The Stalinists have terrorized the A&E network.
The “A&E” standing for “Arts and Entertainment” — an industry that depends on free speech for its very existence. No irony there.
In case you just returned from deepest Siberia, last night word broke that the network has suspended Duck Dynasty’s Phil Robertson for the politically incorrect interview he gave to GQ. Among things he opined that in his view “bestiality, sleeping around with this woman and that woman and that woman and those men” is a sin.
Note: contrary to the headlines, he did not compare being gay to bestiality. He rattled off a list of things he thought a sin. One of them, note again, involved heterosexual men who are “sleeping around with this woman and that woman.”
Right on cue the American Chapter of Stalinists — this time it’s the GLAAD division — instantly jumped in to defend heterosexual men and defend our right to sleep with “this woman and that woman.” Hats off to GLAAD for….oh…oops…sorry. GLAAD didn’t give a rats rear end about defending heterosexual men from Phil Robertson’s anti-heterosexual playboy rant.
