Outrage after John Wayne’s old interview resurfaces

Hollywood is not Queer Friendly now or in the past, it is and always has been racist, sexist, misogynistic and any rectcon of John Wayne as being accepting of diversity by claiming he was accepting of people who were not White Males as the Apex of civilization. This opinion by his family is ridiculous, because it presumes the film’s Wayne championed were magically less violent because they showed violence normalized in service to the myth of redemptive violence. Evil does who are always characterized not only as doing bad but are intrinsically wrong when visually contrasted with the coded values of Middle Class and Would-be Middle Class White families. Those films affirmed the rightness of their way of life based on predation, making it Noble and beyond reproach by people he considered uncivilized savages unsuited to being full partners in a White defined civil society.
