Would love for the Robertsons to flip the bird at A&E, but tough to do with a signed contract.

As a global media content company, A+E Networks’ core values are centered around creativity, inclusion and mutual respect.

That's why they tried to crush someone who dared to creatively say something they didn't agree with. That's why they decided to exclude a man who actually believes this stuff. That's why they elected to disrespect the man.

I’m cynical. Maybe it was a ploy to boost ratings all along.

How much time is left on their contract?

"We will also use this moment to launch a national public service campaign (PSA) promoting unity, tolerance and acceptance among all people, a message that supports our core values as a company, and the values found in Duck Dynasty. These PSAs will air across our entire portfolio."

"In addition, an A&E source says the family and the network are going to work together to promote tolerance moving forward."

Great, so they will run PSA's pushing fags as normal during the show and the family will help promote tolerance.

sigh...

A HUGE “in-Your-Face” to the Gay Fascists, but they love that kind of thing, don’t they?

There was a groundswell building, like the Chik-fil-a backlash.

A&E CAVES: PHIL ROBERTSON BACK ON 'DUCK DYNASTY'

Hehe you do realize Phil won this right?

He didn’t apologize for one. single. thing.

In fact last Sunday he doubled down on his remarks
at his church. And A&E is putting him back on.

They had NO choice.

He didn’t go on an apology tour. He didn’t
seek out Gay activists to work with.

This statement from A&E is mere window dressing.
Nothing will change.

BTW- I don’t really remember anything in the quote where Phil talked about gay people. He said he preferred women and didn’t understand the other choice and he listed sins.

Ca-ching!

A&E got a week of free publicity.

They are expecting the new season opener to have a significantly large increase in viewership.

A&E is laughing all the way to the bank.

I wonder how much of the merchandise A&E owns, if any. I have seen things like they do own some of it, but not anything with a good source.

If A&E does own something, yeeesh—way to stick it to the man. Supposedly all that duck dynasty stuff was flying off the shelves just in time for Christmas.

According to the window dressing, the family will now be promoting “tolerance” and A&E will run PSA’s across their platform (i.e. during the show) promoting sexual deviants.

Welcome back? Robertson never left. A&E showed episodes with Robertson in all of them.

This is a farce.

He certainly will be followed closely on his comments from this point forward. Will be interesting to see if Phil pushes the topic and force A&E’s into a corner.

He's already done a great job of promoting tolerance of Christian beliefs. Keep it up, Phil!

Never happened. But it's good to see Gay&E bow to reality. So to speak.

I guess we will see. I sure hope it doesn’t mean they cave to the gay agenda and be tolerant in the DD episodes.

Customers supported Chick-fil-A but the Chik-fil-A executives did not fight back. Don Cathy went into hiding and the corporate execs cowered behind their desks.

Trying to be an optimistic sort, I’m hoping that the firing of Papa Duck represented the high water mark of the homosexual agenda.

I am greatly troubled by the likely “pro-butt screw” ads they will force on people to “counter” Phil.

Why aren't “pro-butt screw” shows required to air PSAs that promote Christian values?

Folks, this frankly is not good. Just wait until the ads roll and your kids are watching them while you are out.
