Salon Attempts to Paint Avowed Communist Lee Harvey Oswald as a “Right-Winger”

Via Salon today comes one of the most truly bizarre pieces of revisionist history I have ever seen, even within the context of articles appearing at Salon.

Nothing that ever came out of Harvey’s mouth (or anything he ever did) could remotely align him with Conservatism!!

They’re total idiots there. Their bios are pretty much the same. East Coaster brats, private schools both prep and college. And often young without real-world experiences. Brainwashed and hypocritical.

I've heard this before. Way back in the 80’s. Believed it too, until I woke up!

Come on. We all know the drill. Any evil person in history is “right wing.” Lee Harvey Oswald, Hitler, Stalin, Genghis Kahn, Attila the Hun, Vlad the Impailer, King John of England, Caligula, Nero. All of them would be voting Republican and attending Tea Party rallies if they were alive today.

This, BTW, is in my “48 Liberal Lies About American History.” Only ONE of the 20 US history textbooks I looked at identified LHO as a communist. When a descriptor was used, it was usually “a Marine,” a “former Marine” or a “deranged Marine.”

I suppose they think he's a right winger because he had a gun?!?!?!

How ignorant in a totally surreal overweening way.

Don't they know that the only way that their fellow comrades are able to keep their Socialist systems intact has always been through the use of guns in the hands of the government?

Few people would be in a Communist system by choice so the Soviet Union, PolPot, Fidel, and Ceausescu could only keep their subjects in line because they had guns!

It's almost as big a mistake as the Leftists that think the Nazi's were right-wing!

How could they make such an outrageous statement, knowing that he lived in the USSR, tried to denounce his US citizenship and become a citizen of the USSR?

Incredible!

Right wingers routinely defected to the Soviet Union, married Russian wives, and distributed “Fair Play for Castro” pamphlets. Hell, you could have barely distinguished Oswald from Barry Goldwater.

Good point. By 1963 standards, Oswald was an extremely radical Communist. By the editorial standards of the staff of Salon in 2014, Oswald was conservative. (As were Marx, Lenin, Stalin, Pol Pot and Mao.)

Oswald was a communist (LEFT WING nut) for Pete’s sake. Like the maggots over at the Saloon. He was trained in the old Soviet Union. Saloon is proof that you can send a moron to “college” and give them a diploma but it does not guarantee that they are going to know anything.

Lee Harvey Oswald passing out pro-Castro flyers in downtown New Orleans, does not a right-winger make.

U.S. Marine Lee Harvey Oswald, DEFECTING to Soviet Russia, and denouncing his American citizenship, in the middle of The Cold War, does NOT a right-winger make.

I remember, and did not have to look this up, to prove my point.

The more important point is that Oswald was connected with the CIA—and did not shoot anybody. LBJ murdered JFK, and Oswald was not one of the shooters.

Agree, but the word you want is RENOUNCE, not “denounce.” Don’t give our enemies ammo.
