Bristol Palin Insists: I'm Not Homophobic

Bristol Palin Argues Homohobic Comments

All of our mouths dropped when we watched the video of Bristol Palin and Stephen Hanks get into it at Saddle Ranch.

In case you missed it, click here to catch up real quick.

The spat received mixed reviews. Many people disagreed with the man's unprovoked heckling and heavy words, but many also questioned Bristol's comment, "Why do you hate my mom? Is it because you're a homosexual?"

So Bristol is quick to clarify her words, insisting she is definitely not homophobic.

Her rep states:

She was approached in a confrontational and inappropriate manner when two men aggressively shouted expletives aimed at her in reference to her mother. Bristol responded to the unprovoked verbal assault by calmly standing her ground and defending her family. The situation ended with no incident, and accusing her of homophobia is completely unfounded and totally misstates her views.

While we completely agree the man was out of line, we can also understand why eyebrows were raised with her comment.

Though the man is in fact gay, jumping to the conclusion that that's the only reason he could dislike Sarah Palin was a bit rash. Also, a bit delusional.

There is a giant list of reasons why many Americans dislike Sarah, and her anti-equality stance toward the LGBT community is just one of them.

Citizens also question her stance on women's rights, the economy, her clear urge to fuse church with state, etc..

Of course, the heckler didn't mention any of these when Bristol asked for an example, so the argument was a lose-lose.

Bristol is a separate individual from her mother. Her views do not have to be synonymous with Sarah's, and she shouldn't continue to be attacked for her mother's beliefs.

While she did very well at maintaining her temper, maybe next time she should better maintain her words as well.

    So this guy is 'fighting' for his rights as a gay person and at the same time he calls a woman 'a whore', a term that is demeaning for her sexuality and the only problem you see is with Bristol not with him. She didn't even curse at him, she simply asked him if he is homosexual and it turns out that she was right !!!
    Has he apologized for his comments ? Has he got any proof that he isn't a misogynistic creep ?



  2. 2

    You're just one ignorant individual who tries to take trivial matters and blow them up into something they're not. You just threw in a bunch of crap that you yourself was never even a part of the incident. Grow up man. You're the one who called someone a fa-g-g-ot



  3. 3

    He was wrong of course and I would of booted him from my establishment for his outbursts.
    However HER intention was to malign him by accusing him of being a homosexual.



  4. 4

    …but her chin is.



  5. 5

    I am NOT defending Sarah Palin, but… isn't this a bit hypocritical? Why is it okay for this guy to call woman a "whore", but not okay for her to call him a "homosexual"? I don't understand.



  6. 6

    Re: ParalyZzzZzer – You ruined it for me . I cant think of any thing better to say. Except I think there was mention of gay before Bristol said a word and Fergie made Mario cry.



  7. 7

    Still no story about the Texas student suspended for opposing sexuality?



  8. 8

    how is it homophobic? It was a fact. The man WAS gay and it WAS the reason he hates her mom. It's just a fact not a slur. Grow up. Weird how nothing he said you thought was wrong.. the disgusting things that came out of his mouth would want NO ONE to relate to his cause for anything even if it was free kittens for everybody



  9. 9

    Her rep is so much more articulate than Bristol is! Bottom line- Bristol is homophobic because she "accused" the man of being gay. They were in a heated confrontation, not exactly the time to ask personal questions stemming from interest! And if she wants to be a separate entity from her mother, she should try to achieve something on her own. She's living off her mother's infamy, and has to take the criticism that comes with that, can't have it both ways.

    I bet Sarah didn't use a condom when she was getting banged by that black man!



  13. 13

    The whole thing was fake.



  14. 14

    and she also said "cuz i can tell you are"
    what a bitch. get off your horse. the only reason everyone even remotely knows who this bitch is, is because her mom and also the headlines she made getting knocked up as a teen.
    sally jesse is the devil, not sarah palin.



  15. 15

    STFU Perez, dont' you know that guy was being the poster child of how most gays behave? Like a friking liberal crazy nut!



