Twitter Firestorm Emerges Over
1971 John Wayne ´Playboy´ Interview

Daily Caller, by Celine Ryan

Original Article

Posted By:Pluperfect, 2/20/2019 5:11:40 AM

Forty years after his death, John Wayne’s views on race and homosexuality have suddenly sparked a firestorm of tweets from users who believe his comments are somehow representative of America as a whole in the Trump era. After a viral tweet began to circulate over the weekend, highlighting portions of a famous 1971 Playboy interview, the phrase “John Wayne” was trending on the platform by Tuesday evening as users found their feeds flooded with both outrage and confusion at the new-found relevancy of the interview. The tweet highlighted particularly jarring portions of the interview

It seems there are a lot of people that have way too much time on their hands and not very much to actually think about. Get a life, do something meaningful.

Seems like some people have such a need to be offended that they have to search back half a century to find a dead person to offend them.

As John Wayne observed: "Life is tough. It´s even tougher if you are stupid".

#2: Excellent quote. My personal favorite of his is, of course:

Ned Pepper: "That´s pretty bold talk for a one-eyed old fat man!"

Rooster Cogburn: "Fill yer hand, you son of a b**ch!"

The country started it´s long slow decline the day that the Duke died! My all-time favorite movie star! His movies always had the best music to start out with and then super fun action with the Duke towering above everyone! He made everyone except Clint Walker look like a punk! Imagine him in the world of Feminine men and Masculine women of today! I´m 65 and have a few years left before I go to be with Jesus...you young people are in for a rough go in the near future as your democRATic party takes the US to Communism (labeled as Socialism)... Prepare Comrade to sacrifice for the good of the state!

It was a different country 50 years ago. And the Dukes comments represented the views of tge vast majority of the population. Expressing opposing views would have ended any career.

Give me a breaK! What is going on? Do people actually comb the files looking for quotes that they feel are racist? Has the USA gone completely nuts? Next thing you know any quotes found offensive will be excised and put down the memory hole, a la 1984.

#1, This is their life and they believe it is meaningful. They are dedicated to tearing down anything they find offensive and there is no end to their outrage. Anything remotely masculine or pro-American is a target. Little by little they are winning the cultural war which is a big deal.

The left needs men to be passive, vain creatures who will go along to get along. Clearly, they have feminized men and that’s not all. They have pushed a radical gender identity issue down our throats. Gays are ascendant and woe to anyone who does not agree with that. Women have become exhibitionists who glorify make up, hair and fashion. It is all so superficial. Real men are an anathema to the culture. Toxic masculinity is reviled as evil. They want soy boys who can’t be bothered to act like real men for fear their dos will get mussed up. They don’t want equality of the sexes, they want feminine domination. Like most controversial issues in this country, it really comes back down to what God has ordained versus what man wants. Rejection of God’s authority is the root of their strategy.

Illiteracy rates are a good indicator of educational status. Illegitimate rates are a good indicator of responsibility.

What are they? Are they the same for all identifiable groups? Do some groups have significantly higher rates than others?

If we´re not going to take the numbers seriously, why keep asking about "race" on every government form? If we are, why do we keep preventing people from asking those questions and talking about what´s causing the answers?

The answer, my friend, is they´re not interested in helping people they like; they´re interested in hurting people they hate. They hate people who educate themselves effectively, procreate responsibly, and live their lives without becoming a burden on themselves or others. The kind of people who don´t need their help, don´t want more government intrusion into their lives, and don´t want to be governed by liberals.

People like John Wayne.

I wish somebody would point out to the #MeToo, anti-male, social justice, and politically correct zealots that their rage against past issues is often being taken OUT OF HISTORICAL CONTEXT. In order to legitimately interpret past events, we need to understand the social, religious, economic, and political conditions that existed at the time! We reach the wrong conclusion if we continue to judge past social behavior by contemporary standards.
It´s hard to know whether their disregard for the details is intentional or whether our society is so dumb-downed that nobody´s realized what´s happening.

per·vert·ed: adjective - characterized by sexually abnormal and unacceptable practices or tendencies.
- Films portraying homosexuality were “perverted”

It reads like any other example sentence out of a dictionary. Homosexuals are a single digit minority (abnormal) and the practice has been taboo throughout human history and forbid by every major religion.
So what´s the complaint?

