You do not have to have an inherently political business to align yourself with a tribe. While it might not seem like a family business making duck calls lends itself to conservative Christianity, the reason the patriarch of Duck Dynasty kept his job was because he aligned himself with a very large, loyal, and vocal Christian fanbase.

Find your tribe?
Oh, like folks do in prison, as a matter of simple survival?

Capt: I reckon you used the prison metaphor for lack of a better comparison, but I wouldn't think to associate Duck Dynasty with criminals.
A sorta similar thing happens on construction sites, where the electricians hang out with other electricians, the tin knockers with their guys, carpenters with other carpenters, so forth. When I was on active duty the troops sorted themselves out in groups by race, rank, MOS, and everyone was happy with that.
Strength in numbers. When the SHTF or the Apocalypse gets here or whatever it will be prudent if we can unite with other folks that have similar values and interests. Hmm, just think: all the bloggers and commenters can hang out together looking at dead computer screens and flinging witty bon mots at each other.

This is why The Left has worked for decades to get Whites, and only Whites, to abandon self-interest and advance everyone else, pronounced Leftists, agenda.
