Video: Sarah Palin Outraged Over "Family Guy" Down Syndrome Episode
"Sarah Palin is criticizing Fox`s Family Guy for mocking her son Trig`s Down syndrome, saying on her Facebook page it feels like a `kick in the gut.` Daughter Bristol weighs in on the page, calling the show`s writers `heartless jerks.`
The episode features the character Chris falling for a girl with Down syndrome. On a date, he asks what her parents do. She replies: `My dad`s an accountant, and my mom is the former governor of Alaska.`" Read More
Sarah Palin probably searches the word "retard" on Google News every day to see if any prominent liberal has used it. If a conservative like Rush Limbaugh utters the politically incorrect word it`s OK, but if a liberal like Rahm Emanuel says it, she protests in faux outrage.
The Family Guy is a goofy and irreverent show, and only a retard would take offense at the show`s over-the-top sense of humor.
Sarah Palin is in the big leagues (God help us), and she`d better get used to criticism and ridicule. If Palin doesn`t want Trig to be the butt of jokes, she should stop using him as a political prop.
If I were a famous columnist she`d be on me for using the word retard. Paliln`s act of faux outrage is getting very tiresome, she should stop exploiting Trig`s Down syndrome.
Special needs children deserve our love, respect, and admiration for persevering in spite of their disabilities. If Palin wants to help children with Down syndrome she should use her fame and wealth to advocate on their behalf, instead of exploiting them for political expedience.
It`s not the writers of "Family Guy" who deserve condemnation, it`s Sarah Palin. Shame on Palin!
In this video clip Palin doesn` even say the word "retard", she keeps saying the "R" word. Usually we see this kind of politically-correct nonsense only from liberals,God what a retard!