All conservatives should make a list of their childhood heroes—sports stars, movie stars, military, religious, even political. The left has done this already, and one by one they are destroying them in order to destroy us and make us doubt the value of everything we love. Where will we draw the line in the sand?

Like the Confederate flag and statues, the Left has long loathed John Wayne. Wayne represents America at its best in all ways, while the Left represents all the worst of America. They should be glad he is dead, for if he were alive today, he would burn their hair with his response to their hateful anti-American attitudes and hate for white culture. The Left will not stop until they can tear down all things that the Right loves. John Wayne is one of those things.

I haven´t read the interview but I do know this was 1971. Were you there? It was the cultural upheaval that led to today -- Nam, hippies, drugs, the pill, abortion gaining steam, domestic terrorism, women and blacks getting loud, on and on....

John Wayne was a vocal critic at that time and Playboy was, well, Playboy. Don´t you know the magazine had an agenda going in and made sure to get what they wanted.

Sure Wayne may have been a throwback in 1971 but the criminal, seditious media have been doing their thing for a very long time as well.

Evil triumphs when people cease to make distinctions between right and wrong.

When that happens, the moral relativists then declare that the only sin is in labeling something as sin.

While this should harm them by their own petard, liberals are not logical enough to see the self-defeating fallacy in their position.

The left’s problem is not that the Duke’s comments are wrong. It’s just that they’re too frank. Progressives know that homosexuality is perverse. Their intention is to mainstream perversity.

Progressives believe that blacks are inferior and incapable of taking initiative, learning and running their own lives - they just don’t say it out loud!

I´m sorry, but the facts are simple, we have been bombarded with propaganda by the lavender mob and truth has suffered. Homosexuality by any standard is perversion. Men and women were engineered, if you will made if you won´t to be sexually compatible with each other. The definition of perversion is something twisted or changed from normal to not normal. Sex is normal BDSM is perversion, calling, as has been done for about fifty years, perversion normal does not change the facts. I could care less who does what to who with what sex organs, that´s between themselves and their belief system. Just don´t ask me to buy into your belief or change what I believe to accommodate yours.

Careful libs, John Wayne has always been the iconic American hero and any criticism of him would be like us criticising MLK or one of your pretty boy heroes.

Yes, homosexuality is perverted as has been written for two thousand or more years and the majority of blacks are undereducated or failed to learn. It´s the truth, get over it.

Playboy was a fine publication (as judged by the huge circulation at the time) and will never be replaced by Vanity Fair, People or Vogue. Cry all you want but John Wayne, Steve McQueen and Clint Eastwood (or the characters they portrayed) were the very definition of men and still are. If you don´t like it, bare your fists and come on out, pilgrim.

If the Duke were allowed to observe from a distance what America´s commitment to "Diversity" hath wrought in the forty years since his death, he´d be relieved as hell that he didn´t live to see it.

John Wayne never dressed in blackface at did both the Virginia Governor and Virginia AG, who did their dirty deeds WAY AFTER John Wayne made these alleged comments. Also, near as I can tell, John Wayne was never accused of rape, as is the Virginia Lieutenant governor. All THREE are still officiating in their elected capacities. And so interesting how these stories have totally fallen off the radar screen. But, I digress.

I believe that of his multiple marriages, Wayne was married to a Peruvian, a Panamanian and a Latina. Yeah he was a racist. As others have said, some people have WAY too much time on their hands.

The Left’s war on American culture began with the “summer of love”. John Wayne was one of the first outspoken patriots to be Alinskied; isolated, frozen and attacked. He was the embodiment of masculine power and authority, gentlemanliness and chivalry, love of country and love of God.

The year prior to the Playboy interview, early 1970, John Wayne won his first Oscar for Best Actor in 1969’s “True Grit.” In his acceptance speech he quipped, “Wow! If I’d known that, I’d have put that patch on 35 years earlier.” Wayne’s win caused convulsions within the “progressive” Hollywood community; he wasn’t a “real” actor, only someone who repeatedly played a caricature of himself in the same old hackneyed cowboy role. They considered his win a travesty.

The “controversy” and vilification continued, at least in the Los Angeles media. The 1971 Playboy interview was a part of this, giving Wayne a forum to express his views so that they could be parsed under the new “politically correct” lens. In the spring of 1971, I gave a speech in sophomore English supporting Wayne’s great performance of a character that was entirely outside his previous body of work. I got my first PC pushback from about one quarter of my parochial school classmates.

