Didn´t Want to Diss Gay Employees
TMZ.com, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 12/21/2013 9:08:53 AM

Phil Robertson disrespected gay employees at A&E ... and THAT´S why he was sacked from "Duck Dynasty" ... sources connected with the network tell TMZ. We´re told A&E CEO Nancy Dubuc felt she could not in good conscience ask gay employees to kill themselves for a show when he disrespected them by calling them sinners. Our sources say ... gay employees involved in the production -- and there are a number of them -- were outraged by Phil´s comments to GQ and wanted Dubuc to give him the ax. We´re told Dubuc felt this way ... If Phil had made

Comments:
Mark Levin is right. We are being ruled by tyranny of the minority. What about dissing Christian employees or Christian viewers. This is the danger of political correctness, it shuts down the speech of those who don´t share your same views, on anything. I guess it´s more important to bow down to those few gays on your staff rather than make millions of dollars on a successful franchise and showing what millions of other people want to see.

A&E knew about Phil Robertson´s views on homosexuality. It is simply now confecting its outrage to cover up for the fact that it has been exposed.

´Disrespected´ is a ´victim´ word and should be stricken from the English language in all its forms. A really big problem we have today is people being so thin-skinned. People need to get over themselves!

Ain´t that a convenient story...Now CEO Nancy can explain to those who she claims were disrespected that, due to her actions, the DD show will be canceled and the "disrespected gay employees" will be laid off.
That should fix it.

So, paraphrasing St Paul´s words in Leviticus is to be considered dissing gays and grounds for termination?
I am totally out of tolerance for the gay community.

Talk about biting the hand that feeds you. All those oh-so-very-offended and sniveling gays who work on Duck Dynasty will soon be out of a job. Somehow that seems fair.

A&E including all their employees need the Robertsons way more than the Robertsons need them...that is the very large miscalculation here. I, for one, would like to see the Duck Dynasty family tell A&E to pound sand.

Harvey Levin of TMZ on Greta last night said that interview was done three months ago with A&E´s knowledge and approval. Go figure!

So let me see if I understand this. Gays do not wish to be discriminated against but are perfectly comfortable with discriminating against others.

Got it. Gays are not against discrimination; they want to be the ones doing the discriminating.

SO in order to keep from having to work with Robertson, they demanded he be fired thus eliminating their top show and probably their job. Isn´t this just like the Twinkie employees who struck, killed the company and then lost their jobs. Twinkies... Heh.

Don´t buy "Duck Dynasty" items such as t-shirts, calendars, mugs, etc. When you do, you are paying A&E, not the stars of DD.

If you want to show your support for Duck Dynasty, buy directly from the DD family at:

I´ve seen this before and heard it before. And I´ll say here what these Liberals hate hearing: We are ALL sinners in the eyes of God.

All of us. Genocidal Murderers and schoolkids who steal pencils. There is no difference in God´s Eyes.

All of us. We fall short of God´s glory and are unworthy of his presence. Those who are in Christ, living or dead by our definitions are in God´s presence and are in Heaven, which is all that is within His presence. Those who are not in His presence are in Hell, which is the lack of God, as He will not force us to be with Him.

All of us. Only Christ is the bridge that allows us to return to God.

What Phil said made perfect sense and was not in the least, demeaning or judgmental. He was simply stating the Truth. If we are to be children of God, we, like good children, should seek to emulate Christ and avoid things forbidden, even if we want those forbidden things very much. Animals do whatever they desire - Man was given different rules.

Nancy has a problem, Nancy doesn´t understand Christians. Phil never called them sinners, GOD called them sinners. The Bible is explicit, Phil did nothing more then paraphrase the scripture. If Nancy or any homo has a problem with the Bible then their beef is with GOD.

If, on the other hand, they don´t believe in the inerrancy of scripture or don´t believe in the Bible or GOD, again just because they don´t believe doesn´t mean it´s not true.

They are betting their eternal souls on that question.

I guess eventually the gays will find out if homosexuality is a sin against God or not. If it is, I guess it will be too late to do anything about it.

