PROGRESSIVE DOUBLE STANDARD: DUCK DYNASTY PATRIARCH DISCUSSES RELIGION AND PHIL ROBERTSON IS PLACED ON ‘HIATUS,’ GAY ANDERSON COOPER DISCUSSES HIS MOTHER’S ORAL SEX ACT ON CNN AND IT’S BUSINESS AS USUAL?
Good news that A&E responded to the outpouring of support for Phil Robertson and “Duck Dynasty” …
A&E Welcomes Phil Robertson Back to 'Duck Dynasty' -- Less than two weeks after his anti-gay remarks prompted an "indefinite hiatus" for the reality patriarch — and a strong fan backlash — the network says he will remain on the series.
An A&E statement to The Hollywood Reporterread:
As a global media content company, A+E Networks' core values are centered around creativity, inclusion and mutual respect. We believe it is a privilege for our brands to be invited into people’s home and we operate with a strong sense of integrity and deep commitment to these principals.
That is why we reacted so quickly and strongly to a recent interview with Phil Robertson. While Phil’s comments made in the interview reflect his personal views based on his own beliefs, and his own personal journey, he and his family have publicly stated they regret the “coarse language” he used and the mis-interpretation of his core beliefs based only on the article. He also made it clear he would “never incite or encourage hate.” We at A+E Networks expressed our disappointment with his statements in the article, and reiterate that they are not views we hold.
But Duck Dynasty is not a show about one man's views. It resonates with a large audience because it is a show about family… a family that America has come to love. As you might have seen in many episodes, they come together to reflect and pray for unity, tolerance and forgiveness. These are three values that we at A+E Networks also feel strongly about.
So after discussions with the Robertson family, as well as consulting with numerous advocacy groups, A&E has decided to resume filming Duck Dynasty later this spring with the entire Robertson family.
We will also use this moment to launch a national public service campaign (PSA) promoting unity, tolerance and acceptance among all people, a message that supports our core values as a company, and the values found in Duck Dynasty. These PSAs will air across our entire portfolio. <Source>
Notice that the Hollywood Reporter slanted the headline by claiming Phil Robertson’s remarks were “anti-gay” rather than “pro-Christianity” as they were intended. Note also A&E’s statement regarding coarse language – perhaps because Phil Robertson used the words “vagina,” “anus,” and “bestiality.”
So how will they treat Anderson Cooper’s on-air remarks about his mother and oral sex? Will he get a pass because he is openly gay?
Anderson Cooper Discusses His Mother and ‘Cunnilingus’
CNN was doing one of those year in review segments, and Cooper asked Dan Savage for what he thought was a really good scandal story this year. Savage had to go with the amazing saga of Rob Ford, and said, “I love a good cunnilingus joke on the evening news.”
Everyone (especially Andrew Sullivan) burst out laughing, and that’s when Cooper decided to over-share.
“My mom once wrote a romance memoir about men she had dated–and I use that term loosely–and she described one guy she was currently dating––my mom was 85 at the time––as the Nijinsky of cunnilingus. And she made me proofread the book.”
In case you did not know, Cooper’s mother was the socialite heiress Gloria Vanderbilt. And, if you want to be shocked, it turns out that Anderson Cooper spent two summers as an intern for the CIA – known to recruit wealthy Northeastern liberals from prestigious schools (Cooper went to Yale), many of them gay. Ditto our State Department.
Funny about those PSAs (Public Service Announcements) ... A&E cites "unity, tolerance, and acceptance among all people" -- while the progressive socialist agenda is to divide people into classes based on real or imagined grievances and pit them against others in order to gain or maintain political power. I wonder if companies and consultants affiliated with those "advocacy groups" will be providing input. I can only hope that these advocacy groups, such as the one headed by master race-baiter Jesse Jackson will not see a nickle of the money that Duck Dynasty has earned for A&E.
Bottom line …
The progressive mainstream media has a selective double standard and sense of media “outrage.” By conditioning the news that the “low information” voter will see on mainstream news, they push their liberal progressive socialist agenda forward along with candidates who do not represent ALL of the citizens of America.
Now, I am not suggesting that CNN suspend Anderson Cooper or place him on ‘hiatus’ for his coarse language or insulting his mother’s memory, he has every right to say what he wants. But, it is curious that his remarks came while on his own program rather than an off-program remark like Phil Robertson of Duck Dynasty.”
But, then again, double standards and switched-on moral outrage are a few of the hallmarks of progressive socialist democrats and their grievance industry among others such as political correctness, moral equivalency, multi-culturalism, and blindness to the vast silent majority.
