Phil Robertson, patriarch of the popular show “Duck Dynasty,” delivered a one-of-a-kind speech to a crowd of conservatives after winning a free speech award at the Conservative Political Action Conference.
Robertson’s unique analogies and storytelling sparked some colorful Twitter banter for those following the event.
Who better to win the “Andrew Breitbart Defender of the First Amendment Award” than a guy who unabashedly will say anything – and everything – that comes to mind?
One thing is for certain, Robertson makes no apologies for who he is and what he believes. He started his unique speech by pulling out his well-used Bible – then he started blowing minds.

Robertson really ruffled liberal feathers when he began to talk hippies and sexual transmitted diseases. His comments were flamboyant and for many, a little strange.
First mention of genital herpes at #CPAC2015

Remember, no one gave Robertson the comedian-of-the-year award. But then, things went on, and on, and…
We are off the rails at #CPAC2015. Sexually transmitted diseases?

“We had no idea the celebrity we invited to this event would go off the rails” – apparently every conservative organizer #CPAC2015

Everyone in my row giggling. RT @JimPethokoukis: This Duck Dynasty guy is really energizing the CPAC crowd. Electric. Crackling.

Phil Robertson of “Duck Dynasty” is talking about the Founding Fathers and STDs and I’m guessing he won’t be invited to the ’16 convention.
