Josh Duggar Uses Thanksgiving to Praise Republican Midterm Wins (Video)

| by Michael Allen

Josh Duggar, the son of Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar, announced how thankful he was on Thanksgiving for Republican wins during the midterm election a few weeks ago.

“Hey, it’s Josh Duggar. You probably know me from 19 Kids and Counting on reality TV. I’m also the executive director of Family Research Council [FRC] Action here in Washington, D.C.,” says Duggar, noted RawStory.com (video below).

“When I think about what FRC Action and my family are truly thankful for this Thanksgiving holiday season, there are so many things that come to mind. We are truly blessed,” Duggar continues, as his wife and three children join him.

Duggar then takes his family for a ride in their SUV while he praises the "blessing" of the passage of Amendment One in Tennessee, which will allow state lawmakers to limit legal abortion.

Duggar also says how grateful he is that Republicans won eight seats in the U.S. Senate and 12 in the House during the midterm elections.

“The efforts of American families are making a difference,” adds Duggar.

He claims that five Houston pastors who were lawfully subpoenaed over a political lawsuit was an "injustice" and is thankful that doesn't happen very often.

An online petition has been circulating since August urging TLC to drop the Duggar family's reality TV show because Michelle Duggar made robocalls that claimed a proposed nondiscrimination ordinance in Fayetteville, Ark., would place young girls in danger.

"I don’t believe the citizens of Fayetteville would want males with past child predator convictions that claim they are female to have a legal right to enter private areas that are reserved for women and girls," Michelle said in the robocall, noted RightWingWatch.org (audio below).

In response to the anti-Duggar petition, fans of the Duggar family recently started an online petition to keep the Christian conservative clan on TLC, reports Deadline.com.
