The most iconic redneck vehicle on the planet isn't allowed to be at the most iconic redneck event. That's ironic.

I wonder what the following Venn diagram looks like:

1. People who insist that displaying the confederate flag is a celebration of their heritage; and,
2. People who insist that immigrants must assimilate into American culture and leave their own heritage behind.

I'm guessing it's something like this: O

jehovahs witness protection: Who let idiot political correct libs in to NASCAR?


It's not that.

The idiots running NASCAR hate the fact that their brand of sports entertainment is rooted in the deep south's moonshiners. They do not like the fact that their traditional fanbase is confederate flag flying, beer drinking good old boys who want to see cars going fast.

The Dukes of Hazzard and the General Lee are part of that southern mentality. So, naturally, NASCAR can't have something like that at one of their sports entertainment events. It might offend the new fans they cater to, the ones who like manufactured excitement and wimpy little drivers that don't have much talent, but sure are purty enough to do commercials and draw in the soccer mom crowd.

TL;DR:

It ain't about political correctness, it's about demographics and money.

Actually, it's not really treason aimed at us. It's the General farking Lee. It's an iconic piece of television history. Changing the paint job is retarded. Bad Nascar. BAD! NO COOKIE!
 
2012-02-17 10:09:04 PM  
Phoenix probably isn't the best place for the General Lee to run. Since the Dukes of Hazzard is set in Georgia, they need have the General Lee be the pace car in Atlanta.
 
2012-02-17 10:27:17 PM  
I tell you what. If you won't complain about a car called the General Sherman to be the pace car up north, then I won't complain about the General Lee to be the pace car down south.

They'd put a stop to that after the General Sherman drives down pit row and destroys every crew and piece of equipment in its path.

Can you show me where States aren't allowed to leave the Union? Because the Constitution doesn't prohibit it in the slightest. The 10th Amendment, OTOH, does say a little bit about the rights of States.

You can argue whether they should have or shouldn't have (I come down on the latter), but to say they committed treason is to show your profound ignorance.

Worked at a Fortune 500 company and a single person went to HR and complained about the Confederate Flags being displayed on the cars in the parking lot, front licence plate, window stickers, flag in the truck rear window.
They stated that it intimidated them and made them physically ill.
Needless to say this was taken very seriously and ALL vehicles were inspected upon entry, either take the offensive display off, or don't come to work.

Just look at how they essentially over-hyped poor Bill Lester out of the sport, and the "drive for diversity," program they've been throwing money at for years. Hell, they even posthumously gave Wendell Scott his trophy. NASCAR has been desperate to reach the black demographic for over a decade now. Unfortunately, the closest they've gotten has been a fashion trend of selling sponsor jackets, and that had nothing to do with their efforts.

Correct me if I'm wrong but according to this there are several precedents of prohibition of secession, most notably the Declaration of Independence which united colonies into a union of states.

My schadenfreude lobe lights up like a christmas tree every time the good ol boys get thrown under the bus by people or institutions they thought had their back. This is even better than Clint Eastwoods 'fark you, republicans' commercial.

I was going to say something about NASCAR just trying to expand their demographic, but you've forced me utter a much more serious though.

A blonde Daisy Duke is utter blasphemy. Now Jessica Simpson had the legs to pull off the role, but whoever told her not to dye her hair should burn in hellfire. Although I would pardon him if he'd just name whoever got the bright idea of Johnny Knoxville wanting to have sex with his car to take his place.
