Mike Huckabee’s defense of the Duggars hit an absurd level of hypocrisy when he claimed that Josh Duggar’s confession doesn’t really count during an appearance on Fox News.

Transcript via Fox News:

HUCKABEE: Megyn, he was an unadjudicated minor at the time that this happened. You’re an attorney. You understand that a person is innocent until proven guilty.

KELLY: But he confessed.

HUCKABEE: He was never adjudicated. He did not confess in a court of law. The law does not hold him accountable, even if he confesses. The bigger issue is not Josh, the bigger issue, the girls. How were the girls served? How were the victims served by the exploitation, by the release, the unlawful release, I’m going to go back and emphasize the illegal unlawful release of that information. It was not about the victims. It was about trying to go after the Duggars. They have been known as a family that is a Christian family. If a Liberal has anything like this kind of situation, it’s no big deal. And I think we all have heard the comparison between this and Lena Dunham who wrote about it in her book.

According to Huckabee, the Duggars are being persecuted by liberals. Apparently, a conservative evangelical Christian’s confession of several acts of child molestation only counts if it is made in a court of law. It is a tribute to the cumulative delusions of Fox News, the Duggars, and Mike Huckabee that they would continue to push the idea that Josh Duggar’s police report was illegally released.

Springdale City Attorney Earnest Cate has already debunked the idea that the release of the police report was illegal, “”On 5/20/15, in full compliance with Arkansas Law, the Springdale Police Department responded to a records request under the Arkansas Freedom of Information Act. The requested record was not sealed or expunged, and at the time the report was filed, the person listed in the report was an adult. Any names of minors included in the report, as well as pronouns, were redacted from the report by the Springdale Police Department in compliance with Arkansas law prior to release.”

Huckabee is trying to boost his flatlining presidential campaign by playing that favorite card of Republicans everywhere; the media is out to get us.

Child molester Josh Duggar and his crime covering up parents have been turned into martyrs by Fox News and Mike Huckabee. The effort to defend the Duggars has hit an illogical level of absurd. If the Duggars are an example of his theory of criminal prosecution, Mike Huckabee is unfit to be president.

  1. Huckster “How were the girls served” With their older brother’s fingers up their dresses

    I am done . Anyone who defends child molestation is sick. For this POS who came in second to John McInsane in 2008 says a lot about the people who supported him.

  2. Mike Hucksterbee should be dis-barred and every case of similar circumstances be investigated. If it were a Dem. or an atheist that committed these REAL CRIMES then Mike and the conservative Christian reich would be screaming for their heads. But since Democrats, Liberals and We Atheists would never commit those heinous crimes in the first place. WE on the left have MORALS and ETHICS!!

  3. It is all in the baible…

    It clearly states that in the beginning there was one man & one woman, and their children did what comes naturally…

    It has been incest since the beginning of time! otherwise, there would be no people in the planet.

    Incest is what the good book prescribes.

    …”Give me the old time religion,
    give me the old time religion
    it is good enough for me!
    it is revival time

  4. You know what, I am beginning to think with all of huckerboob defense of child molestation maybe he diddled little children in the past.

    I would like to ask him when was the last time you molested a child?

  5. It’s one thing for Mike Chucklehead to make such a claim- I’d not be surprised if some numb-nutz Duggar apologist runs with the notion.

  6. Next in line for the Duggar Apologists: Those girls that Josh Duggar didn’t molest- were dressed provocatively.

  7. *Face palm*

    I say it again: How in the world can anyone, let alone a former Governor, defend a known child molester?

  8. #uckabee has the Duggar’s back. They used his lawyer, and the judge that ordered the records now destroyed was appointed by him, which was said to be highly unusual. I guess according to their apologetics any teenager who asks for forgiveness nothing more should be done. That will save a lot of court costs and jail housing. Funny they don’t have a problem releasing juvenile records of black teens that are killed to make it sound like they deserved it.

  9. A question partially answered in speculation by C.S. Lewis. (Chronicles of Narnia).

    At what stage did incest not become a problem for them or Noah?

  10. “The law does not hold him accountable, even if he confesses” because mom and dad and the church leaders hid it long enough but we as a society can hold him accountable when he confesses.
    He has and we should.

  11. It makes one with common sense wonder… Why else would Huckabee be so linked to this Duggar nonsense? Oh that’s right, most republicans don’t have any! Anyone in PR would tell him to run for the hills. His heartfelt connection and sympathy is as just about as creepy as the Duggars pure hearts.

  12. Taking advantage of and screwing the less fortunate, is the Repulican way. It comes naturally to Josh Duggar and Mike Huckabee. Why should Josh’s sisters have been off limits? Aren’t they supposed to be poor, uneducated, and submissive to the 1%?

  13. Huckabee’s going nowhere about as fast as Josh Duggar, who’s got his tail between his legs and heading home to Daddy.
    Huckabee would be fortunate to get his gig back on no-watch Fox. His campaign is a total waste of money.
    Maybe Huckabee can skip politics and go on a far right tour, with Josh Duggar as a backup singer. Playing at the White House is a greater possibility than ever living there.

  14. Do you happen to know if there’s any truth to the rumor that, following the Josh Duggar molestation scandal, TLC (The Learning Channel) is changing their name to …

    Touching Little Children

    PS to Huckleberry:

    Josh Duggar was “adjudicated” in GOD’s court of law …
    And found GUILTY AS HELL!

  15. To pretend to be concerned about the girls’ molestation publicity and how it affected them, yet he’s not concerned about how the actual molestation affected them? The man is demented.

  16. So Lena Dunham, whom the Right are so ‘proudly’ parading around in their False Equivalancy Day Parade, doesn’t count as a child molester either then and they are going to stop mentioning her name?

  17. Well djchefron the story changes from bible thumper to bible thumper to fit whatever they are told to believe or whatever version of the big lie is pushed by the church. Occams Razor PROVES Evolution is the proper answer.

  18. Oh ya, you are concerned about the victims Mike. “…the illegal unlawful release of that information…” The names of the victims were blacked out in the court papers which were released. It was your buddy lawyer Megyn Kelly who made public the names of two of the victims.

    Keep digging Mike. You will eventually dig yourself in so deep even the Rethuglicans will not support you for President.
