Oswald was no nut.


He was a leftist.

James Piereson in the Wall Street Journal:
JFK—Casualty of the Cold War Lee Harvey Oswald was a communist who idolized Castro and hated America.
A good article, except for the assertion that JFK was a "casualty of the Cold War."

Bullshit. JFK was a casualty of a leftist.

If you want a disgusting precis of liberal propaganda, just consider the recurring assertions that Kennedy was a victim of an American propensity for violence, the incessant reference to right-wing protests and organizations in Dallas, etc, and the astonishing refusal of liberals to admit that Kennedy was murdered by a man from their end of the political spectrum.

The facts:

1) JFK was murdered by a leftist.
2) Conservatives had nothing whatsoever to do with the assassination.
3) Conservatives warned America about the danger the Left posed to our country. The assassination proved them right.
4) The nearly universal bleating from the media, academics etc. about how Kennedy's assassination demonstrated the "violent streak" in American culture was and is obscene. Kennedy was killed by one man-- a man wholly of the Left. Conservatives and mainstream Americans had nothing to do with Kennedy's murder.
5) The media and academia were and are politically quite close to Oswald on many issues.
6) Oswald was not a nut. He was a leftist who shared many of the views of the left then and now: he sympathized with Cuba, the Soviet Union, socialism, and he hated capitalism, etc. Oswald's political views would fit nicely in any number of Hollywood cocktail parties and modern Democratic Party soirees, and you couldn't fit an index card between Oswald's politics and the politics of the far-left Castro-loving loon just elected mayor of New York City.
7) Oswald's murder of Kennedy didn't make him a nut either. It just meant that he was evil, and shared the violent proclivities of University of Illinois professor Bill Ayers, Columbia professor Kathy Boudin, and many other leftists with blood on their hands.

In fact, both Ayers and Boudin killed more people than Oswald. Oswald killed two people. Ayers and Boudin killed three people each.

If Oswald's first murder victim hadn't been so prominent a person, Oswald-- a leftist cop killer like Boudin-- would be a hero to the left, a professor at some prestigious university perhaps, like Ayers and Boudin are today.

  1. Another leftist myth pertains to JFK's foreign policy.

    "Fifty years is long enough to mold history into mythology, but in the case of John Fitzgerald Kennedy it only took a decade or so. Indeed, long before Lyndon Johnson slunk off into the sunset, driven out of office by antiwar protestors and a rebellion inside his own party, Americans were already nostalgic for the supposedly halcyon days of Camelot. Yet the graceless LBJ merely followed in the footsteps of his glamorous predecessor: the difference, especially in foreign policy, was only in the packaging.

    "While Kennedy didn’t live long enough to have much of an impact domestically, except in introducing glitz to an office that had previously disdained the appurtenances of Hollywood, in terms of America’s stance on the world stage—where a chief executive can do real damage quickly—his recklessness is nearly unmatched."

    1. Kennedy avoided war by refusing to strike Cuba during the Bay of Pigs, and avoided nuclear war with his masterful handling of the Cuban missile crisis. Given his demonstrated ability to resist pressure from the warmongers on the joint chiefs, in the Pentagon, and in Congress, I doubt very much that Vietnam would have gone down the way it did had he not been assassinated. Only conservative hypocrites would dare call this hard line anti-communist president, who nevertheless skillfully avoided a nuclear war, a warmonger.

      Popeye: "Only conservative hypocrites would dare call this hard line anti-communist president, who nevertheless skillfully avoided a nuclear war, a warmonger."

      You're right! Kennedy was the only President that skillfully avoided a nuclear war! Why, I remember the nuclear war Reagan started. It knocked down a Wall in Berlin.

      Of course, Kennedy has his own Wall. It has 50,000 names. The names that Leftists spat upon when the caskets came back to The World.

      Popeye: "Kennedy avoided war by refusing to strike Cuba during the Bay of Pigs"

      There is no Wall for the brave souls abandoned to slaughter or prison at the Bay of Pigs. But there is a monument with an eternal fame dedicated to the "Martires de la brigada de asalto" in Miami's "Little Havana".

      Thanks for Playa Girón [Bay of Pigs]. Before the invasion, the revolution was weak. Now it's stronger than ever.

    4. Once again Admiral, you are full of crap. Kennedy was dead and buried well before the U.S. Congress passed the Gulf of Tonkin Resolution. Kennedy troop commitments where limited, and there are numerous instances of Kennedy expressing skepticism about our involvement and promised withdrawal, not escalation. Johnson is the president that allowed Vietnam to spiral into an unwinnable quagmire.

      No one knows what Kennedy would have done. We only know what he did. Which is get America entangled in a war that Johnson continued and escalated and Nixon/Kissinger ended.

