    Most gays don't watch the show nor did the know who he was, so why would they care what he said?

    I am Jewish. Do I care what anybody says about Jews?
    That didn't work out so well in 1930's Europe. Now did it?

    Does it affect my life in any way? No it doesn't.
    Uh, yes it does. If a bunch of armed rednecks ran around calling Jews Jesus killers, you'd start to feel intimidated. Trust me.

    So the people making the outcry about the duck guy only care about "freedom of speech" when the person is famous? Yeah, sounds about right. Being conservative also helps, looks like....

    The point is that nobody knows who she is or the situation in order to get outraged.

    A lot of people watch this show and feel they know the guy and that is why they are speaking out.

    How can somebody get outraged about something they know nothing about?

    It's all over the news media. I can't imagine there is someone left who hasn't heard about her.

    The blow back is only going to hurt A&E not that there is anything else to watch on that channel anyway. DD is the number 1 rated reality show on TV.
    anywhere from 10-14m people watch that show. last year DD did 440m dollars in business.

    What A&E should have done is what all TV stations do issue a simple context that most TV shows use on these types of the things.

    The Feinged outrage in this country is getting sickening. people need to put on their big boy pants and grow up. we are becoming a sissified nation where heaven forbid someone gets offended.

    cry me a river build me a bridge and get over it.

    Can somebody please tell me how this could be seen as intolerance?
    It's not.

    All of the uproar is manufactured, specifically by glaad.

    Anyone looking at the "Duck Dynasty" uproar may wonder why A&E didn't warn Phil Robertson about the dangers of talking too much to reporters.

    But it now looks like they did.

    Robertson, the long-bearded patriarch of the clan of Louisiana duck-call merchants, is on "hiatus" from filming episodes of the No. 1-rated cable reality show after giving a GQ magazine interview where he made anti-gay remarks and questioned the need for the civil-rights movement. GLAAD and theNAACP, among others, condemned the comments. But thousands of fans - and even Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal - have rushed to his defense, touching off the latest skirmish in the national culture war. Late Thursday, the family said it might not want to continue the show without Phil.

    The scandal has turned into the kind of tempest network executives feared all along. A&E knew of Robertson's controversial views - expounded in videotaped sermons and elsewhere - before the show premiered in spring 2012, and warned him not to overshare on hot-button topics such as gay rights and race relations, according to a producer familiar with the situation. Phil and other family members also probably signed contracts containing "morals clauses" in which they promised to, among other things, avoid anything that would embarrass or bring shame to A&E or the brand. Such clauses are standard in the entertainment and sports industries.

    He has a different opinion from other people oh dear God no!

    That's ignorant. Me and blanket want to play.



    If A&E had a contract and Phil the duck man broke it then I don't see the problem here with suspending the filming of the show. On the other hand it seems like such a waste for A&E over one man expressing his opinion. Some people think differently about things then other people.
    I believe half of the things I say and say half of the things I believe.
