Good News, Bigots – ‘Duck Dynasty’ Is Coming Back!

phil robertson

Phil Robertson seemingly got himself in a world of hurt when he started spouting off racist and homophobic shit in an interview with GQ. This prompted A&E to suspend him from Duck Dynasty, and then the rest of the family threatened to not do the show because of it. A&E, being a huge international money-making company and all, started shitting themselves because Duck Dynasty has spawned all these weird merchandising deals and what the hell were they gonna do with all that stuff if the show didn’t go on? Did they really want to lose all that profit? Of course not, so they’ve said nevermind about the whole suspension thing and now it’ll be business as usual with Duck Dynasty. Fuuuuuuuuuuck off.

Here’s A&E’s statement (via US Weekly):

“As a global media content company, A+E Networks’ core values are centered around creativity, inclusion and mutual respect. We believe it is a privilege for our brands to be invited into people’s home and we operate with a strong sense of integrity and deep commitment to these principals.”

“That is why we reacted so quickly and strongly to a recent interview with Phil Robertson. While Phil’s comments made in the interview reflect his personal views based on his own beliefs, and his own personal journey, he and his family have publicly stated they regret the ‘coarse language’ he used and the mis-interpretation of his core beliefs based only on the article. He also made it clear he would ‘never incite or encourage hate.’ We at A+E Networks expressed our disappointment with his statements in the article, and reiterate that they are not views we hold.”

Ha, okay, shut up, A&E, no one’s buying it. I think this is bullshit any way you slice it, but I also would respect the network that much more if they were just honest from the beginning and said, “Look guys, sure it sucks that this family is racist and homophobic as hell, but it’s a TV show that’s making us a lot of money, so deal with it.” Instead, they decided to “suspend” Phil to set an example but when that backfired and the whole show was nearly going off the air, they just let it go. The family hasn’t “regretted coarse language” at all, because it’s exactly the language they’ve been preaching about in their “church” for years.

Rednecks will be rednecks, and that’s fine (and by “redneck”, I mean it in the worst sense – not based on geographic location, but based on ignorance and intolerance), but as Judge Judy would say, don’t piss on my leg and tell me it’s raining.

  • He would never incite hate?? Everyone is focusing on his GQ article comments but did no one see the video of his sermon in church??? Watch this and tell me he isn’t inciting hate. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jh0JJ4z3kx4&feature=share .. In the clip He says that Gays are full of “murder, envy, strife, hatred. They are insolent, arrogant, god-haters. They are heartless. They are faithless. They are senseless. They are ruthless. They invent ways of doing evil.” Come On. That guy is a homophobic asshole and is DEF promoting hate towards homosexuals. Shame on A&E.

      • Please show in the bible where God says ALL of that about gay ppl… While you’re doing your research, be mindful not to jump over that, “Judge not, lest ye be judged…” portion as well….
        This actually DOES come from the bible…

        But he said to them, “Not everyone can receive this saying, but only those to whom it is given. For there are eunuchs who have been so from birth, and there are eunuchs who have been made eunuchs by men, and there are eunuchs who have made themselves eunuchs for the sake of the kingdom of heaven. Let the one who is able to receive this receive it.” -Matthew 19:11-12

    • http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/bigot
      big•ot
      ?b?g ?tShow Spelled [big-uh t] Show IPA
      noun
      a person who is utterly intolerant of any differing creed, belief, or opinion.
      Origin:
      1590–1600; < Middle French ( Old French: derogatory name applied by the French to the Normans), perhaps < Old English b? God by God
      Individuals who would do ill or violence need no one to “incite” them they only need an opportunity! I find it enlightening, how in our society today, we are allowed to spew hate and venom at those we disagree with, when they come from a religious back ground or if they come from a more conservative prospective. But the truth is that the most hatful statements in this entire article have been issued from the pro-gay, prospective not those defending Mr. Roberts. And to those who would invoke the constitutionally guaranteed freedom of speech, I suggest you go back and actually read the 1st amendment.
      Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
      I think he has the right to practice His religion.

    • Definition of BIGOT: a person who is obstinately or intolerantly devoted to his or her own opinions and prejudices; especially : one who regards or treats the members of a group with hatred and intolerance.

      It may be his beliefs. But he is devoted to his opinion that members of the homosexuality community are second class. he has stated gay people create evil. That’s treating that community with hatred and intolerance. He obviously knows nothing about those specific people. that’s the definition of a BIGOT.

      You can think something is a “sin” or “wrong” and not bash people who don’t share your beliefs. Treating people and speaking about them with hate is what makes someone a Bigot.

      Phil Robertson is a bigot.

