Another great American hero has been shut down by the screaming mob of evolutionarily-challenged filth that is occupying our nation.
What a California lawmaker intended as a benign resolution honoring a late, world-renowned movie star has 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.
Republican state assemblyman Matthew Harper of Huntington Beach sought to declare 26 May 2016, as John Wayne Day to mark the day the actor was born.
“He had disturbing views towards race,” objected assemblyman Luis Alejo, a Democrat, leading off a 20-minute debate.
Alejo cited a 1971 interview with Playboy in which Wayne talked disparagingly about black people.
“I believe in white supremacy until the blacks are educated to a point of responsibility. I don’t believe in giving authority and positions of leadership and judgment to irresponsible people,” he told the magazine.
Assemblyman Mike Gipson, who is black, said he found Wayne’s comments personally offensive.
Assemblywoman Lorena Gonzalez cited his comments defending white Europeans’ encroachment on American Indians who Wayne once said “were selfishly trying to keep it for themselves”.
That was all in a single interview with Playboy.
Here’s an extended quote:
I believe in white supremacy, until the blacks are educated to a point of responsibility. I don’t believe giving authority and positions of leadership and judgment to irresponsible people … I don’t feel we did wrong in taking this great country away from [the Native Americans] … Our so-called stealing of this country from them was just a matter of survival. There were great numbers of people who needed new land, and the Indians were selfishly trying to keep it for themselves.
We have now set a completely insane precedent, which necessarily means that every White man who lived before the early 1990s is evil, by default.
Our Leader will defend us and he will defend The Duke.
These brown people who the Jews have set to rule over us are going to go through and remove each and every one of our heroes.
And who will they replace them with?
Brown people, apparently. Just random ones from anywhere.
They’re putting an illiterate criminal human trafficker on the $20 bill – because hey, she’s Black!
Trafficking 30 escaped slaves (yes, only 30) – even if you think that was a good thing – in no way compares to directing, producing and starring in True Grit, which was only one of many of John Wayne’s accomplishments. And he’s not even allowed to celebrate his birthday in his home state.
This is an extremely high-profile replacement, and that’s the best they could come up with. Who are they going to build statues of when they tear down all of our heroes in DC?
