The Political Economy of November 22
"JFK's assassination was not a Red plot or a violation of liberal virtue"
In a new essay for Defector, Noah Kulwin explores how The JFK Assassination Still Keeps Some Secrets. He extracts the story of November 22 from the genre of true crime or conspiracy and situates it in the political economy of the day. He is especially good on explicating the “darker quadrants” of covert action and organized crime from which Kennedy’s assassination emanated. And Kulwin explains why the notion draws organized resistance today.
This year, for the first time, that majority became a mere plurality, falling to 50 percent, according to a reputable pollster sympathetic to JFK assassination researchers. Rather than vindicating proud defenders of the Warren Report, most notably the journalist Gerald Posner, this survey represents the mighty power of a government narrative that is supported both informally and (as credibly alleged by Alec Baldwin, among others) doctrinally across establishment media. Once held up as a potential antidote to this kind of brute force historical record entrenchment, digital tools have repeatedly proven every bit as capable of reinforcing state control as they are at weakening it. What is to be done, then, is to crash this dialectic and explain the JFK assassination as a historical phenomenon, rather than as mere violation of liberal virtue, or a Red plot, or the outgrowth of various emotional derangements, and thereby give us something useful to say about the here and now.
—The JFK Assassination Still Keeps Some Secrets.
One thing I've noticed among those who support the Warren Commission is they are in one way, or another tied to the Establishment. Supporting the Official Story is to be considered socially acceptable among mainstream society, but there is another reason as well. It's done more for career success and protecting one's professional reputation. Even prominent "progressives" such as Phillip Shenon, Michael Isikoff, David Corn, and Noam Chomsky unquestioningly back the "Lone Nut" myth. They know that openly challenging the Government's story could cost them their position and lose access to publishers, the media, political influencers, speaking engagements, and the grants they so desperately need to survive.
Its not about politics, its more about having access to power.
The polls show that more Republicans than Democrats disbeleive the Warren/MSM theory of the lone nut.
This may be Republicans being distrustful of centralized government, as they are. It may also reflect that most gun owners and hunters vote Republican.
Whenever I am asked why I think shots were fired from the front, I assume my audience has no knowledge of forensic medicine or accoustics. But they have all seen the Z film. Hunters know that game does not move in the direction of the shooter. Z 313 and its sequence make it clear to anyone familiar with firearms and/or hunting that a frontal shot caused that wound.
Thank God for the Republicans. They may screw up (they often do), but sometimes it's good to have someone along who knows bulls from bullshit.
And, Gerald Ford, stop moving entrance wounds to suit your theory. A T-2 back wound does not exit above the knot of a necktie. A cowlick entrance wound would blow out the face of the victim.
The medical evidence is a sham, and any honest physician will tell you so.
