Duck Dynasty Must
Make Liberals Crazy

American Spectator, by Benjamin Brophy

Original Article

Posted By:MissMolly, 4/5/2013 6:06:07 AM

Duck Dynasty must make liberals heads explode. It is now the most popular “non-scripted” show currently on television. Its Season 3 premiere had 8.6 million viewers and a massive 4.0 rating in the 18-49 demographic, which as you might know, is quite popular with the advertisers. At the same time, each episode ends with the entire family at the dinner table where they pray before eating. Indeed, the Robertson clan is entirely evangelical. They take their faith in Christ seriously and exert quite a bit of effort preaching the gospel. The patriarch of the family, Phil, used to live

Big fans here! Article didn´t mention the whole private enterprise family owned business side of the story, also very appealing.

I would say that the headline might be true, except for the fact that liberals are already crazy.

Not scripted? The few times I have seen it, it appeared to have a script. You got the boss, the worker, the whiner, and the agitator... and they all act out their parts.

It does seem scripted, but we love Duck Dynasty here. The thing that makes MY head explode is the ridiculous liberal media heralding ´groundbreaking´ shows like ´Girls´, and ´Girls´ only gets 600,000 viewers. The lib media can´t (or won´t) even tell the truth about the tv shows America likes.

Saying DD is scripted is assuming that any one of those characters would actually listed to some producer types. As a true Cajun Louisiana Boy...If I say what you want you better listen "REAL" close to what I actually said. And Robertson AIN´T Cajun. But we do love those the show anyway.

I´ve been waiting for someone in the media to catch on that there´s praying on the top rated cable show. We were surprised to hear a heartfelt prayer at the end of the first episode and pleasantly surprised that it became the regular feature of the show.

And in general, we love this "non-scripted" sitcom, at least it feels like a sitcom, but not one filled with childish sex jokes and constant insults. This show features an extended family and friends who love and respect each other. It also features a true original, Uncle Si.

Another Duck Dynasty family here. What great people! It´s interesting to me that a show can be so entertaining following a family around, without any major conflicts, with true love shown, and without any blue language. Who knew?!?!?

And no, they´re not Cajun. But they´re still nice. ;)

Funniest show on tv. And if I had kids still at home, one of the few I´d let them watch these days. Yes, of course,there´s a "script" in the different scenarios they film every week. But having watched these guys since their tv career started--which was on a hunting show on the Outdoor Channel many years ago--I can tell you that they really are that funny. All the time. And really an admirable bunch. Always a positive message delivered with hilarity.

We are a hunting family, but I hate almost all hunting shows. I got started watching Duck Commander when it was on several years ago and thought it was hilarious. When Duck Dynasty took it´s place I loved it.
I noticed that last year Phil said his prayers to God, but this year he has been actually invoking the Name of Jesus. Yay

I have to admit I have lust in my heart for Willie´s wife, as well as for Miss Kay.
And if I understood what Miss Kay was saying at the bowling alley, she was a participant in a shotgun wedding.
I also like the fact that her husband, who played QB for Louisiana Tech, mentioned in passing that his backup was Terry Bradshaw.
(I googled it and verified that it was the truth.)

I love the show. It´s obviously part spoof. They are rednecks but speak with complex words, adverbs, and sometimes smatterings of foreign words. It´s funny to see the family dynamics and heartening to hear the family prayers. (Blue Bloods pray,too. It´s very Catholic.)

Si is the resident Vietnam vet who proudly boasts his history. Mom and Dad are always respected and loved. Great show. Loved the one where they cleaned a bird for show-and-tell. We rolled!

Please look at your parental warnings on DirecTV/Dish on this show. They´re LONG! You´ll laugh.

Si is the funniest thing with his fractured English. Yay for the duckmen.

Stumbled on DD during the second season and absolutely rolled on the floor at the Show & Tell episode where Phil showed the kids how to gut a duck, and Si told them all about his experiences in "Nam." I´ve been a huge fan ever since.

It may be scripted to an extent, but the whole family has a flair for comedy.

