Frank Rich is too Smart to say what he said on Maddow…
Last night on Rachel Maddow’s program, columnist Frank Rich made commentary about the parallels between the early sixties and the present day. He said that he can remember the vitriol and hatred the right had for President Kennedy. He likens that to what is happening now to our current president.
Then he made a comment that the conservative attacks led to the assasination of President Kennedy. That is a lie. Lee Harvey Oswald was a leftist, former defector to the Soviet Union. He was a communist, not a right winger. That Rich is bringing the old saw about the right being responsible for the killing of President Kennedy is patently false. And the way in which Rich skirted around that proves he knows its false as well.
I confess, I tend to agree with Rich’s point-of-view in regard to the arts and entertainment. He is a damn good theatre columnist and reviewer. But last night he confirmed himself as having the same leftist mendacious streak as is practiced on MSNBC every night. That is too bad.
