“Bristol Palin’s ex-fiancé, Dakota Meyer, has broken his silence after her unexpected pregnancy announcement on Thursday. In a post to his personal Facebook page, the former U.S. Marine wrote that the mass media is overshadowing news stories of terrorism and putting on a “dog and pony show.”
““Within the past 24 hours there have been three terrorist style attacks across the world,” he wrote on Friday. “There has been an incident at a U.S. company owned gas factory in Lyon, France leaving one dead and two injured. Another incident in Tunisia with 28 people lost in an assault on a west tourist, mostly British. And finally, a blast at a Shiite mosque in Kuwait.”
Speaking to Newslo on his recent Facebook post and the desire to turn the attention of the public to the burning problems with terrorism in the world, Meyer couldn’t help but mention his former fiance and her recent news.
“You know, when you find yourself in a situation like this, the first thing you ask yourself, or rather, I’ve asked myself, is how did I get here?,” Meyer said. “Everything was going well, and then all of a sudden…it wasn’t. I think I can say I’ve been through much more in my life than many others have, but it’s still strange to fail. I don’t like failure. I don’t think anyone does.”
Asked whether he considered his engagement with Bristol Palin was a failure, he responded, “I would have to say so. I was definitely in it for the long haul.” He also added: “To be honest, a little bit of me still belongs to her and it always will. Then again, when you hear news about your ex being pregnant weeks after your breakup, you kind of start to wonder.”
Commenting on the possibility that he might be the father, Meyer said: “I don’t really think so. Things haven’t really been great between us near the end. In fact, when I look back at our relationship from this perspective and with a clear head, I’m surprised we even lasted as long as we did. I still love a part of her, but I just hope she doesn’t give birth to a black baby nine months from now.”
“Palin also shared her own message on Friday, saying she was ignoring the negativity. “I know this has been, and will be, a huge disappointment to my family, to my close friends, and to many of you. But please respect [my son] Tripp’s and my privacy during this time. I do not want any lectures and I do not want any sympathy,” she wrote in her blog post.
