You can be sure the 1.7++ million Americans who were engaged in a boycott against A&E had something to do with this. Let this be a lesson America that WE outnumber the radical leftist groups who force their intolerance on the nation. This is a defeat not only to GLAAD but all radical leftist groups infesting this nation who are nothing but a small minority tyrants acting like an 800lb gorilla in the room!
This attack on Robertson was an attack on the majority of Americans who are tired of the tyranny coming from the left. We must unite in every fight from now on as we did in support of Robertson. The left cannot handle us on the large scale. From now on when our rights are under attack or some whiny leftist is carrying on about something they are offended by we must go on the attack as we did the last 9 days! For those who are or were against boycotts now you see why and how effective they can be. This proves the arguments against them no longer hold water. The left expects that so we won’t engage in boycotts because they already know how effective they can be!
There is nothing like giving radicals a dose of their own medicine! We surround them, don’t ever forget it!

Phil Robertson, the patriarch of A&E’s Duck Dynasty clan who was suspended from his hit reality series on Dec. 18 following some incendiary comments about gay people, won’t be put on hiatus after all.

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 peopleâ€™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 Philâ€™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 â€œcoarse languageâ€ he used and the mis-interpretation of his core beliefs based only on the article. He also made it clear he would â€œnever incite or encourage hate.â€ We at A+E Networks expressed our disappointment with his statements in the article, and reiterate that they are not views we hold.…more
