“Reaction on social media to his change of heart has been mixed. One commenter asks Watson: “why didn’t you do it the first day you bought it if you believe that so much?,” to which another replies, “He doesn’t. He’s caving in to the liberal media.” An exasperated third commenter notes, “dude – accept the progress.” Another person who may not be happy with Watson’s decision: Schneider, who blasted TV Land for pulling theDOH episodes in a YouTube post on Wednesday. (No more Confederate flags atNASCAR races, either.)“
And of course, a person has to blame it on liberals. But it’s not liberal pressure. It’s not political correctness. It’s people waking up to the reality of what that symbol means, and choosing to move away from that and into progress. This isn’t even liberals! Republicans in South Carolina are leading it!
But keep blaming liberals. I’m fine with that. We are the ones who kept telling the truth about that flag after all. You’re welcome.
