Actor Alec Baldwin, who is also known for his political activism, took to Instagram the other day intending to pay tribute to former president John F. Kennedy, assassinated in Dallas on November 22, 1963.
Baldwin posted a photo of President Kennedy with his wife Jacqueline Kennedy from the day the President was assassinated and added a lengthy caption full of questions. The ‘Knots Landing‘ actor asked first whether Kennedy had a clue as to what lay ahead or were any warnings given to him. The actor continued:
“Did he sense the danger he was moving toward? I only know that this was the first event in a series that has resulted in America’s disease and decline.”
Then Baldwin praised the former President by saying that he had risked his life before in the service of his country, and expressed his frustration regarding John F. Kennedy’s unsolved murder. The actor went on saying about JFK, who served the country just at the time period of the Cold War:
“After WW II, we were heroes, destined to teach the world what full-throated Democracy could achieve. A short time after, not even 20 years, JFK’s UNSOLVED murder is the first tragic misstep in the post-war America. Dallas, Vietnam, RFK-MLK-Chicago (68) and now the sadistic, insane four years of Trump.”
According to the actor, even though Kennedy made mistakes like every President in history, his only aim was to serve the people of the country. The 62-year-old also described the former President as “the last American to serve as President intent solely on serving” the country.
At the end of his message, Baldwin called out his fans and followers to remember Kennedy, who was murdered by “CIA backed operatives” according to his claim, and concluded his message as follows:
“I hope I meet you one day, John F Kennedy.”
As known, Kenndy’s murderer, former U.S. Marine Lee Harvey Oswald, who fatally shot him while traveling through downtown Dallas, was not charged because he had been killed in the basement of Dallas Police Headquarters by Jack Ruby. For the same reason, the case was not solved so far.
