When the controversy over the Confederate Battle Flag erupted (because somehow the CBF was implicated in the mass murder of nine people in a way the Koran is never), leftist apologists were declaring that, “This is only about taking that flag off Government buildings and putting it in a museum. No one is talking about banning the Confederate Flag.”
And then the Obama regime decided to remove the flag from museums, too.
So, just like when they said they were not going to force conscientious objectors into participating in gay weddings, the left was lying.
But you want to know the real reason the rainbow brownshits want ‘The Dukes of Hazzard’ off the air? Because it isn’t about the CBF, it’s more about the show’s underlying message.
The Dukes were Southern ‘good ol’ boys,’ economically disadvantaged and disarmed by a corrupt state that deprived them of firearms. Yet. they stood up to, and repeatedly defeated, a greedy and corrupt state authority (Boss Hogg) who manipulated Law Enforcement (Sheriff Roscoe Coltrane) into an instrument of oppression against his opponents.
You can see why this is an unwelcome message in the age of Obama.
