He ducked up!

Post  fshnski on Thu Dec 19, 2013 5:18 pm

TV networks might claim they support free speech, but the suspension of “Duck Dynasty” star Phil Robertson shows that to be an utter lie. They only support free speech they agree with. Foul comments by MSNBC’s Martin Bashir take weeks to resolve, but utter your Christian beliefs in an inartful way and you are instantly suspended by A&E. This is just the latest example of media outlets bowing to the militant LGBT agenda that would remove all voices for traditional marriage from TV.

This isn’t a surprise. A&E created a show that tried to make fun of rustic rubes and discovered it had inadvertently created a show that celebrated non-Hollywood values of faith, family and freedom. It didn't mean to create a pro-family show. Just as in sitcoms like Beverly Hillbillies, the ‘rubes’ outsmarted the city folk. Now that it can’t hide that fact, it wants to punish the very stars it helped celebrate.

Remember, A&E has never been comfortable with the Robertson’s faith. Back in April, Phil Robertson said the network had even tried deleting mention of ‘Jesus’ from the family prayer.”

I have tried to watch Duck Dynasty but just can't get in to it. Maybe I should have started at the beginning? Does one of them own a beautiful mansion?

They had made millions selling duck calls before the show began. A & E knew all about this families' religious views for years. They became successful because they use common sense, faith and family values.

I knew about the selling of the duck calls. So have you ever seen the show? I think that mansion belongs to one of them.

Oh sure. It's a hoot. It's a nice wholesome show to watch. I saw that mansion show. It was fun to watch. I think it belongs to the guy in question.

A&E has also complained about the prayer.

Duck Dynasty clan hints they’ll quit over star slap

Post  fshnski on Fri Dec 20, 2013 7:05 am

A&E was hit by a 12-gauge “Duck Dynasty” backlash Thursday as religious and conservative groups denounced the network for suspending the reality show’s gay-bashing star — whose family suggested it could be the end.

Supporters of show patriarch Phil Robertson — who in a magazine interview compared homosexuality to bestiality — called for a boycott of the cable network.

“Phil Robertson and his family are great citizens of the state of Louisiana,” declared Bobby Jindal, the Republican governor of the state where the show is filmed. “The politically correct crowd is tolerant of all viewpoints, except those they disagree with.”

“It is a messed-up situation when Miley Cyrus gets a laugh and Phil Robertson gets suspended.”

Robertson’s comments prompted A&E to put him on “hiatus” Wednesday.

In a statement released Thursday night on the Web site duckcommander.com, the family hinted that if Robertson is kicked off the show, the entire clan of bearded, swamp-dwelling millionaires might pack up their duck calls and go home.

“Phil would never incite or encourage hate,” the statement said. “We have had a successful working relationship with A&E but, as a family, we cannot imagine the show going forward without our patriarch at the helm.”

The wildly popular series drew 11.8 million viewers in August, the most ever for a nonfiction cable show. The Robertsons become the darlings of conservatives around the world for their pro-business and pro-family views.

That's one way to move to another network and provide insulation against contract lawsuits.

"You will be made to care.

"This is a day and age where the government can order you to bake a cake, take photos, and provide lodging in the name of acceptance of homosexuality—and you’re not allowed to conscientiously object on religious grounds. In fact, your Constitutional rights to religious liberty and free speech will be taken away in order to make way for the new, make believe right to sexual deviancy.

This is no longer the America we were supposed to be, and it hasn’t been for quite some time. This is no longer about saving the republic. This is about restoring one..."
