Now that Robertson has been reinstated as profit generator for A&E network,having become the icon of free speech, especially freespeech demonizing LGBT people and demeaning African Americans, more Duckspeak comes to the forefront....
Find a young christian girl and marry her..... “Make sure that she can cook a meal. You need to eat some meals that she cooks, check that out. Make sure she carries her Bible. That’ll save you a lot of trouble down the road," Robertson said..... marry girls who are young.... “They got to where they're getting hard to find, mainly because these boys are waiting ‘til they get to be about 20 years old before they marry 'em,”.... “Look, you wait ‘til they get to be 20 years old the only picking that’s going to take place is your pocket. You got to marry these girls when they are about 15 or 16. They’ll pick your ducks."
Sentiments I'm sure his right wing fans like Ann Coulter and Sarah Palin agree with.
Referencing George Orwell on "Duckspeak"... "Duckspeak is a Newspeak term meaning literally to quack like a duck or to speak without thinking. Duckspeak can be either good or “ungood” (bad), depending on who is speaking, and whether what they are saying is in following with the ideals of Big Brother. To speak rubbish and lies may be ungood, but to speak rubbish and lies for the good of “The Party” may be good. In the appendix to 1984, Orwell explains:
Ultimately it was hoped to make articulate speech issue from the larynx without involving the higher brain centres at all....
While we haven't yet reached the point where RepublicanChristians™ control every thought and word, sometimes it feels like Orwell's dystopias were a guideline for today's politics. Not that I would criticize either the Ministry of Truth or the Ministry of Plenty - for which I thank them for their endless prolefeed. Criticism of RepublicanChristians™ goodthink, as I commented on another topic today, would be oldthink and be doubleplus ungood.
Hey, some say he's a real sweetheart of a guy.
nice way to put it booklover - hehe - be direct : )
He's equally enthusiastic about Chinese, Mohammedists, the Shintoists, the Communists, and I think I heard atheists, in the same context as Nazis. What a sweet guy!
But hey, Free Speech! Freedom of Religion!
I have also heard the whole thing is fake.
MIndy, I think he's making millions by being an a-hole.
By the way, what does the "a" stand for? I'm guessing aardvark.
Yep! Aardvark! ha ha.
I wouldn't let people think I was such a sick and horrible person for ANY amount of money!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
That's why he's rich and you are not. You have a conscience. He has Jesus.
I wish I could be rich AND have a conscience! lol
Susan, I read that too. Or watched it - that was Dusty.
Not safe for work -
So in the end, I guess we could call the Robertson family a kind of acting troupe - like the Kardashians, and the Marx brothers, maybe, and various groups of clowns. Who really knows how much is an act or put-on, and how much is real? Maybe the individuals involved don't know either. Acting posing as reality posing as acting posing as reality.
Gad, DON'T compare these losers with the Marx Brothers. Groucho, Chico, and Harpo were funny. These guys are just pathetic!
