Josh Duggar: Molests five year old sister and still continues to liken homosexuality to child abuse. There’s a word for that and that is evil.

Yeah, I know every parent has an instinct to protect their child, but I still would have had to fight awful hard not to geld the little shit the first time I found out. Especially if it came from my own daughter.

Protect their son. That’s what they did. What happens to their daughters didn’t even enter into the discussion apparently. They were too busy covering the sex abuse up to do anything right by their daughters (all of them).

especially one that young. The thing is Jim Bob Duggar certainly talked tough about child abusers as an elected official. He even said they should be executed but it’s awfully interesting how he doesn’t even report his own son to the police? I mean he and Michelle failed those girls so much on so many levels.

And that is the real horror here. That they chose coddling their son over helping their daughters recover from what had to be a very difficult event. But Jim Bob and Michelle decided it was more important to continue making babies, become reality TV stars, etc than actual be parents.

Awaiting more wingnuts to rant “By law, those reports should never have been leaked!”

Because by law, the Duggars should have been investigated by Child services and the kids placed in foster care.

8 Justanotherhuman  Jun 3, 2015 1:06:07pm

I’m wondering if those daughters, all adults now, are anywhere near coming to grips with what their brother did, and the terrible way they were raised?

All of them should be in therapy, away from this terrible family.

The patriarchs are only answerable to God himself. And I am sure Josh prayed and the little voice in his head told him that everything was alright and he was forgiven.

(Not that we’re going to see a Beckert-class* monologue.)

With all the crying about how the Duggars (read: Jim Bob and his wife and Josh) are the victims here, the real victims continue to go unnoticed: those girls, who likely never got any kind of counseling to deal with what happened to them, who were likely told it was their fault, and who had to continue to live in the family home with the person who molested them.

You know the decision was made that they couldn’t get treatment outside the home because any medical or mental health professional would have been compelled to report this.

I have no words to express my disgust with these so-called “parents” and the people who continue to support them.

circle the wagons time for the RW Media Circus…. I expect the amount of poo flung at this is going to be epic in order to distract from the real issue here is that we had a teenager molesting his sisters and the family not only suppressed it; they apparently didn’t do anything for any of the kids to deal with it. They simply prayed it away…..

This report also makes all the “sexual discovery” BS all the more glaring. Once might have been “discovery,” but SEVEN TIMES is impossible to argue as anything other than a kid in very real need of a sit down with a psychologist and a cop, in that order. That he had the balls to then sue the state years later because they investigated the matter tells me he learned absolutely nothing from the episode other than the necessity of keeping such shit behind closed doors.

I really would advise his Stepford wife to wake up and consider getting a divorce, because there’s no telling what he’s doing with the kids when she’s not around.

The Duggars do represent ‘fundamentalist family values’, and fundamentalist propaganda over time has actually promoted behavior exactly paralleling that of the Duggars as appropriate and holy. Check out this Chick tract (trigger warnings apply):
scans-daily.dreamwidth.org

In a better world, Mike Huckabee’s remarks defending Josh Duggar after this story broke would have instantly discredited his candidacy and forced his withdrawal from the race. Instead he’s either tied for 1st or polling only 2-3% behind the 1st place candidate (depending on which poll you look at).

33 Targetpractice  Jun 3, 2015 1:14:07pm

Really, the entire wingnut response to this could be summed up pretty simply: “Stop making us look bad for being associated with these creeps!” That was most of Megyn’s whine yesterday, when she wasn’t partaking in the idea that the real villains of this story are those who leaked the records, it’s that “liberals” are being so mean by bringing up all the instances of Republicans and conservative bigwigs posing for pics with Josh. She and the rest of the Brain-Dead Brigade want people to believe that Josh was just some random guy that these fine, upstanding conservatives happened to pose for a picture with, just like any other supporter they’d get a picture with. That there are pictures of him with so many conservatives doesn’t mean it’s anything but pure coincidence, so stop being so mean to the Duggars!!!

re: #14 Targetpractice

This report also makes all the “sexual discovery” BS all the more glaring.

It’s a rather predictable result stemming from their church’s doctrine on strict gender roles and the total lack of sex education the kids received. The Duggar’s put Josh in charge of the supervising his younger siblings, and taught them all that women are essentially passive chattel in God’s order, subservient to the needs of intrinsically lustful men. What the fuck did they think was going to happen?

