Skip to comments.WaPo’s Parker: 'Might Trig Palin Someday Read His Mother's Abortion Thoughts and Find Them Hurtful?'
Posted on 02/15/2010 9:31:17 PM PST by Rufus2007
It's no surprise that elitism and a pretentious point of view have a place on The Washington Post editorial page, but even this is a little much.
Pseudo-conservative columnist Kathleen Parker asserted that Trig Palin, the Down syndrome son of the 2008 Republican vice-presidential nominee and former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin might one day find his mother's abortions comments "hurtful." A Feb 14 column published in the Post focused on the delicate art of criticizing Palin's recent political and personal defense of the special-needs community, stemming from White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel's controversial comments involving the word "retarded."
Parker recounted Palin's brief mention that she understands how women entertain the though of abortion when learning about the special needs of an unborn child. Instead of praise for Palin's honesty and candor, Parker seized the opportunity to criticize Palin's outspokenness and attempt to speak on behalf of her son.

I will never read crap from Parker, and this is down right evil. What a worthless woman.
Kathleen Parker has had Palin Derangement Syndrome for some time.
It is amazing how even older women in such privileged positions and who consider themselves to be logical and intelligent (I am not saying she is) can find themselves driven by the same emotions of anger and jealousy as a “mean girl” in high school, when it comes to Sarah Palin.
Parker probably loves Sarah Palin .. if not for her, what would Parker write about?
Kathleen Parker is obsessed with Sarah Palin and her family. Maybe it’s because the best Kathleen can do is write a column for a left-wing paper and get a degree in Spanish Literature. Sarah was governor of a state and lives with the FIRST DUDE!
Might not this Parker person do the same? Can Parker's mom get a do-over?
I try to boycott those who publish Parker.
It is obscene she is paid to write what she does, particularly by what are supposed to be conservative publications.
That picture on her website is not what she looks like now...she wishes!
I think she is jealous of Sarah.
She looks like the snowmen in my neighborhood now that the temps have risen.
If he has that critical thinking he will understand that Mom went for life. This is a very sorry statement on the part of this death clown.
She is just another liberal beating the Hate Sarah drum, hoping to poison the voter pool before 2012.
She is also probably envious that more people read Palin’s facebook posts than her pathetic columns in the WacomPost.
Kathleen Parker: Oogedy-Boogedy
‘How about social conservatives make their arguments without bringing God into it? By all means, let faith inform ones values, but let reason inform ones public arguments.’
‘That was and remains my point. It isnt so much God causing the GOP problems; its his fan club.’
‘As long as the religious right is seen as controlling the Republican party, the GOP will continue to lose some percentage of voters, and that percentage likely will increase over time as younger voters shift away from traditional to more progressive values.’
Parker is a R-word.
Does anyone know where I can find the video of Sarah’s speech at Daytona. I’ve seen some mention it, but I haven’t been able to find a thing about her visit there, either at the race or the book signing.
No, it is worse than that. The media convinced a large portion of the people to hate Bush because THEY hated Bush. They want to do the same to Sarah before 2012 so that THEY can once again select a RINO candidate for us.
2012 is a ways off. 2010 will be another matter. Gridlock on a socialist President is the goal. That bastard is killing America.
Check out post #10...it’s worse than just ugly
As Earl Weaver once said “Kathleen Parker, god bless her soul, ought to worry about getting her @ss off a barstool once in a while and maybe a man would stick a pr!ck into her”.
Kathleen...You have become a woman fit only to be pitied.
Oh, yeah, that would bother me alright. Gee, mom, you had a chance to kill me and you didn’t do it? What’s wrong with you?/SAR. Is this guy serious? What a bunch of evil people reside on the left.
Another ugly broad to add to the gallery of creepy looking female rats.
I don't know...
Does anyone wonder if Malia Obama might read her father's thoughts one day and think she and her sister punished her mother?
You’re right. Never heard of Parker before her Sarah hit pieces.
Right on!!! You squarely hit the nail on the head!
Very nice job!
See if you can't spread that message a little far and wide, huh? Do us all a favor...
Hi there - am looking for same - ping me if you find it first and I’ll do the same for you.
This Parker woman - how pathetic. Does she really not know what venomous, catty, snake of a woman she reveals herself to be???? I pity her. I really really do. She has to be one miserable soul. Realize this sounds bad to some, but she needs our prayers!!!
I resolved some time ago that reading K. Parker is worse than a waste of time.
