When a Duck might not be a Duck

Anyone who has read my blog for any length of time knows that I say, “Nothing we see on mainstream television is real. It’s all staged to bring about some change” with some goal in mind. Be it spreading some propaganda, stirring up some controversy or “programming” social norms.  In the recent scandal surrounding “Duck Dynasty” patriarch who made some statements about sin including being homosexual, I said it was quite possible it was all planned by the family to stop the show altogether; however, going back to the previous statement that all shows are staged propaganda, could it be more programming to stir up conservatives to be willing to push back now?

What if this Robertson family not long ago looked just like any average family in America?  You be the judge.  Could it be that being hicks from the sticks of Louisiana pays big money and it’s all an act?  Do these look like people living off the land from childhood who have always been camo wearing, squirrel eating country boys?

How A Wealthy, Clean-Cut ‘Duck Dynasty’ Tricked The World For Publicity

In the wake of the recent homophobia and racism scandals surrounding A&E’s popular so-called “reality” show Duck Dynasty, there is an important, little-known detail that should be remembered: it’s all fake… all of it.

Sources close to the show have time and time again leaked details that the show is literally scripted. Because of non-disclosure agreements, cameramen, and others who wish to go public with this information have proven unable to do so. As a result, without a name attached to such leaked information, many of these claims of inauthenticity are seen as lacking credibility.

But as the saying goes, “a picture is worth a thousand words.” One thing that the so-called “Duck Dynasty” family cannot deny are family pictures taken before their fabricated “reality” show was scripted for them. These pictures all showcase a family devoid of backwoods attire: no camouflage, no face paint, no headbands, and no beards.

In the place of Real Tree camo shotguns, we see the family above with golf clubs.

Below is the real Jase Robertson and Family. They look like any other clean-cut wealthy Caucasian family. Admittedly, we see a very trim, socially acceptable beard in this picture… nothing like the costumes the family dons for the popular A&E show.

Here are Jase and Missy Robertson. Jase is a whole lot hairier and a whole lot richer.

But Jase isn’t the only one pulling the proverbial wool over viewers’ eyes. Willie Robertson too used to look a whole lot more like everyone else in his socio-economic caste. Instead of camo, we see hair bleach. And we are supposed to believe that these were backwards hill-folk, who raised themselves up from the trailer park?

You’ve seen the before image, now here’s the after:

These guys aren’t alone with the fakery. Below is a picture of the real Jep Robertson and family.

Here’s Jep now, after the A&E treatment:

The costumes are for show, the beards and bandanas are for show – and more than likely, even the recent “scandals” are for show. We have recently learned that A&E will keep Phil Robertson even after previously announcing he would be kicked off the show for breach of contract, due to racist and homophobic comments. In all likelihood, the scandals were part of a well-orchestrated hoax to get even more ratings, even more attention, and ultimately, even more money for this already filthy-rich family.

Remember, that while this fake scandal was front page news, the NDAA was passed without a peep from the mainstream media. The bill which is infamous for its language regarding “disappearing” U.S. citizens and  indefinite detention was passed via “Fast-Tracking” while a huge number of Americans were distracted by the Phil Robertson “scandal.” Let’s stop giving this Schmuck Dynasty the attention and money that they so obviously don’t deserve.

  1. So you are saying the show is fake because they look different in the pictures that were obviously taken around a decade ago. How many of us look the same as we did 10 years ago? Or even 5? I used to have a shaved head and a braided goatee and now I am much heavier, balding, clean shaven, and Father of two little monsters. I don’t look like I used to and am not have the selfish ass I once was. But I guess that in your eyes I’m just a FAKE too.

    • I am saying their portrayal of themselves as back woods Louisiana folk is not true. These are smart businessmen who found a way to really market their product.

      If you cannot see this for what it is, then fine, but this is not some back woods dirt poor family that made duck calls. They were upper middle class and turned to looking like hicks and have become icons. I happen to like their message, but this is going to cause some heat on them.

  2. Much ado about nothing…

    The thing that keeps people watching is their personalities. I don’t watch the show, but I do like the family because the seem to be genuine people, unlike say, the Kardashians. Even the blog author likes their message. I knew they had money prior to A&E, but then again, it’s really none of my concern or business. I try to concentrate on my life and providing for my family, just like, say…they are doing (quite well) for theirs.

    Why is this controversial?

    Why do people care?

    Why can’t people concentrate on making sure their own lives are fulfilling?

    This seem like a left of center problem. Why does the left always seem to want to tell others how to live their life instead of worrying about their own?

    Very curious, this controversy. I wonder what important thing we should actually concern ourselves with is being overlooked because of this false uproar?

    Everyone has the power to turn off the television.

    • I think the reason this is getting play in the news is the apparent “non genuine” image of the family. I am fairly cynical at this point about anything that becomes news or takes national attention.

      I very much believe there are propaganda controllers who seek to control the debate, use distraction as needed to keep the masses corralled in one area.

      The push back over A&E’s actions against the patriarch is interesting. Is it a means to test how the salt of the earth folk are feeling these days? It doesn’t seem they are going to take much more this political correctness crap.

      Some people think nothing is planned, and others think everything is planned. This show is not real, it’s not meant to be, but American’s seem too stupid to understand that it’s a means of entertainment, marketing, and programming.

      Thanks for your reply. I do appreciate others sharing.
