That must be what Boehlert is getting at when he invokes the spectre of Dallas, 1963, right? (Either that, or he believes Oliver Stone’s JFK was a documentary.)
Update: Beohlert can’t bring himself to mention the word “Oswald,” but one of his readers tries to make the connection between radical-right Kennedy-hatred and the President’s murder by a guy who’d defected to the USSR:
If there is a pervasive orchestrated campaign against the president, some wacko may just decide the enemy of my enemy is correct… It could definetely be argued that the environment in Dallas encouraged Oswald. Inspite of the ideological differences between him and the hate speech originators. He didn’t have to attend meetings to agree with it, and become inspired by the seemingly mundane dissent all around him.
Presumably it’s Bircher propaganda that also convinced Oswald to take a shot at radical right-winger Edwin Walker the previous April, too.
