The Media Gets Suckered Again By Sarah Palin Exploitation Of Her Special Needs Son

After Bill Maher reportedly used the R-word in a joke about her son Trig, Sarah Palin went into full exploitation mode and threatening violence against the comedian.

Ron Futrell is a conservative who was at Bill Maher’s Las Vegas show last weekend. He reported that Maher made an R-word joke about Trig Palin, “Maher chose to make a joke about Palin’s son, Trig and in the process he used the “R” word to describe this 5 year old special needs boy. Of course, since Trig is Palin’s son, he is a target of the left. Special needs be damned, there are jokes to be made by “caring compassionate” liberals. I was so disgusted and a bit surprised that I forgot the exact joke. Perhaps he saves this joke for live audiences only. The audience of more supposed compassionate, caring leftists loved the joke and roared with laughter.”

First of all, Trig Palin is not a target of the left. That is more Sarah Palin self-victimization mythology. Futrell hurts his credibility by making such a ridiculous claim. The left has generally treated Trig Palin better than his own mother has.

Except for the people in the room, nobody has heard this joke. There’s no YouTube video. There is no evidence to judge for ourselves. This didn’t stop Sarah Palin from doing the two things she does best, exploiting her special needs son, and threatening violence.

Palin tweeted:


First of all, Palin would never show up to a meeting. She has been dodging Maher for years. Secondly, let’s look at the sources, a conservative blogger, Breitbart, and Sarah Palin. If Maher really did make this joke, it is more insensitive stupidity from a comedian who has a history of saying insensitive, stupid, and sometimes sexist things. (Maher also has a history of blunt honesty. The downside comes with the upside, but it is all consistent. Maher doesn’t pull his punches.)

It wouldn’t surprise me if Maher did make this joke, but the way Sarah Palin handled it reeks of exploitation. Sarah Palin has a history of hypocrisy on the R-word. She looks the other way when a Republican uses the word. In 2012, when Allegheny County, PA chairman Jim Roddey made national headlines by using the R-word, Sarah Palin was nowhere to be found. While still governor of Alaska, Palin turned down $170 million in funding for special needs kids.

Sarah Palin has been exploiting her children for years with absurd claims that the left is out to get them. Her most absurd claim was that celebrities were trying to kill her children.

Palin has been using the disabled as props since she hit the national scene. It is a major part of her gimmick. What the media never picks up on is that Palin’s attitude towards the disabled has been insulting and demeaning. Part of Palin’s stock and trade is to paint the disabled as defenseless. I have often felt that Trig Palin’s biggest disability was that he has such a shallow and backwards thinking woman for a mother. Instead of empowering her child, Sarah Palin uses every opportunity to reinforce the idea that he is weak and dependent. Sarah Palin is a parasite who reinforces every negative perception of disability.

Instead of childishly threatening violence Sarah Palin had a chance to educate people, but she has never been interested in education and advocacy.

Palin is too selfish for any of that. She would rather continue to exploit her son, and troll for another drop of fame.

Once again, the media doesn’t wait for evidence before they push another dubious right wing story. The only reason Sarah Palin is famous is because the media keeps buying her hypocritical Mama Grizzly bulls**t.
