Didn´t Want to Diss Gay Employees
TMZ.com, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 12/21/2013 9:08:53 AM

Phil Robertson disrespected gay employees at A&E ... and THAT´S why he was sacked from "Duck Dynasty" ... sources connected with the network tell TMZ. We´re told A&E CEO Nancy Dubuc felt she could not in good conscience ask gay employees to kill themselves for a show when he disrespected them by calling them sinners. Our sources say ... gay employees involved in the production -- and there are a number of them -- were outraged by Phil´s comments to GQ and wanted Dubuc to give him the ax. We´re told Dubuc felt this way ... If Phil had made

Mark Levin is right. We are being ruled by tyranny of the minority. What about dissing Christian employees or Christian viewers. This is the danger of political correctness, it shuts down the speech of those who don´t share your same views, on anything. I guess it´s more important to bow down to those few gays on your staff rather than make millions of dollars on a successful franchise and showing what millions of other people want to see.

A&E knew about Phil Robertson´s views on homosexuality. It is simply now confecting its outrage to cover up for the fact that it has been exposed.

´Disrespected´ is a ´victim´ word and should be stricken from the English language in all its forms. A really big problem we have today is people being so thin-skinned. People need to get over themselves!

Ain´t that a convenient story...Now CEO Nancy can explain to those who she claims were disrespected that, due to her actions, the DD show will be canceled and the "disrespected gay employees" will be laid off.
That should fix it.

So, paraphrasing St Paul´s words in Leviticus is to be considered dissing gays and grounds for termination?
I am totally out of tolerance for the gay community.
The next pervert who gets in my face will get "dissed" upside his/her head.

Talk about biting the hand that feeds you. All those oh-so-very-offended and sniveling gays who work on Duck Dynasty will soon be out of a job. Somehow that seems fair.

A&E including all their employees need the Robertsons way more than the Robertsons need them...that is the very large miscalculation here. I, for one, would like to see the Duck Dynasty family tell A&E to pound sand.

Harvey Levin of TMZ on Greta last night said that interview was done three months ago with A&E´s knowledge and approval. Go figure!

So let me see if I understand this. Gays do not wish to be discriminated against but are perfectly comfortable with discriminating against others.

Got it. Gays are not against discrimination; they want to be the ones doing the discriminating.

SO in order to keep from having to work with Robertson, they demanded he be fired thus eliminating their top show and probably their job. Isn´t this just like the Twinkie employees who struck, killed the company and then lost their jobs. Twinkies... Heh.

If you want to show your support for Duck Dynasty, buy directly from the DD family at:

I´ve seen this before and heard it before. And I´ll say here what these Liberals hate hearing: We are ALL sinners in the eyes of God.

All of us. Genocidal Murderers and schoolkids who steal pencils. There is no difference in God´s Eyes.

All of us. We fall short of God´s glory and are unworthy of his presence. Those who are in Christ, living or dead by our definitions are in God´s presence and are in Heaven, which is all that is within His presence. Those who are not in His presence are in Hell, which is the lack of God, as He will not force us to be with Him.

All of us. Only Christ is the bridge that allows us to return to God.

What Phil said made perfect sense and was not in the least, demeaning or judgmental. He was simply stating the Truth. If we are to be children of God, we, like good children, should seek to emulate Christ and avoid things forbidden, even if we want those forbidden things very much. Animals do whatever they desire - Man was given different rules.

Nancy has a problem, Nancy doesn´t understand Christians. Phil never called them sinners, GOD called them sinners. The Bible is explicit, Phil did nothing more then paraphrase the scripture. If Nancy or any homo has a problem with the Bible then their beef is with GOD.

If, on the other hand, they don´t believe in the inerrancy of scripture or don´t believe in the Bible or GOD, again just because they don´t believe doesn´t mean it´s not true.

They are betting their eternal souls on that question.

I guess eventually the gays will find out if homosexuality is a sin against God or not. If it is, I guess it will be too late to do anything about it.

If it is, and I don´t really know, I wonder if it´s one of them thar mortal sins?

