    The ironic thing here is many of you that are so deeply pissed off by this have tried repeatedly to silence me on here when I had a differing opinion. In reality it is exactly the same thing because you didn't like what I had to say.

    Not at all. You TOTALLY misread my point. All of you that tried to silence me or get me booted off from here that are now pissed off about Phil Robertson being placed on indefinite hiatus are guilty of trying to do what A&E did. The difference is I am not famous and very few have come to my defense. I don't want sympathy or a battle, but the facts are either you support free speech for everyone or you are a hypocrite. It is really that simple.

    By the way, did you read where I said that I believe in free speech even if what is said is something I don't agree with? Show me were i posted one negative thing about the Duck Dynasty Patriarch. you can't because I didn't I actuallysupported his right to say whatever he wants to.


    You have to join here to comment we all do . This is sort of like a club an if you dont fit in then to bad. You will get treated poorly sort of if you dont like it here leave type deal no one needs to stand up for your rights or your beliefs. If people dont like what you say as member of a group they will speak out even if your 100% correct on a subject . Here you have no constitutional rights if the administrators don't like what your saying they can ban you with no real reason an you cant do any thing about it. None of us here allowed to say any thing we want.

    I don't have a problem with people disagreeing with me, I never did. But YOU are one of them that tried to silence me by having me boted off from here. How is that protecting free speech? Explain how that is any different than A&E removing Phil Robertson?

    Seriously, you went on and on for days talking about explicit gay sex on here even after all kinds of people asked you to stop.


    Now if the rest of the world feels Gunco has treated you unfairly an are boycotting the site then that would be a more direct comparison to whats going on .

    And there in lies your complete and utter hypocrisy. you believe only in free speech you agree with. You do realize that is not free speech.

    The difference with Phils remarks is he is speaking his religious beliefs to the world an is a US citizen an private company is trying to silence him. Lots of people like what he has to say an he is getting mass support . A&E has the right to fire his ass just like any one of us could be banned here .

    The point you are making here is so absolutely ridiculously indefensible and convoluted that I can't believe that even you wrote it. Free speech is either free speech or it isn't, how much more simple could it be than that?

    Again I m not looking for a battle or want to derail this thread to deal with yours or others issues .

    But by what you have posted here you absolutely agree with censorship. Yet you are battling against it t the same time.

    Look, I don't have to agree with someone to understand that free speech is either free for everyone or it truly isn't free for anyone.

    I honestly believe that A&E is biting the hand that feeds them and they completely over reacted to this. The public outcry leaves A&E little wiggle room to save face. From the start I believed that the show would not go on on A&E without Phil Robertson and some other network will jump on it soon enough. It may call for a name change for the show but I believe it will go on whether on A&E or not.

    The Robertsons could jump ship but they may have to wait a year or so because of the contract between them and A&E network. They could file suit to break the contract or buy it out and then move on but A&E would likely try to stop them (similar to a "no compete clause"). Of course they could always be "guests" as celebs on other shows and keep their faces in the public eye until they are free and clear to start a new series on another network.

    I wonder if there is any deflimation of character by his being suspended or any thing that could cause a damage suit by Phil? I mean A$E has a right to there opinion an if the feel Phil does not represent here values they can not use him . How ever they have tied to make Phill look bad at the same time .

    I find it ridicules that A&E is so offended but have no Issue continuing to air the shows already recorded . I think A&E has vastly miscalculated who needs who here.

    even the media cant do spin control on this . I dont see any one supporting A&E on this form other media sources .

    I think we all have the same opinion on gays, so for me enough said on that topic. What we need to concentrate on now is showing the sponsors of A&E network that the normal "God fearing" person means business. Here is a preliminary list of A&E sponsors - hit 'm where it hurts.

    Now about the actual topic
    I find it amusing that in two days there are 1.5 million signatures an post boycotting A&E on face book and in three months there are 350,000 signed up for Obamacare.

    Heck phil is being pushed for president . An right now is more popular than any other republican . hell Obama got elected because he was different .
