Now that the RFK tragedy is being bandied about, how about RFK Jr.?

oh, no-o-o-o-o-ooooo... we certainly wouldn't want to give HIM any media exposure...! heavens to murgatroyd, no...! doing THAT might get people all stirred up or, worse yet, THINKING...!

How it all went wrong

It's headline news today that some people are outraged by Hilary Clinton's reference to the assassination of Robert F. Kennedy.

The current clamor is remarkable especially when you consider the following three real outrages.

The US news media:

1. Has never shown any interest in getting to the bottom of who killed Robert F. Kennedy.

Instead they repeat the preposterous story that he was shot in the back of the head at close range by someone ten feet in front of him.

2. They never refer to what he stood for including his opposition to the Vietnam war, his skepticism about the need for the US to support Israel, and his intention to continue his brother's work.

3. And they never, never comment on Kennedy's positive legacy.

In these three ways, the US news media continues the work of the 1968 assassins whose mission was to silence Kennedy and remove his ideas from debate.

Part of a man's legacy are his children.

Robert F. Kennedy Jr. - RFK's son - is an informed, insightful, well-spoken - and very effective - environmental and political activist.

How often do you see him on US news programs? How often is he asked for his opinions on talk shows?

Just about never.

There's a reason for that.

This video makes it clear what that reason is.

i'm quite frankly stunned... rfk jr., up until this moment, has been almost invisible to me, and i consider myself among the better informed of my fellow citizens... watching the video clip, i couldn't help but think of patrick fitzgerald and how effective HE would be if he ever decided to show us that he actually has a pair...
