Sarah Palin wrote a letter to PETA for blasting her recent photos of her son Trig stepping on their family dog with one main message: “Chill.”
The former Governor of Alaska, who posted the open letter on her Facebook page Saturday, also criticized the group for not doing what it preaches.
“Aren’t you the same anti-beef screamers blogging hate from your comfy leather office chairs, wrapped in your fashionable leather belts above your kickin’ new leather pumps you bought because your celebrity idols (who sport fur and crocodile purses) grinned in a tabloid wearing the exact same Louboutins exiting sleek cowhide covered limo seats on their way to some liberal fundraiser shindig at some sushi bar that features poor dead smelly roe (that I used to strip from our Bristol Bay-caught fish, and in a Dillingham cannery I packed those castoff fish eggs for you while laughing with co-workers about the suckers paying absurdly high prices to party with the throw away parts of our wild seafood)? I believe you call those discarded funky eggs “caviar,” she wrote.
Palin’s angered response comes several days after she posted photos of her 6-year-old standing on the dog’s back in order to reach a counter, which Palin she referred to as the boy’s “stepping stone.” The photos of Palin’s son, who has Down syndrome, were intended to be inspirational, but instead sparked controversy. Many animal lovers felt Palin disregarded the dog’s well-being and also judged her parenting skills. The 50-year-old defended herself saying both her son and dog are in good hands.
“Our pets, including Trig’s best buddy Jill Hadassah, 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,” Palin wrote. ”Jill is a precious part of our world. So is Trig.”
