Why does the media hyperventilate over Trump scolding The “Squad” while ignoring the rhetoric the Squad spews? Yes, we all know why the media suffers from Selective Outrage Syndrome
As NASA worked relentlessly to fulfill John F. Kennedy’s goal of landing a man on the moon by decade’s end, it turned to the nation’s engineers. Many of them were fresh out of school, running the gamut from mechanical to electrical engineers, because that’s mostly what was taught in universities, and almost exclusively to white men.
In archival Apollo 11 photos and footage, it’s a “Where’s Waldo?” exercise to spot a woman or person of color.
“I don’t want to be politically incorrect here, but the workforce, the culture, was white male. In the firing room, we had almost 500 people and we have one female, one black guy and one Hispanic,” says Ike Rigell, 96, chief engineer and deputy director of launch vehicle operations at the Kennedy Space Center in Central Florida. “That was the culture.”
As William Teach explains, such stupidity can only mean one thing EXTREME WOKENESS!
It was a different time, different era, so attempting to place modern day standards is silly. But, then, this is Wokeness.
If this is wokeness, then lots of folks need a nap, now!
Hollywood types love to take stands, and attach themselves to causes. Give them a goofy hashtag and watch them throw their shoulders out patting themselves on the back. They are WOKE baby! But, it seems celebs that take a stand for the wrong things, like patriotism, or gun rights, well, they do not get patted on the back. Instead here comes the fake outrage!
Just ask Chris Pratt
Chris Pratt is facing criticism over a T-shirt he was pictured wearing featuring a controversial symbol.
Since when did human rights become “controversial” That symbol embodies every liberty we enjoy in this nation.
The writing and snake combo on its own is depicted on the Gadsden flag; a symbol created by Christopher Gadsden, a Charleston-born brigadier general in the Continental Army.
It came to prominence during the Revolutionary War of the US by colonists who wanted independence from Great Britain.
If they stopped there, all would be good. The symbol is put into perspective quite nicely, but…………. they needed OUTRAGE!
Although it is one of the symbols and flags used by the U.S. Men’s Soccer Team, Metallica, as well as some libertarian groups, over the years the flag has been adopted by Far Right political groups like the Tea Party, as well as gun-toting supporters of the Second Amendment.
It has therefore become a symbol of more conservative and far right individuals and, according to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission of the US, it also is “sometimes interpreted to convey racially-tinged messages in some contexts.”
No one with a clue would label that flag as racist, or racially tinged, no one! So, cue the outrageously outraged outraged mob
But, the great news is that just about every response to this latest fake outrage is being lampooned, and destroyed on Twitter! Shows how far out of touch the professionally offended really are
Can say a whole lot more. Right AOC?
Good to see her get called out for her repeated vilification of ICE. Just imagine if the media did their job? Where are their panels of “outraged” talking heads linking AOC’s rhetoric about concentration camps to terror attacks by Antifa. Where are they? Well, likely working on some new anti-Trump narrative
