Phil Robertson of “Duck Dynasty” fame posted a video to Twitter on Sunday that made fun of “city millennials” and their lack of physical work experience.
Robertson also had a novel idea that would help unemployment that he called “Adopt A Redneck.”
In the video, Robertson hires a “redneck” named Red to smooth over a dirt road with a bulldozer, which inspired him to give the viewers a lesson in redneck economics.
Watch what he had to say in the video below.
Here’s what he said in the video:
“I told [Red] on this job, I said ‘I’ll give you a crisp $100 bill. Go down there and smooth them holes out.’ So that’s what’s on the line here, a crisp $100 bill. All rednecks will move if you say ‘a crisp $100 bill.’ They move [slaps car door] right there. ‘What do you want me to do?’
“So there’s always a labor force. Red’s skillset is numerous. He was trained by his grandpa. That generation worked him. Red, he doesn’t get much work out of his kids, nope. Millennials... Even redneck millennials.
“City millennials, they’re too worried about diversity and safe spaces. You can’t get anything out of them. They don’t want to work, they just want to move their fingers on computers. That’s as strenuous as these city millennials get right here [wiggles fingers]. The only thing they move is just right here [mimics typing with beeping noises].
“If it lasts, in another thousand years they’re going to have big ol’ heads, big eyes–millennials have huge eyes–and big ol’ round cone heads. It just makes your head get bigger, but that’s the only thing that grows–just your cranium. Everything else shrinks. That’s where we’re headed. I’ll take redneck millennials over city millennials any day of course.
“I keep Red on a retainer where I keep him a little money every month. He’s one who used to be on food stamps, used to be on welfare. No more of that. I got him off all of that. Now he works. But I keep him a little retainer. So I’d rather keep a man on a retainer, that way when I call him, he’ll move. If I didn’t have the retainer, he’d be like, ‘Eh, I don’t know…’
“But I got him some money coming in so even if he’s not doing anything, I got him a little cash coming in–to him a substantial amount. It’s what you call ‘helping your neighbor.’ Work ethic is built into him. So the government, he’s off the government’s rolls.
“Now everybody in America that has the wherewithal needs to, in this case, adopt a redneck. We’ll put it on a big sign, march on Washington, ‘Adopt A Redneck.’”
Words of wisdom from Phil Robertson!
