Skip to comments.Jackie O: MLK Was Terrible, FDR a Phony
Posted on 09/17/2011 6:05:50 AM PDT by VU4G10
The truth is out. The leading lady of liberal America between 1960 and her death in 1994, the standard setter of au courant women with her pillbox hats, bouffant hairstyle, and jet-set friends, the Guinevere to Camelots King Arthur himself, didnt much care for lesbians and Martin Luther King and other leftist world leaders.
The tapes of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis (shown as a young First Lady, left) are out, as The New American reported, and their first installment weeks ago revealed that she thought Vice President Lyndon Johnson, the most prodigious and successful election thief in American history, had a role in the killing of her husband.
The latest release contain the whisper-voiced First Ladys thought on everything and everyone, and she even reveals a weird fact about her husband. As Londons Daily Mail rightly put it, The fact this purring, Chanel-clad kitten had claws shouldnt have come as a shock....
....Kennedy apparently was very much a woman of her time and didnt care for relentlessly driven careerists who put work ahead of family. She thought that only violently liberal women in politics would vote for JFKs opponent in the 1960 Democratic primaries, Adlai Stevenson, because they were scared of sex.
She also said women dont belong with politics because were just not suited for it.
During the Cuban Missile Cuban Crisis, Mrs. Kennedy begged her husband not to send her away in the event of war, so devoted was she to her husband, despite his noted infidelities.
She also reveals that her husband played with toys in the bathtub and said perfunctory nighttime prayers while kneeling by his bed.

Since history is mostly written now by liberal fools, they would declare him a total failure versus the fawning admiration they show now. Doris Kearns Goodwin would describe him as a misogynist abuser of women instead of a loving caring family man.
Ut oh, Mrs Kennedy will have all MLK worshipers in a tizzy. Even a leftest icon such as Jackie O is not allowed to criticize the ultimate Marxist god!
Of course, JFK's wife was classier, too.
The truth hurts.
I would say more misguided than a phoney. He was a hypocrite about sexual matters, but I believe that that was not particularly uncommon among a lot of "progressives" at the time. And please, please, do not engage in the causal slander of his and his brother's military service that seems to be nearly mandatory on Free Republic.
She knew what was on the tapes. If she didn't mean what she had said or changed her mind, she had plenty of time to correct her remarks herself.
I do not know why Jackie made the tapes in the first place or why Caroline released them--but one thing's certain: they'll make lots of money.
Like Tammy said, sometimes it's hard to be a woman.
Or maybe she was thinking of JFK's airbourne command post, underground bunker, and all the other perks the POTUS has at his disposal...
LOL. Good point.
I agree entirely, which tells us just how big a problem we have with the current alignment of the media.
In a different recent thread here there was a comment by Justice Beyer in which he basically said that elected politicians were, by virtue of their success getting elected, ‘experts’ on popularity.
This underscores how important popularity and public perception are in public policy. The problem is that what is ‘popular’ can be fairly handily manipulated in a media driven society (which is why companies spend so much money advertising). When the media are almost all from a single ideological camp, they can have dramatic effects on what is perceived as mainstream and what is popular.
If we don’t develop very aggressive and effective means to counter the bulk effect of the media (and the entertainment industry) on what is defined as ‘mainstream’ and popular in society we will have a very hard time stopping the insidious effects of the left on our nation.
I think this says more about Jackie than anything else. And, points out the sickness of the celebrity-worship culture.
There are different types of intelligence. (And education)
Didn't Old Man "I heart Adolph" Joe pay her a reported $10M for not divorcing JFK?
I listened for a few minutes to her whisper into the mic....... but I didn’t care about her when she was alive and I certainly don’t care about her now.
IIRC she married a man (Onassis) who adored her.
She was apparently too naive (or too normal) to not realize her “position in history” had a price tag.
Do those ‘positions’ give a young widow (with two children) companionship and financial security?
Can't stand her for oh so many reasons. Never paid much attention to
her until she tried to stop people from using her father's tax cut
speech, when she (& her brother) had tried to evade estate taxes themselves.
The whole clan were phonies, and she just as much as they.
Was she really? Or did she benefit from the same fawning press that JFK himself basked in?
I'm not so sure about that. He was calculating and the consummate political animal. Like all politicians, he did what was best for him and his political future more than what was best for the country. Yet he milked the whole 'Camelot' crap for all it was worth.
And please, please, do not engage in the causal slander of his and his brother's military service that seems to be nearly mandatory on Free Republic.
What criticism I may have of JFK does not extend to his military service. His actions as CO of PT-109 reflect well on him, and he probably deserved more than the Navy and Marine Corps Medal for saving the survivors in his crew.
