18 kids and the rapey one

It would seem that TLC, which revels in taking weird, fucked up people and making them teevee stars, isn’t too keen on sex criming kids. They cancelled Here Comes Honey Boo Boo after it was revealed that the show’s matriarch, Mama June, was shacking up with a dude that child-molested one of her kids. And now TLC has pulled all scheduled airings of 19 Kids And Counting, after revelations that Josh Duggar molested his sisters. We don’t know if TLC is looking for a new slogan, but Wonkette is willing to sell them “Standards: They’re Low, But We Have Them!” for $100,000.

TMZ reports that, after a backlash that came Thursday night as America collectively threw up over Josh Duggar’s past sex crimes, all while TLC was running a 19 Kids marathon (!!!), they have pulled the show for now, though the network says that “they absolutely have not made a long-term decision” for the future. TMZ also reports that General Mills has pulled all its ads from the show, because we guess they don’t want Cheerios associated with kid-touching in people’s minds.

Was it because Mama June Boo Boo was so mad that the Duggars got to have a teevee show even with the molesting, but she did not get to have a teevee show with the molesting? MAYBE. It would be irresponsible not to speculate!

But what is weird is that, as Defamer points out, it sure seems like TLC had to have known about Josh Duggar’s kid-molesting meat fingers for quite a while. In 2006, as police reports were being taken, the Duggars were in Chicago, taping a special for Oprah Winfrey, which Winfrey cancelled, presumably because of the letter someone had written her about Josh Duggar’s sex crimes. So, Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar knew. Oprah knew. The police in Springdale, Arkansas, knew. And, as Defamer reports, “apparently, a huge community of message board posters online” knew.

So really, what Defamer would like to know, and so would Wonkette, is when did TLC find out? Was it before they decided to give the Duggars the show? Did they find out somewhere in the middle, as they were raking in all the advertising moneys and whore diamonds off this show starring one clown-car vagina and all the fruits what sprung from it? Did they find out from the police report, on Thursday, with the rest of us? WHEN DID THEY KNOW?

Speaking of those “community message boards,” many are aware that they’ve been around for years, and as with all forums of the internet variety, you’ve got to take them with a grain of salt, because people are dumb and full of themselves on the internet. But way back in 2005, somebody posted this (which is but one example) on a board called “FactNet,” and it was later reposted on FreeJinger, probably the largest message board dedicated to The Duggars Are Gross And Bad. It’s from somebody called “concernedmom” who was affiliated with the ATI homeschooling cult they’re affiliated with:

messageboard

And which family was highlighted on the Discovery Channel around then? Well besides yours AND mine, it was the Duggars, who, if we are to believe this commenter, got their little son betrothed to a young girl, and then got them betrothed again after he had properly said he was sorry to Jesus for his sex criming.

Now, again, internet message boards are The Worst, but this sort of information seems to jibe with what we know now! And this was out there in 2005, before the Duggar family and TLC started raking in all the millions together. So, again, did they know? Because we’d hate to think they did, and just decided to hope against hope that nobody ever found out.

And if so, when did they know about Mama June’s child-rapey boyfriend? AND WHAT ARE THEY HIDING ABOUT THE PALINS?

    Why can’t TLC be more like Jesus and forgive the Duggars?

    • BadKitty904

      Jesus doesn’t pay their bills – advertisers do.

      • Villago Delenda Est

        This is why you ALWAYS go after the true customers of any media outfit…the advertisers, who will listen if you say “I’m not going to watch this channel and your advertising dollars will be wasted”.

        Bullshit always takes a hike under those circumstances.

  • Mehmeisterjr

    What are they hiding about the Palins?

    OMG, I just realized that the Palins are stupid, vulgar, grifting snowbillies. I had no idea!

    • kindness

      Yea but at least the Palins kinda use birth control (maybe some of the time).

      • Wee Mousie

        As long as the Palins kept their clan up in the wilds of Alaskan polar bear country, they can discount their decaying attempts at birth control and concentrate on becoming fanatically taciturn.

    If Daddy Duggar had just given little Josh a pet goat instead of reading My Pet Goat to him, I wouldn’t be typing this.

      Wouldn’t that then be: TLG -Touching Little Goats? I haz a confusement. Halp!!

