West appeared on the hit show Real Time with Bill Maher recently and said, “Who shops at the Hallmark Store? Who’s smoking all the meth? Who’s watching Duck Dynasty?”
He then added, “it’s a reality show about rednecks who make duck calls? It gets higher ratings than 30 Rock or Homeland and I can’t prove they’re white and stupid, but someone’s watching it…and it ain’t Cornel West.”
This really offended me and it’s not just because Cornel and Si look like Pinky and I. Well, maybe the second part is why. I fucking love Si.
“Some of the most profound things you’ll see comes from kids. They’re gonna say what they feel and what they mean.”
Is that stupid? Yes they’re a bunch of rednecks who make duck calls but they’re also a gigantic family that noticed one of their kids was really into business so they sent him to business school. Here he is with his high school sweetheart whom he ended up marrying.
After he graduated, he patented his dad’s brilliant duck calls and turned it into an empire. He then hired his whole family. His dad grew up with no electricity eating bullfrogs and getting honey out of trees. Now they’re all rich because they made smart decisions and worked hard. So fuck you Cornel West. You don’t know sheet.
