Sarah Palin Breaks Silence on Family Brawl, Picks Fight With CNN

First, Bristol Palin spoke out about the brawl that has made the Palin clan the butt of jokes recently. Now, mama Sarah has broken her silence on ruckus backyard row.

Taking to Facebook, Sarah made it clear while others were laughing at her family, especially CNN”s Carol Costello, she did not find the fight the least bit funny.

“What happened on the night in question wasn’t funny. It was humiliating and frightening,” Palin wrote. “The broken ribs, black eyes, and messed up elbows and knees suffered by people in our party that night were no laughing matter. Neither were Bristol’s bruises on her arms and leg from being dragged by a man. My kids aren’t proud of what happened, nor are they seeking sympathy by playing the victim card – that’s why they haven’t commented on this for all these weeks.”

She also blamed the leftist media for making light of Bristol’s teary, expletive laced report to police, saying no one should laugh at a woman who gets hurt, even one who gets out of a limo to confront an ‘old woman’ because she pushed her sister.

“I’d like to say shame on the media and those on the left laughing at her or at any young woman in a similar situation, but I no longer think they have any shame,” Sarah continued.

Then, a while later, she posted again, this time making it clear CNN and Costello (who has since apologized for her Bristol comments), went too far and may be ruining America by poking fun at the drunken brawl.

“This example [of what happened with Bristol] makes me physically sick because they spit in the face of every American who has fought for freedom and sacrificed to protect everyone’s First Amendment rights,” Sarah said, not really explaining how the the First Amendment was violated in this case. “It’s not because this issue involves my daughter; it’s because Carol Costella, her ilk, and her boss are disgustingly dismissive and disrespectful of the sacrifices made that allow them a platform from which to broadcast their hate and stupidity.”

She then concluded that Costello and other underlings are “ruining America” and “shame on us if we continue to support their unprofessional, hypocritical, and unethical news coverage.”