If it is, and I don´t really know, I wonder if it´s one of them thar mortal sins?

I don´t recall the Duck Dynasty clan refusing to continue the show with gay production staff. So, the real intolerance rears its ugly head in the way-to-sensitive, pampered pony, whinny production staff members who may be laid off if the Duck Dynasty show is canned. It is to laugh.

I was a Christian mentor in the Eastham Unit in Lovelady, Texas for almost 15 years. Being dissed or disrespected real or imagined (mostly imagined) could get you severely beaten or even killed. These gay employees are really no different than those felons except Phil didn´t have to worry about being attacked. I´m so sick of "my feelings were hurt", "it´s not fair", "I´ve been disrespected", "you´re a racist", "what was said made me feel uncomfortable"! Good grief all Phil said is what a lot of us wondered all along. Like Billy Graham Phil said that the Bible calls homosexuality a sin. Phil never said anyone in particular was a sinner.

It´s that they thought they were in control. They thought they could get Robinson fired yet keep the show because they thought they were the most important people on the show. As always they are a legend in their own mind ... just because they are loud and obnoxious. They are slow to learn that you yank on the tail of a tiger you get bit.

I can´t tell from the article if it was homosexual A&E employees who demanded Robertson be fired, or GLAAD activists, or if this was all Nancy Lubuc´s bright idea. I think the first possibility is the LEAST likely. As others have pointed out, this show has been on the air for several years, with no apparent conflict for the staffers, who can´t be only NOW discovering what Christianity says about homosexuality.

The activists wouldn´t care, though - it´s always a good time to attack Christians. As for Lubuc initiating this and then hiding behind her "gay employees", I can believe that too. Many times (especially in Britain) management cracks down on Christian symbols or popular traditions with the excuse that it MIGHT "offend Muslims", and it turns out that no Muslims even complained or were even concerned about the issue. It was just a pre-emptive surrender by people who are over-eager to show off how sensitive and inclusive they are. (And I suspect, secretly harbor their OWN resentments of Christianity, and are happy to use other people as proxies to carry on their vendetta.)

Grow up. Quit whining. Get out of our faces. Quit demanding special treatments and laws. Live your lives as you see fit, but quietly. Respect the rest of us and let us live our lives as we see fit.

They should challenge the Muslims who persecute and even execute homosexuals. Take up your campaign of wanting respect with that ´religious´ group. This is all noise and phony clap trap from a pack of little fleas on a mighty big dog.

So, what she is saying is that homosexual employees of the show wanted Phil Robertson to shut up about his beliefs, because they wanted their beliefs to prevail over his?

Why not relocate those offended employees so they wouldn´t feel like they were killing themselves for someone and something with which they disagreed?

Sadly, they may not realize until Judgment Day that Phil Robertson was not disrespecting them - rather he is showing the utmost respect and love by telling the truth.

Tedious and borderline schizophrenic.

If they believe in the God of Abraham they know sodomy is a sin. If they don´t believe in God, then calling it a sin has no meaning.

Yet to hear them protest, you´d think someone ran them over repeatedly with an SUV or something.

The thing is i cannot understand why the homosexual community seem upset that Mr. Robertson spoke of two body parts. God created our bodies, and should someone speak of them in a clinical way, then why should the gay lobby suggest that Phil is using "coarse language"? Aren´t early education sex courses in our schools telling our young children that they should properly name their body parts??? (little sarcasm here on my part)

The gay community should not be upset that Phil Robertson was, essentially, comparing an homosexual to a heterosexual act. It is what it is, and they should analyze why that information being in a public discourse upsets them (and I am not being sarcastic here).

The legal issues here need some focusing.

This is not a First Amendment issue, because Governmental action is not involved.

Unless there are provisions in an employment contract to be construed, every employer should have (and absent anti-freedom of choice, "civil rights" legislation would continue to have) the full and express right to fire any "at will" employee that they want to fire -- for any reason whatsoever, and/or for no reason at all.

