Jim Bob Duggar had a very different view of incest when he ran the the U.S. Senate in 2002. The God that it is claimed has forgiven son Josh was nowhere in sight when he advocated for the death penalty for incest.

Jim Bob’s platform on his campaign website—preserved via web cache—states that he believes “rape and incest represent heinous crimes and as such should be treated as capital crimes.” Jim Bob offered this belief to explain his position on abortion (only acceptable if both the mother and the baby were going to die anyway, of course):

    I’m shocked, SHOCKED, to find hypocrisy among the religious right.

    Amazing the clarity of thought when the community gathers stones to KILL your children

      i like that.

        Reality has the habit of doing that

          LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11)- Former Kentucky lawmaker and Republican candidate for governor, Steve Nunn, has pleaded guilty to murdering his ex-finance and violating a protection order. It is all part of a plea deal that means Nunn will spend the rest of his life in prison but will not face the death penalty.
          this guy signed into law a bill that would make a person face the death penalty if they violated a restraing order and murder that person. then that. reality bitch slapped the living caca out of his sorry ass.

            Another example of the republican inability to empathize. Which is one of the reasons they really should not be considered Christians. Empathy was kind of a big thing for that dude.

    Somebody help me out here…

    This is a post from a guy who replied to me today, from a post I made 12 days ago.

    Between the caps, and the sentence structure, should I keep on???

    The debate is about oil companies v trains.

        I’m still arguing with the guy.

        It is from GOP senator: I’ll be ‘stunned’ if Republicans handle highway fund responsibly an hour ago

        • Dwendt44 May 27th, 2015 at 12:10 am

          Highways and bridges have long gotten the short end of the stick when it comes to ‘highway funds’. Airports and rail get more than their fair share. Governors play with the road funds, using them to aid their friends and campaign contributors.

      You could do a minimal amount of research and hand him his azz .. but I’m sure a caps locked troll isn’t interested in talking about the costs of pollution lol

    • frambley1 May 27th, 2015 at 1:59 am

      Pretty sure that no matter what you say, and how well you punctuate it, you aren’t going to change his mind. He is too caught up in being an apologist for his overlords.

  5. Chris May 26th, 2015 at 6:56 pm

    Hypocrisy in mile high letters. Wonder if Jim Bob ever cracked open the Bible to see what Jesus thought of such people.

    • whatthe46 May 26th, 2015 at 7:18 pm

      apparently the word “hypocrisy” doesn’t exist in their fk’d up world.

    • Dwendt44 May 27th, 2015 at 12:06 am

      Rape isn’t against any commandments. It’s a minor property ‘crime’ assuming the rapist doesn’t want to marry the victim.

  6. Chinese Democracy May 26th, 2015 at 7:50 pm

    Poor Jim Bob, 18 kids and counting just doesn’t have the same ring to it

  7. ohpaleasegivemeabreak May 26th, 2015 at 7:54 pm

    The problem that people do not seemm to understand is that the Duggers and people like them do not believe rape exists – the woman always asks for it so the man is always the victim.

    • whatthe46 May 26th, 2015 at 10:15 pm

      even when they are little girls in pj’s asleep. it’s her fault for not sleeping with one eye open.

  8. Bunya May 26th, 2015 at 9:24 pm

    This is interesting. When a stranger commits incest, he should be killed. When a family member rapes his siblings, the good christian god forgives him so no harm, no foul. I wonder what the most righteous Jim Bob would say if one of his daughters became pregnant as a result of his son “playing doctor”?

    • whatthe46 May 26th, 2015 at 10:10 pm

      ah, it was his sick twisted god’s will.

    • fahvel May 27th, 2015 at 1:56 am

      with that horde, who’s to say it hasn’t happened already?

  9. William May 27th, 2015 at 1:20 am

    The Duggar family, or as I like to call them, “the meme piñata”, are all about good Christian values. Unlike those liberal flag desecrators and heathen unwed mothers.

  10. UnknownUzer May 27th, 2015 at 5:54 pm

    You all do know that all he did was touch girls trough their clothes, right? Of course you do but you are not out for justice, you are out for political blood. If you cared about justice, you liberals would not still be defending Roman Polanski who as an adult , drugged and anally raped a minor.
    Did liberals condemn him? No.
    They gladly commute out of country to perform in his movies as he hides out from US justice.
    Then there is your poster girl, Lena Dunham, who gleefully bragged about shoving her tongue in her baby sisters vagina after pacifying her with candy into remaining still and quiet for the molestation.
    Did you liberals call for her show to be pulled from the air and that she be arrested? Nope. You helped her profit from her predatory actions by buying her book and giving her awards. And applauded her “bravery”
    So in Liberal land if you are a child who touches siblings through their clothes you are a sexual predator, but if you actually force your penis or tongue into a child you’re either performing “natural sexual exploration”, or “it’s not rape rape” because anal don’t count, so long as the perpetrators are liberals themselves.

