Red Alert Politics ^ | 6/10/14

In a tweet Tuesday, President Obama’s official account attempted to draw attention to the plight of women workers, saying that it wasn’t 1963 anymore — when, as implied by an image and text, man first walked on the moon.

Headline?

Publishers struggle to correct racist "mistake"
First Moon Landing Was in 1963 Not 1969
Publishers admit mistake, claim no racist intent. "We'll see," says White House.

“everyone in all 57 states knows man first went to the moon on October 4 1957...think it was the Russians who landed and walked around at that time?...guy named Laika, I think?”

Actually, I'm going to disagree with the piling on here - I saw the graphic and while it's easy to think they're trying to say the moon landing was in 1963, what it actually says is that the act was passed in 1963, and since then, man has walked on the moon while the problem still exists.

Which of course is a good argument for the inability of the federal government to do certain things in the first place.

Americans have a certain cultural memory. Certain things are important to us. Most of those events and their details wouldn’t register with people who are raised in foreign cultures.

Young people, like the ones in the White House, have no cultural memory. Anything that happened before they were born is ancient history.

The moon landings happened years before I was born, yet I know the dates involved, the key names, and locations. Not everyone younger than you is a useless piece of crap.

I concur, but our side would be ridiculed to no end for it. So, I say let it burn.

We’re possibly mistaken on this, much like the leftists were who ripped on Sarah Palin for her “Party like it’s 1773” mistake. (In similar fashion, she was actually using the earlier date of the Boston Tea Party rather than 1776.)

We are now obligated to apologize to the same extent that they did. In other words, not at all. :=)

What years did Barack Obama live outside of the United States? It’s not like they were going to cover this sort of thing in Indonesian school.

Maybe we DID land on the moon in 1963. And we hushed it up because we didn’t want to Russians to feel bad.

Goes to show.....Obama is too dumb to know when Americans first walked on the moon, and his readers are too dumb to notice.

Yah, especially when Obama puts up a picture of US astronauts walking on the moon, with a huge 1963 over the picture.

Every American child in the 1960s remembers watching the first moon landing, and all the excitement surrounding the event.

Obama was just a couple weeks shy of his alleged eighth birthday.

What American kid wasn’t clamoring for a telescope? The toy market was inundated with themes of space travel and astronomy.

What kid didn’t think of that flag as a symbol of us, America, laying claim to the moon, as if it belonged to us, just as surely as a newly discovered land on Earth?

The moon landing changed the way everyone over the age of five viewed the world and our place within it.

Even those thought it was a hoax were deeply changed by it. It was a big deal for everyone.

But Obama thinks all this happened when he was almost two years old? Obviously he never experienced one of the most formative events in every American childhood in the latest half of the twentieth century.

Who is he? We still don’t know, but we know he’s not one of us.

The colossal stupidity of the left is entertaining.
What raises libtardism to Comedy Gold status is the endemic arrogance of the left wherein they convince each other that they are brilliant.

Obama is alleged to have been born in 1961. On a number line, that’s to the left of 1969.

I think you’re missing the point entirely, but if despising people younger than you is your thing, then go for it.
