Bristol Palin Lashes Out at Haters After Explicit Tape Goes Viral
Sarah Palin's daughter, Bristol Palin, wants to set the record straight about the reported brawl involving her family and the subsequent police audio recording from the scene. She's blaming the liberal media and Palin haters for blowing it out of proportion.
In a blog post on Patheos.com, Bristol wrote, “Most of the time, I let the lies pass. After all, the truth eventually comes out. But when people are selling 'scoop,' photos, and false information… sometimes the truth just isn't as profitable.”
She continued, “That's why, after a month and a half of hearing rumors about myself and family, I've finally decided to comment about the situation. Instead of listening to all the people who weren't there -- people who claim they heard this from their cousin/brother/sister-in-law/step-daughter/long lost little brother -- let me tell you what actually happened.”
Bristol claimed that a friend of the family, whose name was not mentioned, “got knocked out from a cheap shot from behind” by a man who was tweeting that he was “about to get famous.”
Then the mother of this man pushed Bristol's younger sister, Willow, and when Bristol tried to confront the woman, she was unable to because a “towering man… probably at 6 foot something and over 200 pounds” allegedly yelled, “you c**t! Get the f**k out of here, you sl*t!” at her.
Bristol wrote, “I was alarmed that things had gotten so bad so fast. But it got even worse when this guy started pushing me. He had his hands on me, pushing me down. That's when I swung and hit his face.” She said he held her there “until someone got me out of the situation… That's it -- that's the story.”
The daughter of the former Alaska governor then went on to slam the media for continuing to report on her “conservative” family, while salacious stories about liberal politicians, like Vice President Joe Biden and former President Bill Clinton, go unreported.
Bristol concluded, “Here's the thing. Violence against women is never okay… Even if that violence occurs against conservative women. Imagine for a second the outrage that would happen if Chelsea Clinton had gotten pushed by some guy. Had she tried to defend herself, the liberal media would've held her up as some feminist hero.
“But it wasn't Chelsea. It wasn't Hillary. It wasn't someone they liked or someone they agreed with. It was a conservative. And once again, the hypocrisy of the media is laid bare.”
