Palin Rants Incoherently About Duggar Situation

Palin Rants Incoherently About Duggar Situation June 5, 2015

You gotta love Sarah Palin’s Facebook page, where she engages in ignorant, incoherent stream-of-consciousness rants on a regular basis. This time she’s reinventing history in order to claim a double standard that she herself is also guilty of as she lashes out at the media and those “radical liberals” that exist only in her imagination.


Radical liberals in media who have total control over public narratives are disgusting hypocrites, so says my daughter. Go get ’em, Bristol! Read her post!…/lets-get-this-straight-liberals-w…/ 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.

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. 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.

In what reality was Lena Dunham given a pass by that evil liberal media? In what reality was she “rewarded with fame and fortune”? In what alternate universe did anyone say that it was “cute”? In the real world the rest of us inhabit, Dunham was hammered for her admission that she had molested her younger sister when she was growing up. Every person I know who is blasting the Duggars also blasted Dunham for the same thing. And her career may well be over because of it.

And there are some differences, of course, like the fact that the Duggars covered all this up for years while pretending to be the perfect Christian family. That did not exist in the Dunham situation. And don’t her accusations of a double standard, if they were accurate, apply to her as well? Here she is calling Dunham a pedophile while defending the Duggars. Here she is lashing out at everyone but Josh Duggar. Her accusation of hypocrisy is, ironically, hypocritical. Quelle surprise.

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.

No more than them (allegedly) fighting for the freedom of fucking idiots like you to spout bullshit.
