Why is Ted Kennedy a murderer?
Hillbuzz ^ | August 27, 2009 | Hillary Democrats in Boystown

Posted on 08/29/2009 7:27:25 AM PDT by Vincent Jappi

There are some of you out there who don’t understand why we’ve detested Senator Edward Moore Kennedy since childhood — even though we grew up in Democratic households, where our families always voted the party line, and pictures of Jack and Jackie, Franklin and Eleanor, and Bill and Hillary hung proudly on our walls (Jimmy Carter was always a known anti-semite embarrassment to us, whose single term was best forgotten).

But, whenever Ted Kennedy’s name was said by anyone on television, or Heaven forbid someone in the house, the room would grow quiet and more than one of the older women would literally spit on the floor. Then, the expletives would roll out.

Please read this article by Carl Cannon to understand WHY even staunch Democratic families detested Ted Kennedy and maintain he was a wealthy murderer whose family helped him get away with a horrible, unimaginable crime.

Few of you seem to understand exactly what Ted Kennedy DELIBERATELY did that night in 1969 — which constitutes murder, and not accidental or negligent homicide or manslaughter.

A small part of that night in 1969 can be chalked up to indiscretion and stupidity: Kennedy leaving the party with Mary Joe Kopechne, which was wrong for both of them to do, since Kennedy was married and Kopechne knew it. Kopechne should have had sense enough not to get into a car with a notorious drunk whom she’d observed drinking heavily that night — and a married drunk to boot. Even driving off the bridge doesn’t warrant our scorn…because if it was a drunken accident, it’s still not murder, just a continuation of the stupidity engaged in, primarily by Kennedy but by Kopechne as well, the entire night.

No, the murder happened when Kennedy climbed out of the car but knowingly allowed Kopechne to stay locked inside, to drown in the brackish water of the tidal canal.

The murder happened when Kennedy returned to the party, for more ass-slapping good times, and DELIBERATLY told the men there not to tell any of Kopechne’s friends she was underwater in his car…because he claimed he didn’t want anyone to be injured in a rescue attempt.

The thing is, if a rescue attempt had been mounted, Kopechne who was struggling for life in an air pocket for as much as 2 hours, might have been saved.

Kennedy decided Kopechne didn’t need a rescue attempt.

Kopechne didn’t need to be saved.

He made that decision, sobered up by a swim in the cold water, and realized it was better for him politically that she was dead, instead of alive to tell the tale…or tales, considering this was a Kennedy we’re talking about, Kopechne could have had a lot to tell.

That’s murder in our book.

We don’t believe there are any laws that REQUIRE bystanders or witnesses to dive into the cold water and try to rescue someone, especially if they believe they too could be injured. We also don’t know if there are laws that require you to call the police and report an accident where you believe someone could be dead or dying. Is that a requirement? Or, can you just go about your day and return to a party without letting anyone know a young woman could be drowning in an Oldsmobile at that very moment?

What Ted Kennedy did was PREVENT Kopechne’s friends from mounting a rescue attempt…from ringing the alarm bells and having all of Chappaquiddick come running to try to save that young woman’s life. Kennedy, and his lackeys, CHOSE to wait until the morning when Kopechne would surely be dead before alerting the authorities.

How any of those men were able to look at themselves in the mirror these last 40 years is beyond us.

Read the article by Cannon. Learn more about what Ted Kennedy did that night. And understand why, for our entire lives, sweet little old ladies who never said boo to anyone would spit on the ground and swear up a storm whenever this murderer’s name was mentioned in their company.

Ted is in hell, but Michael’s status is less certain. So maybe they haven’t met after all.

The DUmmies are canonizing Kennedy as FReepers remind themselves that this man was a monster.

I wonder what Ted and Michael Jackson are chatting about this morning.

Ted's complaining about the air conditioning.

"A flawed man, who started unimpressively in life -- the college problems, the silver-spoon boy senator, everything involved with Chappaquiddick -- but redeemed himself, in the eyes of all but the committed haters, with his bravery and perseverance and commitment to the long haul," Fallows wrote."

Kennedy COULD NOT "redeem" himself. What he did on Chappaquiddick was, at the very least, voluntary manslaughter or negligent homicide. The idea that somehow, Kennedy's life "after" Chappaquiddick somehow excused him from facing legal justice is absurd.

Oh, there’s more. A lot more:

After Sen. TED KENNEDY personally led a newly elected post-WATERGATE Democrat U.S. Congress into cutting off all funding for the then Free South Vietnamese to fight for their own FREEDOM with during the Vietnam War, and then all our Medical Aid for them to treat their resulting war casualties with as well, came for many poor S.E. Asian souls a most horrid:

Pictures of a vietnamese Re-Edcuation (SLAVE LABOR) Camp

.

And it’s all happening again right here in a still FREE America, in a new time of war in a new century with our own FREEDOM now directly at stake right here at home..!!!

.

NEVER ever FORGET this.

Kennedy’s Oldsmobile and Nagin’s school busses proving for all time that politics trumps the saving of lives.

Dems disdain those whom they enslave on the plantation.

Everything that he did after Chappaquiddick was even worse. Mary Jo was one person. Kennedy’s career was about murdering our Republic and enslaving all its citizens. As awful as Chappaquiddick was it was one episode. The next 40 years was day in and day out 24/7 crime against the Constitution and the American people.

Read the book “Senatorial Privilege”.

It goes into the details. It is incredible. He was in Edgartown, 10 hours after the crash, for the purpose of establishing an alibi. But his friends refused to go along with it.

The fat slob never took responsibility for what he did. Never.

Having personally toured Allied Military Operations all over a then FREE South Vietnam at the very beginning of the Vietnam War in 1965...

Sen. TED KENNEDY just knew better than to cutoff this FREEDOM’s just fight years later:

It seems the senator was just a “cowardly Lion,” after all.

I read it. The author more or less tells the reader that Dead Ted killed Kopechne but he was a likable guy. Um...ok. So murderers can be likable. We knew that. It doesn’t excuse their cold-blooded acts.

Hmmm...let's see now...a serial,unrepentant child molester ("of *course* I sleep with young boys.It's an act of love") who came to follow the greatest of *all* child molesters (mohammed).

I can assure you that they've met.

Can anyone tell me why there wasn't an autopsy performed on Mary Jo's body? I have heard from some very credible people I know in Mass., that she was pregnant with his child.

Could be just a rumor, but why wasn't an autopsy preformed?

5.56mm

If Ted Kennedy drove a Volkswagen, he'd be President today

It floats.

The way our body is built, we'd be surprised if it didn't. The sheet of flat steel that goes underneath every Volkswagen keeps out water, as well as dirt and salt and other nasty things that can eat away at the underside of a car. So it's watertight at the bottom. And everybody knows it's easier to shut the door on a Volkswagen after you've rolled down the window a little.

That proves it's practically airtight on top. If it was a boat, we could call it the Water Bug. But it's not a boat, it's a car.

And, like Mary Jo Kopechne, it's only 99 and 44/100 percent pure. So it won't stay afloat forever. Just long enough. Poor Teddy. If he'd been smart enough to buy a Volkswagen, he never would have gotten into hot water.

The hands of Ted were red because of the babies whose blood he shed. Tragic, and we shall all give an account of our life. If Ted had repented and found Christ as His Lord and Savior, and followed him, it would have been a different story, and the West would have scorned him at his death like as they did with men like Falwell.
