Demand That TLC Cancel 19 Kids And Counting After Josh Duggar Admits To Molesting Girls



After Josh Duggar and family have tried to cover up the fact that he molested five underage girls, it is time for outraged Americans to demand that 19 Kids And Counting be canceled immediately by TLC.

The scandal started when In Touch published a story about Josh Duggar and sexual abuse, “Josh Duggar of the TLC hit reality show 19 Kids and Counting was named in a police report as the “alleged offender” in an underage sexual abuse probe, In Touch magazine is reporting exclusively.”


TMZ followed up, “According to the police report, Josh fondled the genitals and breasts of the girls, some of whom were sleeping, but sometimes they were interacting with him … in one case reading a book. There was another reported incident 9 months later. According to the police report, the police were not immediately contacted. Instead, Jim Bob, the dad, met with church elders and agreed Josh should be put in a treatment program. The police report says Josh’s mom, Michelle, said it wasn’t really a treatment center … they simply sent Josh to a guy who was remodeling a building to do manual labor.”

Josh Duggar responded with the typical right-wing “youthful indiscretions” defense, “Twelve years ago, as a young teenager, I acted inexcusably for which I am extremely sorry and deeply regret. I hurt others, including my family and close friends. I confessed this to my parents who took several steps to help me address the situation. We spoke with the authorities where I confessed my wrongdoing, and my parents arranged for me and those affected by my actions to receive counseling. I understood that if I continued down this wrong road that I would end up ruining my life.”

It is clear that the Duggars are not going to do the right thing, and TLC will never do what’s right unless they are forced to, which is why we are asking PoliticusUSA readers to sign our petition demanding that TLC cancel 19 Kids and Counting and pull all programs featuring the Duggars off of their network immediately.

A cast member on a TLC program has admitted to sexually abusing children. TLC wasted no time in canceling Here Comes Honey Boo Boo, but it has been hours since the Duggar scandal broke, and TLC has issued no comment.

The Duggars covered up their son’s sexual abuse of their daughters. TLC had to have known about this, and yet, they have done nothing.

The network seems to be trying to wait out the story in the hopes that it will blow over. It is up to you to make sure that it doesn’t.

Sign the petition HERE.

  1. Child molesters never stop. Not a childhood “mistake” on his part. Scumbag Josh has one daughter with another girl in the womb. His wife doesn’t understand what the fuss is all about so she’ll just keep crankin’ out more victims for him.

  2. Go figure, pervert josh makes robo calls for anti gay hate group American family council. He says gays are child molesters.

  3. All the Duggars have mentioned they did for Josh after they found out. Did they do anything for the sisters he molested? I haven’t seen anything about that.

  4. Is this why the oldest girl, Jana, has no interaction with potential suitors??? Look out Tim Tebow, she has Josh on her mind. Ick.

  5. Disgusting hypocrites

    So concerned the girls would kiss before they married….now we find out the fat brother was messing with them

    TLC is a joke…barnyard learning….take these lying breeders off and please do not bring back moo cow Mooma June

    Freak show tv

  6. I can remember when TLC, Discovery, A&E, Sci-fi channels were good. Now I won’t even put them in my line up. I would be ashamed to be caught watching those channels. And the cable companies won’t admit why they are bleeding customers. The cable providers could have forced better shows but chose and keep choosing to encourage the garbage and go up on the rates.
    I was very happy when Longmire was cancelled, now that it has been picked up by Netflix. Wonderful news. It is a favourite. I am a long time customer of Netflix without a single complaint. Over 20 years of TW with nothing but complaints. Now they aren’t the only game in town.

  7. “My parents arranged for me and those affected by my actions to receive counseling.” Except his own mother said he did not go to counseling. He got “labor therapy” from some home remodeler church connection. Ugh. ANOTHER example of extreme hypocrisy with these types. What would they say if some Democrat atheist did this kind of sh*t? TLC actually used to stand for The Learning Channel but it hasn’t been that in years. Cancel now.

