Uncle Remus, Bre'r Bear and Bre'r Fox spoke like many of my relatives. It didn't offend me, it endeared them to me. White liberals try to protect us from offenses that should not exist and, in this instance, does not exist. Pompous asses all!

I saw this movie when I was about five, when it first came out. It was magic and wonder, both scary and funny. I loved bre'r Rabbit and Uncle Remus. I also have used the phrase "Don't throw me into that briar patch" more than a few times. To ban this movie is to ban everything American. Its ridiculous! Its not just suppressing the first Amendment, its suppressing art.

I still have my beloved copy of "Uncle Remus: His Songs and His Sayings". My mother gave it to me for my birthday when I was in second grade. She bought it after watching me go directly to it every time we were in our local bookstore.

Maybe I should burn it and join a group of ugly loud-mouthed angry liberal women and fairy soyboys at anti-Joel Chandler Harris rallies across the county.

Naw. It's going on display it in my curio cabinet with other cherished mementos.

Gosh! I’ll bet it’s still ok to use terms like bigot, honky, white supremist, pig, Jesus freak, Jew Boy, deplorables, and other hate-whitey obscenities we white colonialists (conservative) have to endure.

And Ernie, lest we forget those two beautiful colloquialisms - "mo'fo" and "yo mama"......

Such sweet sounds.......

"Iraq’s Parliament calls for expulsion of US troops from the country."

Trump: “...please don't throw me into the briar patch.”

I'm sure Trump used the same line in reference to his impeachment.
