If I don't subscribe to your ideology, and can force ATS to ban you, is that right?

If you could convince Springer, SO, and crew to ban someone simply because they disagreed with your ideology it would be right. Maybe not ethically but at the same time they own the site and can ban people for whatever reason. At the same time if they started banning people for no other reason than beezer said so I think they would start seeing a lot less people choosing to use their site.

Phil Robertson's right to free speech has not been violated. He can still say what ever here want wherever he wants. At the same time your First Amendment right still stand as well. If you disagree with A&E's business decision boycott them. Not only that boycott their sponsors. Make it known that the reason these sponsors are losing money is because they support a company whose business practices you disagree with. Time and time again I see people on this site complain about things being unfair and nothing more. Guess what? Life's not fair. Whining won't change that. You've actually got to take action.

So having one specific ideology determining where you can express your ideology is acceptable to you?

Thanks for your input.

What are your thoughts on ATS banning the conspiracies towards Sandy Hook? In a true open format all discussions should be fair game, right? I find it odd that we can discuss some crazy 9/11 conspiracies (where many families have been hurt), but Sandy Hook is off limits....

But A&E doesn't have the right to kick him of the show because it was not in the show it was in an interview. Yes they are worried about boycotting, obviously because of what he said and that's why they kicked him off. BUT there is also the boycotting for kicking him off too. I agree. The point is they also removed "In Jesus' name" in the Duck Dynasty episodes while they're saying grace, worried about offending the people who don't believe in Jesus....this is way too ridiculous. Let people make their own decisions, most people who watch the show are already the people who have the same outlook on life as the people in the show, or they like really horrible TV shows (not that there's really quality TV anymore), and if they like it, Jesus or hating gays isn't really going to effect their watching the show anyway. If it does it would be so insignificant that A&E wouldn't even suffer. Here is the net worth of HALF of the ownership of A&E
Hearst

The other half is Disney, no I don't think it would have caused too much distress of they lost some viewers.

So having more government regulation over private businesses is acceptable to you?

Good to know.

Not sure where you saw that I said that.

As I've always stated, A&E was within their cowardly right to can Duck Dynasty.

It was GLAAD who has shown that they were intolerant.

Wait, WHUT???
Where is there any mention of this in any of Beezer's posts? It's actually because of the government that they kicked Phil off (because of laws of what's acceptable on TV) Which is totally bogus in this case anyway, since it wasn't aired on the program but was in a WRITTEN INTERVIEW. So it still has nada to do with the show itself nor the network. I think when I pay my cable next month I am going to have them take out the networks owned by Disney and Hearst Corp. Just because I don't believe in their decision.

And you know this how? You said yourself no laws were violated.


“We are extremely disappointed to have read Phil Robertson’s comments in GQ, which are based on his own personal beliefs and are not reflected in the series Duck Dynasty. His personal views in no way reflect those of A+E Networks, who have always been strong supporters and champions of the LGBT community. The network has placed Phil under hiatus from filming indefinitely.”

Were a forum for discussing conspiracy - I definitely see a conspiracy with Sandy Hook and once again like 911 it fuels a larger agenda. But its not my house... This is why I will never be a moderator. I wouldn't want to try to keep this bunch under control.

Where did you come by that little piece of data?

A&E never mentioned anything of the sort.

And XCalibur never said that "having one specific ideology determining where you can express your ideology is acceptable". You stuffed words in his mouth and then he did the same to you. Shoe on the other foot perhaps?

I agree, but isn't it strange that it's totally off limits? That's a conspiracy in itself..hahahahaa

Not sure. I didn't even know ATS was banning threads about that. I've even participated in a few.

Not so much banning per se, but I think the subject has been deemed LOL as soon as it rears its head.

Springer has mentioned on multiple occasions about this topic...

I just ran a quick search and was able to pull up a thread.
