DWTS Hypocrite Bristol Palin Gets Slammed!
DWTS contestant Bristol Palin was named the worst person in the world by Keith Olbermann.
MSNBC show host Keith Olbermann does a thing on his show each week called “Worst Person in the World” and this week he named Bristol Palin as that person. He strikes out against her for many of the same reasons other people have. She is Candies’ ambassador for abstinence and an abstinence spokesperson/advocate. As Olbermann puts it: “She’s the Candies spokesperson for abstinence? She and her son? Because it’s got to work this time? This is like saying George Bush kept us safe except for that 9-11 thing, which doesn’t count.” They are pretty harsh words, but it is something many people, myself included, have wondered. The simple reality is that abstinence only education doesn’t work. If you go anywhere in the nation where they only teach abstinence you will also find the highest rates of teen pregnancy and teens with STD’s. But that doesn’t stop Bristol Palin from taking the money and telling people, essentially, that even though it didn’t work for her, it will work for them.
Sarah, I mean Bristol Palin, as you might guess, shot back. But, it is almost comical in how she did it. She responded via her Facebook page with a statement that read in part: “Accusing me of hypocrisy is by now, an old canard. What Mr. Olbermann lacks in originality he makes up for with insincere incredulity.” Seriously? This is supposed to be Bristol Palin speaking? The same girl who had trouble putting together three sentences on Dancing With the Stars? She should be quizzed on if she even knows what the words canard and incredulity mean. It sounds to me more like a statement put together by one of her mom’s staff. To her (or her ghostwriter’s credit) she does make a decent point when she later says that parents warn their kids about mistakes they made and that ex-drug addict’s help treat and counsel other drug addicts while former gang members try to keep kids out of gangs. She then later says that his words will not stop her from getting out her message of teen pregnancy prevention. She also says that one day, if Keith Olbermann ever has a daughter; he may change his mind about her (meaning change his mind about Bristol).
Would it kill her to show these girls how to use some birth control along with preaching to them about abstinence? That would go miles towards ending the hypocrisy she stands for every time she gets up and speaks about abstinence. She can tell them it is the only true way to prevent STDs and pregnancy, but that they need to protect themselves if they don’t remain abstinent. Bristol Palin and the rest of the clan have this weird thing going on where they feel like they can say or do whatever they want no matter how odd or controversial it may be and if you dare to question them you are somehow an idiot or a bad person for doing so. That annoys me.
Olbermann has not officially made a statement about Bristol Palin’s Facebook post, but when asked about it on Twitter he did reply, “ So what if she’s leading to more teenage pregnancies by pushing abstinence-only, which DOES…NOT…WORK.”
For the record, Canad is a form of false story or story that is fabricated with the intent to hurt someone. Incredulity means disbelief or doubt. So Bristol Palin’s sentence basically says, “Accusing me of hypocrisy is by now, an old malicious false story meant to do me harm. What Mr. Olbermann lacks in originality he makes up for with insincere disbelief.” Now that I look at it, really, it doesn’t make a whole lot of sense either, so I take it back, maybe Bristol Palin did write it after all.
