Duck Dynasty’s Phil Robertson Calls Gay Marriage ‘Evil, Wicked, Sinful’ Stumping For Ted Cruz At Iowa Rally – Video

Phil Robertson and Ted Cruz sex tape

Duck Dynasty patriarch Phil Robertson opened for the sideshow known as the Ted Cruz Campaign yesterday in Iowa City, IA by bashing gay marriage as ‘evil, wicked, and sinful’.

“Don’t you understand that when a fellow like me looks at the landscape and sees the depravity, the perversion — redefining marriage and telling us that marriage is not between a man and a woman? Come on Iowa! It’s nonsense. It is evil. It’s wicked. It’s sinful. They want us to swallow it, you say. We have to run this bunch out of Washington, D.C. We have to rid the earth of them. Get them out of there. Ted Cruz loves God.”

In response Cruz called Robertson “an extraordinary human being” and added “What a voice Phil has to speak out for the love of Jesus. What a joyful, cheerful, unapologetic voice of truth Phil Robertson is.”

Quack quack!

Desperate For Ratings Another Duck Dynasty Dude Spreads The Anti-Gay Hate – Video

Duck Dynasty is FAKE

Now that their shows ratings have dropped over 50% on A&E,  Duck Dynasty’s resident fake redneck son (see picture above) and CEO of Duck Commander, Willie Robertson, told CNN’s Kyra Phillips today that he believes “what the Bible says” about gay people, standing behind his crazed father Phil Robertson’s anti-gay comments made last December.

“[Phil Robertson] paraphrased First Corinthians, where it talks about homosexuals, male prostitutes, drunkards, thieves.. that they’re all the same. Is that what you believe?” Phillips asked. Robertson responded:

“That’s what First Corinthians says… I believe what the Bible says, and so if that’s what [God] says, to put those in… now, you have to read the Bible and make up your own mind. You have to decide… That’s how it was said, yeah.”

Willie obviously didn’t make it to 1 Corinthians 11:14 “Does not even nature itself teach you that if a man has long hair, it is a dishonor to him”. If you are going to quote the damn thing as “gospel” then quote and follow it all, not just the parts that are convenient for you to and your narrow, bigoted view of the world.

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



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.



A&E Pulls A Cracker Barrel, Lifts Suspension of Phil Robertson of Duck Dynasty – Good Work GLAAD!

Duck Dynasty douchebag


Well its over for now.  And guess who lost?

A&E and the Robertson family announced Friday that Phil Robertson, the man who thinks that blacks were better off under Jim Crow laws and that being gay is the same as performing beastialtywill still be part of the series Duck Dynasty  — and since he didn’t miss any filming, his temporary suspension will have no effect on the upcoming fifth season and really was worthless to begin with!

As a global media content company, A+E Networks’ core values are centered around creativity, inclusion and mutual respect. We believe it is a privilege for our brands to be invited into people’s homes, and we operate with a strong sense of integrity and deep commitment to these principles.

That is why we reacted so quickly and strongly to a recent interview with Phil Robertson. While Phil’s comments made in the interview reflect his personal views based on his own beliefs and his own personal journey, he and his family have publicly stated they regret the “coarse language” he used and the misinterpretation of his core beliefs based only on the article. He also made it clear he would “never incite or encourage hate.” We at A+E Networks expressed our disappointment with his statements in the article and reiterate that they are not views we hold.

But Duck Dynasty is not a show about one man’s views. It resonates with a large audience because it is a show about family … a family that America has come to love. As you might have seen in many episodes, they come together to reflect and pray for unity, tolerance and forgiveness. These are three values that we at A+E Networks also feel strongly about.

So after discussions with the Robertson family, as well as consulting with numerous advocacy groups, A&E has decided to resume filming Duck Dynasty later this spring with the entire Robertson family.

We will also use this moment to launch a national public service campaign (PSA) promoting unity, tolerance and acceptance among all people, a message that supports our core values as a company and the values found in Duck Dynasty. These PSAs will air across our entire portfolio.

One has to wonder since “ advocacy groups” were involved  exactly much of a donation from A&E both GLAAD and HRC received.?

This was a horrible fight to lose and opens up a Pandora’s box of hate speech under the guise of “Freedom of Speech” and once again its all due to the incompetence and lack of backbone of The Human Rights Campaign and GLAAD.


Jesse Jackson Sr. Joins Duck Dynasty Debacle, Demands Meeting With A&E

Jesse Jackson

Jesse Jackson Sr. has joined the controversy surrounding the anti-gay and racial comments by Phil Robertson, star of A&E’s backwoods (fake) reality TV show, “Duck Dynasty.”

