Chipper Finally Breaks His Silence on the JFK Assassination

Posted in Baseball, History's Not Happening at 11:34 am by

At this point in his career, we know who “Larry” “Wayne” Chipper Jones (above, left) is. We know what he’s about as a professional baseball player, we know what kind of exotic entertainment he enjoys, and we might even know about “Buck Commander,” the Outdoor Channel show in which he and Ryan Langerhans hunt and hijink about and play wiffle-ball with heavily bearded hunter dudes. And thanks to Jones’ admirable recent forthrightness on the problem of nerds blogging bad things about him from their mothers’ basements, we know how Chipper believes computers should be used. Namely, they should have their browsers pointed at Prison Planet, and they should be used to discover the HIDDEN TRUTH about President John F. Kennedy’s assassination.

No doubt “they” encouraged him to keep his mouth shut on what he knows, but Chipper will keep quiet no longer. He finally broke his long silence on the issue to Yahoo’s Dan Schlossberg:

“Having shot a hunting rifle all my life, I personally believe there was more than one shooter,” the six-time All Star said before an exhibition game at Disney’s Wide World of Sports. “The conspiracy behind it is what really intrigues me. I’m sure it went pretty high but I don’t know how high. Let’s just say somebody had to put it into motion — and it was somebody high-ranking in the U.S. government.”

Although Jones was born in 1972, nine years after Kennedy was assassinated during a Dallas motorcade on Nov. 22, 1963, he heard about the event from his father, Larry Wayne Jones, when they lived in DeLand, Fla.

“It interests my dad,” Jones said. “He always said it was one of the five biggest defining moments of his life. And I did numerous reports on it when I was in school.”

No word, yet, on the other four biggest defining moments of Larry Wayne Jones Sr.’s life, but I’ll obviously watch the skies for the TRUTH. Or, failing that, rely on Craig Calcaterra — Hardball Talk’s basement-blogging conspiratologist in chief — for pithy commentary on Jones’ next Oliver Stone-ism.

    Now, suddenly I want to know what Scott Rolen thinks on whether or not the moon landing was faked.

  2. So Cal Jack says:

    The moon landing took place on the back lot of Warner Brothers studios in Burbank, CA. JFK, RFK, Dr. King and Elvis are all alive, living out their senior years together on a private island close to Aruba!

    Ya know, let the guy have an opinion. Do we all have to think or feel the same way about certain topics?

  4. Marv Kereluke says:

    Glad to see there are still people out there who realize the whole assissination scenerio was much bigger than some little nut job operating alone.

    Please let Chipper know there is one website that has all the answers.
    Here is the link: http://www.jfkmurdersolved.com
    The actual kill shot came from the grassy knoll by a man named James Files, whose taped confession is available to be viewed on this website. The site basically proves beyond a shadow of a doubt that is was a far reaching conspiracy that was triggered by Kennedy failing to sanction a US military invasion to support the CIA at the Bay of Pigs. The conspiracy was comprised of elements of the US military, CIA, and the mob, all of whom wanted to invade Cuba and topple Castro. Anyone who spends considerable time on this site will be convinced of its conclusions, the evidence and analysis are overwhelming.
    Lyndon Johnson’s direct REVERSAL of US foreign policy in Vietnam just days after the assassination is a clear indication that he was complicit.

    I think he is tryng to create a cover for Bobby Cox. Pretty sure the Bobster could have been in on it.

    Oswald knew he was set up by the mob, hence the reason for Jack Ruby to silence him forever. People also forget that JFK had fired Allan Dulled CIA Director. He also told FBI Director he would not allow him to continue after the election. RFK was destroying the mob and VP Johnson hated the Kennedys who had the most to gain. It so silly to think Oswald would be trusted by the mob to kill the President on his own. Also, I have spent 20 years in law enforcement and I have never seen a bullet shot from behind hit a target in the front. Govt thinks we are stupid???

    What an idiot. Because I drive a car, I am qualified to teach race car drivers. Because I can cook a hamburger on my stove, I am qualified to have my own show on the Food Network. Because this moron shoots a deer rifle, he feels qualified to analyze the Kennedy shooting. Has this young idiot even been to Daley Plaza? And why is Yardbarker and other sports media giving him a forum to spout his nonsense? I know we are in that dreadful period between sports, but come on already!
