    Default The Dynasty is dead

    Sadly, the popular story of the day is being ignored. Why did A&E allow themselves to be bullied by the intolerant group GLAD that thinks it speaks for less than 3% of the American population for the honest and gental opion of a Christian? He wasnt being hateful in what he said. He wasnt be derogatory. He gave his personal opinion and didnt try to throw in any pseudo-science reasoning to make his belief seem factual. So why is A&E risking losing all this money because the leftist group GLAD is intolerant?

    As I was reading the article even before I read it I was thinking of that giant doucheturd asshat Dog the (so-called) Bounty Hunter. He is still on the air.

    As for A&E losing ad revenue............how many members of GLAD does anyone really think watch Duck Dynasty.

    Tempest in a teapot as usual.

    How is this being ignored? It was on every morning news show either yesterday or today. A&E is just protecting their revenue stream, as the old saying goes, "it's just business."

    If the story is popular, how can it also be ignored?

    This seems like a total setup to get the most rated show off the air because it was not centered around liberal views. Did anyone really question what Phil's views were on homosexuality? GQ knew what the response was going to be. I dont watch the show because I deplore "reality" shows, but this seems like its just the lefties throwing their media power around to get rid of something very popular that was Christian based and not liberal.

    Do you think that this show posed such a threat to the liberal establishment that it was targeted for elimination? Is this the first of many such actions...? Or are all the other shows sufficiently liberal? Is The Walking Dead next?

    I actually think the walking dead is more Liberal leaning than you might think. Everyone works. Everyone gets the same things. Everyone gets the same treatment. Rick was "bad" when he had all the power. But then again, the utopion society works well in a small group. But if its not apolitical, its liberal more than conservative.

    But yes, being as the liberals have been using media, hollywood, and TV to promote their agenda for decades now, having a conservative Christian show do so well could lead to the targeting of the show for termination. Only 3% of Americans polled have claimed to be LBGT, but yet it is glorified in just about every new show coming out. From Modern Family, to Ground Floor, to even The Walking Dead have some form of homosexual contents in them. Why is that? Because as long as people see it on TV, then they start to accept it as the norm. Just like 16 and Pregnant was being glamorized to be a teenage single mother.

    I'm pretty sure there is no religious tone to The Walking Dead, so it's probably safe. But Duck Dynasty is one of, or maybe the only show, that still shows appreciate to biblical values. And there are some, many according to ratings, like appearantly like that quality. I know it impressed me that they are not afraid to speak on their beliefs on and off the show.

    Remeber how every Black show like fresh prince and Family matters had that token White person that showed up from time to time. They were usually idiots or mean or both. The shows like Full House and Growing Pains had the token Black person, but they always seemed to be insightful and caring and generous. The TV industry has been catering to PC stereotypes for a long time now.
