The "Longest" Listing of Parallels for President Kennedy vs President Lincoln

Post by Malaria_Kidd II » 05-22-2016 12:49 PM

The Fantastic Forum may contain the short version but this long version came from The Classic Rock Experience's web site. No author* has ever been credited, that I'm aware of, since I saw the "short list" during the Winter of 1963/64. :?

Here below are the connections as amazing parallels in life and death of two martyred United States presidents. The short listing is on many paranormal web sites. So it's rather an old well worn legend. This is the longest list of spooky parallels by far!

Note: The Internet's home for urban legends, Daily Snopes, takes the short list to task and explains each line in their sweat drenched investigation. :lol:


The Ode to President Abraham Lincoln by Johnny Horton



The Ode to President John F. Kennedy by Jimmy Dean



Shawnee Chief "Tecumseh's Curse" was declared in the early 1800's claiming present and future U.S. Presidents elected in any year ending in 0 would die in office. :oops:


President John F. Kennedy vs President Abraham Lincoln - their parallels in life & in death! :o


Believe It or Not! :o


Life

#1 Both presidents had 7 letters in their last name.
#2 Both were over 6' feet tall.
#3 Both men studied law.
#4 Both seemed to have lazy eye muscles, which would sometimes cause one to deviate.
#5 Both suffered from genetic diseases. It is suspected that Lincoln had Marfan's disease, and Kennedy suffered from Addison's disease.
#6 Both served in the military. Lincoln was a scout captain in the Black Hawk War, and Kennedy served as a navy lieutenant in World War II.
#7 Both were boat captains. Lincoln was a skipper for the Talisman, a Mississippi River boat, and Kennedy was skipper of the PT 109.
#8 Both had no fear of their mortality and disdained bodyguards.
#9 Both often stated how easy it would be to shoot the president. Lincoln supposedly said, "If somebody wants to take my life, there is nothing I can do to prevent it." Kennedy supposedly said "If somebody wants to shoot me from a window with a rifle, nobody can stop it." Note that both these quotes are each 16 words long.

Death

#10 Both presidents were shot in the head, on a Friday.
#11 Both were seated beside their wives when shot. Neither Mrs. Lincoln nor Mrs. Kennedy was injured. Both wives held the bullet-torn heads of their husbands.
#12 In each case, the man nearest them was injured but not fatally. Major Henry Rathbone was slashed by a knife, and Governor John Connolly was shot.
#13 Lincoln sat in Box 7 at Ford's Theater. Kennedy rode in car 7 in the Dallas motorcade.
#14 Lincoln was shot at Ford's Theater. Kennedy was shot in a Ford product, a Lincoln limousine.
#15 Mrs. Kennedy insisted that her husband's funeral mirror Lincoln's as closely as possible.

The Assassins

#16 Both assassins used three names: John Wilkes Booth and Lee Harvey Oswald. (It should be noted that Lee Harvey Oswald was known as just Lee Oswald prior to the assassination.)
#17 There are 15 letters in each assassin's name.
#18 Both assassins struck when in their mid-twenties. Booth was born in 1838, and Oswald was born in 1939.
# Each assassin lacked a strong father figure in his life. Booth's father died when he was 13 years old, and Oswald's father died before he was born.
#18 Each assassin had two brothers whose careers he coveted. Booth's two brothers were more successful actors and Oswald envied his brothers' military lives.
#18 Both assassins were privates in the military. Booth was a private in the Virginia Militia, and Oswald was a private in the Marine Corps.
#19 Both assassins were born in the south.
#20 Both assassins were known sympathizers to enemies of the United States. Booth supported the Confederacy and Oswald was a Marxist.
#21 Both assassins often used aliases. Booth frequently used "J. Wilkes" and Oswald used the name "Alek J. Hidell."
#22 Booth shot Lincoln at a theater and was cornered in a warehouse. Oswald shot Kennedy from a warehouse and was cornered in a theater.
#23 Both assassins viewed each president before firing a similar way. Booth drilled a peep hole in the door; Oswald used a rifle scope.
#24 Each assassin was detained by an officer named Baker. Lt. Luther B. Baker was leader of the cavalry patrol which trapped Booth at Garrett's Barn. Officer Marion L. Baker, a Dallas motorcycle patrolman, briefly detained Oswald on the second floor of the School Book Depository until he learned that he worked there.
#25 Both assassins were killed with a single shot from a Colt revolver.
#26 Both assassins were shot in a blaze of light-Booth after the barn was set afire, and Oswald in the form of television cameras.

