Remember Lee Harvey Oswald?

There’s a lot of this going around:

In the wake of a series of bomb scares targeting prominent Democrat leaders, Steve Schmidt, a former campaign strategist for the late Sen. John McCain (R-AZ), called President Donald Trump the “greatest demagogue” in U.S. history — who has stoked a “cold civil war.”

“Trump has stoked a cold civil war in this Country. His rallies brim with menace and he has labeled journalists as enemies of the people,” Schmidt began in a series of tweets Wednesday. “That someone would seek to kill their political enemies is not aberrational but rather the inevitable consequence of Trumps [sic] incitement.”

That — and the accompanying rush by leftists (media included, of course) to blame the “bomb scare” on right-wingers — reminds me of the immediate aftermath of the assassination of JFK. He must have been killed by a right-wing fanatic, spurred on by the “atmosphere of hate” in Dallas (right-wing hate, of course).

Well, Lee Harvey Oswald was no right-wing fanatic. Nor was he spurred on by the “atmosphere of hate” in Dallas. He was spurred on by his inner demons.

How did the media-invented “atmosphere of hate” cause Oswald to shoot JFK? By “atmospheric” induction? There’s a conspiracy theory for you.

One thought on “Remember Lee Harvey Oswald?

  1. [I wanted to post this on your article, “Who Shot JFK, and Why?”, but comments are now closed.]

    The United States House of Representatives Select Committee on Assassinations concluded that Kennedy was probably assassinated as a result of a conspiracy. There was no shortage of possible conspirators.

    The Mafia was angry over the closure of their casino operations in Cuba, and RFK’s endless investigations; the military was at odds with the administration’s goals in Southeast Asia; the CIA was afraid that JFK was going to dismantle the intelligence agency; financiers were concerned that Kennedy would abolish the Federal Reserve; Castro sought revenge for the attempts made on his life; and J. Edgar Hoover was being forced into early retirement.

    One person was interconnected with all of these elements — Lee Harvey Oswald. He claimed that he was a patsy, and may well have been. Jack Ruby’s “hit” was seemingly carried out to silence the stooge. Of course, the House Committee could not identify the conspirators because so many witnesses had died. We may never know the truth.
