HBO cancels Gone With the Wind actress Hattie McDaniel

HBO Max has removed Gone With The Wind after the woke progressives cried raaaaaaaaaaacist.

In a statement, the AT&T-owned WarnerMedia, which owns HBO Max, called “Gone With the Wind” “a product of its time” that depicts racial prejudices.

“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,” said an HBO Max spokesman in a statement.

Apparently some head honcho can proclaim that his feeeeeeeeeeelings are the Golden Rule for what is irresponsible.

“A product of its time” could also be called HISTORY.

You know what else is a part of HISTORY? Hattie McDaniel. From Wikipedia:

“Hattie McDaniel (June 10, 1893 – October 26, 1952) was an American actress, singer-songwriter, and comedian. She is best known for her role as “Mammy” in Gone with the Wind (1939), for which she won the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress, becoming the first African American to win an Oscar.

In addition to acting in many films, McDaniel recorded 16 blues sides between 1926–1929 (10 were issued), was a radio performer and television star; she was the first black woman to sing on radio in the United States.”

From Hattie’s acceptance speech:

I sincerely hope I shall always be a credit to my race and to the motion picture industry. My heart is too full to tell you just how I feel. And may I say thank you, and God Bless You.”

Many of us will not let Hattie’s wish be denied. Last night, Gone With the Wind shot to number one on Amazon and sold out.

I for one will not cancel this “product of its time” nor Hattie McDaniel. Yes, we were one of the many folk who helped GWTW to sell out. Can’t wait to watch it again!

Take a break from politics…enjoy some classic movie scenes!

Most of what Hollyweird produces today is crap with self-righteous actors who preach to us about gun control, abortion, climate change and, of course, TRUMP!!!!!!

I love movies from back in the day. That’s because political correctness didn’t stiffen scripts and men were real men. Thought I’d share some clips with you of some of my favorites:

Gone with the Wind: The drama, costumes and history, oh my! And of course, Clark Gable.

An Affair to Remember: The wonderful fashions worn by Deborah Kerr! And of course, Cary Grant.

Dirty Harry movies: The action! And of course, Clint Eastwood.

The Thomas Crown Affair: The heist and cat-and-mouse game between Thomas and Vicki! And of course, Steve McQueen.

Bullitt: That car chase! And again, Steve McQueen.

Jaws: A classic that made everyone afraid to go in the water! And of course, Roy Scheider.

Ocean’s 11: The best part of this movie is the heist! And of course, the Rat Pack.

Feel free to post vids of your favorite movies in the comments below!
