The JFK Assassination and the Gangster Nature of the State
— Michael Parenti

Parenti criticizes the lone assassin theory and addresses the bitter question that haunts so many whether government agencies would do such a thing. He examines what he calls “the gangster nature of the state” and goes over details of the murder.

When Oliver Stone’s movie JFK opened in December 1991 a huge PR campaign was mobilized against the film. Even progressives spoke out. Noam Chomsky wrote in support of the Warren Commission’s findings – in contrast Michael Parenti gave one of his highly acclaimed talks criticizing the lone assassin theory. The bitter questions that haunted defenders and critics alike was whether government agencies of a democratic country would do such a thing as assassinate an elected President.

In this talk Michael Parenti turns to that question first – he examines, in part one, what he calls “the gangster nature of the state.” In part two he goes over details of the assassination and critiques The Nation, The Progressive, Chomsky and Cockburn. He spoke in Berkeley, CA, on the 30th anniversary of the JFK assassination. A TUC Radio Presentation. In two parts: part 2 follows part 1 immediately.
