Buzz Aldrin, 88, just threw down the gauntlet with his opinion on “First Man,” a biopic about the first man to set foot on the moon-Neil Armstrong-but with no American flag in sight. From the iconic flag planting on the moon to a patch on the spacesuit costumes, Old Glory was glaringly absent from what is a human achievement by the US of A writ large. Aldrin took to Twitter to share photos of the historic moment that didn’t fit the Hollywood script: One of the flag planting hashtagged ProudToBeAnAmerican and the next photo a picture of himself saluting it. Hollywood’s anti-American attitude knows no bounds. Can you say “boycott”?
Here’s more from The Daily Wire…
One time a “moon landing denier” got in Buzz Aldrin’s face. So Aldrin, 72 years old at the time, punched the guy right in the jaw with a fierce right cross.
Aldrin, the second man to walk on the moon, is not a guy you want to mess around with, even at 88! And when he has an opinion, hoo boy you better believe he voices it.
Over the weekend, the astronaut weighed in on the new movie “First Man,” a biopic about the first man to step on the moon, Neil Armstrong. The movie stars actor Ryan Gosling — but not the American flag. The moment when the U.S. flag was planted on the moon was omitted from the movie because, as Gosling said, “I think this was widely regarded in the end as a human achievement [and] that’s how we chose to view it.”
On Sunday, Aldrin tweeted a picture of the flag planted on the moon during the landing in 1969.
