Thanks, Duck Dynasty, for the Christmas Gift
American Thinker, by Lloyd Marcus

Original Article

Posted By:Desert Fox, 12/25/2013 7:28:14 AM

Duck Dynasty gave me an unexpected wonderful gift for Christmas: a renewed hope in America. Polling on various social issues confirm that liberals have made significant inroads towards secularizing America into a culture in which anything goes. The norm on TV is disrespectful kids scolding their parents, cussing, youths sleeping around, the promotion of homosexuality, and poking fun at Christians. Traditional principles and values are on the chopping block. Several months ago, I heard about this cable show, Duck Dynasty, that was kicking American Idol´s butt in the ratings on Wednesday nights. Since the recent controversy

I´ve never seen the show. I can barely tolerate the commercials.

But put me down for all the rest.

Take THAT, A&E.

Ah, it wouldn´t be a Duck Dynasty story without #2´s cut and paste posting of "I used to be a fan, but...".

Still not going to work.

Re 2
Troll Alert.
We have a fraud in the WH thanks to the secular progressives and their storm troopers.
Who is Barry Dunham aka Barry Soetero aka Harrison J. Bounel aka Barack Hussein Obama?
Who foisted this creature upon America and the world and why?
The Robertsons are Christians and Americans.
Who is he?
Benghazi.

Often the gift that means the most is one that is not found in a store--it is an expression of that which your soul has been aching for. And it arrives completely unanticipated, with perfect timing.

Those of us who live among, grew up with, or had the good fortune to cross paths with Robertson type people are better for it. We´ve learned life lessons from them that can never be taught by the self-appointed "experts", who recoil in loathing for such simple and honest Americans.

Merry Christmas to The Patriarch and his family, and THANK YOU.

Amen, Lloyd Marcus. Merry Christmas to you and your loved ones and thank you for being in the forefront of showing that it is the honest, decent, caring content of the heart that has the power to unite us as un-hyphenated Americans.

I´m unashamedly sappy and old-fashioned too. Yes, "May God bless us, every one."

Right here: Perhaps Phil Robertson´s leadership will inspire more Americans to push-back against the tyranny of political correctness.

If you have not seen and heard the interview that Phil gave to Sports Spectrum, you can see it here:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y_S1vaX-M

Please watch and listen --perhaps twice. Listen to the sub-text. There´s something happening. Phil Robertson said what he did to GQ for a reason. I´ve been watching this kerfufffle for days and I´m convinced that this is happening for a reason.

Phil was quoting scripture as best he could. Clearly he got the sense of it. People that have trouble with the Bible will probably not be thrilled with Duck Dynasty.

#2 this is the third thread in two days I´ve seen this same post. Quit with the ´I used to be a fan´ mantra and go back to the Huff Post.
Phil Robertson just might be the spark to ignite the push back against the left and all of it´s insults hurled at Christians and American values. Even our symbols come under attack on American soil. Our flag gets torn down because it ´offends´ some minority when it is tradition. I´m waiting for the left to demand the 4th of July be canceled.
Yes give thanks to Phil Robertson and the dumbness of A&E.

I have never watched it.

I will only watch it if they change to another station.

I refuse to give A&E one rating. It won´t hurt the Robertson´s.

I hope they do leave and find another home. Perhaps the one who showed the story of the Bible, the highest rated program in recent history. Might be a smart move. There was something to he gleaned here. The nation was hungering for it, the film series of the Bible story proved it.

This is NOT a muslim nation as our pResident wants the gullible to believe.

Traditional principles and values are on the chopping block.

Christmas is a good time to remind people that all of this was prophesied in Scripture. The destruction of morality and the people who call wrong things right is all there. No Christian should be surprised at what is happening.

The Good News is that we win, they lose.

God bless Phil Robertson and his entire family for their stand for Christ. He has started a firestorm across this country that the godless progressives may not be able to put out. Sometimes it takes one man to take a stand that gives others the courage to stand also. This incident serves as a reminder that we have not forgotten who we are and what we believe and our lifestyle is worth affirming. Thank you Phil and your entire family. You are the kick in the pants that America needed.

