Yes,tomorrow(as of this writing) is Christmas day,but the controversy behind DUCK DYNASTY star Phil Robertson(over his remarks of homosexuality being close to bestiality,and blacks being more happier during the pre-Civil Right times) continues to live(and move onward),with a few well-known names having tossed their names into the hat(or,better yet,…hunting cap).
First off,GOP candidate Ian Bayne discussed Robertson’s case the other day and claimed than Robertson is “a Rosa Parks for our times”. What ?!…. that wilderness hunting long bearded redneck is as important a historical figure as Rosa Parks ?! Not so,since Rosa Parks sat in the front of a bus in the early 60s(during the blacks segregation years) and helped bring forth the Civll Right crusade,while Phil Robertson is just a reality TV star/celebrity who’s got no historical refernces whatsoever,for Bayne’s remarks easily shows how delusional the right wing conservative movement truly is.
Next,the “We Hate Everything And Everybody” folks at the Westboro Baptist Church are proudly standing behind Robertson for his anti-homosexuality remarks,showing where they fully stand. Well,at least these brainless hatemongers (for once) love both something…and someone(for a change).
And now,right wing conservative party cover girl/airhead extradinnaire Sarah Palin has joined in on standing up for Robertson,saying that everyone that’s criticizing him are taking away his right to free speech(which Ian Bayne is also stating),yet admitted on Greta Van Susteren’s Fox News show that she hasn’t read his interview,which shows where she stands. With all of the nasty things I’ve said about Palin over the last few years,I’ll just let her latest actions speak for themselves.
Cult film star/Andy Warhol stalwart Joe Dallesandro best summed it up on his Facebook page in saying that this media overhyping of Robertson’s remarks is just the media’s way of manipulating everyone into accepting all of this overhype,for Robertson should have know that whatever anyone says is bound to have consequences,as this case is fully proving,as well as that these are current politically correct times in watching what to say upon anything,including homosexuality(just ask Alec Baldwin). Speaking of which,major leaguw idiot/overhype journalist extradinnaire Geraldo Rivera(the corporate/political sell-out that he truly is) also threw his views into this situation,saying that “coksucking fag”(which Baldwin called a paparazzi photographer) isn’t homophobic. Well,it truly is(as well as a profane cuss word).
Otherwise,this whole situation over one man’s views(just because he’s a reality TV celebrity[whose show makes lots of money,has high TV ratings,and sells lots of merchandise at Wal-Mart) is getting pretty much out-of-hand and going way overboard,for hopefully this controversy and the fallout it’s causing will soon go away(as other media overhyped new story item does),since I couldn’t imagine the DUCK DYNASTY patriarch giving us all a fond Christmas present to best remember him by(other than just his TV series).
