As Twitchy reported this evening, A&E has suspended “Duck Dynasty” star Phil Robertson for comments he made to GQ Magazine in regards to homosexuality.

The suspension isn’t sitting well with Sarah Palin, who also shared a photo taken with members of the “Duck Dynasty” cast:

    Totally untrue! Just say the right things and speech is very free.

    • Kathy

      So who determines what the right things are? When someone is in that position then Freedom of Speech is compromised! It’s like my neighbor who stands at the end of her driveway and shouts, ‘This would be a great neighborhood if it wasn’t for the rednecks who live here.” [Mind you I have been here for 30 years she for 2 years} Yet, if I were to shout the opposite, she could get the NAACP and sue me. Where I would have to have the local police to hear her for them to charge her with disorderly conduct. So who again determines what is the right thing to say???.

        I’m pretty sure Chico was engaging in sarcasm there.

      You totally miss the point of Constitutionally guaranteed free speech. What you say is free speech, “the right things”, is the way that Totalitarian Governments operate. Please wake up.

      • Chico Escobar

        I was making funnies… =]

  • Republicanvet

    So Phil makes a comment in an interview with GQ, and militant gays go rabid in demanding A&E take action. A&E cowers and immediately does whatever the militant gay community wants.

    Although I would disagree with it, I could see A&E taking action if Phil said it on the show aired by A&E, but since he said it to GQ, it’s obvious A&E is more concerned with militant gays than freedom of speech or freedom of religion.

    • OingoBoingo

      Makes you wonder – Why IS A&E homophobic?

      Comment was censored: Here is the full comment I made:

      Makes you wonder – Why IS A&E homophobic? Why does A&E fear gays? Why does A&E give into demands by a gay group who is being both bigoted and intolerant by falsely accusing Phil Robertson of being bigoted and intolerant? I think A&E is confused.

      • Jack Deth

      When will we Americans ever stop letting the 2% rule the 98% in this country. The gays, atheists and liberals have ruined most of the traditions this country has enjoyed since 1776. we have to put a stop to them.

      • Mick_Pearson

        What traditions have been ruined?

        • Jeff

          You are just goading now.
          Three possibilities:
          1) you are goading
          2) you don’t know, and are ignorant of obvious history
          3) you do know, and are willfully being argumentative
          In all three cases, Lericha should ignore you.

          • Mick_Pearson

            Lericha has ignored me because no traditions have been ruined.

    Sarah is a perfect example of free speech. She can voice her (usually) insane opinions and she doesn’t get thrown into a prison for voicing them.

    Speech has consequences.

    • $84598387

      Can you give examples of any of her “insane” comments? Be specific.

      • lonestar

        John McCain is a good man? Not really, John is the insane one.

          That is far from insane. It is an opinion based on many things. First fail, try again.

        Maybe WhoDat meant “inane”? I have no interest in the prison part since incoherent babbling is not a crime.

          “incoherent babbling”?? My god, listen to Pelosi or Debbie whatsername Schultz if you want REAL incoherent babbling. Those two are so mind numbingly STUPID, and yet people are hung up on Sarah for things that Tina Fey said!

      Do you believe saying 32 times “If you like your plan and your doctor you can keep them, period.” has any consequences?

        What does that have to do with this?

        • Republicanvet

          Re-read your comment. You were the one who brought up speech having consequences.

        • $84598387

          You STATED “Speech has consequences” didn’t you?
          I asked you if that speech repeated over and over had any consequences. Do I need to explain it further? It is a very simple question that should not take too much thought.

    • journogal

      Could you provide examples of her (usually) insane opinions, and then explain why you think she should be thrown into a prison for voicing them. Are they insane because you don’t agree with them? Why can’t people have different opinions from yours? Talk about showing your intolerance…hateful, bitter little person you are if you don’t agree with someone. No, they aren’t insane, they just think differently than you, and it’s okay. We aren’t some big collective, chanting the same thing. We all have different backgrounds and lifestyles, and I know that isn’t acceptable in liberal-land.