Merry Christmas to Ms. Lucianne, the staff and all my fellow LDotters! Although we probably will never meet, you are my cyber BFF´s who fill my heart with hope and laughter every single day of my life. Thank you and God bless you and all your families.

Lloyd Marcus: You are a fellow American from the America we all knew and loved...and an America that is re-awakening. God bless you, son.

To my fellow LDotters: A word of advice. #2 here is "hunting over bait," something Phil and the rest of the Robertson waterfowlers would never do. These types always jump in early on a thread and completely distract (and yes, enrage) us. The focus here should have been on Lloyd, Phil, Christmas and gifts. Instead, many of us took the bait and gave this poster a response...instead of a finger.

To Poster #2, sickened, (and the 7 Likers): May our loving God bless you and soften your heart. And, above all, MERRY CHRISTMAS!

Hate to give #2 the attention it seeks, but anyone with Christian faith places God at the center and forefront of our lives, not the selfishness of physical pleasure. ALL sin causes evil; ALL self-serving actions putting our desires over God´s plan of happiness for our humanity that He created will lead to our death. Homosexuality has no higher status over the other ways we manage to sin, it just gets more airplay as the sin ´du jour.

Love the sinner but hate the sin.

The Bible says in the ends times the scoffers and deviants will call evil good and sin acceptable. What Phil Robertson did was put words to what many of us know to be the true word of God.

It is wonderful to see the support and comments coming from the SILENT majority of Americans who are tired of being silenced by a growing minority of deviants.

Read the end of the Book, we do win. But the Bible does not say it is going to be easy. Courage is what we demonstrate in the face of great adversity. I pray those who are supporting Phil will remain convicted and STRONG as the battle continues to rage.

Blessed be the name of the Lord and those who stand with Him. Otherwise, He will say, :I never knew you."

What terrifies GLAAD and other leftist bullying organizations is that other actors/actresses/programs etc. will take the cues offered by Phil Robertson and Cracker Barrel. They really thought they were turning the corner when Cracker Barrel jumped on. But when Cracker Barrel jumped off, it struck terror into the leftist hate lobby.

"A retailer we really hate caved. We´re making some real progress now. We´ve got the situation under control and back on track...only a question of minutes before Phil and the whole Robertson clan caves...wait a minute...you say that Cracker Barrel reversed itself. And that Phil is standing by his original comments and reiterated his position? OMG! What do we do now?"

I´ve been reading around what the big left´s reaction is to all this and surprisingly they back the duckers.Not because they agree with them but because A&E knew what they were getting and should have stood behind them.

The left doesn´t mind this show being on anyway because they think it stereotypes the average republican and for sure southerner in this country.

Their humor is based on mockery and that´s conservatives favorite kind.

#2, you once again falsely clam: "Phil Robertson in 2010 on the subject of gay people: ´They´re full of murder,..."

I´ve already corrected your G*dd*mned lie on two previous occasions. You continue to claim that Phil´s comments are "on the subject of gay people..."

Once more, I point out that your repetition of the malicious media narrative is either misinformed or is itself malicious.

Phil spoke of "the unrighteous" in general, *and then* listed sodomites as *just one example* along with liars, envious, and heartless - and yes, murderers.

Furthermore, you failed to mention that Phil loves gays and warns them, in love, of a judgment to come. Phil clearly states that judgment of particular sinners is God´s work, not mankind´s.

As we all quack in with our "attaduck, Phil" comments, we need to keep in mind what is needed from this point forward. Namely, we can no longer sit politely and quietly as others question, ridicule, and demean our values. Rather, we need to stand up and personally speak out to defend those values and not acquiesce to the forced "thought normalization" of those practices we find contrary to those values, and under no circumstances accept the proselytizing of our children.

Don´t just defend Phil Robertson. BE Phil Robertson...at work, in your social circle, and especially in your family. Don´t be a chicken. Join the Duck Dynasty. Be a Duck Commander in your own pond. Clusterduck.

