Conservative media personality Glenn Beck says that if A&E cancels Duck Dynasty, which some believe is inevitable, he'll bring it to his network The Blaze.
The hit reality show getting axed would've seemed unthinkable only 48 hours ago, but Phil Robertson’s suspension made it a very real possibility.
Comments about homosexuality, gay sex, sin and other topics earned him an indefinite hiatus from the show and set the web (pardon the pun) ablaze.
In the event that this gets Duck Dynasty canceled by A&E, Beck offered the family a place on his network, writing "[All the other networks] will fold to pressure."
“They will all fold to sponsors. They will all fold to money ... the only reason why Phil was put on hiatus and not the rest is because it is a money-printing machine.”
Beck said as he sees it, the Robertson family has a choice to make, and that is how to react to the backlash over the patriarch's anti-gay comments.
“If I am in the Robertson family, I sit down with my family and say, ‘Is this the way we’re going to [let] him be treated? Is this who we are?" Beck opined.
"Are we going to [be] quiet because he has an opinion about the scriptures?’”
Beck said that based on what he knows about the popular family from West Monroe, La., they’re not going to continue as though nothing happened.
He went so far as to suggest that the entire family call GQ, where Robertson’s comments appeared, and tell them nothing but, “I agree with Phil.”
“You will either be out, or you will be the most powerful people the country has ever seen on TV ... You already have all of the juice you’re ever gonna get."
"And if you take a stand and they fire you ... we’ll be on the phone.”
Time will tell if that day ever comes ... but comment/vote below:
Did Phil Robertson deserve to be suspended?
