Sarah Palin Versus PETA: Who Is Right?


Late last week, former governor of Alaska and Republican vice-presidential pick in 2008 Sarah Palin posted a few pictures of her son Trig to her Facebook page and horrified the animal rights group People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA).

Namely, Palin published a picture of her 6-year-old child, who has Down’s syndrome, stepping on their black Labrador Jill in order to help with the dishes.

‘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.’

PETA president Ingrid Newkirk immediately blasted Palin for supporting her son’s idea to step on the family dog.

“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.”

Sarah fiercely defended her child, pointing out that PETA has double standards. She told the group to chill because at least her son didn’t eat the dog, unlike President Barack Obama, who revealed that he enjoyed eating dog meat as a child in Indonesia.

She also said that no one attacked comedian Ellen DeGeneres when she posted a picture of a girl using a dog to reach a bathroom sink last year. DeGeneres was Peta’s Woman of the Year in 2009.

“Hey, by the way, remember your ‘Woman of the Year’, Ellen DeGeneres? Did you get all wee-wee’d up when she posted this sweet picture? Hypocritical, much?”

Palin concluded by saying that she respects all God’s creatures.

“Our pets are loved, spoiled and cared for more than some people care for their fellow man whose politics may not mesh with nonsensical liberally failed ways or don’t fit your flighty standards. Jill is a precious part of our world. So is Trig.
