No one in the Robertson family likes to make a splash more than Phil Robertson. Or perhaps it’s just that the Duck Dynasty patriarch truly doesn’t care what the mainstream media thinks of him. Here’s 10 things the Duck Commander has said this year that sent the PC police running in circles.
He Doesn’t Want To Be Politically Correct
Phil Robertson doesn’t want to be politically correct. He doesn’t care who he offends and he doesn’t care who disagrees. In fact, last year he started an entire online streaming series dedicated to just that- being politically incorrect. Robertson’s In The Woods With Phil features the grandfather doing what he loves. He sets out into the woods and tells it just as he sees it- unfiltered and unaltered.
He explained, “For far too long we have been told to shut up. No more. Here’s the deal, America. These are my woods. Out here, I call the shots. Out here, we reject political correctness, or as I like to say, ‘pontificated crap’.”
Abortion Is Evil
There’s perhaps nothing Phil Robertson has said that enrages the left media more than his words on abortion. Phil Robertson recently titled one of his Facebook posts, “Abortion a Women’s Health Issue? What About the Little Girls They’re Killing?” The Robertson family have been incredibly open and forthcoming about their pro-life stance.
Korie Robertson even shared that she voted for Donald Trump because of that one issue. Phil Robertson couldn’t feel more strongly about the issue. He said, “All these people talk about women’s rights and all of this stuff, all of these little girls that are killed. Well, it’s a women’s health issue… And you’re like, a woman’s health issue? Half of those women you’re killing are girls, are little baby girls. I mean, what about their health? It’s just evil.” While many were enraged by his comments, others agreed with him.
