SHOULD THERE BE A NATIONAL JOHN WAYNE DAY?

In 2015 Texas honored John Wayne on his 108th birthday by making him an honorary Texas and declaring May 26, 2015 John Wayne Day.

This year California Republican State Assemblyman Matthew Harper of Huntington Beach sought to declare May 26, 2016, as John Wayne Day to mark the day the actor was born. Harper’s resolution fell on a 35-20 vote to what Harper called “the orthodoxy of political correctness.” The fact that California would not honor John Wayne in this way seems a bit backwards since John Wayne did so much to promote the state. In the heat of this controversy many have suggested John Wayne’s Birthday of May 26 should be declared NATIONAL John Wayne day! Assemblyman Travis Allen, R-Huntington Beach said “He stood for those big American values that we know and we love,”. What do you think? Should there be a National John Wayne day to honor this American Actor and Patriot?

    YES! Is there anything to consider??? As far as John Wayne, DUKE, being called a “racist” by our California Assembly, I feel these ignorant beings should do their homework. Especially, the fool who claimed he was a racist was a Hispanic State Assemblyman! First off, he was married to 3 Latino women! He also had a man he called his dear friend, J. Hampton Scott, an African American whom he called, “Scotty” worked for him as a security guard, valet, and cook. When Scotty couldn’t work for him anymore, Wayne, bought him a a car wash on Central Ave that provided him with a solid living and they remained friends for years. On the Searchers, a little Indian girl was extremely sick, and Wayne got his personal plane to fly her to the nearest Hospital to save her life. He saw some of the women in this small town walk miles to do their laundry in a dirty river and the children had nothing to do in their town. So, Wayne put the money up to build a well and a playground for the children. Is this what you call a “racist?” He didn’t care if you were black, white, brown, purple, Jewish, Christian, Catholic, etc.., He just believed that anyone wanting to be called, AMERICAN should earn the Right & Privilege by working hard and having respect for this great land and not to suck off the tit of America for FREE and then complain! John Wayne created more work for Californians in his films and ALL his films had diversity. MORE work than California can offer us now! Duke’s so-called comments were taken out of context and 30 years ago meant something entirely different today! California is going down the drain because of ignorant people in our Assembly!
