Country Singer’s New Restaurant in Virginia, ‘Toby Keith’s I Love This Bar and Grill’ Sparks Second Amendment Controversy … “No Guns Permitted”
Second Amendment controversy erupts as ’Toby Keith’s I Love This Bar and Grill’ does not permit guns in establishment.
Once again we are presented with a situation that puts Americans on both side of the fence of the gun question. The country singer restaurant named after himself, ‘Toby Keith’s I Love This Bar and Grill’ in Woodbridge, VA has plunged into said gun carry controversy. The restaurant’s statement says, “It is our desire to provide a safe, enjoyable and entertaining experience for our patrons and staff.” Obviously, that is not a true statement because those who have carry permits and want to frequent this bar and grill do not feel safe or entertained. How does one provide a safe environment when only the bad guys would bring guns into the establishment, because as we all know, bad guys, thieves, robbers, thugs and punks don’t follow abide by the law or signs that say, “No guns permitted”.
A new restaurant that recently opened in Woodbridge is sparking a Second Amendment controversy, especially online.
The restaurant named for country music star Toby Keith has posted a “No guns permitted” sign on its front door and gun rights supporters are blasting the restrictions on the chain’s Facebook page. Some comments accuse Keith, who doesn’t own the restaurant, of being anti-gun.
Virginia is a right to carry state, which means residents can openly carry a firearm without a license.
The Facebook page of Toby Keith’s I Love This Bar and Grill in Woodbridge posted on Saturday:
“While we understand and respect every person’s right to own and bear arms, we at Toby Keith’s I Love This Bar and Grill, with guidance from the State of Virginia and based on insurance regulations, have adopted a no weapons policy. It is our desire to provided a safe, enjoyable and entertaining experience for our patrons and staff.”
In the The United States, “We the People” have a US Constitution and a Second Amendment Right to bear Arms, shall not be infringed; however, private business owners also have a right to make certain guidelines for their places of business. Or do they? To read most of the comments from the anti-gun crowd show their ignorance and uninformed opinion of what is taking place. Virginia law specifically states that that an individual can carry a gun on to a premises that sells alcohol as long as the permit colder does not consume alcohol. If they do, any person granted a concealed handgun permit who is under the influence of alcohol or illegal drugs while carrying such weapon in a public place shall be guilty of a Class 1 misdemeanor.
Let’s see what happens when the bad guys bring guns into this establishment and rob the place knowing that it is a soft target and a gun free zone.
Some thing to think about … Isn’t it interesting that a business can discriminate against law abiding, gun carrying, Second Amendment, state law protected Americans and tell them to leave or not serve them, yet if that same establishment discriminated against the patron based on their skin color, religion or sexual orientation, they would be fined, closed down and possibly arrested for violating their civil rights?
Of course in the end, you have the right to protest this place of business with you wallet and go all “Duck Dynasty” on them. Eventually places of business will learn to understand who their customer really is and not be consistently fall in line with liberal, knee-jerk political correctness.
UPS & FEDEX Draw Fire From Customers After Packages Fail to be Delivered by Christmas … Wonder If Americans & the MSM Will Do the Same with Obamacare?
NBC News referred to FEDEX and UPS as “The Grinch” … I wonder if they will do the same with Barack Obama as millions of Americans will not have insurance coverage on January 1, 2014?
UPS and FEDEX are certainly to blame for not properly forecasting the volume of delivery packages that they would have to deliver this holiday season. On-line shopping is becoming more and more the way to go as many individuals no longer want to deal with the insanity of malls and simply want to point and click. Also, with the continues recession and bad economy for the common folk, many were forced to ship gifts rather than travel to grandma’s house.
Of course this is a PITA, especially if one purchased way ahead of time and thought they had a guarantee that the packages would be delivered to their destination on time. Trying to tell a child that Santa had a backlog of presents just does not quite cut it. Even Cindy Loo Who didn’t really buy the light out on the Christmas tree lie when the Grinch said, “there is a light on the tree that would not light on one side and he was bringing it back to his workshop.” However, that being said … it is not the end of the world. What is a little more important and affects your lives in a much worse way is having your insurance canceled or prices driven up because of Obamacare and not knowing even if you have signed up and enrolled, you have no idea whether you even have coverage. No one forced you to use FEDEX or UPS and if not, pay a tax. The same could not be said for Obamacare.