Family and Friends

#27 Both presidents were named after their grandfathers.
#28 Both were born second children.
#29 Both married while in their thirties. Lincoln married at 33 and Kennedy married at 36.
#30 Both married dark-haired, twenty-four-year-old women.
#31 Both wives died around the age of 64. Mary Todd Lincoln died in 1882 at age 63 years and 215 days, and Jackie Kennedy died in 1994 at age 64 years 295 days.
#32 Both wives were known for their high fashion in clothes.
#33 Both wives renovated the White House after many years of neglect.
#34 Each couple had four children, two of whom died before becoming a teen.
#35 Each couple lost a son while in the White House. Willie Lincoln died at age 12 in 1862, and Kennedy's son Patrick died two days after his birth in 1963.

Politics

#36 Both presidents were elected to the House of Representatives in '46.
#37 Both were runners-up for the party's nomination for vice-president in '56.
#38 Both were elected to the presidency in '60.

Vice-Presidents

#39 Southern Democrats named Johnson succeeded both Lincoln and Kennedy (Andrew Johnson and Lyndon Baines Johnson.
#40 Andrew Johnson was born in 1808, and Lyndon Johnson was born in 1908.
#41 There are six letters in each Johnson's first name.
#42 Both Johnsons served in the military. Andrew was a brigadier general in the Civil War and Lyndon was a commander in the U.S. Navy during WW2.
#43 Both Johnsons were former southern senators.
#44 Both Johnsons had urethral stones, the only presidents to have them.
#45 Both Johnsons chose not to run for reelection in '68.

:raspberry Here's Snopes' critical dissection, originating in early 1964, of the legendary President Abraham Lincoln vs President John F. Kennedy's synchronous comparisons.

https://www.snopes.com/history/american ... ennedy.asp

To date they've yet to post up the two martyred president's "longest list" of life and death parallels.

Lincoln Was A Nazi

Post by Riddick » 11-01-2017 02:05 PM

Snopes should get with the times. Parallels between Lincoln and Kennedy? Pshaw! That doesn't BEGIN to address concerns of Social Justice Warriors. They like to equate The Donald with Hitler; Didn't it all start with the 1st Republican president?

To accommodate the sensibilities of Far Left historical hysterics, it's more than time Snopes shift its focus to striking similarities 'twixt so-called 'Honest' Abe & Adolf! -

An "A" begins their 1st names.
They were both White Males.
Each had idiosyncratic Facial Hair.
Both led Armed Hostilities against neighboring sovereign states.
They used Social Pretexts to excuse Aggressive Autocratic ambitions.

Image

While minimal, as a list it needn't be all inclusive as it hits the high notes and links Lincoln to the Fascist Profile along with Schicklgruber, Drumpf, Columbus, et al -

What's more, SJWs with
Trump Derangement Syndrome may find a source of comfort in the fact BOTH Lincoln and Hitler died of gunshot wounds while in office.

Maybe someone should compile a list of similarities between Snopes and Goebbels' propaganda office.............. :roll:

:) Many thanks U-2 for re-inspiring myself and the 4 potential, but quite shy yet guests to visit these 3 fresh posts this day. I was not aware of the existence of "Lincoln was a nazi" but I am now thanks to Riddick! :o Next thing you know they'll be showing parallels between hitler and God!

:wink: Right kbot, snopes' Dave Mikkelson deserves a club foot too! :P

Edited by yours truly on 11/2/17, also noted below :lol: in a line never seen at Mysterial in the UK! :mrgreen:

Old Dave scrubbed my snopes membership long ago after I wrote to him that he was simply "weird". Yep, that one word did it! He'd posted a derogatory thread about WW II and US military history's most decorated soldier Lt. Audie L. Murphy. The 8 to 10 member's comments, including mine, were all 100% positive :raspberry: Mikkelson had wronged our nations late war hero!

As much as I have disliked snopes and it's originator. I am happy kbot and Riddick contributed to this very old, well worn urban legend beginning in the Winter sometime in late 1963 or early 1964.

:shock: That was a great choice up there Riddick! :idea:

Prayers to God helped the combined Allied militarys defeat the insane nazi S.O.B.'s!

But wait :!: There's more just like them :twisted: world wide for us to pray to God for their downfall. Without "their" taking untold numbers of innocent lives before "they" go to Hell. :oops: Now that regular practice would be doing something worth "taking a knee" for all while saying your individual prayer for freedom. :D

:oops: Being up all night I got a little carried away up there. :rolleyes:

This web site at a long inactive Weird World News about the similarities about Presidents Kennedy and Lincoln contain many lines not included in the longest list!

I may copy and paste it here some day unless a brand spankin' new member beats me to it! :idea:

Maryals51, our newest, daring :shock: pirate from Anchorage, Alaska, has been holding that same spot for the whopping time of 1 year and 8 months! :hourglass
