Response to Waiting For Everyman (Reply #5)

8. They're trying to put an ''End of Days'' on liberal ideas and the New Deal...

The Cato Institute, which with the Heritage Foundation also seems to provide dear author Swanson a sinecure, was started with Koch Brothers funding. Kochs, of course, got their money from dear old dad, who helped start the John Birch society. Surprising history, considering how he got his money off government contracts and selling the Soviet Union oil drilling apparatus and such.

So if conservatives -- the bankster and warmonger class of Have-Mores serviced by the BFEE -- can lay claim on JFK, they can grab the attention of a surprising number of people and say JFK was "a real conservative, just like them." Works wonders -- especially on people who don't like to read.

ETA: Even the title of Swanson's book omits the fact the guy's title is PRESIDENT John F. Kennedy. Smart propagandists, they are -- the best money can buy.
