Sarah Palin Slams ‘Pedophile’ Lena Dunham, Defends Duggar Family

Sarah and Bristol Palin lashed out at Lena Dunham and the media on Thursday, with Sarah Palin calling Dunham a “pedophile” and blasting the media for focusing on the recent molestation revelations from Josh Duggar rather than Dunham.

Bristol Palin wrote a blog post Thursday morning calling out the “liberal media,” bringing up a passage in Dunham’s 2014 memoir “Not That Kind of Girl” in which the “Girls” star writes about exploring her little sister Grace’s body when they were children.

“That makes me want to puke,” Palin wrote. “Remember the liberal media outrage? Oh that’s right. It didn’t happen.”

Bristol Palin compares this to the media treatment of Duggar, the “19 Kids and Counting” star who admitted to molesting five underage girls — four of whom were his sisters. TLC has pulled episodes of the show and Duggar stepped down from his position at the Family Research Council.

Sarah Palin backed her daughter up with a subsequent Facebook post, writing in all caps: “HEY LENA, WHY NOT LAUGH OFF EVERYONE’S SEXUAL “EXPERIMENTS” AS YOU HAUGHTILY ENJOY REWARDS FOR YOUR OWN PERVERSION? YOU PEDOPHILE, YOU.”

Sarah Palin went on to say that the media thinks “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.”

“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,” the former Alaska governor wrote.

Dunham has yet to respond to Sarah or Bristol Palin. Read Sarah Palin’s full post below.