I was a Christian mentor in the Eastham Unit in Lovelady, Texas for almost 15 years. Being dissed or disrespected real or imagined (mostly imagined) could get you severely beaten or even killed. These gay employees are really no different than those felons except Phil didn´t have to worry about being attacked. I´m so sick of "my feelings were hurt", "it´s not fair", "I´ve been disrespected", "you´re a racist", "what was said made me feel uncomfortable"! Good grief all Phil said is what a lot of us wondered all along. Like Billy Graham Phil said that the Bible calls homosexuality a sin. Phil never said anyone in particular was a sinner.

It´s that they thought they were in control. They thought they could get Robinson fired yet keep the show because they thought they were the most important people on the show. As always they are a legend in their own mind ... just because they are loud and obnoxious. They are slow to learn that you yank on the tail of a tiger you get bit.

I can´t tell from the article if it was homosexual A&E employees who demanded Robertson be fired, or GLAAD activists, or if this was all Nancy Lubuc´s bright idea. I think the first possibility is the LEAST likely. As others have pointed out, this show has been on the air for several years, with no apparent conflict for the staffers, who can´t be only NOW discovering what Christianity says about homosexuality.

The activists wouldn´t care, though - it´s always a good time to attack Christians. As for Lubuc initiating this and then hiding behind her "gay employees", I can believe that too. Many times (especially in Britain) management cracks down on Christian symbols or popular traditions with the excuse that it MIGHT "offend Muslims", and it turns out that no Muslims even complained or were even concerned about the issue. It was just a pre-emptive surrender by people who are over-eager to show off how sensitive and inclusive they are. (And I suspect, secretly harbor their OWN resentments of Christianity, and are happy to use other people as proxies to carry on their vendetta.)

So, what she is saying is that homosexual employees of the show wanted Phil Robertson to shut up about his beliefs, because they wanted their beliefs to prevail over his?

Why not relocate those offended employees so they wouldn´t feel like they were killing themselves for someone and something with which they disagreed?

Sadly, they may not realize until Judgment Day that Phil Robertson was not disrespecting them - rather he is showing the utmost respect and love by telling the truth.

Tedious and borderline schizophrenic.

If they believe in the God of Abraham they know sodomy is a sin. If they don´t believe in God, then calling it a sin has no meaning.

The thing is i cannot understand why the homosexual community seem upset that Mr. Robertson spoke of two body parts. God created our bodies, and should someone speak of them in a clinical way, then why should the gay lobby suggest that Phil is using "coarse language"? Aren´t early education sex courses in our schools telling our young children that they should properly name their body parts??? (little sarcasm here on my part)

The gay community should not be upset that Phil Robertson was, essentially, comparing an homosexual to a heterosexual act. It is what it is, and they should analyze why that information being in a public discourse upsets them (and I am not being sarcastic here).

The legal issues here need some focusing.

This is not a First Amendment issue, because Governmental action is not involved.

Unless there are provisions in an employment contract to be construed, every employer should have (and absent anti-freedom of choice, "civil rights" legislation would continue to have) the full and express right to fire any "at will" employee that they want to fire -- for any reason whatsoever, and/or for no reason at all.

And by the same token, the Duck Team should continue to have (and apparently, does contractually have) the full right to take their top-rated show to any network (but possibly change the name, somewhat, if they don´t own the trademark, "Duck Dynasty"). [[As an experienced trademark lawyer, if they do so and A& E files an improvident lawsuit, I will volunteer to defend them, gratis]].

Why would they want to continue to make money for A&E, with whom they do not agree?

And, obviously, viewers can "vote" on what they like or don´t like -- with their ratings.

I´ve had the same thought as #36. The feminists also like to throw proper terms around (the Monologues) and that´s considered okay so why would this be objectionable. Perhaps opening the window about what actually goes on will clue in people who didn´t know. Sort of like the rude awakening some people had when confronted with details of what actually happens in abortions.

I´ve used those same scriptures with a couple of drunkards, and they never complained of being offended.

