Moonbats Start Purging Classic Movies

Given that there is no sector of society more rigidly controlled by leftist Jacobins than entertainment, it is only a matter of time until the War on History turns its attention from tearing down statues of Robert E. Lee and Christopher Columbus to purge our cultural history of classic movies.

Anything filmed earlier than last week probably violates some aspect of ever-evolving political correctness. Christian Toto notes that the movie purge is already getting started:

Two years ago, a Memphis theater nixed a screening of the 1939 classic “Gone with the Wind” because of its “insensitive” content.

Disney’s Oscar-winning “Song of the South” won’t be seen on the company’s forthcoming streaming platform. The 1946 film’s antiquated, and some say racist, portrayal of black life turned the movie into cultural poison. It’s never made it to home video, and that’s unlikely to change in the near future.

Once an actor has been unpersoned, anything he appeared in may be subject to erasure. For example, Bounce TV has pulled reruns of The Cosby Show, HBO disappeared all programming including Louis C.K., and Amazon declined to release Woody Allen’s A Rainy Day in New York due to sexual shenanigans, which constitute political crimes in the #MeToo era.

A purge would be bad news for fans of classic westerns, considering that moonbats have already demanded that John Wayne Airport be renamed because the Duke was supposedly racist.

If you want to watch classic movies on cable, you will probably end up at Turner Classic Movies. Consider the rabidly left-wing politics of hosts like Ben Mankiewicz, Eddie Muller, and Alec Baldwin, and that TCM was founded by demented leftist Ted Turner. Not exactly a trustworthy guardian of our cultural heritage.

People used to collect DVDs. Increasingly, movies we buy live somewhere off in the cloud. It isn’t hard to imagine John Wayne movies simply vanishing overnight. Then they would erase the next retroactive thought criminal, then the next and the next.