38 HappyWarrior  Jun 3, 2015 1:16:29pm

Hell we see excuses here for the Republican politicians that associate with them from time to time. And yes I know those politicians didn’t know about the child abuse that happened but they were aware about how the Duggars view women which is definitely part of what led to the abuse in the first place.

39 darthstar  Jun 3, 2015 1:16:52pm

Michelle Duggar Tells Megyn Kelly She Felt Like ‘Failure’ As In Touch Releases Second Police Report On Son Fondling Sisters

[…]

“They very much understand their show and reputation are on the line,” Kelly told Deadline of this interview. But, she said, the Duggars also believe the show “has a chance still. It’s not totally done.”

“I think they knew they needed to speak to somebody and get their story out,” Kelly added — their story being that the information about their son and daughters was “released without their consent.”

To that end, Kelly said she was particularly interested to learn more about the police chief who gave the redacted report to In Touch. “It’s a little suspicious how it went down,” Kelly said adding, “Very clearly she had no business releasing” the police report.

That comment was made in advance of In Touch’s new report. And, the mayor, Doug Sprouse, has been quoted saying Springdale Police Chief Kathy O’Kelly had consulted with Springdale’s city attorney when the publication set out to get the report via a Freedom of Information Act, concluding together that the police report had to be released in accordance with the law.

[…]

In other words, the Kelly interview is about keeping the Duggar brand viable, so the scam can keep their marks.

And Fox running after the police chief is very much a diversion tactic.

It would probably also help to get out of that cult as well.

I think that’s a necessity for a full recovery. Otherwise, feelings of being temptresses and of heading to hell if they don’t forgive the bad brother won’t go away.

Yeah and I say this as someone who grew up in that culture and spent most of my life in it—there’s much good there I’ll admit. Very close communities, strongly supportive of one another, etc. But it’s also a culture that’s highly argumentative about many things and hypercritical of “the world” and most others outside of the church.

Really, what Kelly and other conservatives are arguing is that the city should have refused to release the report, forcing In Touch to take the matter to court long enough for Josh and or his parents to file to have the records expunged, as they did immediately after they became public.

Unfortunately the only way they’re leaving that family is by choice. Hell some of them may even want to leave but may not feel they have anywhere they can go. Someone on here was mentioning that one of the sisters wanted to move to New York and Jim Bob forbade it and then I think she said D.C or something and they were willing to allow that if Josh moved in with her and she immediately changed her mind.

I have to admit that I have watched the Duggars’ show in the past and enjoyed it. I was fooled by the wholesome image they put forth when the cameras are rolling.

I guess I knew they were RWNJs but on TV they seemed to handle their huge clan of children with much more patience and grace than my wife and I are usually able to muster with our “paltry” 3.

And Fox running after the police chief is very much a diversion tactic.

She cares more about being a reality TV star than being a mother. this Kelly interview is going to be even worse than I thought after seeing that blurb.

Fox didn’t do any real coverage on the story, less than two minutes, until Megyn Kelly secured the “exclusive” interview. Now they’re covering the story, but only in way that supports Kelly’s narrative that the Duggars are “victims” of whoever leaked the report.

Guess it took Fox, Inc some time to decide what angle they wanted to run with.

Lena is partially to blame for the outrage, the way she formulated things:

As she grew, I took to bribing her time and affection: one dollar in quarters if I could do her makeup like a “motorcycle chick.” Three pieces of candy if I could kiss her on the lips for five seconds. Whatever she wanted to watch on TV if she would just “relax on me.” Basically, anything a sexual predator might do to woo a small suburban girl, I was trying.

But it’s an adult’s memories, which do not necessarily correspond to anything that actually happened. False memory is esp. rampant when we “remember” childhood.

The Show is the storefront window through which they market their belief system. As I mentioned back during the Brian Williams scandal, television is about curating footage to create verisimilitude. Reality television takes that curation a further step and creates narrative. As grossed out as I am with this molestation scandal, it’s not like the rest of ATI/Quiverfull is better…so I’m fascinated by how their existence is chopped/filtered to look good on camera.

