The “Duck Dynasty” family has issued its statement on Phil Robertson’s suspension for his remarks on homosexuality and sin. As posted on the Duck Commander site:

We want to thank all of you for your prayers and support.  The family has spent much time in prayer since learning of A&E’s decision.  We want you to know that first and foremost we are a family rooted in our faith in God and our belief that the Bible is His word.  While some of Phil’s unfiltered comments to the reporter were coarse, his beliefs are grounded in the teachings of the Bible. Phil is a Godly man who follows what the Bible says are the greatest commandments: “Love the Lord your God with all your heart” and “Love your neighbor as yourself.” Phil would never incite or encourage hate.We are disappointed that Phil has been placed on hiatus for expressing his faith, which is his constitutionally protected right.We have had a successful working relationship with A&E but, as a family, we cannot imagine the show going forward without our patriarch at the helm.  We are in discussions with A&E to see what that means for the future of Duck Dynasty.   Again, thank you for your continued support of our family.

      No Phil, no show on A&E. CMT picked up Dog the Bounty Hunter and that program was well past its prime. Robertsons have the whip hand here, and if anything their statement was kinder and more diplomatic than it needed to be. Classy people, and they’re on the right side here by any relevant measure.

      • TexasMom2012

        A&E the GLAAD network from now on. Great marketing strategy: offend your base viewers to appease the 5% of the nation who are gay and most of whom would never watch a show that ends with a prayer. Wow, A&E and their knee jerk reaction just shot themselves in the foot over this one. They could have come out and said that they were not supportive of Roberson’s viewpoint but that speech is free and he is entitled to his view of the Bible. The marketing guys over there need to be fired because they just kicked the fire ant bed, you know the one left from Chick fil A?

  • http://amandakmelson.wordpress.com/ GreenEyedGal

    A&E has really screwed up on this one. But not to worry. I’m sure the gay community will line their pockets better than Duck Dynasty did! Or not. God bless that family.

      Talk about cutting off their nose to spite their face. Moral considerations aside, this was an incredibly stupid business decision.

      DD Family is super smart.

  • Conservative First

    Sounds like a perfect time for Phil and Willie to consider political runs.

    • therealguyfaux ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

      Think Willie hasn’t thought about it? It’d be real surprising if he hasn’t.

      The question is, though, whether people in New Orleans, Baton Rouge (and even Shreveport, closer to their neck of the woods) would take a camo-clad Taliban-looking (to them, at any rate) candidate seriously, regardless of what stances he might have on the issues. How much “smoothing-out” would be expected of him, and how much would he agree to?

      • Conservative First

        Something I’ve learned is people only go for looks when there’s nothing else to vote for. Willie and Phil’s stances will wake a sleeping giant of conservatism that showed it’s head in 2010, and during the ChickFilA thing. I personally don’t see that being an issue, It’s been ages since we’ve had politicians of substance, they are now starting to come out of the woodwork.

        • therealguyfaux ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

          You’d hope so anyway, but even media that might be sympathetic to Willie probably couldn’t resist bringing up the “Taliban” question. And you know damned well the MSM will. Anything to distract from what he might have to say of importance to the people of Louisiana.

          • Conservative First

            I have to add that I reject the premise that they look taliban. Additionally, we have Presidents in our history who had beards (President Hayes for example) and a large swath of our country who also do, not to mention they are coming back into popularity. Also they have the benefit that it’ll be hard for the MSM to define them, since they’ve done an outstanding job of defining themselves.

          • therealguyfaux ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

            I’m sorry, but men with long beards dressed in camo look more than passingly like the Taliban, and there’s plenty of pictures of them dressed that way, as opposed to dressed in casual clothes they ordinarily wear “off-season.”. You know they’re no such thing, and I know they’re no such thing, but to what extent does Willie “sell out” if he wears suits and looks more like Abraham Lincoln or U.S. Grant, than R.B. Hayes or Benjamin Harrison? The “Backwoodsman Daniel Boone”-type image might sell to some people, but would it be an unnecessary distraction?

          • Conservative First

            You keep your shallow viewpoint, and I’ll stay in reality.

            As to if it’s an unnecessary distraction, I don’t think so. I would rather they run as themselves, then run as someone fake.

            Do you think it was wrong for them to decline Barbara Walter’s interview because they wanted to go hunting?

            I’m tired of fake people. And so far the Robertson family have proved their anything but fake.

