Obama: A&E Should Reinstate ‘Duck Dynasty’ Patriarch
Scrappleface ^ | December 19, 2013 | Scott Ott

Posted on 12/19/2013 9:47:45 AM PST by Lucky9teen

Calling A&E’s suspension of ‘Duck Dynasty’ patriarch Phil Robertson “a chilling crackdown on free speech in an artistic community that should value individual expression,” President Barack Obama today urged the Arts & Entertainment network to reinstate Robertson immediately, and to apologize for its “hypocrisy.”

“There are no bigger fans of Duck Dynasty than Michele and me,” Obama said. “And while I have my disagreements with Mr. Robertson’s views on homosexuality, as expressed in GQ magazine, I’ll defend with my last breath Robertson’s right to express those views.”

The White House acknowledged that the private company has the right to fire Robertson for expressing his opinion, based on the Bible, that homosexuality is one kind of sin among many.

“But the president felt compelled to speak out,” said press secretary Jay Carney, “because his silence might be perceived as assent among his many entertainment industry supporters who hold freedom of expression in the highest esteem.”

Indeed, the Screen Actors Guild, Writers Guild of America and dozens of A-list movie and TV stars issued news releases or held press conferences echoing the president’s call to let Robertson return to the highest-rated show in the history of cable television.

“A chill wind is blowing in this nation,” said actor-director Tim Robbins. “It’s great to see President Obama speaking out against ideological intimidation that masquerades as tolerance and diversity.”

Pretty funny coming from people who have been working over time to chill many winds.

Is this from The Onion?

That’s rich. Do we categorize this as satirical fantasy or just straight comedic cynicism?

Gays (and the Obamadork) have Duck-O-Phobia.

And this time, “phobia” is used correctly.

When “they” use the term against us, they think that revulsion is fear.

When I used the term against them, face it...the term is used correctly.

They are afraid of Phil.

He - quite simply - is better than they are.

And much, much better than the Obamadork.

Period.

And yes, I know the article was satire...but face it, satire on liberals is asymptotically close to the truth.

LOL, I pegged this as satire halfway through the first sentence, but I did get a laugh out of it.

Aside to the author: There is supposed to be a grain of truth in satire.

It’s time for decent, traditional values Americans to stand up to the PC/diversity (so long as you AGREE WITH US)/tolerance (IF YOU DON’T TOLERATE OUR WARPED VALUES AND OUR EFFORTS TO TURN THE WORLD UPSIDE DOWN WE WILL DESTROY YOU) HYPOCRITES and tell them that the resistance has finally begun!

Don’t buy merchandise that is labeled “Duck Dynasty”, that is A&E’s goods. Buy only stuff labeled “Duck Commander”, that is owned by the Roberson’s. All that stuff in Wal-Mart should be off your Christmas list. Pass this on to everyone you know. Buying Duck Dynasty merchandise supports only A&E.
