Well last night Sadie got the chance to see the responses to that post and has a little more to add. Including a smackdown for a certain troll.
Here is how she starts out:
I did not get to read all the comments on the last post and I am just beginning to read comments on this post. I will answer as many questions as I can.
Why hasn't Levi taken Bristol to court yet? There has been many times court has been mentioned/pursued and then Bristol changes her tune, plays nice, and allows Levi to see his son. While promising that they don't 'need' to go to court.
The other reason, like Anonymous10:49 AM said, MONEY. My brother is a young man trying to support his family and he doesn't have millions of dollars like the Palins do. If we did have unlimited resource's like they do, we would have had this settled four years ago.
I have read comments from this blog and other blogs/outlets coming from wonderful people who have offered to help Levi with his legal fees/fight for Tripp. However, when I proposed the idea of setting up an account for my Brother to receive help from all you generous people, and even offered to set it up for them, Sunny declined.
Sunny said "no..." and that she was "going to do it"..
It has been a very long time since that conversation and she has yet to do anything other than post pictures on his "facebook page".
I have done everything I can do to help and get my Nephew back to his other home, but there is only so much I can do...unfortunately. I wish my Brother would have allowed me to set that up for the benefit of him as a father, and most importantly, for the benefit of Tripp.
Tripp needs his father in his life and he needs us in his life as well.. but unfortunately his wife got in the way of that opportunity.
I still want to thank each and every one of you who has supported us and graciously offered to help my Brother, Tripp, and ultimately my whole family.
I don't understand why she doesn't want me to set an account up to help her husband, herself, her daughter, and Tripp...And if I ever get the chance/Sunny's permission to set an account up, I will in a heart beat.
Sadie's next response was directly to a troll. As you know I tend to ignore the trolls and encourage others to do likewise, but this is Sadie's idea so here you go.
I will post the trollish comment first.
Whatever. I want her to "weigh in" on rudfles, Truggybear, cutest baby brother ever. Sarah as mon in law. You know, all the things i believe the Johnstons have not "weighed in" on truthfully.
What was so dambing on their comouters that needed to go down the memory hole so quickly? Forgive typos- on small phone.
When others tried to explain things, this was the response:
Exactly. Her brother lied.
Must have been for good reason.
Is she going to go against Levis wishes?
She would lose half her family.
Sorry, sadie. So much more to say.
Finally Sadie had had enough.
Oh, how cute, you're going to be "anonymous" on here but you can message me and my friends randomly from a fake Facebook profile under the name of "Kia M Bridgman".
Funny, I got the same message as above from you on Facebook. You're a coward and block me and my friends immediately after you constantly message us...You can stop creating multiple fake profiles just to message my family and myself. We get enough messages from loving and supporting people to waste our time to even view your inadequate messages. I can only assume you block us immediately because you know damn well I will correct everything you say. :) You're a crazy, yet inaccurate stalker, and you seriously need to get a life. I don't read your pathetic messages, you aren't worth my time. (I only know what it said because of a friend)
And just because Tripp may have taken photos of himself before doesn't mean he likes getting his photos taken. You know nothing. Not only can we tell by his body language that he hates being photographed and recorded but he is very articulate and says it himself. He is not shy and makes it clear he does not like being on Camera.
It's very rare that he will pose for a picture..maybe he'll do it if he is in a very good mood, if it's Christmas, If he just got something exciting,..ect. But he generally just hates it. And who can blame him? His whole life he has basically been on camera. He's a normal child and doesn't want to be on camera, he want's to be a normal kid and go play.
Tripp even knows when you're trying to sneak a picture or video and he will call you out on it and ask for you to stop. And now that he is old enough and can express that, as much as I love photography and want to take pictures of him, I try my best to respect his desire of not being photographed. I want Tripp to know that his other home is a safe home (not saying Bristol's isn't, I know it is safe) and kid friendly. And he does know that, he's very comfortable here and I think that's what he loves best about being at his other house.
I know my Nephew and when he is with us he doesn't ever want to leave. He has so much fun and enjoys being with us.
I seriously wish people could grow up and this whole thing could be settled..for Tripp's best interest. It's a shame that it has to be this way..But I guess that's what you have to do if you want to continue to play the sympathy card by claiming you're a single mom with no help from anyone but your family.
