Moonbats dislike America in general, but they truly hate the South. So they are culturally cleansing it out of existence. For example:
The 1969 Dodge Charger from “The Dukes of Hazzard,” known to the world as the General Lee, prominently features the Confederate flag on its roof in the popular 1970s-1980s TV show. Some reports now say the flag will be removed from certain toy versions of the car, and at least one former “Dukes” cast member tells TODAY he’s furious.
Exactly what products might be altered isn’t clear. As reported by ScreenCrush, a poster to HobbyTalk.com’s message board wrote there that he was told by a sales rep for the Tomy toy company that “starting January 1, 2013 all Dukes of Hazzard General Lee vehicles will not be allowed to be produced with the Confederate flag on the top of the vehicle. This directive has been passed onto us from the licensor Warner Brothers.”
A Warner Bros. rep denies the story, but General Lee vehicles with the flag missing or covered up like an obscenity have already appeared.
Actor Ben Jones played the General Lee’s mechanic, Cooter Davenport. He responds:
“More than 33 years since the show premiered on CBS-TV on Friday nights, Warner Bros. has issued a new and terribly insulting attack on the South, a region and a culture which Hollywood has trashed for decades. Some unnamed genius at the company feels that the flag is ‘offensive to some’ and therefore it has no business on a classic TV comedy about a bunch of good ol’ boys and girls in the Southern mountains. This is a new level of ‘P.C.’ idiocy. I don’t know about you, but I am tired of being insulted by morons.”
Jones is fighting a losing battle. Already the General Lee has been banned by NASCAR in the name of being “inclusive.”
It’s the death by 1,000 cuts approach. Who’s going to go to war over a flag on a toy? Then one day you look around and see that every reference to your culture has been deleted.
