Left Tries to Connect Republicans with Josh Duggar, Forgets Their Own Connections

Viewers and fans of TLC’s program 19 Kids and Counting, a reality show based upon the exceptionally large family of fundamentalist Christians Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar, were shocked to hear that oldest son Joshua Duggar had confessed to molesting underage girls while he was a teenager. Duggar has since resigned his position as executive director of an activist division of the Family Research Council, and 19 Kids and Counting has been pulled from the air by TLC.

The scandal didn’t bother me. I never watched the program, and to be honest, the Duggars’ religious view of reproduction was creepy to me. I am a practicing Christian, but as a confessional Lutheran I don’t find their many of their beliefs to be compatible with mine.

However, the Left and Democrats have been rubbing their hands with glee. Look! they pant breathlessly. Look at all the Republicans who have taken pictures with the pervert Josh Duggar! Mike Huckabee! (who has also voiced his support.) Rick Santorum! Sarah Palin! Jeb Bush! Rick Perry! Ted Cruz! Bobby Jindal! Rand Paul!

How unseemly. Even über-radical gay activist Dan Savage found the Democrat cackling to be unsettling, especially when considering that there are victims of Duggar.


Ah, but those of us of who came of age in the 1970’s have the advantage of years and memories of Democrats who aligned themselves with some pretty unsavory characters as well.

Remember the Rev. Jim Jones of the 1978 Jonestown Temple massacre, whose victims were the original “Kool-Aid drinkers?” The Reverend Jim Jones and his San Francisco-based Peoples’ Temple were a favorite of California Democrats. Here’s Jones with California governor Jerry Brown:

And here’s then-First Lady Roslynn Carter with Jim Jones:

Carter JonesSpeaking of Roslynn Carter, she had a tendency to rub elbows with other perverts populating the Democratic party. Here she is with serial killer John Wayne Gacy.

Carter GacyJohn Wayne Gacy was a Chicago serial killer who murdered 33 boys from 1972 to 1978 and stuffed them in the crawlspace of his home. He was also active in Chicago Democratic politics.

And here’s another interesting picture of a notorious Democrat with Al and Tipper Gore:

Phelps GoreSurely you’ll recognize Al and Tipper Gore, but who’s the guy with the five-o’clock shadow and the woman with the straggly hair? Why that’s none other than the late Rev. Fred Phelps of the Westboro Baptist Church and his wife Betty. He supported Gore in 1988, and even ran in five Democratic primaries in Kansas for gubernatorial, senatorial, and mayoral races — thankfully, he won none of them.

And then there’s the guy whose wife is currently running as a Democratic candidate for President. Look who’s rubbing elbows with Bill Clinton in this picture (and we hope that’s all they rubbed. . .)

porn-stars-and-bill-clintonThey’re porn stars.

God forbid Hillary gets into the White House for many reasons, but among them is giving Bill Clinton the title of “First Gentleman.” There’s another Clinton lie right there.

The lesson here? There are three.

First of all, both political parties are composed of thousands of people, and there are bound to be sociopaths among them, especially since politics tends to attract people who desire to be in the presence of power.

Secondly, any political activist can take pictures with politicians.

Finally, remember the old adage about glass houses and stones? The Democratic Party especially would be wise to heed that little saying when it comes to Josh Duggar. I’m not the only one with age and a long memory.

    Deed + delay + cover up + excuses + lots of $$$ to grease the skids.


    An actively involved father who immediately figuratively took the errant son “out behind the woodshed” and then straight to the police station, whose family pursued restoration and even counselling for both families and, since then, the twice-as-old son has put his life-train back on the tracks and never gone off the rails since — unlike most of the other celebrities we’re used to seeing make seemingly endless trips through the revolving door of dysfunction again and again and again.