  • Candy Apple

    As much as I hate the very idea of this show and everything it represents, I was kind of hoping they’d leave it on the air. They should have to face the repercussions of their hypocrisy each week.

    • BadKitty904

      I might actually watch that.

    • malsperanza

      Too hard on the little girls. There are some real victims in this story, and they’ve been relentlessly exposed by both TLC and their own parents.

      • Wee Mousie

        True, but with further instruction from their homeschooling parents, in a few years I can see them hosting, “Surviving Molestation With Jeebus,” on the Traditionally Lame Channel.

  • Jan Ness

    TLC = The Learning Channel — we are learning that those who protest too much…

  • Baby_Raptor

    In before people start martyrbating and screaming about “rights violations”.

    • Villago Delenda Est

      Oh, I expect the soon-to-be-banhammered to be arriving shortly. Popcorn needs to be passed around.

      • Baby_Raptor

        Surprisingly I haven’t seen many defenders yet. Lots of people on Twitter congratulating General Mills for dropping them, though.

        Maybe it’s still early?

        • Villago Delenda Est

          I’ve seen the trolls show up hours after the initial opening of the thread, and it’s Friday…might not set in for three to four hours.

  • SnarkOff

    Just you wait. There will only be more good Christians molesting their sisters once gay marriage is legal.

  • elviouslyqueer

    Dear TLC:

    Just drag a $10 bill around a nearby trailer park. You might actually find a better class of family about which to do a show.

    Kisses,

    • kindness

      A family of meth addicts would be more entertaining and apparently just as pure. Go figure.

      • nothingisamiss

        It would be irresponsible not to speculate that I might be more inclined to watch meth addicts than Duggars.

        • Wee Mousie

          The meth heads would be more appealing, no speculation.

      • BackDoorMan

        … I understand the Palin family has some time on their hands, what with the Bristle/Dickota nuptials being canceled and all. Somebody at TLC ought to give them a call.

  • JustPixelz

    If TLC didn’t know, this would be a breach of contract double dip: Morals clause and failure to disclose. TLC is owned by a publicly traded company, which means they totally have to sue if they didn’t know. If they don’t sue, it means they knew.

    • onedollarjuana

      Isn’t covering up (sex) crimes a crime in itself?

      • SnarkOff

        It’s not a crime if you ask Baby Jesus for forgiveness and are really sincere.

        • BadKitty904

          Or do so in public.

          • Dee Andee

            Pharisee libulz!!!1111!!!

      • Kat Anyperson

        Yes, in fact, Jim Bob voted as a House Rep in his state to make that illegal on several occasions prior to him supposedly finding out about the molestations.

        • nothingisamiss

          I’m late in the thread, I know, but now I need to know more. Jim Bob Asshole voted to make reporting abuse illegal?! WTF?!

          • Kat Anyperson

            My apologies, I should have linked the language of the bill at some point. I blame lack of coffee. (It’s always lack of coffee.)

            Jim Bob Duggar the elected official voted yea on Arkansas HB1765 on 3/27/2001. Within it was this language:

            ” “Neglect” means those acts or omissions of a parent, guardian, custodian, foster parent, or any person who is entrusted with the juvenile’s care by a parent, custodian, guardian, or foster parent, including, but not limited to, an agent or employee of a public or private residential home, child care facility, public or private school, or any person legally responsible under state law for the juvenile’s welfare, which constitute:

            (A) Failure or refusal to prevent the abuse of the juvenile when such person knows or has reasonable cause to know the juvenile is or has been abused

            (C) Failure to take reasonable action to protect the juvenile from abandonment, abuse, sexual abuse, sexual exploitation, neglect, or parental unfitness where the existence of such condition was known or should have been known

            (G) Failure to appropriately supervise the juvenile which results in the juvenile’s being left alone at an inappropriate age or in inappropriate circumstances which put the juvenile in danger ”

            So, this guy was all for prosecution of parents who did nothing to stop child abuse when they had reason to suspect it would happen again… till one year later and they learned their 14 year old repeatedly diddled several of his sisters.

          • BackDoorMan

            … hypocrisy in action. Josh learned well at the feet of Jim Bob (eww!)… this whole “do as I say not as I do” bullshit is getting really, *really* tiresome.

