Skip to comments.Obama: A&E Should Reinstate ‘Duck Dynasty’ Patriarch

Calling A&Es 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. Robertsons views on homosexuality, as expressed in GQ magazine, Ill defend with my last breath Robertsons 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 presidents 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. Its great to see President Obama speaking out against ideological intimidation that masquerades as tolerance and diversity.
That’s rich. Do we categorize this as satirical fantasy or just straight comedic cynicism?
Just by reading the headline, I knew it was satire. :)
Total satire. President Alinsky would never offend his friend, Reggie Love.....(et al)
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.
Not the Onion but it is Scrappleface. I did a double take then looked at the source!
And yes, I know the article was satire...but face it, satire on liberals is asymptotically close to the truth.
ScrappleFace hit the mark on this one.
What a liying BA$$-TURD
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!
Scrappleface. Satire. Keywords.
