Liberals who threatened Bristol Palin's life are cowards

As America prepares to spend time with family and friends over the four-day Thanksgiving holiday, it is more than tragic than during this week leading up to the holiday, there are millions of Americans who are whining and alarmed over the growing Dancing With The Stars' success of Bristol Palin, daughter of Sarah Palin. Instead of thanksgiving there are those who are harboring terror and threats in their hearts against Bristol.

With each passing week this good natured and extremely hardworking young woman danced her way into the hearts of Americans, in spite of liberal alarmists who blamed the Tea Party for "fixing" the results, which the ABC network has already put those buffoonish claims to rest. She endured and principled Americans, who have always favored the underdog, came to view her improvement and tenacity to stick with it as a badge of accomplishment.

Instead, the howls of protests and acts of discontent such as the an envelope containing white powder (which turned out to be talcum powder) was found at the "DWTS" studio addressed to her.

And earlier this month, a 66-year-old man in Wisconsin who appeared to be so enraged with Bristol's success that he fired a shotgun at his television have emboldened other equally unbalanced malcontents to send death threats to her. You dance challenged Liberals, two words: Grow Up!

After all, this is America. There are many of us who believe that maybe, just maybe, a young woman who was counted out, who was mocked and who was cast aside before she had even danced one step could perhaps make it to the finals, because she had the raw audacity to try to get better, week after week.

But the cowards would rather embrace a socialist approach. Bristol's individuality is not admired but held with contempt. Catcalls and anger is given birth, and seeded by collective and yes shameful and unprincipled cold hearted talk that turns to cowardly acts. These cowards...yes cowards with a capital C decided it is fair play to threaten the life a 20-year-old Bristol, who is a mother, a daughter, a sister and equally important: a human being that God created in his image. She is not a terrorist or criminal, so where is the crime?

As Americans, all of us should call those compassionless excuses for human beings into question and ask that God's spirit to be with them this Thanksgiving holiday to teach them how to love and not hate, to have pride in her effort and not disdain in her accomplishment, and lastly, show respect and not rejection because after all it is only a dance show.

So cowards, grow up and maybe give maturity a chance and give thanks that all the other cowards who hide in shadows and cloak themselves in anonymity have not come out from those shadows to threaten your daughter or loved one with death threats because you might have done something they did not agree with.

This Thanksgiving open up your heart and eyes to God's light so that you can see beyond the darkness and appreciate effort not political contempt for, "Your eye is the lamp of your body. When your eyes are good, your whole body also is full of light. But when they are bad, your body also is full of darkness. See to it, then, that the light within you is not darkness." Luke 11: 34–35.

Give true thanks and you may just surprise yourself on Thanksgiving.
