I went to bed mad and I woke up still fuming at this culture of cry babies who throw tantrums when they hear someone else dare stand for the courage of their conviction and it happens to differ from theirs. Especially when it comes from the party of the left– the self proclaimed “tolerant party.” Their tolerance famously stops at the end of their opinion and freedom of speech is a one way street.
Phil Robertson is just the latest victim. A&E made a terrible mistake and I have a little comfort predicting that they will rue the day that they made the decision to fire the star for simply answering a question in an honest and matter of fact way when asked directly by a reporter.
But, putting that aside for now…what can YOU do to show your extreme displeasure? Capitalism is a wonderful thing as it allows you to register your feelings, vote your pleasure/displeasure, and stand up for what YOU believe in as well…all with the dollars in your pocketbook.
As such, here is a preliminary list of A&E sponsors/advertisers. We will work on getting contact info to add to this as well. In addition, I’ve read that when you buy Duck Dynasty “gear” make sure it is the Duck Commander brand and NOT the Duck Dynasty brand as A&E owns that as well.
