As Western Journal reported last week, pro golfer and two-time Masters champion Bubba Watson has vowed to remove the image of the Confederate flag from the classic General Lee car he bought after the TV show The Dukes of Hazzard ceased production. Watson has said he’ll replace the Confederate flag atop the iconic Dodge Charger with an American flag — a move that drew a fair amount of criticism on social media from folks who believe the golfer caved to the PC purge some argue is now in full force.
The cable network TV Land has also shown its PC colors by yanking reruns of The Dukes of Hazzard from its programming lineup — not citing any offensive content of the show in terms of racist characters or themes, just the controversy over the flag that adorned the bright orange car in which the Duke boys drove around fictional Hazzard County.
Now, Christian actor and outspoken Hollywood conservative Kevin Sorbo has jumped into the controversy over the Confederate flag and the disappearance of the Dukes from television. An actor and director best known for his title role in TV’s Hercules: The Legendary Journeys, in addition to the recent movie God’s Not Dead, Sorbo cut loose with an epic rant on his Facebook page in which he slammed the “PC crowd” as “nuts,” “insane,” and “crazy” for pulling The Dukes of Hazzard.

Sorbo wondered what’s next to be purged — Hogan’s Heros, The Jeffersons, All in the Family?
Sorbo’s anger at the media’s political correctness obviously struck a chord and was generally well-received, as evidenced by what commenters had to say about his emotion-packed rant. Below, you can see what the actor had to say, as well as take a look at a few of the responses that raise compelling points about who was really behind the effort to maintain the practice of slavery.