And by the same token, the Duck Team should continue to have (and apparently, does contractually have) the full right to take their top-rated show to any network (but possibly change the name, somewhat, if they don´t own the trademark, "Duck Dynasty"). [[As an experienced trademark lawyer, if they do so and A& E files an improvident lawsuit, I will volunteer to defend them, gratis]].

Why would they want to continue to make money for A&E, with whom they do not agree?

And, obviously, viewers can "vote" on what they like or don´t like -- with their ratings.

I´ve had the same thought as #36. The feminists also like to throw proper terms around (the Monologues) and that´s considered okay so why would this be objectionable. Perhaps opening the window about what actually goes on will clue in people who didn´t know. Sort of like the rude awakening some people had when confronted with details of what actually happens in abortions.

I´ve used those same scriptures with a couple of drunkards, and they never complained of being offended.

Notice how gays constantly need to be affirmed by the straight world that what they practice is OK. To me that shows they at some level are unsure of their lifestyle. If they truly believed the gay lifestyle was OK, they would need to be constantly reassured of it.

There are many aspects of homosexuality that are not readily understood – either by the homosexual or greater communities. One reason is that, in polite circles – and given the possibility of misunderstanding and personal offence – homosexuality is not a topic of any substantial frequency.

One aspect of such misunderstanding is a reasonable theory as to why homosexuals display certain, distinctive, and albeit rather uniform, manners of speech and physical gestures – which some others find to be sat least a bit unusual.

If one were to ask a Gay person for the reason(s) why, the likely answer would be something like: “This is the natural way that I have been created to speak and/or act…” – as though somehow speech and gestures were not learned behavior.
One explanation for the behavior of this small part of the population is that it is thereby that one of the putative “partners” is able, relatively safely, to invite homosexual advance.

And, the reason why this indication is necessary would be to prevent violence from an otherwise ill-timed, and mis-intentioned, communication towards someone who would find a homosexual proposal to constitute grounds for violence – [[somewhat similar to the utility of a lioness “signaling” that she is genuinely “a-lioness-in-heat” (i.e., receptive), and watch out if she is something else]].

The prevalence and uniformity of this self-preservation, biological “signaling” behavior -- as evolutionarily copied from the mammalian world -- itself demonstrates that there is a very large part of greater-community males who would find a homosexual advance to be, at the very least, “unwanted”. And a reasonable explanation for this primal emotion is that a very large part of the male population does in fact find the homosexual act to be disgusting – and, even sufficiently so as to provoke violence.

(Continued)


Finally, and given the necessary conclusion that there is a depth of revulsion held by seemingly the vast majority of males in the society, the Gay community (and its spokesman/apologist, Piers “America’s Got Talent” Morgan) may want to acknowledge the high degree of toleration of this libertarian society. And, if they want to go a bit further in the condor of this self-assessment exercise, Piers, the erstwhile Talent Judge, together with his small minority following might also chose to acknowledge that it is not the existence of Robertson’s views on biology and religion that is unusual – but rather the fact that he has said what many other, more-polite persons are thinking.

Note to Ms Dubuc at A&E, they are sinners! Not according to Phil Robertson, but according to the God he believes in and follows. If people have a problem with that or it hurts their itty bitty feelings then they need to take it up with God, not take it out on Phil.

So what is the big deal? What about the feelings of the beastiality people?

Truth is it is about a bunch of folks who are power seeking to impose their desires upon others. Gay unions would have made for some parity without threatening the Defense of Marriage act and years old hetro marriage traditions where a father or family would not let go of a daughter without some legal assurance of her well being.

The GLAAD power movement wants what they want without thought to what comes next. They are not necessarily linked to NAMBLA (whom the press never mentions anymore) but will their rights give rights to NAMBLA? The dam opened when it should not have been?

The GLAAD people do not want equal rights, they want the power to force people to think what they wish them to think--that gs and hetro marriages are the same and that punishment will come to those who might wish to think or even say otherwise.

I wouldn´t go after gays with a hood on and actually like what they add to historical evolution of our civilization and current society but "No one likes to be told what to do and even more so what to think"

The attack on the quoting of the Bible is ominously oppressive and it needs to end here for the sake of all religious freedom IMO.

