Jill Dillard & Jessa Seewald Talk About Being Molested By Big Brother Josh Duggar On Fox News

jessa jill

Fox News really knew how to drag this one out. Earlier this week, they played an hour long interview with Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar regarding their son Josh Duggar‘s history of molesting underage girls. Last night, it was Jessa & Jill’s turn to speak out on their big brother’s behalf, especially considering they were two of his victims. Megyn Kelly didn’t really ask any hard-hitting questions, but that’s fine – the girls were more than willing to defend Josh’s honour and insist that he’s a changed man and that it’s this whole media rigamarole that’s been more of a “re-victimization” than when Josh molested them. Yikes.

Here’s what we learned from the interview.

  • Jill and Jessa were 12 and “9 or 10″ respectively when Josh molested them. They say they were both unaware of the abuse until their parents spoke with them (separately) to inform them of what happened.
  • Josh was “sent away” from the house following the reveal of his abuse, which made the girls “sad” because “he’s our brother – we were kids”. However, when he came back, they found he was a changed man and agreed to grant him “forgiveness with boundaries”.
  • While Josh did remain in the house, there were apparently “safeguards” put in place to keep the girls safe, including locks on their doors and not allowing Josh to babysit his younger siblings.
  • In general, both Jill and Jessa seemed brainwashed into believing that we’re all taking sexual abuse too seriously. Jill called their abuse “very mild compared to what some go through” (?????), while Jessa explained it so much more eloquently (LOL):  “I do want to speak up in his defense against people who are calling him a child molester or pedophile or rapist, as some people are saying. That’s so overboard and a lie, really. People will get mad at me for saying, but I can say this. I was one of the victims, you know? So I can speak out and set the record straight here… In Josh’s case, he as a boy — a young boy in puberty — and he was a little too curious about girls. And that got him in trouble. He made some bad choices, but the extent of it was mild inappropriate touching on clothed victims, most of which while girls were sleeping.” Sigh!
  • Confronted with the irony that Josh is an outspoken critic of LGBT lifestyles, Jessa said this gem: “That’s right. It’s right to say, ‘Here’s what I believe, here’s my values,’ even if you’ve made stupid mistakes or had failures. Even if you’ve had failures in your past, it doesn’t mean you can’t be changed. The real issue is that people are making this sound like it was yesterday, but it happened 12 years ago when he was a child himself. So I think seeing the change in his life — we witnessed it, we know.” Yikes. 

You can watch the complete interview below, but I warn you, your brain will probably melt inside your skull.

Sarah Palin Brings Lena Dunham Into Josh Duggar’s Molestation Scandal

sarah palin lena dunham

Why am I not surprised that Sarah Palin would a) defend Josh Duggar being a sexual predator b) try to make the issue about something else entirely by going for a “liberal” to distract from the real issue? That’s indeed what’s happened, however. You see, Sarah thinks it’s bad of us to condemn the Duggars for their deplorable behavior when Lena Dunham ostensibly molested her younger sister as a child.

I’m just going to embed Palin’s entire Facebook post here, because it’s pretty lengthy and oh, believe you me, it’s worth reading:

HEY LENA, WHY NOT LAUGH OFF EVERYONE'S SEXUAL "EXPERIMENTS" AS YOU HAUGHTILY ENJOY REWARDS FOR YOUR OWN PERVERSION? YOU…

Posted by Sarah Palin on Thursday, 4 June 2015

A few observations/comments now that we’ve all made it through that:

1. Lena Dunham IS deplorable. What she did was not only completely unacceptable, but the fact that she found it “story-worthy” and an endearing anecdote to put in her memoir is disturbing. I cannot stand Dunham (for more than that reason, but that’s a MAJOR one) and I do believe what she did counts as sexual abuse.

2. That being said, Dunham’s behavior literally has zero to do with Josh Duggar’s. They don’t know one another, they’ve never met, they’re not in the same circle… I mean, what? Only Palin could turn what is an issue that affects EVERYONE into a political one. She should be ashamed of herself, but I feel like we should know by now that’s not a feeling she’s capable of.

3. The reason everyone is going after Josh Duggar – who, let’s be clear, is a SERIAL OFFENDER who continued to commit these acts of pedophilia, molestation, and incest over a NUMBER of years and seemingly thought it was funny – AND his family is because the family is in this together. Not only did they do nothing to protect their daughters – HIS VICTIMS – but they did everything to conceal what he did from everyone and have consistently lied about it since. It’s disgusting.

