Wonkette Suggests Trig Wishes He Was Aborted
NewsBusters ^ | Mark Finkelstein

Posted on 11/01/2008 4:05:29 AM PDT by governsleastgovernsbest

There really are no words, though I suppose we'll manage to find some. Wonkette, which bills itself as "the DC Gossip," and is the creation of Ana Marie Cox, now gone on to bigger things at Time, has this photograph up of Trig Palin, dressed for Halloween as an elephant and being held in the loving embrace of one of his sisters. [H/t reader Damian G.]

Wonkette appends this comment, suggesting—and there really is no way to sugar coat it— that given the choice Trig would wish he had been aborted:

Just when you think they’ve reached the bottom, they drive up in a steam shovel.

Speechless with contempt ping to Today show list.

1. readers not members of the ping list: please note that Wonkette posted the contemptible comment, Finkelstein at NewsBusters wrote the item criticizing Wonkette. Please address comments accordingly.

2. I’d be grateful if people would ping to other appropriate lists.

I can’t imagine being that angry and full of hate all the time. Also: If Michelle Malkin, for instance, said something like that about Obama’s kids it would go supernova.

One of the comments below the Wonkette “article”....

“Ugh. I hate that look people get on their face when they are happy to be holding a baby. It is all domestic and other disturbing things.”

Reading some of the other comments I can only assume, they dislike babies and people of disabilities.

In my mind and the realization grows as this campaign evolves that this election is really about Obama Vs. Trig

Before Pope Benedict came to America to celebrate Mass in New York and Washington, it was revealed that as a young boy in Germany he had had a cousin with Down Syndrome. One day a Nazi doctor came and claimed his cousin for the Third Reich. Taken to be “cared for” at the “hospital” young Joseph Ratzinger never saw his cousin again: one of the host of “useless eaters” marked for extermination by that brutal regime.

My wife and I operate St. Joseph’s House, a daycare and respite care home for handicapped children. As it happened one of the children we care for, a wheelchair bound young lady, was chosen along with three other handicapped folks to carry the gifts up to the altar before the consecration at the Mass at Nationals Stadium in Washington D.C. on April 17, 2008. One of these was James, a 30ish man who works in the Officer’s Club at Andrews AFB. James has Down Syndrome. He was chosen to carry the large host which would become the Body of Christ lifted up before the assembled. As James with great ceremony advanced toward the Pope, his native enthusi­asm overcame his reserve and he started to run. Simultaneously the Holy Father leapt from his chair and walked towards James with his arms out­stretched. We have a picture of this moment which I cannot look at without tearing up. What did he see as he gazed so lovingly at James? I believe he saw his cousin. I believe he saw the face of Jesus. And I believe that his great prayer as he elevated that host on that impossibly beautiful day was “As long as you did to these the least of my brethren, you did it to Me.”

The next day April 18th, a boy was born to of all people, the Gover­nor of Alaska. They named him Trig.

Yesterday, while watching one of the rallies, Trig was being held by Bristol. She said something to Trig. Trig turned his head and gave his sis a big smile.

My first thought was" that is love". It was a simple beautiful moment.

The left is just pure evil.

You are close, but it goes further...

The hardcore leftist is always, ALWAYS a middle class or above person who hates themselves and simply projects that onto most things around them.

It’s why they are primitivists, pro-homosexual, pro-arbortion, pro-Muslim, pro-Soviet, etc. Anything that is not them is somehow magically hip, smart, unassailable and right. Anything that resulted in them - freedom, family, love, decency, capitalism, America - they reflexively hate. Their backgrounds often include divorce, too. They are largely unhappy people, some of them profoundly miserable.

Our arguments against communism, that it results in widespread corruption, murder and misery, don’t sway them at all. That is the appeal to them. Publicly, they tell you all sorts of things aimed at swaying sane people. Privately, their true opinions and ideals come out. You see that in Obama and in ‘Wonkette’, the disgusting ‘Where’s Daddy?’ liberal who once served as John Edwards’ lead blogger. What she has said about Jesus I can’t even print here. Disgusting and hateful. And I’m not a religious man at all.

As a sidelight, I was just reading about a case in Australia where a German medical doctor who was working in a remote, underserved area of the country was denied permanent resident status because he had a 13 yr old son with Down syndrome. The reason given was that his son would be a burden to the state.

Get ready for this happening here, especially under the Obama-Marx health plan.

not aborting them.

Funny how liberals see an unwanted pregnancy as a burden, and see people born with physical defects as burdens to the state...

Yet actual burdens to the state, those who commit crime and refuse to be civil and productive, those who fail miserably at life due to their own behavioral and character flaws, those whose sloth and barbarity are subsidized by confiscating the earnings of the hard-working citizenry -

Are called constituents.

I am so saddened by the comments at Wonk's site. That such hatred exists in the world still upsets me. I can't stand BHO, but his daughters are very cute children and would never be even snubbed at a Republican event, much less discussed with such venom.

Beautiful story.

Here’s a personal story to go with yours:

My oldest daughter Sky worked with a Down’s syndrome boy named Jamie from 1996 when we were stationed at Malmstrom AFB, MT. In fact she still is friends with him and his entire family.

My very ill mother moved in with our family in May of 2001 because she wanted to die at home, surrounded by family. Jamie was a frequent visitor to our house in the months before she died. My mother really enjoyed him & he always made her smile & had a hug for her.

The day she died I had gone out to the grocery story - the first time I’d left the house in 2 days because I knew she was close to dying. She died while I was in line checking out - my husband called & told me. Later that day we left the house to deal with things.

When I returned & checked voicemail there was Jamie’s voice saying “I’m so sorry that Grandma Mary died, but she is in heaven.” He proceeded, in this beautiful voice to sign the entire song Amazing Grace. Most “normal” people wouldn’t have done something like that - but it was the most loving, caring thing & just what our family needed at that time. I cannot tell you how many times I listened to this young man, probably 15 at the time (not sure of his exact age) sing that song & tell me w/o saying so that he too loved my mom.

That is the type of love people know Down’s syndrome children for - unconditional love. Our world is better for people like Jamie and Trig - this world NEEDS what they have to give.

I wish Barack Obama and his beautiful daughters no ill will at all. I’d like to think everyone here feels the same.

Conservatives hate the policies and opinions liberals espouse.

Liberals hate the conservatives themselves.

That was not a good way to start my Saturday after having some fun at the front door with the little wigglers in the neighborhood in all their spooky outfits....I love seeing all of them in their creative displays....

...and now to read about this monstrous creature and how her mind works - much less that she published her disgusting thoughts to show the public how awful her life must be....

...there is nothing left but to feel very sorry for her miserable self.

Can you imagine what it might be like to be her?

With love to the beautiful and blessed boy of the Palen family.
