“Chill. At Least Trig Didn’t Eat The Dog.” Sarah Palin Hits Back Hard At Criticism Over A Controversial Picture Of Her Son Standing On Her Dog And Blames Obama For “Eating Dead Dog Meat”.

Sarah Palin took to Facebook to defend the controversial picture of her youngest son Trig standing on the family dog which sparked widespread anger. The image, which Mrs. Palin shared on New Year’s Day, met with heavy criticism all over social media. PETA released a statement saying:

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.

Mrs. Palin’s response to PETA, who characterized her as a “callous woman”, focused not just on defending the controversial image, but also asked why the Norfolk, Virginia-based animal rights organization has never objected to the actions of other celebrities, such as President Obama. The former Alaska governor asked:

Did you go as crazy when your heroic Man-of-Your-Lifetime, Barack Obama, revealed he actually enjoyed eating dead dog meat?

This question came after Mrs. Palin began by saying: “At least Trig didn’t eat the dog”.

Mrs. Palin’s jab at President Obama is in reference to his admission years ago that as a child living in Indonesia, he did once eat dog meat. While it is unknown how much he liked the taste, the President couldn’t resist mocking Mrs. Palin at the 2012 White House Correspondents’ Dinner, during which he said:

What’s the difference between a hockey mom and a Pit Bull? A Pit Bull is delicious.

Not satisfied with taking on only the President and PETA, in her Facebook response Mrs. Palin also asks why the animal rights organization never attacked Ellen DeGeneres for a picture which her show’s Instagram page posted in July of last year, showing a child standing on her dog to brush her teeth. That child, a little girl, does seem to be both younger and smaller than 6-year-old Trig.

The photos Mrs. Palin posted were meant to show her son’s resilience. In the note accompanying the controversial images, Mrs Palin wrote of the boy, who has Down Syndrome:

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.

And in the response to the criticism, she shared how much she and her family love all of their animals:

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.

Mrs. Palin She also used her response to attack PETA’s opposition to Alaska’s most famous annual event — the Iditarod — calling it “the Last Great Race honoring dogs who are born to run in wide open spaces”.

6. In her response, Mrs. Palin referred to this image, which was posted in July of last year on the Ellen DeGeneres show’s Instagram page, and asked “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?”.

Here is Mrs. Palin’s full response:

Dear PETA,

Chill. At least Trig didn’t eat the dog.

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? http://conservatives4palin.com/…/peta-woman-year-posts-phot… Hypocritical, much?

Did you go as crazy when your heroic Man-of-Your-Lifetime, Barack Obama, revealed he actually enjoyed eating dead dog meat?

Aren’t you the double-standard radicals always opposing Alaska’s Iditarod — the Last Great Race honoring dogs who are born to run in wide open spaces, while some of your pets “thrive” in a concrete jungle where they’re allowed outdoors to breathe and pee maybe once a day? (http://iditarod.com/ http://www.irondog.org/)

Aren’t you the same herd that opposes our commercial fishing jobs, claiming I encourage slaying and consuming wild, organic healthy protein sources called “fish”? (I do.)

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”.

Yeah, you’re real credible on this, PETA. A shame, because I’ll bet we agree on what I hope is the true meaning of your mission — respecting God’s creation and critters.

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.

Jill is a precious part of our world. So is Trig.

– Sarah Palin
