    You may or may not be aware that HBO Max has relaunched Warner Brothers classic Looney Tunes Cartoons. But in the name of "political correctness" our beloved Elmer Fudd has been stripped of his firearm. Political correctness my ass!
    If they truly wanted to be politically correct what they could do is introduce a new character who is a vegan. The two of them would have calm and rational discussions about their opinions on hunting and/or consuming animals. Elmer Fudd could explain all the benefits hunting has for conservation and proper wildlife Management, and how he appreciates organic meat free of artificial hormones, antibiotics, etc. The viewer could actually be educated on several facts regarding the benefits of hunting that many people are unaware of. The vegan could say how emotionally, he cannot accept the idea of an animal being killed for consumption or human gain/profit. They could both share their sides and their opinions without being angry or hostile to each other and could just agree to disagree. The two of them could be amazing friends who both love, enjoy, and appreciate nature, but have a difference of opinion where hunting and animal consumption are concerned. To me, that's far more politically correct as it shows both sides and also a peaceful resolution......... People don't have to agree with each other in order to get along. Just respect each other's thoughts and feelings, and coexist. The idea that Elmer no longer has a firearm, but is using a scythe to try to "hunt" Bugs Bunny I feel depicts hunters as primitive and barbaric with a lust for murder and mayhem! Surely a scythe would not dispatch game in a quick and humane manner compared to the shotgun he was using. This just depicts hunters in a vile and barbaric image. I don't think that is politically correct at all!
    Apparently this decision was made due to the mass shootings that have taken place in the US. Yet explosive devices are depicted every bit as much, if not more, than in the original cartoon.
    Apparently nearly 40,000 bombings in the United States in a 20 year period doesn't mean much. Forget about the Unabomber, the Time Square Bombing, the Boston Marathon Bombings, the Oklahoma City Bombing, the World Trade Center Bombing, the Underwear Bomber, Centennial Olympic Park, the list goes on. But who cares about explosives? As long as Elmer Fudd is disarmed our children are safe to now watch these cartoons, right?
    What about vehicular manslaughter? Next will we have to take the CARs out of CARtoons?
    Enough is enough. And enough was A LOOOOOONNNNNNGGG time ago!!

    Typical leftist garbage . I used to watch Looney Tunes ... Back when I used to be a child . My favorite character used to be Yosemite Sam . Elmer Fudd’s shot gun and Yosemite Sam’s brace of six shooters ... Were almost as iconic as the characters , themselves .

    Some times , I really wish that I could take every single leftist on God’s Green Earth ... And air drop them in to North Korea . They are polluting this world ... Beyond imagination .

    I like that idea Major, especially with one of those new fangled lead parachutes! But it would take a lot of planes over the DZ, the sky would be black with C-130’s.

    Much easier to frog march them all (well the rest of them) into California. We could hope the combined added weight would cause the San Andreas fault to shear and dump the whole lot into the Pacific... just a thought...

    Gentlemen - the communists have been undermining the US society for decades and no one has begun to notice until recently. This is one more brain-washing effort to destroy the US culture - like taking down statues, declaring there are _____ (fill in the blank) number of sexes, that women can be SEALs and SF Soldiers, etc., etc., etc..

    I resist where I can - I speak of the communist Chinese Flu - not the COVID garbage - call it like it is. When I venture out I usually wear my T-shirts that have a minuteman kneeling with an AR in front of the US flag, or my shirt with "Democrat", "Republican", and an AR as the ballot choices, with the AR selected as my vote.

    We are losing the war right now for the most free nation on the planet. Things will come to a head between now and NOV - if the election is stolen with mail in- voter fraud and media censorship, next will come dictates that certain people will not obey/openly resist. If the sitting president is re-elected, the communists will go off the deep end - what we has seen the last 10 days or so are just training missions/getting warmed up.

    Gird your loins, gentlemen - things are going to get interesting!

    What PC BS! My wife is an avid Looney Tunes fan. She has about thirty cells. She thinks this is BS. Does Elmer ever shoot Bugs? NO!
    Talk about LOONEY. Every hunter / shooter in America should contact HBO.

    This was probably something decided by the executives at HBO/Warner Brothers. From what I've seen, the animators themselves have nothing but respect for the old Chuck Jones shorts. And tbh, I'm not sure if this is something they'll stick with or if it's just to generate publicity. Us ranting and raving about it is proof that they're getting the publicity they want. This was PR bait and we took it.

    HBO streaming has removed "Gone With the Wind" from their library as well.

    I think we're also forgetting that entertainment corporations give negative damns about any "progressive agenda." One of the most profound examples of this is June, which many LBGT+ communties label as "Pride Month." The tl;dr of it is that corporations make the most superficial of token gestures towards this cause, coming across as out of touch and predatory at the best of times.

    For example, from the video game studio Bethesda.

    Despicable, disgusting, socialist anti American garbage. Considering the source, it's what you expect.
