interesting piece saying that huckabee is right to push forgiveness for young offenders but questioning how sincere he really is

http://m.huffpost.com/us/entry/7429102

Of course Huffpo is enjoying piling on the bandwagon as quickly as possibly, but in this case some perfunctory googling would have served better. Huckabee in fact had one of the most forgiving track records in the country in terms of pardons and commuting sentences. It came back to haunt him when one of those people whose sentences he commuted went on to murder four cops.

Huckabee had a concealed-weapon permit at the time of the incident and said he forgot about the weapon in his luggage. A Little Rock Police lieutenant was quoted as saying, "It is not unusual for people to forget they have a gun in their carry-on luggage."

See, while I feel bad for the kids in the situation, all the adult women choose it. I totally have no pity on a woman who is all "Oh you molest little girls? Here, let me marry you and pop some out for ya!" At that point they're as bad as the molestors.

I don't want to single you out for this, coz it touches on a lot of stuff that I also think.

But isn't this a little bit of 'victim blaming'? I mean I know next to nothing about the Duggars, and the women who marry in to the Duggars, but I imagine that whilst they might do it of their own free will, they almost certainly do not have informed consent.

I imagine they come from out of the same brainwashed, fundie, inbred community, and are innundated with the kind of "you are a woman so you are nothing more than a flesh sack to squirt babies from. And that flesh sack is worthless if you don't keep it pure. So get married, (to someone WE choose), and obey his every whim."

You have to feel sorry for them, at least a little bit. I feel bad for the Duggar mum. She has spent nearly as much of her life pregnant as she hasn't. She also has to live in a house full of screaming, pooing, maladjusted fundies, that are being looked after bu other screaming pooing raping maladjusted fundies.

How am I a moron to think that the adult women who support their children getting abused are also partially at fault here? They're adults and they're choosing to let children be harmed. I grew up in a similar lovely situation with crazy super-Catholics so I know how paralyzing the abuse and control can be and how long it takes to grow out of it, but I still can't say that these wives should be treated as innocent, especially if it comes out that Josh is molesting his daughters. I'm definitely biased from my own situation growing up; it drives me nuts seeing adults claim ignorance and quote scripture when they know a child is in pain.

And I guess if the rumors are true the Duggar mom does that blanket training crap with her kids which would make her blatantly abusive herself.

It's an explanation, but not an excuse. Yes, they are at fault, but I don't judge them as harshly as the men because they grow up being discouraged from acting without consent of a man.

The mothers of such families should do something about it and they should soberly be held accountable for the fact that they don't, but it must be remembered that they're drowning in this poo poo just as badly as everyone else. The institutionalized abuse and dehumanization began with them. While you can level the demand against Michelle Duggar right now that she should be fighting against all this, if she ever starts to it will accomplish gently caress all to hold her prolonged failure to do so against her.

Imagine being married to someone like josh duggar. Every day you wake up and he is lying there beside you in bed. Your entire day revolves around him and his needs and wants. He is literally, figuratively, biblically the center of your universe. He is the manifestation of God in your household, and you will obey him as man obeys God himself. You are forced to see his pale, malformed, and flabby body in the nude. You are also forced to have sex with him, and belch out as many of his children as possible as the rapid, consecutive pregnancies take a massive toll on your health. You have no money, and no skills that would allow you to support you and your rapidly growing brood outside of the home. Worse, you suspect that he may have ceased abusing his siblings and peers and moved on to abusing your children. Nobody reports it, nobody listens to you. Nobody in the community really cares. your daughters are pretty much doomed to follow in your footsteps. Your sons will grow up to be little Josh's and Jim bobs. You will be eating poo poo every day for the rest of your life. You will have to eat so much poo poo that you get used to it, and will in fact learn to relish the taste of poo poo.

I remember seeing videos of polygamist wives defending their lifestyle as being so awesome and wonderful but in reality they were just never given the option to actually see any other way of living, they were born into it and brainwashed into thinking their way was the best way. Same goes for the the Duggar kids. That's why they have to be home schooled and chaperoned constantly. If they actually experienced the outside world, they'd loving flee as soon as they were old enough.

I agree with you that ignorance is no excuse when it comes to abuse, or facilitating abuse. Nor does anything excuse the abuse.

But I still think you are being overly harsh on women who are victims of abuse/isolation/family pressure themselves.