          • therealguyfaux ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

            Listen, I don’t share any of that “shallowness” you seem to think I do. I’m giving you a dose of reality. I would vote for Willie if he shaved his head and wore a loincloth. I vote based on what a candidate is saying, not the way (s)he looks. But sadly, way too many people are put off by Willie’s appearance. Sorry if that’s a bit of a discordant note in the choir here in the echo chamber, but face it– the man’s gotta get elected. If not enough people in Louisiana share my substance-over-style viewpoint, then he ain’t gettin’ in. That simple. The question is, are there enough people who don’t give a rat’s tail what he looks like to get him in. You would hope so and I would hope so. But this IS the America that elected Barry, remember– this IS the dumbed-down “Kimye” media in now almost 2014.

          • Steve in Katy

            realguyfaux, where are you from? I enjoy reading your threads because you think like me but communicate it better than I could, but on this topic I don’t think you give the South much credit. The Gov of Louisiana isn’t a typical looking resident. Most of us down here care more of the substance.

          • Red Fred

            That’s marketing their brand. A very successful marketing I might add. Their departure from looking like everyone else is part of their success. No, they don’t look like Taliban, they look like Southern hunters, Southern hunters with lots of ching in their pockets and beautiful wives.

          • therealguyfaux ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

            “…[W]ith lots of ching in their pockets and beautiful wives.”

            That’s because the GOP didn’t put up anybody of substance to go against them. We keep letting the liberal MSM tell us who our candidates should be.

      • Shannon

        You’re kidding right? You know that they don’t normally look like that. They grew the beards and became the backwoods looking people for the show. Before that they were clean cut wealthy suburbanites that looked like they should be in Tommy Hilfinger commercials. The only one that might have really been what they portray on TV is Phil. Serious! Google them before Duck Dynasty.

    • WhoDat

      There were rumors Willie would run for LA-5, but he decided to support the unknown candidate, and that candidate won.

      • Conservative First

        While I’d be happy to see either of them in any federal position, I’m thinking a senate run would be just what we needed. I’m thinking one of them gives Mary Landrieu a run for her money.

          What, specifically, did Robertson say that you think is bigotry.

        • luigi

          You need to rethink your idea of bigotry. Saying ‘I don’t believe or support the gay lifestyle’ is not bigotry. Saying ‘I hate the fags’ or ‘I’m gonna beat every gay person I see with a sledgehammer’ is bigotry.

        • Nightvalzin

          Neither does Phil. He explicitly said that he respects regardless of who they are, but it’s the act of homosexuality itself which is sinful.

          • QueenB ✓

            Funny how no one who supports A & E’s decision fails to mention that part.

        • kizzy

          Ma’am, Doesn’t the bible say it is a sin? I believe it states it in Romans and Corinthians, but you say you believe in the bible …so do you think your a bigot as well, since you also believe in the bible? You’re not very logical.

        • http://xirtamatrix.com yourmamatoo

        • Kyle Bradelle

          The man reads the same Bible you say you do. Have you read the actual interview or have you merely accepted the LSM talking points about “gay bashing”? Because Phil didn’t bash gays, he bashed sin. 96-99% of the LSM talking points, on both this topic and any other you care to name, are lies.

        • Diane Rinaldi

          Hate speech = truth you don’t like to hear, apparently…God’s word is the truth and, being a Christian, you would AGREE with it, as Phil simply did. He didn’t say anything hateful. He bluntly spoke the truth without denigrating anyone. Hope your twins are more truth focused than you are.

    • QueenB ✓

      “No loss” for A & E? You are kidding, right?

      Really? What are you sowing? How many farms have you raised fruits, vegetables, cotton, fish, cattle, milk cows, chickens on and taken to the stockyards, to harvest and refined the finish product, packaged, trucked to markets and retailers and branded and jumped through how many invisible government hoops and paid horrendous fed, state and local taxes, and made your employees payroll up to this point in time?

      What the Robertson’s need to do is:

      1. Buy a crapload of GoPro HD cameras (I see a sporsorship right there!)

      2. Hire some of the cameramen as their personal employees
      3. Film the show as usual, edit it on a macbook with Final Cut, and stream it on the Duck Commander website.
      4. Profit!

