Quacked Up!

Duck, Duck, Goose!

I never seen the show for two reasons. One, I am not a fan of reality television. Two, I don't watch cable television.

Okay, the country's most popular reality series Duck Dynasty has a huge fan base. The Robertson family who wacky antics which is covered by the A & E network. The cast is facing some huge controversy.

Phil, the patriarch of the Robertson family is facing some huge flack after he made statements about homosexuality in which he said the following in the men's magazine GQ, "Everything is blurred on what's right and what's wrong… Sin becomes fine. Start with homosexual behavior and just morph out from there. Bestiality, sleeping around with this woman and that woman and that woman and those men."

"Don't be deceived. Neither the adulterers, the idolaters, the male prostitutes, the homosexual offenders, the greedy, the drunkards, the slanderers, the swindlers—they won't inherit the kingdom of God. Don't deceive yourself. It's not right."

Phil added, "It seems like, to me, a vagina—as a man—would be more desirable than a man's anus. That's just me. I'm just thinking: There's more there! She's got more to offer. I mean, come on, dudes! You know what I'm saying? But hey, sin: It's not logical, my man. It's just not logical."

Yeah, that got the A & E to pull the trigger on him. He was suspended indefinitely from Duck Dynasty.

That caused a huge blow to the program. Because without him, the show is pretty much on its death null.

And the way it's going,  A & E may pull the plug on the show entirely.

The Robertsons' owned business makes products for duck hunters, primarily the duck call named Duck Commander.

The Robertson men, brothers Phil, Si, and Phil's sons Jase, Willie, and Jep, are known for their long beards.

The business began in a family shed, where Phil Robertson spent 25 years making duck calls from Louisiana cedar trees.

His son Willie is now the CEO of the company. The family was previously featured on the series Benelli Presents Duck Commander and its spin-off Buck Commander, which still airs on the Outdoor Channel.

The show has broken several ratings records on both A&E and cable television as a whole; the fourth season premiere drew 11.8 million viewers, the most-watched nonfiction cable telecast in history.

Now the racist right is livid over the Duck Dynasty patriarch Phil being suspended from the show after he spoke those controversial statements about the LGBT community.

The racist right is pissed over this. They plan an all out boycott against the A & E network.

Stallmigo Ted Cruz (R-TX), King Hippo, Palin Da Ass, That Guy Who Helped Obama Win and That Guy Who Throws Shit On The Wall, and Loserville are working into overdrive. The overdrive has gotten our attention over at Journal de la Reyna.

I know that Phil is entitled to his opinions. He wasn't on the program expressing his opinion. But since he signed the contract, he represents A & E. The network has an image. They want those who are a part of the network to represent them positively.

Yeah, I think he's gotten a bum rap after this.

Last year, Mike Huckabee, former Republican presidential candidate went to the radio asking for support of fast food company Chick Fil A after its CEO made controversial statements about the LGBT community.

But business is business and you're obligated to doing what the network asks or you're out!

But again, I have no issues with the LGBT community. They want to live their lives in peace and harmony.

They're not hurting me or anyone else. They want to the freedom to marry. Let them.

Anyway, do you believe that Phil's suspension was justified?

Do you think that Phil, Alec Baldwin and Martin Bashir are being blackballed because they're popular celebrities?

Is it fair to say the racist right fighting a battle they'll know they could lose?

Will Duck Dynasty end up on Loserville or The Blaze?