So now the Left revisits its first “kill” hoping there’s still enough blood to throw on MAGA, so as to cover their own fetish for blackface and Klan outfits. I doubt any of them will ever note that Wayne insisted Marguerite Roberts receive title credit for her script, the first since she had been “blacklisted” for her leftist views. A magnanimity of spirit and understanding unknown to totalitarians.

MAGA – Nothing will stop it.

Interesting concept, #31. As I recall through the fog, the left hated the Vietnam War, the military in general, Richard Nixon, violent movies, laws against marijuana, the man (police), religion, corporate greed, foreign IT workers, non-union businesses and truck drivers, Southerners (rednecks), Jews, farmers, Rock ´n Roll. Yeah, pretty much the same with a few notable exceptions.

"I won´t be insulted. I won´t be lied to. I won´t be laid a hand on." John Wayne, American.

Compare with the evolved, globalist character of: Hamas Hussein Obama, Hillary Benghazi, "Comanchero" Warren, Alexandria-Socialist-Communist, Dr. Infanticide and Mr. Cuomo, and evolved, complex, shades of grey Luciferians augering in through the unexpected grace given to a President who believed, like the Emperor Constantine: "in hoc signo vinces."

I recall reading a Playboy interview during this same era with Paul Newman, no conservative icon he, in which he categorized and classified the various modes of sexual intercourse. He actually referred to it using the so-called "F-word". Paul Newman designated a Mercy (insert F-word) as being reserved for librarians. Will the history revisionists dig up this 50 year old interview and give Mr. Newman a posthumous condemnation? Librarians are one of the more reliable constituencies of the left-wing coalition.

The left´s, ´heroes,´ seem to all prove to be ranting phonies with permenent sneers and cold eyes. The enormous chip on their shoulder also gives them away. Their shared ugly image does not represent the true character of the USA. John Wayne, in contrast, authentically represents the heart of America, its noble history and its traditional spirit of freedom. ...Which is why people starving for their own inherent Rights & personal Liberty want to immigrate to this country.

It is tragic to see it seems so many already here do not respect this country with all of its blessings of freedom, opportunities and, yes, history.

Anyone who thinks Wayne was a White supremacist should know that both his wives were Latin American.

if you have a moment, find "The Alamo" - John Wayne had the role of Davy Crockett -

there is a part in there where he talks about being part of a Republic - it´s really moving (to me, anyway)

I dated a guy in high school - family owned a huge spread of ranch land. His dad was then the benefactor from HIS father. The entire basement was nothing but The Duke....oil paintings, studio artifacts from his movies, etc. His parents lived Duke and loved his grounded life. Obviously total conservatives.

The guy I dated - after yrs apart by geography, we are friends now years later and I ask about his dad´s "man cave" - which wasn´t in existence as such then - and he says he still has it. Duke is still ever present. They are an incredible family. Raised 3 strong conservative kids. It ripples out into the world in the grandkids and nephews and nieces. Families like this are rare now.

#58, I loved that part of the movie. As I recall, it was made to Linda Cristal, the Argentinian beauty who played his love interest.

In real life, Jim Bowie, who invented the knife and who died at the Alamo, was married to a Latina from an old and prominent Texas family. So the casting of a Latina as Wayne´s lady in the movie seemed accurate from an historical perspective.

Imagining Trump’s America
Without Robert Mueller
Atlantic, by David A. Graham    Original Article
Posted By: Pluperfect- 3/23/2019 12:11:42     Post Reply
For nearly two years, the American public, and quite a few observers overseas, have hung on Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s every word and action: each hire, each redaction, each revealing and yet opaque footnote in hundreds of filings. His fans have indulged in devotional candles and meme T-shirts. The document that Mueller delivered to Attorney General William Barr has been so eagerly awaited that its official name might as well be “The Highly Anticipated Mueller Report.” This must be uncomfortable for Mueller, who shuns publicity, doesn’t seem to have much taste for politics, and has maintained a silence

The Southern Poverty Law Center is a ‘scam’
Washington Examiner, by Becket Adams    Original Article

The Southern Poverty Law Center’s problems go well beyond the fact it’s a vicious, left-wing attack dog with no care whatsoever for the reputational and personal harm it causes by lumping Christians and anti-extremist activists with actual neo-Nazis. As it turns out, the SPLC is a cynical money-making scheme, according to a former staffer’s blistering tell-all, published this week in the New Yorker. The center’s chief goal is to bilk naive and wealthy donors who believe it´s an earnest effort to combat bigotry. The only thing worse than a snarling partisan activist is a slimy conman who merely pretends to be one.

