Earlier this week, America celebrated the 50th anniversary of the moon landing — easily one of the most substantial scientific achievements in history. And it was all done with computing technology from the 60s.
There is something truly patriotic about the story behind the moon landing. Driven in part by competition with the evil Soviet Union, America’s mission to put a man to the moon was spearheaded by an “America First” ideology.
Democratic President John F. Kennedy would sound completely out of place in a 2019 Democratic debate by saying things like “ask not what your country can do for you.” He was an unapologetic Cold Warrior who hated communism. And he exemplified the American spirit when he said that we weren’t sending a man to the moon because it was easy — but because it was hard.
Welp, apparently the woke left isn’t feeling the red white and blue this week. You see, it’s deeply problematic that we put a “man” on the moon first, when it clearly should have been a woman.
Yes, this is a real headline written by a real person.
