Skip to comments.Did the Tea Party Kill JFK?

For all these years, theyve hidden the truth about the Kennedy assassination.
It didnt require a conspiracy. It just took repeating a falsehood until it was accepted as conventional wisdom. The myth about the Kennedy assassination is that President John F. Kennedy, at great personal risk, traveled to Dallas a.k.a. the City of Hate, and was somehow murdered by an atmosphere of intolerance. The truth is that he was shot by a communist.
As James Piereson writes in his brilliant book Camelot and the Cultural Revolution, liberals had the choice after the assassination to make Kennedy a martyr to civil rights or admit that he was a casualty of the Cold War. They found the notion of Kennedy dying for racial progress much more congenial and useful, even though it depended on a rank distortion.
The misdirection, as Piereson points out, began in the immediate aftermath of Lee Harvey Oswalds act of murder. A New York Times headline intoned, Why America Weeps: Kennedy Victim of Violent Streak He Sought to Curb in the Nation. Earl Warren, the chief justice of the Supreme Court, blamed the hatred and bitterness that has been injected into the life of our nation by bigots.(continued)

I’m suggesting that Earl Warren, the chief justice of the Supreme Court was a bigot.
“....when after all, it was you and me.”
We have another couple of days of attempts to revise history, particularly by libtards who have penned crappy books.
I’m sure I heard on the news and from my parents that Lee Harvey Oswald was a communist who had recently come back from Russia...
Dallas, Public and Private: Aspects of an American City by Warren Leslie (New York: Grossman, 1964)--an early effort to "Palin-ize" Dallas.
Dallas 1963 by Bill Minutaglio and Steven L. Davis (New York: Twelve, 2013)--the latest effort to "Palin-ize" Dallas.
The other night, there was a “documentary” on PBS hosted by the Hollywood lib George Clooney.
It was called “Secrets of the Dead: The JFK Assassination.”
The show started with an aerial view of the Dallas area as it looked fifty years ago, with Clooney talking about segregation in Dallas and how many residents were angry with JFK for being too soft with the Russians.
No mention, of course, of Oswald being an avowed Marxist.
Another documentary on public television the other night went into great detail about Oswald and his fascination with socialism/communism, his life in Russia, etc. This two-hour program was far more accurate about Oswald and his belief system. It’s called, “Who Was Lee Harvey Oswald?”
of course, the Tea Party shot Lincoln too.
Tea party bombed Pearl harbor with the help of the Japanese.
It’s also a working theory that the Tea party was a party to the mass extinction of the dinosaurs.
But...but...but...Earl Warren was a Republican so he must have been a great guy? Right? /s
The reality is that some of the most destructive decisions were handed down during the reign of Warren.
Well, they tried to blame Texas, but Oswald was a Lucy-Anna native and only spent a few years of his life in Texas. Maybe we should start calling New Orleans the “City of Hate”?
Two things no one in the news ever mention.
One, JFK was a life member of the NRA.
Two, Oswald was a communist.
Off topic a bit, I do get a kick out of the title of a column in a weekly tabloid here in our town.
...which leads, of course, to this classic:
And for Dallas residents there's always Mayor Pro-Tem Dwaine Caraway honoring Oswald's contributions with a celebratory Key to the City ($1 to the Unticket):
LOL at the Caraway pic, what a character he is.
so wrong. lol
Thanks...and I’m sorry that I forgot to ping you since I knew you’d get a kick of the pictures. Glad you came across them anyway!
The award ceremony pic looks pretty convincing
Not only was Earl Warren a republican, so was Arlan Specter who served on the Warren Commission.
For those not from here, it all traces back to when ol' Dwaine really (no kidding) presented an honorary key to our fair town to dog killer Michael Vick.
I was listening this morning, Gordo seems to know everything there is to know about Lee Harvey Oswald.
Why don’t we blame DC for killing Lincoln and Garfield? Or why not blame Buffalo for killing McKinley? Don’t forget evil LA, they killed RFK. Didn’t DC attempt to kill Reagan and Clinton? Heck, maybe the media needs to examine the hate in DC?
Three, that in a private letter to the vice-president, Ronald Reagan labeled JFK a Marxist, and asked to be allowed to campaign for Nixon, Reagan also said that he was switching parties.
Ronald Reagan-—””One last thought,— shouldn’t some one tag Mr. Kennedy’s bold new imaginative program with it’s proper age? Under the tousled boyish hair cut it is still old Karl Marx—first launched a century ago. There is nothing new in the idea of a Govt. being Big Brother to us all. Hitler called his “State Socialism” and way before him it was “benevolent monarchy.”””
Arlen Specter was not much of a republican, and the Earl Warren Court was known as the “libertarian” court although very republican.
Specter was a Democrat from 1951 to 1965, then a Republican from 1965 until 2009, when he switched back to the Democratic Party.
Is is uncanny how true this article is. The only thing missing (and it is barely missing) is connecting W Bush to it.
If it were left up to the demodummies, they would blame the Tea Party or Bush.
Eh, I think the worst of the opinions came down during the Burger court.
Let them speak for their own lame history.
Traitor Roberts is in the running.
Similarly, although it's hard to fathom today, the Dallas Morning News was staunchly Conservative, Patriotic, anti-Klan and opposed the UN under the brave leadership of publisher Ted Dealey who fearlessly told Kennedy, to his face, in 1961:
The general opinion of the grassroots thinking in this country is that you and your administration are weak sisters. If we stand firm, there will be no war. The Russians will back down. We need a man on horseback to lead this nation, and many people in Texas and the Southwest think that you are riding Carolines tricycle.
In those days, the Times-Herald was the leftist organ favoring JFK/LBJ whereas the News took a pro-American, pro-liberty, anti-communist stance. Dealey's paper was strongly opposed to the tyranny of labor unions.