Although many people are giving UPS and FEDEX a piece of their mind on Twitter and Social media and it is much worse than STINK, STANK, STUNK!!!
An unexpected surge of online orders in the past few weeks appears to have strained the limits of delivery and fulfillment infrastructure at retailers and parcel carriers. While instances of bad weather, Web glitches and late deliveries from manufacturers also played a part, the sheer volume may have been the problem, according to retail analysts.
United Parcel Service Inc. determined late Tuesday that it wouldn’t be able to get some goods to customers in time for Christmas, as a spike in last-minute shopping demand overwhelmed its system.
“The volume of air packages in the UPS system did exceed capacity as demand was much greater than our forecast,” spokeswoman Susan Rosenberg said in response to questions. UPS delivers around 45% of U.S. packages and saw more shipments enter its air network on Monday than the 7.75 million it expected.
Thousands of Americans awoke to find that special something missing from beneath the Christmas tree Wednesday, a day after UPS acknowledged getting swamped by the seasonal cheer and failing to deliver orders in time.
Now, rival FedEx appears to share the blame for the holiday that wasn’t.
“We’re sorry that there could be delays and we’re contacting affected customers who have shipments available for pickup,” Scott Fiedler, a spokesman for FedEx, told the Associated Press Wednesday.
Pressed Christmas afternoon, a supervisor at 1-800-GoFedex, the customer support line, went further in a call with NBC News. He declined to give his last name, citing company policy, but acknowledged “extraordinary” delays at the shipping giant and said his team had been apologizing to customers.
“We give our apologies to customers,” he told NBC News, noting that bad weather had crippled planes and delivery trucks and unforeseen demand swamped what vehicles remained in operation.
That mirrors what UPS first acknowledged on Tuesday, as the complaints piled up and packages failed to arrive.
Rev. Jesse Jackson Compares ‘Duck Dynasty’s’ Phil Robertson to Rosa Parks’ Bus Driver … Judge Not Lest Ye Be Judged
Some will do anything to keep races at each others throats and make a buck in the process …
Late to the game but never wanting to miss a chance to miss the media attention, Rev. Jesse Jackson of the Rainbow PUSH Coalition condemned Phil Robertson’s, the ‘Duck Dynasty’ patriarch, comment African Americans and gays and compared them to the comments made by Rosa Parks’ bus driver. HUH? So let’s understand this, Jackson thinks that Robertson’s comments are more offensive than telling Rosa Parks to get to the back of the bus? Good grief, could Jackson possibly marginalize Rosa Parks anymore? Jackson stated that the Rainbow PUSH Coalition is demanding to meet with network execs, along with Cracker Barrel’s CEO, to discuss the future of all “Duck Dynasty” memorabilia or content. Yea, no shakedown here.
If Jackson was intellectually honest here, he would see who’s civil rights were actually violated. I guess the Reverend Jackson does not care about Freedom of Speak and Freedom of Religion when it does not go along with his liberal agenda.
Duck Dynasty makes how much in merchandise, I need me some of that …
Jesse Jackson Sr. has jumped into the controversy surrounding comments by Phil Robertson, star of A&E’s backwoods 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,” he said in the release. “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, who stars in the show as the head of a Louisiana family that makes duck calls.
The Gateway Pundit reminds us that he who cast stones, best check out if the house they live in is made of glass as the it was the Reverend Jackson “who once said he wanted to cut Barack Obama’s penis off and who fathered a love child out of wedlock.” Oh yea, and lest we forget that the Rev. Jesse Jackson was accused of harassment by a gay male staffer two years ago. But all this does not matter for when one brings this up, we are accused of judging Mr. Jackson.
UPDATE I: This is classic as reported at The Raw Story … Because it is perfectly acceptable for Jessee Jackson and hid personality and large platform to benefit from race baiting. Judge not lest ye be judged.
Jackson’s statement also called for executives at A&E Network, which airs Robertson’s show, and Cracker Barrel, which sells Duck Dynasty-related merchandise, to meet with himself and representatives from not only his organization, the Rainbow PUSH Coalition, but the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation and the National Organization for Women.
“It is unacceptable that a personality who has been given such a large platform would benefit from racist and anti-gay comments,” the statement read.

