Skip to comments.GLAAD Remains Mad, Doubles Down on Being Bad
Posted on 12/23/2013 12:46:33 AM PST by 2ndDivisionVet
GLAAD says they have never gotten more angry phone calls and emails than they have since they decided to launch their attack on Phil Robertson, and escalated their speech and thought war against Christians at the same time.
But Yahoo reports that theyre not apt to learn anything. The group still wants to re-educate Phil Robertson.
After the meeting (between A&E executives and GLAAD), GLAAD issued its statement on Robertsons comments. A&E initially released a statement from Robertson in which he said he would never treat anyone with disrespect just because they are different from me. But the network declined to comment itself until Wednesday night, when it announced the suspension, which GLAAD applauded.
We believe the next step is to use this as an opportunity for Phil to sit down with gay families in Louisiana and learn about their lives and the values they share, the spokesman said.
The organization is also currently researching companies who use Robertson as a spokesperson.
There is no veil over that threat: GLAAD still wants Robertson to do exactly what they say, or they will try to deprive Robertson and his family of their livelihood. GLAAD would be called a McCarthyist group if they werent among the medias favorite go-to activist cells. GLAAD has no intention of meeting with the Christians it wants to persecute.
GLAADs a strategy that is bound to fail. They made the classic mistake of overreaching (cf. Napoleons invasion of Russia).
Two of Duck Dynastys sponsors, Under Armor and Skyjacker, have already said theyre sticking with the show. Cracker Barrel, on the other hand, may have forgotten who its customers are. The Robertsons home town is solidly behind the family. Walmart and Academy, two of the Duck Commander/DD brands largest outlets, show no sign of dropping either. The merch is flying off the shelves. GLAADs overreach has made them subjects of mockery and derision, not fear. A&E now looks duplicitous and cowardly, because they are, and the channel is likely to lose its most profitable show. Duck Dynasty could thrive on literally any broadcast outlet. The Robertsons, those rednecks that A&Es suits expected to mock, dont even need the show to remain rich. The swamp folks hold all the cards.
Amazing that GLAAD thinks Robertson needs to be “educated.” They simply cannot comprehend that many people consciously reject their behavior and no amount of “education” will change that. The stance of those who reject the homosexual agenda is well-considered and not at all based on ignorance but on quite the opposite.
Who are the leaders of GLAAD? They should be exposed, isolated, mocked and destroyed.
Remember how powerful Jesse Jackson was until someone of Wall Street finally decided to stand up to his shake downs? Jesse has all but disappeared. Phil has stood up to GLAAD and they too will crumble.
“...Robertson in which he said he would never treat anyone with disrespect just because they are different from me.”
I wonder if he gets the same consideration from liberals.
A&E can take dirty man anus sex and get bent.
They procreate shit. I challenge A&E to say otherwise.
Happy, Happy Happy
Make no mistake: the "education" they have in mind is actually the "re-education" practiced by the late, unlamented communist totalitarians. Their "education" is to sway those who are not committed to the ideal the educators are opposing.
Those who ARE committed to said ideals are bound for the gulags, or the wall.
That’s interesting about Cracker Barrel. I’ve never trusted their glad-handing, overly solicitous ways so I wasn’t at all surprised that they got cold feet. Good to know they are rethinking the situation.
By the way, my local Barnes & Noble is keeping their DD display.
The Gays in Louisiana can show up at Phil’s Bible Study.
Based on GLAAD’S kneejerk reaction, you would thing Phil Robertson was manufacturing Gay Commander “Gay Calls” for the Rednecks to use when hunting them.
BTW - The South has a very large Gay Population. The difference is, people just don’t care. The Gays I have met when visiting Relatives in Mississippi are very nice people. They don’t have the in your face (pardon the pun) attitude of the Liberal Gays on the East and Left Coasts, it’s everyone goes along to get along.
Not to be trite, but it’s the same with the Southern Black Population. Everyone gets along fine, as Phil made mention of when talking about his Childhood working the fields alongside Blacks. The Inner City Blacks and the rural Southern Blacks are completely different people from my experience.
The whole Gay issue is simply this, they expect everyone to “approve” of their lifestyle, while people who don’t usually “tolerate” their lifestyle. Tolerance isn’t good enough for them. They have a complete misunderstanding of “Freedom of Association”.
So they want to punish him still? He should tell them take a hike.
I boycott the entirety of American pop culture. It’s all about homo advacocy.
Exactly. It is because I am educated about that I reject gays as being normal. No amount of education will change my core beliefs. And I have a feeling it wouldn't change Phil's either.
