Is that a threat? Duck Dynasty star Phil Robertson says “we have to rid the earth” of marriage equality supporters.
Introducing Cruz at a campaign rally on Sunday, the reality show patriarch attacked same-sex marriage as “wicked” and “evil,” while suggested that marriage equality supporters needed to be literally obliterated.
Robertson told the enthusiastic crowd:
Don’t you understand that when a fellow like me looks at the landscape and sees the depravity, the perversion — redefining marriage and telling us that marriage is not between a man and a woman? Come on Iowa! It’s nonsense. It is evil. It’s wicked. It’s sinful and they want us to swallow it.
We have to run this bunch out of Washington, D.C. We have to rid the earth of them. Get them out of there.
Cruz did not address Robertson’s hateful and dangerous remarks concerning gay marriage after taking the stage in Iowa City, but he did praise Robertson as a “voice of truth.”
Last month, in an ad released by the Cruz campaign, Robertson endorsed Ted Cruz for president because Robertson thinks Cruz is “Godly.”