TLC gets zero dollars from me because I’ve never liked their “reality” shows, but I really hope that this particular case makes people think about what they’re presented with.

re: #10 klys (maker of Silmarils)

With all the crying about how the Duggars (read: Jim Bob and his wife and Josh) are the victims here, the real victims continue to go unnoticed: those girls, who likely never got any kind of counseling to deal with what happened to them, who were likely told it was their fault, and who had to continue to live in the family home with the person who molested them.

You know the decision was made that they couldn’t get treatment outside the home because any medical or mental health professional would have been compelled to report this.

I have no words to express my disgust with these so-called “parents” and the people who continue to support them.

You know the old saw about how the older you get, the less you realize you didn’t know?

Unfortunately the only way they’re leaving that family is by choice. Hell some of them may even want to leave but may not feel they have anywhere they can go. Someone on here was mentioning that one of the sisters wanted to move to New York and Jim Bob forbade it and then I think she said D.C or something and they were willing to allow that if Josh moved in with her and she immediately changed her mind.

The road to recovery is full of hurdles for them. Accepting the facts that one’s brother attacked, and one’s parents were more concerned about protecting the brother then their daughters… it means a good self-opinion might require rejection of their entire family if no sisters will come with. It’s a hard road. Can be very lonely.

What I read left me with the feeling that I was very uncomfortable with what she described doing, especially some of the sections that went beyond what we’ve talked about here.

However, her existence and what she might have done doesn’t negate what Josh did to his sisters (plus apparently one unrelated victim) or the things that Jim Bob and his wife did to cover it up and keep their image clean.

Many of these young ladies told me that I was their “spiritual father.” I accepted this position with joy and delight. Even today, many remind me of this status with them.

re: #24 Mike Lamb

No…Caitlynn Jenner.

No Problem…Rod Dreher is right there for you in todays bird spattered issue of TAC:

My friend Damon Linker has a theory about why we religious and social conservatives are so unnerved by the Caitlyn Jenner freakshow. Excerpts:

Given all of this, panic and even a dose of anger on the right are perfectly understandable. Still, I worry that thoughtful conservatives are moving a little too rashly to denunciation, resorting to language about the triumph of “Autonomous Eroticized Individualism,” and writing about the advent of a new “diabolic age.” (Both phrases come from my friend Rod Dreher.)

Yes, something important in America’s moral culture has changed (with the change accelerating in recent years), but that change isn’t simply a triumph of “postmodern freedom.” (Also Dreher.) What we’re witnessing is the withering away of the morality of ends — including a vision of human flourishing rooted in Protestant Christianity — that once prevailed in American public and private life. This comprehensive moral vision is being supplanted by a much more minimalist (but no less absolutist) morality of rights that aims above all to protect individuals from various forms of harm.

Before I go further, it’s important to point readers to the essay in which I elaborated on what I meant by a “diabolic age.” I’m deliberately playing off the conventional meaning of “diabolic,” but deepening and broadening it by discussing that etymologically, “diabolic” is the antonym of “symbolic,” meaning that what is diabolic separates, tears in two, rather than unites and harmonizes. In that post to which I link, I talk about how modern globalized economics tears communities to bits, as well as how modern sexual ethics, built as they are on an ideology of the supremacy of individualism and eroticism. As a Christian, I see the hand of el Diablo in all of this, but you do not have to be any sort of believer to recognize the rapid and ongoing atomization of human solidarity with the past, with tradition, with each other, and with anything outside of the willed, chosen Self.

Those diabolic transgenders are all behind it.

B) Stopped the reality TV show from happening. C) Stopped with the LGBT hatred and lies, D) Stopped having kids and actually worked on being parents to your kids especially the ones that were abused.

re: #92 Nyet

Seems like while some parts of the US are progressing towards more openness and equality, others are sliding even more back into primeval mud.

It’s fear - actually, more like stark terror - at modernity. The modern world, changing social mores, everything, is simply too much for some people or groups to grasp. Thus, the reversion to a more primitive ideal, or at least, an excessively nostalgic attachment to - and a desire to revert to - a past that never really existed.

