I am reading commentary about Ted Kennedy that he was a “true believer,” including this fawning piece from CNN. Yet, what was it that he believed? Ted Kennedy believed that the state should confiscate most of your income, and should give you second-rate “benefits” in return. He believed that you as an individual had no right to resist attacks from criminal or the state (Is there a difference?), and that everyone should be forced to pay taxes for abortions and other things with which they disagree. In other words, Ted Kennedy believed that the state should be considered omniscient and omnipotent, and anyone who resisted should be crushed. And he is being lionized for those views. How sick. How evil.
That great old-time liberal Robert Sherrill had Ted Kennedy’s number long ago when he authored his damning exposé of the nefarious philandering murderer from Massachusetts, The Last Kennedy. Don’t believe the mainstream media obituary hype. Read the truth. It ain’t pretty. Also regarding the Chappaquiddick Incident, see Leo Damore, Senatorial Privilege: The Chappaquiddick Cover-Up, and Zad Rust, Teddy Bare.
Almost on cue, Jim Wallis of Sojourners demands that we “honor” Ted Kennedy by having the state direct all (as opposed to most) medical care in this country. Writes Wallis:
On the occasion of his death, I pray that God may now move us as a nation to address the greatest commitment of Sen. Kennedy’s life — the need for a comprehensive reform of the health-care system in America — as a deeply moral issue and one that calls forth the very best that is within us. May we honor the life and death of Sen. Edward Kennedy by laying aside the rancor, lies, fear, and even hate that has come to dominate the health-care debate in America this summer, and regain our moral compass by recovering the moral core of this debate: that too many Americans are hurting and suffering in a broken and highly inequitable health-care system, and that it is our moral obligation to repair and reform it — now.
Wallis writes of the “deep Catholic faith” of Kennedy, as though this hedonist who spent most of his adult life making a mockery of the Church and its moral directives actually cared about anything other than where he would have his next sexual conquest.