      Doesn’t Jesus say embrace everyone with love and don’t judge, that’s god’s job? maybe he should focus on those beliefs instead of being an asshole.

      • I get the feeling that you didn’t even read his comments in context. I would imagine that Phil is a far less bigoted person than you.

      • Did you watch the video too? No? I’m not basing my opinion off the magazine article alone. which I did read mind you. I’m personally more offended by his sermon.

        And even with the definition i provided for you, you obviously do not understand what a bigot is. I’m not a bigot. there is no evidence in the comment i made that even remotely suggests i hate a certain class of people.

      • Bigotry means intolerance to other points of view. It is not tied to a particular class of people; you can be a bigot for not tolerated the views of a single person.

      • I love it when crackheads try to quote the bibnle, a book they’ve never read and get it WRONG. Jesus never said don’t judge, it’s only there in the minds of idiots.

        What Jesus DID say is judge as you would be judged. Reading comprehension, it’s a skill, brush up on it and try some TRUTH once in a while.

        Oh and Anony? The only hate about phil is your blatant hate towards him. Get over it.

      • Hmmmm …..who seems to be judging???Being gay is WRONG, most gay people will even admit that. They have to resist the temptation of living that lifestyle. Some people the temptation may be drugs, alcohol or gambling and for some I guess its sleeping with someone of the same sex….ewww. Regardless, we all have our problems, no one is without sin, one sin isn’t any better than the other. Point being, resist.

  • I want to hear how high-minded A&E sounds when the ratings on that awful show start to tank. It makes me tired and angry when people in power talk to us “great unwashed” as if all of us are stupid and gullible…..like the people who watch and love Duck Dynasty.

      • Chuck…you are SO right. To vote for a man just because of his skin color is ignorance at its best. The man had/has no experience and he is running what was left of this country in the ground! Did you sign up for your Obamacare yet???

      • Ummm…. the MAJORITY of the votes were done so by WHITES… Remember, the people of THIS FINE country are “non-colored”…. So, kinda missing your point here. Who exactly are the hypocrites here?

      • You’re right. Gays don’t watch Duck Dynasty. Only retards watch DD, retard. That and the other brain dead show Lizard Lick Towing. You dumb motherfuckers need to watch the science channel.

  • Although i don’t agree with what he said (i have a NUMBER of gay friends), and his rhetoric is totally outlandish, but i WILL say that he has a right to an opinion and a right to say it. Its always funny to me how liberals spew hate toward the people who have beliefs or opinions that are different from theirs…but that’s okay?? The whole world will NEVER “think” the same…it’s impossible. Apparently the only people that can have or are entitled to opinions are liberals and non-Christians.

  • Awesome! Maybe the author of this story should do what he wrote in the last line. Finally people are standing up and not allowing the gladd community to bully them around. It’s funny, it’s all about free speach and respecting others rights and personal orientations until those people like gladd and their supporters get told something they don’t like. It’s a sign of the times…and the times are that the majority are tired of all the gay rights activist trying to force their beliefs on those of us who do NOT believe or feel the way they do. We don’t hate people if they are gay, but we are totally fed up and tired of hearing all this crap about discrimination and gay rights and all the B.S. that SOME gays try to incite among the peaceful God fearing people that don’t agree with the LGBT community’s moral values. We all have our own beliefs and we can all respect each other without all the hateful comments and finger pointing. Like I said, we don’t hate gays, but don’t get in our face and try to force your beliefs on us….just go be gay and quit calling so much attention to yourself and most likely noone will bother you. The less attention you draw to yourself the less other people with mess with you…..and what’s that called? Common sense and minding your own business….Maybe you should try it, especially if this comment offends you….

  • Finally someone, Truth2016, who put it perfectly. I don’t care what people do with their personal lives as long as it doesn’t negatively affect mine or my family. I am tired of the lgbt community running around telling everyone that they deserve rights over and above the rest of us because many people do not accept their lifestyles. Keep your business to yourselves, I don’t care what you do. I do not run around screaming I’m a heterosexual man. As for Phil Robertson, his opinion is his and based upon his upbringing, period. You liberal bigots should take your own advice and shut the hell up. No I’m not homophobic, as I do not care what you do. But, NO ONE can tell me that being a homosexual is NORMAL, I do accept it is a biological thing and can’t be helped. If it was normal, then 2 men or 2 women can come together to have a child, which we know they can’t. So if you don’t like what this man has to say, don’t watch his show, I don’t as it is ridiculous

    • I agree people need to read the bible more . read where it states man shall not lay with man , women shall not lay with women for this is an abomination in Gods eyes . Homosexualality is a sickness and the only reason anyone accepts it because our government officials keep telling us to so they can get the gay and lesbian vote . These people are sick and need to be eliminated before they infect us with there diseases .

