Duck Dynasty dad Phil Robertson had some of his trademark Christian wisdom at the Western Conservative Summit in Denver, Colorado this weekend to help enlighten people how he knows Jesus is really the son of God.
“If your calendar is dated of all the human beings who have ever walked on the Earth, and your calendar is dedicated and predicated to just one of ’em, evidently something rather large went down,” Robertson explained.
That’s good to know, especially for worshipers of Roman gods like Janus and Mars, who are also immortalized in our calendars, dude.
As his speech continued, Robertson went down the rabbit hole of opposition to the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan after 9/11. He explained that 160,000 murders occurred. The reason for this, Robertson says, is because of the gay and transgender Americans.
“When you allow men to determine what’s right and what’s wrong, you get decisions like the five judges saying, ‘I may not know we have 7,000 years of history of men marrying women. A male and a female. For that reason, they’ll leave their father and mother and cleave to one and other and become one flesh. I know it’s been that way for 7,000 years, but we know best for what’s everybody.'” Robertson said criticizing the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision to legalize same-sex marriage last year.
Robertson also blames transgender people for the downfall of western civilization. “Now there’s grown men barging in on you ladies while you’re putting your Maybelline on,” he continued. “Here’s a newsflash, you see this,” he said, tugging on his beard. “This be male,” he said, clearly not having met a post-menopausal woman. He then pledged never to come into a lady’s restroom.

Trump blasted as ‘pathological liar’ for claiming stock market is ‘starting to look very good’ after 1,000 point crash
The COVID-19 coronavirus epidemic spreading across the world has present challenges for President Donald Trump.
In addition to the public health challenge facing the administration, Trump's 2020 reelection campaign is also faced with an economic crisis as the virus disrupts global supply chains.
"Investors around the world retreated from stocks and piled into haven assets including government bonds and gold, reflecting escalating worries that the coronavirus will disrupt the global economy," The Wall Street Journal reported Monday. "The Dow Jones Industrial Average dropped more than 1,000 points—its biggest point decline in more than two years; the yield on the benchmark 10-year Treasury note approached a record low; and gold prices climbed for the eighth straight session to a seven-year high."
Here are 11 of the most popular progressive policies for candidates to run on — and 5 of the least popular
New polling from the progressive pollster Data for Progress, described in a new piece Monday at Vox, points the way forward for Democrats looking to oust President Donald Trump from the White House and enact a liberal policy agenda.
Progressives often argue that their plans are broadly popular with Americans, and that these ideas are only prevented from becoming reality because of an obstinate Republican Party weaponizing racism and misinformation, archaic political institutions that stymie significant efforts at reform, and corruption across the two parties that allows special and corporate interests to undermine the popular will. And there is a fair amount of truth in this idea — some progressive idea are remarkably popular, and there's no good reason they haven't been implemented yet.
