Cruz touts “duck commander” for UN post, as Robertson rails against gay marriage and atheists

by Todd J. Gillman  |  published on February 20, 2016

Ted Cruz, battling for second place in South Carolina, barnstormed the state Friday with the “duck commander,” a Bible-thumping, gun toting reality TV star Cruz envisions as a diplomat.

“Imagine Phil Robertson as the ambassador to the United Nations,” Cruz told a raucous crowd of several hundred backers at an airplane hangar in West Columbia, “How much would you pay to see that? Can you just imagine sitting in the UN general assembly, the Russian ambassador says something, he leans over and says `Well that doesn’t make any sense at all!’ ”

Evangelical Christians account for nearly two-thirds of the GOP electorate in South Carolina, and Roberts, patriarch of the “Duck Dynasty” family, is popular with religious conservatives. As a bonus, he’s also a vocal gun rights advocate – overlapping blocs that are critical to Cruz’s chances of staying ahead of Marco Rubio.

Donald Trump is a prohibitive favorite in South Carolina.

    Gillmand writes for the Dallas Morning News. That is a paper well known for supporting Democrats and liberals.
    And this article reflects that very well.

    • Upaces

      Give us an example. WE don’t know you so we need to see “proof.”

      • ADRoberts

        I lived in Arlington. I know. If you want proof, subscribe to the Dallas Mornng News. But then, you probably would get along fine with them.

  • ADRoberts

    The writer of this article was trying to ridicule and make fun of all of this.
    Yes, I can imagine Duck Commander as a UN ambassador. You apparently have not paid much attention to how smart, rich, and highly capable he really is
    The thing that might get in his way is the loss of duck hunting.
    Amazing how little those who pretend to be conservative know about those who really are conservative.
    To the writer of this article. Go back to HufPost.

    Don Juvenile is simply prohibitive. I will gladly vote for Ted Cruz!

    You are off you’re perch lady. I’m not adulterating anyone – just stating that what if he garners Christian votes – so much the better, but in the end, it is the man that may, and in my opinion, is qualified to be our president. This is politics and our candidates are fighting against Obama puppets who stoop at nothing,

    • Upaces

      When you USE the name of Jesus Christ to run for Office of the President ot the United States, that PERSON is adulterating God and Christ. The old defintition of “Adulterate” means: To taint, To soil; to use.

      • Janthony132

        Our country’s motto is: “In God We Trust” I don’t think the Lord is offended – why should you?

        • Upaces

          When someone uses Religion as a political gain? Yes, I do take acception to that.

          LIVE the “Christ-Like” way and you don’t even have to mention it…people recognize it.

    I would say that Phil Robertson of the Duck Commander would be a really good Ambassador to the UN. Phil is a well educated man. He has three college degrees and tells it like it is. Maybe he could get rid of the UN. He is not Susan Rice or the other dumbo that took her place.

  • TeaTephi

    I don’t have much respect for the Evangelical vote, since in past elections they widely endorsed Obumer.

    • Janice Farrell

      Not True

      • Upaces

        Go to Google. It hurts, I know….do you want the truth; OR, believe him without question?

    • Upaces

      He plays the part of what he wants us to believe. It is SO wrong to adulterate God and Christ by using them in his political campaigns.

      Why Ted Cruz is losing Evangelical voters in South Carolina…

  • Sherylynne

    Vote Cruz, if you have not been lied to and manipulated enough yet. He can promise you another 4 years of same ole same ole. Please…no more politicians!

    • Upaces

      THANK YOU!!!

  • Luke

    Well todd gullman you can stick your insults about Christians up your obama..

  • Sherylynne

    Typical politician. Already “selling” appointments for votes. Cruz, Jeb, Rubio and Kasich need to go!

  • Danny

    It would be interesting to see a shake-up at the UN

    • ATexasGirl10

      I vote for getting it our of America for good by disbanding the good for nothing organization.

      • Danny

        Got it!! This would be a great move. All it wants is to bring down America. Obama’s partner in crime.

    • Thomas

      It would be more interesting to see someone say to the UN “Your Fired”.

  • Upaces

    Cruz STOP using Christianity. We have caught you in one too many lies, and tricks. Doing that? You ARE adulterating Jesus Christ himself by using HIM in your own political gains trying to get the Christian vote?!

    • Janthony132

      Get serious! Whatever it takes, this is the true conservative.

      • Upaces

        TO adulterate the name of Jesus Christ for Politial gain?

        You are like Cruz. You have no ethics.

        • Janice Farrell

          SC,just voted TED CRUZ

          • ATexasGirl10

            I will vote for Ted Cruz on Super Tuesday. I helped vote him in for Texas Senator, one of the best decision I ever made.

        • ADRoberts

          Again. What are you talking about, “adulterate”. Never heard it before. But for sure, it is a poor effort to smear Cruz. IT DID NOT WORK.
          Now about those “ETHICS”. You will hve to answer for supporting a guy who was a strong supporter of abortion and only changed that supposed position just before he announced. And he STILL supports Planned Parenthood.
          YOU are a hypocrite.

        • ADRoberts

          Strange. Trump-ets seem to be unable to help themselves. They are determined that if you don’t support the Trojan Horse Trump, you must be a flaming liberal. LOL NOT.

    • ATexasGirl10

      You are wrong about Ted Cruz and Christianity. Get your facts straight.

    • ADRoberts

      You show your lack of real Christianity. But you show yourself to be a real TRUMP-ET.
      You stop defending Christianity. You are giving us a bad name.
      Now I will point out that at least Cruz knows to call it SECOND CORINTHIANS. Trump; is so out of it that he does not know how it is referred to. And you want to lambast Cruz for his faith? LOL
      Now what in the world is “ADULTRATING” One more indication that you don’t know what you are talking about.
      By the way. We Christians have identified him as the best candidate. he already has our vote. And IF you had any knowledge of the outstanding Christians of our time, you would know who Dr. James Dobson is and that he has endorsed Cruz.
      YOU LOST.

    • Greg137

      Upaces you aren’t winning any arguments here… Christians have the right to have a candidate they can identify with!!! Your kind is part of the problem, “how dare Christians get involved with politics!” Take your hate elsewhere you arhiest chump… I am a Christian An I think it is good a someone like me can have a candidate I can Identify with… Unlike that liar Trump who used Democrat votes to win… Democrats won’t win him the state in the general election… All he did was anger the Republican base voters… Which is something you should never do in a primary as the people you offended might stay home!!!! it will be 2012 and 2008 all over again!!! Trump supports the FBI making cell-phones less safe… He also supports planned parenthood…

      • Upaces

        Who cares what you think! We all have our opiions and free speech here

        I NEVER SAID Christians shouldn’t get involved. You are twisting my comment to fit your agenda. That is NOT what I said.

        Why is it that he never talked about his Christianty BEFORE running for president. OR, if in an interview, a commentator asks him about his faith. Had he? I wouldn’t feel the way I do.

        It hurts me inside for someone running for the Nation’s Highest Seat to bring up Jesus Christ for political tool and gain?!

        Now! It would be different if he was sitting around with “everyone in the room talking aout their Faith.”

        As usualy, “CRUZ PEOPLE are always toxic and instead of discussing issues,….you twist them in an OTT manner.
