Paglia: Duck Dynasty uproar
‘utterly fascist, utterly Stalinist’

Daily Caller, by Caroline May

Original Article

Posted By:Desert Fox, 12/20/2013 6:45:03 AM

The suspension of Phil Robertson from A&E’s Duck Dynasty is outrageous in a nation that values freedom, according to social critic and openly gay, dissident feminist Camille Paglia. “I speak with authority here, because I was openly gay before the ‘Stonewall rebellion,’ when it cost you something to be so. And I personally feel as a libertarian that people have the right to free thought and free speech,” Paglia, a professor at the University of the Arts in Philadelphia, said on Laura Ingraham’s radio show Thursday. “In a democratic country, people have the right to be homophobic as well as they have

Isn´t homophobia a fear? Just because we don´t agree with a behavior based on God´s word doesn´t mean we are afraid of it.

It also doesn´t mean we hate the people who practice that behavior.

However, some of them are pretty annoying at times with this forced "embracing" they are pushing for.

Now I should probably read the article.

Sorry, Camille darling. If you were truly anti-fascist and anti-Stalinist you wouldn´t remain nor keep voting Democrat - the epicentre of intolerance. Wake up from that idiocy and we´ll start listening to you again.

Progressives don´t really care about the gays, they just use them as a tool to put the kibash on opposition to their agenda. Its one if their wedges and its used to intimidate non-progs into fear of open expression. It also severs as a very convenient way to distract from all the failures of the Obama admin.

Homophobic is one of the biggest,mis-applied terms the left has came up with to tar people. People that object to the gay lifestyle,have no phobias about it at all. A phobia is an unrealistic fear of something.Nobody is scared of gays,even other gays who may contract deadly diseases.The same with xenophobia,I don´t fear illegals but I do object to them getting American benefits just for showing up with a baby.

Why don´t we have blackaphobia,there may actually be grounds for fear of those people.I guess white flight proves that.

At least some leftist has stepped up to defend free speech,that´s a plus even though she pushes inapplicable terms in the process.

Camille is widely recognized as a very smart elite writer who usually has her opinions on the pulse of society. Although a Democrat, she is respected by many because she is "fair and balanced" to use a cliché. She is correct to say Phil´s language came right from the Bible. Personally, I do not understand homosexuality either, neither do I hate anyone, live and let live. However, the radicals do not want us to live and let live, they want us to give up any thought and opinions that do not line up with GLADD and the Democrat party. As a Christian, my Bible tells me to love everyone, but it also condemns homosexuality AND adultery equally.

Good for Camille. She´s always been a rational person, unlike her compatriots in liberalism.

...the graduates of the Ivy League with their A, A, A+ grades are complete cultural illiterates, etc. is because they are not being educated in any way to give respect to opposing view points.”

Amen, girl. They call us intolerant but cannot see the irony in their calls to silence those who disagree.

There are two liberals I tend to side with -- Nat Henthoff and Camille Paglia. I don´t always agree with them, but I know that they aren´t so open minded that their brains have fallen out. They seem to give some thought to their positions.

Once again, Camille is pretty close to the mark.

Collectivism is not only a method of resource distribution but also a system of group-think.

The Gay movement mimics the Black movement in that it pushes a cartoonish and false narrative about who, historically, victimized whom.

Once again, the word "equality" has been tortured into meaning special privilege,untouchability and reparations paid to people who never were victims by people who never were perpetrators.

Phil´s position closely mirrors that of a lot of Christians~love the sinner; hate the sin. This is not intolerance, homophobia, or racism, etc.; and this is why you´ll find Christians establishing clinics to help AIDS victims, retreats for post-abortive women, shelters for drug addicts, etc. This is not tolerance of sin; it is loving treatment for the brother or sister in Christ in hope that they can turn from sin and accept God´s grace and forgiveness. As Phil said, we are all sinners; and there are no "degrees" of sin.

I, too, appreciate Camile Paglia as a writer, but the statement:´...I speak with authority here, because I was openly gay before the ´Stonewall rebellion´ when it cost you something to be so...´ I find odd. It reflects that being ´gay´ somehow gives one a greater insight into the human/social condition or demands more respect from society and I don´t see how that is so.

How can any right thinking liberal, progressive statist believe repressing free speech is right?

The hypocrisy of these people is beyond incredible. They are only for it until they are against it.

