Sarah Palin slammed the liberal media Thursday for its handling of the Josh Duggar sexual abuse scandal, turning attention instead to HBO star Lena Dunham and the double standard she says exists.
"HEY LENA, WHY NOT LAUGH OFF EVERYONE'S SEXUAL ‘EXPERIMENTS’ AS YOU HAUGHTILY ENJOY REWARDS FOR YOUR OWN PERVERSION? YOU PEDOPHILE, YOU," 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 directed her FB followers to read a post written by her daughter, Bristol Palin, for Patheos.com. The article is titled, "Let's Get This Straight, Liberals – What Kinds of Molestation Are Acceptable?"
The Palins appeared outraged that Dunham was not similarly villainized by the media when she wrote in her book “Not That Kind of Girl” about touching her little sister's genitals as a child
The Thursday FB post came after Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar spoke to Megyn Kelly on Fox News about their son Josh,
who admitted to fondling four of his sisters and a babysitter when he was a teenager in 2002 and 2003. Two of the victimized Duggar daughters, Jill Dillard and Jessa Seewald, also spoke with the network.
"I’m not defending the Duggar boy's obvious wrongdoing over a decade ago. The main victim in any story like this isn't the perpetrator, it's the innocent ones so harmfully affected," Sarah Palin wrote in her Facebook post. "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. 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."
Palin said the focus now should be on how confidential police reports were leaked and the “media’s hell-bent mission to go after the entire Duggar family for one member’s wrongdoing.”
Reactions to Palin’s angry post were varied online:
"Go get her Sarah, people like her get away with it, disgusting!!!" one person commented on Palin’s FB post.
