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):

Truly pathetic.

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:

Video of Brokaw’s comments can be viewed at Newsbusters.

          When Ayers and fellow terrorists can sit and fantize about killing 25 million Americans to cleanse the country… you can see why left wing extremists can lie so easily about JFK..

          If he were alive today, and just starting his career, he have to run as a republican.. because the Kos Huff n Puff and NYT’s liberal douchebags would crush his reputation for not being a “progressive”.. he wasn’t..

          To say the right hated JFK that much ignores way too much reality to even stand for a second under close scrutiny.

      • therealguyfaux ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

        Sirhan is a Palestinian, so you’d figure that would weigh in his favor, but he was (and still may be for all I know) a Christian, so unless he’s undergone a convenient conversion to Islam, you’d figure he doesn’t really “count,” as far as Middle East revolutionaries go…

        • Teresa Davis McCormick

          the point wasn’t that he was from the Middle East, I believe. It was the fact that the assassin is admired by Bill Ayers so it’s a ridiculous for anyone on the left to point the blame at conservatives.

    Tom Brokaw has become quite unhinged….his daily 1 minute radio bit stinks…have you listened to that dribble…..hard to understand over the mumbling.
    As for JFK….he won the closest election in history (minus the Bush win of 2000)…..whereupon many scholars and Nixon voters have noted for decades – there was plenty of shady, well, cheat worthy voting going on. There were tense feelings on that election that lingered, as many knew monkey business was going on w/ Papa Joe & the Democrats.
    However, JFK won some southern states as a Democrat, and he won many conservative spots…..w / many wanting a change after years of Ike, and Nixon was an extension of Ike……..
    The Cold War- Russia, China, North Korea, Eastern Europe, Mafia, Mob, father’s enemies, RFK enemies, civil rights enemies, Vietnam-China-Europe enemies, the guy had issues and enemies abounding….

    • Spiny Norman

      The closest anyone can get to a workable “conservative conspiracy” is that the Mafia felt they “got JFK elected” (Chicago “voting”, anyone?), then he and his AG brother Robert “stabbed them in the back” by cracking down on organized crime. It’s quite a stretch to consider the Mob “political conservatives”, though.

      The Mafia also crossed paths with anti-Castro Cuban exiles in Nawlins that Oswald claimed to have “infiltrated” to help Fidel, but….

      • GaryTheBrave

        I saw a documentary on the Military channel last week titled “The Mob & The KKK.” It pointed out that the KKK was created in the south by Democrats and the Mafia bosses were registered Republicans. It also pointed out how the KKK, even though it was older and more organized, didn’t even try to infiltrate the mob-controlled North.

        Very interesting. I recommend it.

        • Spiny Norman

          Are you saying that the Mafia was the GOP’s version of the KKK? Seriously? In my 52 years I have never even heard anyone suggest that. The Chicago Mob heavily influenced, if not outright controlled the Democratic political machine in that city since at least the 1920s. They controlled the (Democrat-voting) labor unions in NYC for at least that long. If anything, the Mafia was to the Northern DEMOCRATS what the Klan was to their political brethren in the South.

          BTW, in the first half of the 20th century, the Klan was indeed active in some Northern states like Illinois and Indiana. In the 1920s, the Klan had cells in virtually every state in the Union.

          • GaryTheBrave

            I’m not claiming anything. I’m repeating what I saw in the documentary. The documentary claims that most mob bosses were registered Republicans.

            What I did not include, but shall now do so, is that the Klan was for prohibition yet didn’t even try to shut down the Speakeasies of the North. Again, this is from the documentary, not me.

      I remember Brokaw when he was a rookie reporter in LA. He was a bonehead then and still remains true to his colors today. JFK was not a favorite of PROG of his day. He was a true American and too conservative for them. RFK believed that Lyndon was behind his brother’s demiss. There is a lot of support for the belief that it was libs that did JFK in.

          • Roto ✓Intentionally Left Blank

            In less than a week the Soviets wanted to kick him out of the country. The only reason they let him stay was because the wacko slit his wrist trying to “commit suicide”, which could’ve created a diplomatic incident for the KGB with an ex-Marine. He had nothing to offer Soviet intelligence, because he didn’t know anything they didn’t already know. So they shipped him off to Minsk where he stumbled onto his wife. The KGB watched him and let him leave as soon as they could.

    oh yeah, sure TOM. the Cuban missile crisis, & the Bay of Pigs both events Kennedy caused the soviet union loss of prestige, which communists need as communism values style over substance made Kennedy a target in the Kremlin.

    ‘Conservative states’ like ’Texas, Arkansas, Missouri, West Virginia, Georgia, North Carolina and South Carolina all voted for JFK. California, Oregon, Washington, Wisconsin, Vermont, New Hampshire and Maine, all far left progressive liberal Democrat states voted for Nixon. Therefore, using Brokaw’s ‘logic’ progressive liberal states wanted JFK killed.

