Phil Robertson is a part of a majority white supremacist culture?

I wish with all my might that I could have a sit down debate with any personality who is apart of MSNBC. It would be like tiger in the meat department at a supermarket. Progressives have this annoying flaw of thinking that they are the smartest people in the room, yet they never are. They lack any common sense in their arguments, so it's impossible for them to make a rational argument. I've done SO MANY stories on the dingbats at MSNBC, I've lost count a long time ago. Since Martin Bashir left in disgrace over his vile remarks aimed at Sarah Palin, I suppose Eric Michael Dyson is trying to become more noticed. Since Phil Robertson has the four taboos working against him in the eyes of liberals 1. Christian 2. White 3. Conservative 4. Male, it's only logical that the whack pack at MSNBC are trying to sink their teeth into him. Eric Dyson in typical progressive racial paranoia template fashion believes that "Phil Robertson is a part of a majority white supremacist culture". As I always say, I couldn't make this up if I tired to.



How is a television show a symbol of a "majority white supremacist culture"? If America is mostly in line with that of a  majority white supremacist culture, then how did Obama get elected and re elected? And here I thought that Duck Dynasty was just an entertaining, silly show that people like to watch, because it is that, entertaining. This is why the dingbats on MSNBC and management will never figure out why Fox News is number one. The massive uproar in defense of Phil Robertson had more to do with people being fed up, angry, sick and tired of progressives always whining about the racist or racially intolerant bogey man that only they can see. What Phil Robertson said was based on what "he" experienced growing up in the "pre civil rights" era Louisiana. What he said had no relevance to blacks, zero. The people who claim to be so outraged over what he said more then likely don't even watch the show. Why is it so important to progressives that Phil had to experience blacks being discriminated against back in the 40's and 50's? Maybe that is the question that needs to be asked. What progressives conveniently are leaving out of their fake outrage is the admittance that Phil Robertson

1.never said he supported Jim Crow
2. never said he supported racism
3. never said he didn't like blacks

So I am bewildered in trying to find the "white supremacist" angle that Eric Dyson was eluding to.

Yeah, we ALLLLLLLLL know that Blacks who were in the fields were ALLLLLLLL happy and having fun and NEVER NO NEVER sang the blues...

And my mother and aunts just LOVED being maids although they never smiled in the pictures with the families they were paid to take care of but ALWAYS smiled in the blood family pictures....

lol, it's funny that when I first heard Phil's comment, I knew exactly what he meant. People who have issue with what Phil said aren't deeply Christian people. His remark was simply that blacks were more "happy spiritually" back during that time. My thinking is this Darkstar, how does his comment about what he observed growing up have any impact on blacks pro or con in 2013?

Yeah, "more spiritually happy" equates to not hearing anything said by Black people against white people. Yep.... Right.

CB;"This is a huge win for not only Christians but for people who have had enough of the vocal minority trying to silence the silent majority".

The only reason you believe Christians "won" anything, is because the detractors of A&E's decision to suspend Robertson made his religion an issue. Christian didn't win anything. Every decision that was made in this entire debacle was about MONEY!

However, this reminds me of The Learning Channel (TLC) show called "All American Muslims" which was cancelled due to negative email campaign mounted by the conservative Florida Family Association. The group successfully convinced over 100 advertisers to drop their support.

Conservatives 1, Muslims 0....

Even though the show was clearly about "their faith", conservatives saw it fit to deny them an outlet to display their beliefs. There were no moments promoting Sharia Law, Jihad nor terrorist activities. Just Muslim families doing what American Muslim do.

Yet, TLC made it's decision based on MONEY also. They knew that hatred for Muslims is a powerful force. Conversely however, the backlash against Robertson was not based on his religion. The issue was caused by his negative views of others, but not directly in opposition to his religion. Whereas the attack on the "All American Muslim" show was scrupulously focused on the participants religion.

This is why it's a myth that most conservatives are tolerant of the differences in culture, race, personal rights and even gender issues. Most of the followers of the conservative movement (including yourself Tyrone) have no idea of the inconsistencies and hypocritical nature of the leaders and talkers you follow and listen to.

Despite what the 1st Amendment of the U.S. Constitution says and means, to the hard core conservative, religious freedom means "Christianity." Yet, when ideology trumps common sense it's easy to deceive and confuse.

CB;"lol, it's funny that when I first heard Phil's comment, I knew exactly what he meant".

Say whuuuud?? I remember in the months following the 2008 election you wrote that you "knew how Sarah Palin thinks." Nothing could be more strange....

