The Death Of The General Lee

The Verge

The Confederate flag may or may not be removed from government buildings in South Carolina, but the relic is definitely being removed from at least one southern icon. Warner Bros. today announced that it was halting production of toys and replicas of the General Lee, the car from the Dukes of Hazzard, which famously bore the flag on its roof. The company follows in the footsteps of retailers Amazon, Sears, eBay, and Walmart, all of whom elected to ban sales of the Confederate flag and its image this week after the racially motivated murders in Charleston on Sunday.

Will they ban the paint I'll use to make my own?

2 time Masters champ Bubba Watson bought one of the original Gen. Lee's. Don't know if the SJWs are hounding him to destroy a classic car for their agenda or not.
SInce they probably don't know who he is, he may be safe.
