Ted Cruz Supporter Phil Robertson: “Rid the Earth Of” Gay Marriage Supporters
This is where Republican politics has ended up in 2016 — outright hate speech and bigotry on the national stage, in a presidential race. And it’s come to be just expected, normal behavior from conservatives.
Duck Dynasty’s Phil Robertson (looking more like Osama bin Laden at every appearance) has endorsed Ted Cruz, because he obviously found the candidate who most embodies his own values — the values of virulent homophobia and murderous intent. Yesterday, while campaigning for Cruz, Robertson ranted angrily that marriage equality is a sign of “depravity” and “perversion,” and said, “We have to rid the earth of them.”
And following this horrible speech, Ted Cruz took the stage and praised Robertson as “a joyful, cheerful, unapologetic voice of truth.”