Granted, that you could form an "ideological opinion" of what Robertson meant. But how in the hell is it possible that a 30-ish year old black man born and raised in the northern city of Baltimore, EXACTLY KNOW what a 67 year old southern backwoods raised white guy means about his experience with southern blacks? Robertson was raised in the segregated south.

Although I've read his comments, I'm not going to pretend that I know "exactly" what he meant. Only he and those closest to him really knows what he meant. I can only take his comments for what they were. He said that he believed "blacks were happy" living under the conditions they were in, and that he "never saw the mistreatment of blacks." From my own personal experiences of visiting the south in the 1960's, the blacks in my family weren't very happy with the lifestyle associated with segregation.

Moreover, simply because Robertson mentioned that blacks were "godly", doesn't imply that he was saying blacks were "happy spiritually." That statement of your is just pure nonsense. However, if indeed that's what he really meant, that would make his statement that much more egregious. We all can agree that the practice and conditions of segregation were deplorable. Yet, Robertson (because of the color of his skin) DID NOT have to live nor suffer under the same segregated conditions as blacks. It's almost like a jailer saying an innocent jailed prisoner was "godly and happy" because he was given a clean cell and a meal every day. It strikes the notion in me of why the caged bird sings...

But I'll digress and give him the benefit of the doubt and say "perhaps" he didn't give segregation a second thought, being that at the time it was the norm.

On a side note, I haven't seen your comical postings in awhile, I thought maybe you got jacked on the streets of Detroit. lol Anyways, this was a huge victory for the Christian Allen, of course I would never expect you to acknowledge or even realize it. For the Pro Phil Robertson supports to get Cracker Barrel to reverse their knee jerk decision to pull Phil Robertson specific merchandise was the first win. Of course, we both knew that A&E wasn't for a minute jeopardize losing Duck Dynasty, but vocal ourtrage by the silent majority rallied a lot of people who don't even watch the show. The big win for the Christian right is GLAAD being upset with A&E for choosing the show over them. A show in which a good number of Christian conservatives watch and obviously support as demonstrated.

To be honest, I don't know allen. But here's the thing. What he experienced doesn't impact me one way or another. This is why the controversy is lame. Why should I as a black man care what one man out of three hundred million people observed thirty or forty years ago? Phil Robertson makes duck callers for hunters, he's not an historian. If Phil wasn't famous and a strong Christian personality, nobody would care less if he made the same comment if a person in conversation asked him the same question allen. Also, every white person who lived int he south during Jim Crow wasn't a racist. They just weren't.

Have you noticed allen, that the people who are crying the most over Phil's comments have yet to ask him to clarify what he said? If I was an overreaction type, I would at least try to find out exactly what he meant before I started crying about it. We both know that things can be said that don't come out exactly has we think them. Why aren't' anyone asking Phil to clarify what he meant and to go into greater detail? You know why allen? Because Phil Robertson is the issue not what he said. Remember Alinsky Jijitsu of "PIP".

p allen "Yet, Robertson (because of the color of his skin) DID NOT have to live nor suffer under the same segregated conditions as blacks."

And blacks who are 50 years old and younger never did either allen. How old are you again? This is a reason why as much as some oversensitive blacks and others want to make what Phil said an issue, it's not really an issue among the majority of blacks, primarily because it doesn't apply to them. Sure a black person can say their parent or grandparent grew up under Jim Crow, but they themselves can't say it. The thing is that one person's personal experience will be different in some aspects and the same in others.

p allen "However, this reminds me of The Learning Channel (TLC) show called "All American Muslims" which was cancelled due to negative email campaign mounted by the conservative Florida Family Association. The group successfully convinced over 100 advertisers to drop their support.

I believe the show should have been left on the air and let viewers decide allen. The concept of the show "All American Muslim" was odd but oh well.

Fortunately not, yet more fortunate for any punks that might feel froggy and leap. I walk softly through the streets here, but I carry a big stick.

CB;"Anyways, this was a huge victory for the Christian Allen, of course I would never expect you to acknowledge or even realize it".

I won't acknowledge it because the Christian dissent to Robertson's firing was drummed up by media, and media pundit attention. A&E didn't take action against Robertson because he was a Christian. They did it because of what he said about gays and blacks.

First off, let me say that A&E should never have suspended Robertson. I believe they knew who and what they were hiring from the get-go.

Religious viewers like the Robertsons because they're Christians. They see it as if A&E is punishing him for saying out loud what he believes, and maybe for what they themselves believe. They think that A&E is punishing him, in their eyes, for being one of them.