Snarf’s Sub Shop in Chicago That Was Target of Union Thugs Demanding $15 an Hour Shuts Down & Fires Its Employees Via Email Just Days Before Christmas
Question to the ‘Fight for 15′ crowd … which is better $9.50 an hour or $0.00?
Snarf’s Sub Shop in Chicago has closed it’s doors and fired all of their staff just days before Christmas via email. Snarf’s was the target of the SEIU and was closed for four days, from December 5 until December 8, as employees went on striking demanding $15 an hour and better benefits. Now they are all out of work just before the holidays. From the files of, don’t ask for things they might just come true. So hows that strike and forcing your employer to shut down working out for you now?
You want to be paid $15/hr to make a sandwich, are you kidding?
Wonder how the guy with the FF15 Victory … Snarf’s Shut Down sign feels about now?
A Chicago sandwich shop has fired all of its 20 staff over email just two days before Christmas.
Staff at Snarf’s Sub Shop in River North received the bad news on Sunday night in a group email notifying them that the drastic action was effective immediately.
The company blamed ‘increased competition and losses’ for the firings.
Director of operations Doug Besant said in the email the restaurant will likely close for a month as they remodel and reconcept the business into a burger joint.
But the move comes less than a month after Snarf’s workers rallied for higher wages.
The email, obtained by ChicagoGrid.com, read: ‘Due to increased competition and losses, ownership has decided to consider remodeling and reconcepting the store at 600 West Chicago Ave.
The sandwich shop claims that the firings were not a retaliation for their strike. So what if they were? Chicago fast-food, retail workers join in nationwide protest over wages. Honestly, if my business was hanging on by a thread and individuals picketed by business forcing me to shut down for days, they all would have been fired then. Sorry, making sandwiches is not a $15 a hr. job. Hmm, Chicago is a union town eh, so was Detroit, how are they doing these days?
Clustered around a giant, bright green “Grinch,” the protesters — part of a “100-city strike wave”— are demanding a $15-an-hour wage and the right to form a union without retaliation.
“Chicago is a union town!” they chanted outside Snarf’s Sandwiches, 600 W. Chicago, one of several stops during a planned daylong demonstration in the city.
The group was expected to include workers from McDonald’s, Subway, CVS Pharmacy, Sears — among other companies.
Police Release New VIDEO of San Jose Walmart Rampage that Occurred March 2013 … Haamid Zaid Arrested and Faces Two Counts of Attempted Murder
San Jose police release a new video of Haamid Zaid plowing his car through a Walmart. The incident occurred in March 2013. Haamid Zaid crashed his vehicle through the Walmart store and then got out and started attacking customers with a metal club. Hmm, was this a hate crime or jihad? Haamid Zaid did this stunt on Easter Sunday. It appears that this dude has a history of doing this as ABC KGO-TV reports, Haamid Zaid also drove a silver Lexus right through the double glass doors of a Chevron gas station and convenience store on Capitol Expressway last December.
The incident happened in March 2013 at the Walmart store on Story Road. The video shows people running for safety as a car rips through the store.
The driver got out and started attacking customers with a metal club until they subdued him.
Police are now trying to bolster their case against the man they arrested — Haamid Zaid. Zaid faces 12 counts including two attempted murder charges.
San Jose Police released surveillance video showing a red Oldsmobile Cutlass crashing through the front door of a Walmart in East San Jose off of Story Road about nine months ago, causing a ruckus on Easter Sunday, hoping the public can help identify witnesses and victims.
The footage, released on Dec. 18, showed the driver, 33-year-old Haamid Zaid, slam the vehicle through the front of the store, reverse, and crash again going further into the store.
Last December, Zaid also allegedly rammed his car through the front window of a convenient store on the Capitol Auto Mall, first reported by NBC Bay Area, which obtained exclusive video of that crash.
Police say anyone with information regarding the Walmart crash should call San Jose police department’s Assaults Unit at (408) 277-4161, or to call anonymously to Silicon Valley Crimestoppers at (408) 947-STOP(7867).

CRACKER BARREL Reverses Decision to Pull Duck Dynasty Phil Robertson’s Merchandise After Getting Hammered by Calls, Tweets, Emails and Comments on Facebook … “We made a mistake, we listened to you, and we apologize.”
I love the smell of victory in the morning … it smells like Cracker Barrel
eating cooking crow, or is that Uncle Hershel’s breakfast?
