Sarah Palin blows her top over Duggars coverage: ‘Pervert’ liberals ‘spit on the graves of every American’ soldier

Published

on

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 White House shamelessly uses Fiona Hill’s testimony to paint Democrats as Russian puppets

Published

on

Even though former Trump National Security Council official Fiona Hill angrily denounced President Donald Trump and his allies for spreading Russian conspiracy theories during her impeachment inquiry testimony, the Trump White House is trying to turn her statements against House Democrats.

During her testimony, Hill said that Russia's actions during the 2016 presidential election are still being felt to this day, and they've all been negative for the United States.

"Our nation is being torn apart," she said. "Truth is questioned. Our highly professional and expert career foreign service is being undermined... The Russian government's goal is to weaken our country -- to diminish America's global role and to neutralize a perceived U.S. threat to Russian interests."

Published

on

In a column for the Bulwark, the founder and editor of the conservative website took at hard slap at both Donald Trump's most avid defenders in Congress and their fellow Republicans who have remained silent after E.U. Ambassador Gordon Sondland testified in no uncertain terms that the president was engaged in bribery in his dealings with Ukraine's government.

According to Charlie Sykes, "Yes, there was a quid pro quo. The president demanded it. Everybody knew about it. There was no secret. But we knew all that didn’t we?"

Ex-Fox News executive caught running a disinformation and fake news farm — using writers from Macedonia

Published

on

A New York Times expose revealed that Fox News paid writers in Macedonia to create click-bait that prompt Americans to fight more about issues.

According to the piece, both the left and right websites created by an international content farm to inflame people enough to click and share content. Conservative Edition News and Liberal Edition News intentionally writes stories with the purpose to infuriate each side for the purpose of generating hate-clicks, response articles and more. Headlines like "Austin sex-ed curriculum teaches kids how to obtain an abortion" and "HuffPost writer considers Christianity 'dangerous'" give right-wing audiences fodder for anger to lash out at their counterparts.