  • therealguyfaux ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

    The question is whether the show, which is Willie’s show, is so much about the patriarch Phil and his moral and practical guidance of the whole crazy bunch of them, or whether it’s really just about the crazy bunch of them. To the extent there is a narrative of “Phil at the helm, both of the biz and at home,” it’s gonna be real hard to do it without filming Phil, right? But to the extent that the family is willing to say “It’s the whole family,” they might be able to work something else out.

  • Rich

    I enjoy that show so much. Where ever they go, I will follow.

  • Brother bob

    A&e should cease and desist any showing of duck dynasty immediately. Every episode has Phil in it so you sick libtards should be honest and not have anymore showings otherwise you expose yourselves as hypocrites.

AND contact all the sponsors for the show..let them know how you feel and support the ROBERSON’S

  • ellen phelps

    I just wanted to take the time to thank Mr. Robertson for being such an amazing witness for Jesus.

    What did A&E think they were getting with him?

    He did nothing wrong. He did not use his own words regarding homosexuals. He quoted scripture. If they have a problem with what he said, then they have a problem with God.
    The Bible says that believers will be persecuted. It is starting.
    Stand firm Robertson Clan!!!
    We love y’all !!
    Merry CHRISTmas!!!

    • Onyx

      “He did not use his own words…” I didn’t realize he was quoting the Bible there. Where in the New Testament can I find the parable of the desirable vagina and the undesirable anus?

        • Onyx

          I’m responding directly to @ellen_phelps:disqus’ ridiculous assertion that Phil only quoted scripture, and didn’t use his own words regarding homosexuals. No matter what the right wing believes, if he had said, “I believe, based on what the Bible says, that homosexual conduct is sinful,” he wouldn’t have been suspended. Ad libbing about specific body parts and bestiality is what got him the boot.

        The Bible condemns homosexuality because it goes against GOD’S (not Mr. Robertson’s) plan for a NATURAL sexual relationship between a MAN and a WOMAN in marriage.This is covered in The New Testament in Romans, 1:18-32 and 1:26-27. Of course there is not a parable about the desirable vagina and undesirable anus. Mr. Robertson’s words vebatum were as follows,” It seems to me a vagina- as a man- would be more desirable than a man’s anus.” God created ADAM and EVE not ADAM and STEVE. Homosexual acts are called shameful and those who live this lifestyle will receive “the penalty for their error.” This goes for all sin because not one is greater than the other. We have all forgotten that this country was founded on Christian beliefs. As I stated before, and this is very simple, if you have a problem with this, you have a problem with God, he will be happy to educate you further in HIS word. Take it up with him and leave Mr. Robertson alone. God Bless Phil Robertson!!

      • ellen phelps

        Romans 1:18-32, 26-27; 1 Corinthians 6:9; 1 Timothy 1:10. The Bible is very clear about sexual sin. Homosexuality goes against nature. It goes against God’s plan for a natural sexual relationship between a man and woman in marrige. Mr. Robertson’s words from the GQ article are as follows, verbatum, ” It seems to me- a vagina- as a man- would be more desirable than a man’s anus.” That’ s why God created ADAM and EVE not ADAM and STEVE. If you have a problem with the word of GOD then you need to pick up your cross and take it up with him. I, along with millions of others, beleive in HIS word. This is the problem with the world today, we keep pushing GOD out of it. This country was founded on Christianity. Today, everything goes, what’s right is wrong and what’s wrong is right. A modern day Sodom and Gommorah. Shame on us……

    I was just commenting the other day to my wife about A&E and how they do not understand what they have with Duck Dynasty. The past two seasons of DD A&E has used this highly successful show as a lead in to new shows they are trying to get off the ground. The first show was Bates Motel, and now it is a show called Rodeo Girls (I believe). Both these shows, imo, do not take advantage of the audience that is watching DD. Instead of developing shows which could have a cross-over audience, they are trying to promote shows — by-in-large — are out of the cross-over area.

    I say this because it is obvious with the reaction of the DD fans to this Phil Phiring A&E does not understand conservatives, at all.

    • Kyle Bradelle

      And Rodeo Girls is as unwatchable, as is 99% of the rest of reality TV.

  • H50 ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

    Classy family. Get off A&E, clearly they dont value your family or the viewers. I hope your show can move to another cable station and take your viewers with you. Godspeed in your next endeavor. I stand behind your right to speak your views without rancor or repercussions.