4. Just because Dunham did something terrible doesn’t preclude Josh Duggar from doing something terrible or anyone else, either. There’s room enough for more than one asshole in this world. Palin’s entire Republican party proves that on a daily basis. You know, if you want to make it about politics.

BYE.

Josh Duggar Molested ’4 Sisters & A Babysitter’, Duggar Parents Reveal

duggars

Michelle and Jim Bob Duggar sat down with Megyn Kelly for Fox News yesterday to talk about their son Josh Duggar‘s history as a molester of underage girls, four of which happen to be his sisters (the other was a babysitter). While Josh’s parents say they were “devastated” by the realization that their son was a sex offender who “made bad choices”, they seemed to be more devastated by the idea that their TLC series was getting canceled so doing an interview about their son’s criminal behavior seemed the right thing to do.

In case you missed it, here are a few things that were said during the interview.

- Jim Bob & Michelle pulled Josh out of the house after discovering his behaviour and then said that they put “safeguards in place” to protect their daughters, though they refused to say what those safeguards were.

- The parents claim that more than one of Josh’s sisters was only “single digits” in age when Josh molested them, and they “didn’t understand” what had happened to them. Jim Bob & Michelle also claimed that the news of Josh’s molestation was more traumatizing to his victims than the actual molestation itself. Yes, seriously.

- Jim Bob & Michelle sent Josh off to a “Christian-based man” in Arkansas who “works with young men” to help cure him of his predatory ways.

- This gem: “Josh came to us. He was crying. He had just turned 14 and he said he had improperly touched some of our daughters. He said he was just curious about girls and he had gone in and just basically touched them over their clothes while they were sleeping. They didn’t even know he had done it.

- Jim Bob & Michelle also claim they “did the best [they] could”.

Well, that’s special. This family is a fucking mess and needs to disappear forever, and that’s the least of it. I feel so bad for their 19 kids – every last one of them, because they’re all victims in various ways, especially Josh. His parents have failed him and all the other kids in so many ways. It’s a wonder the rest of them are even functioning in society.

The Duggar Family To Talk Molestation Allegations With Fox News

duggar family

When you’re part of a fucked up cult made up of your spouse and your 19 children, and one of those children molests 5 underage girls and you try to cover it up but then it comes out and your TLC show gets canceled because that’s the very least you deserve, what’s left to do? Well, you can go on Fox News and chat with Megyn Kelly for some more money/publicity to strike while the iron’s still hot, because it surely won’t be for much longer. That’s exactly what Jim Bob Duggar and his wife Michelle will be doing!

From The Hollywood Reporter:

“Next week we will sit down with Megyn Kelly on Fox News to share our hearts with you about the pain that we walked through as a family twelve years ago, the tears we all shed and the forgiveness that was given. We appreciate the outpouring of love and prayers for our family at this time,” the posted in a joint statement.

In a statement released by Fox, the network said Kelly will speak with the Duggar parents about molestation allegations brought against their oldest son, Josh Duggar, that occurred 12 years ago. According to a 2006 police report published by In Touch, Josh Duggar, now a married 27-year-old with three children, sexually molested five girls as far back as 2002, when Duggar was 14 years old. Duggar’s own sisters were among the alleged victims.

The interview will take place at the Duggar family home in Arkansas and additional portions will air during a one-hour Kelly File special on Friday, June 5th at 9 p.m. ET.

The exclusive sit-down interview will air Wednesday, June 3 at 9 p.m. ET on Fox News’ The Kelly File.

Sounds riveting. What could these weirdos possibly have to say about this entire thing? What excuse could they offer? What more is there to talk about? Nothing will make up for Josh’s horrendous actions, or the backward ass thinking of this entire family. No thanks.

Josh Duggar Makes Incest Joke In Old Episode Of ’19 Kids And Counting’ — VIDEO

josh duggar

This weird thing always happens where, when a serious scandal is uncovered, all this proof that it was going on over the years is suddenly looked back upon and everyone’s like, “Oh shit, how did we not see this?” Such is the case with Josh Duggar, who molested a bunch of underage girls and is basically a complete and under shitbag. Turns out, he wasn’t all that secretive about his disgusting ways and on a 2008 episode of 19 Kids and Counting, he made a weird incest joke that – knowing what we know now – comes off is really, REALLY creepy.

I don’t even know what to say about this, to be honest. This man is disgusting, and the fact that he has a daughter is terrifying. I hope someone steps in before it’s too late. You don’t suddenly just “get over” it and start being a decent human being.

