Ted Kennedy

‘Chappaquiddick’ helps expose liberal 'lion' Ted Kennedy’s true character

Philip Klein, Washington Examiner

More moral men having emerged from the tragic incident at Chappaquiddick unscathed, might have at least reformed their ways thereafter. But Kennedy only learned that if he could get away with Chappaquiddick, he could get away with anything. We’re led to believe that his big punishment was that he never got to be president. But he allowed to hold sway in the Senate for decades, and in death he was praised as a hero. A reassessment of his real legacy is long overdue, and hopefully this new film will trigger that conversation.

The Grisly History of Chappaquiddick

Ben Shapiro, National Review

"Chappaquiddick" reminds us that confirmation bias and wishful thinking aren't unique to one side of the aisle. In the era of President Trump, media members have had fun telling Republicans that they have abandoned all of their moral principles in order to back a man whose agenda they support. But Democrats beat Republicans there by decades: They not only overlooked a man who likely committed manslaughter but also made him into a hero, the "Lion of the Senate." We can't understand how morals and politics have been split in two without reckoning with this history.

Jack Cashill, American Thinker

Senators Patty Murray and Claire McCaskill do not believe that Moore lives up to their standards.

Say what one will about Roy Moore, but unlike Kennedy, he did not make a career of debauchery, and no one ever drowned in his car.

When Democrats Wanted Moscow’s Political Assistance

Democrats were not always so sensitive about Moscow’s involvement in American elections. In 1983 Democrats were down on their luck. So what to do? According to a memo from KGB head Viktor Chebrikov what Democratic Senators Ted Kennedy and John Tunney did was call upon on the Soviet Union for assistance in defeating President Reagan.

Trump’s New York Values: A Long History Of Supporting Far-Left Politicians, Policies And Causes

Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
When I look at who Donald Trump has walked with and where he’s walked what I see is not a maturing understanding of the value and validity of conservative thought and ideas about how to govern – what I see is a long record of paying to play with liberal politicians, of adopting liberal positions, and now opportunistically trying to mislead voters into believing he is a populist “conservative.”
