Duck Call

Rochester, NY

#1 Dec 19, 2013
Either way, Phil Robertson, the patriarch in A&E's "Duck Dynasty," won't be duck calling on air anytime soon. The network suspended him after he made controversial remarks about gays and blacks in a magazine interview. Robertson told the interviewer that he never saw "the mistreatment of any black person" during his 67 years living in the south. In the January issue of GQ, Robertson says homosexuality is a sin and puts it in the same category as bestiality and promiscuity.

He is free to say whatever he wants!!! If he wants to make money, from TV, he needs to learn, to hedge his comments. I'm not saying he was right or wrong, just a little irresponsible.

Then he is not free and we are not free when the media controls what he says and what we hear.

No one stopped him from saying what he did as that is his right... however the A and E network does not have to give him the platform to talk about this issue.

He can say what he likes however there is a price to pay if he does...

He is free to say whatEVER he wants to say. However, cause issues for your employer by your free speech and accept the consequences. His employer also has the freedom to FIRE his ass. When will bigots ever learn?

The media is not controlling his freedom of speech. He is free to say it. The network is free to distance themselves from him if they disagree or distance themselves from him if they choose.

Comparing homosexuality to dog rape? He's only expressing his religious beliefs? He's never seen blacks unhappy during JimCrow? And conservative christians support this guy?

Watched the 700 Club last night. Left out Robertson"s black comments and dog rape comments. Just said homosexuality was a sin. Humm, guess they didn't have network time to include that part?

You can see people getting shot, stabbed and killed 24/7 on TV. The networks/movie studios have no worry about the violence on TV daily and in movie theaters. Its all going into young kids heads. But do not mention God, the 10 commandments or homosexuality.This is info that needs to be censored. Looks like Lucifer runs the networks and move theaters. The prince of the airways. He is doing a great job. It is no wonder we have all the shootings in schools and violence in the city streets. Its all from the the movie studios and networks. 90% of the network shows are trash. Lucifer is doing a wonderful job at destroying America. We will fall like Rome. A nation with no jobs, no money, drugs, violence and lost. Blacks and whites. Its all of America.

It's funny how our talking heads are so adapt at stiring up trouble for reality show people, but they fail to stir up that same kind of attention for Lois Lerner ... the woman in charge of the IRS who refused to resign when asked to for targeting conservative groups for IRS scrutiny.
A REAL media outlet would keep that controversy on the public radar until she was in jail!
But no, we have the corporate feed media that keeps the masses distracted!

The Cuntservatives spent $40 million of the Taxpayer's money to Investigating a President for investment fraud.
In the end all they came up with was, he likes his women and getting BJ's from a fat chic.

Now you cry foul when someone else does it to you. What comes around goes around.
Next election cycle hopefully the last of the Teabaggers left in Office. Will go the way of the Dodo bird.

Thing is though liberals as they define themselves today are the most intolerant and hateful of the bunch.
