NYT Bashes Chappaquiddick Movie As ‘Character Assassination’ – The Internet Takes Them To Truth City

For someone to ‘assassinate’ character, must they not first have some in the first place?

The New York Times — once a storied newspaper, is now reduced to this?

It’s sad, really.

In a New York Times op-ed published Friday, a liberal journalist and film critic complained the new film Chappaquiddick was a “character assassination” of its central character, Democratic Senator Ted Kennedy.

“How ‘Chappaquiddick’ Distorts a Tragedy” wrote Neal Gabler, who is working on a biography of Kennedy.

Gabler complained the film, released in theaters Friday, has been “heavily promoted by conservative media outlets, and reviewers across the political spectrum have praised what they deem its damning but factual approach. Damning it is; factual it is not.”

There actually was no “cover-up” of Kennedy’s car accident that led to the death of an aide, he claims, adding that “no one but the most lunatic conspiracy theorists see this as anything but a tragic accident in which nothing much was covered up.”

Did you notice he was “working on a biography of Kennedy”? Do you suppose that a damning story like Chappaquiddick could hurt his book sales? Or is he worried that it will make the biographer look more like a flunkie than a historian?

Here’s some of the feedback.

Let’s pretend for a minute that the driver of that car had the last name ‘Bush’, or ‘Reagan’ or ‘Trump’.

Would he be defending the ‘character’ then?

Of course not.

They’d break out the torches and pitchforks.

But this is different. He’s a Kennedy.

What makes America so different from other nations? Other nations are built around regimes or systems. But America was built from on ideas. From a blank slate.

Built on ideas that are DANGEROUS to tyrants.

That we have God-Given Rights, like Life, Liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

Dangerous ideas. Like this one: the people, when threatened, have a God-Given right to stand up in defiance of any government that dares threaten any of those rights.

There’s a men’s version

And a women’s version, too

Because in America, the bros AND the ladies BOTH have a rich history of badass rowdiness.
