Bristol Palin wants you to leave Phil Robertson alone. No, really. With everyone from the governor of Louisiana to comedy show hosts getting their two cents in on the Phil Robertson-A&E controversy, Sarah Palin's daughter chimed in on the situation as well in a blog post. The younger Palin lady talked about how gays are "hypocritical" with their criticism of Robertson for the comments he made in a GQ article.
Last Wednesday, some comments the Duck Dynasty family patriarch made regarding homosexuals during an interview with GQ went viral. "Start with homosexual behavior and just morph out from there. Bestiality, sleeping around with this woman and that woman and that woman and those men,” Robertson said. A&E announced the indefinite suspension of Robertson hours later after GLAAD and many others expressed their disgust with the comments.
While many folks are upset over Robertson's comments, he has quite a few supporters, including the Palin family. In a blog post Bristol Palin made on Patheos titled "Leave Phil Robertson Alone!" she takes the LGBT community and their supporters to task for their criticism of Robertson.
"Everyone needs to leave Phil Robertson alone for expressing his beliefs," Palin said. "I think it’s so hypocritical how the LGBT community expects every single flippen person to agree with their life style. This flies in the face of what makes America great – people can have their own beliefs and own opinions and their own ways of life."
Palin continues her post by saying the criticism of Robertson is hypocritical. "I hate how the LGBT community says it’s all about 'love' and 'equality.' However, if you don’t agree with their lifestyle, they spread the most hate. It is so hypocritical it makes my stomach turn. They need to learn how to respect others’ opinions and not just jump to the conclusion that everyone who doesn’t support homosexuality and gay marriage is homophobic."
Bristol's comments somewhat mirror her mom's, who claims that free speech is under attack:
