After everybody got done misquoting and misrepresenting Phil Robertson’s comments in GQ about how he loves vagina, can’t imagine a dude tanking another dude in the ass, and called homosexuality sinful, the landscape settled down and people realized that about half the country agreed with him. Actually, 45%, and probably double that among his audience. Losing traction in the crusade against Duck Dynasty, people who hate that other people think differently then they do turned the attack on Phil Robertson to his vile racism. Specifically, comments about how black people he worked the fields with in the 1950′s and 1960′s in the South were happier before the rise of the welfare state and the civil rights movement in earnest. A somewhat uninformed suggestion at best, but not exactly Sheriff Bull Connor with a stick and a hose. Still, Phil Robertson serves as a platform to remind ourselves that only by publicly claiming to be more enlightened than the next man can we truly find enlightenment ourselves. I think Buddha said something like that while watching his monastic slaves work his property.