No members of Duck Dynasty are not Cajun. They live above I10. Therefore they are rednecks. Just saying. Watched a few episodes. My favorites are on Swamp People. The thread that runs common on both shows is devotion to family and a good work ethic. I´m a yankee Cajun. That is a former Seattleite. Folks here in Louisiana are so much more happy and friendly. Some of the locals here don´t like shows like Duck Dynasty and Swamp People. They say it only confirms what "the rest of the country thinks of us." Ptooey. To repeat...devotion to family and a good work ethic. Personally, I don´t give a rats .... what the rest of the country thinks. And from this article I take it that most of the rest of the country get it. Devotion to family and a good work ethic.

From manicures to motorcycles, four Little League crooks in three states used team funds for more than baseballs, bats and celebratory ice cream cones.

With the start of a new baseball season comes a disheartening stat that makes you worry not just for the national pastime, but for the nation itself: In less than a year, four little league presidents have been charged with looting their organization´s treasury.

Eco-extremists can often be heard expressing their frustration that more people don’t take their climate change alarm-mongering more seriously. I realize this is just one guy, but… that’s partially because of moments like this. So brilliant. Labour peer Viscount Simon, 73, raised concerns about the “smelly emissions” resulting from the UK’s unusually high consumption of baked beans. He put energy and climate change minister Baroness Verma on the spot during the government’s daily question session in the upper chamber. … Lord Simon said: “In a programme some months ago on the BBC it was stated that this country has the

From 1964 to 1968, close to 34,000 Americans died in South Vietnam. We will never know how many Vietnamese women, men, and children perished during those years, but the total, according to most estimates, was at least one million. Among the dead were tens of thousands of civilians—blown apart by explosives dropped from planes, burned to death by napalm, or gunned down by U.S. troops whose commanders told them that, in a village considered loyal to the Vietcong, they should “kill anything that we see and anything that moved.” Their commander-in-chief was Lyndon Baines Johnson.

KIEV, Ukraine -- Ukrainian special forces were deployed Sunday to an eastern city where armed pro-Russia men seized a police headquarters and the Security Service office, the interior minister said. Arsen Avakov wrote on his Facebook page that the "separatists" who seized the buildings in Slovyansk had opened fire on the approaching troops. This claim could not immediately be confirmed. The unrest in Slovyansk and the nearby major industrial city Donetsk were the latest shows of spiraling anger in eastern Ukraine, which has a large Russian-speaking population and was also the support base for Viktor Yanukovych, the Ukrainian president ousted in February

It was the best of hugs; it was the worst of hugs. Or so the description might have gone had Charlie Crist labored a bit longer on his new memoir, in which the erstwhile governor of Florida—who is now campaigning for the job again—relives the fateful embrace with President Obama that he claims sunk his political fortunes in 2009. Rather than try for style, Crist renders the moment with the racy, staccato gusto that one might expect from a pulpy romance. “We shook hands. The new president leaned forward and gave me a hug.

Rolling Stone’s Constitution cover is in need of an amendment. The cover of the storied rock magazine’s latest issue features a naked Julia Louis-Dreyfus with a faulty U.S. Constitution inked on her back. Just above her derriere sits the signature of one of the nation’s most prominent Founding Fathers, John Hancock. There’s only one problem, however: John Hancock didn’t sign the U.S. Constitution. Hancock, president of the Second Continental Congress, actually signed the Declaration of Independence. His autograph on that document is so stylish and large, in fact, that it inspired the use of his full name as a synonym for

When a business acquaintance insulted Jose Manuel Martinez´s daughter, Martinez put two bullets in the man´s head, officials said. It was a matter "of family honor," Errek Jett, an Alabama prosecutor, said Wednesday. But it was not, it turned out, the first time he had killed — far from it, authorities believe.

Who throws a shoe? Honestly! That would be 36-year-old Alison Ernst of Phoenix, Arizona, who was charged Thursday night with disorderly conduct by the Las Vegas Police Department after allegedly throwing a shoe at former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. According to NBC News, who spoke with a Secret Service official, the U.S. Attorney’s office has declined federal prosecution. Ernst was wearing shoes on Thursday night when she attended a speech Clinton was giving in Las Vegas, but apparently brought an extra one specifically to throw at the former secretary of state.

