Eddie Burke: Critics and Family Guy think Palins are Hillbillies

By Adrienne Ross - www.motivationtruth.com

Eddie Burke is the man. He calls it like he sees it. He's not worrying about who will stroke him for what he has to say or fretting the vitriol that liberals will throw his way. He stands up for what he believes.

In case you don't know, Eddie hosts the #1 radio talk show in Alaska, heard on www.kbyr.com, where he discusses all things Alaska and all things conservative. He is also a friend of the Palins and does a good job standing by them and calling out the haters.

I had the honor of meeting Eddie first in Alaska this past summer, and he's been a friend ever since. He's had me on his show many times, the most recent being last week to discuss the tasteless "Family Guy" episode, which showed disrespect to Trig Palin and the Palin family.

Eddie wrote an op-ed this week for Red County about that same "Family Guy" show. Did I say he's the man? He's the man! He rendered what can easily be termed both a smackdown and an analysis of what's behind Palin Derangement Syndrome, as evidenced by the television "joke" and other heartless attacks.

Eddie wrote:

Making fun of Sarah Palin's last born child, Trig, is repulsive! Let's think about it. If you had a Down-Syndrome Child, and you were attending a public sporting event, would anyone in his or her right mind publicly make fun of your child? No way! Then why would a national TV show make fun of this child?

Would they yell out jokes about your oldest teenage daughter? No! Would the broadcaster ask if your daughter wanted to have sex with one of the players? No! Has a Vice-Presidential Candidate's children ever been made fun of and mocked like Sarah Palins have? The answer remains the same: No!

Is it right that a scumbag radio Host, Dan Fagan, in Anchorage would say that Track Palin graduating from Army boot camp is "No big deal?” I don't know about you, but every person raising his or her hand in a time of war IS a big deal to me.

If you mildly agree with what I've written, then, you must be asking yourself, what in the world is going on here? Why are Sarah Palin's children treated differently?

What a good question. If you've asked yourself this question before, good for you. If you never have, ask yourself why not? Now answer honestly.

Eddie does ask the question--and he answers it. It's a sad conclusion he comes to, but I believe he speaks the truth, which is actually what makes it so sad.

Here is the answer: Sarah and Todd Palin are nothing more than a bunch of Hillbillies from Alaska with a Down-Syndrome child. Yes, I know-your drink just went down the wrong pipe. Secondly, if you're supportive of Sarah's policies then you are a dumb hillbilly too. This is what the "left" and most in the media think about the Palins AND us.

You see, people make fun of individuals because they think they deserve it, or some make fun of those who are weak and cannot defend themselves. Also, people are often made fun of because it's the "cool" thing to do. But when has it ever been popular to make fun of a mother's Down-Syndrome child? Never!


As a small radio "host" I look for material to air and think about how I might address a certain subject. Sometimes I might consult with my producer and get his thoughts too. But my show is unscripted and spontaneous, which leaves me open to say the wrong thing or wish I had said something differently.

Family Guy is a large production with many staff members; it's big time! You may be wondering what point I'm trying to make. They discussed the skit. There is a script. There was opportunity to change their mind. Many people were engaged about the material and how it would be said. It was premeditated. After all that, they still decided it was okay to run down a mother's baby who will never understand or be able to defend what they said about Trig. They just did not care. Getting the laugh justified the means.

Why would they do this? Why is this child a target? Why does this continue? The liberal blogs out there say it's because Sarah has brought "Trig out on stage." She has "exploited Trig." "Sarah has used Trig as a "political prop." Are you kidding me? Because a mother is proud of her child and refuses to hide him, they say she's using him?

Lets flip the coin and say Sarah never was public with Trig? Then, the "left" would say Sarah is hiding Trig, and she must be ashamed of him.

Eddie hit the nail on the head. Regarding Governor Palin, it's a no-win situation with some people--and if you've been anywhere on this planet in the last two years, you know that's true. If the haters weren't saying she's exploiting Trig, they'd be saying she's hiding him. She's doing neither. She's his mom. He's her son. She's simply loving him--just like you love those closest to you.

So, Eddie, what does this come down to?

I was hoping to close this op-ed with some profound answer or a solution to this disgusting situation, but unfortunately there is not much to be said about liberals' behavior and their hypocrisy. Here is one thought that I think is true: The left cannot stand that Sarah is Pro-Life. They are mad that she did not abort Trig; furthermore, they are mad that Sarah and Todd are so proud of Trig and that God chose them to share this child with the world.

Liberals and many in the media cannot stand the fact that millions of us all across this country find a connection with Todd and Sarah Palin. These socialists think the Palins are stupid, ignorant people from some swamp behind a beer brewery. There is a huge hypocrisy and double standard when it comes to the Palins as Fox News Anchor, Greta Van Susteren recently wrote about here.

Keep up the fight, my friends! Never quit and always push back. The enemy appears to be strong, but they are weak at the core. As Sarah Palin has said, "This battle is more important than me." It is about a deep set of differences between what our Founders have written and what these progressives want America to become. Americans have always fought and died for freedom for others, but there will be a time when we must fight for our own freedom! Are you ready?

