Or when Pierce Morgan talked about Gun Control and everyone said he should be fired, and shut up and kicked off the air. granted he wasn't but people are quick to strike when the shoe is on the other foot.
This website is hilarious. So many take pride in ATS and even act like the majority here are 'in the know', yet when something that is very black and white happens, the majority on here seem to end up on the ignorant side of the argument. I still visit this website for its content, because many posters are educated and offer insight that you won't find in most places, but the majority do not. I'm sure this will be removed, but whatever. The moderation here is hilarious, as well.
So, onto the point for those who get to see my comment before it likely gets removed. If you believe this situation has anything to do with free speech, you are ignorant and in need of educating yourself. This literally has nothing to do with free speech, the First Amendment, nor any notion of protected rights. Nothing. This is two free entities doing and saying what they feel is right for their respective self's. That's it. Any notion to the contrary is hilariously misinformed.
Hahahaha lololololol, let us talk about uneducated and misinformed. Man you really stuck your foot in your butt lol. People hear are talking about free speech as it applies to this company swaying to the morality of who screams the loudest. In this case liberal media outlets and self ascribed spokesman for the gay and lesbian community.
The point is at it's core this about free speech. AE knew exactly what they were getting when they started this show and should not be crying when he exercised his red neck right say whatever the hell he wanted to. Now every single media outlet is devoting twenty minutes each hour arguing whether his right to free speech should have cost his job.
Each media outlet, I just checked four, five, they all arguing free speech. You don't seem to get it, not us.
As for the site, don't stick around for our sake, in ignorant words don't let the door hit you in the arse on your way out lol.
I dont think the lgbt community will care. Figure out the rate of hiv and you are talking about a group of mass serial killers. Not a big surprise these people gain pleasure off others pain.
Older Populations When people think of those populations most impacted by HIV/AIDS, older persons are often the last to come to mind. However, older people are at increasing risk for HIV/AIDS and other STDs. A growing number of older people now have HIV/AIDS. People age 50 and older represent almost one-fourth of all people with HIV/AIDS in the U.S. (1). Because older people don't get tested for HIV/AIDS on a regular basis, there may be even more cases than currently known.
Where the "conservative media's" outrage when the Dixie Chicks lambasted GWB over the Iraq war?
ohhhh- that's right- they called for an all out boycott of them.
I guess freedom of speech only counts to conservatives when one of their own puts their disgusting bigotry on display.
But seriously though...I don't know why anyone is surprised that a dumb redneck is anti-gay and uses the bible in condemnation. It's kind of expected of them to behave as such
bashir? he targeted a single person. not a group, but he was able to resign.

I am bisexual, female, and I have never watched Duck Dynasty. I read his comments. I don't think he should have been put on any sort of "hiatus". He didn't cross a line. He expressed some opinions that I personally disagree with, and so do many others; but muzzling him doesn't do anyone any favors long term. People need to lighten up, and this man is paying a disproportionate price for that cultural thin skin.
The whole situation is so absurd that I suspect the network was simply looking for an excuse to tank the show. In spite of it's huge popularity at the moment there are signs in the popular culture tea leaves that blow-back is imminent, so maybe they were just gettin' out while the gettin' was good.
Phil Robertson disrespected gay employees at A&E ... and THAT'S why he was sacked from "Duck Dynasty" ... sources connected with the network tell TMZ.
We're told A&E CEO Nancy Dubuc felt she could not in good conscience ask gay employees to kill themselves for a show when he disrespected them by calling them sinners.
Our sources say ... gay employees involved in the production -- and there are a number of them -- were outraged by Phil's comments to GQ and wanted Dubuc to give him the ax.

Hollywood Gay Lobby?
My friend, although I am not physically in LA, I do know for a fact that Hollywood is populated by a good chunk of straight whites, Jews and closet pedophiles.
Tell me more about this with sufficient documentation to back this up.
As a gay man i think the whole thing is stupid. IMO GLAAD is becoming as distasteful as the NAACP.
Yeah I get your point, we all have rights, some of us seem to want more rights than everyone else.
