Following the mass killing of 9 parishioners at a South Carolina church on June 17, 2015, TV Land has announced that it will stop airing re-runs of the Dukes of Hazzard, because of the show’s use of the Confederate Battle Flag.
Are they pulling Hogan’s Heroes too? Those Nazi’s had that funny shaped emblem on everything. Oh…we are not talking about the Jews? TV Land is just being selective (tragedy of the week type thinking). I’m sure months before the shooting in SC, TV Land already had in motion plans to remove the Dukes of Hazzard. Also Americans who owned no slaves died under that Southern Battle Flag, and had little choice but to fight for the South. There was slavery under “both” flags and ongoing racial oppression under the current flag for over a hundred years following the Civil War. So what flag is calling what flag the “R” word?
