Video: Bristol Palin Tongue-Lashed from Mechanical Bull

How 21-year-old Bristol Palin shut down a bitter 47-year-old man with misplaced anger.

Editor's Note: the attached video of a live event contains offensive language. Discretion advised.

Bristol Palin received harsh treatment at the Saddle Ranch in West Hollywood, and it wasn't from the mechanical bull she was riding.

A 47-year-old man called her out during the filming of a reality TV show. She boldly answered back in front of a team of cameramen. During the confrontation, the angry man stood at a bar and hurled epithets and nasty words about both Bristol and her mother, Sarah Palin.

If this girl had any last name besides Palin, the mainstream media would be falling all over themselves to report this story. They'd want to have this lovely, compassionate and tolerant liberal man drug over the coals, and then let him serve as fertilizer for some tree-hugging vegan's organic garden.

Bristol handled herself with a lot of class in this case, I think. She was way more mature than I would be if someone hurled those epithets at me about my mother. I would have hauled off and clocked the ignorant, angry bald guy right in the jaw. 

Bristol is out doing her job to support her child. First, she chose to have a child as a teenager rather than choosing abortion. She is supporting him and making the best out of the situation that she put herself in.

Would people be happier if she hung her head in shame and went on welfare? She was thrust into public at a horrible time for anyone—unwed and pregnant—yet she is doing good under pressure and scrutiny that most would crumble beneath.

This angry, belligerent, old buffoon attacked a 21-year-old over his hate of her mother! And when questioned about why he hated her, he couldn’t even give a legit answer. He must have figured he couldn’t really take on the elder Palin herself, because he clearly recognized his intellectual limitations and tried to take up his beef with her daughter. Funny thing is, Bristol promptly put him in his place.

It absolutely does not matter what you think of Sarah Palin. If you have an issue with her take it up with her—leave her kids alone. This man’s behavior was atrocious. He doesn’t even have enough of a clue to have a reason for his anger and hate, which is so amusing because the people that are so hateful to this family are the same people that want love and tolerance for all. Just a tad bit hypocritical. Just be decent to each other no matter what you think of someone’s politics, right?

I realize my view is not popular, however the point is valid. This young woman was attacked while out doing her job. Yes, the babbling idiot has a right to what he says. But that doesn’t make how he said it right.

Here is a tip to you Palin haters: If you senselessly blather on about your hatred for Ms. Palin, at least educate yourself on one valid reason why you hate her. Do a little research, so when questioned you don’t look like Mr. Jackwagon in the video, and get completely owned by someone barely old enough to walk onto a casino floor.

In the last three years since Palin was selected as vice presidential candidate, I have actually met two people that backed up their hatred with points that carried validity to them other than more profanity. But dozens of others sound (not as bad) but very much like this ignoramus.

For a slightly different view of this complete - jerk see this; http://www.tmz.com/2011/09/23/bristol-heckler-whore-sarah-wasilla-trash-stephen-hanks-bar-hollywood-reality-show-fight/ He is clueless and is just a serial hater and is ignorant as to why he hates them, just a lame lame lame man

Is that a really classless way at giving a compliment to Bristol? Can't even, in a justified situation be decent. NICE

Like mother, like daughter. Bristol is selling herself in any form or fashion just like Sarah, to make that money. Talk about some successful capitalists- all body and no brains. See what they’re willing to do for the cash at http://dregstudiosart.blogspot.com/2011/06/ecstasy-of-sarah-palin_15.html