For some folks, modernity is a bridge too far. It’s disruptive to their settled routines, to their underlying worldview, and as far as they’re quite concerned, it must be stopped, no matter what. What was it William Buckley once said? “A conservative is someone who stands athwart history, yelling ‘Stop!’, at a time when no one is inclined to do so, or to have much patience with those who so urge it.”

That sums it quite nicely. They wish to halt the forward momentum of history for no other reason then it makes them uncomfortable.

109 Aunty Entity Dragon  Jun 3, 2015 1:47:45pm

BY the way…this is the question I posted to Rod over at TAC and he refused to run the comment (all comments are pre-appvoved by him)

The freak out is that you no longer dictate control over another person’s body or life. You can dress it up in dusty Greek metaphysical jargon like ontology and teleology…but really you are merely afraid that general society no longer cares about obscure philosophy and will not hand you the means to enforce it. It is interesting that you decry “atomizaton” of individual will even though that is precisely what allowed you to change religious belief (If you tried that in 1632 Germany, well…good luck avoiding a bonfire). Moreover, you predicate “reality” on unprovable, legalistic philosophical musings that you preselect to fit your existing bias. Your experience of worshipping an invisible God who does not speak to or interact with humans in any provable fashion is reality(for you), while Caitlen Jenner’s attempts to deal with a real, observable problem as she thinks best is something to mock.

Why should your “reality” based on unprovable philosophical traditions that essentially amount to an appeal to authority have any particular credence in Ms Jenner’s personal life? Serious question.

Yeah Rod no sex abuse ever happened before this age. It was all fine until this age where more people started treating LGBT people like human beings rather than demonically possessed that everything went ot hell. Why don’t you go fuck yourself Rod and stop blaming LGBT people and demons for the actions of what people who subscribe to a worldview like yours do? It’s not the fault of LGBT people that Josh Duggar molested his sisters. LGBT people actually treat their children with love and respect which isn’t what the Duggars did here.

Rod is a deeply authoritarian traditionalist, and order is far more important to rights.

Transgendered people and gay people violate his sense order (based on appeals to 3,000 year old Greek musings), and he literally cannot stand that. From his link on rights vs ends.

If you’re committed to an overarching (religious or philosophical) vision of human flourishing that precludes gender reassignment surgery, then an expression of disapproval and perhaps even disgust at the Vanity Fair cover would seem to be in order. But if you’ve left behind any such comprehensive morality of ends in favor of a morality of rights, then it’s hard to see what’s wrong with Jenner’s actions, or with the magazine in promoting them publicly on its cover

You see what they are getting at ? Conservative morality is not interested in rights…only in the ends of a moral, structured society. I think I begin to understand why a certain strain of conservative was so utterly inimical to the civil rights campaigns in our history and why they (Rod included) are so hostile to civil rights unrest in Amerca now. Order leads to a moral society.

Fox News’ Megyn Kelly Teases Duggar Interview, Talks Big ‘Gets’ and Bigger Ratings

“It will not be a ‘gotcha’ or an attempt to bring down the Duggars,” Fox News anchor tells TheWrap about her sit-down with the embattled reality-TV family […]

Although she promises it won’t be her last headline-making sit-down. “We are very much in contention for the biggest ‘gets’ right now,” Kelly said. “It’s a jump ball, but I think that ball is tipping over to me.”

[…]

In other words, it’s all about harvesting the Duggar marks for their last penny.

TLC could test waters for Duggars’ future with Fox News interview

Experts said the Duggars’ interview with Fox News host Megyn Kelly could offer TLC the chance to test the waters for future programming, gauging viewer interest in watching the Duggars publicly apologize.

“The network is waiting to see whether Jim Bob and Michelle can dig their family out of this substantial hole that they’ve created,” said Craig Detweiler, a communications professor at Pepperdine University in California.

The problem is that most cats will have a two to one (or better) weight advantage on most owls and unless they have been declawed or some such, are quite capable of inflicting serious or fatal damage themselves (and have really freaking good reflexes). There are a few cases of large barn owls killing house cats in a surprise attack at night, but that is not in effect here. Both animals are aware of the other and are prepared to fight. My sense is that after a one good go around, the owl would conclude that there is nothing to be gained meal wise here and would vacate rather then risk losing a wing.

