(GoRealNewsNow.com) – Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., who is challenging Joe Biden for the 2024 Democratic Party presidential nomination, was slammed today by his sister over recent comments concerning the COVID-19 virus.
CBS News, among numerous news outlets, reports about Kennedy’s comments as follows:
“‘COVID-19. There is an argument that it is ethnically targeted. COVID-19 attacks certain races disproportionately,’ Kennedy said at a recent dinner in New York City. The remarks were videotaped and first published by the New York Post on Saturday.
“‘COVID-19 is targeted to attack Caucasians and Black people. The people who are most immune are Ashkenazi Jews and Chinese,’ he continued, adding, ‘We don’t know whether it was deliberately targeted or not but there are papers out there that show the racial or ethnic differential and impact.’”
Today, in response to those comments, Kennedy’s sister, Kerry Kennedy, the president of Robert F. Kennedy Human Rights, a non-profit human rights advocacy organization, put out the following statement:
“I strongly condemn my brother’s deplorable and untruthful remarks last week about Covid being engineered for ethnic targeting. His statements do not represent what I believe or what Robert F. Kennedy Human Rights stands for, with our 50+ year track record of protecting rights and standing against racism and all forms of discrimination.”
This is not the first time Kerry has taken on brother Robert. When Robert announced his presidential candidacy, Kerry stated:
“I love my brother Bobby, but I do not share or endorse his opinions on many issues, including the COVID pandemic, vaccinations, and the role of social media platforms in policing false information. It is also important to note that Bobby’s views are not reflected in or influence the mission or work of our organization.”
While most political pundits believe Robert has no shot at winning the Democrat nomination, there is a growing belief that he could pull enough votes away from Biden to hand a victory to Donald Trump in the general election.
