1968 RFK Murder was First US Terror Attack

Democrat US senator Robert F. Kennedy was assassinated in California on June 5, 1968. His killer was an anti-Israel militant named Sirhan Sirhan who was born in Palestine and was a citizen of the nation of Jordan (which is next to Israel in the Middle East). Sirhan was living in Los Angeles with his extended family.

In Sirhan’s private papers police found written threats against Kennedy. He hated Kennedy for supporting Israel. Thus Kennedy’s killing was the first major terrorist attack in the US related to the Middle East.

Sirhan shot Kennedy as Kennedy departed a political rally through the kitchen of the Ambassador Hotel in Los Angeles after Kennedy had won the California primary in his presidential bid of 1968. It was a gross security lapse that allowed an armed man to wait in ambush in the Ambassador kitchen despite concerns by Kennedy’s staff about weak security policies at the event.

In short, we can deter crime and terrorism easily. All we have to do is be vigilant and sensible.

Yet who today is seeking to weaken our defenses against Islamists who wish to kill us? And against illegal immigrants by the millions, including 300,000 in our prisons and hundreds of thousands of illegal criminals roaming free within the US? Who released 169 convicted immigrant murderers from US prisons? Here is The Daily Caller reporting on August 22, 2014 about that travesty:

President Barack Obama’s deputies released at least 169 foreign murderers into 24 states last year. The data shows the ZIP codes where the foreign murderers were released back into American society.

Indeed it is Obama and the Democrats and the liberals who let these people run free. It is leftists who want open borders and tell us not to worry. It is DemonCrats who allow more and more illegal immigrants and Muslim refugees to enter the US even though we have increasing proof that immigrants have bad people among them, and that many Muslims want to harm us and that terrorists are infiltrating refugee populations.

We know this after repeated terror attacks by Muslims within the US under Obama including Fort Hood (2009), the Boston Marathon (2013), Chattanooga, Tennessee (Summer 2015), the San Bernardino, California attack of December 2, 2015, the June 2016 attack on the Pulse nightclub in Orlando, Florida, and others.

Yet when we conservatives speak out repeatedly about the need to increase security for our homeland and in our daily lives in order to deter crime and terrorism we are shouted down, ignored, ridiculed and called names.

Let us now consider what happened immediately after president John F. Kennedy was assassinated in Dallas, Texas on November 22, 1963. Before Kennedy killer Lee Harvey Oswald was taken into police custody and became known to the world, people were interviewed all over the US about Kennedy’s murder.

Most of them, including the media, reflexively fingered white Texas conservatives for killing Kennedy, blaming “segregationist crackpots” and “ultra-conservatives” for the assassination. Yet Oswald was a committed communist who had lived in the Soviet Union for four years. He even was well-known to FBI for his pro-communist, pro-Cuba activities and advocacy.

When Oswald was questioned by reporters after being arrested he offered a smug and calm defense for himself, saying, “I protest this police brutality” and “I am not resisting arrest” and “I would like some legal representation” and “I am just a patsy” and that “a policeman hit me”.

We hear this reflexive arrogance every day from criminals who have been coached by American liberals and the ACLU in how to deflect responsibility for their crimes, and to always play the victim.

Then we know that Oswald himself was shot dead when lax Dallas police security allowed his killer Jack Ruby to lie in wait for Oswald to appear at police headquarters.

Thus over and over we see that we can have all the security we want if we just use common sense.

At the same time liberals often use incendiary language that creates tension among Americans like black Democrat congresswoman Maxine Waters calling Republicans “demons”. This is code language to tell young black thugs to attack or kill white people with impunity since Republicans are mostly white people.

Here is another example. This is an excerpt from Robert F. Kennedy’s speech on April 4, 1968 to a black crowd in Indianapolis announcing to them that Martin Luther King had been shot and killed just a few hours before. Kennedy said:

Martin Luther King dedicated his life to love and to justice between fellow human beings. He died in the cause of that effort. In this difficult day, in this difficult time for the United States, it’s perhaps well to ask what kind of a nation we are and what direction we want to move in. For those of you who are black — considering the evidence evidently is that there were white people who were responsible (for King’s assassination) — you can be filled with bitterness, and with hatred, and a desire for revenge…. For those of you who are black and are tempted to fill with — be filled with hatred and mistrust of the injustice of such an act, against all white people, I would only say that I can also feel in my own heart the same kind of feeling. I had a member of my family (president Kennedy) killed but he was killed by a white man.

This speech has been praised to the heavens as another Kennedy masterpiece but it really was horribly malicious. Why? Because at the time that Kennedy gave that speech nobody had any idea who had killed King, yet Kennedy used the speech to accuse “white people” and turn it into a brazen racial accusation. If Kennedy were a decent human being he would have used the speech to memorialize and respect King. Instead he turned it into an abhorrent racial taunt.

Even today the murder of King is a subject of heated debate. Then remember that the black American Muslim leader Malcolm X was killed by blacks, and that 97% of the murders of blacks in America today are at the hands of other blacks. Yet Democrats are always eager to imply that all blacks are victims of white people.

Thus the Indianapolis speech was shameful political pandering by Kennedy who used the speech to incite racial hatred, promote his political agenda and to aggrandize himself as a racial healer. After all Kennedy was seeking the presidency that same year.

In 2010 Obama told an hispanic audience to “punish your enemies”. This was one of the most despicable phrases ever uttered by a US president, but typical of a hard-leftist provocateur and instigator like Obama. He learned this technique in his days as a community agitator in Chicago.

Leftists instigate most American crime in many other ways, like through the media. The Columbine high school killers of 1999 were obsessed with and acting out a violent Hollywood film called Natural Born Killers, which was made by left-wing director Oliver Stone.

One specific Wikipedia page notes 14 copycat crimes tied to Natural Born Killers, with dozens of people killed. There certainly are many other crimes tied to the film that we do not know about. Yet you can rest assured that Oliver Stone gives all of his campaign contributions to “peaceful” Democrats who want gun control.

How about “gun control” in Hollywood films? So that gun violence will not be glorified as it is over and over and over in films like Natural Born Killers and hundreds of others?

No, then the wealthy Hollywood elites would not make the big profits that they get from this gratuitous violence.
