Now that Robertson has been reinstated as profit generator for A&E network,having become the icon of free speech, especially freespeech demonizing LGBT people and demeaning African Americans, more Duckspeak comes to the forefront....
Find a young christian girl and marry her..... “Make sure that she can cook a meal. You need to eat some meals that she cooks, check that out. Make sure she carries her Bible. That’ll save you a lot of trouble down the road," Robertson said..... marry girls who are young.... “They got to where they're getting hard to find, mainly because these boys are waiting ‘til they get to be about 20 years old before they marry 'em,”.... “Look, you wait ‘til they get to be 20 years old the only picking that’s going to take place is your pocket. You got to marry these girls when they are about 15 or 16. They’ll pick your ducks."
Sentiments I'm sure his right wing fans like Ann Coulter and Sarah Palin agree with.
Referencing George Orwell on "Duckspeak"... "Duckspeak is a Newspeak term meaning literally to quack like a duck or to speak without thinking. Duckspeak can be either good or “ungood” (bad), depending on who is speaking, and whether what they are saying is in following with the ideals of Big Brother. To speak rubbish and lies may be ungood, but to speak rubbish and lies for the good of “The Party” may be good. In the appendix to 1984, Orwell explains:
Ultimately it was hoped to make articulate speech issue from the larynx without involving the higher brain centres at all....
While we haven't yet reached the point where RepublicanChristians™ control every thought and word, sometimes it feels like Orwell's dystopias were a guideline for today's politics. Not that I would criticize either the Ministry of Truth or the Ministry of Plenty - for which I thank them for their endless prolefeed. Criticism of RepublicanChristians™ goodthink, as I commented on another topic today, would be oldthink and be doubleplus ungood.
I could say that this guy "quacks me up" ... except that he DOESN'T.
This "wisdom" reminds me of a christian friend of mine who once said, "marry 'em young and keep 'em barefoot and pregnant." That was his success story for a happy marriage. Today he is on his second marriage.
As for "Quack Robertson", it's beginning to look like it was all a publicity deal from the beginning and they are trying to get the last mile out of it now.
And the young mother fulfills her maternal duty by providing them with a clean bottom and a full tummy.
Daniel,al Jazeera is good. So is bbc. I watch both rather than our news channels.
Al Jazeera is a very good news source. They simply report the news and they do it without any bulshit. Even better than the Christian Science Monster.
Outrageous. My only relief is that nobody could be that stupid in the 21st century. I could picture such a discourse at the Battle of New Orleans when Andrew Jackson rallied his swamp fighters to defeat the British fighting the devil for God. But that was 47 years before Darwin’s great work.
I truly hope this is a hoax. I’d hate to think the human mind could be so wasted—not the orator as much as his pathetic listeners and supporters.
I live in the South (in a trailer at that), and take my word for it -- people like that are real. They may not quite represent the majority of Southerners, but aren't far from it. Thank Dawg I don't have a TV!
What, not having a TV? :)
The culture of the South is one that celebrates ignorance -- worships it, really. I'm lucky to live now near Greenville, SC which is something of a redoubt for reasonableness in a sea of ridiculousness. My family is from Montgomery County, NC where the KKK and the Southern Baptist church are still synonymous and still run everything from the sheriff's office to the schools. It's really much, much worse than anything that makes TV. Any one of my cousins, old schoolmates and everyone I know back in that hell hole would make that Phil character look like a black gay liberal atheist. There are places in the word that thrive on religious hatred, and they ain't all in Waziristan.
lol. I heard that.
