Thank Goodness Trump Did Not Strip Prejean, After She Stripped…

 

Carrie Prejean and Gov. Sarah Palin 

Sarah Palin backs up her bff Carrie Prejean:

“‘What I find so remarkable is that these politically-motivated attacks fail to show that what Carrie and I believe is also what President Obama and Secretary Clinton believe — marriage is between a man and a woman,’ Palin said.

“The Alaska governor went on ‘applaud’ Donald Trump for not stripping Prejean of her Miss California crown after risque photos of her emerged following her answer in the pageant.

“‘I respect Carrie for standing strong and staying true to herself, and for not letting those who disagree with her deny her protection under the nation’s First Amendment Rights,’Palin said.”

  1. The two women share outward beauty and an inability to communicate in a poised articulate way.

    They’ve both been in the news non-stop since stepping onto the world stage so I can’t imagine how they can claim their free-speech rights have been violated! Are they so stupid they think those rights mean everyone must agree with them?

    Uh, Dumbass? If you express an opinion and others disagree with you, that is NOT denying you your First Amendment rights.

    BTW, since “Sarah” is such a rising star in far right circles, do you think some “revealing” photos are going to appear, a la Dr. Laura?

    Now THAT would be hilarious.

    What is hilarious, although pathetic at the same time, is that each time these Social Conservatives get a poster boy/girl for their ‘family values’, then somehow the Evil Liberals are to blame for all the racy photos or facts about their personal characters that are dug up form their pasts – ex: Carrie Prejean, Sarah Palin, Joe the Plumber.

    What happened to the mantra of personal responsiblity with these Social Conservatives?

    If there were no racy photos or other unpleasant facts to be dug up – then there would not be an issue, would there?

    Also – I heard Miss Carrie on television yesterday and she stated the photos were not topless. When the anchorwoman replied – but you were wearing no top – Miss Carrie just sat there looking dumbfounded.

    But I am not surprised at Donald Trump for his defense of Miss Carrie. He sees a controversy unfolding and he sees big dollars for his pockets because she is, after all, still Miss California.

    According to the interview yesterday morning, the California pageant officials have told Miss Carrie that they will monitoring all her speeches from now – so where is her stand on freedom of speech on that issue?

    But, they did pay for the breast implants, so I guess they are just exercising their ownership rights.

      It actually depends on the definition of top-less, if you can or can not see the nipples?
      Did her arms cover as much as the bikini top cover? As to the other photos where her nipples were shown, her explanation could be a valid one. Ask any woman who has worn a dress on a windy day if the wind has ever lifted their dress and exposed their underwear? The answer would be yes and could you then accuse them of intend-ally exposing their underwear?

      In the photos where she was wearing a small vest it was not fastened in the front as such the wind could have blown it out of the way. In any such photo shoot accidental nudity is common and any photos shot would capture that nudity.

        This was about the first photo that came out where she was turned away from the camera but she was definitely not wearing any top. And the anchorwoman did say she was not wearing a top – which is true.

        I know what you’re saying though – if nipples are not showing, then is it a legal definition of topless. But isn’t that splitting hairs to make Miss Carrie look innocent?

        But more to my observation, when the anchorwoman came up with a question that obviously was not in Miss Carrie’s scripted answers, she looked like Sarah Palin during her numerous interviews – that moose in the headlights look came across her face.

    What a coincident! In a dressing not un-leaded on the not to be named blog I wrote the following as a part of the torture thread:

    “Miss California pictures are in the news, it is not a real surprise that a young woman posed for such pictures. The bookshelves and Internet is full of such pictures. So what sets her a part other then the question and answer issue? It is she claims of being a Christian that makes it an issue outside of the question and answer issue. Because of her claim it is pointed out that such pictures are set a part from all the other pics. It is thought that it violates the principals and core values of her faith. Does it? And does being a Christian mean she is any less or more a beautiful woman and having a body that is faltering an image?
    No, but it does make it an issue for the pictures and her posing for them. It is the violation of the principals and values that makes them an issue“.

    Prejeans 1st amendment right were not violated that is a meaningless charge. But honestly she was unduly punished for her answer. She was asked directly her opinion and did give her honest opinion should we totally fault those giving their honest opinion if so where is the point in this blog?

    The only real sin was in the response to her opinion, the following day Hilton acted more like those opposing Gay marriage and that of the Conservatives. He insulted her mind, body and faith rather then addressing the issue. He shouted names and belittled her without reservations since then the band wagon went on.

