If you'd never heard of Duck Dynasty before yesterday, you sure have now. Does anyone really believe A&E would sabotage their cash cow?
Disclaimer: I've never watched Duck Dynasty because we don't have cable. I did, however, have a pretty good take on what the show was about, and am well aware that people who I admire really like to watch it.
However, last night I had to explain to my hubby what the show was about. How many other people in this country are like my hubby? Probably millions.
Driven by GLAAD (Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation), A&E threw the patriarch of the Duck Dynasty family off the show for saying what the majority of people believe.
GLAAD called what Phil Robertson said about homosexuals "some of the vilest and most extreme statements uttered against LGBT people in a mainstream publication."
Really? I've got news for you GLAAD. Most people, when confronted with the reality of homosexual sex, are repulsed. It's ugly, dirty, and unhealthy. The whole "gay" lifestyle is ugly, dirty, and unhealthy.
Now ask yourself how many homosexuals are watching Duck Dynasty. Probably few to none. So why would A&E kowtow to what amounts to approximately 2% of the population who aren't even among their viewers? Could it be so they can pump up the viewership of what has become the most popular cable show of all time even higher, by putting it in the spotlight?
Thing is - it's going to backfire. Big time.
Want to know why?
Sure you do.
Because the sleeping giant in this country is finally waking up to what has been done to them. They're sick of the lies, the insults, and the craven immorality that has engulfed this nation.
They're tired of being called homophobes, haters, and stupid, and they're not going to take it anymore. They're tired of having their money stolen from them so people can have free abortions, sex change operations, and mental health care for people who probably wouldn't have mental health problems if they cleaned up their lives.
And GLAAD has outed itself for being the intolerant hate spewing organization it really is.
GLAAD, you've been used. How does it feel?
So A&E and GLAAD - bend over and take your reward.
