Quacker Back On A & E!

Duck Dynasty will be on this season.

Despite the huge outcry from the LGBT community against Duck Dynasty star Phil Robertson, A&E decided to reinstate the controversial star back on the program.

The racist right turned out in droves to petition A&E's decision to suspend the star after he made some comments about gays and the Black community.

Now that seems to have gotten the attention of the junk food media Now the demands were heard and the controversy will now settle down. Could you imagine this was a huge story?

What happen was the GQ Magazine interview in which the outspoken star said some choice words about gays being compared to terrorism. Then of course that flack went to the head of A&E and they decided to put the star on leave.

The Robertson family were threatening to leave if they didn't reinstate the patriarch of the show. 

Now the controversy brought in a known asshole who continues to hog the limelight. She is a former governor of Alaska who was calling for the head of Martin Bashir on Obama News after he compared her to a slave who was defecated by his master.

Nowadays we gotten so much into the lives of celebrities. Even a redneck millionaire isn't spared from the outlandish behavior. Think about the Kardashians, Miley Cyrus, Justin Bieber, Kanye West, and every other angle of reality television and pop culture. They actually get a pass for some of the ignorance that comes out of their mouths.

Why not Phil?

Yeah, he's a stupid ass bigot. So what?

He's stupid ass money maker. He continues to motivate sales of products with his likeness and it was foretold that merchandise from the show sold out fast.

A&E issued a statement:

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.

But Duck Dynasty is not a show about one man's views. It resonates with a large audience because it is a show about family… a family that America has come to love. As you might have seen in many episodes, they come together to reflect and pray for unity, tolerance and forgiveness. These are three values that we at A&E Networks also feel strongly about.

So after discussions with the Robertson family, as well as consulting with numerous advocacy groups, A&E has decided to resume filming Duck Dynasty later this spring with the entire Robertson family.

We will also use this moment to launch a national public service campaign (PSA) promoting unity, tolerance and acceptance among all people, a message that supports our core values as a company, and the values found in Duck Dynasty. These PSAs will air across our entire portfolio.

Newsbusters Noel Shepard claims the LEFT is exploding over this!

I bet. After all, the RIGHT exploded when Bill Maher took aim at the Catholic church.

The RIGHT exploded when a little child on YouTube said a prayer for President Barack Obama.

The RIGHT exploded when the president shook hands with Raul Castro at the Nelson Mandela funeral.

Okay, so when will the next explosion to happen in the junk food media?

Do we have to blame the Muslims, the Blacks or just another White guy?

In closing, this is a warning shot to the cast. The issue will probably be discussed on the future episodes and the we can only hope that Phil Robertson will not drive another problem into the mainstream again!

Because the eyes are watching. It's just not those faithful viewers.
