Moon Landing Movie Omits Planting American Flag

Most patriotic Americans riled at witnessing million dollar athletes take a knee or raise a clenched fist at the playing of our National Anthem.


Now imagine depicting one of America’s proudest moments within our history (and within humankind) namely Astronaut Neil Armstrong landing on the moon and planting “Old Glory” on its surface, purposely being obliterated because of political correctness.

Worst yet is the arrogance and patronizing overture felt coming from Ryan Gosling — an overrated self-aggrandizing actor  — as he attempts to justify the rewriting of America’s history in the movie “First Man” which is meant to recount the heroic journey to the moon.

Gosling is making the promotional rounds, arguing that the first voyage to the moon was a “human achievement” that didn’t just represent an American accomplishment, and then attempted to put the seal-of-approval from Armstrong, who died in 2012, saying:

“I think this was widely regarded in the end as a human achievement [and] that’s how we chose to view it,” Gosling. “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.”

Adding, “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.”

Then Gosling, perhaps sensing an American backlash in the making, to the film jokingly adds, “I’m Canadian, so might have cognitive bias.” The film’s director, Damien Chazelle, Who previously worked with Gosling on the Oscar-winning La La Land, is French-Canadian.

In his autobiography, Armstrong had said, “My job was to get the flag there. I was less concerned about whether that was the right artifact to place. I let other, wiser minds than mine make those kinds of decisions.”

For those who still can recall that moment in 1969, when Armstrong stepped down from his landing craft on to the surface of the moon, that iconic image flashing across black and white TV sets all across the world, then stepping off the last rung of the ladder onto the lunar soil, exclaiming “That’s one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind.” Days later before the long voyage home, he planted the “Stars and Strips.”


Those images are as important to that generation of Americans, as President Reagan standing in front of Berlin’s Brandenburg Gate and demanding that Soviet President Mikhail Gorbachev “tear down this wall,” or President Bush standing on a mound of rubble on September 14th 2001, within the bowels of what was once the World Trade Center, speaking through a Bullhorn shouting to first responders “I can hear you…the rest of the world hears you! And the people who knocked these buildings down will hear all of us soon.”

Guys like Gosling and Chazelle have little understanding of America or their heroes because America is unique. It is the only “Super Power” in the world, that isn’t interested in conquering other nations. However to purposely rewrite history by eliminating an indisputable and overwhelming piece of history, especially regarding a film positioned as a documentary, is the height of hypocrisy and deserves to be boycotted by every American proud of our achievements.

    No problem. I will just skip the movie. The almighty profit is often the guiding principle of many. Look at the movie that just came out with box office of way under $500 with Kevin Space. Let us do it again!

    America is a continent, the UNITED STATES is the corporation controlling commercial interest over the United States of America aka union states, so this flag and drama you speak of in this article is misleading to the actual facts, reporting should be fact based the biggest dilemma of our time is the mis-education of our history on this land. Patriotism, etc. is blasphemy and irrelevant, also the UNITED STATES is the biggest player of interest in conquering other nations of land in the pursuit of creating commerce and controlling interest in the hand of the United Nations as well as the military industrial complex. The real question is why don’t you right articles on how to correctly govern estate, trust, will, and testament, those 4 words; estate, trust, will, and testament still govern the world and all laws. Separate yourselves from the ens legis, all capital name, then become the paramount security interest holder of that ens legis name, start caring about the republic for which its stands, quit being so naive and patriotic start actually reading more so that you can come into the realization that we are in a matrix, it is not evil though there are rules to the game, if everyone knew where to find the rules, then how to comprehend, then finally how to apply these rules of commerce we would end suffering and restore the estates of the living by way of controlling the dead interest as in corpse, corporation, registered entity, you, who is you, I can take a rich mans money if his estate isn’t protected, I could also restore a desperate man or woman whom is in a destructive state of living, by way of the administrative process, Creditors vs. Debtors, Creditors and their bonds, in other words stop being naive to the deception of media and these so called journalist, the real news is documented daily through publications all business, public and private, just know where you stand, public or private, and have the proper identification. My identification says I am an actual american while the majority claim they are americans though the only identity they have says otherwise stating that you’re an United States Citizen, in which the constitution does not apply to you directly and you are actually a ward of the STATE and a employee of the Federal Government, civilly dead, no status and standing, read more, knowledge is the key all ignorance is doomed. I am law as you are too, wake up, and start acting in honor for once in your life.

    Americans have “planted the flag” in too many places with the idea of land ownership, not just a friendly gesture of being there. Witness the takeover of Indigenous lands. It would be extreme arrogance to assume ownership of that spot on the moon. Armstrong’s thinking was correct and should be honored. Good on the movie. We should also honor the complete selfless gesture of Colin Kaeparnak, highlighting racial injustice.

    I will never watch this documentary. It is sad when anyone disrespect our flag and what it stands for.
    God bless America…

    If those two made a movie about Iwo Jima they’d probably replace the Stars and Stripes with a U.N. flag. Disgusting.

    I damn sure wont go to watch it. The flag was part of the history. It was a race to the moon. And the USA was first. God bless the USA.

    You can count on me. Leftist “lunacy” at its worst!

    That settles it. I will not watch any move that has anything to do with Gosling ever again. Canadian or not, the flag planting was a big part of what we did. Of the 400,000 people who helped, what percent were American?

    Well here we go again with someone trying to rewrite history because it might offend someone . Anyone who was watching the landing knows that the flag was there to show an American achievement. Ryan, go back to Canada!

    Documentaries are supposed to factual, not some politically correct agenda driven opinion piece produced
    by another Michal Moore clone propagandist who can’t see past his own petty biases. If I ever see it at all it will be after it flops and makes it to the internet or late-night TV where I won’t be donating my cash to the bank accounts of either Damien Chazelle or Ryan Gosling.

    How DARE YOU to selfishly attempt to promote such a lopsided view of one of the most important events in HISTORY. I will NOT be seeing this movie based on your hypocrisy and lack of correctness in failure to portray the “history” of what actually happened on that most memorable event. I will assuredly advise my friends NOT to see it also and based upon your motives, they wouldn’t want to see it either. SHAME ON YOU!

    I will not go to see this movie. I go every week to my local AMC and have carried tastes. But I will not support something obviously anti American.

    I think the minds of this generation are so concerned about their personal feelings and uses for self that they forget about how or why they exist.

    Total B.S. by liberal Hollywood elites. They are so out of touch with regular Americans. Another film I will not watch.
