Ted Kennedy Loathed Britain

- so why did Gordon Brown knight him?

Ruth Dudley Edwards - August 27th 2009 - London Mail

Gordon Brown was 'proud to have counted [Ted Kennedy] as a friend and proud that the United Kingdom recognised his service earlier this year with the award of an honorary knighthood'.

Proud? He should be ashamed. Kennedy was a formidable and Machiavellian political operator in the U.S., but he was no friend of Britain. In fact, he was one of our most committed and unrelenting enemies on Capitol Hill.

In his anti-British sentiments, he took after his father, Joseph P. Kennedy, who was unable to hide his bigoted views during a shameful spell as U.S. ambassador to Great Britain.

Ted did his father proud. As a politician dependent on Irish-American votes, this master of empty rhetoric had no scruples about spreading the bitter message of Irish republicanism, especially if there was an election at stake.

Like much else about the Kennedy history, the lies will never stop. Ted Kennedy was indifferent to the death of Mary Jo Kopechne and indifferent to the rape by William Kennedy Smith which Ted Kennedy contributed to by getting his nephew drunk. When the Kennedy family gets together for their drunken parties they never fail to remind each other of how entitled they are.

Entitlement is the one word that dominates the attitude of the Kennedy clan. They are rich beyond most people's dreams from the fortune of Joseph P. Kennedy created by stock manipulation and other marginally legal efforts (rumored to have included bootlegging) even abusing his position as Ambassador to England to extort favorable terms for the importation of Scotch in one endeavor which added to the family fortune.

The Kennedy family is a ruthless group of arrogant entitled rich that use money to destroy anyone who gets in their way. For every person who admires their constant touting of socialism, their is another who despises them for the evil and corruption they stand for.