      • BadKitty904

        IOKIYAR…

      • mtn_philosoph

        Can’t accuse TLC of “covering up” a sex crime since the crime in question had already been reported to and investigated by the police years earlier.

    • Enfant Terrible

      Do they have to sue? Isn’t separation and voiding the contract a sufficient remedy?

      • Wee Mousie

        Having more kids than a Platoon Sargent can handle means that some of them have to be destroyed for the greater good, but luckily the Duggar family has so many kids, no one will miss the probable half-dozen who fuck up.

        • Villago Delenda Est

          The span of control of one individual is four or five individuals, six tops. Beyond that, it becomes really problematic.

          This is why military units are structured the way they are.

          Even a platoon sergeant has some junior NCOs to help out with the supervision.

  • starfanglednut

    In all seriousness, if a 14 year old is molesting his sisters, something is very, very fucked up in the family, and the kid really shouldn’t, IMO, be blamed. I really blame the parents and the court system for not getting the kid the help and supervision he needed to treat him and keep other children safe.

    The subsequent odious self righteousness and gay hating on the other hand, that’s Josh’s fault. So fuck him for that.

    • Villago Delenda Est

      The Tribe protects its own, under all circumstances, and as long as the members of the patriarchy mouth the right words of contrition, to the correct invisible sky buddy, forgiveness will happen, no matter how much that doesn’t change the fact that a bunch of girls (yes, I know, female and therefore they don’t count, just like Ferengi females) are psychologically scarred for life and will probably never be able to have normal, healthy intimate lives, and the dysfunction will yet again be passed on to another generation.

      Yeah, huge run on sentence, but damn, this shit CAN be stopped, the cycle CAN be broken, but it won’t, because The Tribe is about the patriarchy and perpetuating the patriarchy no matter how much damage it does.

    • SuspectedDemocrat

      Their buddy system delegates all parental duties to the older children. So don’t blame the parents if someone dropped the ball here.

      • Left Coast Tom

        Josh is the oldest, no?

        • Villago Delenda Est

          Aye.

      • borninatrailer

        It’s the trickle down theory of child raising.

        ..
        .
        …that may have been a poor choice of words.

      • dshwa

        Yeah, and expecting a teenager to be able to handle a pervy older brother’s bad behavior to their “buddy?” That’s a metric fuckton of shittastic parenting.

    • Marie Shannon

      I agree on both your points…thanks for pointing those out.

    • harryeagar

      A bit harsh on the court system,which wasn’t involved. Because cover-up.

  • Ilgattomorte

    Can you really blame poor little Joshey? Think about it. Michelle and Jim Bob (a name so good I’d have made it up if it wasn’t already real) have 19 kids, plus the kids having kids and God knows what kind of sex the grandchildren are having. If you take in to account that every bullet Jim Bob, Clem Bob and Bob Bob have fired didn’t hit the target the first time, this group must be having A LOT OF SEX, all of the time.

    Their household must be writhing, jizz-covered, orgy-fest that would put the Roman Empire to shame. I’m guessing you can’t find a flat surface in the whole place that doesn’t stick to you. How could poor Josh develop into a normal well adjusted young man with this kind of perverse family influence? Why, it’s a wonder that all of the kids haven’t turned into sex-crazed, molesting, splooge monsters.

    … or have they? We can only speculate.

    • lesterthegiantape

      I’m thinking of a Swiffer commercial If it can clean up this mess…………..!

    • Marie Shannon

      Yeah I do feel kinda sorry for him…he was forced (IMO) into this hypocrisy…and the sex crime.

    • dshwa

      Honestly, I do feel a tiny bit sorry for 14 year old Josh, who could have gotten some actual real therapeutic help then and there and maybe been saved from becoming a monster. Instead, he got nothing, because of some strange belief in Jesus can fix everything and that you can pray away the perv. But I don’t feel sorry for him now, because he’s led a crusade of calling gays perverts while having been one himself all along.

  • TheBidenator

    Who cares about the intrigue and what have you, another stupid assed weird sanctimonious fundie family show (featuring a clown car vagina) bites the dust amiright? Because that’s what I care about…

      Wonder what would happen if they came out with a show about a huge, religious, home-schooling BLACK family.