83rd General Assembly > Regular Session, 2001

Vice Chair: Judiciary - House Corrections & Criminal Law Subcommittee
Judiciary Committee - House
Insurance & Commerce - House
Insurance & Commerce - House Insurance Subcommittee
Non-Voting: State Agencies & Govt’L Affairs - House
Alternate: Legislative Council Alternates

Vice Chair: Judiciary Committee - House
Vice Chair: Judiciary - House Courts & Civil Law Subcommittee
Vice Chair: City, County & Local Affairs Committee - House
Vice Chair: City, County & Local Affairs - House Planning Subcommittee
ex officio: Education Committee - House

Additionally, he was the primary or co-sponsor on a LOT of bills during his two terms. I won’t post them as the lists are too long and the page they’re on also lists his address & phone number. They’ve probably changed since then, but nonetheless I don’t want to run afoul of the LGF rules.

Hmmm I think I’m wrong. He ran for US Senate in 2002. Lost in the primary to the incumbent GOP Senator who is the current GOP governor’s brother who I believe had a controversy about leaving his wife for his secretary. He also ran for the State Senate in 2006 but lost the primary there too. So he didn’t step down because of what happened with his son.

I’m not at all surprised he was trying to move up to the national level. A lot of the bills he sponsored (or co-sponsored) at the state level were typical wingnut things, so it follows that he’d want to step up to the next level. FWIW, a lot of the bills he was involved with died without going anywhere, but all that was back before the GOP went full metal wingnut—i.e. he was basically a Tea Bagger before it was considered “cool”.

I notice that, with the exception of Sanders, all those others who are challenging Hillary are primarily center-right Democrats who are trying to pick up votes from those folks who might think she’s “too far to the left.” Yeah, there’s a winning strategy right there, running as a Diet Republican.

Chaffee is an ex-Republican, and IIRC Webb was a blue dog.

O’Malley, Chafree, Sanders, whoever - these are not household names. I bet most Americans have no clue who they are. The hill is too steep for them to climb.

I think it is better with more candidates, but here is the problem of a party having a President incumbent after 8 years - no one in the party has run a national platform for 8 years.

Hillary has overcome that with two advantages: 1) Bill, 2) being SoS under Obama.

Trying to figure out what Chaffee’s appeal is going to be towards. I like the guy actually but not seeing who he appeals to.

When I saw him speak last month, his big thing was that he has always had integrity and that nobody would be able to find any scandal about him (obviously in preparation for his going back 15 years for dirt about Hillary.)

I thought he seemed like a nice guy—did get to talk to him one-on-one for awhile (there weren’t many others showing any interest in him). It was right after one of the news sites had run their “There’s a Democrat who nobody’s ever heard of running” stories. I told him that I HAD heard of him—he laughed. Talked more to one of his staffers, who was really quite interesting.

This was at our state Dem convention. He wasn’t treated badly, but there was next to no enthusiasm about him.

Just as an aside, holding property in a trust is not necessarily a bad thing, and there are a lot of reasons to do so. Here in CA, putting property in the trust means taking it out of the probate process, which can take years to get resolved.

“The U.S. Metric Study recommended that the United States implement a carefully planned transition to the principal use of the metric system over a decade. Congress passed the Metric Conversion Act of 1975 “to coordinate and plan the increasing use of the metric system in the United States”. Voluntary conversion was initiated, and the United States Metric Board (USMB) was established for planning, coordination, and public education. The public education component led to public awareness of the metric system, but the public response included resistance, apathy, and sometimes ridicule.[9] In 1981, the USMB reported to Congress that it lacked the clear Congressional mandate necessary to bring about national conversion. Because of this ineffectiveness and an effort of the Reagan administration — particularly from Lyn Nofziger’s efforts[10] as a White House advisor to the Reagan administration, to reduce federal spending — the USMB was disbanded in the autumn of 1982.”

