Radar Online reports today on an interview they conducted with Matthew Loewe, the father of Jordan Loewe. Jordan is the unwed mother of Track’s second child. She’s the one who had to hide under the bed for fear that Track would beat her up, even though she was pregnant at the time with his child.
Evidently Jordan’s father has had enough. He described Track this way:
“He’s hot-headed, he’s out of control and he has anger issues!” .
“He’s thrown stuff at Jordan, thrown rocks at Jordan — he’s even thrown stuff at her when she was holding their baby!”
“Track hates [his father] Todd,” “Jordan and Track had an argument one night that it got so out of control she called… and they both came over.
“He threatened to beat up his dad, saying, ‘Come on old man, you’re full of metal now.‘”
Sarah and Todd have “washed their hands” of Track. “Before Jordan got pregnant, Todd told her, ‘I’d run if I were you.” Now that the baby has been born Sarah and Todd have cut all ties with Track.
It’s hard not to remember Sarah’s words from America by Heart in her chapter giving advice on Raising Small-r Republicans. Here are some of the more memorable quotes of Sarah Palin, the woman who held herself out as the “Mama Grizzley” who considered her family her “true north.”(pg 91)
“They make all the bad stuff worth it and all the good stuff twice as good. I can’t imagine what I would do without them.”(pg 91)
“In our house, we pitch in and help each other out….it’s a family goal. If it’s important to one of us it’s important to all of us. And if it challenges one of us, it gets support from all of us.”(pg 94)
“The Palin family is no different from others. We’ve had our challenges, but we’ve tackled them head-on , together, and we’ve ended up stronger for it.”(pg 95)
“As a matter of fact, if you discount the screaming headlines and lurid magazine covers, ours has been a typical American family story.”(Pg 99)
“April 20, 1989, was the day I had my first child, Track, and I truly believe my life began that day.”(pg 101)
“Our families lay the finger of God on our foreheads….When you’re a parent…you have an investment in the world-a child-and you want to make sure that the world is a safe,welcoming, and prosperous place for her.” (pg 107)
“”After all, the damage done to the American family by widespread divorce and children without fathers …” (pg 114)
“…Labor Depa;rtment official, issued a famous report warning of the impact on African Americans from the rise of out-of-wedlock births. …”the richest inheritance any child can have is a stable, loving, disciplined family life,…” (pg 116)
“…families matter and fathers do matter.”(pg 117)
“…the rate of violent crime is much more strongly correlated with family disorganization than it is with race.”(pg 119)
“Our families embody our hopes and dreams. …Today the fight for my family’s future is the fight for all American families’ futures.”(pg 125)
It is tragic when any person turns to a life of drugs and/or alcohol. It’s tragic when any mother has to protect her child from his/her father. It’s tragic when a mother has to get a Judge involved to protect herself and her child from the violent behavior of the father. However the greatest tragedy is when the mother of this violent man pretends to be a loving and committed mother. It is tragic when Sarah Palin condemns other families that have problems, like those of her family, and pretends that they are caused by political affiliation and/race.
