‘YOU PEDOPHILE’: Sarah Palin Defends Josh Duggar’s ‘EXPERIMENTS’ By Attacking Lena Dunham, Liberals



Sarah Palin has unleashed what very well may be her most unhinged, fact-less, conservative bubble rant in years.

Thursday afternoon Sarah Palin went berserk.

The woman who might have been the Vice President of the United States posted to Facebook, of course, an attack so ugly, so raw, so unbecoming of someone who considers herself a national leader, it’s shocking.

Here’s how it begins:


Palin is referring to Josh Duggar’s sexual molestation of five girls, including four of his sisters and a babysitter, when he was 15.

What Palin is referring to also is a controversial section from Lena Dunham‘s book, Not That Kind of Girl: A Young Woman Tells You What She’s “Learned”. 

In that passage, which you can read at VOX, Dunham writes that when she was seven she looked inside her younger sister’s vagina.

Certainly an uncomfortable issue for many, if not most people, but she was seven, and thus not a “pedophile,” as Palin charges.

Palin’s unhinged and illogical rant continues.

“Radical liberals in media who have total control over public narratives are disgusting hypocrites, so says my daughter. Go get ’em, Bristol!,” she writes, pointing to a column by her daughter.

“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,” Sarah writes.

She also says she’s “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.”

If anyone can compare equally Dunham’s act when she was seven, which, as VOX notes, experts say “is clearly not a case of abuse,” and “an innocent type of thing,” to Josh Duggar’s repeated molestation of five girls, feel free to try.

Palin then attacks what she wrongly describes as 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.”

Actually, as NCRM reported earlier today, law enforcement and legal experts agree the release of the police reports detailing Josh Duggar’s actions was legal under the Freedom of Information Act, and not “legally protected” nor were their release “illegalities.”

Sorry, Sarah.

She also wonders why the media is “giving a total pass to perverted actions of someone like Lena Dunham” and ignoring “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.”

Palin is referring to tabloid reports like this Page Six piece that claim, according to a young woman, that Bill Clinton was a guest of a convicted sex offender at a “Virgin Islands estate — where group sex was a ‘regular occurrence.'” That woman also accused British Prince Andrew and attorney Alan Dershowitz of having sex with her, which they deny.

There don’t seem to be any police reports, or other substantiation, from those tabloid attacks, and a judge tossed those claims out of court in April.

Palin calls these “equally relevant stories.”

We disagree.

One final observation: the comments on Palin’s Facebook rant don’t seem to be especially supportive of her position, overall.

Biden: ‘When in God’s Name Are We Going to Stand Up to the Gun Lobby?’



President Joe Biden arrived at the White House at 7:18 PM ET Tuesday evening after a five day trip to Asia. About 75 minutes later he stood before television cameras in the Roosevelt Room and asked America, “When in God’s name are we going to stand up to the gun lobby?”

As the President made his way on Air Force One back to the United States he was confronted with the news that multiple elementary school children – first reported as two, then 14, and now 18 – along with at least one teacher, had been gunned down in yet another mass shooting, this time at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas.

“I’d hoped, when I became president, I would not have to do this again. Another massacre at a Texas elementary school. Beautiful, innocent second, third, fourth graders,” President Biden, clearly emotional and choked up, announced. “As a nation, we have to ask: When in God’s name are we going to stand up to the gun lobby? When, in God’s name, will we do what we all know in our gut needs to be done?””

Just ten days earlier a gunman, an avowed white supremacist and antisemite, shot and killed 10 Black people in a local Buffalo grocery store.

“I am sick and tired of it. We have to act. And don’t tell me we can’t have an impact on this carnage,” he said. “For God’s sake, we have to have the courage to stand up to the industry.”

President Biden added, “if an 18-year-old can walk into a gun store and buy two assault weapons, it’s just wrong. What in God’s name do you need an assault weapon for except to kill someone? Deer aren’t running through the forests with kevlar vests on, for God’s sake. It’s just sick.”

“Why are we willing to live with this carnage?”

Democratic Congressman Blasts ‘Baby Killer’ Ted Cruz



U. S. Rep. Ruben Gallego (D-AZ) minced no words Tuesday evening, responding to remarks made by Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) about the mass shooting of 14 elementary school students and one teacher in Uvalde, Texas.

“Just to be clear fuck you @tedcruz you fucking baby killer,” Congressman Gallego tweeted.

Cruz has been widely quoted by CNN and others as saying today, “Inevitably when there’s a murderer of this kind, you see politicians try to politicize it, you see Democrats and a lot of folks in the media whose immediate solution is to try to restrict the constitutional rights of law abiding citizens.”

Rep. Gallego, an Iraq War veteran who served in the U.S. Marine Corps, is seen as a possible primary challenger of Senator Krysten Sinema (D-AZ) in 2024.

He also called Cruz “useless,” and said: “you care about a fetus but you will let our children get slaughtered.”

Both tweets are going viral.
