This is What Buzz Aldrin Thinks About Hollywood Leaving the American Flag Out of Armstrong Biopic

Published

on

Buzz Aldrin, the second man to step on the moon after Neil Armstrong, is no delicate snowflake.

In fact, he once literally punched a man in the face for questioning the moon landing.

If that doesn’t make you reconsider the conspiracy theory, I don’t know what will.

So when Aldrin, now 88, caught wind that Hollywood’s upcoming biopic on Neil Armstrong would be–astonishingly–leaving out the whole American flag aspect of the moon landing, he was less than thrilled.

I don’t know about you, but I personally still can’t even conceive how they could leave such a key aspect of the first moon landing out of the film. It’s like doing a movie on Rosa Parks and leaving out the bus, Benjamin Franklin and leaving out the kite, or Anne Frank and leaving out the diary.

Aldrin, apparently, was also stunned and, in the absence of Armstrong himself weighing in on the exclusion of the flag he famously saluted on the moon, took to Twitter (love that Buzz Aldrin has a Twitter account) to declare his allegiance to the flag and the nation it represents.

To drive the point home, one Twitter user also posted a picture of Buzz Aldrin wearing a t-shirt of an astronaut planting the American flag on the moon and American flag suspenders as he salutes a picture of himself saluting the flag on the moon, subsequently winning the internet for the day and making my entire week:

Well, there you have it, folks.

That’s what Aldrin thinks about this idiotic nonsense of leaving the flag out of the Armstrong biopic and I challenge anyone to top that.

Cable News Blasted for Conjuring Controversy in Columbus Police Shooting

This is just dirty.

The sad truth of the matter, when it comes to the mainstream media, is that they are more successful when we are more emotional. It’s a dirty trick of human biology:  The chemicals in our brain that allow us to feel joy, sorrow, humor, and fury are just similar enough to one another that we become addicted to them, one and all.  Feeling something stimulates our self-awareness, and we learn to crave it. So, when you tune into CNN and what they are saying angers you, they’re planting small hooks in your noggin, reeling you in to watch the commercials that pay all of their salaries. If you watch Fox, however, and you find yourself enthusiastically cheering after a host or guest has a mic drop moment, your brain again finds what it’s looking for, and here you are seeing your 14th Progressive commercial of the day. All of the big networks know this and actively participate in this salacious shamanism, and sometimes they cross the line. Liberal outlets HuffPost and AJ+ omitted key details or pushed false narratives in their videos about the fatal police shooting of a Black teenager in Columbus, Ohio on Tuesday. HuffPost failed to note the woman who was shot, Ma’Khia Bryant, pushed another female to the ground and lunged at another with a knife when police arrived at the scene. The misleading HuffPo video was accompanied by the following text, which appeared to paint the police as the villain. “Black girl killed by police,” the text read. “Police in Columbus, OH shot & killed a Black teen around the same time the verdict was read in the Derek Chauvin trial. Body-camera footage showed an officer firing several times at Ma’Khia Bryant before she collapsed to the ground. The video also showed a knife falling next to the…

Derek Chauvin on Suicide Watch, Away From General Population

Chauvin’s incarceration will certainly not be a pleasant one once he leaves isolation.

There is little doubt that Derek Chauvin is going to have a bad time in jail.  The former police officer was just convicted on several charges stemming from his involvement in the death of George Floyd, with one those charges being murder in the 3rd degree. Chauvin’s sentence won’t be known for some time, likely about 8 weeks, so there’s no telling just where he’ll wind up serving his time.  But ex-cops don’t fare all that well in certain prisons, and there will almost certainly be an incentive to tangle with the guy while he’s on the inside. For the time being, however, Chauvin is being kept separate from the general population, out of fear for his safety. Derek Chauvin has been pictured in his first mugshot taken at the maximum security prison in Minnesota where he’s on suicide watch after being found guilty on all three counts of murder and manslaughter in the death of George Floyd. The Minnesota Department of Corrections released the new booking photo on Wednesday morning as Chauvin woke up from his first night at MCF-Oak Park Heights. The 45-year-old dressed in an orange jumpsuit appeared tired and puffy-eyed with a frown and his hair in disarray. The mugshot was soon making the rounds online. https://twitter.com/ABC/status/1384867831792209921?s=20 Chauvin is expected to file an appeal in the coming weeks, possibly on the grounds that he could not have possibly received a fair trial with the statements being made in public by politicians such as Maxine Waters of California.
