Sadie Robertson Gets Second Highest Score On First Night Of ‘DWTS

 

 

 

 

 

 

” Reality television star Sadie Robertson and her partner Mark Ballas got the second highest score of the night during Monday’s first episode of the 19th season of Dancing With The Stars.

  The Duck Dynasty alum and Ballas got 34 out of 40 points for their Cha Cha Cha dance to Katy Perry‘s song “Birthday.”

  In a clip shown before the pair’s performance, Robertson said her dancing skills have been limited to the mirror in her room thus far because she’s not allowed to dance in school. Luckily, Ballas — who has won the dancing competition 15 times — brought out her best moves for Monday’s routine.”

Political Timidity & Clerical Cowardice

 

 

” When an attempt was made to railroad George Zimmerman into prison for defending himself when assaulted, most conservatives fell silent, and some joined the lynch mob — and, to the best of my knowledge, not a single public official stood up to denounce what was going on.

  More recently, when A&E suspended Phil Robertson of Duck Dynasty for having the effrontery to repeat age-old Christian doctrine in an interview with GQ, Sarah Palin, Bobby Jindal, and Ted Cruz let A&E have it. But the Republican establishment was present and accounted for only in its absence from the scene.

  Moreover, when Mark Steyn blasted GLAAD in his inimitable way for trying to shut down public discourse, his editor at National Review Online took offense and went after him. Mark, being Mark,knew how to respond, and others at NRO have since rallied to his support. But I am nonetheless struck by the timidity on the right.

  Even more to the point, however, I am really struck by the silence of the clergy. We can debate whether what Phil Robertson said was right or wrong, but the priests and ministers of the various Christian sects profess precisely what he said, and they have been ostentatiously silent. “

                                                … is the reason for our present state of affairs and he is correct , at least in part .

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

‘Duck Dynasty’ Ratings Plummet After A&E Boycott

 

 

” According to the latest television ratings numbers, “Duck Dynasty,” which held the top spot on cable television’s list with 8.885 million viewers in weeks prior, dropped to only 2.521 million viewers overnight. That’s a 71.6% decrease, enough to prove to A&E that their decision will have serious implications on their viewership.

  If “Duck Dynasty” ratings continue to fall, A&E may very well be rethinking their decision to jeopardize the future of the show. In August, the Season 4 premier of the show garnered 11.8 million viewers, setting a record for the most-watched nonfiction television series in the process.”

Here Is The Complete Apology From Their Facebook Page 

 

 

 

Dear Cracker Barrel Customer:

” When we made the decision to remove and evaluate certain Duck Dynasty items, we offended many of our loyal customers. Our intent was to avoid offending, but that’s just what we’ve done.

  You told us we made a mistake. And, you weren’t shy about it. You wrote, you called and you took to social media to express your thoughts and feelings. You flat out told us we were wrong.

  We listened. 

  Today, we are putting all our Duck Dynasty products back in our stores. 

  And, we apologize for offending you.

  We respect all individuals right to express their beliefs. We certainly did not mean to have anyone think different.

  We sincerely hope you will continue to be part of our Cracker Barrel family. “

 

 

 

   You can make a difference . Should you feel the desire to voice your feelings here is the contact page for the Cracker Barrel management . They made a mistake , but at least they had the willingness to admit it and try to make amends . That’s more than most PC organizations can do . 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A&E Really Wanted To Tell You A Story ’Bout A Man Named Jed

 

 

 

 

 

 

” I’ve been learning more, over the past few days, about Duck Dynasty.

This narrative makes a lot of sense:

  Duck Dynasty is not the show that they wanted, it is the show that got away from them.

  It seems what the producers intended and what A&E envisioned with the show is much different than the show that they ended up with, but they didn’t do anything about it because it was so wildly popular and so wildly profitable. But even with all the money, they have never really been comfortable with what happened.

  This is what happened. The whole idea of the show was to parade these nouveau riche Christian hillbillies around so that we could laugh at them. “Look at them,” we were supposed to say. “Look how backward they are! Look what they believe! Can you believe they really live this way and believe this stuff? See how they don’t fit in? HAHAHA” “

 

 

  Who’ll have the last laugh now ? Hopefully the Robertson clan will tell A&E to pound sand .

Sheriff Takes A Stand Over Duck Dynasty; Announces Department Will No Longer Assist A&E During Filming

 

 

 

” Douglas County Sheriff Phil Miller posted the following statement on his personal Facebook page Friday announcing his own “business decision, saying, “It is time for someone other than Hollywood and the news media to stand up for what is right!”:

Cracker Barrel vs. Duck Dynasty

 

 

 

” If you think the A&E Network’s decision to indefinitely suspend the star of its cash cow “Duck Dynasty”made bad business sense, wait until you hear what Cracker Barrel did. Yesterday the restaurant chain that made its name and fortune on the appetites of Southern folk like Phil Robertson and the rest of his duck-calling entrepreneurial family decided to pull some “Duck Dynasty” merchandise from its stores.

  In a statement on its Facebook page, Cracker Barrel cited its “pleasing people” motto and its commitment to “the ideals of fairness, mutual respect and equal treatment of all people.” The company then explained why “Duck Dynasty” no longer may reflect those ideals:

  We continue to offer Duck Commander products in our stores. We removed selected products which we were concerned might offend some of our guests while we evaluate the situation. We continually evaluate the products we offer and will continue to do so.

 

  It didn’t take long for “Duck Dynasty” fans to voice their outrage to Cracker Barrel, which has more than 67,000 employees at its 600-plus stores. At last check, the Facebook statement had sparked more than 27,000 comments, most of them from regular diners who said they won’t be any longer. The post also has been shared more than 4,900 times, presumably by those same former customers telling their friends to boycott Cracker Barrel in the future.