I am advised that one local area ShopCo decided to reduce the price of all their DD stuff by 40% thinking that DD would “go south”. Stupid move? Yes, everything sold out pretty quickly but the area Walmart’s kept their price as listed and made a ton of money. Bad marketing decision on ShopCo’s part.
GLAAD is maad too baad so saad.
Out the leaders of GLAAD. Give ‘em the Alinsky treatment, humiliate and ridicule.
I wonder how their Obama stuff is selling?
Those Obama Celebratory Plates would make great Targets at the Range, as long as I can get them for a dime, no make that a plug nickel.
“Those Obama Celebratory Plates would make great Targets...”
Remember 0bama “shooting skeet”? PULL!!!
I don’t believe for a second anything gays say about how many angry calls they have received. These people have proven time and time again that they are liars who will create stories of persecution out of thin air in order to bring attention to themselves.
GLAAD is stupid and A&E is getting nervous because this firestorm is not going away and has escalated (thanks to the militant homo overreach). Phil Robertson and his family aren’t going to back down and they aren’t going to be intimidated by a bunch of ranting Nancy boys. The Robinson family doesn’t need A&E, but A&E needs the Robinsons.
It is a trap! GA & E have set up the next season to have a Robertson come out of the closet and the family will accept it!
Scripted? These are clever people who are manipulating us.
This is our Spartacus moment.
I am Phil Robertson.
Have you seen the k-mart add “JINGLE BALLS”. I will never buy anything from k-mart and I will celebrate their demise.
It’ll never happen. This family is the real deal. They’ll walk — regardless of contractual obligations — before they’ll toe that line. Won’t happen. These aren’t politicians. They mean their Christianity and live what they say.
Well, I looked it up on YouTube. I thought it was cute and not inappropriate for all audiences.
Sure you can, Jack.
That’s kind of the way my nieces and nephews look at me already, albeit for slightly different reasons.
In my perfect world, hillbillies , hicks and bikers would save the country.
Embrace your inner redneck...:)
For everyone with a smart phone
A group of underwear clad men looking quite metrosexual and playing Jingle Bells by clanging their balls from side to side seemed in your face and repulsive to me... and the finally was the real kicker. I found it offensive as did my wife and two neighbors that were watching a Christmas movie with us at the time. I respect your opinion but I personally will never again do business with k-mart.
BTW, Merry Christmas.
I guess GLAAD’s phony power went up in smoke.
Thank you and Merry Christmas to you as well!
A big Thank You back at you!
LOOOL! Those bits were hilarious!
Notice how condescending this is. Typical of leftists.
In time of war the Left always congratulates those whom they call `conscientious objectors’.
Well, I am a conscientious objector to homosexuality. How ‘bout them apples, GLAAD people?
In my old neighborhood in NC, I was walking my dog shortly after we moved in and met a wonderful man. He was Conservative and we spent much time discussing what was going on in the world. I had actually wanted to fix him up with a friend of mine and didn’t know how to approach this. During one conversation, he mentioned he was going on vacation with his parents and ... his partner. This was after over two years of conversations.
Such a refreshing difference from the ‘I’m queer and I’m here’ crowd - who have no concept of respect for others and their wants and needs override everyone else’s.
And, it is strange that one man I know who ‘came out’ about twenty years ago changed immediately from a confident man to a girly, swishy, flamboyant sissy. It is an insult as that is what they think women are and think they can take our place.
And very quickly, with a sincere apology, I might add. There's is a rare example of an honest mistake, not pervasive culture of political correctness. Thank God, because I love to eat there!
I believe the next step is to use this as an opportunity for A&E to sit down with Christians and learn about their lives and the values they share.
This is beginning to remind me of Shadrach, Meschach and Abed-nego.
The audacity of this GLAAD spokesthing (not a man) is mind boggling. Do you really want Phil to sit down with gay families in LA? He's going to repeat what he said earlier. Putting him in front of the mentally ill is not going to cause him to turn his back on his faith.
This could be the first really serious setback for the homosexual advance we have seen over the past years. Its a small battle in a big culture war (scroll up to see the fawning story about two men married (coupled) at the Ft Bragg Chapel) but we have not been winning many battles lately so winning this one feels good. Its classic human nature to keep reaching and finally over reach, GLAAD is too bigoted and hate filled to even understand the huge mistake they may have made. No retreat, no surrender......Hitler shared the same philosophy that GLAAD shows now.
I agree 100%. I’ve seen the commercial too and change the channel.
What is that? Is it a blow up doll?
of course, the gay groups are just like terrorists, no matter how many times they are defeted, they still strap the bombs on .
Liberal pressure groups are terrorist organizations.
If Phil sits down with them I’m betting the gays will get the “educatin’”.
You're welcome - I'm sure it was my note to them that caused the quick turn around.