Democrats are conspiring to reelect Trump

Watch in slow motion as Democrats, goaded by the media, conspire to reelect President Trump: Voters care about the economy and making education and health care affordable. And so Democrats are talking about . . . abolishing the electoral college? Sen. Elizabeth Warren (Mass.) started the latest distraction at a CNN town hall on Monday. “Get rid of the electoral college,” she said, neglecting to mention that this has zero chance of occurring in the foreseeable future. The media took it from there. On Tuesday, MSNBC’s Garrett Haake pressed former representative Beto O’Rourke (Tex.)

Five things that didn´t happen

Robert Mueller has delivered his report on the Trump-Russia investigation to Attorney General William Barr. Sometime soon, perhaps within hours, Barr will send the report´s "principal conclusions" to Congress. It will first go to the chairperson and ranking member of both the House and Senate Judiciary committees. It is unclear what will happen after that, but certainly other lawmakers will see the document, and there will be a steady stream of leaks of what is in the report. The Mueller investigation is over, and it is apparently the case that Mueller does not recommend any new indictments.

Who is the biggest threat to our constitutional order? It is not President Trump. Ever since Trump took office, Democrats have been telling us he is an authoritarian who threatens our system of government. Well, today it is Democrats who are declaring war on the Constitution. Leading Democrats are promising that, if elected in 2020, they will abolish the Electoral College and might also pack the Supreme Court with liberal justices -- allowing them to marginalize Americans who do not support their increasingly radical agenda and impose it on an unwilling nation.

The mainstream media seemed to suffer a collective shock Friday evening after the office of Special Counsel Robert Mueller handed its final report of its Russia investigation to the Department of Justice. MSNBC host Chris Matthews seemed livid that neither President Trump, his children, nor his “henchmen” would face any criminal charges from the special counsel. “Maybe he missed the boat here,” Matthews said of Mueller. “Because we know about the Trump Tower meeting in June 2016, we know about the meeting at the cigar bar with Kilimnik [Konstantin Kilimnik, a Russian political consultant].

James Comey claimed in an op-ed Thursday that he does not care one way or the other whether special counsel Robert Mueller finds evidence that President Donald Trump conspired with Russia to influence the 2016 election or obstructed the FBI’s collusion probe. But the claim, which Comey made in The New York Times, is at odds with the former FBI director’s testimony about his actions shortly after being fired by Trump in May 2017. Comey testified to the Senate Intelligence Committee in June 2017 that he leaked memos he wrote after conversations with Trump in order

The Crying of Lot 330

The prospect of a 225-bed homeless shelter on the Embarcadero, one of San Francisco’s most scenic and economically vital areas, took residents by surprise. Only eight days earlier, the proposal had been unveiled to turn what is now a parking lot—Seawall Lot 330—into the largest homeless shelter of its type in the city. Neighbors arrived en masse at the Port Commission hearing to express their views. It was standing-room only, with people crowded on floors and in aisles, and spilling out the door.

Last August, House investigators interviewed FBI deputy assistant director Jonathan Moffa about the Trump dossier, the collection of sensational allegations about Donald Trump and Russia compiled for Democrats during the 2016 campaign by the former British spy Christopher Steele. Republican lawyers had a simple question. Had the FBI confirmed any of the claims in the dossier? Moffa´s response set a new standard for non-answers. "So, I like to talk about this in kind of a living sense," he began. "Though, because the idea is, you´re never — you´re constantly evaluating that reporting, you´re constantly looking at incoming intelligence streams and investigative results.

