JFK: A Conservative Today?

President John F. Kennedy lowered taxes, opposed abortion, supported gun rights and believed in a strong military. A strong, conservative Republican, right? Not quite. JFK was the darling of the Democrat Party in the early 1960s, though the party was a lot more moderate than today’s looney tunes.

Fast forward to 2021 and PragerU’s Will Witt asks, “Would JFK be a conservative today? In the years since the JFK Administration, the Left has become much more radical and, although many people look up to JFK for his liberal causes, a closer look at his policies paints a different picture. Kennedy was a lifelong NRA member and strong supporter of the 2nd Amendment, and he believed that a well-equipped military was the answer, as demonstrated in the Cuban Missile Crisis. Today, the Left supports abortion, even up to nine months. Kennedy would have never approved of that. In the following presentation, Witt digs deeper into JFK’s policies and comes to the conclusion that our 35th President just might have moved to the other side of the aisle.
