Bristol Palin is probably not in the best position to call out the hypocrisy of others, but she honestly can’t spend any time thinking about the haters and she’s gonna just keep on doing her, okay?

In a blog post published Monday, she called out RedState’s Erick Erickson for his decision to rescind Donald Trump’s invitation to a gathering of Important Republicans after Trump’s sexist comments about Megyn Kelly following the primary debate.

He said: “There are even lines blunt talkers and unprofessional politicians should not cross. Decency is one of those lines.”

Palin wrote that Erickson really has no business issuing moral judgements, as he’s got quite an impressive record of sexism when it comes to her and her family:

Want to learn some “lessons in sexual and political decency” from Erickson? Here are three:

1. Erickson’s RedState once used a demeaning fake photo (wearing a revealing shirt with Santa Claus) of my Mom for an attack article on her. Erickson refused to take it down even after he was made aware that it was photoshopped.

2. He once called Supreme Court justice David Souter “the only goat fucking child molester to ever serve on the Supreme Court.

She also included this tweet:

“Fox and Erickson need to get off their high horse on how how outraged they are NOW about sexism and decency,” she concludes.

That sentence doesn’t make any sense, but you can’t really argue with her point.
