One more time, everybody, all together: “Bull-F***ING-S***”. Phil Robertson is not a victim: he is a multimillionaire with an enormous estate, an entrepreneur and tireless self-promoter who has worked hard to earn his considerable riches. He is a shrewd manipulator of people and this writer would not be at all surprised if this recent blowup turned out to be a huge, carefully scripted publicity stunt. You know, like the whole Duck Dynasty media behemoth.

The beards, the redneck schtick? All scripted and perfectly crafted to sell in the current market. This family made millions of dollars before the TV show, and looked like the friggin’ Romneys:

Yep, yuppies. That was the Robertson clan when they WEREN’T acting. But they are acting now.

And actors play parts. Salesmen sell products. That means, Gentle Reader, that you can’t take anything Phil says at face value. He is ACTING. And he is SELLING. So maybe he meant all that revolting s*** he spewed, maybe not, but there is a strong likelihood that it was all done on purpose, to create a buzz and increase ratings.

No way is Phil Robertson a victim. He is shrewd, wealthy and powerful, and is set for life. You want to talk victims? How about the veterans who are getting their pensions and bennies cut, or the kids that lost their food stamps and are now even hungrier?

Those are REAL victims. Phil is not one of them.

On Edit: Thanks to a friend who found this article from earlier this year, in which Phil announced his likely departure from the show: http://m.usmagazine.com/entertainment/news/duck-dynastys-phil-robertson-i-wont-do-the-show-much-longer-2013267

Makes it seem even more likely that this is all just a publicity stunt. B&C

So, the NRA forced a vendor to take down a bleeding Obama target that they were displaying on the floor at the recent NRA convention. . The vendor will still sell you one of these “zombies” that bleed when you shoot them, but they are hidden from view. So, yeah, the NRA and the vendor in question are totally down with the whole assassination and sedition thing, yup.

You can also buy “The Ex”, a lingerie-clad bleeding target so you can pretend to brutally murder a woman what done you wrong a zombie that looks nothing at ALL like a human being, nonono, notatALL, why, how could you even suggest such a thing. So, the NRA is down with the whole “kill those damn bitches” thing too, yup .

Between promoting Assassination and spousal abuse , it’s a wonder the NRA has time to focus on our Second Amendment rights. Oh, wait, that’s right: they don’t care about that stuff anymore.

Oh, by the bye: you can see pictures of both targets, pre- and post-shot to s***, by clicking the links. This writer chose to spare your stomach, but go right ahead and click it you like,
