Here are JFK’s words allegedly speaking of secret societies. My analysis below the video.
This is an unbelievable distortion of the speech given by JFK on April 27, 1961 (http://tinyurl.com/4o2j78w).
This speech was given 10 days after the bay of pigs. Kennedy is talking about communism and the cold war. He is discussing the balance between our freedoms of speech and the responsibility of newspapers to not publish information that might compromise national security. He is making an appeal (not a decree) to the newspapers to be more discreet with the information they publish.
Below is a transcript of the content contained in this propaganda video. Words [between brackets] depict words the creators of this video conveniently edited out of the original speech. I also note, via words (between parenthesis), how many words were skipped in the original speech to misquote and achieve the necessary distortion of truth and context.
“[Mr. Chairman,] ladies and gentlemen:”
(Skips forward past 710 words … )
“The very word “secrecy” is repugnant in a free and open society; and we are as a people inherently and historically opposed to secret societies, to secret oaths and to secret proceedings.”
(Skips forward past 412 words … )
“For we are opposed around the world by a monolithic and ruthless conspiracy that relies primarily on covert means for expanding its sphere of influence—on infiltration instead of invasion, on subversion instead of elections, on intimidation instead of free choice, [on guerrillas by night instead of armies by day]. It is a system which has conscripted vast human and material resources into the building of a tightly knit, highly efficient machine that combines military, diplomatic, intelligence, economic, scientific and political operations.
Its preparations are concealed, not published. Its mistakes are buried, not headlined. Its dissenters are silenced, not praised. No expenditure is questioned, [no rumor is printed], no secret is revealed.”
(Skips forward past 859 words … )
“That is why the Athenian law-maker Solon decreed it a crime for any citizen to shrink from controversy.”
(Skips BACKWARDS past 96 words … )
“[I am not asking your newspapers to support the Administration, but] I am asking your help in the tremendous task of informing and alerting the American people.”
(Skips forward past 378 words … )
“[And so it is to the printing press—to the recorder of man’s deeds, the keeper of his conscience, the courier of his news—that we look for strength and assistance,] confident that with your help man will be what he was born to be: free and independent.”
The original, unedited speech was 2,249 words long. Somebody selected 186 words, mixed up their order and edited sentence structures in an attempt to obfuscate the true meaning of JFK’s words and intent. This speech was not about global agendas or some new world order.
Here I’m including a PDF file of the entire 2,249 word speech given by JFK. The words highlights in yellow are the 186 words cherry picked by conspiracists to create the illusion JFK was discussing secret societies.