    • Discontentwliars

      I agree – A&E was hoping the bearded, conservatives, Religious people would become somebody to mock, but these intelligent business people enjoyed their life, and drew a huge audience. First opportunity – jump on what they say or do to make a point. They are within their rights to suspend him. But from what I’ve read, the Magazine and press are the ones that are trying to put words in his mouth. Sin is after all, sin. My prayers are the truth actually comes out, all those that are making things up actually see and hear the word. Those that are trying to suppress the Word, or malign it should actually read it. Of course, I’m just a believer standing with those that believe.

  • AmericanMom

    No compromise when it comes to God and the Bible. God bless the entire Robertson family and thank Phil for standing his ground as a Christian.

    Well, the good news is that as a result of this the entire national stage is now filled with people finally standing up to be counted for their faith and not kowtowing to a bunch of leftist politically correct evil. The entire nation has come alive over this and that takes in a great many people who simply don’t have time for television. When you decide to step on the Bible and the faithful you’re strepping into a hornets nest and this hornets nest is made up of people from all walks of life. Everyone raise your voices loud and clear!

  • topbond101

    In Phil’s original context, he added that drunks and terrorists will also need to answer to God. I mean, that’s interesting, you didn’t see any alcoholics come out in swarms denouncing Phil as an alcoholophobe or something like that. Well here’s the other interesting thing, I’m a 21 year old college student and just found out a few months ago that my dad has been a closeted alcoholic for at least the past ten years. And I never knew about it before hand. That was a sad day finding out, with my mom, brother, and him crying along with me once I found out. It’s just awful knowing that my dad wants to escape his predicament so badly but it’s near to impossible. I said I loved him no matter what, and he told me he needs to make a change after I said I’d pray for him. Anyway, here’s the point, Phil including drunks in his context didn’t offend me. It’s true, it can ruin your life. But the big difference is that my dad is so self-sacrificing in his faith that he keeps on loving my family and the Lord anyway despite his hurtful lifestyle. And my mom is a real trooper also, staying with him all this time. I pray for all of you here also and for your families in these end times.

    • Discontentwliars

      I’m with you and add my prayers for your family and father. It’s hard on everyone in the family, and I understand your dad’s problem. One hour, one day, one month at a time. God bless…

    This “culture war” is really a religious war between the two most famous Jews in history over who will rule the hearts and minds of mankind; Jesus, the Jewish Christ or Karl Marx, the Jewish End Times Anti-Christ. It is going to get worst for Christians before Jesus intervenes and cleans up this depraved world. The children of Satan (John 8:37-47) dominate entertainment, the media and politics, so it is time for Christians to get out of those anti-Christian, Sodom and Gomorrah entities and concentrate on encouraging other Christians, zealously sharing their faith with the lost sheep around them, and spreading the Gospel. There isn’t much time left ! (2 Timothy 4:1-4)

    • Malcolm Reynolds

      “‘a religious war between the two most famous Jews in history ”
      Wow. I’ve never thought of it this way. Very profound thoughts!

  • Hoosierdaddy

    Still don’t understand how u suspend someone from a reality show. Tell him not to be with his family? Laughable.

  • BAW

    When I read, “A source close to the show tells FOX411 that even if Robertson apologized, at this point, A&E is done with him…”

    I thought the Robertson family ought to be done with A&E.

    But I knew that they were nicer and more forgiving than I am. And it seems they are going to give A&E a chance to make this right.

    I doubt seriously A&E will have the class or decency to do that (unless they are making even more money than I think they are). But I’m sure the Robertsons will make an even more entertaining show without the directions and advice I’m sure they have received from A&E, if that’s what they want to do.

    A&E I think shot themselves in the foot. And only through the grace of the Robertsons could they possibly save themselves. We’ll see.

  • GTR003121

    How can anyone hate this family? Even some liberal gays think A&E and the gay mafia are going too far with the outrage.

  • LoneRangler

    A&E inserts bleeps when no profanity is used. A&E edits out all mention of Jesus. Why would this family want to stay with them? They don’t need the money. But A&E certainly needs the ratings of the most popular cable program EVER.

    If you want to buy/support Duck Commander-make sure you buy from their site because everything in the local retailers is attached to A&E.

  • PatriotRG

    There are many Imams in the USA and in the UK in the religion of Islam that preach death to homosexuals on a daily basis in Mosques. This is the so called mainstream Islam. This is not a mild ineffectual benign disapproval of their ways of gays as in the Christian religion but the preaching of DEATH. Homosexuality is punishable by death in many Muslim countries.

