As I said, all it accomplishes is to push such attitudes and views underground and lend legitimacy to them through the perception of persecution. You're better off just using your own public podium to address them and reveal them for the stupidity they are
    Bullchit, economic attacks upon those holding anti-societal (homophobic, racist) view are completely legitimate and are among the the most effective tool for eliminating their influence.

    Point is--the Right chooses the most despicable spokespeople. And, instead of cutting ties with the Slut calling Limbaugh, the race-baiting Pailn, and the homophobic Robertson, they double down and stay with the rich con artists as the sinking ship called the GOP continues to go down.

    However, I am now seeing why that is...you guys are completely tone deaf. You have no idea that you're alienating more and more people every single day. That is truly stunning.

    You're a great spokesperson yourself.

    That's just it. They don't realize the massive rising tide which has turned against hate speech. I imagine that the fact that entertainment companies aim for the 18-30 crowd, will do everything in their power not to offend them, goes whoosh over their heads.

    I suspect it's living in the Fox Bubble coming back to haunt them. After all, how many Right Wingers were so disconnected from reality that they swore Romney would win on election day eve?

    Which is exactly why I think this has played out the way it has. Didn't someone say he has a Masters in communication? If so, I would think he has had a fair amount of sociology classes and would know the results his words would bring. This was premeditated in my opinion, and he /the brand is benefitting from it no doubt.

    I think the "Dynasty" is brilliant. THe show was well done--A+, actually. And, the business side of the Duck Command will only grow at this point. Agreed.

    He has a masters in education. He knows exactly what the repercussions of his bigoted and racist rhetoric would be. Problem is he thought that because A&E was making so much money that they would let him get away with it.
    The asshole thought wrong.
