Craziest Republican of the Day: Ian Bayne (for comparing Phil Robertson to Rosa Parks)

By Michael J.W. Stickings 

Yes, seriously.

This idiot, who's running for the Republican nomination in Illinois's 11th Congressional District, said that Duck Dynasty's bigot-patriarch Phil Robertson is just like Rosa Parks:

Today, Ian Bayne called Phil Robertson, star of the A&E series "Duck Dynasty," the 'Rosa Parks' of our generation.

"In December 1955, Rosa Parks took a stand against an unjust societal persecution of black people, and in December 2013, Robertson took a stand against persecution of Christians," said Bayne.

"What Parks did was courageous," said Bayne. "What Mr. Robertson did was courageous too."

Right, because Christians today are facing totally the same situation that blacks were in the '50s. I mean, Christians can't vote, can't drink at non-Christians' water fountains, and face discrimination pretty much in every aspect of society. Plus, there are those anti-Christian lynch mobs roaming the countryside and terrorizing everyone, setting churches on fire and basically making sure that poor Christians live in abject fear every moment of their lives.

I mean, totally.

Except that, you know, Rosa Parks was fighting against bigotry and discrimination whereas Phil Robertson was identifying Christianity with bigotry and discrimination.

And of course Robertson didn't just say bigoted things about gays, he also said incredibly ignorant things about how blacks were supposedly all happy in pre-civil rights Louisiana, because apparently institutionalized bigotry and discrimination is some sort of panacea for him.

Obviously, Ian Bayne is too fucking stupid, his head stuck firmly up his right-wing ass, to get the point. 


And if that weren't enough, check out the "About Ian" page at his website, which includes this gem:

Ian Bayne's resume resembles that of a founding father more than a contemporary American professional.

Seriously. He's a fucking idiot, but obviously a deeply delusional and egomaniacal one as well. He's crazily stupid even by the standards of crazily stupid Republicans.

  • During every interview Republicans should be asked to whom Phil Robertson most resembles; St. Paul, Rosa Parks, or Gandhi?

    Bonus points if they reference St Cyril, St. Jerome, President Obama, or Malcolm X.
