Liberal revisionist history: The Tea Party killed John F. Kennedy

If history is so good to liberals, why are they always trying to rewrite it? Photo: AP

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.”

Judson Phillips is the founder of Tea Party Nation, one of the largest Tea Party Groups in the country and the number one national tea party site on the Internet.

A lawyer by profession, Judson has been involved in politics since his teens. “Ronald Reagan inspired me,” he says.

Judson became involved in the Tea Party movement in February 2009 after hearing Rick Santelli’s rant on CNBC.   “I heard there was going to be a Tea Party in Chicago inspired by Santelli, but didn’t know if anyone was doing a rally in Nashville where I was based.  Finally I emailed Michelle Malkin and asked her if there was a Tea Party in Nashville.  Malkin sent an email back saying, ‘No, why don’t you organize one?’  I did.”

The first Tea Party in Nashville was held late February 2009 which drew a crowd of about 600. Judson then organized the Tax Day Tea Party in Nashville, which drew over 10,000 people into downtown.   It was at this time that Tea Party Nation was formed.  Later that year, Judson decided to bring activists from across the country together, so he organized the first National Tea Party Convention in February 2010, which featured Alaska’s former Governor and Republican Vice Presidential Nominee, Sarah Palin as it’s keynote speaker.

He currently manages the Tea Party Nation website, writes several daily columns and is working on more projects than any one person should.  He is a frequent guest on cable and broadcast news shows, including on Fox, MSNBC, CNN and others.
