DC news outlet WTOP deleted a factually accurate article on American-German rocket scientist Wernher von Braun's contribution to the Apollo 11 moon landing and other US space programs because it didn't focus enough on him once being a Nazi.

Look and marvel at the stupidity of this tweet thread WTOP sent out on Tuesday:



You can still read an archive of the article here.



It said near the beginning that von Braun served under the Nazis before serving America (he also converted to Christianity):
As a child growing up in Germany in the 1920s Wernher von Braun had a fascination with space exploration and rocketry. In 1932 he began work on Germany’s liquid-fuel rockets that pounded western Europe in World War II.

“The Treaty of Versailles, which banned German military activity after World War I did not account for rocketry. So the Nazi regime exploited that loophole to develop a robust rocketry program and von Braun was instrumental in helping them achieve those successes,” said John Bisney, co-author of “Picturing Apollo, Rare Views and Undiscovered Moments.”

At the close of World War II, von Braun and his rocket team surrendered into the welcoming arms of the United States, which immediately put them to work in America’s space race against the Soviet Union.

“He was at the top of the allies list of people they really wanted to bring here to help with United States technology development. As a result of von Braun and his team coming to the United States … they laid the foundation for the rocket program that led us to the Apollo program and to the moon,” said Bisney.
They changed that first paragraph to read:
As a child growing up in Germany in the 1920s, Wernher von Braun had a fascination with space exploration and rocketry. In 1932 he began work on Germany’s liquid-fuel rockets that pounded western Europe in World War II. He went on to become a member of the Nazi Party.
They then decided to delete it altogether.

Ilhan Omar is as American as apple pie (and more American than you or I!) but Wernher von Braun is nothing but a Nazi.





To bring about our glorious prog-globalist future, all history must be sanitized or thrown down the memory hole altogether if it doesn't advance the narrative.











Perhaps WTOP can replace the story with one promoting the myth of Hidden Figures.
