At a Ted Cruz rally in South Carolina on Friday, the candidate-with-doll’s-eyes, was introduced by Phil Robertson. The “Duck Dynasty” star crawled out of the swamp to speak at the rally and beg people to vote for Cruz.
Waving a Bible around and yelling about “perversion,” Robertson told the young men in the audience to “marry you a woman.” He advised that the woman be “clean” and the men keep their marriage bed “heterosexual.” Because you won’t get any STDs that way, he said, wielding a study from the Centers For Disease Control on sexual diseases (one of his go-to rants). In an interesting juxtaposition, Robertson then introduced Ted Cruz whom, we gather, is “clean,” too. Because Jesus.
Cruz, for his part, returned the praise of Robertson, who officially endorsed the presidential hopeful in Iowa last month. But what he said is so at odds with reality that it makes you wonder if Cruz ate his crazy flakes Friday morning:
You know there’s a reason he terrifies the mainstream media. He says the things you’re not supposed to say. He actually remembers who we are as Americans and just speaks it with a joy, not with an anger, not with a hatred, with a joy in who we are.
Cruz, jokingly(?) said that Robertson would make a great UN Ambassador because he would confront the Russians. Cruz apparently doesn’t understand the role of a UN Ambassador, just like he doesn’t understand a lot of things. Can you imagine Robertson as our UN ambassador? As if the rest of the world doesn’t already think we’ve lost it.
And “joyful?” Really?! I don’t think that Cruz has heard or read the things that Robertson lets drip from his foul mouth. Let’s see… hippies cause STDs. Atheists deserve to be castrated. Supporters of marriage equality are “wicked” and marriage equality leads to bestiality. Blacks were happy under Jim Crow laws. Liberals are the pawns of Satan and worse than Nazis. Yep. That guy is just full of joy. I guess it’s only for white, Christians males like he and Ted Cruz, though. The rest of us get vitriol, hate and STDs.
