Maybe they’ll just trot out that “Smart Car” instead.

Obama's regulators gave them 2 choices, either remove the flag or...

The Confederate Flag is as much a part of General Lee as the make and model of car itself.


Next step for the PC idiots will be to rename the car. Can’t have it named after a confederate general, now can we? And then they’ll change the car’s color because its too close to the background of the stars and bars. Disgusting beyond belief.

Well, if the libs have their way, the real General Lee, along with other famous Southern general will lumped in with the likes of Hitler, Stalin, Pol Pot, and other various and sundry genocidal maniacs.

When it is all done, the Civil War will be a one issue conflict... guess what it will be?

How did you know Whoopi would be in the next film? She’s too old for Daisy Duke though, she’ll be playing the Boss Gazelle (Hog was too offensive to her).

Isn't the real outrage that they're still making Dukes of Hazzard movies?

And wouldn't it be simpler to keep the flag on the car and make one or both of the brothers African-American?

For all I know, Schneider, Wopat, and Bach might even become Black if it meant getting big screen work again.

Are they going to color it out of reruns too?

Just keep on pissing people off. Anyone who objects to the Confederate Flag is just playing tag-a-long. It wasn’t “offensive in 1980, it sure isn’t so today.

Some people really do need to grow up and get a life. To worry about this type of stuff when you’ve got crime and drugs amok, underachievement, illegitimacy at 73%, etc.

But I guess this is the sort of “change” people voted for huh?

If James West can be black, anything is possible.

That should increase the value of the original versions.

And the world just continues to get more pathetic by the day.

*shakes head* A country that demands diversity shouldnt be upset when it happens. But in the name of inclusion, the General Lee is gone, the Greeen Lantern is gay, and Chaz Bono is now a man..

From now on the car will be called The Private Skippy and will be a flat gray Chevy Volt.

Eco-warriors will battle the Evil Bigness to save the Granola Farm.

Those of you who say that's the dumbest thing you ever heard of just haven't seen the first show yet.
