Sarah Palin Has No Problem With Daughter Willow Calling Facebook Kids ‘Faggots’

How is mother Sarah Palin responding to the news that her 16-year-old daughter Willow called a schoolmate a “faggot” on Facebook? By blaming the lamestream media, natch!

Appearing on Sean Hannity’s show (on the network where Palin is a paid contributor), the ex-governor and reality television star lays out the defense of her daughter: she is the real bullying victim!

“People probably think that my greatest frustration is the lies that are told in the tabloids and on hateful blogs full of anonymous sources about my family,” says Palin, “and there are constant everyday lies that we have to read that are out there in the public. But my family and I…thick skin…we can take it, you know…we can take what the haters say despite the fact that there’s injustice in the situation. I mean, look at the other day. Willow, finally, my 16 year old, she had had it up to here with somebody saying very, very hateful things about the family and saying mean things about her little brother Trig, and Willow finally responded and she used a bad word when she responded in defense of her family. And her response became national news, even hard news copy it turned into, so that’s ridiculous and I had to explain to her, ‘Willow, there is no justice here but you have to just zip your lip and let’s move forward.’”

Missing from that parental lesson: There is no excuse for calling people homophobic slurs. But this is a woman who campaigned on the idea that gay Americans are less than, so that was to be expected. Or maybe it’s because the boy — Tre — Willow laid in to is actually straight, so what’s the big deal, right?

Also expected: Palin completely misrepresenting the facts. As Mediaite notes, “The exchange to which she refers contains nary a mention of Trig Palin, and was touched off by a single negative comment about Palin’s reality show, Sarah Palin’s Alaska. Palin would have been perfectly justified had she chosen not to get into the details of the story, but since she did, she ought to have described them accurately.”

    Then she should have no problem with me calling her a stupid cunt.

  • tjr101

    How typical of her, play the victim card and blame the media for her/family’s ignorance. This woman is a major douche!

  • Dan

    Wow…This stupid cunt just didn’t get it. did she?

  • joe c

    See, according to her, “faggot” is okay but “retard” is a no-no.

  • Ronbo

    Sad that over 40% of Americans are so fooled by Fox Mews to think that she would be a great President. You are what you watch; so turn off Fox Mews now!

  • Devon

    She and her daughter are a pair of fucking retards.

    Apparently it’s ok for me to say that.

  • adam

    it was Twitter, not facebook.

  • Black Pegasus

    Fuck You Queerty!

    For months before the mid-term elections, you gave republican hate mongers like Palin and others a huge fucking pass because you were so busy HATING our President. So now that you’ve successfully played your part in demonizing the democrats – thus influencing the elections, now you want to change course?

    Let see how many stories you’ll post about the REPUBLICAN CONTROLLED congress and their unwillingness to act on DADT. The TeaBaggers and the Republicans will give the Gays a big hearty FUCK YOU! and you bitches at Queerty have only yourselves to blame.

    Thanks for nothing!

  • Riker

    She’s right, though. A silly girl makes one stupid comment, and we’re blasting it all over the internet and spewing hateful comments for weeks. Must be a traumatic experience for Willow, and i’m sure she’s not going to make the same mistake again.

    I also think her mother probably chastised her in private, just as most parents do. I’m sure any parents in here will understand that when your child screws up and you discipline her, you want the matter to be settled. You don’t want the chastisement to be broadcast across the globe for weeks on end. That would be mortifying for any parent, and humiliating for the child.

    We, as a community, are bullying this poor girl. What if Willow committed suicide after hearing the hateful things said about her and her family? What if Miss Prejean had taken her own life after we did the same to her?

    Tolerance and acceptance have to start with us.

  • Craig

    @Riker: Well she did call someone a faggot just for expressing their own opinion on her mums show, she deserves it.

  • Cubbie

    @teaparty: Do you feel better now? Looks like another teenie-bopper got a hold of his mommies computer while they were out and typed a bunch of mean words. I would have taken you a little more serious if you would have used a different name than “teaparty”. Run along now and play with your barbies and let the adults have a conversation.

