´Duck Dynasty:´ A&E brass know
they ducked up suspension

New York Daily News, by Bill Hutchinson

Original Article

Posted By:earlybird, 12/24/2013 9:33:50 PM

The suits at A&E are realizing the fix to their “Duck Dynasty” scandal is going to require more than extension cords and duct tape. Executives at the cable channel are privately acknowledging they could have better camouflaged the indefinite suspension of the hit reality show’s head redneck, Phil Robertson, an insider told RadarOnline. A&E’s brass also conceded they goofed by continuing to air its No. 1 program amid the controversy sparked by Robertson’s homophobic and racially insensitive remarks to GQ magazine. “Network bosses now recognize they should have just taken the show off the air for two weeks, since reruns

Comments:
Or they could have said that the program did not reflect management´s opinions, but that they supported its right to express them.

I believe I heard they´re having a marathon viewing of Duck Dynasty reruns - not sure when.

I don´t have anything against gay people. I know several and all but one are extremely nice people. I´ve worked with them and socialized with them - no problem.

However, gay people represent less than 3% of the US population. I´m really tired of the outsized voice they have in determining both private and public policy. It is getting annoying.

I´m Jewish and if I jumped up on a soapbox every time I felt insulted, I´d have no time for anything else.

"Robertson’s homophobic and racially insensitive remarks"

He said nothing homophobic and nothing to excite racial insensitivities, except among professional gays and the perpetually race sensitive - and they don´t count. They´d be offended if you said gay men like sex and black people are black. They make a living being offended, outraged, sensitive, hurt, incensed, but it´s all phony. They don´t give two hoots about this stuff, but they DO want some attention.

I really am getting tired of the word homophobic. It is a stupid word. Really. It makes light of real phobias, like arachnophobia or agoraphobia. These are phobias that mean what they are. Homophobia would literally mean a panicky extreme fear of sameness. Not anything like just not thinking that someone´s odd and unnatural sexual behavior is unacceptable for whatever reason.
Christians have the same objections to behaviors like polygamy and adultery as they do to homosexuality. We don´t call it polygophobic or adulterophobic.

On and individual basis, Gay people are to be pityed and shown grate compaction if they choose to act on their un-natural behaviors.

Phil is absolutely right, a women has much more to offer than and Anus.

And no matter how many Diversity Policies are established in Corporate America, homosexuality will never be accepted as a normal sexual behavior or legitimized. I do think GLAAD has meat their battle of Midway.

Here is the problem in a nutshell; The "Gay Agenda" driven activists - over the years - have entrenched themselves in company policy. Everyone who goes to work for a large company has to sign these "policy awareness documents" and take a whole series of "Sensitivity Awareness" classes. Most companies force their employees to takes these annually. They are primarily focused on sexual harassment and race and gender sensitivity. Then, aside from the so-called sensitivity training, the activists in managment come up with "fright´ maneuvers- "We might get sued if Suzi or Juwanda or Hermie are offended in some way and we don´t take action, so we should have a way to back up our training to make less cooperative (meaning heterosexual white people) to get with the program. The company then installs, in their emplyement policies "action" statements that provide "corrective actions" in case someone violates or abuses the company policty- that means, if you say an offensive word in the workplace or make it known that you have behaved against policy in your private life, the company can take action against you- make you perform extra sensitivity training, force offenders to attened sensitivity counceling, suspend them without pay or even fire them- or take away vacation days. Offenders can even be forced into special "guidance tours" to make them more aware of how offensive they have been- like making them go to "Gay Celebration" events or attened "Minority Gatherings".

In short- A&E is stuck. Phil was not in compliance with their poliy statements and employess are insiting on grievance satisfaction. If they don´t come down on Phil, they can´t enforce their own stupid sensitivity agenda policy.

First of all Phil made no homophobic or hateful comments or slurs like Alec Baldwin did,he merely stated facts and scripture as well as his opinion.Nothing wrong with any of it.

Second of all, A&E thought they could shove around the Robertsons like they do everyone else.
But there is a problem that the stupid suits at A&E fail to realize, A&E needs the Robertsons a lot more than the Robertsons need A&E.
The Robertsons are tough and smart people,a lot tougher and smarter than the pajama boys at A&E are.

