Sarah Palin is mad as hell and is not going to take it anymore!
As we reported, the former VP hopeful received backlash after posting a photo on Facebook of her 6-year-old son, Trig, standing on top of their dog, in what many claimed was a clear act of "animal cruelty."

Well, the former Alaskan governor is firing back at critics and boy, did she not mince words!
Over the weekend, the 50-year-old posted a message on her FB defending the photo and denied any wrongdoing whatsoever.
Her message opened with:
"Dear PETA, Chill. At least Trig didn't eat the dog"
In her full explanation, the politician claims she is unfairly being criticised because she is a Republican and PETA is a liberal instituition. She cites two examples — one where Ellen DeGeneres posted a similar photo, and another where Barack Obama once admitted to eating dog meat — and neither instance garnered the same amount of flack that Palin received.
At the end of the post, the politician firmly believes she has given nothing but love to both her son and her dog.
"Our pets, including Trig's best buddy Jill Hadassah, are loved, spoiled and cared for more than some people care for their fellow man whose politics may not mesh with nonsensical liberally failed ways or don't fit your flighty standards. Jill is a precious part of our world. So is Trig."
Do YOU think Sarah Palin is a victim of a liberal double standard?!