The primary cause of this discrepancy was that one piece of ground software supplied by Lockheed Martin produced results in a United States customary unit (“American”), contrary to its Software Interface Specification (SIS), while a second system, supplied by NASA, that used those results expected them to be in metric units, in accord with the SIS. Software that calculated the total impulse produced by thruster firings calculated results in pound-seconds. The trajectory calculation used these results to correct the predicted position of the spacecraft for the effects of thruster firings. This software expected its inputs to be in newton-seconds.[16]

The discrepancy between calculated and measured position, resulting in the discrepancy between desired and actual orbit insertion altitude, had been noticed earlier by at least two navigators, whose concerns were dismissed. A meeting of trajectory software engineers, trajectory software operators (navigators), propulsion engineers, and managers, was convened to consider the possibility of executing Trajectory Correction Maneuver-5, which was in the schedule. Attendees of the meeting recall an agreement to conduct TCM-5, but it was ultimately not done.

I think perhaps this is for the benefit of Mary Duggar, JB’s mother, who lives with them. She is probably invested heavily in the property without putting her name on it, but theirs.

I know in NC that people were putting their parent’s homes in trusts to avoid the possibility of it being used as an asset when applying for nursing home care, and that was stopped.

* - Peter Lorre’s character in the 1931 movie “M”. I’m sure it’s on YouTube with just that part, though the whole movie is very good.

Ooo! One of my favorite film-nerd nuggets: the scene where Beckert is put before a tribunal of other crooks … the “extras” in the scene were actually members of the Berlin criminal underground. M is often cited as one of the movies that was decades before its time.

Chaffee’s entire selling point is “I voted against the Iraq War.” Bully for him, but what else is he bringing to the table?

He’s also pretty strong on environmental issues and civil rights, and being willing to go against party discipline (before he finally gave up on being the last remaining Rockefeller Republican and changed his registration).

Further ripping off the poor, cont. It unraveled when someone shoplifted steaks from a Walmart to sell to one of these stores, which they would then sell at marked-up prices.

Corner stores turned EBT cards into cash for drugs, wired profit to Yemen, authorities say

al.com

(snip)

The government reloads money onto those EBT cards monthly. Once the store owners and managers bought the cards, they would then go to a wholesaler where they would buy goods and bring them back to their stores to sell at a further inflated price. In return, the person who sold their EBT card now had cash to buy items not allowed to be purchased under the government system, such as alcohol, tobacco and drugs.

“They’re selling their cards to get those things,” Deputy District Attorney Cynthia Raulston said.

“Part of the problem, in my opinion, is now they don’t have their food stamps card so they don’t have the money to take care of their families or themselves,” Raulston said. “I think it’s a huge cycle of remaining impoverished.”

“One of the biggest issues is they’re marking up these items in the stores and charging more than what retailers would charge and they’re in the middle of food deserts with no transportation so they don’t have a lot of options,” Raulston said. “It’s not only the EBT card beneficiaries, but you’ve got the working poor paying marked up prices. They’re getting ripped off.”

On the metric system, strikes me as a quirk. Unimportant in the face of current events. I have to switch measuring systems so much as part of my day job I’m darn near bilingual. I can think in either system.

The Rolling Stones are playing at the U of M’s new football stadium tonight. I’m not going but my boss is all psyched about it. I just checked WeatherUnderground and there’s a really sharp band of heavy rain that’ll probably hit the Cities by about 7:00-7:30. There have been rain showers (sometimes heavy) moving through town all day today so the concert may be really soggy.

Yes, that’s right, it’s not the company’s fault for allowing the pipe to corrode to the point that it spewed oil, it’s the city’s for not preparing for the company allowing its own pipe to fail.

Michelle playing the “we felt like failures as parents” angle, to stroke sympathy from all those parents out there who have had that thought a time or two.

That line alone is going to get a bunch of sympathy where it isn’t warranted.

Oh yeah, they felt like such failures at parenting that they decided to participate in a television series showcasing their “wholesome” family and celebrating their “virtuous, “Godly” lifestyle. What fucking HYPOCRITES!!!!

That’s what really kills me. Sure, molestation is probably pretty common amongst severely sex education deprived young people. I confess that while Josh’s behavior was execrable, the way he was being brought up make his initial offenses seem possilbly marginally forgivable (…..maybe……I like to give young people the benefit of the doubt. I can imagine that the kind of exploration so many kids engage in when they are 6 or 7 was so FORBIDDEN in his experience that he did not even dare to experience that until he was 14!——-maybe….)

However, his continued adult hypocrisy in chastising the gay community for transgressions that he himself committed is unspeakably vile.
