You’ve no doubt heard about the controversy surrounding the Neil Armstrong movie. The filmmakers are claiming it’s not fair to leave out all the other countries who contributed in no way whatsoever.
Everyone should get a participation trophy for historic event, not just us awful ‘Muricans with our innovations and excellence. That’s why the film won’t show Neil planting Old Glory on the moon.
Well, it would appear Dr. Buzz Aldrin just shot back at those Tinseltown douchenozzles.
Buzz Aldrin appeared to criticize Neil Armstrong biopic First Man for leaving out the planting of the American flag on the Moon.
The 88-year-old, who was the second man to set foot on the Moon, on Sunday tweeted a picture of the flag planted after their landing in 1969.
He captioned the photo: ‘Proud to be an American.’ Aldrin also re-tweeted a photo of him saluting next to the same picture.
It is an apparent dig at Oscar-winning director Damian Chazelle’s controversial decision not to include the planting of the flag at the end of his critically acclaimed movie.
Here’s that tweet, in all its glory.

Well, if you had any doubts as to which Buzz stands on, wonder no more. He’s an unabashed flag-waving American from America. As demonstrated by his glorious one-finger salute in tweet form.
Neil Armstrong wasn’t much for being a public figure, so its easy to put words in his mouth. Buzz Aldrin, on the other hand, has no problem telling it like it is. Or putting fist to face when detractors be getting out of line.
Make no mistake, the left is trying to rewrite history before our very eyes. There could very well be a generation in the future who believes the moon landing was a utopian Kumbaya moment, instead of an American victory over our commie foes to the east.
It’s good to know we still have people like Dr. Aldrin and Chuck Yeager to put those anti-American dickweeds in their place.
