Liberals Come After John Wayne 48 Years After His Death
John Wayne aka The Duke was born in 1907 and died in 1979. He lived through WWI all the way up through Vietnam. He entertained millions with his many westerns that had a theme about how a man was supposed to be. But in this culture much like Monty Python and Mel Brooks movies, his films would likely never be made.
Society is drastically different than it was 48 years ago. Beliefs are different and in many ways we have grown as a people. But Liberals apparently couldn’t find anything to be triggered about so they decided to dig up an old interview to bash a man that has long since died and has no way to defend himself.
In 1971 John Wayne was interviewed by Playboy and was asked many questions about race and other now inciting subjects. He answered as you’d expect a man born in 1907 would.
PLAYBOY: What kind of films do you consider perverted?
WAYNE: Oh, Easy Rider, Midnight Cowboy—that kind of thing. Wouldn’t you say that the wonderful love of those two men in Midnight Cowboy, a story about two fags, qualifies?But don’t get me wrong. As far as a man and a woman is concerned, I’m awfully happy there’s a thing called sex. It’s an extra something God gave us. I see no reason why it shouldn’t be in pictures. Healthy, lusty sex is wonderful.
PLAYBOY: Angela Davis claims that those who would revoke her teaching credentials on ideological grounds are actually discriminating against her because she’s black. Do you think there’s any truth in that?
WAYNE: With a lot of blacks, there’s quite a bit of resentment along with their dissent, and possibly rightfully so. But we can’t all of a sudden get down on our knees and turn everything over to the leadership of the blacks. 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.
PLAYBOY: Many militant blacks would argue that they have it better almost anywhere else. Even in Hollywood, they feel that the color barrier is still up for many kinds of jobs. Do you limit the number of blacks you use in your pictures?
WAYNE: Oh, Christ no. 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. If it’s supposed to be a black character, naturally I use a black actor. But I don’t go so far as hunting for positions for them.
I think the Hollywood studios are carrying their tokenism a little too far. There’s no doubt that 10 percent of the population is black, or colored, or whatever they want to call themselves; they certainly aren’t Caucasian. Anyway, I suppose there should be the same percentage of the colored race in films as in society. But it can’t always be that way. There isn’t necessarily going to be 10 percent of the grips or sound men who are black, because more than likely, 10 percent haven’t trained themselves for that type of work.
PLAYBOY: […] For years American Indians have played an important—if subordinate—role in your Westerns. Do you feel any empathy with them?
WAYNE: I don’t feel we did wrong in taking this great country away from them, if that’s what you’re asking. Our so-called stealing of this country from them was just a matter of survival. There were great numbers of people who needed new land, and the Indians were selfishly trying to keep it for themselves.
Liberals online, of course, crucified him calling him a piece of sh*t or worse. But some understood that it nearly 50 years ago.
Ben Shapiro commented about it on Twitter.
I look forward to us digging up every celebrity corpse and then screaming for it to rethink its position on key political issues. That should be fun.

Matt Walsh from the Dailywire also commented about the controversy.
John Wayne was born in 1907. Breaking news, folks: every human born in 1907 or earlier had opinions you would find abhorrent today. You may be able to find a few exceptions to this rule, but not many.
