John Wayne Was A ‘Hollow’ Masculine Icon, The Atlantic Says. The Atlantic Can Go To Hell

John Wayne was an overcompensating pawn — if you take The Atlantic’s word for it.

Reviewing Nancy Shoenberger’s book, “Wayne and Ford: The Films, the Friendship, and the Forging of an American Hero” in this month’s issue of the once-great magazine, Stephen Metcalf soliloquizes on the two icons of early American cinema: director John Ford and his protegé: The Duke himself.

The Left Closes Ranks to Protect the Great Charlottesville Whitewash

President Trump’s ending the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals “on the heels of Charlottesville . . . is [a] signal[] to champions of hate and bigotry that their voices matter most.” It is cause to end President Trump’s voter fraud commission. Defund the Jefferson Memorial. Ban open carry of firearms. Attack free speech. Redouble Linda Sarsour’s Women’s March activism. Rename New York’s Trump Park.