The left is unraveling before our eyes. God is in control and is causing this implosion. As strong believers in one, true God, we need to stay strong and use the opportunity to come alongside those who are confused and questioning right and wrong.

For a principles, value based believer this is our time. Use it wisely. Maybe the end times are not far away.

Robertson may be many things to many people, but ´phobic´ i.e. consumed by an irrational fear, is not one of them.

Paglia often expresses a libertarian viewpoint but she still runs with the crowd in regarding the Stonewall Rebellion as some sort of Biblical event. It was handbags at 20 paces in an already-very-gay city. 99.999% of the world didn´t know and didn´t care then and they don´t care now. The constant, desperate, pitiful attempts by LGBTXYZ types to portray themselves as the new Lost Tribe are as tiresome as they are misguided.

Homophobic and all the phobics the left tags people with are over used.
I don´t express a ´phobia´ where gays are concerned. I could care less about their lifestyle.
It just seems that it´s the gay left that have the phobia about any opposition to their ´life´s choosing´. Like dogs visiting their own vomit. The whole ´movement´ is tiring to listen to when a straight society could care less.
The gay left better realize they are flecks of fleas on a very big dog and just get a grip and live life.
If the gays want to address homophobia why aren´t they attacking the Muslims who openly persecute them in the name of religion? There´s a cause worse than this Robertson blow up.

I generally like Camille´s commentary but not supporting a certain "sexual lifestyle" doesn´t make one a phobic.

Camille - why don´t you try and explain why your sexuality is normal and why aren´t more people homosexual? You´re kind are less than 2% (someone´s post yesterday citing latest US Census data) of this country´s population.

If you believe in the God of the Bible it isn´t hard to understand the gay life choice. For everything God set up for His mankind to keep them from sin, the Devil has offered a substitute to man to pull them into sin. God gave sex to married couples for pleasure as well as procreation. The family unit was basic and foundational for men. Satan has devised all matter of deviant counterfeits to keep men from being in God´s will for them. Good and evil indeed. God gives His children free choice and Satan happily supplies alternatives.

Just as 0bamacare is not about health care but about socio-political dominance of left wing ideology, so also the gay agenda is not about dignity and equality. It has always been about the destruction of main stream culture and the imposition of a fringe element values and lifestyle.
Every single human culture and religious tradition in known history has clearly held homosexuality to be abnormal and outside the main stream. From that perspective, so called homophobia is a far more justified position (than the) support of homosexuality as a socially accepted lifestyle. But, as Paglia says both have a right to hold their views freely and safely in our system.

An entire Islamic supremacist, warring, terrorizing, medieval series of NATIONS, want to kill all gays, all Christians, all Jews, and our heavily Jewish and gay media ignore this world massive hate, and only pick on one Christian peace loving family man, for a single remark.

I, for one, am waiting to see how pResident Obama, after consulting with Valerie Jarrett, responds and doesn´t "waste" this crisis. Will he go on TV and say A&E "acted stupidly"?

It is apparent without saying, that Phil was talking directly to Obama, among others, when he described male homosexuality in easily understandable and basically unmistakable terms.

Anyone want to place a bet on how ValJar will council The Won to handle this hot potato?

Phil Robertson, like others down through the ages, spoke the truth and said nothing for which he should have to apologize. Free agency is granted to all, but ignore His message at your peril.

Paglia is, as usual, right and tells us why she is right. In today´s society we are led to believe that if a person finds offense with what one has said, it is deemed "hateful", no matter how benign the words may be. The intent, situation, and logic behind the words do not matter anymore. If one doesn´t agree with what is said or is not bright enough to understand the circumstance the words were spoken, it is labeled as "hate" because its far easier to shut a person up, than have to engage in debate, especially when your only substantive argument is that you were "offended".

This is another direct assault on Christians. Robertson was only stating what the Bible says about homosexual behavior. And guess what? It says the same thing about heterosexual behavior outside of (traditional) marriage. All have sinned and come short of the glory of God. But I guess that is just a bridge too far for the thought police.