      • WhoDat

        Never said she should be thrown into a prison, I’m saying she has the right to voice those opinions without fear of inprisonment.

        People can have different opinions, but saying your free speech is harmed when you get pushback is crazy.

          The Left had a grand old time with President George W. and let Sarah Palin make a slip of the tongue and the mainstream media will turn it into a major news story. Not so with President Obama’s verbal missteps.

          ——
          By the way many so -called Palin gaffes are not real gaffes but “media made” gaffes in order to vilify her.

          For instance: Sarah Palin was right in her opposition to rationing, a.k.a. “death panels”. She called them “death panels” and was mocked for suggesting that when the federal government ran out of money, health care would be rationed, and the elderly, the infirm, and the chronically ill would be the first to be denied.

          She was right about Revere.
          The media were wrong about Revere; distinguished historical scholars have come out endorsing Palin’s statement regarding Paul Revere.

          Experts back Sarah Palin’s historical account

          “Sarah Palin yesterday insisted her claim at the Old North Church last week that Paul Revere “warned the British” during his famed 1775 ride — remarks that Democrats and the media roundly ridiculed — is actually
          historically accurate. And local historians are backing her up”

          http://bostonherald.com/news_opinion/us_politics/2011/06/experts_back_sarah_palin%E2%80%99s_historical_account
          ———————————————————
          Even NPR confirms that Sarah Palin was right about Revere (interview of professor Robert Allison Chairman of history dept Suffolk university Boston)

          “BLOCK: So you think basically, on the whole, Sarah Palin got her history right.

          Prof. ALLISON: Well, yeah, she did.”

        • Katie Carroll

          Please give examples of her “insane” opionons. I’m not a big Sarah supporter but I usually agree with her on the issues. She may not have an Ivy league degree and she is plain-spoken but the left has vilified her to the point that people actually think she said that she could see Russia from her house. I think that’s why lefties like you think she’s “insane” – not because you are familiar with her positions

        • John Michael Branson Sr.

          they and you are totally afraid of Sarah, so you make fun of her hoping others will think she is crazy or as you say insane,but you are wrong. I live in Alaska and have seen firsthand what she can really do. i am in support of her policies and would vote for her again for whatever she chooses to run for. Why are you people afraid of??

    • You little wimp … Sarah scares the shiit out of you

    • Michael Rice

      THe issue here is the hypocrisy of the left. My guess, if the left wing nut jobs had simply said, we do not agree with him, but he has a right to say it, it would have been done and over. Instead they flip out and demand he be punished and spew more vile filth than anything Phil has said. The network, of course, instead of saying the same thing, caves and suspends him.

      It seems that you are are poorly informed about Sarah Palin. Don’t believe everything the media and Hollywood is telling you about Sarah Palin.

      Sarah Palin is a self-made women with an impressive career who broke into politics without the head start of a powerful husband or father.

      City council, mayor, Governor, oil and gas commission, VP candidate, already vetted, been scrutinized every way possible and still standing strong. Long list of accomplishments and over 20 years of experience.

      Sarah Palin has offered many statements on issues such as health care, the Federal Reserve’s money printing in funding our federal deficit, Crony Capitalism, energy independence, foreign policy, etc)

      She was the first Republican to make a high-profile critique of the Federal Reserve’s quantitative easing, though even earlier she had marked the collapsing value of the dollar as one of her issues and has repeatedly been a leading voice—via television appearances and speaking engagements—against the dangers of ObamaCare and the risks of President Obama’s approach to energy.

      She went to India , Hong Kong, World Knowledge Forum in South Korea ,etc where she talked about the economy, the deficit, government spending, gun control,the environment, the rising cost of food, energy, Egypt and other foreign policy related issues. She did unscripted Q&A’s

      She was the catalyst for the takeover of the House , twice as many Governships and lopsided Gop Statehouses with her endorsements and rallies all over the country during the 2010 election.

      Sarah Palin also had a very strong hand in the party’s few successes during the 2012 election.

