"[GWTW] like statues and monuments klan outfittings and speeches--belongs
with those
brethren in a museum.  And alongside these mementos explanations
and criticisms giving these their proper contexts.  In this case that
museum's name is TCM. "

I concur comrade. Putting the movie in context is entirely reasonable and
in no way is a form of censorship. At the time of the movie's release in
1939 a minority of critics took it to task for its historical fallacies and
its generic racism, but mainstream critics and movie goers overlooked those
historical distortions, something that is no longer possible today.