    • whatthe46 May 27th, 2015 at 5:59 pm

      tell us please, how bad does your stupidity burn? you sound like a family member fake ass “christian.”

      • UnknownUzer May 27th, 2015 at 8:38 pm

        I’m neither. Not even a fan of their show. I noticed that you didn’t even try to put together a cogent rebuttal. That’s a sign that you are complcit with the hypocritical duplicity I pointed out.

        • whatthe46 May 27th, 2015 at 8:44 pm

          oooooh you told me.

          • UnknownUzer May 27th, 2015 at 8:48 pm

            Damn skippy

          • whatthe46 May 27th, 2015 at 8:55 pm

            yep. you’re quite the stupid!

          • UnknownUzer May 27th, 2015 at 9:03 pm

            That coming from someone who thinks of Lena Dunham molesting her six year old sister as lesbo porn, doesn’t concern me much.

          • whatthe46 May 27th, 2015 at 9:20 pm

            still stupid! and getting worse. slow your roll.

    • arc99 May 27th, 2015 at 9:02 pm

      Here is my cogent rebuttal.

      Either provide a reference to any reputable liberal group who “defended” Roman Polanski or stop lying about what liberals do and do not believe.

      While you are at it, why don’t you stop pretending that you care about child abuse as you attempt to rationalize and justify the actions of someone whose political beliefs are similar to yours while you demonize Lena Dunham who happened to be 7 years old at the time.

      • UnknownUzer May 27th, 2015 at 9:20 pm

        Talk about pretending to care about child abuse. Liberals like yourself are without concern for the victims in the Duggar case, so long as they can use their pain for political vengeance. The fact that not one of you have called for the cancellation of Lena Dunham’s show, and that you still buy her book, and hold her in high demand in music videos etc proves you accept her predatory past because she’s one of you. As far as Polanski is concerned, if liberals were not okay with his actions, Hollywood(capital of liberal land) would not continue to hold him in such demand and high regard. As your fellow liberal, Whoopi Goldberg, said as she defended his sexual assault of a child. “It’s not like it was rape rape”, suggesting that forced anal rape is somehow less traumatic than old fashioned classic rape.
        How about you stop trying to treat a child perving on his siblings as if it is a violent sexual assault, while turning an indifferent shoulder to actually violent sexual offenses by those of similar political leanings.

        • arc99 May 27th, 2015 at 9:34 pm

          You have no clue about whom I am or am not concerned, so drop the hubris which persuades you otherwise.

          If I had my way, neither Duggar nor Polanski would be working anywhere at least in the entertainment media. You see I am not a hypocrite like right wingers who criticize the President’s parenting skills because his daughters listen to Beyonce records but leap to the defense of a 14 year old who should have known better and currently presents himself as some sort of moral role model, making no mention of the failings of the Duggar’s parenting.

          And as far as this monolithic “the left” which exists only in your imagination, there was plenty of criticism for Goldberg’s remarks from Tommy Christopher,, and just to name a few.

          • UnknownUzer May 27th, 2015 at 10:46 pm

            Again no mention of the victims. Your true agenda is clear.

          • whatthe46 May 27th, 2015 at 11:03 pm

            why don’t you speak to the article about how big of a fk’n hypocrite these ignorant, disgusting, bigoted fools are? what is quite clear here you idiot, is that they clearly did not give a damn about their own daugthers and couldn’t care less for the other victims. but before his son was caught fingering little girls he thought they should be punished by death. what’s good for the goose apparently isn’t good for the gander.

          • UnknownUzer May 28th, 2015 at 10:04 am

            The stupid burns indeed, The comparison between child molesters and a child who rubbed his sister’s breast while they slept is nothing more than immoral political opportunism.
            There is a difference between actual predatory rape/incest and a sexually repressed child creeping on his sisters.
            The fact that you insist on lying about his actual crime by stating he “fingered” them just so you can make a more emotionally charged argument proves you have no real concern for the victims or for justice.
            You simply want to silence a conservative voice you find threatening to your agenda.

      • UnknownUzer May 28th, 2015 at 10:10 am

        As far as Dunham being 7 years old at the time of her offense, that is a fallacious number. When input the fact that there is 6 years difference between Dunham and her sister, it would be highly unlikely she was giving candy to an infant in trade for kissing and access to her vagina.

  11. Merlin May 28th, 2015 at 11:20 am

    Of course he did!
