Christmas Day: A&E Runs 'Duck Dynasty' Super Marathon
Starting at 3:30pm Christmas Day, A&E will broadcast a
super marathon of 25 "Duck Dynasty" episodes. The marathon will
run until 4am. This will be the second "Duck Dynasty" marathon the
network has broadcast after
indefinitely suspending Phil Robertson, the series' star, for the crime of
discussing Biblical sin, including homosexuality, with GQ Magazine.
The anti-Christian A&E apparently wants to have it both
ways. If it brings in viewers, the network has no problem broadcasting
marathons filled with Phil Robertson. At the same time, though, the network is
punishing this very same star whose "offending" persona is all over
its network in the direct wake of a phony controversy.
With this marathon, A&E is also broadcasting how important
the "Duck Dynasty" franchise is to them. The Robertson clan not only
stars in the network's number-one show, they star in the network's only signature hit.
A&E is in a pickle for two reasons: A&E needs
"Duck Dynasty" a lot more than "Duck Dynasty" needs them.
Secondly, A&E is the only who did anything wrong, and did so by caving to
America's politically correct fascists like GLAAD.
The Robertson family has already made clear they will
not honor the suspension.
