Hahahahaha ....

As the tide continues to turn against Confederate flags, two-time Masters champion Bubba Watson said Thursday that he too would remove the flag from one of its most visible cultural likenesses.

On his verified Twitter account, Watson said:

The golf pro bought the 1969 Dodge Charger dubbed General Lee, which was used in the first "The Dukes of Hazzard" episode, in 2012. The news comes days after TV Land announced they'd discontinue reruns of the show, which ran from 1979 to 1985, given how prominently the show foists the Confederate flag as an icon of the South. Major retailers Amazon and Walmart have also said they'd stop selling products with the flag.

The backlash started in the wake of the Charleston church shooting, when suspect Dylann Roof allegedly gunned down nine African-American parishioners. Roof's fondness for white supremacist emblems has been well documented.

Guess the central government should be happy the south finally admitted it lost.

Before this latest flap I seriously doubt you ever spent a second thinking about the C flag.

I bet the "new improved" General Lee won't be making an appearance at the Bama Bike Fest in the fall.

 (and if it does it'll wake up Saturday morning with a new Confederate flag paint job on top)
