It remains to be seen whether South Carolina governor Nikki Haley sparked a national dialog about racial equality or just a headlong lemming-dash about a flag. But it’s not looking good.

Major retailers like Amazon, Ebay, and Walmart have removed confederate battle flags from their listings. Yet they still continue to allow the sale of items featuring Nazi emblems and swastikas. Apple has just removed all Civil War games from its app store.

The idiocy doesn’t stop there.

Warner Brothers has now announced that it has halted production of toys and replicas of the iconic “Dukes of Hazzard” car known as the General Lee, which famously bore the flag on its roof.

Political Correctness is so mindless. Try as you might, you can’t unring a bell. You can only pretend, but that’s not honest.

The South Carolina legislature could now conceivably decide to keep the flag flying, just to restore sanity or balance to the national discourse.
