    Duck Dynasty’s Phil Robertson is very popular in some conservative circles and he made it no secret during the primary season that he was supporting Ted Cruz. He even campaigned with Cruz. Now that Donald Trump is the GOP nominee, Phil has changed his tune and is all in with Trump. He even had an interesting suggestion as to how to help the campaign out. From Western Journalism: “I’ll make a valiant attempt behind the scenes, you understand, to sit down with Donald with a Bible in between us, and I might can help him along with concepts like loving...

And it was a mighty fine invocation, indeed. “I pray Father that we put a Jesus-Man in the White House,” he prayed. “Help us do that and help us all to repent, to do what is right, to love you more and to love each other. In the name of Jesus I pray, amen.”

    Phil Robertson is an embarrassment, not a hero, and the socially conservative movement needs to distance itself from him immediately. Don’t get me wrong — I agree that our culture is experiencing a terrifying shift towards censorship. People have become so easily offended that it’s almost impossible to say anything without someone getting upset about it; and concepts like trigger warnings, safe spaces, and microaggressions are threatening free speech. But none of this changes the fact that Phil Robertson is an ignorant buffoon, and that many of his comments — despite the fact that he does have every right to...

If the United States were a "civilized country" like those in Europe, Tanya Cohen wrote for Thought Catalog, then Robertson, a reality show star on A&E's "Duck Dynasty," "would have been taken before a government Human Rights Tribunal or Human Rights Commission and given a fine or prison sentence for the hateful and bigoted comments that he made about LGBT people."

    The Republican unity tour with former rivals Rep. Bill Cassidy and Rob Maness will continue Saturday (Nov. 15) afternoon with a rally featuring the two of them, former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin and "Duck Dynasty" star Phil Robertson. Maness drew 14 percent of the vote in the primary, and Cassidy needs that to defeat Democratic Sen. Mary Landrieu.

Sarah and her husband Todd met with veterans, who also had a chance to hang out with Si, Alan, Jep, Kay, and Phil Robertson along with other family friends that are part of the cast.

One of the two bearded fellows is Bob Bergdahl, father of recently-released POW Bowe Bergdahl. Besides his whiskers, Bob seems to proudly exhibit a strong affinity for Islam, a religion that tolerates the mistreatment of women, children, and homosexuals, and has a violent faction that has killed thousands of innocent Americans. Bob is currently one of the two top recipients of the left’s politically-correct attention, protection,...

The remarks created a stir and Bashir, a British journalist of Pakistani background, apologized for them. But before long, the veteran journalist was suspended by the network and he resigned. Just days later, another controversy brewed, this time involving Phil Robertson,...

    Duck Dynasty’s Phil Robertson may have emerged victorious from his recent spat with A&E, but the millionaire patriarch is already plotting revenge on the TV network behind his hit show and reportedly has a plan in the works to move his family - plus millions of dollars of advertising and merchandise revenue - to another broadcaster. Humiliated by A&E’s recent attempt to silence his conservative religious message, Robertson - whose Duck Commander business is worth an estimated $15 million - is secretly plotting to form his own TV production company so he can jump ship to a Christian channel more...

    An ESPN senior writer said that Duck Dynasty patriarch Phil Robertson is a "disgrace to the South" and either a "racist or dumb" for saying that he did not witness the mistreatment of blacks in his personal experience in the Jim Crow South. Robertson described himself as someone who was "white trash" and worked in the fields with blacks in his controversial interview with GQ magazine.

    Even though CNN's phony controversy hasn't even been able to pick up traction at MSNBC, that hasn't stopped the left-wing cable news network from attempting to manufacture more trouble for Phil Robertson and "Duck Dynasty." But why would we expect anything less from the same network that fabricated evidence to frame a working-class Hispanic man? The CNN report below, covering Robertson's humorous relaying of marriage advice, is taken ultra-seriously by the CNN correspondent, and asks, "What is the tipping point to getting kicked off the air?" (VIDEO-AT-LINK)Does CNN not hear the crowd laughing? It is obvious that Robertson is going...

    NORTH HAVEN, Conn. (CBS Connecticut/AP) — “Duck Dynasty” is getting into the gun business. The Robertson family-owned Duck Commander has teamed up with firearms manufacturer Mossberg to release their own line of guns. Mossberg is releasing 12 types of Duck Commander guns, including 9 shotguns, 2 semiautomatic weapons and a pistol....

    When cable network A&E suspended then reversed-suspended Duck Dynasty patriarch Phil Robertson, popping off a pop culture tirade that muted national concern for the millions that lost unemployment benefits over the weekend, conservatives got the perfect holiday gift: a bonus Culture War narrative for 2014. In Duck Dynasty, Republican strategists find gold. With the GOP anxiously battling skeptical grassroots conservatives, worry mounts that the usually active base voters who don’t forget about Congressional midterms won’t turn out. As the trials and tribulations of the Affordable Care Act put Democrats’ Senate majority within striking distance of Republican electoral guns, party messaging...

    The family-owned business at the center of the hit TV-show "Duck Dynasty" has launched its own line of guns. The gunmaker Mossberg has teamed with Duck Commander, the company owned by "Duck Dynasty's" Robertson clan, to release nine different shotguns, as well as two semiautomatic rifles and a semiautomatic pistol. Mossberg has begun shipping some of the shotguns to distributors, according to spokeswoman Linda Powell. She declined to name specific retailers that will carry them. Duck Commander was founded 40 years ago by Phil Robertson, the family patriarch who was recently suspended -- and then reinstated -- by A&E after...

    Problems regarding the A&E network’s reality television show, Duck Dynasty, have been making news a little too often lately. They say that no publicity is bad publicity is bad publicity, but this doesn’t seem to be really true in this case. Below is a review of Duck Dynasty and the reasons it’s time to end it. The show revolves around the Robertson family, who went from rags to riches by way of their family-operated business dedicated to selling products in demand for duck hunters: the Duck Commander. The show is set in Louisiana, and the cast consists of matriarch and...

    Now that I’ve actually seen a few episodes, “Duck Dynasty” is relatively harmless entertainment. Whatever “reality TV” means, it’s definitely not that. It’s a semi-scripted sitcom, basically cornball self-parody. Think “Hee Haw” without the music. I find it utterly inane, but then I don’t watch TV with children. The “tell” is the show’s women, cute Southern sorority girls turned mommies. In real life, no way would those women tolerate their “menfolk” running around looking like a truckload of ZZ-Top impersonators. They’re also not going on TV with hay in their hair like some Hollywood director’s idea of a country girl....

    We already knew he was racist and homophobic. Now it emerges that he thinks girls should marry at 15 or 16. Know what? If you had told me, a month ago, that the Christian Right would have a strong reaction to a bearded religious zealot in a headscarf urging men to take child brides, I'd have believed that. And I would have believed that the man's family would go on Fox News to defend him, but I would have assumed they were doing it from a bunker somewhere, with voice filters and behind a screen … not in the studio...
  • 'You got to marry these girls when they are 15 or 16': Phil Robertson wades into new controversy

    Unpleasant video footage of reinstated Duck Dynasty star Phil Robertson has emerged in which he appears to advise young men to marry underage girls because they are easier to control. In the 2009 Sportsmen's Ministry talk, Robertson, 67, who began dating his wife when she was 14-years-old, advises his audience, 'You got to marry these girls when they are 15 or 16. They'll pick your ducks' - which is a literal reference to removing dead bird's feathers. Warming to his stereotypical redneck theme, Robertson, who was suspended from the A&E hit for nine days earlier this month for homophobic comments,...
