    You’re making less sense than usual, understandable given the idiocy of the premise you and others on the right seek to promote.

    Only the state can act to silence unpopular speech, not private citizens in the context of private society, as private citizens lack the authority and means to ‘silence’ someone.

    And to point out the fact that some Christians are ignorant and wrong on the issue, where they have indeed contrived a whining cult of victimhood, is not ‘bigotry,’ it’s merely pointing out the fact that Christians have contrived a whining cult of victimhood.

    But the Robertson's are made up assholes who are just after money.

    "I'm not a Redneck, I just play one on TV!"

    But, no, guy, the thing was, he said something to get attention, it generated about a weeks worth of attention, but their schtick has gotten old and their ratings are flagging.

    This was Duck Dynasty's "Jump the Shark" moment.

    Never called them scum
    Just the opposite, I respect the hell out of the Robertson family. Have said that numerous times. So what if they have ZZ Top beards as they did that for the producers of the show.
    You do know they never had them before, don't you. The sons were all preppies, polo shirts and Bass Weejuns and Phil had a crew cut and was clean shaven
    The camo and all is fantasy for the show, called drama TV.
    And no problem, they earned all they have.
    But they are not victims in any way and Phil Robertson has stated many times "I will say what I want and no one will stop me".
    Why are you calling Phil Robertson a liar?

    We are all after money.
    But even if they are made up assholes, and I do not believe they are assholes, that would be better than being a REAL ASSHOLE.
    Their ratings are off the chart again and everywhere you go their marketing materials are front and center for sale from kid's lunch boxes to Christmas CDs.
    Because America loves them and that is all A OK with me.
    I disagree with what Phil says but he has a right to say it and his employer has every right to discipline him for doing so as he has NO constitutional protections on speech for employer/employee relation.

    Mr. Brown makes excellent points on many issues but if you dare disagree with him he goes into a insecure rant.

    They had their beards even before their 1st show, Duck Commander that aired on the Outdoor Channel in 2009.

    Duck Dynasty started airing in 2012.

    You also make excellent points on many issues. However, in this case you appear to be echoing libtardian lies. Why don't you provide one "shred" of evidence to back up your slanderous claims on their name.

    A tad more than "insecure"... I'd say "demented". :cuckoo:
    Never seen PWI go on a second day on the same drunk. :disbelief:
