“Seven Days In May”

The suspension of Phil Robertson from A&E’s Duck Dynasty is outrageous in a nation that values freedom, according to social critic and openly gay, dissident feminist Camille Paglia.

“I speak with authority here, because I was openly gay before the ‘Stonewall rebellion,’ when it cost you something to be so. And I personally feel as a libertarian that people have the right to free thought and free speech,” Paglia, a professor at the University of the Arts in Philadelphia, said on Laura Ingraham’s radio show Thursday.

“In a democratic country, people have the right to be homophobic as well as they have the right to support homosexuality — as I one hundred percent do. If people are basing their views against gays on the Bible, again they have a right of religious freedom there,” she added.

Robertson has been suspended from Duck Dynasty due to comments he made to GQ that have been deemed “anti-gay.” According to Paglia, the culture has become too politically correct.

“To express yourself in a magazine in an interview — this is the level of punitive PC, utterly fascist, utterly Stalinist, OK, that my liberal colleagues in the Democratic Party and on college campuses have supported and promoted over the last several decades,” Paglia said.“This is the whole legacy of free speech 1960’s that have been lost by my own party.”

Paglia went on to point out that while she is an atheist she respects religion and has been frustrated by the intolerance of gay activists.

“I think that this intolerance by gay activists toward the full spectrum of human beliefs is a sign of immaturity, juvenility,” Paglia said.“This is not the mark of a true intellectual life. This is why there is no cultural life now in the U.S. Why nothing is of interest coming from the major media in terms of cultural criticism. Why the graduates of the Ivy League with their A, A, A+ grades are complete cultural illiterates, etc. is because they are not being educated in any way to give respect to opposing view points.”

“There is a dialogue going on human civilization, for heaven sakes. It’s not just this monologue coming from fanatics who have displaced the religious beliefs of their parents into a political movement,” she added.“And that is what happened to feminism, and that is what happened to gay activism, a fanaticism.”

Actually, nobody has "lost" their right to free speech, as there has been no government intervention in the hullabaloo whatsoever.

I have a problem with this rights thing.

everyone has the right to marriage. period.

if you are expanding on the definition, start a LLC.

That simple.

next problem please.....move on

freedom of speech is the 1st Bill in the Bill of Rights.

People should keep their noses out of other peoples private life. That is why it is called private.

"People should keep their noses out of other peoples private life." Yet, you care if two men marry each other. Outstanding.

Trayvon Jethro....glad you're listending and supporting Paglia and that your scope goes beyond Faux News, World Net Daily and Breitbart.

Even though she may be absolutely wrong on this topic, esp. since there was NOT a first amendment violation (it was a private employer and NOT the government) and it wasn't JUST about homosexuality as his words also claimed blacks were happy and singing during Jim Crow oppression, it's good to know that you can appreciate an Ivy League scholar in all her, umm, wisdom...... For a woman who claims: "My problem is that I do not get along with lesbians at all. They don’t like me, and I don’t like them." I guess it just goes to show that she can be a little out of step with other progressives, men or women.

Now I suppose you'll also agree with her when she says:
{http://thoughtcatalog.com/mad ison-moore/2013/08/the-37-most -hilarious-ridiculous-camille- paglia-quotes-of-all-time/}

"Gay men are guardians of the masculine impulse. To have anonymous sex in a dark alleyway is to pay homage to the dream of male freedom. The unknown stranger is a wandering pagan god. The altar, as in pre-history, is anywhere you kneel."

or

"Straight men who visit prostitutes are valiantly striving to keep sex free from emotion, duty, family–in other words, from society, religion, and procreative Mother Nature."

or (gasp!) even:

"Pornography is now beyond anyone’s control. It’s a classic example of ever-controversial unregulated capitalism — the market automatically responding to individual needs and desires. I continue to support and defend pornography, which I believe exposes the deepest, darkest truths about sexuality."

If you're going to accept her into your wheelhouse, Jethro, you best be ready to stand behind her in all her glory.......

Typical black trash..."agree with everything or your position is illegitimate." That's the game you play to spit on black conservatives.
Here's a newsflash...I don't agree 100% with some members of my own family, Rastus. But I still respect them. And I respect Paglia for her views on this matter.
As the newbie idiot you are, I dare you to find any posts from me concerning prostitution or pornography. You haven't a clue about my feelings on those subjects. But you sure think all white conservatives are of a single mind. You're just as wrong about that as you are about blacks.

No. I don't. Private corporations like the one that operates A&E are free to do whatever they please.

That may or may not be true, but it doesn't change the fact that A&E can do whatever the heck it pleases, Paco. Kinda like the Catholic Church, ya know?

Oh, I agree wholeheartedly with you. I recognize that you right wingers like to cherry pick which facts, information or viewpoints that fir your narrative vs. the truth or reality. It's exactly the same thing that you (and the hilljack duck killer) do with the Bible.

As far as the spitting on black conservatives is concerned, you need not worry your pretty little head about that. I wouldn't p-ss on 'em if they were on fire.....They are the true devil fo r consorting and cowtowling to the likes of rural miscreants like yourself and the Duck Dynasty crew and I think they deserve every ounce of disrespect they've earned. Just like you, fool......