    The left in the USA and the gay community deliberately turn a blind eye and go very deaf when the worlds most violent fascistic religion puts forth its sick beliefs’
    with respect to gays on a daily basis.

    Christianity is a safer easier target. After all no one is going to cut your head off for disagreeing with them.

    Its the easy cowardly faux moral outrage of the left that sickens me. If they truly want to be outraged – how about focusing on the religion the hangs gays on construction cranes. Or preaches death to them ? Or throws acid in little girls faces for going to school ?

    Easier to pick on an old man for expressing his views.

  • josh222

    Awesome! Great Godly family! Please go with Glenn Beck’s offer to run the show on his network! A&E should lose their shirts for this (to say the least). Let them get some gay show that no one will watch!

    I guess it is A&E’s policy to micromanage the speech of “reality tv” talent? I realize this stuff is scripted to a certain extent but I do wonder how writing a script for them makes it “real life”. Good luck with your business model A&E it appears you have fumbled on your only successful endeavor.

    DD will get another network to keep the show going. A & E has shown their true colors, those of hate and disgust. The beliefs of Phil’s is also the family’s as well. For those that don’t know, that network is the property of none other than Disney. Yeah, the homosexual loving network with its theme parks, sports networks, and even over-the-top prices for their toys and movies. Nice going Disney, you just screwed yourselves as DD will show up on another network, you lost while DD wins big time.

  • OLLPOH ~ OurLifeLiberty

    Thank you Robertson Family for your statement. May GOD keep you and bless you all the rest of the days of your lives!

  • Thomas Carr

    I agree with the statement “NO Phil, NO SHOW” Other
    celebrities have made statements saying people need to be killed for not
    agreeing with their political or personal views. In their liberal microcosm
    they are held up by their peers and a hero. That is absolutely wrong.
    Phil Robertson made a statement based on his religious faith. While others
    worship a political figure or their belief in science Mr. Phil had stayed
    resolute in his faith of God and love of family. He has raised his sons to be
    good men and led his family by example with his dedication to God. I wish I had
    a male figure like him when I was growing up.

    Phil Robertson is a very wise man. All he has done is walk in obedience to God. People cannot handle the truth anymore. They want everything sugar coated so it sits well in their stomach and don’t cramp their lifestyle. What was he supposed to do? Condone what he knows god hates. A Godly man cannot go against what he knows is correct in the eyes of God. Now, anyone who has a problem with that should take it up with God, period. A&E have just been looking for a reason to get the Robertsons off the air anyway. Well they don’t have sense enough to see they are cutting off the hand that feeds them. I for one will ab!solutely not watch that channel again, and I like some of their programming, but I will be blocking A&E and any other chnls affiliated with them!! We love all YOU ROBERTSONS and don’t ya’ll worry cause God has Y’all right in the palm of HIS ALMIGHTY HANDS!! A&E onthe other hand might want to consider what they have done, then get down on their knees in repentance. You don’t go messing with Gods annointed. He is paying attention and the Robertsons are gonna be just fine!! We love you Phil and Ms Kay. Keep walking in obedience and there are oh so many who can learn a lot by following yalls example. Myself being one of them. All Christians have just got to start standing up for our beliefs and Godly standards no matter whose toes gets stepped on. God has to come first or we ain’t got nothing and we are nothing!!

    Quite possibly an opportunity for Duck dynasty to go to another cable channel that will support them along with their fans.

    If its a show about the mob family The Gambino’s it’s just fine with A&E, that’s just in the past…

        Here’s another question: Why does Sandra not find the idea of one man sticking his penis in another man’s orifices to be “sick,” but views someone criticizing such acts to be guilty of uttering “sick remarks”? Maybe Sandra is the one who’s sick.

    Although I agree that the Suspension of Phil Roberson is an particularly aggreigious thing, this is what I hope the family does: As Phil said we are to love everyone after we love GOD. I think it would be wonderful if they could as a Christian Family decide to “LOVE” A&E and kill them with kindness. Show the network the true love of Chirst and forgive them for their stupid mistake. Perhaps that shocking behavior would bring A&E to their senses!

    This is not a 1st Amendment issue and frankly the concept for this being an infringement on his freedom of speech is grossly misinterpreted.

    “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances”.

    You might know that as part of the First Amendment to the United States Constitution, and over the years the concept of the Living Breathing Constitution was co-oped by the SCOTUS to imply Americans have protection for all of their own speech or anything they do is ‘Freedom of Speech’. With the Phil Robertson controversy, it’s perhaps high time to understand what the First Amendment is really meant to be about.

