Democrats Pass Resolution To Rename John Wayne Airport, Say He Was ‘Racist, Bigoted’
By Joseph Curl

Jun 28th, 2020 DailyWire.com


California Democrats in Orange County have passed a resolution demanding that the county’s John Wayne Airport be renamed. But there’s more: They want likenesses of Wayne — photos, statues, everything — removed from the airport, which was named in his honor in 1979, shortly after the western actor died.

“The Democratic Party of Orange County condemns John Wayne’s racist and bigoted statements, and calls for John Waynes’ [sic] name and likeness to be removed from the Orange County airport, and calls on the OC Board of Supervisors to restore its original name: Orange County Airport,” says the resolution, passed Friday.

The board cited remarks Wayne made in a 1971 interview with Playboy.

“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 said in the interview 49 years ago. “I don’t feel guilty about the fact that five or 10 generations ago these people were slaves,” he said at another point.

The demand comes as liberals across the country are pushing to tear down monuments and rename buildings and institutions that they deem to be racist.

The Democrats’ resolution applauds a “national movement to remove white supremacist symbols and names [that is] reshaping American institutions, monuments, businesses, nonprofits, sports leagues, and teams, as it is widely recognized that racist symbols produce lasting physical and psychological stress and trauma particularly to Black communities, people of color and other oppressed groups, and the removal of racist symbols provides a necessary process for communities to remember historic acts of violence and recognize victims of oppression.”

Ada Briceño, chairman of the Democratic Party of Orange County, told The Los Angeles Times that the resolution is not the first attempt to rename the airport, but, she added, said the time has come.

“There have been past efforts to get this done and now we’re putting our name and our backing into this to make sure there is a name change,” Briceño told The Times.

I'm just waiting for the demand to change our currency to get rid of Washington on the $1, Lincoln on the $5, Jackson on the $20, Grant on the $50. Not sure, but I figure they will find something with all of the presidents on our currency.

Well, John Wayne said the American Indian was selfish for wanting to keep their land to themselves, in the same interview.

Andrew Jackson believed the solution to the American Indian problem was complete, and total genocide.

Lincoln, on the other hand believed them to be slightly less than human, as he also believed was the black, and publicly stated that America was for the white man.

So I guess if you want to go back 75 years plus, your gonna get ole Woody Wilson and most of the others.

Now, those are the facts.

Do I think we need to tare down all the statues, and burn all the history books?

No, but a bunch of our history has already been altered, and a lot of folks even here, like the newer improved versions.

All I can do as a 70 year old man is set here and watch.

It won't happen and here's why. Once the Dems get the White House back the will put us into the one world government. One platform of that is a cashless society.