WE THE PEOPLE HAVE SPOKE AND CRACKER BARREL HAS REVERSED THEIR DECISION!!!
Cracker Barrel announced Sunday they have reversed a decision to remove select “Duck Dynasty” products of Phil Robertson’s from their restaurants after getting bombarded by DD’s loyal supporters. Don’t think you don’t have a voice America, because you do. In the end, Cracker Barrel knows damn well who butters their bread and it isn’t GLAAD. It was just Friday that Cracker Barrel had made the foolish, knee-jerk reaction to pull Phil Robertson’s merch. I guess they noticed all the negative comments on their Facebook page and a lack of folks ordering Uncle Hershel’s for breakfast.
KUDOS to all of you that expressed your opinion and told Cracker Barrel that they were hypocrites and you would voice your opinion with your wallets and purses. This PC crap will no longer be tolerated. It is about time the silent majority spoke up … let this only be the beginning.
As reported at Forbes, Oops, our bad … we made a mistake.
Cue a barrage of tweets, emails, and calls from Duck Dynasty fans to the powers that be at Cracker Barrel, not to mention threats of a boycott.
Now, a day later, the 625-outlet comfort food chain has capitulated and will resume selling Duck Dynasty products.
Reported Tonight on Phil Valentine Show 99.7 FM That Cracker Barrel Restaurants Pulling Phil Robertson’s Duck Dynasty Merchandise off Shelves … Cracker Barrel Makes It Official (UPDATE: Cracker Barrel Reverses Decision)
It was reported tonight on the Phil Valentine Radio Show, on Super Talk 99.7, WTN-FM, that Cracker Barrel restaurants in Alabama and Tennessee were pulling Phil Robertson merchandise off their shelves. According to accounts and eye witnesses that were at Cracker Barrels and had contacted them, the edict supposedly came from corporate. According to what was being reported, it was only merchandise with Phil’s likeness, not all ‘Duck Dynasty’ merch.
If this proves to be true that Cracker Barrel actually took it upon themselves to pull the merchandise, they are going to feel the wrath of their customers as it would appear they do not know who their customer truly is.
Rather interesting that the Duck Dynasty merchandise sells out at Walmart, yet Cracker Barrel takes a different approach.
Have received many text messages & emails of merchandise being pulled from many stores by individuals calling CB’s and actually going to them.
UPDATE I: Cracker Barrel finally makes it official, even though the cat was out of the bag and reported here at Scared Monkeys long before the $hit hit the fan and Cracker Barrel restaurants were being flooded with calls. It would appear that CB only believes in equal treatment of certain people. Let the BOYCOTT BEGIN …
UPDATE II: The story turns out to be true and guess who had it way before many of the big boys? Many tweets can be read at Twitchy.
UPDATE III: GLAAD thinks they got blow back and a backlash in response to their intolerant actions, Cracker Barrel is about to get whacked themselves for their PC nonsense and catering to the intolerant gay activist community.
I guess it is pretty obvious that Cracker Barrel has no idea who their customer is. Just a hint to the suits at Cracker Barrel … it ain’t GLAAD!!! Have you taken a look at your Facebook page comments. I am not sure if I saw any that said, good for you, we plan on eating there more. Looks like the Cracker Barrel crowd will stop eating Uncle Herschel’s Favorite and … EAT MOR CHICKEN.
Here are just a few of the Duck Dynasty and free speech comments from the CB Facebook:
- Jody Dixon After you are done removing the selected products, go ahead and remove a bunch of tables and chairs……you won’t be needing them any more.
- Lynette Boullion Dischler EAT AT CHICK-FIL A! THEY DID NOT BOW DOWN TO THE gaystapo!
- Randy Culp I’m offended by your removal of any Duck Commander products. I’ve given you my business for many years now but I’m not under any contract that requires me to continue. If you knuckle under to these groups that don’t stand for any of my values, I will never darken your door again. I’m fed up with 2% of the population controlling everything in our freakin’ country
- Tina Leigh Morris I will boycott Cracker Barrel until a full apology is offered for even getting involved!!! NONE if their merchandise is offensive!!! Cracker Barrel is just realizing they made A HUGE MISTAKE!!!
