Democrats in California are pushing to rename Orange County’s John Wayne Airport, citing the actor’s language on racial issues in the 1970’s.
The Democratic Party of Orange County passed a resolution on Friday condemning the iconic western film actor for “racist and bigoted” statements he made in an interview with Playboy magazine in 1971. The resolution calls for the airport’s administrators to remove Wayne’s “statue, likenesses and name” from the premises, purging the memory of the longtime California resident from the facility, which had been named after him in 1979. Instead, the Democrats want the airport to be blandly and plainly re-titled the “Orange County Airport.”
Chairperson Ada Briceno of the Orange County Democrats confirmed the desire to eliminate Wayne’s memory. “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.“
Democrats are pointing to Wayne’s remarks in which he defended what he defined as “white supremacy,” until “the Blacks are sufficiently educated.”
Wayne also defended the conquest of the territorial United States by European Americans in the Playboy interview, arguing that “so-called stealing of this country from them was just a matter of survival,” in reference to Native Americans.
Newport Beach city officials are also pushing to rename a city park named after Wayne, making it clear that the legacy of one the most prominent 20th century Americans is no longer welcome in the state that was once known for the cultural achievements of the nation in the post-war era.
Wayne is known not only in American film but globally for playing iconic cowboys in American Westerns such as “True Grit” and “The Searchers.”
Lexington, Kentucky Mayor Proposes Defunding Emergency Rental Assistance to Fund Critical Race Indoctrination
What a waste.
The mayor of Lexington, Kentucky has aroused community backlash after supporting a proposal to fund implicit bias training for city employees using funds previously appropriated for coronavirus emergency rental assistance.
Lexington’s woke mayor is taking funds for poor people and using them to pay a rich white woman so she can teach city employees how to become woke… this is progressivism in the 21st century https://t.co/DuPk8tiyfQ

A left-wing housing group wants Mayor Linda Gorton to fund racialist implicit bias training by defunding the city’s police department, as opposed to stripping a rental assistance program instituted to help Lexington residents in the midst of the coronavirus recession.
Gorton’s critical race indoctrination program has an estimated investment of $120,000. Funding for the program is expressly removed from a remaining $240,000 allocated earlier in the year for rental assistance.
Here is where @MayorGorton (referred to as "the administration") makes this proposal. Note: the funds were "unallocated" bc of bureaucratic slowness, not bc they are unneeded. The current amount dedicated to rental assistance will leave 2/3 of current applicants unfunded. pic.twitter.com/MaCjXt2iCl

Gorton is yet to respond to criticism over her plan to defund housing assistance for left-wing ideological training.
Other national progressives have fought to implement left-wing critical race theory trainings even as the American public reels from the effects of the coronavirus pandemic. President Donald Trump signed two executive orders this year banning the use of divisive “trainings” by federal agencies or government contractors. Sources working with Joe Biden’s purported transition have indicated that the neoliberal Democrat will reverse the executive orders if he’s inaugurated, reinstalling critical race theory in government.
It’s hard to think of a more apt representation of luxury progressivism, defunding common-sense rental assistance for beleaguered people in order to enrich a woke ideologue for giving anti-white lectures.
