#1 I wonder if John Wayne actually said 'white supremacy'? I somehow doubt it.

Indeed. Turns out he did use those words, but the rest of the sentence gets clipped and removes the context. From a Playboy mag interview in 1971:

Playboy: Angela Davis [a Communist professor in the San Francisco Bay Area] claims that those who would revoke her teaching credentials on ideological grounds are actually discriminating against her because she’s black. Do you think that’s true?

Wayne: With a lot of blacks, there’s quite a bit of resentment along with their dissent, and possibly rightfully so. But we can’t all of a sudden get down on our knees and turn everything over to the leadership of the blacks. I believe in white supremacy until the blacks are educated to a point of responsibility. I don’t believe in giving authority and positions of leadership and judgment to irresponsible people.

I can believe it. "I just read Playboy for the articles" was a running joke, but at one time, in addition to pix of naked persons of the female persuasion, the mag ran some great fiction and had interesting interviews with famous people. No idea about current content, but I'd wager that, like The Atlantic and Scientific American, it has turned to SJW crap.
