Glenn Beck Makes a Very Exciting Offer to the Cast of ‘Duck Dynasty’
The Blaze ^ | 12/19/2013 | Erica Ritz

Posted on 12/19/2013 2:15:13 PM PST by sheikdetailfeather

“Duck Dynasty on TheBlaze” has a nice ring to it, according to Glenn Beck.

One day after Phil Robertson’s comments about homosexuality earned him an indefinite suspension from the hit series “Duck Dynasty” on A&E, Beck offered the entire Robertson family a place on his own network.

“[All the other networks] will fold to pressure,” he said. “They will all fold to sponsors. They will all fold to money because they are all in over their eyeballs are debt … the only reason why Phil was put on hiatus and not the rest is because it is a money-printing machine.”

Beck said as he sees it, the Robertson family has a choice to make.

“If I am in the Robertson family, I sit down with my family and say, ‘Is this the way we’re going to [let] him be treated? Is this who we are? Are we going to [be] quiet because he has an opinion about the scriptures?’”

Beck knows an opportunity when he sees one.

Phil would give Beck his views on mormonism, I’m guessing they aren’t positive.

Maybe Phil will just JUMP at the chance to go hunting with Beck, Romney, and the 12 Apostles of the Mormon church.

Or maybe he won’t.

More like a self-serving offer from a “network” with few viewers.

Slick, how many more $10 per month subscribers will be pulled in for a Duck Dynasty on his Network? I don't see it being successful unless he streams the show for free.

Finally, somebody on our side has a chance to hit the liberal media where it hurts—in the wallet.

Will A&E become another loser network like MSNBC, when straight people don’t watch it anymore?

move to a outdoor channel, religious channel. I’ll watch it wherever it moves to.

But yeah, if your contract is up at the end of season 4, tell them to kiss your duck commander.

About six months or so, ago, Beck said that he would have a stunning, major announcement that would shock everyone. What, pray tell, was the announcement?

How about the Hallmark Channel. Seems that would be a better fit for all involved. Hallmark would let the Robertsons pray all they want and say nothing about it.

This is the great thing about the internet.

The day of Commie monopoly of the airwaves is over.

There are an infinite number of channels now.

So you won’t have to live with just one perspective.

We saw this with the rise of Fox on cable.

But even that is the past. Now...thousands and thousands.

Good Luck, See-BS. Your days are numbered.

Hallmark Channel would be a better fit. They have an HD feed on many providers and they wouldn't have to put up with Beck's constant crying.

And Beck is un-PC enough to let him exercise his 1st Amendment right and not try to punish him for his opinions.

Beck should offer the whole Duck Family a chance to write “Guest” columns on various subjects for the Blaze and put them on his website as a “freebie”.

I think a “Duck Syndicate” would be nice. It is a lot easier to explain one’s views when they can see them in print before publication than to say something extemporaneously and regret it later (or at least be attacked for telling the truth).

At least Beck is offering the Duckies a home. Who else in the conservative constellation is doing anything to support them?

If DD goes to Beck it will be preaching to the choir. They need to show and defend tradtional American Christian family values to the other side.

They're owned by Crown Media Holdings of Studio City, CA. I haven't fully completed my independent background check on that conglomerate but one of my acquaintances told me that George Soros was a major investor.

When he first came on air, on 1210AM, in Philadelphia, I was banned from the forum. I told everyone, way back then, that he was a fake and fraud.

‘We never, ever judge someone on who’s going to heaven, hell. That’s the Almighty’s job,’ Robertson told GQ. ‘We just love ’em, give ’em the good news about Jesus — whether they’re homosexuals, drunks, terrorists. We let God sort ’em out later, you see what I’m saying?’

This guy (Glenn Beck) needs to be slapped into next week/reality/manhood ala the George Patton style of getting one’s attention. The gif is sad and funny, all at the same time. Freepers are truly some of the most awesome observers and educators on the www. Give it up ladies and gentlemen- for Snickering Hound! Don’t get the big head though... some other freeper will come along in due time and top your witty humor, but what the heck- that’s what makes FR so much fun.

The Robertsons are... as they say, the teachers, appearing as the students/society seemingly are/is ready to learn. KAPOW!!!

Yup. It carries the added bonus of dragging the hypocrites out in the open when they attack the Robertsons for standing by their principles and going with a network that respects their freedom.

“If I am in the Robertson family, I sit down with my family and say, ‘Is this the way we’re going to [let] him be treated? Is this who we are? Are we going to [be] quiet because he has an opinion about the scriptures?’”

What exactly have the other family members said regarding this? If it were my family we'd all be demanding to be suspended as well.

Interesting only if DD could give Beck’s fledgling network some path to viewership.
I’ve been annoyed with theBlaze since the website started arbitrarily running audio that could not be easily quieted via my browser. Finally just stopped hitting the site at all.

The only reason its got so few viewers is the cable networks monopolistic black listing of his stuff. If he was able to compete on cable with Jizzra, it might be a different tale.

Aljizzra is just fine and danndeee, Beck is a leper.

Not a big fan of Beck, but he did strike off on his own, with his own cash, just because the networks, including the vaunted “Fair and Balanced” Fox, weren’t so fair and balanced.

We need more goobers in the tv world, not fewer. Beck is a goober for sure, but he does have a penchant for sending lightning boltz up the buttz of the commie pigs.

And THAT has to count for something.

And yea, if YOU saw an opportunity, you saying you wouldn’t chase it? Money talks, BS walks.

It does seem a little tacky though. OTH, Beck is getting hurt, and him going under won’t be a positive.

Hope they put it together.

I’m sure they have lawyers going over their contract as we speak. They will make a statement when their options are made clear and deliberated upon. You know they will stick together... They’re family.

It's my understanding that A&E is owned by Disney and Hearst. I don't know how gay Hearst is, but Disney's positively radioactive. I think Hallmark Channel would be a good alternate to A&E. About the only thing I watch on A&e is NCIS reruns to get my Ziva David (Cote de Pablo) fix. The other programs, not so much.