  8. The ugly reality — these self-righteous Christian conservatives readily forgive and show compassion toward their family members who are (heterosexual) child molesters, yet they completely reject and condemn blood relations who dare to come out of the closet.

  9. The pervert who said gays will molest children? In his statement said he made a mistake? Molesting your siblings and a neighbour not once but several times is not a mistake, it’s a crime!!! TLC need to cancel now !!!!

    How can they do this show knowing what was going on under their own roof? Do they think that religion can absolve you by just saying that they are sorry?
    And what about the older boys with the little sisters left behind?
    The parents could not handle the one son, how can they prevent this from happening again? They need to take off the blinders.

  11. And the portray themselves like the perfect Christian family. I always felt there were skeletons in one of their closets. Nobody is perfect, despite what the want you to believe.

  12. I don’t agree with the way the Duggers expect their kids to date to start with.It is unnatural right? I wonder if Anna knew about this before they married.I bet not.I am a victim of this very thing being hid from me before mmarriage.It continued and it is devastating to say the least.On the flip side I like the show and watch it.Truth is this and worse goes in Hollywood .Nothing surprises me.They are no different than the other trash happening idifferentThe only way to support 19 kids is to sell your life to TV.I will never get why anyone has so many kids however well to do you are.I hope Josh hhasreceived the help he needs I doubt it..This is the beginning of an eye opener for them..

  13. Signed. It appears that my earlier commentary was removed.

    Nonetheless, the legitimacy of my commentary remains.

  14. i can only hope that anna gets josh to get help and the children should be taken out of jim bob and michelles home and they should be investigated,children learn what they live,jim bob and michelle taught josh with their sexual actions,so he was young and curious,so whos to say there is not more going on in the cult house,and anna watch your daughters

  15. I think Josh should be prosecuted just like anyone out in the public would be. What’s so special about being part of the “19 + counting” tribe? If Josh were just some young man on your block he would be in handcuffs by now.

  16. He should have been but his parents covered it up so they could get rich off the rubes so the statue of limitations has run out

  17. KatzKids this is a very sick women. One who only hears what her Husband tells her fear or care about.. Not concerned with what he does???Then I must the Master. Yes Master, No Master!!any thing else you wish Master!

  18. DJ, do you know if there is any way his parents can be charged with covering up a crime or obstruction or anything of the like? I’m thinking no since there was no on obstruction because there was no active investigation. Which is one hell of a catch 22: “You can’t be prosecuted for obstructing an investigation that should have existed but didn’t because you hid the crime until the statute of limitations ran out which is why you’re guilty of obstruction”. *sighs*

  19. Did the actual report say anywhere that the girls involved were his sisters? Because nothing actually says that, but the article goes ahead and assumes it, and now other people are as well.

    Not that it is any better if the girls were not his sisters, just that it doesn’t hurt to get the story correct.

  20. Funny had he actually been charged NO ONE would even know it happened. As a minor, his record would have been sealed. Since he went to the police, I would guess they didn’t have enough to charge him.

  21. I am sure the Duggars were willing to forgive this as long as it was girls, and not boys, that he was molesting.

  22. I would think his children would be in special danger now. JD is a pariah; no one will touch him and he will remain unemployable. I doubt anyone would buy used cars from him anymore. Under stress, reoffense tends to occur.

  23. “Counseling,” for all concerned, is pretty vague. He doesn’t mention professional counseling, so I would guess this means church or Gothard style counseling – telling them to forgive, etc. You have to place some of the blame on the environment that allowed this to happen, with lack of normal relationships and activities.

  24. If you read the police report, the names are censored, but you can figure it out, as it mentions the names of parents, dogs, address, “We told daddy,” etc. Four were siblings and one was a visitor in the home.

