50th Anniversary Of The Jfk Assassination

The Conspiracy Theory Is the Conspiracy

The JFK assassination became a liberal martyrdom in search of a conservative inquisitioner.

It is a faith not in good, but in evil.

Kennedy politics had been meant to be optimistic, but the assassination accelerated the liberal reversion to the underlying pessimism and paranoia, the sense that life was doomed, that people had to be rigidly controlled to keep society from coming apart.

The assassination was a warning, not from some secret organization, but from the consequences of the ideas of the left. Instead of searching for Cubans in the CIA, liberals should have looked in the mirror instead. The chaos and violence they were afraid of was not coming from some secret organization, it was coming from inside the movements of the left.

It still is. The real Kennedy conspiracy was an effort to suppress the basic truths of what had happened and to replace them with a recursive loop of conspiracy theories that could never resolve anything while convincing everyone that the basic truths of what happened could be safely ignored.

The conspiracy did not cover up the work of the secret organization that killed JFK, but the secret organizations of the left whose ideas led to his murder. The real JFK conspiracy concealed the deeper secret that the left is destructive and that its ideas carry a dark wind of chaos and violence.

The left cannot make history come out the way that it wants to, but it can always lie about it. Its myths of the past, dreams shattered by vast right-wing conspiracies, swallowed up by the greed of the 80s and 00s, are tawdry attempts at refusing to learn the lessons of history so that it will be given the freedom to repeat its terrible mistakes.

Lee Harvey Oswald was the stepchild of the left’s destructive ideas on society. The same madness that led to Guyana and the bombing of the Pentagon had its day fifty years ago in Dallas.

  1. If it ever goes public that the democrats were behind the assasination the party would be finished. Kennedy thought way too much like a conservative for his own good and had to be stopped. All they had to do afterward was to get a guy with a terminal illness to kill the shooter and keep quiet on his deathbed. I imagine his family is well taken care of as promised or…he had no family.

  2. And JFK was a big supporter for the existence of Israel. JFK was not a Liberal. Israel was not created in order to disappear – Israel will endure and flourish. It is the child of hope and the home of the brave. It can neither be broken by adversity nor demoralized by success. It carries the shield of democracy and it honors the sword of freedom.

  3. Lyndon Johnson had more motive and opportunity to set up the hit than anybody else. He was still angry that Kennedy got on the presidential ticket in the primaries over him. He believed he should have been president and Kennedy stole his rightful place from him. His connections to the events in Dallas should have been questioned a little more. And when he escalated the Vietnam war, he made tremendous profits through defense contracts. That last part doesn't prove his guilt in the assassination, but it does prove that he's a calculating man willing to sacrifice the lives of others for his own benefit. You can watch the man speak, and you can tell he's an aggressive, often angry man…who also had ambitions to be president before Kennedy did. He was more jealous and envious of Kennedy than Saul was of David.

    And today, Kennedy's policies would be considered conservative. All the rhetoric against communism. The intervention in Vietnam. And his belief that Americans should contribute to the greatness of America rather than the other way around is something a conservative would say, not a liberal. He also dragged his feet on civil rights issues…not that supporting civil rights is a conservative or liberal agenda. I think most on both sides support it, unless they have another motive telling them otherwise. The greater loss to America was the loss of Robert though.

    LBJ did it. They say Nixon was a devil, but they don't know LBJ.

  4. The Kennedy's were mobbed up.

  5. John Lennon was a wife beater.

  6. Maybe! Maybe your right, son!

  7. What a pity to loose a person whose love to needy people was beyond explanations!