Many Americans have been watching with great consternation the ongoing struggle between the Federal Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and the U.S. Marshals against Cliven Bundy and his family. There are no signs of either side relinquishing their position. Many onlookers have been informed that this dispute is over protecting the desert tortoise. But it is nothing of the sort. In fact, the reality of the dispute goes far underneath what is being talked about. The more appropriate source of the dispute is ground water as well as surface water -- this is a war over water.

A Nevada cattle rancher appears to have won his week-long battle with the federal government over a controversial cattle roundup that had led to the arrest of several protesters. Cliven Bundy went head to head with the Bureau of Land Management over the removal of hundreds of his cattle from federal land, where the government said they were grazing illegally. Bundy claims his herd of roughly 900 cattle have grazed on the land along the riverbed near Bunkerville, 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas, since 1870 and threatened a "range war" against the BLM on the Bundy Ranch website after one of

They’re both qualified, respectful of each other (shocker!), and represent the vast majority of middle America. So what’s not to like about another Clinton/Bush race for 2016? When you mention the prospect of Clinton vs. Bush 2016 a funny thing happens. First, there is the reflexive response: "Oh no, not again. We don´t need more dynastic politics in this country." But upon further reflection, you realize Jeb Bush vs. Hillary Clinton would be a great race and actually good for the country. Let´s review. QUALIFICATIONS—THEY’VE BOTH GOT THEM. Barack Obama won the presidency because in an election where the premium was on change, it mattered little

A rapid shift to wind and solar power is needed if the world is to avoid catastrophic global warming, the United Nations warns in a crucial report today. Emissions of greenhouse gases need to be cut by up to 70 per cent before 2050 to control climate change, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) says. ‘Large-scale changes in energy systems’ are required, with coal power stations to be switched off and replaced by wind and solar. And the transformation needs to be made in the next 15 years or controlling climate change will become increasingly harder and more expensive. The report was published

LAS VEGAS — The Nevada Republican Party stripped opposition to abortion and gay marriage from its platform Saturday as state convention delegates instead focused on judging fellow Republicans on their worthiness to serve in office and adherence to GOP values. The platform, with few changes, was adopted overwhelmingly as the Las Vegas convention stretched late into the evening. The vote mirrors that of the Clark County GOP, which voted earlier to remove platform language defining marriage as between a man and a woman and statements opposing abortion. Many Republicans are re-evaluating their strong stances on conservative social issues as public

Say what you will about Sens. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) and Ted Cruz (R-Tex.), but they know a train wreck when they see it. They also know when to separate themselves from the cranks and the losers on the right. Although both supported the shutdown and were heartily supported by tea party groups in their own Senate races, neither one has endorsed Matt Bevin in Kentucky, Milton Wolf in Kansas or Chris McDaniel in Mississippi. In fact, Cruz’s office confirms he hasn’t endorsed anyone in the primaries. He may weigh in after the primaries. Rand Paul has endorsed two very establishment

A brazen flash mob has been caught on camera storming a California store and making off with $20,000 worth of sunglasses. Surveillance footage shows eight women piling into a Sunglass Hut and crowding around display cases. Shielding workers from what they´re doing, they quickly stuff dozens of fashion specs into their bags. A store clerk pleads with them to stop, before running out of the shot to get help and dial 911. The thieves then all bolt outside and escape in a waiting SUV. The incident occurred at the Valencia Town Center mall, in Santa Clarita, at 3 p.m. on

It’s hardly been a secret that in recent years the moderate center of the Democrat party has been driven away and what remains is a conglomeration of disparate blocs which, to date, the party has been able to treat as if there were no conflicting interests between them. As the midterm elections approach and the administration’s incompetence, along with the distaste for the president’s signature ObamaCare legislation, drive the party’s chances down further, the make-believe coalition of opposites may well crumble if the opposition doesn’t blow it. Democrats hope to retain control of the Senate and recapture the House by driving
