California Liberals Attack John Wayne In Their Political Correctness Purge

John Wayne is one of the most beloved movie stars of all time. He is beloved by millions of people around the world and his films are treasured by people of all generations.

California Assemblyman Matthew Harper, a Republican from Huntington Beach wanted to honor the late American icon by declaring May 26, 2016 as John Wayne Day in honor of the actor’s birthday.

Instead of supporting the proposition, liberal politicians latched onto a few comments Wayne made nearly a half decade ago as their reason to dishonor and neuter the legacy of the actor.

“Opposing the John Wayne Day resolution is like opposing apple pie, fireworks, baseball, the Free Enterprise system and the Fourth of July,” Assemblyman Harper wrote in a statement.

“He had disturbing views towards race,” political correctness advocate and Democratic Assemblyman Luis Alejo said. According to Fox News, Alejo's hatred for the actor stemmed from one quote Wayne had given in an interview in 1971.

“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,” Wayne allegedly told Playboy magazine 45 years ago. Unable to separate an old quote from the history and overall legacy of the actor, Alejo let political correctness rule the day.

Alejo wasn’t the only Assemblyperson trying to bleach history. Assemblyman Mike Gipson and Assemblywoman Lorena Gonzalez, both Democrats, also dug up old quotes, used them out of context, and took personal offense that Wayne’s views didn’t match their own personal politically correct viewpoints.

If the liberal agenda to purge everyone who has ever made a questionable comment from the history books or public view continues unchecked, we as a country will be left with no one. Questionable comments are made and questionable actions are taken every single day by celebrities and politicians from all sides of the political and social spectrums.

It's time to stop attacking long dead people, trashing them, and purging them from history because current people in power can't seem to understand historical context. The world is not the same as it was a half century ago.  

I don’t know about you, but everyday in America is John Wayne day!