  16. 16

    No, but she does have a hockey puck stuck in her chin.

  20. 20

    Since when do you care about how people treat each other Mario?!?!?!? Let's see your mother get attacked in public and see how you react. I'm sure some of the words that would come out of your angry, shocked, hurt and offended mouth wouldn't be well thought out. Under the circumstances, I think Bristol handled herself very well. Bristol was reacting to being attacked on the spot. Just because she said that doesn't make her homophobic. Everybody's stereotyped, not just the gays, but I can't see many 47 year-old heterosexual men verbally attack a 20 year-old girl in public without getting his ass kicked. Talk about being a bully.



  21. 21

    Clearly she was confronted and provoked. But if your statement is intented to clarify that you're not homophobic, and you describe horrible gay people harassing you and then quietly say those horrible gay people don't deserve to call it homophobia… I don't know whatever I guess my point is that she didn't clarify she's not homophobic in that statement, she said how dare you accuse me of homophobia.. something anti gay people love to say.



  22. 22

    Again hi to everyone who comes out when a gay person does something wrong so you can remind us how horrible we all are. How is everyone doing tonight?



  23. 23

    On a more positive note, her dumb mom is not going ANYWHERE politically. Her stupidity has even turned off the earnest Tea Partyers who supported her at the beginning. She is one dumb C#nt - would NEVER be able to hold her own in a debate. Buh Buh, Sarah, and yer TRASHY family ! Now, go and start that crystal meth lab you were all going to do before this whole vice-presidency thang started up !



  24. 24

    Can we quit treating gay people like they're made of porcelain already? All she did was ask him if the reason he hated her mom was because he was homosexual. And he said, Yeah, pretty much. Because a lot of gay people hate Palin. It's not like she said he was going to hell or was a whore and the anti Christ, you know, like he said about her mom. Give me a break.



  25. 25

    I actually feel a little bad for her. Kids don't get to pick their parents. She seems like a nice girl.



  26. 26

    This is how the Sarah Palin's story will end. Her children will bear the burden of the slanderous things she said with impunity. Sad.



  27. 27

    I am NO Palin fan, but that guy was way too old to pick on a twenty year old girl. Bristol wasn't too wise to go over and confront him. Anything could have happened.



  28. 28

    Bristol, you look fantastic since you lost all the baby fat.
    Great job.

    Meghan McCain must be jealous as hell.

    Now Bristol Palin is a homophobic liar!
    This isn't the first lie she has been caught in though.



  30. 30

    Why doesn't she stay out of bars, since it's illegal for her to drink, stay home instead, get into some flannel pj's, make some brownies and camomile tea, and spend some quality time with the child she created!

    And lovely Sarah IS raising her children to be homophobic, Bristol's sister made similar comments! Apples….tree.



  33. 33

    For awhile, we overloaded on Sarah Palin and wanted to look elsewhere.
    I couldn't deal with the state-run-media trashing campaign, eventhough, they'll try to destroy any of our candidates.
    I didn't want to deal with Palin.
    -
    But, after listening to the Republican candidates, over half of them are Democrat-lite.
    We want the most Conservative candidate to turn this around.
    -
    Sarah still fills our qualifications for what we want done and should be done.
    She's damn good in front of the media now.
    She leads the pack and speaks her mind w/o waiting for a poll a la Romney.
    -
    Perry is not ready for prime time.
    -
    Cain has good Conservative business principles.
    He's a star that can articulate his message. He has a good voice.
    Still need to know more about him.
    It's to important to be surprised about who is in the White House.

    I am amazed that a whore with a bastard child is even someone that you choose to write about.



  36. 36

    YOU HATE HER BECAUSE YOU ARE GAY PEREZ! ALL YOU EVER POST ON YOUR WEBSITE ARE POLITICIANS TALKING ABOUT SEXUALITY!!! SO SAYING A GAY PERSON HATES A CRAZY REPUBLICAN IS PROBABLY A CORRECT ASSUMPTION!!!



