The controversy over "Duck Dynasty" star Phil Robertson and his views on homosexuality could prove to be a tipping point for people "sick and tired of being pushed around by a very small minority of leftists," talk show host Rush Limbaugh said Thursday.

"There could be an effervescing tipping point taking place out there, below the surface, right now, that nobody's aware of, fed up with this," Limbaugh said on his radio show.

"I think a lot of people are sick and tired of being pushed around by a very small minority of leftists who use weapons, like political correctness and censorship, intimidation, and everything else, in order to shut up the people who say things they don't want to hear or disagree with," he added.

Limbaugh said he thought the Robertson family was more interested in using their show "to speak up and spread their Christian values," than to "spread the word about their duck business."

The homosexual community makes up a "tiny percentage" of the population, while Christians comprise over 200 million people, Limbaugh said. He argued it was a minority dominating "political correctness and speech, and even behavior."

The A&E network suspended Robertson from the show Thursday over the controversy. Limbaugh maintained the only one who had been harmed from the issue was Robertson, who lost his job on the show.

"Phil Robertson never did anything to anybody. And, he still hasn't done anything to anybody. He's the only one that's been really discriminated against here. He lost his gig at the 'Duck Dynasty' show," Limbaugh said.

"At some point, enough people are going to say, 'Okay, enough of this.' And, they're going to stand up and say, 'Just shut up.'"
