… Rev. Jesse Jackass with a CheapShot …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Friday,December 27th,2013

.. comparing what is happening to ” Duck Dynasty ” star Phil Robertson to ” White Privilege . ” …

.. What a crock ! Considering the way that Jesse Jackson has operated virtually all of his adult life [race – hustler , blackmailer , extorter] , he is in no position to criticize anyone for anything . To be honest , he should be in prison , right alongside his namesake [his son , Jesse Jr.] because of the crimes and offenses that he has committed down through the years .

… #IStandWithPhil [Robertson] …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Thursday,December 26th,2013

.. why don’t you ??

.. I just signed the petition . No , I am not a regular A&E network viewer . I do watch it once in a rare while . I just have a great deal of other interests , including this blog , chess , my faith [Roman Catholicism] , etc.. .

.. What happen to Phil is outrageous . A&E may well be a progressive – oriented network , but they knew what they were getting into when they desired to put ” Duck Dynasty ” on the air . It already was (in local syndication , i believe) on the air , and those dummies at the network should have known what they were getting into when they decided to pick up the show .

.. Also , in the internet age , there had to be plenty of youtube & other stuff available to look at . They knew what might be coming , and chickened out to bullying from G.L.A.A.D. and other militant gay and lesbian lobbies ..

.. for those who are not sure on the website , here is a link to it …

… the A & E Network has a Helluva Problem on Its Hands …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Sunday,December 22nd,2013

.. the problem is one of their own making , and it is their problem to solve .

.. they knew of the Robertson family ‘ s beliefs . They knew that they were conservative , Christian , and pretty well fundamentalist when they picked up the show in the first place . They have no excuses .

.. Also , G.L.A.A.D. is behaving like a bunch of fascist bullies . They are not the ” Thought Police . ” It is not up to them to decide who appears on T.V. and who does not . They are not any network ‘ s ” Standards & Practices ” division .

.. They also have endangered a profitable franchise that draws quite a bit of attention to their network . The Robertsons have made it quite clear that they will not continue on without Phil , their patriarch …

.. So , what does they do ? …

… Nice Shot , Hurricane Camille ! [Paglia]

Posted by paulfromwloh on Saturday,December 21st,2013

.. she is amazin ‘ ..

.. Camille Paglia has been around on the scene quite a while . Just as long , you cannot quite peg where she will come down on an issue .

.. Yes , she is a proud and raging liberal . However , she is an old – school liberal , all in the sense of the word . She says what she thinks , and has more balls [yes , BALLS] that almost any other public figure that I know of on the public stage . She will not back down to anyone , repeat anyone .

.. Conservatives would be wise to think that she is on our side . She is not . Often , she is not , but often as much , she is . She is old school …

.. She let fly on the ” Duck Dynasty ” controversy . Boy , oh boy , did she ever …

“I speak with authority here, because I was openly gay before the ‘Stonewall rebellion,’ when it cost you something to be so. And I personally feel as a libertarian that people have the right to free thought and free speech,” Paglia, a professor at the University of the Arts in Philadelphia, said on Laura Ingraham’s radio show Thursday.

“In a democratic country, people have the right to be homophobic as well as they have the right to support homosexuality — as I one hundred percent do. If people are basing their views against gays on the Bible, again they have a right of religious freedom there,” she added.

Robertson has been suspended from Duck Dynasty due to comments he made to GQ that have been deemed “anti-gay.” According to Paglia, the culture has become too politically correct.

“To express yourself in a magazine in an interview — this is the level of punitive PC, utterly fascist, utterly Stalinist, OK, that my liberal colleagues in the Democratic Party and on college campuses have supported and promoted over the last several decades,” Paglia said. “This is the whole legacy of free speech 1960’s that have been lost by my own party.”

Paglia went on to point out that while she is an atheist she respects religion and has been frustrated by the intolerance of gay activists.
