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.”
WATCH: McCloskeys Hand Postcard of St. Louis Standoff to BLM Activist Harassing Them
The couple that was harassed by Black Lives Matter rioters in an armed standoff at their Saint Louis home handed a BLM activist a postcard of them from the event.
The harasser chants “Abolish the Suburbs” in a repetitive fashion. It seems to escape her that the McCloskeys don’t even live in a suburb, and that their residence is well within the confines of urban Saint Louis.
The McCloskeys were actually picking up some postcards that document their standoff with trespassing rioters from a print shop when they were assailed by the loud individual. Check them out, they’re pretty cool.

Mark McCloskey actually handed off a copy of the postcard on the left to the belligerent woman chanting platitudes at them!
Many conservative patriots and gun rights supporters are surely hoping that they’ll manage to find a way onto the McCloskey’s Christmas mailing lists, as these signed postcards will likely become a collector’s item.
The McCloskeys are still facing a sham prosecution from a Soros-funded Democrat city prosecutor who has consistently refused to charge criminal rioters for acts of property destruction and violence committed during Black Lives Matter rioters. They’ve declined to back down and accept a plea deal, and new revelations of the charges filed against them show a pattern of serious misconduct and politically charged decisions on the part of Saint Louis prosecutor Kim Gardner.