    AS the fur bur of the gay marriage issue concerning her died down the assault move on to her beliefs and the pictures. Yes she has became a poster child for the anti-gay marriage cause but also one for the pro-gay marriage cause too. She was asked and agreed to appear in one PSA for the marriage defense organization.
    She was asked to be a guest on several show and did so to defend herself against the undue attacks that went beyond the level of her simple statement of her opinion. She has been put in the place of not just defending herself but the faith she holds.

    Palin… Well she does not have such excuses for herself.

    No one’s First Amendment rights were violated. There was no “state action” against either such as would violate said amendment.

    AFAIK, everyone was free to express his/her opinion. Once said opinion was expressed, others had a right, free from governmental interference, to express theirs. We may not like it, but absent an agreement to the contrary, a private organization may take such action as it desires regarding the comments of employees and representatives, including termination.

    “‘I respect Carrie for standing strong and staying true to herself, and for not letting those who disagree with her deny her protection under the nation’s First Amendment Rights,’Palin said.”

    Run, Sarah, run. I’m sure you’d get a full 26% of the vote.

    Actually, Miss Carrie did say what she her honest opinion is and for that I don’t fault her. But since then she and her handlers have tried to make this a freedom of speech issue and I don’t see it that way.

    Perez Hilton was also wrong to come out with such hatred towards Miss Carrie because he made it personal.

    But did Miss Carrie really think those photos would not surface? Such photos have always come forward in the past – so why not hers?

    And in the end, the real issue of gay marriage has been lost – again.

  9. lilacluvr

    Did anyone else hear the news about Carrie Prejean’s parents’ nasty divorce and there is now an issue of Carrie, herself, was a victim of beatings by her father and her mother slapping her ?

    This story is like an onion – multiple layers coming off one by one. I wonder how many layers are yet to come?

    Lilac,

    Sounds like someone’s look for an excuse and some pity. But who am I to judge?

    For an update on what others in the know are saying…

    Moakler: “I Just Couldn’t Stand Behind” Miss California’s “Lies”
    http://news.yahoo.com/s/eonline/20090514/en_celeb_eo/123916

    Remember Vanessa Williams and the Miss America Pageant fiasco? She posed for Playboy, but from what I heard, there wasn’t much nudity involved. She bowed out, before they could oust her, and went on to do well in the music business.

    The thing is, they know the rules when they sign up. What one person sees as nudity, another doesn’t. I thought the rules were fairly explicit, and maybe Miss California really thought there was nothing wrong with those pix of her, and maybe she was tricked into doing them. But is it her determination or those of the board for the pageant?

    • lilacluvr

      But the question was asked of Prejean if there were any nude or semi nude pictures in her past and she answered said no. And then the story goes that only 1 picture was out there and then more kept coming out. At what point do we think she is just naive?

      If I was a lingerie model, as she has stated numerous times she was, than I would have answered the question yes but I would have gone on and explained they were lingerie modeling. Then let the chips fall where they may.

      And you bring up a good point about past pageant contestants and how they were treated. Is it fair to them to let Carrie Prejean carry on like nothing ever happened?

      In all this fiasco – I wonder how the girl that actually won the Miss USA crown feels? No one is talking about her.

      Another thing that bothers me is that Miss Carrie presumed that Perez Hilton cost her the crown. As she herself stated, she will never know the answer to that but she did say there were 3 other gay judges. So, perhaps those judges also gave her lower scores? Maybe she was always going to be the runner-up?

      But with all the fighting going on, the real issue has been lost. There are now two camps deeply entrenched (just like the abortion debate, in my opinion) and it seems neither side is flinching.

    Personally, I think these beauty pageants have become a reflection of our society. We like to pretend we are pure and wear the virgin white costumes; but the only difference between some of the pageant contestants and the local strip club is a dance pole.

    Lilac,

    Yes for Miss America.

    • tosmarttobegop

      LOL I stopped watching Miss America when my face finally cleared up.

      • frigginloon

        They once had Miss Universe in Perth and the stage collapsed. Now that brought out a lot of their natural talent. Hmm and I do recall a few were seen climbing up the scaffolding….does that count as a pole?

      • frigginloon

        See it was even on Wiki LOL! “In Perth, Australia, barely a few minutes after being crowned as Miss Universe 1979, Maritza Sayalero of Venezuela heard hysterical screams around her. The back of the stage designed to hold 75 people collapsed after a surge of 200 reporters and photographers descended onstage. A section of the stage had collapsed bringing with it the candidates from Malta, the Philippines, England, Brazil and other contestants, along with many reporters and photographers down a 6-foot deep crater caused by weak stage support beams.”

  13. frigginloon

    I heard the Clinton camp are photoshopping some Hilliary topless shots as we speak?

    • tosmarttobegop

      Oh just thank you Loon! At least tell me they will photo shop Carrie Prejean’s boobs on her instead of the natural look?