Facebook officials admitted on Thursday that the tech giant stored hundreds of millions of user passwords in plain text -- able to be read by employees. "As part of a routine security review in January, we found that some user passwords were being stored in a readable format within our internal data storage systems," Facebook´s vice president of engineering, security and privacy Pedro Canahuati wrote in a post on the company´s website Thursday morning. "This caught our attention because our login systems are designed to mask passwords using techniques that make them unreadable," he added. "We have fixed these issues

Fox News contributor Dan Bongino weighed in on the pending lawsuit against CNN over its coverage of the viral confrontation between the Covington Catholic High School students and Native American elder Nathan Phillips, saying the liberal network has a serious trust issue. The legal team of high school student Nicholas Sandmann launched the massive $275 million lawsuit against CNN, accusing the network of ignoring the facts and putting its “anti-Trump agenda first” after portraying the MAGA hat-wearing teenagers as the aggressors in the altercation. CNN responded to the lawsuit, saying it “reported on a newsworthy event & public discussion

Florida, with its plentiful beaches, warm weather, and lack of a state income tax, is the most popular destination for older adults in the U.S. But some who have lived in the Sunshine State for years are moving in the opposite direction. As damaging storms and other effects of climate change have hit Florida particularly hard in the past few years, some older adults living there have become concerned about their safety and their ability to enjoy retirement. So they’re fleeing this otherwise balmy state. About 52,630 people ages 65 and over left Florida in 2017, versus 48,174 in

Barbra Streisand is under fire for comments she made about two men accusing Michael Jackson of sexually assaulting them as children. The legendary singer and actress said that Wade Robson and James Safechuck — whose allegations against the late King of Pop resurfaced in the recent documentary “Leaving Neverland" — “were thrilled to be there” and that what allegedly happened to them “didn’t kill them." Streisand, 76, made the strange comments to British newspaper The Times in a piece out Friday, in which she also said that Jackson’s “sexual needs were his sexual needs.”

Even though we do not yet know exactly what the Mueller Report says, we do now know that no other indictments are in the works. No collusion with Russia by the Trump campaign was found. So, the self-assured and confident predictions by so many on the left that they had seen "cold, hard evidence," and that Mueller would find copious evidence of "collusion" with Russia, was just wishful thinking alone. They all had to know the infamous "dossier" was faked.

The Washington National Cathedral disputed President Trump´s claim that he had to "approve" the funeral of the late Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.). "Washington National Cathedral was honored to host the funeral service for Senator John McCain. All funerals and memorial services at the Cathedral are organized by the family of the deceased; only a state funeral for a former president involves consultation with government officials," a cathedral spokesperson said in a statement to The Hill on Thursday. "No funeral at the Cathedral requires the approval of the president or any other government official," he added.

This spelling and grammar test from the 1980s is so difficult that it is claimed no one can get more than 50 per cent of the answers right. The 20-question quiz promises to leave even the brightest brains scratching their heads. Indeed it is so tricky that its creator, Playbuzz user Terry Stein, claims players will ´never´ be able to score more than 10 out of 20. So if you think you have what it takes then scroll down to take the test in full. But the answers are at the bottom - so no cheating...

First of all, of course everyone should wait to see the contents of the actual Mueller report before drawing any specific final conclusions about it. But here are some laws of nature in the modern age: If that report contained a fraction of the damaging material breathlessly awaited in the media culture for two years, there would be some smoke signal of it. Instead, we saw an actual finding from the Justice Department that there would be no further indictments from the probe. No indictment of Trump. No indictment of anyone associated with the campaign or the administration to support

Feinstein tweeted: “In country after country, massacres are followed by sweeping changes to gun laws, as logic would dictate. The United States needs to follow these examples and take action to protect Americans from this deadly public health scourge.” She attached a statement to her tweet wherein she noted: Here at home in America, since the 1999 shooting at Columbine High School, we’ve suffered through at least 227 school shootings that killed 143 and left

MSNBC’s top Russiagate conspiracy theorist Rachel Maddow burst into tears on Friday — after the past two years of her reporting was revealed to be nonsense.On Friday, it was revealed that there would be no more indictments from Robert Mueller’s office, sealed or otherwise, which completely contradicts the tall tales that she has been selling her viewers. Barely holding it together, Maddow emotionally explained that she is on a fishing trip in Tennessee and came into a studio — despite having had the day off.

The Association of Black Seminarians posted a petition online earlier this month as a response to a report that detailed the seminary’s history with slavery, which was released last year. So far, the group has collected more than 400 signatures on the petition, which asks for $5.3 million annually to fund tuition grants for black students and establish a Black Church Studies program.(Snip) “Princeton Theological Seminary is uniquely positioned to lead the theological academy in addressing historic, structural, educational
