Four days after controversial ‘Duck Dynasty’ patriarch Phil Robertson was re-instated on the show after racist and anti-gay remarks led to a brief suspension, a new video emerged of Phil telling men to marry teenage girls. Check out the shocking new footage below!
Do you still “Stand With Phil?” Duck Dynasty star Phil Robertson continued down his holy path in a new video that features some “river rat counseling” (his words) on how men should marry women when they’re 15 or 16 year old girls — because after that they become gold-diggers, obviously.
Phil Robertson: Marry ‘Em Young
The new video — which was taken at a Georgia Sportsmen Ministry event in 2009 — starts out basic enough, with the typical sexist drivel you’d hear from a man of Phil’s age. Phil begins by giving local men advice on what type of woman they should marry:
“Make sure that she can cook a meal,” he says. “You need to eat some meals that she cooks. Check that out. Make sure she caries her bible; that’ll save you a lot of trouble down the road. And if she picks your ducks, now that’s a woman.”
I’m sure he means actually physically picking the feathers off of ducks, right? He couldn’t possibly be making a sexual reference using ducks as a metaphor.
“You got to marry these girls when they are 15 or 16,” Phil says. “They’ll pick your ducks.”
Oops, guess I was wrong! He was making a sexual reference using ducks as a metaphor.
“Look, you wait until they get to be 20 years old, the only picking that’s going to take place is your pocket,” he tells the audience, who happen to think that statutory rape is just hilarious, and that women stop enjoying sex at the age of 20. Phil did offer a disclaimer, however:
“You need to check with mom and dad about that of course.”
I’m so glad that Phil thinks you should ask for permission before making a teenage girl your “duck-picking” slave. Courtney Stodden‘s parents gave permission, and everything turned out great there.
Oh well, time to get back to gold digging!
What do you think, HollywoodLifers? Do you still stand with Phil after this latest bout of awful, sexist comments?
