TV Land Pulls Dukes of Hazzard TV Show from Its Schedule … Remember When it was OK to Just Watch TV?
THE UNITED STATES HAS OFFICIALLY LOST ITS PC MIND … WHO KNEW DAISY DUKE WAS RESPONSIBLE FOR THE EVILS OF RACISM.
Just when you thought liberal thought and political correctness could not get any worse in the United States, it did. Yesterday, TV Land pulled the TV show, ‘The Dukes of Hazzard’ off their programming schedule. In the wake of the church shooting in South Carolina and the agenda driven attack on the Confederate flag, the Dukes of Hazzard was made to be a scape goat in the out of control PC land we live in. UNREAL. So now an 80′s TV show that was a comedy is too offensive. As stated at RWN, Remember how ‘The Dukes of Hazzard’ was a hotbed of racism and Confederate sympathy? Yeah. Me neither. Let this be a lesson to Americans that are apathetic and asleep at the wheel. Is racism a terrible thing and should the church shooter who killed 9 innocent black church goers an evil individual who should be put down like a rabid animal, yes. However, the LEFT had much more in mind and has exploited this terrible mass shooting for its own agenda.
Following the shootings in Charleston at the hands of a racist, Charleston and the families of the victims stood strong in unison against what Dylann Roof stood for and marched together. The families of those murdered even proclaimed they forgave Roof and prayed for him. For as much as what the good people of Charleston did and stood for following this heinous act, the same cannot be said who have acted in such a cowardly manner. Yes, that includes you TV Land.
TV Land has pulled reruns of The Dukes of Hazzard off its schedule, a spokesperson for the network confirmed to EW on Wednesday.
The network did not comment further or say why the episodes were removed, but the news comes as the show became part of the growing national debate over use of the Confederate flag, which is displayed on the roof of the Duke boys’ car.
Last week, Warner Bros. Consumer Products said it would no longer license toys or models of the iconic 1969 Dodge Charger, dubbed General Lee, joining a number of other retailers vowing to stop selling Confederate flag merchandise in the wake of the deadly shooting in Charleston, South Carolina, earlier this month.
So what’s next on the Liberals agenda to ban … Gone with the Wind? What other TV shows and movies will be found too offensive for the delicate constitutions of the LEFT? Hey, while you are at it, ban the move Glory, they showed Confederate flags in that one too. Does the LEFT even have a clue what the move was about?
Any TV network with a brain would buy the rights to the syndicated broadcasts of the Dukes of Hazzard and make a mint. At what point will there be a backlash to this over the top nonsense, much like what happened when the LEFT and gay activists tried to target Chick Fil-A?
Louis Farrakhan Says, “We need to put the American flag down. Because we’ve caught as much hell under that as the Confederate flag”
I know this is difficult for many of you to say and admit, Rush Limbaugh was right.
It did not take Louis Farrakhan long to prove conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh correct regarding the LEFT going after the American flag next. In an interview with WMAL, Louis Farrakhan stated “We need to put the American flag down. Because we’ve caught as much hell under that as the Confederate flag”. This hateful race-baiter went on to say, “They Don’t Give a Damn About Them 9.? Just days earlier Rush Limbaugh said, “And I’ll make another prediction to you. The next flag that will come under assault, and it will not be long, is the American flag.”
Hmm, who is spewing the hate?
Louis Farrakhan stated “We need to put the American flag down. Because we’ve caught as much hell under that as the Confederate flag” in remarks before the Metropolitan AME Church in Washington, DC on Wednesday first reported by DC’s WMAL.
Farrakhan said, “White folks march with you because they don’t want you upsetting the city, they don’t give a damn about them nine.”
He added that when the police took suspected shooter Dylann Roof to Burger King they were saying “You did a good job. Kill all them [bleep.]”
Later, he declared, “I don’t know what the hell the fight is about over the Confederate flag. We need to put the American flag down. Because we’ve caught as much hell under that as the Confederate flag,” comments that were meant with cheers and applause.
