Governors, former Vice Presidential nominees -- just about everybody has an opinion about the "Duck Dynasty" brouhaha.

Sarah Palin was one of many of the show's fans to take to social media after news hit that Phil Robertson had been indefinitely suspended by A&E following his controversial statements about homosexuality in an interview with GQ Magazine.

Palin went on Facebook to voice her reaction, charging that the suspension is an attack on freedom of speech.

"Free speech is an endangered species," she wrote, alongside a photo of herself with the cast of the show. "Those intolerants hatin and taking on the Duck Dynasty patriarch for voicing his personal opinion are taking on all of us."

Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal also voiced support for his embattled constituents.

"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 dont agree with quite a bit of stuff I read in magazine interviews or see on TV," Jindal said in a statement. "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."
