Posted on 07/20/2019 9:38:28 PM PDT by david1292
The New York Times and Washington Post used the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 space flight and moon landing to push a political knife fight, said Robert Charles, spokesperson for the Association of Mature American Citizens (AMAC), in a Wednesday interview on SiriusXMs Breitbart News Tonight with hosts Rebecca Mansour and Joel Pollak.
On Wednesday, the New York Times framed the Apollo program as a failure in terms of female astronautical participation.
In an article titled, To Make It to the Moon, Women Have to Escape Earths Gender Bias, the New York Times claimed, The Apollo program was designed by men, for men. But NASA can learn from its failures as it aims to send women to the moon and beyond.
The Washington Post similarly highlighted the demographic composition of the 1960s-era space program as largely white and male, stating it was difficult to spot a person of color in photos of the programs teams.

Wait! Men are from Mars! Women are from Venus. If you are female, its to the moon Alice. Aah! Creatures of the press. What a mess they make.
I am so tired of the left sitting in their cozy comfy santimonious pc hindsight chair and judging history by extremist libtard socialist standards ofl21st century luxury.
Fuch them all.
No one made them arbiters of morality. Their morality kills babies and thinks a persons skin color or sex bits is more important than competence. These geniuses think there are 70-some genders. These snowflakes call mommy when an editor points out they spelled words wrong.
Sounds like Ralph Kramden was ahead of his time...
Ah, you beat me to it with your Post #3.
It was by White men for White men, because no one else could get the job done. And puh-leze don’t give me nonsense about the “Hidden Figures” fiction. ONE half-black woman (Katherine Johnson) had a job to check the calculations of the NASA computer with a slide rule. It was never wrong. That’s IT. Like with most innovations in world history it was men, whether White, Asian, Jewish or otherwise, who got it done.
The first person on Mars MUST be a transgender person of color! It’s only fair!!
White leftists are concocting all this nonsense. They don’t give a damn about gender or racial equality. It’s all about keeping people victims and indebted to the Democrat Party, and keeping the entrenched White leftist power brokers in charge!
You forgot they also need to be Muslim too.
And a Furry.
Okay so heres the thing.
I went to see the Neil Armstrong biopic tonight. In the beginning its all about navy aviation, jets flying off carriers in the 50s. Pioneers. And beyond. Into space pushing the envelop- where that term originated
And Im thinking about my father. He flew for the marines off carriers in the pacific. Naval academy grad. Engineer. These are guys my father flew with. He got out after his commitment was up. Was a corporate VP for Motorola at a very young age. Ground floor of semiconductors
My father watched space flight like it was his. These were guys hed flown with but he figured everyone thought the same way. Everyone was as excited about space flight.
In 1@81 Im in college. My father calls me early one morning, really early. I say glad to hear from you but whats the deal?
Parent you up watching the space shuttle launch?
No but Im up now. I turn it on and we watch it
My father has friends, old fight pilot buddies, other kids, a son, a brother, but he calls me, his 19 year old daughter, to watch the shuttle launch with him
People who generalize that these men were simply misogynist are not interested in the true story.
Screw the media. And the idiot feminists.
Thanks for the post. The a$$holes talking about these events, Know less than nothing. The men who lived it and passed it along to their children are true heros. Those who knew them personally were truely blessed. In many cases it was their true passion, but they backed away for family obligations. Its nice to know some still appreciate it. IMO
America is a Swimming Pool.
The DNC Media is a Baby Ruth Bar.
To the Left, the moon landings only show how America sucks.
A good way to tell if someone is obsessed with something is if they drag that topic into every conversation they’re having. It’s clear that the left is obsessed with identity politics.
That word “woke,” a fabrication meant to distract everyone from what really matters. Nonsense. Never let the left set the agenda, in any way, especially concerning vocabulary and culture. Nonsense!
It is the fault of white man if women do not like math and make fun of those who study math...
Remember sitting in class with eyes glazed over in boredom because the pace of the class was set by the slowest student? The libs would be perfectly happy to stall the country’s technological advancement until ‘equality’ is achieved before allowing any individual independent progress.
