Suspicious package reportedly sent to 'DWTS' set over Bristol Palin
MSN.com ^ | October 4, 2012

Posted on 10/04/2012 10:12:00 PM PDT by South40

A package containing a suspicious white powder, which sparked a security alert at CBS network studios in Hollywood on Wednesday, was a threat to TV executives over the inclusion of reality star Bristol Palin on "Dancing With the Stars," according to a new report.

Emergency services were called to the studios after the package was found on the lot. Experts insisted the powder was not dangerous, but the item was still sent to a laboratory for further testing.

And now TMZ reports the package came with a demand -- to remove Palin, the daughter of former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin, from the show.

Dumb ass liberals, making a fuss about a dance competition. This is just another reason why we have to defeat these bastards in November, make them crawl back into the hole where they came from.

dmeocRAT, the all-inclusive, big tent party.

Everyone is welcome! Unless, of course, you are an offspring of someone they don't like.

I think they are aware; they hate Bristol almost as much.

I know the liberals in my family do.

"White powder"?

Someone must have thought Obama was on the set and needed blow, "whenever he could get it".

This is really sad. We all better believe that there is evil, and it resides in the new Democrat party. If there are any good people out there who still call themselves Democrats, they better change to being at least Independent because their old party has left them.

Their church was burned, a weird, hating, author moved next door, the filmed shouting attack on Bristol in a night club, horrible jokes and insults directed at the daughters by major national comedians, this, and other things I have forgotten, reveal a family under assault.

There is no democRAT party anymore. Just a bunch of snot-nosed incompetents hell-bent on exploiting the poverty they create.

You forgot to mention TBL. Many Palin haters slithered over there after leaving FR.

What makes you think it was crazed Democrats or Liberals that did this?

The only person who has benefitted politically from terrorizing the Palin family has been Romney and his supporters.

You have no idea what you’re talking about.

I will never vote for a pro-abort or homosexualist. Romney and Obama are both.

I am a life-long conservative and military veteran, neither of which describes Romney or Obama, either.

Romney and his minions threatened the Palin family. If he did it to them, he is capable of doing that to anyone.

When Bristol survives the double elimination next week, the haters are going to claim that this was a hoax by the Palins to generate even more support for Bristol.

Bristol is not the best dancer, but the two eliminated so far were not as good a Bristol. Once Kirstie Alley and Lachey are eliminated, Bristol should be the next to go based on performances so far. She has improved so much and has maintained a humble and gracious attitude.

I know that Romney and his leftwing of the GOP has been attacking Governor, vice-presidential candidate, GOP conservative/tea party leader, Palin since 2008, but they aren’t the element that is burning buildings, and controlling David Letterman/Bill Maher, and sending white powder to DWTS.

The left hates the entire Palin family with a deadly, white hot passion, for reasons closer to what pops88 posted in post 14.

In this instance, the show, ‘DWTS’, itself is encouragaing it too. This happens to be a show that I watch, and I can tell you that the judges were extremely rude and dismissive to young Bristol this week.

But, even worse, on this week’s results show the announcer was doing a voiceover as they showed little 1 minute clips of the contestants’ performances the night before. As they showed Bristol’s clip, the announcer said, “Some contestants came under fire from the judges,” then suddenly a giant CROSSHAIRS appeared superimposed over Bristol. It remained on the screen for at least 15 seconds.

I was so shocked I had to rewind my DVR and verify that I had seen what I thought I saw. Yep, larger than life. It was horrifying.

I was absolutely shocked by the hatred that spewed from the female judge’s mouth after Bristol danced this week. I agree that the show encouraged the suspicious package reaction that followed. They (the judges, network, producers, etc.) should be held accountable in some way, especially after the crosshairs the network superimposed over Bristol during the results show. I think Bristol should file a lawsuit against the network in this case. Hmmmm . . . maybe it is time for the more conservative public to boycott the highly rated show.
