Government union demands firing of ‘Duck Dynasty’ fans for ‘I Support Phil’ decals

A government union at Eglin Air Force base in Florida says two senior managers should be fired, or at least removed from their leadership roles, because they have decals on their vehicles that read: “Duck Dynasty: I Support Phil.”

The decal refers to openly Christian Phil Robertson, one of the stars of the reality television show, “Duck Dynasty.”

Alan Cooper, executive vice president of the local chapter of the American Federation of Government Employees, also said one of the managers put the same decal in his office and provided extras to those who wanted them, Fox News reported.

POLL: Would you vote for a candidate who supported amnesty for illegal aliens?

“We took offense,” Mr. Cooper said, to Fox News. “These two particular individuals have a great amount of influence over individuals who may be gay, who may be African-American, and we have a concern they should not be in a position to exert that influence when it comes to promotions.”

In an email to union members, Mr. Cooper explained that the “Duck Dynasty” decal could very well violate the Civil Rights Act of 1964.

“Phil Robertson has made disparaging remarks against a vast array of people, which created a firestorm in the media in the recent past,” he wrote, Fox News reported.

There goes more of the First Amendment!

I support Phil, we just need to push back against these unions, they are on there way out anyway.

Remember Ronald Reagan? He crushed the Air Traffic Controllers Union. When they went on strike he fired every damned one of them! Unions were created to get people a fair wage and to protect against child labor but what the unions have become is a freaking joke.

I worked at one place in my life that had a union, the United Steel Workers Union when I worked at the Indiana Carton Company and when some of our workers went on strike for no good reason they were given a chance to return to work after lunch and those that didn't were fired.

The union did nothing! So to this union I say screw you! If these people get fired they can sue and they will win. These decals are protected by the 1st. amendment and there is no way they violate the civil rights act!

Phil Robertson may be discriminatory about some things but supporting him with a decal is not!

We need to start fighting back for a lot of things. I said the other day that all White, Christian, Straight , Gun ownering Constitution loving  Americans need to unite and and do what the others do and file some huge lawsuit against the Government because we feel discriminated against. We need to make our voices heard like the other groups do because we are quickly becomming the minority. If we are not vocal now we will be soon.

i with you on that this govenment amd the unions have done enough to the people

I support Phil, and I have no use for unions.

I support Phil. I also have no use for unions. You can sum up what unions want in three words...."more, more, more"....

I've also been known to shoot a few ducks and know how to use a duck call, too!!!

Go Phil!!!!

Alan Cooper, executive vice president of the local chapter of the American Federation of Government Employees Needs to get a life - - - -

End the unions

there goes fascism which is a spin off of a socialist tyrannical draconian state-remember you have no rights in a socialist and or tyrannical state.......actually it is ORWELLIAN which is all of the above and more

Whyn't Mr. Cooper stick his nose up his own controlling anal retentive ass, and leave people alone. As for union members offended, let's dig into their lives for issues, and then let many people complain that they find these found things to be repellant and offensive, and that these union members should be fired for such!

The unions need to do as the Robbers Barons of the 1900s did.   Build a few hospitals, libraries

and such and the people will forget about the abuses.





Rush Limbaugh Explains How Robert Mueller
Will Attempt To Financially Destroy President Trump

 Special Counsel Robert Mueller has crossed President Trump’s “red line” after issuing a subpoena for documents related to the Trump Organization’s business dealings with Russia.

New York Times reports:

The special counsel, Robert S. Mueller III, has subpoenaed the Trump Organization to turn over documents, including some related to Russia, according to two people briefed on the matter. The order is the first known time that the special counsel demanded documents directly related to President Trump’s businesses, bringing the investigation closer to the president. […] The Trump Organization has said that it never had real estate holdings in Russia, but witnesses recently interviewed by Mr. Mueller have been asked about a possible real estate deal in Moscow. In 2015, a longtime business associate of Mr. Trump’s emailed Mr. Trump’s lawyer Michael Cohen at his Trump Organization account claiming he had ties to President Vladimir V. Putin of Russia and said that building a Trump Tower in Moscow would help Mr. Trump’s presidential campaign.

Radio host Rush Limbaugh theorized on his program Friday that one of Mueller’s true objectives is to financially destroy President Trump.

Partial transcript via Breitbart News:

And these requests, the subpoena for documents from the Trump Organization, I ask you again, what has that to do with the campaign and with collusion and with the Russians? They’ve already been looking into Trump business in Russia with the Miss, what is it, USA, whatever his pageant is.

Do you all remember during the early days of the campaign there was news that Trump, in a tax return something like 20 years ago, took a $900 million deduction that was granted and survived an audit by the IRS? Now, I forget the details. It had to do with losses that he had incurred in that year in building things. It was around 900 or $920 million deduction. I’ll never forget when it was reported because most people will never come close to ever having that in a lifetime, and to have a guy personally write that much off?

Anyway, I think Mueller wants that $920 million back. I think Mueller wants to prove that that was a faulty deduction. I think that they want to go back, they want to get Trump’s tax returns because they want to nullify that $900 million deduction, and then they want to collect 20 years of interest and penalties and wipe Trump out.

In the meantime, President Trump’s lawyers are in the process of negotiating with special counsel Robert Mueller to bring the Russia probe to an end, reports Rebecca Ballhaus and Peter Nicholas of the Wall Street Journal.

Mueller’s tentacles continue to reach further and further.

CNN reported that investigators are attempting to determine whether former Blackwater chief Erik Prince misled the  House Intelligence Committee about a meeting he had in Seychelles in January of 2017.

Prince is accused of using the meeting as an opportunity to establish a secret back channel with Russia.

Fox News’ Catherine Herridge spoke with one of President Trump’s personal lawyers about the new subpoena request by Special Counsel Mueller.

According to Herridge, Trump’s lawyer was unaware of the subpoena and said it may be a ‘wrap up’ subpoena or ‘clean up’ subpoena which may signal the end of the investigation.
