Who killed Kennedy?
« on: January 07, 2018, 12:42:25 AM »
I am back after an extended absence.

In your educated opinion, who killed JFK? Was it several gunmen as opposed to Lee Harvey Oswald?

Was it the Mob? The CIA? Cuban Exiles?

For some reason I have doubts it was anyone but Lee Harvey Oswald, no conspiracy no nothing.

I just think that a conspiracy would have emerged by now,and quite frankly, JFK was not progressive or revolutionary enough to warrant an assasnation by the powers that be.

Oswald killed JFK.  It’s been proven over and over.  Give up - you are chasing a wild goose in a sleigh pulled by 8 March hares.

I've always been partial to DiMaggio going through the mob to put a hit on him over Marilyn.

Not that I believe it, it's just satisfyingly outlandish.

Americans are particularly fond of, and subject to, believing in conspiracy theories.  Black helicopters from Area 51, UFO abductors, Bush planned 911,  Obama is a Kenyan Muslim, One world order................................and on and on.

I think that a good conversation could be made for the underlying causes of our penchant for unbelief. 

Fear of the unknown for starters.   The Puritans who had been conspiracy-fearing truth tellers even before they turned themselves into Americans,became fantastically so. They had escaped one unholy conspiracy-the Antichrist and his popish confederates who were running the English churches. ....only to find themselves on the western front of the global holy war.  They had made the difficult but thrilling pilgrimage from the frying pan into a terrible but thrilling fire. Governor Increase Mathers' son Cotton Mather after his father the most famous American Puritan minister, described the "Droves of devils in our way" as demons in the shape of the armed indians. 

We imported conspiracy theories even as we first became Americans.

Plus America (though the word does not appear on the Statue of Liberty) for a while welcomed the persecuted of Europe, people so steeped in centuries of intrigue, as victims, it must have been almost genetic to see it as normal. Russia still suffers the syndrome to this day.

Be interesting to see a correlation between ethnic origin and succeptibility to conspiracy theory. Those times were not that many generations ago.

Steinbeck had similar ideas, especially pertaining to the way we move all over the damn place.

There is no way the mafia killed JFK.

Maybe Giancana was angry over JFK doing naughty things with his mistress, Judith Exner, and maybe there was some anger of them thinking JFK  would be their "man" (given Joe Kennedy's connection with the mob).

But they liked JFK. He had "Class" and they never would want to kill him. It would put more fire their way than they already had.

What of the CIA? there is a theory JFK wanted to "scatter them to the winds" so a powerful government coup took him out!

Always question all authorities because the authority you don't question is the most dangerous... except me, never question me.
