Hank Williams Jr Tried to Warn Us

As noted yesterday, New York Times propagandist Charles Blow marked Pepe le Pew for cancelation for allegedly promoting rape culture (unlike the rap that liberals revere). Pepe was already vanishing. Deadline reports that a decision had been made to delete the amorous French skunk from a Space Jam sequel:

Pepe was set to appear in a black-and-white Casablanca-like Rick’s Cafe sequence. Pepe, playing a bartender, starts hitting on a woman at the bar played by [Greice] Santo. He begins kissing her arm, which she pulls back, then slamming Pepe into the chair next to hers. She then pours her drink on Pepe, and slaps him hard, sending him spinning in a stool, which is then stopped by LeBron James’ hand. James and Bugs Bunny are looking for Lola, and Pepe knows her whereabouts. Pepe then tells the guys that Penelope cat has filed a restraining order against him. James makes a remark in the script that Pepe can’t grab other Tunes without their consent.

Santo isn’t happy about the cut:

The actress-singer has been a victim of sexual harassment and has spoken out against it; even recording a debut single “Você Você” back in February 2018 with multi- Grammy-winning producer Humberto Gatica to empower women to stand up to sexual predators and sexual harassment. Santo even has a non-profit, Glam with Greice, which aims to empower victims of domestic violence to change their lives for the better. Santo took joy in shooting the Space Jam sequel scene with Pepe, because the skunk finally gets his comeuppance.

She must not have gotten the memo from the NY Times that the mere existence of Pepe le Pew reifies rape culture. Whether he is presented as an object of ridicule as in the original cartoons or subjected to physical punishment as in the deleted scene makes no difference.

It’s like the forbidden n-word. Even to say it in the context of denouncing someone else for saying it will get you canceled, as Papa John Schnatter learned the hard way. If liberals don’t like something, it must not exist at all. Context is irrelevant.

Pepe isn’t the only one to bid us adieu:

Last June, the old Looney Tunes streaming on HBO Max banned Elmer Fudd from using a gun, given the modification in response to US gun violence.

Speedy Gonzales survives for now. Although his days are numbered, he has his defenders, like comedian and actor Gabriel Iglesias, aka “Fluffy”:

Sadly, cancel culture will catch every last atom of what was until yesterday American culture and sanctimoniously grind it out of existence unless serious pushback begins quickly.

Hank Williams Jr tried to warn us about what they are doing to Bugs Bunny & Co in the song “The Coalition to Ban Coalitions”:

Now the latest thing they want to stamp out is violence on TV
And the worst of all is that Oscar winning rabbit Bugs Bunny
Farewell Foghorn Leghorn, so long Yosemite Sam
They’re messin’ with our heroes and we got to stop ’em now

After our culture has been erased, kids will grow up on what liberals regard as more wholesome fare, like Cardi B videos.

It would be a better world if more people listened to Hank Jr.
