“Duck Dynasty” Patriarch Says Blacks Were “Happy” Pre-Welfare And Men Should Prefer Box To Man-Cakes

Well damn. Tell us how you really feel Phil. The stars of reality TV’s most popular show “Duck Dynasty” are featured in the January 2014 issue of GQ.

Drew Magary toured the Louisiana backwater with Phil Robertson and his clan to find out how a family of squirrel-eating, Bible-thumping, catchphrase-spouting duck hunters became the biggest TV stars in America… And what they’ll do now that they have 14 million fervent disciples.

Family patriarch Phil Robertson doesn’t hold back on sharing his views, despite holding a more than a few controversial ones. Peep a few quotes below:

On growing up in pre-civil-rights-era Louisiana

“I never, with my eyes, saw the mistreatment of any black person. Not once. Where we lived was all farmers. The blacks worked for the farmers. I hoed cotton with them. I’m with the blacks, because we’re white trash. We’re going across the field…. They’re singing and happy. I never heard one of them, one black person, say, ‘I tell you what: These doggone white people’—not a word!… Pre-entitlement, pre-welfare, you say: Were they happy? They were godly; they were happy; no one was singing the blues.”

What type of deep down in Dixie fantasyland did Robertson grow up in? “Song of the South”? SMH. Like some oppressed cotton workers are going to complain about Jim Crow to a white person, no matter how poor?! Grandpa needs a reality check.

Hit the flip for more of his views on healthcare, politics, sin and sexuality.
