Gone With the Wind, Police Shows Purged

Iconic heroes of the past are not the only targets of the resurgent jihad against our cultural heritage inspired by the Black Lives Matter riots. Popular culture also must be purged of anything not in lockstep with today’s leftist ideology.

Gone With the Wind is among the most famous classic movies of all time. If you have it on DVD, you might be wise to bury it in the backyard where it will be safe. The movie has been judged to glorify the antebellum South, which is a thought crime. It has therefore been pulled by HBO Max:

In a statement, HBO Max said “Gone With the Wind” is a “product of its time and depicts some of the ethnic and racial prejudices that have, unfortunately, been commonplace in American society.” When the movie returns to the platform it will be “with a discussion of its historical context and a denouncement of those very depictions, but will be presented as it was originally created, because to do otherwise would be the same as claiming these prejudices never existed. If we are to create a more just, equitable and inclusive future, we must first acknowledge and understand our history.”

In practice, this means erasing our history, as the War on Statues has made obvious. Once the movie has been warehoused, it will eventually be forgotten.

More contemporary entertainment has also been targeted for cultural genocide:

On Tuesday, the long-running show “Cops,” a reality program which showed the police in a very favorable light, was canceled by the Paramount Network.

Police are bad. Those who disagree are racists. They too are bad and must be reformed with more politically correct entertainment.

Cops ran for over 30 years. Don’t expect to see reruns; they will lie with Dukes of Hazard reruns at the bottom of the memory hole.

The popular show Live P.D. has also been canceled for featuring police officers in a positive light:

A&E has canceled its flagship series and one of the highest-rated shows on basic cable. A week after Live P.D. was pulled in the wake of George Floyd’s death, the reality series’ hiatus has been made permanent.

Crime dramas have been a television staple for years. They will have to be replaced. Stay tuned for lots more vapid sitcoms with predominantly black casts.

Every time an event occurs that can serve as a pretext, liberals go into overdrive scrubbing the culture of anything they deem out of step with their repugnant ideology. It is their natural inclination. The more power they have, the more will be erased.

On tips from Lyle, Stormfax, Scott D, Dragon’s Lair, R F, and Chris Neilson.
