“Duck Dynasty” Patriarch Phil Robertson Supports Bathroom Bills: American Values “Under Full Assault”

"Just because a man may ‘feel’ like a woman doesn’t mean he should be able to share a bathroom with my daughter," says the reality star.

Bigoted Duck Dynasty patriarch Phil Robertson was feeling left out in the debate about so-called “bathroom bills” banning trans people from using facilities that match their gender identity, so he’s teamed up with Citizens United to get the word out about a “radical idea.”

“The Judeo-Christian values that led America to greatness are under full assault by the mob mentality of political correctness, and we’re slowly losing our soul,” Robertson wrote in a fundraising email for the right-wing lobbying group.

“Men should use the men’s bathroom and women should use the women’s bathroom,” he declared. “Just because a man may ‘feel’ like a woman doesn’t mean he should be able to share a bathroom with my daughter, or yours. That used to be called common sense. Now it’s called bigoted.”

At the bottom of the email is a link to StandTallWithPhil.org, a campaign aimed at preserving “religious freedom” in America, which the groups believes is under attack.

Right, because people are telling Christians where to pee?
