This Is Probably a Hate Crime

Posted on | April 9, 2012 | 9 Comments

WARNING: We apologize to readers for the disturbing neo-Confederate imagery in this shocking eight-minute video that shows every jump by the “General Lee” during the first six seasons of The Dukes of Hazzard:


“How many times should they jump the General Lee in an episode? The correct answer is ‘more.’ “

    If that show were to start as a new show next season there’d be calls for a congressional investigation and Holder’s civil rights division and the SPLC would be suing over the alarming rise in the promotion of “southern heritage”.

     Despite be almost being a card carrying damn Yankee (SUCWV), this is great.  Except for the last song.

    Much is explained about the Duke Brothers if one assumes both suffer from post-concussion syndrome.

    That car had more frame-straightening appointments than Client Number Nine.

    I believe I once read that they went through something like 300 General Lees.  But, you can have the General Lee.  I’ll take Daisy!

     Well, they DID make a movie “remake” of the show in 2005.  Jessica Simpson played Daisy.  She ain’t the sharpest tool in the box, but she definitely has certain talents…

    Still a whole heap of fun to watch. Some of those impacts are so severe that they had to be done with models, no vehicle could land at those angles without auguring in.
    But who cares how it was made – this is the rebel yell, V8 edition!

    I’m glad to hear from other connoisseurs of fine television.  We loved Dukes of Hazard back in the day.

    I wonder if the General Lee is still banned from NASCAR after Bubba Watson won the Masters.
