Ray Marcus: The Left and the Death of Kennedy

Very revealing personal odyssey type of essay. Great comments by supposed left luminaries who all found ways to avoid the facts of the case.
Leave it to the director of the top investigative unit in the country, J. Edgar Hoover (FBI), to proclaim rather prematurely in both President Kennedy's murder and that of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.s, that there was no conspiracy involved. Void of a genuine investigation in either case, How could Hoover be so sure?

That said, in respect to prominent members of the Left turning a blind eye to what really happened on Friday, November 22, 1963 in Dallas, Texas, the thing that most men lack (Right-wingers and Lefties alike) is the courage to stand alone. Courage like that doesn't grow on trees.

No wonder one of the things President Kennedy admired most in others was courage. The 1960's could have used more than a few Nathan Hales, but instead found itself with say nothing, see nothing, hear nothing types (many a men have simply gone along with the status-quo rather than upset the apple cart).
The I F Stone episode is really something I think.

Here is a guy who was looked up to for decades, especially by liberal reporters types. Like Carl Bernstein.

And he completely took a dive on the JFK case. Just disgraceful.
Unfortunately, I. F. Stone, rather than support the courageous efforts of Thomas G. Buchanan, Mark Lane, etc., immediately jumped on the rush to judgment band-wagon that convicted the wrongfully accused before all the facts were even in. As far as Mr. Bernstein goes, How does the genuine Left know for sure he isn't fulfilling a role for a certain Agency that openly brags about owning the media? A certain Agency that promotes "revealing" some information under the ploy of "limited hang-out" tactics.

Thank goodness for all of the private, independent research and researchers in this case who aren't beholden to the merchants of thirty pieces of silver.