Notice how gays constantly need to be affirmed by the straight world that what they practice is OK. To me that shows they at some level are unsure of their lifestyle. If they truly believed the gay lifestyle was OK, they would need to be constantly reassured of it.

There are many aspects of homosexuality that are not readily understood – either by the homosexual or greater communities. One reason is that, in polite circles – and given the possibility of misunderstanding and personal offence – homosexuality is not a topic of any substantial frequency.

One aspect of such misunderstanding is a reasonable theory as to why homosexuals display certain, distinctive, and albeit rather uniform, manners of speech and physical gestures – which some others find to be sat least a bit unusual.

If one were to ask a Gay person for the reason(s) why, the likely answer would be something like: “This is the natural way that I have been created to speak and/or act…” – as though somehow speech and gestures were not learned behavior.
One explanation for the behavior of this small part of the population is that it is thereby that one of the putative “partners” is able, relatively safely, to invite homosexual advance.

And, the reason why this indication is necessary would be to prevent violence from an otherwise ill-timed, and mis-intentioned, communication towards someone who would find a homosexual proposal to constitute grounds for violence – [[somewhat similar to the utility of a lioness “signaling” that she is genuinely “a-lioness-in-heat” (i.e., receptive), and watch out if she is something else]].

The prevalence and uniformity of this self-preservation, biological “signaling” behavior -- as evolutionarily copied from the mammalian world -- itself demonstrates that there is a very large part of greater-community males who would find a homosexual advance to be, at the very least, “unwanted”. And a reasonable explanation for this primal emotion is that a very large part of the male population does in fact find the homosexual act to be disgusting – and, even sufficiently so as to provoke violence.

Finally, and given the necessary conclusion that there is a depth of revulsion held by seemingly the vast majority of males in the society, the Gay community (and its spokesman/apologist, Piers “America’s Got Talent” Morgan) may want to acknowledge the high degree of toleration of this libertarian society. And, if they want to go a bit further in the condor of this self-assessment exercise, Piers, the erstwhile Talent Judge, together with his small minority following might also chose to acknowledge that it is not the existence of Robertson’s views on biology and religion that is unusual – but rather the fact that he has said what many other, more-polite persons are thinking.

Note to Ms Dubuc at A&E, they are sinners! Not according to Phil Robertson, but according to the God he believes in and follows. If people have a problem with that or it hurts their itty bitty feelings then they need to take it up with God, not take it out on Phil.

So what is the big deal? What about the feelings of the beastiality people?

Truth is it is about a bunch of folks who are power seeking to impose their desires upon others. Gay unions would have made for some parity without threatening the Defense of Marriage act and years old hetro marriage traditions where a father or family would not let go of a daughter without some legal assurance of her well being.

The GLAAD power movement wants what they want without thought to what comes next. They are not necessarily linked to NAMBLA (whom the press never mentions anymore) but will their rights give rights to NAMBLA? The dam opened when it should not have been?

The GLAAD people do not want equal rights, they want the power to force people to think what they wish them to think--that gs and hetro marriages are the same and that punishment will come to those who might wish to think or even say otherwise.

I wouldn´t go after gays with a hood on and actually like what they add to historical evolution of our civilization and current society but "No one likes to be told what to do and even more so what to think"

The attack on the quoting of the Bible is ominously oppressive and it needs to end here for the sake of all religious freedom IMO.

So, it took them four days to come up with this lame brained, totally unbelievable excuse? Could there be any doubt, what-so-ever, at any time, ever, what the DD people think and believe? How dim does the network exec have to be? It´s just not possible they could not have known this belief after all these shows. But, once is it spoken out loud- suddenly A&E employees are offended?

That´s so stupid it´s hilarious!

Pointing out sinful behavior is now objectionable. The sinner has been ´disrespected´, and pointing out sin must be silenced. Society becomes more corrupted. Ultimately, God will judge.

