It took less than 2 weeks for A&E to crack:
“The A&E channel said it’s reversing its decision to drop “Duck Dynasty” patriarch Phil Robertson from the show for his remarks about gays.
In a statement Friday, A&E said it decided to bring Robertson back after discussions with the Robertson family and “numerous advocacy groups.”
The channel had put Robertson on what it called “hiatus” following his comments in a magazine article about how the Bible informs his view of gays.
His comments were slammed by groups including GLAAD, the gay media watch organization. But A&E’s decision drew a backlash from those who said they supported Robertson’s comments and others who defended him on the basis of freedom of speech.”
A&E has been running show marathons for the last week, or a very funny way of showing their displeasure with Granpa Phil!
Can we now get serious and talk about real problems?
Like violence in Venezuela?
“The Venezuelan Violence Observatory estimates that 24,763 killings occurred this year, pushing up the homicide rate to 79 per 100,000 inhabitants. It was 73 per 100,000 people in 2012. In 1998, the rate was 19.”
The latest Obama Care problems?
“Some patients who think they have insurance may not get insurance cards on time, and they’re afraid they might fall through the cracks. “
Frankly, I thought that this whole “Duck” story was an intentional distraction from the Obama Care mess and growing disillusionment with President Obama.
