The whiny “woke” liberal radicals are now coming for our Lord and the American legend, John Wayne. Recently, a #BlackLivesMatter advocate and “social justice” activist, Shaun King, tweeted that “white Jesus” was an oppressor, and every statue or image of Him should be torn down and destroyed. It is not wise to call for the desecration of images portraying what our Lord looked like in the flesh. Shaun King is contending with the God of the Universe, and that is beyond foolish. It won’t end well. He has obviously never read the Bible.
Number one, Jesus Christ was a Jew. There is no debating that. So he wasn’t light-skinned or dark-skinned. He was most likely a color in the middle when He was on Earth.
Number two, His glorious Heavenly appearance (which he bore before and after His coming down to Earth) is whiter than the brightest white. Because He and the Father in Heaven (YHWH) are LIGHT – and there is no darkness in Them. Every dark-skinned believer in Christ on this earth will receive a glorious body in the end bathed in that same light, just like every white person will someday.
Number three, as I’ve explained in past articles, in my books, and in my Youtube videos, the color of our skin today means absolutely NOTHING to God and will mean nothing in His eternal Kingdom. Our God in Heaven in colorblind. Read my past articles on Race, and my chapter on Racism in Even More Signs of Our Times for all of the reasons why that is. If you are a believer in Christ, you are my brother and sister. The shade of your skin today has no bearing on that fact. If you’re not a believer, then you’re not my brother and sister. And, obviously, Shaun King is no brother of mine.
He attacked my Jesus as a symbol of “oppression,” when the complete opposite is true. Lord Jesus, and Jesus alone, is the one who frees us from all oppression of Satan that we would have to endure on this Earth. He saves us from every oppressing sin that would separate us from our Holy God and Father in Heaven. Shaun King making God in the flesh out to be just another historical “white man” is blasphemy. He needs to keep my Lord’s Name out of his mouth, unless He praises and uplifts it.
Of course, King probably won’t do that because he appears to be a follower of the false prophet Muhammad of Islam. When a person on Twitter fired back at King’s call for the vandalization of representations of Jesus, and said that he would never call for such attacks on depictions of Muhammad, King responded by saying, “Not a single statue of ‘the prophet’ exists in the world. Not a painting. Nothing. For good reason.”
Well, King is right on one count… “FOR GOOD REASON.” That’s because a statue of an adult molesting children is not only extremely distasteful, but I’m pretty sure it is illegal! I’m referring to Muhammad’s 9-year-old bride, Aisha. Islam allows for child brides, thanks to Muhammad setting the standard for it. He was a violent warmonger, pedophile, and a false prophet. There are no depictions of him in this world because he deserves NO HONOR.
Lord Jesus on the other hand, the Saviour of the world, the King of kings, and Lord of lords, can’t be honored enough! That is why there are so many statues and images of Him all over the world. And I’m not a violent man (like Islamists), I’m a man of peace (like my Lord). But if I ever catch anyone defiling, destroying, and desecrating an image or statue of my Jesus… Michael the warrior is gonna come out. My namesake Archangel physically fights Satan and his fallen angels, so if I gotta fight demonic human beings to defend my Lord’s honor… then a man’s got to do what a man’s got to do.
That is a quote from one of the few other men I have greatly admired in this life, and that’s “the Duke” – John Wayne. The radical liberals have taken a few sound bites from an hours-long interview (from 50 years ago) out of context to claim that he was a “racist.” Nothing could be further from the truth. Because this lie about John spread like wildfire across social media, the California Democrat Party is now trying to change the name of the famous “John Wayne Airport” and to take his statues down.
The Godless heathen in this nation can tear down all the historic statues they want – but when they start targeting my Lord Jesus and my role model, John Wayne, they have got a problem with me personally.
Wayne’s son, Ethan, recently came out to defend his father’s good name and to set the record straight about the interview in question (with the supposed “racist” quotes). In a statement to the media, Ethan said –
“Let me make one thing clear – John Wayne was not a racist. I know that term is casually tossed around these days, but I take it very seriously… his true feelings were wrongly conveyed.
The truth is, as we have seen in papers from his archives, he did not support ‘white supremacy’ in any way and believed that responsible people should gain power without the use of violence. Those who knew him, knew he judged everyone as an individual and believed everyone deserved an equal opportunity. He called out bigotry when he saw it. He hired and worked with people of all races, creeds, and sexual orientations.
John Wayne stood for the very best for all of us — a society that doesn’t discriminate against anyone seeking the American dream. It would be an injustice to judge him based on a single interview, as opposed to the full picture of who he was.”
Throughout his film career, which spanned about 5-decades, John did hundreds of interviews. You can only find these so-called “racist” and “homophobic” remarks in a Playboy interview. Playboy was obviously an edgy magazine that posed tough and uncomfortable questions. At that time in history, what Wayne said was not controversial because times were different back then. To judge him by today’s standards is unfair and unjust.
Still, even today, if you listen to the interview in full context, and look into the times that he was living in, you’ll see there was nothing wrong with what he said. It was his opinion, which he would’ve worded differently had the so-called “racist” words not been inserted into the questions that he was being asked by the interviewer. They literally put words into his mouth. Maybe we should be looking into the interviewer’s views on race – not John’s.
A big reason why America is so damn backwards today is that men don’t model their lives after John Wayne. He was always the good guy, defended those who couldn’t defend themselves, and refused to do films that men couldn’t watch with their daughters. He is my ROLE MODEL. He always will be, no matter how much the loud ignorant haters try to dirty his name. I’ll go to my grave defending John Wayne. And if you wanna put me there because of that, then you’ll have to answer to my God.
The so-called “activists” today attacking Wayne and Christ Jesus are no different than Adolf Hitler’s Nazi regime or Islamic terrorists. They believe that they can reshape the nation to their liking through deception, violence, and intimidation. Well, it won’t work with God-fearing men like me! I won’t cower and I won’t be silent – especially when they attack my two greatest heroes.
These radical anarchists will continue to wreak havoc on this once-God-fearing Judeo-Christian Nation until men dig down and find the courage of John Wayne to stand up to these commie bastards. To everyone who doesn’t like watching the violent protests, riots, and assaults on innocent people, going on in America today, the time has come to stand up and speak out against it. I’ll leave you with these wise words from the Duke to hopefully give you all the courage to do that…
