15. Terminated With Extreme Prejudice

We saw who was killed, JFK, MLK, RFK, boom, boom, boom, in the space of about 4 1/2 years. Progressives all.

JFK had to be stopped. A WWII hero, a man who bought into the cold war until the Cuban Missile thing in 1962. That scared Kennedy and caused him to quickly turn against the permanent war machine. Two remarkable speeches not long before he died sealed his fate and the fate of the patsy set up to take the rap, LHO.

In comes LBJ and the war machine chugs forward, killing and maiming more and more and for what? The push against the war drove LBJ to not run in 1968 which opened a door for RFK. As he and MLK rallied people against the insanity of that war they got whacked in quick order.

In comes Tricky Dick and the dead/maimed piled up for another 5 or so years.

It isn't like people didn't shoot at Ford and Reagan but they were the actual lone nuts....two attempts on Ford but never hit, one on Ronnie that he survived.

Those three killings in the 60s changed things to the extreme.
