Fox News pundit and former Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin exploded on Thursday at liberals who she said were “perverts” and “disgusting hypocrites” after Michelle and Jim Bob Duggar revealed to Fox News that they had failed to stop their son, Josh, from molesting young girls when he was 14 years old.

In a Facebook post the day after the Duggars spoke to Fox’s Megyn Kelly, Palin lashed out at actress Lena Dunham, who wrote in her book That Kind of Girl that she was 7 years old when she had touched her sister’s genitals.

“Radical liberals in media who have total control over public narratives are disgusting hypocrites, so says my daughter,” Palin wrote, linking to a pro-Duggar column penned by her daughter, Bristol. “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.”

While Palin argued that she was not defended “the Duggar boy’s obvious wrongdoing over a decade ago,” she insisted that 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,” 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.”

According to Palin, the “wrongdoing” that the media should be discussing was the leak of Josh Duggar’s records, and “the media’s hell-bent mission to go after the entire Duggar 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.

For those who feel targeted by the media, Palin had some advice: “Rise above by never claiming ‘victim’, tell the truth, and keep the faith!”

“Welcome to my world; believe me – what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger!”

Trump’s website hacked and defaced to stop the ‘fake-news’ spread by the president: report

Published

on

President Donald Trump's website appeared to have been briefly hacked on Tuesday -- one week before the 2020 presidential campaign.

Visitors to the site briefly saw a fake DOJ takedown notice.

"This site was seized," the message read. "The world has had enough of the fake-news spreaded (sic) by President Donald J. Trump."

"It is time to allow the world to know the truth," the message continued.

The message also claimed "secret conversations" prove the Trump administration "is involved in the origin of the coronavirus."

There is no evidence that is the case, experts believe the virus originated in China.

GOP frets over ‘green tsunami’ as Democrats spend millions on the offensive in red House seats: report

Published

on

On Tuesday, The New York Times reported that Republicans are frustrated over the blitz of Democratic spending in House races, acknowledging they are likely to see their minority shrink even further.

"Bolstered by an enormous cash-on-hand advantage, a series of critical Republican recruitment failures and a wave of liberal enthusiasm, Democrats have fortified their grip on hard-fought seats won in 2018 that allowed them to seize control of the House," reported Emily Cochrane and Catie Edmondson. "They have trained their firepower and huge campaign coffers on once-solid Republican footholds in affluent suburban districts, where many voters have become disillusioned with Mr. Trump."

MSNBC's Ari Melber asked his guests Tuesday why, specifically, they thought Joe Biden might be better than Trump for America now right now. 

"It comes down to one simple thing for me, Ari, and that's race. He's with a man that understands and appreciates diversity over this nation. I think Biden does and I know for a fact Trump doesn't. He will never appreciate the diversity that made this country great," Jack O'Donnell said.