However, aren't conservatives constantly railing against "fake outrage" over racially charged issues, such as the Trayvon Martin/George Zimmerman case? When debacles such as these become "news", how is it that one side see's an attack on their race or religion, and the other side see's fake outrage? It's as I've said many times. All sides have a succumbed to their own level of hypocrisy.

I asked; "how in the hell is it possible that a 30-ish year old black man born and raised in the northern city of Baltimore, EXACTLY KNOW what a 67 year old southern backwoods raised white guy means about his experience with southern blacks?".
You replied; "To be honest, I don't know allen".
Just as I thought! (thought I'd just rub that one in your face...lol)

Jihadists commit violence and death against homosexuals, but not a peep about them from the lamestream media. But instead Phil Robertson did the loving thing and told the truth about men with men, then cited scripture (1 Corinth. 6:9-11), which shows how they can get right and be spared the wrath of God. And then headlines blaze nationwide that his comments were "anti gay." The masses do not give a hoot about the souls of homosexuals, or anyone (or about children "questioning" to be "queer"), and are urging souls down the road to hell. When people stop speaking the truth in love (Ephesians 4:15), the result is the same as is with the sin of hatred (Galatians 5:19-21 ). ABC, NBC, CBS, movies, TV, public school & college indoctrination, newspapers, Yahoo, Democrats, Log Cabin RINOs, Lobbyists, corrupt sects, etc. have crossed the line into pushing souls to be damned, while hypocritically referring to righteous bible teaching as "hate speech." The devil is a liar, and a murderer, and is diabolical in even doing it "IN YO FACE." But this time around A&E got called on it. Thank God for the Bible, for even though the devil has been mighty, God is forever Almighty. “The churches of Christ salute you,” Romans 16:16-20.

As far as Robertson's comment about blacks, people know what he meant (including some commenters who are stretching it, to be adversarial).

Their "souls to be damned?" I've heard and have read that same quote from almost every religious zealot who's religion teaches there's a hell. Do you really think "you" saying it makes a difference?

"People" might think they know what he meant. As for me, I really don't know what he "meant." However, it's been well publicized what he "said." He "said" he thought that blacks were "godly and happy" (while he worked along side them in the cotton fields of the segregated south). Personally, I don't see the statement as "racist." I find the statement to be more so naive, and for lack of a better term, plain stupid. As I said, Robertson grew up in the rural south when segregation was the norm. He knew nothing else.

Let me put an another example of what Phil Robertson was describing when he was working alongside blacks during the Jim Crow era.

During World War 2, my maternal grandmother worked in a bombing plant in Wichita, Kansas. The only Jim Crow law in that era was through the education system. People, black and white who were mostly women, would come to work and assemble the planes. No group of people, regardless of skin color were put on one side assembling the planes, while the other were put on the other side. My grandmother even worked alongside little people and their jobs were to get work in the smaller spaces of the vehicles they were assembling.

What I've been told, when the staff came to work, there was no white or "colored" entrance when entering the plant.

Big Pop;"During World War 2, my maternal grandmother worked in a bombing plant in Wichita, Kansas. The only Jim Crow law in that era was through the education system".

Big Pop, I really have to say this, and honestly, I don't mean to insult you as I say it with all due respect. Either you're a lying fake, or you're just plain stupid.

During WWII, THE MILITARY WAS SEGREGATED! The Armed Forces were not desegregated until 1948. Furthermore, the war effort here at home saw "everyone" (except Japanese Americans and some German and Italian Americans) join in the war effort. Even though blacks knew they would be in segregated condition, many enlisted anyway.

At home blacks began the Double V Campaign which stood for "Victory at Home, and Victory Abroad." Prior to the war, blacks sought to get work in the growing defense industry. It wasn't until President Roosevelt signed Executive Order 8802 that blacks were even allowed to work in defense jobs. I can't tell you about your grandmothers experience, yet I can tell you what has been documented and written as part of that history.

Again, I can't comment on your grandmothers experience. However, it's documented that on May 17, 1954, the Supreme Court issued its landmark Brown v. Board of Education of Topeka ruling, which declared that racially segregated public schools were inherently unequal. It's also documented that after the ruling, Wichita public officials continued their segregated practice until 1958. Moreover Wichita was the site of the very first "sit-in" at Dockum Drug store, as a protest against segregation practices.

Thus I find it hard to believe that at that time there was no discrimination (or segregation of some sort) in the munitions plants.

