The members of the Robertson clan – the family made famous by the reality series “Duck Dynasty” – are many things. They are fun-loving outdoor enthusiasts. They are devout Christians. And, they are also very proud Americans.
Recently, Si Robertson, who is lovingly referred to as “Uncle Si” by most of the family, shared his thoughts about the United States of America. He did so during a recent episode of the “Duck Call Room” podcast. This week, a clip from the podcast of Uncle Si talking about his home country was shared on his personal Instagram page.
In the clip, Si first addresses how his home country is portrayed in the media.
“The media – all they ever report is bad stuff. So, it’ll give you a negative view of America,” the “Duck Dynasty” star says.
Next, Uncle Si praises his home. “Hey, look. America is still the greatest country in the world,” he adds.

“The media won’t report this, but America is still the greatest country in the world,” Uncle Si also says. “There are a lot of people out there doing good things for other people. It’s just not being reported.”
