Shouldn't they do background checks & Some investigating before Offering idiots shows?
These dudes are NOT the Property Brothers! Drew & Johnathan Scott are also twins with a couple of shows on HGTV - but they are nice Canadian guys..not those pictured above!

It's a sad thing for society that idiots like this exist at all, let alone as a pair of twins. But maybe it is an indication that a predisposition to bigotry is partially genetic?

Oh no, Roberto M., don't make bigotry into something genetically predetermined, even if it's only partially, because that would give every bigot or racist the excuse that he or she can't help themselves from doing it. It's bad enough these Talibangelists don't take responsibility for the result of their prayer rallies, don't let them get away with not being responsible for where their hate is coming from.

Thanks Carrie. The last thing we need are more intolerant bigots on TV. They're entitled to their opinions, but should use their freedom of speech wisely and keep it to themselves and not put actions behind their intolerance.

Noted. Thanks, Carrie. Glad to see these evil twins eliminated from the network. We don't need any more hatred on TV.

Well some good news. I have just cancelled my TV as I am fed up with all the media brainwashing.

"Christianity lays down life and sets you free"? Is that what those lynching black people before church were doing or the spanish during the Inquisition? Give me a break. Good for HGTV for not giving these idiotic bigots air time.

These guys are so sick! Is it because we get so much information today that religious bigotry seems to be getting worse, or has it always been that way?

Sick and twisted twins - who taught them this stuff? Very sad to waste your life on hate and to discriminate - Glad HGTV did the right thing.

Kudos to HGTV. Everyone is free to express their personal views, but no one is obligated to give them a platform on TV. We have enough nut jobs on TV already.

I am a very liberal person, but this is freedom of speech, so they are not allowed to speak there peace of mind, it seems everyone else can but not straight or Christian people. Everyone has the choice of speaking there feelings, .
Peace

Freedom of speech which is inflammatory, hateful, and discriminates against others does not and should not be accepted or promoted by anyone.

The hate I have heard so far has been from all the post, I have gay friends and non Christian friends, 99% have never spoke the hate I have read on these post, it seems it is all right for all you to show so much hate, but let someone disagree with you and they are the bigots, it does seem like it is all one sided, yours.

I don't believe I spoken any hateful comments to anyone here. Sorry if anyone feels otherwise. I try to be reasonable ~ evidently I haven't succeeded.

Tom, if you actually are a liberal you talk about freedom of speech like a Repug/Tea Bagged buffoon. US Constitutionally protected free speech, is only protected from government and even that protection is not all inclusive, you can not yell fire in a theatre or otherwise endanger the public, slander /liable are not protected, lying to make commercial sales is not protected(unfortunately that does not apply selling politicians or ideologies, incitement to riot or violence is not protected.... I think you doth protest too much and I guess you are not aware of just how the imbecilic statement, "I have Gay friends and non-Christian friends..." makes you sound. And what no non-white friends. Quite frankly calling out the Bigoted, Misogynistic, Homophobic, Christian Supremacists for being unacceptable Misogynists, Homophobes, Christianists, and Bigots is not hate speech it is Taxonomy at the least and setting the limits of ethically acceptability for social norms at the best. You are right that the Reich-wing WASP brothers and their father have the right to say what they want and contingent on that right is their being held accountable economically and socially. But sorry neither you or they have the right to start playing the victim card.

I guess "All in the Family" , "The Jeffersons"(George's dislike of white people) will never be viewed again.

Funny Allan Y. I was just thinking the same thing! Their writers had a good way of giving humour to it, like they actually didn't mean it when out came a bigot remark. I have never seen the show that is being talked about here, and I would hit speed change anyway.
Thanks Carrie.
