Skip to comments.Suggestion: Campaign to A&E over "Duck Dynasty" hiatus. .
Posted on 12/19/2013 4:40:03 AM PST by Salgak
OK, gang. We're seeing the railroading of Phil Robertson for the high crime of professing his faith in response to a direct question.
1. We need to overwhelm A&E with support for Phil. Here's the email I sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. . .
To whom it may concern:
Apparently, A&E Networks find it objectionable that Phil Robertson, when asked a direct question, gave a direct answer and referenced the teachings of his faith.
For his honesty, which, frankly, is one of the charms of "Duck Dynasty", you've decided to put Phil on hiatus.
Well, I've put A&E on hiatus. AND, I've also put buying products and services advertised on A&E on hiatus, and will be informing each and every one of your advertisers of the fact. I'm sure that Wal-Mart, amongst others, will be in touch about that. . .
You might remember the Chik-fil-A brouhaha, and how that worked out. . . .
2. We need to execute the "Rakolta Technique": that is, we need a list of advertisers and products advertised on A&E, and then contact each and every sponsor promising NOT to buy their products UNTIL Phil Robertson returned to "Duck Dynasty". . .
Feedback ? Suggestions
Bring back Phil Robertson!
Well done. Time to execute.
A&E doesn’t care. The people there fear man more than they fear God.
This is part of the sinful nature.
I encourage pressure, but don’t EXPECT success. Do it for other reasons.
Either that, or else Phil Robertson needs to run for a political office.
This is a formative moment. Our side needs to get off the sidelines and take over stuff.
Stop letting the left run things.
Imagine Barney Frank strolling into your office and delivering a stern tongue lashing...the mind reels.

I did number 1. On an earlier thread Freepers watched the Duck Dynasty show and posted a list of sponsors. Also some phone numbers were posted.
Keep in mind that A&E gets paid by the cable/dish/inet provider for their feed. Each one gives a set amount of money to A&E for each home they service; not by the number of viewers. Not tuning in to A&E doesn’t hurt them one bit.
Advertisers, on the other hand, do spend their money by the number of viewers (Arbitron & Neilsen). Letting the advertisers know that you won’t be wacthing and won’t be interested in buying their products can get things “moving”.
Can anyone create a list of advertisers and their contact info?
hate to keep reposting this ....
CEO # is
I wonder if someone wearing a turban voiced his religious opinions would have been suspended. Rhetorical. We all know had that happened, there would be riots in Cairo by now.
Phil isn’t technically gone. Season 4 is in the can and he’s in all those. Unless they cancel the show you’ll be seeing Phil next season I believe.
just read this some where
those are a few
The homosexuality issue will be the one which clearly severs the masses into two camps. It will be one side standing by the Bible, and their faith, and the other side with the spirit of anti-Christ.
What next? Preachers who speak the truth being silenced? Will they be arrested for “hate” speech? Does Phil Robertson and anyone who agrees with him no longer enjoy freedom of religion? Very dangerous times we’re living in.
“2. We need to execute the “Rakolta Technique”: that is, we need a list of advertisers and products advertised on A&E, and then contact each and every sponsor promising NOT to buy their products UNTIL Phil Robertson returned to “Duck Dynasty”. . .”
The ‘Rakolta’ technique is what you are fighting. Rakolta campaigned to get Married With Children off the air by boycotting the sponsors due to her inability to JUST CHANGE THE CHANNEL. We want Duck Dynasty IN IT’S ENTIRETY on the air. Rakolta stood for CENSORSHIP . . .she didn’t like the content and therefore NO ONE SHOULD BE ABLE TO WATCH IT. That is not how a free society works.
The best way to send a message to A&E is to NOT WATCH ANYTHING except Duck Dynasty on their channel. Support their advertisers and then target your campaign on contacting those sponsors to indicate your support for their helping Phil get back on the show. Sponsors of Duck Dynasty ALREADY know how their bread is buttered and what target audience they serve.
And let the normal emotional issues play out like they always do. Remember, Phil was ALREADY talking about this season being his last anyhow because he didn’t feel like appearing in it in the future.
No this is larger than just the Bible.
The left is stepping strongly into public censorship.
We need to fight back with everything.
Take back American media. Enough standing on the side.
Enough! Reinstate Phil Robertson now!!!
Cabela’s? Bass Pro? Gander Mtn?
