GLAAD's Jeremy Hooper and FRC's Tony Perkins Discuss 'Duck Dynasty' with Megyn Kelly: VIDEO


GLAAD's Jeremy Hooper and Family Research Council hate group leader Tony Perkins joined Megyn Kelly last night for a discussion of Phil Robertson and the Duck Dynasty firestorm. Unfortunately, Hooper and Perkins did not get to share the screen.

Check it out, AFTER THE JUMP...

Media Matters notes:

Hooper challenged Kelly to hold Perkins accountable for his anti-gay record and vile rhetoric, to which Kelly promised, "What specifically? Because I'll ask him."

But Kelly never asked Perkins to explain his extreme stances against the gay community, nor did she acknowledge that the FRC is a designated hate group. Instead she merely identified FRC as "a group whose mission is to advance faith, family, and freedom in public policy and culture from a Christian world view"--a description that continues Fox's trend of referring to anti-gay extremism as Christianity. Perkins went on to defend Robertson as upholding "biblical morality" and attack homosexuality as "sexual immorality."

Perkins blasted Robertson's suspension earlier on Thursday:

"A&E's suspension of Phil Robertson shows Hollywood wants to avoid reality. The reality is that the Robertson family are Bible-believing Christians who don't cherry pick what the Bible teaches.

"Phil Robertson has been targeted simply because he expressed his religious beliefs but there is a clear double standard that is being applied. Nothing was done when homosexual activist Dan Savage screamed profanities at Christian high school students and called them 'pansy-(expletive deleted).' However, when Christians simply say homosexuality is wrong and they don't agree with it, there are demands that they be fired and silenced.  

"We have also seen wedding florists, bakers, and photographers hauled into court, fined and even ordered to violate their religious beliefs by participating in same-sex weddings. It is time for all Americans to take a stand against the cultural elites who want to destroy the livelihood of people and remove God and His truth from every aspect of public life.

"The increasing awareness of this collateral cultural and religious carnage that accompanies the redefinition of natural marriage will continue to cause the debate over same-sex marriage to intensify, not abate, despite the media's relative silence and homosexual activists increasing campaign of intimidation," concluded Perkins.

  3. It can "intensify" all you like, but once it's legal we're mostly going to shrug at your "ongoing conversation."

  7. Maybe it's a question that will never get answered, but why is T'road giving these money-driven charlatans so much space? Who needs to see their dog's breakfast?

  8. @litper. attaboy, but i know you can get lower. this is, after all, sop for pc bullies, trying to intimidate opponents into silence, turning rational people into defenders of bigots. smart strategy. you should work for glaad. maybe you already do.

  11. Jaker also defended the free speech of Martin Bashir being punished and his firing. We're dealing with a Grade F troll here

  12. The log cabin republicans have been trolling every gay blog saying how this story proves how victimized they've been by gay democrats. They are all throwing hissy fits and are the ones behind the comments that read suspect. Hi Jaker, how are thinks at the log cabin empty walls?

  13. Why go to Megyn Kelly and Fox News? Why not MSNBC and Chris Hayes? He supports the guy. Says if you want "reality TV" you get "reality" and to censor someone reeks of Stalinism. Chew on that.

  14. Oh, I keep forgetting: no one is watching Chris and Rachel anymore. All eyes on Fox News.

  15. @Mike another right-winger trash from GOPrude

  16. Jeremy was very nervous here -- as would I have been -- but he did a good job of taking Perkins to task. Kelly was a way too "I'm not taking any sides here..." for my liking, but at least she wasn't doing an impression of Ann Coulter. There's that.

    Posted by: Gigi | Dec 20, 2013 9:49:37 AM

  17. LOL Faux news is soo transparent in their actions that I honestly feel like I'm watching an SNL skit. I mean they are so obvious that it's pathetic! So thirsty for a story to sensationalize.

    This will be old news in two days!

  18. there is no comparison between a commentator advocating on air that a public figure get shat in the mouth and a redneck reality "star" espousing his absurd, regressive and mock-worthy religious and racial beliefs. any rational adult can discern the difference. but by all means, keep bringing this episode up, when people will remember how there was little outrage on the left about that, but omg we must silence a redneck reality star. it's obvious this strategy will lead to a pr win for the left and gay peeps.

    it's amusing to me that because rational liberals can see the complete hypocrisy and boneheadedness of the authoritarian left, we're called right wingers and log cabin republicans. believe what you like, but this is going to backlash on you, on us. but you're too wrapped up in y'all blinding self righteous outrage that you cant see the forest for the trees.

    it's carrie prejean part deux, electric boogaloo. and our side will take the hit, again.

  19. @Jaker go to Uganda and enjoy your no-gays heaven!

  20. I listened to Jeremy, but could not stomach another listen to Perkins.

  21. ..."Cherry picking?" Really? In my estimation (and study) These "Christians" "cherry pick" the bible with every turn....First, Jesus never said a word about homosexuality Not one. But his followers back then did and more... e.g. it's cool to own slaves (See Paul's letters). The list goes on. He gave an "okay" on slavery. What could be more Christian than owning another human being?
    The book of Leviticus, which is used most often by religious zealots forbids homosexuality, but eating shellfish, pork and wearing two articles of clothing from different fabric....can't plant certain crops next to each other...if these acts were performed, all were banished to hell.hmmmm. Methinks I smell a cherry pick moment here.

  22. Notice the difference in her interviewing style between the two guests. She interrupted the GLAAD guy repeatedly, and challenged the things he said, but she let Perkins go on and on, and seemed apologetic and knit-browed when asking him questions.

  23. What are you talking about, Jaker?

    People like YOU are the danger to LGBTS. Not the other way around.

    People like YOU have spent a thousand years killing, harrassing, maiming us LGBT using your 'BIble' to do that.

    People like YOU are cretins and...because of your continued lyng about what you jeeesssuuuusss said...

    People like YOU you are dangerous.

    The DAY that any couple gets 'Straight-bashed' by gays is the day YOU can open your fat GOB and complain.

    Til then you're a pabalum spewing intellectual midget who drools over the idea of an LGBT Purge.

    You must have stock in the Russian Oven Company.

  24. She's simply another empty-headed talking head for a company that is not interested in airing factual anything but intent on an agenda less-and-less people ascribe to.

  25. MSNBC once had a face to face interview with Barney Frank and Tony Perkins on gay marriage. The latter was repeated smacked by Barney.
    Tony really looked pathetic.
