Bristol Palin, the eldest daughter of former Alaskan Governor Sarah Palin, is calling out the doubled standard in the #MeToo campaign. Bristol smacked the Left in a blog post published on Friday for being perfectly comfortable with celebrities and media personalities sexually harassing her mother and sisters, yet seemingly outraged when lesser attacks are launched at those on the other side of the political aisle.
And Bristol named names.
“What we need to look at is a real TRUE standard that needs to be set. But here’s a question. How do we pick and choose whom to hold accountable? Why aren’t we looking at all of the sexual harassment?” asked the 27-year-old.
“Why are some things 'just a joke' for some, and serious offenses for others? The solution is to come together and treat sexual harassment the same, no matter what side of the aisle you may be on," she continued.
Bristol went on to call-out those who made inappropriate sexual comments about her mother and sisters by name, starting with Fox News' Chris Wallace.
“When Chris Wallace was asked if my Mom would be sitting in his lap for an interview, he responded, 'One can only hope.' Did Wallace receive any consequences for this kind of sexual harassment? None. No one at Fox radio batted an eye with his violent misogynist rant — in fact, he’s still celebrated,” she wrote.
Next, she slammed David Letterman for his vile sexually-charged comments about her then-14-year-old sister:
Then, there was this. David Letterman “joked” about my 14-year-old sister getting knocked up by Alex Rodriguez at a Yankees game in 2009 — also saying the biggest problem my parents would have in New York would be keeping Elliot Spitzer away from my sister. Elliot Spitzer, if you don’t recall, was New York’s governor in 2008, a man who had to resign in the midst of a scandal concerning his solicitation of prostitutes.
"[W]hat consequence did Letterman receive for joking about the rape of an underage girl?" she asked rhetorically.
Bristol also noted of Twitter seemingly being onboard with rapper Azeala Banks' reprehensible comments about her mother.
“Then, there’s Azeala Banks. This rapper’s Twitter account remained OPEN after these tweets about my mom just in 2016: 'Sarah Palin needs to have her hair shaved off to a buzz cut, get headf**ked by a big veiny, ashy, black dick then be locked in a cupboard,'" she wrote.
Mike Tyson, too, said vulgar things about Mrs. Palin:
Tyson was asked if he’d vote for my mom for allegedly being “open to having sex with black men.” He can’t vote, of course, being a felon, but he said my mom “could always get boned out by a black person, a vote to bang her. Other than a vote to run office, the only thing she can do … she’s not a bad person because she likes black people at least in her.”
“This isn’t a 'Poor Palin Pity Party,' I’m trying to point out a very real issue — as a society, we cannot have double standards on sexual issues," wrote Bristol. "We won’t fix it until victims of all political stripes are treated with respect and dignity!”
