Default A&E caves on Phil Robertson

I wonder who is going to get fired over this fiasco.

Good news, I guess.

I've got mixed feelings about supporting A&E by watching any of their TV shows.

You just have no appreciation for high quality, red-neck television.

It looks like that unlike Phil, A&E won't stand up for their morals if it gets in the way of money.

Some one will have to fall on their sword at A&E. This and Cracker Barrel is the first of many push backs that are coming. Jesse Jackson is attacking Cracker Barrel as well. Jackson is the President of racist profiteering.

Well, I hate to admit it but one or two of their shows brought back some memories of this and that and things going "BLAM"! I like the Robertson humour well enough, I just have no use for censorship, esp. the progressive variety.

I enthusiastically disagree with your assessment of Longmire, which airs on A&E. I did not develop a liking for The Glades, though.

This just reenforces my belief Phil Robertson Is the FTF Person of The Year. Who do you know other than our Service Members who has stood up to our foes and won? You dont really have to like the show or Phil to "see what he's done here" and respect him for it!

That is sweet, the lessons learned here should really inspire us on FTF to fight the good fight and dont stop. Look back just a second and see what we all did to change an outcome that would have been buried and forgotten if we had just let that happen. Instead, people who enjoy and many who never even watched the show stood up and said sorry, we dont accept the sh!t sandwich your offering us! Kinda like when millions lined up for Chick Fil A sandwich's and drowned out the Faux anger-protestors they dwarfed 20 to 1. I bet my last dollar that more than a few rednecks in BDU's have attended church for the first time in years or ever because Phil has shown his Christian side to us without any fear he will be judged less manly or soft, thats awesome!

I dont like violence, we need to avoid those saying its time for civil war to get our Rights back! My Mantra has always been, "Hit them in the wallet, its all about the money", 10,000,000 wallets potentially closing up shook them up and quickly. They saw Cracker-barrel choke then beg for forgiveness, A&E was just about to lose the biggest show they have and got smart and backed down from this battle they sparked over nothing.

This was a non story, something much less than important that actually blew up and owned the airwaves over OB Care, Wars in the ME and even Christmas. Phil Robertson got more attention (and more respect) than the POTUS and all he did was answer a question by saying what he believed and stood by it instead of dancing and diving. Heres what he didnt do- he didnt jump out in front of every camera he could find and scream and yell, cry foul or file a class action lawsuit because his religious freedom had been impinged, he just sat back and let things play out, "turned the other cheek" so to speak.

No Moderation, no Compromise, no Senators, no courts, no taxes, fees or beer summits with BHO were needed to resolve our differences here! The outcome is we just learned how much power we have to effect an outcome. They really dont want us to know this but we can make them listen, all we have to do is speak with our money! So what do we do with this? Who is the next target? We cant just aim at all of them, that wont work. We need one Big Business that is anti 2A rights to crush like a bug, it sounds impossible but A&E, Cracker barrel and others arent small potatoes either and my guess is they wont be judging us again anytime soon!
