What do liberals tend to hate the most?
Is it successful business owners? Is it public prayer? Is it citizens who support our veterans? Gun owners?
It’s hard to tell which one of these attributes will send a liberal scurrying to their “safe space” the fastest… But when the man who embodies all of these characteristics leads a crowd in prayer on national television, it’s guaranteed to ruin their day.
And that’s exactly what Duck Dynasty’s Phil Robertson did at the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series’ race in Texas.
In his pre-race prayer he asked God to, “put a Jesus man in the White House.”
You can watch the video below and see why his prayer outraged the liberal movement:
“Alright Texas, we got here via Bibles and guns. I’m fixing to pray to the one who made that possible.
Father thank you for founding our nation. I pray father that we don’t forget who brought us. You. Our faith in the blood of Jesus and his resurrection.
Help us father to get back to that. Help us dear God understand that the men and women on my right, the U.S. military. On my right and on my left.
Our faith in you and the U.S. military is the reason we’re still here.
I pray Father that we put a Jesus man in the White House. Help us do that and help us all to repent to do what’s right to love you more and to love each other.
In the name of Jesus we pray. Amen.”
Duck Commander, which was founded by Phil Robertson, also sponsored the NASCAR race.
Of course, this isn’t the first time he’s provoked liberal outrage.
In 2013, Robertson was indefinitely suspended from A&E’s Duck Dynasty for his candid views regarding homosexuality:
“Start with homosexual behavior and just morph out from there. Bestiality, sleeping around with this woman and that woman and that woman and those men…
Don’t be deceived. Neither the adulterers, the idolaters, the male prostitutes, the homosexual offenders, the greedy, the drunkards, the slanderers, the swindlers—they won’t inherit the kingdom of God. Don’t deceive yourself. It’s not right…
We just love ’em, give ’em the good news about Jesus—whether they’re homosexuals, drunks, terrorists. We let God sort ’em out later, you see what I’m saying?”
A&E lifted the suspension after receiving a tidal wave of backlash.
The Robertsons have never been shy about sharing their faith or political views. At the end of each Duck Dynasty episode, the show concludes with a prayer – usually saying grace around their dinner table.
Phil and his son Willie also endorsed their former Governor Bobby Jindal for president earlier in the election cycle.
They would eventually differentiate on their presidential picks when Jindal’s campaign failed to gain any significant traction.
Willie, the CEO of Duck Commander, endorsed fellow businessman Donald Trump while Phil endorsed Ted Cruz, respectively.
