Another Day, Another Republican Draws A Comparison Between A Redneck and a Civil Rights Hero

I shouldn't be surprised at this, but I still am for some reason:

On Friday, GOP congressional candidate Ian Bayne went all in, comparing [Duck Dynasty star Phil Robertson] to civil rights icon Rosa Parks.

"In December 1955, Rosa Parks took a stand against an unjust societal persecution of black people, and in December 2013, Robertson took a stand against persecution of Christians," Bayne said in an email to supporters.

"What Parks did was courageous," he added. "What Mr. Robertson did was courageous too."
As Hunter points out, the comparison is especially risible considering Robertson appears to be the type of person who thought that Rosa Parks and her ilk ruined everything with their struggle for equal rights and all.

Anyway, if Phil Robertson is Rosa Parks, then which right-wing hero is Martin Luther King? George Zimmerman?
