Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin eviscerated the mainstream press for celebrating and rewarding pedophile Lena Dunham while trying to crucify the Duggar family after revelations that 19 Kids and Counting star Josh Duggar molested four of his sisters and another underage girl.
“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 wrote in a thunderous Thursday Facebook note.
Palin added that 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.”
“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,” she continued. “Meanwhile, they crucify another, along with an entire family.”
She linked to her daughter Bristol’s Thursday morning Patheos blog in which Bristol wrote that Dunham’s passages in her Not That Kind of Girl memoir about spreading open her one-year-old sister’s vagina and masturbating next to her when her sister got older “makes me want to puke.”
“Remember the liberal media outrage?” Bristol asked. “Oh that’s right. It didn’t happen. The liberal media darling Dunham was praised for her ‘honest and witty’ book.”
In her memoir, Dunham described when she one day decided to “carefully spread open” her sister’s vagina:
One day, as I sat in our driveway in Long Island playing with blocks and buckets, my curiosity got the best of me. Grace was sitting up, babbling and smiling, and I leaned down between her legs and carefully spread open her vagina. She didn’t resist, and when I saw what was inside I shrieked.
My mother came running. ‘Mama, Mama! Grace has something in there!’
My mother didn’t bother asking why I had opened Grace’s vagina. This was within the spectrum of things that I did. She just got on her knees and looked for herself. It quickly became apparent that Grace had stuffed six or seven pebbles in there. My mother removed them patiently while Grace cackled, thrilled that her prank had been such a success.
Dunham also revealed that she shared a bed with her sister until Dunham was seventeen years of age and admitted that sometimes she “slipped my hand into my underwear to figure some stuff out” while sleeping next to her sister.
She even described in her memoir that she did “anything a sexual predator might do to woo a small suburban girl I was trying” with her sister Grace:
As [Grace] grew, I took to bribing her for her time and affection: one dollar in quarters if I could do her makeup like a ‘motorcycle chick.’ Three pieces of candy if I could kiss her on the lips for five seconds. Whatever she wanted to watch on TV if she would just ‘relax on me.’ Basically, anything a sexual predator might do to woo a small suburban girl I was trying. Maybe, I thought, she would be more willing to accept kisses if I wore the face mask my grandmother had for when she did her dialysis. (The answer was no.) What I really wanted, beyond affection, was to feel that she needed me, that she was helpless without her big sister leading her through the world. I took a perverse pleasure in delivering bad news to her— the death of our grandfather, a fire across the street —hoping that her fear would drive her into my arms, would make her trust me.
“HEY LENA, WHY NOT LAUGH OFF EVERYONE’S SEXUAL ‘EXPERIMENTS’ AS YOU HAUGHTILY ENJOY REWARDS FOR YOUR OWN PERVERSION?” Sarah Palin thunderously wrote in all caps. “YOU PEDOPHILE, YOU.”
Palin made it clear that she is not in any way “defending the Duggar boy’s obvious wrongdoing over a decade ago,” but noted 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,” she continued.
Palin declared that the Duggar debate needs to now shift to focus on the unethical document leak by a “politically motivated law enforcement official,” the media’s “hell-bent mission to go after the Duggars” while “giving a total pass” to Dunham’s perverted actions, and even the free pass the Clintons have gotten for the time Bill Clinton reportedly hung out on “orgy Island” with convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein and a bevy of underage girls. She demanded the larger Duggar debate now focus on:
1) The shocking, unethical leak of a private, legally protected counseling document by a politically motivated law enforcement official. Media – time to go after her or him for illegalities and for destroying the public’s trust in law enforcement.
2) The media’s hell-bent mission to go after the entire Duggar family for one member’s wrongdoing, while giving a total pass to perverted actions of someone like Lena Dunham – or any other leftwinger celeb caught doing awful things. Remember reports of the pedophile billionaire our former democrat president has been friends with and hung out with on the pedophile’s “orgy island” full of underage girls?
“I hate for anyone to go through this game liberals are allowed to play, relentlessly attacking on an uneven playing field until a conservative’s career, relationships, and reputation are destroyed,” Sarah Palin said. “To the media’s targets I encourage, ‘Rise above by never claiming ‘victim’, tell the truth, and keep the faith!'”