Obama administration’s ‘Culture of
intimidation’ seen in Nevada ranch standoff
Washington Times, by Valerie Richardson    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 4/16/2014 10:09:44 PM     Post Reply
Sending scores of armed agents along with helicopters and dogs to confront an elderly Nevada rancher over grazing fees may seem like overkill, but critics say it’s not inconsistent with the federal government’s recent approach to environmental enforcement. The simmering truce between the Bundys and the Bureau of Land Management comes after high-profile raids last year by armed federal agents on small-time gold miners in tiny Chicken, Alaska, and guitar makers at the Gibson Guitar facilities in Tennessee. That doesn’t include more subtle threats, such as recent efforts by the Obama administration to raise grazing fees or pressure

Congressman: Obama ´Has Been Forced
to Deport a Huge Number of Americans´
Cybercast News Service, by Susan Jones    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 4/16/2014 10:02:50 PM     Post Reply
Rep. Joe Garcia (D-Fla.) is among the Democrats pressing Congress to take up immigration reform. On Tuesday, he told a conference call that deportations are breaking families apart and leaving children in foster care. "So the human toll has been horrific. This president, by implementation of existing law, has been forced to deport a huge number of Americans." Although Garcia may consider the deportees to be "Americans," legally they are not. But they might become citizens if Garcia and other immigration advocates get their way. Democrats are urging Republicans to sign their discharge petition, which would force a House vote on

Oversight member on Lois Lerner
coordination with DOJ: ‘Now I see

Key members of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform expressed outrage at revelations made in newly released emails showing ex-IRS official Lois Lerner coordinating with the Department of Justice on prosecuting nonprofit groups. One committee member said the emails prove why the IRS is “scared to give up the rest of Lois Lerner’s emails.” IRS commissioner John Koskinen was recently threatened with contempt for stonewalling the committee’s investigation. Koskinen claimed in a hearing that it could take years to provide the documents requested by Oversight. “The release of new documents

Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren wrote in her forthcoming book that she was “hurt” and “angry” by 2012 reporting on her fraudulent claim to Native American heritage. “What really threw me, though, were the constant attacks from the other side,” Warren wrote in her book “A Fighting Chance.” “I would almost persuade myself that I was starting to get the hang of full-throttle campaigning and then — bam! Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively

So I´m outside yesterday leaving work, and a woman stops me to say how much she loves me. I get this all the time. We chat a bit and she goes on to tell me how much she appreciates my covering what the other guys won´t. Then she said something that really stuck with me. "Neil, thank god you´re not cool." I told her, "is it that obvious?" She laughed. I laughed. But she got me thinking. It happens sometimes. I´m not cool. But I´m ok with that. Good thing, because I never was cool. But just admitting that to the mainstream media is very un-cool. Because the mainstream media

Why is US Senator Harry

a local Nevada rancher?

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

The Terrifying Implications of
the IRS Abuse-DOJ Connection

Thank God for Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration J. Russell George. His investigation of what turned out to be the IRS abuse scandal may well have saved the Constitution and the nation. For his fair and impartial investigation into the Internal Revenue Service’s abuse of Americans who dissent from President Obama’s agenda, Democrats have called for an investigation of him. George should not be investigated, but perhaps the Democrats who want him investigated — Reps. Gerry Connolly (D-VA) and Matt Cartwright (D-PA) — should be. Their call for an investigation of the investigator might constitute interference with the ongoing investigation

Obama to meet with healthcare leaders

Posted By: KarenJ1- 4/16/2014 9:15:29 PM     Post Reply
President Obama is scheduled to meet with health insurance executives and state insurance commissioners on Thursday, just two days after ObamaCare´s special enrollment period officially closed. The meetings, which will include at least one photo-op, are a chance for the White House to telegraph unity with health insurance companies and state regulators involved with the rollout of the healthcare law. The announcement of new enrollment figures was also expected separately on Thursday. It is possible Obama could reveal the numbers before one of the two meetings. Total exchange enrollment is likely to have risen since last week, when Health and Human Services Secretary

Colo. eminent domain case

Breckenridge, Colo. - A contentious eminent domain case in which a local government sought to take private backcountry land for open space has been settled, with the landowners agreeing to a $115,000 sale. "To me, what just came out of it is, you can´t win, you can´t fight the government," landowner Ceil Barrie said Wednesday. She and her husband, Andy, owned ten acres of land perched at 11,000 feet elevation in Breckenridge. The property, with breathtaking views, was a private patch of land surrounded by White River National Forest. An old, uninhabited day-use cabin, an outhouse and a shuttered gold

