He Said That? 8/22/17

Here it is, in cold, hard black-and-white prose, a damning indictment of President John F. Kennedy in his own words. From a dinner honoring Nobel Prize Winners April 29, 1962:

I want to tell you how welcome you are to the White House. I think this is the most extraordinary collection of talent, of human knowledge, that has ever been gathered together at the White House, with the possible exception of when Thomas Jefferson dined alone.

Someone once said that Thomas Jefferson was a gentleman of 32 who could calculate an eclipse, survey an estate, tie an artery, plan an edifice, try a cause, break a horse, and dance the minuet. Whatever he may have lacked, if he could have had his former colleague, Mr. Franklin, here we all would have been impressed.

Irrefutable proof: John F. Kennedy praised Thomas Jefferson, white slave owner and perhaps the paramour of some of his female slaves. Kennedy may not have known about the paramour part, but he certainly knew Jefferson was a slave owner. Kennedy Airport, Kennedy Center, thousands of schools and streets: erase the name of this obvious racist who praised a slave owner. No historical sin is too small that it should not be rectified after the fact by erasing all memorials to—in a better world all memories of—the sinner. To be replaced, of course, by those many historical figures who were perfect.

    What “paramour”???? Thetest was on mitochondrial meaning anyone born to the same matrilineal ancestresses could have “supplied” it. At the time, Jefferson’s brother was widely thought to have dallied with the mulatto females. In other words, it wasn’t Thomas.

  18. Robert,

    I’m stealing your stuff.

    And I’ll obviously let the audience know you were the miner of this gold.

    Of course I’m a Kennedy guy though, they, (oops there was just one guy, Mr Oswald) shot him for a reason, he may have actually been on the side of the citizens of this collection of states.

    I’m not sure that has happened since 22 November 1963. Nor do I look for it to happen any time soon.

    “The great enemy of the truth is very often not the lie—deliberate, contrived, and dishonest, but the myth—persistent, persuasive, and unrealistic. Belief in myths allows the comfort of opinion without the discomfort of thought.”

    “In keeping silent about evil, in burying it so deep within us that no sign of it appears on the surface, we are implanting it, and it will rise up a thousand fold in the future. When we neither punish nor reproach those who have perpetrated evil deeds, we are not simply protecting their trivial old age, we are thereby ripping the foundations of justice from beneath new generations.”
    –Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn, The Gulag Archipelago

    “Political tags – such as royalist, communist, democrat, populist, fascist, liberal, conservative, and so forth – are never basic criteria. The human race divides politically into those who want people to be controlled and those who have no such desire. The former are idealists acting from highest motives for the greatest good of the greatest number. The latter are surly curmudgeons, suspicious and lacking in altruism. But they are more comfortable neighbors than the other sort.”
    –Robert Heinlein

    Some thoughts for you Robert…
