Duck Dynasty cast member poses with AR-15 while boasting Bible will ‘stop human beings from murdering’

Published

on

A member of the Duck Dynasty clan plopped a video on his Facebook page Monday night, showing off an assault rifle before claiming that the Bible is the greatest defense against murder.

In the video, the patriarch of the reality show that featured camouflaged duck call manufacturing millionaires dispensing down-home homilies about Jesus and hunting, the camera slow-pans over Phil Robertson’s AR-15 being setting on the TV star sitting in a camouflage easy chair holding  in a Bible.

“So I have here an earthly weapon. It’s a firearm. I would never want to use that against another man,” Robertson explains as the camera focuses on the weapon.

“This is also a weapon. It’s called a sword — the sword of the spirit. You want to stop murder worldwide? You’re focusing on the wrong weapon, he continues as he picks up a Bible held together with duct tape.”

“This, this will stop human beings from murdering one another,” he adds as he ends the lesson on bringing gun violence to an end.

You want to stop murder worldwide? You’re focusing on the wrong weapon. [Picks up Bible] This, this will stop human beings from murdering one another.”

"A neo-Nazi group focused on providing paramilitary-style training to far-right extremists has been conducting a massive recruitment drive and claims to have already conducted live-fire training with its members," Vice News reports.

"The Base, which is connected to extreme-right groups the Atomwaffen Division and the Feuerkrieg Division, has been promoting its growth on social media with photos announcing its presence in major cities across North America, including New York, Los Angeles, and Seattle, and in Europe, South Africa, and Australia," Vice reported. "The images often include a small contingent (typically one to three) of masked, camo-clad men holding weapons standing in front of The Base's flag, a black flag with three white lines running down the centre."

‘Not surprised at all that the president sides with the white nationalists’: Native American Congresswoman

Published

on

One of the first two Native America women blasted President Donald Trump for siding with white nationalists on Saturday.

Following the fatal "Unite the Right" rally in Charlottesville in 2017, Trump claimed there were "fine people" on both sides when he defended the alt-Right and Neo-Nazi event.

Two years later, Trump has gone even further, blaming only the anti-fascist activists confronting far-right marching in Portland, Oregon in a way that reminds many of the invasion of Charlottesville.

Rep. Deb Haaland (D-NM) was asked about Trump's tweet by CNN's Ana Cabrera.
