HBO could be making their single biggest mistake by cancelling this big movie that will make you furious

24

Streaming services have declared an outright war against free speech removing anything they view as “triggering” or may upset anyone on the Left.

But this time, HBO could be making a financially devastating mistake.

HBO is cancelling this classic American film for reasons that will make you want to cancel your subscription immediately.

Netflix, HBO, Hulu, Amazon, and Disney+ have all bent over backwards to appease the radical Left.

Social justice warriors and triggered college students are dictating the rules of what can and cannot be said in movies, TV shows, books, and all other forms of entertainment.

And many companies are too afraid to stand up to them.

Not to mention the celebrities and producers behind most of the entertainment are all hardcore social justice warriors.

But things just took a turn for the worse and streaming services are starting to censor classic American films.

HBO has decided to blacklist Gone with the Wind the most financially successful movie in American history.

The movie has been deemed inappropriate by the Left due to old racial content that was originally included in the historical movie.

The irony is that Gone with the Wind features the first African American to ever win an Oscar, Hattie McDaniel.

Instead of promoting the historical significance of the film and what it means to African American history within the entertainment industry’s history, HBO has decided to bend to the will of the Left and succumb to “Cancel Culture.”

HBO did tell subscribers that it was planning on re-releasing the film after an edited version is completed that censors every possible line of dialogue that could be perceived as offensive.

The Left doesn’t seem to understand they are shooting themselves in the foot with the efforts to erase all evidence of racism in American history.

Learning from our history requires studying it.

Shielding everyone’s eyes from racism is not a solution to eliminate the problem.

What do you think?

Is it wrong for HBO to censor Gone with the Wind?

  2. Phk HBO. I don’t mind AT ALL cancelling HBO. Movies should not be junked because a few Hollyweird pusstards don’t want to remember our country’s history. You can’t get rid of it, history will exist forever. Most countries of the world had slaves and prisoners at one point. What about the Third Reich, they killed 3 million Jews. I’m not saying all that was okay, but only fools try to forget it happened.

  3. If they lose enough money -the mood will change. What we need is more competition from companies that aren’t leftist buttkissers. Hopefully with what the banning and censoring we are seeing on the facebook, twitter and other sites that are biased another form of from a new company will provide competition. Reminds me of the German Third Reich and the Japanese tokyo Roses biased broadcasts. You only heard what they wanted people to hear and not what was truly going on.

  4. I have never in my entire life SEEN SO MANY LEFT WING LUNATICS IN THIS NATION. I SUSPECT THAT THE MOST OF OUR NATION MUST HAVE MARRIED FIRST COUSINS OR THEIR SIBLINGS TO HAVE HATCHED THIS MANY IDIOTS

  5. Nothing will happen to HBO. White Christians won’t cancel. We are used to turning the other cheek.

  6. This is so wrong, I am thinking of canceling my Hulu service. These are classic moves, they have no right to pull them!!!

  7. Single biggest mistake only if enough subscribers cancel to make the pain felt where it counts: their bottom line.

  8. When we eliminate or rewrite history, we are doing ourselves a disservice. We can’t change the past. It is written in stone. We need to look and see how far we have come and then keep growing and changing in the future. How can we grow when there’s no basis from which to start?

  9. Black men think the point of Slavery was emasculation. That’s why they associate it with White Supremacy because according to them White people were trying to determine who should reproduce. So they equate White Supremacy with wanton and unchecked lust for power

  10. It is censorship! Plain and simple. They do not hesitate to let the obscene language roll, nor sex scenes involving any combination of individuals as well as single sex, and they show violence in ways I have never seen before nor most people ever thought about. But a movie where the first Black person won an Academy Award in a vote by the members of the Academy which left no doubt she won 70 years ago! is not acceptable. Rather than being something to turn their back on, they should embrace it. It is a story about the Civil War covering a period of time prior to it and after it. It is a love story which starred Hollywood elite. One matter of note is there is one remaining star still alive…Olivia de Havilland is 100+ years old living in Paris, I believe. Her character and that of Hattie McDaniel were, IMO, the two strongest characters in the story/movie. McDaniel’s character of Mammy (that was her name, not her job) held the house together and was the only person who knew and still loved Scarlett. Even Rhett Butler wanted Mammy’s respect, it was important to him. This is NOT a movie to put up high on a shelf to be forgotten. It is HBO’s time put it in context and show it nonstop during these horrible days we are currently living through. If not, shame on them.

  11. The more we bend to the liberal demands the more demands they continue to make. They will never ever be satisfied it’s all about their power not truth or justice only power. As far as Hollywood liberals are concerned when it comes to it they are the least important people in our society They can’t build anything, they can’t fix anything and have proved they know nothing.

  12. HBO is Hot Bags of Obtuse. Stupid is the kindest thing I can say. Millions will cancel their HBO and not shed a tear. Useless pieces of dog meat.

