WASHINGTON, November 24, 2013 — There was no Tea Party in 1963, but the Tea Party must have had its roots in Dallas in 1963. That, anyway, is the conclusion of a bizarre column in the Washington Post by Bill Minutaglio, a left-wing journalism professor at the University of Texas.
Liberals cannot be trusted with government nor should they be trusted with history.
Over the last few days, as America has remembered the 50th anniversary of President John F. Kennedy’s assassination, the left has been working overtime to rewrite the history of the times.
The left makes villains of those it hates. It hates the Tea Party, so somehow the Kennedy assassination was the Tea Party’s fault.
Facts are confusing things for liberals. Kennedy’s assassin was Lee Harvey Oswald. Oswald did not want to start a Tea Party. He was not a Republican or a follower of the Founding Fathers. He did not walk around with a Constitution in his back pocket.
Lee Harvey Oswald was a full-fledged Communist.
Oswald found America so objectionable that he left America, tried to renounce his citizenship and moved to the Soviet Union. He eventually moved back to America where he founded the New Orleans chapter of the “Fair Play for Cuba Committee,” A pro-Communist, pro-Castro group.
If you listen to the left wing media, Kennedy was a martyr for the liberal cause. If you listen to the left wing media, Oswald was driven to kill Kennedy by the hatred and intolerance that pervaded the Dallas air and animated the people of Texas. They fail to mention that Kennedy carried Texas in the 1960 election.
The Washington Post was not the only paper pushing the propaganda that Kennedy was the victim of rightwing hatred. The New York Times in its opinion pages told the same story, with a bizarre rant called, “The City with a Death Wish in Its Eye.”
Even Sunday’s USA Today featured a selection of sermons preached by Dallas Ministers. They were almost all liberal ministers who parroted the liberal line that “intolerance” killed John F. Kennedy.
No, a sick Marxist named Lee Harvey Oswald killed Kennedy.
Today, 50 years afterwards, people forget the timeline of what happened in Dallas in 1963.
Oswald was in custody within 90 minutes of the assassination. He remained in the custody of the Dallas Police for two days until Jack Ruby killed him while he was being moved to another facility. While he was held, Oswald was interrogated multiple times. He denied killing Kennedy and asked for a lawyer — and not just any lawyer. The lawyer he asked for was the chief counsel for the Communist Party USA.
During Oswald’s interrogation, one of the police officers asked him if he was a communist. Oswald replied, “I’m not a communist. I’m a Marxist.”
In criminal cases, prosecutors look for a motive to explain why something happened. Sometimes finding the motive is easy, as when the suspect confesses. Sometimes it has to be deduced from circumstantial evidence.
The circumstantial evidence in the Kennedy assassination is pretty compelling. Oswald was a Marxist and had been aligned with pro-Communist groups working on behalf of Castro’s Cuba. Kennedy had stood against communism, against Castro, and had forced the Soviet Union to back down in the Cuban missile crisis.
If you wonder why the mainstream media are pretty much a joke today, look at their coverage of the Kennedy assassination anniversary.
For outlets like the New York Times, the motto is now, “All the propaganda that is unfit to print.”
