California Democrats Pushing to Rename Orange County’s John Wayne Airport

One of the most iconic American actors.

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.”

Minnesota Governor Asking President Trump to Declare Riots a Federal Disaster In Hope of Receiving Bailout Funds

Weren’t they peaceful protestors?

Minnesota Governor Tim Walz is requesting that President Donald Trump declare the recent rounds of race riots in Minneapolis a federal emergency, so that the state may access federal bailout funds intended for communities affected by disasters.

Governor Walz and Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey largely stood by idly as race rioters destroyed and damaged more than 700 buildings in the riots, which occurred after the controversial death of George Floyd during a questionable arrest at the hands of the Minneapolis police department. The property damage from the widespread riots is estimated to range in the tens of millions, and Frey is already pushing a federal bailout to repair the damages enabled by his unwillingness to prevent criminality and support of the rioters’ “message.”

Governor Walz referenced the victims of the riots in a statement requesting the bailout, callously ignoring that the victims of the riots were not only victimized by criminal riots, but simply ignored in their hour of need by state and local officials unwilling to confront left-wing criminality in the name of “justice.”

We’re asking our federal partners to step up and help our communities recover, demanded Governor Walz. We need to come together to ensure Minnesotans who were victims of this destruction have access to critical infrastructure they need so they can go to the grocery store, pick up their medication, and live their lives. Together, we will rebuild.

The Governor’s estimate of property damage from the riots is considerably greater than what the mayor estimated, claiming that combined damages from the destruction could cost as much as $500 million.

In the new world of unabated criminality and violent destruction from vicious gangs in Democrat-controlled cities, Democrat officials will always be prepared to come cup in hand to American taxpayers with hopes of funding the repairs of the rioting that they enabled, allowed, and perhaps even tacitly supported. No responsibility or integrity.
