Is Congress Crossing the Line into Purging History to “Fight Racism”?

Purging history isn’t going to do anything to spread tolerance or end bigotry because such actions constitute intolerant bigotry. As I said before, it is completely appropriate for voters in a state (through their representatives or by some direct referendum depending on how the system is set up) to remove a Confederate flag from state property or to stop allowing a Confederate flag as a license plate option.

Next Step in Mass Hysteria: TV Land Stops Dukes of Hazzard Reruns

Dukes of Hazzard is suddenly unfit to broadcast. The stupidity and moral panic is bottomless. It just keeps getting worse.

It was arguably a way of reducing one’s IQ. But it’s a free country and, I am pretty sure it was as anti-racist as any show could be. The spin-off actually featured a black/white partnership, if I recall rightly. The only stereotypes I remember were a lot of exploitative sexism (Daisy) and the idea that the South Read more […]