In an announcement sent out Tuesday, Jackson Sr. compared Robertson’s recent comments about African-Americans, gay people and women to comments made by the driver of Rosa Parks’ bus.

“At least the bus driver, who ordered Rosa Parks to surrender her seat to a white person, was following state law, Robertson’s statements were uttered freely and openly without cover of the law, within a context of what he seemed to believe was ‘white privilege.’”

Jackson’s human rights group, the Rainbow PUSH Coalition, has demanded meetings with A&E and with Cracker Barrel regarding the two companies’ treatment of Robertson.  Jackson’s group, along with the National Organization for Women, urged A&E to keep Robertson on an indefinite hiatus from the show.  Cracker Barrel originally removed Duck Dynasty products from its Country Store shelves and A&E while suspending Robertson has been holding a Duck Dynasty marathon and financially reaping the rewards of the publicity.

Jackson Sr. and the leaders of the other groups are demanding a sit-down meeting with Cracker Barrel and A&E in the next couple of days.

“It is unacceptable that a personality who has been given such a large platform would benefit from racist and anti-gay comments,” the group leaders state in the release.”


Bristol Palin Calls Gays “Hypocrites” Over Duck Dynasty Debacle – *cough* Media Whore *cough*

PigBristol Palin, the adulterous unwed mother, devout “Christian” and daughter of former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin, sensing some free publicity came to the defense of “Duck Dynasty” patriarch Phil Robertson and called out the LGBT community as being “hypocritical.”

In “Bristol’s Blog” (HAHAHAHA!) on Patheos.com, the former governor of Alaska’s eldest daughter suggests that people should “leave Phil alone for expressing his beliefs.”

“I think it’s so hypocritical how the LGBT community expects every single flippen person to agree with their life style. This flies in the face of what makes America great – people can have their own beliefs and own opinions and their own ways of life.”

She goes on to say that everyone should treat each other as God would, “with love.”

“I hate how the LGBT community says it’s all about ‘love’ and ‘equality,'” she continues. “However, if you don’t agree with their lifestyle, they spread the most hate. It is so hypocritical it makes my stomach turn. They need to learn how to respect others’ opinions and not just jump to the conclusion that everyone who doesn’t support homosexuality and gay marriage is homophobic.”

Palin adds that members of the LGBT community are intolerant of traditional Christian beliefs on sexuality and marriage, *SNORT* and thus, act counter to their claims of fighting for tolerance. She also notes that by living in a country like the United States, people have the right to freedom of speech and freedom of thought, and shouldn’t be censored.

Bristol then suggests that the Robertsons should leave A&E and take their show elsewhere, despite their contractual agreement with the network.

I guess that’s better than being canned like Bristol’s “reality” show I suppose.

Bristol Palin.  The media whore doesn’t fall far from the tree.


Duck Dynasty Is Fake! – Dusty Smith Exposes Yuppies Turned Rednecks for A&E “Reality” Show

Duck Dynasty is FAKE

Now that the duckshit has hit the fan over Duck Dynasty’s Phil Robertson and his outrageous anti-gay and racially bigoted slurs truth about the A&E so -called reality show is beginning to come out including the fact that its a FAKE.  It seems that what A&E is trying to pass off as a rough and tumble show about a family of rough and tough backwoods duck hunters trying to make a living is nothing but television smoke and magic and that the family is quite well off and the good ole boys in reality are a bunch of golf playing yuppies.

Do they really run a duck call business? Yes. But other than that and Phil Robertson’s bigotry seems to be as far as the truth goes.

Watch as REAL southerner Dusty Smith exposes Ducky Dynasty and the Robertson klan below.

Duck Duck Douche – Duck Dynasty’s Phil Robertson: Homosexuality, It Ain’t Just Right

Duck Dynasty douchebag

“Everything is blurred on what’s right and what’s wrong… Sin becomes fine. 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.  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.

“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.”

So says Phil Robertson, star of A&E’s hit white trash television show Duck Dynasty speaking to GQ Magazine.

Not long after the redneck Tea Party “hero’s” statement became news A&E released the following statement from  Robertson :

“I myself am a product of the 60s; I centered my life around sex, drugs and rock and roll until I hit rock bottom and accepted Jesus as my Savior. My mission today is to go forth and tell people about why I follow Christ and also what the Bible teaches, and part of that teaching is that women and men are meant to be together. However, I would never treat anyone with disrespect just because they are different from me. We are all created by the Almighty and like Him, I love all of humanity. We would all be better off if we loved God and loved each other.”

Fucking bullshit.

Interestingly Robertson is he an adulterer. Funny how he picks, and chooses which parts of the Bible to follow, and which to ignore.

