I am not a supporter of congressman Ron Paul. But one of the accusations that has been made against him, is racism, because of articles he published in his newsletters in the 1980s criticizing Martin Luther King.
But how come nobody called Jackie Kennedy a racist, when she made comments about Martin Luther King that were even more offensive and vitriolic, than Ron Paul? http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2011/09/12/earlyshow/main20104707.shtml
How many are aware that John F. Kennedy, failed to invite black entertainer, Sammy Davis Jr. to his inaugural ball, despite the fact that Davis worked extremely hard in the electoral campaign of 1960 to get him elected? How many are aware that Bobby Kennedy authorized J. Edgar Hoover, to spy on Martin Luther King's private life. The fat alcoholic, Ted Kennedy, whom I hope is burning in hell at this moment, supported pro-abortion laws that killed 50 million American babies, many of them black, over the past 40 years. Why are they not called racists?
I am sick and tired over how the liberal media and academia, has fawned over the evil Kennedy Family, which has produced some of the most horrible people in American history, including murderers and rapists.
When Ted Kennedy murdered Mary Jo Kopechne, he was not the first Kennedy to commit murder. There are allegations that his two elder brothers may have murdered more people, including Marilyn Monroe. I have always believed that, as evil as Ted Kennedy was, Jack and Bobby were even worse.
Their father, Joe Kennedy, was a major American organized crime boss, in the same league as Al Capone, Meyer Lansky, Lucky Luciano, and John Gotti. He made much of his money as a bootlegger during the prohibition era. Joe Kennedy was also a pro-Hitler and Pro-Nazi anti-semite, when he served as US ambassador to Britain. It should not surprise us, that during the JFK administation, the Kennedy brothers did business with an old business partner of their daddy, the Mafia boss, Sam Giancana. The Mafia business partners of Joe Kennedy, enabled him to steal the election in Chicago from Richard Nixon, in 1960. It is no surprise that President Nixon and many other Patriotic Americans, have always hated the Kennedy family.
Every diversity racist organization and activity is stationed and fed by the Democrat party. Before this current structure of race hate for power, the Democrats ran the white racist system of government and culture. The KKK and all.
Saddam is taking it a bit far, and that comparison would inevitably detract from the comparer’s credibility. But in general, it the democrat platform that is racist, and any democrat pol, including the Kennedy’s, had a vested interest in keeping black Americans poor and dependent on the feds.
All liberals are racist and practice the most common and underreported form of racism in America known as the racism of lower expectations.
Joe P Kennedy was an Anglophobe anti-semite, which is why he supported Hitler and the IRA.
By the way, John Kerry modelled himself after the Kennedy brothers. Americans have always viewed Kerry as a phony, which explains why they rejected him in the 2004 election. How come they have never noticed that JFK and RFK were just as phony as Kerry?
While I will disagree with you on JFK actions. Huge tax rate cut spurred a business surge that was very healthy.
But to the question. The Dummies have always been racist. They have the Blacks believing that without the Dummies help they would be nothing. Has resulted in a major segment of black community becoming cynical.
The “Kennedy horse” is deader than it’s ever been, so there’s no use beating it.It had its run, it’s seen its days of Camelot, and the common but unspoken perception of the entire clan is that they’re jinxed, and have somehow brought their personal jinx onto America. I’m cynical about them too, but it serves even less purpose to bring up the apparent racism of the Kennedys as a way of somehow exonerating Ron Paul for whatever beliefs may have found their way into his newsletter.
They were. People often forget it was Robert Kennedy who had MLK wiretapped, attempted to set him up with hookers, and had him jailed. The Kennedy’s used the full power of the government to try to destroy him and only sided with him when they saw how powerful his following was and used him for political gain. I can’t remember if it was his daughter or niece who had said that Kennedy basically traded releasing MLK from jail for his endorsement.
Kennedy’s = mostly published myth! Just another example of how the MSM controls what you are to believe. It continues today.
>>>Saddam is taking it a bit far, and that comparison would inevitably detract from the comparers credibility
Your reaction to my comment, shows how most Americans have been brainwashed by the liberal media, over the true record of the Kennedy family.
Are you aware of how evil their daddy, Joe P. Kennedy, was? He was an organized crime boss, for crying out loud! If I compared the late Mafia boss, John Gotti, to Saddam, would that be an unfair comparison? Joe P. Kennedy was worse than John Gotti. You need to read a good biography of Joe Kennedy, that is free of liberal bias, to know how evil he was. Did you know he supported Hitler, and was opposed to war against the Nazis? This caused FDR to fire him as ambassador to Britian. Ted Kennedy’s treatment of women, including the woman he murdered in 1969, would make my comparison to Saddam’s sons appropriate.
Oh hell, they destroyed America. The 1965 Immigration Act was Teddy's only achievement - his legacy is a balkanized "America" that is no longer a nation, but a squatter camp for Third Worlders. If the 9/11 hijackers had tried to enter the U.S. in 1960, they would have been under instant and routine suspicion: who are these guys and what are they doing here?
But not after Teddy got finished with us. Our enemies walk among us now, and we are forced to pretend they aren't our enemies - that they are "the real Americans".
Personal Jinx? Willful destruction.
I believe you could call them many worse things than that, with accuracy.
Black and white TV - daily national news that lasted 30 minutes (with ads) and a press corps that was biased beyond anything we experience today.
Revisionist history is a wonderful thing for the Kennedys.
Ron alterPaul is still a racist.
Simple. At the time the South really was racist - and solid democrat. But that was ok and we all had to “understand”. Likewise anti Cathoic hatred was a thing to be overcome. Because ....duh.
he was assasinated, so he will live in infamy. he accomplished not much, but got the space program going. obama ended it.
Sorry for the minor correction, but “Was” should be “Is” and the answer is “Absolutely!”
