Freedom of Speech Vs TV Contracts: My thoughts on the A&E Controversy of Phil Robertson

Dec 2013

Alot of liberal opinions have been spewing through the internet about a series of statements by Mr. Robertson made about gays in general in a gq interview.

My response to the anger of ‘glaad’ and other obnoxious liberal media-ites is thus:

“WHO CARES!!”

Since when do … We as Americans… “MUST” agree to the liberal ‘sheeple’ and all those insane ideologists who absurdly claim the gay lifestyle is a neo-ethnic group that must be protected against all it’s enemies?

Since when… We as Americans must hand over our Freedom of Speech, Freedom of Religion, Freedom of Thought, to those ideological enemies who support the many ‘leftist’ philosophies that are dangerous and harmful.

According to the gq interview Phil is 67 years old he has lived longer than most of us in our 20s-30s-40s. He has seen the good and bad in the history of Louisiana. And yet his Southern opinion is seen as a threat to those who live outside of his home state.

I CANNOT assume by the related articles written by liberals assume that Mr. Robertson is a racist due to his comments about Blacks (African Americans) or a simple minded bigot.

NOR can I assume that he is wrong with his statements involving the gay lifestyle. He is allowed to have his own opinion on that subject even if his views are ‘politically incorrect’.

IF it is wrong for a tv series ‘star’ to have opinions that go against the ideological grain of the left than it is time to remind the lefties that their voices are not correct. It is time to remind them that the gay lifestyle is not safe. Gays lives are destroyed by disease and it is because of such it should not be celebrated in the media but mourned when person chooses the self suicide of the gay lifestyle.

As a public figure it is not surprising that A&E and other cable tv programs will sensor its employees. Such acts are part of that sort of employment. IF the Robertson family perfers they should simply shop for a new tv Channel to produce their program with all it’s merchandise and dump A&E and go into production for themselves. In that way they can remain true to the conservative ideology they practice along with their Faith in Christianity.

In doing so they can easily remove those leftists in their midst & keep their beloved ‘reality’ tv show going on until they decide to cancel it.

Robertson’s Family 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.”
