DUCK DYNASTY: REALLY, WHAT’S THIS ALL ABOUT?
Phil Robertson, one of the Duck guys from the relentlessly-promoted Duck Dynasty, has been kicked to the curb, purportedly over remarks he made in an interview conducted on his own time.
Now, the fight has escalated, with people who don’t know a duck call from a carburetor, encouraged to feel the outrage and join in the fun that can only be had by expressing that outrage in public.
But seriously: what is this all about? Why has the Corporate Media chosen to shine it’s worldly spotlight of 24/7 coverage on this event? There is always a reason. What is that reason? Is it because the media desperately wants the folks at home to have the truth?
Is it really about some guy in Louisiana who doesn’t think homosexuals are right with God? Seriously, there’s a ten-ton truckload of those of a similar mind in Cajun country.
Maybe ten thousand truckloads.
Again, what’s the deal? Why the allocating of extensive media resources to cover this one story? What’s the payoff?
The Duck Dynasty show is shown on A&E Network, which is no stranger to controversial stars. About six years ago, one Duane “Dog” Chapman, another A&E media creation, was embroiled in another media controversy which saw A&E famously kick the Bounty Hunter off the air–only to later reinstate the show to increased ratings.
One suspects that this just might be the service Phil Robertson was on the hook to perform the moment he signed his TV contract which he knew promised a lucrative weekly half-hour-long infomercial for Duck Commander duck calls–which he and his family just so happen to own.
It’s an obligation like in The Godfather. Call it “Phil Robertson’s Duck Media Obligation.” The entire controversy is good for business, reaping the series even more fame–which means more viewers and most likely, more customers for ubiquitous Duck Commander merchandise.
Which in the end benefits who?
DUCK DYNASTY: ANOTHER MANUFACTURED CONTROVERSY, COURTESY OF THE MEDIA
Duck Dynasty Guys threaten to walk out – The latest trivial controversy in the Corporate Media. Actually, make that the latest manufactured media controversy.
This began in the Corporate Media (GQ). It involved a media figure (Phil Robertson). Who is on a Corporate Media property (Duck Dynasty). And it allows all of the other Corporate Media to pile on in one of those 24/7 around-the-clock feeding frenzies with which modern Americans are so familiar.
After delivering disinformation and propaganda disguised as “news,” this is what the Corporate Media does best: concentrate attention on events which truly do not matter–but which the media convinces its readers and consumers are important.
Over 108 years ago, the Mystery of Iniquity published their strategy as regards the press. The Media is basically the main weapon with which the spirit of lawlessness operates until it controls open temporal power.
In order that the masses themselves may not guess what they are about WE FURTHER DISTRACT THEM WITH AMUSEMENTS, GAMES, PASTIMES, PASSIONS, PEOPLE’S PALACES …. SOON WE SHALL BEGIN THROUGH THE PRESS TO PROPOSE COMPETITIONS IN ART, IN SPORT IN ALL KINDS: these interests will finally distract their minds from questions in which we should find ourselves compelled to oppose them.
Among the many presses devoted entirely to distracting the masses, the celebrity/Hollywood press is particularly effective. The Duck Dynasty kerfuffle is merely their latest inconsequential controversy. Another good example of this was/is “Tim Tebow, Christian.” What was the future purpose of that hyped meme of a few years ago? We’ll see.
Further comments from Thursday.
Phil Robertson, ‘Duck Dynasty’ patriarch, off show after after condemning gays as sinners – This is a little modern morality play, winding its course through the Corporate Media. This 2013 Americanized version is to teach folks the consequences of “intolerance” as defined by the the Keepers of the New Age Flame.
In 2013 American, there will be consequences for those who don’t bow down to the Big Gay Idol. No one will be exempt–NO ONE! Not even the beloved Duck Guy from media-beloved Duck Dynasty.
But, like the Roman Catholic Church during the Dark Ages, IF the Duck Guy recants and speaks the saving words (“I Love the Gay!”), all will be forgiven and Duck Guy will be back on the Sacred TV Screen in time for season five.
This is a good object lesson. When the media raises up a person or organization, there’s many times a future consequence beyond the present. Whenever one sees the Corporate Media ceaselessly promoting something, it is for a deeper purpose.
You didn’t think the powers-that-be set up and used the power of their Corporate Media to mercilessly. relentlessly promote Duck Dynasty so a bunch of Louisiana beards could make millions selling duck calls did you?
“And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you.”
