Where do draw the line? We watch different entertainment media to see how different people live, see and view the world around them. Duck Dynasty provides us a peak into a world that many of us don’t normally get to see up close and personal. An extended family of articulate Rednecks. I don’t know if the show is popular because folks find it outrageous or if it’s because they identify with a certain lifestyle. What we do know is that it is the most popular series ever on Cable TV. We know that people watch the show because they are presented with an extended family that are God Fearing and live a Southern Country life that looks like fun. The show is successful because the family is real, as well as their uncompromising faith.
Phil Robertson had a rant . “It seems like, to me, a vagina—as a man—would be more desirable than a man’s anus. That’s just me. I’m just thinking: There’s more there! She’s got more to offer. I mean, come on, dudes! You know what I’m saying? But hey, sin: It’s not logical, my man. It’s just not logical.”
He didn’t advise that anyone should take action action against them just that he thought they were wrong. A&E fired him anyway.
My sweet daughter Lawanna I think said it well on her Facebook page..
I’d be the first to stand up for your right to love someone that is the same sex. Marry them I don’t care. However I don’t feel freedom of speech is a fair trade off. This man did not use a derogatory name or statement. He was stating his religious beliefs. Agree or disagree let him be. If he was spouting Muslim beliefs, he’d been applauded. He didn’t even say what he did on the show. America the land of the free as long as you are and believe what the politically correct bastards with sticks up their asses agree.
And Even Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal Had something to say about the treatment of Phil Robertson:
Louisiana governor Bobby Jindal criticized the suspension of Duck Dynasty star Phil Robertson by network A&E.
“Phil Robertson and his family are great citizens of the State of Louisiana. The politically correct crowd is tolerant of all viewpoints, except those they disagree with. I don’t agree with quite a bit of stuff I read in magazine interviews or see on TV. In fact, come to think of it, I find a good bit of it offensive. But I also acknowledge that this is a free country and everyone is entitled to express their views. In fact, I remember when TV networks believed in the First Amendment. It is a messed up situation when Miley Cyrus gets a laugh, and Phil Robertson gets suspended,” said Jindal in a prepared statement.
None of us know how this is going to end, but I am pretty sure that A&E isn’t going to end up looking good in this mess.They have captured a demographic in America and stand to lose it because of their mismanagement, because they don’t know how to handle it.
