Govt. Union Demands That Duck Dynasty Fans Be Fired
Free Speech anyone? Apparently not for members of: a union representing federal employees at Eglin Air Force base in Florida. On their personal vehicles, 2 staff members placed a sticker supporting Phil Robertson of Duck Dynasty fame. ON THEIR PERSONAL VEHICLES. What’s next, go in my house and see if I have any camo in the closet?
“We took offense,” Cooper told me in a telephone interview. “These two particular individuals have a great amount of influence over individuals who may be gay, who may be African-American — and we have a concern they should not be in a position to exert that influence when it comes to promotions.”
In an email that was sent to union members, Cooper said the Duck Dynasty decal may be a violation of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.
“Phil Robertson has made disparaging remarks against a vast array of people, which created a firestorm in the media in the recent past,” Cooper wrote.
He was referring to comments Robertson made in GQ magazine last year about homosexuality and his personal observations about the pre-Civil Rights era. A&E briefly suspended Robertson from his popular reality television show. But the network reversed its decision after they were overwhelmed by supporters of the program. I write about how Robertson and his family were viciously attacked by the media and militant gay rights organizations in my new book, “God Less America.”

I agree, Phil. This is not the Great America we all dreamed off, that so many fought for in so many wars. This is not an America where those who love freedom can actually express themselves by supporting the things they believe in. Speak your mind Phil. Let’s bring back the America we all love.