  • As usual, one can’t say anything about blacks or gays because they are protected groups.

    But, Christians, conservatives are okay for libs to spew their hate.

    They called Romney a murderer last election and look at all the vitriole at Sarah Palin.

    The usual liberal double standard. Typical.

  • i think whoever wrote this article is a complete dumbass and a hypocrite, you say my brother in christ phil robertson is a bigot because he simply stated his own beliefs but then you state your belief that he is a bigot, you my friend are simply a hypocritical asshole, Then you continue to run your liberal, contradicting mouth calling him a “redneck in the worst sense” well I’ve got news for you, Guess who feeds your city slicking butt us rednecks do and guess who has the highest education rate after high school, us country folk do because running a farm, logging company, landscaping, or cattle ranching takes more brain power and knowledge than your job does and i say this knowing for a fact that figuring how much alfalfa, or hay that every head of cattle needs to live on for a week is how many acres i need to grow to be able to keep my holestines milking to so i can take the milk to market and keep my farm alive. This is 10 times harder than writing an article on a man you know nothing about behind a cheap desk you bought with lended money that your lazy college drop out butt couldn’t afford all just so you can write rude articles against us hard working americans your so self consciously jealous of and with that i’m done but i will pray for your simple minded arrogant ass.

  • First, homosexuality is a sin. It is clearly stated in the Bible.
    Second, the Bible quote is “Judge not, that ye be not judged.”
    (Matthew 7:1).
    Third, as a Christian, I find homosexuality to be an abomination against God. I know gay people and consider some to be acquaintances of mine.
    Fourth, I find it absolutely ironic that the same people who claim to be so open-minded an accepting of ALL people, are actually the most closed-minded and hate-filled people. They are liberals. They say they want equality for all and that everybody can voice their opinion…just as long as it agrees with their ideologies. God forbid if you should speak out against liberals for fear of being called a bigot or a racist.

    After the 2008 election, people said “I voted for Obama so I would look like a racist for not voting for a black man.” Guess what. Voting for a person based solely on his or her skin color is racist. Hands down. I didn’t vote for Obama NOT because he is black (he is actually only half black), but I did not vote for Obama because I love America and he does not. He studied Constitutional Law to find ways of getting around the Constitution or to get rid of it all together. I also did not vote for Obama because I believe in people making their own choices and NOT being told what to do and how to live by the government. Also, I am a Capitalist. I believe in the free market.

    With that, I will end with this. Phil Robertson has the God-given and Constitutional right to speak his mind. Others have the same right to disagree. However, when one group of people says that what he says make him a bigot or a racist or whatever you want to call him, and that he is unaccepting of others, just remember you are doing what you are claiming him of doing. That make you a hypocrite.

    • The BIble is a book of lies written by men. There is no God , only science. Your comment is 3 inches of textual shit.

  • Who cares the man was going from the book , he belives in . It aint like hes running around with a white sheet chasein colored people an killing the gays , , good show and great people , if you got upset over what he said . Get over it made hes right your need to change your ways . Cause hes right were all going to die .

  • let that man said what he think is right. he the one going to face the lord when it time .and for the show I don’t watch this s anyway because I know something was wrong what the show I have not see but one color on that show thank you

  • Al–

    Are you 100% sure that the Bible is full of lies? Prove it to me, and the rest of us, in a logical way that it is full of lies and written by men. As far as I know, it was written by God, verbally, and physically by men.

    One of the many problems with Liberalism is the lack of logic in arguments. As long as the feeling of being on the side of good and doing what is right is there, that is all that matters. Simple logic and common sense are usually thrown out the window.

    Again, prove to me, and the rest of us, that the Bible is full of lies. Just use logic to do so. That is all that I ask.

  • I guess I should have read the other notifications before posting.

    Al, why do you have so much hate in you? This is the same hate you claim Mr. Robertson has towards blacks and gays. It seems to me, Mr. Sharpton, that if anybody has any hatred towards others, it is you.

    I mentioned this before. Liberals always say that everybody had right to their opinion and are guaranteed under the First Amendment of the United States Constitution to freely speak their mind. However, when a Conservative or a Christian (or God forbid even worse…a Conservative Christian), the first to start yelling and spewing hate speech are Liberals.

    It is all part of the Liberal hypocrisy. Just like abortion and capital punishment. Liberals don’t want to kill people who murder dozens of people or even cops, or even those who rape little kids (which according to some Liberals is a natural and wholesome thing to do). Yet, when it comes to abortion, they are okay with it. In other words, liberals want to kill innocent children, while letting murderers, rapists, and pedophiles live. Maybe even letting them back into society to do it again.

    Just Liberal hypocrisy.
