    Orange County Democrats condemn ‘racist’ comments by John Wayne, call for airport to drop his name


    John Wayne Airport could be renamed over ‘racist and bigoted’ remarks made by 'The Quiet Man' actor. Orange County’s Democratic Party is hoping sundown is on the horizon for the Duke.



    Officials with the Democratic Party of Orange County passed a resolution condemning film legend John Wayne’s “racist and bigoted statements” made decades ago and are calling on the county Board of Supervisors to drop his name, statue and other likenesses from the airport.



    This week, officials passed an emergency resolution condemning film legend John Wayne’s “racist and bigoted statements” made decades ago and are calling on the Orange County Board of Supervisors to drop his name, statue and other likenesses from the international airport. The resolution also asked the board “to restore its original name: Orange County Airport.”


    “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,” said Ada Briceño, chair of the Democratic Party of Orange County. According to the crafters of the resolution, who include Briceño, the effort to oust Wayne is part of “a national movement to remove white supremacist symbols and names [that are] reshaping American institutions, monuments, businesses, nonprofits, sports leagues and teams.” The resolution adds: “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.”


    The resolution notes that the county is much more diverse than it was in
    1979, when Orange County Airport was christened John Wayne Airport. Democrats point to a Chapman University survey released earlier this year that said 79% of county residents polled believe “that O.C.’s increasing ethnic diversity is a source of great strength for the region.” At the heart of the latest drive is a widely discussed 1971 Playboy Interview in which Wayne makes bigoted statements against Blacks, Native Americans and the LGBTQ community.


    He infamously 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.” He later said that although he didn’t condone slavery, “I don’t feel guilty about the fact that five or 10 generations ago these people were slaves.”


    He also felt no remorse in the subjugation of Native Americans. “I don’t feel we did wrong in taking this great country away from them. … [O]ur so-called stealing of this country from them was just a matter of survival,” he said. “There were great numbers of people who needed new land, and the Indians were selfishly trying to keep it for themselves.”


    He also considered movies such as “Easy Rider” and “Midnight Cowboy” perverted, and used a gay slur to refer to the two main characters of the latter film.


    Briceño believes the renaming is possible because of two factors: changing demographics and the wave of protests following the death of George Floyd while in the custody of Minneapolis police.


    Last year, registered Democrats outnumbered registered Republicans in the county that embraced Wayne and GOP Presidents Reagan and Nixon. “The numbers have grown since last year to where I believe we have something like 40,000 more Democrats than Republicans,” Briceño said. She added the protests that followed the death of Floyd after a Minneapolis police officer knelt on of his neck for almost nine minutes has put police brutality and white supremacy in the face of Americans who had not witnessed such aggression. “Who wants to be tied to white supremacy?” Briceño asked. The resolution was signed by Briceño; Fred Smoller, Chapman University associate professor of political science; and Michael Moodian, Chapman lecturer of leadership studies.


    Smoller and Moodian wrote an op-ed for the Voice of OC on June 23 in which they stated, “as Confederate statues and odes to Christopher Columbus are taken down across the country, Orange County must come to grips with its own tribute to a racially polarizing figure: John Wayne. The time has come to rename our airport and remove Wayne’s statue.” There is also a separate petition calling for the removal of Wayne’s name that has gathered over 600 signatures.


    The airport is situated between the cities of Newport Beach, Costa Mesa and Santa Ana. Newport Beach City Councilman Kevin Muldoon, who as that city’s mayor in 2017 led a push to name a city park after Wayne, did not return a phone call looking for comment.


    Wayne lived a good portion of his life in Newport Beach, was a county political power broker, a member of the John Birch Society and was buried in the city after his death in 1979. Calls and an email to Orange County Supervisor Michelle Steel, whose district includes the airport, were not immediately returned, nor was a call to Orange County Republican Party Chairman Fred Whitaker.


    Orange County Supervisor Don Wagner said he had just heard about the Democratic resolution and was unaware of its wording or merit. He mentioned previous renaming efforts had “popped up periodically” and usually “don’t have legs” with Orange County residents. When asked about the Playboy article, Wagner said he was aware of the negativity surrounding the interview but had not read it personally.

    BLM Leader Says They ‘Will Burn Down This System,’ to Get What They Want, Trump Calls it ‘Treason’

    A Black Lives Matter chapter president threatened to “burn down the system” if they did not get what they wanted. In response, President Donald Trump blasted the comments as “treason, sedition, insurrection” in a tweet.
    Greater New York Black Lives Matter president Hawk Newsome joined Fox News where he was interviewed by host Martha MacCallum on Wednesday, discussing the direction of the Black Lives Matter movement.

    MacCallum asked Newsome, “You … have said that violence is sometimes necessary in these situations, what exactly is it that you hope to achieve through violence?”

    Newsome responded, “Wow, it’s interesting that you would pose that question like that, because this country is built upon violence. What was the American Revolution, what’s our diplomacy across the globe?

