In as we speak’s episode of News That Should Only Surprise You If You Are Rip Van Winkle, Josh Duggar (the oldest spawn of Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar, the 2 most eerily calm, cheerful Stepfords to exist on planet earth) was arrested yesterday. Today the costs had been introduced. He allegedly acquired and possessed baby pornography. He pled not responsible to each fees, and clearly, he’s legally harmless till confirmed responsible.
Now that we have now that out of the best way, can I simply say WHO THE FUCK DIDN’T SEE THIS COMING?
This is identical Josh Duggar who, in 2015, admitted to touching his little sisters throughout his teen years, being “addicted” to porn, utilizing Ashley Madison, a web site designed to facilitate affairs, and dishonest on his spouse (probably with an unique dancer who got here ahead and alleged that he attacked her throughout a paid encounter, spitting on her, choking her and calling her names, though she finally dropped the case.)
It’s not precisely an enormous leap to imagine his sexually deviant, generally legal behaviors weren’t remoted indiscretions or regardless of the fuck he desires us to assume.
The man, for my part, is a fucking creepazoid, and no matter sexually abusive factor anybody accuses him of, I’m inclined to reply with, “Yeah, sounds about right.”
Child porn isn’t such a leap for an individual who has admitted to molestation and porn dependancy.
As if this wasn’t horrid sufficient by itself, this man has six youngsters and a daughter on the best way together with his spouse, Anna, who I think about one other of his many victims.
Both Josh and Anna grew up in oppressive, sexist fundamentalist evangelical Christian environments (however like, so did I and I’m not a sexual deviant or an fool, in order that’s no excuse.) But it’s type of an evidence for why this piece of shit continues to be married and reproducing.
I’m 99.9% certain Anna in some way thinks forgiving him time and again is godly. It’s extremely seemingly she thinks that divorcing him can be a sin, and that God can ship him from these proclivities. She has purchased, hook, line and sinker, no matter different bullshit they drill into “good girls” in these circles.
Josh has had ample alternatives to do regardless of the hell he desires 24/7 with out being questioned as a result of a very good fundie woman would NEVER. If anybody had the time and means to cover some baby porn, I personally assume it’s Josh Fucking Duggar.
I’ll say that this matter lights me on hearth as a result of a couple of years in the past, a good friend of mine was arrested for baby porn.
I met him and his spouse again in my very own tremendous fundamentalist days, so I’ve a reasonably good insider POV on this example.
My former good friend was caught. (He truly acquired fantastically narced out by a child he tried to molest in individual. The child noped the fuck out of there, instructed his mother, and the pedo ended up within the clink. It was spectacular to observe.)
After he did his time, he acquired out, moved throughout the nation to start out over, and thru all of this, his devoted spouse stayed with him.
But then, he acquired caught once more. I do know. You’re shocked, proper? A pair years in jail truly didn’t treatment a pedophile?! Who would have thought?!
And it wasn’t till that second conviction that his spouse was lastly like, “Oh, shit. I think this asshole might actually be guilty.”
So, now my ex-friend is locked up for a long-ass time, and his spouse is boning somebody new, they usually’re each precisely the place they need to be, which brings me again to Anna.
Anna, woman, it’s time to run.
You ought to have run in 2015 when the molestation/dishonest scandal broke, however there’s not a lot we will do about that. I do know you bought married whenever you had been so younger that your child tooth had been in all probability nonetheless falling out or one thing. You know nothing in regards to the world or the best way to increase a half dozen youngsters alone. I get it, Annie (can I name you Annie?), however I swear there’s extra ready for you than this depressing, scandalous life.
I’d like to see you escape the faith that oppressed you into this hell-on-earth. If you don’t wish to go away, I’m just about 100% sure that one other good, marginally engaging evangelical man who tucks polo shirts into his denims, budgets utilizing Dave Ramsey’s envelope system, and thinks “gosh darnit” is a curse phrase might be prepared to take you on. He would be the “spiritual head” of your new family, and also you’ll be capable of keep house and make tater tot casserole for all of your present youngsters, and actually have a few of his. You don’t have to face by your man when your man is a molesting, dishonest piece of human shit. Jesus didn’t say that. I guarantee you.
This type of shit is what occurs after we sweep abuses beneath the rug time and again.
Maybe the correct counseling and penalties might have helped Josh when he was a younger teenager. I don’t know if that’s a factor or not. But I’m of the opinion that he’s past assist now. If these fees stick (and I’m PRAYING they do) Josh Duggar ought to by no means get an opportunity to be alone together with his youngsters or any baby ever once more.
I hope somebody is interviewing all of his youngest siblings, his youngsters and his nieces and nephews within the meantime. I personally assume these two fees are simply the tip of a darkish, horrifying iceberg of abuse and deception that Josh Duggar and his enabling mother and father and church have been masking up for nearly twenty years.
Prison is simply too good for Josh Duggar, however I’d nonetheless prefer to see him reside there for some time.
