A FB friend posted this (click here) video yesterday. The commentator claims that Duck Dynasty is fake. I’ve watched it twice. I can’t vouch for the veracity of what is said in the video and he certainly seems to be slamming Christians pretty hard. I absolutely believe that it’s within the realm of possibility that the network may have manufactured the entire Phil Robertson flap to create controversy and get people talking about the show. Americans tend to be a knee jerk visceral group of people when it comes to certain issues like religion and politics. I find the “before” and “after” pictures of the Robertson family very interesting. From wealthy golf playing yuppies to Southern Rednecks…wow. I’ve been had. In fact I think we may have all been duped. I don’t believe in conspiracies. One shot killed Kennedy, the Twin Towers were not taken down by our own government and there is no such thing as alien abductions. I think the entire Phil Robertson flap or for that matter the entire series may be a sham or in pro-wrestling parlance, “a work”. Duck Dynasty is the highest rated show on a network that hardly anyone watches. In fact I don’t think the Robertson family as portrayed in the show even exists. There is an old saying that goes “there is no such thing as bad press.” Man O Man…I bought into the whole thing, hook, line and sinker. Well played A&E…well played.
Click here for another article that has before and after pictures of the Robertson family. Something fishy going on here… Google “Duck Dynasty without beards or Duck Dynasty before and after” the internet is rife with pictures of the beardless Robertson family.
Clean cut golf playing yuppies. Before the show.
We’ve retired our golf clubs…we are now Rednecks! What a miraculous transformation!
Here is what Duck Dynasty “Star” Phil Robertson had to say in a recent interview:
“It seems like, to me, a vagina — as a man — would be more desirable than a man’s anus. That’s just me. I’m just thinking: There’s more there! She’s got more to offer. I mean, come on, dudes! You know what I’m saying? But hey, sin: It’s not logical, my man. It’s just not logical,” he’s quoted as saying.
When asked what he thought was sinful, Robertson replied: “Start with homosexual behavior and just morph out from there. Bestiality, sleeping around with this woman and that woman and that woman and those men.”
But homosexuals aren’t alone, Robertson said. “Neither the adulterers, the idolaters, the male prostitutes, the homosexual offenders, the greedy, the drunkards, the slanderers, the swindlers — they won’t inherit the kingdom of God. Don’t deceive yourself. It’s not right.”
Robertson is entitled to his opinion regardless of how poorly thought out and inarticulate it is. People are overlooking who Phil Robertson is…umm he makes duck callers for a living he’s not writing a thesis on the Schwarzchild radius. I’m sure in the realm of the duck calling industry Robertson and the rest of the nincompoops in his family are experts. That being said, I’m not sure the guy is bright enough to formulate a thought and make an informed opinion about anything on any topic other than the intricacies of duck callers. The guy is obviously off his rocker for opening his mouth and expressing himself in the public forum. Hey folks he’s a reality T.V. star, not a Nobel Prize laureate, what did you think a dope like him would say when asked a question about a complex and controversial issue? I watched the show once. The episode was funny as hell. It was the episode when Phil and his clan tried to steal honey from a wild honeybee hive by using a shop vac. Of course it ended with everyone fleeing in agony as the bees attacked them. It was funny but they did not strike me as being an exceptionally bright bunch of guys. Hey Phil…shut your pie hole…nobody is interested in your stupid and inane opinions. I’m not shocked at what Robertson said. I’m shocked that people are so offended by what a man who is clearly an imbecile had to say. Scroll down to the bottom of the page for a post script.
a stupid person.
“try not to make imbecile remarks”
As has been pointed out to me by several FB friends, Robertson is an educated man. In fact he has a Masters Degree in education. Click here for his bio. He’s also a wealthy man. This is why I simply can’t understand why he did not have the political savvy to simply keep his mouth shut in the GQ interview. At minimum his publicist or PR. rep should have been there to “handle” the interview. That is why I’m slamming him in the post. I believe that he was capable of understanding the question and it’s consequences. He simply could have refused to answer or deflect the question. Do any of you remember what “Jimmy The Greek” said about black athletes? He was fired and run out of the business for expressing a completely inane opinion. Click here for his statement about black athletes. Perhaps Jimmy The Greek actually believed what he said. But how could he be so clueless to not think that his statement was sure to have dire consequences? We live in a world of political correctness. Period. If you are a public figure you should have the political acumen and savvy to understand when to keep your mouth shut. Is Robertson truly a stupid man? Of course not. But his actions speak volumes about his inability to be a forward thinker.
