If Bristol Palin should asks to turn off your cell phone, it may be in your best interest to heed her request, lest you should find yourself beaten and dragged across the floor.
Alaska’s former first daughter has expressed outrage at the fact that a Richland County, South Carolina sheriff’s deputy was fired for knocking a child out of her chair, dragging her across the floor and ultimately arresting her as punishment for being disruptive in class. The deputy was called in when the girl refused to turn her phone off at her teachers request.
Rather than condemning the deputy, as have democratic candidates Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders, Palin took to her blog and expressed frustration with parents in contemporary society, saying that her illegitimate son, Trig would have unquestionably obeyed authority in in the same circumstance.
“Do parents teach their kids now to question authority?” the reality star asked in her post. “When will parents take full responsibility for their kids, teach them not to act like punks, and listen to AUTHORITY?”

The two-hundred and thirty-one word rant, in which she disregards the rules of her native language with her affinity for sentence fragments, makes no mention of Palin’s own disregard for authority. The 25-year-old who was recently impregnated with her second out of wedlock child, has made quite a career out of not following the rules.
Palin first came into the public eye in 2009 when her mother Sarah Palin, became John McCain’s official running mate. It was soon announced that the 16-year-old had ignored her mother’s request that she practice abstinence and was pregnant.
The young Ms. Palin went on to become a spokesperson for The Candie’s Clothing Foundation and often spoke on the dangers of teen motherhood. The gig paid Ms. Palin a reported $262,000.
The spoils of her unplanned pregnancy did not end there. She went on to “write” an autobiography, star in a reality show based on her motherhood entitled, Bristol Palin: Life’s A Tripp and also appeared on Dancing with the Stars.
To put Palin’s parenting advice in perspective, here’s video from 2012 of her then-3-year-old son Tripp calling his mother a “faggot”:
