Twitter Will Not Let Josh Duggar’s Politician Friends Forget They Defended Him After Child Porn Conviction! See What They’ve Said Before!

The response to Josh Duggar‘s verdict is not exactly what we expected.

After a trial lasting just over a week, the 19 Kids And Counting star was found guilty of one charge each receiving and possessing child pornography on Thursday morning, a decision that quickly began to trend on Twitter.

Obviously there’s plenty of cheering — one less child molester off the streets and away from his many young children. It seems unthinkable the jury could have acquitted the 33-year-old after all the evidence against him, but worse verdicts have been read. So it makes sense people are pleased. That’s not the unexpected part.

A TV personality being found guilty of these types of crimes — you’d think all the Q crowd and “Hollywood is a cult of pedophiles” folks would be coming out of the woodwork to give us all an I-told-you-so. Right? Yeah, not so much. They’re all staying pretty mum on the subject.

So where are the Pizzagate bros like Jack Posobiec and Mike Cernovich on this one? They’d rather keep talking about Jussie Smollett and implying all the “libs” knew he was lying. But why spin conspiracy theories when there’s a proven pedo who got famous from the Hollywood machine right in front of them??

See, that may have to do with what a lot of the tweets are about: the reality star and his family’s ties to Republican politicians. Right away tons of social media photos resurfaced showing Josh hobnobbing with the likes of Ted CruzRick SantorumMarco Rubio, and Sarah Palin. Oh, and his own former position as an executive director of the GOP political action committee called the Family Research Council had to be brought up, as well. See some of the ties certain folks would rather you didn’t see (below):

Yeah, it’s a particularly bad look for Mike Huckabee. The former Arkansas governor full-on defended Josh after the first molestation allegations came out in 2015. He posted on Facebook at the time:

“Josh’s actions when he was an underage teen are as he described them himself, ‘inexcusable,’ but that doesn’t mean ‘unforgivable.’ He and his family dealt with it and were honest and open about it with the victims and the authorities. No purpose whatsoever is served by those who are now trying to discredit Josh or his family by sensationalizing the story. Good people make mistakes and do regrettable and even disgusting things.”

LOLz, yes, sensationalizing it. Pretending it’s some shocking and horrible thing when we should be sweeping it under the rug? Sigh.

It gets even worse for Huckabee. He was not only friendly with the Duggars, he was also friendly with the judge who reportedly ordered the Springdale Police Department to destroy the records of Josh’s sexual abuse accusations.

Springdale Police spokesman Scott Lewis said in 2015:

“The judge ordered us yesterday to expunge that record. As far as the Springdale Police Department is concerned this report doesn’t exist.”

That judge was reportedly Stacey Zimmerman, who was appointed twice by Governor Huckabee to serve on select committees.

BTW, Lewis made a point of mentioning that records of this severity are usually kept on file indefinitely. So the only reason to destroy them would be to protect the accused, right? And we know Josh was protected. He was also kept off the sex offenders registry for some unknown reason. And look what happened. Hmm. Republican leaders stepping in to protect their pedophile friends… why does that sound so familiar?

Jim Bob Duggar is, of course, the closest politician to Josh. He’s still in the running for Arkansas State Senate despite his son’s latest crimes — and how he dealt with the past ones. Would Republicans really vote for a man with a family values platform who protected a child molester so that he could victimize more children?
