Jessa, Jinger, and Jill Duggar have not shared their thoughts about the violent white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia. However, all three of the Duggar daughters’ husbands have used social media to speak out against the racism and hatred that was on display during the event. Unlike President Donald Trump, the three men condemned racism in their responses.

Whenever a tragic event captures the nation’s attention, the Duggars usually share a Facebook post letting their fans know that they’re praying for the victims and their families. However, Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar have been quiet about the young woman who lost her life at the “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville. As NPR reports, 32-year-old Heather Heyer was killed when 20-year-old James Alex Fields Jr. plowed his car into a group of protesters. Before the incident occurred, Fields was photographed holding a black shield emblazoned with the emblem of a white supremacist organization.

While Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar have chosen to remain silent about the tragedy, three of their sons-in-law have spoken out against the hateful views that caused it. Jill Duggar’s husband, Derick Dillard, tweeted his feelings about the Charlottesville rally-turned-riot where “Make America Great Again” hats could be seen on the heads of white supremacists, many of whom were bedecked in Nazi regalia or carrying Confederate flags.

Some of Derick Dillard’s Twitter followers expressed their relief to that he doesn’t support white supremacists, but others called for him to go one step further by withdrawing his support for President Donald Trump. As Us Magazine reported, Jill Duggar’s husband revealed that he was voting for the reality star with questionable Christian credentials last October. He defended his decision to back Trump on Twitter.

“Voting for Trump doesn’t = condoning his lifestyle. It just means agreeing with more of his policies than Clinton’s,” Derick wrote.

Now, some of the Duggar husband’s Twitter followers are wondering whether Derick supports Trump’s policy of not denouncing racism when it rears its ugly head. As the Guardian reported, the president has been criticized for his failure to speak out against the hate groups who organized the Charlottesville rally. Instead, Trump placed equal blame on the white supremacists and the citizens who showed up to protest the event.
