Chuck Yeager Corrects Hollywood on Neil Armstrong Claims
If you haven't already heard, there's a Neil Armstrong biopic coming down the pipeline. In this movie-film, the makers deliberately kept out the bit about Armstrong whipping out the stars and stripes and posting them up in the Sea of Tranquility for all moon men to see.
Because, in their view, credit for the moon landing belongs to everyone, not just 'Muricans. Also, according to them, Neil was pretty meh on being an American from America. See for yourself:
“I think this was widely regarded in the end as a human achievement [and] that’s how we chose to view it. 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. He was reminding everyone that he was just the tip of the iceberg – and that’s not just to be humble, that’s also true. So I don’t think that Neil viewed himself as an American hero. From my interviews with his family and people that knew him, it was quite the opposite. And we wanted the film to reflect Neil.”
People started asking sound-barrier-breaking OG himself, General Chuck Yeager. He was quick to call bullhickey on the whole thing.

Thank you, Chuck. As always, despite the left's best efforts, the truth manages to come out.
These lefties would have you believe the moon landing was a joint effort by all of humanity. That "United States" wasn't printed in big letters on the first stage of the Saturn V rocket. Or that we called the journey to the moon the "Space Race." As in against the Soviets.
The space race was less of a global kumbaya drum circle, more of a peen-measuring contest against our slav-squatting neighbors to the east. Which we won, by the way.
The left is attempting to rewrite history through entertainment. I guess the sight of Old Glory on the moon is too triggering for their sensitive eyes. God forbid they make a movie about an event in history and have it be accurate. Pathetic.
Speaking of triggering movies:
