lol, you assume me....Last I heard Ameriky was a plague ridden shithole country. They can call their airports what they like but few tourists are gonna want to visit the most infected toxic dump on the planet. They should concentrate on washing their hands, wearing masks and keeping at least 4,242 miles away from me. I heard the EU were even thinking of banning Yanks from going there on holiday.

There may be a link between voting for an ex gameshow host with a toupee of his own hair combed around his empty head who suggests the virus may disappear in April or could be treated by injecting disinfectant into the lungs or shining light inside the body and the fact they've lost 125,000 people, have massive unemployment and are seeing their economy going down the u bend.
Winging about what a long dead actor said in a 1971 Playboy interview is hardly current news, nor going to help anyone with the massive problem of the pandemic. If you want to know more here's a summary of the interview where he elaborates on slavery and the colonisation of America.
Fill your boots -
In the 1971 interview, Wayne railed against “perverted films,” giving the interviewer, Richard Warren Lewis, two examples when asked: “Easy Rider” and “Midnight Cowboy.”
The actor described the characters in the latter film with a homophobic slur, then went on to extol the virtues of sexual intercourse between men and women.
“I believe in white supremacy,” he said, and spoke harshly about African Americans, saying, “We can’t all of a sudden get down on our knees and turn everything over to the leadership of the blacks.
“I don’t believe in giving authority and positions of leadership and judgment to irresponsible people,” he said.
Of slavery, he said that he didn’t feel any guilt.
“I don’t feel guilty about the fact that five or 10 generations ago these people were slaves,” he said. “Now, I’m not condoning slavery. It’s just a fact of life, like the kid who gets infantile paralysis and has to wear braces so he can’t play football with the rest of us.”
And he spoke harshly about Native Americans when asked whether he felt any empathy for them, given the centrality many of them played in the Westerns he had worked on.
“I don’t feel we did wrong in taking this great country away from them, if that’s what you’re asking,” Wayne said. “Our so-called stealing of this country from them was just a matter of survival. There were great numbers of people who needed new land, and the Indians were selfishly trying to keep it for themselves.”
