RFK Jr. appeared before a congressional hearing this week. Why exactly he was there, is still a bit of a mystery. Allegedly, the hearing was about censorship. The problem was that RFK Jr. is not an expert on censorship on any level. No one has ever “silenced” him, even when he says ridiculous or just flat-out false things. And, to the best of anyone’s knowledge, he doesn’t have any specialized study in the field either.

Oh, there is one thing. He has declared his candidacy for President as a Democrat, meaning he is challenging Joe Biden. “Challenging” might be a bit strong of a word. Running a spoiler campaign is more appropriate, perhaps. Maybe the most “challenging” part of his campaign has been trying to find actual Democrats who support him, especially after hearing what comes out of his mouth. Anti-vax and anti-Semitic statements have been his calling card for years now.

What is known about his candidacy is that it appears to be funded by GOP donors. The same people who are feeding Trump and DeSantis money, are sending it to Kennedy as well.

And that appears to be why Jim Jordan welcomed him with proverbial open arms to his hearing.

It didn’t go well for him, and probably didn’t work out how Jordan and his allies envisioned it. RFK Jr. wasn’t skilled or charming in his testimony. And his denials about his past words were easily shown to be lies.

RFK Jr. claimed in his sworn congressional testimony, “in my entire life and why I’m under oath, in my entire life, I have never uttered a phrase that was either racist or antisemitic,” CNN fact-checked his claims and found them to be totally false.

In a segment titled, “RFK Jr. Denies He Said Things He Said,” Dana Bash showed viewers video of Kennedy speaking before Congress Thursday, denouncing antisemitism and racism, and saying, “these are the most disgusting pejoratives, and they’re applied to me to silence me.”

Bash weighed in: “You just heard it. ‘Defamations, distortions, misrepresentations, reading between the lines’,” she said, adding that RFK Jr. “offers an answer for every accusation, but believing him – that he’s just a contrarian, and that he’d never spread hate – requires ignoring his own words.”

She then played a portion of the now-infamous video of RFK Jr. claiming “there’s an argument” that COVID-19 is “ethnically targeted.”

“COVID-19 is targeted to attack caucasians and Black people,” he says in the video. “The people that are most immune are Ashkenazi Jews and Chinese.”

“That kind of denial,” Bash continued, “showing up over and over in this hearing. Listen to Mr. Kennedy say something that he never said.”

CNN played damning video of Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL) in Thursday’s congressional hearing, asking Kennedy about COVID-19 masks and Jews trying to escape the Holocaust.

“Do you think it was easy for Jewish people to escape systematic slaughter of Nazis? Yes or no?” she asked.

“Absolutely not,” Kennedy protested.

“Do you think it was just as hard to wear a mask during COVID as it was to hide under floorboards or false walls, so you weren’t murdered or dragged to a concentration camp?”

“Of course not,” Kennedy angrily declared. “That’s ridiculous.”

“That’s a comparison you made,” the Florida Democrat told him.

“I did not make that comparison,” Kennedy insisted.

“Except he did,” Bash said in correcting him.

Then CNN played video of Kennedy speaking at a rally, making that comparison.

“Even in Hitler’s Germany, you could cross the Alps into Switzerland, you could hide in an attack, like Anne Frank did,” Kennedy said.

“Today, the mechanisms are being put in place, that will make it so none of us can run, and none of us can hide.”
