    ABC’s Amanpour Links JFK/RFK Assassinations to Today’s ‘Political Atmosphere’

    Link

    This has no text, it's a video.

    The MSM types just can't stop this insanity, trying to tie some more things in with the Gifford murder attempt.

    That doesn't make any sense. Loughner isn't a communist, nor a muslim.

    I just watched it and she (Amanpour) simply posed a question asking if the political atmosphere is similar in regards to assassination attempts.

    I viewed no insanity ... just a question posed in a non partisan manner.

    I'm guessing it makes "sense" to liberals/leftists........somehow?

    I was talking about the rest of us, out here in the real world. I already knew it made sense to the Leftists. Hell, that's a given.

    Hey, another member of the media who can barely understand history. How unpredictable!
    Good God, woman, the 1960s were far worse in terms of domestic unrest.

    She was asking about political climate and there was nothing partisan or baiting in the question or the answer. In reality there is a similarity (random nuts with mental issues target politicians with assassination attempts). Just like hacks on the left tried to blame Palin ( and trust me I have no respect for Palin) a lie is a lie.

    However, the hacks like Breibart or Olberman (right and left examples) will try to make something where there is nothing.

    Briebart is a hack ...plain and simple ... they exist on both sides and he is a prime example.

    A hack calls out another actual journalist who asked an open ended question?

    This is what really blows my mind.

    Do people really not remember what happened in the 60's and 70's? They made this **** look like, well, like a tea party.
    People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.

    Journalism has died.
    And again, that point was absolutely ridiculous as well. You had the awful events surrounding a bourgeoning Civil Rights Movement, a President assassinated, a divisive Black power leader assassinated, race riots, college campus sit-ins and violent demonstrations, peaceful and violent war protests galore, King's assassination, RFK's assassination, the DNC of 1968, and the developing Weathermen Underground. You cannot seriously tell me this is anything like that with a straight face. For a former Democratic Presidential candidate in the 1960s and 1970s, he referred to 1968 as something like "that damn year".

    No kidding. I thank God I live in a heated, but relatively peaceful American society right now.
