    I get the feeling that the indoctrination by the public school and media tandem is running into some push-back.
    Seems folks are tired of being told what they have to think....or suffer the pillorying of political correctness.

    I opened my local newspaper this morn to find the following article. It is hard to miss the relationship between this and the Robertson situation...





    1. "I’m letting Food Network go!

    2. ...Paula Deen suffered humiliation, lost endorsements from Sears, JC Penney, KMart and Walgreens, saw her TV show on Food Network cancelled and her credibility as a good old southern lady flushed down the bowl, for a comment she made more than 20 years ago and one that she atoned for profusely,...



    3. The executives at Food Network threw her under a bus quicker than a falling souffle right out of the oven and failed to renew her contract because the network did not tolerate “Discriminatory behavior.”

    4. ... the case was thrown out of court by a federal judge on Aug. 13, 2013,...





    5. ... here is where I find out how hypocritical the Food Network and its executives really are. ...a new show on its channel, “Nigellissima.” The program features chef Nigella Lawson demonstrating her take on Italian recipes.

    6. Didn’t Nigella admit to using cocaine and smoking marijuana?...Is this what the Food Network sees as acceptable behavior? Admitted drug use. Where is the executive outrage? Where is the condemnation of the popular chef?





    7. But I’m glad to say that Paula has had the last laugh. The discrimination case against her was thrown out of court, her fans still buy her books, frequent her restaurants, I’ve seen her guest on her son’s show, and she has repaired her reputation.

    8. Not for Nuthin™ Food Network execs, but you cooked the wrong golden goose this time."
    I?m letting Food Network go ? Brooklyn Daily



    Looks to me as though there is the beginning of a pattern here....beginning of a revolt.....

    Paula Deen made a single comment, to her husband, in the privacy of their own home and that over 20 years ago. For that she was to be severely punished.

    The major difference between Paula Deen and Phil Robertson is that Paula Deen apologized and tried to make amends. She mad the rounds of all the talk shows apologizing over and over. She cried, she begged for forgiveness. It was natural for the race baiting industry to refuse to forgive her.

    Phil Robertson told Barbra Walters to take a hike. He isn't apologizing. He isn't demeaning himself by making the rounds.

    Paula Deen had stores refuse to sell her products. Do you see any stores refusing to sell Duck Commander or Buck Commander products? Paula Deen's products were bought by women, Duck Commander products are bought by hunters who don't take kindly to being told what to do by a bunch of fluffer baiters.

    I don't know Paula personally, but it seems the major difference is the beard.





    The nexus is that both are being punished because they have infracted political correctness.


    Although not a hunter, outside of shoe stores, I don't like being told what to think or say, either.
    Kind of think of myself as one of Pavlov's cats.....

    I'll tell you what. Any of these stations, sponsors that jump on the politically correct wagon, I am done with. There are plenty of competitors out there looking for business

    Both redneck wackos were punished because they violated a morals clause in their contracts with their respective networks. It's called personal responsibility.

    Good luck with that! With all of the mergers and acquisitions blindly rubber stamped during that last Bush you'll need to bring a playbook to the store.

    The President himself bragged of smoking dope and snorting coke. You think the Left gives a flying fuck?

    The attack on Paula was unreal. The mother trucking bitch from hell said she would smear Deen to hell and back to get money.

    The progressives helped her now didn't they?

    I have all their names. Payback is a bitch. Just not ready yet. :)
