There is such a divide in this country right now across the political ideological aisle where irate liberals are so infuriated with those on the right they take their anger out in aggressive ways.
CNN and MSNBC consistently demonize President Trump, which festers in liberals in violent verbally abusive ways.
But “Duck Dynasty” shed light on this and something shocking about liberals.
When “Duck Dynasty” first aired on A&E, nobody – not even the producers and network – had any idea it would become a cultural sensation. It was a simple reality television show about a Louisiana family and nobody knew it would become a smash hit.
To give you an idea of just how successful it was, the show earned $80 million in advertising sales for the first nine months of 2013 – and merchandise generated another $400 million in revenue. That’s almost “Keeping up with the Kardashians,” kind of success.
The family’s patriarch creator wasn’t just a standout quarterback at Louisiana Tech, shockingly starting ahead of future NFL Hall of Famer, Terry Bradshaw, but he also invented the “Duck Commander,” which is a duck call.
The show was cancelled several years ago but Robertson still makes the rounds on news programs when people want to interview him like appearing on Sean Hannity’s Fox News show recently.
Robertson wanted to let left-wingers know that he still “loves” them despite disagreeing with their political and social beliefs and also admitted, “even if they don’t sit down and listen.”
The “Duck Dynasty” star told Hannity about the decision to write his book, “The Theft of America’s Soul: Blowing the Lid Off the Lies That Are Destroying Our Country,” “Well, I just try to warn the country I love. I’m told to love God and love my neighbor. I love them all — I love every one of them.”
Clearly Robertson has a lot of patience because most people on the right don’t feel that way.
When you’re constantly harassed about your political and social views you tend to just ignore the passerby’s or shut aggressive friends out of your life. The divide can be extreme but the most important thing to remember is to compartmentalize their political views, especially if they’re family members.
Robertson also told Hannity, “If they’re like, ‘You can’t eat meat because I don’t like you eating meat,’ I’m like, ‘calm down, let’s talk.’ So, we go through the food laws and all this stuff. But I love them even if they don’t sit down and listen.’”
Those are wise words because nobody is angrier than a vegan trying to convince people that eating meat is unnatural. We are a carnivorous species and meat has necessary nutrients that we need in our bodies. It’s not very complicated.
The 73-year-old also said, “The scary part about the liberal left [is] they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God. [God] gave them over to a reprobate mind to do what ought not to be done. And the list is this long. And it ends up that God-haters, slanderers – they’re senseless, faithless, heartless, ruthless… it’s the devil. That’s why I said the ‘theft’ of America’s soul, I meant the evil one.”
Isaac Newton’s Third Law of Thermodynamics states that for every action there is an equal opposite reaction so it shouldn’t be surprising that when Donald Trump won the election in 2016 there would be outraged liberals pushing back.
Robertson also spoke about mass shooting tragedies and how liberals react to them when he said, “That’s what we do, but what we’re trying to do is change the human heart. You see in the political world; everybody is up in arms because every time a school shooting or something happens it pains us – it hurts us, so we get into the same debates about guns, which we use common sense because we all have guns.”
Not only do liberals call for gun control after every mass shooting tragedy – without respect for the victims’ families – but they also mock those that offer up “thoughts and prayers” to anybody who was affected.
It may be hard to act in a “kill’em with kindness” sort of way but it looks as though Robertson has mastered that technique.
