Another case of ignorant religious nuts expressing their ignorant stupidity… and like clockwork here comes the right-wing pundit whores and political opportunist (Sarah Palin and the rest) looking to get the fanatical base of the tea-bagging fraction of the republican Party all worked up as the victims of political correctness.

Why can’t they attack groups of people with their racist beliefs and bigoted thinking… it the American way; their Constitutional right. Well A&E just showed these redneck idiots that their so-called right of free speech stops at the on and off button to my Satellite TV…

They can go hunt a duck and STFU, LOL!

Your post, another case of an ignorant gay expressing his ignorant stupidity. You can do anything you want to with your remote control. A&E showed them nothing, A&E has the most to lose in this one.

More and more people have had enough of this progressive agenda. What were the goals decades ago has gone off the track. As more and more of the general population becomes poorer in real terms, we will see what we wrought. The destruction of people continues as the elitists plans for world government moves closer to reality.

Homosexuals tried this type of blackmail and distortion on Chick-fil-A and lost horribly. People are currently very angry at A&E's bigotry and attempt to control someone not even doing their contracted work there.

Homosexuals are angry because they know deep down they serve no purpose whatsoever in the larger scheme of human evolution and survival. They know this and hate themselves because they are practicing behavior that either causes early death, or unproductive existence. In order to create a delusion of importance, they irritate, attack, abuse and misuse those actually having a reason to exist. Nothing ever satisfies that deep-seated knowledge of non-worth, so there is no curing it, except by getting them to accept Jesus Christ as their personal Savior by repenting of their evil and diseased ways.

In under 24 hours, there are more people on Facebook dedicated to boycotting A&E, than there are homosexuals in America. The queers tried to gain national attention with the lying lesbian in New Jersey and had to blackmail A&E in their most recent tomfoolery. A&E will definitely find the ugly end of the same stick that increased Chick-fil-A's customer base by strides.

We must elect representatives, who will make homosexual behavior in public a crime and homosexual propaganda a crime. We must have a strong enough legislative presence to impeach and convict any judge at any level of government going against the will of the people.

Absolutely right. Post #7 included. They will stop at nothing and this a mere indicator of a society in deep moral decline. A nation, its economy, and consumerism that is unsustainable. Liberalism itself is a mental illness.

This entire argument is complete utter bullshit.

Look, so what. This guy said something that offended the gay and lesbian community. Whoopi Freaking Doo. To the Gay and Lesbian community I say this: STFU and quit being little bitches crying about nonsense.

Does he have the right to express his views? Yes.

In turn, if those views do not match the views of A&E, does A&E have the right to terminate (suspend) him from airing on programming on their channel? Yes.

Was his right of freedom of speech taken away? No. The platform what was used was, but, not the speech itself.

Any individual can say what they want when they want. As long as the verbage does not take away or harm the rights of another individual, the speech is protected. Does not mean the platform is protected. So Senator Cruz I say this: His right to freedom of speech was not violated. So sit down and STFU.

Now is where it gets tricky. Contractual obligations.

Nobody can tell me that there is not somewhere within the contract between DD and A&E a clause regarding interviews and personal views. If there is not a clause regarding that, then the lawyers of DD and the execs of A&E and freaking idiots.

So was the contract violated by this DD cast member? If yes, the A&E has the right to suspend him. If not, then all A&E can do is put out a public statement now and a disclaimer prior to airing every episode that states that their views do not match the views of the cast members. And that is all they can do.

For GLAAD and other groups, untie your panties gay men, put your strap on's away lesbians, suck it up, stop being little bitches because of what someone said. Your rights were not violated. So sit down and STFU.

Sometimes the extreme political correctness of this society is disgusting. And to that I say: "Fuck all of you".

***facepalm*****

Wow just freaking wow.

This is the most ignorant thing I have ever heard. That paragraph was the most unintelligent statement I have ever read. And that says a lot compared to some of the crap Patty Cakes puts out there.

You would actually want a government that has done nothing but screw the people for the past 100 years to actually take the freedoms and liberties away from individuals because they like anal with the same sex or fisting with the same sex? Seriously?

Can we then say Japanese American in the 1940's?

Maybe we should round them up and gas them all then right?

How is it hate speech? That is a big jump you just made there.

Ask yourself the question. What this guy said, did it take away the freedoms and liberties of the gay and lesbian groups? Did it cause a harm to their freedom and liberty?

Answer is No.

Just as you have the right to say what you want to who you want as long as what you say does not take away the freedoms and liberties of the other individuals. He has the same right.

So you go blow it out your ass.
