Hollywood needs more individuals like the Dukes of Hazzard’s John Schneider aka Bo Duke.
The once blonde-heartthrob of the South is not taking it from the politically correct crowd who have since the Charleston, South Carolina AME church shooting gone after anything and anyone who was affiliated with the Confederate Flag.
A few days ago, TV Land pulled all reruns of the ‘Dukes of Hazzard,’ which was famous among Gen. X-ers who grew in the 1970’s and 1980’s.
The show was pulled because a Confederate Flag graced the famous car that characters Bo Duke, Luke Duke and Daisy Duke drove around the South as rebellious lawbreaking teenagers.
Schneider blasted the politically correct nature of Hollywood, saying “The Dukes of Hazzard was and is no more a show seated in racism than Breaking Bad was a show seated in reality,” to the Hollywood Reporter.
But, Schneider hit hard, asking the Left this particular question that we’re sure no one in Hollywood will be able to answer: “Are people who grew up watching the show now suddenly racists?” John Schneider asks.
Here’s what else he said about the overt and absurd political correctness:
“I am saddened that one angry and misguided individual can cause one of the most beloved television shows in the history of the medium to suddenly be seen in this light,” Schneider said Wednesday. “Are people who grew up watching the show now suddenly racists? Will they have to go through a detox and a 12-step program to kick their Dukes habit? ‘Hi… My name is John. I’m a Dukesoholic.’”
Earlier Wednesday, Schneider tweeted a photo of Roof burning a U.S. flag while wearing a Gold’s Gym shirt. “I am grossly offended by flag burning. But … is the Gold’s Gym logo to be considered a symbol of racism as well now?” he wrote.
“I’m kidding, of course, but has it really come to this?” he said in an interview with THR. “Come on, TV Land, can’t we all just watch TV?”
Currently, Schneider is filming a feature film here in the state at the John Schneider Studios in Holden, La.