What do you mean you don’t mean to insult me? Whenever I post something not to your liking, you do go and insult me. All I did was posted a story about my grandmother’s experience working in a bombing plant during WW2.
I have to ask you this Allen: has living in Detroit made you a bitter man? I’ve dealt with bullies like you all my life, and I’m talking about the ones who go and call people names to make themselves feel superior and good about themselves. Even from those who claim to be such a “know-it-all”. And I apologize having to use his name, but if someone like Gerald T. were to post a similar story like mine, would you concur with him, or would you correct him with a friendly tone, or would you do it with some of the insults?

Allen-“During WWII, THE MILITARY WAS SEGREGATED!”

Like I said, my grandmother was not in the military! She working on assembling airplanes while our men were fighting overseas. The military was segregated, but the plant where she worked at was not. I don’t know if they had separate restrooms of separate break rooms, they never told me nor did I ask.

Thank you for that info, Allen. Maybe I’ll look it up. While we’re on the subject, even though racial equality in some locations on the job was strenuous during the war, the Alabama Drydock and Shipbuilding Company in Mobile, Alabama, its racial equality was an ongoing problem. Although the problem has been brought up to the management and trade union a race riot erupted forcing the shipyard to close temporarily. During that time, my grandmother, being prejudice as she was, I think she did had a lot of resentment working with her black coworker when she first started there. It wasn’t until time itself that she got along with her coworkers and vice-versa.

Allen-“I can't tell you about your grandmothers experience, yet I can tell you what has been documented and written as part of that history. Again, I can't comment on your grandmothers experience.”

I’m pretty sure you have seen the old newsreels where it shows a bunch of people working in the plants and on the assembly. Most of the people I’ve seen in those reels were white men and women. Since I’m from Washington, Boeing, which has been credited of manufacturing the B-29 bombers, like all the other plants they too employed blacks, which too had a lot of racial equality issues, all they showed were the white employees assembling and rolling out the vehicles from the assembly lines. Why minorities were not featured probably did not fit the narrative, or wanted to keep the racial animosity to a minimum. It’s like that the Chinese were credited for constructions of the railroads during the mid-1800s, but most of the old photographs I’ve seen, the ones that were pictured were white, Irish immigrants.

Allen-“Thus I find it hard to believe that at that time there was no discrimination (or segregation of some sort) in the munitions plants.”

I’m just going by the stories my grandmother, my mother and aunt (who were young girls during the war) what they told me. My mother and her sister would meet their mother after school at the plant. While observing the assembling from the observation deck, my mother, who wanted to be part of the war effort wanted to work alongside with her mother and would not allow it because she was too young and the job was too dangerous. When she pointed out that she would work with the other “kids”, she told them that they were little people (midgets as they were called then). Even though my mother grew up in Kansas and Missouri and lived in parts of the segregated South, when it came to race relations, she would tell me some horrifying stories such as lynching.

Okay, followed by my comments, from almost 20 centuries ago here are 3 passages from the mouth of Jesus Christ:

1) Luke 13:3. “I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish.”
2) John 8:24. “ … for if ye believe not that I am He, ye shall die in your sins.”
3) Mark 7:20-23. “And he said, That which cometh out of the man, that defileth the man. For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed evil thoughts, adulteries, fornications*, murders, Thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lasciviousness, an evil eye, blasphemy, pride, foolishness: All these evil things come from within, and defile the man.”

* “Fornications” is every kind of unlawful intercourse. That includes pre-marital, adultery, incest, beastiality, AND HOMOSEXUAL. Here, and in many verses, Jesus condemns homosexuality. Further, since Jesus is “the Word was with God, and was God” (John 1:1), everywhere in the Bible where God the Father condemned homosexuality (1 Cor. 6:9-11), Christ was also condemning homosexuality.

Once upon a time people regularly read and heard a little scripture. Today this nation and world is saturated with unbelievers, vain human philosophers, worldly sectarian denominations, cultics, mystics, anarchists, materialists, occultics, and people who do not love God or even their own souls enough to even care – they stand and clap and yell for celebrities and athletes, but forget God, Christ, scripture, church, Christians, and heaven.

2 Cor 4:3-4, 1 John 5:19, and Rev. 12:9 show that Satan has blinded the minds of people of this world, and deceived the whole world, so that they lie in wickedness. Many people instead of seeking to obey just get emotional, use label and name-calling (Emotionally Loaded Culturally Preprogrammed buzzwords), like “racist” and “sexist” and “homophobic.”

