Sarah Palin Defends Daughter's Homophobic Rant!

| Filed under: Icky Icky PooGay Gay GayPolitikSarah PalinLGBT


Oh, isn't this woman just a piece of work?

Sarah Palin's 16 year old daughter, Willow, came under fire recently for lashing out via Facebook and calling a schoolmate a homophobic slur, and now, the former Vice Presidential candidate is attempting to spin what happened - and blame it on the media!

She claims:

"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, 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.'"


Obviously, we didn't expect much from her, but we just LOVE how she's pretending that the only reason her daughter would use such a word is because people were poking fun at her brother…even though the comment that initiated the exchange HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH HIM, and was actually a negative comment about the Palin's reality show!

What a great message to send your kids - it's okay to lie, so long as it keeps you from having to take accountability for your mistakes!

Well done, bb! As always!

    Look, I'm in NO WAY a Palin fan - but - I am sure there is SOME truth to what she's saying. When I was a kid, I got in trouble for swearing or saying certain words that are inappropriate - and when Willow reacted, she did just that. Cut the girl SOME slack. She's apologized (no matter how half-assed) and shes' still growing up. I'm sure she's not going to use those words again. I swear, you really sit up in an ivory tower Perez. As a Christian, one who WANTS equal rights, I hear you call me bigoted names on a regular basis. The girl shouldn't have to deal with this every second for the rest of her life.

    Once again Palin is right on…liberals can't cope with common sense.

  4. 4

    stop making it a gay thing…the kid probably wasnt homosexual…she didnt just attack him out of the blue…she was defending her family, and i would do the same thing…that guy was not a victim..she was a victim to HIS bullying….

  5. 5

    Palin's kid should not have made her remark, and you and others have ripped her for it, many times. Now can we talk about the people who have been ripping the child with autism, claiming dwts votes were "rigged," and dissing bristol for being "fat" (aka normal for most of us). Rudeness goes both ways.

  6. 6

    Can she just go away. She makes our country look stupid.

  7. 7

    Leave the Palins alone!! It certainly wasn't an issue to you when the liberal media was making jokes about her young daughters. BACK OFF!!

  8. 8

    You and Joy Behar are so obseesed with the Palins…it's disturbing. You keep posting on the Palins just to solicit more insults and reaction from all the Palin haters. I don't agree with most of Sarah Palin's politics but I hate to keep reading about her every move. Just move on Perez.

  9. 9

    Re: dialysisdarling – wow, you don't get it.

  10. 10

    and another thing if you wannabe president why would you do a reality show?!! No ones gonna take you serious

  11. 11

    So, Perez, what about you and your calling will.i.am a gay slur, or calling women bitches and whores? Somehow, we're supposed to forgive a grown man who should know better…but not forgive the teenage girl? Right. I'm no fan of Palin either, but one thing is for sure, it's disgusting the way the media and bloggers like Perez attack her children. You never heard Republicans going after people's kids like that.

  12. 12

    i dont care.

  13. 13

    She was defending her family, BUT with ignorance and hate. Gay slurs are unacceptable. Just apologize, because by making excuses and justifying your daughter's behavior just shows us your true ugly colors.

  14. 14

    Re: pie107
    Palin was not the one who brought her son into it; the guy taunting the family did

  15. 15

    WTF is your OBSESSION with the Palin's??? Get over it, Perez! People (conservatives) like them and you just can't stand it! You would never disrespect the Obama's and their kids and their family at every chance you could. You're a typical liberal, why don't you understand that 70% of this country leans more conservative?

  16. 16

    YOU have used the very same word. Hyprocrite, thy name is Mario.

  17. 17

    Okay, this whole this has been majorly blown out of proportion! Yeah, she was wrong to use the words she did - but that generation dishes around those words like its nothing. I agree, it's wrong and can be deemed hurtful to the gay population, which is very sad. HOWEVER - I highly doubt this girl meant it the way everyone has blown it out to be. Was the kid she called the "F" word even gay? I don't think so… He obviously used this to get national attention. To everyone reading on here - how many of you have used bad words without the horrible definition in mind at all? Take for instance, the saying "Thats so gay." She's 16, she made a mistake. She wasn't attacking gays, she was just being a 16 year old with a crappy vocabulary. This is just ridiculous!! I'm sure that 99% of you have said something similar to someone in your lives - and I'm sure the majority of you did not mean it to seriously hurt a group of people not even involved. BTW - the palins aren't even that interesting… don't you people have anything better to gossip about? Willow, I've got your back on this one. Just don't say it again girl!