      • Celtic_Gnome

        Ratings would plummet. The target audience wouldn’t accept a family that obviously isn’t part of their reality.

    • LutherZBlissett

      If TLC’s known about this since 2006, that’s nine years for them to prep up a replacement fundie family by getting them to spew out a megabrood.

  • eastcoastlib

    Sad because I loved the shows set in Alaska on the Discovery Channel. Can’t watch any more. The suits at Discovery made a choice. They decided to hire a pedophile and keep his sickening behavior a secret, putting his sisters, his own children and god only knows who else at risk. I’ll never be able to watch another show on that network without being creeped the fuck out.

  • Sheepshagger

    Eight year old girl made to confess the sin of masturbation in front of the group…..

    That’s how you make em godly! Shame, fear and public humiliation! Be a real shame if that poor wee tyke figured out its a few years till she is criminally responsible for her actions and “played” with a gun she “found” and had an “accident” involving one of these shit bag fuck stains. I would be real sad about that.

  • Catstro

    Evangelicals in important government positions covering up sex crimes in the Deep South? That whole thing with getting “scared straight” by the highway patrolman who was convicted for child porn? Apparently True Detective was a documentary.

    • Villago Delenda Est

      Don’t know. Want update!

      • OrdinaryJoe

        Hang on cowboys. Not that I am not curious also. Let them have their private time to experience this. The Wonkettistas will let us know when the seedling arrives. Not like some idiot reality show where everything (or in he Ugger case most everything) gets played out as an exhibitionist televised family orgy.

        • Villago Delenda Est

          I’d just like a “nothing has happened yet” message to keep us up to date, that’s all, if indeed nothing has happened. Trix and Pix are two of the reasons we hang here.

          • OrdinaryJoe

            It like the crazy extended family in the cyber waiting room of the virtual nursery waiting to start passing out the blogcigars.

        I had huge issues with a parent last year over her son’s plagiarized work in my class. I checked her twitter feed just for fun, and she was tweeting with that woman about how wonderful and insightful LIM was, and could LIM help her with some mediumizing? Yeah, that really helped me take mom more seriously.

    • Vienna Woods

      And now, “An Official Statement”

  • JoeChristmas

    They destroyed the records? Sounds like skullduggery!!1!

  • JohnR

    This is all just so sad and sick, fucking religious nuts.

  • borninatrailer

    Seriously though, the number of posts featuring Christian persecution, “regular old teenage bad decision making” and comparisons to other shows on TLC that are also offensive was a little mind blowing. Part of me hopes *those* were why the thread got nuked. Part of me fears *those* were the good posts and the only reason it got nuked was the snark mob.

    You’d think stuff on them there internetz would no longer surprise me.

  • Seriously, I am astounded how the folks who love the show actually feel poor Josh has been unfairly judged and crucified. They seem to think what he did was no worse than if he’d stolen a pack of smokes from the corner store when he was eight years old (the little scamp!).

    Lots of people really seem to feel this way.

    As WC Fields said: It baffles science.

    • Spotts1701

      I’m not astounded. People will excuse anything if it means they can justify their own beliefs. “How could that person be a bad person? I know what a bad person looks like. Therefore, he can’t be bad.”

        • Nine

          I’m pretty sure that sex with a consenting adult is considered a perversion in AR.

    • D_C_Wilson

    Maybe…just maybe this will bring some attention to this terrible issue. I have known a number of incest pedophiles in my life (itsn’t that a sad statement?). A family that I knew had an uncle they named Chester the Molester…two of the nieces stopped that horror when he went after their daughters. I knewe for a short time a woman with 3 daugters who had been forced to commit oral on their “sperm donor” after he beat the crap out of the mother. (He was a very, very rich man with powerful connections). Someone I have known for a long time was revealed to have molested his two daughters. And you know what was the outcome of all these ….. very very messed up young women who may be gorgeous and talented and even successful (money/fame) but who are so ravaged inside that they are unable to have a successful intimate relationship and are subject to depression and feelings of self-hatred.

            And a lot of Christians have defended those various cults just because they were into Jesus. They did with the Branch Davidians as I recall.

      • VirginiaLady

        Where is Child Protective Services? Isn’t this the sort of thing they are supposed to be handling?

