June 6 1968 was my little brothers birthday, and I remember it well. Early that morning I got up and was getting ready for the day when I saw the newspaper was left on the counter, something my parents didn’t usually do. On the front cover was the banner headline saying that Robert Kennedy had been killed the day before, June 5th.
The death of RFK is often overshadowed by the death of his brother John Kennedy. One big difference is that – like the murder of Martin Luther King – the assassination of Robert Kennedy is fairly easy to be proven as a conspiracy. Too many gunshots were fired and most from the wrong direction to have been at the hand of Sirhan-Sirhan. Politics in the 1960’s were changed forever with the many assassinations of left-leaning politicians and activists. This was no coincidence, it was a right-wing takeover of the country.
Please take the time to view this classic documentary of the assassination of Robert Kennedy – “The second gun”:
