This era in American History will be described as the Era of the Grift. Using jingoism and ultra-nationalism, any sort of behavior by the “good” Americans (right wing, Evangelical exclusively) can be excused just as long as the overall ideology is promoted, the dogma broadcast, and it makes money.

Man alive, everything these people say just gives me the willies.

And Pol Pot was a little too curious about mass murder.

Meh. This kind of grift occurs in every era and on from all sides. It waxes and wanes in various groups and factions, but it never goes away because it taps into the great human need to identify with a group of others. The great majority of humans have a strong need for belonging and it is this the grifters tap into.

For god’s sake, somebody get these people a public relations SWAT team, stat! This is a slow-motion train wreck coupled with a dirigible explosion and a cat 5 tornado.

I keep saying this: They talked to a cop friend of theirs, OK, I can see that happening.

But then that cop is doing time now (and a LOT of it) because of child porn. I’m not Lt. Joe Kenda, but if I saw those two facts together, I’d be saying “Well My, My, My…”

I try not to be a judgmental prick when people are doing their own things — even kids. I had two dark secrets like this when I was a kid too. I did the ole “show me yours and I’ll show you mine” to the next door neighbor’s girl when I was about 10, and after I discovered how to masturbate by accident, I showed my younger brother — then pretty much realized it was “wrong” and we two never spoke of it again.

But in both of those cases, all people involved — even though they were minors — it was consensual.

I also had a sister growing up who was 10 years younger than me and I never ever ever would dream of touching her — even though I was a horn-dog in my teen years.

As for that interview you linked to, here’s two girls who have spent years in front of a camera most likely in scripted situations, so I wonder how much of that interview was scripted for them as well. I wonder if they realize they are living in a prison.

I’ll always wonder just how hands on ol’ Jim Bob was with his daughters.

Yeah. Like what was set in the family as being acceptable? Normal is what you are accustomed to.

re: #4 Dark_Falcon

Whatever makes you sleep better at night.

I get it, you have some sort of grievance against the Democrats, fine, but don’t feed us this bullshit every time a scandal involving a right wing cultural totem comes out of the works.

Please. Its an insult to the intelligence of every poster here when you inevitably pop in with your both sides do it-ism.

I would also like you to point out examples of grifting during the abolitionist era, progressive era, new deal era, and early civil rights and great society era. If you have any that is.
