I don't know why gays expect to be universally loved or approved of. No one else is. A minority has failed in trying to bully and intimidate the rest of us.

Yes, a lot of people care. "Ignorant rednecks" have the right to an opinion as well as the rest of humanity. BTW, I would disagree with classifying the Robertsons as "ignorant rednecks." The LGBT community hurt their cause when they try to demand acceptance. They need to chill and grant the rest of us the respect they expect from us. Personally, I don't care if a person is gay. I just don't like a minority trying to intimidate others into accepting their life style or views. The best anyone can hope for is to be left in peace, not to be universally loved.

Did the LGBT community speak out against Robertson before he in fact spoke against them?

The answer is no - no one cared what DD did - I never even saw the show myself. That's not to say obviously they have a significant following. Robertson spoke out against their lifestyle - no one said a single thing about him and his clan until he came out publicly against them.

In this day and age, having a personal opinion when you're in the public spotlight can be problematic. Not saying it's right / it's the world we all live in though.

And just like he had the right to his ignorant and racist opinion that Blacks were better off during Jim Crow era (and slavery) people have the right to push back against ignorance and hate. The Jewish people know far too well what happens when you allow unchecked hateful rhetoric permeate.

Well, and ignorant redneck probably would disagree.

Just like Blacks “hurt their cause” by calling him out over his comments about Jim Crow era and slavery… but he was suspended, and then you saw him back track and try and sugar coat what he said. If you consider that hurting their cause, especially with A&E preemptively taking action before anyone demanded anything then I say let’s keep that hurt coming.

And like I said… at the end of the day no one cares that A&E lifted the suspension (that would have eventually been lifted anyway). The American people will not accept hate in the mainstream of this nation; A&E knew it, DD knew it and now they will go back with their tails between their legs and slosh around in the mud doing their ignorant routine for their reality TV goobers entertainment.

Even for you trying to equivicate 19th century Lincoln Republicans with 2013 Teabaggers is extremely lame,dishonest and disingenous.

For bigotry and racism to be dealt with, ALL the offenses must be put on the table. What we have are the ones the progressives have deemed WORTHY of demagouging. Since ALL of the offenses will never be put on the table and dealt with under the current power structure, the system will fix itself at some point. Hence, the weapons are being purchased and the nation is moving towards tyranny.

It is pathetically amusing how these right-wing tea-bagging fools, so desperate for a victory -(of any kind) after constantly and continually losing to the Black guy in the White House - will cling to anything that remotely looks like “Hey, we won”… in spite of how insignificant or the fact that it wasn’t a victory anyway (due to the ignorant idiot backtracking and A&E suspending him) these right-wingers will cheer the way that we cheered in 2008 and 2012 when real victories occurred, LOL!