        • Historicat

          Arkansas – they were too busy dealing with Justin Harris’s pissy little demands.

  • Bill T.

    Now is the perfect time for Rupert Murdock to launch a network dedicated to child molesters. He can get the Vatican and Mike Huckabee to sponsor it.

  • chascates

    I really think these be called ‘unreality shows’.

    • Toomush_Infer

      Nope. Unfortunately, it’s all too real….

  • I_Buttle

    God people make me fucking puke. Is that the way it’s supposed to be cuz faith or something too?

  • Angry_Cop

    I was just kind of joking when I observed to someone a long time ago that this family must just be one big perv orgy. I did not actually believe that such was the case, but as usual, reality teaches us that all humor is just truth bound up in a laugh.

    • Angry_Cop

      I’ll also say this in Josh’s defense (and not much else): that family is so fucked up sexually – I mean the whole vaginal clown car thing and elevation of the reproductive act to the ne plus ultra of human existence and all the Jesus mixed in on top of that – that there’s no way that ANY of those kids ever had a chance to learn anything like normal sexuality. Josh was an inevitable result of this sort of family dynamic. Fucking asshole never had a chance.

      Duggars better hope nobody talks to the brothers because I’ll bet they’ll find out more and worse. And not necessarily about Josh.

      • Villago Delenda Est

        Yeah, the entire “reproduction is the only thing” aspect of this just ignores so much of what has changed in the world over the last two to three centuries. There’s a biological reason for a high sex drive among humans, but that biological reason doesn’t take into account that we can alter our environment it a lot of ways. High rates of infant mortality leads to a high sex drive to insure survival of the species. We don’t have that problem as much anymore, but the hormones are still pumping like mad.

        • Mehmeisterjr

          To be fair, the anti-vaxxers are doing their best to bring infant mortality rates back to Biblically-acceptable levels. Environmental change in the form of global warming and a few useless wars should do the trick. I can just see the libidos kicking in.

      • dshwa

        As I said below, I have sympathy for 14 year old Josh, who didn’t get the help he needed because Jesus. But “gays are all molesting pervers” adult hypoctit Josh? Not douch.

      • Left Coast Tom

        I’m still having a hard time processing the fact that, on top of all of this, “Jim Bob” just happened to have a good police officer friend with a child porn collection, who just happened to help sweep this under the rug.

        • LeftCoastLeftie

          Yeah, so young Josh Bob got a good talkin’ to, and the policeman with the kiddie porn is serving something like 50 yrs in prison. Like he’ll last that long!

      • pearlsarefuzzy

        I have never seen the show, though I know who the Duggars are because of their many appearances on Today (for which I quickly muted the TV, being repulsed by them). But I can’t wait for the inevitable book and I hope it’s written by somebody who is sane.

  • Machichi Kalabumba

    This looks like the beginning of a new religious sect. Jim Bob has everything he needs to get it started. It will be called Duggarianism, and boys will be molesting their sisters as a rite of passage. The priests will all be called Josh, and Mike Huckabee will be their first saint. 100 years from now, the Holy Mother Michelle will be enshrined as a sacred log flume ride.

    • Dee Andee

      And they’ll just ride it and ride it till that shit be all worn out and in dangerous condition.

      • Land Shark

        That’s what Jim Bob said, too ….

    • Pretty sure the i.p. for that business model was trademarked thousands of years ago.
      ~

    • ryp

      I think there is only room for one successful American made religion founded by a serial child molester and it’s already been taken, so don’t expect the Republicans too be running a Duggarian presidential candidate in 200 years.

      • SadDemInTex

      You forgot Todd Kincannon and George Zimmerman, With those two needing their own press corps, you’ll need Charles C. Johnson.

      • SnarkOff

        Ghost of Breitbart libel!!!!

  • Toomush_Infer

    So…..what are the odds on “concernedmom” being Mama June?…okay, how about Mom Michelle?….

    • dshwa

      Mom of the molested babysitter is my bet.

  • D_C_Wilson

    Right now, Kate Goslin is on the phone with her agent, “I never molested any of my kids! Get me back on TV!”

    • PubOption

      Agent: The way things are going at the moment, that could be the problem.

  • Celtic_Gnome

    Evidently, TLC discovered exactly what happened the moment big advertisers started pulling the plug and took appropriate action.

