    Wow, now the Duck Dynasty is a RW voting block. Great.

    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.

    A&E has censored free speech. You should be just as incensed by that as you are about whatever he said. I'm sure if he had said "Homosexuality is cool in my book." and they had done what they did....all kinds of people would be demanding they be removed from the air.

    Actually, A&E, like Liberalism itself, is censoring free thought. He didn't say it on A&E, nor did it have any connection to A&E.

    All other stations issue disclaimers "He does not represent the views of this network." In this case though, those thoughts are not allowed by the liberal rulers.

    Liberalism and the thought police will see a huge backlash from this.

    That is drawing a parallel between gay sex and beastiality.

    Amen. I've found myself saying this a lot lately.

And if they aren't they're vile and offensive.

    Freedom of speech and tolerance OK as long as it confirms your side's point of view.

    Got it...

    What's that called.... oh yes, hypocritical. You must be so proud.
    This is not a free speech issue. His right to free speech has not been abridged.
