The New York Times is a pile of garbage. The people who work there should be shamed daily for what they do there.
In their continuing effort to ruin the 50th Anniversary of the moon landing, they published more woke garbage on the space race.
America may have put the first man on the moon, but the Soviet Union sent the first woman, the first Asian man, and the first black man into orbit — all years before the U.S. would follow suit https://t.co/DrTZYxvbD7

See, it’s not who went to the moon, it’s who had the most women in space that what was really mattered.
But it is more disgusting than that.
The Soviet Union was heavily built on the backs of slave labor from oppressed farmers to political prisoners. It was a nation where the average citizen lived in grinding poverty and under the constant fear of arrest.
The Soviets launched the first woman into space, after systematically murdering some 20 million of their own citizens for the crime of having one cow more than their neighbor.
Remember that Water Duranty, the Moscow bureau chief for The New York Times was awarded the Pulitzer Prize in 1932 for covering up the Holodomor, in which the Soviets deliberately starved to death millions of Ukrainians.
The Soviet army would take all the food the farmers grew. All of it.
If any Ukrainian citizen was caught trying to glean the fields, trying to pick up a handful of grain off the dirt to eat, they and their family would be shot.
The Soviets denied this and Duranty willingly published only the official government statements. For this, he was the pride and joy of The New York Times.
Clearly, the ghost of Walter Duranty is still inhabiting The New York Times building, being part of a culture that covers up every crime against humanity that the Soviets committed because of some superficial example of fairness.
I wonder if the praise heaped upon the Soviets for launching the first woman into space by The New York Times is any comfort to the families of the political prisoners worked to death in Siberia.
Welcome to woke. It doesn’t matter how many people have to suffer and die under the boot heel of tyranny, as long as there is gender parity in a handful of state-sponsored accomplishments.

What also gets left out, is that the Soviets beat us into space by ignoring basic safety rules. They lost several hundred people in their space program by the time they launched the first man into orbit..
Wow, that’s some serious Soviet-style journalistic propaganda, right there. Alas, today’s journos are ignorant of history.
You may be right. Or they may be perfectly well aware that they are lying.
As the saying goes, “never attribute to malice that which can be adequately explained as stupidity”. Emphasis on adequately.
My recollection is a bit spotty after all I was 12 at the time. As I recall, the male cosmonauts were test pilots with similar requirements as our astronauts. The female cosmonauts were primarily athletes, and strictly for propaganda purposes. Ms. Tereshkova flight appeared to be of the “Spam in the can” type. I.e strictly a passenger with everything controlled by mission control.
I just discovered (thanks Wikipedia) that Tereshkova and the other candidates were all skydivers, that was one of the criteria. This makes sense, it’s a good way to get close to test pilot skills if you’re dealing with a group that doesn’t include any military pilots.

Oh, they put the first Asian man in space? But Russians are Asians… because it’s in Asia…
