   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.”

Beck said as he sees it, the Robertson family has a choice to make.

“If I am in the Robertson family, I sit down with my family and say, ‘Is this the way we’re going to [let] him be treated? Is this who we are? Are we going to [be] quiet because he has an opinion about the scriptures?’”

Beck said that based on what he knows about the family, they’re not going to continue as though nothing happened. He went so far as to suggest that the entire family call GQ Magazine, where Robertson’s comments appeared, and tell them nothing but, “I agree with Phil.”

“You will either be out, or you will be the most powerful people the country has ever seen on television,” Beck said. “You already have all of the juice you’re ever gonna get … And if you take a stand and they fire you … we’ll be on the phone.”


“We would be proud to have you,” he added.

Beck concluded: “May I suggest: Make your stand. You will never have a better chance. And quite honestly, you’re our best shot as people. If we don’t get people to wake up to the fact that this is fascism, that we are not allowed to have another opinion … they’re never going to wake up. And you’re our best shot.”

Lol. This is a perfect topic for a drama-loving media whore like Glenn Beck to get himself involved in. All heat and no light.

It is all about  the money.

Honestly, I just don't get all this damn uproar.  I don't have to agree with him, like them or otherwise.  But people not being able to answer any given question as they see fit, is getting a bit ridiculous.

Now, I understand that 'if' a contract was broken, there are consequences.  There are consequences for all of us.

I'm just not seeing why this man's words have so many people falling all over themselves to prove they are right and he is wrong.

I don't like Glenn Beck.  In the overall scheme of things, if the show goes away, my life won't suffer from it.  If it stays, my life won't suffer from it.

If the rest of the family stands by Phil, so be it.

The uproar is totally preposterous, isnt it?

A magazine asks a well-known TV personality for his opinion, knowing exactly what the answer would be, he answers honestly, media frenzy ensues. Makes no sense

Not only did he answer honestly, he answered in a way that was totally predictable. I don't know that much about the show, but it is my understanding this guy is a multi millionaire. He's clearly not suffering from a lack of media coverage at this point. Now I'm supposed to believe he's some downtrodden figure oppressed by a bunch of fascists? I'm not seeing it.

Beck's network (???) would probably be a good fit for the show.

 Duck Dynasty must be one hell of a popular show. I feel so uncool.
