Robert F. Kennedy Jr. is a not only a scion of the most famous political family in modern American history, but for the establishment, he also represents the most potentially damaging figure to throw his hat in the presidential ring in recent years.
Bearing the most popular surname in U.S. politics, Kennedy has nevertheless been in the regime’s crosshairs, partly for his Children’s Health Defense website, which the regime claims has been promoting vaccine “misinformation” and “disinformation” for over twenty years and partly for his opposition to the proxy war in Ukraine. Kennedy’s bestselling tome, The Real Anthony Fauci: Bill Gates, Big Pharma, and the Global War on Democracy and Public Health, is on the regime’s equivalent of the Index of Forbidden Books. He’s been savaged and smeared for recent remarks in which he said that covid has differentially affected blacks and whites more than Ashkenazi Jews and the Chinese. Kennedy has not only denounced the covid lockdowns and vaccination regime but he has also struck at the heart of the deep state with his suggestions that the assassinations of his uncle, President John F. Kennedy, and his father, Robert F. Kennedy, were orchestrated by the CIA. That is, he argues that elements in the state murdered a sitting president and a presidential candidate.
So far, Kennedy’s political assassination has been undertaken with propaganda, lies, and defamation of character. Kennedy even faces the ritual condemnation of his own family members and is reviled by the contemporary Democrat Party establishment. They have called him a “conspiracy theorist” and have dragged his name through the mud with accusations of racism and antisemitism. They’ve even tried to weaponize his own mother against him.
The latest travail for the candidate came during a recent hearing of The House Select Subcommittee on the Weaponization of Government. If Kennedy didn’t already know what a snake’s nest he had just entered, he would soon find out.
The committee has been convening to expose, or, in the case of the Democrats, to obscure and conceal, among other outrages, the censorship conducted by social media companies at the behest of a federal government operated by the Biden regime. The Democrats had attempted to pre-censor Kennedy by forbidding his appearance altogether, under the specious claim that Kennedy traded in antisemitism. But the Republicans rebuffed this attempt and brought Kennedy in as a witness anyway.
After opening remarks by the committee chair Jim Jordan (R-Ohio), the top Democrat on the subpanel, Rep. Stacey Plaskett (D-VI), issued her opening remarks. Plaskett questioned why the meeting was taking place at all, suggested that the hearing had nothing to do with “inflation” and other matters of importance to the American people (ironically exacerbated by the policies of the Biden regime), and bewailed the fact that the committee was giving a platform to Kennedy, who she claimed is a spreader of misinformation, racism, and antisemitism. The moral indignation feigned by Plaskett was rich, especially given the recent revelations of her close connections to the pedophile ringleader, Jeffrey Epstein, which came to light in the lawsuit filed by the Virgin Islands against JP Morgan bank, Epstein’s longtime bankers. According to emails and her own sworn testimony, Plaskett solicited and accepted donations for her political campaign from Epstein, even after the pedophilia peddler and blackmailer served time for soliciting a child prostitute and was registered as a sex offender, and long after “Epstein Island” had been known. Plaskett subsequently won her election in 2014 in one of the “biggest upsets” in the political history of her district. After an earlier hearing of the subcommittee in question, Plaskett threatened journalist Matt Taibbi with jail time for his testimony regarding the Twitter files. The IRS ransacked Taibbi’s New Jersey home while he was giving testimony in D.C. Such is the ruthless and devious character of Kennedy’s primary opposition.
Kennedy was then set to begin his opening remarks, when the viperous Plaskett objected to the time allotted Kennedy, which she argued must be reduced to from ten to five minutes. Jim Jordan agreed, reluctantly, saying that if she wanted to censor Kennedy, then fine.
After Kennedy’s remarks on the importance of the First Amendment to a functioning “democracy,” along with useless appeals to have a “real conversation,” Congressperson Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-CA) moved to silence Kennedy again, with a motion to take the proceedings into executive session—that is, to make it a closed-door hearing without press coverage. Infamous for fixing the 2016 Democratic presidential primary in favor of Hillary Clinton over Bernie Sanders, Wasserman Shultz stated indignantly: “Pursuant to House Rule 11, Clause 2, which Mr. Kennedy is violative of, I move that we will move into executive session because Mr. Kennedy has repeatedly made despicable, anti-Semitic and anti-Asian comments as recently as last week…Mr. Kennedy, among many other things, has said, ‘I know a lot now about bioweapons. We put out hundreds of millions of dollars into ethnically targeted microbes. The Chinese have done the same thing. In fact, COVID-19, there is an argument that it is ethnically targeted. COVID-19 attacked certain races disproportionately. The races that are most immune to COVID-19 are…’”
Louisiana Republican Rep. Mike Johnson then made a motion to table Wasserman Schultz’s motion, asking, “Is it the custom of this committee to censor viewpoints that we disagree with from witnesses?” The motion to table Wasserman Schultz’s motion was passed along partisan (Republican) lines, but not before Virginia Democrat Rep. Gerry Connolly’s vote-by-gaslighting, during which he spouted, “No to the Soviet Politburo,” as if the committee investigating the USSA’s Politburo controlled by the Democrats was the Politburo itself.
Throughout the hearing, during which Kennedy repeatedly appealed to the now non-existent democratic values of free speech and fair play on the part of his “fellow Democrats,” the Democrats on the subcommittee revealed the depths to which their party has sunk and lengths to which they are willing to go to maintain their grip on totalitarian power. The contrast between the old-school Democrat and the contemporary Democrats could not have been made starker. Kennedy’s opponents from his own party doubled and tripled down on censorship and continued using what Kennedy himself called “targeted propaganda” and slander to destroy an apostate from their fold, one who still clings to ideals that they have long since jettisoned, and who bears the name of the most beloved Democratic president of all time.
The Democratic members of the Subcommittee on the Weaponization of Government displayed, in real time, the weaponization of the federal government and the totalitarian impulses that Kennedy has launched his candidacy to oppose.
No doubt, Kennedy’s assassins will carry on without remorse, validating the theory of the Kennedy curse.
