John Wayne hated the Hippies, and we hated him. This is good -today! It was not so good back then when millions of American’s heard Wayne tear into us, especially after he made the movie ‘The Green Barrets’ . Today, John’s memory s being dragged down and evicted from the University of Southern California’s School of Cinematic Arts. Did Reagan go there? He hated hippies too because they were against The War in Vietnam – which we hippies called a White Supremist War against the Asian Race. My kin, Senator Thomas Hart Benton called for Whites to marry the Chinese. He was defamed at the Oregon State University. The Benton brothers got into gun and pistol fight with Andrew Jackson and his bunch – in the streets! Wayne’ was a Draft Dodger!
This morning I googled to see if there was a Hippie Museum in California and Oregon. There is not. The only thing that looks like a Bohemian archive – is this blog. On this day I found THE PEACE PROMOTERS MUSEUM. On this day hippies will now be called Peace Promoters. We buried hippie in 1968.
Martin Luther King announced his stance against the war, but no black group but the Black Panthers came out against the White Supremacy War against people who were called sub-human names like “Gooks”. We Peace Promoters wondered why Native Americans didn’t join us in our marches against the Racist War. AIM took over Alcatraz. Slaves had to be for the Civil War, yet they do not honor white Union Soldiers.
Trump declared War on COVID-19 and it has mimicked the Peace Movement. where it has become a pollical cold war, where Trump is declaring he inherited this Killer Virus from the Democrats and Chinese. We Americans need PEACE more than ever. We do not need more propaganda – in the name of the Son of Peace. Jesus was on our side. He knows the Peace Promoter Museum will be about how the CIA, the FBI, and the Military waged war against PEACE.
I want to do a life-size statue of Rena Easton as ‘The Goddess of Peace’ to put in the our National People For Peace Museum. I call a truce in the cultural warfare we have been waging for six years. We met in 1970 when our Nation was torn in two over the Vietnam War. Huey offered the National Liberation Army of Vietnam, militant support which is prophetic of the worldwide appeal of the Black Lives matter movement. Joseph Stalin put a hit on Wayne who some say worked as a spy. What he was was a CIA grown Icon For War who did have a cultural showdown in the streets with The Killer Duke.

Going against the grain of the anti-war movement, Wayne co-directed the picture (based on the book by Robin Moore) and worked alongside the White House in promoting a more patriotic message. “The Pentagon allowed Wayne lavish use of props and military bases for filming,” the Guardian wrote in 2014. The government “also retained script approval, and insisted on extensive and detailed changes to plot and dialogue.”

In a 1970 letter to the National Liberation Front of Vietnam, founder of the Black Panther Party Huey P. Newton wrote, “we are interested in the people of any territory where the crack of the oppressor’s whip may be heard. We have the historical obligation to take the concept of internationalism to its final conclusion – the destruction of statehood itself.” Disney asks us which figure is worthy of the title of Black Panther: is it the poor African-American child from Oakland who dreams of international revolution, or the monarch who aims at defending the glory of his nation?
Newton developed his theory of intercommunalism in the fall of 1970, two months after his release from solitary confinement, penned in response to his deep disappointment with the backlash from the Black community following the BPP’s pledge to offer troops in support of the National Liberation Front of South Vietnam. Many simply could not grasp what the liberation of Black people could possibly have to do with the Vietnamese Communists against whom the U.S. was waging war. The theory of intercommunalism was Newton’s attempt to lay out a political and economic account of how he understood the world to be structured at the time—under a new type of imperialism—but it was also his attempt at forming a political strategy for how the BPP could expect to move forward in the decades to come as the revolution advanced.
This is a recording of speeches given at a rally held in support of the seven men indicted on conspiracy charges for the October anti-draft demonstrations in Oakland 1967, and also in support of Huey Newton. Speeches by Bobby Seale, Chairman of the Black Panther Party and Black Panther Party co-founder; Bettina Aptheker, Free Speech Leader; Robert Scheer, managing editor of Ramparts Magazine; Bob Avakian, Steering Committee of the Peace and Freedom Party; and John Kelly, professor of U.C. Berkeley Math Department, supporting the anti-draft activities of the Oakland Seven. Held on January 26, 1968 on Sproul Hall Steps at University of California, Berkeley. The Oakland Seven are Frank Bardacke, Terry Cannon, Reese Erlich, Steve Hamilton, Bob Mandel, Jeff Segal, and Mike Smith. Sound levels fluctuate throughout the recording.
An exhibition dedicated to classic film star John Wayne will be removed following student protests over the actor’s history of racist remarks.
The exhibit, at the University of Southern California’s School of Cinematic Arts, featured photos and memorabilia from Wayne’s film career, but has been dogged by controversy since it was installed in 2012.
In a statement, the school’s assistant dean of diversity and inclusion Evan Hughes confirmed that the exhibit would be placed in the university’s archives.
Wayne, who attended the school in the 1920s and died in 1979, made racist remarks in an interview with Playboy Magazine in 1971. Quotes from the interview resurfaced in 2019, and led to a number of campus protests against the exhibit
The Playboy interview quoted Wayne as saying: “I believe in white supremacy until the blacks are educated to a point of responsibility.”
He also said that there was nothing wrong with settlers stealing Native American land, adding that “great numbers of people needed new land, and the Indians were selfishly trying to keep it for themselves”.
The Wayne exhibit will be replaced by a new one that incorporates “elements of Indigenous filmmaking, feminism and critical race theory through interactive displays,” said campus newspaper The Daily Trojan.