So, it took them four days to come up with this lame brained, totally unbelievable excuse? Could there be any doubt, what-so-ever, at any time, ever, what the DD people think and believe? How dim does the network exec have to be? It´s just not possible they could not have known this belief after all these shows. But, once is it spoken out loud- suddenly A&E employees are offended?

That´s so stupid it´s hilarious!

Pointing out sinful behavior is now objectionable. The sinner has been ´disrespected´, and pointing out sin must be silenced. Society becomes more corrupted. Ultimately, God will judge.

The SPLC’s Attack on Rush
Limbaugh, David Horowitz, and Me
PJ Media, by Ron Radosh    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 4/22/2014 10:01:12 PM     Post Reply
The column I wrote last week, it turns out, has created somewhat of a storm. This is due to one thing only: Rush Limbaugh read it aloud on his radio program. (Start reading in the middle from where it says “BREAK TRANSCRIPT.”) That one decision by Rush led all of our mutual enemies to go viral, sending numerous Tweets and Facebook posts attacking Rush and me for supposedly arguing that the anti-Semitic neo-Nazi Glenn Miller acted because of Max Blumenthal. Of course, as I wrote last week in an addendum, this was not the point I was making. I wrote the following, and repeat it once again:

Iran Refuses to Pull Terrorist
Washington Free Beacon, by Adam Kredo    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 4/22/2014 9:55:46 PM     Post Reply
Iran is insisting that the United States accept its decision to appoint a former terrorist as it representative to the United Nations, which held a closed-door meeting on Tuesday to address Tehran’s concerns over the matter. President Barack Obama signed into law last week a widely supported bill preventing countries from appointing terrorists as their U.N. ambassadors. The bill came in response to Iran’s selection of Hamid Aboutalebi as its next envoy to the United Nations. The pick drew outrage on Capitol Hill and elsewhere after Aboutalibi was identified as having played a key role in the 1979 Iranian hostage crisis,

Politico: Dr. Ben Carson´s Talent

At Politico Magazine, writer and physician James Hamblin tried to answer the question "Who is Dr. Ben Carson?" After describing how he became a "darling of the right-wing media" after calling out President Obama at a prayer breakfast, Hamblin tried to explain how he speaks in "over the top" language about America in decline. But Hamblin really let loose when he insisted that despite Dr. Carson´s surgical talent, his opposition to Obamacare is based on "sentiment," not a "rational pespective. His talent "does not imply an elevated or even rational perspective on health-care policy." Carson speaks from a unique position of stature

Obama’s Malaysia Trip
Includes Visit to a Mosque

When President Obama becomes the first U.S. president to visit Malaysia in almost half a century, he will visit a prominent mosque on Sunday – but not a church, in a country where relations between the Muslim establishment and minority Christians have not always been smooth. Also, Obama’s itinerary includes a meeting with “Malaysian civil society leaders,” but according to the White House he will not meet with Anwar Ibrahim, the veteran opposition leader who since the late 1990s has been embroiled in a legal battle with the government widely viewed as a politically motivated harassment campaign.

On Monday, The Washington Post announced it had hired Philip Bump, a journalist currently at Atlantic magazine’s The Wire, to cover politics for their daily blog The Fix. The move set off a chain of congratulations from across the political press corps. But lost in the media love fest was Bump’s partisan past — a history left unspoken in either the Post’s official announcement or any of the Twitter applause. Not only does Bump’s archive at The Wire betray a palpable bias in favor of progressivism; his career as a journalist began when he headed a vicious pro-labor blog which published the names and addresses of opponents later targeted by

Secretary of State John Kerry called Earth Day today “proof that the steadfast determination of millions is powerful enough to change the course of history.” “I still remember participating in the very first Earth Day back in 1970,” Kerry said in a statement this afternoon. “It helped to unleash a wave of grassroots activism that ultimately led to the creation of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and landmark laws like the Clean Air Act and the Clean Water Act. This Earth Day we need to consider new ways to unleash a new wave of activism to tackle today’s long list

