Blaming Dallas

Did the right-wing hatred embodied in the city of Dallas kill JFK?

Only the New York Times (and the New Yorker) find this to be a difficult question.

This article in today’s times talks about how hateful Dallas was toward the President. I’m sure the residents of the city were not big fans of the President.

Searching for today’s article on line, I found virtually the same article was written 25 years ago. At least in that one, there is a grudging admission that the man who pulled the trigger on November 22, 1963, was actually a Marxist. Today’s article failed to mention the political orientation of JFK’s assassin or anything about him. Why ruin a good story with a distracting fact?