  All of which made me wonder: Why would Cracker Barrel take this stand? The executives and corporate board members who run the chain surely know that most of the people who shop and eat at an “old country store and restaurant” are the enlightened rednecks who sided with the Robertsons. Yet Cracker Barrel decided to cast its lot with A&E, the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation, and the Human Rights Campaign.

  I found the answer in Cracker Barrel’s corporate history — not the filtered, flattering version the company tells but the version you can find via Google. The key finding: Cracker Barrel has been in trouble with homosexual rights activists before.”

 

 

Here is Cracker Barrel’s Facebook page along with a few comments re: Phil Robertson

 

” Jody Dixon After you are done removing the selected products, go ahead and remove a bunch of tables and chairs……you won’t be needing them any more.

  Michael Stover UNlike. Don’t cave in to the politically correct mob of left wing INtolerant fools. Stand for free speech, or risk losing lots of customers, like ME.

  Charlene Harrelson Griffin I have no problem passing on Cracker Barrel and heading to the nearest Chick-Fil-A from now on. “

Mark Steyn On ‘Duck Dynasty’ Controversy: Gay Lobby Enforcing ‘Ideological Compliance’

 

 

Steyn On Phil

” The syndicated columnist likened Robertson’s suspension from his A&E television program to something out of post-World War II Eastern Europe under Communist rule.

“ This is one of the biggest stories of our time – the strange need by the bureau of gay compliance or whatever the gay lobby group is calling itself these days and similar groups to enforce the most tedious ideological compliance,” he said. “It’s like something out of Milan Kundera’s Eastern European novel about post-war communist Europe, The Joke, where you make one little comment and your life is over. And we’re getting to that stage.” “

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Age Of Intolerance

 

 

 

” Duck Dynasty’s Phil Robertson, in his career-detonating interview with GQ, gave a rather thoughtful vernacular exegesis of the Bible’s line on sin, while carefully insisting that he and other Christians are obligated to love all sinners and leave it to the Almighty to adjudicate the competing charms of drunkards, fornicators, and homosexuals. Nevertheless, GLAAD — “the gatekeepers of politically correct gayness” as the (gay) novelist Bret Easton Ellis sneered — saw their opportunity and seized it. By taking out TV’s leading cable star, they would teach an important lesson pour encourager les autres — that espousing conventional Christian morality, even off-air, is incompatible with American celebrity.

  Some of my comrades, who really should know better, wonder why, instead of insisting Robertson be defenestrated, GLAAD wouldn’t rather “start a conversation.” But, if you don’t need to, why bother? Most Christian opponents of gay marriage oppose gay marriage; they don’t oppose the right of gays to advocate it. Yet thug groups like GLAAD increasingly oppose the right of Christians even to argue their corner. It’s quicker and more effective to silence them.”

GLENN BECK MAKES A VERY EXCITING OFFER TO THE CAST OF ‘DUCK DYNASTY’

 

 

” “Duck Dynasty on TheBlaze” has a nice ring to it, according to Glenn Beck.

  One day after Phil Robertson’s comments about homosexuality earned him an indefinite suspension from the hit series “Duck Dynasty” on A&E, Beck offered the entire Robertson family a place on his own network.

“ [All the other networks] will fold to pressure,” he said. “They will all fold to sponsors. They will all fold to money because they are all in over their eyeballs are debt … the only reason why Phil was put on hiatus and not the rest is because it is a money-printing machine.” “

” We want to thank all of you for your prayers and support.  The family has spent much time in prayer since learning of A&E’s decision.  We want you to know that first and foremost we are a family rooted in our faith in God and our belief that the Bible is His word.  While some of Phil’s unfiltered comments to the reporter were coarse, his beliefs are grounded in the teachings of the Bible. Phil is a Godly man who follows what the Bible says are the greatest commandments: “Love the Lord your God with all your heart” and “Love your neighbor as yourself.” Phil would never incite or encourage hate.We are disappointed that Phil has been placed on hiatus for expressing his faith, which is his constitutionally protected right.We have had a successful working relationship with A&E but, as a family, we cannot imagine the show going forward without our patriarch at the helm.  We are in discussions with A&E to see what that means for the future of Duck Dynasty.   Again, thank you for your continued support of our family.”

” We are extremely disappointed to have read Phil Robertson’s comments in GQ, which are based on his own personal beliefs and are not reflected in the series Duck Dynasty,” A&E said in a statement. “His personal views in no way reflect those of A+E Networks, who have always been strong supporters and champions of the LGBT community. The network has placed Phil under hiatus from filming indefinitely.” “

… And Is Now Poised To Become The Most Watched Cable Show EVER

 

Big guns: The stars of Duck Dynasty are competing with scripted shows such as The Walking Dead

 

” The unstoppable Duck Dynasty is on course to snatch cable TV’s ratings record from The Walking dead after 11.8 million viewers tuned in to watch the start of the new season.

The boss of A&E Network’s is cautiously optimistic that the hilarious exploits of a Louisiana family and their duck merchandise business still has plenty of room to grow.

With some ‘fun episodes coming down the pike’, the show needs just 600,000 more viewers to equal current record holder, zombie fest The Walking Dead, which recorded the highest ever ratings for a show of any kind when 12.4 million people tuned in earlier this year.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

‘Duck Dynasty’ Sets Cable Record

 

 

 

” On August 14, Duck Dynasty premiered its fourth season to the biggest audience ever for a nonfiction series on cable TV: 11.8 million viewers tuned in, according to A&E. Even more significantly, the premier swept in two key advertising demographics: 6.3 million in the 18-49 bracket, which broke down further to 3 million adults in the 18-34 demographic. Here’s another fun number for you: 37% of those watching the premier were first-time viewers, which is always a good sign for a show that’s no longer “fresh.” “