    • Spiny Norman

      In 1960, with the notable exception of San Francisco, CA was hardly “far left progressive liberal” (neither were OR and WA, for that matter). That started in the late 1960s and ’70s when NE libs (like Nancy Pelosi and Barbara Boxer) migrated here by the tens of of thousands.

  • 912er

    Well of course…….Everyone knows conservatives are racist against white people.

  • Axelgreaser

    DURING THE PERIOD OF TIME BROKAW AND THE LIBS ARE BABBLING ABOUT ON THE FANTASMAGORICAL ‘KENNEDY REMEMBERANCES’ of an assassination that took place during a period of time (excluding Dallas) that the Dixiecrat’s (today’s out and out Communist-Marxist Democrats) were at the height of their fulminating racism in the South. Truth is, a Communist like the one’s who have infected the Democrat party today ruled the South, not conservative Republican’s. Republicans had nothing to do with the rampant racism in the South or the fact that Democrats fought equal rights among the races tooth and nail. But TODAY is the era of ‘Hopey Changey, Lean Forward’, swindler and pathological liar Obama and so it’s O.K. to rewrite history, just as it is alright to switch ‘Global Warming’ to ‘Climate Change’ or ‘ObamaCare’ (so loved by King complex Obama just weeks ago) to the ‘Affordable Care Act’ after it has been outted as a carnival ring toss rip-off and the most monumental Ponzi scheme of all times.

    I guess many have missed it. This has been coming for a year. I have heard countless times Conservatives being blamed for JFK. I am 51, and I was a year old when he died. I don’t remember nothing about him, I know what I did learn about him though. Boy have I taken hits from my family for not worshiping this man.

    John Kennedy didn’t have any presidential accomplishments. Every one blames Lyndon Johnson for Vietnam but if you check history, actual history you will see JFK started us in Vietnam, meaning actions towards getting us into the war because he did hate communists. Then the Bay of Pigs oh please. Everyone makes that out to be one of his greatest accomplishments, he went toe to toe with Communists on TV really?????? He didn’t have ONE ACCOMPLISHMENT as President.

    JFK was a Womanizing, Mob loving, man. His father was a Bootlegger, ambassador who was just like Chamberlain with Hitler, and a womanizer. He cheated on his Wife countless times and he pushed his oldest son Joe to kill himself to be the hero his dad wanted during WWII. they watched and pushed against their daughter who died in a plane crash because she was catholic going to marry a divorced man. HE took his handicapped daughter in for a Lobotomy and hid that from his wife. His cheating and lying continued until he had his stroke. Then Rose found out what he truly did. The Sad thing is ROSE watched this family she thought was so wonderful, destroy itself from all of its evil deeds. OH Yes What a beautiful Camelot.

    JFK, Bobby, and Teddy were their father. All of them Hypocrites to the core. In bed with the Mob to get elected, and bobby eating them for breakfast.

    Rush said it so Good today.

    Rush – But if you try to run around today and say that the Kennedy presidency was nothing to write home about in historical and in real terms, you will get slaughtered, because the poor man has been martyred and is now, in surveys of historians, he’s either number one or two greatest president ever, and I’m telling you, not even close. But you can’t say that. (interruption) The Bay of Pigs? Well, you could talk about the Bay of Pigs. Outright, utter disaster. What was his signature achievement? I’ll tell you what his signature achievement was. Jackie. His signature achievement was the family and the pictures and the photo-ops and his press conferences.

    He made the press feel like they were on the inside. He laughed with ’em, he joked with ’em. That’s why the Camelot PR campaign was able to work so well. His singular real achievement? It happened posthumously. I would say that those massive tax cuts that he proposed and that were passed later after he died. You can’t say the Cuban missile crisis. We got our clocks cleaned on that deal, particularly in Turkey. (interruption) What? Well, I know. See, I’ve just stepped in it. I just blasphemed because the Hollywood portrayal of the six-day missile cruises is that JFK single-handedly averted a nuclear war.

    The legend is that JFK, in his studly manliness, stood down, stood up, stared down the brute, the bully, Nikita Khrushchev and sent Khrushchev running back to Russia with his tail between his legs and the nuclear missiles that never got to Cuber. That’s the legend. Can’t deny it. That’s the legend. The truth is something else. But what’s the point? In this situation nobody wants to hear the truth. It’s there for people that want to study it. It’s been written about, the Kennedy presidency’s written about accurately. But it is safe to say that there were serious questions about him being reelected. In fact, his reelection was a grave risk. What people who only know Camelot, what people don’t realize is, during the time of his life and during his time at the White House, there was no Camelot.

    Camelot was created after his death as a massive PR campaign that was led by Jackie and Arthur Schlesinger Jr. and Ted Sorensen and all the others that surrounded Kennedy in a slavish, sycophantic way in the White House. Vietnam War, just to show you, the Vietnam War which the sixties generation, that’s the formative event in their lives, the Vietnam War is JFK. LBJ gets all the blame for it because he did ratchet it up, but it was JFK that took us there. JFK got the whole Vietnam War thing started. He was a fervent anti-communist. He was trying to stop the domino effect. But he has nothing to do with Vietnam in history. Nothing to do with it. There is no soil in the legacy of JFK. But the truth, you know, is another matter.