    “We go in and we blow up countries and we replace their leaders with leaders who we like. So for any American to accuse us of being violent is extremely hypocritical.”

    MacCallum regathered herself, then clarified that her question was inspired by things Newsome had said in previous interviews.

    “I said,” Newsome told the host, “if this country doesn’t give us what we want, then we will burn down this system and replace it. All right? And I could be speaking… figuratively. I could be speaking literally. It’s a matter of interpretation.

    “Let’s observe the history of the 1960s, when black people were rioting,” he went on. “We had the highest growth in wealth, in property ownership. Think about the last few weeks since we started protesting. There have been eight cops fired across the country.”



    The comments made by Newsome prompted President Trump to express his disapproval on social media, categorizing Newsome’s remarks as deserving of serious legal remedy.

    President Trump wrote, “Black Lives Matter leader states, ‘If U.S. doesn’t give us what we want, then we will burn down this system and replace it’. This is Treason, Sedition, Insurrection!”

    Black Lives Matter had been criticized in recent weeks for their political bent. One BLM co-founder, Patrisse Cullors, admitted in a 2015 interview that she was a “trained Marxist.” Cullors also called for Trump’s immediate resignation in an interview with CNN’s Jake Tapper.

    A BLM Chapter leader penned an article urging white people to give up their homes for people of color.

    Another threat of violence was heard from a notable member of Antifa and CHAZ/CHOP resident who warned white Americans that there would be more burnings and lootings if they did not get things right.

    Antifa Member Arrested After Attempting to Topple Jackson Statue Also Reportedly Attacked Jack Posobiec

    An Antifa activist known for assaulting conservative media figures has been arrested for his role in the vandalism of an Andrew Jackson monument.

    An Antifa member known online for assaulting and harassing conservative personalities was arrested by federal law enforcement for his role in the attempted destruction of an Andrew Jackson monument near the White House; the accused has reportedly been identified as a “ringleader” in the attempt to destroy the monument.
    Jason Charter was arrested on Thursday morning by federal officials and charged with destruction of federal property, according to Fox News.

    The FBI’s criminal complaint cites video of the incident and claims Charter can be seen assisting and directing the vandalism, as well as firsthand involvement in the toppling and subsequent burning of a statue of Confederate General Albert Pike in Washington.

    Charter self-identifies as a member of the Antifa movement which was recently designated a terrorist group by President Donald Trump.

    However, this is not the first time Jason Charter has been filmed engaging in criminal or otherwise suspect behavior. Last month at a protest calling for the removal of an Abraham Lincoln monument, One America News reporter Jack Posobiec was assaulted by a group of antifa protesters and physically forced to leave the area after having water thrown on him and his phone stolen. A tweet from Ian Miles Cheong identified a man in a red visor “who assaulted Jack Posobiec repeatedly and refused to let him go to the police.”

    A reply to the above tweet identifies the man as Jason Charter who replied to confirm his identity, saying “Yep that’s me.”

    Gateway Pundit reporter Cassandra Fairbanks also accused Charter of calling her phone number late at night “like a weirdo”, and referred to a video Charter posted of himself addressing her saying “Cassandra, you need to take a chill pill. Nobody threatened you, nobody did anything to you… I was laughing the entire f***ing phone call”

    It may also be noted that Charter, despite his involvement with the far-left group Antifa, was allowed to attend CPAC while several notable conservative media figures were banned due to accusations of being too far-right.

    The Post-Millennial, with Gavin McInnes, considers that Charter may have been responsible for the latter’s removal from the Conservative Political Action Conference. During McInnes’s interview with Jared Holt, a far-left activist also permitted to attend CPAC, Charter confronted McInnes and left, only to be seen again as McInnes was being removed from the venue.

    The Department of Homeland Security has announced a task force for the protection of federal monuments and statues against future such attacks.

    President Trump Threatens 10-Year Prison Sentence for Monument Vandalism

    President Donald Trump on Tuesday stated he will sign an executive order that “reinforces” federal law pertaining to the willful destruction of plaques, statues or other monuments honoring members of the U.S. armed forces.

    Trump earlier tweeted about protesters who attempted to topple a statue of President Andrew Jackson which is located in Lafayette Park, across from the White House. Jackson, the seventh U.S. president, has been criticized for his treatment of African Americans and Native Americans.

    A federal statute already in place subjects anyone who “willfully injures or destroys, or attempts to injure or destroy, any structure, plaque, statue or other monument on public property commemorating the service of any person or persons in the armed forces of the United States to fines, up to a 10-year imprisonment or both.”

    Trump on Tuesday morning claimed he has authorized the federal government to “arrest anyone who vandalizes or destroys any monument, statue or other such Federal property in the U.S. with up to 10 years in prison, per the Veteran’s Memorial Preservation Act, or such other laws that may be pertinent…”

    Prior to leaving for Arizona Tuesday, Trump told reporters, “I will have an executive order very shortly, and all it’s going to do is reinforce what’s already there, but in a more uniform way.” Confederate monuments and others tied to racism have come under increased and renewed scrutiny in the wake of the death of George Floyd and resultant Black Lives Matter protests.