If the RIGHT is Fascist.......why is it CONSERVATIVES are fighting for less government and the LEFT is fighting for exactly what HITLER wanted. Totalitarian government takeover control of everything and everyone? Isn´t that exactly what Hitler wanted and got? The LEFT will deny this obvious fact...but the facts are that Hitler took everyone´s guns.......So is the WH Administration doing the exact same thing. Hitler wanted and took over government ...and tried for World control. So is WH Administration. Yet, Tea Party is accused of being HITLER ...Hitler NEVER wanted LESS GOVERNMENT. NEVER. Hitler and Obama and the Wh Admin are exactly the same...and the WH admin is doing the very same thing Hitler did. So how is it they call TEA PARTY Fascists? Fascists want total GOV CONTROL. How is this supposedly intelligent left Commies don´t get this? I question their intellect and sanity.

Kudos to Camille, though she is gay her thinking is straight. I think the crux of the problem is that although Phil made it clear Christianity considers homosexual behavior a sin, many on the left ignored the fact that Phil carefully explained that God not him (nor any man) makes the decision about who is or is not a sinner implying the fact that Christianity separates the sin and the sinner, holding that all sinners can be redeemed of their sins . . . which is kind of the whole point of Christianity. The Pope would agree. The left jumped at the chance to exploit (some of) the words of a popular conservative figure as condemning all homosexuals to hell. So what else is new?

Blacks, Hispanics,illegals, homosexuals.....that is the rigid agenda of the left-wing liars, the cabal of Reids, Pelosis, Obamas, Bidens, Sharptons, Schumers, Jacksons, and the New York elite and Hollywood movie making clowns....plus the corrupt media that rules television and newspapers.

Let me say it again...Blacks, Hispanics,illegals, homosexuals.....we have our Jesus, our Santa Clause, and our Churches. They have blacks, hispanics,illegals, and homosexuals.

We cant say one bad word about blacks, hispanics,illegals, or homosexuals.

But they can disparage us, our savior, our heroes, every damn day of their stinking lives! Just this week they started putting up 55 Satan billboards in and around Sacramento, California praising Satan and Satanists. Just like they try to recruit our children into homosexuality, they now want them to worship Satan at Christmas!!! I couldnt make this sh** up! Yet if you criticize deviance,or the act of sodomy so often performed in the bedrooms of homosexual men,which often leads to deathly AIDS, they immediately surround you and chastize you and want to cast you out!

#17 What Ms. Paglia is speaking about is that younger gays take gay rights (and much else) for granted; they never had to fight for their rights.

Older gays such as Ms. Paglia had to fight for basic rights, such as the right to assemble with harassment; they didn´t have the luxury of getting prissy over speech codes, and shouting down and threatening everyone who has opposing viewpoints, as today´s gay activists do ad nauseam.

Camile certainly has one thing right: many are, indeed, "complete cultural illiterates, etc. is because they are not being educated in any way to give respect to opposing view points." “I think that this intolerance by gay activists toward the full spectrum of human beliefs is a sign of immaturity, juvenility,” Paglia said. For over two hundred years, ten generations, children were raised to have the civility and good sense to listen to other viewpoints, and the intelligence to make logical arguments to promote their own beliefs, whether or not they persuade anyone.

When was the last time any LGBT speaker attempted to persuade with facts and logic?

Those with a militant pro-pervert agenda can not allow a back-and-forth discussion about the prevalence or appropriateness of their "lifestyle choice." They want to have absolutely no knowledge of how small their minority is, so they suppress all speech that has any component that may be factually neutral or critical of their viewpoint so they can pretend there is no "legitimate" dissent or honest objection to their behavior.

No gay person ever wants to hear the words "a biologically non-viable" sexual activity, yet the whole world understands what would have to result if everyone became homosexuals...it would end our species.

When someone with whom I may sometimes disagree says something profoundly insightful, I respect that. I don´t denigrate the person and their comment just because they have said other things that I don´t like or that I may find inconsistent.

I often enjoy Camille Paglia´s insight. I don´t care if she uses the word "homophobic." I don´t care if she votes dem. I don´t care if she´s an atheist at the moment. I like the way she thinks on her own and ably defends her viewpoint. How refreshing.

