Jim Bob Duggar has never kept his values a secret, even if they are somewhat downplayed on his TLC series 19 Kids and Counting.
The former Arkansas state representative appeared at the Values Voter Summit and made a speech about the evils of abortion. In his speech, Jim Bob relayed a story about Mike Huckabee visiting a former concentration camp (which he defines as “where a lot of Jewish people were killed,” in case you hadn’t heard) and then drew a parallel between abortion and the Holocaust.
“You are the army that can go out and impact America,” Jim Bob said to the crowd at Liberty University in Virginia. He probably also meant to add “and you should also have a ton of kids and make a baby army like I did.” After the speech, he added, “Let me clarify, we have since 1973 had 55 million abortions, so what we have going on is a baby holocaust.”
Oh, and the event also featured a speaker who claimed that Matthew Shepard’s murder was “a fraud.” Sounds like a fun day!
