She Says: What The Duck??
No one, and I mean NO ONE should ever play God and dictate who gets into heaven and who doesn’t. Even hick millionaires.
The idea of the hick millionaire seems like an oxymoron, a paradox, a euphemism, a riddle, or a tall tale. I must admit that I have never seen this show nor have I ever had the desire to watch said show. To me it ranks right up there with Honey Boo Boo and any other mindless TV show that kills IQ points with every second you are exposed. I don’t have time for that. I have better things to do like, oh say, breathing.
One thing we have to remember in this situation, before we get into it, is that any publicity is good publicity no matter how bad it is. People who may have never heard of the show in the first place will probably be tuning in to see what the hub bub is all about. It is why so many celebrities make sex tapes.
Back to the issue at hand.
A&E has not launched an assault on First Amendment rights. This has nothing to do with free speech. In this situation, free speech is just a red herring, a misdirection and a back pedal on the real issue at hand. My advice to A&E is to do exactly what they did, fire Phil Robertson AND they should cancel the show. All that Duck Dynasty represents is about as appealing as a tumor on the butt hole of America. A cancerous growth which, even if moves to a different network, will still spread its plague of idiocy. The fact that, according to some articles, the Duck Dynasty family are the biggest TV stars in America makes me shudder at the thought of the future of TV. They even have chia heads, CHIA HEADS!
If Duck Dynasty is reaching 14 million viewers, AND they have chia heads, you bet they have influence on the public. Why? Because television does that. Phil Robertson knew exactly what he was doing when he made his anti-gay statements. I mean, there are TV shows that make going to a female prison look like a sorority house. We are influenced by the media, over and over and over. There is enough hatred, racism and religious persecution out there without the influence of riotous assholes spreading negativity in a public forum. If Paula Deen can get booted off Food Network for racism, so can Duck Dynasty be booted for blatant anti-gay statements. Even if it is only one man making the comments, you can bet your chia head that the whole lot of them feel the same way.
He Says: All Of You Shut The Duck Up And Get A Life
If it were not for Facebook I wouldn’t even know about this. Now that I know about it I’m pretty sure I still don’t care. Yet I see the need for Unsolicited Advice all around.
Phil Robertson: I understand how being rich isolates a person from reality.
- Did you know that the most hyper-sensitive sissies in the cosmos control the media?
- Did you know that you are on reality TV?
- Did you know that reality TV is marketed to the least intelligent people on the planet?
- Did you know that unintelligent people spend more money when they are angry?
- Did you know that anything you say will be used against you?
Did you know that there are people who have no life, support free speech and believe in tolerance, diversity and multiculturalism . . . and that those people what to shut you up if you dare to think different from them?
You do now.
A&E: Good thing you announced that Phil Robertson doesn’t speak for your network and that his opinions are not your opinions. I remember back in the day when people were smart enough to know that when a person was spouting off his opinions they were only his opinions. Not those of his employer or business partner or customers or third cousin removed. Of course this was before reality TV so maybe people really were smarter back in the day.
Mainstream Media: The government thanks you for distracting the sheep from their enslavement by blowing this out of proportion. If you can get Phil Robertson and Miley Cyrus together that would generate enough controversy for the government to kill people in foreign countries with flying robots for at least two more months without anyone noticing. They could even slide in some more raids on Marijuana businesses in Colorado.
Everyone: Learn to think, get a life and stop taking things out of context. I’ve already seen assorted “interpretations” of Phil’s statement. Here is what it says on the interview page, without editing based on my agenda.
“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.”
Later this happens.
“Everything is blurred on what’s right and what’s wrong,” he says. “Sin becomes fine.”
What, in your mind, is sinful?
“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,” he says. Then he paraphrases Corinthians: “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.”
Yup. He’s got an opinion. And how exactly is his opinion hurting you? He is simply interpreting the Bible. Just like many of you are doing.
Take a moment to think about this. You’re life is so luxurious that the biggest hardship you have to face is that a rich guy from a reality TV show about ducks or something said he likes vagina better than anus.
Ya know what’s really gonna make your life difficult? The day you get fired for expressing an opinion your employer doesn’t’ like. Oh wait. That only happens to “other people”.
Shut the fuck up and have a Merry Christmas.
And spend on your credit cards. The banks appreciate that.
