10 Comments From Josh Duggar’s Supporters That Will Make You Want To Punch Your Screen
The internet is abuzz today with the revelation that Josh Duggar allegedly molested multiple female family members. Most of it is outrage. Outrage at how his parents handled it, outrage at TLC for continuing to support the Duggars by airing their show and outrage at the Duggar lifestyle in general. Among all of that anger, sadly, are PLENTY of people who will not only continue to support Josh Duggar, but will vehemently defend him and excuse his vile actions because, Jesus. The most upsetting part of those speaking in his favor is how if it were someone who hadn’t found the Lord, they would be stringing them up and shouting their disapproval from the rooftops. The hypocrisy is strong here, my friends.
I have had people forwarding me webpages and Facebook pages since yesterday with the worst of it so I thought I would round them up here so we could all seethe together in the comfort of our comments section that (blessedly) always gets it right in matters such as this. You are my people and for that, I’m grateful:
1. He’s Just Curious!
Sure! Molesting minor females that are part of your family is TOTALLY normal experimentation and simply a result of innocent, teenage curiosity! Jesus Henry Christ.
2. He Was Just A Kid — Except He Wasn’t
He was 14 when this all started and the police report says one of the victims is STILL a minor today, which would make her all of pre-school aged 12 years ago when these events allegedly occurred. I’m sorry, but a 14 year old messing with a toddler or pre-schooler is not to be so easily forgiven and brushed aside. The 4-year old was a child in this situation. Not Josh.
3. We’ll Stand By You…Unless You’re Gay..Or Had An Abortion
You just know that most of the Duggar fan base holds similar views to the Duggars themselves, who are famous for pushing legislation to limit the rights of the LGBTQ community and choice for women. I find it hilarious (and by hilarious, I mean disgusting) that they’re so willing to forgive something as repulsive as molesting little girls because, JESUS FORGIVES. Shut the fuck up, honestly.
4. He Who Is Without Sin Cast The First Stone So Let’s All Go Cast Stones At People
I find it truly heartwarming how forgiving and open the Duggar fans are now. Maybe they can apply that same attitude toward everyone else in the world instead of judging and condemning the sins of some and excusing the deplorable acts of others! No thank you, please!
5. GET OVER IT, PEOPLE
First of all, accusations of alleged child molestation is not just a sin, you douchebag. IT’S A CRIME. A sin is like, starting longingly at your neighbor’s wife or some such bullshit. This is a crime that people do actual prison time for. Is this how these morons view murderers too? My goodness, get over it! Or, you know, I WON’T.