Coerce my approval against my will
In my heart I´ve the same opinion still


That has been running through my head recently, GLAAD and LGBT have made great strides in forcing their detractors to remain silent about any of their faults--and all humans have faults of one sort or another--but far too many decent, honest, Christian people who love all humanity and hope for the best have been forced to attend politically correct indoctrination sessions against their will.

In reference to the quote used by #2., as others have noted already, you´ve been busy copying and pasting this same charge on every thread applicable.
So allow me to repeat my previous suggestion to you from one such thread:
Take some time to refresh your memory and revisit the aftermath of the effects of the passing of Prop. 8 in California -- for one.
Generalizations don´t exist and don´t last without real foundation. And the foundation for this one is perverse as as all Hell

Stop breaking out store windows, sending death threats, threatening loss of livelihood, loss of property, bankruptcy, the destruction of others´ reputations through your own false values.
Stop demanding attention from our chiildren by forcing your dishonest portrayal and bent agenda into school curriculum.
Stop proselytizing.

Hollywood is on the brink of insolvency because of their deep embrace of voyeuristic violence and sex on screen and in real life. Their last financial refuge was international DVD sales, but even those are in the dumpster, so they´ve cut way back on paying the "stars" the money they need to live their much ballyhooed lifestyles, and most of them are turning to voice acting to make their rent payments.

Independent movies, on the other hand, have been doing quite well, especially those with an unabashed Christian message. Hollywood elitists must be seething wuth hatred for Christianity even more now than before. If you watch a good Christian movie, go out and buy it on DVD, and vote with your pocketbook.

I believe A&E started out to make fun of the rubes of America and picked on the Robertsons since they´re a "rags to rags" story, sort of like the Clampetts on the "Beverly Hillbillies." However, somewhere along the way, the NASCAR Americans began to identify with the values of this family and chose it over some of the trash TV on all cable and over the air broadcasting.

The homos of America may have just crossed the Rubicon and the war for civilization has begun. Thank you, Phil, for stating Truth.

It appears the second pits has been removed. Even the allusions to it are pretty bad. Thanks, Staff!

The exact words uttered by Phil Robertson are the same ones taught to children in sex ed classes where they call things by their correct names. If they are good enough for children of single digit age range, they can certainly be handled by a bunch of hissy-fit prone, so called adults. Unless, of course, those words condemn their militant actions.

This good man has caused a cultural shift so intense that I can feel it under my feet! Good and evil can simply not stand in the same place, so overcome this evil with your own good!

Thanks, Marcus. We´re with you on the traditional fare for Christmas viewing!

God help us to speak out with courage. Phil has shown us how!

A&E ran with the show thinking it would draw a demographic similar to Honey Boo Boo and people would make like making fun of redneck, bible toting, duck shooting white trash millionaires. A&E was wrong and got caught with their hands in the cookie jar and it had almost a half-billion dollars in it. The US embraced the Robertson family, whether they watch the show or not. Any family that has a patriarch who looks to God for leadership, bathes every decision in prayer, and looks to the bible for decisions cannot be brought down by the likes of A&E. Papa Duck is no fool. He could have signed with Washington Redskins but decided to stay in Louisiana. He found a relationship with Jesus Christ and the rest is history.

Climate change is damaging fish brains and

researchers warn

Fish are losing their survival instinct as the world´s oceans become more acidic because of climate change, researchers have claimed. The study confirms laboratory experiments showing that the behavior of reef fishes can be seriously affected by increased carbon dioxide concentrations in the ocean. Carbon dioxide released into the atmosphere is absorbed into ocean waters, where it dissolves and lowers the pH of the water. The new study is the first to analyze the sensory impairment of fish from CO2 seeps, where pH is similar to what climate models forecast for surface waters by the turn of the century. ´These results verify our laboratory

White babies just 15 months old show racial

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

And the CIA and the Pentagon either didn´t know about it or couldn´t get a drone there in time to strike. U.S. officials won´t comment on that, but every frame of the video is now being analyzed by the United States. In the middle of the clip, the man known as al Qaeda´s crown prince, Nasir al-Wuhayshi, appears brazenly out in the open, greeting followers in Yemen.

