    Did you think that all of television is going to collapse following that suspension?

    You forget how short the 21st century American attention span is.

    Nope, just illustrating the point that the show is simply a replaceable item on a tawdry television line-up.

    looks like he knew what he was getting into. so probably nothing. besides, the guy is fairly bigoted against those not of his culture (all the yuppie comments for example), so he probably is enjoying the stir a bit. Still a cool guy in my opinion, despite his flaws, but we all got flaws.

    Thing is, his whole character is contrived. Perhaps it's well contrived, but it's fake nonetheless.

    He's playing the role of a parody, much like Stephen Colbert.

    Hell, they are just a bunch of yuppies:

    That's Willie Robertson, you know before the show.

    Well, anyone can selectively pick out bible quotes about a subject and say "I'm not judging", when it's obvious they're using the source to back up a personal opinion. Though I can deal better with people who are honest about their ideas than others who're are sneaky and phony about it. Like if someone ever tells you watching a baby being born is the most natural and beautiful thing, RUN! It's like an emerging bloody Spam with a purple worm hanging off of it.

I was as pissed off at the Christian lady who threatened "Married With Children" as I am with people attacking Phil Robertson. In any of these cases of attacking their advertisers and television carriers it's simply a bully tactic.

    The Dixie Chicks, I never felt sorry for as they went out of their way to make an unsolicited statement, they attacked their own core audience.
    I don't disagree with his right to an opinion or A&E's response. But they're really caricatures of a southerner. My hillbilly uncles from the mountains of Virginia lived in a less modern environment and didn't look as "bumpkin". I'm not overly swayed one way or the other over extreme ideology. It's a sign of simple mindedness to me.

    Phil is similar to the Dixie Chicks in that they're not being smart about mixing political views with their profession of entertainment. I don't like it when any of those famous people use their notoriety as a platform to express their ideas. Clooney, Penn, Sarandon, Jolie etc are numb-nuts. If there job was op-ed, then fine otherwise their views don't impress me one way or the other.

    Re: Duck Dynasty

    He had a right to say what he said. GLAAD had a right to respond to what he said. A&E had a right to suspend him. It also looks like A&E had warned Phil about being so outspoken. So pretty much all this equals is a big deal about people having the right to do something and no one's rights being violated. The only positive thing that can come out of this is reality TV dies.
