Josh Duggar spoke to a gala for the Christian Children's Home of Ohio (CCHO) on April 11 of this year, mere weeks before the nation learned about his firsthand experience with abusing kids:

Josh Duggar visited the Christian Children’s Home of Ohio in 2009. He said that visiting the children’s home was an eye-opening experience for him that made him realize what he was privileged to that the foster children were not.

“It reminds me of how good so many of us have it,” Duggar said. [...]

As the guest speaker, Duggar stressed the importance of investing in working on behalf of abused, neglected, and suffering children. Josh Duggar quoted scripture while referencing his father and reality TV co-star, saying that Jim Bob Duggar spent his house savings on an unsuccessful political campaign. Josh pointed out that while the house savings was gone, the attention from his father’s campaign was ultimately responsible for the financial boost from the reality show. Josh Duggar told the crowd at the Christian Children’s Home of Ohio’s gala that in Romans 8:28, God says, “All things work together for good,” but clarified that the poor children the charity is said to help know well that not all things are good.

Know what's not good? Molesting your sisters is not good. Know what else is not good? Having parents who tried to cover that up, while Daddy was running for political office, and then continuing the cover up while the family grifted its way to riches and fame, and then using THAT platform to demonize LGBT people as child predators. Those things are not good.

Tell us about what's evil, Josh Duggar:

Before the news of the molestation from his youth came out, Josh Duggar told the crowd at the Christian Children’s Home of Ohio’s Hope Gala that evil done to children is one of its worst forms.

CCHO has, of course, responded, saying that it is "disappointed," and reassuring us that "While we do not condone the actions reported so far, we believe there is healing available and we are praying for all those involved."

Yeah, really. Look, we know, from delving further and further into the Duggar family worldview, that the environment in which Josh Duggar grew up -- that patriarchal, sex-shaming, controlling, TRULY EVIL environment -- is partly to blame for what transpired. While Josh was clearly old enough to know right from wrong and be held accountable for his actions, we understand that, without the bugfuck insane Quiverfull homeschooling cult he grew up in, this all very well might not have happened. Maybe he's a true predator. Maybe he isn't. That's not for us to decide. But Jesus FUCK, the utter balls it takes to stand up as an advocate for abused, neglected kids, when abuse and neglect of kids is inherent to your entire worldview, and when you KNOW you have perpetuated some of that abuse and neglect, in your own family.

Sometimes people need to know when to sit their holier-than-thou asses DOWN.

'Bella" by Wonkette Operative 'IdiokraticSubpoenaKommissar'

Sunday already, which means a substantial portion of US America is preparing to be astonished/heartbroken/outraged by the series finale of that show with the dragons, while another portion is just going to stay off Twitter for three days because nothing will make any sense. Yr Dok Zoom tends to come very late to trendy things, so get ready for our own thoughts on the gamy thrones show sometime in about 2023, or never. But we'd be glad to tell you just how much we enjoy the brilliance and humanity of the Cartoon Network series "Steven Universe," which debuted in 2013 and we started bingeing on the Hulu last month, late again.

Hell, we still want to talk about that one Mrs Landingham episode of "The West Wing," which we first watched years after it aired (We finally bought our new used car yesterday, and know one thing: don't drive over to the White House to show it off to President Bartlet). We might even get around to reading Infinite Jest someday. We hear it has something to do with a superhero team and a guy named Thanos. So hey, let's talk about culture and missing out and patching together some knowledge of what's happening anyway.

Get Me Roger Stone

Roger Stone, his wife would like you to know, is broke. And he is not dealing with it well. Once in khaki suits, gee, he looked swell, full of that yankee-doodle-dee-dum, but now no one calls him Al anymore and he has to stand on a street corner singing "Brother Can You Spare A Dime?"

Yesterday, the conservative but also kind of Never Trumper site The Bulwark revealed the details of a grifty "fundraising" plea sent out by Stone's wife Nydia, begging supporters to give money to the Stones in order to help them keep up the lifestyle to which they have become accustomed.

It was titled "I am embarrassed to write this."

"Dear Friend," begins the missive. "My husband and I have an urgent new problem and we need your help. I told my husband I was going to write you, one of his most valued supporters. I am embarrassed to write this, but I must."

"Mrs. Roger Stone" tells a tale of woe: FBI agents swooping in on them at the crack of dawn to arrest her husband, a subsequent "fake news" feeding frenzy causing friends and fans to abandon the Stones.

"He laid off all our consultants, contractors and employees, and we have 'pulled in our belts' like so many Americans in 'tight times,'" she wrote, sounding for all the world like a plucky working-class patriot, not the wife of a man who made and lost his fortune lying in the service of power.

She should have been more embarrassed.
