[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Bubba Watson is a two-time Masters champion who played his collegiate golf in the south, Alabama and Georgia to be exact. In 2012, the same year of his first Masters win, he won The General Lee, the iconic 1969 Dodge Charger from the hit TV show The Dukes of Hazzard, in an auction. He not only spent $110,000 to buy this piece of television history, he also had the car autographed by John Schneider, who played Bo Duke on the show which ran from 1979 through 1985. And now, Bubba Watson is caving to the PC police who seek to destroy the history of the South by announcing that he is going to paint over the iconic General Lee’s Confederate flag.[/vc_column_text][banner300 banner=”5517620b381df”][vc_column_text]Watson made the announcement on Twitter.
All men ARE created equal, I believe that so I will be painting the American flag over the roof of the General Lee #USA

This isn’t just any old car. This isn’t a replica. This is THE General Lee from the actual show, autographed by one of the show’s stars. But, since it has become hip to hate on the Confederate flag, after the inanimate object was blamed for the decision of a deranged racist white man’s decision to kill nine black Christians at a church in South Carolina, many have fallen in line with the quest to wipe any hint of the Confederacy from American history. Fans of Bubba were quick to denounce his decision to alter this iconic piece of history.

@bubbawatson keep it I loved the show, and it was not from a place of hatred. Don’t cowtow to all this political correctness

[/vc_column_text][banner300 banner=”553157113d3ff”][vc_column_text]If you watched The Dukes of Hazzard, as I did as an avid viewer, you would know that there was absolutely nothing racist about it. But, the PC and thought police have determined that the Confederate flag, and anything having to do with the history of the Confederacy in this country must go.

And Bubba Watson is quick to comply, caving in and changing an iconic car that he bought because of its iconic history because it is the en vogue thing to do now.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
