Too bad Duck Dynasty's Phil doesn't endorse Capital One. He'd still be working...Tweet by Chris Stigall, talk show host on 1210 a.m. Philadelphia's The Big Talker
- While I don't support many of the comments made by "Duck Dynasty's" Phil Robertson, it's clear to me his suspension has nothing to do with his remarks about homosexuality. The network and the PC fascists were targeting his religious beliefs.
- Last year, Robertson had a run-in with the show's producers. According to Robertson and others on the show, they censored the family's group prayers. He also alleged the producers inserted bleeps into the show to make it appear they were cussing. In other words, "A+E" knew exactly what they were getting with the "Dynasty" cast just as MSNBC knew what they were getting in hiring Alex Baldwin.
- But the difference between Baldwin, Bashir, Schultz, Mathews and others is the tolerance and support the PC fascists appear to have for progressives as opposed to anyone on the political right or Christians (and those knuckleheads voiced their opinions on the air). In the case of the "Dynasty"cast, they've committed several unforgivable sins in the eyes of the progressives. In addition to being fervent Christians, they also like to shoot guns, hunt and they're country folk---wealthy country folk, but country folk nevertheless. Need I remind you when Pres. Obama was campaigning in 2008, he criticized small town Americans for being bitter clingers to their guns and to their faith. It's a mantra the progressives proclaim over and over again. So why should anyone be surprised the hammer came down on Phil Robertson? After all, he's the type of guy Obama was talking about.
- John Nolte of Breitbart wrote it best today: "For some in the left-wing media, the goal posts are starting to move in their anti-Christian jihad against everyone who believes in the Bible." In another piece, Nolte appears to support my claim. He wrote, "The major media are merely using Robertson's quotes to advance their own anti-Christian bigotry by smearing Christian beliefs as de fact bigotry..." In other words, the implication is that Christians are anti-gay and that's the farthest thing from the truth.
- But in this controversy, the media failed to highlight what else Phil Robertson said: "Our culture has accepted two huge lies. The first is that if you disagree with someone's lifestyle, you must fear or hate them. The second it that to love someone means you agree with everything they believe or do. Both are nonsense. You don't have to compromise convictions to be compassionate." Allow me to add. The Left has embraced the Pope in recent months. Yet the Left is blind to the fact that the Pope would agree with Robertson's statement above, especially the last sentence.
