Nope, not making this up. From the article:
Embattled “Duck Dynasty” star Phil Robertson has been suspended from his show by A&E for his remarks about gays and African-Americans, and now some high-profile conservatives are rallying to his side and defending him. On Friday, GOP congressional candidate Ian Bayne went all in, comparing Robertson to civil rights icon Rosa Parks.
“In December 1955, Rosa Parks took a stand against an unjust societal persecution of black people, and in December 2013, Robertson took a stand against persecution of Christians,” Bayne said in an email to supporters.
Yeah, because a privileged multimillionaire who hates gays and wants God to send them all to Hell is exactly like an oppressed Black working woman who was tired of being oppressed.
Can we take up a collection to buy these Wingnut politicians and pundits a nice Christmas basket full of clues?