Salon: ABC News ´Bending Over

Sunday, George Stephanopoulos announced that Laura Ingraham was joining ABC News as a contributor. So the network that long employed a Cuomo and still employs a Clinton "bimbo" destroyer has formalized a relationship with a conservative pundit. To the Left, this is yet another example of the mainstream media attempting to compensate for a liberal bias which never was significant and vanished altogether roughly forty years ago. They want no debate. In a Tuesday piece for Salon, Heather Digby Parton, who blogs at her own site under the name Digby, asserted that the conservative claim of liberal media bias is "absurd"

MSNBC’s Ronan Farrow Daily wasn’t exactly in Reverence Mode for the Boston Marathon bombing victims. About 40 minutes before the memorial ceremony on Tuesday afternoon, Farrow aired a segment about Tamerlan Tsarnaev’s love for Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) and how it somehow may have led to his radicalism. How is the “robust martial arts culture” of wrestling a better “scene” for Tamerlan’s radicalism instead of radical websites or mosques? Farrow somberly promised “a look at the people behind this tragedy: the Tsarnaev brothers.” Was it just a tragedy, or a crime? Farrow turned to his partners at Vocativ for a

President Obama called House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.) to prod Republicans to bring up immigration reform, but the conversation apparently did not go well. Cantor issued a blistering statement afterward, criticizing Obama for calling him just after delivering what he called “a partisan statement” that indicated “no desire to work together” on immigration, a top priority for Obama that House Republicans have largely ignored. “After five years, President Obama still has not learned how to effectively work with Congress to get things done,” Cantor said in the statement. “You do not attack the very people you hope to engage in

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes. Connery just has to show up on time. In economics you devalue a currency by printing too much of it. In film you

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

Hank Aaron’s recent comments about the need for America to realize that racism is still very much alive and thriving — only now due to those who wear “neckties and starched shirts” rather than KKK hoods — has sparked an angry backlash and many fans are turning the tables, calling the baseball legend himself a racist. “Hank Aaron is a s*****g piece of [expletive] [racial slur],” one man said in an email to the Atlanta Braves’ front office, one of the teams Mr. Aaron used to play for, CBS News reported. “My old man instilled in my mind from a

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth. The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it

When President Obama needed a preacher to fulfill the closing prayer duties at the annual White House Easter Prayer Breakfast, he turned to none other than the Episcopal Church’s first openly gay bishop — who said he was as shocked as anyone at the appointment. The Right Rev. Gene Robinson said in a tweet, accompanied by a photo of Mr. Obama behind a podium at the event: “POTUS ‘preaches’ at the Easter prayer breakfast. Then, out of the blue, asks ME to close with prayer. OMG!” Newsmax said he also emphasized that the words he chose to close the breakfast

How do you ensure that you won’t be ostracized, denounced, or fired if you are a media celebrity, captain of industry, or high public official? For some, sexist banter is certainly no problem. Stand-up comedian Bill Maher called Sarah Palin a c–t and a tw-t, but suffered no ill consequences. David Letterman joked on air that Sarah Palin’s 14-year-old daughter had had sex with Alex Rodriguez during a New York Yankees game. There was no downside to that either. President Obama tosses around “sweetie” as he wishes. No problem with that. No one believes Barack could be condescending to women.

With Easter soon approaching, the Rev. Al Sharpton on Wednesday drew parallels between the resurrection of Jesus Christ and the resurrection of President Obama’s political career. Joining the “Tom Joyner Morning Show,” Mr. Sharpton said that his message for this Easter is that “no matter what the world may do to you unfairly, no matter how you’re crucified — nailed to the cross at home, or in your personal relationships, or on the job — that you can rise if you don’t lose yourself during the hard times and the challenges.” The reverend went on to say that Christ endured so much humiliation and unearned suffering leading up to his death,
