12/21/13: Candidate Compares Phil Robertson To Rosa Parks

Plus, Charlie Sheen weighs and more 'Duck Dynasty' nonsense


Phil Robertson of 'Duck Dynasty''

“In December 1955, Rosa Parks took a stand against an unjust societal persecution of black people, and in December 2013, Robertson took a stand against persecution of Christians,” says Ian Bayne, a candidate for the United States Congress in the 11th District of Illinois.  ”What Parks did was courageous. What Mr. Robertson did was courageous too.”

‘DUCK DYNASTY’ STARS SAY THEY ARE BEING ‘HUNG OUT TO DRY’
In an interview with The Mail Online, a family source says A&E was very aware of the contents of Phil Robertson’s controversial interview with GQ — because a network rep was present when it happened.

“They didn’t ever try to stop it or control it. Instead, they let it hit the headlines and then released a statement condemning it,” the source says.  “It is our belief that they knew what was going to happen and then used the situation to exercise control over Phil.”

CHARLIE SHEEN WEIGHS IN ON ROBERTSON DEBATE
Never one to let a controversy pass him by, the former TWO AND A HALF MEN star jumped right into the middle of the DUCK DYNASTY mess today, penning a rambling note to Phil Robertson via Twitpic.

It reads:

hey Mallard brained
Phil Robertso!
you have offended and hurt so many dear friends of mine,
who DO NOT have the voice or the outreach that I do.
well news flash
shower-dodger,
I will speak loudly and clearly for ALL of them.
so,
just when your desperately sub evolved ass thought the pressure was off,
you are now in the crosshairs of a MaSheen style media
beat down.
(I’ll try to keep the big words to a minimum as not to confuse you)

your statements were and are
abhorrently and
mendaciously unforgivable.

the idea that you have a job
outside of dirt-clod stacking
is a miracle.

the only ‘Dynasty’ you are attached to might be the
re-runs of that dated show.

the only thing you should ever be in charge of building is a hole in the ground the exact size of your head.
perhaps your beard would fit as well if you plucked out the
army of scabies and
bull weevils sequestered deep in it’s sarcophagus of dander and weasel pelts.

shame on you.
you’re the only surviving
brain donor I’ve ever known.

when the gators and Egrets
kick you out of their
hovel,
you need to make serious amends to those you have
radically offended.

on the eight day
when I was whittling my cosmic banjo,
I’m pretty sure YOU were the scattered dross I then used to light a fire and
locate the nearest
Andy Gump.

repulsed by you;
c sheen

hash tag;
Duck; that was me.
