MSNBC: Duck Dynasty ‘part of a majority white supremacist culture’

MSNBC may have finally jumped the shark with the relentless race baiting that looks to be the weapon of last resort on a network where tolerance is clearly a one-way street.

On the same day that A&E announced the patriarch of the “Duck Dynasty” clan will be returning to the show, MSNBC contributor Michael Eric Dyson said Phil Robertson and Duck Dynasty is “part of a majority white supremacist culture that… incubates hatred toward those who are different.”

As a panelist on MSNBC’s “Now w/Alex Wagner,” Gregory Angelon, executive director of the Log Cabin Republicans, was advocating for a dialogue between left and right, saying “we’re getting into a dangerous point in this country right now, where it is almost an us versus them culture.”

Ignoring that there is an African-American president tasked with the execution of the law, and an African American heading up a Justice Department that has made it clear that minority issues take precedent, and the inherent bias in the American media toward these issues, Dyson responded:

It isn’t all created equal, you do know that. The mythology is that all interested parties should come to the table. But let’s not pretend that African-American people have had control of the law, where that they’ve indicated that Jim Crow was against poor white people.

There’s not an equality of means of representing your interests or means of asserting oppression. When we have this mythology of all come to the table, let’s at least be honest about who has been provided opportunity to get their viewpoint broadcast more broadly.

And Phil Robertson and the “Duck Dynasty” is part of a majority white supremacist culture that either consciously or unconsciously incubates hatred toward those who are different.
