OMFG! – HRC Responds To The Duck Dynasty Fiasco: “We think it’s actually a positive outcome.”

OMG

 

When sucking on lemons try to make it seen like its a new way to drink lemonade so people don’t realize just how badly you you fucked-up and keep giving you money.

Via CNN:

“It’s not really a reversal,” Fred Sainz, a representative of the Human Rights Campaign, told CNN’s Brianna Keilar in a telephone interview on Friday. “We think it’s actually a positive outcome, and we want to thank A&E for their attentiveness and collaboration over the course of the last few weeks.”

Sainz said that his group was “heartened” by A&E’s plans for the public service announcement campaign. A spokesman for A&E declined to comment on whether Robertson or other “Duck Dynasty” cast members would participate in the campaign, but the channel is said to be hopeful that at least some of the cast members will.

“We’ve received assurances also that the Robertson family is now open to working with African-American and (lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender) people to address the real harm that such anti-gay and racist comments can cause,” Sainz said on CNN. “That’s been our ‘ask’ since Phil’s comments ran in GQ, and while it’s a positive step, it certainly cannot and should not be the last one.”

And for anyone out there that doesn’t believe that HRC and GLAAD are walking away from this with some monetary donation from A&E/Disney/Hearst you are just as delusional as HRC.

  1. Damn, just when I was starting to think that the HRC might be on the path to becoming relevant. Thanks Will, for noting this and to Pam Spaulding, John A. and the others for retweeting…

  2. Thoroughly disgusted but not surprised by the crack sucking spineless HRC. This is why you’ll never get a penny from me. The GayTM needs to be shut down for these two-faced bigots. The HRC takes your money while calling you gay slur behind your back. DISGUSTING!

  3. On Monday I’m going to cancel my cable television as a protest against A&E bringing Robertson back. There are plenty of alternatives to cable television. I use Apple TV, but there are others. I will no longer pay to have bigotry sent into my home.

  4. Duck die nasty is not “HOLLYWOOD”. It is partialy toothed, swampish, mosquito bitten & fashionably tactless. Those qualities make it astonishing to the cosmopolitan & metropolitan. as the late Anna Nichol Smith use to say: “If I’m being exploited at least I’m gettin paid for it”

What do you think?
