Fox's Megyn Kelly Tells Kids that Jesus was White, Just Like Santa Claus
The Duggar parents were interviewed by Fox host Megyn Kelly last night, and it was pretty much a train wreck. In their world of delusions, the Duggar parents think if they keep repeating that their son Josh is a "reformed" child molester - as if that is even possible - then the fans will believe and help them keep their show on The Learning Channel.
Of course they chose the sympathetic Fox News for the interview - the channel least likely to call them out on bullsh*t.
And if the parents' intervew wasn't bad enough, some of the Duggar girls who were victimized as children have also been interviewed by Kelly, and that will be broadcast this Friday. Of course these brainwashed young ladies are making excuses for Big Brother, saying folks should just chill out over Josh Duggar's predatory nature. Jesus forgave him, blah blah, and so did they.
According to their Daddy Jim-Bob Duggar on Fox, the girls "didn't know anything about it because they were asleep" and the touching was mostly "on top of their clothes." So what? That is still rape, you idiot! I think any kids still at home with these people are at risk, and it would be great if the state of Arkansas would get a clue and rescue them.
One of the worst questions asked by Kelly was whether the Duggars felt they were making a "Sophie's Choice," referring to the referring to the 1982 Film and William Styron's novel about a woman in a concentration camp having to choose to save one child or another. What Kelly missed with that question is that in "Sophie's Choice," both children were innocent victims, but in the case of the Duggars, one child was molesting the other children. Josh Duggar wasn't innocent, and it happened multiple times. The protection given by his parents was as much to save their own reputations and TV show as it was to save their firstborn son, while throwing the daughters under the bus. There is still no mention of how much counseling these very young girls were given, or how devastated they were. It's all about the parents and Josh - the true victims of "Christian Bashing" according to Kelly. It's beyond the beyond of the beyond!!!!
From Fox News
“I think as parents, we felt we’re failures, you know?” Duggar said as she sat down with her husband Jim Bob at their Arkansas home for an exclusive interview on “The Kelly File.”
Asked by Kelly if they thought the backlash against the family had been greater because of what they stood for, including their Christian beliefs, Jim Bob replied, “I think, you know what, Christianity is not about being perfect or about being a perfect family, but it’s actually about being forgiven….
“People on the outside think, ‘well Christians are supposed to be perfect…’ No, you know what, all of us as Christians we struggle every day.”
. . . “As parents we were trying to do the best thing we knew how,” Michelle said.
. . . Asked why they would launch a television show in 2008 with this episode in the family background, Jim Bob replied, “we had nothing to hide. We’d taken care of all that years before.”
From New York Times
Ms. Kelly also spoke to two of the sisters, Jessa Seewald and Jill Dillard. That interview will air on Friday.In a clip from Fox News, Ms. Seewald said in the interview that she was one of the victims and that what Josh did was “very wrong.”“I do want to speak up in his defense against people who are calling him a child molester or a pedophile or a rapist,” she (his sister) said.“I’m like, that is so overboard and a lie, really,” she added. “I mean people get mad at me for saying that, but I can say this because I was one of the victims.”

It's so disgusting that pandering @megynkelly in #DuggarInterview asks facilitators of child molesting: “Aren't you furious you were outed?”— Mrs. Betty Bowers (@BettyBowers) June 4, 2015

And now they're wheeling out the Duggar girls to help with PR. #duggarinterview— Bob Cesca (@bobcesca_go) June 4, 2015
Wow, Jim Bob is talking to lawyers about suing the woman who leaked the story. And the grift continues. #DuggarInterview— Bob Cesca (@bobcesca_go) June 4, 2015
Josh Duggar was only 14 when he molested those girls. He was just a kid. It’s not like he was 12 and had a toy gun in the park or something.— Top Conservative Cat (@TeaPartyCat) May 28, 2015
Take a shot everytime Jim Bob says "over the clothes". This is beyond creepy. #DuggarInterview— Darryl Alber (@hkcollectibles) June 4, 2015

.@TLC Just cancel the Duggars. If you watched that interview and it didn't make your stomach turn, you need therapy, too.— Peg (@IowaPeg) June 4, 2015
Weirdest Duggar "safeguard" revealed in tonight's intv: "no male babysitters." HELLO. The threat was coming from your own family.— Lisa Bloom (@LisaBloom) June 4, 2015
Mainly this Duggar interview is just sad, because the parents are so stunningly ignorant about child sexual abuse. Even now.— Lisa Bloom (@LisaBloom) June 4, 2015
1. What I'd like to see is some soul-searching about this horrible Duggar abuse from fundamentalist Christians and the Quiverful movement.— Jeet Heer (@HeerJeet) June 4, 2015
3. Circling the wagon & forgiving inner circle while condemning others are common faults. Thing is, Christ warned against these very faults— Jeet Heer (@HeerJeet) June 4, 2015
Naming the daughters seems to be the final act of patriarchy. Empower the son, expose the girls to more "shame" in their community. Terrible— Caroline MT (@CaroMT) June 4, 2015
So, I sit here tonight-- angry at the Duggars and every person who fails to protect innocent children.— Goldie Taylor (@goldietaylor) June 4, 2015
