NY Times Applies Today’s Lefty Identity Politics To Space Race

And declares the Soviet Union the winner.

“The Cold War was fought as much on an ideological front as a military one, and the Soviet Union often emphasized the sexism and racism of its capitalist opponents — particularly the segregated United States. And the space race was a prime opportunity to signal the U.S.S.R.’s commitment to equality. After putting the first man in space in 1961, the Soviets went on to send the first woman, the first Asian man, and the first black man into orbit — all years before the Americans would follow suit.”

Absolutely sickening, but to be expected from hate filled ideological perverts.

A US listening post in Turkey recorded the voice of a Soviet Cosmonaut, cursing the people who sent him into space in a shoddy capsule, as it is crashing back to Earth with parachutes that do not work.

But the Soviets win because diversity!

Nothing like spouting 60s era Soviet Cold War propaganda as if the Russians occupied the moral high ground back then.

Hilarious stuff.
