The truth and history aren't casualties. They're being rescued by right and righteous thinking of the Left, to guide the masses so that they don't slip into improper tendencies .

Is the disgrace of the New Yorker and the NY Times complete yet? You still think that going to Harvard is all that?

I literally took one of her classes on the American Colonial Era.

It's currently the wokiest thing to re-write the history of American scientific achievement, utterly dominated by White Males, and overplay the role of a literal tiny handful of human calculators (who didn't even know why they were crunching the numbers assigned to them in the Rare and Expensive Mainframe Era) and/or an occasional lower level manager.

Women assigned to look at a section of the sky by a White Male and note any differences, are now being lauded as the discoverers, when the White Male was only firming up what they already suspected and came up with the entire process to A) Scan that region of the sky and B) Conditions that should be considered for follow up.

It's like a Male Investigator correctly suspects which bank a thief will rob next, hires a woman security guard to watch the door and windows, and people giving the security guard rather than the investigator credit.

A lot of it seems to be about indoctrinating gullible sub-30 year olds. They can't tell the difference between 1870 and 1970, when affirmative action, feminism, un-equal opportunity ( i.e. opportunity heavily weighted towards minorities and women) and discrimination against white males (albeit Asians as well) were already in full swing.

They have to convince young'uns that discrimination, female oppression and whip cracking honkies are some kind of perpetually fresh and fashionable issue that just cropped up, rather than a manifestly failed, delusional and unjust policy for nearly 50 years.

The 'Global Warming' stage props bits are kind of priceless, too.

NASA went to great lengths to recruit women and minorities, with the usual hall passes and gold stars to 'make it so'.

When the first big Cyclotron was built (still there I think above UC Berkeley Campus below the Lawrence Hall of Science) they employed housewives to scan the plates to look for atomic events because the housewives were simply better at pattern recognition. I guess we need a movie about how the housewives discovered the first fundamental particles and had the credit stolen by the nasty white physicists.

They already wrote the books on that.

No doubt "The American Pageant", America's most widely read (and constantly re-issued with more pap) HS History Textbook will contain a 10-page distortion on how great and wonderful the Housewives were and how the evil Male Astronomers stole their discovery.