  13. The democrats want to take away all of our history (and our unborn children, who would be a part of that history). IF “THEY” TAKE OUR HISTORY FROM US, WHETHER IT’S OUR UNBORN CHILDREN, CONFEDERATE STATUES, MOVIES THAT DEPICTED PAST PROBLEMS, THE MILITARY, POLICE, AND OUR VERY “CONSTITUTION”, THEY WOULD BE ALSO BE REMOVING THE REMINDERS OF OUR ANCESTORS, WHO STRUGGLED, SUFFERED, FOUGHT AND DIED TO BUILD OUR NATION. MUCH OF OUR HISTORY ISN’T GOOD. THERE WERE EVIL MEN THEN, AND THEY ARE HERE TODAY. THERE WILL ALWAYS BE A BATTLE BETWEEN GOOD AND EVIL. TO REMOVE ANY OF OUR HISTORY, IS TO REMOVE THE GOODNESS OF ALL WHO SUFFERED AND DIED FOR ALL OF OUR FREEDOMS. I THINK OF SLAVERY, PERSECUTION OF CHRISTIANS AND THE HOLOCAUST. IF WE REMOVE THE HORRIFIC REMINDERS OF THE TOTAL EVIL ALL OF THESE SUFFERED IN THE PAST, WHAT ARE WE LEAVING FOR FUTURE GENERATIONS TO LEARN FROM THE PAST? WE WOULD ALSO ERASE THE HISTORY OF ALL THOSE WHO SURVIVED, LIVED & CONTRIBUTED TO THE WORLD, AND THEIR CRITICAL REMINDERS THAT IF WE DON’T LEARN FROM OUR PAST MISTAKES, AND ACCEPT ALL PEOPLE, AND HONOR THEM FOR THE STRUGGLES THEY OVERCAME AND CONTRIBUTIONS THEY’VE MADE, THE EVIL OF THE PAST WILL OCCUR AGAIN! WE NEED THE GOOD HISTORICAL REMINDERS, AND AS HARD AS THEY ARE TO ACCEPT, WE NEED THE BAD, TO REMIND AND TEACH US TO LEARN FROM OUR PAST MISTAKES, SO WE DON’T REPEAT THEM AGAIN IN THE FUTURE!!! I WOULD USE “GONE WITH THE WIND” TO TEACH GENERATIONS OF BOTH WHITE AND BLACK CHILDREN OF THEIR HISTORY, BOTH GOOD AND BAD. TODAY YA’ GOTTA’ SHOW THE BAD IN ORDER TO UNDERSTAND THE GOOD, AND CONTRIBUTIONS THAT THEY & THEIR FAMILIES HAVE GIVEN. THERE’S SO MUCH GOOD YOU CAN GIVE OUR FUTURE LEADERS IF THEY UNDERSTAND PAST GENERATIONS, THE GOOD & BAD, AND THEIR UNIMAGINABLE STRUGGLES. WE CAN LEARN FROM STATUES, MOVIES, SLAVERY, HOLOCAUST AND RELIGIOUS PERSECUTIONS. WHY NOT USE ALL OUR HISTORY TO KEEP FROM MAKING FUTURE MISTAKES? NO! TO TAKING OUR MOVIES AND HISTORY AWAY!

  14. These democrat activist children are certainly in the minority but they make a lot of noise, and get in your face, and cause a lot of disruption. Instead of putting them in their place, we cave in to them, and pander to them, because we are lazy, and we are cowards. They are like spoiled brats that have never been disciplined by their parents.

  15. History is to be studied and learned from, it’s the warning signs, a “Danger” sign post up ahead, warning we have seen this before, remember what happened last time, avoid doing this, so it doesn’t happen again, a warning sign says, I passed though here and its dangerous, be careful unstable or hole in floor, ect. With out a guide, singn post or warning sign many generations will fall..

  16. I just called my cable provider and told them to cancel HBO for me. Just a few dollars a month but I guess every little will help!

  17. We make a huge deal when saying someone is a “teacher”. What have they been teaching? Seriously, these young people today do NOT know history, do not know that the founders of this country came over here from Ireland, Poland, Italy, etc. and were not allowed to speak their own language, but were forced to speak English, how to pronounce words properly, how to do simple math, cannot read, cannot write cursive, understand what the word NO means and are completely undisciplined. To make matters worse their parents and others cater to their every whim! A perfect example of how NOT to be a parent is the Mayor of Chicago. She is a lawyer and recently elected mayor who happens to be African American and proudly gay. She proudly went on TV when the virus was being talked about and said to God and everyone that her message to the President of the United States is “… first F than U”. Then she laughed! After that she told an Alderman who went to her for help that he was “100% full of Sh_t. This is a woman who has a young “daughter”. What is that child learning at home with someone like this to lead her in life. People like this are the PROBLEM! They are so bitter and filled with hatred that they let their sickness spill over into those young people who do not know any better and become like her. Guess having been a lawyer in one of Chicago’s best law firms and now Mayor of Chicago, with people of all races and backgrounds, is not good enough for her. What more can someone ask for? How pathetic! And, what a loss for all of us in Chicago who had to deal with the riots and fires as she abuses her Police Officers by NOT backing them.

  18. Projected political correctness and racism is bullying. The ignorant perpetrators who censor the magnificent “Gone With The Wind” film are immature wannabes afflicted with the “Disease To Please.” No independent thought and no respect for anyone different. Gestapo Nazism. We ALL matter: brown, yellow, red, white, black.

  19. GWTW has been recognized as racist for many years. It may have been acceptable when it was made, but this is a different time and societal norms recognize bigotry as unacceptable in an educated society. Making the decision to discontinue openly racist movies puts these companies on the right side of history and will in there long run protect their profitability.
