On Tuesday, HBO Max temporarily removed the 1939 film “Gone With the Wind” from its library in the wake of protests over the death of George Floyd.
“’Gone With The Wind’ is a product of its time and depicts some of the ethnic and racial prejudices that have, unfortunately, been commonplace in American society. These racist depictions were wrong then and are wrong today, and we felt that to keep this title up without an explanation and a denouncement of those depictions would be irresponsible,” an HBO Max spokesperson told Variety.

And so it begins.  Under the demands of a Approved Race Guidelines, companies shall be forced to withdraw anything deemed racially offensive from its rotation and  show only products that are deemed appropriate by the Reich… I mean, the Leftist Political Puritans.

Now, this is not new. For all its historical “wokeness” Hollywood has bent to external forces to use a racial and/or religious filters if they feel their income would be compromised.

Beginning with wholesale changes made to Universal’s 1930 release All Quiet on the Western Front, Hollywood regularly ran scripts and finished movies by German officials for approval. When they objected to scenes or dialogue they thought made Germany look bad, criticized the Nazis or dwelled on the mistreatment of Jews, the studios would accommodate them — and make cuts in the American versions as well as those shown elsewhere in the world.

We are headed down a very dangerous path, or should I say a very dangerous set of railroad tracks?

  1. More revisionist claptrap from “our betters” on the leftard coast. RME

    Never seen this flick, heard lots about it but didn’t caught my interest. Now I’m gonna get it & watch it before Hollystupid’ MinTru gets a hold of all unapproved copies to add to their book-burning pyre. Same with any others their MinTru considers objectionable. 😛

  2. When people ask why own a hard copy these things are what immediately come to mind. You can remove or change my hard copy without doing it physically.

    For the record I haven’t even seen gone with the wind let alone own it but it should make any person say what’s next, blazing saddles?

  3. “Every record has been destroyed or falsified, every book rewritten, every picture has been repainted, every statue and street building has been renamed, every date has been altered. And the process is continuing day by day and minute by minute. History has stopped. Nothing exists except an endless present in which the Party is always right.” – George Orwell

  4. So they also want to memory hole the fact that Hattie McDaniel was the first black woman to win an Oscar. After all if we can’t see GWTW how can we appreciate her performance.

    1. Wokeness doesn’t mind to do harm to black people. They are just eggs to be made into omelets, in the view of the radicals.

Only one rule: Don't be a dick.
