No, I Don’t Hate Phil Robertson!

People have been saying a lot about this, and I think people are misunderstanding my stance on it, so I’m going to flat out say it once and for all. I’m a blogger! I support free speech! However, Phil had a contract with A&E to be a public figure representing A&E. Once A&E felt he was misrepresenting them, they suspended him. It’s in his contract. You see, he signed a contract to represent A&E, and in exchange, he got a lot of money. Basically, what I am annoyed with, is that people think this is a freedom of speech issue. He is not being censored. A&E in no way is taking away his right to free speech, but they can take away their pay check when they feel he doesn’t represent them in a positive light. This is not a constitutional issue, this is contract law. He signed and cashed the pay checks. No one forced him to. I just think people exude ignorance when they state this is a freedom of speech issue. It’s not. Sorry.

Also, I don’t hate Phil Robertson for what he said. He said what he believed. It’s his freedom of speech to express himself, and it is my freedom of speech to call him an ignorant redneck, but I don’t hate him. I’m glad he is sticking to his guns. I am actually hoping that he will stick to his statements so that eventually the show will be cancelled and I won’t have to hear about that family anymore!

 

I Love The Holi-daze

As a lot of you know, I’m a lapsed Catholic, lapsed Jew, and current Agnostic-ish person, but I love the holidays! Here are 5 things I want for this holiday season…

1) A Christmas Episode of Archer!

2) A Box of colored pencils!

3) Anne Hathaway to have a Christmas Special

4) Duck Dynasty to go off the air. (Not because I’m offended by his comments, but because I think the show is trash.) I hate reality tv!

5) World Piece! (I’m practicing for my Mister America award!)
