A video has gone viral making fun of the wacky Duggars and the entire mishandling of their molester son, Josh.
The actors have the southern drawl down which kind of makes us think we are listening to the real deal, especially if we close our eyes. But they incorporate more important aspects of this family, such as their outlandish beliefs. They make fun of their views on birth control, the juvenile naming of body parts, and gender stereotypes. But poignantly, they highliight what many right wingers may feel about criminal incidents like those perpetrated by Josh Duggar.
For example, they keep calling the sexual assaults committed by their son “mistakes.” This illustrates a common problem with this family, their supporters, and much of America in general. Fondling children is NOT a mistake. It is a deliberate act. I am so sick of seeing conservative morons (and others) go on and on about how he simply committed a mistake. He is a serial abuser and should be labeled such.
While this video is strange, in that it seems to make a joke out of a serious situation, in undoubtedly shows the preposterous and dangerous nature of this family and people who think like them. The video makes light of how long it took anyone to come forward, something that is completely common in real life. Much of what has disturbed the [sane] public, aside from the molestation itself, is how the Duggars covered it up and still do not seem to take it seriously. There is also a part where everything stops, and the Duggars adamantly talk about how horrible “homosexuals” are and how they are a threat to children. This obvious irony seems preposterous, but these stories and beliefs aren’t that rare.
So while this video is supposed to be making a mockery of this family, it is obvious that the family is a joke in general and hyperbole isn’t needed to show this. But take a look anyway.
