Skip to comments.Coming Attractions: New movie Chappaquiddick may threaten Kennedy mythology
Posted on 12/23/2017 8:00:43 AM PST by rktman
By the standards of the #MeToo movement, the late Senator Ted Kennedy was a monster, far worse than anything alleged about Harvey Weinstein. And he has never been held to account, by the media and historians, for his brutal crmies against women. He not only accidentally killed one of his prey, Mary Jo Kopechne, he engaged in a vicious sexual assault in public, in the so-called waitress sandwich attack. Readers unfamiliar with that incident are urged to read the undisputed account of the violent attack that was witnessed by fellow diners at Washingtons expensive La Brasserie restaurant.

Rest in HELL, Teddy.
Liberals will call it a pack of lies, as they always do when some one presents evidence that goes against their beliefs. Conservatives on the other hand already dismiss the mythology that surrounds him in particular, & his family as a whole.
And that POS is interred at Arlington National Cemetery, where rest my father, mother, aunt, & uncle, and one day, Lord willing, so will I. The remains of that lying, murderous, traitorous, violent, anti-American Leftist skunk foul the hallowed ground that holds so many of our nation’s honored dead.
Ted Kennedy:"Look at Moses - he was a great leader, a great man. But in a fit of rage he murdered an Egyptian."
Kennedy handler: "Moses never left a dead girl at the bottom of the Red Sea."
About time. They sure put out Watergate major movie releases quickly, but when the shame is targeted at a Democrat they wait until it doesnt matter.
Remember when Rush identified Mary Jo K as the most influential woman in politics? How true.
Ah... i think CHAPPAQUIDDICK threatened the Kennedy mythology
Once the movie is out, conservatives need to point out all the Teddy supporters who knew how bad he was.
And Ted Kennedy = real collusion with the Russians!
Robert Bork is looking down..... LOL
It is total BS that Ted Kennedy ever had the slightest regrets, remorse or pangs of conscience about what happened at Chappaquiddick. None. Zero. Zilch. Nada. The only thing he cared about then was how to save his own hide and political future. The only thing he cared about the rest of his life was keeping the Kennedy myths (yes, plural) alive so he could hide behind them.
I'm sure plenty of reprehensible people have been elected to Congress in the course of our country's 230 years, but NONE more so than Edward M. Kennedy.
“Senatorial Privilege”, a smallish book I read many years ago laid the whole thing out pretty well. Don’t know if it’s even available any more.
I remember the no autopsy controversy.
I also believe that Teddy paid Mary Jo’s parents an undisclosed amount of money. And something I recalled at the time. Mary Jo’s mother said that she (Mary Jo) had a serious boy friend. As I recall he was never identified.
In 1970 I was working in Washington D.C. as a summer employee. There were several people in the office that I worked that simple said “Teddy can do no wrong.”
In a great piece by Kurt Schlichter, he nails it:
The Left is getting massively out-Alinskyed, and the hilarious thing is that this band of withered hippies, unemployable millennial safe-space cases, and unlovable + unshaven libfeminists dont even know it.
The Leftist mafia godmaleidentifyingparents pulling the strings of the Marxist Muppets know the score they are losing. And its awesome. Because, finally, the Right has taken Saul Alinskys Rules for Radicals and shoved it up where #TheResistance dont shine.
Thank you, Andrew Breitbart. You yelled Follow me! and led a movement that had previously been dominated by doofy wonks and bow-tied geeks over the top in a glorious bayonet charge against the paper tiger liberal elite.
For Donald Trump and the revitalized conservative movement, Alinsky's book isnt some dusty old commie tome - its a lifestyle.
Best. Election. EVER.
Several years ago, I was having a political discussion with a couple of young ladies who worked in my office (they were in their late 20s/early 30s, liberal Democrats - but we got along fine.) Ted Kennedy’s name came up, and I told them about Chappaquiddick. They were absolutely stunned. They had never heard about this before.
At one time I read very detailed timeline type of info re Chappaquididick - the reason it took him so long to raise the alarm was because of the time he spent trying to talk one of his cousins into saying he was driving. Don’t know whether that is covered in the “new movie”.
“I’m sure plenty of reprehensible people have been elected to Congress in the course of our country’s 230 years, but NONE more so than Edward M. Kennedy.”
I think John McCain is trying hard to beat that record...when the truth about him is told in another 20-30 years, I think even those who despise him will be surprised at how bad it is!
I don’t think he accidently killed Mary Jo. I think he deliberately killed one of his pregnant girlfriends.
I think these kinds of stories are important not just seeing how disgusting dems are, but the nature of the human mind unchecked is always itself the source of suffering and evil. It so happens that the unchecked and hence delusional mind and thinking process tends strongly toward the left ... but the original sin and its close relatives the mortal sins are all delusions of the mind (sin originally means 'to miss the mark,' - i.e. to misperceive and hence mis-act or mis-aim) and if the mind is not tamed, it's a reckless psychopath in most cases.
In other words, the DEFAULT, unchecked state, of the human mind, is that of a psychopath. The exception is the tamed or humbled mind. Most people are somewhere in between, and as a result, human history especially in groups, mobs and big governments - which is just a mob -> tends toward the violent, destructive and as a whole the human race's history, while at times punctuated by clarity and beauty and strength, tends in general to hover around the antics of a psych ward abandoned by the staff.
the cure is not a question of what direction is correct for the powerful to take - what philosophy. It's a question of making sure nobody has much power. In other words ... it's a chronic condition that you manage by giving no one power, maximizing freedom, and hence not letting evil concentrate.
But alas! I wax philosophical. What scumbags the lefties are! :-)
He lied when he said it would not change the ethnic composition of the urban areas.
Just one of his many lies.
