Bristol Palin: People Want Me To Die Over Gay Marriage Blog Post

 

Politico:

Bristol Palin admittedly “stirred up a hornet’s nest” with her argument against gay marriage last week, drawing hate mail and death wishes that she addresses in a new blog post.

“People claim they’re just trying to protect the right of two people to love each other – a right I don’t contest, by the way – and then spew the worst words imaginable at someone they disagree with,” Palin, the eldest daughter of former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, writes. "If the agenda is love, why do you hate so intensely?”

Near the bottom of the post, Palin displays some of the worst feedback she’s received, including death wishes against her and her family.

"You all, including your son, deserve a slow, painful and miserable death," one commenter wrote. "Your backwards thinking is so sad because the world is moving forward and you will certainly be left behind. May death be upon you.”

Palin wonders why her remarks – in which she criticized President Obama for consulting his daughters about gay marriage – prompted such nasty backlash.
