“The resolution states that the renaming is part of a larger movement to remove ‘white supremacist symbols and names [that are] reshaping American institutions, monuments, businesses, nonprofits, sports leagues, and teams’.”
Apparently, the lily white left is so desperate to prove it’s not racist and that it’s well and truly woke, the wokiest!, that it’s hunting for things to rename in the name of looking like they care about anything remotely related to black people. Like a two-runway airport no one’s ever heard of named for an actor the majority of the rioter youth have probably never heard of.
In Orange Country, California, they are indulging themselves in a campaign to rename John Wayne Airport. I kid you not.
Democratic officials in Orange County, Calif., are calling for John Wayne Airport to be renamed amid the resurfacing of comments the late Western movie star made decades ago.
On Friday, the Democratic Party of Orange County passed a resolution condemning the Duke for “racist and bigoted statements” he made during an interview with “Playboy” in 1971, according to the Los Angeles Times.
The resolution called for the Orange County Board of Supervisors to remove Wayne’s name, statue,and other likenesses from the international airport and “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, chairperson of the Democratic Party of Orange County.
The resolution states that the renaming is part of a larger movement to remove “white supremacist symbols and names [that are] reshaping American institutions, monuments, businesses, nonprofits, sports leagues, and teams.”
I’m pretty sure that Joe Biden’s campaign staff/handlers told him to stop calling young women “lying dog-faced pony soldiers” after the debacle earlier this year, but someone needs to tell him that the hero he likes to ramble on about and (mis?) quote is now persona non grata.
Like Olivia notes, it's a joke that was met with…. drumroll… laughter in the room and from the questioner. It's from a John Wayne movie and he's made it plenty of times before. Sorry to ruin the fun twitter! https://t.co/XIbn8wF53W https://t.co/5D0Kk06RGK

As to the Democrats of Orange county, what can you say? In the future, people will speak of their bravery, their contribution to racial harmony in the hushed tones we now reserve for those who walked with Martin Luther King, Jr. Or you know, just laugh really loudly about what self-aggrandizing, clueless twits they are.DONATE
