Dallas, JFK, and the Left's Descent Into Madness

Very good and very tart piece by Jeffrey Lord over at the American Spectator. I'm not completely sure it synthesizes into a specific point, but it's good just the same.


Left-on-left violence became the dirty little secret of the left-tilting national media. It is never mentioned, still ignored as an unpleasant truth by such as Paul Krugman and the purveyors of left-wing ideological pornography at MSNBC. It is also, most embarrassingly, never honestly discussed by JFK's descendants when the surely still-painful subject of the assassination arises. Today, were he alive, Lee Harvey Oswald would surely be treated by the left as is Robert Kennedy's killer -- a celebrated "political prisoner" honored, as was Sirhan by Obama friend Bill Ayers, for his murderous deed.

Make no mistake.

The poisoning of the public debate that has taken place this last week since the Giffords' shooting, led by Mr. Krugman, is a reminder of the violent tendencies of the American Left. Mr. Krugman's idea of what "constitutes justice" for the Left is a reminder in spades. A sharp reminder of just when and how America was dragged in the first place from the stirring JFK call to "ask what you can do for your country" to violent, angry leftist fantasies featuring Rush Limbaugh or Sarah Palin or George Bush or Dick Cheney.


...

America entered nut country that November 22. The nut country of left-wing violence and its left-wing media enablers from the New York Times to MSNBC to commentators Matthews, Krugman, Kennedy, Frank Rich and the violence celebrated by such as the poster "Blueboy" at the Daily Kos (the latter of whom posted of Gabrielle Giffords before the shooting: "My CongressWOMAN voted against Nancy Pelosi! And is now DEAD to me!").

The door to nut country was opened barely three years after John F. Kennedy was inaugurated with such glittering hope. That door was opened by Lee Harvey Oswald. A Marxist. A man of the Left. The American Left in this instance. Waiting in the shadows of the immutable trademark violent tradition of leftists in America and around the globe.

An American leftist targeting the most famous American liberal of the day pulled the trigger that killed John F. Kennedy. Murderously ending a presidency that began with such golden promise fifty years ago this week.

The American Left's descent into madness had begun.

There's an old slogan on the left: "No enemies to the left." No enemies, no matter how awful some people are; we're all united in leftism. Any and all villains must be found on the right.

Thanks to Pocono Joe.
