In case you missed it, union bosses recently demanded the firing of two senior management personnel at Eglin Air Force Base, because they displayed Duck Dynasty bumper stickers on their vehicles and in their offices. This stickers read “I support Phil”. Not exactly the sort of hate speech you would expect to be banned from an office environment, but leave it to the liberals to turn something totally innocent into a nationwide controversy.
One of the men being targeted by the American Federation of Government Employees has since spoken out. His response is perfect, though it may be just a bit too logical for liberals to handle. The individual, who has chosen not to release his name, said:
“My intent was not to offend anybody. My intent was to support the show and to show support for his Christian values. I’m pro-family. I’m pro-life. I don’t have a problem with anybody who doesn’t agree with me. I disagree with 90 percent of what our Commander in Chief believes in, but I’m not asking anyone to take (an Obama decal) off their vehicle. It’s a freedom of speech issue. I’m not taking it off. If they want to make me retire early that’s what I’ll do. But I’m not backing down.”
Before Obama was elected, such a gross violation of First Amendment rights would have been unthinkable. This is Obama’s America, folks.
Our hats are off to this man for standing his ground. Maybe he’s taking a cue from Phil Robertson himself, who refused to back down to A&E after his controversial interview with GQ Magazine and was eventually vindicated by regaining his spot on his family’s hit reality TV show. We’ve got a feeling that this situation will have a very similar outcome.
What’s seriously disturbing about all this is that if these men had voiced their support for some ho bag reality star with a drug problem and a dirty mouth, no one would have had even the slightest problem with it. But leave it to progressive liberals to suppress any and all support for God-fearring Christians. That seems more than a little bit backwards to me. Wouldn’t you agree?
