High Powered Fans of Phil Robertson and Duck Dynasty Flock to Their Defense
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
Other Robertson supporters have taken to social media to call for a boycott of network A&E, using the Twitter hashtag #ISupportPhil.
Phil Robertson isn’t a “gay-hater”…C’mon, people.#thatisall
