    re: 'Duck Dynasty': A&E warned Phil Robertson about speaking out too much [W:1111]

    Where's the danged outrage for all those rotten "libbos" who were fired (and rightfully so) after exercising their First Amendment rights to insult and excoriate various people and ideologies? I'm thinking Martin Bashir, Mark Halperin, Alec Baldwin, Keith Olbermann, and all the others who were let go after their employer exercised it's right to fire their asses after considerable outrage from conservatives and others over their insulting remarks.

    We all have the right to free speech; we do not have a right to be exempt from the consequences of it.

    Please go back and read the quote, the complete quote.


    Yes, he was talking about sins in the FULL quote, but what has people's panties in a wad was that he compared homosexuality with bestiality as one of the various sexual sins (including sex outside of marriage).

    I think the issue could have been avoided if the interviewer hadn't set him up. He HAD to know how Robertsin was going to answer the question and if he did, he shouldn't have asked the question.

    The Libbos might want to temper their outrage. The Duck Dynasty vote has already gotten one United States congressman elected. It would suck for the Libbos if every single member of theDuck block voted against a Democrat, because of the way the Libbos treated Phil Robertson.

    Making a big deal out of this is a bad business decision for A&E and a bad political move for the Libbos.
    no, just remember he's employed and signed a clause to be prudent.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    He was quoting the Bible, not stating his own opinion.

    They shouldn't have been fired, either.

    What's next? Get fired voting the wrong way? We have the right to vote; we do not have the right to be exempt from the concequences?

    He did both. Blacks being happy being second class was not in the bible.

    You don't vote in public.

    I believe it was. Both comments were talked about when discussing that interview last week.

    You're right and here is what he actually said, not the totally misquoted bull**** that's been posted, here...

    "... Where we lived was all farmers. The blacks worked for the farmers. I hoed cotton with them. I’m with the blacks, because we’re white trash. We’re going across the field.... They’re singing and happy. I never heard one of them, one black person, say, ‘I tell you what: These doggone white people’—not a word!... Pre-entitlement, pre-welfare, you say: Were they happy? They were godly; they were happy; no one was singing the blues.”

    I'm sure he must be mistaken, because black folks are much happier now with black on black crime being what it is, the drug epidemic within the black community and 50% of black men are unemployed.
