Slut Shaming Bristol Palin in Bar Brawl

October 24, 2014

According to Bristol Palin, she is just standing up for her 20-year old sister by “confronting” an old woman who pushed “little” Willow. Then, when Bristol “confronted” the “old lady,” some man allegedly pushed Bristol down and called her a slut and cunt:

Palin then says that when she confronted the woman, she was attacked by a man, who pushed her down and dragged her across the grass, saying, “You slut, you fucking cunt.” Palin says on the recording that someone took her $300 sunglasses and shoes.

What is Bristol Palin’s response to why she confronted an “old lady” about pushing her sister? Classy…

“My little sister comes over to me and says ‘some old lady just fucking pushed me, she just hit me,’” Bristol Palin says in the recording. “Oh fucking hell no, no one’s gonna touch my sister.”

Of course in Palin-land, pushing requires physical confrontations, or so it would appear, and a bar brawl single-handedly instigated by the famously quipped “Momma grizzly in lipstick” brethren begins.

True, it doesn’t read any more white trash than the Palin family, from their overabundance of children, to their undereducated morass of public commentary (“I can see Russia from Alaska…”), but it’s entertaining, if nothing else. Who among us doesn’t like to pick apart the storied factual fuck-ups of the Palin family? If we didn’t have them, who would we have? The Bush family doesn’t even do much anymore. The Hilton’s speak too little to really get into a factual analysis. Michelle Bachman pulls a close second, but people even got tired of her. So, the real question is: why not rubberneck at the Palin family? It’s a good show.

The problem is that little Bristol is obviously sexually active, as proven by her teenage pregnancy, and publicly commented on her sexual activity with hollow protestations of her marriage plans that evaporated after her mother’s presidential politicking ended (would you ever have imagined we could ever put Palin and presidential politics in the same sentence a few years ago? neither could I…). No, it’s more that in a brawl a man decides to physically hurt Bristol Palin while calling her a “slut” and “cunt,” and then the sexual shaming comes in that is unacceptable.

Sometimes I want to smack Bristol Palin, but never to shame her sexuality. I think she makes bad choices, then talks about those bad choices in a way that makes her look even worse on television. She seemed to capitalize on her bad sexual choices resulting in a firestorm of a media circus akin to: look what the little teen momma can do when she keeps her legs together and admits that sex at 16 is wrong. In that sense, Bristol made all the wrong choices about sex, but it sure as hell is not some random bar dude’s place to physically attack her for her bad teenaged sex decisions. And, one could argue that with Sarah Palin as a mother, Bristol had no choice but to make bad choices and say the wrong thing–it’s in her genes. Sarah Palin lauded Bristol’s bad choices every time.

A police report released earlier this month identifies Korey Klingenmeyer, a host of the party, as the man who allegedly pushed Bristol Palin to the ground. The report says Palin punched Klingenmeyer multiple times.

Palin told the officer on the recording that she had injuries to her face and knees, and that her 5-year-old son was waiting for her in a car.

Prosecutors have said they won’t press charges in the brawl.

Sarah Palin defended her family in a Facebook post accompanied by pictures of Bristol Palin holding a gun after reports of the brawl emerged last month.

“I love my Bristol! My straight-shooter is one of the strongest young women you’ll ever meet. I have to say this as a proud mama: right up there with their work ethic and heart for those less fortunate, my kids’ defense of family makes my heart soar!,” Sarah Palin wrote.

Everyone mama grizzly is proud of a bar brawl with a 5-year old child in the car. One could argue that getting into a bar brawl with your kid in the car could be a CPS investigation, but it seems like par for the course with the Palin family. Here is what happens when the Palin family attends a Klingmeyer family birthday party:

  • Bristol Palin told the officer the family had attended a birthday party at the home of Korey Klingenmeyer. At the party, Bristol says she confronted a woman whom younger sister Willow Palin said had “pushed” her.
  • According to Bristol, the party’s host, Korey, “pushed [Bristol] down to the ground” and “called her a ‘slut’ over and over.” Then someone stole Bristol’s shoes and sunglasses.
  • “Korey told me he had been hanging out in his back yard with approximately 20 other guests when Bristol Palin had approached the group saying she was going to ‘knock that bitch out.'”
  • “[Bristol] stated she didn’t know who Korey was and then said that Korey had drug her across the lawn by her legs and was calling her a cunt and a slut.”
  • Korey said he was “angry that the Palins had showed up and were causing the problems.”
  • “Bristol and her sister came up to the home owner in the back yard. [Korey] was asking her not to do anything there because it was a birthday party, and she punched him in the face 6 times” before “a bunch of wives tackled her ass.”

 

This shit is for real; that is a series of excerpts from the police report. “Defending her sister”/punching old women in the face. Who is to know. What we should allow is the use of the term “slut” to “discipline” someone. Sounds like the brawl was a full family affair, but why wasn’t Sarah Palin called a slut? For real, let’s just keep these fights clean, people…
