Skip to comments.Palin daughters are threatened, taunted in Facebook war
Posted on 11/18/2010 12:33:43 PM PST by markomalley
The Huffington Post reported Tuesday that 16-year-old Willow Palin unloaded on [a] student and lashed out at multiple others during a Facebook wall post war. But Palin was not the only Facebook user to throw out scathing insults.
Willow Palin is under immense media scrutiny and being dubbed homophobic by Gawker, a website that has made clear its unfavorable view of the Palin family, for describing one former schoolmate as so gay and a faggot.
TMZ obtained screenshots yesterday of the Facebook debate, which began when a Facebook user and former classmate of the Palin girls named Tre posted a status update that said, Sarah Palins Alaska, is soo failing hard right now. Willow Palin responded, Dont watch it dumb shit and Bristol Palin wrote, Youre running your mouth just to talk shit .
Tre replied with, Willow, dont make me count to three and a boy name Matt wrote, not as fat as Bristol The only program I enjoyed from your family is Nailin Palin.
It is around this point Willow jumped in to criticize those friends lashing out at her and her family, calling one, Matt, s0 gay and another, Tre, a faggot.
Tre went on to call Willow hella ignorant and say, Your moms show sucks, just get over it. Ill post whatever the f*ck I want about it on MY Facebook .& sorry Bristol, we can all live fail lives because you got pregnant when you were 17ha we all cant get lucky and have our moms be the gov. and you getting on talk shows because your pre-marital sex.
Toward the end of the spat, Matt wrote, directed at Bristol Palin, B*tch if I remember right you were grabbin my a** in wrestling practice I know I dont have a kid, maybe because I know what a f*cking condom is.
The news outlets that have written about this story have attributed anti-gay views and bigotry to Willow Palin, a minor, but none have questioned Facebook user Matts comments calling the Palin daughters a slur for a prostitute.
Mario Ruiz, vice president of media relations at The Huffington Post, wrote in an e-mail to The Daily Caller, Huffpost exercises caution when reporting on minors. In the case of the widely-reported remarks made by Willow Palin on her Facebook page, HuffPost editors considered Palins age as well as the storys newsworthiness, in addition to her public profile, including her on-screen participation in a reality show, Sarah Palins Alaska, before deciding to cover and link to TMZs story.
In January 2009, Tina Wells wrote a Huffington Post column condemning the dolls being made of Sasha and Malia Obama. Wells said of the Obama daughters, They did not ask for the attention and shouldnt have to maintain an image provided without their, or their parents, approval
For the most part, President and Mrs. Obama have kept the girls out of the medias reach, and a situation like this totally violates and exploits them.
Yet the Left (and even Barack Obama himself) used the homophobic slur “teabagger” to harass members of the Tea Party.
This is the reason that Lurker Jr. is not permitted to have a Facebook or Myspace account.
There will be oh so many people claiming that these young girls need to just shut up and take it.
Those people should not breed.
Ya............ So who cares?
Sarah. All others Palin comparison.
Why would parents let children on Facebook in the first place. A total waste of time and energy and a fantastic way to ruin your life. wtf?
Also... the younger generation has totally different meaning for the term, “faggot” than we do. I learned that in a really funny conversation with my niece.
I can live with the use of the word “faggot” but young Willow was throwing the other “F” word around right and left.
I’m sorry but no matter what the others said first, the Palins should punish their daughter. She has been in trouble before. It’s just dumb cursing on line in fights with idiots on the Internet.
Has anyone explained the difference between “disgust” and “fear” to Gawker?
the left is deranged and is suffering from conserophobia.
Those would be the same people who called Sarah Palin a c&n& and say she is not a feminist.
Just close the facebook accounts. They aren’t necessary anyway.
Sarah needs to look over her kids shoulder a little more often. Kids on the internet needs supervision just like every other teenager activity.
Not saying it’s easy...just saying it needs to be done.
Good Lord!! A words war on the facebook pages of one of Sarah Palin’s daughters and her schoolmates? Is this REALLY considered news? Ridiculous.
The truth is that to their credit, the media are not widely reporting Willow Palin getting in trouble. Forget the media, the girl posted “F you” multiple times in response to these people, and I am troubled if the Palins don’t punish that.
A foul mouth in public is nothing to defend. Certainly not by a 16 year old girl.
Bristol apologized on behalf of her sister.....this is a dead story....
Given my definition of what a feminist is, she is not one.
She is not hairy, crew-cutted, man-hating, baby aborting, manly or lesbian so no, in my definition of the word, she is most certainly NOT a feminist.
Might find this funny. My how times have changed:
Actually, according to Dictionary.com’s definitions of Homophobe, I fall under one of the definitions.
