Major retailers have removed any merchandise related to the Confederacy from their inventory and Warner Bros. is no longer producing any Dukes of Hazzard memorabilia depicting the Confederate flag.
The assault on this admittedly painful era of American history continued this week with TV Land’s decision to remove the aforementioned program from its lineup.
When news began to spread that The Dukes of Hazzard was no longer on the schedule, a network source confirmed rebroadcasts of the classic 1970s series had been curtailed without offering any additional details.
In the left’s ongoing battle to remove any trace of the controversial Confederate banner, an iconic television series – not to mention a 1969 Dodge Charger called the General Lee – has been a recurring target. Even before the South Carolina shooting that sparked renewed debate over the flag, an AutoTrader ad campaign featured a sanitized General Lee without its trademark Confederate roof decal.
