Critical Thinking by John WayneA Zen Thing . Articles of Interest . Politics . Video
This is an interesting interview with John Wayne, from 1975. It is interesting because what he says in directly applicable to current events. The Duke speaks to the tactics used by liberals then and still in use today. Yes, John Wayne is something of a hero for me. Yes, John Wayne wasn’t his real name; the audio is important for what he says, not necessarily who is saying it.
LANGUAGE WARNING, the audio contains some swears and curses that may not be appropriate for children.
The audio should start out with this quote… “Hell yes, I’m a liberal. I listen to both sides before I make up my mind. Doesn’t that make you a liberal? Not in today’s terms, it doesn’t. These days, you have to be a fucking left-wing radical to be a liberal. Politically, though … I’ve mellowed.”
Another great John Wayne quote:
“I’m quite sure that the concept of a Government-run reservation… seems to be what the socialists are working for now — to have everyone cared for from cradle to grave…. But you can’t whine and bellyache ’cause somebody else got a break and you didn’t, like those Indians are. We’ll all be on a reservation soon if the socialists keep subsidizing groups like them with our tax money.”- John Wayne

The 4:24 audio clip you posted does not contain the John Wayne quote “Hell yes, I’m a liberal…”
Here is a current event/interview that directly echos what John Wayne said back in 1975.
“I wish someone in Hollywood would come up and answer that question,” Actor Kevin Sorbo said. “I don’t want to cut people’s freedom of speech down but the other side does. They can have their opinions but say I can’t have mine?”
