Liberals Rewrite History to Blame Dallas and Conservatives for JFK Assassination
Rush Limbaugh.com ^ | November 21, 2013 | Rush Limbaugh

BEGIN TRANSCRIPT

RUSH: A little pop quiz. What do you call a politician who is pro-life? What do you call a politician who is for lower taxes? What do you call a politician who is for a strong national defense? What do you call a president who is a proud nationalist, proud to be an American? What do you call that person?

That is John Fitzgerald Kennedy. That is who JFK was. And that is the second attempted Drive-By Media Democrat Party distraction today. Although there's a little bit more justification for spending time on the 50th anniversary of that assassination than there is on this nuclear option business. Let me tell you how ridiculous this is getting. You and I all know, Warren report, whatever, we all know that Lee Harvey Oswald killed Kennedy. (interruption) I know. I can hear right now people throwing things at the radio, shouting things at the radio. We know that Lee Harvey Oswald fired on the president, okay? We know this, and we know what about Lee Harvey Oswald?

Lee Harvey Oswald was a communist. We know that a leftist, a communist assassinated JFK. That is the official Warren report conclusion. And yet the media cannot let go of the fact that because there were a lot of white Republican businessmen in Dallas, that it was a climate of hate, a climate of fear, a climate of extremism in Dallas that led to Kennedy's death. Every conspiracy theory that you have heard that makes you think Lee Harvey Oswald was not the assassin was started by the Democrats. Every one.

You go back and look at these wacko movies that they made with all the focus in New Orleans and you will find wacko leftist filmmakers who started all of these conspiracy theories. And the reason why is that the Democrat Party and the American left at the time were flabbergasted. They were shocked. They were stunned. They were just in a state of massive disbelief. At the time, ladies and gentlemen -- I can show you the documentation -- at the time the Democrat Party and the American left, just like today, felt that the right wing, people like Reagan and Goldwater, posed a much greater threat to America than Soviet or ChiCom communism. There's no mistake about it. It's not arguable.

That's why they were so discombobulated over the fact that a communist killed JFK, a communist killed and wiped out Camelot, which, by the way, didn't even exist while Kennedy was alive. Camelot was created as a massive public relations scheme by Jackie O. Well, she wasn't Jackie O yet. She was still Jackie Kennedy. Massive PR scheme. Last night, I think it was last night. Maybe it hasn't aired. I read a little blurb promoting a piece that Bob Costas is doing on some NBC cable network on the Kennedy assassination and what it was like to be a member of the Dallas Cowboys that year. The shame, the embarrassment of being from Dallas.

And the blurb on this program -- now, get this -- the blurb on this program that I read said that one of the Cowboys from that year, 1963, to be interviewed by Bob Costas on the NBC cable special was tight end Pettis Norman, and in the blurb that I read promoting this Bob Costas show on NBC, some cable network, Pettis Norman is quoted as saying, "We were all worried that some right-winger was gonna kill the president." Really? We're being asked to believe that the Dallas Cowboys had a player or players prior to Kennedy's trip to Dallas that were worried the right wing was going to assassinate JFK? The blurb that I read -- and I've not seen the show. I don't know where to find this cable network. I haven't looked very hard, but some of you may have seen the show. The blurb that I read said that Pettis Norman, a receiver for the Cowboys, actually said this.

That's an example of how just off the rails this is, and the attempt to totally change the narrative. Folks, a right-winger didn't kill Kennedy! A right-winger didn't even get a gun and get camped out to kill Kennedy. A left-winger, a communist, killed President Kennedy. And the left still can't accept that. They still have to indict Dallas, the Dallas of the day. (interruption) Even though who was from New Orleans? Well, Oswald, he was from New Orleans but he lived in Dallas. But he was from Moscow! Oswald was from Moscow.

He came back from Moscow, from Soviet-sponsored training for this. He was working with the Fair Play for Cuba Committee. I mean, really on a sports show? You know, the Cowboys went into Cleveland and played the Cleveland Browns. What they're also trying to do is history revision. Every sports network and website is now saying that that weekend is the darkest weekend in the history of the NFL, because Alvin "Pete" Rozelle, the commissioner of the day, made the decision to play the games.