C’mon LEFT, c’mon Media Matters, c’mon race-baitors, says it … RUSH WAS RIGHT!
eBay to Ban Sale of Confederate Flag Merchandise … Really, They Missed A Lot and They Seemed to Have Forgot to Remove the 2008 Hillary Clinton Campaign Buttons
This is what the slippery slope of censorship looks like … Its one thing for a State not to fly it at the Capitol, but now comes the purge of all things with the Confederate flag.
The hypocrisy of Hillary Clinton and the Confederate Flag …
It would appear that eBay has jumped on the band wagon to ban the sale of Confederate flag merchandise. According to eBay spokesperson Johnna Hoff, “We have decided to prohibit Confederate flags, and many items containing this image, because we believe it has become a contemporary symbol of divisiveness and racism.” REALLY? Because as of this morning, a simple search on eBay of “Confederate flag” brought up over 10 pages, 50 items on each page, of Confederate flag merchandise. So what is next, pretending like Civil War never took place and the scrubbing of Southern history?
I personally think slavery was one of our darkest hours in the United States and this existence of racism and bigotry is reprehensible; however, I find the exploitation of a heinous crime disgusting as well. This country has made great strides from the days of slavery, more so than many other countries where it continues today. I am not a fan of the Confederate flag, I am not from the South, I am more of a “Don’t Tread on Me” flag fan. But how long will it be before that symbol offends people? Hell, we have people in this country that are offended by the American flag, Old Glory.
How About this One?
Even Hillary Clinton chimed in on South Carolina’s removal of the Confederate flag from the Capitol building, but maybe Hillary would like to discuss her 2008 Hillary Clinton campaign buttons with the Confederate flag on them complete with Stars and Bars. By the way, that button is for sale on eBay. Oh, but that’s different, that was 8 years ago, what difference does it make. Right? In the video below Hillary Clinton said, “recognizing it as a symbol of our nation’s racist past, that has no place in our present or our future.” Did she feel that way when Bill Clinton signed a Law Honoring Confederacy in Arkansas Flag? Then comes Hillary’s anti-free speech comment, “It shouldn’t fly there, it shouldn’t fly anywhere.” Sorry folks, as long as people are allowed to burn the American flag as an example of free speech, flying a Confederate flag has to be allowed as well. You don’t get to allow one and not the other.
Hillary Clinton Says she appreciates the removal of Confederate Flag, but what about her campaign buttons?
eBay will ban the sale of Confederate flag merchandise, the auction site announced Tuesday, in a decision that follows in the steps of major retailers like Walmart and Sears.
“We have decided to prohibit Confederate flags, and many items containing this image, because we believe it has become a contemporary symbol of divisiveness and racism,” eBay spokesperson Johnna Hoff said in an email to CNN. “This decision is consistent with our long-standing policy that prohibits items that promote or glorify hatred, violence and racial intolerance.”
Hoff added that the company continually monitors and evaluates its 800 million products on its site to ensure that they are “consistent with our core purpose.”
The company’s decision mirrors that of Walmart and Sears, which have also removed Confederate flag products from their stores.
The controversial flag has come under intense scrutiny following a racially motivated mass shooting in Charleston, South Carolina, that left nine African-Americans dead in a historic church. On Monday, South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley also called on the Confederate flag to be taken down from the state’s capitol grounds.
South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley Calls for Removal of Confederate Flag From State Capitol in South Carolina
South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley calls for the removal of Confederate flag from the State Capitol.
Following the shooting of 9 black church goers at the historic Emanuel American Methodist Episcopal Church in Charleston, SC, there has come the call to take the Confederate, Stars and Bars, flag from the South Carolina State Capitol in Columbia. Yesterday, Nikki Haley calls for removal of Confederate flag. Authorities stated that the shooting was a hate crime, and a white supremacist website that may be linked to the shooter, Dylann Roof, has images that apparently show him holding the Confederate battle flag.
South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley called for the removal of the Confederate flag from the grounds of the state Capitol Monday, less than a week after a 21-year-old white man gunned down nine people at a historic African American church.
Support for the flag to come down from leaders around the state and around the country has been steadily growing in the wake of the devastating attack.