Democrats on healthcare: Reuters/Ipsos poll

WASHINGTON - Americans increasingly think Democrats have a better plan for healthcare than Republicans, according to a Reuters/Ipsos poll conducted after the White House announced that more people than expected had signed up for the "Obamacare" health plan. Nearly one-third of respondents in the online survey released on Tuesday said they prefer Democrats´ plan, policy or approach to healthcare, compared to just 18 percent for Republicans. This marks both an uptick in support for Democrats and a slide for Republicans since a similar poll in February.

You can tell it´s an election year because so many noncrises are suddenly urgent priorities. Real median household income is still lower than it was in 2007, the smallest share of Americans is working since 1978, and the Russians are marching west, but Democrats are training fire on race, gender and the grievances of identity politics. "We have this congenital disease, which is in midterm elections we don´t vote at the same rates," President Obama said at a Houston fundraiser the other day. He means that the Obama Democrats are now what they call the "coalition of the ascendent," made

CBO Dire Debt Warnings Show
Nation´s Democrat Future

Big Government: The Congressional Budget Office warns of a terrifying, unprecedented level of national debt in the coming decade. That fits nicely with Democrats´ objectives, but not with our nation´s founding principles. Andrew Jackson, who in 1835 succeeded in paying off the national debt, was famous for considering debt slavery. The current fiscal path the U.S. is on does indeed lead to slavery, but the slave masters of the future will be well-heeled politicians and federal bureaucrats, not plantation owners. The CBO´s new budget projections contain an eerie warning that we are on path from today´s already unfathomable $17.7 trillion in gross

Failure: ObamaCare fans are cheering the latest Congressional Budget Office report, which appears to show that it will cost less and cover more people than expected. But that´s true only if you ignore reality. We don´t always agree with the CBO, but we have long respected it as a credible source of budget numbers. Sure, its projections almost never turn out to be true. But simply too many variables are at play for anyone to guess such things perfectly, and it provides a more or less independent source of information on highly charged, partisan issues. Plus, its findings have a tendency to upset

Taxes: In his first campaign, President Obama pledged to cut taxes for all but the very rich. Now that another tax day has come and gone, it should be very clear that his pledge was just another in a long line of falsehoods. ´I can make a firm pledge," then-candidate Barack Obama said while campaigning back in 2008. "Under my plan no family making less than $250,000 a year will see any form of tax increase. Not your income tax, not your payroll tax, not your capital gains taxes, not any of your taxes." Now, almost six years after those comments, it´s

Harry Reid: The Desert
Fox Of Corruption

Corruption: The standoff in the Nevada desert wasn´t about a desert tortoise or a rancher´s failure to pay grazing fees. It was about the state´s senior senator again enriching himself and his family at public expense. Sunlight is said to be the best disinfectant, and the end, at least temporarily, to the Bureau of Land Management´s armed standoff with Cliven Bundy may be due in part to the exposure given to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid´s role in the attempt to confiscate Bundy´s cattle and shut down his ranch. "A tortoise isn´t the reason why BLM is harassing a 67-year-old rancher; they

WASHINGTON -- Latinos and immigration activists are warning of political peril for President Barack Obama and Democrats in the fall election unless the president acts boldly and soon to curb deportations and allow more immigrants to remain legally in the U.S. Many activists say Obama has been slow to grasp the emotions building within the Latino community as deportations near the 2 million mark for his administration and hopes for immigration legislation fade. With House Republicans unlikely to act on an overhaul, executive action by Obama is increasingly the activists´ only hope. "There is tremendous anger among core constituencies of the president

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

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.

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

WASHINGTON — Former President Jimmy Carter joined fellow Nobel laureates Wednesday in opposing Keystone XL, insisting that approving the pipeline would trigger “more climate upheaval” around the globe. In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come
