'Duck Dynasty' Patriarch's GOTV Message: Democrats Are Evil and Depraved God-Haters

Last week, My Faith Votes, a Religious Right voter mobilization effort, featured an interview with Phil Robertson in which the former “Duck Dynasty” star urged Christians to vote Republican in the upcoming midterm elections because, he says, the Democrats are evil and depraved God-haters.

“This particular election, this cycle, this is the most important one I’ve seen since I’ve been on the earth,” Robertson said. “Say what you will about Mr. Donald J. Trump, but I have no argument or no negative things to say about his policies. I think he’s been a wonderful president, so far.”

“I just think we ought to look at both groups,” Robertson recommended, citing a passage from the book of Romans. “Since they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God, he gives them over to a reprobate mind. They’re full of wickedness, evil, greed, and depravity. They’re God-haters, slanders, gossips. They’re insolent, arrogant, boastful, senseless, faithless, heartless, ruthless.”

“Just look at both groups and say, ‘Are the Republicans more godly than the other party?'” he concluded. “I’ve looked at it and I said, ‘There’s no doubt about it.’ They’re at least not anti-God, so I would say everyone go out and vote. I would recommend Republican all the way. They’re a lot better than the other side.”

1. I didn't know Duck Dynasty was still a thing.
2. Seriously, does Phil have nothing better to do?

a demented flock.

4. But Paul Krugman

Recently, Republicans were losing their minds because Paul Krugman said friends did not let friends vote Republican because Republicans are bad people. Now you have this guy saying something that is worse. I wonder how many Republicans will be calling him out for these comments. This is not the first time Republicans have said things like this against Democrats. This is par for the course for them.

18. The family has a couple of adopted Black children and they seem to be full family.

I think that he is classic mixed up rightwing Christian that has been fed nonsense about democrats by opportunistic preachers.

Robertson is pretty much another Trump, and his fan base has some 90+ percent overlap with Trump's.

When you're a brand, you have to wave it around so the fans don't forget it.

13. Oh yeah he's fucking insane.

I remember seeing this story from him last year where he went off the rails on a hypothetical situation that would never happen and I was like "And that's why I'm not religious".

14. I'm not at all concerned that someone is going to take my guns away.

I am however, 200% paranoid that someone is coming to take my free speech rights away. And unlike the former, that could actually happen if these right wing Christian fuckwads get their way.

29. This may have something to do with his reality show history

But I'm never sure if the crazy things he said are to be taken as bad because he believes them, or bad because he doesn't believe them but says them anyway for the attention.