“Today, we are here in a moment of unity in our state, without ill will, to say it is time to move the flag from the Capitol grounds,” Haley said during a news conference attended by Republican senators Lindsey Graham and Tim Scott, along with other state leaders.
I can understand the reason for the removal of the flag that divides individuals; however, if anyone thinks that this is the solution to stop racism, you are sorely mistaken. Love and Kindness ends racism, not the removal of a flag. If anything, the removal of the flag will probably fan the flames of the misguided and vile white supremacists. It is kind of playing into this hands and their mantra. However, the love, kindness and forgiveness shown by the families of the shooting victims in Charleston, SC will go farther to help get rid of racism and change hearts than any removal of a flag.
Thousands of People Flock to Arthur Ravenel Jr. Bridge for ‘Unity Chain’ in Honor of Charleston, SC Shooting Victims (VIDEO)
ALL PEOPLE COME TOGETHER TO IN “UNITY CHAIN” MARCH ACROSS CHARLESTON’S ARTHUR RAVENEL JR. BRIDGE …
Thousands of people, black and white, marched across Charleston’s Arthur Ravenel Jr. Bridge Sunday night in a “Unity Chain” in a show of solidarity and support for the nine innocent black church members who were killed at the hands of an evil racist. 21 year old Dylann Roof, the racist who murdered innocent church goers at the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church stated that he wanted to cause a race war. Note to Dylann and his fellow racists … HE FAILED!!! The good people of Charleston, SC came together, black, white and people of all colors, came together to honor the fallen and showed that good always conquers evil.
Thousands of people amassed on Charleston’s Arthur Ravenel Jr. Bridge on Sunday night in an awe-inspiring display of solidarity for the victims of the brutal shooting at an area church on Wednesday.
Marchers filled the more than 2-mile span in what they called the “Bridge to Peace Unity Chain” after nine African-American parishioners of Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church were killed in the incident.
Participants in Sunday’s processions cheered, clapped and sang songs like “This Little Light of Mine” in the middle of the bridge, while marching between Charleston and suburban Mount Pleasant.
Check out the Thousands who came in support
Hundreds of People came to Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church on Sunday, many stood outside as supportive Brothers and Sisters in Christ
UPDATE I: Sadly, not all at the Unity Chain march were promoting Unity … some radical race activists were waiving the Black Nationalist Flag at Charleston Rally.
STEPPING DOWN …
Rachel Dolezal, the woman who faked her racial identity, has resigned as the president of the NAACP Spokane chapter. Rachel Dolezal portrayed herself as a black woman; however, she was outed by her parents as being white. Much of her past was made up. Her estranged parents told reporters last week that she is “Caucasian by birth,” with Czech, Swedish, German and a trace of Native American ancestry, even though she has been representing herself as black for years. The revelation that the Spokane NAACP chapter president was in fact white only had one conclusion. THIS WAS IT. You pretty much knew the handwriting was on the wall when Dolezal was scheduled to address the matter at a chapter meeting on Monday night, but the meeting was postponed.
So how much of this resignation was internal pressure? They can say all the right things externally, but as one can plainly see from the VIDEO below, there were some if not many who were openly upset that a white woman dare pass herself off as black. The activists stated, “I am sorry, you may not copy ‘MY’ people’s struggle.” So why is it being reported that she faked her racial identity, rather than she feels like she is a black woman? Hmm, isn’t that bigoted?
Dear Executive Committee and NAACP Members,
It is a true honor to serve in the racial and social justice movement here in Spokane and across the nation. Many issues face us now that drive at the theme of urgency. Police brutality, biased curriculum in schools, economic disenfranchisement, health inequities, and a lack of pro-justice political representation are among the concerns at the forefront of the current administration of the Spokane NAACP. And yet, the dialogue has unexpectedly shifted internationally to my personal identity in the context of defining race and ethnicity.
