19 Dec 2013 | US Navy Vet

Posted on 12/19/2013 7:37:17 AM PST by US Navy Vet

1. "Block" ALL A & E Programming(and ALL A & E Affiliates) on your cable/Satellite Box 2. Go to "http://duckcommander.com/store/" and buy something 3. Contact you cable/satellite provider and tell the WHY you are doing No 1 4. Consider DROPPING you cable/satellite service and go to internet "TV" Service 5. Send the "Robertson's" letters/cards of support 6. Contact "Bass Pro Shops" and ask them to drop support of A & E Prgramming.

But how do we hurt A&E without hurting Duck Dynasty?

What do you mean? There is no such thing as bad publicity. The Robertsons will simply move their show to another network, and A&E will simply wither and die.

Here's #7 for the list:
Return all Duck Dynasty products (owned by A&E) and only buy Duck Commander products.

Doing ANYTHING to A & E prior to them actually dropping “Duck Dynasty” is going to counter intuitive. Wouldn’t we be hurting the Robertsons as much as A & E? I can see only watching “Duck Dynasty” and nothing else, though.

I don’t know the background here, and I seldom watch TV—so why are we not liking A&E these days?

That’s the right answer. Hopefully the Duck clan has the resources to take their bat, ball, and go find another ballpark....hello, Netflix?

You can’t fight a network that buys bandwidth by the gigabyte. I’m pretty sure Mark Twain said that...

I would say a better approach is to contact A&E’s competitors and ask them to pick up the show. A&E blew it, they don’t deserve a second chance. So I would not beg them to do anything. Let ‘em rot.

A&E is horrible and has been for a long time. They used to be an actual Arts network.

A&E should realize that this show became popular BECAUSE of this family and not suspend him for being himself...

Don’t get your reaction to dfwgator. Seems like a major over reaction to a reasonable comment.

A & E owns the show and the concept. No, the viewers need to let A & E know how they feel about it all.

They have a show called “Modern Dads” about “stay at home dads”. Just the kind of thing that all Leftists and Obama want more of.

It’s only hurting A&E since DD is the most popular show they have going. DD will have more supporters now than ever.

“Clearly identify the executives who made the decision.They must be held personally accountable as a strong example to other left wing censors.”

I am in full agreement with you. However, in practice, this is not such an easy thing to do.

Whether it be a TV network or a Fortune 500 company, the names of the executives who makes these decisions are never put out for public consumption.

Instead they’ll issue a generic press release that may or may not have the name of a PR contact at that firm. That person will take the heat for the decisions of the higher ups.

You can't hurt that family. That stupid TV show is not the most important thing to them. They don't exist for fame and fortune. I'll bet they wouldn't lose much sleep at all if the show went away. A&E needs them far more than DD family needs A&E.

I wouldn't worry about the DD family. They are the real deal American Family (values, hard work, ethics and faith) and would do just fine one way or another.

Good Idea....Delete the channel on your TV (watch only when DD is on).....Someone on FR posted a list of advertisers, so write them and say politely this is about free speech and not hate. If you want us to buy your products tell A&E ‘hands off.

They can’t walk because they have to finish out their contracts. Now, if the rest of the cast called the GQ reporter back to give him a piece of their mind and said the same thing as Phil did, A & E would have to let them all go. Then A & E would lose all of their advertisers for the show for sure.

Sent by a friend:
A&E stands for Arts & Entertainment.[3] The company is a joint venture between Hearst Corporation and Disney-ABC Television Group, a subsidiary of The Walt Disney Company.

Channels from A+E Networks include:
• A&E
• Bio
• Crime & Investigation Network
• History
• H2
• History en Español
• Lifetime
• LMN
• Lifetime Real Women
• Military History[1]

Might want to look at “blocking” these “Channels” as well.

So I suggest we all go buy a duck call and going ducking hunting in a show of solidarity. This also a great tactic if Barbra Walters wants an interview. A&E has already shown were there stand why support them in the first place?

It just amazes me how much attention a reality show star gets while a tea party backed RNC committeeman is slowly squeezed over similar comments with virtually a peep coming from so called conservatives.

After all, the RNC only makes GOP policy and decides who the party backs.

They made their choice, they seem to be betting that they will win more by appeasing the homosexual lobby than they will by letting this slide. Since “Duck Dynasty” is their flagship program and the hottest thing on cable TV this is a big risk for them. I’m guessing homosexual activists are not their core audience for this show and they lose big time on that bet. They may find they are killing the duck that laid the golden egg.

Remember, Jesus said this would happen.

“Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me. Rejoice and be glad, because great is your reward in heaven, for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you.”

They treated the Prophets and they treated Jesus the same way. Paul and Peter were thrown into prison because of it. We should not only expect but embrace this when it comes out way. The world is contrary to Jesus, it rejects Jesus. We’ve been on easy street here with our lukewarm Christianity. Now when sin has reach such a high level and we “kick back” against it, the world only points to our acceptance if sin in the past. It’s time for us to wash ourselves clean, put on sackcloth and repent and mourn in the streets and cry out to God for forgiveness. The “Cry of Sodom” is about the reach the Heavens and sudden destruction will come. Will we be the ones left behind, or will we escape like Lot did? Who cares what the TV station does. Jesus cares about our hearts and our testimony. Keep Jesus in your heart, and have the testimony of Jesus on your lips. As in the book of Joshua “Be strong and do it!”
