Huge backlash mounts over suspension of ‘Duck Dynasty’ star Phil Robertson

For a few hours, it looked like Americans would quietly accept the suspension of popular “Duck Dynasty” star Phil Robertson for his unfiltered opinions about sin, sex, gays and blacks in a magazine interview.

But then, as if on cue, hundreds of thousands of fans of the openly Christian, duck-hunting businessman took to social networks and started their backlash.

As of Thursday night, more than 1.1 million people “liked” the “Stand With Phil Robertson” Facebook page, while about the same number had clicked their support for another Facebook page called “Boycott A&E Until Phil Robertson Is Put Back On Duck Dynasty.” There was even flak on the Web page of the gay advocacy group that demanded his firing.

The family itself is backing Mr. Robertson and implied Thursday evening that the show may be canceled, or at a minimum moved off the A&E Network unless he can return.

“We are disappointed that Phil has been placed on hiatus for expressing his faith, which is his constitutionally protected right. We have had a successful working relationship with A&E but, as a family, we cannot imagine the show going forward without our patriarch at the helm,” the Robertsons wrote on their website,

    A&E is in business and the more people complain to them and their sponcers the faster they will recant! I’m sure they are scrambling to put him back on–as it’s always about money–the person who sided with the gay group should lose HIS/HER job–you have to wonder if the person is gay themselves?!?

    We need to stand up against THE MINORITY who are trying to run our lives so I’m glad that people have responded to this outrage! If they don’t like it then don’t listen or read it buy WE LIKED IT BETTER WHEN YOU PEOPLE WERE IN THE CLOSET INSTEAD OF BULLYING US WITH YOUR LIFE STYLE!

    The left is all about tolerance until it comes to something they don’t like, i.e., Christians, The Constitution, etc.

    I do not comprehend how this Disqus works,after I thought I had logged in,then it keeps asking stupid questions, like do you have an account already.Does anyone else have trouble logging in? Anyways,here goes again.I wanted to say,this is a prime example of just how the liberal, leftist media wants to stifle any thought other than their own.I can guarantee you if it would have been someone espousing the gay life style,there would have been hi-fives & cum-bey-la la singing & dancing in the studio or newsroom.I am sick of them,finally if someone DARES to have a thought that is not in lock-step with their demented line of thinking, they can’t take it. Looks like pure,UN-adulterated communism to me.They want COMPLETE control of what we think,what we see on TV, & every phase of our lives.I never thought I would see anything near what I am seeing in the land of the free & the home of the brave.They are here & their aim is to destroy the country we grew up in.
