It is not often that an individual goes from conspiracy theorist, to a non-conspiratorial mindset. Typically, it goes the other way around. When you factor in the subject matter that this week’s guest is known for, it makes it even more intriguing. This week Jim welcomes Fred Litwin to the show to discuss his take on the JFK assassination…which is Oswald did it…by himself. Unusual for The Malliard Report right? Well, listen on.
“Fred Litwin is a marketing professional who worked nine years for Intel Corporation. In 1998-1999, Fred managed a team of twenty people organizing the launch of the Pentium III in Asia. Prior to joining Intel, Fred was Vice-President of Sales for LAN Systems in New York City. In 2000, he founded NorthernBlues Music, a cutting-edge blues label. The company has released over 70 CDs, and has garnered 12 Juno Award and over 40 Blues Music Award nominations. In 2007, Fred started the Free Thinking Film Society to showcase films on liberty, freedom and democracy. The Society has now shown over 100 films and also organizes book launches and panel discussion in the fall of 2015, Fred published his first book, Conservative Confidential: Inside the Fabulous Blue Tent, which detailed his journey from left-wing anti-nuclear activist to becoming a gadfly on the right. I was a Teenage JFK Conspiracy Freak is his second book.
Fred Litwin recounts how he became a JFK conspiracy freak at eighteen, and then slowly moved to believe that Lee Harvey Oswald was the lone assassin. This book demonstrates how the left and the right have used the JFK assassination to drive home myths about power in America. There is also the horrible persecution of a gay man prosecuted for conspiring to kill Kennedy, the ugly story of Oliver Stone’s homophobic film JFK, a look at how the Soviets tried to influence American public opinion into believing the CIA was behind the assassination, and the incredible secret why some JFK assassination documents must remain locked up forever. And a whole lot more.
‘As a young man growing up in the heyday of Kennedy assassination theorizing, Fred Litwin believed a conspiracy killed JFK. And then he grew, and he studied and he researched. The result is this volume, a thorough, cogent and meticulously argued case for a lone assassin. A seasoned conspiracy skeptic will learn new things here, and a conspiracy believer open to looking at the other side could do no better than this volume.”
This is an unusual episode for The Malliard Report, but a great listen none the less. As you may know by now the typical stance is the one that strays from the mainstream, so it is always best to hear the other side of the story. Fred has solid evidence that shows that Oswald could very well be the lone assassin that he is played out to be. But that’s your call.
