Wella, wella, wella! The Duck crew has added to their product line. Partnering with Mossberg, Duck Commander, the company founded by Phil Robertson will begin marketing line firearms that will include “nine different shotguns, as well as two semiautomatic rifles and a semiautomatic pistol.”
Now, I have nothing against firearms, hunting, or ducks. In fact I admire individuals who take a risk and in the process create a successful business and become fabulously wealthy. After all, it is the American dream and it is the American way.
What I do have something against is racism, bigotry, and the belief that a man should marry an adolescent girl before she reaches the age of 15 or 16. All of which Phil Robertson has made clear he is in support of.
So, in as much as I admire business acumen and the desire and ability to make money I cannot abide supporting Duck Commander, Phil Robertson, or his family endeavor. I personally will NEVER by anything product marketed by Duck Commander and urge everyone of sane mind to BOYCOTT Duck Dynasty and ALL of its products. Give your business to the one of their competitors. Principle and real American values do, after all, matter.
