Washington DC and The Holy Land>“First Man”: Finally! A movie glorifying white males
Prison Bitch 10:08 AM 02-11-2019
Indescribable movie. Hard to put into a single message post. It’s remarkable seeing a pro-white male message from Hollyweird. It’s extremely patriotic too. I can’t see the YouTube embed feature since I don’t have an account but here’s the 3-min launch scene of Apollo 11, sending Neil into human history.

Did you know polls showed black America opposed the space program? Did you know libshits went down to Canaveral to protest the “injustices” of the NASA budgets? And a month later cried and moaned about it even at Woodstock too?

No, I'm referring to the zillions of movies with white male heroes.

The point is: this is a white male story, mentioning black opposition. Just as it was at the time. No bullshitting the viewer.

That's the point? So there was black opposition at the time, and it's historically accurate?

And? That's what's so great about the movie? I haven't seen it yet, but I would guess that is a pretty minor part of the whole story.

I would imagine the movie is about Apollo 11, not about race.

BTW, my parents had some friends who were in the Peace Corps in Ghana at the time. They said it was really a big deal over there. (Not sure if you're down on black people in general, or only American black people).

Moochie Obummer hosted the stars of the fiction movie for a private screening. How great would it have been had I been there to chronicle each and every historical lie as it occurs in Hidden????

Either way, my only thought was that you're a fucking moron. Thanks for helping me out with that.

There is a conversation to be had by reminding people that history documents that the fault lines for activist big government doesn't always have the fault lines you think. Further, there is a conversation to be had reminding people how persistent some complaints can be regardless of how open and willing, even eager you are to address them.

For instance, the Apollo Program is currently being touted as a sunny painless example of American derring-do and collective will, when the assessment at the time was much more emotional, turbulent and pessimistic. That's not merely in terms of whether or not we would succeed, but also in the sense that we were wasting valuable finite resources puffing our chest [and military prowess, don't forget] against phantom foes while oppressed peoples suffered from neglect.

Some arguments will persist throughout eras and administrations, and its important from time to time to keep perspective on which ones rightfully persisted and which ones were a product of contemporary demagoguery.

I'm starting to get the impression that PB just found out about this. It's been pretty well documented in movies, documentaries, etc. HBO had a great multi-part series a few years ago.

He's right---MLK never said one thing about the moon landing.

That makes sense.

Do you agree with PB that presenting that historical fact makes this movie some sort of breakthrough?

And?
Did you know about this? It’s ok to admit if you didn’t, I highly doubt any schoolteacher mentioned it. And the media sure’s hell won’t.

Once they pulled it off, the opposition had so much egg splattered on their faces they sorta went into shameful hiding. Including MLKs right hand man who bitched about it for years.

I believe that for you, it isn’t. You should see it and make your own judgments tho.

I believe you. The worldwide audience was like 500-1000M folks seeing Neil descend that ladder.

I’m stating facts about the space achievement: blacks consistently opposed it in polls. If you don’t have any comment about that fact, that’s fine too.

I doubt I heard about it at the time. I was too young.

But I have heard it said many times over the years, "we should be spending the money here on Earth" instead of the space program, or words to that effect, often by black public figures.

I'm surprised you somehow managed to shit out an only thought.

That's progress.
