Why does everyone keep preaching "FREEDOM OF SPEECH"? Yes, he is free to say whatever he wants, and he did, but freedom of speech has nothing to do with this. The network is a company, and I challenge each and every one of you to make your company look bad in any fashion and see if you still have a job.

While I agree with him, freedom of speech had NOTHING to do with it. He is FREE to say whatever he wants, but must accept the conquences of his speech!

So does A&E.

A&E knew what they had in the Duck Dynasty group. These guys are serious Christians and have a right to express their views same as gays or any other group.

Why is it in America Christine's cannot express their views without serious consequences and everyone else has an open podium to say anything they wish about Christians?

I guess this would all depend on the contract between A&E and the guys with the beards.

I am as conservative as they come, and agree with what he said 100%, I am also a business owner. When you work for someone you cannot do anything to compromise the business. If he were on his own and not make a FORTUNE off of A&E then go and say anything you want.

Liberals never have to live with the consequences of what they say..."If you want to keep your doctor, you can, period. If you want to keep your medical plan, you can, period. I never had sex with that woman. It all depends on what the meaning of 'is', is. Benghazi was the result of an obscure video no one ever saw. I said you can keep your plan, IF it still available. What does it matter? We have plenty of shovel ready jobs. I'm from the Government, and I'm here to help you....."

Martin Bashir, MSNBC made a despicable, foul-mouthed, personal attack against Sarah Palin, live, on his TV show. He was praised, defended, and was NOT fired. He did hang on for an additional week or two, before he resigned.

Phil Robertson honestly answers a question in a magazine interview and his public life is over, in spite of the fact he stated his personal belief, without attacking anyone.

Conservatives and Christians seemingly are not allowed to speak their minds. Political correctness is a way to shut down the opposition.

Oh yeah, +10 for Phil.

11.8m viewers for Duck Dynasty. 9.6m americans appx in the LGBT. Do the math if your a business owner. They have the potential to loose 11.8m viewers, their biggest hit show ever. A&E is compromising business if they truly go through with this.

And he does not make a fortune off A&E. 200k to be split between all 9 members of Duck Commander.. personally I think this was planned by him. after his interview back in august when A&E wanted them to tone down the guns and religion he wanted out of the contract. What an absolute brilliant way to do it with out breaching it.

I do Not Understand - Duck Dynasty has 18​Million Viewers : Conservative's & Christos

You should do every thing to enhance the Business: They THRIVE

Who is making Bank on the Duck Squad ?? but >>>>>>> A & E

They actually sit a Table as a Family Pray before Dinner on every show in stead of leaning over a bucket of chikin in the Living room.

They Talk to Each Other instead of a DROID mounted to the Fore head
Love abounds you can see it by the grief they give each other as just JOSHING
When you work for someone you cannot do anything to compromise the business.
So 18 Million Conservatives with Some form of Morals and Ethic's and behavior who watch a Unified Knit Family Culture are WRONG ??

Take it to the Bank >>>> A & E Did and then they stepped on their Very OWN **ck. Or some Uber Liberal pajama Boy or Girl Did in the Corporation. Victims of their OWN Responsibility

Their Financial Liberal Business Decision -Just Slayed their OWn Capital $$$$

Take it to The BANK

Conciquences of STANDING on HIS ROCK and His SPEECH ??

Just MADE a PILE of $$$ over POSITION and OWNERSHIP

As I said I agree with what he said and disagree with what A&E did. What I disagree with is the "FREEDOM OF SPEECH" right being thrown around. He has the right to say what he wants, but A&E has the right to terminate him for it. Stupid as it may be on their part it is their right!

Rumors are starting to come out that the beards might be finished with the show.

Just rumors on Fox News right now.

But, I would not be surprised.

I truly hope some else picks them up. They are hot.

This reminds me of the Chick-Fil-A CEO - He has the right to say what he want and IMO run his company the way he (and the board if publicly traded company).

There are market consequences. This should not be confused with legal ramifications.

Freedom of speech guarantee's that Phil will not be jailed or otherwise pay legal consequence purely for his stated belief.

On the other hand - same thing with A&E. I believe they *should* and I think they do have the legal right to sign or deny contracts with who they want and can base, within reason, that on what the publicly stated beliefs are of the people they are signing.

The only question with Phil M. and A&E at this point is what does the contract they are bound to state (or not state) with regards to how A&E can terminate early.

I would imagine that A&E had significant legal counsel guide them before taking this action. If so then it follows it's "Legal" for A&E to terminate the contract.

A&E should be prepared for the consequences - not legal consequences but public opinion consequences. Just as Chick-Fil-A should (and I think was) prepared for the consequences of their CEO's publicly stated opinion.

Joe Biden: you can't work at 7/11 unless you have an Indian accent......I like this Obama guy- he is clean and well spoken. Obama: I bowled a 129..... It was like the special Olympics. Where are the repercussions for those stupid remarks? Double standards make the standard bearers look like idiots. I am surprised by the support in this thread and very proud of it.

Im wondering why with all the other crap going on, the news,talkshows, radio shows etc devote so much time to this.
I personally just dont care. Have no idea what he said, and well, just don't care if the silly network fired him for it.
