Reality TV star Josh Duggar warns conservative Christians of Obama’s gay-friendly agenda

Published

on

During a speech at the 2014 Family Leadership Summit in Ames, Iowa, former reality television star and current executive director of the Family Research Council’s legislative affiliate Josh Duggar said that attendees need to be as courageous in the face of President Barack Obama’s agenda as the Benham brothers were when HGTV cancelled their reality show.

Duggar opened his speech on Saturday by making light of missionary work, saying “I had a friend who went and lived among headhunters and cannibals, and so I prayed to the Lord, ‘Please don’t send me among headhunters and cannibals.’ So He sent me to Washington.”

“The Lord has opportunities for those of us of our generation,” the 26-year-old Duggar said, before listing off a series of conservative positions to thunderous applause.

“What we’re seeing here today,” he continued, “as we’re looking at the discussion for 2016, our work is clear — our mission is before us. We have an administration that has taken a direct assault on us. This is not just about a disagreement. This is not just saying, ‘This is our opinion, here’s your opinion, let’s have a discussion.'”

“This is about an agenda against people of Christian faith, to not allow us the room to speak or even believe what we know to be right,” Duggar said. “When you talk about the issue of life, marriage, or religious liberty, I submit to you that every issue is moral.”

“It’s even wrong to tax people at a massive percentage of what they earn,” he said. “It’s wrong to force businesses to buy a good or a service that they don’t want or need. We have a Christian and moral obligation to be involved in this process.”

He then introduced the Benham brothers, Jason and David, whose show with HGTV was cancelled after controversial comments about same-sex marriage and Nazi Germany came to light. Duggar characterized the reason for the show’s cancellation as “their Christian beliefs,” then admired their “courage” in the face of the cancellation.

“We must be that courageous,” he concluded, “because courage breeds courage.”

Duggar, who was featured on TLC’s 19 Kids and Counting, was hired by the Family Research Council’s FRC Action outreach group last year.

Trump: I couldn’t have assaulted E. Jean Carroll because ‘she’s not my type’

Published

on

On Monday, in an exclusive interview with The Hill in the Oval Office, President Donald Trump reiterated his denial of the rape allegation by advice columnist E Jean Carroll, suggesting that he couldn't have done it because he wouldn't have been sexually attracted to her.

"I'll say it with great respect," said Trump. "Number one, she's not my type. Number two, it never happened. It never happened, OK?"

Carroll has alleged that Trump forced himself on her in a department store in the 90s, saying that he "just went at it  ... he pulled down my tights and it was a fight."

The show was canceled in 2015 when Josh Duggar was accused of child molestation. The show then spun off "Counting On," about sisters Jill and Jessa Duggar and their marriages and children.

Published

on

On Monday, the Washington Post reported on an interview between former House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) and PBS NewsHour's Judy Woodruff at the Aspen Ideas Festival.

Ryan continued to insist that he supports President Donald Trump, saying that 'didn't have the best relationship' with him but that 'he's taking on political correctness; he's taking fights that a lot of people want to see fought. The forgotten man that he speaks to is a person that finally feels like they're being taken seriously, they’re being paid attention to.'" He also pointedly refused to say whether Trump was a good role model for American children.

 ENOUGH IS ENOUGH 

Trump endorses killing journalists, like Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi. Online ad networks are now targeting sites that cover acts of violence against dissidents, LGBTQ people and people of color.