- Lynette Boullion Dischler The irony is glaad and a&e did not respect Phil Robertsons religious beliefs. You condone censorship. Please tell me on what planet could Duck Dynasty products offend ANYONE? Bobble Heads and Camo shirs? You knew of his beliefs when you made money off of them to begin with. YOU ARE HYPOCRITES
- Jamey Mills Was getting ready to spend 200.00 on gift cards for my employees but not now. I might add that I am offended that you removed some items so does that count for anything.
- Joann Andrews Well while you are evaluating this “Problem” I will be eating across the street….. I stand on the Bible, along with the Robertson family.. My freedom…
- Mark Owens Dear Cracker Barrel, you have grossly misjudged your consumer base. I support Duck Commander products in support of the Robertson’s, obviously your decision making is based on A&E’s position. I will no longer eat at CB’s if your gonna be biased and judge people for who they want to be and not by what a corporation or PC leftists want them to be!
UPDATE IV: To the Gateway Pundit, thanks for the link … Today, Jim Hofts and Missouri Patriots were holding Missouri politicians feet to the fire and demanding answers and apologies for their lies on Obamacare.
To my long-time bud .. Jim, GET WELL!!! God Bless You!!!
UPDATE V: Glad ABC could finally report on 12/23/13 that Cracker Barrel was pulling Phil Robertson Merchandise off their shelves.
UPDATE V: VICTORY ... CRACKER BARREL REVERSES DECISION AND PUTS ALL DUCK DYNASTY MERCH BACK ON THE SHELVES!!!
SUPPORT PHIL ROBERTSON & DUCK DYNASTY … Sign the A&E Boycott … Get Ready for a Chick-Fil-A Boycott Response on Steroids!!!
DUCK, DUCK …
A&E really stepped in it by their knee-jerk reaction to the pressures for gay activist groups like GLAAD. The permanent suspension of Robertson family patriarch Phil Roberson for basically espousing his US Constitutionally protected free speech and religious beliefs may just be more than many are willing to take lightly. In many respects this is not a case of one’s religious beliefs, it is greater than that … it is a free speech issue that affects even those who may not have the same beliefs as Phil Robertson. This situation reeks of the Gay activists attack on Chick Fil-A when CEO Dan Cathy was attached for his free speech as well. Hmm, how did that support turn out for Chick-Fil-A? I will say that the support for Duck Dynasty will look like Chick Fil A on steroids.
Governor Jindal said, “Phil Robertson and his family are great citizens of the State of Louisiana. The politically correct crowd is tolerant of all viewpoints, except those they disagree with. I don’t agree with quite a bit of stuff I read in magazine interviews or see on TV. In fact, come to think of it, I find a good bit of it offensive. But I also acknowledge that this is a free country and everyone is entitled to express their views. In fact, I remember when TV networks believed in the First Amendment. It is a messed up situation when Miley Cyrus gets a laugh, and Phil Robertson gets suspended “
Several prominent conservatives have expressed their support for “Duck Dynasty” star Phil Robertson following his suspension by A&E for making controversial remarks about homosexuals.
Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin posted a picture of herself with Robertson and his family on Facebook Wednesday night. The caption reads: “Free speech is an endangered species. Those ‘intolerants’ hatin’ and taking on the Duck Dynasty patriarch for voicing his personal opinion are taking on all of us.”
EXIT QUESTION … Wonder how incumbent Louisiana Democrat Senator Mary Landrieu is feeling right about now? In the past we have had the voting blocks of Soccer moms, NASCAR and now we have the Duck Dynasty voters.
Gallup Poll: 72% Say Big Goverment is Greatest Threat to America Than Big Business or Big Labor … Total Rejection of Obama, Nanny State Liberalism
Looks like America might just know tyranny when they see it …
According to the latest Gallup poll, an astonishing 72% of Americans now say that “BIG” government is the greatest threat to America as compared with big business and big labor. WOW!!!
The PJ Tatler makes an astute observation that has a lot of merit, see the chart below and notice when the noticeable upward trend began in 2009. Hmm, what happened then? Of course this boost in Americans fear of big government has everything to do with the so-called “Hope & Change” that they voted for in electing Barack Obama. It would appear that the folks at Hot Air noticed the remarkable trajectory as well. He promised transparency and delivered something quite different. What’s the matter America, you have a problem with the IRS enforcing Obamacare? Personally, I think they need to start including the MSM in these polls as well.