    There are 3 main factors to the First Amendment.

    The first point: “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof;” – What Congress was not allowed to do was passing laws that gave preferential treatment to one religion over another, or prevented from passing laws that targeted the rights to citizens who practiced their own religion of choice.

    The second point: “or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press” – The printed press at the time of the Revolutionary War was heavily censored and usually shut down by the Red Coats. Also citizens were prohibited from speaking against the rule of King George in public. Nowadays the word Press would cover Newspapers, Television, Radio, Magazines, Websites, Blogs, or Pamphlets. The freedom of speech meant everyday citizens from speaking critical of authority, standing on a soap box and expressing their own opinions via public speaking. In today’s world, that would be the public using current social media to present a view, recording a You Tube, Tweeting, Podcasting, calling a talk radio show, or public speaking (assuming anyone does this anymore). Congress are prevented from passing laws that limited any of these types of activity.

    The third point: “or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances” – Which means no Government could prevent the public from assembling en masse. Also the public had the right to air their concerns over any decisions made by their elected officials, and no laws were to be passed that prevented these rights.

    The main aspect of the First Amendment is how the Congress is to act, as not to infringe upon the rights of the citizens with any future legislation. Over the years, the public has co-oped the First Amendment to cover their own public behavior, that one’s opinion is a right. The point which is lost at large is that the First Amendment is only a deal between Congress, there is no deal between the Public and the Public themselves, that’s where social etiquette comes into the picture.

    Once upon a time it was acceptable to sing the ‘Frito Bandito song, to express personal bias against a person’s skin pigmentation, and to ridicule a persons religious or sexual preference. It all ended when certain people felt it was necessary to point out the error of such views, and so they took to shunning and public humiliation towards those that continued such behavior. Call it behavior, manners, or political correctness, these are the unwritten rules that really cover social speech, not the First Amendment.

    To the person who thinks the First Amendment will cover whatever BS comes out of their mouth, to the person who thinks the First Amendment is their right at throwing rocks through the window of Walmart, or even that person who pontificates to no end about how America needs to become a ‘Christian Theocracy’ and shun everything else that is not via the prism of their preferred sect of Christianity, let me say this to you: “Unless you are personally experiencing issues from members of Congress, Assemblyman, a State or Federal Senator, or the even the frigging President themselves, The First Amendment is not covered by your antics.

    While Phil Robertson is free to express his personal views/religious views, he comments are at the mercy of the public, which is why A&E have acted like they have. If the Government was attacking Robertson for making comments against them, that would be a violation of his First Amendment rights.

    • John Campbell ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ ᵀʳᵘᵐᵖ

      Your entire post is utter hogwash. It’s filled with every leftist diatribe attempt to actually subvert the Constitution in favor of attempting to overthrow it from within the government in favor of socialism. Surely you didn’t think that old material was somehow going to get new life now?

      Of course to the socialist government cult god worshiper it might be an effective attempt, but when you start out with “Living Breathing Constitution” it’s a dead giveaway what you’re really all about. Personally, I’ll stick with the Doctrine of Original Intent. As the founders intended.

          Rex, in the strange chance that I might be wrong about you, and I’m not perfect, I took the liberty of reading some of your past postings. What seems to be now as my mistake is also slivered with things that just don’t add up. Some of the wording you used is laced with what I already, and have known for many a year, to be leftist propaganda, but it’s as if you don’t seem to recognize it. At least that’s the take I’m beginning to think. I’m wondering a lot of things now. How is this possible, for one.

          In one of your posts you stated: “Come to Kern County, and you will find the last bastion of Old California.” Are you in Kern County?