Now everybody still alive that was in the NFL in those days is now saying, "We now Pete not to do it. We told Pete not to play the games. Nobody wants to play," and Pete Rozelle was on an island, apparently, that weekend. He was the only guy now that wanted to play. I mean, this is revisionist history. This is just over the top. I don't know Pettis Norman, and I firmly believe that the media can create people thinking this kind of thing.

I'm sure Pettis Norman, if he says, "Yeah, we were worried some right-winger was gonna come in and kill Kennedy," that's probably the result of the media since the assassination that has put the notion in everybody's mind that Dallas was a hotbed of what? Right-wing assassins! I just don't believe it. I don't believe in the Cowboys locker room that week were all worried that Kennedy was coming to town and some right-winger's gonna kill him.

But that is what he's quoted as saying -- and he apparently does say it, so who am I? It's just out of this world. Kennedy was not assassinated by anybody right winger from Dallas. These conspiracy theories -- many of them, I kid you not. Soviet specialists who've analyzed a lot of these have concluded that the KGB funded a lot of the conspiracy theories. You remember one of the great conspiracy theories -- I say "great," but one -- was by a guy named Mark Lane.

He was probably the first conspiracy theorist funded by the KGB, whether he knew it or not. Mark Lane wrote the first conspiracy book on the Kennedy assassin. It was called Rush to Judgment. That's before anybody knew who I was. That's a sign of the power I was yet to acquire. Rush to Judgment. It was the first to attack the Warren Commission. It came out before the Warren Commission Report. Lee Harvey Oswald lived in Dallas for a few months, all told.

He was from Moscow by way of New Orleans, and according to former KGB officer Vasili Mitrokhin in his 1990 book The Sword and the Shield, the KGB helped finance Mark Lane's research on Rush to Judgment without Mark Lane's knowledge. The KGB allegedly used an intermediary, a friend of Lane who was a KGB contact. I mean, all of this conspiracy crap back then was leftist conjured. The conspiracies were of leftists.

The real conspiracies that held water were that leftists had permeated, communists had infiltrated the US government. Yet the history revision is just amazing. It's a great illustration of how the media gets on to something and it becomes a project, if you will, and they don't let go of it, and the project is somehow to make everybody think that, "Yeah, Lee Harvey Oswald pulled the trigger, but that doesn't matter. Dallas did it!

"H. L. Hunt -- you know, all these rich industrialists in Dallas, these rich Republican guys, friends of Joe McCarthy! Dallas was a hotbed of right-wing extremism." I have a New York Times story from yesterday, written by a guy named Manny Fernandez. Now, I don't know, but I'm gonna guess that Manny Fernandez wasn't even alive during the Kennedy assassination. "Dallas -- When President John F. Kennedy's motorcade left the airport here shortly before noon on Nov. 22, 1963, the man seated in the lead car was the county sheriff, Bill Decker, 65, a storied Texas lawman who led the hunt for Bonnie and Clyde.

"Fifty years later, the badge belongs to Lupe Valdez, 66, the daughter of Mexican migrant farmworkers. She is the only sheriff in America who is an openly gay Hispanic woman. Voters re-elected Sheriff Valdez, a Democrat, to a third term last year." What in the name of Sam Hill does that have to do with the Kennedy assassination? That the old sheriff is some beat up, broken down right-winger by the name of Bill Decker and that the current sheriff is Lupe Valdez, the daughter of Mexican migrants?

This is designed to show how enlightened Texas has become. This is designed to show how modern Texas is. This opening paragraph is designed to show how backwards Texas was. Yeah, there was 65-year-old broken down, gun-slinging, longtime sheriff named Decker who brought down Bonnie and Clyde, but now somebody who really knows their business -- Lupe Valdez, the daughter of migrant Mexican farm workers who's gay and Hispanic -- is there.

"Dealey Plaza -- where the darkest day in Dallas history unfolded 40 minutes after the motorcade began -- looks eerily similar to what it was then, the sixth-floor corner window of the former Texas School Book Depository still cracked open slightly. But Dallas itself is almost as different as Bill Decker is from Lupe Valdez." Lupe Valdez, by the way, is not related to Juan Valdez of Folger's Coffee fame. Juan Valdez might just be a made-up figure.

"And the tension between past and present has unleashed a wave of citywide self-reflection a half-century later in a distinctly American place that is part Dallas Cowboys, part Texas excess and part urban melting pot, where the public school students come from homes where 70 languages are spoken. Painful, embarrassing memories of the angry anti-Washington culture that flourished here 50 years ago -- and now seems a permanent part of the national mood -- have resurfaced, confronting Dallasites daily."

