Racist and sexist? WaPo marks 50th anniversary of Apollo 11 moon landing by noting ‘mostly white, male’

The quote, “History is written by the victors,” is attributed to Winston Churchill and there is no doubt that when it comes to the media, liberals won that battle long ago.

Retro-vision progressives are running roughshod over the pages of American history, and are not content with denigrating the great men who founded what has proven to be the most free and prosperous nation in the history of the world.

To put an end to the idea of American exceptionalism once and for all, our historical achievements must also be targeted — events such as landing on the moon.

With the 50th anniversary of astronauts Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin walking on the moon for the first time, this feat of American ingenuity is being reduced to an act of racism by the Washington Post.

“The culture that put men on the moon was intense, fun, family-unfriendly, and mostly white and male,” read the caption of a tweet highlighting an article on the moon landing.

What a shameful way to disgrace the monumental achievement by Armstrong and Aldrin, making it about the color of their skin.

Men who were celebrated as heroes in 1969, along with astronaut Michael Collins, but in post-Obama America, it has been deemed politically correct to declare open season on white males.

Armstrong’s famous words, spoken on July 20, 1969, as he stepped onto the lunar surface, resonated: “That’s one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind.”

But to hear liberals tell the tale, it’s almost as if he said one small step for the white man.

With a presidential election looming and the Democratic Party going all in on identity politics, the Post is doing its part to show how racist and sexist the United States has always been.

How can we as a nation possibly elect a white man — see Donald Trump — given the circumstances?

Of course, the hypocrisy here is that newspapers like the Washington Post aren’t very introspective when it comes to matters of race, as social media users noted:

The newspaper may have gotten away with running the despicable piece, after all, they alone control content, but social media users made sure there was a price paid for that decision.

Here’ s a sampling of responses from Twitter:
