Phil Robertson Encourages Men To Marry Young Girls
Freshly reinstalled on his reality TV show, “Duck Dynasty” patriarch Phil Robertson is facing a new controversy over an old video of him espousing more redneck wisdom.
Via NY Daily News reports:
In the 2009 footage that surfaced on YouTube, the politically incorrect voice of the Bayou advises bachelors to marry high school girls.
“You got to marry these girls when they are about 15 or 16. They’ll pick your ducks,” the millionaire duck call maker says at a Sportsmen’s Ministry retreat in Georgia.
Of course, the 67-year-old Robertson was literally talking about cleaning birds.
“Make sure that she can cook a meal. You need to eat some meals that she cooks, check that out,” he said, holding up a Bible and sharing what he termed “river rat counseling.”
“Make sure she carries her Bible,” he says. “That’ll save you a lot of trouble down the road. And if she picks your ducks, now, that’s a woman.”
But the grandfather of a 16-year-old budding female fashion designer tries not to sound like a total pervert.
“You need to check with mom and dad about that of course,” says Robertson, who married his wife, Kay, when she was 16.
But the bearded backwoods philosopher concedes that a good wife is “getting hard to find.”
“Mainly because these boys are waiting until they get to be about 20 years old before they marry ’em,” he says. “Look, you wait until they get to be 20 years old, the only picking that’s going to take place is your pocket.”
Someone put a duck call in this guy’s mouth and tell him to STFU!!!!