After receiving numerous e-mails of profanity laced insults from some more loving and tolerant liberals, I'm not convinced we need to legalize pot because some of you are nucking futs and need to relax. And the spam even from what some people might call our "esteemed" poster Bretta throwing classless spam out there. I love how the Palin's are bringing everyone's true classlessness to light.
Kerry September 24, 2011 at 06:05 PM
Your problem is with extremist but aren't you an extremist when you lump those that disagree with you into one big pile? Also, if you think these people need to relax then why do you want to take their pot away from them. Without it they will relax? I agree that attacking the daughter because of hatred for her mom is misplaced and unreasonable but she handled herself and took care of the problem. Why is this an example of left wing domination of the media? Is it really that news worthy? All press is good press when you are trying to get attention.
Rebecca Goddard September 24, 2011 at 07:25 PM
@ Kerry I must have made a typo instead of not in my post it should have said now. No I am not an extremist, I'm not lumping everyone in, but if you don't have a legitimate beef with someone and all you have is profanity laced rants rather than an educated rational discussion, yeah those people (whack jobs) are all lumped in together.
Kerry September 24, 2011 at 08:28 PM
Thanks for the response. I always enjoy your perspective. Not that I'm in agreement usually but I'm sure you represent the thoughts of a lot of readers.
Jayne September 24, 2011 at 09:16 PM
It looks like Bristol can take care of herself. I don't see why the press would want to concern themselves with anyones children. (president's or past candidates) That being said, the list of idiotic things Sarah Palin says would have grown had she talked about the "intercontinental" railroad.  It WAS however spoken of by President Obama but I don't see anyone starting an idiot list for him. Why isn't that stupid? I don't defend Sarah Palin but I don't defend the President either. Apparently the same segment of the press that highlights Palin's gaffes doesn't notice the president's. 
Bretta September 24, 2011 at 10:57 PM
Rebecca, A family member of Bristol's is my child's teacher and it is acceptable for someone in Bristol's community to rein her back to societal norms Whereas, you are only contributing to the salacious gossip and participating in the juicy side of journalism that is only concerned with judgments that will sell ads, not in actual reporting that supports your own community. In other words, what is your investment in Bristol Palin? Nothing. What is my relationship to Bristol Palin? Community. .

So proud of Bristol Palin! She is a badass! That guy couldn’t give one factual reason why he hated Sarah Palin. Typical liberal. All emotion, no brains. Critics of the Palin’s are calling Bristol a homophobe. Why, because she asked him if he was a homosexual? This incident took place at a bar in West Hollywood, chances are that he was. And she was correct. I’m sure Bristol has had quite a few run-ins with the gay community, considering she’s been living in L.A. these past couple of months. Many of whom that do not like Sarah Palin, because of her position on gay marriage. The same position President Obama holds, by the way. But many gay people don’t seem to have a problem with him. Very hypocritical. By the way, why is no one asking if this guy is a sexist? He called Sarah Palin a whore! I don’t hear much of an outcry over his comments. Double standard? Of course. Liberal logic always escapes me. Liberals and gays are always preaching tolerance. Meanwhile, Bristol got verbally attacked by a gay liberal, and yet, instead of denouncing this clown, they are praising him. Says more about their respective causes than it does about the Palin’s. Thank you for defending Bristol Palin. You're one of the (very few) voices of reason I've read on this particular incident.

bellagrazi thanks for joining the discussion.

And the "gentleman" who was the perpetrator of the verbal assault on Palin no apologizes - http://www.theblaze.com/stories/i-apologize-bristol-palins-bar-heckler-buckles-under-negative-media-coverage-plus-bristol-responds/ Thanks again Bretta for spamming with inappropriate blogs.
Bretta September 29, 2011 at 12:19 AM
The gentleman's apology in no way justifies your salacious use, Rebecca, of gossipy reality-teevee laden innuendo about a young woman in a bar who has not even reached age 21 yet. Her life is a shambles but you use it to write a column about her because you have no better way to attract a readership. You're the one who is shamed.
Julie Flores September 29, 2011 at 03:00 AM
The question is: Who cares?
Rebecca Goddard September 29, 2011 at 03:40 AM
yeah bretta, and your opinion actually means something. Keep thinking that.
Rebecca Goddard September 29, 2011 at 04:07 AM
Obviously you did enough to spend your precious time commenting.
Julie Flores September 29, 2011 at 01:27 PM
Ha, that's pretty clever RG. Keep up the good work.