I have waited in deference while others expressed their feelings, beliefs, confusions and even conclusions – absent the full story. I am consistently committed to empowering marginalized voices and believe that many individuals have been heard in the last hours and days that would not otherwise have had a platform to weigh in on this important discussion. Additionally, I have always deferred to the state and national NAACP leadership and offer my sincere gratitude for their unwavering support of my leadership through this unexpected firestorm. [...]
It is with complete allegiance to the cause of racial and social justice and the NAACP that I step aside from the Presidency and pass the baton to my Vice President, Naima Quarles-Burnley. It is my hope that by securing a beautiful office for the organization in the heart of downtown, bringing the local branch into financial compliance, catalyzing committees to do strategic work in the five Game Changer issues, launching community forums, putting the membership on a fast climb, and helping many individuals find the legal, financial and practical support needed to fight race-based discrimination, I have positioned the Spokane NAACP to buttress this transition.
From Cornell William Brooks, NAACP President & CEO:
“The NAACP is not concerned with the racial identity of our leadership but the institutional integrity of our advocacy. Our focus must be on issues not individuals. Ms. Rachel Dolezal has decided to resign to ensure that the Spokane branch remains focused on fighting for civil and human rights. This resignation today comes amidst the real work of the NAACP and the real challenges to our democracy. (more)

More Baltimore Murders … 16 Year Old Arnesha Bowers Found Sexually Assaulted, Strangled and Set Her on Fire (Two Gang Members Arrested for Murder, Adonay Dixon and John Childs)
Do black lives matter when its black on black crime, or is that only used when they are killed by white police?
16 year old Arnesha Bowers, a promising, young, black high school student had her life cut far too short by the acts of two savage black gang members. Arnesha Bowers was found sexually assaulted, bound and strangled to death in her Northeast Baltimore home that had been set on fire in an attempt to cover up the crime. Investigators say that Arnesha Bowers knew her attackers and they used her cell phone records to track them down. This is just one in the long line of murders that have taken place in Baltimore; however, all the MSM and liberal politicians care about is going after police officers so to hide their pathetic and terrible record on crime.
Where is Al Sharpton protesting this heinous murder? Or does this murder not fit his narrative like Freddie Gray?
16-year-old girl was killed before her Northeast Baltimore home was set on fire, police said Monday, the latest child caught up in the surge of violence afflicting the city.
In Curtis Bay, officials canceled classes Monday at an elementary school after police found the body of a man outside. Four children were wounded during the weekend; three by gunfire.
“As a mother, to know that this violence has impacted our young people is stressing,” Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake said Monday night at an anti-crime walk in South Clifton Park.
“We have to be present in every neighborhood around the city. We have to be present as one unified. The police and the community together, and that’s what this is about.”
The City Council held a moment of silence Monday for Arnesha Bowers, a 16-year-old City College high school student whose body firefighters found in a burning house. She was one of six people killed in Baltimore between Saturday and early Monday, bringing the total for June to 13.
According to court documents, Childs and Dixon were hanging out with the teen at a party when they followed her home and plotted a burglary.
Investigators say Childs and Dixon broke into the home through a basement window, but were soon discovered by Bowers.
Childs told police while he ransacked the house for money, Dixon dragged the teen into the basement. Detectives say she was strangled with an electrical cord before the house went up in flames.
Childs and Dixon face multiple charges, including first-degree murder.
John Childs was released on bond from the Baltimore County jail on a burglary charge just five days before the murder.

Kisa Jackson, Mom Who is Black Has a Message in Response to McKinney, TX Uproar … “Parents Need to Take Ownership” … ‘The White Kids Weren’t Running. The Black Kids Were”
WOW, WORDS OF WISDOM FOR PARENTS AND KIDS … PARENTS TAKE OWNERSHIP AND TEACH YOUR CHILDREN TO RESPECT AUTHORITY FIGURES.
Take a good listen to Kisa Jackson in the below VIDEO. Its a point of view and advice from a black mom that you will not hear in the liberal MSM because it does not fit their agenda or narrative that all white cops are racist and out of control and all black kids are angels. The truth is there is bad and good on all sides. Kisa Jackson said in her selfie video, she said parents need to take ownership of what their children are doing. Jackson then went through what happened in the video and the actions of what the kids were doing, posing as threats to the police officers.
