SORRY DAN, BUT THIS IS TOO HARSH ON THOSE OF US THAT STILL DOUBT THE OFFICIAL STORY….HOW DID JACK RUBY JUST HAPPEN TO BE ARMED WHEN OSWALD WAS BEING TAKEN AWAY. FURTHERMORE, TOO MUCH IS SEALED FROM THE PUBLIC…FOR EXAMPLE… THE WHOLE CHAPPAQUIDDICK INCIDENT AND SENATOR KENNEDY; THE SUICIDE OF MARILYN MONROE AND THE BROTHERS KENNEDY- JACK AND TRIBOROUGH; THE MYSTERIOUS DEATH OF JAMES COLBY WHO LEFT HIS HOT BREAKFAST AND DECIDED TO GO OUT ON A CANOE; THE SCHOOL RECORDS OF A MAN NAMED BARRY SOETERO; THE SUICIDE OF VINCE FOSTER AND THE SWEEPING UP OF HIS OFFICE BEFORE THE MEDIA WAS ALERTED…..ONE COULD GO ON AND ON…..RSK
Sometimes a conspiracy theory exposes a conspiracy. Sometimes the conspiracy theory is the conspiracy.
JFK assassination plots are the only conspiracy theories to be widely accepted by the general public. The moon landing filmed in a studio, the Lincoln conspiracy or the World Trade Center being blown up by lasers from outer space never gained much credence because they lacked mainstream backing. Conspiracy theories ordinarily remain on the margins. The JFK theories were too important to the liberals who were really running things to allow them to die out.
There are probably more Americans who could tell you the ins and outs of the “magic bullet” than can recite the Bill of Rights from memory. More books have been sold about the Kennedy assassination than about any of the real government abuses taking place today.
The 50th anniversary of the Kennedy assassination brings with it the usual weighty tomes, speculative articles and nostalgic reminiscing about the utopia that might have been. The political messianism of JFK was as doomed as that of any other liberal savior. Unlike Obama, it conveniently ended in a martyrdom which excused a generation of liberal failures.
