Skip to comments.The Culture of Conspiracy [JFK assassination and media whitewashing/deflection of commie angle]
Posted on 11/22/2008 6:02:05 AM PST by ETL
This week is the anniversary of the tragic day in 1963 [11/22/63, 35 years ago today] when John F. Kennedy was assassinated on the streets of Dallas. Looking back, we can see that Kennedy's death marked a turning point, when the political consensus of the time gave way to the confrontational politics that we associate with the 1960s. The upheavals that followed -- along with the bitter partisanship that disfigured political life in the last third of the century, and whose echoes we still hear today -- can be traced back to that day in Dallas.
The terrorist attack of Sept. 11, 2001, is the only other event in the modern era that compares with the Kennedy assassination in terms of its shattering impact on public opinion. And there are parallels: The 9/11 attacks, like the Kennedy case, stimulated conspiracy theories claiming that either the U.S. government knew what was coming, or that somehow America itself was responsible.

oops, almost forgot...
Thank you. First I heard of him at a gun range.
Calling a non conspiracy person a nutter - CHECK!
Believe like sheep the official version - CHECK!
I’ve read all the “material” (written by nuts and profiteers) - CHECK!
“Brighten Up” one last shot - CHECK!
Watch the first video in post 42.
There was no “pristine” bullet, you’ve bought a LIE, the bullet was totally consistent with the damage done.
The single bullet that hit both men did just what a bullet does from a 6th floor window on the trajectory it followed, there was nothing magic about it.
See the frame by frame computer model with Kennedy and Connelly positioned exactly where they were using the Zapruder film.
You have been hoodwinked, you’ve been bamboozled.
I strongly suspect the Russians had a hand in both the phony conspiracy theories and the actual acts themselves.
Another video for you.
The Russians had the LEAST motive to kill Kennedy, they knew he was a lightweight and that’s why they put the missiles in Cuba and took Kennedy to the cleaners in the negotiations. The re-writing of Kennedy backing down the Russians was a joke, they ran circles around him and were happy to have such an inexperienced rube in the White House.
Oswald killed Kennedy, all the evidence points to him, modern forensics prove the shots could only come from Oswald.
The most investigated crime in the human history and STILL all the evidence points to Oswald.
2 people can’t keep a secret but somehow the “conspiracy” is still intact, never mind that all the conspiracy theories contradict each other.
I don’t know who killed JFK, but I doubt there are few, if any, that watched everything unfold on television the day it happened, who believe Oswald was in it alone. I remember thinking Oswald’s comment to the media about being a patsy sounded legitimate, but other comments he made brought everything he said into question.
I remember my family discussing Jack Ruby’s shooting of LHO. We believed it was a hit the moment it happened, and had nothing to do with Ruby’s explanation later of why he did it, of course.
So much evidence was destroyed at the time that I doubt we’ll ever know the truth in this life. I remember us saying at the time that had to be deliberate because no one could, or would, be that incompetent in investigating an assassination of a POTUS.
There is a 'Pristine Bullet'. If I've seen it once I've seen it a hundred times.
The 'Pristine Bullet' was found laying along the side of Gov Connelly on his gurney while he was in the hospital corridor.
You have a case of poor reading comprehension. Answer the question.
You’re WRONG, you’re 100 times WRONG.
The only pristine bullet found laying along Connellly on his gurney was in the MOVIE JFK!!
Here is a picture of the “pristine” bullet from an angle they don’t show you, THIS is the “pristine bullet”, the same one they tell you is “pristine”.
You’re a 11-22 truther which has the same characteristics as the 9-11 truthers. You pick a suspect and have no idea what happened.
Here’s the proof you have no idea what you’re writiing about.
Explain in full detail, tragectories, ballistics, ETC as to how Kennedy was killed and Connelly wounded. You can’t do it because you lied to yourself. You don’t have a clue but you blame others when confronted by FACTS.
Have a nice day.
Not one of these 11-22 truthers can explain anything. They’re like roaches when you turn on a light.
Just think, if Oswald had lived, he could have held a campaign kickoff party for Barack Obama!
It’s the same phenomenon with Obama voters, they’ll just dismiss evidence out of hand.
I’d like to think people here at Free Republic would be a little more critical and not buy the pablum shopped by mostly hard left wingers who are trying to tell us a conspiracy, not an admitted Marxist killed Kennedy.
If Reagan had died, I bet there would have been thousands of conspiracy theories about Chapman too, the Secret Service did it, Chapman was an MK-Ultra killer, etc. Look at the RFK assasination, same tight quarters as Reagan, nuts think THAT was a conspiracy too, Sirhan Sirhan, a PALESTINIAN terrorist killed RFK, how many people know he was PALESTINAIN???? Hmmm, wonder why they don’t mention that, it doesn’t fit in with the “Media Matrix” left wing view of the world.
9/11 Truthers, don’t get me started, they should all kill themselves, they’re wasting valuable oxygen.
You’re another in denial. You have no idea what happened or how. You picked your conclusion and sticking to it no matter what anyone says.
Showing you facts and photographs is a waste of time.
That’s the scary part. 52% of the nation voted for a marxist Kenyan and there’s so many 9-11 and 11-22 truthers right here on FR.
How would you like to be in the same room as obama introduces William Ayers to Caroline Kennedy? I’d love to see the reaction.
The movie “Idiocracy” didn’t have to take place five hundred years in the future.
I remember a story by the Reader's Digest which tied Oswald's activities as a Marine in Japan (IIORC) with the shooting down of Francis Gary Powers UT over Russia.
The Left has cunningly tried to finesse away Oswald's obvious commie connections by saying he was a CIA double agent. I don't buy that.
I saw an interesting JFK documentary this week.
A world renown sharpshooter examined the evidence regarding the assassination and came to some interesting conclusions.
First of all a car load of paid actors were on the exact spot where the fatal shot was fired. They were in an exact replica of the car. Each one was sitting in the exact position pictured in the Magruder film’s last frame.
The sharpshooter examined the potential shot from every angle suggested by conspiracy buffs. He had no clear shot from any angle, except the grassy knoll.
But if he took the shot from the grassy knoll it would have penetated Kennedy’s head and exited into Mrs. Kennedy.
They also went out into the desert and recreated a shot from each direction wthi skull replicas used by the military to assess damage for soldiers.
The shot from the grassy knoll blew of the opposite side of the head. The shot from the depository shattered the skull in a near identcal way same way as the fatal shot in the Magruder film.
For me, it put to rest any doubts about a single shooter theory.
