Sarah Palin Supports Gay-Hating 'Duck Dynasty' Star Phil Robertson

Palin

Moose-shooting enthusiast Sarah Palin has weighed in on the Duck Dynasty controversy on her Facebook page.

Said Palin:

"Free speech is an endangered species. Those 'intolerants' hatin’ and taking on the Duck Dynasty patriarch for voicing his personal opinion are taking on all of us."

  1. Wow… you called that one.

  2. Sarah loves her some free speech until someone speaks some about herself she doesn't like, or something she disagrees with. Thank you John McCain for giving us this blithering idiot forever.

  3. Somebody please shoot that rabid animal!

  4. She's all about free markets - but when the market says you can't keep saying stupid, hateful crap on TV - then apparently she changes her position. Of course, she's a victim of her own mouth in the same way - so no surprise that the free market doesn't enter into the discussion.

  5. I'm sorry did the government arrest him for saying what he did? I thought a private company could set their own rules regarding conduct and behavior of an employee?

  6. To paraphrase Martin Bashir: "Eat s**t, b**ch!

  7. Martin Bashir .... that is all.
    Oh, and hypocrite ....that too.

  8. Thank you 1st time. The 1st Amend. is a contract between the government and individuals not individuals and corporations. He's had an opportunity to publish his "beliefs" into the "market place of ideas." No one has to keep bank-rolling the publication of his insights.

  9. Well if Sarah Palin is on the side of DD then the bigotry is more egregious than ever suspected.

  10. Well, Andy Towle failed to call out Lady Gaga for singing a duet with a known homophobe....

  11. Is she still alive?

  12. Since when did the 1st Amendment mean freedom to speak one's mind without repercussions, good or bad? Mr. Robertson was and is absolute free to speak his mind. Unlike being gay, he had a choice whether to temper his words and ideas or speak his mind freely. Now he is reaping the rewards of his vocalization. Actions have consequences and those who are crying 1st Amendment foul are proving again they have no concept of what it entails. Every work place has rules as to what is acceptable and what is not. If Mr. Robertson's vocalization of his insights offended A&E, then as a corporation, they have every right to take action.

  13. Not surprising, if you aren't generating enough of your own publicity ride the coat tails of someone else's. The choice of coat tailed steed (STEED I said) is surprising though, considering he's on his way down and not up as is THE rule for coat tail riding.

  14. And America yawned.

  15. Oh, ok. When Martin Bashir of MSNBC made his comments about her (which resulted in him losing his job), that was ok. But now, with this Phil Robertson person being disciplined for his comments, it's a horrible abridgment of the First Amendment. Selective outrage.

  16. Sarah and that chick from Faux News are a perfect match for Mr. Duck. They all believe that expression of hatred is a Constitutional right, and they are all dirtbags.

  17. People still don't know that free speech is not that free.
    You are free to say what you want, but that doesn't mean that you have the right to avoid backlash.

    Of course Sarah Palin is not smart enough to know elemental things

  18. Well, after all, they're her kinda people.

    Posted by: Daniel Berry, NYC | Dec 19, 2013 9:14:01 AM


  19. She wasn't so fond of "free speech" when she got Martin Bashir fired from CNBC. She was doing cartwheels.

    And "free speech" doesn't mean freedom from consequences. Anyone is free to say what they want, but that doesn't mean others have to shut up, and it doesn't mean companies aren't also free to employ or not employ those who say it.

  20. Wait? Your header is misleading. Phil Robertson didn't say he hates gays. In fact, he said he loves all people created by God.
    Don't like what he said, fine. Don't mislead what he actually said. It makes your argument pointless.

  21. Palin is just a big of a vulture as GLAAD

  22. Idiots of a feather flock together. These folks were born ignorant and have been losing ground ever since.

  23. Nothing is more beautiful and more natural then two men shoving their sausages up one another and two women like Rosie O'Donell and Chaz Bono going to town on each other. Shame on you duck dynesty for not seeing this and you do not have freedom of speech in america, go live in Russia.

  24. Did Sarah Palin defend Paula Dean?

  25. And once again, the media Who're pops up to weigh in.