If Sarah P. becomes a candidate for election to any office some of the weirdos in the Lame Stream Press will become candidates for straight jackets.
Here is where I found several theads.
So, I guess Kathleen wouldn’t be calling attention to her and her child... correct? It’s not as if she could have contacted her privately, (since she’s so concerned).
So conservative, working, Hillary loving mom that she is, she wants Sarah to shut up, not be seen with her child, not speak up when the culture slanders special-needs or just stay barefoot, pregnant and out of her sight?
I gather she doesn’t have a special-needs child, or if she did, she wasn’t the one taking care of him/her most of the time or she’s forgotten. At the end of the day, it’s you and that child; He has to go to the hospital, problems at school, sitting down helping him to catch up later, dad’s working... momma’s baby. Maybe in her research re: Keeping Men (her book), she didn’t look at statistics on the strain of children with disabilities on fathers, as well as families in general. Trig is not her older daughters responsibility (she has her own), her son is fighting in Iraq (as if that’s not enough to stress her), her youngest has her own life (you wouldn’t dump a lot of duties on her, other than loving big sis), and the hubby works for a living. Happens all over the globe daily.
So she can’t speak her mind on a subject her beloved jerks know or care nothing about but spout ugly terms (and it’s not like it’s been once)? To defend them she lashes out at Palin?
Ah yes, motherly advice...
She said abortion for a reason. How long ago was it when Palin shared ‘honestly’ how she felt about ‘her choice’?
Parker has issues. This isn’t about one mom to another... not with that language and her history with Palin.
Sounds like someone aborted before, during or after her three sons. Maybe I can find the column she wrote on it, if that happened... did she tell her husband?; Or maybe she has abortion thoughts about her boys.
I wonder what she would think if that were in a well-read column? Exactly.
Someone should talk to Kathleen, she’s out of line.
Someone inform Mrs. Parker, Palin is a private citizen, we would welcome some facts on our government and a million other important stories being ignored. But it’s hard to complain when she’s a columnist and a mother. /s
A Gaynor response:
re: abortion angle
Gee, is that the same Parker that wrote this?
Her position (as of 2006):
Yeah, Kathleen, you know, you may be right. One day Trig MAY find those words hurtful. But, then again, he MAY NOT.
One thing we can more sure of is he will be THANKFUL that his mother decided to give him life.
She’s aged 15 years in 2. I guess its true about how dangerous it is to slander God’s children.
Kathleen Parker is a c-word
I mean I almost never say that word but she merits it.
Sarah should slap her silly face.
Some women...I swear to God.
At least, in Wizard of Oz; the wicked witch gets her due. A 'self-implosion' would be welcome for Parker and all her like-minded ilk.
All to pathetic a spectacle passing as 'journalism' - and a journalist.
We are going to have to do something about these assholes in the media.....they have no souls left to look too, as their concept of their self importance has blurred their vision of themselves...
Trig will feel proud that his Mom choose life.....
Parker: stop trying so hard to make others think you’re smarter than Sarah. You only sound painfully self-conscious and you’ll never reach Palin’s brilliance, let alone her looks.
The mind of a Down syndrome person will never think on that level—so Trig is protected from the venom of slithering, slimy media people whose lives are so cursed with envy that they don’t understand this basic fact.
I’ll spell it out for you so you don’t miss it: this vicious idea you’re cultivating will never have an effect on Trig, no matter how much it flourishes in the malice of the Washington media.
Parker’s Palin obsession is Andrew-Sullivan-creepy.
Parker was a complete unknown before she started getting noticed by bashing Sarah Palin. She will return to obscurity after November 2012, when she will no longer be useful to her Masters.
If this sick puppy has any daughters, I hope they turn out to be just like her. When parker is very old, things could turn out ugly. Just desserts.
Absolutely. Every time they try to trash Sarah it makes them look small and Sarah look even better. Enough with the arrogant & elitist attitude coming from the media. They are no smarter or better than the rest of us including Sarah Palin. I doubt seriously if Alaska would elect a complete fool as governor.
BTW, maybe Kathleen and the rest of her ilk don't get that when she lowers herself to trash Sarah that she is trashing the rest of us (and our families) who are just like Sarah!
Besides the fact that some of the so-called intellectuals elected a fool who can't pour *iss out of a boot much less run anything! "Intellectuals" are highly overrated!
I’m sure her parents wanted her to grow up smart and beautiful. What a disappointment!
