Pro Abortion Site Calls Trig Palin ‘Retarded’ – Right Wing Fights Back and Makes Them PAY!

Update: Wonkette has pulled the post.

A post on this page satirizing Sarah Palin using her baby as a political prop was very badly done and sounded like the author was mocking the child and not just Sarah Palin/Sarah Palin’s followers.

The writer, Jack Stuef, has apologized for it. And we have decided to remove the post as requested by some people who have nothing to do with Sarah Palin, but who do have an interest in the cause of special needs children. We apologize for the poor comedic judgment.

The left wing site Wonkette has taken Palin bashing to new lows. It is always amazing to listen to the left demand that the right “reel in the rhetoric” all the while going further and further off the deep end.

Consider this clip from the site:

This morning, Team Sarah posted a happy-birthday message at the exact time of his birth. This is a poem “Lynda” wrote for Trig:

Sweet Angel Boy…

Oh, little boy what are you dreaming about
Candy canes and mom’s sweet hugs

Oh, sweet baby boy what are you dreaming about
Play cars…trains…planes and a daddy’s strong hands as he lifts you high and makes you laugh…oh, how safe you feel in those hands

Oh, little boy what are dreaming about
Sisters who play with you…and teach you new words

Oh, as you sleep little boy what are you dreaming about
A big bother that carries you on his shoulders…as he shows you the blue sky

Oh, little boy what are you dreaming about
A mother’s soft lullaby…the soft touch of her hand…the soft sound of her voice as she says “I Love You”
Dream on little boy as the Angels stand guard

What’s he dreaming about? Nothing. He’s retarded.

His mom went to a lot of trouble to leak amniotic fluid over 8 states to make sure that he arrived in this world somewhat alive,

Enjoy yourself today, Trig. Have fun! Get drunk (on purpose this time)! We can hardly wait for 15 years from now, when you will finally be able to vote and will be sent off by your mother’s junta to fight the Union in the Great Alaska War. It’ll be quite a loss. You’re the smartest one in that family.

Despicable. And it does not stop there.

While it would be appreciated if you avoided visiting the site, the less traffic the better, if you simply must, this is the link.

Now for the good news!

After becoming aware of this atrocious post, a number of right wing bloggers and activists began contacting the businesses advertising on the Wonkette. To their credit, a number of them have pulled their ads.

Among the first was Papa John’s Pizza. You can thank them by ordering a pizza today. And their response tweet is here.

One advertiser bites the dust. Do we hear more?


Huggies was next! I would say go buy some diapers, but that would be kinda weird if you don’t have young kids. Here is their tweet.

And that is not all. Vanguard Financial has pulled their ads. Here is the tweet.

Coldwater Creek, Bob Evans Farms, Holland American Cruise Line, Reliant Energy and Nordstrom.

Who is left? Will more follow?

Update from Life News:

JJIll:  “All: Please know we do not condone the Wonkette story. Thank you for bringing it to our attention. We have taken action to remove our ads.”
Holland America Cruises: “Thanks for letting us known, we have blocked that page from running our ads.”
Nordstrom: “Thanks for letting us know. The ads have been removed. We’re sorry to disappoint you.”
Reliant Energy: “Thank you for alerting us. We did not choose this site and are working to have this removed immediately.”
Bob Evans: “Our ad is not supposed to be running on that site. Agency has been alerted to pull it immediately.”
DealSwarm: “We’ve pulled our ads from the site — we wouldn’t have approved them running next to that blog post. (Trig is a cutie pie.) Thank you for alerting us — we weren’t aware our ads were running alongside a blog post like that. Ads have been pulled.”

Here is the latest list of the remaining advertisers (so far).

Hyatt, HP, Celebrity X Cruises, Fed Ex, Reliant Energy, Jack in the Box, AT&T, Constant Contact, Starkist, Betty Crocker, Gymboree, Dunkin Donuts, QVC, Coca Cola, Ann Taylor, JJill, Adobe, Toyota, Coldwell Banker, Dodge, Ford, Avis, Choice Hotels, Dish Network, LifeLock, FinishLine, and Texas Education Agency.

(Thanks to Free Republic for the list!)

If you’re on Twitter, here is an fantastic quick reference Twitter List of Wonkette Advertisers List so you can tweet to them directly too. (ht @_starstar Ellen for putting this together! :))

(Note – there are more added to this list than mentioned here.)

What is truly amazing is the power of Twitter as used in this effort. Phone calls and emails still work, but Twitter is becoming an increasingly useful tool.

And while Wonkette is free to post as much hate filled garbage as they so desire, we are also free to cut them off at the pocketbook.

Here is a list of others posting on this.

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
