The JFK Assassination: 48 Years Later and We’re Still Asking Why?
On Nov 22, 1963, President Kennedy was assassinated. "Why? The how and the who is just scenery for the public... keeps 'em guessing to prevent them from asking the real question, why?" Lines made famous by X, one of the characters in Oliver Stones’ film JFK are just as relevant today as they were in 1963.
Why was Kennedy assassinated? A better question might be why all the efforts to keep Oswald's communist connections suppressed while perpetuating proven false conspiracy claims about magic bullets and grassy knolls?
Lee Harvey Oswald was a self proclaimed Marxist. At the age of 16 he contacted the Socialist Party of America. In Oct. 1959, he defected to the Soviet Union. In April 1963, Oswald opened a New Orleans branch of the Fair Play for Cuba Committee and granted two honorary memberships to Gus Hall and Benjamin Davis, senior members of the American Communist Party. Prior to assassinating President Kennedy, Oswald planned and attempted to carry out a failed assassination plot against Major General Edwin Walker, an out spoken critic of organized labor and rabid anti-communist. Recently released CIA documents concerning LCIMPROVE detail Oswald's involvement with Soviets in an effort to out American intelligence officers.
Oswald was one of the most successful members or a long line of socialist/communist traitors that have been attacking this country from within for more than a hundred years, attacks that began in April 1919.
In April 1919 at least 36 mail bombs were sent to a supreme court justice, the governor of Mississippi, the US Attorney General, the Postmaster General, congressmen, senators, other justice officials, newspapers, and businessmen like John D Rockefeller and JP Morgan. The bombs were sent by a group of Bolshevik communist members of the organized labor movement and were intended to be delivered and detonated on May 1st, a day celebrated as an international day of socialist revolution.
Since the fall of the Soviet Union, Americans have been less vigilant towards the spread of communism. Today we have self-proclaimed socialists like Congressmen Rev. Emmanuel Cleaver (D-MO) serving in the federal government. Even our educational system is overrun by socialists who teach our children that capitalism is evil.
On this, the 48th anniversary or the assassination of President John F Kennedy, it is more important than ever to recognize that the very real socialist threat to the American way of life still exists and is growing ever more influential.
