Sarah Palin to Critics: Kiss My Okole!

by at .  Updated at .

Sarah Palin is not done trashing PETA.

The former politician found herself in hot water last week after posting a photo online of her son, Trig, standing on her family dog, Jill.

In response to criticism from animal rights groups and Twitter users, Palin fired back that PETA is a hypocritical organization because it did not come down on Barack Obama for eating dogs as a child.

Now, via a statement to NBC News, Palin tells her critics to "kiss my okole."

Okole is Hawaiian for butt.

"They're not attacking me because I showed people a special needs child and his happy, healthy, beloved service dog; they're attacking me because, well, I'm me," added the ex-Alaskan governor.

"So what's new? PETA throws raw meat in front of their attack dogs and says sic 'em, and we have a choice in how to react to these kind of haters who'll keep on hating. We either accept their attacks as stumbling blocks, or see them as stepping stones to make a point about truth."

Following the release of the picture featured in the above video, PETA said it "simply believes that people shouldn't step on dogs, and judging by the reaction that we've seen to Sarah Palin's Instagram photo, we're far from alone in that belief."

Not exactly the most harsh critique of all-time, but enough to get Palin on a roll.

"We adopted her for our youngest son from an amazing friend in Iowa who runs a foundation that raises and trains dogs for our wounded warriors," Palin said of her service animal. "These dogs can change a disabled vet's life, and that's a beautiful thing! Certainly the Puppy Jake Foundation has changed our life for the better."

Concluded the controversial star:

"I am in love with this four-legged family member! So is Trig, and it's so revealing that the Political Left knows no bounds as they attack him and now even good, selfless supporters and trainers at the Puppy Jake Foundation. I hope the foundation is overwhelmed with support from caring Americans now so that good comes from PETA's bad acts in this."

Sarah Palin Quotes

What I've had to do, though, is in the middle of the night, put down the Blackberries and pick up the breast pump. Do a couple of things different and still get it all done.

Sarah Palin

I am thankful to be married to a man who loves being a dad as much as I love being a mom so he is my strength. And practically speaking, we have a great network of help with lots of grandparents and aunties and uncles all around us. We have a lot of help.
