Skip to comments.MSNBC: How do we combat 'Duck Dynasty' clan from doing what's legal?
Posted on 01/04/2014 7:08:30 AM PST by kcvl
Because MSNBC long ago stopped being a news channel in favor of becoming visual left-wing talk radio, the "Lean Forward" network continues to make a fool of itself in ways both big (mocking a black infant) and small. On a slow news Friday, MSNBC rising star Thomas Roberts and a guest spit-balled on the air over how to "combat" the Duck Dynasty clan from doing something legal -- like releasing their own line of firearms:

Apparently, the way MSNBC and its neo-fascist guests intend to stop the “Duck Dynasty” clan from doing what is legal is to continue to smear the Bible as bigoted.
And why MSNBC has the lowest ratings of any cable “news” outlet
MSNBC didn’t get the note from the Gay Mafia to shut up about the whole thing because it backfired.
The left long ago took over American media.
Duck Dynasty was a huge mistake for the leftist media. Duck Dynasty won. Americans saw it, and agreed with it.
The media lost and needs to turn tail and go away on this.
Who buys advertising on MSNBC and the parent?
These are the people to go after.
MSNBC: We need to close the free speech loophole!
I’ve got a news flash for “LADD EVERITT” .... there is going to be no ‘backfire’ .... in fact, if the guns DD is putting their name on are considered decent guns, they’ll sell like hotcakes. Again, this guy is putting HIS take on the comments as racist and homophobic .... some of us think Phil spoke the truth. Actually, a lot of people thought Phil spoke the truth and will continue to support him and his family.

MSNBC is NEVER watched in our household and never will be.
Since we don’t watch them my question is: WHO are their sponsors? I would like to boycott them and if joined by millions of others, may just hit them in the pocket book, the only thing they understand.
Sorry MSNBC but you ain’t gonna combat anything. 53 viewers does not give you any clout...
Apparently, FReepers love MSNBC. More attention is given to their network on here than they have viewers. I think all articles that say MSNBC in the title should be banned. :)
Ladd Everitt has served as the Director of Communications of the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence since May 2006. In this position, he is responsible for developing and managing a wide range of communications activities in support of the organization s overall mission.
Considering how low their ratings are I am very surprised anyone will buy ad time from them. Some one is artificially propping them up.
Exactly. Britebart’s ghost is just pushing buttons here. Some show on the Food Network that tells you how to bake a soufflé probably gets better ratings than most of MSNBC’s dreck. Parenthetically, the Duck Dynasty clan is pushing buttons, too, and making money hand over fist in the process.
They're being manufactured by Mossberg. Mossberg makes good guns.
Ladd should ask GLAAD how that “backlash” is working out for them.
I suspect A&E wanted to portray the Robertsons as a modern day version of the Beverly Hillbillies. Some back country patriarch comes into some money....is too stooopid to know what to do with it....hijinxs ensues.
It didn’t work out that way.
I’d heard it was Mossberg .... DD/Mossberg will do just fine at a minimum ...... Ladd will be so sad.
I didn’t know DD was going to have their own line of guns until I saw this article on the news about MSNBC opposing it. Thanks, MSNBC for bringing it to my attention. I’ll be one of their customers!
Don’t you just love how they keep saying “anti-gay” as if it’s a bad thing? And why is it that we’re always “anti-gay” but they never describe themselves as “anti-life” even “anti-gun”. They’re always “pro-choice” or “pro-gun control”.
Maybe it’s time we started calling ourselves “pro-hetero”, which is precisely what Phil Robertson did..
Stick with defining ourselves as being on the right side, but portray it as being “for” something, not “against” something.
I completely agree with you on this.
Wow. Yep. Another marriage government gay pimp. The only good marriage is a gay advised marriage. DD got in the king’s buffoon territory and the gubermentnis not amused of losing philosophical commedy brainwash purposed monopoly
Sam Walton had its own shotgun lines... hint to Walmart guns.
Here's where living in the Echo Chamber fails. He doesn't realize that "very moderate" people know for a fact -- because, unlike leftists, they have actually read or seen the actual GQ article and the original dug-up video -- that "misogynist, racist, anti-gay" are all lies.
So did Ted Williams. Sold at Sears. Along with their line of JC Higgins sporting goods.
The anti-self defense activists are all breaking civil rights laws, they all need to be rounded up, tried, jailed and left unemployed. The money men like bloomturd then need to start paying damages, a lot of damages for financing the violation of civil rights.
who writes those paychecks???
I bet if you trace back far enough there is a government grant or 10 in the funding pipeline for these morons.
They are decent guns, Mossbergs, if I recall correctly. They’re not the high dollar Benellis the Robertsons use but they are good quality, affordable, working mans guns.
It’s a brilliant move.
Especially for Mossberg! ;-)
If I have to register it with the gummint, forget it. I take the 2nd Amendment as it is.
Indeed, I do not own a weapon and never considered owning one but will seriously look into buying one of these DD/Mossberg guns for the simple reason it will be a great conversation piece when mounted over my fireplace and may just be worth something down the road.
Hell, maybe I can even get an autograph on the stock. Now THAT would be a great PR move for the DD clan.
This is one of those times, I could switch from Comcast to U-verse. This is content Comcast does not need.
If you choose to boycott advertisers based on where they choose
to advertise then you should contact them and let them know
what networks or programs upset you. Companies tend to spread
their ad dollars around. The commercials seen on MSNBC are
also seen on FOXNEWS.
That appears to be exactly what happened. I remember the ads and previews of the show just before and after it aired. They were portrayed as a bunch of moron redneck hicks that we were supposed to laugh at.
Sadly the libs running a&e seem to think that portrayal is accurate for rural southerners. I was with the a&e boycott when the blow up with DD started but that was hard to do since I never watch anything on it.
I think Microsoft backed out of the arrangement a while ago, but I’m pretty sure NBC is underwriting this garbage.
“And I think many of them will not embrace the type of, you know, misogynist, racist, anti-gay comments that Phil Robertson is making.”
Based on your network’s abysmal ratings “many of them” do not embrace the type of, you know, misogynist, racist, pro-gay comments that MSNBC is making...
Another fascist confiscator for The List.
Resistance. Restoration. Retribution.
I guess it beats having to work for a living. The boy looks like a fairy.
You're right Flaming - you can feel in Thomas Roberts' comments he hates that it's legal for Phil of Duck Dynasty to hold different views than he holds. Roberts is one of the creepier totalitarians on MSNBC ...
The show is rated higher by women of all ages than men. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2229907/ratings
Females under 18, 18-29, 30-44 and 45+ all rate the show higher than their male counterparts.
The Ass-Worshiping Lover-Boyz.
I believe you're right lacrew. Liberal elite haters at A&E wanted to laugh at traditional Americans - NOT give them platform from which to speak. I'll bet Phil knew that... and allowed the A&E buffoons to feel 'oh so superior' until he had them right where he wanted them...
A&E knows what they are doing. Just when DD should start flagging in the ratings Phil grabs the national spotlight? And then AE doubles down on episodes? Watch what AE does not what they say.
As for DD their mission is to make money. That is not a family of rednecks. Pay attention to pre-DD pictures, notice the college degrees, even the church is not redneck. Heck, duck hunting is not generally considered a redneck activity.
My guess is that they are social conservatives and populist. In a former political age they would have been blue dog democrats.
Ed Schnauzerkiller, Chris Manlove and Eric Dice Gay are waiting on a delivery from Obama.
Who cares what they say? Nobody is watching.
