If these progressives want to know what actual treason looks like, they should consult liberal lion Ted, The Swimmer, Kennedy, who not only sent secret messages to the Soviets in the midst of the cold war, he also begged them to intervene in a U.S. presidential election in order to unseat President Ronald Reagan. That’s no exaggeration.
According to Soviet documents unearthed in the early 1990’s, Kennedy literally asked the Soviets, avowed enemies of the U.S., to intervene on behalf of the Democratic party in the 1984 elections. Kennedy’s communist communique was so secret that it was not discovered until 1991, eight years after Kennedy had initiated his Soviet gambit.
And Democrats all loved him for it!
Kennedy was first elected to the Senate in 1964 and due to his enormous popularity was re-elected in every subsequent Senate election, the most recent being the 2006 Senate election.
Kennedy was by far one of the most popular senators at the time of his death, being the, then, second-longest serving senator (behind Robert Byrd) within the U.S. Senate and having been placed on Time Magazine’s list of “America’s 10 Best Senators” in April 2006. Such was his influence and popularity, that Democratic candidates for the presidency consider his endorsement to be extremely valuable.