If it wasn’t for journalists like Todd Starnes to pass on to the unsuspecting public what he received from what were probably evangelical Christian soldiers what was going on behind the fence on said Army installations, we would still be in the dark about it.

    Mama Grizzly’s right in spirit, of course– Phil ought to be able to say whatever he likes, whenever he likes, however he likes– but it’s not the Government who’s stopping him here, and that’s what the 1st Amendment is about. If she means to imply that, given their druthers, the Left would criminalize what Phil said, she should say that straight out. But let’s not confuse the issue by saying that what A&E is doing here is a violation of his Constitutional rights, because it isn’t– only the Government can violate that right. He may have other legal recourse, and if he does, all the more power to him– and a bit of speech, on OUR side in telling A&E to restore him to the show, is definitely called for.

    I love ya, Mama Grizzly, but you don’t make it easy.

    • GoldsteinsBook

      Who on ‘the Left’ would like to criminalize Phil’s speech?

      • Michael Rice

        I guess you missed all the efforts to criminalize “hate speech”.

    • Maxx

      Agree that this isn’t a government-sponsored example but clearly it must be troubling to note the increase of penalties following opinion in which said opinion has absolutely zero to do with one’s job. In other words, a white judge saying he despised Hispanics or a Black judge saying she despised whites would lead one to believe such opinions might affect their judicial decisions and that kind of cause and affect warrants a closer look.

      However, in this particular case, a citizen has a camera following him for entertainment and for a magazine, voices a Christian-opinion about homosexuality…how does that directly affect those around him?

      Message to A&E. Unless all the ducks Phil is shooting are gay, his opinion is DIRECTLY affecting no one. Let the guy pontificate his opinions and the viewers will decide.

      Frankly, I’m getting sick and tired of liberal thought police turning on their sirens each time an opinion doesn’t match their own. Do we really want a country where each time an opinion doesn’t jive with the liberal collective, someone gets fired?

      • therealguyfaux ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

        Here’s the deal: the Robertson family, who are far from being rustic morons, made a business decision to allow filming of their lives for a TV series, in much the same way other families have done– Buddy the Cake Boss’s family, Dog the Bounty Hunter’s family, the Harrisons on Pawn Stars etc etc. Obviously their businesses are being promoted by appearing on a “cinema verite” show. Obviously it creates business for the particular network which carries these shows. The network, unless it wants to have a controversy created for the sake of boosting ratings, may wish to shy away from anything they think might damage the “brand” of the show, and that’s their right. It’s like you’re the owner of a flea market, and one of your sellers is a controversial person in town, and you’re threatened with loss of customers through boycott and by picketing on site. You may even agree with that seller– but you’ll figure a way to chuck him out on his ass if you’re going to lose money, and you owe that to the other innocent sellers, who really shouldn’t have to be affected. Capisce?

        • Maxx

          I’m quite sure the “brand” of the show isn’t Phil and his progressive liberalism so that’s not in jeopardy and your flea market analogy is flawed. If anything, this decision is going to financially penalize A&E. This isn’t a flea market owner removing a vendor that might cost them profits. This is a flea market removing their most successful vendor at a huge financial loss. If Phil is indeed, fired, the show won’t be far behind…either involuntarily or otherwise. It might last through the end of the contract or it might not. Viewers are outraged at the network, that much is certain. They might very well boycott the show and the carnage begins. (edit: looks like the Twitter hashtag has already been created).

          Nonetheless, the reality on display here is that A&E (note what the “a” and “e” stands for) bowed to their masters…liberal Hollywood.

          • therealguyfaux ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

            Hey, I just gave you THEIR side of it, all’s I was meaning to do. That’s how THEY would tend to view it, going in. Factually you are probably right, but what A&E think they’re doing, and what the fallout will be long-run, are likely way different.

