Bill Maher went off last night on the Duggar family, reacting to the Josh Duggar molestation scandal, calling them what many Republicans think but won’t dare say out loud “the biggest freaks in the world.”
As for Josh Duggar, Maher said “any time you sexually repress, as religion always does, this is what happens.”
“The shocking, unethical leak of a private, legally protected counseling document by a politically motivated law enforcement official. Media – time to go after her or him for illegalities and for destroying the public’s trust in law enforcement. The media’s hell-bent mission to go after the entire Duggar family for one member’s wrongdoing, while giving a total pass to perverted actions of someone like Lena Dunham – or any other leftwinger celeb caught doing awful things. Remember reports of the pedophile billionaire our former democrat president has been friends with and hung out with on the pedophiles ‘orgy island’ full of underage girls? Such obvious double standards applied to equally relevant stories underestimates the wisdom of the public, discredit the press, and spits on the graves of every American who fought and died for the press’s freedom. I hate for anyone to go through this game liberals are allowed to play, relentlessly attacking on an uneven playing field until a conservative’s career, relationships, and reputation are destroyed.” – Michelle Duggar’s mentor in “mothering” Sarah Palin on her Facebook page
Would anyone like some whine and vinegar with my word salad?
In the first of two (YES TWO) Fox News interviews featuring the stars of TLC’s 19 Kids and Counting, Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar talked to anchor Megyn Kelly about the day their son Josh confessed to molesting his sisters. Kelly will speak to two of Josh Duggar’s siblings – who Fox News identified as Jessa and Jill – on Friday
At one point, Kelly asked Michelle Duggar about a robocall she made that,Kelly said,”suggested transgender people might want to go into the bathrooms of girls, locker rooms of girls, and that they may be child molesters.” “I think that protecting young girls and not allowing young men and men in general to go into a girls’ locker room is just common sense,” Duggar said. “But this is different, because you injected child molestation into it,” Kelly said. At that point, Jim Bob Duggar jumped in to say his wife “actually said pedophile in that [robocall]. And actually a pedophile is an adult that preys on children. Joshua was actually 14 and just turned 15 when he did what he did. I think the legal definition is 16 and up for an adult preying on a child. He was a child preying on a child.” Kelly asked whether the Duggars could understand the reactions of critics to the news.“I can understand that,” Michelle Duggar said. “But I know every one of us has done things wrong. This is more about, there’s an agenda. And there’s people that are purposing to try to bring things out and twisting them to hurt and slander.”
Jim Bob also had the nerve to deflect blame from the molestation to questioned why more attention hasn’t focused on the press leaks: “It has been an unprecedented attack on our family. And this information was released illegally. And so I’m wondering why all this press is not going after the system for releasing these juvenile records. That is a huge story.
You can watch the full disgusting interview below.
As you may have already heard, the Duggar family – stars of the hit TV Show 19 Kids and Counting – have come under attack from bullying activists and radicals simply because of the Duggars’ strong pro-family witness both on and off their show. I ask you to take a moment today to join me in showing your support for the Duggars. We need to send a message to let them know that we, the advocates of traditional marriage and family, appreciate their strong moral voice in the public square. They are an example of how strong marriages and families lie at the foundation of a healthy society. We need more celebrities like them, not fewer! Our country needs a healthier public square where people are heard respectfully, and not merely shouted down by those who disagree. This moment that the Duggars are facing is a test case for what kind of society we want: one where the values of tolerance and respect are truly practiced, or one where only those on the politically-correct side of the conversation get to be heard.” – National Organization for Marriage hate group leader Brian Brownshirt hitching his money beg wagon to the backlash against TLC’s Duggar Klan.
The nationally recognized evangelical extremist hate group the American Family Association is oh so in a tizzy that LGBT’s and their straight friends and allies have started a campaign to get the anti-gay hate-mongering Duggar Klan from TLC’s 19 and Counting off the air. That the AFA that it has started its own campaign and petition to keep the ever multiplying family from being cancelled.
