Bobby Jindal Backs Phil Robertson: I Remember When TV networks believed in the First Amendment

Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal has released a statement in response to A&E's decision to indefinitely suspend Duck Dynasty patriarch Phil Robertson for religious comments he made about homosexuality in GQ Magazine. The Robertson family lives in Monroe, Louisiana.

“Phil Robertson and his family are great citizens of the State of Louisiana. The politically correct crowd is tolerant of all viewpoints, except those they disagree with. I don’t agree with quite a bit of stuff I read in magazine interviews or see on TV," Jindal said. In fact, come to think of it, I find a good bit of it offensive. But I also acknowledge that this is a free country and everyone is entitled to express their views. In fact, I remember when TV networks believed in the First Amendment. It is a messed up situation when Miley Cyrus gets a laugh, and Phil Robertson gets suspended."
