“Chappaquiddick”: New Kennedy movie “doesn't pull any punches”

Ben DaviesRebel Host | Rebel Reel Reviews


Hollywood has finally made a movie about the 1969 incident that tarnished the Kennedy family's "Camelot" mystique.

Chappaquiddick deserves plenty of praise, with actor Jason Clark a standout playing Ted Kennedy, the last surviving Kennedy brother whose presidential ambitions (but not his political career) were derailed after a car accident took the life of his young female passenger.

Like last year's film All the Money in the World, Chappaquiddick is an honest examination of the way power corrupts those who hold it, and those around them.

I’m sure Chappaquiddick was a hidden crime. Just a few short years later, Teddy and his nephew were involved in a rape of a young woman at their home. You can’t keep having accidents like that and not finally come to the realization that they are involved in criminal activity.

They make out like the Kennedy clan is evil. In this case, it may well be true but this man’s transgression is yet to be proven to be a criminal act and not simply na accident.
On the other hand, if you look at what crimes the Weinsteins and the Clintons of the world have committed, there is very little being done about it.
Hollywood is not adverse to bashing Christians and do so on any occasion that presents itself.
There is a swamp on the west coast also. It is the La Brea tar pits where you can find a lot of degenerate old fossils such as de Niro, Cosby, Weinstein to name a few.

Ted was having an inappropriate affair with Mary Jo Kopechne and she was probably pregnant with his baby, so he MURDERED HER. He made the whole thing look like an accident to cover his tracks and because of his pedigree, his wealth and influence, he got a pass. No mystery here, he was a typical criminal Kennedy. You mentioned the villain in this story, Ted Kennedy but you left out mentioning the victims.