    • dshwa

      They have ways of shutting that whole thing down.

    • Mehmeisterjr

      It’s a miracle!

  • PubOption

    Gross Duggars? I didn’t realize there were that many (yet).

    • dshwa

      Not for lack of trying.

    • Four score and seven Duggars ago…

    • SnarkOff

      24 Duggars to a case.

  • Villago Delenda Est

    I think we can safely say that the Duggar saga will top the charts come Sunday.

    • freakishlystrong

      Uh..Sunday where? In Ameriduh, we’ll be talking about how Obama started the Iraq war, Rubio’s genius, and Hillary’s emails. Dugger story hurts Republicans. Beltway media exists to exonerate Republicans.

      • JoeChristmas

        I’m with you freak. Plus sister diddling doesn’t sell well

      • Villago Delenda Est

        Why, here, at Wonkette!

        As for what the vermin of the Village produce, who gives a rat’s ass?

        • BackDoorMan

          … well, CNN is certainly talking about it, albeit in a not-damning way. The last segment I surfed past was an analysis of the pics of Josh with GOP presidential hopefuls, and how that might impact republican optics going forward. Or something on that level of cable journamalism.

  • Land Shark

    As a moral person, all I can say to these soul killing human detritus is “drink the kool aid.”

  • VandeGraf

    The question is who knew, when did they know about it, and was there a cover up? Dugghazi!

  • bullet2

    With Honey Boo Boo, Duck Dynasty and now the Duggars I wonder if TLC will find a replacement southern redneck family that doesn’t molest little girls

    • Villago Delenda Est

      The obvious question is, of course, is such a thing possible?

      • Yeah, some molest little boys.

        • actor212

          “That t’ain’t no molestin’! That there is raisin’ them proper!”

          • Politics_Nerd

            Spare the “rod” much? :::guffaw:::

    • TheBidenator

      I think child molestation might be part of the heritage and family values Southern wingnuts are always yammering on about….

  • Walter Wellstone

    Now let’s start digging for dirt on the Palins!

    • Villago Delenda Est

      “All of them, Katie!”

    • LeftCoastLeftie

      Don’t need to – just tell the truth about them.

    • Enfant Terrible

      Drunken brawls seem like wholesome family fun in comparison, don’t they?

  • I can’t wait for the TLC spinoff: Lil’ Duggars

  • Sephia8

    I’m more concerned about his young daughter and what he might have done as an adult now. We know what he did in his youth, but did he get better at hiding his sex sins and there is more we don’t know?!

    Shouldn’t this information launch a CPS investigation into the family, as daddy Duggar did not protect his children (except Josh – he hid that shit well). I’d love to see the browser history of daddy Duggar’s computer.

    • Jen_Baker_VA

      Yes, they should, but they won’t because of who they are, and who protects them, how much money they make, and oh yeah, white.
      Unless you are Hilary Clinton, if you are a rich white person, you have to be left alone to make it up to God doncha know? If you are Hillz though you best be publicly posting what color your bra is that day and if you had milk in your tea.

    • The Molten Soul

      No doubt. There are at least four victims who have had to watch their own parents try to cover up and minimize their pain and terror. Michelle and Jim Bob are horrible, horrible people.

    • andreamd

      He should be on the sex offender registry. If I was a neighbor or my kids formerly played with his kids- I would be worried

  • LeftCoastLeftie

    TLC = Touching Little Children.

    • Politics_Nerd

      Which now and forever more shall be known as: “Duggaring”.

  • Alex Grey

    I bet if I met a nice atheist woman, and we had 19 kids together, I wouldn’t get my own show. Obviously they need a, “Religious Freedom Restoration Act,” law passed there, so I won’t be… Ah, this line of reason is just so fucking stupid, I can’t even mock it any further.

  • Alex Grey

    Also this needs posting…

    • CriticalDragon1177

      Too Bad The Colbert Report isn’t on the air anymore. He was hilarious. Oh well there’s still the Daily Show and the new Nightly Show which are also really funny.

      • BackDoorMan

        … I’m really looking forward to seeing what Stephen has in store for us when he delivers his version of The Late Show. September 8th is already marked in the calendar here.

