Was NASA’s Historic Leader James Webb a Bigot?

Was NASA’s Historic Leader James Webb a Bigot? He’s been vilified for years on the internet by some astronomers and physicists — but is it true?

Re: Was NASA’s Historic Leader James Webb a Bigot?

A bigot is someone that refuses to accept that they have lost an argument.  That is what it means in plain English.  Can you provide evidence that James Webb happened to be stubborn and illogical in this way?

Marxists of course have hijacked the word.  It is now used to criticise any white person that has a sense of self identity, that does not bow down to black colonisation of white European culture and accept them as 'brothers' (even as they are robbing your home, or stealing your wallet at knife point).  I have no sympathy for Marxists, or anti-white scoundrels that hide behind the civil rights movement.  They are the rot of western civilisation.  Scumbags that live to break civilisation down.

If James Webb refused to patronise those people, then I have a renewed respect for him.  I can respect a man that society calls a racist.  He is probably a patriot.  I could never respect a Marxist or champaign socialist.  If the far left hate James Webb, then it probably means he was a decent guy.  The more woke a person is, the more treacherous and disloyal they are.  The more respected a man if by the chattering left leaning classes, then the more thoroughly repulsive he is.  The more he is hated by those people, then the better he is.  That is a good rule by which to assess a man.  If the woke, treacherous and anti-white parasites don't hate him, then he probably wasn't worth knowing.  If they are attacking him, then he is worthy of having a telescope named after him.  Need I say more?

If we are going to get exercised about such things surely von Braun should be a priority!

Re: Was NASA’s Historic Leader James Webb a Bigot?

Why oh why do y’all have such an unhealthy fascination with skin color?

If you’d stop trying to distinguish the infinite ways in which all of y’all are different from each other, eventually you’d come to the conclusion that everyone is an individual who should be judged on their own merits and demerits.
