Derick Dillard on El Salvador: People Get Sexually Assaulted Down Here!

by at .

Even if you're not a fan of the family or its reality shows, you've probably heard about the Josh Duggar sex scandals.

Anna, Josh Duggar

In case you somehow missed it (or managed to successfully block it out of your memory), here's a brief rundown:

Don't click on that after eating, or before bed, or any other time that you don't want to be exposed to nightmare fuel more potent than anything Stephen King could dream up on his best day.

Anyway, Josh won't appear on Counting On, because even the Duggars occasionally demonstrate good sense.

So why are talking just days after the show kicked off its second season?

Well, it all has to do with a newly-released "extended trailer" for Counting On Season 2.

You see, Jill Duggar and Derick Dillard recently returned to Arkansas after a year of missionary work in Central America.

Part of the reason for that is that they've apparently decided El Salvador is simply not a safe place to raise a family.

Derick explains why in the clip below:

"There are a lot of dangerous realities that do come with living in a place like Central America," Der tells the camera.

"Kidnappings, rape, murder - those are realities that everyone here has to face on a daily basis."

He went on to say that we should build a wall around El Salvador and make their government pay for it.

Okay, we may have made that last part up.

And Derick's point is a valid one in that there is more violent crime in many South and Central American countries than in the US.

Even so, it's not hard to see why some fans were upset by his remarks.

The man is sitting next to his wife, who was molested by Josh Duggar, and saying that he's looking forward to returning home because people get sexually assaulted in these parts, by golly!

It's another indication that for all their lip service regarding the seriousness of Josh's crimes, the Duggars and the men who married into the Duggar family aren't really cognizant of the fact that they live with a child molester who evaded the authorities with the help of his parents.

If they really internalized that, there would be no way that they wouldn't be seething with anger at Josh and Michelle and Jim Bob for helping him get away with his crimes.

And there's no way that Derick would sit there and bemoan the prevalence of unpunished sexual assault in El Salvador.

Watch Counting On online at TV Fanatic for more obliviousness from the Dugz.