    • TexasMom2012

      As far as I can tell, there is such a double standard about what people are to be allowed to say to make your well written piece a farce. Did you realize that Roberson paraquoted the bible? Did you see that he was immediately suspended? That is what happens to conservatives. Do you remember when Trent Lott made a joke about Strom Thurmond being president on his 100 birthday celebration and was vilified so much that he lost his Senate seat over it? Or George Allen lost his seat over a throw away line in a speech that was a term that no one had ever heard of> The left specializes in selective outrage. Roberson has no power over any portion of government and is in no position to force his views on others. But GLAAD had the power to force A&E to suspend him, so exactly who had the power here? On the other side, lib politicians are completely free to call their opposition teabaggers, terrorists, bomb throwers. They are free to compare Republicans to purple cool aid drinkers in Jonestown. They are free in the press to make up stories and fail to vet them. They are free to accuse an innocent member of the tea party in Colorado of a mass shooting and no one pays a price. They are free to wish death on Bush and to call him Bushitler and to make movies about his assassination. They are free to publish vile tweets in response to WW2 vet and former President HW Bush very first tweet. Martin Bashir said the vilest thing about Palin and paid no price for weeks.They are free to call minorities with whom they disagree: Uncle Toms and traitors and they are free to publish vile cartoons about them. My point is that we are all allowed free speech in this country but only conservatives ever seem to pay any price for that and they pay that price swiftly while libs seldom if ever pay any price. This is true in Congress as well.
      I could spend all day giving you examples of the double standard as applied to speech but I believe that I have made my point. And the truth is that I am as tired of this as I am about the over extended use of the race card.

      • John Campbell ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ ᵀʳᵘᵐᵖ

        Ya know, this is funny. Go back to where Rex states:

        ridicule a persons religious or sexual preference.”

        My wife is a Mexican. She has a Permanent Residency. My daughter is a Mexican blood, born here in the U.S. I sing that Frito Bandito song to them often and they love it. I can hardly wait for Rex to call me a racist. :o)

      Erosion of your natural rights and laws is being done by whom, and why?

        Be careful. Rex’s post is filled with attempt’s to entrap for promotion of socialist agenda. Half truths are their order of the day.

      We get it that it’s not a First Amendment issue. Probably more than your cut and paste comment.

      What we don’t like, and by “we” I mean all people who are tired of the double standard BS, is the fact that political correctness is taking over. Why are his comments met almost immediately with a suspension? Why did it take MONTHS for Martin Bashir, who made MUCH more offensive remarks on air (not in print), to be suspended? It’s not about offensive remarks, it’s all about what group you’re offending. THAT’S what we don’t like.

    A&E sure didn’t mind exploiting the mentally ill like hoarders and
    the over eaters, even to the point of documenting about their death from
    their addiction to food and their co-dependent food pushers….just good TV
    eh guys?

    The A & E network is partly owned by Disney-ABC. Don’t just go after Duck Dynasty marathons or the new season which is coming. They will cynically air these for the money while denouncing Phil’s statements and trying to mold him to tow the corporate line. Their values (Disney-ABC) are best displayed on GMA where one host is a Clinton campaign operative (though not officially), another is a lesbian, and the former weatherman was recently married to his boyfriend. This was viewed by the hosts as a cause for celebration by the other hosts,who wanted to be seen as models of tolerance. The network can’t tolerate Christianity. There is big money in the mornings; boycott the GMA and the rest of Disney-ABC.

  • Ken Connolly

    I sincerely hope the show goes forward WITH Phil. It’s funny, lighthearted, family oriented, good TV, something America has been missing for a long while. However, I hope that Phil sticks to his guns which I’m sure he will. Daily, the public get a dose of “in-your-face” LGBT, maybe they will learn from this “what is good for the goose, is good for the duck” Stay the course Duck Dynasty!

  • An American

    Remember to buy Duck Commander – not DuckDynasty…AE benefits from Dynasty…Phil benefits from Commander

    “WE DON”T GIVE A DUCK ABOUT A&E!”

  • BearerOfThePainfulTruth

    Did A&E really believe they could break up a family for money and fame? How shallow do liberals, gays, sinners, A&E and GLAAD think this family is? Sorry, but the family that grows together stays together. This family is much stronger than A&E and GLADD. The Robertson family fan base out numbers A&E and GLAAD put together. These guys are not a Jerry Springer special they are the real Mccoy. Looks like A&E will have to tell GLAAD to get over bing butthurt over a real mans opinion.

      we been duckduckgo.com and http://www.ask.com far to long to think about the g-govt site search…we caught on to the surveillance by them in the 90s.

  • LaNita Wynn Young

    A & E has no right to do this! Phil did not do anything but state his beliefs and he has no hate in his heart for anyone or anything on God’s earth. They are just playing a card trying to catch them in something to get them off the air because of their God fearing lives and because they carry guns. This world has become so evil that they would not know right if it hits them in the face which it does many times. But the public has spoken and they want Duck Dynasty on the air!!!!!

