It was bound to happen sooner or later. Almost everyone knew that one of the Palin clan would come out in support of Phil Robertson. The bearded leader of the Duck Dynasty family recently came under heavy fire when he was interviewed for GQ magazine.
Robertson shared some very frank views about what he considers to be sinful behavior in today's modern world. While his condemnation of homosexuality lifestyles were unsettling and upsetting to some readers these same views are quite popular among conservatives, Republicans, right-wing voters and others who have grown up primarily in a rural southern environment.
Bristol Palin has now firmly established the fact that she is standing behind the Robertson patriarch. She wants people to know that she supports Phil Robertson's right to freedom of speech. Bristol also states that the LGBT community should not be hypocritical and intolerant of views that are different from their own.
When you remember that Palin is a member of a staunch Republican family it makes perfect sense that this young woman would "weigh in" on this controversial topic. The Palin's and the Robertson's all share conservative, Christian values and the views that Phil Robertson expressed are probably the very same that Bristol Palin was taught to embrace during her formative years. The Palins are no strangers to journalistic disdain and public criticism. Whether the Duck Dynasty crew appreciates the public support of a member of the Palin family is anyone's guess. The Duck Commander is more than able to fight his own battles without calling for any outside help.
