So, a couple of Josh Duggars’ victims — two of the sisters he ‘duggared’ while they slept — Jill Duggar Dillard and Jessa Duggar Seewald broke their silence about their older brother and his naughty ways with them when they were sleeping children and it’s as loony as one might imagine.
"I think in the case of what Josh did, it was very wrong. I'm not going to justify anything he did or say it was okay or permissible. But I do want to speak up in his defense against people who are calling him a child molester or pedophile or rapists. That is so overboard and a lie really. People get mad at me for saying that, but I can say this. I was one of the victims. I can speak out and set the record straight here."
First up, Jessa, he is a child molester, so don’t try to rewrite history, m’kay? You were a victim as a child and apparently you are still a victim today because you seek to make his crimes seem really inconsequential and accidental; they aren’t. Creeping into the rooms of sleeping girls seven times and fondling them, both over and under their clothes, is not just a mistake.
It’s a pattern of abuse, that Jill says really makes no difference because she never knew it was happening, so I guess if a victim of molestation doesn’t wake up during the abuse, or, maybe she did wake up, but then blocked it out, then all should just be swept under the rug. But Jill goes further, saying that what happened to her was "very mild compared to what happened to some."
Well, aren’t we all so happy to know that you’re thrilled Josh didn’t go further and that groping you while you slept, both over and under your clothes, on multiple occasions, is kinda fine for you.
Let’s be clear, this lovely bit of acceptance at being sexually abused by their brother comes at a time when a spin-off of that Duggar show — featuring the daughters, including Jill and Jessa — is up in the air, so this all reeks of trying to salvage their Golden Egg of TV Fame; maybe the girls think if they just play down the fact their brother is a sexual predator they can still have a TV show and not have to get a real job.
Molested by their brother. Brainwashed by their parents. Trying to sell themselves to TV. Pretending to be devout Christians, and spewing their hypocrisy, because, had this been an outsider who climbed in a window and molested those girls, you can bet it would have been filmed and aired as a Very Special Episode.
Don’t put any of them back on TV. Ever.
