Yesterday, in the most stereotypically Southern thing you’ll ever see in your life, Duck Dynasty‘s Phil Robertson gave the opening prayer before NASCAR’s Duck Commander 500 race in Texas.
His invocation included a wish that a Christian man make his way into the White House:
We got here via bibles and guns. I’m fixed to pray to the one who made that possible. Father, thank you for founding our nation. I pray, Father, that we don’t forget who brought us — You. Our faith in the blood of Jesus and his resurrection. Help us, Father, to get back to that.
Help us, Dear God, understand that the men and women on my right are the U.S. military. On my right, and on my left, our faith in you and the U.S. military is the reason we’re still here.
I pray, Father, we put a Jesus man in the White House.
Help us do that, and help us all to repent, to do what’s right to love you more and to love each other. In the name of Jesus I pray. Amen.
That’s Robertson’s way of saying we need a Republican in the White House.
Because Hillary Clinton isn’t a man and the Jewish Bernie Sanders doesn’t accept the divinity of Jesus. Robertson’s comment was also a slam on President Obama since he implied that there wasn’t already a Christian man in the White House.
As for loving each other, even that was strange to hear from his mouth, given that Robertson has previously fantasized about the rape and murder of an atheist family, equated homosexuality with bestiality, and said African Americans were actually happy in the Jim Crow south.
Not that you had any doubts, but Robertson has already endorsed Ted Cruz. They even made a commercial together.
Okay, I take back my opening line. That Cruz video is the new most stereotypically Southern thing I have ever seen.