  37. 37

    Re: rickraton – A proud gay is not insulted when someone simply asked, do u hate my mom because you are homosexual? I have homosexual friends and family and they are not insulted by that word.



  38. 38

    Perez, you need to relax about politics. Economic issues is what will get or lose votes in 2012, not social issues. Americans do not care what is going on in bedrooms. Americans are concerned about their bank accounts.



  39. 39

    This story reminds me of the time Clay Aiken rudely put his hand over Kelly Ripa's mouth on TV and Kelly did not like it. Rosie O'Donnell screamed on The View that Kelly Ripa was homophobic. Clay was RUDE period. Stephen Hanks is RUDE period.



  40. 40

    @yeez are you kidding me? Black people could vote before women could. Cross dressers/cheating men/all colors are allowed to be president but not women. Women are beaten everyday. Please.. no one is saying gay people haven't been hurt but it's not a race



  41. 41

    she's a pretty girl.. you have to really reach to find a flaw in someone's appearance b/c that's all you people care about. No brains so have to knit pick.. so her chin is like 1 millimeter off? *eyeroll*



  42. 42

    not right to make fun of people so all parties are r bad in this. having said that the Palins have got to b some of the dumbest americans ive ever seen. youd think in the family at least one of them would have an IQ over 60



  43. 43

    she might no be a homophobic, but she's definitely a whore. an ugly whore, that is.



  44. 44

    Re: yeez – totally!! lol!! Bristol did NOTHING WRONG. That feygot goes around picking on other people's mothers?? wtf, typical loser angry gay queen.



  45. 45

    Just so I get this right. He couldn't dislike her simply because he's gay, but a tea party member can dislike Obama simply because he's black? The hypocrisy is amazing.

    It just goes to prove that libs have no sense of decency. With no boundaries, again they take their freedom of speech too far. Bristol did not solicitate his irrational behavior, or request that he comment on her mother. He intruded into her space. The lesson is that libs think they have the answer to every issue, and are unwilling to conduct themselves with basic civility. Libs have debased our once great country.



  51. 51

    Oh my god. This woman is soooo beautiful and cute.

    Re: meggles – How does he hate her? He's standing up for her. Why don't you read the whole post, you illiterate disgrace to the human race.



  53. 53

    Thanks again for blocking my posts again. I said nothing crass. I said nothing disgusting. I challenged you on a topic a cited a gay website as back-up. Do you have the cajones to post this? Basically, you control the content of your blog. There are fictitious posters who randomly pop up when you want a lot of hits. And you ban posts that contain material from other gay political blogs that do not agree with your position.

  56. 56

    Obvious she didn't get any of her mother's looks. Also obvious she lacks much talent. Maybe she can become a great mother…but I doubt she would be willing to work that hard.

    So proud of Bristol Palin! She is a badass! That guy couldn’t give one factual reason why he hated Sarah Palin. Typical liberal. All emotion, no brains. Critics of the Palin’s are calling Bristol a homophobe. Why, because she asked him if he was a homosexual? This incident took place at a bar in West Hollywood, chances are that he was. And she was correct. I’m sure Bristol has had quite a few run-ins with the gay community, considering she’s been living in L.A. these past couple of months. Many of whom that do not like Sarah Palin, because of her position on gay marriage. The same position President Obama holds, by the way. But many gay people don’t seem to have a problem with him. Very hypocritical. By the way, why is no one asking if this guy is a sexist? He called Sarah Palin a whore! I don’t hear much of an outcry over his comments. Double standard? Of course. Liberal logic always escapes me. Liberals and gays are always preaching tolerance. Meanwhile, Bristol got verbally attacked by a gay liberal, and yet, instead of denouncing this clown, they are praising him. Says more about their respective causes than it does about the Palin’s. This guy should've never attacked this poor girl. She was just minding her business, having fun with her friends. He was in the wrong. Period.