  • Ollie2010

    I think that, is bullshit (in the nicest possible way!) – I expect Palin did chastise her in private, but not in the right way. Willow Palin will have been given a telling off not for calling a boy a faggot, but for drawing negative attention to her mother’s media profile. We, as a community, do not need to tolerate such behaviour – tolerance and acceptance to not ever start with the minority group. Imagine telling any other minority that they need to start being tolerant of the oppressor to get ahead. The reason that there is any antagonistic behaviour on our part at all is because we are discriminated against. Whilst I accept that we have bigger foes than Willow Palin, I think its time we started to stand up for ourselves and fight the daily barrage of constant abuse and subtle negative feeling that results from accepting the use of homophobic slurs. The fact that Sarah Palin herself didn’t even address the use of the word and confirm that its wrong is demonstrative of her stance. Whilst she won’t say “gays are wrong” she won’t EVER positively affirm us – because her voter base is mainly white, lower income and religious. Those people have time and time again demonstrated a lack of tolerance and acceptance – and in fact display horrific hostility towards the LGBT community. So whilst it is no longer politically correct for her to go after us, a la Anita Bryant, lots of her voters still feel that way – so this is a subtle positive reinforcing of their bigotry. Whilst not being hateful is obviously the ideal, its genuinely outrageous to propose that the tolerance needs to start with us.

  • Lanjier

    Unlike Obama, Palin knows how to treat her base of supporters. She throws them the red meat they crave. That arugula Obama gives us tastes like shit.

  • jason

    Will the silly cow just go back to Anchorage already??? She’s becoming a laughing stock-reality show contestant milking every drop from the 15-minutes-of-cow-dung-fame bottle. Even her daughter Bristol is hawking the air-waves with her dance routines, which bring new meaning to the demolition derby notion.

  • Brent Matthew Lillard

    Okay… give it a rest people…. Willow’s a teenager. Teenagers say shit like this. God knows I’ve been called a faggot more times than I can count.
    THey are just another family, I wish the media would just leave Mrs. Palin’s kids alone, because they are just people like EVERYONE else.
    Sarah Palin? Well, she’s the public figure, tear HER down if you so wish, but let the kid get away with a slip of the tongue. It’s high school and even I, a fag, has called other people faggot before and no one has cared.

    Now, when Sarah Palin called someone a faggot, which she will not likely do in public, because she is a mature adult, then we can go kick her metaphorical ego all over the place.

  • JoeyO'H

    Sarah Palin is an obnoxious bitch. Whenever someone says anything negative about a group or a person, their “go-to” blame is the media. Copping out their own responsibility and blaming someone else. Seems to be the trait of the Republicans.
    No one seems to take ownership of what they say and do anymore, it’s always finger pointing that seems to be their thing.
    The Palin clan are the poster family for the kookiest family in America. Loser mom = loser children.

  • JoeyO'H

    @Brent: I realize that teenagers say things. That is unavoidable. But Mamma Palin’s response to her daughter’s words is the key issue here. Pailn is always blaming the media. When she couldn’t reveal to Katie Couric of what magazines she reads, she later blamed the media. In fact, she blamed the media through her entire run for VP. That’s what she does, blames the media. Now, she’s blaming the media for what her kids say. Better parenting should be at the top of her list than going on a book tour.

  • Cam

    Because according to Sarah, nothing, is ever, her fault. She can’t answer a simple question that any 12 year old in America could answer? Not her fault, it’s that Katie Couric was tricking her by asking “Gotcha” questions! Can’t handle interviews by other networks? Well they’re just picking on her because she’s “A Girl”. Daughter uses bigoted language? Thats the unfair result of the family being picked on.

    Quits every job she’s ever had? Oh it’s the press’s fault. Nothing is ever her fault.

  • gregger

    @Brent, ummmm, the article is about how Scarah Palin thinks it’s okay for her garbage mouthed-bigot child to use language that now in several states is not okay. You can be assured Willow would not be allowed to call someone [email protected]@ER, K!KE, DIRTY JEW, TOWEL HEAD, CAMEL JOCKEY, GOOK, CHINK, or (gods forbid) RETARD, so it’s okay for her to use the word “FAGGOT” on her Facebook (yes it was facebook) page.

    Brent did you enjoy being called a faggot? I sure didn’t. Just because everybody does something doesn’t make it right and in some states she could face some issues for using hate language.

    I will point out to you that Willow is less than two years away from her majority and that at 16 she is able to have orgies or be married without her parents consent. This is no small child, she is an incipient adult. People in the public eye are are subject to more scrutiny than rest of us, that’s the price you pay for fame. Willow’s parents agreed to have her on the show Sarah Palin’s Alasshole and the Palin family has been trotted out again and again as a pillar of American virtues. There are in the public eye, if they cannot stand it, give up the friending every jackhole on Facebook that “friends” Willow-Bianca Palin or commenting on other people’s pages.

