Sarah Palin Upset Over ‘Hypocrite Pervert Liberal’ Coverage of Duggars, Calls Lena Dunham a Pedophile
Former Alaska Governor and Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin took to Facebook this week to slam “pervert” liberals as “disgusting hypocrites” over the recent news coverage of the Duggar molestation scandal.
A day after the Duggars spoke to Fox News, Palin wrote on her Facebook page, “Radical liberals in media who have total control over public narratives are disgusting hypocrites.”
“So says my daughter,” Palin said, referring to a pro-Duggar column Bristol wrote earlier in the week. “I’m glad someone’s got the guts to call out these perverts… The intolerant left’s destructive personal intrusions and narrow-mindedness applied to their chosen targets are bad enough, but their double standards are beyond the pale.”
Insisting that she isn’t defending “the Duggar boy’s obvious wrongdoing over a decade ago,” she went on to say that the “main victim in any story like this isn’t the perpetrator, it’s the innocent ones so harmfully affected.”
“I’m not an apologist for any sexual predator, but I’m sickened that the media gives their chosen ones a pass for any behavior as long as they share their leftwing politics,” Palin continued. “Case in point, they suggest Lena Dunham’s sexual assault on her sibling is cute, and she’s rewarded for it with fame and fortune. Meanwhile, they crucify another, along with an entire family.”
“Such obvious double standards applied to equally relevant stories underestimate the wisdom of the public, discredit the press, and spit on the graves of every American who fought and died for the press’s freedom,” Palin added. “Rise above by never claiming ‘victim’, tell the truth, and keep the faith! Welcome to my world; believe me – what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger!”
