Sarah Palin spoke out against the humiliating audio of her family drunkenly attempting to explain away their antics at a birthday party that caused a drunken 20-person brawl to explode. According to Track Palin, the fight began when a guy “who is basically gay, but he’s not” attacked his friend Steve, then jumped him from behind, causing an eye injury (yes, we know).
Bristol Palin says that her part in the brawl consisted of party host Korey Klingenmeyer shoving her for no reason. According to Bristol, he “came out of nowhere and pushes me on the ground… takes me by my feet, in my dress… my thong dress in front of everybody. Come on you c**t, get the f**k outta here! Come on you s**t get the f**k outta here.”
Klingenmeyer and everyone else, however, say the Palins were drunk and belligerent, and started a fight they could not win.
Bristol Palin lashed out at the “liberal media” and its “lies,” painting herself as an innocent who was viciously assaulted by Klingenmeyer, somehow omitting her own actions and words. The Palin daughter seemed perfectly content to simply pretend the fight did not happen — and now Mama Grizzly has gotten involved in the attempt to whitewash the events.
On Facebook, Sarah Palin explained that the media is conducting a “war on women” by mocking her family’s antics. After urging people to read her daughter’s one-sided account that contradicts not only her own words to police in the audio, but witnesses and facts, Palin explained that her kids, who have done nothing but play the “victim card,” aren’t “playing the victim card.”
I understand that the CNN host who laughed at my daughter describing her assault has issued an apology to Politico. (Why Politico needs an apology is anyone’s guess. No one at CNN contacted my family regarding an apology, in case you were wondering. CNN contacts us directly on a regular basis with inquiries and requests for comment, so it’s not for lack of contact information that they didn’t reach out. But perhaps Carol Costello should phone Martin Bashir. He knows how to reach us.)
What happened on the night in question wasn’t funny. It was humiliating and frightening. The broken ribs, black eyes, and messed up elbows and knees suffered by people in our party that night were no laughing matter. Neither were Bristol’s bruises on her arms and leg from being dragged by a man. My kids aren’t proud of what happened, nor are they seeking sympathy by playing the victim card – that’s why they haven’t commented on this for all these weeks. Instead, they had to have faith that the truth would come out, despite those who did the cold-cocking actually using social media to brag, “’bout to get famous!” Screen shots of tweets captured their bold intentions, and they’ve certainly enjoyed the publicity.
Looking at the reports, it strikes me as bitterly ironic that the same people who tell us there is a “war on women” have no problem laughing at the recording of my daughter crying as she tells police about being assaulted by a man. I’d like to say shame on the media and those on the left laughing at her or at any young woman in a similar situation, but I no longer think they have any shame.
Palin did not explain why police described her precious little snowflake as “angry and intoxicated,” or why her daughter’s story so blatantly contradicts every single other account, aside from an anonymous “friend” of the Palin family.
Audio seems to confirm that video exists of the incident. If the Wasillabillies aren’t lying, why aren’t they demanding that the person who shot the video come forward. That would be a simple solution, right?