      For a materialist like you to pretend to divine the thoughts of a dead man is beyond absurd. Save it for the seances.

      The Wall has Kennedy's name written all over it.

    6. Admiral your reading comprehension seems to be getting worse by the day. As I said, “Given his demonstrated ability to resist pressure from the warmongers on the joint chiefs, in the Pentagon, and in Congress, I doubt very much that Vietnam would have gone down the way it did had he not been assassinated.”

      No divining thoughts or séances necessary, just knowledge of history.

      History is what happened. Divining how history might have turned out if things had been different is "alternate history" or "alternative reality", a form of literary fiction.

      When used as an argument, it's known simply as "making it up as you go along".

  2. Sure, it's just a coincidence that the victims of assassination (the Kennedy borthers, MLK etc) were the enemies of conservative racist scum.

    2. Troy, I'm not so sure. In the case of JFK, it may be that he was the enemy of the CIA and the Pentagon. See The National Security State and the Assassination of JFK: The CIA, the Pentagon, and the `Peace President` which concludes: "As a result of the death of JFK, the National Security State “secret government” – or the ‘deep political’ system, as it is more accurately described, got exactly what it wanted with the escalation of the Vietnam War. The military-industrial complex that President Eisenhower warned the American people about two years prior, had turned the apparatus of the “secret government” in on the president, himself. It was a political lynching on a grand scale. And it was not to be the last."

  3. Dr. Egnor, who spouts conspiracy theories on an almost daily basis, is awfully quick to accept the official government version of events when it suits his narrative.

  4. Egnor: In fact, both Ayers and Boudin killed more people than Oswald. Oswald killed two people. Ayers and Boudin killed three people each.

    That's a pretty brazen lie.

    2. Name the three people Bill Ayers killed.

    3. Hoo;

      Theodore Gold, Diana Oughton, Terry Robbins.

      Ayers was the capo of the bomb squad, and has admitted to organizing over 70 bombings. The Weather Underground-- Ayer's gang-- planned to explode the Greenwich Village nail bomb at a dance honoring young soldiers and their dates and families at Ft. Dix. It exploded prematurely, killing Ayers' roomate and killing Ayers' girlfriend in the process.

    4. Ayers didn't any of them. They were killed as they were assembling the bomb.

      You are a liar, doc.

    5. So the leader and organizer of a gang of terrorist bombers is not responsible for deaths caused by the bombs?

      Egnor: "[The nail bomb] exploded prematurely, killing Ayers' roomate and killing Ayers' girlfriend in the process."

      That's so sad. Where was OSHA? I wonder if their nonprofit political action organization had the required materials handling posters, workplace hazard warnings, and other employees' rights announcements displayed in a prominent location.

    7. Egnor,

      Bill Ayers bears responsibility as a leader. However, that does not translate into "Bill Ayers killed Theodore Gold, Diana Oughton, and Terry Robbins." They were killed in an accident.

      Lying for (what you think is) a good cause is still lying. The ends do not justify the means. You should be ashamed of yourself, but you lack the degree of self-awareness.

    8. LOL, if the bombs had blown up their intended targets, Hoo would be claiming that the bombs themselves, rather than Bill Ayers, were had killed the soldiers' families.

    9. Your hypothetical is interesting, Deuce, but irrelevant. Egnor claims that Bill Ayers killed three specific people. Which he didn't.

  5. Egnor: Columbia professor Kathy Boudin

    An adjunct professor, to be exact. (As a department vice chair, surely you know there is a difference. Can't let it ruin your sound bite.) Boudin did her time, was paroled, can get on with her life.

    And most importantly, while serving her time in prison, Boudin did lots of volunteer social work helping other prisoners. This is precisely why she was got the adjunct position. In a school of social work.

    We can revisit your lies by omission if you wish.

    1. @Hoo: How many people did she murder?

      What is your threshold for murders in order to be on the Columbia faculty? Less than 4 murders is ok, but you're on a non-tenure track? You're allowed a maximum of 2 murders if you want tenure?

    2. You tell me, doc, how many people Boudin killed. (Hint. She was an accomplice but she was not the killer.)

    3. Hoo:

      She killed 2 police officers and a security guard in the Brink's Robbery in 1981. She feigned innocence when she was held at gunpoint by police officers and asked them to lower their guns, thereby enabling 6 of her fellow terrorists who were hiding to jump out and gun down the police officers. She was acting as a decoy to allow the gunmen to take out the cops.

      She is as responsible for the murders as are the other killers who pulled the triggers. She pled guilty to one count of felony murder and robbery.

      Why do you defend her so passionately?
