Entourage creator: Duck Dynasty would be better if gays shot at Phil Robertson

Call it part of that "new tone" we've heard so much about. Doug Ellin, creator of HBO's "Entourage," issued a tweet suggesting Duck Dynasty would be improved if gays shot at Phil Robertson, Twitchy reported Sunday.

"I think it would be a better show if gay people got to throw phil Robertson (sic) up in the air and shoot at him then (sic) him shooting at cute ducks," he tweeted.

Liberals, of course, would have us believe they are all about "tolerance" and "non-violence." That works as long as one marches in lock step with them. As we have documented hundreds of times, all bets are off when it comes to someone with a different point of view. One then learns that liberalism is really an ideology of intolerance, rage and hate.

Not everyone was impressed with Ellin's message.

"[F]reedom of speech is only important when it applies to the liberal agenda. C'mon Doug. That's weak," one person said in response.

”I didn't say he couldn't speak," Ellin replied.

While Ellin is correct in that he never said Robertson couldn't express his view, he did suggest that Robertson be shot.

One person took Ellin's argument to its logical conclusion.

"Oh look, this hate spewing Hollywood democrat 'actor' @mrdougellin is calling for the MURDER of Phil Robertson," one person said.

"Like all liberals, you are pure f*****g EVIL," the Twitter user added.

In another tweet, Ellin suggested Robertson hunt Conrad Alvin Barrett, the 27-year-old man charged with a federal hate crime in connection with a "knockout" assault against an elderly black man that authorities have said was racially motivated.

"Let’s have the duck dynasty guy hunt this guy as penance," he tweeted.

On Friday, A&E said that it was lifting Robertson's suspension after meetings with the Robertson family and various advocacy groups.
