One of the first two humans to land on the moon took multiple swipes at Hollywood on Sunday night after reports surfaced that a movie about man’s greatest achievement will omit perhaps the proudest accomplishment in American history.
Buzz Aldrin, Lunar Module pilot of Apollo 11, Tweeted photos of himself and Neil Armstrong planting an American flag on the moon, captioning the Tweet with several hashtags.
“proudtobeanAmerican,” he said, along with “#freedom,” “#honor,” “#onenation” and “#Apollo11.”

Aldrin Tweeted the image in the midst of outrage among many Americans regarding the decision to omit the flag-planting on the moon from the upcoming film “First Man,” starring Canadian actor Ryan Gosling.
Gosling defended the decision, saying that the moon landing “transcended countries and borders.”
Aldrin does not seem to agree. He also posted photos of himself wearing a shirt that depicts the flag planting Saturday.
Always fun to visit my friends @KellySlater, John Moore & Co at their Outerknown clothing line party. Is it time for a space attire line yet?! 🚀😎 #spacesuitsaretrendy #roadtoapollo50th #5decadesofapollo pic.twitter.com/I34t42hbxf

The historical fact of the matter is that American went to the moon. American engineers, scientists and astronauts. Nothing about the American moon landing “transcended borders.” To strip the moon landing of its nationalistic historical context is foolish. One of the main objectives of the mission was to beat the Soviet Union to the moon.
But American pride is unacceptable in Hollywood. It’s considered uncouth. After all, the average American is the scourge of the earth to these people.
Gosling further defended the decision.
“I think this was widely regarded in the end as a human achievement [and] that’s how we chose to view it,” he said. “I also think Neil was extremely humble, as were many of these astronauts, and time and time again he deferred the focus from himself to the 400,000 people who made the mission possible.”
The only reasonable response from American consumers is to boycott this anti-American crap. There are plenty of interesting – and historically accurate – documentaries about the moon landing.
Perhaps watch one of those instead.

Donald Trump Quits ‘Dismal’ Screen Actor’s Guild Following Threats: ‘You Have Done Nothing for Me’
Trump blasted this ineffective union before quitting.
Former president Donald Trump has issued a letter to the Screen Actor’s Guild (SAG) resigning from the union effective immediately after the SAG announced they were considering expulsion.
“I write to you today regarding the so-called Disciplinary Committee hearing aimed at revoking my union membership. Who cares!” Trump wrote in the letter addressed to SAG president Gabrielle Carteris.
“While I’m not familiar with your work, I’m very proud of my work on movies such as Home Alone 2, Zoolander and Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps, and television shows including The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, Saturday Night Live, and of course, one of the most successful shows in television history, The Apprentice – just to name a few!” he continued.
“I’ve also greatly helped the cable television news business (said to be a dying platform with not much time left until I got involved in politics), and created thousands of jobs at networks such as MSDNC and Fake News CNN, among many others,” Trump added.
This is when Trump started maligning the SAG by pointing out their miserable record as a union, which is being sued by its own membership for failing to provide adequate healthcare benefits.
He wrote: “Your organization has done little for its members, and nothing for me – besides collecting dues and promoting dangerous un-American policies and ideas – as evident by your massive unemployment rates and lawsuits from celebrated actors, who even recorded a video asking, ‘Why isn’t the union fighting for me?'”
“These, however, are policy failures. Your disciplinary failures are even more egregious. I no longer wish to be associated with your union. As such, this letter is to inform you of my immediate resignation,” Trump added.

Big League Politics has reported on the film industry’s shame over having promoted Trump for so many years, helping Trump build the notoriety among the American public that allowed him to become the 45th president:
The West Hollywood City Council voted unanimously on a resolution to remove President Donald J. Trump’s star from the Hollywood Walk of Fame yesterday.
“West Hollywood City council unanimously passes resolution asking the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce to remove the Donald Trump star on Hollywood Walk of Fame,” said West Hollywood Mayor John Duran on Twitter.
The Hollywood Chamber of Commerce will have to approve Trump’s star removal for it to be officially bar.
“The Hollywood Walk of Fame is a registered historic landmark. Once a star has been added to the Walk, it is considered a part of the historic fabric of the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Because of this, we have never removed a star from the Walk,” said Leron Gubler, the Chamber’s president and CEO.
Among the stars that will certainly not be removed from Walk of Fame are those belonging to accused pedophile Kevin Spacey, and convicted rapist Bill Cosby.
Apparently, as long as one apologizes, Hollywood has no problem with alleged pedophilia.
Trump couldn’t have become president, changed the country forevermore, and exposed the Left’s treacherous agenda in the eyes of tens of millions of Americans without the help of the entertainment industry. They have now outlived their usefulness, but the ironic role they have played in promoting America’s revival will not be forgotten.
