I'm so jaded anymore to participate in these discussions. The Duke was a Man of Men. Yes rough around the edges by todays Millenial's standered. He was of a time when 17 year old's joined the military in WW2 and died in Normandy. A time when there was no money to spare.

Now grown men need safe havens from hurtful words. People in positions of power want to erase history over it. History is history for a reason. It's in the past. Either learn from it, or let it go for God's sake.

I'm drowning in a cesspool of Political Correctness..... It's getting to sludgey.

But this needs to be talked about. Thanks OP😊👍

John Wayne was a talentless prick. Why should he be honored for anything outside of Cowboy movies?


THANK YOU.

Yes, I am a fan of his work.

But, I also tend to try to learn about the real person. He was a draft dodger for one thing (depending on who you choose to believe).

Read a biography about him.

A draft dodger you say.... I shall read up on that. But it doesn't exclude the people of the era.😊




Edit:

"Wayne applied to the U.S. Naval Academy, but he was not accepted. He instead attended the University of Southern California (USC), majoring in pre-law. He was a member of the Trojan Knights and Sigma Chi fraternities.[18]:30 Wayne also played on the USC football team under coach Howard Jones. A broken collarbone injury curtailed his athletic career; Wayne later noted he was too terrified of Jones's reaction to reveal the actual cause of his injury, a bodysurfing accident.[19] He lost his athletic scholarship, and without funds, had to leave the university.[20][21]"

Could an injury have kept him out?

Not so much a Collarbone. But something else? Ronald Reagan though having served. Never actually saw action.

He was. The injury story is a half truth.

Fact is, he chose Hollywood over military.

You really have to read more then one source to get to the facts.

Eliminating Confederate flags, Civil War memorials, John Wayne from the collective mindset will save everyone from hurt fee-fees.

And before anyone ever says anything, run it through the pee-pee police first so no one wets themselves.

How many dead actors have holidays in their honor? But not having one for John Wayne is erasing him from history? Who's feelings are hurt exactly?

The only one I can think of is Reagan who gets his, with all his fellow office holders, on President's Day.

"By the start of World War II Wayne had been suffering for years from a badly torn shoulder muscle incurred in a body surfing accident that cost him his football scholarship at USC in 1927. He also had a bad back from performing his own stunts during ten years acting in “B” Westerns. Moreover, he suffered from a chronic ear infection, resulting from hours of underwater filming on Cecil B. De Mille’s Reap the Wild Wind in 1941. Had Wayne actually undergone a pre-induction physical, he might indeed have been classified 4-F." Per Breitbart. .

He also suffered from a inner ear injury. That alone would keep someone out of the military even during the height of ww2.

"After the draft was instituted in 1940, not all of the young men who registered were accepted into the service. Thirty percent of registrants across America were rejected for physical defects. The 4-F classification was given primarily for muscular and bone malformations, hearing or circulatory ailments, mental deficiency or disease, hernias, and syphilis. There were ramifications when a man got that classification."

Obviously sensitive people like yourself that panic and soil themselves when someone says something that isn't washed through a politically correct panel of angry activists.

I haven't seen such a conglomeration of whiny sissies since I accidently walked into a Tom Brady press conference.

Different times and social standards. There were rumors he was gay too, but I believe his Hispanic wives have fervently denied that was ever the case.

Edit add: on aside note in reference to a Holiday named for him? Sheesh, who really cares? Most holidays have become complete hogwash, do we really need another one?

All this is going to do is divide Americans even further apart. The citizens that make up the normal part of America will retaliate while the societal rejects will celebrate their latest "victory." Pitiful.

Every time the outrage circus finds cause for anger regarding someone's speech, they only do so to feel better about themselves. They don't care about anyone else. It's an addiction to their own feelings.

Exactly right. Martin Luther King thought homosexuality was a mental disorder, for example.

Jesus... It's amazing how deluded conservatives are! What Wayne said there was racist and it has nothing to do with PC. How do you miss this?