From an AFA Action Alert:
Rabid homosexual activists have made America’s favorite family enemy Number One. The Duggar Family from TLC network’s 19 Kids and Counting has shared their strong Christian faith with millions of families across America for years. They are unashamedly pro-life and Christ-centered. Because of their uncompromising stand on marriage and abstinence, the homosexual lobby has drawn a bully bead on Jim and Michelle Duggar. Gay activists are publicly labeling Jim and Michelle with words like “ignorance” and “fear mongering.” In the past week, homosexuals launched a very frightening and fast-growing petition asking TLC to cancel 19 Kids and Counting. Already, their hate-filled petition has gathered 130,000 signatures, thanks to the liberal media’s propaganda machine. TLC needs to know you support theDuggars and 19 Kids and Counting! If TLC hears from enough Christians, they will not even consider canceling the show. Our goal is 1,000,000 signatures by Christmas!
AFA supporters their ilk have started a Twitter campaign at#DefendTheDuggars. You know what to do.

#DefendTheDuggars right to crassly exploit their children, using them as gimmicks to get vulgar fame and profits never squandered on styling
“God designed marriage to be a loving, dynamic relationship between a husband and wife for a lifetime. God loves marriage and it is supposed to be full of love, joy, fun and romance. Marriage is where romance belongs! Recently, Ben & Jessa received some criticism for posting a kissing picture. We are so grateful they waited to share their first kiss until after marriage. We’ve been married 30 years and are still in love! We had fun trying to duplicate Ben and Jessa’s happily married kissing picture. We challenge all married couples to take a happily married picture and post it here.”
This was posted today on the Family Research Council connected Duggar Klan’s Facebook page.
So what you going do happily married gays and lesbians?
The maker of an anti-abortion shirt is ever so pissed with TLC for “censoring” his message and losing free publicity and sales on this week’s episode of 19 Kids And Counting.
Knowing how dedicated to the pro-life cause the Duggars are, I expected to see the shirts many times on their show. It really amazes me that TLC would censor this; it’s not like people don’t know the Duggar’s beliefs. Knowing that the shirt appeared in the previous episode without being blurred, I am wondering if they received complaints or negative feedback after it aired. I say we show TLC that there is so much more support for the Duggars wearing these shirts than there are complaints. I hope everyone reading this will tweet and e-mail TLC and let them know how disappointed you are that they would blur out this pro-life message.
The shirt reads: “I survived Roe V Wade, Roe V Wade will not survive me.”
Meanwhile America is pissed that TLC hasn’t blurred out the Duggar family period.
Tell TLC its offensive and wrong to let this radical anti-gay, anti-woman, and anti-immigration continue having a show on its network.
With at least 13 people left dead after today’s horrific shooting at a naval office building not far from Capitol Hill and the White House at the Washington D.C. Navy Yards, the Family Research Council has reached a new low even for them by trying to hijack and exploit todays events to garner sympathy for themselves.
Sick media whore bastards.
And yes, this is the same Josh Duggar who’s father could not pull out and comes from the television show 18 19 and Counting on TLC. Josh now works at the FRC as executive director of the lobbying arm FRC Action and Tony Perkins personal buttboy.
Perkins goes way back with the Duggar family: A former Louisiana state legislator, he ran unsuccessfully for Senate in 2002, the same year that patriarch Jim Bob Duggar made a failed bid for Senate from Arkansas, and they’ve been friends ever since.
This of course was after Perkins paid $82,500 to use the mailing list of former Ku Klux Klan leader and state representative David Duke in 1996.
Josh Duggar has campaigned for Rick Santorum and for a restrictive Arkansas law that would ban most abortions after 12 weeks.
TLC’s 19 Kids and Counting, the family that has never heard the phrase “pull it out” endorsed Rick Santorum at a rally in Polk City, Iowa. “All the people in America that have conservative family values have to get behind Rick Santorum for President,” said speaking for all elite reality show hillbilly breeders who pump out kids to be filmed even during miscarriages for a nice fat check said Jim Bob Duggar. (Um, getting “behind” Santorum might not be such a bright move.)
The Duggars “brought ‘about a dozen’ of the kids to Polk City and they drove overnight from Arkansas.” according to BuzzFeed’s Ben Smith. (Gee, I wonder if a TLC camera crew was with them?)
So an inbred hick with 19 kids represents so-called “family values. I don’t suppose that his 3rd grade education is advanced enough to figure out that at least 2 of his kids according to odds will probably be tying rafters to a tree and making them squeal like pigs in the future in the backwoods of Arkansas
