"Look, you wait ‘til they get to be 20-years-old and the only picking that’s going to take place is your pocket. You got to marry these girls when they’re about fifteen or sixteen and they’ll pick your ducks.” (emphasis added) From Freakout Nation.This comes from 2009. Like Ted Nugent, Phil Robertson apparently loves Pedophilia. Now, at this point we don't know if he is actively engaged in child rape, like Ted Nugent, but telling Georgia Southerners that a girl's gotta be married at 15 or 16 is nothing less than a full-throated endorsement of Raping little girls.
It's interesting that in rushing to make Robertson the next Right-Wing Faux Martyr that conservatives don't care or don't mind that he's obviously a sick and twisted man. Or, more likely, it's his perverted disgusting views which draws them to him.
Unfortunately, conservatives will just rally around this pro-pedophile because of their nonsensical Freedom of Speech ignorance. Ignoring the fact, that calls to boycott A&E or calls to suspend Phil Robertson are not an abridgment of Freedom of Speech. It is censorship but, choosing to vilify a despicable racist, homophobic pedophile is nothing more than the Free Market at work.
The only violation of the First Amendment in regards to Duck Dynasty that occurred was by Republicans, who used their position in Government to advocate Robertson's specific"religious" views.
"If the Robertson family cannot come to an agreement with A&E and wants to continue the show, Louisiana already has the infrastructure in place to maintain their record-breaking program," Louisiana Lieutenant Governor Jay Dardenne, in his declaration to violate the 1st Amendment.Alabama State Sen. Jerry Fielding, R-Sylacauga, will introduce a Senate resolution in support of Duck Dynasty star Phil Robertson in the upcoming state legislative session.
Clear violations but, always acceptable because conservatives in government are nothing but, hypocritical bigots who pick and choose what Rule of Law, Constitutional Amendments, Religious Views, and Natural Rights they support and which ones they violate.
Nonetheless, I again entreat all Republicans to align themselves with the enunciated Duck Dynasty Ethics; Bigotry, Hatred and Pedophilia. Republicans all stand in support of these principles so let every voter know it.
