Rick Santorum Threw Josh Duggar Under The Bus, Didn’t Even Hesitate

While most Republican politicians are quietly hoping people won’t see all the pictures they’ve taken with Josh Duggar – except Mike Huckabee who went straight for that sweet Christian persecution money – Rick Santorum has an election to never make it past the primary for, so here he is immediately throwing Josh under the bus despite the fact I’m staring right at the two of them together thanks to a lovely birthday tweet Josh sent him about courage and honesty.

In an interview that aired today on “Good Morning America,” ABC News’ Chief Anchor George Stephanopoulos asked the former U.S. senator from Pennsylvania for his reaction to the story that broke last week about the “19 Kids and Counting” star.
I was sickened by it. I was just sickened by it,” Santorum, a Christian conservative who had the support of the Duggar family during his first presidential campaign in 2012, said. “I pray for those girls in particular.”
He added: “To have gone through that is … just hard to think about.”

Keep in mind, Rick Santorum recently made comments praising Bruce Jenner’s transition only to walk them back not even 24 hours later after he presumably received 8,000 angry calls from the rotary club, so give it until about noon tomorrow before he’s saying, “Have you seen the way a five-year-old dresses? They’re Satan’s booby trap. HASHTAG FREE JOSH!”

The Duggars Rod

I’m going to try and keep this one short today because Photo Boy’s on vacation, and I’m starting to feel gingham in my sleep, but to the surprise of no one, the Duggars beat their children with a rod which probably feels really great while being raised by siblings and having little to no idea who the fuck these people are hitting you in the ass. Where did they even come from? Via Defamer:

Inv. Taylor asked [redacted] about getting spanked. [redacted] said that when [redacted] is bad that [redacted] mother and dad spank [redacted]. Inv. Taylor asked what they use to spank. [redacted] said they have a rod. Inv. Taylor asked if they do this to all the kids and [redacted] said yes. Inv. Taylor asked if they leave any bruising [redacted] said no.

Fun Fact: “duggars rod” is one of my top search terms right now, and if it’s not about this, then I don’t even want to know. I will delete your comments. Anyway, the Duggars also apparently use something called “blanket training” which is naturally some fucked up shit because Jesus needs his obedience or else:

Blanket training is a parenting method that comes from the dangerous, backwards, evangelical parenting book To Train Up a Child by Michael and Debi Pearl. The Pearl method relies on corporal punishment to teach children total obedience, and it’s terrifying—at least three child deaths have been linked to the teachings in the book.
Blanket training is the Pearls’ first step to molding obedient children: starting in infancy, parents put their baby on a blanket and flick them with a flexible ruler or other instrument if the baby tries to roll or crawl off. Eventually, the baby is “trained” to ignore his or her natural curiosity and stay on the blanket, because he or she is scared.

Holy shit, what’s next? Pre-marital semen causes cancer?

Pre-Marital Semen Causes Cancer

Straight from the Duggars’ homeschool curriculum:

Doctors have discovered that the seed of the man is an alien substance to the woman. It triggered responses similar to those of an “allergic” reaction. A woman who has a husband is able to develop “immunity” to this reaction; however, a promiscuous woman’s immune system becomes confused and unable to distinguish alien substances. This confusion is a key to the development of cancer.

But what happens if the slut has sex with a bunch of the same dudes to build up a immunity to all of their cancer sperms? Well, then she better try not to get pregnant because POW! MISCARRIAGE TO THE FACE, BITCH!

The miscarriage or premature birth of a child conceived in unfaithfulness can also be attributed to the stress of the cup of bitter water. This interpretation assumes that the accused WOMAN is pregnant when she is brought before the priest. If the child is the husband’s, she has no reason for guilt, and the child will live.

Wait a minute, didn’t Michelle Duggar have a miscarriage? Oh, snap, you bitter water sipping ho. Damn, girl, you nasty!

The Good News

Advertisers for 19 Kids And Counting are dropping like flies and it’s basically inevitable that the show’s about to get cancelled because this was all such a huge surprise to TLC, you guys. Honest. TMZ reports:

Our sources say there are several reasons why sentiment inside the network leans in the direction of cancellation. First, TLC honchos feel betrayed that Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar did not disclose the fact that Josh had confessed to molesting 5 young girls, some of whom were his sisters.
The other reality … as TMZ reported, advertisers are bailing left and right, and the network is in the business of making money.

Rumors of Josh Duggar molesting his sisters have been online since 2007, and apparently Department of Human Services was involved which we now know because Josh sued them, so I find it pretty hard to believe TLC had no idea. Plus they looked at his goddamn face for 10 years. That should’ve been the first clue from the jump.

“And this is our oldest Jos-“
“HOLY SHIT, HE TOUCHES KIDS! THAT GUY TOUCHES KIDS! Pack it up.”

How that conversation should’ve went.
