One of the more moral, family-oriented, down home TV shows in history has been bitten by the Liberal Mob Control Freak Feeding Frenzy & Hysteria.
The debate over the Confederate flag continues to spread to the entertainment world.
What Debate??, the Liberal Thought Police don’t debate, they destroy what they can’t control.
A week after Warner Bros. announced it would no longer sanction the manufacturing of “Dukes of Hazzard” merchandise featuring the flag, TV Land announced it’s pulling reruns of the 1980s’ TV series featuring John Schneider and Tom Wopat as Bo and Luke Duke in fictional Hazzard County, Georgia.
In a statement to ABC News, the network confirmed Wednesday that the show had been “removed” from its schedule, while declining to comment further.
Reruns can still be found on CMT and online.
I’m sure they’ll be hound within days.
“That flag on top of The General Lee made a statement that the values of the rural south were the values of courage and family and good times,” he wrote on Facebook last week. “I think all of Hazzard Nation understands that the Confederate Battle flag is the symbol that represents the indomitable spirit of independence which keeps us ‘makin’ our way the only way we know how,'”
“I will fight these people until hell freezes over,” Jones wrote. “And then I will fight them on the ice.”

TV Land, which is owned by Viacom (), pulling the series comes a week after Warner Bros. consumer products said that it would stop licensing General Lee toy cars and models.
So much for “tolerance” and “content of your character”.
“Are people who grew up watching the show now suddenly racists?” John Schneider asks.
John Schneider is blasting TV Land for its decision to erase from its schedule — due its depiction of the Confederate flag — reruns of The Dukes of Hazzard, the wholesome show that made the actor a teen idol in the 1980s.
“The Dukes of Hazzard was and is no more a show seated in racism than Breaking Bad was a show seated in reality,” Schneider told The Hollywood Reporter on Wednesday.
TV Land confirmed Wednesday that it pulled the show in the aftermath of the June 17 shooting in Charleston, S.C., perpetrated by Dylann Roof, who was a fan of the Confederacy, known in the 19th century for its defense of slavery.
Schneider says his residuals from the show “have never been much to write home about,” but he would like the show to persist because of the old-fashioned values it promotes, such as honesty, courage, chivalry, rebelliousness and the like. Those who seek to malign the show because the famous car it featured had a Confederate flag painted on the roof are missing the point, he says.
“I am saddened that one angry and misguided individual can cause one of the most beloved television shows in the history of the medium to suddenly be seen in this light,” Schneider said Wednesday. “Are people who grew up watching the show now suddenly racists? Will they have to go through a detox and a 12-step program to kick their Dukes habit? ‘Hi… My name is John. I’m a Dukesoholic.’”
“Throwing this particular baby out with the bathwater seems reactionary and overly PC to me,” Schneider told THR last week. “If the flag was a symbol of racism, then Bo and Luke and Daisy and Uncle Jesse were a pack of wild racists, and that could not be further from the truth.”(TIME)

In our age there is no such thing as ‘keeping out of politics.’ All issues are political issues, and politics itself is a mass of lies, evasions, folly, hatred and schizophrenia.
To the past or to the future, to an age when thought is free, from the Age of Big Brother, from the Age of the Thought Police, from a dead man — greetings!— George Owell.
Remember in Liberal Controlled Amerika, 1 day you can be “Fighting the system like a true modern day Robin Hood,” next day you’re a symbol of oppression.
So you better watch what you watch on TV, see on the Internet, text on your phone or even say out loud because Big Brother Liberal is Watching you!!!
So you better not be watching something they disapprove of…