    Oh my god , a mother sticking up for her daughter. What horror. Get a grip, she is just being a mother. Your hate of Palin is so great , you write about her everyday, Which gives republican even more reason to hate your pedophile ass.

  20. 20

    Suppose we shouldn't be surprised by Perez here, he's the biggest hater in the world… he's un-American.. he should be deported to some neutral country… maybe a Muslim country since they love gays so much :-)

    "Please excuse my daughter, Willow, she is a republican in training and hasn't learned how to be fake and deceitful in public."

  22. 22

    This issue hasn't been talked about for a week or so - until Sarah brought it up again with a political spin to make it seem like Willow was defending her baby brother. Sarah is the one keeping this alive. Anything for publicity.

  23. 23

    The opportunity to teach her daughter from her choice of her words seems lost.

  24. 24

    Re: MissFortune311 – Do you really think the Palins want to be left alone? Hardy. The Real Housewife of Alaska will use anything to keep her name in the headlines.

  25. 25

    YOU USED THE SAME WORD HYPOCRIT….GAWD, why dont you have an ounce of decency Perez? You hate the woman so much, you can't see clearly. Why dont you try and forgive others as you forgave yourself loser.

  26. 26

    Re: TheMrsBradPitt – Apparently not - bc the whole situation is ridiculous.

  28. 28

    Re: rosebud99 – NO, she isn't the one. Check out the liberal sites. Willow is mentioned over and over again. And YOU, MARIO/PEREZ- GET OVER IT!!!! She is a 16yo who LASHED OUT. When I was in High School, the word in question was used to describe people who were not cool. NOT GAYS! and this country is getting so messed up. Can't even print or say that word, or the N word, but some can, if they are of that group. But it is okay to use swear words where ever and you can call straight white people ANYTHING, and it is okay-because if we did not put down someone, our ancesters did. it is just making more and more people angry-political correctness-UNTIL THEY CAN'T TAKE IT ANYMORE.

  29. 29

    These people are seriously deranged and paranoid. God help us all if she actually gets into a position of power.

  30. 30

    and Mario, WHAT IS IT WITH YOU AND JOY BEHAR (AND TED FROM E!) ATTACKING HER ALL THE TIME? There are others that have the same view as her. She is a really grounded person, unlike MOST POLITICIANS. Yes, she says things that are 'not politically correct'. I actually pefer it to all the people in politics that you HAVE NO IDEA WHAT THEY ARE THINKING BECAUSE EVERYTHING IS PRE WRITTEN, rehearsed, and trained into them. Why don't listen to EVERYTHING obama says, especially without his monitor. But, you won't do that, because he is a liberal.

  31. 31

    Blah blah blah.
    Sites like this one are part of the problem since they give these assholes publicity.

  32. 32

    The posts I saw said nothing about Trig. The guy (also a "kid," I presume) said Palin's reality show was "failing." Sarah makes not only herself but her family a center of attraction - and then cries victim. I think she loves it all, loves the money and the publicity. I think it's possible that at some point, though, her children may look back and feel they were used.

  33. 33

    Re: TheMrsBradPitt – Honestly, what's not to get? Anything that comes out of your mouth could be an insult. You call someone a bitch, a woman will take it personally; you call someone a prick, a man will take that personally. Gay is not fucking different.

    I guess I have to make this preschool to all the fucking retarded (oh there's another one) liberals, it's an insult! People get ANGRY. When people get angry, people say things they don't mean in that manner, but they know it will hurt someone that is hurting them. We have ALL done it in life and it makes everyone look like fools when they act like "omg that is so terrible, people don't get why it's wrong of her?" when this happens everyday all over the damn world.

    So therefore, there is nothing NOT to get about this? Perez is making it a big deal because I think deep down he hates himself and doesn't like being gay, so every little thing that HE thinks has to do with gays, destroys him.