I've seen real single Mothers who have gone through struggles, who work two/three jobs just to keep food on the table, pay rent, and support their child(children). They're the ones who have NO HELP, no recourse, no fathers who wants to be in their child's life. No extended family who want to be there to help in anyway they can...They're the ones who deserve a helping hand, sympathy, and our praise.
They don't have brand new custom built houses and brand new decked out vehicle's, get to travel whenever they want, and make thousands of dollar's off of reality TV by exploiting their child. Oh, and then claim they have no other help and that the father isn't around and doesn't want to be around. It's all Bullshit. (excuse my language).
I agree with this from "Anonymous11:54 AM" "You can see the anger come out of him on numerous occasions. The two idiots that are to be caring for him just laugh and think it is cute. Yeah, real cute to violate someone's core being like that and laugh at him as he tries to express the torture he feels"... (I don't agree with calling them "idiots" but I completely agree with the rest of the comment) As his Aunt, that breaks my heart.
And just to chime in, I also have received numerous e-mails, Facebook comments, and IM comments from the same person under different identities. And Sunny has as well.
Nobody is fooled by this because the writing is so clearly the same and the level of insanity is essentially impossible to miss. (Yes I am aware we know her name, but I did not want to give her the satisfaction of putting it in this post.)
This is so ridiculous and pathetic to me. Assuming you guys are adults, and educated ones at that. That makes me assume that you're smart enough to put two and two together.
You really think Sarah Palin is going to give ME of all people, one of the only people who have ever spoken up against her, Trigg's Birth Certificate? Huh?
That makes a lot of sense.
I have nothing to hide, I apologize if you think otherwise.
And "go against Levi's wishes"? I am my own person and I say whatever I want. I have never held back and I never will. If Levi doesn't like what I have to say, that's his problem. I've always told the truth and I have always stuck up for the truth. I'm not going to bow down to anyone and lie because it's what you want to hear. (I can vouch for this.)
I have already explained all of those things, do your homework. I don't mean to come off as rude or bitchy, but after explaining the same thing over and over, you'd think you guys would finally get it. I would never allow any one to "pay me off" nor would anyone in my family, that is an insult to us.
And Gryphen does believe me, you know why? Because he knows me, he's looked me dead in the eyes and asked me in every which way a person could, and I told the truth and I have never changed my story.
And Anonymous10:43 AM, you want us to "forgive typos"? Yet, if I make one, god forbid, and I have, that must mean I have been lying about something if it pertained to any of those subjects? Right? It couldn't possibly mean that I was just a teenager in highschool..right?
A teenager who happened to call Trigg my "little brother" and gave him a nick name "TiggyBears" on MY MYSPACE account, where my friends, who know me, know I nickname people, and would understand the captions because they simply know me.
How was I too know that the whole Nation was going to raid my Myspace and judge every single word on it? I'm sure each and every one of you have some things you do differently, I would love for your profiles to go nation wide and have every word criticized while being asked for explanations of everything you type while you're only a teenager.
Can you think back to what you may have written at that age?
I think there are a lot of hypocrites here, no offense.
Absolutely, I was a little naive and thought we were going to be one big happy family. Which is why I adored Trigg so much and tried to bond with Sarah and call her "MommyInLaw" (Levi and Bristol were suppose to get married at that time and if they had, I would have called her my Mother in law too). This is similar to how I call my best friend's son my "Second Nephew". He isn't really my Nephew, by blood, but I love him like my own Nephew. And I call him my Nephew and he calls me "Aunt Sadie".
Like I said I am not a fan of responding to trolls or so-called "haters,' but since Sadie is a grown up now she can decide for herself if she wants to deign something mean or ignorant with a response.
And so she has.
Be ware that if you are a complete jerk and dimply respond with insults toward Sadie or derogatory remarks, the only person who will read them is you, because I will delete them as fast as they come in.
I should also let you know that Sadie has offered to answer a few new questions, so if you can think of something that you have been wondering about, and which was NOT already addressed here or on Sadie's own blog, feel free to leave them here.
I cannot guarantee a response but we will do our best to get you a reasonable answer to a reasonable question.
