If Abraham Lincoln and Christopher Columbus no longer pass woke muster in Boston, then its time for the Kennedys to go.
And everything with their names plastered on it the JFK Library and JFK federal building, his statue at the State House, the Kennedy School of Government across the river, the Rose Kennedy Greenway, the Edward M. Kennedy Whatever They Call It, etc.
Everything must go!
Profiles in Courage? The Kennedys were more like Profiles in Caucasity, as that woke Harvard gal said this week before she too got canceled.
Lets start with President Kennedy. Just for starters, he believed in tax cuts (a rising tide lifts all boats). He was a Cold Warrior (the long twilight struggle). He wasnt into welfare and reparations (Ask not what your country can do for you .).
He palled around with Sen. Joe McCarthy. When Nixon ran for the Senate in 1950, JFK gave him a grand in cash. His best friend in Congress was George Smathers, an arch-segregationist from Florida.
JFK didnt hate Jews the way his father and his brother Bobby did, but wasnt real down for the civil rights struggle. He wouldnt let Sammy Davis Jr. perform at his inauguration.
His top supporter in the South was Alabama Gov. John Patterson, who won his election holding up a giant photo of Arkansas cops beating blacks in Little Rock, Ark., and telling his supporters, When Im elected, this is what well have in Alabama.
Patterson was so incorrigibly racist that in 1960, when Jackie Robinson realized who JFK had thrown in with, he endorsed Nixon for president.
And lets not forget JFK tried to kill Fidel Castro, patron saint of all looters and statue-smashers. As his vice president Lyndon Baines Johnson later told CBS of the Kennedys efforts:

They will eventually do this, I don’t get why people don’t think they will. I just want ALL of the monuments torn down in the past 6 years to be restored.
Ted Kennedy, more than anyone, is responsible for planning and building the conditions of Leftist urban chaos, black entitlement and rage, and destruction of Americas unity and civil society based on our basic founding principles.
Are there statues of that fat f*** anywhere? These need to be pulled down immediately.
The only black folks near the Kennedys were carrying trays of drinks and snacks.
it is true.
he sold out to the russians. look what he did to a woman.
if it is that bad, it is time to remove
the name from every pavilion, center, street, ...
All for renaming that JFK airport back to Idlewild airport, but you know they won’t do that, because the name has got to be symbolic of something now. Boo. Probably name it after “latest corporate sponsor”, like ballparks.
It would be fun to see it called “DJT airport” though, just to watch people go nuts. “Giuliani” would be fun too.
Howie Carr tosses in a bucket of chum.
If KKK Byrd statues arent being torn down, I doubt that JFK will be.
And LBJ’s “Hypocrite preacher man” MLK
Anything related to EITHER CLINTON
“Revs” Jacksunnnn and Sharpie
And of course, the racists OCommies . . both of them
“Are there statues of that fat f*** anywhere?”
No statues that I know of, but there is the EMK institute
at the Kennedy Library in Boston.
In my humble opinion, no public buildings should be named after a politician.

And he'll succeed.
Which means he'll win in November...by an 80-10 margin.
And the day he's sworn into the Senate he'll start his Presidential campaign.Mark my words.
The Kennedy Center in DC would be a great location for a future Trump Library.
Wow, I learned a new word today.
Nope, no statues of Fat Teddy-boy — the quarries didn’t have enough stone.
“Are there statues of that fat f*** anywhere? These need to be pulled down immediately.”
No. You could go visit the Swimmer’s grave in Arlington but it is heavily guarded, both to keep out winos inhaling the Scotch fumes which continue to rise from his grave, and to keep out Patriots with full bladders.
ROFL. Although, it's no joke.
The most amazing thing is that so far I have yet to hear of is not one thing with Robert Byrds name on it has been burned to the ground or torn down. Fun y how DNC racism is accepted. You can also add Bobby Kennedy spying on MLK illegally.
So when are they going to go after statues of Alexander Hamilton?
