Duck Dynasty To A & E: NO SHOW!

I do not watch Duck Dynasty, I am NOT a fan, and I have watched the craze over this show for the last few months.  I do find it refreshing to have a show on television that promotes family values, honesty and prayer.  So the furor over what Phil Robertson said is just a bunch of extreme Homosexuals getting their panties in a bunch.   And A & E fired Phil for his words.  The Robertson clan has given this statement:

We want to thank all of you for your prayers and support.  The family has spent much time in prayer since learning of A&E's decision.  We want you to know that first and foremost we are a family rooted in our faith in God and our belief that the Bible is His word.  While some of Phil’s unfiltered comments to the reporter were coarse, his beliefs are grounded in the teachings of the Bible. Phil is a Godly man who follows what the Bible says are the greatest commandments: “Love the Lord your God with all your heart” and “Love your neighbor as yourself.” Phil would never incite or encourage hate.We are disappointed that Phil has been placed on hiatus for expressing his faith, which is his constitutionally protected right.We have had a successful working relationship with A&E but, as a family, we cannot imagine the show going forward without our patriarch at the helm.  We are in discussions with A&E to see what that means for the future of Duck Dynasty.   Again, thank you for your continued support of our family.

Duck Dynasty is the highest rated program on Cable TV.  That is something A & E should remember.  Their viewer base is not gay men and women.  And their viewers are furious at A & E.  Something they and their advertisers should remember and consider very strongly.  I wonder if these gay activists will start condemning Muslim Imams when the demand (and help bring about) the deaths of gays?

I've never watched it either, but one would have to live in a cave not to know what the family is about, their faith. Rush Limbaugh keeps talking about a "tipping point" somewhere in the future, some little thing that will happen that will be the breaking point for Americans, forcing them to stand up and say "enough". I don't know if this is it, but 12 million viewers are a lot of people with opinions and votes.

Hello, I didn't know if you were going to be able to read my comment on the Israeli-Palestinian issue from the other blog, so I'm posting it here as well. I didn't know which blog to post it in, so I chose your contact.

@Findalis, don't underestimate the deviousness and will power of Marxists. It's rather comical in a sad way.

When not in power Marxists are brilliant strategists. When in power they are clueless clowns. Maybe due to the fact that for them to get into power, Marxists only require destruction and thievery.

Whereas actual governance requires far many more abilities. That is why the ANC rules as if it's still war time. And it's easy to blame structural failures on a "war" that's not even there.

The same goes for the Israeli-Palestinian issue. Israel like South Africa before 1994, looks forward. The PLO and Hamas having achieved a semblance of autonomous governing power find themselves in a clueless situation. So to cover up their kleptocratic ineptitude they adopt the ANC approach. Blame and Radicalize. Blame self-inflicted mistakes on Israel and radicalize the populace to make them immune to the again self-inflicted socio-political ills.

From our previous correspondence.....

On the contrary, Israel is the one small country no one should underestimate.

My point was, the Obama administration in its typical Marxist governing style seems rather bafoonish and incompetent. But that is not to say they are bad at what Marxists are typically good at. Culturally and demographically undermine nations.

This latter ability is what Israel should be on the look out for. Israel is more or less self-sufficient. And with the discovery of the vast oil and gas fields in the Mediterranean they seem set for a prosperous future.

Be that as it may, Israel's near total self-sufficiency may not be able to shield it entirely from the wave of cultural Marxism engulfing the Western world. Cultural Marxism that has been responsible for the EU, the Euro, GLAAD, and many other socio-economic deformities over the past 50 years.

And the Obama administration may just be a bit part player in this sick play. Look up the name Daniel-Cohn Bendit and you will get an idea of what's to come, what the cultural and demographic Marxists have in store for all of us.