          • Maxx

            Gotcha. You do bring up an astute point. Conservatives will lose the high ground on this issue if we claim government is “at it again.” I believe Sarah’s Tweet was properly articulated in that she defined those barking at Phil as “intolerants,” which from its plural usage, indicates individuals, not government. Sarah is well aware of liberal selective outrage. After all, we heard nothing but crickets from GLAAD after Alec Baldwin was hired by MSNBC and we all know he spewed anti-gay comments long BEFORE the hiring.

          • therealguyfaux ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

            You would be “pardoned,” though (so to speak), if you were to think that the Government under an Eric Holder, who is not prosecuting the IRS for civil-rights violations that arguably DO exist where the granting of 501(c)(4) status to Tea Party groups is concerned, is also in the business of trampling the First Amendment, through pretext. But a clear distinction must be made as to what is a Government violation of free speech and what is a business decision in which a phrase involving “spite,” “nose” and “face” comes to mind. In our efforts, we can’t afford to have our side be Low-Info-Joe’s who can’t clearly tell you when free speech is violated. Our attitude has to be “A&E is stupid. Stupid ain’t illegal, else the Left would have all gone to prison years ago.”

            Don’t use a term that invites others to say you’re playing to a yokel audience, what I’m tryin’ to say here. Palin, unless she IS that crass that she WILL exploit Low Info Joe, should be a bit more felicitous in her use of the lingo.

    • RefudiateGOPe

      Palin didn’t accuse A&E of violating his 1st Amendment rights. Her point is really simple for anyone who has the reading comprehension of an eighth grader: Free speech is being trumped by political correctness. That’s her message. If you speak out against Obama, you’re labeled as a racist by the left. If you believe that marriage should be between a man and a woman, you’re labeled as a homophobe. And apparently, if you voice an opinion based on the scriptures, you’re a bigot.

      If you don’t like Phil’s opinion, don’t watch. Unfortunately, the ball-less execs at networks and major stores fear boycotts fueled by fringe groups. I’m waiting for Walmart and Bass Pro Shops to wade into this. Walmart and other retailers dropped the Paula Deen lines for something she said over 20 years ago.

      • therealguyfaux ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

        Free speech includes people deciding to condemn Phil as well. They have as much right to spout their ignorant hateful opinion as we have to propound our own hopefully-more-informed one. What Palin is opposing, one would hope at any rate, is the Leftie “speech-is-free-for- me-not-thee” idiocy. Fight the Government limitations on free speech. To do anything more than that makes you as bad as the ones you’re condemning. Call the Politically-Correct Language Police what they are– incipient totalitarians, presently acting like the deep-down-cowardly bullies they really are. But do like Kanye West, if you will– “I’m-a let you finish, but first I wanna say, y’all are phukwits of the highest order if you think you’re foolin’ anybody…”

    • Jake Bradford

      Right. But this isn’t a court case against A&E. Just ppl expressing their displeasure at the network’s decision.

  • AmericanMom

    It’s an out and out attack on Christianity and conservatives along with Phil Robertson. Activist gays and liberals have inserted this agenda into every segment of our society (education and entertainment most notably) and will take no argument against it. I hope they fail and I, for one, delete every show that contains it.

    • nickdqwk

      Phil was asked a question and he answered, did not insert himself.

      • AmericanMom

        I am on Phil’s side and support him 100%. I would have answered the question just as he did.

    • scootr1295

      Could it be that brother Phil has opened the door and the Lord has used him to arouse the sleeping giant called the Church to finally stand up and engage in the culture war? Church! Let’s no longer be afraid to express our conviction. God calls ALL sexual activity outside of a male husband / female wife marriage relationship sin–to include adultery and fornication and all homosexual activity. There’s no getting around it. Church! Let’s begin to not merely CALL it a sin, but let’s actually live out fidelity to our opposite sex spouses if we are married and to save yourself sexually if you are single.