This is absolute BS.

This is absolute, 100% hogwash.

This is just excrement, folks, the first three paragraphs of a New York Times story yesterday on Dallas.

So you see how they're continuing here to try to portray Dallas as responsible then, and it's still nothing to write home about. But then there is this: "In 1963, Dallas was the 14th-largest city in the country, with a majority-white population of nearly 700,000, a provincial place whose mostly white, mostly male establishment set the agenda." That sounds exactly like the New York Times today, to me! It has a majority white population, provincial place, mostly white, mostly male establishment sets the agenda. Mr. Fernandez, in describing Dallas, has also described the New York Times.

BREAK TRANSCRIPT

RUSH: Pettis Norman, the Dallas Cowboys, says the team was very, very worried that some stupid conservative right-winger was gonna kill the president when he came to town. I guarantee you, before this all said and done, it was the Tea Party that did it. Before it's all said and done, before they finish with this, the Tea Party will actually be said to have had its roots in Dallas in 1963 and that the madcap, extremist, right-wing lunaticism is actually the spawning place of the modern day Tea Party.

Don't doubt me.

Look, even when I make jokes about these people I end up being right about 'em, so don't discount that.

I was just listening to him. Maha Rushie told it as it really was. On a personal note, I believed the mafia had JFK killed until I heard Gerald Posner on tv. Communist Oswald had a nasty temper with Marina (his wife) and Marina used to tease Oswald how handsome Pres. Kennedy was and how Pres. Kennedy reminded Marina of a very handsome boyfriend of hers in Minsk.

Even as a mediocre president, JFK was easily the best Democrat to occupy the Oval office since noon on March 4, 1897. That's 116 years now.

They began blaming conservatives and Dallas the day of the assassination. And they're still doing it. Dallas 1963 (New York: Twelve, 2013) by Bill Minutaglio and Steven L. Davis is the latest book to blame the assassination on the "climate of hate"--generated, of course, by conservatives--that permeated Dallas in 1963.

I also now believe that Oswald alone shot Kennedy, and for the same reasons as you.

I do, however, believe the theory that Secret Service George Hickey in the car following Kennedy accidentally delivered the head shot in the chaos of the moment:

Accidental assassin: JFK theory alleges Secret Service agent fumbled gun

I was convinced by the documentary JFK: The Smoking Gun

You can find it online and watch it for free.

If you watch the Zapruder film, the shot that blew Kennedy's head apart obviously is different that the shot the hit him in the throat.

Oswald was using full metal jacket bullets, which do not expand. The second shot is not a full metal jacket bullet.

Could you consider that it might have been Johnson?

Roger Stone (former GOP consultant, now a libertarian...no friend of the left) is arguing that in a book just released a month or so ago.

Personally....I think it is Johnson.

And I believe Oswald was in fact a patsy....

I have no problem believing that Oswald was a tiny little man who wanted people to pay attention to him and he did it on his own. The smirk pretty much says it all.

He was thrilled to be there and have all eyes on him.

How can Oswald have alone shot Kennedy while at the same time Hickey shot Kennedy in the head?

They only found one bullet, the "magic bullet" that went through Kennedy and Connolly.

The bullet that blew Kennedy's head apart disintegrated.

The ballistics expert also determined that, because Connolly was sitting in a jump seat that was lower than a normal seat, the "magic bullet" did not have to be magic at all to have hit both men.

I am referring to the intentional shooting by Oswald. George Hickey did not shoot Kennedy intentionally. He never would have picked up the rifle had Kennedy not been shot.

“Personally....I think it is Johnson.”

I have no idea, but that bastard was certainly capable of it. I’d bet there are more than a few bodies buried in Texas who were politically inconvenient to Johnson.

‘’When any two people know anything in Washington it’s a conspiracy’’ goes the old saying. How in the world could anyone or any group plan and execute something like this and everyone involved keeps their mouth shut for fifty years? It would be impossible.

The second shot is not a full metal jacket bullet.

Are you familiar enough with the ballistics 6.5x51 Carcano cartridge to say that. It's a long narrow bullet and very unstable, kind of like a 5.45x39. It tends to keyhole or deflect randomly when it hits anything.

