Simple.

It galvanizes the far right and sweeps some moderates in the wake.

Duh.

It's why I think that GLAAD needs to check it's backyard for moles.

The agent provocateur is a very old political tool.

Another is dam foolishness.

Christianist bigots as the real victims - for getting called out on their hypocritical reading of scripture - sells really well with christianist bigots.

I was actually pretty pissed off when I saw a couple of gay groups jumping on the bandwagon on this one.

I think that ignorance and hate should be on full display everywhere it exists. What better way to showcase what it really is--embarrassing and foolish.

All that GLAAD, et. al. and A&E did was throw some red meat to the idiot brigade. Now they can scream and holler about their "proof" that they really ARE the victims of the evil gay conspiracy to destroy the good Ol' U S of A.

And nothing was accomplished except BILLIONS in free advertising for A&E and whatever the hell "Duck Dynasty" is.

And I think the whole "controversy" was probably manufactured, probably BY A&E. Otherwise, who would be surprised by a redneck being homophobic or quoting bible verses?

If this is what "hurts democrats," then it has been doing so since before democrats existed. It's not like it's something new. This "controversy" hurts democrats about as much as Fox News made sure Obama wouldn't get elected.... TWICE.

A&E doesn't have anything else going on to garner a lot of notice in its programming, does it?

Now its brand will be "sexual hate," give or take.

Uh oh, buybull-o. Who could have foreseen anything else that's buybull creepy from this fellow?

"This weekend bloggers turned up a video from 2009 in which Robertson advises marrying underage girls [15, 16] because they are easier to dominate than those who've graduated high school."

No, that's pure projection. I've said no such thing.

But you fundies have literally stated and supported the notion of preferring to marry 15 year old girls.

Those are simple facts, mouthbreather.

No need to lie. The Duck trash said men should marry 15 year old girls. The fundies love Duck trash (and the buybull practice and history was much the same thing.) And a foul mouthed jeesus troll here said he agrees with the Duck trash.

If I wanted to lie I'd say you are secure in your sexuality.

You [email protected] are born liars. I hope you shiteaters try to start the New Year with a resolution. Leave the young little boys alone. That would be good.

If anything was going to bring down Duck Dynasty it would be the fact that Willie and Korie Robertson have a mixed child. However, that hasn't made a dent in the show. They claim the child is adopted. Maybe he is. However, I bet the black guys that got Korie pregnant had a good time with her. She's a good looking woman.

This day and time, a white woman having a black man's child is cool.
