Hot Post: Willow Palin Helps the Left Discover Parental Responsibility

This popular post was originally published on November 18, here.

The Left is just livid over a Facebook  exchange between 16-year-old Willow Palin and a couple of guys from her area.  Willow called one of the kids “gay” and a “faggot” in response to his attack on her family. Being of delicate constitution and having refined sensibilities, the Left was horrified by teenage trash talk, especially of the “homophobic” variety.

After all, it’s not as if the Left would do the same. Why, I remember when former Pandagon writer “Ilyka” wrote a piece responding to something I wrote that claimed I was a rape-loving Christian “fag,” the noble liberals of Pandagon only left it up until someone told them I was half black. Then they removed it and the author apologized.

After all, they would never promote intolerance.

But this incident is different, because unlike the hundreds of times some white lefty called me a “nigger” or a “race traitor,” this particular episode is actually wrong. And because it involves the child of Sarah Palin, the thoughtless mouthiness of Willow Palin is a reflection on the parents. The Palins, according to the new narrative of the Left, are blameworthy for all of their children’s behavior.

“Where Did Sarah Palin’s Daughter Willow Learn To Say ‘Faggot’ On Facebook?” asked a post on gay web site Queerty. Because it’s just impossible to imagine that teenagers are influenced by anything other than their parents. Other sites followed suit and implied that the Palins taught Willow to hate gays.

But the real story here isn’t the hypocrisy and hysterics of the Left, but the fact that this new position is actually an improvement in how the Left views parental responsibility. It wasn’t that long ago that the Left thought civilized people abandoned parental responsibility as soon as their daughters got their first sex ed class.

When pro-life activists exposed Planned Parenthood’s systematic policy of covering up statutory rape, the Left not only defended Planned Parenthood but did so by attacking the idea that a parent had a right to know if their 13-year-old daughter was being dropped off at an abortion clinic by the pedophile who was sexually exploiting her.