  • DV8R488 .
  • Nancy Franzese

    just sent A&E a letter saying I will now boycott their channel. They knew who the Robertsons were when they first created the show. Way to backpedal to look politically correct.

  • Jon- Karen Arthur

    Get in discussion with the Blaze . Call it “Duck Commander” series or somethin . Keep remembering we are Christians, First.

  • ProudInTheUSA

    I hope they tell A&E to go pound sand!

  • GaryUSMCvet.

    So, now you geniuses @ A&E are really on the spot and faced with a chance to clean up your train wreck–it’s one of two doors. Do you top floor, corner office Einsteins open door #1–labeled ADAM (Another Dumb Azz Move) and continue this or do you bring this to an end by opening door #2– labeled WANASAWA (We Are Not As Stupid As We Appear) by reinstating Mr. Phil Robertson?

  • Kevin Eltringham

    This is a carefully thought out way to increase publicity and that means its
    all about money. I watched a few episodes and enjoyed the humor of the show but I
    was really turned off when I saw the Halloween episode. I watched out of
    curiosity I am not gonna preach to anyone but If a man says he is NOT
    going to participate in something because of its Pagan Origins then he
    folds because everyone else does it now all of a sudden its OK. Well
    that just proves he is a Hypocrite. A Godly man stands behind his word and sets an example.This family follows the money. They got everybody watching to see what happens next as the count their money.

  • Sandy

    When it comes to money A&E could care less what he says, it’s all a ploy to save face that they condone what he said, there is no way they are going to cancel this show. NO WAY! Money rules…

  • Shirl Reid

    I know God will bless your family and Phil for standing firm in him and the word. Which is a rare duck these days

    screw A&E take the show to the Sarah Palin channel

    All
    the companies that advertise on A&E listed below have something
    like this on their website: “If you need to report an adverse event or
    side effect with one of our products, please call our Customer Service
    number to report a problem, so we can give you more personalized
    attention.”

    If
    you REALLY think A&E muzzling Phil Robertson from Duck Dynasty is a
    problem, call one or two of their sponsors today and let them know
    about this ADVERSE EVENT.

    (While
    I appreciate the sentiment of FB likes, they don’t carry the same
    weight as a personal phone call to the companies to give them a piece of
    your mind. Feel free to share.)

    No Duck Dynasty no A&E, bye, bye A&E.

  • ErikandKathy Muller

    A&E had a DD marathon..expecting 8-9m viewers….got 2m….way to go with the boycott…keep it up!

  • GeorgeinParadise

    I wrote a letter to the A&E execs basically saying that they need to s*** or get off the pot. If they truly think Phil’s comments were not in keeping with their station’s image, they should tear up the Robertson’s contract and allow them to go where they’re wanted. A&E will dry up and fly away without Duck Dynasty. It all comes down to principle. Pick a side A&E. The Robertsons have more class than you all do in your pinky. By the way, I’ve already received 3 responses back stating that such and such exec. is enjoying the holidays and would respond when they return. If they are enjoying the Holidays, wouldn’t that mean they are enjoying CHRISTmas? Hypocrites!

  • Angel Ann Igoe Dozier

    I have been saved since I was nine and I have a Masters in Theology. I will never know all nor do not claim to. At 53 I still have a lot to learn. I am of mixed races, and I have been married to black men. I have also been bi sexual since birth but have never acted on it. I am also gifted by God. I am still learning how all this fits together in my life as a christian but I can not discrimagate against anyone. I do not think Phil intended to harm anyone by his words. I regularly watch the show and will continue to do so as long as it airs. It is better than a lot of the show on air these days so please try to keep it on with Phil on the show. I am praying for the family.

  • Raymond Johnson

    The Robertson’s support for their own is fundamental to the core values that this family puts fourth in Their Show. I will be saddened to see them leave A&E but I support their convictions. The best of luck to each and every one of you and God bless.

  • Col Bat Guano

    “… that means for the future of Duck Dynasty.” Hopefully moving to a new network without jellyfish management.

    I will never watch A&E Again. Their channel is off my list of channels. GOODBYE A&E.

    I love this show! I have Duck Dynasty EVERYTHING! I dont only love it because its super funny, but because it teaches value. The value of family, of hard work. Im only 19, and I when ever I decide to have children, I want my family to be just like this one! They never take anything for granted, and family is the utmost importance, as is god. I hope Duck Dynasty continues…. :( Thanks.
