A&E’s Decision to Suspend Phil Robertson Is Not a Freedom of Speech Issue

The fact that Duck Dynasty’s patriarch, Phil Robertson, was able to voice his bigoted religious opinion and see it in print settles the argument once and for all that his freedom of speech and religion were not interfered with by the government.

However, that has not stopped the right-wing from going berserk over A&E, a private entertainment network, exercising their freedom of speech in announcing to their audience that they cut a character from one of their fake reality shows; likely for some sort of breach of contract for damaging the entertainment network’s reputation as tolerant, and arguably supportive, of the gay community.

What conservatives fail to acknowledge is that there are no constitutional free speech rights involved in A&E’s decision, except that Sarah Palin, Louisiana governor Bobby Jindal, and a host of bigots at Fox News are attacking A&E for exercising their right to freedom of speech.

I've seen nothing about you that indicates there is anything "superior" about you.
My learning abilities are superior to what they were a minute ago. I continue to gain superiority every minute in this realm because I aspire to the pursuit of the effort to improve my learning abilities.
Or is that too circular to be logical to you?
Anyway, you asked, I answered.
And don't "oh brother" me unless you intend to act as one. LOL

Most of the states where it's happened, the citizens of that state were against it. Obama pushed it on the military, and the wacko judges have ruled against the citizens of those states.

The government stuck its nose into our private lives and we are entitled to know whats in their files regarding health care.. Actually I feel we are entitled to know everything they think they know cause half of their records are flawed..

How is this guy even allowed to keep serving?

The Maricopa County Board of Supervisors this afternoon voted unanimously to approve a $3.75 million settlement for New Times' co-founders, whose false arrests in 2007 were orchestrated by Sheriff Joe Arpaio.

Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin were taken from their homes in the middle of the night and jailed on misdemeanor charges alleging that they violated the secrecy of a grand jury -- which turned out never to have been convened.

DP isn't offended by anything that is posted on these threads. DP has never hit the "report" button. The moderators could verify that fact but they wont. DP has been reported by the liberal liars on this thread though. Whenever DP posts strike a raw nerve, the liberals report the post to the moderators then they go on to reply to the very post that disturbed them in the first place. Don't they realize that replying to a post ensures that the post is still there in the reply even if the original post is removed for TOS violations?

The controversy that has the whole country taking sides began when the A&E network suspended "Duck Dynasty" patriarch Phil Robertson for disparaging gay people

And now Charlie Sheen is getting into the act and going on a Twitter rant about the reality star's (Phil Robertson) sentiments.

"Hey Mallard brained Phil Robertso! You have offended and hurt so many dear friends of mine, who DO NOT have the voice or the outreach that I do. Well news flash shower-dodger, I will speak loudly and clearly for ALL of them. So, just when your desperately sub evolved ass thought the pressure was off, you are now in the crosshairs of a MaSheen style media beat down.(I'll try to keep the big words to a minimum as not to confuse you)," the Anger Management star said.

"Your statements were and are abhorrently and mendaciously unforgivable," he went on. "The idea that you have a job outside of dirt-clod stacking is a miracle. The only 'Dynasty' you are attached to might be the re-runs of that dated show."

Sheen continues.

"The only thing you should ever be in charge of building is a hole in the ground the exact size of your head," Sheen continued. "Perhaps your beard would fit as well if you plucked out the army of scabies and bull weevils sequestered deep in it's sarcophagus of dander and weasel pelts. Shame on you. you're the only surviving brain donor I've ever known."

The actor went on to tell Robertson he needed to make "serious amends" to those he "radically offended," adding that he was "repulsed" by him.
