Liberal blog mocks ‘retarded’ 3-year-old Trig Palin, suggests product of incest

April 20, 2011 (LifeSiteNews.com) - A widely read liberal blog took a poem celebrating the third birthday of former Alaska governor Sarah Palin’s son Trig as an opportunity to mock the child with Down syndrome and suggest he was a product of incest.

Jack Stuef of the popular Wonkette blog marked Trig’s April 18 birthday with a mocking photo montage and derisive reflections on the birth of “the great gentleman scholar Trig Palin.”

“Is Palin his true mother? Or was Bristol? (And why is it that nobody questions who the father is? Because, either way, Todd definitely did it.) It doesn’t matter,” wrote Stuef, referring to rumors that Trig is actually the son of Mrs. Palin’s daughter Bristol.

Stuef re-posted a poem published by a member of Team Sarah on the coalition’s website that begins, “Oh, little boy what are you dreaming about.” “What’s he dreaming about? Nothing. He’s retarded,” retorted the Wonkette blogger.

Addressing Trig, Stuef sarcastically expressed hope that the boy would eventually die in combat. “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,” he wrote.

Bioethics commentator Wesley Smith took the Wonkette post as further proof that the “seething hatred of Sarah Palin” among liberals comes from her acceptance of a child with special needs.

“Have you noticed the undercurrent of bigoted eugenics and anti disability loathing among certain elements of the Left? I sure have,” wrote Smith on his blog Wednesday.
