Mic.com's Matt Essert is salivating over the fact that Josh Duggar, who admits to molesting several underage girls including his sisters when he was a young teen, appears in at least 19 photos with "major U.S. politicians… including several current Republican presidential candidates."
Using Duggar's Twitter account, Essert found and posted pictures of Duggar with Mike Huckabee, who has announced full support of Josh and the entire Duggar family, Rick Santorum, Sarah and Bristol Palin, Jeb Bush, Rick Perry, Scott Walker, Ted Cruz, Tom Cotton, Bobby Jindal, and others.
The Washington Post joined in and ran a headline Friday reading, "Republicans' Josh Duggar problem," complete with the same pictures.
Raw Story found a picture of Duggar with Rand Paul and titled its story, "A lot of Republicans who want to be president got their picture taken with a child molester."
And though the media is busy securing the narrative of linking Christians and Republicans to child molesters, they are likewise busy ignoring the victims and glossing over the many sins of their own. As Daniel Greenfield of David Horowitz's FrontPage Mag points out:
The motive here isn’t subtle. The media is engaged in a lefty culture war against anyone who doesn’t agree with its politics. But in the process it doesn’t just target the “enemy” by any means, it also covers up crimes by its own people.
