FACT CHECK: DID JFK PLAN TO EXPOSE A PLOT TO ‘ENSLAVE EVERY MAN, WOMAN AND CHILD’ BEFORE HE WAS ASSASSINATED?

An image shared on Facebook claimed that President John F. Kennedy spoke of a “plot in this country to enslave every man, woman and child” just one week before he was assassinated.

Verdict: False

There is no indication that Kennedy said this days before his assassination, or at any other time.

Fact Check:

While conspiracies theories about Kennedy’s assassination have existed for years, this theory implies that Kennedy was killed to keep him from exposing some sinister plot to “enslave” citizens of the U.S.

“There’s a plot in this country to enslave every man, woman and child. Before I leave this high and noble office, I intend to expose this plot,” the image claims Kennedy said a week before he was assassinated.

Kennedy was assassinated in Texas on Friday, Nov. 22, 1963. Seven days before that would have been Friday, Nov. 15. On that day, Kennedy gave a speech to the AFL-CIO where he talked about the economy. The quote from the image does not appear in that speech in full or in part.
