Animal rights groups are leveling Sarah Palin for posting pictures on her Facebook page of her son standing on a family dog.
Here is one of the images that Palin posted of her son standing on the family dog on her Facebook page:
To make matters worse, Palin wrote on her Facebook page, “May 2015 see every stumbling block turned into a stepping stone on the path forward. Trig just reminded me. He, determined to help wash dishes with an oblivious mama not acknowledging his signs for “up!”, found me and a lazy dog blocking his way. He made his stepping stone.”
Not only did Palin admit that she was ignoring her child with special needs, but she callously tried to use Trig’s disabilities as a motivational tool while ignoring the mistreatment of an animal.
In a statement PETA responded to Palin promoting animal cruelty, “It’s odd that anyone—let alone a mother—would find it appropriate to post such a thing, with no apparent sympathy for the dog in the photo. Then again, PETA, along with everyone else, is used to the hard-hearted, seeming obliviousness of this bizarrely callous woman, who actually thought it appropriate to be filmed while turkeys were being slaughtered right behind her in full view of the camera.”
The group Friends Of Animals said, “It’s no surprise to Friends of Animals that Sarah Palin is so insensitive she thinks a Black Lab should be tolerant of a child who isn’t told to not put his full weight on top of the dog’s back by standing on him. How lazy of Sarah Palin not to move the dog out of the way and teach her child the right lessons.”
It is troubling to see that Sarah Palin’s lazy, callous, and oblivious political style extends into her parenting and pet ownership. Most children who are not being parented by Sarah Palin are taught that there is nothing funny about using pets as furniture. Most non-Palin kids are also taught that animal abuse is not funny.
The fact that Sarah Palin would post pictures of her child standing on a dog as a joke speaks volumes both about Palin and the drooling right-wing masses that are defending animal cruelty. Just because the dog can’t express its displease does not mean that it enjoyed being stood on.
Sarah Palin continues to demonstrate why she is far from Mother Of The Year material.
Thanks to John McCain, this woman was once in position to be a heartbeat away from the presidency. Sarah Palin is demonstrating that not only is she not fit to hold political office; she shouldn’t be allowed to own a dog.
