The Hate-Filled Right Wing

Posted: January 12, 2011 by veeshir in Uncategorized

The American Thinker has a quiz on hate speech. It’s illuminating if fairly easy.

Think of it as a counterpoint to this bit of drivel from RFK, Jr. (yeah Hot Air link, but the other options are to his article or to the puppy blender’s link to Hot Air) about how right wing hate speech killed his father.

As a bit of  personal history I’ll explain something here.

If you read the RFK piece, realize that my mother absolutely believed every word of that, with one refinement.

Take this passage that Allah quotes, I’ll add my mother’s additions in bold.

He found Dallas’ streets packed five deep with Kennedy Democrats, but among them were the familiar ornaments of presidential hatred; Cowboy fans with high-flying confederate flags and hundreds of posters adorning the walls and streets of Dallas showing Jack’s picture inscribed with “Wanted for Treason.” and a big Star. Tom Landry and Roger Staubach were particularly vocal in their objections to Kennedy coming to the same state as Irving and Cowboys stadium.

I’m not joking in the least. It used to embarrass me when I was a teenager but before and after that I actually egged her on to explain it to people. She would explain, in detail, exactly why the Cowboys engendered a climate where killing Kennedy was not just not frowned upon but actually expected.

At least I just hate them in relation to football and refs cheating for them.

    A friend of mine could go on and on, perfectly straightfaced, about how Ma Bell had Kennedy killed. I have to say, he was quite persuasive.

    We all know it was the American Beef Council!

    I should be surprised that nobody corrected my error above, it was RFK’s uncle he was talking about, not his father.

    But then, for someone to point that out they’d have to read the blog and that’s just expecting too much.
