Washed up actor Tom Arnold tried to bash Rep Crenshaw over his courage. He told him he needed to “sack up” due to Crenshaw’s criticism of the NYT. Does Arnold not know who Crenshaw is?
Tom Arnold’s tweet questioning Rep Crenshaw’s courage on Twitter:
“I have a theory it’s sad sacks like you who get off pissing on everybody else’s good times by constantly pointing out stupid shit no one would’ve noticed or cared about and blaming leftists whatever the hell that is. What’s with all the whining all the time Top Gun? Sack up! #USA”
Arnold was responding to Crenshaw’s criticism of the NYT. The NYT bashed America’s space program efforts on the 50th anniversary of Apollo 11.
“Why is it that every time something has the potential to bring us together – in this case the 50th anniversary of Apollo 11 – leftists media outlets do their best to undermine the notion that Americans should be proud of their country?”
The NYT claimed that America fell behind the Soviet Union as they sent a black man, a woman, and an Asian person into space before we did.
“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.
In fact, the director of Soviet cosmonaut training wrote in his diary as early as 1961: “We cannot allow the first woman in space to be American. This would be an insult to the patriotic feelings of Soviet women.” Soviet premier Nikita Khrushchev agreed, and the search for candidates began.”
America was just trying to beat the Russians to space. It wasn’t about gender, it was about proving to the Russians that we had superior technology. Crenshaw has a valid point why bash the U.S. for this.
As for the “Sack-up” comment, Crenshaw was a Navy Seal that lost an eye serving his country. Arnold is just pathetic.
