Another Confederate Related Absurdity

ESPN pulled an announcer named "Robert Lee" off the air to avoid a triggering event. You can read about it here:

A few observations:

1. This is BEYOND stupid.

2. Most Americans are so ignorant of US history they would not know who Robert E. Lee was if the MSM had not told them as part of this latest witch hunt for "white supremacists".

3. I think the most remarkable thing here is that the powers that be now have a tool which can be used to "trigger" the behavior of millions (if not billions) of human beings. From an operant conditioning point of view, this should scare the hell out of any reasonably sane person.
