And if you still don't think Phil resonates with the populous look at this thread. 10 pages overnight on 1st Amendment issues. Did he plan this? Maybe, he's far from stupid.

Thought Criminals will be sought out, targeted and exposed!

And punished; shunned by the Kollective.

Any public utterance with less than solemn reverence for the Designated Protected Class will not be Tolerated.

Unity is the Eradication of Dissent, only in Lockstep Compliance in Purity of Thought can Society hope to Move Forward, komrades!

I look Forward to the Re-Education of this Enemy of The People.

Let his transgression be a lesson to all who dare disagree with the Current Truth!

You will komply, by whatever means necessary, for your own good.

First, there is no "intolerance" here. Phil said something and people responded. They have the right to do that. No one has to sit there and shut up simply because you want them to. Secondly, You don't get to whine and preach about how people should accept your opinions when you won't accept the opinions of others.


Wait... I cannot express my opinion? I dont think that is what you mean. I do NOT expect other's to "accept" my opinion. I am fully aware that there is little chance that I will chance anyone's opinion. I am 59 years old and it doesnt take that many years to figure out that most people's opinion will NOT be changed even when presented with pristine logic.

I am not saying other's cannot express their opinion .. where do you get that? I have repeatedly used the term punish ...

I have repeatedly expressed dismay that people take what he has said to be of importance, and yet our govt is getting away with trashing our constitution. If people will get this outraged over a yokel's statement in an interview WHY are they not absolutely outraged over the govt's actions?

I do get to whine...I am whining about his "punishment" not that people shouldnt disagree...wtf? I have repeatedly stated that we have the right to express our opinions. I have also stated that the importance of this matter seems to be way overstated as opposed to REAL issues we face.

Try again

The Family should take their ball and go to another playground (Network).

He made no slur against people, he stated his personal view and that was it.

Yet crybabies like GLAD bangs their drums and get A&E to cower to them.

No problem. I will now support this family and their products.
I will never watch A&E unless they reinstate him.

Don't kid yourself. This is intolerance in flying colors. He didn't even say what he did on the show but to an unrelated news source and his public position on a tv show is jeopardized.


He is a public figure and was a representative of A&E. What he says reflects on their channel. They took steps to protect what is their bottom line. That's not intolerance, it's business.



This comes from somewhere else. If where a matter of the almighty dollar they wouldn't have fired him. The gay guy that does the wedding gown show, whatever its called, his audience probably doesn't care what goes on over on the Duck show and visa versa. There are other reality shows with prominent gay figures. Different audiences.

No this comes from on high. Its about teaching the backwoods rednecks a thing about their anti gay speech. Rednecks are to dumb to tune the channel if one of their own goes down so no real revenue loss was anticipated by the suits over at A&E. Nope this is about teaching those old backwoods bible bangers a thing or two.

Bigotry is bad for business.
Want to stay on TV, don't spout your backward xenophobic beliefs where people can see.

Yeah, and the first amendment has NOTHING to do with this! All that shows is that, like Sarah Palin, the majority of the people here don't even know what the First Amendment IS.

How is he wrong. He was asked about HIS view on this issue. What was he supposed to do? Lie? Anyone that watches him knows he wouldn't lie.




I think people can't handle the truth people have become to sensitive.

I don't know why America cares what these people say or do? I have much better things to waste my time on than watching these guys. The show IMO looks horrible, maybe one step up from Honey Bo Bo.

I don't know why anyone is surprised the guy in the show would say something like that -- I mean just look at the dude. I haven't watched the show but I could have told you just by profiling his appearance he'd probably not be in favor of the homosexual lifestyle.

Pretty much, we also talking about a public that goes to wal-mart once a year every friday and beats each other down over TV's. Call me a snob, but I'll take the public with a grain of salt.

Oh and non-progressives don't do that? I remember Obama being accused of being a communist because he didn't wear enough flag pins. Really, stop pretending progressives are somehow the only people who go after others with opinions that are different than theirs. As a person who lives in the south I could tell you about the amount of abuse I've received from people here because I don't share their beliefs.


ahh yes....

let's justify our own intolerance with the intolerance of others. This is how wars start.



That's not what you mean. You mean in lieu of war why don't you guys just lay down and let us kick you. You dumb rednecks.

I expect him to own it. He isn't a coward no reason to start acting like one now. Whats the point of having free speech if your not going to use it.

How will he "own" it? "Yes, I said those things and that is my opinion and beliefs." Seems redundant to me.

Don't get biblical? Really? Phil Robertson used the Bible as the source of his hatred.

Ah, you're talking about the REAL version of the 1st, not the perceived one that everyone is concerned with now. You are correct BUT that is not what is being parlayed in today's political arena.
