Even though as a proud Tea Party member I support the bigoted views of Phil Robertson,I must say there's a bigger picture here that's even more important and relevant. A&E has every right to rid themselves of Phil Robertson for any reason they wish. To constrain the corporate efforts of A&E as to their choice of dismissing Phil and/or the show is tantamount to communism. Corporate interests shall never be constrained.
What's good for corporate America is good for America as a whole.
If it's any consolation to Phil Robertson,I believe the man is entitled to a bigger taxbreak.
Even though I am a mindless sheep, the Obamacrat liberals and I will continue to support the attacks on freedom of speech and the bill of rights. We will continue the divide of this country with racism and hate. We like to say that the conservatives have hate but it is actually us liberals who have the hate. We hate whites, nonobama supporters, straight people and educated free thinkers. It is our socialist communist Marxist nazi antichristian beliefs that we abide by. We will continue to drive each person to be under government control and dependency. America will be the new Sodom and Gomorrah if we have our way.

<quoted text>You mean anti pervert,you can't be a bigot with a "choice" of being gay.These people didn't come from the land of "HOMO"I know that the left wants everyone whose dead in the head to believe that these people were "born" this way.Yea !,and so were murderers,theives,liars,mugger s,etc.Gays are just a tool of the left to further their Socialist agenda upon America.And if they accomplish that,they they will imprison gays like every other leftist country does.Rigfht now there are sixteen states that will marry them,as soon as the rest give in,it will be the law of the land.And every church will have to marry them or lose their tax exemption,and that is how the left intends to close down every church in America.Being gay is not an ethnic group,it's a choice!,and if you believe anything else you have been FOOLED by the Left.We all do in liffe what we choose,only animals are born with predetermined ablities like being able to build a nest etc.We humans learn just about everything we do in life,so being born gay is totally a fabrication by the left to further their agenda by using the homo's.,and everyother community it has created over the years.And you can tell how tolerant the left is,by the actions they take to silence anyone who opposes their view.They preach tolerance only if you agree with them,and thats Communism 101....
I love socialism, Gays, and Obama.

I hate KKK, Duck biters, tea baggers, and republican child molesters.

Lets get this party started and have revolution NOW!!!

That's not true. 75% of you and your kin will lose quickly from stupid gun accidents.. 20% more will be lost to internecine family disputes and long held grudges. The remaining 5% will be lost because of duplicitous romantic dalliances amongst friends and family members..

It is a good thing this user didn't post Merry Christmas. That would be forcing religion upon the forum and there would be whining.

HAppy Holidays to all the pagans and believers!!!

How can you people believe in this duck billed lunatic?

This show is like professional wrestling....It is all fake.

These clowns put on these costumes for this show and you all believe it. When they leave work to go play golf, they put on their $2000 outfits and $700 shoes, and get into their $200, 000 car.

TV characters are fake you guys. These guys are making a mint with this game. WAke up!!!

Like other sitcoms, the Robertsons we see on TV are shaped and edited characters
TV [email protected]

Amid the turmoil caused by the suspension of “Duck Dynasty’s” Phil Robertson in relation to an interview he gave with GQ, an outpouring of support has emerged from those defending the bearded A&E star.

Which only begs the question whether these people really know whom exactly it is they’re defending.

However real and natural it might appear,“Duck Dynasty” is a sitcom. Not all the dialogue is written, but as even the Robertsons freely admitted on the “Today” show,“They come up with ideas and we just get to be ourselves in the situation.”

So while Robertson can be taken at his word that he’s a man of faith, the character that people know from TV is just that: A character.

Other websites, some with way too much time on their hands, have meticulously detailed the staging that goes into the show. But suffice it to say that the Robertsons have thrived in part because they and their producers have been adept at making themselves seem authentic. As one reality TV producer suggested when discussing the show, even if the situations are all phony, you couldn’t create those guys.

Still, the full-throated defense on behalf of the Robertsons primarily reflects two things: The very effective tactic of making Christians feel like they are disrespected and persecuted by the mainstream media; and most germane to this discussion, the sorry lack of media literacy in the U.S., where people might insist they’re in on the gag, but if they’re seeing something on TV, they tend to assume it’s true.

At this point, the “Duck Dynasty” story has taken on a life of its own, propelled by the political aspects of the standoff – pitting anti-gay-rights conservatives against “liberal Hollywood”– and the good (or bad) fortune of happening right before Christmas, when everyone’s starved for something to talk and write about.

Yet while many of those who watch “Duck Dynasty” no doubt feel like they know the Robertsons, these characters are shaped – through editing and writing – in virtually the same way “The Big Bang Theory” or “Modern Family” is. So the guy you see, as colorful as he is, isn’t necessarily the real-life version.

And guess what? There’s no Tooth Fairy, either.