Report: Hillary Clinton
Accused GOP Staffers of
Colluding with ´Extremists´

Breitbart´s Big Government, by Warner Todd Huston    Original Article
Posted By: Desert Fox- 4/19/2014 7:46:15 PM     Post Reply
Just ahead of a possible Hillary run for the presidency, the Clinton Library released a new load of documents from President Bill Clinton’s years in the White House. One of those documents attempts to explain Hillary´s "vast right-wing conspiracy" claim in which the Clinton administration accused Republican staffers of colluding with "extremists" on the Internet to hurt the Clintons. On January 27, 1998, Hillary Clinton appeared on NBC´s Today Show. During her interview with Matt Lauer, she claimed that a "vast right-wing conspiracy" had been trying to destroy her husband "since the day he announced for president." That interview drew

What do Herman Cain, Sarah Palin, Ted Cruz, Tim Scott, Michele Bachmann, Condoleezza Rice, Allen West, Dr. Ben Carson, and TW Shannon all have in common? Calm down, Joseph. I see your hand, but I want someone else to answer for a change. No takers? Okay, Joseph. You are correct. They are hated by liberals and Democrats. Tell us why? Correct again, Joseph. They are women and minorities who honor God, family, and country. They are self-reliant, extremely successful and do not view themselves as victims. Liberals and Democrats will not tolerate such liberated independent thinking by women and minorities. It threatens the

When British photojournalist Charles Ommanney traveled through six states to photograph American gun owners, he found something he did not expect: they don´t fit the stereotypes. According to PolicyMic.com, Ommanney was sent to photograph American gun owners for the German magazine Stern. In so doing, he discovered "people who are often far from the stereotypical vision of the American ´gun-nut.´" He found a teenager named Elizabeth, who posed with a Walther handgun "in front of a floral wallpaper backdrop." He found entire families--mother, father, daughter, son--who posed with their firearms of choice. Ommanney also found one woman with a pump shotgun for home

Documents: Bill Clinton Feared
Hillarycare Would Cause People

As the nation awaits Hillary Clinton´s decision of whether or not she will run for president in 2016, a cache of 7,500 pages of newly released documents from Bill Clinton´s years in the White House show some familiar political themes. One revelation is that Bill Clinton worried that a massive new healthcare scheme would cause Americans to lose their insurance. In 1993, the President allowed his wife, first lady Hillary Clinton, to become the face of an Obamacare-like takeover of the nation´s healthcare system. The plan was sarcastically dubbed Hillarycare. But as these internal documents show, in what is now a

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

WASHINGTON AND NEW YORK - In September 2001, as the U.S. reeled from the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, Vladimir Putin supported Washington´s imminent invasion of Afghanistan in ways that would have been inconceivable during the Cold War. He agreed that U.S. planes carrying humanitarian aid could fly through Russian air space. He said the U.S. military could use airbases in former Soviet republics in Central Asia. And he ordered his generals to brief their U.S. counterparts on their own ill-fated 1980s occupation of Afghanistan. During Putin´s visit to President George W. Bush´s Texas ranch two

A new photo of a mysterious flying object over Kansas has been revealed. It appears to be the same aircraft as one that was snapped soaring over Texas last month. The exact identify of the aircraft remains a mystery, but rumours abound that it could be a secret jet. ´The photo is grainy because it was taken with a hand-held maxed-out 400mm telephoto lens through a cloud layer and then it was severely cropped to bring it up even close,´ says Jeff Templin, who took the photo on 16 April. ´There is no way to know the altitude and no way to judge its

Could the 2016 presidential election turn into a contest between a Bush and a Clinton? Political debate in America last week revolved around whether or not Jeb Bush, Florida´s former governor who is son or brother to two former US presidents – both named George – would jump into the 2016 battle for the Republican presidential nomination. For a nation that fought a war for independence from the hereditary power of the British Crown, in the person of another fellow named George, the concept of nominating a third Bush to run for the White House against a second Clinton (the former

"I´m over here!" shouts Kate Humble, and she of Springwatch and Lambing Live gambols towards me, closing the gate on a field of anxious goats and their Disney-cute babies. She´s carrying a bucket. "I was just about to muck out," she announces, and I´m reminded this is a working farm in the Wye Valley and in no way a TV set. The photographer has already done his work and gone. Apparently Humble had no idea he was coming. It is hard to think of another TV person on the planet for whom an impromptu photoshoot while wearing a well-loved fleece and

Alert shoppers are accustomed to watching food prices go up and down. But a string of forces—from droughts to diseases—is raising the cost of a trip to the grocery store at a rapid clip. And it looks like it will be a while before the price pressure eases. Some of that pressure is coming from California—the source of roughly half the nation´s fruits and vegetables—where a long-running drought is forcing farmers and ranchers to cut production. After the driest year on record, large sections of farmland are expected to lay fallow this year as the Golden State copes with an ongoing water

Senator urges hearing

Sen. Dean Heller (R-Nev.) on Friday called for a Senate hearing into the dispute between Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy and the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) over cattle grazing. Heller described as "patriots" the people who came armed to Bundy’s ranch after the BLM began to seize his cattle for refusing to pay grazing fees and fines that now total more than $1 million. Heller debated the ranch standoff on a Nevada television station with Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.), who has called the armed Bundy supporters “domestic terrorists.” "What senator Reid may call domestic terrorists, I call patriots," Heller said.

