commercials on Fox News and hit the Joy beyer show and they were discussing this. My God, there isn't any real news or issues out there that grown people have to discuss the Palin kids and how their mother raises them. These people are so scared of Palin they have to attack her family daily.

I wonder if the celebrity families of beher, Woopi Etc. were investigator they would be half the mothe Sarah Palin is?

You DO understand that my quotation marks were a parody of the FR Concern trolls, don’t you?

They disgust me.

Here’s another:

I’m “concerned” that “Palin” is “damaged goods” after her “poor performance” during the (legendary) Couric interview.

I’m “worried” that the media has trashed “Palin” and that she won’t be taken seriously by.....get ready.....Independents and Moderates.

Yes of Course! I thought my picture of concern troll I stole from Photo bucket would be enough to show I wasn't serious But No worries Brotha I knew what you meant

But for the record I AM one of her biggest supporters I just love her to death and these people who think that the Precious,Immaculate and Holy "moderates" (which how you can be moderate with communists is beyond me) will just run back into Obama's loving arms after these 2 years are complete TOOLS!

What these idiot leftists don’t seem to get, is that they’ve inoculated Sarah Palin! They tried in vain to destroy her and it didn’t work.

Attacks on her family now will only strengthen Palin. As another astute poster noted, these people have no problem with abortions at the third trimester, but calling someone a mean name on Facebook...well, that just crosses the line! ;)

Our economy is in the ditch. Americans are being sexually assaulted at airports, and people are concerned if the Palin girls are cyberbullies?

I friggin don’t care one way or the other. We have bigger fish to fry,but, the lamestream media has to devote its time to savaging Bristol and Willow.

Sarah is a mama grizzly, and I think she’s about ready to bare her bear claws! I know I would!

I’m a big admirer of Sarah Palin — a political genius and hero of the Tea Party.

But I sure wish that someone — Todd or Sarah — had raised the young ladies better. The use of such foul language in a Christian home is inexcusable.

No worries.

Some, even allegedly on our side, have a suspicious double standard across the board,when it comes to Sarah Palin, holding her to a higher level of inspection than every other potential candidate.

Sorry KC, I missed the fact that you were posting to my response to Artcore.

Coincidentally, I just fired off a nasty email to some liberal fool of a Sportshow host here in St. Louis who was taking uniformed, puerile potshots at Sarah Palin, her family and her supporters.

I let him know that outside of his Leftist comfort zone of similarly deluded lockstep fools,that Conservatives are once again on the march, and despite their delusions, Governor Palin enjoys MUCH, MUCH more than a cult following of alleged “far right” zealots.

I also reminded them that it is GAME ON against the liberal monopoly of the old, dying mass media.

Yes if we are too win the candidate must be PERFECT!!!! Zero flaws, only a divine candidate can beat the god of all things Obama. She must be 100% republican (but it would be even better if she supported illegals, cap and trade, one world government and the Chinese system) you know to attract "moderates" ;) /BIG TIME SARC

The Kansas City SCar is just as bad, it will probably the headliner in the morning

In the coming years after Sarah's two term presidency we will have people here on FR saying that they supported Sarah from the beginning, but in truth they were all Romneybots.

I don't believe anything the lame stream media says, if they come up with a hit piece on her than I know it is the opposite of what they are reporting, I also think that Sarah has a larger cult following than even she realizes

Forget Moose, I want to go on a RINO hunting trip with her!!!!

Bristol and Willow shouldn’t have even apologized. They had NOTHING to apologize for. Those turds were posting horrible things about them, mentioning “Nailin Palin porn” and calling Bristol “Fat” and trashing Bristol’s beautiful son Tripp. The left never apologize for anything, they can say that Willow should be raped in Yankee Stadium, they laugh at it..they can say that Sarah Palin should be gang raped by “Black homies” nothing happens, they laugh at that, calling Sarah the “C” word, no response..they have been called every damn name in the book and nothing happens to them. Andrew Breitbart was called a “fag” I didn’t see the left demand an apology. I am so happy to see that these girls are not taking this crap anymore and standing up for their family. I would have called them much much worse if they had said anything about my family.
