Bristol Palin comes to the defense of Duck Dynasty patriarch

Bristol Palin is joining the many US conservatives coming to the defense of Phil Robertson, the patriarch of the A&E reality show Duck Dynasty.

The daughter of Sarah Palin, the former Republican vice presidential candidate and governor of Alaska, went to her blog to say ‘everyone needs to leave Phil Robertson alone for expressing his beliefs.’

‘I think it’s so hypocritical how the LGBT community expects every single flipping person to agree with their life style,’ the former Dancing with the Stars contestant wrote.

‘This flies in the face of what makes America great – people can have their own beliefs and own opinions and their own ways of life,’ she added.

Robertson has been the eye of a media firestorm since a GQ interview where he compared gay sexuality to bestiality and also grouped ‘the homosexual offenders’ with prostitutes, swindlers, drunks and others who ‘won’t inherit the kingdom of God.

In her blog post, Palin also offered advice to the LGBTI community.

‘I hate how the LGBT community says it’s all about “love” and “equality.” However, if you don’t agree with their lifestyle, they spread the most hate,’ Palin noted.

‘It is so hypocritical it makes my stomach turn. They need to learn how to respect others’ opinions and not just jump to the conclusion that everyone who doesn’t support homosexuality and gay marriage is homophobic,’ she continued.

To back up her points, Palin linked to ‘homosexual writer’

‘Of course, I don’t agree with everything he [ writes, but I do think we should elevate the conversation, stand for free speech, and let people hold beliefs that you might make you uncomfortable,’ Palin  wrote.
