Then the Cultural Stalinists came for movies

The erasing of American heritage/history/culture/arts keeps moving along

Anything filmed earlier than last week probably violates some aspect of ever-evolving political correctness. Christian Toto notes that the movie purge is already getting started:

Two years ago, a Memphis theater nixed a screening of the 1939 classic “Gone with the Wind” because of its “insensitive” content.

Disney’s Oscar-winning “Song of the South” won’t be seen on the company’s forthcoming streaming platform. The 1946 film’s antiquated, and some say racist, portrayal of black life turned the movie into cultural poison. It’s never made it to home video, and that’s unlikely to change in the near future.

Once an actor has been unpersoned, anything he appeared in may be subject to erasure. For example, Bounce TV has pulled reruns of The Cosby Show, HBO disappeared all programming including Louis C.K., and Amazon declined to release Woody Allen’s A Rainy Day in New York due to sexual shenanigans, which constitute political crimes in the #MeToo era.

What is next? Well, everyting!
