Counter Cultured Article: Duck Dynasty Quacking Its Way to the Top


I’ve penned a column at Counter Cultured about the new season premiere of Duck Dynasty on A&E. The show is truly quacktastic! Read below:

Last Wednesday, the fourth season of Duck Dynasty premiered on A&E. The hour-long season premiere documented the “Redneck Renewal” between Robertson family patriarch Phil Robertson and his wife Miss Kay. It was watched by nearly 12 million viewers–becoming the most watched nonfiction series in cable history.

What best explains this?

Duck Dynasty departs from conventional TV shows by focusing on the importance of family, outdoors sports, small business, and Judeo-Christian values–the very things that make this country great. The beard-donning Robertson men along with their sympathetic wives and good-natured brood should be celebrated in American entertainment and culture. If the Robertson family continues to expand their brand and message, we’ll be hearing less from the Kardashians. (Thank goodness!)

The Implications of Sperm Donor Dads

In an age where marriage, family, and Judeo-Christian values are under siege, it is important to pose the alternative. With contraceptives, abortion, and other unorthodox practices readily available and accepted, sperm donors should not come as a surprise.

In my time at college, I have seen ads in my university paper calling for egg or sperm donors. Most college newspapers advertise the same services. They entertain offers to make bank by giving sperm or eggs to labs for research and/or  “humanitarian” causes.

In a time where students need money, this seems like a good prospect. Why not – give your sperm off  through little to no effort and make money! How awesome is that?

Nevertheless, do students who partake in this understand the implications of their actions? Do they understand how many children they may potentially father?

My sister Anna Maria Hoffman, who also contributes to TheCollegeConservative, expounds on this unethical and equally demoralizing practice in her column “Sperm Donor Daddy: The Breakdown of Society“:

“On September 12, 2011, Style Exposed aired a program called “Sperm Donor”, which features 33-year old Ben Siesler, a man who has fathered 74 children. When he was in law school at George Mason University, he donated to a local sperm bank for three years and never knew he fathered so many children until recently. For each month he donated his sperm, he received $900. Throughout the documentary, he has trouble telling his fiancée Lauren about his 74 children, while they both discuss wedding plans and the possibility of having children of their own in the near future.

NBC’s Omission of “Under God” is Deliberate Attempt to Undermine the U.S.

During the U.S. Open golf championship this past weekend, NBC omitted “under God” from the Pledge of Allegiance ad. Shortly afterward, they issued a weak apology expressing ‘regret’ for this mishap.

The Washington Examiner reported on it below:

“We began our coverage of this final round just about three hours ago, and when we did it was our intent to begin the coverage of this U.S. Open championship with a feature that captured the patriotism of our national championship being held in our nation’s capital for the third time,” announcer Dan Hicks told viewers. “Regrettably, a portion of the Pledge of Allegiance that was in that feature was edited out. It was not done to upset anyone, and we’d like to apologize to those of you who were offended by it.”

Here’s the ‘formal apology’:

Undoubtedly, this move to nix “under God” from the Pledge of Allegiance is not new.
Public schools have been vigilant in their efforts to undermine religion, Judeo-Christian principles, and longstanding American traditions for many years. (I recall when I was in elementary school, everyone said the Pledge without hesitation–even if they didn’t agree with it. Many students can attest to this too.)
Since I moved on to college, the Pledge of Allegiance came under siege more.
The people currently in charge of creating school curricula want to discourage the recitation of the Pledge of Allegiance and a whole host of other things. Whether it is skipping out on this or abstaining from saying it, the cultural Marxists are succeeding in their efforts to demoralize American values…Nevertheless, their efforts can and must be thwarted.
Whether or not one is religious, the Pledge of Allegiance is symbolic to the United States. If it is tampered with, then everything goes.

Bring Conservatism 101 to Your Campus

College campuses in the United States are overrun by liberal bias. If you deny this fact, you are probably one who buys into the lies and hate your professors teach. Think I’m crazy? Go to an Ethnic Studies, political science, history, language, or Middle Eastern Studies class. You’ll find anti-American, anti-Israel, anti-Judeo-Christian, anti-female, etc. bias being shoved down students’ throats. Republicans and conservatives are portrayed as drooling idiots and racists, while liberals and Democrats are worshiped like rock stars and celebrities.

If I had the time and patience, I would bring Conservatism 101 to UCSD. Nevertheless, I’ll continue to report for The California Review, where  leftist bias and crazy happenings at UCSD will be exposed and brought straight to you.

If you want to do something remarkable on your campus, might I suggest you start Conservatism 101? Watch the promo video here:

Atheist Awareness Week at UCSD? Go Figure

I stumbled upon this flier at Muir College today. Of course, it was very odd and striking, so I thought I’d share it with you all.

I don’t understand why there’s even a week dedicated to atheism. Universities preach it left and right; usually at the expense of Judeo-Christian principles. Yet, in order to demoralize religion, the Rationalist Club thought it imperative to host.

Nevertheless, this is rich. Share your thoughts on this week and let me know if you agree that it is preposterous!

The Cross, the center of much controversy, sit...

I urge everyone in San Diego to go to this event on January 15th. It is important to preserve this memorial and Judeo-Christian values. From Sarah Bond:

On January 4, 2011 the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that the
Mt Soledad Veterans Memorial Cross is unconstitutional because
it conveys the message of “state-endorsed religion”.

Are you tired of judicial activism and legislation from the bench?
Are you ready to stand up and defend the Mt Soledad Veterans Memorial Cross…once again?
Will this ruling have national implications?
What can you do?
