Petition to Reinstate “The Dukes of Hazzard” on ‘TV Land’
Are you a fan of “The Dukes of Hazzard?”
As you might know the re-runs of the show were recently cancelled on ‘TV Land’ and fans of the show are encouraging other fans to sigh an on-line petition to bring it back.
The petition is available at Change.org and has already nearly reached the 50,000 names Change.org says is needed to submit to the network.
Here’s what the petition says in part:
“For well over 30 years, the Confederate flag has adorned the roof of the General Lee from “The Dukes of Hazzard” tv show. “The Dukes of Hazzard” was a show about values, morals and principles – not about racism and hate!!! Fans of the show know what the show is all, about and what the Confederate flag really stands for: southern pride and values – not racism or hate!!”
The petition goes on to say, “There were multiple episodes where they helped people of colors other then “white”, and it even had a black sheriff that appeared often, who was respected and feared more then the sheriff of Hazzard… Bring back this TV show that had family values, a family that prayed before dinner, went to church on Sunday, and that was always willing to help ANYONE in need… even their enemy, when the need arose… and their trusty indestructible car that was almost always there to help them help others, when needed… the General Lee”
