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.

ALERT ALERT

 REVEALED: Here’s What Dirty Cop Mueller And His Team
Of Liberal Hack Lawyers Are Costing Taxpayers Per Month

The Mueller ‘Russia’ investigation was built on a foundation of lies and cost taxpayers $6.7 million within the first 5 months!
 
Thanks to AG Sessions for recusing himself, corrupt swamp creature Rosenstein appointed Special Counsel Robert Mueller to target Trump and his team in what is the greatest witch hunt in US political history.

To add insult to injury, Americans are paying over $1 million a month, watching in horror as an innocent president is investigated yet the real criminals–Hillary, Lynch, Obama, Holder, Rice, McCabe, Comey et al walk freely.

The Justice Department released a report Tuesday detailing the cost of Mueller’s investigation from May 17th 2017-Sept 30th 2017.

In four and a half months, American tax payers have paid MILLIONS of dollars for Mueller’s hacks.

Expenses include:

Direct and Reimbursed Expenditures (note 1)
Personnel Compensation and Benefits (note 2) $1,709,597
Travel and Transportation of Persons (note 3) 223,643
Transportation of Things 156
Rent, Communications, and Utilities 362,550
Contractual Services (note 4) 157,339
Supplies and Materials 26,442
Acquisition of Equipment (note 5) 733,969
Total SCO Expenditures (note 6) $ 3,213,695

Mueller’s witch hunt also cost the Justice Department about $3.5 million on work attributable to the ‘Russia’ investigation, according to the DOJ report, totaling $6.7 million!

Americans are mad as hell!

We are paying millions of dollars to pay Trump-hating lawyers who are hell bent on taking down a president who won the election in an electoral landslide all because of a Hillary-funded garbage dossier!

One of the FBI agents was recently removed for sending anti-Trump text messages to an FBI lawyer with whom he was having an affair with.

Another Mueller hack was just revealed to have praised Sally Yates for defying Trump’s travel ban.

In an email obtained by conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch, Andrew Weissmann, special counsel Robert Mueller’s right hand man, praised then-acting attorney general Sally Yates for standing up to President Trump’s travel ban order.

We have been reporting on Mueller’s liberal dream team for months.
So have numerous other media outlets.

We reported in August that the entire team was Trump haters. Here is a summary of the Mueller team –
