I see Tom Brokaw is keeping the NBC tradition of bashing conservatives at every opportunity alive. #Asshole—

Tom Brokaw decided to revise some history in order to avoid canceling out his insinuations during an appearance on MSNBC to discuss the day President John F. Kennedy was assassinated.
Brokaw threw people in conservative states into the mix, ignoring the facts of what actually happened that day:
Ace and others capably tore down the inherent ridiculousness of Brokaw’s statement and reminded him of other presidents who have been threatened (which is all of them):
As usual, Brokaw, like many, like to hint that “conservative” disagreement led to the assassination of JFK, when he was in fact killed by someone of a much different political belief system.
But don’t take our word for it, Tom:
“He didn’t even have the satisfaction of being killed for civil rights. It’s — it had to be some silly little Communist.” — Jackie Kennedy—