Ready, Eddie!

Congressional Democrats Living In Fear Of Sarah Palin

Looking at the prospect of losing both the House and the Senate this year and the White House in 2012, democrats are desperate. The American people have soundly rejected the entire Marxist agenda that Obama and his radical Congress has tried to foist upon them.

Knowing they have almost zero chance of remaining a viable political party after this Obama, Pelosi, and Reid fiasco, congressional democrats are bringing out their bete noire to try and motivate their rapidly shrinking base of supporters.

From the DCCC website:

Recently Sarah Palin declared that she will be getting involved in Republican primaries like she did in her losing effort in last fall’s special election in Upstate New York. At the tea party convention, Palin stated, "Contested primaries aren't civil war; they're democracy at work and that's beautiful." [Sarah Palin, 2/6/10].

To make her job easy, the DCCC is launching "Palin's Primaries" a new site that will track the most divisive and messy House Republican primaries in the country.

Palin will have plenty to choose from: There are at least 55 competitive Republican primaries, many with Tea Party candidates, in Frontline races, open seats, targeted Republican districts, and other races House Republicans are trying to hype. The DCCC will regularly feature the messiest House Republican primary races out there.

Man, they got a nifty little map and all! Hilarious.

Obviously the democrats desperately hope the Tea Party movement will somehow field their own candidates, thus splitting the Conservative vote. I guess they haven’t been listening when Sarah has said third party is not the way to go, and that Tea Partiers need to "pick a party" and work from within to change. In most, if not all cases, that messages resonates with Tea Party members. They understand just how important the up coming elections are. They also understand that it’s easier to take a party over than to start a new one.

It worked for the Marxists in the democrat party!

I am forever tickled by democrats. They run around telling people that strong leaders like Sarah Palin are "inconsequential" or my favorite "dumb." They claim to be our intellectual superiors, knowing "what’s best for us." The funniest thing about our "intellectual betters" is how truly ignorant they are.

As always, democrats tell you who they live in abject fear of. There are no "stop Olympia Snowe before we all die" campaigns out there!

Say what they will, this private citizen, this mother of five from Wasilla, Alaska, has these people scared for their political lives. Frankly, they should be. Time and time again Sarah has proven she has the power to take these people on, and defeat them from her Facebook page! One can only imagine the destroyed democrat political careers that will dot the landscape once Sarah actually hit’s the campaign trail!

Next time you hear a democrat tell you just how "inconsequential" Sarah Palin is, remember what they are really saying is Sarah Palin is a strong and proven leader who scares the bejeezus out of them.

Bristol Palin To Make Her Acting Debut On ABC Family TV

Bristol Palin is about to make her debut on the small screen on ABC Family Television’s The Secret Life of the American Teenager. ABC announced Tuesday Bristol will play herself on the ABC Family show.

According to the network, Bristol will play a friend of the show's main character, Amy. The show has recently focused on how Amy reacts to an unexpected pregnancy.

"I am thrilled to be on this show and to be part of a program that educates teens and young adults about the consequences of teen pregnancy," Bristol said in a statement provided by ABC.

"We're thrilled to have [Bristol] join us, and I think she will bring additional attention to the issues facing teen parents that we've been exploring for a couple seasons now," Brenda Hampton, the show's executive producer, said in a statement.

This is a great move on Bristol’s part. She announced last year that she would focus on trying to help young women understand the consequences of making bad decisions. If there was ever a shining example of a bad decision it’s this guy:

Bristol is showing great maturity by using her status as Sarah Palin’s daughter to do something for women and children by taking a tough chapter in her life and turning it into a positive, teaching moment. Bristol deserves our support for doing this.

Kudos to ABC Family, as well, for taking this tough subject head on.

According to the network, the episode will air this summer.

Hard Hitting and Right On!!! A Post by Conservative Girl with a Voice

I want to take a moment to thank #1 Alaska Talk Radio Host Eddie Burke for having me on his show yesterday. Eddie is a great host who is not afraid to tell it like it is, which is so refreshing in the this age of Obama. For those of you who missed my conversation with Eddie, we discussed the future of the tea party. I also had the opportunity to call out the Anchorage Daily News for its misreporting. The ADN incorrectly reported that Sarah was not in attendance at the start of the Iron Dog, which was clearly not the case. Directly after I got off the air with Eddie, I noticed that the ADN had corrected its error. It's a bout time a news source retracts bogus information. While this may seem like a trivial piece of information, it is yet another example of just how out of touch the msm is with the people.

I wanted to take the time today to let you all know that Eddie recently wrote an op-ed for Red County in which he discusses the Family Guy controversy. (Click here to visit the op-ed Eddie recently wrote for Conservative Girl with a Voice.) Unlike many individuals, Eddie personally knows Todd and Sarah Palin and their family. I have included some of his article below. Make sure to click the link to read the rest of his hard-hitting and much-needed opinion in this matter. Eddie is a great advocate for Sarah, Alaskans and the rest of America too:
