Are you fucking kidding me, you asshole?
The sheer stupidity of my fellow humans never fails to astound me. We have that greedy, low, cockroach kind of thing going on and we're not giving it up for shit. The wolves take and the opinionated sheep baaa about it, and that's all there is. That's us.
I took one look at the Duck Dynasty dudes, in passing, and knew exactly what I was looking at. I never watched the show, and never will. But I was far from shocked when I heard that the Duck Dynasty Daddy was a racist, homophobic moron. Of course he is. Look. At. Him.
Now, one should never judge a book by its cover. Some of the nicest people on earth are raggedy, hillbilly looking folks. However, if you are a multi-billionaire, and you don the garb of a raggedy, hillbilly looking folk, then you have an unmistakable message that you're trying to put out. [He's being insulting to them too, honestly.]
The family that stars in the Duck Dynasty is rich as hell. They go around looking like that for the television show only. There are pictures of them floating around everywhere where they look like typical yuppie Americana--the kind of people that dine on caviar and wipe their asses with hundred dollar bills. The kind of people that ordinary people "Normies" work for.
I have a friend who supports this fucker, and that person and I almost got into a vicious argument about his 'right to say whatever he wants and believe whatever he wants to believe'. I let the argument go, because it isn't all that important to me as something to fight about. However, this man doesn't believe a damn thing he says about gays or blacks or any other controversial issue that might come spewing out of his mouth. What he cares about is money. Controversy brings money, no matter who it may hurt.
So, gay and bestiality become the same thing for the controversy that it will stir up.
And black people loved slavery for the controversy it will stir up.
Spirituality and the Bible have nothing to do with it. MONEY is GOD to this person. And he'll play you like a piano in order to get more of it. He'll run hot fingers all over your emotional keys in order to keep the fight up, the debate going, and his pockets fat.
The Duck Dynasty will, likely, gain even more viewers from this, and the television channel will, no doubt, allow this person back on the show. This is how it works in America. Kick the underdog, the thing that everyone loves to judge and hate (black, gay, whatever) and get a rise in indignation from the righteous masses that will turn into more views for whatever it is that you're currently pimping.
It's so "Same Shit, Different Day" it's not even funny.
THE ISSUE IS NOT ABOUT WHAT THIS MAN BELIEVES AND PROTECTING HIS RIGHT TO SAY AND BELIEVE THOSE THINGS. THE ISSUE IS ABOUT WHETHER YOU ARE GOING TO LET HIM PLAY YOU TO HIS BENEFIT. THE GOD HE IS RAVING ABOUT ISN'T SOMETHING THAT HE REALLY BELIEVES IN. THIS MAN'S GOD IS MONEY.
We're smarter than this, aren't we?
...less predictably hate-filled than this?
...BETTER than this?
Daryl, my love. Kick. His. Poser. Ass.