  • peteNsfo

    The mention of ‘Trig’ is a transparent attempt to distort what occurred while simultaneously building outrage & sympathy for the Palins.

    If Palin is so dumb, how come she ‘plays’ the media so well? How come ALL the Republicans do??

    Is there a summer-camp where we can send the Dems, so they can pick up these basic skills of today’s political world???

  • gregger

    @Black Pegasus: Criticizing inaction and policy is different than hating. You can dislike someone’s actions and still not hate them.

    BTW, going back for months Queerty did bash the President over DADT repeatedly. If you look at the same time period a great deal more Republitards (like Meg Whitman, Carly Fiorena, Sean Bielat, and GOProud) got bashed, on policy, hypocrisy, and poor parenting.

    I also have to ask what does this have to do with Sarah Palin’s shitty defense of her daughter’s bigotry?

  • scott ny'er

    I expected nothing more from Palin. It’s exactly what a narcissistic person like her would say.

  • Scotty708

    I cant stand the women. She is so fucking dumb and this just makes it even more clear.

  • JusticeontheRocks

    “Tolerance needs to start with us.” What a load of crap. No one has to be tolerant of bigotry, no matter who expresses it. If the retired governor of Alaska doesn’t like having her family in the spotlight, she can easily fix that problem.

  • Mac McNeill

    What do you expect from trailer trash?

  • Matt M

    ‘But my family and I…thick skin…we can take it, you know…we can take what the haters say’

    She does understand that if you had a thick skin, you wouldn’t let words bother you lol, quick, somebody run up to Sarah Palin and say, ‘Sticks and Stones may break my bones, but names will never hurt me.’ such an idiot. I feel worse for anybody that listens to her or follows her more tho, because like it or not, when ya vote for her, it makes you just as bad as her.

  • gregger

    @Matt M: bravuro!

  • gray hunt

    Typical of you faggots, you can call a person (you dont even know) any vile name and demean their families you want but when someone calls you just what you are…well thats OK, sad, sad people you will never be accepted as main stream Americans with amount of hate in your faggy hearts. Questions ?

  • manicdrummer

    What is it about conservatives that they think they can mouth off with impunity? Liberals are now just as bad, but I would’ve expected conservatives to learn by now. And little brats like Willow-that’s a cute name-will be around for a long time thanks to inferior breeding habits of the right.

  • Ollie2010

    @gray hunt. Faggot is a derogatory term. It is rarely, if ever, employed positively by straight people. Why do you think she called this straight boy a faggot? Its because there is so much hate out there aimed at people who are different from “main stream” Americans. “hate in your faggy hearts”….lovely. I have no hate, just deep sadness that people feel the way you appear to feel.

  • Steve

    @gray hunt: If you feel that way, then please advise Mrs. Palin to go back in time and stop herself from reprimanding people who call others “retards.”

    That’s the irony of this situaton: she freaks out when people use retard in an offensive manner, but when her own child uses faggot offensively, she can just look past it? Give me a fucking break. That’s irresponsible, both as a parent and as a politican. She’s fishing for support, and there’s no doubt retards like you give it to her.

    Also, we can’t call the woman a cunt/bitch/etc. because we don’t know her, yet you can barge in here and call of us strangers faggots? The irony here is both fucking epic and fucking retarded.

    Also, look up the proper definitions of faggot because if you think it properly means homosexual, then you are a fucking retard who apparently hasn’t touched a dictionary in their entire life.

    Anyone who agrees or defends name-calling is fucking trashier than a garbage truck.

  • Faggot

    fag·got [fag-uht]
    Slang: Disparaging and Offensive . a male homosexual.

    1910–15, Americanism ; cf. faggot a contemptuous term for a woman (from ca. 1590), perh. the same word as fagot

  • gregger

    @gray hunt: excuse me little missy but….

    Sarah Palin calls our president “Sambo,” the Sec of State “the Bitch,” tells people that it’s alright for her spawn to call people “faggot” as a means of deriding them, but it’s not okay to call someone “retard,” “tard,” or “half wit.” That strikes me as a little hypocritical.

    If she allows her child to call people “faggot” I have every right to call her a fucking-stupid-mysoginistic-homophobic-xenophobic-CUNT!