(continued) The people who kept pushing for Jesus to be crucified (Luke 22:66; 23:21) were very religious, but Jesus exposed them as children of the devil (John 8:3, 39-50). In Matthew 23:1-2,13-17,33 , to the spiritually blind hypocritical scribes and Pharisees who loved to sit in Moses' seat, Jesus said to them: “Ye serpents, ye generation of vipers, how can ye escape the damnation of hell?”

Every human being is either on the side of Jesus Christ, or else on the side of His crucifiers. Most of religious folk are on the side of His crucifiers, including many who say they are of Christ but are not, and many vainly religious zealots.

In Matthew 22:14, Jesus said “For many are called, but few are chosen.” Many are religious, but few do right. Some act like everyone who quotes a little scripture is false – If so that would make God and Christ false. Many have bad experiences with false religionists. Aw, Boo Hoo! Instead of learning from it and seeking wisdom from God, people get belligerent and more profane.

From John 5:21-23; Acts 17:31, Jesus Christ will come to execute judgment for all souls, and all are judged by: 1) the book of scripture, John 12:48, 2) the book of deeds, and 3) whether their name is in the book of life, Rev. 20:12-15. Nothing that defiles will enter heaven, Rev.21:27, so a soul must obey the gospel to be washed and saved from sin.

In Matthew 7:1-5, Jesus commands his followers to get themselves right first, and so that “Judge not” means do not be a hypocritical fault finder, and then and only then, will they be able to “Judge righteous judgment” (John 7:24) which is also commanded by Christ. Everyday we must discern right and wrong, and make judgment calls. It is axiomatic that a follower of Christ must discern to call good good and call evil evil, and to teach souls the word of God.

Many people of the world treat Jesus Christ as if He is a liar or a lunatic. Jesus Himself said the world hates him (John 15:18). For me, Jesus is “my Lord and my God” (John 20:28). I show my love for Him by obeying Him (John14:15 & 15:14). “The churches of Christ salute you,” Romans 16:16.

Indigo, I read all of your comments, most of them being quotes of scripture from the bible. If you would grant the same, please follow my comments....

I don't consider myself to be a "religious" person. However, I fully understand your need to proselytize (yet again), which is something many religions do in an attempt to convert people to a different point of view. Again, follow closely because I'm not attempting to defame your religious beliefs. Yet mind you, your spiritual beliefs are simply that... "YOUR" beliefs.

One of the reasons Europeans came to the shores of this country was the pursuit of religious freedom. That freedom was subsequently solidified by a constitution which allows for "ALL" beliefs, and un-believers alike. Your individual beliefs are no stronger, nor weaker than the next mans.

Thus "YOUR" beliefs, are "YOUR" beliefs. If you believe someones "soul is being pushed to be damned", it's your belief according to your religion. I don't ask who's right or who's wrong. I respect every persons right to believe what ever they believe.

Therefore, my statement stands. Several religions teaches the afterlife concept of hell. Each one teaches on their concept of what actions in life constitute "damnation." So again, do you really think "YOU" saying it makes a difference? A simple yes or no is all I was asking.

Allow me to apologize. No harm nor insult was intended.

It's just (when reading your statement), it seems as though you hadn't gave the statement; "The ONLY Jim Crow law in that era was through the education system" much thought. I was kinda' taken aback that you failed to realize that Jim Crow segregation existed in the military. Again, I apologize if you were offended.

Your apology is accepted Allen; maybe I should have been a little more elaborate in my story.

I am aware that during that time that our military was segregated and Jim Crow was practiced in parts of the South; namely the education system prior to Brown vs. Board of Education.
According the stories I've been told, while my grandmother was working at the plants, there was no segregation in the workplace. Off work, I never asked her if like other parts of the South, if there were separate restrooms, water fountains, and businesses around the Wichita area. I was more aware of it being practiced namely in Alabama, Mississippi, Arkansas according what was documented and taught in my history class.

Since the passage of Brown vs. Board, long before I was born, segregation in school in mid-west was still practiced, yet in a strange yet twisted way that the schools were no longer co-ed; that boys and girls were hauled to separate schools onto separate school buses. Again, this was one of the stories my mother told me.

A conservative sees a big beautiful home and says, "boy, I'd like to live there someday."

A liberal says, "I don't have that, so nobody should."

Now, let the person who actually owns that home make a statement that may not jibe well with cause du jour of the liberal loon, then stand back and watch as they go at him like a thousand piranha in a frenzy. It's a terrible sight.
