Sarah Palin has accused Lena Dunham of being a pedophile in a long winded Facebook post in which she also described the media as ‘disgusting hypocrites’ over the treatment of reality TV star Josh Duggar, who recently admitted molesting four of his sisters while a teenager.
According to Palin’s logic, the Girls’ star is no different from Duggar and should be held accountable for writing about episodes of sexual experimentation with her younger sister in her best-selling nonfiction book, Not That Kind of Girl.
‘Hey Lena, why not laugh off everyone’s sexual “experiments” as you haughtily enjoy rewards for your own perversion? You pedophile, you,’ wrote Palin in all caps at the start of her diatribe.
Her provocative rant follows a similar blog post by daughter Bristol in which she too complained about ‘double standards’ in the ‘liberal media.’
Girls creator Dunham is the example both Palin’s use to make their argument about ‘double standards’.
They claim the media gave Dunham a ‘free ride’ despite her writing in graphic detail in her book – Not That Kind of Girl – that she had experimented sexually on her younger sister as a child.
‘I can’t believe how crazy the media is going over the Duggar family compared to the big fat yawn they gave Lena Dunham when she wrote in her book that she sexually experimented with her sister,’ wrote Bristol Palin. ‘The double standards make me sick.’
Her mother – the former vice presidential candidate and governor of Alaska – then joined in with even harsher words, calling Dunham a ‘pedophile’ and labeling the media disgusting hypocrites.’
‘Case in point,’ wrote Sarah, ‘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.’
