    This is out of control now.

    The public battle over the Confederate flag may have driven "The Dukes of Hazzard" and the General Lee off the road.
    TV Land has yanked reruns of the series from its schedule. It had been airing twice a day. The network has declined to comment on why the show was pulled.
    Warner Bros., which owns "The Dukes of Hazzard," halted production last week on toy replicas of the General Lee, the Dukes' orange Dodge Charger. The Confederate flag is emblazoned on its roof.
    "The Dukes of Hazzard" originally aired on CBS from 1979-1985 and followed the adventures of cousins Bo (John Schneider) and Luke (Tom Wopat) who raced around rural Georgia in their 1969 Charger.
    Two weeks ago, actor Ben Jones, who played Cooter on the TV series, defended use of the Confederate flag on the General Lee.
    "That flag on top of the General Lee made a statement that the values of the rural South were the values of courage and family and good times. Our beloved symbol is now being attacked in a wave of political correctness that is unprecedented in our nation of free speech and free expression," he posted on Facebook.
    Jones, a former two-term Democratic congressman, vowed that Confederate items will never be removed from the Cooter's Place stores and museums he owns and operates.
    Some retailers have stopped selling Confederate flag merchandise in the wake of the race-related shooting of nine members of an African-American church in Charleston, South Carolina.
    The Confederate flag flap is not the first time TV Land has altered its schedule because of outside forces.
    Last fall, TV Land pulled reruns of "The Cosby Show" after multiple women have come forward with accusations that Bill Cosby sexually assaulted them decades ago.

    One of the things I never understood is why Bo and Luke wore the same clothes everyday. They never changed their outfit. They had money to trick out the General Lee and I'm sure Uncle Jesse could have thrown them a few bucks from his Moonshine sales. Has this ever been explained.

    I got a 1979 International Scout for my 16th birthday in the late 90's. I installed a dixie horn in it and I had a confederate flag tacked up on the inside of the roof. I was more open about my racism back then.
