Bristol Palin Speaks Out
Bristol Palin is speaking out for the first time since that infamous Palin family brawl.
In a defiant post on her blog, she writes, "Instead of listening to all the people who weren't there...let me tell you what actually happened."
Bristol's post comes following the release this week of those police recordings from the scene of the fight. In the recordings, Bristol says, "Some guy gets in my face, pushes me down on the grass, drags me across the grass, 'You slut, you (blank), you (blank) this.'
But Bristol writes, "I'm not ever going to listen to the audio and relive those moments."
She criticizes what she says is a liberal media bias and takes particular issue with a moment on CNN when Carol Costello said in her report, "Okay, I'm just going to come right out and say it, this is possibly the best minute-and-a-half of audio we've ever come across."
Bristol asks, "How can a reporter call this the best audio she's ever come across? Literally imagine what they'd say about anyone but me."
Bristol also posted video from her father Todd's birthday. Todd's birthday gift from the family was a new pickup truck. Sarah Palin herself was looking on.
Hours later came that brawl at a Palin family friend's house in Anchorage.
In her blog Bristol writes that she was defending her younger sister, Willow when "a guy in his late thirties or early forties got in my face. He was towering over me, probably at 6 foot something and over 200 pounds. He puffed his chest out and started yelling."
In the police recordings, Bristol said, "I'm going to defend my sister. She's 20 years old. A guy comes out of nowhere and pushes me on the ground, takes me by my feet, in my dress, in my thong dress, in front of everybody, 'Come on you (blank), get the (blank) out of here. Come on you slut, get the (blank) out of here.' "
Bristol says, "I was alarmed that things had gotten so bad so fast. But it got even worse when this guy started pushing me. He had his hands on me, pushing me down. That's when I swung and hit his face."
She goes on to say, "Violence against women is never okay...even if that violence occurs against conservative women. Imagine for a second the outrage that would happen if Chelsea Clinton had gotten pushed by some guy. Had she tried to defend herself, the liberal media would've held her up as some feminist hero."