    You say Perez, good mom for teaching her kids to lie… Well I'd like to know where the fuck your mom has even been all your life? You're SO messed up and this little "I don't hurt peoples feelings because of (yet again, GAY only bullying)" is bullshit. You're a nut case and you need help buddy!

  34. 34

    Re: tiggerchick5 – Exactly! Well said!

  35. 35

    Re: FeyDay – The guy never actually said anything about anyone in the Palin family. He merely said that their reality show sucked. Sarah found it difficult to justify her daughter's unreasonable reaction to his comment so she spun the situation so that it would favor her and her family. Trig was never even mentioned

  36. 36

    Re: Justsomeguy – I agree 100%!

  37. 37

    I'm by no means a fan of Sarah Palin and I do think that she completely missed the opportunity of teaching Willow (and even her supporters) the lesson of choosing better words in defending herself against the family's naysayers. However, I'm surprised that you decided to point this incident out and yet have no comment regarding Nicki Minaj and her team allowing Eminem's homophobic verse in the song Roman's Revenge. But, you're not the only one. Almost no media outlet or blog (not even the Advocate) have talked about the verse in the album even though Nicki claimed in an interview to be a supporter of the gay community. Is it because Sarah isn't and Nicki is that you only have a problem with Sarah? Is it because your blog promotes Nicki? I just find myself puzzled by this. I actually like Nicki Minaj as well, but I have a lot of trouble with the album because of that song. Hope you read the comments.

  38. 38

    Re: Beccx – Fuck you, you stupid bitch.

  39. 39

    More bullshit from the moron who can't even handle soft questions from her fuck buddies at Fox News. LOL.

  40. 40

    I agree 100% with what she said. Why is a child's fight with another child on a social networking site national news, regardless of who her parent is. Do you really believe that Sarah Palin is a homophobe? I don't, and I'm quite sure that Bristol Palin isn't either, as clearly, she just did "Dancing with the stars!!!" Words can't have any power if you don't give them power, and her intent was to strike back at someone attacking her mom! I would have done way worse when I was sixteen! PUH-LEASE!

  41. 41

    Here's a thought: If you don't like the way you and your family are portrayed in the media, GET OUT OF THE MEDIA. Palin's griping is as silly as that of a movie star who shows up to The Ivy and then complains about papparazzi. Palin signed up for a reality show involving her family, Bristol signed up for a reality show, Palin signed up for FOX … It's called ASKING FOR MEDIA ATTENTION. Deal with it or quit asking for it! BOO HOOO HOOOO.

  42. 42

    I would so give Sarah the 'poop n' wash!' (bum to mouth). Mmmmm… fit, MILF!

  43. 43

    She's the personnification of the adage "Give a person enough rope and they'll hang themselves." I still can't believe that there are Palinites out there who think she's the second coming of the savior. God help us all.

  45. 45

    This coming from a guy who called Derek Hough "gayface" every chance you got. Eff off.

  46. 46

    Kids do stupid things, but that doesn't mean she shouldn't be punished for what she did. Hopefully she was educated about how hurtful her remarks were, and how inappropriate they were. Maybe now she'll learn not to rise to the bait and let her emotions take over. As for the kid who shared his opinion about their show - it's his opinion. The show does suck, the Palin's just need to let their ego's deflate a little bit. If this chick runs for President, and actually gets elected - the US will be the laughing stock of the world! They're already half way there for having elected Bush twice in a row! And Obama is just keeping the insanity level even right now. It's really sad to see how the mighty US of A has fallen.

  47. 47

    Re: Secret Message – She'd be a hell of a lot better than your asswipe Obama is.

  48. 48

    All the guy did was put down the tv show! And for that he got called gay, a f*g and a queer. I'm not at all surprised by Sarah's defense of her daughter. She has the intellect of a fucking gerbil. Is she REALLY the best the U.S. right wing has to offer?

