Tea Party announces boycott of all A&E sister networks

On Thursday, Rick Oltman, president of the Tea Party Immigration Coalition (TPIC) contacted this columnist and asked for help spreading the word on their boycott of not only the A&E Network, but of all of their sister networks as well, which are owned in a partnership between the Hearst Corporation and the Disney–ABC Television Group.

Of course, the boycott is in response to A&E's dismissal of Phil Robertson from the ultra-popular show Duck Dynasty, after he stated his personal beliefs about homosexuality with GQ Magazine. Apparently, the network caved from the pressure applied by the homosexual lobby group known as GLAAD.

Oltman stated:

Everyday, we are told by the left that we must accept their values on open borders and amnesty , and if we do not, we are deemed 'bigots.' All the while, they assault our beliefs in law and order, and successfully ban all traces of Christianity and American culture from the public square.

Why is it that conservatives must be 'tolerant' of everything that is destroying what made this country great, while we are expected to keep our mouths shut as our nation is being overrun by criminals from Mexico?, Oltman continued.

The TPIC has issued a boycott against all of the A&E networks, which include:

-History
-The Biography Channel
-Military History
-History en Español
-Lifetime
-Crime & Investigation Network

"If the left does not understand tolerance and peaceful 'coexistence' as they always preach, then we will hit them in a place where we know they will get the message...their wallets," said Oltman.

As for Robertson, after his suspension, he told Fox News:

I myself am a product of the 60s; I centered my life around sex, drugs and rock and roll until I hit rock bottom and accepted Jesus as my Savior."

"My mission today is to go forth and tell people about why I follow Christ and also what the bible teaches, and part of that teaching is that women and men are meant to be together."

The fate of Duck Dynasty is now in question, as the Robertson family has stated that they will not continue the show without Phil.
