"That being John F. Kennedy, who was gunned down in Dallas, of course. I've been thinking a lot of Kennedy and Dallas as I've watched the increasingly violent rhetorical attacks on Obama be unfurled. As Americans yank their kids of class in order to save them from being exposed to the President of the United States who only wanted to urge them to excel in the classroom. And as unvarnished hate and name-calling passed for health care 'debate' this summer. The radical right, aided by a GOP Noise Machine that positively dwarfs what existed in 1963, has turned demonizing Obama--making him into a vile object of disgust--into a crusade. It's a demented national jihad, the likes of which this country has not seen in modern times. But I've been thinking about Dallas in 1963 because I've been recalling the history and how that city stood as an outpost for the radical right, which never tried to hide its contempt for the New England Democrat. Now, in this this month's Vanity Fair, Sam Kashner offers up in rich detail the hatred that ran wild in Dallas in 1963. To me, the similarity between Dallas in 1963 and today's unhinged Obama hate is downright chilling."Right. Talk about "Paranoia". Of course this is just the latest in scare tactics from the left to help squelch growing public dissatisfaction with Barack Obama. The design is obvious, to tie in critical talk of Obama and his socialist agenda into a "hate crime", thus "illegal", a typical socialist move. Demonize your opponents. Of course point of history, Lee Harvey Oswald wasn't a "right winger" by any stretch of the imagination, which is a fact MM leaves out of the post. Which kinda destroys the whole crazy idea. But that's never stopped MM before.