        • CriticalDragon1177

          That could be fun!

          • Blank Ron

            Too bad poor Larry Wilmore will be competing for that same audience.

  • freakishlystrong

    I’ve never really seen these people. Fuck, I think the authorities should take a second look at JimBob there. Holy shit indeed.

  • actor212

    Soooooo, I guess it’s safe to say that after Honey BooBoo and the Duggars, TLC is the learning channel?

    Why oh why did they decide to go in this direction? It was a train wreck before it even left the station!

    • Alex Grey

      Maybe they will learn from their mistakes…

      • actor212

        This was the channel of Palin, so CUNT is more like it.

    • dshwa

      They got privatized. When NASA set them up, it was about learning actual science stuff. As soon as the government sold them to a private company, it was all downhill.

      • Jerry Noneofyourbizz

        Ahhhh, capitalism at work again!

      • spacecat in space

        Because privatization has never gone wrong, ever.

    • folderol

      Reality shows are cheap to produce.

  • Yesterday there were several Wonkettettes on the official TLC Duggar site. At first there was much snarking, but very quickly it the Dirty Libruls were trying to seriously comprehend the mind set of the hysterical supporters. This is a scary world.
    On that note: has anyone come up with a sutably dirty filthy sex act which can be called a ‘Duggar’?
    “Duggar?!? I barely knew ‘er!!!”

    • Politics_Nerd

      Duggar (v): to hand rape one’s sister, esp. if both parties are underage.

      • Please add to Urban Dictionary.

        • Thatsit Fortheotherwon

          Please add also the noun, Duggary.

          • Msgr_Moment

            Filthy Duggerer

      • Jerry Noneofyourbizz

        That’s almost as bad as having sexual intercourse with you own mother. Wish we had some phrase for that!

        • Politics_Nerd

          A certain old greek mother fucker comes to mind…

      • Jerry Noneofyourbizz

        VandeGraf, below, has brilliantly named the scandal itself as, “Dugghazi”!

    • beatbort

      Dugging. It means thinking dirty thoughts about a girl and she gets pregnant

    • Leema Raven

      Skull Duggary?

      Sry, I’ll go…

  • beatbort

    tip of the iceberg. 19 kids, no supervision, hormones pumping? That house probably had more group sex than the Manson Family.

    It is to be the shits when on one your hand raised pure bred chllins, one you have taken the time to fill their empty little heads with Jebus and tapioca does something the kills the goose that laid the golden egg and suddenly chops off a big piece of the family income.

    If you can’t count on them how can you expect to count on someone raised in the projects in St. Louis. You might want to check up regularly on the married daughters to be sure the understand they should not be diddling the pool man. Raised with no moral compass as their brother, goodness knows what they might do.

  • Ranina

    The is some speculation below about who will The Learning Channel find to exploit next….ooops, I mean for their audience to “Learn” about.
    How low will they go? My bet is on Ted Nugent. We already know about his predilection for teenage girls and his disgusting draft-dodging, so there might (definitely a “might”) not be many more secrets left to expose. He loves to spout off on any media that will let him. He’s probably xtiany enough (or if not, his getting reborn could be the opening scene). Just remember you heard it from the frog first! Ribbit.

  • Fly

    The learning channel is like fox news, you are dumber for having watched it.

  • The Molten Soul

    Just visited the TLC site. They feel bad about it all, but not that bad. They’re still be selling Duggar gear. And most of it is not even on clearance…

    • Helena Handbag

      Any “Ma Duggar Pessary” for sale? You know, to keep the pelvic organs from falling out.

      • The Molten Soul

        They do have a nice looking chastity belt, guaranteed not to extend beyond the knees. It says, “I heart the Duggars.”

  • nvrbl

    The Duggars ” church” has a history of blaming the victims of sexual abuse for their own abuse.

  • Tom Allen

    Freaks shows have always been around mostly at county fairs for the hayseeds but TLC mainstreams it based on the PT Barnum slogan “there is a sucker born every minute”.

  • MongoJustPawn

    “. . .because people are dumb and full of themselves on the internet.” Well, only on places that allow comments. Bless you, Wonkette, for not allowing them!

    Police records on the Duggar case were just destroyed per a judge’s order and, I’m guessing, God’s Will(TM).
