John Wayne the racist

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — What a California lawmaker intended as a benign resolution honoring a late, world-renowned movie icon exploded into an emotional debate over decades-old racist comments.

The state Assembly defeated the official ode to John Wayne Thursday after several legislators described statements he made about racial minorities and his support for the anti-communist House Un-American Activities Committee and John Birch Society.

    …the fuckers ruining the country won’t stop until some very bad things happen. John Wayne now, and earlier, the Stars and Bars, “polar bear hunting”, veterans as terrorists, gun owners as terrorists, Christians (NOT mooslimes) as terrorists, the employed as terrorists, same sex bathrooms, gay wedding cakes, gay wedding catering, SJWs, ‘free speech zones’, LaVoy Finicum’s murder, the entire Bundy family events, Malheur, Ruby Ridge, Waco – the Davidians and the bikers, open door borders, and on and on and on… we need more ammo. And…
    oh hell… let’s get it on.

    This is why CA needs to slide off into the Pacific – nothing really worth keeping there these days..

    So, like the Stars and Bars, make every day John Wayne Day.

    It’s so easy to combat this PC shit it’s not even funny.

    I think a stars & bars with John Wayne superimposed on it would be good.

    take away MLK holiday, take down street signs and rename the streets, remove his pictures from school books, He Used “The N Word”. Many many many times. More than Paula Dean even.

      A great John Wayne quotation, Rob. I had that on the wall in my lab for about 10 years. It was a caption under the picture of the Duke with a helmet 30 degrees off center from The Sands of Iwo Jima. It used to piss people off something fierce.

    Just so sad, and pc. But FDR was great for his internment camps