Bring it on! :)
Y’know, that “teabagger” thing bugs me. It’s pretty apparent that people are using it in some sort of sexual reference, but my imagination is apparently not broad enough to know what it means in that context. And no, I’m not googling it. I don’t want to know.
Sometimes ignorance really IS bliss.
On a related noted, when I was 19 I somehow picked up the word “dildo” as the equivalent of “dope” and used it quite a bit until someone told me what it meant - about a year after I started saying it.
Yea me too.
They need to. How dumb are those girl??? OMG
If that’s a real exchange (appears to be from the TMZ screenshots, unless someone is impersonating the Palin girls) then young Willow and Bristol are really foolish to be getting into online flame wars with jerks. What is Willow thinking (ok she’s not) throwing around 4-letter words that will be there forever? She’s something of a public figure whether she wants to be or not, especially once she engages in Facebook flame wars over her mom’s show.
I understand and sympathize with wanting to defend one’s mom and family against the jackals, but it does the Palin cause (not to mention the conservative cause) no good at all to have the Palin girls throwing F and S words around online just b/c some teen dorks were mean.
It's just going to be a matter of time before this stupid twit ends with an STD or getting someone pregnant.
The Palins have no one to blame but themselves for letting Willow attend public schools, let alone interact and flame with scum like this.
Everyone except Mommy should get off of Facebook.
Bristol and her sister are probably fed up with what’s being said about their entire family.
Why is Mom and Dad not paying closer attention to what is going on in their kids lives.
Parents first priority is their kids Everything else comes second.
Here’s a better one.
DeFriend everyone on the page and set it to private.
I have 10 friends on FB. Anyone else who tries to “friend” me is denied.
Sarah. All others Palin comparison.
Well said. Sarah should sit the kids down, despite some of them being over 18, and remind them (for the umpteenth time) of the EXTRA-ordinary scrutinary on everything they all do because of who Mom is, and who she could be in 2012.
Especially when their very fish-bowl existence is defined by the hatefulness of the lamestream media whores who are trolling 24/7 for anything, yes, ANYTHING, to go after her and/or her family, with. Only in America!!!
Homo means pertainging to humans as in Homonid. Homo also means sameness as in homosexual or homoginizes. Phob means fear of. If you are a homophobe you are afraid of humans or are afraid of things that are the same. The Gaystapo is using language as a weapon against us. They should leave our language alone and stick to packing fudge.
Very disappointing news, if true. Smutty language from the daughters isn’t helpful.
They have time to sodomize the language because, not having children and having really good jobs, they have the time and the money to fiddle about with this kind of thing.
Lots of ...ahem....cough...”concern” on this thread....
A words war on the facebook pages of one of Sarah Palins daughters and her schoolmates? Is this REALLY considered news?.................................. For the Left it is a tingle, any little thing on SP they can inflate into a big issue is Good News for them. This is nothing, wait till SP says she’s in the running, then the Left will be flinging sh!t like bombs on Berlin in WW II. The language I see on Facebook from teenagers is a lot of potty mouth. Really nothing that should make Headline News. But, it happens to be Palin’s daughter, so, let it rip.
“Parents first priority is their kids Everything else comes second.”
Sometimes just doing what you have to do to keep food on the table and a roof over your heads takes all your time and energy.
I agree. Why not just...I don’t know, GET OFF FACEBOOK for a start?
Most of my family is on that thing, and I finally got one after years of pestering. What a flipping waste of time, IMO.
Ok, I'll go with that.
“GET OFF FACEBOOK for a start?”
Absolutely. Especially given their mother’s situation.
Sounds good in theory.
Yeah, that is what I thought until I went to Dictionary.com. Here is what they say:
intense hatred or fear of homosexuals or homosexuality
I do not hate homosexuals, but the word “or” is in that description. I do HATE homosexuality. I hate sin. I understand that God HATES sin, and homosexuality is pretty clearly spelled out as a sin in the bible.
That means Christians are, by definition, homophobic. And that is a good thing.
Gawker is run by two foreigner faggots, Nick Denton and Remy Stern so no one should be surprised at their gay rage PDS hysteria.
As much as I would love to support Sarah for president, this is just one more reason I have very serious doubts. It DOES matter how she parents. They have been in the public eye long enough for those girls, at their age, to project a better public face. Language like that does not endear me to them. It’s like the whole family is just an inch away from wigging out. When is it going to happen? Piper is cute as heck, but she is extremely willful and will follow the way of Bristol and Willow. I have no problem with the tv show and I want to love Sarah, but I’m just really sick of them and their extremely bad choices. And I have to wonder how many others just like me, conservative to my core, are feeling the same way.
