As you might be aware, this hasn’t been the greatest year for rapists, child molesters, and other sick, predatory bastards.
From Hollywood to D.C., the most loathsome behavior imaginable is being called out like never before.
But it seems the coast-to-coast tidal wave of disgust skipped right over the tiny town of Tontitown, Arkansas.
It was just two years ago that the world Josh Duggar molested five young girls, four of whom were his sisters, while he was still living at home with his parents, Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar.
Those same parents have admitted to helping Josh hide his crimes from law enforcement officials, thus enabling him to avoid being prosecuted.
We assume to Jim Bob and Michelle recently got a call from Harvey Weinstein, because the fact that they were able to mitigate the ensuing damage to their public image so effectively that they’re now back on TV is impressive in a truly nauseating way.
There was a very brief time in which the Duggars made an effort to keep Josh off their social media pages, but as you can see from the family’s Thanksgiving photo (below) those days are long gone:
Yes, there’s Josh front-and-center, and while a surprising majority of Duggar fans saw no cause for complaint, others pointed out that there’s something very, very wrong with this picture.
“Can’t believe you still let those children near Josh. Ugh. Absolutely disgusting,” commented one fan.
“That’s disgusting and inappropriate,” another remarked.
“Hope Josh kept his hands to himself at Thanksgiving and that no girls fell into a tryptophan nap. He loves those sleeping girls!” a third “joked.”
Instagram comments are all well and good, but hopefully you folks are expressing your misgivings in sternly-worded emails TLC, as well.
Another vocal contingent pointed out that Joy-Anna Duggar and Austin Forsyth are curiously missing from the photo.
Naturally, the conspiracy theorists came out of the woodwork to claim the absence as further proof that Joy-Anna got pregnant before her wedding and is currently being hidden from public view so as to hide the fact that she’s several months further along than the Duggars would have us believe.
Others pointed out that it’s entirely possible the newlyweds simply decided to spend the holiday with Austin’s family.
Whatever the case, it’s yet another Duggar Thanksgiving photo that’s stuffed full of controversy.
Just wait until the Christmas card, which will presumably feature the Honorable Judge Roy Moore in a Santa costume.
