Who knew Phil Robertson would win the coveted Andrew Breitbart Defender of the First Amendment Award from Citizens United? What an honor. He certainly used his speech to hate very well. I guess that's the criteria. Who can say the sickest, most vile things about center left Americans wins! Yippie!

He was in top form Friday after receiving the award and went on a monumentally weird rant about STD's, John Adams, Hippies, Speaker Boehner and the health of the US of A.

Duck Dynasty television star Phil Robertson told the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) on Friday that 110 million Americans were infected with sexually transmitted diseases and that it was “the revenge of the hippies.”

“I don’t want you to die early!” he exclaimed. “It you’re disease free and she’s disease free, you’re married, you keep your sex right there, you won’t get sick from a sexually transmitted disease! Come on!”

“There is a penalty to be paid from what the beatniks and it morphed into the hippies!” the Duck Commander continued. “What do you call the 110 million people who have sexually transmitted illnesses? It’s the revenge of the hippies! Sex, drugs and rock & roll have come back to haunt us! In a bad way!”

I wonder if he blames Ted Nugent for any of the STD decadence in America since he was a hippy back in the day?

Robertson hit on a number of popular right-wing talking points, including his allegiance to the Bible and his disdain for House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio).

"You lose your religion, according to John Adams, and there goes your morality. We're almost there," Robertson said.
