Confederate Flag Stupidity Continues
From CBS News:
Trouble is afoot in Hazzard County.
Warner Bros., the studio behind the TV show "The Dukes of Hazzard," has decided to cease selling products featuring the Confederate flag.
A Warner Bros. spokesperson said the company will no longer license replicas or vehicle model kits based off the General Lee, according to a Vulture exclusive. In "The Dukes of Hazzard," the iconic car had a Confederate flag painted on its roof.
"Warner Bros. Consumer Products has one licensee producing die-cast replicas and vehicle model kits featuring the General Lee with the confederate flag on its roof - as it was seen in the TV series," the spokesman told Vulture via email. "We have elected to cease the licensing of these product categories." http://www.cbsnews.com/news/warner-bros-to-stop-dukes-of-hazzard-general-lee-toys-with-confederate-flag/
So, the only people losing are going to be the folks at warnerBros.
And th epeople who now own the merchandise just had their property increase in value.
In addition, whatever merchandise that is still out there will fly off the shelves and it brings more attention to the Dukes of Hazzard.
Just more liberal stupidity.
