November is about JFK, but the Progs have it al wrong.

Every November the progs go all batshit over JFK. All the usual conspiracy theories and fantasies about how things were or would have been get dragged out, and we get clubbed over the head with them. The left has worked hard to create the illusion that JFK was a far greater president and man than history bears out. Mythological heroes serve the cause well, and to me at least, JFK is the prototypical mythological hero.

If you hear the left talking about JFK these days, it was like Jesus was killed all over again. Not only do they want you to believe that had he lived that he would have recreated heaven on earth, but that his legacy are the things being done by people like Obama. Nothing can be further from the truth. First off, I doubt JFK would want to be associated with today’s democratic party and/or the progressive movement. For all his faults, JFK knew communism and collectivism in general were evil things. He would have been disgusted by the beliefs the modern left holds today. Especially their hatred of America and American exceptionalism. JFK almost started WW3 because he knew that if he gave in to communists and let them put missiles in Cuba, he would be putting our way of life in jeopardy. He didn’t trust those evil bastards and what they believed in. Today’s left still expends massive effort to pretend that the Soviet Union wasn’t a big deal and that they actually weren’t that bad. Some even will tell you they feel the wrong side won the Cold War, as the Soviets were far better stewards of mankind or some such nonsense. Just like they spend massive effort pretending Hitler’s fascism was rightwing when it clearly is just the other side of the collectivist coin. Just because it wasn’t communism doesn’t make it right wing.

More importantly, I have always believed that the left has been so enamored with all the conspiracy theories about the Kennedy assassinations precisely because it would otherwise have to admit that JFK was murdered by someone that shared practically the same beliefs held by today’s left: Lee Harvey Oswald a self-avowed communist and America hater. Oswald was one of them. They can pretend otherwise, but that’s a fact. And Oswald killed Kennedy because he not only wasn’t, but because he was fighting them.

The progs should give Kennedy a rest. He would more likely than not hold nothing but derision for them and their beliefs anyway. If you want to honor JFK, focus on finding out how the left took such a left turn from the things he believed in, and landed exactly where the person that ended up murdering him came from, and work your way back to reality. Collectivism sucks. Kennedy wasn’t the mythical creature they made him out to be. And mor eimportant of all: he would not recognize the current democratic party.

    I can’t stand the Camelot bullshit. Kennedy was from one of the wealthiest and most powerful families in America, a family that built their wealth on corruption and swindling and influence-peddling. His father was a known Nazi sympathizer. He might have been the best of a bad bunch. But the pretense his death — which was awful — somehow destroyed our innocence is Baby Boomer mythmaking.

    And the more I look at it, the more obvious it becomes that Oswald acted alone. The accidental secret service agent theory is a little less stupid, but still stupid (http://www.philly.com/philly/news/Shooting_holes_in_theory_that_a_Secret_Service_agent_killed_President_Kennedy.html).

    Wasn’t going to go there Hal, but I believe had he lived he would have gone down as another mediocre president. As you pointed out his family is all fucked up and got rich doing illegal shit. The guy had a drug, booze, and women problem. He was way in over his head. The left idolozes him precisely because they can create a myth around him. Unfortunately they also misinform people when they pretend Kennedy would agree with them in any way based on their adoption of values that are so anti-American and anti-capitalism.

    Anyone still pretending Oswald didn’t do this, and do it alone, is doing so because they need an out foor the fact someone that shares their ideology killed their mythical hero. That’s how I see it, and I have yet to get it wrong when I drilled the leftists about this issue.

    Ironic – JFK’s fucktard of an old man despised him. Joe Junior was supposed to be president, after dear old dad of course – when his plane vanished and pops was left with just his excess, disappointing sons that were just around to fill in the background for his #1 boy, he just drudged them up and gave them marching orders. Hell, he most likely would have killed Ted at infancy if he’d known what a complete alcoholic fuckup commie he turned out to be.

    Nor do progtards want to hear the less flattering truths about the Kennedy clan – the wealth acquired by bootlegging and insider trading, connections to the mob, lobotomizing the sister they essentially denied having, lots of whores, drug use, hidden chronic illnesses that would have meant JFK was pretty much unelectable at the time, drunk little Ted letting his pregnant girlfriend drown in his car while he walked around in a scared drunken stupor trying to figure out how to get out of this one, and dear old dad’s meddling in European politics while ambassador and getting tossed out of the UK.

    Yeah, the Kennedy’s are obviously heroes….