America, wake the hell up and make a stand against “BIG GOVERNMENT” liberalism or it will be here to stay. Elections matter, get out and vote against it if you feel strongly against it!!!
Seventy-two percent of Americans say big government is a greater threat to the U.S. in the future than is big business or big labor, a record high in the nearly 50-year history of this question. The prior high for big government was 65% in 1999 and 2000. Big government has always topped big business and big labor, including in the initial asking in 1965, but just 35% named it at that time.
The latest update comes from a Dec. 5-8 poll. Gallup has documented a steady increase in concern about big government since 2009, rising from 55% in March 2009 to 64% in November 2011 and 72% today. This suggests that government policies specific to the period, such as the Affordable Care Act — perhaps coupled with recent revelations of government spying tactics by former NSA contractor Edward Snowden — may be factors.
I would also add this upswing has in part to do with a bunch of gutless, establishment RINO’s who think that it is more important to sell ouch their Republican principles and protecting “We the People” as opposed to retain their power.
Duck Dynasty’s’ Phil Robertson on Indefinite Leave Afrter Following His Remarks on Homosexuality (Update: Phil Robertson Statement – ‘I would never treat anyone with disrespect just because they are different from me’.)
Freedom of Speech & Religion is dead at ‘A&E” … GOOD GRIEF A&E, LET THEM BE!!!
Duck Dynasty is a huge success and loved by so many, but the show may be going the way of the Do-Do bird. A&E has placed Duck Dynasty patriarch Phil Robertson on indefinite leave after he dare speak the truth of his religious beliefs in an interview with GQ Magazine. So once again we see that a network does not believe in freedom of speech or freedom of religion for an individual to make comments on his own time that had nothing to do with the show, Duck Dynasty. The comments that got Phil Robertson in trouble:
“It seems like, to me, a vagina – as a man – would be more desirable than a man’s anus. That’s just me,” Robertson stated. “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.”
Hat Tip: The Drudge Report
It didn’t take long for the LEFT, GLAAD and LGBT community to go after their scalp.
From The Hollywood Reporter:
A note to A&E, Phil Robertson did not say that his comments or beliefs were that of A&E. So much for tolerance at A&E. The reason why 9 million people watch Duck Dynasty is because these folks are common, folksy people that many can relate to and are real. They are not a train wreck like most all reality shows. How shameful that A&E be pressured by GLAAD.
A&E has placed Duck Dynasty patriarch Phil Robertson on indefinite hiatus following anti-gay remarks he made in a recent profile in GQ.
“We are extremely disappointed to have read Phil Robertson’s comments in GQ, which are based on his own personal beliefs and are not reflected in the series Duck Dynasty,” A&E said in a statement. “His personal views in no way reflect those of A+E Networks, who have always been strong supporters and champions of the LGBT community. The network has placed Phil under hiatus from filming indefinitely.”
The news comes after Robertson compared homosexuality to bestiality in an interview with the magazine. He’ll likely appear in season four, which bows Jan. 15, since production is largely wrapped.
“It seems like, to me, a vagina — as a man — would be more desirable than a man’s anus,” Robertson says in the January issue of the men’s magazine. “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.”
Weasel Zippers adds, Phil Robertson said, “It seems like, to me, a vagina—as a man—would be more desirable than a man’s anus. That’s just me.” So true … and I would add that probably 99% of the men that watch Duck Dynasty probably feel the same.
UPDATE I: A&E released this statement from Phil Robertson addressing the controversy:
“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.” Beyond that.
UPDATE II: Just another case of MEDIA BIAS.
Many people have argued over the years, in the face of the obvious evidence, that the media cannot be systematically biased to the Left because it would not make business sense to spurn more than half the population as customers. However, the recent decision by A&E to fire its biggest and most lucrative TV star because it is more concerned about catering to homosexuals than making money vividly demonstrates that politics and propaganda are more important to the media companies than making a profit:
FEAR THE BEARD!!!
A&E best be very careful as a backlash boycott and protest of the network and their sponsors by the 9 million viewers of Duck Dynasty could be right around the corner. A&E might want to “Fear the Beard,” this down home, country family is more popular than A&E.
UPDATE III: Sarah Palin blasts A&E for their suspension of Phil Robertson; Declares free speech ‘endangered species.’
