John Wayne's statue should come down at Orange County airport

And the name should be changed. He was a bigot.

The things he said about black, Native Americans and gays are horrid.

^blacks (plural).

He is already a cultural relic. Could it backfire?

JFC, don't waste your time. He was a boy named Marion who liked to play dress up. Better to take down an Orange County Republican. Vote the bastards out.

His son is in that video in the OP, and of course he's coming to his defense with a thin excuse.

by Anonymousreply 1206/27/2020

His son defends him by saying that he made a lifetime of contributions to the country, and the quotes are taken out of the context of the entire interview and his life.

Question: Is there a context where those remarks are okay??

Also, note that this video was posted over a year ago...

Sure, let's invest time and money in making sure a largely forgotten actor is expunged,,,,,,,or we can invest the effort into electing a more aware candidate.

Don't forget Pilgrims. He mentioned them a lot.

John Wayne is an icon of American racist values. He was a draft dodger who made a living riding horses on movie studio backlots, firing guns loaded with blanks at other actors and who wore short-shorts on his off time. He was no hero.

I feel like this thread needs this. We all need this. It's been almost 40 years and I still don't know wtf it is though.....

Can somebody explain why Orange County produces a lot of right wing assholes like John Wayne? Is it the type of industry, just a cultural thing, etc? I'm curious.

White males are just toxic. It's them their the real problem in America.