A&E has had no further comment.


The Walking Dead To Introduce Gay Characters In Season 3 Prison Storyline?



The Walking Dead, the zombie post-apocalyptic horror television series on AMC based on the comic book series of the same name by Robert Kirkman and developed for television by Frank Darabont just might have its first gay characters in Season 3 if Darabont and Kirkman stay true to the comic books original storyline.

But are they the kind of positive gay characters that the LGBT community wants and needs to be presented on television?

The show to this point has had a multitude of characters types, White, Black, Asian, Hispanic, and even added the red-hot redneck character of Daryl (played by Norman Reedus) but there has not up to this point been one character identifies as LGBT.

Kirkman, with a few exceptions has stayed true to the comic’s story-lines thus far in the television series with just a few exceptions.  Sophia who in the comics  is still alive and well,  was turned into a walker and was subsequently shot and killed by Rick in the second season of the TV show.  And Carol consumed by grief commits suicide.  The biggest change from the comic’s storyline so far has been the surprise demise of Dale who in the comic after being bitten by a zombie has his leg amputated and sneaks into the forest to die alone, but is kidnapped by a group of cannibals, who yes you guessed it, eats him.   But so far in Kirkman’s Walking Dead series world as in most of the most television world dramas LGBT people just don’t exist.

But that may change in Season 3 if Kirkman sticks to the comics Prison storyline but unfortunately it might not be for the better.

At the end of Season 2 of the Walking Dead the final shot was that of “The Prison” which leads into a new story arc in The Walking Dead comic series.  In the comics the remaining members of Rick’s group, join up with four surviving inmates to fortify the prison against zombies. But danger comes from within because one of the inmate is a psychotic killer.

But his is where an old gay cliché’ come in with the possible introduction of two of the surviving inmates at The Prison,  Andrew and Dexter.

From the Walking Dead Wiki

Dexter is a towering, physically intimidating African-American inmate who survived the outbreak trapped in The Prison cafeteria.  He has a covert homosexual relationship with Andrew, but is in the relationship purely for sex.  Dexter also knuws how take advantage of Andrew’s love for him..

Andrew is a convict who dealt in drugs but he survived the initial stages of the undead Apocalypse trapped inside The Prison cafeteria.  A homosexual relationship between him and Dexter was hinted at, and explored later. And at one point there is a  conversation between him and Axel (another inmate) concerning the availability of women now that the new group was among them and  Dexter will turn heterosexual again

So is this the representation that the LGBT community will get in The Walking Dead?  A cliche storyline of “gay prison sex/down low relationship” because there are no women around? Let’s hope not.

Now there is no guarantee that Kirkman will introduce this into the storyline.  But if he does it will be a total insult to the LGBT Community.  (Not to mention the Black community because, of course BOTH characters are Black)  As of now considering the United Nations of characters that have been seen on The Walking Dead the fact there has not been one LGBT character on this show is beyond belief.   Does Kirkman, Darabont and A&E not think that a LGBT person couldn’t survive a Zombie Apocalypse?  Have they ever seen a pissed off Drag Queen fight?   In this day and age that gay characters might be introduced as a “convict and his bitch” is just unconscionable and NOT a step in the right direction.

Invisibility on television is a major problem for the LGBT Community.  And many of the LGBT characters who are on television are satirical stereotypes.  Even on “Modern Family” which GLAAD lauds the two main gay characters are so stereotypically gay that they are really nothing more than a caricature.

For this to change television shows and movies must learn that a character being LGBT isn’t and doesn’t have to be THE storyline.  A persons sexuality is an aside, a trait like being left-handed or having blue eyes and should be presented and treated as such.  There are many a gay man out there that don’t wear cardigans and shop at Abercrombie & Fitch and can kick some serious ass if they needed to.

LGBT viewers of The Walking Dead and television in general deserve much better.  Better characters, better representation, and better advocating for such by our organizations instead of applauding tired old stereotypes.

Hopefully Kirkman will see the light and deliver at least one positive character that just happens to be gay during the shows run.  The Dexter/Andrew storyline is old, tired and really kind of offensive and who knows it may just be what bites the The Walking Dead in the ass.

UPDATE: 10.15.2012

At the end of last night Season 3 – Episode 1 première.  Rick and the others did indeed find a group of prisoners hiding in the prison cafeteria mirroring the comic’s storyline.  While these characters were not introduced by name, during the end credits one character was indeed listed in the credits as Andrew.  But there was no listing for the character of Dexter.

On the bright side Daryl DID fend off Creepy Carol’s advances so there is still hope for an asskicking gay redneck character.

I can dream can’t I?