  25. I have always felt these parents put unrealistic expectations on the older children to help be caregivers to a younger sibling while still children themselves. So they could free up time to keep having a baby a year. Then to take the stand to basically say the “courting” thing no kiss, ect ect was the only right way. While knowing this had happened under their watch the entire time! They are not who we should seek to model after therefore I feel the show has reached its end and should be canceled.

    However,we must keep a perspective here. Not all Christians are hypocrites and molesters nor are all Republicans representative of this group including the Duggars and Bush family.

  26. Let me see if I have this right; gay people are sinners and should have no rights and go to hell, but, child molesters are just fine and are forgiven. What an effed up bunch of assholes.

  27. Now don’t get me wrong, Child molestation is a horrible and should be very harshly dealt with. But I ask the question, what about all our political leaders that have been caught in the same act and nothing happen? Where is the outrage then? I agree that we should be upset when anyone is found guilty of these deplorable acts…but take a hard look at our nation…our society is falling apart, and our leaders are in the same thing (Child trafficking, child exploitation, etc.) If we are going to demand the removal of a tv show that portrays wholesomeness but has underlying deplorable behavior (which we should), Then we must also demand the same justice of our “leaders”. Not to mention all the other unconstitutional things they are doing in our face blatantly, but I digress.

  28. The show should never have been aired in the first place. Why are they being rewarded for having all of those kids. The world is over populated even without people like them cranking them out over and over.

  29. I really think all you people need to keep your opinions to your self. What if they see this? How would it make you feel if it was you. Not tryin’ to be rude in all but this just makes me mad.

  30. In their eyes, it only would have perverted if he was molesting his little brothers, etc. He’s straight, so molesting his sisters is forgiveable. . .

  31. How about sterilizing these idiots? There is no shortage of people on the planet. Why anyone glorifies this kind of irresponsible reproduction is beyond me!

  32. Please be specific as to which “leaders” you are talking about. And “everyone does it” is not a legal defense to a crime that has victims.

  33. Where is the justice for the girls who were molested? Don’t they have a voice in any of this? They had to shut up and live in the same house as their molester. They should be able to charge their parents with child endangerment at the very least. Why is there a statute of limitations on their rights to step forward as adults to demand action against the molester or their very hypocritical parents? Obviously, the parents did everything to keep this quiet, apparently even including instructions to the molested girls to keep quiet!

  34. Josh has apologized and repented. Anna and her parents (her father is a Baptist minister) knew about this incident two years before he proposed to her. Let’s forgive him and forget about it. In the Bible we are taught to forgive and forget. Matthew 7:1-14 and Luke 17:3-4. Just like all of us, the Duggar family is not perfect and they don’t pretend to be. If you can’t say anything nice, don’t say anything at all, even on the internet.

  35. Just last year, Michelle Duggar lent her voice to a robocall asking residents of Fayetteville, Arkansas to protest an upcoming anti-discrimination bill aimed at protecting transgender citizens. “I doubt that Fayetteville parents would stand for a law that would endanger their daughters or allow them to be traumatized by a man joining them in their private space,” Michelle says in the recording. “We should never place the preference of an adult over the safety and innocence of a child.”


  36. Part of repentance involves redemption.
    What deeds of redemption has he done that merits forgiveness?

    He and his continue to cast judgment upon the rest of us.

  37. I just think that in light of the scandal the show should be cancelled.It is the right thing to do we know there
    could be other skeletons in the Duggar closet.

  38. I doubt the Duggers surf the internet. The parents are busy working on #20, and the older kids have all the younger ones to take care of. Maybe if they had not had so many, many children they would have known what their son was up to in their own house? If these are Christian values, then I will NEVER join their CULT.

  39. Is it possible that Josh could have been abused as a kid. It very odd that they waited a whole year to do any thing about the matter. I think the Parents are the ones people should be questioning. They are the Adults at the time not Josh. They needed to step up and do the right thing for their son and daughters. I think TLC should take the show off because a crime was committed and the parents did not handle it right.

  40. I am so very tired of the news media slamming these people. If you don’t like it don’t watch, but let those of us that like it watch it in peace and quiet. People just don’t like them because they are Christians. So am I, and I like watching the show. Leave them alone.