A Texas mother’s video response to the national furor over a YouTube clip showing a McKinney police officer grabbing a 15-year-old girl and throwing her to the ground has gone viral, gaining more than 1.5 million views as of Wednesday morning.
Kisa Jackson delivered a passionate response in a clip uploaded to her Facebook page on Monday, defending Cpl. Eric Casebolt’s right to draw his gun and imploring parents to “take ownership” and teach their children to respect authority figures. Casebolt resigned Tuesday amid the ongoing investigation.
“I think ownership needs to be placed where it should be and that’s on the parents,” Jackson said. “Do I think the incident was excessive? Yes — but do I think it was necessary? Yes.”

Rachel Dolezal, NAACP Leader & Civil Rights Activist Outed as White By Her Parents … Accused of Falsifying Race (VIDEO)
HMM, JUST CURIOUS … IF ITS OKAY FOR
BRUCE CAITLYN JENNER TO GO FROM A GUY TO A GIRL BECAUSE HE SHE FEELS LIKE ONE, WHY IS IT NOT OKAY FOR A WOMAN TO GO FROM WHITE TO BLACK?
Wouldn’t that be something if Rachel Dolezal, Washington states most prominent civil rights activist and president of the Spokane NAACP was white? So says Rachel Dolezal’s parents who have outed their daughter as being white. Her biological parents claim she is misrepresenting “major portions of her life,” including being born white. Her parents say that their daughter “is primarily German and Czech and of European descent.” Dolezal dismisses the controversy as little more than an ugly byproduct of family dysfunction.
This gives playing the race card a whole new meaning.
Controversy is swirling around one of the Inland Northwest’s most prominent civil rights activists, with family members of Rachel Dolezal saying the local leader of the NAACP has been falsely portraying herself as black for years.
Dolezal, 37, avoided answering questions directly about her race and ethnicity Thursday, saying, “I feel like I owe my executive committee a conversation” before engaging in a broader discussion with the community about what she described as a “multi-layered” issue.
“That question is not as easy as it seems,” she said after being contacted at Eastern Washington University, where she’s a part-time professor in the Africana Studies Program. “There’s a lot of complexities … and I don’t know that everyone would understand that.”
Dolezal is credited with re-energizing the Spokane chapter of the NAACP. She also serves as chairwoman of the city’s Office of Police Ombudsman Commission, where she identified herself as white, black and American Indian in her application for the volunteer appointment, and previously was education director for the Human Rights Education Institute in Coeur d’Alene.
In recent days, questions have arisen about her background and her numerous complaints to police of harassment. Members of her family are challenging her very identity, saying she has misrepresented major portions of her life.
Interesting. Of course there are some legal issues of knowingly falsifying your race on job applications, especially if they are government ones. However, the real test will come if it is determined to be true that she is white and not bi-racial as Rachel Dolezal claims. Will the NAACP do the racist and bigoted thing and fire her from being president of their Spokane, WA chapter? Does one have to be black to be an NAACP president? Wouldn’t that be racist and against federal laws of job discrimination? James Wilburn, former president of the Spokane NAACP chapter said that Dolezal’s race was not what had qualified her for the position in the organization. Really, we shall see.
Her parents, Ruthanne and Larry, live in a rural home in Troy, Montana. Her father described a young Dolezal as blonde, blue-eyed and freckled-face.
“No way to get around it,” he said. The couple say their daughter is pretending to be someone she’s not.
“Rachel has wanted to be somebody she’s not. She’s chosen not to just be herself but to represent herself as an African-American woman or a biracial person,” Ruthanne said.
A serious question has to be asked … if Bruce Jenner can become Caitlyn Jenner and celebrated as some cause celeb because he feels like he is really a woman, why can’t Rachel Dolezal make the claim she is a black woman trapped in a white woman’s body? Seriously, what’s the difference? If a man can think he is a woman because he feels so, why can’t a white woman be a black one, or vice-versa? Sorry, but the LGBT opened Pandora’s Box.
