Quoth Robert F. Kennedy Jr. on September 15, 2008 on the Huffington Post in criticism of Governor Sarah Palin:
Fascist writer Westbrook Pegler, an avowed racist who Sarah Palin approvingly quoted in her acceptance speech for the moral superiority of small town values, expressed his fervent hope about my father, Robert F. Kennedy, as he contemplated his own run for the presidency in 1965, that some white patriot of the Southern tier will spatter his spoonful of brains in public premises before the snow flies.
Yet the same Robert F Kennedy, to my knowledge, hasn't said boo about Bill Ayers' dedication of his book "Prairie Fire" to Sirhan Sirhan (and has publically called Sirhan a hero) .... the man who actually shot and killed his father!
More on Ayers and his book Prairie Fire:
The guy is not only a lawyer but an environmental lawyer. You REALLY expect ethics?
Don’t know anything about this guy Palin may have quoted,but I do know the democrats revere a scumbag racist in Robert Byrd.
Well Bobby Jr. that didn’t happen, but what did IIRC was that some Syrian Muslim spattered RFK’s brains all over a kitchen in California. OH Well. better luck next time.
I regret to say that a Leftist Separatist who was a racist named Sirhan shot and killed Robert Kennedy. And we know that Joseph Kennedy was a supporter of Adolf Hitler and traded with him
Take it with a grain of salt...seems he was “with it” (anti fasicst andanit communist) until later in age...maybe he suffered some nurocous
Palin read a speech written by Matthew Scully that contained the quote....
Typical liberal attack while ignoring the terrorist standing next to him...
Yes, it’s true , Palin quoted this guy in what may have been the only innocuous words he ever wrote. She didn’t mention him by name, and I’m sure wouldn’t have used the quote if she knew what a real fascist bigot he actually was. Wonder if she wrote the speech herself, or who it was who fed her the quote. Either way, it does indicate a little naivete on her part. And I’m surprised to hear Westbrook Pegler was still writing and apparently being read in the mid 60s. He was a relic by that time.
Nice pickup there on Sirhan Sirhan.
Of coruse RFK got his started working for Joe McCarthy, a man whom he deeply admired.
All the charges of socialist, marxist, communist that were hurled at Obama this election, and not one peep about McCarthyism that I’m aware. Weird.
Yet this clown will be a cabinet member for Obama who’s sugar daddy Bill Ayers dedicated a book to his father’s murderer.
Way to go RFK, Jr.
Yes, politics makes strange bedfellows indeed ... but this is really sick.
And it turns out Matthew Scully wrote that part of the speech quite a bit before Sarah Palin was chosen as the running mate. Interestingly, Matthew Scully is as unstereotypical a Republican as Palin is, and is known for being ferociously opposed to hunters, and all forms of what could be considered animal cruelty, for profit or otherwise.He wrote a very well received book called DOMINION. So he almost seems the worst fit possible to author a Sarah Palin speech. Almost looks like a setup were it not for the abovementioned fact of the timing.
If said timing is true. Who’s word do we take on that?
Anyone know the quote that everyone is referring to?
RFK Jr. is really a demented moonbat, if his name wasn’t Kennedy he would be masturbating on his keyboard and posting vanities with 4-Letter words on DU.
What makes you think he doesn’t?
LOL, you’re probably right, have you ever heard this guy? He’s unhinged?, I think even Ted is embarrassed by him.
Sirhan Sirhan was a Palestinan, pulled off the first real big Muslim terrorist job by killing RFK, history has been re-written. Much as it’s been re-written that a Marxist-Leninist DIDN’T kill JFK. Lee Harvey Oswald, an ex-Marine with a rifle, fueled by his Marxist-Leninism and delusions of grandeur killed JFK.
There are millions and millions of facts and quotes about all kinds of things in this world today that might come up about countless subjects, political or otherwise. Who can keep track of even an eighth of them. Do you really think that everybody who is not naive would have recognized this particular quote? Sarah Palin was running from one place to the next almost everyday in a whirlwind of activity. She certainly did not have time to research every statement handed to her in her speeches. She should of been able to trust the writers, that they were not putting things into the speeches that were sourced from fascist bigots.
RFK Jr. was convicted on drug charges years ago. To listen to him talk, I think that the drugs affected his mind and his throat.