    The truth is never going to permeate. It’s one of these situations where the manufactured legacy satisfies everybody, makes ’em feel good. It’s almost as though he was deserving of that, given that he gave his life for the country, being assassinated and so forth, so why nitpick it. “Rush, why tell people what really happened in the Cuban missile crisis? Why Blaspheme? You can’t you just leave it alone? If the American people want to have a hero that stood up and stared down the Russians, don’t take it away from ’em.” And that’s pretty much what it is.

    But that’s not what’s happening today. What’s happening today is just an extension of what happens every day. The right wing’s responsible. Conservatives did it. And if they didn’t do it, they wanted to do it. And if they didn’t do it, they might have paid for it. And if they didn’t pay for it, they were applauding it when it happened. Whatever they have to do to connect conservatives to this assassination is what many in the Drive-Bys have been doing all week. The New York Times, I shared with you a story from a couple days ago yesterday. It’s one of those things can be very frustrating. The truth is out there, but it is nowhere near the surface. And it’s a truth that a lot of people don’t want to be bothered with.

    RUSH: You know, I’ve been thinking, too, about this question. Who asked me, “What was Kennedy’s biggest legacy?” I’ve been thinking about it, and this is really it. This really, if you stop and think about it, is the signature achievement of JFK: The establishment of the modern-day, partisan, celebrity-worshiping media. That is the signature achievement: The establishment of the modern-day partisan, celebrity-worshiping, Democrat media.

    Kennedy’s Life is Celebrated. But Lincoln’s is not as celebrated as Kennedy’s, I know he has a Memorial. I also know that his birthday is a Holiday, with all other President’s. I also know he is on the 5 Dollar Bill. I also know that the Ford’s Theater is a place of Remembrance and the House where he died across the street is a place to visit. I also know at Ford’s Theater many leftists that are part of Hollywood go there, get rewarded, and then change history. I have NEVER seen anyone lay a WREATH at LINCOLN’S GRAVE. I have never seen a ceremony commemorating his life. I have seen the Gettysburg Address and the 150th Birthday of it, But Today what took place was so different. I hope people understand what I mean. LINCOLN had ACCOMPLISHMENTS AS PRESIDENT, Made a TRUE DIFFERENCE in this Country.

    Garfield shot and Killed by Charles Guiteau.

    OK. Some people in some states did not like Kennedy. And some of those people did not care a flip when he was shot. And some of those people in some of those states were not unhappy when he was shot. But it is a far stretch to claim what this brazen idiot said. And that ain’t a stretch.
    Much like Oprah’s claim about Obama disliked only because of his mixed race. Yes. There are some people in some states who don’t like Obama because of his mixed race. And some of those people act out against Obama because of his mixed race. But, once again, it is not correct to say what Oprah said. There are real issue that most people disagree with when it comes to Obama.

    “Lack of support = wishing death. Umm yeah. Don’t think so. Lib media hasn’t changed in 50 years.”

    I think it has. The lib media has become worse.

    Tom Brokaw should have been put out to pasture a LOOOOOOOOONG time ago.

    Fool lefties live in a truly bizarre world. Crazy leftists go out and shoot people, and dim-bulbs like brokaw have to establish some alternate universe where Conservative people want to, and do, the shooting.

    Tom Brokaw retired a while ago and I never noticed.

    Brian Ross has just linked Oswald to the Tea Party (sarc)

    Why would anyone disdain a president who orchestrated the Bay of Pigs disaster and then his weakness brought us the Cuban Missile Crisis.
    Why we all know that JFK’s enemies waved their wands and created those two crises.

    Wow! I didn’t know Brokaw said that. What a piece of crap that guy is. I did know that about the idiot saying the JFK Assasination had “Tea Party Roots”. Did the Manson Family have “Obama Administration Roots”. Cheer up, our Enemies are retards.

    Tom’s brain is dead. Only the leftist drivel remains.

  • Ed McDowell

    Tom boy – Oswald WAS AN AVOWED MARXIST YOU DUMBASS. You also just accused thousands of men you honored as the “Greatest Generation” by mass association you idiot ideologue.!

  • Restless_1

    Um, yeah. Liberals in conservative states wanted him dead. He would be drummed out of today’s dem party.

  • jazj

    There are actually morons who believe it was all of those evil “GOP” that wanted him when it was in fact his own party doing their best to stick their knifes into JFK.

  • Michele Pullara Allen

    Brokaw has lost his mind. In the times of the Kennedy assassination, the info-world wasn’t organized enough to have the strong distinctions between Dems and Reps….his comment is so off base!!!!!

    Hey Tommy, wake up! A leftist-Communist shot and killed JFK. My God! Liberals simply cannot face FACTS. It’s like their well-hidden support of segregation and their Jim Crow laws! They cannot face the truth that it was their beloved Democrat party that supported, sustained and promoted racism for 100 years!
