Anti-gay racist Phil Robertson unsurprisingly harbors vile misogyny too. In footage recovered from a 2009 Christian retreat, the reality TV personality advised men to marry 15-year-old women.

“Look, you wait ‘til they get to be 20 years old the only picking that’s going to take place is your pocket. You got to marry these girls when they are about 15 or 16. They’ll pick your ducks," said Robertson, who married his wife when she was just 16. Watch the clip below (h/t HuffPo):
