Republican State Assemblyman Matthew Harper sought to have the 26th May, the day Wayne was born made into John Wayne day. You have to walk as if yer trying to avoid yer butt plug from falling out, go all limp wristed, talk like yer having a stroke and be a bit of a cunt muffin.
The one note Oscar winning actor was a Republican, anti-commie draft dodger but is celebrated all over the US. Airports and schools are named after him. Why should he have his own day? James Stewart was way better and actually served in WWII .... shit even Henry Fonda who was older than Wayne served because he didn't want to pretend to be a soldier while others were actually doing it but Wayne in true Republican style had no problems with getting out of serving.
Remember, he only played at being a hero .... make believe. Heroes run into burning houses to rescue people or join up to go fight Nazis.
Clark Gable was 6 years older than Wayne, he was 40 when he joined as a photographer and aerial gunner. Hitler had a price on his head and wanted so badly to shoot him down as he was a fan.
None of these guys served either though Trump feels like he did cos he played dress up like Wayne did.
Republicans want to send yer kid to war while that dirty commie Sanders wants to send them to
collage colledge college ... what the fuck?
So giving the draft dodger his own day was shot down when his 1971 interview with Playboy was brought to light. He then turned into that crazy old racist uncle that you only see at Thanksgiving who always makes a dark meat comment and while he doesn't know any coloreds he is sure they are destroying the cuntry.
One of his playboy pictures cos naked weemen are just so faggy.
Wayne said, "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."
That sounds fine, not like there are any irresponsible white people in positions of authority. Dennis Hastert was third to the presidency once and he was very responsible .... for making dirty land deals and molesting children that is.
Wayne also slagged off Native Americans for not wanting to be invaded. They wanted the land for themselves the greedy injuns "selfishly trying to keep it for themselves" ... "I don't feel we did wrong in taking this great country away from them."
They want to rape all the white weemen too! Wayne was very equipped scholastically .... well except when he failed to get into the naval academy and only got into the University of Southern Callyfornia on a football scholarship .... he had to leave after an injury stopped him from playing. So yeah college drop out, any issues going on there?
While he reckoned his lung cancer was from him smoking 6 packs a day his stomach cancer is thought to have come from making The Conqueror. Not only was it ranked as one of the worse films ever it was shot in Utah near to the nuclear bomb testing ground. 91 of the cast including the stars all got cancer at some time in their life but getting it for such a shite movie, could be seen as karma as it was terrible.
A tired and puffy looking Trump getting the endorsement of Wayne's daughter, if that is worth anything.
Wayne would so fit in at Trump rallies punching the head of any black person there to protest. I bet he'd hate Muslims too.
Wayne won the best actor award in 1970 for True
shit Grit in which he stretched his acting abilities to the limits to play a mean old man. He didn't think much of the Brilliant Midnight Cowboy getting the best picture award as those kind of movies are perverted, "Wouldn’t you say that the wonderful love of those two men in Midnight Cowboy, a story about two fags, qualifies?"
"I’ve directed two pictures and I gave the blacks their proper position. I had a black slave in The Alamo, and I had a correct number of blacks in The Green Berets."
I'm surprised he didn't mention the slopes or gooks.
The Alamo .... The Mexicans were the good guys fighting to keep THEIR cuntry together while the defenders who were illegal aliens were fighting for freedom, one of those freedoms was the right to keep slaves.
Wayne played the emotionally stunted hero that didn't save the day. David Crockett (no one called him Davey) was a congressman who failed at getting re-elected so thought he'd try a new start in Texas, he probably didn't wear a coon skinned hat either. It is now thought he survived the battle to be executed but that doesn't stop the tourist trap that is the current day Alamo from marking where he died fighting.
The Alamo was a huge fortress but now it's marked as an old chapel that probably didn't see much of the action. Jim Bowie was a slave smuggler looking for a new life because he was wanted in other places for dodgy land deals. Colonel Travis was a lawyer avoiding prosecution for debts. So yeah, a bunch of twats.
You can spin history, misrepresent it and have a rosy recollection of who were heroes but we seem to find out eventually and as with the racist homophobe that is Marion Morrison yer werds often come back to hurt you so don't be a cock juggling thunder cunt.