  49. 49

    Wow. The entire Palin family is such a piece of work. What Willow said was 100% inappropriate, and Sarah refuses to take responsibility as a parent and say that those words should not be in her daughters vocabulary, no matter what. Instead she lies to defend her daughter (anyone who actually read the exchange know the boys Willow lashed out on made a reasonable comment about disliking the reality show, and there was nothing to do with Trig or his disabilities). Willow is a teenager and yes, sometimes they use hurtful words without realizing the full effect and I'm sure it's difficult for her to have her mistakes displayed before the entire country, but Sarah needs to be a real parent and teach her daughter to learn from her mistakes instead of making up excuses for her family. I'm disgusted that this woman has had the opportunity to be Governor (a post she quickly quit to achieve stardom) and was running for VP and has Presidential aspirations. She can't even parent her own children, why should she think she's qualified to run this nation?

    Re: tiggerchick5 – To be fair, Glenn Beck went after Obama's children before.

    Re: mustbenargles – I call them like I see them. Now, why is it that because I think this woman as nuttier than fruitcake I am "against" you? He isn't "my" Obama, although I suppose she is "your" Sarah. Good luck with that.

  54. 54

    Re: Secret Message – I never said because someone doesn't agree with me that they are against me. I don't like the Palin's either. I'm just saying, people act like Obama is a fucking angel. He's got shit up his sleeve and I'm sure his daughters arent as sweet as they look.

    Ask if I'm for Palin before assuming. Another idiot liberal reaction, assumptions.

  55. 55

    When is America going to tell her to shut up? She can't open her mouth without lying or sound completely stupid. How was this woman ever elected into any office? She shouldn't even be considered for president. If the GOP's vote her in, they'll be guaranteeing a Democrat after her reign of terror. Im just so sick of republicans, especially one's like her. Im going to move to a different country. America's just going down the drain.

  56. 56

    Re: FeyDay
    Im sure you agree with that stupid woman's comment's on Michelle Obama trying to do something about obesity. It's so sad that 60% of this country is obese. It's because they aren't healthy, but Im sure you'll blame the 'liberal media' for all of the stats on obesity.

  57. 57

    Re: nicky45Re: JustsomeguyRe: mustbenargles

    I can't reply enough. All of you idiots insulting perez hilton forgot one thing. Does he want to be president? Is he in politics? Ahwiohagklshg'l∫∑ådklsbv'bwklsnpgv'WN

    GO GET AN EDUCATION. Then maybe the news sites or stations you disagree with wouldn't be labeled 'the liberal media'. You throw that word around all the fucking time. Do repubs troll this site just to call perez names or make jabs about the Obamas? Do you people realize the mess that was left for him to clean up? You obviously only see what you want to see. You all must want this country to collapse. As long as some right wing bigot is in office right?

  58. 58

    while I don't think what willow said was ok i fully understand why her own Mother would defend her. Not many parents would just let their kids take a lot of heat and be ok with that.

  59. 59

    Not a fan of them, but you're saying it's wrong to defend your family? ;o

  60. 60

    I can't stand Palin, but her kid is young and stupid like a lot of us were. People say those things and post that crap all over the internet and don't think about their actions yet like they really should.

    Being in a family that has multiple members who are gay/lesbian, I can understand some of the frustration going around, but they barely ever complain about every little thing like you do.

    Even though that "F" word has had multiple meanings in it's history, I still have no idea how it went from meaning bundle of sticks to a slander to gays/lesbians. I guess with the negative power it has now, no one should use that word she used, including gays/lesbians if they want it to be taken seriously. You lost a lot of credential when you used that same word in anger towards a certain celebrity a little while back. You did the exact same thing Palin's daughter did, so you should probably understand that a little better.

  61. 61

    Re: imboredandyouveruinedmypants – No dumbass i dont expect him to fix the mess immediately. He has made it worse , particularly with his idiotic health care and lack of security for our country. In the words of dennis miller "The democrats have a war room for everthing but war"
    By the way i am educated with a master, and by your nonsense you are in high school so i forgive you for being stupid.

  62. 62

    She makes the country look stupid because it is stupid. All we need now is a reality star for president. She can't get anywhere unless she is supported and unfortunately this is what is happening. This country is one big dysfunctional reality show. It is embarrassing.

  64. 64

    Palin's harsh words for Michelle Obama make no sense, either. To her, it's the liberal government telling people how to raise their kids. HOWEVER, a few republican first ladies have had causes they support, too. Laura Bush and childhood literacy, Nancy Reagan and Just Say No to drugs. Did Palin find THAT upsetting? I mean, how dare anyone tell her kids to read and not do drugs!!!!

