“Duck Dynasty’s” Phil Robertson is not alone. He’s the latest in a long, long lineup of politically incorrect targets of the left’s sensitivity mob. Founded in 1985, the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD) gangstas won’t stop until both the cultural and legal enforcement of their agenda are the norm.
The A&E network (Atheists & Elitists) suspended the reality TV patriarch and self-made businessman on Wednesday for the Biblical views he expressed in an interview with GQ. Robertson was asked by the liberal magazine what he viewed as sinful. Drawing on the condemnation of sexual immorality in Corinthians 6:9, he cited “adulterers, the idolaters, the male prostitutes, the homosexual offenders, the greedy, the drunkards, the slanderers, the swindlers — they won’t inherit the kingdom of God.”
Robertson’s punishable transgressions? Responding honestly to a question posed to him (this was not an unsolicited “anti-gay rant”; it was a response) and abiding by his Christian faith. GLAAD’s P.C. Praetorian Guard sprung into repressive action. The same group that initially gave f-word-spouting, homophobic liberal Alec Baldwin a pass accused Robertson of uttering “some of the vilest and most extreme statements” against “LGBT people” ever. (They should listen to the Koran-inspired executioners’ rants of gay-hanging and gay-stoning Iranian mullahs sometime.) GLAAD also railed against Robertson’s “vile” preference for female anatomy over male as if it were an international human rights violation.
