Yesterday, President Obama fully endorsed same-sex marriage rights which, whether it was a contrived political calculation or not, still marks an historical moment when an American president has come out in support of an extremely controversial topic that of course was immediately spun as a war on Christianity and marriage, but none of that’s as hilariously stupid as Bristol Palin‘s latest blog post, so we’ll stick to that. Here she is criticizing Obama for claiming his two daughters helped motivate his decision before literally saying with a straight face that children are better off being raised by a mother and a father:
While it’s great to listen to your kids’ ideas, there’s also a time when dads simply need to be dads. In this case, it would’ve been helpful for him to explain to Malia and Sasha that while her friends parents are no doubt lovely people, that’s not a reason to change thousands of years of thinking about marriage. Or that – as great as her friends may be – we know that in general kids do better growing up in a mother/father home. Ideally, fathers help shape their kids’ worldview.
Setting aside the fact that parents being raised by a male and a female parent is a debunked horseshit Christian talking point, Bristol Palin is a single mom whose own god-fearing, “pro-family” mother actively uses her lawyers and political clout to keep Levi Johnston away from his son just for spite. But then again, that’s involving reality in the discussion which everyone knows has a liberal bias. (*tips hat* Mr. Colbert.) So using Bristol’s own logic, she might as well toss her son at a pack of wolves because it doesn’t have a father and will probably just grow up to watch Glee. Oh, did I mention she takes a swipe at Glee? She takes a swipe at Glee:
Sometimes dads should lead their family in the right ways of thinking. In this case, it would’ve been nice if the President would’ve been an actual leader and helped shape their thoughts instead of merely reflecting what many teenagers think after one too many episodes of Glee.
“Haha! It’s funny ’cause that show has faggots in it.” – Bristol Palin reading over her ghostwriter’s shoulder.
