    So, I've never seen a single episode of Duck Dynasty, but isn't the show ultimately about backwater hicks? Seems like this was inevetable. A&E saying, 'Well since you said outloud what everyone probably had an inkling about, we're going to cut you off' is kind of a ridiculous decision.

    What about freedom of speech? Im not religious, and dont agree with what he said, but its his right to say what he believes.

    That's where I'm at. He's a bible thumper. We all knew that. He just said what we were inferring.

    Frankly though, I don't care. Like me, he pretty much said live and let live. And if someone asks, he'll tell them about the bible. He's not shoving photos of dead babies in my face at a pro-life rally I happen to be passing.

    I wouldn't even call what he said hateful. He simply stated that it says x, x, and x in the bible, and I believe in it. Should I be up in arms because he said promiscuity is sin? This PC nation is breeding a group of butt hurt pussies that just can't understand that their might be two views on a subject.

    It's the idea of a brand in consumer america is all. That's all duck dynasty is now. I'll laugh once in a while at a jebism or somethign uncle si says, but I really don't care.

    Propping up your family for tv is rough regardless and probably is said in the bible to be bad if you want to infer it that way.

    Freedom of speech yes - but only if it falls within the values of your parent company which bows to the almighty advertising dollar. He can say whatever the hell he wants but that doesn't mean that A&E has to keep paying him.

    I have freedom of speech but if I were to say something out of line (determined by my school board) you can bet that I would be out of my classroom in a heartbeat. There are a ton of cases it happening.

    Freedom of speech guarantees you can not be arrested for what you say.

    oh, wait, yes you can... it's called hate speech.

    do we even have a constitution any more any way? f'ing libtards

    Exactly, I don't agree with what he said, but I don't need every person , everywhere to agree with me on every issue that exist. Can I get the Kardashians kicked off the air because I find their existence offensive?

    I am not exactly sure but I don't think you can be arrested for "hate speech" you can be arrested for harassment. As far as I can recall the only thing that is not really protected under general free speech is something deemed "obscene" like Two Live Crew and causing a panic like yelling fire in a crowded theater. On a side note once you enter an educational building your "free" speech is also somewhat restricted as outlined in the Tinker vs. Des Moines school board case.

    They're about as equivalent as the dynasty crew. Both have videos of what they're good at.

    That's harsh. These guys built a multi-million dollar company on a duck call. They could be dropped in the woods and survive. The K crew fell ass backwards into money that they didn't earn and would die if they got lost in NYC without a cell signal.

    Not to mention overall, general behavior. Something is wrong when a man quoting his religious book of preference gets people more up in arms than a sex tape, 72 day wedding, and getting knocked up before the divorce goes through. I don't like organized religion in any sense of the word and I can still see that something is fucking wrong.

    I'm just pointing out the similarities. They both put their families in front of the camera and are BRANDS. They're selling products. THey have to be PC if they want to keep pimping their brands.

    I was referring to the duck and buck commander films that got them famous and on tv in the first place.



    The biggest thing that is annoying is, why do we care what his opinion is? I don't care. I dont' agree, but that doesn't matter. The show will go on.
