JFK, Hitler, and Obama
Here it is, fifty-plus years after John F. Kennedy was elected president and the revelations are still dribbling out. Even though the writers of the history books and the readers of the news, the protectors of Kennedy’s fatuous fictions, did their jobs exceedingly well, the truth is a hard thing to wholly suppress. Here are some examples of things we now know about JFK that we didn’t once know: Kennedy was a meth head. Kennedy was a major league perv. Finally, a favorite fallback, that Kennedy prevented World War II and ushered in Civil Rights, has been shown to be a mega myth.
And now, a new revelation: pre-World War II, Kennedy was into Hitler. From the Daily Mail:
‘Fascism?’ wrote the youthful president-to-be in one [letter]. ‘The right thing for Germany.’
In another; ‘What are the evils of fascism compared to communism?’
And on August 21, 1937 – two years before the war that would claim 50 million lives broke out – he wrote: ‘The Germans really are too good – therefore people have ganged up on them to protect themselves.’
And in a line which seems directly plugged into the racial superiority line plugged by the Third Reich he wrote after travelling through the Rhineland: ‘The Nordic races certainly seem to be superior to the Romans.’
[Anyone] ‘Who has visited these two places [the German autobahns and Hitler’s holiday home in Berchtesgaden] can easily imagine how Hitler will emerge from the hatred currently surrounding him to emerge in a few years as one of the most important personalities that ever lived.’
So per Bill Clinton, as is depends on how you define it, so is the definition of Kennedy’s description of Hitler as an important personality.
And what will the story be on Barack Obama in fifty years, that is, besides his already-failed imperial presidency (for example, his completely dysfunctional big government agenda, his war on the First Amendment, the selective use of the IRS to persecute conservatives, his gun grab desires, the Benghazi debacle, his legislation via regulation, etc.)?
Beyond Obama’s failed record on governance, consider the impact of what might be be revealed in the President’s currently sealed records which include: college admissions forms, SAT/ACT/LSAT results, college transcripts, student writings, selective service forms, medical records, Illinois state senate records, and law client list.
Incredibly, as it regards Barack Obama, we still don’t know all that we don’t know.
It’s entirely possible that in 50 years, Obama will be the guy who makes the Kennedy presidency—despite the drugs, the sex revelations, the Hitler fondness, and the competence problems—look like Camelot by comparison.
Since Spamalot has already been taken, how about calling the era of Obama Scamalot?