TLC Pulls ’19 Kids and Counting’ Amidst Josh Duggar’s Child Molestation Controversy

duggar-800

Thankfully, TLC decided to step up to the plate and do the right thing by immediately removing 19 Kids and Counting from its schedule after Josh Duggar‘s history of sexually abusing underage girls (and his parents’ attempts to cover all that up) came to light this week. There’s no word as to whether the show is cancelled for good, and before all that, TLC was actually running a MARATHON of the show, full of episodes that focused a lot on Josh, so… take from that what you will.

Here’s the statement TLC released:

“Effective immediately, TLC has pulled all episodes of 19 Kids and Counting currently from the air. We are deeply saddened and troubled by this heartbreaking situation, and our thoughts and prayers are with the family and victims at this difficult time.”

Of course, they can’t legally say anything else about it, and there is precedence for this since they also cancelled Here Comes Honey Boo Boo after Mama June was letting a convicted child molester have access to her children, but WTF is wrong with these families? I honestly can’t deal.

Oh, and here’s another disgusting element to this whole thing: police have actually destroyed the records regarding Duggar’s crimes, because that’s totally what law enforcement does?

On Thursday, May 21, a spokesperson for the Springdale Police Department confirmed to Us Weekly that local circuit Judge Stacey Zimmerman signed for the offense report from 2006 to be expunged.

The records allegedly contained information of Duggar’s suspected molestation of the girls when he was 14 years old. According to TMZ, the now-destroyed investigation documents said Duggar allegedly fondled the breasts and genitals of the females.

Meanwhile, local Arkansas paper, the Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette, obtained a copy of the report on Thursday. The paper said the report was “heavily redacted” and did not include the identities of the kids involved.

I’m glad the kids’ names have been redacted – the victims should always be protected. But protecting this sick piece of shit and his equally sick parents? No, just NO.

Josh Duggar Has Been Molesting Underage Girls

josh duggar

Raise your hand if you’re shocked that the Duggar family is super fucked up. No one? Didn’t think so. Josh Duggar, one of the family’s 19 weirdo kids, has been charged with molesting underage girls… including his sisters. Yikes.

From TMZ:

The story was broken by In Touch Weekly, but TMZ has confirmed with law enforcement that Josh Duggar — who was around 14 at the time —  was the alleged molester against 5 girls starting in 2002.

According to the police report, Josh fondled the genitals and breasts of the girls, some of whom were sleeping, but sometimes they were interacting with him … in one case reading a book.

There was another reported incident 9 months later. According to the police report, the police were not immediately contacted. Instead, Jim  Bob, the dad, met with church elders and agreed Josh should be put in a treatment program.  The police report says Josh’s mom, Michelle, said it wasn’t really a treatment center … they simply sent Josh to a guy who was remodeling a building to do manual labor.

In 2006, the family was scheduled to appear on “Oprah,” and before the show someone sent an email to Harpo warning that Josh had molested girls. Harpo forwarded the email to a hotline, which triggered a police investigation.

Cops wanted to question Josh, but Jim Bob lawyered him up and Josh declined the invitation.

Josh, who is now 27, apparently cannot be charged because the statute of limitations has run.

As for the Duggars, one of the family members told investigators, “this entire incident had brought the family closer to God” … this according to the police report.

Oh yeah, did I mention that the Duggar parents covered this whole thing up for YEARS? Real Christianly of them, supporting sexual assault in the name of God. But then, I suppose those values only apply when it’s convenient for them. Fuck the Duggars, and this molester. I can’t believe he’s just going to get away with it. Ugh.

And one more thing – did you know that this guy is a father? Lovely!

UPDATE: He’s apologized for his crimes.

“Twelve years ago, as a young teenager, I acted inexcusably for which I am extremely sorry and deeply regret,” Duggar, now 27, said in a statement to People magazine. “I hurt others, including my family and close friends.”

“I confessed this to my parents who took several steps to help me address the situation. We spoke with the authorities where I confessed my wrongdoing, and my parents arranged for me and those affected by my actions to receive counseling. I understood that if I continued down this wrong road that I would end up ruining my life … I would do anything to go back to those teen years and take different actions. I sought forgiveness from those I had wronged and asked Christ to forgive me and come into my life. In my life today, I am so very thankful for God’s grace, mercy and redemption.”

Let us not forget, either, that his parents lied about him being in counseling and they’ve been more concerned with protecting Josh than their daughters. Fuck the Duggars.