Just curious about the “obvious” ones.
I think they will when they see it is overwhelming and it hits them directly in the pocketbook.
Fame and fortune doesn't come without a price........
I believe that Phil Robertson, educated and smart man, knew exactly what he was doing when he said those things about queers and I agree with everything he said and love the show. He also knew the s### storm his words would bring from the queer crowd and their liberal lap dog supporters.
He is also familar with what happened to Chic Fil A, when the owner of that business expressed his views on queers. Chic Fil A’s business exploded in sales.
Robertson may have had no ulterior motive for expressing his belief or alternatively he chose his words carefully. Either way, he is a smart and moral buisnessman and I support him 100%
I also look for his loving family to support him too.
As for the suggestion that they move their highly successful program to another net work, I’m sure that A&E was smart enough to provide provisions in their contract with the Robertsons to prevent that from happening.
I will continue to support them although not a duck hunter, I have no interest in their duck calls but have noticed that they have probably hundreds of other products they sell.
God bless Phil and all the Robertson family.

Have at it!
I will bet Cabelas has already picked our side.
Cabelas is strongly on our side already.
i did see bass pro
Agreed. This isnt just about phil. This is about the majority in this country who believe in the bible getting sick and tired of homosexuals trying to normalize their sin. Its one thing not to persecute them for it, its another to make it normal. Christians need to push back once and for all!
Whether I agree with Phil Robertson or not is not the issue.
I view this as the in the end, the viewing public should decide Duck Dynasty’s fate.
I think future ratings should decide if someone stays or not. Networks always jump the gun on these things.
Sponsors have a right to decide if they want to be associated, but at the same time, in the end, it’s the ratings that drive sponsorship.
And of course, viewership drives ratings.
Of course what bothers is me more are the people who now want Phil Robertson off the air had no issues with Martin Bashir’s Palin rant.
Now getting to the topic of this thread.... Y ES! People on this forum have the right to let Duck Dynasty’s sponsors know how they feel!!!
GO FREEPERS! God Bless.
We can also buy a duck call or other items for family members this Christmas?
I finely tuned and well made call woould like absolutely great on your brother-in-law’s mantle or hung on the wall of his man-cave.
Just another outlet of support!
Thank you. As soon as I send this, I will print them out.
Whenever you need to make a point about anything, the best thing to do is hit them where it hurts, in the pocket book....I for one feel our freedoms are being damaged by the libtards of this world and of America....GO Phil . I am supporting his remarks all the way!!!
Why? A&E is going to lose millions over this....Let them go to another network.
I’m in let’s march! Shut them downnn.
Would suggest fans bring duck calls to NFL games this weekend and let loose.
Contact A&E firstname.lastname@example.org
You know, what’s funny is how Barbara Walters and Alec Baldwin also have a problem with homosexuality as well.
Why don’t the others on the joy just boycott it..refuse to film any more episodes..A&E’s action is without merit..
Isn’t employer discrimination based upon religion or creed illegal?
I understand that the entire 2014 season has already been filmed (Phil included).
Note: Phil was quoting 1 Cor 6.
Its not that Phil is opposed to homosexuality... its that he quoted the bible while being opposed. God’s word cuts the heart like a knife.
I agree. I do it to honor God.
Good point... but I don’t think Phil was an employee in the “classic sense” of the word. He was contracted for services.
Call A&E 212-210-1400
They should then tell A&E that they won’t renew...
Maybe someone already made this connection, but could Phil’s comment been made a big deal since he snubbed Barbara Walters?
If A&E were so upset then why not pull the show? As of last night their website didn’t even elude to Phil being punished. This could be a ratings stunt because by not watching DD that could be construed as support for A&E’s punishment.
Community organizers demand coordination of opinion. Get with it. Opinion only counts if you agree with the politically-correct wussies. Any opinion (or belief) contrary to theirs is heresy and needs to be silenced. Central planning at its best.
The gastopo and lavender mafia will win this unless there is massive pushback.
Commercials: are for other shows on their network.
“Isnt employer discrimination based upon religion or creed illegal?”
Phil is not an A&E employee, he is either an employee or co-owner of the production company or both that produces the show. A&E buys the show.
What about the rest of the Duck Dynastion family? They aren’t walking out?
The only thing that will work with A&E is make them pay. Take it to another network.
