The Orange County Board of Supervisors is considering renaming the John Wayne Airport and removing all likeness (Statues) of John Wayne at the airport, Due to remarks he made 50 years ago.

John Wayne lived in Southern California for many years. He attended the University of Southern California where he studied law and played football.

John Wayne had an incredibly successful entertainment career. He earned one Academy Award for best actor and was nominated three additional times and earned two  Golden Globe Awards for best actor. He lived in Newport Beach, California for several years until his death in 1979.  

His life was filled with success and honors. He earned the Congressional Gold Medal in 1979 which is given to citizens who make tremendous contributions to society and requires 2/3 Congressional approval, 1980 Presidential Medal of Freedom (posthumously by Democrat President Jimmie Carter) and in 1998 was awarded the Naval Heritage Award for his tremendous support of the US Navy during his entertainment career. 

John Wayne is so revered and appreciated he has an airport named after him, the Pioneer Trail in Washington named after him, John Wayne Parkway in Maricopa, Arizona and part of highway 347 in Arizona honors his name.   

Please join me in stopping this ridiculous, cancel culture move on behalf of the Orange County Board of Supervisors. Block them from removing John Wayne’s name and removing his statue from the John Wayne airport. 

Call,email, text and tweet the Orange County Board of Supervisors let them know how you feel about this idiocy.. Flood their social media and emails. Lisa A Blartlett is the 5th District Supervisor.  Let her know how you feel.  They need to know they serve the people NOT special interest cancel culture idiots !!!  

This petition got 20,000 signatures in ONE day and counting,, amazing !! Please reach out to any media connections you have.  OAN, FOX, OC Register and LA Times would be outstanding.  Out of the 50,000 supporters there has to be someone with connections. If we can get a major news personality to run this petition on their show we could hit a million and put huge pressure on the OC Board of Supervisors.  Marisa Wayne, The Duke’s daughter, has it on her tweeter.