    Re: mustbenargles

    I can't believe I'm even wasting my time to respond to someone with the maturity and intelligence of a flea. This was pretty much a dead story until Sarah brought it up again. She - and you - would have been much better off to keep the yapper shut.

    I imagine Michelle Obama sitting down with her daughters and saying the same thing to her daughters about all the ignorant rants that come out of your mouth everytime you open that trap of yours and spew your idiotic comments I keep praying an avalanche , bear, whale something in your beloved Alaska will take you out Sarah. Your double standards never stop amazing me. Ofcourse you are laughing alllll the way to the bank.

  78. 78

    while I am in no way a Palin supporter, i just had to leave a comment. WHO GIVES A SHIT??? she's a 16 year old! apparently no one else has been a teenager before. palin is ignorant, yadda yadda… why are we still talking about them? as many, many people have said in previous comments: perez just because you've made this 'life change' and you're supposedly such a nice guy now doesn't mean people have forgotten the things you've said about other people. 'maniston' 'gayface'… the list goes on and on. i've been a huge fan of this website for about 5 years but you need to get a grip. why ARE you so obsessed with the palins? are you really that scared that she'll be in a position of power some day? everyone knows she doesn't have a chance in hell. long story short: GET OVER IT.

  79. 79

    I don't like Palin, but Willow is 16. She can make her own damn desicions, and Sarah doesn't have to answer for her daughter's remarks. Willow shouldn't have said those things, but it has nothing to do with Sarah. You try to control what a 16 yr old says.

  80. 80

    Any mother would defend their child, no matter the comments made. And to be honest Perez, Bullying will never stop, Gay marriage will probably never be passed, War will never end…You Americans are too afraid of change! I'm not trying to be disrespectful but it's true.

  81. 81

    i would take a bullet for my family. quit giving palin shit for defending hers. what's she supposed to do, call her daughter a stupid whore? seriously, perez, get off her ass.

  82. 82

    Oh shut the fuck up!! How do you know this kid didn't make comments about her brother in another situation? Maybe this kid has antagonized Willow in the past. You don't fucking know. The shitty thing is that teenagers say this shit ALL the time, but because she's Sarah Palin's daughter it was made into this big deal. WHATEVER! Parents can't always control what their kids say or do. It doesn't make them a bad parent!

  83. 83

    To those of you saying how natural it for a Mom to defend their kid; it depends on the situation. Under these circumstances, Palin should be APOLOGIZING for her kid. They are a public family and Palin should be saying that, hopefully, Willow has learned a lesson…and will be more mindfull of her ways in the future. But Sarah Palin doesn't give a shit because we all know how most Holy Republicans feel about the gays. She probably laughed at the slurs used…

  84. 84

    Wake-Up People!
    This is the real Sarah Palin, Family & ideals!
    They think they are always right - no mtatter what they do or for any reason.

    There is no defense for homophobic slurs!
    Everytime one of the Palins do something they are criticized for - it is NOT their fault - Ya Right!?!
    Do you want Sarah palin influening the American people & what America stands for????

  85. 85

    I could do without hearing about Palin and her brood. Stop making them more famous. They are gross people who have nothing constructive to say or do. They are the epitome of Republican twats. People who defend their own bullshit and put others down. Good example is the hatred SP spews towards the Obamas, esp. Michelle.

  86. 86

    Re: buck – yes she is right. she's right in being a perfect example of conservatives like you are totally ignorant of the era they live in. you know in the 5th century B.C. men had male lovers and they weren't ostracized from society for it? so w/all the DADT, anti-gay culture we have now that means we've actually reversed human progressed to pre-5th century history…. proud of tha, aren't you, you ignorant bastard? i don't what the hell the kid said abotu her family. palin's still supporting homophobic rants and i sure as hell would rather see Koko the gorilla that communicates w/sign-language as the next president before palin makes a joke of the U.S. by being elected. smile, there's enough ugly in the world without your hate

  87. 87

    It's funny Perez you give Obama a hard time because his administration (you think) haven't did enough for the gays and if this crazy bitch would have been in office you might have been taken out and shot for being gay while she throws her crazy holy juice on you.
