High Powered Fans of Phil Robertson and Duck Dynasty Flock to Their Defense

ed1eeb0d570e8dc1c1d2e43e0d10d74c

Some pretty big names are openly showing support for the suspended Duck Commander and the Duck Dynasty gang.  Some are even advocating for Duck Dynasty to move to Glenn Beck’s The Blaze TV .

Bobby 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.”

Here are a list of twitters from some people you may have heard of:

Free speech is endangered species; those “intolerants” hatin’ & taking on Duck Dynasty patriarch for voicing personal opinion take on us all

    Freedom of speech does not mean freedom from criticism. With anything you say or do, expect to be challenged. Especially if you say something stupid..

  • Patrick Zook

    Ones views of right and wrong are not stupid. If so then of course yours would be stupid also. Maybe some think takin it in the butt is stupid, that’s their opinion. If we all quit respecting every one elses opinion and ban something every time we don’t like it, guess what we will have nothing. Every one seems to think its all about them these days and no other person should speak up or ever do what they feel they should its always a big dramatic bunch of crap. We seem to have become a country of children fighting over nothing.

  • Trish Maxwell

    This is how I see it! I’m a Wicca and if he wishes to talk about his choice in life of what faith he choses to live then why are those that are opposed condemn? I love all the Humans in this world…not just those that are God followers but every Human! Think about if folks! Your choice in Faith is yours! It’s a personal journey! Why get upset if someone doesn’t your views? I mean really is it so hard to just let? ~BB~

  • francoamerian

    Freedom of speech should also mean you can say your ideas in public without having to fear you will lose your job.

  • Drew E Sundin Sr

    Good on you Phil. There are many of us that think the same way, feel the same way, and believe the same way. You just keep being yourself, and keep believing and your FAITH will be rewarded. We’ll take care of A&E, they have just been “indefinitely suspended” as far as I’m concerned. I still believe in Freedom of Speech…

  • Me

    OMG, sooooo don’t care. And I feel bad for you if you do.

  • PassingThru

    Why does this matter to anyone. Just get them the hell of the TV. This should have never been a show, let alone a show that anyone cared about.

  • Jeremy Forshee

    According to the Bible, it looks like Phil
    Robertson and all those saying he should practice righteousness in
    public were wrong and shall not receive God’s kingdom for they have
    already received their reward. It’s referring to pride and vanity.

    King James Bible

    Matthew 6:5

    And when thou prayest, thou shalt not be as the hypocrites are: for
    they love to pray standing in the synagogues and in the corners of the
    streets, that they may be seen of men. Verily I say unto you, They have
    their reward.

    Matthew 6:1
    “Be careful not to practice your
    righteousness in front of others to be seen by them. If you do, you will
    have no reward from your Father in heaven.

  • Duane Francis

    Bill O’Rilly said Phil had his Theoilgy wrong and site a passage in Luke but missed the 1st Corithains 6:9 passage out of the Catholic Bible

  • Dick Fitzwell

    O’Reilly is a pompous ass. I just watched his segment on this thing. What he “conveniently” left out, was that the reporter asked Phil his opinion on homosexuality. Phil gave his opinion, and tried to explain why he felt that way. Also, Phil never told them that they were going to hell. He stated that the Bible groups homosexuals in with all other sinners. The fact is, according to Christianity, we’re all sinners, and the only way we can get to Heaven is through Jesus Christ. A sin is a sin. Some are not worse than others, although we as humans like to think there are “levels” of sin. We all stumble, every day, and we need to turn to G-d for forgiveness instead of turning away from Him.

  • jondaris

    No, it really shouldn’t.

  • francoamerian

    Why do you say that?

  • francoamerian

    Why would they need to do a publicity stunt when the show is already the highest rated show on cable TV?

  • jondaris

    Freedom of speech means the government can’t punish you for what you say. A private employer certainly has the right to dismiss you.

  • mikrat

    Well now that they have everyone so worried about the outcome of a “Reality” TV Show… What “laws” are they passing without your knowledge?

    Don’t worry sheeple – there is plenty of shitty lite beer left down at the corner store and i bet you can still put together a fantasy football team.

    Carry On.

  • Ollie

    It appears so, as the world is hell bent on silencing the Christians voice and embraces the Muslims hate all the way up the the WH!

  • Brian West

    Commercial free speech isn’t free and is regulated. The judicial system uses a list of criteria to separate it from personal free speech, although it seems to apply to advertising rather than the personal opinions of a spokesperson.
    A business does have the right to discipline or terminate a employee for comments made in a public forum, if they can prove those comments reflect poorly on their brand and loses profits as a result. I don’t agree with it, but that’s the truth.
    The funny thing is that I think time will prove that A&E is going to lose more profits by suspending Phil than they would of they just issued a release staying that they dint agree with his views and don’t reflect the views of the network, then left it at that.

  • Jim Alameda

    Like the Bible say in the end days, bad would be good and good would be bad, girls would be like boys, boys like girls, we can see it for sure in America now? I stand for Truth I would stand beside Phil from Duck Dynasty if needed.

  • Jim Alameda

    The problem is not who we love or how good we love or what we Love? its if we believe there is a God of this universe, if you don’t believe there’s a God, speaking about what words a man used is a freedom of speech problem really. The man was ask a question and he answered it.

  • Madam Vonkook

    While I am not a a Christian and I do not agree with Mr.Robertsons statements I think that there is a big difference in condemning what the man said and banishing him!The man is 67 year old raised in the deep south who is a self proclaimed born again Christian is anyone really surprised ?He was asked he gave his truthful opinion!Go ask your grandpa what he thinks of gay marriage ?should we banish grandpa?Just as gay people deserve the freedom to be who they are so do 67 year old fundamentalist Christians from the deep south!Political correctness has made us forget or value personal liberty and the first amendment right to free speech!

  • Dona Kitty Lawson Cross

    Some folks know just enough scripture to be dangerous. The passages in Matthew were referring to the Jewish leaders who practiced the letter of the law without understanding the essence of the law. They also avoided taking care of their needy family members but counted seeds to be in compliance with tithing laws. They practiced elaborate public prayers and cheated in private. No- where in scripture are Christians told to avoid public profession and practice of faith. We are in fact instructed to do EVERYTHING unto the Lord.

  • Justin

    Hellya !! They want gay/lesbian rights FINE !! Then let those that have differing opinions have that RIGHT to speak their mind just the SAME !!!!
