News: Jim Bob Duggar – Petty Tyrant?

News: Jim Bob Duggar – Petty Tyrant? August 26, 2015

newsRemember last  night when I noted that the the Duggar insiders, the always quoted ‘unnamed insiders’ that make up the back bone of every Duggar story, have been suspiciously silent in the wake of Josh’s newest scandal. They are baackk…. they and People magazine have turned ugly on the Duggars. I guess that’s what happens when you refuse a People magazine interview. Which the Duggars did a few weeks back, meaning that People Magazine’s Duggar update that came out the same day as the news of Josh’s Ashley Madison account was a big embarrassment. A misstep that apparently People hasn’t forgotten.

Here’s what those unnamed insiders are now saying about Jim Bob:

“Jim Bob’s favorite word is ‘no,’ ” says one Duggar family source. “He’s like a dictator. He once saw a guy kissing a girl before marriage and confronted him about it. And the guy said, ‘Jim Bob, show me that verse in the Bible that says we can’t kiss. Get out your Bible.’ And Jim Bob was like, ‘Uhhhh …’ because no one ever confronts Jim Bob. No one.”

Adds a second source: “Jim Bob calls the shots. Always has and always will.”

Hmm, interesting. I guess this means that Anna Duggar is being kept from talking to anyone that is not on Jim Bob Duggar’s approved list. How unfortunate for her.
