Skip to comments.‘Duck Dynasty’ Reversal Shows GLAAD Has an Expiration Date

A few years ago, I couldnt imagine a network disregarding GLAADs recommendations.
Phil v. The Gays. With which will we side? Or rather, against which will we side? This is the question that society demands we answer. Are we anti-Phil or anti-gay or anti-GLAAD or anti-A&E or anti- ?
Perhaps no other word sums up the Duck Dynasty fiasco as aptly as the word anti.
Whenever I hear that someone is anti-this or that, I immediately think of the old quip about MADD are there any mothers for drunk driving? and ask myself if anyone is really in favor of the particular thing being protested. Since GLAAD has recently taken a hard-line stance against Phil Robertsons anti-gay comments, Ive been asking myself a similar question about defamation: Who among us is for it? Most of us are decidedly against defamation, although we choose not to publicly participate in institutional demonstrations to prove how against it we are. But, of course, GLAAD is an institution, and therefore their criticism reverberates at systemic levels.
Founded in 1985 in the wake of the AIDS crisis, GLAAD was formed to protest skewed coverage of LGBT issues and to put pressure on media organizations to end homophobic reporting. The original name was an acronym for Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation, and although the organization has recently rebranded itself by deciding that the letters G-L-A-A-D arent actually going to stand for anything any more, their reputation for protesting defamatory speech is well known both within and without the LGBT community....

There is still an ever-glimmering effervescing light of hope that we will soon begin to take this country back. However, it will be a grueling fight, as we have enemies in both outside and inside our camp that need to be eradicated.

Baltimore, huh? I’m so proud.
In the final analysis the A&E executives are a bunch of Christian bashing decadent lowlifes. They just might choke eating the crow they are downing to preserve their golden duck. Would be nice if they ended up losing the series.
The homos have gotten in America’s face once to often. Normal Americans are fed up with the homos’ goofy antics. They’re freaks and no matter how many of America’s great institutions they infiltrate, they’ll always be angry, bitter freaks.
“Historically theyve been a symbol of inclusion and tolerance, and theyve worked tirelessly to infuse these values into our controlling media discourses. Frankly, though, I dont think their hasty reaction to Phil Robertson displayed our LGBT communitys best values.”
” Historically, tolerance”no, say forced acceptance instead. Values, what values, please be specific. Controlling media discourses, exactly, not freedom of speech, but control of the oppositions right to free speech. Hasty reaction best values, what values, please be specific. This is not a question of homophobia as they would have us believe, it is a question of control of the dialogue. Truth is not in the discourse. You shall know the truth and the truth shall set you free. John 8:32.
Time magazine is still around???????