  • Faggot

    Wow at all of these overly defensive liberals… If you seriously take offense to this word then you must have not been around a teenager for the last 5 years. It gets tossed around like it’s nothing and that’s because it is nothing. Also, stop trying to seem witty by stating that all the Palin family does is point fingers at the media, and listen to your own party for a change and you’ll hear the same finger-pointing excuses. It works both ways.
    Who cares who she blames; it’s her personal life. Get the hell out of the lives of her family and get your own to worry about.

  • Ollie2010

    @Faggot: What is wrong with you? I have BEEN a teenager in the last 5 years, I know exactly how often the word is used. That DOES NOT MAKE IT OK! Why do you think it does? Lots of slurs are “tossed around like its nothing”, that doesn’t mean they don’t hurt people. Saying “thats gay” and “faggot” in association with things that are negative reinforces a sense of difference in both straight and gay people. It is really really damaging to progress. It is really fucking offensive to be called a “faggot”. I hate to even have to make this comparison but why is it OK for people to say faggot but not the N word? I think both are wrong – but you seem to think not? It isn’t nothing. It really isn’t.

  • Thom Freeheart

    @gregger: OMG. When did Palin call Obama a “Sambo” and Hillary a “Bitch”? That’s horrible.

  • oneaznative

    hmmmmm…..sure seems like a lot of vulgar name calling going on for a thread that is supposed to be outraged at vulgar name calling. Oh, and how many of you are only 16? yeah….that’s what i thought.

  • hephaestion

    The fact that Sarah Palin was able to run for Vice President is the most shameful thing to happen in the history of the U.S.

    The fact that she is taken seriously by anybody is the most shocking testimony to the dumbing of America there is.

  • Steve

    @Faggot: I like that you also copied the fact that when used to describe a homosexual, “faggot” is offensive slang. Thank you for proving that a homosexual is not the proper definition of faggot.

    Also, the word “retard” gets tossed around like its nothing, but when Mrs. Palin hears it, she shits bricks. I guess it isn’t just the fucking faggots that get uptight about deragatory and hurtful slang, is it?

    Plus, I’d love to control my personal life and my personal life alone, but people like Mrs. Palin like to stick their nose in my personal life and restrict my control.

    @oneaznative: I think the vulgar name calling is to prove a point. Obviously, you aren’t sharp enough to pick up on that, are you?

  • Brentinpdx

    @ FAGGOT and Sarah Palin…… “CUNT”- Can’t – Understand – Normal – Thinking!

  • James

    This headline is ridiculous. Palin described faggot as a bad word. She noted that her daughter was being attacked verbally and that she reacted “by using a bad word.” Nothing in her statement makes it sound like she was supporting what her daughter said. Actually this article plays right into what Palin was talking about–people taking little thing she says and blows them out of porportion.

  • gregger

    @Faggot: Okay FAGGOT as your moniker is listed or IGNORANT FAGGOT as it should read, Faggot is a derogatory word originally meaning a lowly woman, in the US meaning a gay man in am extremely bad light. This word has been used to oppress Gay Men for almost 100 years in this nation and possibly as early as in Shakespeare’s writings in the end of the Elizabethan era.

    Sarah Palin is not a private person. Sarah and Todd Palin allowed their children to become public figures when they went on the reality show Sarah Palin Sucks Scum From Manholes, errrrrr Sarah Palin’s Alaska. If you are a public person and want your children to be private people, keep them out of the public eye, ie; not on televison. Take a lesson from Mrs Onassis (Jacqueline B Kennedy) and keep them out of the public eye. If you foist your spawn on the public, the public has the right to criticize your little wads of flesh.

  • Teresa

    @Faggot: Wow, it’s comments like those that have people firing off. Sarah Palin made herself a public figure. She chose to run for Vice President. She chose to go on book tours. She chose to have a fucking reality television show…which I swear I remember her saying that she found “tacky”. You can’t shout to the heavens it’s her private business when she is the one putting it out there. I’m guessing only a ignorant straight person would say that the word “faggot” means nothing because you’re not gay. But any intelligent person would know that word for a gay individual is like hearing the “N” word for blacks. Fuck politics. I can care less about Dems versus Republicans. There’s right and there’s wrong. There’s respect and disrespect and buddy, the Palin family DOES NOT know the mean of both.

