R.I.P. Bobby Kennedy: 50 Years Ago Today RFK Shot In Los Angeles Hotel

It was 50 years today that Bobby Kennedy was shot a few minutes past midnight in the Ambassador Hotel in Los Angeles only minutes after having delivered a victory speech in the Ambassador Hotel Ballroom having won the June 4th 1968 California Democratic Presidential primary.

He would succumb to his wounds and die 26 hours later on June 6th 1968.

And so the man who was described as America’s Last Best Hope went into eternity.

Richard Nixon was elected President, the Vietnam War went on for another 7 years, American liberalism went on a downward path into insanity after George McGovern won the 1972 Democratic Presidential nomination and has been insane ever since.

The insanity of American liberalism resulted in the reactionary policies of Ronald Reagan which resulted in the massive cutting of all American government programs including those that were actually helping the poor.

Both Republicans and Democrats leapt into bed with the globalists from George H.W. Bush and Bill Clinton on.

This was followed by the reactionism of Donald Trump that has produced a very radical and irrational nationalism with extreme racist overtones.

And Bobby Kennedy the man who sought to bring all Americans black and white, rich and poor, blue collar workers and white collar workers together- his legacy the last beacon of light from the shining city on a hill.

I made the following photo montage music video 10 years ago for the 40th anniversary of Bobby Kennedy’s assassination and now I post it here at WordPress on the 50th anniversary of his assassination.

Here are some quotes from the Roman poet Virgil that could easily apply to Bobby Kennedy:

“That man is the most loyal who aims at the noblest motive and that motive is the public good.”

“Fortunate is he whose mind has the power to probe the causes of things and trample underfoot all terrors and inexorable fate.”

“What each man feared would happen to himself did not trouble him when he saw that it would ruin another.”

“They can conquer who believe they can.”

-Virgil
