I considered writing /end sarcasm in that post, but didn't think it would be needed. I guess I was wrong.


It made me laugh.

I just saw this tweet.

Pro golfer Bubba Watson to paint over Confederate flag on General Lee, a 1969 Dodge Charger from 1980s TV series 'The Dukes of Hazzard,' which he has owned since 2012 - @FOX46News

If i owned one of those cars that was actually from the show I would never ever ever paint over the flag..

PC is out of controle..

Ya how is that 'PC out of control'?

Think we need to figure out the difference of personal choice and law.

How the hell would anyone know he had one of the cars and what he was going to do with it if he didn't put the info out there himself? Or are you trying to say that a bunch of overly PC people hunted down the transfer of ownership of the car and started harassing him into compliance?

Lets get back to the context of why this 'PC stuff' happened.

Only after a kid went in and shot 9 people and championed that flag left and right did he decide to paint it.

Could it be that some people are seeing that it is time for a change?

You don't know for a fact that he isn't doing this on his own accord.

So who is sticking their head in the sand?

Posting that tweet I was not trying to piss anyone off lol. I was saying as a collector of all kinds of shi$ I would never paint over that flag.

It is going to lose value and not be original anymore and that hurts me to the core..

I don't care. It's his car. Maybe he had a chance to smoke some Oregonian green wrapped in rainbow paper while watching MSNBC and the commies came and re-educated his hick ass?

ETA: Crap, I leaked the plan. Sorry guys.

I'm not mad or pissed so no worries there.
I see your point about it being a collector and some what agree. Selling it may have been the better option.
Are we sure it was an original from the show and not a replica?

He might have felt strong armed to do it, in which I disagree with.
I have said over and over again that if you want to fly it in your private life then go crazy.

Now him being a celebrity, he is in a different situation since he has a brand to look out for.
So it is possible that he is doing some CYA.

The other side of that coin is that in light of recent events he has made a personal decision that the flag doesn't need to be on a car that he owns anymore.

Only he knows that answer, and to jump around screaming PC police seems quick to the gun to me.

Does golds gym have a history of oppression and slavery?

Context Alien, context.
Verrry important.

There are many straws out there, we must refuse to grasp them.

The confederate flag doesnt have that history either. Its just a flag it never oppressed anyone or hung anyone or called a black guy a nI####.

People do that and instead of blaming ourselves we blame a piece of cloth with a design on it.

If it wasnt for that damm flag everything would be peachy.

And it was the symbol of those people.

Just like the swastika didn't kill anyone but no one is up in arms that we don't like those flying around.
