In the fallout over Wednesdays suspension of Duck Dynasty star Phil Robertson by A&E for anti-gay and racist remarks, GLAAD is experiencing record levels of backlash. In the five-and-a-half years Ive worked at GLAAD, Ive never received so many violently angry phone calls and social media posts attacking GLAAD for us speaking out against these comments, the media watchdog organizations vice president of communications Rich Ferraro told TheWrap. He said those reactions range from those who simply believe as Robertson believes to those who feel that GLAAD and A&Es actions limit the reality stars free speech. Also read: Duck Dynasty: Inside the Decision to Suspend Phil Robertson (Exclusive) I dont think this is about the first amendment, Ferraro said. I feel its more about the America we live in today. That is one where Americans, gay and straight, are able to speak out when people in the public eye make anti-gay and racist remarks.

This guy really works at GLAAD?
If he does, he and his program will lose all credibility and the alternate lifestyle folks will have won.
It’s only “the America we live in” because the silent majority has been silent. The homosexual gestapo has bowled over everyone. They have had no push back, until now. That’s the only reason they think “the America we live in” is accepting of their perverted behaviour. Guess what.....they’re not.
What did he say that anyone could possibly construe as being racist?
A group of militant queers, GLAAD, is now a “media watchdog group”? Are you kidding me? Who the hell is watching the “watchdogs”?
Queers are a race?
Must be part of the rainbow coalition.

Awwwwww, - - - - .
The Homo Bullies got a tiny taste of their own medicine.
Tsch, tsch, tsch.
Robertson gave some anecdotes of his personal experience of life in black and white pre-welfare state, and the MSM is trying to gin that up into “racism” and falsely saying he said “before civil rights”. He said nothing of the kind, and opposition to the welfare state is both a conservative and a Biblical principle since Adam was kicked out of Eden.
Not going to dig out the quote right now, but something along the lines of how blacks and whites got along better before the civil right movement. Certainly something that the left could/would twist to fit their agenda.
I’m sure the feminazis are doing that (they’re just waiting their turn for the microphone, behind the sodomites and the racebaiters), because the family’s latest statement referred to their “patriarch”.
More like MAAD than GLAAD.
May the pushback and the backlast grow even stronger. I’ve had it with this PC/Marxist nonsense.
There's a difference between speaking out, and silencing someone because you don't like what they had to say.
Tried to post this twice already. Don’t know why having trouble. Anal cancer is the gays’ new plague.
Direct excerpt from the GQ article.
Phil On Growing Up in Pre-Civil-Rights-Era Louisiana:
I never, with my eyes, saw the mistreatment of any black person. Not once. Where we lived was all farmers. The blacks worked for the farmers. I hoed cotton with them. Im with the blacks, because were white trash. Were going across the field ... Theyre singing and happy. I never heard one of them, one black person, say, I tell you what: These doggone white peoplenot a word! ... Pre-entitlement, pre-welfare, you say: Were they happy? They were godly; they were happy; no one was singing the blues.
What’s M stand for?
GLAAD and A&E is going to have eat crow. Yahoo News is not made up of radical right wing Neanderthals like me.
I won’t be tolerating them or anyone else on the left anymore at all ever again.
The newspeak phrase “before civil rights” is how it was described by the Liars on the Left. Phil never said it...
Please don’t parrot them.
This is basically what he said:
GLAAD thinks they are important.
I remember when Sarah Palin used the word “tolerate” when she was talking about Gays. She was attacked immediately.
Whoops! Should be: http://freerepublic.com/focus/f-chat/3103898/posts
Ferraro said. I feel its more about the America we live in today. That is one where Americans, gay and straight, are able to speak out when people in the public eye make anti-gay and racist remarks.
Anti-gay remarks are normal...
Pro-gay remarks are abnormal..
You know..... QUEER..
For once I’d like to read the remarks of a lisping faggot in phonetic transliteration in the interest of honesty in media reporting!
Perhaps if you had scrolled down a bit further you would have seen that this has already been posted, with quite a few comments as well.
Read it as a word... mad. For a bunch of folks who have found supposed ecstasy they are profoundly grim!
Forgot to add: -and saved yourself quite a bit of trouble with posting by simply reading instead.
Sorry, well deserved!!
When Romney ran for Governor in Massachusetts, he used the word “unbecoming” during a debate against his female opponent. Apparently, that is a sexist term. Imagine if Princess Hillary or Dizzie Miss Lizzie get the Dem nod in 2016? All bases covered.
Glad I could contribute to your entertainment this evening.
You are so right! The gestapo leftist gay rights groups have finally awakened the Christian right... Welcome to the “oh crap” club! They have picked upon the wrong folks!
This guy is lacking either a sense of irony or a grip on reality. Someone needs to send him Mark Steyn's The Age of Intolerance.
As if he doesn't already know what his group has done to usher it in.
At least he didn’t look at her and say “ibecumming”.
Ditto brother. If you don’t have to tolerate me, guess I don’t have to tolerate you.
Just sharing information. Please don’t take offense.
That “before civil rights” crap is a Liberal Wet Dream line. They hoped he said it, but he wasn’t even close.
Every article that I’ve read in the MSM ASSUMES that everyone automatically recognizes the GLAAD acronym. I don’t. Does anyone in FR know? Seriously, I’ve never heard of it before this week.
MacNaughton shared information. You went for a cheap shot. So folks got informed, and you got your entertainment. Everybody wins.
Probably. They’d probably have a fit of the vapors if they saw my little collection of frilly aprons. Feminazis, all leftists really, are so scripted and predictable. I don’t even try to hear them anymore, it’s like listening to a broken record.
Finish the sentence, GLAAD: "What goes around . . ."

“Every article that Ive read in the MSM ASSUMES that everyone automatically recognizes the GLAAD acronym. I dont. Does anyone in FR know? Seriously, Ive never heard of it before this week.”
Gays, Lesbians And Affiliated Dumb-asses.
I just know they’re a collection of various perverts, that’s close enough for me.
