If there’s anyone with absolutely no credibility or any deserving reason to be on television and the news cycles, it’s Sarah Palin. And if there’s anyone who can use her complete and utter lack of any real world awareness and intellectual curiosity and turn it into a “victim card,” it’s the Queen Snow Grifter. Naturally it seemed almost mandatory that her handlers feed her manipulative ways to defend Jesus-loving Republicans, who just so happened to harbor an incestuous rapist. You know, a mere technicality.
A day after the Duggars gave what had to be the most abortive interview with Fox’s Megyn Kelly, Palin decided to blast actress Lena Dunham. The Girls actress wrote in her book, That Kind of Girl, that she was seven years old when she had touched her sister’s genitals.
“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,” Palin complained. “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.”
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,” she added. (Raw Story)
Okay–so Lena Dunham just so happens to be a vile, talentless waste of space. Further, someone who only got anywhere in showbiz due to her equally talentless but wealthy father. She’s not quite as solipsistic and vapid as Palin in her labored attempts at seeming chic or smart, but Palin surely has way more experience in that regard.
Obviously what Lena Dunham did, as told in her book “Not That Kind of Girl,” was creepy and wrong. However, Sarah and her entire snow-white trash clan are the personification of creepy and wrong, and her efforts are purely to perpetuate her long history of hypocritical victimization. Say what you will about Lena Dunham (and there’s plenty), but I don’t recall her ever equating other people’s lifestyle to that of pedophiles while secretively being one. Also, Lena was seven years-old at the time, as opposed to Josh Duggar’s 14-17.
