Welcome to “This Week In Crazy,” The National Memo’s weekly update on the wildest attacks, conspiracy theories, and other loony behavior from the increasingly unhinged right wing. Starting with number five:

5. Phil Robertson

As ISIS continues to wage a campaign of terror across the Middle East, Fox News’ Sean Hannity turned to the one man who could explain the geopolitical crisis to Americans, and put our minds at ease: That homophobic guy from Duck Dynasty.

After warning Hannity never to leave his house without his Bible and his woman, “Duck Commander” Phil Robertson got to the meat of his argument about the terrorist group.

“In this case, you either have to convert them — which I think would be next to impossible,” Robertson said. “I’m not giving up on them, but I’m just saying either convert them or kill them. One or the other.”

Convert or die. Where have we heard that before?