      Church! Let’s stop with the being afraid to take a stand and boldly proclaim that the ONLY way to get right with God is to repent of sin and fully embrace Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord–which is no more or no less than what He Himself said. “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No man (person) comes unto the Father (the true and living God) except by Me” (John 14:6). Islam and Muhammad is NOT the way. Buddha is NOT the way. The 33 million gods of the Hindus are NOT the way. It’s high time Jesus Christ was lifted up and exalted. Church! Let’s not merely proclaim it. Let’s LIVE it. Jesus is the Lord of the Church. He lived a perfect life, and died on the cross in our place. His death was payment for, and made forgiveness of all our sins possible. He rose again three days later and ascended into heaven (1 Corinthians 15:3-4). And when He comes back, He will be Lord of the world–King of kings and Lord of lords (Revelation 19:16). One day, every knee will bow and every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord to the glory of God the Father (Philippians 2:8). Church! There is no time to waste! I’m grateful that brother Phil Robertson had the courage to speak the message that for far too long, except for a few exceptions, the church has been mute. Let’s LIVE the gospel, and GIVE the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ.

    Phil talked about leaving the show in his book. Might have decided to go out with a BANG!

    Still ridiculous A&E would suspend him for answering a question GQ asked. It’s not like he was the one who brought the subject up. He was honest in his response and explained his beliefs. What is wrong with that?

    • Casca

  • Michael Rice

    I believe they should be able to suspend him. However, this is the issue….
    Imagine if someone was hired by Phil’s company and then made remarks ridiculing Christianity.
    If he was fired or suspended, do you think it would be okay?
    If you think it is okay for A&E to do this, but that the scenario I described is wrong, you’re a hypocrite.

          Phil is not advocating that others’ rights be trampled upon; Bashir’s words are just such an incitement.

          Martin Bashir may have had the right to say what he said, but whether it was RIGHT to advocate such a course of action is another thing entirely; however, both are out of the reach of the government.

Am I supposed to pretend I have suddenly changed my mind so as not to make offense? Should I have to walk on egg shells around them? It was their choice . If they asked, all these years later I would have to say yes, I still believe it is wrong. No hate ..no bashing , just the simple truth.. If they get offended and turn against me I can’t do anything about that. Phil Robertson may get a lot of flack and hate mail but he was true to his own self. That is all I would ask of him.

    Iran’s building nukes, China’s warships are battling ours in the South China Sea, and this is the topic our society is spending its time on?

    • scootr1295

      And what a timely thing this topic is. God is the One who protects us–or can–as we as a nation turn back to Him in repentance. God allowed His chosen people, the Jews, to be overrun by the Assyrians and the Babylonians, and then the Greeks and Romans in their history precisely because they quit following Him and stopped living out His ways in their nation.

      And please, don’t object to this post by saying that we were never a Christian nation. Nothing could be further from the truth. Three times in our nation’s history the Supreme Court (which are, as we know the final interpreters of the Constitution) declared us to be a Christian nation–the most recent pronouncement happened in 1950. Our two founding documents (the Declaration and Constitution) both declare and allude to the fact that our nation is founded on the ways of the True and Living God. One case in point to further my point: according to the first and second charters of the state of Virginia, the purpose of its existence is to propagate the gospel of Christ.

      God plainly tells any people who claim Him as their God: “If My people, who are called by My name, shall humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land.” (2 Chronicles 7:14).

They have beliefs and express them. 4. If A&E had a popular show about gay people (like, Glee, for example) and they expressed hatred towards “breeders”, there would be no backlash. Double standard. The left is seen as the “tolerant” unless you don’t agree with them. Then you are the “hater” , racist, whatever. Phil Robertson is a millionaire many times over.

      Free speech seems to be accepted ONLY when it follows the ‘politically correct’ guidelines.

    LOL!

    • Exodus2011

      it’s hard to kick against the goads, ain’t it Joe?

      btw

      America needs this Corruptocrat FIGHTER, Gov Sarah Palin, in the Oval Office – look at her record in AK ! She dismantled the *Corrupt B*stards Club* up there ….

      now, does America have a Corrupt B*stards’ Club in DC, operating on STEROIDS???

