Update #2: Josh Marshall at Talking Points Memo agrees and gives his take on Bristol Palin’s faux victimized status.
Original Story is below:
As you all know, audio of the Palin brawl was recently released.
Now, Bristol Palin is now posting on her blog, whining about how the mean ol’ meanie liberal media is picking on her. I got three words for ya babe: Poor freaking’ Baby!
Okay, here is the deal and this is why I do not buy this silly idea that the Palins are being picked on by the liberal media. Now, keep in mind, the Palin family is an a-typical evangelical Christian family. I happen to be a KJV-Preferred, Independent, Fundamentalist Baptist Christian; I say this so you can get the idea, of where I am coming from here.
The biggest reason is this: The Palin family is supposed to be a Christian family, right? If this is case, why did the following things happen:
- The Swearing: I thought that Christians did not swear like that? Does not the Bible say?: “Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers.
(Ephesians 4:29 KJV)”
- The Drinking: I thought that Christians were supposed to be separated from this world? Does not the Bible say?: “Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness? And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel? And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you, And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty. (2 Corinthians 6:14-18 KJV)”
- The fighting: I thought Christians were supposed to be peaceful people? Does not the Bible say?: “Recompense to no man evil for evil. Provide things honest in the sight of all men. If it be possible, as much as lieth in you, live peaceably with all men. Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord. Therefore if thine enemy hunger, feed him; if he thirst, give him drink: for in so doing thou shalt heap coals of fire on his head. Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good. – (Romans 12:17-21 KJV)
For the life of me; I just could not envision the Duggar family acting like that at all. I really cannot. So, I think Bristol needs to get off the victimhood prattle; because thinking Conservative Christians, like myself, are simply not buying it. As far as what the media did to her; she is a public figure, she is supposed to be a inspiration to young girls everywhere; and she is going out and getting liquored up and getting into fights? Something is wrong, very wrong with that picture.
I believe this little incident is a reflection of what is happening spiritually with that family. Because the Bible says plainly, that Jesus said this:
O generation of vipers, how can ye, being evil, speak good things? for out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh. A good man out of the good treasure of the heart bringeth forth good things: and an evil man out of the evil treasure bringeth forth evil things. But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment. For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned. (Matthew 12:34-37 KJV)

Update: In my previous posting about this story, Bristol Palin made some pretty far out claims about the fight. Turns out, some of those claims, might just be bogus. Check out this sound clip of Korey Klingenmeyer giving his side of the story to police: (H/T Gawker.com)
Looks to me like Bristol is not as innocent as she wants people to believe.
