Larry Hancock Posted December 4, 2022 Share Posted December 4, 2022 I would second David and its important to remember that Oswald himself had two very long term personal views (long term for a short life at least, dating back to his teen age years). He was demonstrably socialist and Marxist in his beliefs and worldview but he was also very anti-racist (if you doubt either, read his public statements in Russia and then read the monographs he wrote in 62/63). Both his socialist and anti-racist views show up consistently as well as in 1963, his writings and the speech he gave in early fall were both solidly against radical nationalism and the ultra right. Given that consistency, the thought that he would be "infiltrating" the ultra right in both Dallas (per the statement to Michael Paine) and later in New Orleans would make perfect sense - with the goal of exposing them and their activities (very possibly to the FBI as he was seeking to expose the anti-Castro exiles in NO). Not to mention Marina's snarky "hunter of Fascists" note on the back of the photo left in the records that the DeMohrenschield's had loaned them. Two things that can be said about Oswald was that he marched to his own drummer, and he had no fear about pursuing his beliefs - he also didn't take orders well at all, not in military, not in Russia, not at work back in the US.