  • Teresa

    I will also say this. If remarks were made about her family, she has a right to defend. SHE HAS NO EXCUSE to defend them using a hateful word that does not apply to the situation.

  • gregger

    @Steve: It should be noted that before, then, Gov Palin gave birth to a child with Down’s Syndrome she cut Alaska state funding to special-ed schooling (and increased the amount the state gives to all individuals as a handout without any work toward education, infrastructure, or potential jobs). After she gave birth to Trig Gov. Palin did not restore the funding. So much for being sensitive to the developmentally disabled………..


    Scarah Pallin is nothing more than a rightwing media created empty headed cunt. Her whole public persona is nothing more than a charade. She is absolutly clueless as Murdoch and his minions work in overdrive to get her the repugnatican nomination for 2012. She would be so beholden to him that the office of the President basically a Faux news studio. Every time she opens her mouth she is simply parroting the facts that have been drilled into her head yet she still slips up with her recent comment on how much of a great ally North Korea is to the US……

    From the moment she entered the public state she has been perpetuating a fraud. Anyone remeber when the family was first trotted out at the repugnatican convention? Bristol had Trig drapped over her belly in an attempt to hide her pregnancy. Ever see anyone else carry a baby like that in your entire life?????

    Joe McGunius spent months as her next door neighbor and hopefuly he will publish the definitive story of what a fraud this bitch is. Her son Track (so named because she was “into running” at the time of his birth. He is lucky that she wasn’t into gardening then or he would have been named brocchli :p) was supposdly a hard core meth addict and was given a choice of jail time or enlist in the military. And the best news of all is that Willow that little sunshine spewing shrew may be preggers!! How fucking juicy would that one be??????

    Palinism is a mental disease characterized by delusions of grandeur about being President, and thinking that seeing a Russian island from an American one qualifies her to be president.

    Honestly everyone willow is a fukin teenager, my cousins talk like that. “How gay?” “Stop being a fag” its part of teenage vocabulay. When they say “stop being gay or a fag” meaning “stop being stupid.” Get over it majority of you are uneducated peers, that just find reasons to critize. Its funny Willow saids “gay slurs” or whatever you want to call it. But majority of you are calling these women “cunts.” Give it a rest and focus on your lives, maybe going back to college and being educated on political science and actually learning about the goverment.

    @Daniella Lucaj:

    Do me a huge favor. Send that same info to your fellow HATER Sarah Palin.. tell her to read up on it. Until then, when you put your face and the children of your family out there in the public, then they are on display for everyone to judge. When one of them, or in Sarahs case, all of them are HATEMONGERS, that love to put others down while claiming to be good christians.. expect a little push back when they start using SLURS such as this one.

    You might just take your own advice and clean up your own back yard before you come over in ours and start bossing any one around.

And her response became national news, even hard news copy it turned into, so that’s ridiculous and I had to explain to her, ‘Willow, there is no justice here but you have to just zip your lip and let’s move forward.”

    She might have acknowledged that it was a bad word, but the only person I hear her punishing is the media. Telling Willow there’s no justice, zip a lip and move forward? How about ‘Willow, I know you’re upset but that was a bad choice of word. Watch your mouth.’ Be a mom and step up.

    Typical low level hatred of homosexuals in defending the use of homophobic slurs. Nobody I know uses them. None of the teenagers I have in any of my classes use them. It is typically the under-educated, the incredibly ignorant and the hate-filled who do. These folks need to be educated instead of reacted to with shrugs of indifference or moronic “kids will be kids” sentiments.

    I’m neither a fan of Palin nor people that subject their families to the spotlight via reality shows…

    this is the most retarded thing in the world. she is 16 fucking years old. kids call each other names. shit happens, get the fuck over it. you can call someone a faggot without calling out their sexual orientation. and 2 wrongs dont make a right so anyone calling Palin and her daughter names are just as bad. my god. people need to just get a life. please do that. and everyone arguing, you are making it worse. good job.

    No one wants their kid to be in the spotlight for calling someone a homophobic slur, But the reality is, she’s 16, and old enough to realize her mother was a representive of a state, is an author and spokeswoman who is often a news target and that calling someone a “faggot” isn’t ok. When I was 10 I knew that was a terrible word to use, and I also knew if I used it hatefully, EVERYONE who found out, would have something to say about it..

  • Maryann

    @JoeyO’H: Ding ding ding ding ding! Somebody give Joey a prize. EXACTLY.

