DrRosen DrRosen:
I suppose I have to spend more time around here to expect to get to know all the various posters but a quick perusal of this Fiddledog person's posts tells me that he/she is the resident nutjob, right?


Looking for friends are you? No problem. You'll find no shortage of progressive haters, name-callers, and other fanatics to join up with here. If your intention is to look for the weak link to practice your name-calling, feel free to line up and fill your boots. I'll find the time to flip you around with the rest of them using my patented style of the odd wink, tempered with supported argument and common sense.

For example...

Oh, NFD, THAT coming from you is really hilarious :D :D

Just because some of us think A&E made a business decision that we respect, we are 'haters' and 'hate America(ns)', and you think WE are name callers?

Darlin', you are full of shit :D (no opinion. Fact :) )

Your point appears to be you're not a hater, and to prove it you'll show me how much you hate me, to which I can only answer, Huh?

However, I suggest you take your own advice from the last sentence and get back on topic.

Here's an interesting one. It appears the bully network that picked a fight with the Robertson's made a mistake. The bullied are showing they are tired of being pushed around. They are pushing back.

A&E now has a new set of problems the network was not expecting.

$1:
The Duckathon continues through the weekend, showing no signs of slowing down. In the wake of A&E’s somewhat suicidal business decision (more on that below), another voice has weighed in on the situation. The Sheriff of Douglas County – home to the Duck Dynasty crew – is no longer interested in doing any business with the network.

The suspension of “Duck Dynasty” star Phil Robertson by the A&E Network after making controversial remarks in GQ magazine regarding homosexuality has been called a business decision. But now Douglas County Sheriff Phil Miller is making a business decision of his own.

Miller announced on his personal Facebook page Friday night that A&E would no longer be welcomed to film or produce any of its programs or series with the help of the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office or its facilities…

“I know it will not matter to A&E, but it will make me feel better. A&E has produced more than a half dozen programs with the assistance of the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office. They will not do any more with my assistance while I am sheriff. It is time for someone other than Hollywood and the news media to stand up for what is right!”

I’m not sure if it “won’t matter” to A&E that the Sheriff’s department will no longer cooperate with them. Assuming the show continues at all, reality series rely on that full range of “local flavor” to bring their stories to life. In the case of this show, just as with many other such series like Moonshiners, local law enforcement can be a part of that tapestry. It may not shut down production entirely, but it certainly doesn’t help. (And that’s not even going into questions about getting film permits or how much of a blind eye the law will turn to disruptions caused during filming, etc.)

From a broader perspective, a few offerings from Rick Moran at the American Thinker.

I don’t think we’ve seen this kind of backlash against the coercive imposition of public speech codes before. The opposition goes far beyond the evangelical community to become an issue with many other Christian churches.

Beyond the religious aspect, there is a cultural facet to the controversy. The GQ “profile” of Robertson was a hit piece – smarmy, snarky, and subtly dismissive. Many Americans are equally perturbed by the elitist and superior attitude found in the GQ article – holding Robertson out to be a typical ignorant red neck not worthy of being taken seriously by the smart folks in coastal America.

Hard to say what will become of this controversy. GLAAD is raising money hand over fist and is suffering no ill effects for its PC policing of speech. Perhaps the flap has awoken middle America and they will now begin to fight back against the stifling of free speech and freedom of religion that goes along with it.

On a more general note, I have to wonder what A&E is thinking about their decision at this point. They’ve surely noticed that their ratings – particularly for their last weekend marathon – have been down since this situation blew up. Curiously, I was seeing some of the most liberal people on Twitter – particularly ones who like to refer to Robertson as “hateful, homophobic, bigoted” etc. – crowing over the ratings drop. Seriously? They seem to think that a drop in viewers must reflect some sort of judgement by the audience rejecting Robertson’s opinions.

That’s the part which is so puzzling to me, and it’s something I believe A&E should have taken into account before acting. While I’m not sure there are any measurable metrics to check on this, I don’t think the people complaining about Robertson are Duck Dynasty’s target demographic which provided their record breaking ratings. Do you really imagine that there is an army of Pajama Boys out there, snuggling up in their Slankets with a cup of cocoa to binge watch a season of Duck Dynasty? To the contrary, if the ratings are falling I would imagine that it’s Robertson’s defenders turning off A&E in droves.

Either way, the Douglas County Sheriff’s Department decision is only the latest in a string of bad press stories for A&E. This looks like short sighted, poor planning on their part, and it will likely hit them hardest over the long run right where it hurts the most… in the wallet. But hey, that’s just capitalism in action, folks.

HATE you? Like I said before, I don't hate, that is a wasted emotion. I think you are a dumb shit, sure, but hate you? Nah, don't flatter yourself, sweetie :)

Nah, I'm done with Phil Robertson. He doesn't deserve the attention he is getting.

progressive haters

Is that a progressive who hates or someone who hates progressives? You sure like your labels, eh?

Looking at your posting history, you seem an expert on hatred. But despite your claim, I haven't found anything resembling common sensee from you. Alot of climate change denial. I didn't realize there were any deniers around any more; viewed much the same the way the Flat Earth Society are by those of us with any actual common sense.

I don't even know if we get that channel but I think hunting shows suck and I don't care what that guy says. However... this thread has been a fun read. :D Happy Sunday! [B-o]

All your posts NDog are confirming my suspicion that this is a setup. A&E wants more viewers and they're courting the right wing hateocracy to get them.


So you mean this is all my fault then? [?]

It sounds like you're saying I personally am engaged in a conspiracy to build the audience on what is already the most popular reality show in the history of television.

Uh yeah...OK. And again the only guys spreading hate are the left. Who are the right hurting by thinking as follows?

I support A&E's right to fire this homophobic twat.

Fiddle seriously your making yourself look foolish with these pics of yours you keep posting because every single one makes an argument that your "leftist opponent" which you made up says one thing is ok and another isn't.

You have this magical imagine of some person who is ok with Miley Cyrus, hateful remarks from it gets better, Mohammad Ahmadinejad, is ok with Obama lying about tons of unethical spying and jailing of people, but somehow is offended by this one guys anti gay speech?

What the hell planet are you on? Of course we all find the entire list offensive and stupid. A quick look around the forums here are more then enough to confirm that .

Your arguing against some straw man that isn't even in the room that's why everyone's calling you crazy. Your like the old guy yelling at his invisible nemesis in the wall.

Wonder what FD thinks of how Natalie Mains was treated when she exercised her free speech?

As for Miley Cyrus - first pic I've seen of her "exposing herself." If that's called exposing yourself, we must live in Victorian times - looks like a pretty normal bikini to me.

Um Andy I think the word your looking for is grope not expose.

I won't even do the justice of putting that in proper html video brackets but feel free to see what junk she's actually putting out there.