    I'm a little confused about this article. In the Midwest and Northern States, Germans and Czechs mainly used their own families to plant and harvests crops over the generations along with purchasing land from previous land owners. Many Germans did not own slaves and enjoyed 10 plus children for running those family farms. Plus, the Amish did not aggressively steal land or enslave Blacks for cheap exploitative labor. Currently, the Amish can't successfully bid against larger US corporations and foreign investors such as Saudi and China namely who grow their own crops to transport abroad. To complicate Black claims further, Black slave owners who have been freed or born "free" also owned large plantations who may have employed over 1000 laborers at times.

    Black Lives Matter founder admits org's creators are 'trained Marxists,' BLM's goal is to 'get Trump out'

    The Black Lives Matter co-founder has a leftist agenda to get President Trump out of office



    The Black Lives Matter organization continues to expand and holds more influence now more than ever. BLM, which was originally founded in 2013 in response to the acquittal of George Zimmerman in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin, now has a global network of more than 40 chapters.

    Black Lives Matter, which was created by Alicia Garza, Opal Tometi, and Patrisse Cullors, has a self-described mission to "build local power to intervene in violence inflicted on Black communities by the state and vigilantes."

    "We affirm the lives of Black queer and trans folks, disabled folks, undocumented folks, folks with records, women, and all Black lives along the gender spectrum," the BLM website reads. "We make space for transgender brothers and sisters to participate and lead. We are self-reflexive and do the work required to dismantle cisgender privilege and uplift Black trans folk, especially Black trans women who continue to be disproportionately impacted by trans-antagonistic violence."

    BLM goes much farther than only making sure the world knows that "Black lives matter." The organization also focuses on a myriad leftist causes. The BLM website states that the group focuses on "issues concerning racial injustice, police brutality, criminal justice reform, Black immigration, economic injustice, LGBTQIA+ and human rights, environmental injustice, access to healthcare, access to quality education, and voting rights and suppression."

    "We engage comrades with the intent to learn about and connect with their contexts," the site states.

    Black Lives Matter doesn't specifically note that they are Marxists on its website, but one of the organization's creators admitted that they subscribe to Karl Marx's ideology. In a newly resurfaced video from 2015, Black Lives Matter Global Network co-founder Patrisse Cullors reveals that she and her fellow BLM creators are "trained Marxists."

    “Only the lower natures forget themselves and become something new. Thus the butterfly has entirely forgotten that it was a caterpillar, perhaps it may in turn so entirely forget it was a butterfly that it becomes a fish.” - Kierkegaard, Fear and Trembling

    "Myself and Alicia in particular are trained organizers. We are trained Marxists," Cullors said in the 2015 interview. "We are super-versed on, sort of, ideological theories."
    Oh I’m sure. She’s one of the darker ones, and it shows.

    This whole frenzy has been so bizarre. I'm trying to think of how we've somehow decided this is the most pressing issue of our times, the murder of one man. (I think there is something to be said about cops generally being dickheads who tend to have a certain strain of a lowbrow type of racism, and there have been (relatively rare) instances such as the George Floyd incident where fairly cold-blooded murder occurs, but the vast majority of cop-on-black violence is an unavoidable byproduct of interfacing with criminality, which is a disproportionately black endeavor.)

    The closest thing I can come up with as far as an explanatory factor goes, is the discrepancy between white and non-white Americans' sense of tribalism. It's something we completely lack, in all our individualism, and that basically every other ethnic group still fiercely maintains. So of course white people are more than happy then to trade in any and all collectivist assets (which amount to about zero) for a few virtue-signaling brownie points when they complain about "systemic racism". It's extremely shameful, the way these people are disparaging their ancestors, but their motivations are apparent through this lens.

    The inevitable result of this, which has been slowly happening and is, now, seemingly accelerating, is that our history is going to eventually be thoroughly condemned to a new ethological prison. Never mind that any historical people would've taken the same path our ancestors did if they could and that this retroactive moralizing is absurd; the bigger issue I have with it is that we're going to end up slandering and vilifying our ancestors, whom I'm confident on average possessed a stronger moral fiber than almost every person living in modern society today.

    I do think there are a large number of white Americans who are fed up with all of this, especially among the older generations (think of how our grandparents must feel, or would've felt, about these recent events). But even if that may be true, there is no outlet to express these feelings, to make an even basic kind of defense of our heritage, that won't result in ostracism.

    And honestly, individualism has taken such root in our mindsets, that in real life I personally can't say I really feel any meaningful affinity with a random person of my ethnicity here. It just isn't there, as much as I hate that that's the case. And of everything, that's probably the biggest reason I'm not optimistic that any of this recoverable at this point. I still hold out a little bit of hope though that, when things get bad enough, it provokes a counter-reaction.