  41. I have hated these breeders (Michelle and Jim Bob) ever since they appeared on TV. Every child they have is brain washed into believing evil and should be removed from their care. What TLC should do is help save the ones that want to leave like Jinger and Jana.

    Once a molester, always a molester. Josh’s pig face wife met him at some breeder approved event, new that he was a molester and yet she has no problem spawning 4 children that he is most likely molesting also. That TLC promotes and airs this show is too disgusting for words.

  42. How disgusting. Do you promote child molestation also. You are a pig and more than likely a molester yourself.

  43. Duggars are using their kids for money, now their son is screwing his own sisters. Wow, what a retarded family. Stop the show as it is encouraging criminal behavior.

  44. That is Whataboutism. Our Political leaders do get arrested when crimes can be proven. You can also vote them out of office. A Pervert made famous on TV then covered for his crimes by his parents against their other children is repugnant. There is a difference even if you choose to not see it.

  45. Judgmental Hypocrites should be given a pass, WHY????? How has he repented? Did he do his time for his crime? They are very outspoken on Gay issues. Pretending that gay means child molester, all the while being one, is disgusting. His parents covering up for him is criminal as well. We are a Nation of man’s laws, not God’s. Quit trying to pretend fake religious belief trumps the crime.

  46. Oh well if you like it, the rest of us should just shut the hell up. Stop pulling your fake hypocritical Christian bull crap on the rest of us. Christ would not molest children, or cover it up so you can have a show to watch. Grow up and live in this world please. The rest of us want to protect children. You want to protect a molester because he is like you, or so you say. FAKE CHRISTIAN HYPOCRITE!!!!!

  47. I am a conservative Christian, so my disgust for these horrific acts by Josh Duggar and his parents have nothing to do with disapproval of their religion. The situation is not funny, entertaining, or something that should be taken lightly! I hope TLC pulls the show permanently! I also believe the “Statute Of Limitations” should be for a lifetime, even if the molester is under age!

  48. I tried to sign the petition to cancel the show but it is only for the states. Even though other countries watch it on TLC and are against it they can’t vote.

  49. Instead of being known for mass producing babies…maybe an education might be in order since they really need to go out and work like the rest of us at a job…not making more kids. They have had a long run of showcasing their lives on TV for money. That’s all they know. And now the kids are having kids on TV. Just stop…They arent that interesting. I feel really bad for the victims of that Josh imposed himself on. Any one who thinks this isnt going to make an impact on the rest of these girls live’s is a fool. It does. The so-called help that Jim Bob and Michelle got for their son was nothing. He was a former sheriff that later went to prison for child pronography…??? now there’s a great source. This was all kept hush hush so they didnt lose their money chain. TCL needs to dump the Duggars and they all need to get real jobs.

  50. I agree Josh as a young boy did a terrible thing. The same thing happened to me by my big brother when I was 10. But I don’t think a 12 yr old or even a 14 yr. old seeing what the big peoples world is all about makes him a child molester. He did need counseling and so did the girls but remember some of them may have wanted it too.its really interesting that this goes on in Hollywood and with PRIESTS EVERY DAY & NO BIG DEAL.WHAT GETS PEOPLE SOOO MAD WHEN A CHRISTIAN sins? Christians aren’t perfect just forgiven. are you?have you never done any thing wrong & wished to God you hadn’t? Or is it you just keep it a secret and don’t have the guts to admit it. you say what I did wasn’t that bad. I thought Gods the Judge here not you, Josh has shown he is a changed MAN NOT A BOY! WEITHER YOU BELIEVE IT OR NOT. remember they NEVER claimed to be perfect’s you that want to Judge wonder why? maybe cause your trying to bring GOD & Josh down to your level, because you know you’re no…

  51. Anna posted that she did know before they were engaged. Also, her parents were told as well. Seems no one cared. sigh
