On Fox News with Sean Hannity, Duck Dynasty’s patriarch Phil Robertson appeared to promote his new book, unPHILtered: The Way I See It. And during the conversation he, in no uncertain terms, described what should happen to members of the Islamic State (ISIS) terror organization.
Convert them or kill them. One or the other.
It’s not like our country with a standing army, and we line up and do battle with a certain amount of rules. […]This is more like world wide gang warfare. I think… we’re going to have to deal with this group way more harshly than we have up until this point.
Hannity knew how explosive these comments are, and gave Robertson a chance to re-state his tough position. But Robertson responded boldly, noting that he would always rather find common ground in faith with an enemy, but this opponent is looking for a gun fight:
I would rather preach the gospel of Jesus to them, however, if it’s a gun fight, and a gun fight alone, if that’s what they’re looking for, me, personally I’m prepared for either one.
If only we had a State Department and President who was so clear about out to deal with evil.