    Willow’s just a damn dumb teenager, just like every other damn dumb teenager. But this isn’t about her, per se. It’s about her mother, first, bringing attention to it while complaining about the attention, and second, totally copping out and blaming others. What the hell kind of message does that send, not only to her own kids, but all kids?

    Someone here called Palin a “mature adult.” No. A mature adult would have said on television something to the effect of, “This is a private issue and my husband and I dealt with this in the manner we saw fit.” Then she would have refused to discuss it further, thereby pretty much ensuring an end to the matter.

    But no. She got on T.V. and got all pissy with the very media that’s made her the country’s most obnoxious superstar.

    She says all the time how she doesn’t want her kids to be targets, but she talks about them, points them out, puts them in the spotlight constantly instead of saying “My family are private citizens.” Oh, the attention lavished on the kids is all sunshine to her until someone says something negative. Then “Boo hoo hoo! The big bad media did it again!”

    She’s not a mature adult. She has no ability to handle the spotlight and she’s a complete hypocrite. If you want others to shut up about your family, Palin, quit putting a laser pointer on them!

    @Faggot: I have been a teenager for the past 5 years. As a queer 19yo I know what it is like to hear the term “thrown around”. Lets not forget where the word comes from… “bundle of sticks”… and what were the bundles of sticks for? To burn queer folk (among others). Any person that allows that word to be “thrown around” in normal conversation is clearly not an true American. Are we not a society founded on the statement that “all men are created equal” and that to each is given the rights of “Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness”? Well I’m not happy when people call me a faggot and I sometimes fear for my life when I hear hate monger’s like you who just turn a deaf ear. There are two types of homophobia in this country: Loud and Quiet. We can see and hear the loud ones but we must now hold the quiet responsible for their inaction.

    Don’t you think that, in private, even just to protect her career that she didn’t chastise her? I mean yeah, I’m not fond of Mrs Palin, but children and teens do stupid shit and say things they don’t mean. Especially when dealing with attacks from other people on social websites. It happens, shes in media spotlight, so she becomes an object of ridicule. how many other people out there use that term? Ever hear word of it from the press about it. Grow up.

Grow up.I FULLY love and support the gay and lesbian community, but teenagers say stupid shit, and with social media so redialy available, especially for people in the spotlight, this shit is going to come out. It makes her no less of a parent, just one in the spotlight

    I see no difference in calling someone a “faggot” on a facebook wall and calling someone a “cunt” in the comments of a website. They’re both derogatory terms. Just because someone says one doesn’t mean you should call them another horrible word. Its all the same to me.

    Palin’s the one who has kept this controversy alive. I think she’s smart to do so. People likely to vote for her approve of gay bashing, and approve of the fact that she did NOT discipline her kid for using that word.

    I think many here are missing the fact that Willow’s actions helped Palin :/

    @gregger: hey! a cunt’s a good, useful thing! She, however, isn’t.

  • Timothy (TRiG)

    Are commenters on this story seriously using words like cunt and retard? Seriously? Hello-o-o-o-o-o! Self-awareness?

    Or us it supposed to be some form of irony?

    Oh, go write yourself a BOOK, Pollyanna. Sarah Palin is a nasty, stupid, publicity-hungry CUNT, and her daughter is just an idiot…but then, look at the gene pool she came from.

    So…I bet your ass that you were born into such an ignorant family who had never bothered to teach you any manners growing up! I also bet that you probably must’ve also gone to Westboro Baptist Cult for several years! Anyway, you are one rude, ignorant, racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic little bigot of a redneck! Oh, and gays are not evil nor sick; in fact, gays are people too! Oh, and how would you like that if somebody calls you offensive names?! HUH?! Oh, and please don’t say “fag”, “faggot”, etc., you homophobic ignoramus, because those words are really offensive to gays! Oh, and don’t say “nigger” either, you racist, because that word is equally offensive to African-American people! Oh, and it’s best that you leave Obama and the LGBT community alone! Homophobic much? Bigoted much? Were you really born hateful?

    @Ollie2010: this is a “conservative” troll. Ignore it, flag it and it goes away. Until it can’t resist the urge to look at pics of boys in undies and starts doing his “conservative” propaganda (ur jacking off at pics of men$ work!

    @Maryann: moreover this family has had so many incidents with offensive language the Southern Poverty Center should name the Palins a hate group.
