Kate Walsh, an actress on Private Practice, is encouraging girls and women, boys and men to boycott Bristol Palin’s panel appearance to discuss “sexual responsibility” at Washington University in St. Louis, Missouri. Hollywood publicist, Angie Meyer, believes Walsh and her oh no! not abstinence cry is targeting Bristol because of her “controversial” last name. Continuing with that theme, Walsh was a supporter of Barack Obama and his “Yes We Can” campaign. She appeared in a “Yes We Can campaign video. She also rallied the troops for Obama in Arizona, Texas, Nevada and Pennsylvania. Update: Washington University cancels Bristol Palin’s participation on the “sexual responsibility” panel. Palin will be replaced with a physician.
Walsh is a member of Planned Parenthood Federation of America. Bristol is the Teen Abstinence Ambassador for the Candie’s Foundation.
“The celeb-left won’t leave the Palin family alone. Bristol Palin is an advocate for sexual responsibility, and like any other public figure on the speaking circuit, she is paid to represent the cause,” Meyer explained. “Celebrities and reality stars are paid also paid millions to attend club openings and parties. Perhaps if Kate Walsh was more concerned with troubled celebrities getting paid to attend alcohol-sponsored parties, and less worried about celebrity youth advocates earning speaker fees, her opinions might be taken seriously.”
Walsh is catching some heat from her Tweets, according to this article from Fox Entertainment, and as that heat rolls in, she asks if her critics are “communists.” It is time we started calling people like Kate Walsh child predators. They are predatory…there is no denying it. They have their abortions, so what is behind this other than killing off the prospect of a Sarah Palin presidency? Why is abstinence so abhorrent to people like Kate Walsh – other than a decline in funds to Planned Parenthood?
Some students are unhappy that Palin might be paid to appear. Others are not happy that Bristol’s opinion may be silenced. A spokesman for the University says the school did not invite Palin, the Student Health Advisory Committee issued the invitation. Lesson: never, ever expect University officials to stand on principle, and the good of the students.
