What he said was not racist but homophobic.

Duck Dynasty is the perfect example of decent GOD fearing White Americans who treasure moral values, something that sinful black vermin know nothing about, also I like the fact that they don't hire blacks who would be smoking crack in the restrooms & stealing them blind.

Slamming someone because they do not have the same beliefs that you do is nothing short of being a nazi.
Phil has the right to believe in the bible and his lord and savior with out being fired.
He has the right to believe in such foolishness, but he crossed the line when he decided to speak out his bigotry. Freedom of speech only applies too the government, not private business.

Right up until the point you can dress somebody up as Jesus to further your agenda or get what you want. Right?

Kinda like how those asshole greenpeacers used another "figment of our imaginations" in an attempt to further their agenda, guess it makes sense since Santa is as imaginary as gorebull warming.

I think you can widen the "blame" beyond A&E where "successful" programs seem to be questionable in the intelligent quota but seem to have audiences in some corners of our country.

Perhaps those who watch Fux, listen to Limbaugh,etc. are the same folks who watch the duckman?

I think any White man should have the right to speak out against blacks and queers equally. Both a parasite wanting special privileges for no reason. Both also needing to be eliminated from the face of the earth.

Don't understand why the NAACP is involved in or commenting on this issue at all, as an organization.
Fascinating to me is we expected the crazies like Palin, etc. to jump on the duckman's publicity stage but surprised when Jindal spoke out.

The NAACP has relevance in this discussion, Palin does not.

Just call us the silent WHITE majority. Fox News is number one for that exact reason too! Duck Dynasty isn't far behind either!

Robertson was born in Vivian in northern Caddo Parish, Louisiana. He was the fifth of seven children of James and Merritt Robertson. Because of financial setbacks during his childhood, the family lived in rugged conditions having no electricity, toilet or bathtub. The family rarely went into town to buy groceries, and instead lived off of the fruits and vegetables they grew in their garden; the meat from deer, squirrels, fish and other game they hunted and fished; and the pigs, chickens, and cattle they raised.

In his book, Happy, Happy, Happy, Robertson recalls that "It was the 1950s when I was a young boy, but we lived like it was the 1850s...but we were always happy, happy, happy no matter the circumstances."[1]

Halfway between Vivian and Hosston is Robertson's restored log cabin birth home. In September 2013, it was for sale for an asking price of $750,000. The property is owned by Robertson's cousin, Nathan Hale, who acquired it for an initial $55,000 investment around 2009.[2]

College and football

Quarterback Phil Robertson throws against Southeastern Louisiana University's Lions.
As an athlete in high school, Robertson was all-state in football, baseball, and track, which afforded him the opportunity to attend Louisiana Tech University in Ruston on a football scholarship in the late 1960s.[3] There he played first-string quarterback for the Bulldogs, ahead of Pro Football Hall of Famer Terry Bradshaw,[4][5] the first overall pick in the 1970 NFL Draft. When he arrived at Tech in 1966, Bradshaw caused a media frenzy on account of his reputation of being a football sensation from nearby Shreveport.[6][7] Robertson was a year ahead of Bradshaw, and was the starter for two seasons in 1966 and 1967, and chose not to play in 1968.[8] It was thought he had the potential for a pro career, but his mind was elsewhere.[3] In an interview with ESPN, Robertson stated that:

"One time a bunch of geese came over and I was over there with the coach and talking about techniques or whatever, a big skull session on the practice field. I heard these geese. Remember we were practicing in the fall of the year — and the grand passage as we call it — the ducks and geese were coming from Canada. I heard these blues and snow geese coming over and I sort of fell into a trance. Of course I had my headgear next to my chest and I'm looking toward the sky and finally one of them coaches looked around, and he started cursing at me, "What are you doing son? Get over here! What are you looking up at?" I said, "A bunch of them geese, Coach. Boy they pretty, ain't they?" He said, "Get your butt over here."[3]

And this was most certainly not a secret; even Bradshaw claimed that:

"The quarterback playing ahead of me, Phil Robertson, loved hunting more than he loved football. He'd come to practice directly from the woods, squirrel tails hanging out of his pockets, duck feathers on his clothes. Clearly he was a fine shot, so no one complained too much."[9]

When Paul Harvey confronted Robertson with a recruitment to play professionally for the Washington Redskins, he declined because football conflicted with his hunting. Besides, football was only about holding up his scholarship to him, while Bradshaw practically lived and breathed the sport.[7] Robertson put it in this way: "Terry went for the bucks, and I chased after the ducks."[3]

Degrees and first jobs
After receiving his bachelor's degree in physical education and a master's in education, Robertson spent several years teaching. He said while his students claim he was an excellent teacher, spending time in a classroom brought him to the conclusion that his time and talents would be better spent in the woods.[10]

Sounds like he is better educated then the liberals that parade across these pages. Lord knows he could buy, and sell them 10 times over. That is why they are so jealous, They could have made successes of their lives if they had stayed off the drugs, and booze.

Phil turned A & E everywhere but loose. He is coming back January 15th. They had no plans to fire him. Guess the cable channel knows where their money comes from. Their idiotic suspension just makes them look so silly, and makes GLADD look worse.
