Michael Parenti on JFK, Stupidity, Chomsky and Cockburn

An amazing speech, one of the best I have ever heard:

"The JFK Assassination and the Gangster Nature of the State"

(Two-part mp3 audiofile, about 50 minutes total.)

Electrifying, fast & furious, brilliantly funny, and completely unanswerable. Delivered at Yale on the 30th anniversary of the assassination, and today more pertinent than ever. (He addresses the now-inexcusable foolishness of Chomsky and Cockburn in the second half.)

    You're welcome, abbass. Yeah, Michael Parenti should be a lot better known than he is. I think he is just so obviously and embarrassingly right about so many things that he has to be studiously ignored by many on the left.
