The Duck Dynasty guy said some things about gay people that were trivial and dumb, but he premised it on some statements about civil rights that deserve more attention. TNC:
The belief that black people were at their best when they were being hunted down like dogs for the sin of insisting on citizenship is a persistent strain of thought in this country. What it ultimately reflects is inability to cope with America that is at least rhetorically committed to equality. One can quickly see the line from this kind of thinking, to a rejection of the civil rights movement of our age[.]
Funny how the constant threat of violent murder with no protection from the law makes people so polite and deferential.
Anyone who misses those ‘good old days’ is dumb or deranged.