When she was secretary of state, Hillary Clinton instituted a Quadrennial Diplomacy and Development Review. The first one was completed in December 2010. Nearly four years later, AP reporter Matt Lee asked State Department Jen Psaki to name one thing that Clinton’s QDDR accomplished. Just one. She can’t. LEE: “Off the top of your head, can you name one tangible achievement that the last QDDR resulted in?” PSAKI: “Well Matt, obviously it’s in an extensive, expansive process.” LEE: “So no.” PSAKI: “We’re looking at how it was done last time.” LEE: “Just one.” PSAKI: “I know, I’m making an important

U.S. military personnel has been on the ground in Yemen sifting through the aftermath of recent drone strikes, helping to retrieve bodies and data from the scene of a handful of weekend drone strikes carried out by the CIA, a source told Fox News on Tuesday. Separately, Fox News has learned that U.S. pilots provided airlift to Yemeni troops via Russian-built MI8 helicopters overnight for a separate ambush on a vehicle believed to be carrying top Al Qaeda militants. The missions follow the recent targeting of suspected terrorists in the country. On Monday, a suspected U.S. drone strike in southern Yemen killed 68 people,

President Obama vowed that the nation would be "strong right alongside" the victims of the Oso, Wash. mudslide after touring the area where a hillside gave way last month and wiped out a small neighborhood, killing at least 41 people. "The country is thinking about all of you and have been throughout this tragedy," Obama said. "We´re not going anywhere. We´ll be here as long as it takes." Obama thanked first responders, federal officials, and lawmakers, saying they have been "relentless in making sure Oso has the resources they need." And Obama said he was "inspired by the incredible way the community

The Citizens Commission on Benghazi, a self-selected group of former top military officers, CIA insiders and think-tankers, declared Tuesday in Washington that a seven-month review of the deadly 2012 terrorist attack has determined that it could have been prevented – if the U.S. hadn´t been helping to arm al-Qaeda militias throughout Libya a year earlier. ´The United States switched sides in the war on terror with what we did in Libya, knowingly facilitating the provision of weapons to known al-Qaeda militias and figures,´ Clare Lopez, a member of the commission and a former CIA officer, told MailOnline.

Disciplined IRS workers

More than 2,800 Internal Revenue Service workers who had been disciplined recently received millions of dollars in bonuses and time off as part of an employee recognition program, a new government audit shows. The IRS has a program that rewards its employees for a job well done, but a report released Tuesday by the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration found that, between October 1, 2010, and December 31, 2012, more than 2,800 recently disciplined IRS workers got more than $2.8 million in monetary awards and more than 27,000 hours in time-off awards. The employee infractions included not paying their taxes. “While not

The self-styled “civil rights” organization Southern Poverty Law Center, which despite mounting controversy maintains some links to government agencies, released a bizarre and factually challenged screed attacking critics and opponents of the deeply controversial United Nations plot known as Agenda 21. Apparently unfamiliar with the definition of basic words such as “conspiracy” and “theory,” or with the UN plan itself, the SPLC also lashed out at “activist groups,” “mainstream politicians,” voters, “extremists,” and others who question or oppose the UN agenda for what it calls “sustainable development” in the United States.

The Obama administration is poised to entertain a flood of new clemency applications from thousands of federal prisoners who were given harsh sentences under mandatory-minimum laws following drug convictions, Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday. Holder said in a short videotaped statement that he wants to shrink the federal prison population by a modest amount while ensuring ´that those who have paid their debts have a chance to become productive citizens.´ At the center of the move is a set of old sentencing rules that punished crack-cocaine offenders with more time behind bars than users or traffickers of powder cocaine.

