His point was that the General Lee appeared with the flag intact in a popular medium as recently as 2005. That disproves your point that "I can't even imagine the fake "outrage" by leftists if they attempted to make a show like Dukes of Hazzard today."

In 2005, the left was busy beating up Bush. Now they can turn their energies elsewhere.

One man's treason is another man's freedom.

The question isn't whether the South had the right to withdraw from the Union and form a separate country. The question is what was the driving force behind it. Southerners today will tell you that it was about states' rights and the freedom to govern apart from Washington, D.C. But in truth it was about the freedom to keep slaves.

False. It was a parody on the old TV series which that car was a part of. If not for the TV series with that car, they would never have gotten away with that from todays PC crowd.

In some ways, the American flag is becoming the new Confederate flag.

I should add, the American flag is now seen as a Republican symbol too.

The element of people who fly that flag don't know what treason means.

I know that but I call it "the treason flag" regardless of the context. I use "Confederate Flag" to refer to a flag officially used by the Confederate States of America for any purpose.

This is a confederate flag:

The rectangular "treason flag" began use by the Klan and other figures long after the Confederacy had ceased to exist.

There is nothing "politically correct" about condemning the glorification of treason against your country. Free democratic nation states built modern Western society. It's slavery that's contrary to the march of the last 300 years of history.


Great post.

It's like saying that Germany bans Nazi symbols because of PC.

Those symbols were banned after the war because of the ruin that philosophy represents caused on German society and on millions of other innocents outside its borders.

Italy banned the National Fascist Party (putting that ban into their Constitution) because of the destruction and misery that that philosophy wrought onto that country and its people.

Political correctness has nothing to do with it.

Only apologists for hate and segregation believe that.

You know what I mean.

I see the American flag window clings on pickup trucks and bumper stickers that read, "The colors don't run". 99.9% of the time it's a white male, "right-wing" type. I see these people when I go to Walmart. Or the state fair. I don't see them at Whole Foods. I'm sure you won't see them at the DNC in Charlotte.

I have never seen it on reruns. In that not that I didn't watch it but that I didn't see it come on. It must have been entirely gone by 1990, or during weird hours on specialty cable channels.

It currently airs at 1:00 and 2:00 a.m. Tuesday through Saturday (i.e., weeknights) on CMT.

His point was that the General Lee appeared with the flag intact in a popular medium as recently as 2005.

There were also made-for-TV movies in 1997 and 2000 starring the original cast (with Toby Keith and Mac Davis in the latter), and a direct to DVD prequel to the feature film in 2007.

It didn't in the early 90's when there were fewer cable channels and before CMT's network decay.
