55 years ago today, New York Senator Robert F. Kennedy was assassinated in Los Angeles, California after declaring victory in the California Presidential Primary race in the Presidential campaign of 1968.
His assassin, Sirhan Sirhan, remains in prison, denied parole numerous times.
Sadly, his namesake, his son Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. is running a Presidential campaign against President Joe Biden, who shares his father’s birthdate, November 20, and whose bust is on the mantle to the left of Biden when he is sitting at the Oval Office desk.
His own family has repudiated RFK Jr, and there are many indications of his instability and maniacal behavior, as he accepts help from Steve Bannon and other Donald Trump acolytes, who see him as a way to undermine Joe Biden’s reelection campaign.
It is certain that Robert F. Kennedy would not approve of what his son is doing, as it besmirches the good name of RFK.
More than a half century after his death, RFK remains an individual very complex, but one who many believe would have been able to transform America in a positive way, instead of the tragic corruption and criminality of Richard Nixon and the right wing of the Republican Party, leading up to the era of conservatism under Ronald Reagan!