      Send her to DC and watch the RATS squeal as they try to RUN and HIDE!

      Also, I think it would be best if this NOT4SALE Proven Reformer is directing things from the WH as the IMPLOSION hits America in the future (we are ticking over toward 120% of GDP in debt = Greece territory)

      she is a born Exec Officer/Manager with > 20 years of experience, her most VITAL trait being, she is NOT4SALE

      that quality ALONE is the single most important one if the US Govt is to be successfully reformed and Constitutional America rescued

      imagine what a POTUS could do, if they were beholden to NOBODY, no Lobbyists, no special interest groups, no big donors … a POTUS with a SINGLE ENTRY on her IOU list = “The American People”!

      at the same time she is the most experienced Leader wrt Energy Issues and will also manage the EXPLOSION of American energy development

      both the IMPLOSION/Reform of Govt and the EXPLOSION of American energy development must kick in at exactly the same time, if Constitutional America is
      to survive and thrive again

      GET HER INTO THE OVAL OFFICE, AMERICA

      Robertson does not single out any individual, he talks about his faith priavtely and what it tells him. Bashir on national television singled out Palin and encouraged the use of violence against her.

    • https://www.facebook.com/ritchietheriveter Ritchie The Riveter

      Comparing the vulgar, personal statements of Bashir to what Phil said is like comparing cowpies to cookies.

    • mainelysteve

      Sarah Palin accepted Bashirs apology. bet you wouldn’t have done that!

  • Exodus2011

    the anti-free speech or RINO or GOPe or Lefty Tools are starting to run in here, outta breath, tripping over their shoelaces and still pulling up their panties .. … **__**

    the FEARED name P A L I N appears in a headline and … “quick .. run … run … we mustn’t let anything positive about ‘that woman’ go unchallenged … help … help!…where is everyone? …”

    she cannot be President .. EVER!!!” (stamps foot! … gets red in face … sweat beginning to bead on angrily furrowed brow …)

    here she is …stunning….. captivating …. fearless and FEARSOME (if you are a commie, lefty or RINO TOOL **__**)

      Oh Ex, still cuckoo for cocoa puffs, please don’t ever stop.

      • Exodus2011

        Hey Mickey! (are you the ‘Big boy’? .. I forget **__**)

        btw

        (Watch the DVD Documentary “The Undefeated” to get the full story concerning Gov Sarah Palin’s amazing tenure as AK Governor, from those who served with her … because her detractors in the Permanent Political Class, from both private political parties, will try and distort her record …. she can’t be bought off y’see, and is such a CORRUPTOCRAT Buttkicker! …. **__**)

        Why do thinking Conservatives and Independents LISTEN to Madame Steel Spine,?

        because

        *she loves America
        *has a stellar, consistently conservative, FULLY TRANSPARENT (!!!) governing record… which MATCHES her Rhetoric
        *she is an AWESOME Corruptocrat BUTTKICKER (YEAH)

        and, like LTC Allen West, she has put the interests and welfare of her fellow Americans AHEAD of her own career

        and that’s just off the top of my head … there is PLENTY more

        (where have you been ? … listening to the lefties and GOPe Tools, who are in PERIL because of the building Palin/Cruz JUGGERNAUT? … wake up ole buddy ole pal **__**)

    (btw, for those interested I uncovered some remarkable information wrt Gov Palin’s direct impact on the abortion issue …)

    I am waiting for Al Sharpie to get taken to task.

    Unlikely, huh?

  • HappyTexan

    A&E done goofed. They should be worried right now. If I was them, I would be worried.

  • KatTrak

    The thing people are ignoring is that his job is protected by the same
    Civil Rights laws that protect gays, people of color, people with
    disabilities etc. Tucked in between those classes is the word
    RELIGION. You cannot discriminate against someone in the workplace
    because of their religion. He was asked a question. According to his
    religious beliefs, he had to give a Biblical answer. So he was fired
    for following his religious beliefs. I don’t think the Robertsons
    should stay with A&E, I think they should sue A&E.
