What’s the most shocking thing about the JFK Assassination?
Is it the assassination itself? Is it the fact that the true perpetrators got away with it?
Those are indeed shocking events and good choices, but that’s not the answer I’m looking for.
The most shocking thing for me is that the politicians of that day couldn’t have cared less who truly killed John Kennedy.
They quickly adapted to the new power structure and scurried to gain favor with it.
That’s your politician for you.
That’s how he or she thinks.
That’s how different he or she is from you.
It was regular people who investigated the truth about the JFK assassination.
They are the real heroes.
They put their lives on the line to defend an American ideal that our politicians only pay lip service to.
It wasn’t the main stream media who seriously challenged the Warren Commission findings.
The New York Times and Washington Post, the Volkischer Beobachters of our times, then as now were impressed with blue ribbon panels and select committees.
Oh no, they were one step behind the politicians in rallying around the new power structure.
As a matter of fact, they went out of their way to destroy people like Jim Garrison who were challenging the official narrative.
They also went after others like Mark Lane.
The people who ferreted out the truth in the Kennedy assassination weren’t necessarily detectives. They had to take time off from their day jobs to do what the main stream media should’ve done.
That’s another shocking thing about the Kennedy assassination.
Everything you now know about the Kennedy assassination that’s true was picked out and developed by regular people.
Media toadies like the New York Times and the Washington Post don’t care about the truth.
Challenging the truth might jeopardize their seat on Air Force One.
Politicians today don’t care about the truth either.
All they care about is staying in power.
The politicians back in the 60s were no different.
They had already adapted to the new power structure, and they weren’t interested in disrupting things.
If they made waves, then their committee chairmanships might be threatened.
So many of them kept quiet or put on the pretense of caring.
That pretense still exists today.