If expanding the guest list to include Michelle Obama at graduation for high school students in the Kansas capital city means fewer seats for friends and family, some students and their parents would prefer the first lady not attend. A furor over what the Topeka school district considers an honor has erupted after plans were announced for Obama to address a combined graduation ceremony for five area high schools next month an 8,000-seat arena. For some, it was the prospect of a tight limit on the number of seats allotted to each graduate. For others, it was the notion that Obama´s speech,

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

In a speech earlier this week, Lisa O. Monaco, President Barack Obama’s assistant for homeland security and counterterrorism, insisted that American parents must be vigilant because their “confrontational” children could be on the verge of becoming terrorists. Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings. Interestingly, the Harvard grad failed to mention the religion or the motive of brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

If the Rev. John DeBonville could preach a sermon to lift the souls of churchgoers across America, his message would be simple: Stop dressing so tacky for church. DeBonville has heard about the “come as you are” approach to dressing down for Sunday service, but he says the Sabbath is getting too sloppy. When he scans the pews of churches, DeBonville sees rows of people dressed in their Sunday worst. They saunter into church in baggy shorts, flip-flop sandals, tennis shoes and grubby T-shirts. Some even slide into the pews carrying coffee in plastic foam containers as if they’re going to Starbucks. “It’s like

The Clintons had a busy night of celebrations after Chelsea announced she and husband Marc Mezvinsky are expecting a baby. Bill joined “House of Cards” star Kevin Spacey at the Revlon Rainforest Fund Benefit Concert at Carnegie Hall Thursday, joking of Spacey’s Machiavellian character, “When I was president people accused me of murder all the time, made a show of investigating. Spacey’s president for 15 minutes and he gets away with murder.” Spacey, who sang during the event with Sting, Stephen Stills and James Taylor, also showed off his Johnny Carson impression, taking a swipe at the coverage of Flight

President Obama asserts that 8 million people have signed up for Obamacare, as though that were something to be proud of. In fact, Obamacare has always been a fiasco from a fiscal perspective–a black hole of subsidies and expanded Medicaid, with largely fictitious mechanisms in place to pay for it. As the number of subsidized participants grows, the disaster gets worse. Charles Blahous explains: Our national discussion…is missing the truly significant story here; what is unfolding before our eyes is a colossal fiscal disaster, poised to haunt legislators and taxpayers for decades to come. It is quite possible that the ACA is

Gospel story of Jesus’ resurrection a

“On the third day, he rose again.” That line, from the Nicene Creed, is a foundational statement of Christian belief. It declares that three days after Jesus died on the cross, he was resurrected, a glimmer of the eternal life promised to believers. It’s the heart of the Easter story in seven little words. But how that statement is interpreted is the source of some of the deepest rifts in Christianity — and a stumbling block for some Christians, and more than a few skeptics. Did Jesus literally come back from the dead in a bodily resurrection, as many traditionalist

(You always hear and read of a “fiasco,” a “defeat” a “disaster” at the Bay of Pigs, 53 years ago this week. But you rarely hear about the cause. Here it is.) "They fought like tigers," writes the CIA officer who helped train the Cubans who splashed ashore at the Bay of Pigs 53 years ago this week. "But their fight was doomed before the first man hit the beach." That CIA man, Grayston Lynch, knew something about fighting – and about long odds. He carried scars from Omaha Beach, The Battle of the Bulge and Korea´s Heartbreak Ridge. But

It’s time for Western states to take control of federal lands within their borders, lawmakers and county commissioners from Western states said at Utah’s Capitol on Friday. More than 50 political leaders from nine states convened for the first time to talk about their joint goal: wresting control of oil-, timber -and mineral-rich lands away from the feds. "It’s simply time," said Rep. Ken Ivory, R-West Jordan, who organized the Legislative Summit on the Transfer for Public Lands along with Montana state Sen. Jennifer Fielder. "The urgency is now."