Former Sen. Bob Dole (R-Kan.) said a number of junior GOP senators considering a presidential run in 2016 do not yet have the experience — specifically naming Rand Paul (Ky.), Marco Rubio (Fla.) and Ted Cruz (Texas). The former 1996 GOP presidential candidate sounded particularly skeptical of Cruz in an interview this week with The Wichita Eagle. "A number of the younger members, first-termers like Rand Paul, Rubio and that extreme-right-wing guy, Ted Cruz — all running for president now. I don´t think they´ve got enough experience yet," Dole said. The 90-year-old former senator said, however, his main concern about 2016 is living

If Jeb reaches for the nomination, there will be a titanic battle between the party establishment and the Tea Party. Steve Schmidt, McCain’s strategist in 2008, insists that in the end Republicans usually settle on the most electable candidate. To get by, this Bush may be forced to trim his positions, although the cautionary tale of Romney suggests that he would have to tack artfully and carefully for the sake of the general election. Certainly he will have the resources to outlast, discredit, and disqualify his rivals.

Washington - Michelle Obama said "splurging is the key to life" if you regularly eat right and stay active. Her biggest guilty pleasure: French fries. "How would you appreciate vegetables if you never had chocolate?" she asked. "You couldn´t live without a little chocolate, a little French fries." The first lady took questions from children reporters Monday after appearing at the White House Easter Egg Roll. She told the children that if they eat right the majority of the time, then a splurge or snack is not going to hurt them. "I still splurge when I can, but that's why I try to exercise almost every day," she said.

There’s a pattern of falsifying statistics throughout the entire Census Bureau. And anyone who attempts to blow the whistle on the fraud is either retaliated against or ignored, according to two new sources who have experienced the process firsthand. As I’ve been writing for more than six months, the Census Bureau office in Philadelphia uncovered a case of fraud in 2010, did nothing about it and allowed the practice to continue. In that instance, a data collector named Julius Buckmon was faking reports that went into the nation’s all-important jobless tally and consumer-inflation survey. Because the Census Bureau’s surveys are scientific — meaning

New audio reveals an Eastern Connecticut State University professor warning that Republicans will “want things to go back — not to to 1955, but to 1855? if they win control of Congress in November. Republican victories could also put him out of a job, he cautioned. “We will live in a very, very, very different kind of country if that happens,” Professor Brent Terry told students in his Introduction to Creative Writing course, according to audio obtained by Campus Reform. “I mean, colleges will start closing up if these people have their way.” Over the course of his rant, Terry characterized conservatives

As he moves from lobbyists to the golf course, from press conferences to the tanning bed, he remains oblivious to all that is around him. He has power, incredible power, and yet to this day he has no understanding of the election that made it so. Moreover, all around him are astonishing opportunities for him to be an historic figure -- one who could and should be the man who did more than any other single person in turning back the red tide of Obama. It’s all there for Speaker of the House, and yet John Boehner manages to miss

Global sea levels have risen by 8 inches (20cm) since 1880 and scientists predict they could rise up to 3ft (98cm) by 2100. But despite the UN’s recent threats of war, famine and extreme weather, such a dramatically different world caused by sea level rise can be hard to imagine. To help picture the future, Martin Vargic, an amateur graphic designer from Slovakia, has created a map depicting the planet with sea levels around 260ft (79m) higher than they are today. He imagines what Earth would look like if the ice sheets surrounding the North and South poles melted, releasing

It may not be tomorrow, but Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) says "something will happen" to force a Nevada rancher to obey a court order to stop grazing his cattle on federal land and pay his grazing fees. "It´s obvious that you can´t just walk away from this," Reid said in an April 18 interview with a Nevada´s KSNV-TV News 3 program “What’s Your Point?” "You can´t have a law that is -- we´re a nation of laws, not of men and women," he said.

Harry Reid isn’t backing down from his claim that rancher Cliven Bundy’s supporters are “domestic terrorists.” It’s astonishing rhetoric given the White House’s characterization of the mass shooting by a genuine terrorist, Major Nidal Hasan, who killed 13 Americans at the Fort Hood Army base after yelling “Allahu Akbar!” (God is great.) Rather than labeling Hasan’s actions “domestic terrorism,” the Obama administration is prosecuting him for having committed “workplace violence.” Democratic rhetoric is become ever more desperate and overheated as we approach the November midterm elections. Last week, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said that GOP positions on immigration were motivated by