The left have had people chasing bunny rabbits for 50 years now. The purpose of all Kennedy conspiracy theories is to exonerate Oswald and the communists.

If you want to play into their hands enjoy yourself but the truth is, a communist named Lee Oswald killed JFK, and JD Trippit, and wounded General Ted Walker.

I saw the JFK assassination aftermath unfold on live tv and I am still fascinated by this crime. I am also fascinated by how people analyze and think .. or not. You can learn a lot about some FReepers by just reading a thread like this. Some of it is impressive and some of it .. not so much. :-).

My favorite wacko conspiracy theory is the recent one that the limo driver did it (based on the video anomalies). Some people actually believe it.

I agree. The only *known* shooter was Oswald, and if there were evidence in those sealed documents which pointed to some right-winger, you can bet the info would've been leaked.

Sandy Hook, Gabby Giffords shooter, Colorado movie theater shooter, Ted Kazincky, The Boston bombers, all can be directly linked to what? The right wing? NO

In fact most of them were mentally troubled individuals... many under, or recently under a doctors (psychologist/psychiatrist) care and on anti crazy meds or anti-depressants.

NONE were right wing nuts, most actually the opposite. Several were/are left wing extremists!

So next time the left wants to shout and cry about the right wing, or train the delta force about right wing extremists and the tea party just be aware the left should look back on it's own crop of crazies.

Then we need an honorable mention for the whole green peace/save the spotted owl owls killers/ redwood tree huggers/ etc.....

There is a difference, isn’t there, between a carbine and a rifle? A carbine is a weapon originally designed for use by cavalry troops that is a smaller weapon that fires a smaller caliber round with less of an fps and hitting power than that of a rifle?

That sounds like something Pete Seeger the commie folksinger would belt out.

“We are all responsible!” was a common liberals’ lament in those days.

“We let the right inject this poison into the American mainstream and this is the result” - John Kenneth Galbraith, liberal Canadian economist, on the assassination.

On my level, the day JFK was shot was the date of birth of the modern gun control movement. It’s been a war for our individual rights ever since.

Not according to the ballistics expert who spent 25 years investigating it.

Here is a google search for the documentary "JFK: The Smoking Gun"

The above is not a direct link, so there is no need for the moderators to get involved. If you look through the google links you will find some that will allow you to watch the movie.

This is the only book and documentary about an actual ballistics experts study of the Kennedy assassination.

I always think that Dubya was the best Democrat President we ever had: saving Africans, Part-D, fall of Saddam, pretty self-effacing, just enough cadet to land a plane on a deck. And in retirement a Sunday painter. Just switch the (R) with a (D) and the whole thing comes into focus.

And Lyndon Johnson called direct sale of firearms “mail order murder”.

Never before knew that the assassination literally saved LBJ’s political career & that JFK/RFK had been planning to drop him from the 1964 ticket. For whom, I wonder.

Johnson was hateful. Glad he corked off early.

No he is totally an "R" in all the modern realities of the designation. He is certainly not a conservative or a Democrat. But he is NOT left wing like the left wing hold themselves to be.
All that said, given the realities of the current president and his party, would we be better with Bush for the last 6 years?

Earlier in his career Johnson had a political rival who was mysteriously shot and killed.

Coincidence?

The model 1891 series rifles were made in both 7.35 and 6.5 MM variants. They were manufactured with barrel lengths of ranging from 17.7 in (45 cm) to 30.7 in (70 cm).

Oswald's was a 6.5 MM model 91/38 Fucile di Fanteria, short infantry rifle. Interestingly I can't find the barrel length for his rifle. Not really a carbine. The 7.35 MM Mod. 38 Fucile di Fanteria that preceded the 91/38 FdF had a 20.9 in (50.3 cm) barrel and I suspect that the Italians would have stuck with this when the returned to the old 6.5 MM cartridge in the 91/38. Just looking at pictures of the rifle this seems right.

I think the Senate committee said the Mafia or anti Castro Cubans may be involved. But the were unable to reach any definitive conclusions. As for the alleged fourth shot, the cop whose mike allegedly recorded the fourth shot says that the shot couldn’t come from his mike.

I was actually on with the name Andrew P. Sipowicz for about six months before I took this name.

Poor Andy got banned for some reason.