What was inaccurate about what Phil said? What about his opinion was he not entitled to say in a free society?

As for A&E´s decision, of course they´re sorry they did it. One would think that placating 2% of the population and angering 90+% of the population isn´t very smart.

Militant gay activism. I receive a metal stamping trade publication; have done so for 20+ years. In September, I think the editorial was on workplace diversity and how it benefits business achievement. The next month the editor had a postscript stating he had overlooked an important group - the GLBT crowd. He also urged readers to celebrate gay pride month. I was stunned. To me, that would be like seeing an appeal for dog abuse in a cooking magazine. First, not relevant to the subject. Second, it´s just plain wrong. I sent a letter pointing out the irony of sexual harassment training and his acceptance of trumpeting one´s orientation in the workplace. Never got a reply.

The four letter words used by the writer of the GQ article were far more offensive than anything Phil said.

Especially since the words weren’t actually spoken during the interview. And certainly not by Phil.

I’m not even mad at A&E anymore, they did what any cynic would expect of them. Like hundreds of other “entertainment” companies, they have “creative” people in public relations and upper management as if straight people can’t also be creative. When they wrote the contract with the Robertsons, they could not be direct and clear about what they meant by “don’t embarrass the company” because they knew if they were explicit, Phil Robertson would never sign on. They expected the country to laugh at the “troglodyte Christian family” because they have never—in their whole lives—personally associated with a Christian, and do not understand the Duck Dynasty audience.
What upsets me is the quotes by the GLAAD spokesman, the arrogant ideologue who is so out of touch with the general public—even if he was ever exposed to the census results that show only 2.8% of the population are gay—he was certain that all who read his claims would agree with his position. What would it matter that his slice-dice-and-splice statement was filled with untruths, distortions and outright lies, people needed to be “lead into outrage” to silence the troglodytes. For the past three decades, those promoting the pro-pervert agenda have made advances by shaming anyone who speaks out against their perversions. If they truly believe they have a valid ideology, they wouldn’t need to resort to the hypocrisy of demanding an “apology” for what was never said by the “offender.”

[continued from post #16]

Without opening my Bible, I have the intelligence to know the pro-pervert preferred sexual acts are not “biologically viable,” if the whole population were to switch to them, (without extreme scientific intervention) the human species would eventually become extinct. Even with infiltration of the public schools and indoctrinating millions of children to believe their “lifestyle choice” is “normal” they have higher than average alcoholism, drug abuse and suicides, often their “committed relationships” have as much anonymous sex as a heterosexual prostitute, and the act of sodomy brings many medical problems without even considering AIDS.
GLAAD and LGBT activists think they can gain converts with outlandish behavior, Gay Pride Parades and graphic descriptions of their “bedroom” activities. I am not generally a prude, but I have no need of graphic descriptions not photos/videos, not by gays and not by straights. I don’t need them, and I don’t want my grandchildren exposed to them either, I don’t think the 50’s were the perfect decade, but I miss the time when things weren’t mentioned “in polite company” and I heartily resent those who refuse to allow my little bit of “polite company” space.

WASHINGTON — Stepping into a heated debate within the nation’s intelligence agencies, President Obama has decided that when the National Security Agency discovers major flaws in Internet security, it should — in most circumstances — reveal them to assure that they will be fixed, rather than keep mum so that the flaws can be used in espionage or cyberattacks, senior administration officials said Saturday. But Mr. Obama carved a broad exception for “a clear national security or law enforcement need,” the officials said, a loophole that is likely to allow the N.S.A. to continue to exploit security flaws both to crack

LAS VEGAS -- The Bureau of Land Management has announced it will stop the roundup of cattle owned by rancher Cliven Bundy. The BLM says the animals have been illegally grazing on public lands for 20 years. The BLM made the announcement Saturday morning, a week after rangers started gathering the animals from land near Gold Butte. The agency says it is concerned about the safety of its employees and the public. Earlier this week, BLM officers and supporters of the Bundy family were involved in a scuffle. Cliven Bundy´s son, Ammon Bundy, was tased twice by federal agents. Another woman said

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)
